D.C. Metropolitan Area

Shakespeare Theatre Company: Sidney Harman Hall (610 F St. NW, Washington, DC 20004)
Open-Captioned: Tuesday, August 26, 2014 at 7:30pm
A celebration in the art of storytelling, the STC presents The Winter’s Tale, one of Shakespeare’s late romances.  Traveling through time, visiting the austere court at Sicilia and the bright sea shore of Bohemia, two generations transcend torment and obsession.  The Winter’s Tale is a compassionate and dazzling saga that tells the tale of King Leontes, who is overcome with jealousy when he believes his pregnant wife, Hermione, and his good friend, King Polixenes, are lovers.  Director Rebecca Taichman, whose Cymbeline was “brimming with both heart and good humor” (Washington City Paper) and whose Twelfth Night was “gorgeously romantic … as a brand new as a first kiss” (The Downtowner) returns to direct this classic piece through imagination and wit.
To reserve tickets, please visit http://www.shakespearetheatre.org/about/ffa/index.aspx, email STCBox@ShakespeareTheatre.org or call 202-638-3863 (TTY).

The Virginia Association of the Deafblind, Inc.- Haptics Workshop – Sept 27, 2014

August 26, 2014 in Community Events

 

Presenter: Ann 011iff (VADB Vice President who is Deafblind)
Date: Sept 27, 2014
Time: 10:00 – 11:30am
Location: Department for the Blind and Vision Impaired
Library and Resource Center Building, in the Conference Room
Address: 395 Azalea Ave., Richmond VA 23227

Cost: Free, but donations to VADB gladly accepted

Workshop Description: “Haptic Communication” is a form of nonverbal communication that
uses touch. In this workshop you will learn how to use Haptics to communicate information to a
Deafblind speaker or participant in a workshop by using special signs and ways of presenting
information. For example, you will learn some easy and efficient ways of explaining the set-up
of a room and where people are seated, creating your own “map” on the other person’s body or
arm. Then when someone in the room has a question, you can quickly convey to the Deafblind
person whom is talking by pointing to them on your map. You will also learn some ways to
provide real-time feedback about the emotions and interest-levels of people in the group, such as
when someone has burst out in laughter or is bored by the presentation (or may even be falling
asleep!) This workshop will be of benefit to Interpreters, Support Service Providers (SSPs) and
people interested in learning how to communicate information efficiently in ways other than
using traditional ASL signs. Signers and non-signers are welcome.

This workshop is being presented in conjunction with the annual VADB meeting which will be
held from 11:30am — 4:00pm, and non-members are welcome. Those who wish to stay for the
VADB Meeting will get Lunch provided courtesy of VDDHH. VADB is also seeking attendees
who are willing to serve as SSPs while they participate in the workshop and/or the meeting.

Rocky Run Middle School – CyberRams win grant to develop APP

July 17, 2014 in Community Events, Technology

 

Fairfax County Public Schools
Article Source

The Rocky Run Middle CyberRams team is one of four teams nationwide to win a STEM-in-Action grant from eCybermission, an educational outreach program of the U.S. Army focused on using science, technology, engineering, and math to solve a real problem in the community. 

Team members Ravi Dudhagra, Diego Gutierrez, Rishabh Krishnan, and Adityasai Koneru developed a computer program—Decibel mApp—to address the problem of noise-induced hearing loss that uses GPS technology to provide users with a map showing decibel levels the user experienced throughout the day. 

Team members worked with a local pediatric otolaryngologist, the U.S. Department of Energy, the National Institutes of Health, and computer programming engineers to develop the app.  The CyberRams won the grant, worth up to $5,000, because their plans were determined to provide the greatest possible impact in their community, and hopes to have the final product ready to go to market in a year.

This webinar will address those challenges by providing an overview of credit, identifying ways to build credit and discussing the ramifications of poor credit as it relates employment. In addition, the webinar will introduce valuable financial tools and resources — including Bank of America’s Better Money Habits program — that allow individuals to access a free credit report, explain how to use credit wisely and instill the importance of maintaining good credit. REGISTER TODAY!

In this webinar, we will:

  • Define credit, how to build credit, why good credit is important, the impact of poor credit
  • Discuss how to access a free credit report, identify and dispute any errors
  • Identify resources for those you serve
  • Identify challenges experienced by persons with disabilities

Identify new tools and resources to help an individual build their credit score

Please note: Real time captioning will be provided for this webinar. For other accommodation requests, questions about the webinar, or the registration process, please contact Keith Combs at kcombs@ndi-inc.org.
