The renowned city planner. Mike what in one thousand nine hundred twenty. Helen would also create the amazingly incredible american civil liberties union. The aclu and that next year the american federation for the blind was founded as well. I just wanted to stop here in. Just say i don't know how i didn't know this high had no idea than helen. Keller was one of the individuals who helped to found the aclu. I mean that's such an incredible organization even today. Just really incredible stuff. The american federation for the blind was founded that next year. And mrs where. Helen would focus for support creating campaigns for awareness and to raise financial support for those living with blindness. It was during this time that helen's popularity began to weaken due to her associations with the less than popular socialism with this didn't stop her momentum entirely in nineteen forty six. Helen was named the counselor of international relations for the american foundation of overseas blind and traveled all over the world sharing her story a decade later. Helen would begin a groundbreaking trek across asia lecturing and educating on blindness. And how to better support special needs individuals in society. It should be noted that helena was seventy five one. She began her trip in nineteen sixty five. Helen would be appointed to the women's hall of fame along with several other distinguish awards including the presidential medal of freedom as well as the theodore. Roosevelt distinguished service medal after many years. Lecturing and traveling. Helen would settle down in her home in connecticut. After suffering health issues for a number of years. Helen keller passed away in her sleep on june. First nineteen sixty eight at the age of eighty seven now first of all. I had no idea that she passed away in sixty eight. That just doesn't seem as far off. In the past. As i thought it was when i think about helen. Keller but this story to me is one of the most incredible amazing stories. Because whenever i tell these stories usually individuals are dealing with societal or cultural obstacles which either delay or hinder them. But having to of your physical senses unusable in continuing on to live such an extraordinary life mean just writing books going to college like really being exemplary individual pursuing all of your interests all of your passions not even allowing your circumstances to dictate how you move forward. I mean i love. This story also loved it because it was a very real depiction of someone who's angry at life in the beginning of her life where she was throwing all these tantrums and she was always very angry and disrespectful to her family and her parents. I mean number one. She was a child who didn't even have the ability to absorb the education that she really needed at that point in her life. Because it just wasn't there and number two. She was blind and death. She couldn't communicate. She lived in a world she absolutely could not understand just as a child not even somebody who was blind and deaf to look at that and then look at how far she came from that point. I mean it's so impressive. It is so encouraging for me personally. It's just so inspiring that she didn't allow her rage to consume her. Because nobody would have blamed her for that but she didn't. She allowed it to fuel her and take her to heights. That people with all of their senses couldn't reach just pure determination and grit and on top of all of this. She also dedicated her life to fighting for those with special needs along with social activist causes. Like how does she even have the ban with like.

"Hey there be one. My name is ari in welcome to made of metal a motivational podcast. Where we tell stories about regular people overcoming insurmountable. Thank you so much for joining me for another wonderful episode of made of metal. I hope everyone enjoyed last week's episode of exploring the duality of man. And i wanted to continue on that theme especially in terms of understanding that the decisions we make are what defines us outside of anything else so this week we'll be covering an individual who experienced a personal injury due to illness that most would have considered catastrophic in life ending especially during a time when there was little to no resources available to cope with that loss. This wasn't a loss of a person but of their own individual senses in thus a good chunk of their personal independence having to navigate a world. That just wasn't equipped for their needs plus having to forge a completely new path toward understanding how to work with people such as themselves. This individual also went on to fight for several noble causes all geared toward establishing basic freedoms and rights for the unseen in society. And may were able to do this as they were. Well acquainted with the marginalization of their own group. I truly love stories like these for their ability to depict this strength and resilience that lives within us all. In spite of whatever circumstances life throws at us plus as you all know. I am such a huge fan of stories involving strong women. Truly lights my fire so this week. We'll be covering the strong the sensible the steadfast helen keller helen keller was born on june twenty-seventh eighteen eighty in alabama the eldest of two daughters. Helen's parents arthur.

