Lawsuits say Harvard, MIT webcasts leave out deaf Americans

Yahoo! National News - Fri, 02/13/2015 - 00:46

An "H" marks a gate into Harvard Yard at Harvard University in CambridgeBy Scott Malone CAMBRIDGE, Mass. (Reuters) - An advocacy group for the deaf on Thursday sued Harvard University and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, saying the elite schools had violated laws by posting online video and audio recordings for public use that lacked accurate captions. Two lawsuits charged that Harvard and MIT said the webcast recordings were intended to provide the public free access to the schools but were unusable by people with difficulty hearing because they either lacked captions or had captions that were so poor as to be unusable. "Harvard has largely denied access to this content to the approximately 48 million - nearly one out of five - Americans who are deaf or hard of heading," plaintiffs, including the National Association for the Deaf, said in a filing in U.S. District Court in Boston on Thursday.


FBI director calls for national conversation on race

Yahoo! National News - Fri, 02/13/2015 - 00:45

FBI Director James Comey answers questions during a news conference at the FBI office in BostonBy Julia Edwards WASHINGTON (Reuters) - FBI Director James Comey on Thursday called for a conversation about race in the United States that extends beyond law enforcement. Speaking at Georgetown University, Comey said the United States is at a crossroads following incidents involving white police officers fatally shooting unarmed black men in 2014. He called for a national debate about real and perceived racial biases both inside and outside law enforcement. Comey said racial bias is not an epidemic in law enforcement any more than it is in academia or the arts and quoted from a song in the musical "Avenue Q" titled “Everyone’s a Little Bit Racist.” Comey’s speech marked the first time in recent history that an FBI director has specifically addressed the issue of race, an FBI spokesman said.
