Finally... It's subtitles now. Took me long hours to type every script films. Pretty Interesting to learn use subtitles. (chuckles) Anyway...
AGBELL need stop whine!



AG Bell Speaks Up on Pepsi Super Bowl Commercial

"AG Bell’s Board President, Karen Youdelman, and Executive Director, Alexander T. Graham, spoke up about Pepsi’s upcoming Super Bowl commercial featuring a deaf storyline (http://www.pepsi.com/bobshouse/). In a letter written to PepsiCo corporate executives, Youdelman and Graham stated, “Although we appreciate Pepsi’s efforts to encourage new promotional ideas from your rank-and-file employees and your willingness to celebrate diversity, we would be remiss if we did not call your attention to the fact that…your advertisement perpetuates a common myth that all people who are deaf can only communicate using sign language.”

Youdelman and Graham then called upon PepsiCo to continue “…to educate the public…and promote appreciation for those individuals that go above and beyond to overcome the absence of something many of us take for granted - the miracle of sound.”

You may go ahead contact Pepsi, http://www.pepsiusa.com/help/help.php?or=
And Thank them for their effort to expose ASL. *shake applause hands* Yes do it!



I cannot believable what a...heck wrong with AGBELL??
Is AG Bell Afraid of Something?
My answer: YES!!!! AGBELL doesn't want lose their business!

AGBELL cannot accept with Pepsi Company which they already release promptly Deaf commercial. That's too bad! Deaf Community really happy hearing all about Pepsi company sponsor for Deaf. I'm very happy and proud Pepsi Company willing do anything for Deaf Commercial TV Show of Pepsi. I do applause them! Great way to go!


AGBELL is expecting everyone must learn adapt teaching oral methods and cochlear implant will help improve better future community relationship. Where is that coming from information?? Honestly it's false information.
I've seen several few CI'ers who were not happy their feelings emotions and expression because of Parent were pressuring. I hope, One day, Everyone will wake up and understand open mind best interest for Deaf Child needs meet better education in Deaf School than Oral Methods close narrow minds focus "Mouth and Ears". I've been there experience about my past childhood and through patience make my parent happy. I don't!

Don't let AGBELL control you or everyone! Let's stand up and be strong best for ASL!

Great vlog and I agree... what the members of AGBELL did was ridiculous. I was pretty appalled to read of the news yesterday.

Of all of things to complain about, they had to pick the upcoming Pepsi commercial!

Geez. It's so hard to please everybody.

Great vlog Terri!

*hands wave*

Nice vlog even though it's little dark but that is all right.

Even though AGBell sent the letters to Pepsi, it is too late for them because Pepsi and the deaf community already worked hard on it for a year. It was already set up and ready for tomorrow. So tough luck to AGBell.

Most deaf people including me already sent our thank you and congratulations letters to Pepsi Co. for Bob's House commercial being shown on TV tomorrow.

Misha :D

I'm the kind of guy who loves to try different things. Currently I am fabricating my own photovoltaic panels. I am doing it all by myself without the aid of my staff. I'm utilizing the internet as the only way to acheive that. I saw a really amazing website which explains how to build solar panels and so on. The internet site explains all the steps involved in diy solar panel construction.

I'm not sure bout how precise the data given there iz. If some guys over here who had experience with these works can have a peak and give your feedback in the site it would be awesome and I'd really value it, because I truly take an interest in [URL=http://solar-panel-construction.com]solar panel construction[/URL].

Thanks for reading this. U guys rock.
