FCC'S NEW CLOSED CAPTIONING RULES HAD LONG JOURNEY
Closed captioning is designed to help the deaf and hearing-impaired enjoy television and receive important news and weather reports. Unfortunately, captions are often riddled with typos and incomplete sentences that leave viewers struggling to make sense of what is being said. On Thursday, the Federal Communications Commission chairman issued new rules that the regulatory agency hopes will improve closed captioning, which is mandated by the 1996 Telecommunications Act. / Los Angeles Times

LAWSUIT PROMPTS BIG CHANGES IN PUEBLO'S TREATMENT OF DEAF PRISONERS
During the seven months Michaelee Owen spent in Pueblo County Jail back in 2012, he was never provided with either a sign-language interpreter or a device that would have allowed him to communicate with anyone -- even his own mother.

A family is desperately trying to raise £65,000 ($108,000 US) so they can take their deaf son to Italy for a pioneering operation which will allow him to hear for the first time.

H STREET NE BARS AND RESTAURANTS REACH OUT TO THEIR DEAF NEIGHBORS
“Are you ready to start?” the trivia announcer shouts into the microphone at H Street NE restaurant Vendetta. Silence.

HEARING LOSS AND FALLING
Research has shown that for people in their 40's and later, having a hearing loss triples the risk of falling down, regardless whether the hearing loss is moderate or severe. Possible explanations are that people who can't hear well might not have good awareness of their overall environment, making tripping and falling more likely. / Coeur d'Alene Press
