PROPOSAL TO DOWNSIZE TEXAS SCHOOL FOR THE DEAF STIRS ANGER
The Texas School for the Deaf sits on 67 acres in between South 1st and South Congress. It looks more like a small college campus than a traditional school building. But then again, says school superintendent Claire Bugen, this isn't a traditional school. She says the school is no longer the asylum it was built to be back in the late 1800s. But even with innovations like online classes, and local districts simply making an effort to accommodate deaf students, the school is home to more than 500 students, with about half of them living on campus. / The Texas Tribune

SCIENTISTS WARN OF A 'DEAF GENERATION' AS DAILY NOISE POLLUTION REACHES SATURATION LEVELS
A "deaf generation" exposed to constant noise may be losing the ability to hear as nature intended, a sound expert has claimed. As a result people could be missing out on the positive effects from natural sounds that contribute to good health and well-being, research suggests. Dr. Kurt Fristrup, who has monitored sound levels in 90 US national parks including Yosemite, Grand Teton and the Grand Canyon, stressed that hearing is a 'universal learning sense' active even when we are sleeping or anaesthetized. / Daily Mail

LAWSUITS SAY HARVARD, MIT WEBCASTS LEAVE OUT DEAF AMERICANS
An advocacy group for the deaf on Thursday sued Harvard University and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, saying the prestigious schools had violated laws by posting online video and audio recordings for public use that lacked accurate captions. Two lawsuits charged that Harvard and MIT said the webcast recordings were intended to provide the public free access to the schools but were unusable by people with difficulty hearing because they either lacked captions or had captions that were so poor as to be unusable. / Reuters

DEAF WOMAN SUES HOSPITAL, SAYS ADA VIOLATED WHEN DAUGHTER DIED
A Franklin Township woman, who is deaf since birth, has filed a lawsuit in federal court alleging that a local hospital and its affiliates violated the Americans with Disabilities Act by denying her an interpreter when her daughter lay dying. Colleen Shaika said in the suit she "was unable to be informed of her daughter's medical condition." The suit accuses the defendants of causing "emotional distress, humiliation, anguish, emotional and physical injuries, as well as economic losses" to the mother. / Times-News

FCC TO PUT NEW FOCUS ON DISABILITIES
The federal agency tasked with regulating telephones, television and other communications technology is looking for advice on how to better serve people with disabilities. The Federal Communications Commission is convening a disability advisory committee for the first time. The 40-member panel, which will hold its first meeting in March, will advise and provide recommendations to regulators on topics ranging from the accessibility of 911 services to closed captioning and telecommunications relay services. / Disability Scoop

ALUM EMPOWERS KIDS AT FLORIDA SCHOOL FOR THE DEAF AND BLIND
An 18-month-old, born deaf and with limited vision, had no way of understanding her world or being understood. Teachers sat on the floor and worked with her one-on-one, folding her fingers into one word again and again. Two weeks later, when she’d had enough, she signed the word she’d been taught: Finished. A teacher with 30 years experience cried. That’s what happens at the Florida School for the Deaf and the Blind (FSDB), where sixth-graders swim with manatees, the varsity football team routinely beats area high schools and a world-renowned jazz alum attracted a 60 Minutes crew. / Illinois State University Stories

CENTER FOR THE DEAF MARKS MILESTONE
Next month, members of the Jacksonville Community Center for the Deaf will celebrate 30 years of providing services and stengthening social ties in the city’s substantial and active deaf community. Bob Anderson, 84, was instrumental in the founding of the JCCD and in securing space for the group to call its own. “We were looking for a place to be, where we could socialize and where deaf people could meet,” said Anderson, who is deaf. / Jacksonville Journal Courier

LETTER: PROPOSED SERVICE CUTS WOULD FURTHER ISOLATE BLIND, DEAF RIDERS
AURORA of Central New York is a not-for-profit agency serving people with vision or hearing loss. Because our consumers are primarily users of Centro's fixed route and Call-A-Bus services, we are deeply concerned that the New York state budget does not include any increase in funding for fiscal year 2015-16. Unless Centro receives additional funding from the state, it will be necessary to drastically cut service hours during the week and eliminate services entirely on Sundays and holidays. / Syracuse.com

According to police, Begano was involved in robberies spanning from the Denver area to Pueblo, and each time she targeted an elderly victim.

The family of a Manitoba man who died after spending the night outdoors is devastated and still has questions about what led him into the cold. Clifford Beaulieu, 42, was taken to hospital after police found he had spent the night outdoors. He died of his injuries. Beaulieu was spending time with some friends at a home Feb. 4. He left and never returned. "I know he froze from the elements and that, but why let him leave the house like that, and not, you know, check on him, see where he went?" said Martin Beaulieu, Clifford's brother. / CBC News

HUMAN RIGHTS TRIBUNAL REJECTS DEAF WOMAN'S CLAIM AGAINST B.C. CASINO
The B.C. Human Rights Tribunal has rejected the case of a deaf woman who claimed discrimination after a Langley, B.C., casino repeatedly asked her to stop using sign language at the table while a hand was in play. Jenny Alexander has been deaf since she was six months old, and is considered a "regular" at Gateway's Cascades Casino in Langley, 55 km outside Vancouver, where she'd often go with a friend who is also deaf. Her friend can read lips a little bit, but Alexander can only communicate through writing or signing. / canoe.ca

DEVICE WOULD HELP DEAF CHILDREN DETECT SOUNDS
At age 3, Angelica Lopez is helping to break a sound barrier for deaf children. Born without working auditory nerves, she can detect sounds for the first time — and start to mimic them — after undergoing brain surgery to implant a device that bypasses missing wiring in her inner ears. Angelica is one of a small number of U.S. children who are testing what’s called an auditory brainstem implant, or ABI. The device goes beyond cochlear implants that have brought hearing to many deaf children but that don’t work for tots who lack their hearing nerve. / The Associated Press

SIGNS OF FAITH: MASS WITH PITTSBURGH'S CATHOLIC DEAF COMMUNITY
The 11:30 Sunday Mass at St. Mary of the Mount Catholic Church begins with the usual greetings and an unusual request — that parishioners remain seated during the hymns and other parts of the liturgy where they normally would stand. That’s so members of the Catholic Deaf Community, who form an integral part of the service, can see their colleagues as they sign the prayers, hymns, Bible readings and other parts of the liturgy. In fact, it’s so the hearing members can see them, too. / Patheos

SOUND-AWARENESS APP DEVELOPER RAISES $1.45M
Speech pathologist Sebastien Christian was made aware by a colleague of the need for sound recognition software to make members of the deaf and hard-of-hearing communities aware of critical sounds like smoke alarms and sirens. She impressed upon him the stress and insecurity of being alone without the reassurance of something that can alert people like her to potential danger. So he formed mobile health company OtoSense, which is raising $1.45 million to advance the development of an app. / Med City News

LET'S REVIEW: A LOUD SILENCE, DEAF ARTISTS EXPLORE SOUND
Art can be of great value in helping us look at concepts like “difference” and “equality” in new ways. It can even speed the process of our social evolution. The Calit2 gallery (California Institute for Telecommunications and Information Technology) on the UC San Diego campus is one place where they are not afraid to do this and that makes it worthy of our attention. The latest show at Calit2 is called “LOUD silence.” It’s about sound and hearing and explores the question, “What do deaf people really hear?” / La Jolla Light
