in Washington, D.C. is a liberal arts college and graduate school for the deaf (there's also a high school and primary school
). In 1988, Gallaudet students protested when a hearing person was chosen as university president,
and until today, I. King Jordan
has served. Recently, a new president was chosen--Dr. Jane K. Fernandes
, the school's Provost, who was born deaf but grew up speaking thanks to new therapies and technologies. A varied, vibrant student body never afraid to make their "voices" heard has spoken (with photos)
. Last night, so did a majority of the faculty
, but Dr. Fernandes says she will stay.

Painkillers destroy hearing
- Looks like America's fascination with Vicodin, Oxycotin, and other hardcore painkillers has a lasting effect other than addiction. Studies are showing that "rapid hearing loss, even deafness, in some patients who are misusing the drugs". This is serious enough for Vicodin's manufacturer to add a "warning about the potential for hearing loss to the drug's label."
Is Rush Limbaugh's sudden deafness
and recent involvement in a painkiller drug investigation
simply a coincidence?

is a terrific resource containing electronic game reviews with the hearing-impaired in mind. Digging a little deeper, I found a still-in-work but promising Gamers With Disabilites FAQ
hosted by Gone Gold
. We all love to play games and the resources contained herein will hopefully help us all play better. Any other resources out there that you'd like to share?

Rush Limbaugh has gone deaf.
While he can recognize sound, he cannot understand it, including callers to his radio show. He's working around it now (somehow), but may have to change his format in the near future. Rush's site is being hit hard, but you can find a transcript of his monologue here
