Although Americans tourists are banned from entering the country, I went under the journalism category.
It's only an hour flight, Cuban visa can be bought during check-in at the airline counter before departure, just don't forget your passport. I exchanged dollars into their convertible  (CUC) pesos upon arrival. I stayed at an hostel next to the baseball stadium. I focused on videotaping their culture alone rather than being somewhat biased traveling group with their hectic schedule. One day took a Soviet era Lada taxi to outskirts of Havana to visit a Deaf school. They asked me what we Deaf Americans do with our obsolete TTY as we are using VP nowadays, hopefully some organizations will donate those equipment. I felt like was blasted into the past, surrounded by all those vintage automobiles.

Wetson's


My first job was working at Wetson's in Cos Cob, Connecticut flipping burgers during high school.

Moonlight Sonata

Moonlight Sonata is a new HBO documentary about a deaf boy playing the piano, just like Beethoven.

Contemporary Affairs


The Contemporary Affairs high school teacher at Rippowam requires us all to study the Sundays' New York Times, but it's too thick as ain't got the time to read it all, so I bought the thinner Daily News which is full of pictures and takes only a few minutes to read, just enough information to pass a quiz given every Wednesdays.  
Deaf Anthology encourages superintendents to invest in our Deaf youths, involving in newspaper in education programs where every individual Deaf child wakes up in the morning, picking up and reading a newspaper delivered to their dorm rooms. PTA can fund these worthwhile projects.

Tariffs


Trump imposed  150% tariffs on vibranium from Wakanda in the latest round of diplomatic splats over its refusal to recognize his presidency. 

Parasite



A new Korean film, "Parasite," with English subtitles won the Palmed'Or award at Cannes  is getting critics' attention, so check it out.

Friends


Imagine yourself being on the set of the popular sitcom, "Friends" which is now on tour in Boston after a successful stint in New York.

Marijuana


I signed a petition to legalized marijuana here in the state of Florida, putting the drug cartels out of business, reducing overcrowding in our prisons and using its "sin" taxes to support our public health programs, especially during the opiate crises.  

Cabbage Palmetto


I was asked in a survey if the Cabbage Palmetto should be the official state tree of Florida, I thought it was the palm trees. 

Orlando Dreamers

I will support a major league baseball team team here in Orlando, own a stadium skybox if I can afford it, that's why I been playing the lottery, hoping to hit the jackpot. The guy who bought the NBA into town hopes to the same with our national pastime, baseball, suggesting "Dreamers" as the new team. I think that sounds like a minor league team of hopefuls of making it to the majors Dreamers are somehow connected with Disney, as we already got the Magic, so why not we dedicate the team to our immigrants who achieved the American Dream, rather than the iconic mouse. Also, in my opinion, we should be open to suggestions from the public, I was thinking the "Orlando Snowbirds," to thank honor our tourists escaping the harsh winters up north. It'll also be an excellent promotion and marketing tool to attract the tourists of major league cities to take their vacation whenever their team are in town.

Obituary

via GIPHY
Just read an obituary in this morning newspaper about my Deaf friend who died crossing the street while it was under construction, a freak accident while not uncommon among us, I also noticed an increase of Deaf fatalities due to texting. I volunteered to be one of the pallbearers and the coffin was very light, wasn't that heavy, obviously. They just had to peel him off from the steamroller, and no charges will be filed against the operator, good riddance!

Niksen

We sometimes need a break from our stressful lives, meeting job deadlines, family problems, financial worries, and college exams, etc.I don't meant taking a vacation, that's also stressful enough.
We all need a timeout to do absolutely nothing, not even thinking, setting your mind free, Niksen is popular in the Netherlands among the Dutch, now I know why the Scandinavians lives longer than the rest of us.   

Hologram

The Roncalli Circus, based in Cologne, Germany are using three-dimensional holograms of elephants, I think it's a great idea, no more dung duty.

Bullitt

The Mustang that Steve McQueen drove in the movie ""Bullitt" will  soon be sold at in an auction.

Tweets

Let's assume that God gave his angels the pink slips, and uses twitter instead:
"TWEET OTHERS AS YOU WANT TO BE TWEETED"

Grandpa got off his rocker to play horsey,

 Holding on tight while dodging arrows,
  keep going until our imagination die.
The trails are wide and narrow.

CC Quality

I'm concern about the quality of closed-captioning system on our television screen, especially if the captions are left in its place when changing channels and the matter is worse when it remains there several days, frozen like ice until it melt away. Why errors on the digital standard channels while it's perfect on the HD channels, even if both of them are the same station. It's up to us to file a complaint with the station itself, or notified FCC so they can investigate the matter. Our industries have quality control over its products but not its content, the programming is fine but who is in charge of checking its closed-captions in a timely manner, is there an oversight committee in place. We Deafies are consumers, but why are we being neglected in the marketplace.

