ASL interpreters now mandatory for U.S. COVID briefings

As Canadians keep up with daily briefings on COVID-19, sign language interpreters have become an essential part of keeping people informed. The U.S. is making it mandatory for sign language and captioning services for all COVID-19 briefings.

#SignLanguage #HearingHealth #HearingCare

People who are deaf or hard of hearing are often left in the dark when it comes to important news briefings. Sometimes we’re given information hours or days after the hearing population gets it. Access to vital information is important for everyone.

Why sign language should be an official language

An estimated 1% of the total population is born Deaf, and most likely, learns and speaks a signed language. But with more than 200 versions of sign language worldwide, there is no one universal sign language.

#SignLanguage #HearingHealth #LifeIsOn

In some countries, activists are trying to improve life for people who are deaf and hard of hearing by recognizing an official sign language.

How my Hearing Aids Have Helped my Tinnitus

Soon after, 49-year-old Trond Simonsen learned he has tinnitus, a persistent ringing sound in his ear. The constant sound is exhausting, makes it difficult to sleep, and prevents you from hearing everyday sounds.

Tools to help you hear well and highlight the sounds you want to focus on. Simonsen realized that wearing hearing aids could help his tinnitus.

Lest we forget 🇨🇦
Thank you to our country’s active and fallen service men and woman.

The memorial that sits prominently on Court House Ave in Downtown Brockville was unveiled in 1924 in memory of those citizens of Brockville who died in the First World War. In the years since, the dates of the Second World War and the Korean War have been added.

The statue on top features a bronze figure of an advancing Canadian soldier fully equipped for battle. It is believed that it was the actions of Brockville’s Thain MacDowell at the Battle of Vimy Ridge that inspired the pose of this otherwise generic soldier.

Separated from his battalion, MacDowell, with the assistance of two runners, captured two enemy machine guns, two officers and over fifty men by convincing them that he commanded a much larger force. His action enabled his battalion to capture its objective, Hill 145. MacDowell was awarded the Victoria Cross for these actions; the only soldier to have received this honour at Vimy Ridge to have survived the War.

After the war MacDowell suffered severely from “war neurasthenia” or shell-shock, today known better as post-traumatic stress disorder. He died in 1960 and was buried in Oakland cemetery in Brockville.

MacDowell’s is just one of many stories of bravery and sacrifice represented by the War Memorial.

Learn more about MacDowell and other Brockville wartime history by visiting the Brockville Museum’s “People of Brockville” exhibit, checking out our on-line virtual exhibit “Remembering Women in War” (accessible from our website), or viewing the Brockville Rifles Regimental Museum display in our lobby (until November 19).

Does COVID-19 cause hearing loss?

COVID-19, or Coronavirus, affects people in numerous ways. This newly identified virus that affects the respiratory system seems to come with many side effects, some that are very serious and some that last longer than others.

One recently published article in the American Journal of Otolaryngology, titled “Audiological profile of asymptomatic COVID-19 PCR-positive cases,” has concluded that COVID-19 could have an effect on inner ear function but state that more research is needed.