"And at that point basically if you were blind and he wanted to lead a lot of stuff you had to know all these different systems because so many books would only be printed in one system. Not every system So you sort of. If you wanted to read the book you had to beat the system. It was ridden in and they're all a little bit different from bustling type is is Emboss letters if you've ever had an engraved invitation so the old fashioned engraving It's the same basic concept. You sort trust the paper on a metal plate that pushes the letters up It is very slow to beat Anytime hand In line type. Two people who are who are very skilled braille leaders. They give us such a look. It's so slow. It's so awkward. It's so tactile nearly complicated Under the fingers and yet for most of the nineteenth century In the us that was the system it was taught in schools The system that that was used perkins's called boston. My type was developed by zemo mobile. Hell and steven spielberg approaching engineer at the school. In the early years any more beautiful than the french version and there are days that isn't saying much and then people got really innovative and so they were trying all sorts of different systems for bail. You notice in the dots system which is much more easily discernible But there were a these three versions actively floating around in regular use. Oh english braille. Which is the the system eventually stuck with American braille which was developed by a teacher at perkins and uses the few stocks for the most common letters so theoretically it would be faster. Meet and right especially right. New york point which has a different system So so the bail that we settled on is two columns of three dots Vertically and and you do you use different combinations of those dots to indicate different letters or combinations of letters And then your point is two rows of dots and you might have up to six outs in a row. So that you you sort of each letter by letter. You're trying to figure out what's going on and it's not a standard shape necessarily and then there's a whole other complication things that people don't know about braille but if you haven't alabama quarter You can sort of begin to look at this There's a form called contracted braille so uncontracted braille use spell out every letter with its own tail cell so aig a is a selby's celsius cell with contracted braille. You can have one cell that stands in for multiple letters. So there's a cell troy end or the or i n g My favorite is that. If you just have a k by itself for the spacing inner side it stands for knowledge so they sort of went through and figured out words that people were going to use all the time and may contractions for those And so there's there's a two hundred sixty. I think contracts i might have that number wrong but hundreds and then there were other systems. That were were floating around. There's moon type which is my favorite of the systems which is sort of symbols roughly based on the alphabet shapes but not quite and their simplified and they're a little easier to read and that one has been very popular historically with people who become visually impaired as adults because they have thirty familiar with the shapes at that point. And it's a little easier to to make the transition but there's been a lot of conversation in the blindness community about making money or tactile tiles. They have been pristine for very long time to get tactile Bills in currency system some countries making a little easier. Some countries helps at a very distinct shapes for their coins. It's much easier to figure out what you're working with The us is not quite as specifically thinking about that piece. Historically there are many ministers about helen and her exceptional that she learned as a blind and deaf person but one thing that did cause a lot of people to question whether or not she was. Really blind really. Death is her time when she was a pilot in the story behind. That is fascinating. I a- susanna. If she was share that with us yes so the she was a pilot in the sense that the pilot that was flying plane made accommodations for her as they hopefully would any untrained pilot. That was flying with them The pilots sat next to helen and communicated instructions to her via polly who was serving her interpreter and the whole story was published in a nineteen forty-six newspaper article entitled wonderful helen. Keller fly flies a plane Which was digitized by the helen keller archive at the american foundation for the blind. And it explains how how. Helen sat next to the pilot and he he was actually flying the plane but she was sort of acting as a co-pilot looking at the article. It says that the plane crew were amazed at her sensitive touch on the controls the shaking or vibration and that she just sat and flew the plane calmly and steadily and that Her her response was it was wonderful to feel the delicate movement of the aircraft through the controls. Wow nurse of steel as a pilot impressive but also impressive is that she wrote books. She was an author and that again caused people to question her. But that did stop helen. She was determined and not only determine she was accepts. You know and successful as an author. Susanna tells us all about that. She was a prolific writer. She wrote a number of books and many many articles for magazines and other publications. Some of her best known books are obviously the story of my life. There was a second sort of volume of that. Midstream which is her biography of her adult life She wrote the world. I live in my religion and optimism. And she actually wrote.

"You Helen Keller, supporting the end of the deep Helen Keller traveling the world raising awareness for people with disabilities, testifying before Congress to advocate for blind people that Helen Geller Yes, Michael Lee reporting on this, By the way, Yes, that Helen Keller, but you know, she's still just another privileged white person. And yet another example of history, telling the story of privileged white Americans. Okay, Here's Here's how you know how stupid this is. I don't care what color you are. We came from How much money you have. Ask yourself this. Would you rather be born Helen Keller. Death in blind. What would you rather be where you are right now. That's what this whole white privilege is such nonsense. What it really is is it took the idea that we can't just let people who are not racist feel like they're not racist. So we've got to figure out a way to say it's not the past that may have influenced People's lives. It's the fact that you're benefiting from the past because of your skin color. Therefore your part of the problem. Therefore you have to do something to make up for things that you had nothing to do with or you're racist to make you feel guilty to make you try to go down this ridiculous path of social justice so called And critical race theory. Where it doesn't even matter what truth is, because there is no objective truth. It's just if you experience and feel it, then it's true for you postmodernism nonsense, and therefore we can brainwash these younger people into feeling really guilty about doing nothing except the fact that their skin color is lighter than yours, and then we can make them do whatever we want them to do, which is what they're doing now. So you could be born the son of two black parents who are extremely wealthy and rich and well off because their doctor and a lawyer or you could be born, a poor white kidnap, elation mountains and somehow, that poor white kid in the Appalachian Mountains is still more privileged..

