Barriers we live in…

Have you ever take a step back and analyze situation you face in this world? There are times when we forget who we are… an outsider. Unfortunately, no one can be told what it’s like. Experience is the best teacher we can learn from. Every obstacle we face is our job to seize the opportunity and use it to our advantage. What you’re about to see is a video that closely remind our daily lives we face. We’ve come a long way, but it’s fascinating that this problem still exist where technology are readily available for us. continue »

Deaf Protest – One Guy’s Opinion…

6 CommentsBy | Jun.05, 2009 | Filed in: Blogs

Okay folks – I just got an email about a pending protest that some deaf individuals are planning to have on June 16th.  Now I am going to have to admit, I am really bothered by this approach.  I am speaking from a personal level – this approach in my opinion will not reflect positively with us and the deaf community.  We, the deaf community have already been reflected negatively by the people from our two protests at Gallaudet.  The first one was acceptable and totally understandable – but the second one people were like again?? continue »

Deaf Restaurant Manager

1 CommentBy | Dec.18, 2008 | Filed in: Blogs

DeafNation has a video about Nancy Watson who happens to be a restaurant manager. She works at Kona Grill in Illinois which is a very nice restaurant that serves Japanese food. What’s really interesting is how she seized the opportunity and the way she handled everyday situation. Restaurants are pretty much everywhere and there are no sign of shortage. If your goal is to be a manager at a restaurant then head over to DeafNation and see how she did it.

Define your own reputation or let others define it for you…

6 CommentsBy | Nov.23, 2009 | Filed in: Blogs,Headlines

No matter what reputation we uphold, people like you and me will always pass some kind of judgment. If you, by any small chance, believe that you do not judge, then you are simply a hypocrite, in denial, ignorant and/or delusional. Every history, media, and social aspect have proved time after time that we ALL pass some kind of judgment towards people. Don’t believe me? Then read on…

Judgment and reputation are two words that constantly revolve around us. There’s no way to avoid it continue »

Defining professionalism…

9 CommentsBy | Dec.16, 2008 | Filed in: Articles,Blogs

A few years ago, there were articles floating around about removing the word “Professional” in DPHH. I thought it would be a good opportunity to bring this topic back and express my views. Sometime in 2004 or 2005, a guy sent me email suggesting that I follow the same path that Dallas/Forth Worth took. Before reading my correspondent, I renamed this person to John Doe for his sake of privacy. I’ve also took out the excessive info to get the point.

1 CommentBy | Jun.12, 2009 | Filed in: Blogs

This email caught my eye & I can’t help but smile at the similarities in the feelings expressed now and back during the first protest at Gallaudet University for a “Deaf President Now” in March, 1988. Dr. Patti Singleton responded to my posting on Deafnetwork. So I have asked for permission to post her response here on so you as the individual can read it here.

RespondBy | Apr.18, 2011 | Filed in: Blogs

DPHHH is a personal project that I’ve worked on since 2003. It was a way to give back to the community by helping both deaf and hearing professionals to connect and share experiences. Through the years, technology has changed the way we communicate. continue »

Evolution: It’s Everybody’s Evolution

Some of you know me, and some of you don’t. Well, let me introduce myself. My name is Myo but goes by Mike. The best word that describes me would probably be, “tolerant”.

My parents told me give respect to all those I met, no matter what race, religion, skin color, appearance, or what have you a person was. continue »

Let's Play By the Rules…

2 CommentsBy | Apr.06, 2009 | Filed in: Blogs

As some of you folks might know, I am an avid sports fanatic.  I love sports of all kinds and I usually participate in various of sports along with other deaf individuals.   But it was kind of funny, I run a site for a particular sport, (and there was even a discussion about this in Facebook for another sport).  Well one of the discussion was based on how we keep changing the rules every year to benefit “US”.   Now that “US” really annoys me, keep in mind these are deaf people voting and modifying the rules here.   Well point being is for softball there are a few associations like the National Softball Association (NSA), Amatuer Softball Association (ASA), and United Sports (something – USSSA).   continue »
