  1. In 2019, the Kerala government had announced that it'll make the entire state, especially its tourist destinations, disabled-friendly by 2021. A program started by Kerala's tourism's Barrier-Free Tourism Project has now received global recognition as the United Nations World Tourism Organisation (UNWTO) made a special mention about Kerala for the Emerging Global Destination in the Accessible Destination Awards 2019. © Twitter Well, the special mention was in place for Kerala being the first to work as per the UNWTO guidelines for making tourist destinations disabled-friendly and we surely do need these places in numbers, across the country. The recognition though was for the implementation of the project in Thrissur, which is India's first disabled-friendly destination to win the honour. The award is given by the World Tourism Organization and ONCE Foundation that works for people with disabilities. The awards at the Spanish capital were given away as part of FITUR Trade Fair, which is a meeting point for tourism professionals the world over and is the second-biggest global gathering of travel and tourism professionals. In March last year, Kerala introduced the barrier-free project in order to make at least 120 destinations within the state disabled-friendly. In October, Kerala Tourism Minister Kadakampally Surendran had said that 98 destinations out of the 120 tourist spots across the state which were identified for the first phase have already been made completely disabled-friendly. Thrissur was amongst the first only because it's the cultural capital of Kerala, one of the first few destinations in the state, to create the complete infrastructure in all its destinations like Azhikode and Snehatheeram, the hill destination of Vilangankunnu and the scenic dams in Poomala and Vazhani. © Twitter The upcoming project include Chavakkad Beach, Peechi and Thumboormuzhi. The facilities include ramps, accessible toilets, lactation rooms, Braille pamphlets, signage, touch-screen kiosks, audio and sign aids, wheelchairs and walking aids. They have been made available in major tourist destinations in the district. Hailing the achievement, Kerala Tourism Minister Shri Kadakampally Surendran said, âWe deserve this honour. It will enhance Keralaâs reputation as a global tourist destination.â While Kerala tourism is working towards making all its tourist destinations travel friendly for disabled people, we only hope more states in India come forward and implement progressive and infrastructural and viable structures for the differently-abled. This is a great project initiated by Kerala and we hope by 2021 the entire state caters to disabled people through its tourism. View the full article
  2. Google announced a bunch of new hardware and new software updates for products last night at its annual I/OI event in San Francisco. The search engine giant announced the Pixel 3a, The Nest Hub and upcoming Android Q features. Having said that, hardware products are refreshed each year and Google announced something more important than any average person would expect. Google researched are working to train its already competent speech recognition system to understand people with speech impairments. It's a very basic thing nobody would have thought to explore via technology but Google is using Artificial Intelligence (AI) to achieve this feat. It's called Project Euphoria and we got to see a preview of what it can possibly do to help people with speech impairments. © Google Having a family member who suffers from multiple sclerosis, Project Euphoria evoked an emotion that not many people can comprehend. Google is currently working with people who have neurological conditions including ALS or amyotrophic lateral sclerosis so that AI can better understand speech patterns. Even though it's in very early stages, we got to see how Project Euphoria can transcribe speech better to help people with speak impairment communicate. © Google There are various ways for people to communicate, for example, transcribing is just one of the ways for someone to communicate. People can even use a keyboard to type out a response or even send commands via Google Assistant without ever speaking. This can be fired up with just a button that connects to Google Assistant. © Google In order to improve speech recognition and prediction, Google is asking everyone from around the world to submit voice samples. This data will be used to improve algorithms that are used by the speech recognition software. “Fundamental AI research which enables new products for people with disabilities is an important way we drive our mission forward,” said Google CEO Sundar Pichai onstage. “This will ultimately result in products that work better for all of us. It's the perfect example of what we mean by building a more helpful Google for everyone.” Why Is Project Euphoria Important? © Google Well for the simple reason that it will make the world a more inclusive place. The ability for people suffering from speech impairment to communicate with family members, friends and other people with similar diseases has far more social implications than you can imagine. Disabled people will be able to communicate emotions like laughter, despair, happiness, and even anger that was not possible earlier. It will also benefit people with hearing impairments as they can simply read the transcribed text for communication. This in turn not only makes the lives of disabled people easier, making it more inclusive. It makes people with speech and hearing impairments get more familiar with emotions, feel less conscious about communicating in public and above all else, express feelings that disabled people couldn't do effectively before. To know more about Google's efforts and Project Euphoria, you can watch a short video below that will give you a better idea.