Cued Speech Myth

Commentary: Cued Speech original purpose was to teach speech to preschool Deaf children using it as a visual aid making it easier to lipread and it was only suppose to be temporary until they are immerse into an ASL environment at the elementary level. It was never intended to be a mode of communication, but somehow it backfired when an audist changes its philosophy.

Sexiest Deaf Man Alive

People Magazine came out this week with a list of sexiest men alive, I don't see any Deaf man on that list. If there is such a category of "Sexiest Deaf Man Alive," I think Lyle DiMarco will come out at top.

I'm sending them an e-mail their editor letting them know that know that: 

"I'm the sexiest reader alive, pah!

Richard Jewell

Clint Eastwood's Richard Jewell is another movie I'm looking forward, it's a story about a security guard that found a suspicious backpack at Centennial Park during the Atlanta Olympics and clearing the area, saving untold lives, being a hero then becoming a terrorist suspect. Just like Brian Banks in my previous blog, with the media tearing him apart, undergoing hours of FBI questionings, and fighting the same injustice. There is a new crop of films worthy of Oscar nominations this season.
Films: Midway (OC)
I'm exercising my rights, per ADA, to see all films in the subtitled ()C) format at the local theater.

Brian Banks

Brian Banks is a college football player falsely accused of rape, plea no contest no knowing that it meant that, in the eyes of the law, he's just as guilty, sentenced to prison when he thought he would get off on probation, putting on hold his dream of ever playing in the NFL. He's innocent, should be on the field, not behind bars, fighting injustice. A lawyer is his quarterback and the judge is the referee. I give this film a thumb-up, now available on DVD at the local Redbox.    

Maize

We Deaf learning a new word everyday, maybe you can learn something from reading blogs. Today's word, just in time for Thanksgiving is maize, which simply is another word for corn, I ain't no farmer but at least I learn something. 
I think our Deaf schools should teach us that there are other words that has the same meaning.

Jeans

There is a lot of Deaf cowboys out there, but most of us never rode a horse, we just wear their jeans, a symbol of America seen around the globe, in Western movies, Marlboro ads, line dancing and  bars playing cars. Now lets get down to business, we Deaf urban dwellers tends to wear Levi because we are Democrats and those Deaf in the rural areas tends to wear Wranglers because they are Republicans. Our nation is divided into Red and Blue states, and that believe it or not, politics does influence consumers' taste, and that includes boardroom decision making where Levi tends to be more liberal, supporting gun control, etc. Wrangler is just the opposite, being more conservative. It just can't be, why don't you take a poll yourself at the next Deaf gathering, asking them their political affiliation matches where they are wearing, then you will see what I mean.

Mail Truck

There is a lot of Deaf postal clerks, mail handlers and carriers at the Milwaukee processing and distribution center downtown and at the airport annex. I've heard lots of stories during my career. Here is the latest one, a mail truck diver being chased everyday by a turkey, instead of a dog in the  western suburbs of Pewaukee,  
I used to read the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel and watch WTMJ daily, checking out a video that gone viral. I hope the turkey survive the upcoming Thanksgiving traditions.

Mercury

If you are the only person in the whole park in the shade with no trees around, it's because Mercury is passing through overhead, it's not the solar eclipse, just a speck in the sun's eye this morning.

Goldfinger

You remember that movie "Goldfinger" starring Sean Connery as James Bond and wondering what in the title comes from, the author Ian Fleming probably noticed theses new tall skyscrapers going up around him while in London, they were designed by a Hungarian architect, Goldfinger, I thought it was a fictional character, and as a second thought, those skyscrapers aren't made of gold anyway, so why not "Steelfinger." I saw the Aston Martin DB5 sports car at the New York Auto Show as the coliseum.  

Berlin Wall

A press conference, an unintentional answer to a question, suddenly change the world, where the Berlin Wall collapses overnight, Checkpoint Charlie watches the Germans celebrate their newfound freedoms. I'll like to hear the testimonies of those Deaf who crosses the border thirty years ago today. This is probably the only instance where the divided Deaf community united as one. Actually the KGB plans to send in the tanks, but Gorbachev refuses to allow that, letting history unfold itself. Putin was in Dresden at that time, knew it was the beginning of the fall of the Soviet Union, now as its President, trying to reverse course, restore its glory past. A statue of Reagan was was send to Berlin, but the city has no vacant spot to erect the statue so now it stands on the roof of our embassy. 

