THE LEGACY OF GALLAUDET'S 'DEAF PRESIDENT NOW' MOVEMENT
Since its founding in the mid-19th century, Gallaudet University has been an academic and cultural hub for the Deaf community. But until 1988, the university never had a deaf president. Twenty-five years ago this week, students launched a protest on the Northeast D.C. campus, dubbed the "Deaf President Now" movement. The protest resulted in the school's first deaf president, and helped spur passage of the Americans with Disabilities Act two years later. Kojo explores the legacy of student protests at Gallaudet. / WAMU

PROVIDENCE WOMAN'S BODY FOUND IN DRUM IN NYC
A young woman from Providence was the victim of a gruesome murder in New York City. The body of 19-year-old Francis Alfonso Pellerano was found in a 55-gallon drum inside a Harlem apartment over the weekend. "I always knew that something was going to happen to her. I wasn't sleeping at night," the victim's father, Manuel Alfonso, told NBC 10 News through a translator. Pellerano was deaf and could not speak. She was a student at the Rhode Island School for the Deaf on and off for about five years, until she left the school late last year. / NBC 10

DEAF MAN BEATEN AND ROBBED IN WEST HAVEN
Police are investigating the robbery of a hearing-impaired man in West Haven early Sunday morning. The man was walking near the intersection of West Spring Street and Stevens Avenue around 4:15 a.m. when three men approached him with a handgun, pistol-whipped the victim and took his wallet and phone, then fled in a black-and-white Honda sedan, police said. The victim suffered cuts on his face and was taken to the hospital for treatment. / NBC Connecticut

DEAF, MUTE MAN ROBBED OF $9 AT HOTEL
A man who authorities described as "deaf and mute" was robbed of $9 during an incident that occurred early Wednesday morning on Nebraska Avenue, according to a report from the Tampa Police Department. A man later identified as Lewis Carr, 31, approached the unidentified victim in the parking lot of the Casa Loma Motel. Carr tried to engage the victim in a conversation, but the victim is deaf and mute, and was unable to respond. That's when things took a turn for the worse. / Patch.com

ENGLEWOOD SETTLES WITH DEAF SUSPECT WHO DIDN'T GET INTERPRETER
A settlement agreement between a deaf man and the Englewood Police Department requires the department to provide qualified sign-language interpreters to deaf people who are arrested, questioned or detained. The agreement, announced Friday, is the result of a federal lawsuit filed by William Lawrence and the Colorado Cross-Disability Coalition last May. The suit claims that on Aug. 13, 2011, Lawrence was arrested at his home on an outstanding warrant from Jefferson County. Englewood police refused to offer or provide Lawrence with a sign-language interpreter during his questioning. Police also handcuffed him. / The Denver Post

MEDIA SPOTLIGHTS THREATS TO DEAF SCHOOLS
This month, a hit television show put a spotlight on a topic rarely discussed in the media: threats to schools for the deaf across the nation. This critically important issue was the main story in Switched at Birth, a popular show on ABC Family. The March 4th episode was aired entirely in American Sign Language and the story was so popular it even had its own hashtag: #takebackcarlton. The National Association of the Deaf strongly believes that every educational opportunity must be available to all deaf and hard of hearing children to ensure optimal achievement. / NAD

LOCAL SCHOOL FOR DEAF CHILDREN FACES FINANCIAL UNCERTAINTY
Chris Schuette is determined to give his two-and-a-half year old daughter an independent life. Just 48 hours after Isla was born Chris and his wife were told their newborn was severely deaf. Isla received two cochlear implants when she turned one. She cried the first time she heard sound. Today, she's learning how to make sound with the help of teachers at Northern Voices. The non-profit school has severed hundreds of deaf and hard of hearing children for the last 15 years. Now the school that has helped so many is in need of its own. / kare11.com

EDITORIAL: AID THE SCHOOL FOR THE DEAF AND THE BLIND
Budgets and wages can be complicated matters. But let’s keep things simple regarding employees at the Montana School for the Deaf and the Blind in Great Falls. First, they do not have easy jobs. Students at the school face the usual academic challenges young people face today, plus the challenge of not being able to hear or see as well as other children. Second, teachers at the school should not be earning far less money that their colleagues in the public schools in Great Falls, or in comparable schools elsewhere. Third, MSDB personnel are among the lowest-paid state of Montana workers. / Great Falls Tribune