  3. Former Marine Commando and disabled ironman athlete Praveen Teotia has just proved that there are no limits to success if you set your mind to it. Praveen has become India's first disabled Ironman after winning the prestigious Ironman Triathlon Championship 2018 in South Africa. © Facebook For those who don't know, Teotia is a Shaurya Chakra winner. In the horrific attacks of 26/11, Praveen took bullets in his chests and helped neutralize terrorists inside the Taj Mahal Hotel. During the encounter Teotia suffered a punctured lung and became hearing impaired after a bullet piereced his ear. He was later given non-active duty by the navy and that proved to be his biggest motivation to compete for the toughest race on earth. “I wanted to prove myself and the Navy that I am still a commando not only in spirit but physically as well. No Navy man from India has ever finished the Triathlon so far,” Teotia said. © Facebook The race was not easy for Teotia as the derailleur of his cycle broke down 70kms before the finish line, leaving him with a gearless cycle. “One has to complete 180.2 km of cycling in the Ironman Trithalon. After cycling for 110 km, the derailleur of my cycle crumbled and I fell down on the road and injured my knee and ankle in the accident. But I did not give up. There was bike maintenance tent hardly 50 metres away. They repaired my cycle in 35 minutes and made it gearless. It was really tough to cycle uphill for next 70 km but I mustered my courage and completed the cycle of 180.2 km in 7:37 hours,” Teotia told the Free Press Journal. Praveen took voluntary retirement from Navy last July and started working in security at the Taj Group in Delhi. However, he resigned in March to prepare for the Ironman competition. © Facebook “After resigning from the Taj Group, I went to Goa on March 2 to prepare myself to the toughest challenge. After practising for one month under the guidance of Kaustubh Radkar, I went to South Africa and won the title,” recalled Teotia. Teotia's coach Radkar, who's a professional Ironman coach identifies Praveen as someone with a 'mentally and physically strong persona'. “He (Teotia) was introduced to me by a friend. I knew that he is a disabled person but since he is a marine commando. The MARCOS undergo rigorous training. They are well determined and never give up challenges. They would fight till end. It was pleasure for me to coach him. I am very happy to see him,” said Radkar. With this success at the Ironman competition in SA, Teotia is now preparing for America's Ultraman that will be held in February next year and we are sure that the ex-marine commando will come up triumphant in his quest for glory.
  4. Photo: AFP Alongside well-groomed canines taking part in beauty contests this week at Britain´s Crufts dog show, specially trained Labradors, poodles and cocker spaniels showed off a different set of skills that can save the lives of their disabled owners. These four-legged helpers are trained not just to help the blind or partially sighted but also to recognise a variety of sounds for the deaf or detect the signs of an impending epileptic fit. Some of the dogs can recognise the sound of an alarm clock, a knock on the door or a fire alarm -- and transmit the information by moving their paws or adopting certain positions. Veronica Pearce, a spokeswoman for the association Hearing Dogs For Deaf People, which was taking part in the display at Crufts, the world´s biggest dog show, said the aim of the charity was to give disabled people their independence back. "We have got lots of people who before might be relying on their parents or their parents wouldn´t be able to leave them, but are now living on their own," Pearce said. Since it was created in 1985, the organisation has helped more than 2,000 people. "If someone requests a certain sound at application stage, we will make sure that the dog is trained ready for that," said Janine Hovey, a 27-year-old trainer. One example is training dogs to react to baby monitors. "If they´ve got a child, and they want to be able to hear the baby monitor, we can train the dog for that specific sound," she said. ´Got my freedom back´ For the past three years, John Morris, a former warehouse worker based in Leeds in northern England, has had Theo, a cocker spaniel given to him by the association. "I have now got my freedom back. Without him, I could not go out," said Morris, who lost his hearing 15 years ago because of his job and now works as a volunteer for the association. For Morris, it is about more than having a dog who can hear for him. Walking around with Theo and the curiosity that the dog arouses has given Morris his confidence back. "I now talk to people, whereas I didn´t before. I couldn´t look at people in the face," he said. "It gives me a new life". In total, more than 7,000 people in Britain are helped by a dog, including around 5,000 for the blind or partially sighted. Epilepsy warning Diagnosed with epilepsy in 1998, Lynn Radcliffe lost her driving licence and her job and had to give up going to football games. "It was really dangerous to go out on my own. Just simple things like crossing the road were dangerous -- I could have gone into a seizure without warning, so I had to have someone with me." The arrival of Simba, a Labrador trained by the association Support Dogs, has changed things. "There are very subtle signals that we wouldn´t see, but dogs are very good at picking these signals up," said Rita Howson, the director of the association, which also helps adults with physical handicaps and autistic children. "They can warn the person between 15 or 50 minutes prior to that seizure happening." While a warning bark fails to prevent an epileptic seizure it does give time for people to prepare for it. "It makes life safer in the house," said Radcliffe.