Stretchers

If you visit London, you may overlook these fences which are used as stretchers during WWII.

Midway

There is a new movie out in the theaters now "Midway," lots of action with open-captions available in some areas. I just want to make one comment that this Hollywood blockbuster is financed by the Chinese. Yes, the Doolittle Raid is also mentioned in the film. Anyway, I going out to see the flick on Tuesday, as long as Trump don't get any ideas to add tar riffs  to the tickets.

Watchtower

Isn't it great having a cult spread man's ideology in 1,000 languages that denies the deity of Christ? The truth hasn't set them free yet. They ought to start using ASL (American Sign Language), not "Alternative Sign Language." Communism uses watchtowers in their "reeducation"  concentration camps to indoctrinated them to follow false teachings using corrupted bibles, discouraging us from living a life in the grace of God, being blind unable to question the doctrine. We practice freedom of religion here in America, fought wars to protect our rights at the expenses of pacifists that don't even vote. The Deaf are discourage from attending Gallaudet, life-saving medical treatment, and celebrating the upcoming Thanksgiving, etc. 
Jesus died on the cross, forgiving our sins, giving us hope of external life, in his resurrection.

Hands

There is a new bridge in the central mountains of Vietnam held up with a pair of hands.



Battery

A Minneapolis deaf man was arrested after getting into an argument with a store clerk who refuses to issue a refund or exchange a battery claiming that it's defective being unreachable. The judge release him on bail after an overnight in jail. The store clerk refuses to press battery charges against him, so the judge was lenient, allowing him to plea on a lesser charge of disorderly conduct, expecting him to volunteer with a local organization that distribute hearing aids and batteries to those with low income while on probation. Also, the judge order him to participate in an anger management class It's just not worth it being charged with battery over an nonchargeable battery. Since being on SSI, he now qualified to receive a supply of free batteries from the organization. I think that deaf guy needs to control his temper.

Osceola County Historical Society

Let's celebrate our local heritage with a reception, we expect an ASL interpreter at the event.

Race Tracks

If PETA has its way, they will banned both horse and greyhound racing but the folks at the Kentucky Derby and other race tracks around the country have a backup plan in place, which may proven to be more popular. I idea was tested recently in Auburn, Washington with tremendous successes.

Deaf Politics Today: Vote

"It is not important who votes, but who counts the votes."

Deaf Politics Today: Election Security

Why should the Russians try to hack our Presidential elections, what do they hope to gain from it. They will be better off hiring a lobbyist on their behalf or making a foreign contribution to their corrupt candidates, and also they can establish a political action committee to raise funds. We should worry about those mischievous raccoons as they are most likely to disrupt our elections than our enemies as we got cyber-security system in place to protect our nation. Raccoons are known to cause blackouts chewing on the electrical grids and hopefully it doesn't happen during the primaries or election day.  Secret Service agents once caught a raccoon stealing Jelly Beans from the Oval Office during the Reagan administration, Just recently here in Florida a raccoon got stuck in a vending machine, fattening himself, eating junk food.

Deaf Mugshots

I noticed some of our Deaf vloggers are ex-cons with long rap sheets, busted for drugs, frustrated in finding a decent job, and blaming audism.

Deaf - ish

Let's tackle a tough new subject, Deaf - ish, a new popular culture word I want to introduce to our vocabulary.  In our popular culture, Black - ish is a new  ABC television sitcom involving an African -American family dealing with the same sociopolitical issues that we Deaf are struggling with. Let's get into some details here, -ish is a suffix that identified the language and country we come from, such as being from England, speaking English. Same with being from Spain, speaking Spanish. Those Deafish MSSD are our bitter football rivals. The second definition is an adjective describing what it looks he looks like which can be used this way in a sentence: That guy is a foolish spending all his life savings on gambling. In our case we can use the word Deafish this way: That Deafish interpreter's Deaf parents are on the cruise with us. The third definition is a little more difficult used this way: The meeting will start at sixish (around six o'clock), Food will be served at eight, "Deafish time" Deafish to me is a Deaf thing!
 

Wisconsin: AB250

Isn't is great if your state legislator is fluent in ASL introducing a bill on the floor that improves on the interpreters' issue.   

