KODA in Kindergarten Holiday Concert

December 11, 2013 1 comment

Holy moly, this is adorable. While belting out a Christmas song at a school concert, a KODA (kid of deaf adult) performed sign language so her hearing-impaired mom could understand the lyrics.

The video, which captures a group of kindergartners singing a Christmas song to the tune of “Bingo was his name-o,” was recorded by proud mother Lori Koch. Her daughter, 5-year-old Claire, is the blonde in the middle, the one giving a performance worthy of tossed roses and a standing ovation.

My 14 days vacation in Cuba

June 8, 2012 3 comments

By JFLMad

Summary:

I went on 14 days vacation to Cuba through Deaf Cuban owner agency, Haydee Garcia called Deaf Cuba Travel. I traveled with 25 other deaf from different states and I was the youngest among the group. I went from the easternmost city of Cuba called Pinar del Rio and all the way to the westernmost city of Baracao. I am showing you some short clips of video throughout my experience in Cuba and it is not enough! I have met several deaf local Cubans in almost all cities that I visited. Very interesting and they were very friendly! For your information, you may have heard some stories that Americans can’t visit Cuba at all. They are WRONG! I went there with no problem at all and the trip process was exact like when you are going to Europe! Nothing’s different and I think the media really causes this whole different perspective of Cuba! I did bought and brought Havana Club rum and few Cohiba cigars here with no problem at all. I made it through Customs security.

If you are interesting in going to visit Cuba, feel free to contact Haydee Garcia by visiting her website at http://www.deafcubatravel.com

You can also visit other Cuba videos that my parents went a year ago by going to past articles or click here: Cuba trip part 1 and part 2 to 9. Type search box Cuba in here and you will find more videos! Enjoy and many thanks!

Message from John Tc Yeh

Last week a federal judge sentenced John T.C. Yeh, former CEO of Rockville deaf services business Viable, to nine years in prison and ordered him to pay restitution of $20 million for his role in a multimillion-dollar government fraud case. About 100 people attended the court for John’s case. They were supporting him. Most of them were from the Deaf community.

John TC Yeh is heartbroken for what he did. He loves the Deaf community and wishes to share the statement he gave at the court with everyone. See his statement below.

Bernard Bragg visited The Haunted Hotel

BB signs “Ghost”

By Bug

Estes Park, Colorado is known for the Stanley Hotel, named as one of the top ten haunted hotels in the United States, inspiring Stephen King to write his famous Novel, “The Shining”. The hotel has many ghost stories but no of which have been violent so it seems that the ghostly residents are just residents. Many staff and guests of that hotel reported on hearing the piano in the Ballroom being played, when they investigated and found no one at the piano or anywhere in the Ballroom. On the fourth floor, many visitors may hear the squeals of children playing echoing down the hallway.

Bernard Bragg and his friends went to Stanley Hotel for lunch. He is nationally known as a performer, playwright, writer, and educator. He has done many different things such as being a director/ playwright, an artist, a poet, and a writer. He is known as “BB”.

We were aware that hotel is one of the most famous ghost stories of all time. We decided to take a tour. We stopped by the room #217, the same room that Stephen King stayed in and reported a maid’s ghost in it. BB told a short story about the maid’s ghost. See video below.

Visitors can take a ghost tour of the Stanley Hotel where they will learn about the history and haunting of the hotel. If you are interested in staying at the hotel in Estes Park or getting spooked, come and stop by.
