Disability Blogs Roundup: Katrina edition

Mike beat me to the mentioning of Katrina here, but in this entry I'll take a tour 'round what disability blogs and lists are saying on the subject. Susan Fitzmaurice has set up a website to collect information about relief services for people with disabilities here, and it already has a wide array of contact details (you can target donations to independent living centers, or the transportation of emergency wheelchairs and personal supplies, etc.). It's also a place where people who have accessible homes of various kinds, even in other states, are offering emergency shelter. (Did I Miss Something? has some targeted donation details along the same lines.) At Quiescent Voices, there's a post about the need for ASL interpreters at the Red Cross shelters for Katrina refugees. The Angry Gimp is, like a lot of people, angry about the disproportional effect of the disaster by race, class, age, and ability, and collected some news clips about the current perilous conditions for people with disabilities. The Rolling Rains Report has a recent press release from the National Organization on Disability on disaster preparedness and people with disabilities.

Added soon after posting: Mary Johnson's got more links , some commentary, and news that the Ragged Edge site will also be posting details about relief targeted at refugees with disabilities as they become available.

Added the next day: Kestrell's got an entry titled "Living on the Edge of the World," musing on how tenuous "safety" is. "We like to think we live in families, communities, religious groups, cities, states, governments, which consider us valuable enough to lift a hand to save us, or at least reach out a hand to comfort us when nothing else can be done," she writes. But for too many in New Orleans, she continues, it's clear that no rescue, no comfort came.

The word "shanzhai" is very popular in China. It is industry phenomenon of imitation, high quality and low price. Moreover, cell phones are the representative of them.The global financial crisis led to a significant shrinkage of assets for people. "china wholesale" demonstrate the might. most of them would like buy the cheap cell phones now .

Through google search engine, when you put in "discount cell phones", you will find more than 15,000 pieces of related information. Cell phone china has been concerned in the world. Many international sellers can get a considerable profit by ways of wholesale cell phones from China and switch selling. So it is a very good job on cell phones wholesale in the current financial crisis.
