Sunrise Assisted Living abuses their handicapped privileges Timelapse video shot from Mon, 30 Nov 09 @ 8:00PM until Tues, 1 Dec 09 @ 8:55AM (13 hours). Vehicles in Santa Monica, CA with handicapped plates are permitted to park at meters without paying and in permit zones without permits. Obviously, this was intended for handicapped vehicle owners. Sunrise Assisted Living owns a handicapped passenger van with disabled plates. Despite having their own parking garage and handicapped loading zone in front of their property, they've decided to park their commercial passenger van on 15th Street overnight when they're not transporting passengers. A complete abuse of their handicapped plate privilege if you ask me. Perhaps the non-handicapped residents of 15th street should start parking in the Sunrise Assisted Living parking lot overnight...

Triumph Together film Triumph Together was a Inclusive Visual Arts Initiative of Trinayani where in 18 participants, 12 artists with different disabilities collaborated with 6 non disabled artists. The basic premise of the workshop was that people with disabilities possess skills and/or abilities that non-disabled people do not and Due to lack of understanding, awareness, or simply sharing, these skills remain undetected and often unutilised by what is considered the mainstream. The workshop, through collaborative projects, compelled people with and without disabilities to rely on and work with each others special skills. The workshop aims to create an environment where people with or without different disabilities are persuaded to collaborate with each other, perforce using each others skills.

dating and the future here's what I said: A while back, someone asked me if I prefer dating disabled guys or non-disabled guys. Personally, I don't have a preference. I have dated 2 disabled guys, both of whom had CP. However, neither of them had the same degree that I have. The first one had severe spastic quadriplegia. His muscles were so tight and he had such severe spasms that his arms had to be strapped down to is wheelchair. Despite the fact that his muscles were so tight, he somehow could speak well. The second one had mild spastic diplegia, which means it only affected his legs. He was able to walk on his own without, the use of a walker or crutches. He just had a, limp. The reason why I haven't dated a non-disabled guy yet is probably because I wasn't around, them much. I went to a school for physically challenged kids, from kindergarten until 12th grade. Though I don't have a preference about dating disabled guys or non-disabled guys, I would prefer to date a guy who is more able than I am. Reason being, I could never help a guy out with daily needs since I can't help myself. I would love to get married and have a family one day. Thankfully, CP is NOT genetic, so if I were to have biological children, I couldn not pass on my disability. There are plenty of genetic disabilities out there, such as, dwarfism (which causes a person to be short statured, muscular dystrophy (which causes progressive muscle weakness), spinal muscular atrophy (which causes muscle weakness), osteogenesis ...

Seeing the many people stepping up to help makes me feel proud to know that they will always stand behind us no matter what."
Candoco Dance Company 2008-09: The Perfect Human / Still Performing live at London's Southbank Centre's Queen Elizabeth Hall 24 - 25 February 'The company for which choreographers reserve their wildest and often most inventive work' (Observer). The Perfect Human is choreographer Hofesh Shechter's dynamic exploration of the body; a dark unsettling piece of intense, relentless and powerful movement by UK's hottest young choreographer. His work can also be seen in E4's Skins. In Still, hedonist Nigel Charnock (DV8 founding member) takes the dancers and audience into a world of love and loss, lust, addictions and obsessions. A chaotic, wild and humourous piece using a unique blend of morbid irony and black comedy. CandoCo Dance Company are the leading contemporary dance company of disabled and non-disabled dancers, who recently performed at both the Olympic and Paralympic closing ceremonies in Beijing 2008.

Should Disabled Kids Be Educated With Non-Disabled Kids? In a word: no. Discussed (apparently I think I write for the Believer): bullying, "the real world," going to war in order to grow up, the politics of help ( BY THE WAY. I know the reaction to this kind of thing is "but it costs so much money to give everyone a good non-traumatizing education." But if you could train kids to be each other's aides you could save money and also help the kids with future jobs.

Capital Metro Express For Non Disabled and Whites Only Mr. Jim Crow Bus Driver Terry Allison Today Tuesday 1/25/11 around 8:42 PM I was waiting for the bus in route to my second residence in Austin, Tx. Walking from Trinity and 15th, to Lavaca and 15th which is a long walk (capital metro doesn't believe in running local service bus down 15th street) I approached a White Male bus driver by the name of Terry Allison StarTran Bus Number 9102 #983 who blantely doesn't believe in the Reasonable Accomdation Requirement of the Federal Americans With Disabilites Act and admits to denying me Reasonable Accomdation. He got upset when I lifted the grey holder up when paying the fare and I told him sir I am handicap and I need it up. He calls security and gives all the White passengers comment cards. I tell him I am recording this and will post this on YouTube. Willdav is a man of his words here. It is on YouTube on the quick. I will also send this video to the FTA and CEO Linda Stephenson Watson and demand this driver give me a face to face apolgy in mine and Linda presense. Paying in coins is not a crime. Notice at first the driver didn't want to pick me up, and then he lied to me and told me we don't give daypases. It is $1.35. How many other Disabled people and Hispanics has this racist bus driver done this to? As you see in this video they are nothing but White People on this bus. Call Capital Metro 389-7400 demand to speak to Linda Stephenson Watson and demand Terry Allison be fired ASAP!!! If they do not give this driver some sort of discipline I will sue Capital ...
FoM CB4 - *** the Police ***ing with the GD and their imba stuns. Clips were shot a few days before the sprint patch. The combat system is currently broken - luck based CoF, ridiculously overpowered stuns (about 3 accurate hits to stun a level 6/7 armor target), retarded weight system that makes dodging pretty much impossible (winning a simple 1v2 against non-handicapped people is a miracle). RIP FoM, -Magnum X
Freewheelers need you! The Audacity Project: Have you met a non-disabled person who made you feel like you were from a separate world? Have you felt awkward about how to behave when meeting a disabled person? We want your stories... The Freewheelers are exploring the meeting point between two worlds that shouldn't be separate - between disabled people and non-disabled people. And we are researching people's stories of moments when they were treated by others as being different or separate. Or moments where they suddenly felt awkward, separate or apart.
I define me! "I define me!" comes from ideas of people with developmental disabilities about what they wanted non-disabled folks to know about what it is like to have a disability. Disabled folks want everyone to know the kinds of labels people put on the disabled. "I Define Me" shows how some disabled folks feel about being labeled. This video has been sent to Canadian TV stations as a PSA (Public Service Announcement). Visit to find out more.
GOOD: Cambodian Sports good.is Decades of war and internal strife have left Cambodia with one of the highest proportions of people disabled by land mines in the world. The country's only professional sports league is the Cambodian National Volleyball League (Disabled), a scrappy network of volleyball teams whose players once fought against each other in times of civil war and now face each other on the court. They also sponsor a wheelchair racing program which empowers women who would traditionally be confined to their homes. Currently, the national volleyball team is ranked number three in the world, and regularly defeats non-disabled teams including an Australian navy squad which has tasted defeat three years running. These national heroes may have lost limbs to land mines, but they'll still whoop you in volleyball.