Metric

There are only three countries in the world that don't uses the metric system of measurement:
United States of America, Liberia and Myanmar 

Deaf Politics Today: Gun Control

Yes, guns don't kill people. Words has killed more people than guns, I've seen them everywhere, it started with an argument, on the playgrounds, in the bars, on the streets, on our jobs and even in our homes. Bullying is the cause of school shootings, drunkenness is the cause of  bar bawl, gangs defending their turfs are the cause of violence on our streets, confrontations with your boss, and your husbands being unfaithful. Our police got a handful, and we don't need the President's tweets are making things worst, encouraging white trash to load up, and blasting us away. The President wants legislation to prevent those with mental illness from purchasing a gun. Hold it right there, aren't the mentally ill the ones that hearing voices in their head or the President's rhetoric. The NRA misuses the Constitution to defend their rights to bear arms, and I'm calling Thomas Jefferson from beyond the graves to spend a few moments with us to clarify their intentions when they wrote it, "we the colonists were at war with England, we got a ragtag militia, a few Deaf minutemen here and there, keeping their arms at home when off duty, protecting ourselves from Indians on our movement westward, and it comes in handy with horse thieves. We uses our pistols to settle a score in a  duel. We uses it mostly to hunt and protect our property. Thanks for taking me to your gun shows, those AK-47, wish we had them at Concord and Lexington, you don't need them in your household,  they are so dangerous that someone with a grudge can kills hundreds of innocence people in a minute. We minutemen takes several minutes to load up our muskets with gunpowder and a lead ball. I took Thomas Jefferson, to see the Hamilton play. Ben Franklin joins us, discussing gun controls during intermission, his wisdom is that he agrees with that ads he happenstance to see on a billboard on Broadway,  'What happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas," also applies to assault rifles and high capacity ammo being stored in the military where it belongs. He acknowledge criminal have guns, so does the Indians have axes, so what, you got a police force that "serves and protects" us all, keeping us all safe. 
If you need a registration to own a car, the same applies in gun ownership. If you need a permit to drive that car, the same  applies with guns, If you need to pass a driver's test, the same  applies with guns. If you need to take driver's education classes, then you should also take gun safety classes. If you need insurance on your car, then gun liability should be part of your home insurance policy. Prevent thefts, lock up your car and do the same with your guns. There are four category of gun ownership: collectibles, sports, hunting and home protection that information be be checked on your permit. You can be arrested if you try to get away with hunting when your permit limits you to home ownership. Driver's license has restrictions, so does gun permits. Anyone declined a permit after a background check can appeal requesting an interview with the local sheriff with a background in psychology. Background checks includes both fingerprint and DNA sampling that becomes part of a national database. I want to thank Thomas Jefferson for being able to socialize with us Deaf and leaving before the grim reaper notice his absence.  I don't know where Ben is, he was last seen flying a kite, we are expecting a thunderstorm tonight.

Legal Aid Society

Legal Aid Society will be discussing two major issues, housing discrimination and advanced directives so I encourages the Deaf Floridians to attend as we can benefit from this upcoming workshop in the fall, it's also an opportunity to socialize, making new friends. I know that Palm Beach got a great, strong Deaf community down there and the only obstacle I face is that is live within the state far. far away.

Deaf Politics Today: Memo

There are several conflicting news articles and television broadcasts about Trump visiting a Shell chemical plant now under construction on the Ohio River outside of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.
The Deaf thinks that workers are forced to attend the event or wouldn't be paid. That isn't so, according to Deaf Anthology research into the matter.
The topic of Trump speech is energy, I think it appears to be more of a campaign rally than an official White House visit. Once again, speaking off the cuff, ignoring the teleprompter. That meant, unfortunately, that our taxes, not the campaign are paying the expenses of gassing up the Air Force One, cases of hand sanitizers, tuning up the Presidential limousine and Secret Service protection, etc. The town, Main Street boarded up, are left behind unreimbursed  for services rendered.
Attendance is not mandatory, which meant that you are not required to attend the event. If it's your day off, then don't worry about it, you can read all about it the next morning papers or on the evening news, or even here in this new Deaf Anthology Deaf Political Today blogs.
Shell held training days several times a year for its workers, with several speakers, mostly about safety in the workplace, often boring lectures, until the President with his unpredictable character came to town along with vendors of MAGA red caps to sell. There is excitement in the air, everyone well-behaved, as you don't want to be fired protesting while on the clock. If you work a full shift, you'll get overtime pay, but if you decided not to to stay when President is there, you can take personal time off, being excused so it will not count against you. Shell hires several contractors, so one of them may have issue that controversial memo without management knowledge. If the blue collar workers think the whole thing unfair, he can file a grievance with his union steward, and they will investigate the matter which I think is discrimination due to political affiliation, and the issue resolved without going to arbitration, having a letter of mutual letter of understanding agreed upon and attached to the contract, so what's the big deal. 