  6. If the name Roberto Esquivel Cabrera does not remind you of anything or anyone, then chances are you were probably too busy looking at his pictures all this while that you never bothered to remember his name. In 2015, the 55-year-old Roberto made headlines for owning the world's largest ***** (a staggering 18.9 inches long), which touches his knees. While, he broke the internet back then and people didn't think twice before cracking jokes on his super long 'manhood', Roberto is far from getting any potential suitors. Roberto, who once wished to work in the porn industry, has now been registered as disabled because he cannot kneel or wear any uniform. In fact, Roberto now has to depend on food banks and benefits from the government to keep him going. © Facebook/ Trivias And Facts 101 He said “I cannot wear a uniform like anybody in the companies and also I cannot get on my knees.” He further added, “I cannot run fast and so the companies think badly of me. They say that they will call me, but they never do.” In fact, Roberto faces a lot of problems like urinary tract infections and trouble sleeping because of his ***** that is wrapped in bandages. According to the doctors, he actually has 6 inches of functional *****, the rest of it is the foreskin. However, he does not want to undergo penile reduction because he wants it to be recognized by the Guinness Book of World Records. © Facebook/ Roberto Esquivel Cabrera People can never get anywhere close to understanding the pain and troubles Roberto goes through every day. However, he seems to be happy with his ***** because no one else has that size. He said, “I would like to be in the Guinness Book of Records but they don't recognize this record. I am famous because I have the biggest ***** in the world. I am happy with my *****, I know nobody has the size I have.'” Roberto further added, “Every four months they give me some economic assistance but it is not enough. I visit the food banks every day to take my meals at 12 'o clock”. However, Roberto is quite happy with his ***** and wishes to go back to the U.S. and spend the rest of his life there. In fact, he even said, “I don't feel sad because I know in the US there are a lot of women. One of them will be the right size for me.” © Facebook Roberto is still hopeful about becoming a porn star and thinks he will make a lot of money in that profession. He added, “And the people are not like over here, they are more liberal: they don't care about what I have in my pants.” We appreciate the optimism in Roberto's attitude and for all those who were drowning in the pool of jealousy, turns out it's not something rewarding. It has become more of a bane that a boon. Source: Daily Mail
  7. Tom Bossert, homeland security adviser to President Donald Trump, holds a press briefing to publicly blame North Korea for unleashing the so-called WannaCry cyber attack at the White House in Washington, U.S., December 19, 2017. REUTERS WASHINGTON: Facebook Inc and Microsoft Corp acted last week to disable a number of North Korean cyber actions, White House homeland security adviser Tom Bossert said on Tuesday as the United States publicly blamed Pyongyang for a May cyber attack that crippled hospitals, banks and other companies. Bossert did not provide details on those actions but said the US government was calling on companies to cooperate in cyber security defense.
  8. GENEVA: The UN's human rights chief said Tuesday he was "truly shocked" by the Israeli army's killing of a wheelchair-bound Palestinian protester in Gaza, and demanded an "independent and impartial investigation". Ibrahim Abu Thurayeh, a 29-year-old who lost both his legs in an Israeli attack a decade ago, was among five Palestinians killed on Friday during protests against US President Donald Trump's decision to recognise Jerusalem as the capital of Israel. In a statement, UN High Commissioner for Human Rights Zeid Ra'ad Al Hussein slammed Trump's decision as "dangerously provocative" and blamed it for the violence. Following an initial investigation, the Israeli army said on Monday it had not deliberately targeted him and had found no evidence of any "moral or professional failures". The UN office said Abu Thurayeh was among hundreds of people who marched across farmland towards the fence separating Gaza from Israel and appeared to have been shot in the head when he was 20 metres (yards) away from it. "The facts gathered so far by my staff in Gaza strongly suggest that the force used against Ibrahim Abu Thurayeh was excessive," Zeid said. "As far as we can see, there is nothing whatsoever to suggest that Ibrahim Abu Thurayeh was posing an imminent threat of death or serious injury when he was killed. "Given his severe disability, which must have been clearly visible to those who shot him, his killing is incomprehensible - a truly shocking and wanton act." In video footage recorded early on Friday, Abu Thurayeh could be seen holding the Palestinian flag and giving the victory sign to Israeli soldiers across the border. 'Dangerously provocative' Israel seized the largely-Arab eastern sector of Jerusalem during the 1967 Six-Day War and later annexed it, claiming both sides of the city as its "eternal and undivided capital." But the Palestinians want the eastern sector as capital of their future state and have been infuriated by Trump´s decision to recognise the city as the Israeli capital. The UN rights office said Israeli forces had used live fire to disperse the protesters, indicating that the violence could be "traced directly back to the unilateral US announcement on the status of Jerusalem, which breaks international consensus and was dangerously provocative." Zeid also called for "an independent and impartial investigation" to ensure perpetrators were held accountable. On Monday, the Israeli army said its troops had been faced with a "riot" which was "extremely violent and included thousands of rioters." In response, a "few controlled shootings were carried out towards main instigators," but "no live fire was aimed at Abu Thuraya," it said in a statement. "It is impossible to determine whether Abu Thuraya was injured as a result of riot dispersal means or what caused his death," it said, adding: "The initial investigation indicates that no moral or professional failures were identified."