pet rider Designed for pets that can no longer use their legs to get around due to old age, injury, surgery, etc. Gives handicapped animals the freedom of mobility again. Can also be used to carry a non-handicapped pet, for example in a parade or pet show. Battery powered for silent, efficient operation and low operating costs. Remote control of all driving functions, horn and lights. Set the carrier speed to match your walking or jogging speed. Latched driving means the operator does not need to hold the button down for the carrier to continue to travel. An emergency stop button brings the carrier to an immediate stop. Four-wheel independent suspension, custom designed for this carrier, gives the pet a very comfortable ride. Adjustable suspension can fine-tune the ride to the pet's weight. The front of the carrier is left open so the pet can see the surroundings and can exit without turning around or backing out. Built in ramp makes it easier to bring the pet into the carrier. Attachment points for the leash or harness. Pet has a comfortable mattress to lie on during travel. The mattress is designed to direct urine to drain out the back of carrier. The covering is marine grade fabric with an anti-bacterial coating. A joystick controller is built into the carrier. It is limited to slow speeds and is used to maneuver the carrier in tight locations because it has better low speed control. The joystick has a built-in screen that gives the operator information such as battery state of ...
¨How We Saved The Earth" (Museum Exhibit Concept) This is a video-prototype of a project for a museum exhibit meant to be universally accessible by handicapped users as well as non-handicapped users. The museum is set "in the future" but presented in the present. It represents the story of different artifacts "the human race used to utilize" as resources for energy and living and how we stopped using them given how harmful they are to the environment. The museum shows what resources "the human race replaced" for better, more efficient and environmentally friendly alternatives. I apologize for the massive amount of spelling errors within the video. The person who edited the second part of this presentation did so in a rush and I never had access to the original Second Life files to re-edit it myself.
qoltmovie.avi A 1:4 scale model of a mechanism to assist in the transfer of the elderly from wheelchair to toilet. The mechanism aids the user in standing and then again to sit. It can fold out of the way so that non-handicapped users can use the bathroom and requires only two actuators, one of which does not have to be high-powered (the lead screw). The model is automated with an Arduino Nano, using a small 1:298 DC motor with lead screw attachment for the sled's linear motion, a microservo for the pivoting arms, and a servo for turning the person. A linear potentiometer senses how far the sled is extended.
Perceptions of the Disabled Here's what I said: I tried speaking in this video but I had too much to say and it ran over 10 minutes. So, I have to use my communication device. I've noticed that some people don't consider me to be "normal." If you really think about the word "normal," you'll realize that there is no clear cut definition; it's very subjective. You're idea of "normal" is most likely completely different from mine. I don't consider myself not to be "normal" just because I have Cerebral Palsy and I require assistance to perform daily activities. I see myself as a 21 year old who attends college just like any non-disabled person my age does. When most people see me, they only see the differences between them and I and they automatically feel sorry for me, which I simply do not understand. They don't see me, as a person, they only see my disability. They assume that I have the intelligence of a two year old and/or that I'm miserable because I have a disability. Neither of which are true. I'm in no way unintelligent because I have a disability. I'm not sick and I don't wish to be cured. There is no cure for Cerebral Palsy and it doesn't shorten a person's lifespan. I am perfectly happy with the way I am. I'm not just saying that to appear strong, I truly mean it. I've had Cerebral Palsy all my life and I will have it for the rest of my life and I'm okay with that. I went to a K-12 school for kids with all different kinds of physical disabilities. Attending that school made me thankful for ...

Young Voices - young people's view on inclusive education 1 Part 1 in a unique 14 minute long documentary on what young people them selves think about inclusion and exclusion in school. Here represented by young disabled and non-disabled people in from three schools in Uganda and Tanzania practising inclusion. Through drawing and photography the students told their stories. They where equipped with simple digital cameras and asked to take photographs or draw pictures of places in school that make them feel happy and places that make them feel unhappy. It shows that inclusion is much more than just making schools physically accessible, it is as much about attitudes, how classrooms are organized, how teachers teach and encourage their students, the standards of hygiene etc. Things we all care about in school! The film is accompanied by a photobooklet and a facilitators guide with the whole transcript of the film - which can be accessed on Enjoy!