Florida Kids & Family Expo

Deaf Anthology encourages Deaf families to attend the Florida Kids & Family Expo this weekend, you'll all have a great time together.

Florida Film Academy

2020


Trump won the Presidency, concentrating on Michigan, within the "Rust Belt" which his strategy to move into the White House. This time around, he is now focusing on Florida, his new strategy to avoid the eviction notice. If the Democrats can't get their act together, the Latinos, despite problems at the border, will regret their voting the Republican slate of candidates, feeling betrayed by Trump 's propaganda. You heard it here, you been forewarned,

Greenland

President Trump wants to buy Greenland but Denmark taken aback, refuses to sell.

Now More Than Ever

I remember that a Deaf child was in one of President Nixon campaign poster.

Speed Trap

My Deaf stepson and his friends earns a lot of money working together as a team in a speed trap zone, with one carrying a "cops ahead" sign and the other carrying a "tips here" sign down the road. That's why the state trooper hasn't caught any speeders today. 

Criticism

Criticism is something we can avoid easily by saying nothing, doing nothing, and being nothing.
Aristotle, Greek philosopher

Deaf Grassroots

I bought this "Deaf Power" t-shirt at a Deafnation Expo and worn it at our Deaf Grassroots rally, warning our politicians not to forsaken us.

Priceline

I didn't expect much when I went to the Priceline website to purchase a ticket to California, but Virgin America accepts my offer, saving quite a bit. I can avoid the baggage fees purchasing what I need when I arrive. Timing is critical, so I will be at the DeafNation Expo while visiting my family in San Francisco . On Priceline, I also booked a hotel, unknowingly that it was an official hotel of DeafNation paying less than their rates. I rather get around on Bart, not having to deal with traffic, we we Deafies pays half fares. The national parks were shutdown due budget impasses in Congress, but the Walt Disney museum was open. My Deaf stepson took me to Napa valley to enjoy wine tasting then return to have dinner at the Mozzeria, Deaf owned Italian restaurant.

Tree of Life

The Unisphere was the symbol of the 1964/65 New York World's Fair.

Fall Foliage

Enjoying the fall foliage along the Connecticut River on the Valley Railroad with dinner abroad. 

Idol


Mickey Mouse is our idol, that's why our family and friends rather be in the theme parks than visiting us.

Golden Spike

It's unbelievable that this Deaf hiker, heading West alongside the tracks suffers no injuries whatsoever, not even a scratch. "All I can remember is that I picked up a golden spike and held it, when I felt the vibration underneath me, and then, in fear, facing the inevitable as the California Zephyr which ran through my body as if I was invisible." Amtrak unable to explain the paranormal event, nevertheless decided not to press charges for trespassing, citing he's "lucky to be alive." The Deaf suspects the ghosts of the Deaf Chinese railroad laborers saved his life.

Mensa


A twelve years old Deaf British boy with an IQ of 162 recently join the Mensa organization, an organization of geniuses. 

Fish

 
This symbol, a fish, identified Christian gatherings during the Roman Empire.
                                                                             

Insensitivity

"I thought you were dead!" That's exactly what my friend told me when I met him at the Deafway II. I know that he's not being insensitive to my feelings, he meant we haven't seen each others since our days at Gallaudet. When he, a heavy smoker, died of lung cancer, I think back of that comment. I admit I felt a sense of relief when another died of a massive heart attack, meaning he taking his grudge against me to the grave with him. One vlogger has an enemy list, recently found out one has pancreatic cancer, made an "insensitive" comment, no need to add any more labels to it, one is enough, really can't wait to scratch off his name. One's lifespan can be shorten by such "insensitive" comment, but really no need to be in an anger mood if we already know his character, so you should expect that. Just be thankful it's not an eulogy. We all got skeletons in our closets, so why fear being exposed of the fact. Gossips among the Deaf is just that. I can't scream to stop the world from spinning. Often when an individual post his "insensitive" remarks, probably also has a "death wish" himself. I ain't got much faith but to pray that he'll be in remission, so he'll be on his nerves a bit longer. I question our purpose of being on this world, the only way to escape the reality of death is live the fantasy life of being immortal. I meant no disrespect but this vlogger is damn good, knowing his stuff, it's the controversially that attracts me, earning my respect while most of us may be impatient. Deafies loves drama, but I accept all bloggers just being themselves, not trying to be judgmental, as long we can freely agree/disagree whatever being discussed at the moment. The only thing negative, a weakness, about me is that I tend to use sarcasm, perhaps I'm guilty of being insensitive myself. Criticism is not my bag, it's just my personal opinion on this subject.