  9. The FIR quoting his statement says that the father was unable to take care of his daughter and other children alone MULTAN: Police have arrested a man from the city?s Basti Malook area for drowning her 5-year-old differently-abled daughter in a canal. A father of four, Riaz said it had become difficult for him to take care of her visually-impaired and disabled daughter after his wife passed away six months ago, police said. The FIR quoting his statement says that the father was unable to take care of his daughter and other children by himself. Police have registered a case, filed by the child?s paternal grandfather. A number of cases of parents killing their children due to poverty or domestic disputes have been reported in Pakistan. Mother suffocates three children to death after 'domestic dispute' A rescue operation is underway to recover the bodies from a canal Last week, a woman murdered her three children in cold blood near Hafizabad?s Sakhekhi vicinity on Saturday over a domestic dispute.
  10. J.K. Rowling LONDON: ?Harry Potter? author J.K. Rowling, an outspoken critic of US President Donald Trump, apologised Tuesday for suggesting he ignored a child in a wheelchair at a White House event. The British writer -- like Trump a prolific user of Twitter -- used the social network to admit she had been mistaken and apologise "unreservedly" to the boy and his family. "Re: my tweets about the small boy in a wheelchair whose proffered hand the president appeared to ignore in press footage, sources have informed me that was not a full or accurate representation of their interaction," she wrote. "I very clearly projected my own sensitivities around the issue of disabled people being overlooked or ignored onto the images I saw and if that caused any distress to that boy or his family, I apologise unreservedly." On July 24, Trump and Vice President Mike Pence hosted several families who the White House said had been "heavily burdened" by Obamacare, including the little boy and his mother. Rowling had deplored "how stunning, and how horrible" it was that Trump seemed to ignore him. She has since deleted those tweets, although they were published by the Daily Mail website. A video posted on the White House website clearly shows the president bending down to talk to the child.
  11. Rules can’t really contain human emotion. When you feel for something from your heart, chances are that you will end up doing going in that direction. Godhraj Meena, a BSF constable would have never expected that Home Minsiter Rajnath Singh would break a protocol to thank him for his service to the country. In 2014, during the J & K, Udhampur attacks, Meena suffered an attack that caused an 85% disability. The bus he was travelling in with his fellow soldiers was ambushed mid-way on 5th August 2014 near the Narsu Nalah area. The convoy took heavy fire and shelling. Meena’s brave efforts and swift presence of mind kept two armed assailants away from the vehicle, which eventually saved 30 lives. Credit: BCCL Meena suffered collateral damage. A bullet pierced through his mouth and eventually robbed him of his speech. His limbs and upper body also suffered major injuries. But like a classic Indian Army soldier, he took the beating and did his duty. Right after pinning the gallantry medal on Meena’s chest, the home minister hugged him as a gesture of how grateful the country is in to Meena’s sacrifice. Usually, as per the protocol, after pinning the medal, there’s a handshake and the jawan moves forward. The internet loved it and acted accordingly Heart touching gesture indeed @rajnathsingh Jihttps://t.co/yjOQkLiWHS — Smita (@DikshitSmita) June 1, 2017 Great act @rajnathsingh. U just didnt hug the soldier but u hugged the heart of billions n billions — Shakir Khan (@shakir69) June 1, 2017 Meena, will now be undertaking administrative duties. The 3 other brave hearts were constable Subhendu Roy, driver Daljit Singh and constable Rocky who was awarded the Shaurya Chakra. We salute their bravery. Here the video from the event.