FLORIDA DEAF AND BLIND SCHOOL TAKES STAND FOR ANTI-BULLYING (VIDEO)

MOTHERS OF DEAF CHILDREN WANT INSURANCE COMPANIES TO PAY FOR HEARING AIDS
A handful of mothers with deaf children urged legislators Tuesday to require health insurance companies to provide hearing aids. The women estimated there are fewer than 400 children needing the devices which can run as much as $6,000 for a pair every five years. Medicaid, the state’s insurance for the poor, already provides them, but most private insurance companies don’t. The mothers, who formed LetGeorgiaHear.org, argue that spending $40,000 on hearing aids during a child’s youth avoids tenfold costs for special education. / The Florida Times Union

COUCHSURFING ALUMNA WINS ROUND-THE-WORLD TRIP
What if I told you that you could win a round-the-world trip by sitting on a couch? Jenny Lu ’12 did exactly this when she recently won a chance to travel the world through couchsurfing.org’s “Get Inspired” video contest. Couchsurfing is a travel community that allows people to create accounts and connect with other people around the world. Instead of paying for hotels, travelers can stay for free with locals who are registered on the website. Lu, who has a hearing disability, always dreamed of meeting fellow deaf people who live in other places around the world. She made this dream a reality when she won couchsurfing.org’s video contest, which required only that contestants create an inspiring video. / Wellesley News

FILMMAKER CAPTURES THE 3/11 STRESS OF TOHOKU'S DEAF
Nobuko Kikuchi, 72, couldn’t hear the emergency sirens that followed the 9.0-magnitude earthquake that struck on March 11, 2011. Nor could she hear the public announcement urging people to evacuate to higher ground as a massive tsunami approached the coast of northeastern Japan. Kikuchi is deaf. She owes her life to a neighbor who came to alert her. Such horrific experiences of the Great East Japan Earthquake fill “3.11 Without Sound — There Were Deaf People in the Disaster Area, Too,” a 23-minute documentary recently released by deaf filmmaker Ayako Imamura. / The Japan Times

CHINESE GANGS 'ABDUCTED DEAF-MUTE STUDENTS AND FORCED THEM TO COMMIT ROBBERIES'
A nation-wide police operation has resulted in the arrests of 360 suspects accused of abducting dozens of deaf-mute students and forcing them to commit robberies, mainly burglaries, the Beijing News reported. The operation, ordered by the Ministry of Public Security, rooted out 61 gangs engaged in abduction from 21 provinces across China, and rescued 70 deaf-mute people. The arrested suspects were responsible for 345 crimes. Among the arrested was Yang Erdu, China’s most-wanted criminal, who master minded a series of abduction crimes. / South China Morning Post

DEAF PASTRY CHEF BUILDS SUCCESSFUL BUSINESS
On a recent winter day before dawn, a bakery hidden in an alley in New Taipei City was already buzzing with activity. Cheng Yi-chia, the young pastry chef, cannot hear the low hum of the large oven or the clamor of utensils and bowls because he has been deaf since he was very young. However, this allows him to focus fully on his baking. Cheng has worked hard for his success. Not yet 30, Cheng owns a bakery and a cafe, which offers coffee and fresh pastries. / Taipei Times

TAOISEACH CAN'T CONFIRM SURGERY FOR DEAF BOY
The Taoiseach [Irish Prime Minister] said he was unable to say with certainty that a deaf boy will be given life-changing surgery which would allow him some form of hearing. However, Enda Kenny said there were “positive” developments that would put in place a system for double bilateral cochlear implants in Irish hospitals by 2014. He was answering questions about the case of Liam Cunneen-McCormack, 6, who was told he had to go to Britain for the operation — despite a donor offering to pay for it here — because of funding issues between Beaumont Hospital in Dublin and the HSE. / Irish Examiner

ROYSTON GRADUATE VOLUNTEERS AT DEAF PROJECT IN PHILIPPINES
A graduate from Royston is encouraging young people to take up volunteering opportunities overseas after spending time working with a deaf community in the Philippines. James Jennings, 25, spent three months in the country as part of a government-funded development program, the International Citizen Service. He worked on a project run by Voluntary Services Overseas, which looks at poverty in the deaf community of Cebu, and tackles issues such as child sex abuse and unequal rights. / Royston Crow

