I applaud the purpose and mission to ensure every deaf infant have the right to language development through the use of American Sign Language. I'd be more than happy to donate some money, but I am on a tight budget. However, I can offer you guys a suggestion that can help DBC earn an extra few dollars with their vlogs for P.R. work and non-profit purposes. Use Revver.com! They will pay you for hosting your vlogs with their ad revenue!

That was a powerful message. I strongly suggest that this video include voice interpreted so that more people could hear the message! I am impressed with Amy's Greatest Irony with voice interpreted. It is spreading fast, even faster than we expect!

I can't see your Vlog the top what is happening.

I see that you are having problems viewing the first vlog but the second vlog is the same as the first one so nothing is being missed.

The second vlog is fine but the first vlog won't run.

I have hard time viewing the vlog with quicktime that oftend tends to have some problems. I don't like quicktime.

DBC said...

Some people like quicktime since the quality is much clearer and it works in their computer. That's why it is best to provide options where viewers can make a choice that is best for them.

There has nothing problem with YouTube that has been working in the computer. please you use youtube that allows me to view your vlog.

Quicktime doesn't show up it picture.

The quicktime videos weren't encoded properly for the web. I couldn't view these videos neither. I checked other quicktime videos on other sites to make sure and they worked fine so the problem is limited to DBC quicktime videos.

at least, I could view the youTube videos which I presume are the same.

DBC said...

I see that you, Jared, couldn't even get to view it as well. I just went over the system and realized that it was not functioning right.

I had followed exactly the same formula what Tayler had given me earlier since it was successful in other blog. I double-checked the code and it was exactly the same. I even re-did the whole code and still got same results. I am scratching my head now! Help!

I have removed all of the videoserver video clips to eliminate confusion. I am just glad that you all are still able to view clearly in YouTube.

As a pragamist, after I looked at many different webs that are related to that issue of baby signs already have research for Twenty years but none of any deaf baby signs research for Twenty years accoding to Amy Cohen Enform's statements! In fact DBC does not have any materials from research on deaf baby signs that supports DBC's standing. Unfortunately, DBC has very very long way to go and will have serious problem with hard questions of where is the evidence from the research on Deaf baby signs compare to Hearing baby signs that already research for twenty years!!!
Tell me where is the evidence from Deaf baby signs research for twenty years? AVT already see the plenty of evidences of baby signs based on research, but I point out AVT knows the fact and easily exploit DBC's big weakness on lack of Deaf baby signs research. DBC is formed that is based on an overreaction emotionally, I can understand what concept of DBC is all about but none of any research on deaf baby signs to support DBC or your arguements instead of your expression in that matter of opinions on that issues! DBC needs a lot of evidences which is based on deaf baby signs research.

There is evidence in research in related areas like cognitive science which show that even hearing babies use visual clues to learn spoken language. Deaf babies are human beings, therefore all the research about the general nature of human cognition applies to deaf babies.

It is absurd to postulate that a delay of 2, 3 or 4 years in exposure to language could be a beneficial thing.

It's bizarre that people think there is "no evidence" to show that babies need immediate exposure to language. All the evidence of science, including psychology, cognitive science and linguistics shows that humans are language-based beings who experience stages of cognitive development where language plays a central role.