"And then Pat McDonough will take you through the rest of the year. So next week will be a lot of whatever the news of the day is, as well as looking back it probably the worst year certainly in my lifetime. But the worst here definitely the 21st century, maybe last 50 years, so we shall Look back and fund this as they say at 2020, number, 410 wcbm, 6 80 or 100 Wcbm 6 80 talking about all the insanity of the left. You want to talk about the insanity of the left Helen Keller. You would think that Helen Keller would not be Controversial Having died a long time ago, having been born blind and deaf, But you would be wrong because Again. We live in the woke Olympic times. We live in a time when victimhood is Valued and aspired to you think well victim right there. Helen Keller's Got it. But no No Helen Keller's biggest problem is that she's white, the headline in Time magazine co founding the CEO you fighting for labor rights and other Helen Keller accomplishments. Students don't learn in school. Okay. You're thinking Why is Helen Keller in the news? Well, apparently in this wasn't published till just the other day. So even Time magazine didn't seem to notice it while the world marked international Day of persons with disabilities. It was a day for everything. So where's the day for sanity? On December 3rd. The history of people with disabilities is still not fully taught in schools. Does it need to be taught in schools? Does it. The general category of persons with disabilities. Does that need to be taught in schools? My mother lost her right leg when I was nine years old. And I don't think that she certainly didn't sit around and talk about it. You could have wild about it for the rest of her life if she wanted to. She didn't She got on with her life. She lived and did everything she possibly could have come home from school and is above the knee. So she always walked with crutches and should be stand on top of a chair. Wiping the ceiling down in the kitchen. Didn't occur to me to ask. What the hell did you get on the ceiling in the kitchen? But yeah, she's just that's how she she lived. That's how she did it. She could have wallowed in self pity for the rest of for years, but she didn't She fought through it all for the rest of her years. In the U. S. If American school Children learn about any person with disabilities, they learn that Franklin Delano Roosevelt once had polio and use the wheelchair in office, and they learn about death blind activist Helen Keller. Okay. Well, is that It. Shouldn't they learn about people who did things? Those people did things that amazing things that they need to learn about my mom. My mom would would have said no. But then you read down. And you see what the real point is. And again. This is progressivism it work. Halfway through the peace, however, to some black disability rights activists like Anita Cameron Helen Keller is not radical at all. Quote just another despite disabilities, privileged white person and quote and yet another example of history, telling the story of privileged white Americans. Yeah. Helen came when you think of somebody who had it really good. You think of Helen Keller? Don't you? Isn't that the way it is? Then how you spend your time Wake up in a cold sweat. 3 30 in the morning going down. Helen Keller had it so good. What With being blind and deaf. So sick of hearing about how Helen Keller had it rough. She had nothing. I I have to. I don't know. See and hear things. Helen Keller had it really easy. This really where we're seeking to is a society. Yes, it is now. Helen Keller was certainly not perfect. It's you know, the progressive left the beginning of the 20th century through about World War two. The Nazis kind of Took progressivism too far. And American progressives had to recede until about 25 years ago is weird. You know, nobody would go. We're the new We're the new clan. We don't believe in racism anymore. Reclaiming the name and we're really just about everybody getting along. Nobody would do that. Nobody would do that. Because the name Ku Klux Klan has ah, horrible stain on it. But for some reason, progressivism doesn't have that horrible state. They've managed to escape the horrible stain they absolutely deserved. Because they embraced eugenics, which is the elitist liberal idea that they should be able to choose who's worthy of life and who is not and how others should live their lives. It's always Thies, Northeastern. Liberal elitists, not necessarily intelligent but educated there a lot of people educated beyond their intelligence. Dr Jill Biden, for example. But they all believe that they were better and that the unworthy these should likely be sterilized should be stopped should be prevented from reproducing because that was the problem in society was that these undesirables were reproducing. They're dumb. Some people will have dumb kids. We should sterilize them and you look back at the forced sterilization actions taken by progressive government back in that time, and that was the impetus for it. Also, they didn't like Black people very much that in like brown people very much, although there were black and brown members of the progressive movement into eugenics. Because it was really just about class. Was ultimately if you aren't like us, kind of like Democrats now progress If you aren't like us, you aren't worthy of freedom of choice of liberty of living your life. We will decide for you. And if we need you to be unworthy of any of those things, so be it. You just don't know what you're talking about. They used race to couch a lot of it, but there were a lot of black progressives. To sit there and say, Well, Helen Keller she suffered She she had. Yeah, she had it rough, but she had her white privilege to fall back on. Yeah, I don't I don't think Helen would agree with that. I don't think most people who know the story of Helen Keller would agree with that. But again, we're living in the walk Olympics and it's a constant medal ceremony. Let's go back to the phones for one out of the C B m 60 8100 wcbm 6 80 Alex in Baltimore. Thanks for holding welcome back. Thanks for taking my call. Yeah, telling Telegram.