ORCHESTRA HELPS DEAF 'FEEL' ITS MUSIC
The National Orchestra of Wales has come up with a way to make music more inclusive: by opening it up to the deaf community. Freelance musician Andy Pidcock worked with the Orchestra to come up with a "sound box." Through vibrations, it transmits music to deaf people who can put their hands on it or even lie on top of it. Pidcock talks about it with Weekends on All Things Considered host Jacki Lyden. And, through an interpreter, Kate Galloway describes what it is like to feel music in this way. / NPR

He says Kevin was robbed of $850 and pushed off a third floor level of the hotel to the concrete below. He calls the attack a case of attempted murder. / National Post

CSUN SORORITY CATERS TO DEAF COMMUNITY
A small mutt with scruffy grey fur enters the room. She is sitting, unnoticeable, inside a crocheted Dakine backpack littered with pink, white and teal colors. The backpack is hooked to the back of 23-year-old child and adolescent development major Danielle Sprague. This dog, a mix of chihuahua and maltese poodle, is named Hazel and belongs to Sprague, president of Alpha Sigma Theta. Hazel is an honorary member of the sorority that, in the words of Vice President Holly Kerker, 23, an English major, caters to the deaf community. It provides deaf women a place that encourages leadership, socialization and overcoming challenges. / Daily Sundial

NEED FOR CULTURALLY SENSITIVE TREATMENT FOR DEAF PATIENTS WITH PSYCHIATRIC DISORDERS
Members of the Deaf community who suffer from mental health problems need culturally sensitive treatment to avoid misdiagnosis and inappropriate treatment, according to a report in the March Journal of Psychiatric Practice. "Deaf individuals comprise a cultural and linguistic minority group within the United States, and culturally and linguistically appropriate psychiatric treatment must reflect these differences," said co-author Sarah A. Landsberger. With the goal of providing guidance for hearing psychiatrists, the authors review the limited research literature on mental health care for deaf patients. / Eurekalert

LANGUAGE DEVELOPMENT OF DEAF CHILDREN ACCELERATED BY SENSITIVE PARENTING
Deaf children with cochlear implants (CI) develop language faster when their mothers are sensitive while interacting with them, say researchers at the University of Miami announced on March 8, 2013. The study published in the “Journal of Pediatrics” found that the language skills of the children almost caught up to that of their hearing peers. The study is one of the largest national studies about how parenting impacts very young deaf children with cochlear implants. / Examiner.com

INTERPRETER FOR THE DEAF BILL

CSUN'S PHONE APP FOR DEAF WINS INTERNATIONAL SOFTWARE COMPETITION
A team of Cal State Northridge computer hotshots licked top universities throughout the region at a software competition last weekend by designing a winning phone app alert system for the deaf. The CSUN computer science students clinched the "SS12: Code for a Cause" contest in San Diego, thumping teams from USC and UCLA. With only two weeks to design their software, the team of five students concocted an Android application that can interpret audio disturbances such as sirens, smoke alarms, car horns or even crying children, then translate them into flashing lights, vibrations and texts to those who could not otherwise hear them. The free app is now available at Google Play. / LA Daily News

DEAF ENTERTAINER TEACHES STUDENTS WITH COMEDY ACT
Decades ago, C.J. Jones walked into a St. Louis, Mo., public school and was told he was not allowed to sign. The Temecula Valley High School students that the deaf entertainer performed for Tuesday live in an entirely new and accepting world. “It’s amazing to see the change,” Jones said through an interpreter. “It makes it a lot easier for deaf kids to feel like, ‘Oh, I’m not alone. I’m not strange. I’m not different because I’m deaf and everybody’s hearing.’ " / San Diego Union-Tribune

ACTOR WANTS HOLLYWOOD TO SEE HIM AS MORE THAN 'THAT DEAF GUY'
Russell Harvard remembers the moment he decided to become an actor. It happened when he was a kid growing up in Austin, Texas. "My cousin was in this play. It was something new they'd created that was based on 'The Wizard of Oz,'" said Harvard, 31. "I didn't know what to expect." Harvard was amazed. "He was this really evil character. It took me completely by surprise," Harvard recalled. "My cousin was so nice and mild-mannered and here he was playing this villain.