She's going to be great cuz my sister was incredible and so that like helps me paid my way in high school, but then when I got to college it was like yeah, my sister was great, but there are sixty thousand people here not eight hundred people here. And so people some people knew she was she was kind of a big deal. She was pretty cool, but I really had this opportunity to make my own path and so that started with getting involved in my flow. And then I was able to become a counselor and then a chair for my flow. And so I am big on continuity in my organizations. So I like to get in and stick with it. So that's my advice. If you find something and you love it stay in it. Like there's nothing against there's nothing wrong with being a junior and a flow. I did it and I turned out just fine or being a fifth year in a freshman orientation program. Whatever is going to make you happy is where you should be and I don't think anyone should be able to tell you otherwise and so maybe that way you're going to be in the ballroom dance club my one of my second coach here was the president of the ballroom dance club and she loved it me not a great dancer would not side there, but I think it's just about using The experiences that you get to have in college to find what really sets your heart on fire and what really makes you passionate and so like for me that's people and that's why I have stayed in these people centered organizations of like helping people develop a grow so that would be my advice is just finding your Niche and like finding what you love and not being afraid to stay there. Well, that is awesome. Find your Niche find your passions listen to your heart. So with that I actually have a quote for us to end the episode on and this one's by Helen Keller and it's actually very timely with some of the things they were saying so thanks for that. This is the quote is when one door of happiness closes another opens, but we often look so long at the closed-door that we do not see the door that's opened for us. And so I think you talked a lot about that of we were looking at doors of what we couldn't have but then once we realized and she could look down the other paths and saw other people doing it that really showed the light right..

This is wizards whose biography podcast. The podcast helps you learn the real truth about successful personalities subscribe now to get access to future episodes. The biography of Helen Keller. Helen Keller was born in eighteen eighty in Alabama to Arthur Henry Keller and Catherine Everett Keller. Her father was a newspaper editor and a captain in the confederate army. Her mother was the daughter of a general in the confederate army. Helen Keller had two siblings and two half siblings from her father's earlier marriage contrary to most cases Helen was not born blind and deaf she was healthy when she was born. But when she was nineteen months, old Helen Keller contracted a mysterious illness which left her death and blind it was described by. As an acute congestion of the brain and stomach reports suggested that the disease could have been meningitis or scarlet fever. This illness left Helen completely devastated. She had no idea of what was going on around her as nobody knew how to communicate with her with age Helen learned a few signs the Turk convey her needs to her family. When she was seven years old, she could even identify people using the vibration from their footsteps. The unruly kid. Her parents showed extra care for her because of her disability. Since he was a kid, she used this to her advantage and dot whatever she wanted by throwing temper tantrums she dominated the entire household and terrorize the servants. But her parents did not do anything against it because they did not know how to communicate with her. So they gave into her tantrums instead of teaching her to behave properly. Inability to form sentences. Sentences are the basic building blocks of languages but sentences themselves are made up of different words like nouns, verbs, prepositions, etc. so we can say that learning a language without learning, it's words as impossible. However. Helen did not know about the existence of words. So she did not know that everything around her name and she can refer to an object using its name. For example, she can touch table and know that it is there but she didn't know the table can be called a table. Since. She did not know the existence of words she couldn't form sentences either so she couldn't form proper thoughts insider brain since most of our thoughts are in the form of sentences, this could have intern frustrated or in mater unruly and wild. One Book that changed everything. When she was six years old, her mother was reading American notes written by Charles Dickens. It contained his findings during his six month trip to North America in Charles Dickens had written about a deaf blind girl called Laura Bridgman born fifty years before Helen Keller like Helen. She had also lost her ability to see and hear when she was two years old Charles Dickens mentioned that she was successfully. Educated in the English language reading this Helen's mother became hopeful. She immediately sent Helen and her father to visit an ear nose and throat specialist.

She ran around the house breaking things eating from others, plates and was astonished none of Helen's family members did anything to stop her behavior or teacher to behave properly and noticed that her family's sympathy only encouraged Helen to continue being unruly. She understood that she must discipline Helen without using force. And felt that the first step to teaching Helen was to teach her how to behave properly. So with the permission of Helen's family and to custody of Helen for two weeks during these two weeks and was the only person Helen could depend on therefore helen couldn't run to her parents went and tried discipline her.

Helen's parents wanted to communicate with her but they couldn't figure out how she couldn't learn to speak because she couldn't hear people talk. She had a hard time expressing what she needed and she'd have temper tantrums out of frustration. That's where any Sullivan comes in. Switzer rushing to the other side of the top of your mouth and brush all the way to the molars in the back. Helen's parents knew she needed help. So they hired Anne Sullivan to be her teacher. Anne did her best to teach Helen some words by spelling them. Into the palm of Helen's hand she gave Helen a doll and traced the letters D. O. L. l. The WORD DOLL INTO. Helen's Paul but Helen didn't quite seem to understand Switzer rushing to the bottom of your mouth pressure front teeth. One day and he got an idea using a water pump. She held Helen's hand under the water and spelled W. a. t. e. r. the word water over and over and over again. Finally Helen got it. Everything had a name. Helen became obsessed with learning and worked. Hard to learn a ton of words. Ellen learned to read using special language called Braille. She learned to write and to learn to speak switcher rushing to the other side of the bottom of your mouth and get your tongue brush to how to college. She published books and she started her own foundation to help other people with disabilities. Helen traveled to thirty.

The impact of hearing loss

Second Opinion

The impact of hearing loss

"Rudy is a seventy two year old retired electrocution he and his wife live alone in a small house over the past couple of years Rudy has become more isolated. He no longer sees his friends goes to the movies or watches TV. In fact, he met many of the diagnostic criteria of depression. This is Dr Michael Wilks with a second opinion in the exam room was I turned to reach for my stethoscope on the nearby counter. I kept talking to Rudi I realized though he couldn't hear me when I wasn't facing him. I turned back in asteroid if he'd noticed any trouble with his hearing reluctantly, he said he had but had ignored the problem because it made him feel old and he didn't want to wear a hearing aid. I tried to suggest that he might seem older without hearing eight people might think he was ignoring them or not paying attention. It was Helen Keller who was blind and deaf. Who once said that blindness separates people from things deftness separates people from people for people over the age of sixty forty percent of a hearing loss that affects the quality of their life. Hearing loss has a more profound effect on the quality of life, then diabetes, heart disease or thrice hearing aids can be life, saving not only extending the length of life. But also the quality of life. A recent study in JAMA showed that if people have an uncorrected hearing loss. There is a forty percent higher risk of depression. Also for people with a hearing loss healthcare costs or forty six percent higher. They have forty percent more hospitals ations, and they stay on average two days longer compared to those without a hearing loss. Unfortunately, hearing aids are will outside the reach of many Americans most people. Wait seven to ten years before they get evaluated for a hearing aid. And only thirty percent of people who could benefit from a hearing aid will ever get one a hearing aid cost between two thousand and four thousand dollars per year. And they're not covered by Medicare or many private insurances. Now, you might wonder why Medicare the insurance for older Americans wouldn't cover hearing aids will Medicare's forbidden from covering hearing aids. Because in one thousand nine hundred sixty five legislators considered hearing loss normal part of aging, and according to the thinking at the time, why would an insurance intended for diseases cover something that was normal. Well, the sales of hearing aids which require prescriptions have been enormously profitable for manufacturers. But as with other disruptive technologies the world is changing fast over the. The counter hearing aids are now available at a fraction of the cost and many are linked to smartphones. That also offer transcription and other services. It also seems that everyone these days has earphone sticking out of their ears and facing cool. So perhaps the stigma is also changing well Rudy ended up getting one hearing aid. That's all he could afford. According to both Rudy and his wife his life has changed radically for the better. He's back to socializing watching TV at normal volumes and going to the movies as for me. I am now far more careful to ask everyone. Whether they've had any trouble with hearing. This is Dr Michael Wilks with a second opinion this season unless notes from KCRW how does it feel to be like a girl plane in instrument of this? Well, how's it feel to be a man asking simple questions? I mean what? Had I said, no to this invitation from John Fahey, I would have for the rest of my life wondered what I had missed.
