"The only source for accessible news broadcasted daily in ASL with voice over and captions! Including a diverse library of original content available on-demand!" DPAN.TV is a video feed network that has it's own website or can be followed on facebook to pop-up on your feed. It has reliable and objective reporting as well as a unique look into entertainment. My father is mostly deaf and I grew up in a household with mild ASL and captions on everything that had it available. As I grow older my hearing is progressively worsening so I have since learned ASL; DPAN.TV provides news in an engaging and unique format.

NCTM is a valuable source to any mathematics teacher, providing valuable resources and publications in the field of mathematics.

Moana has touched the hearts of the world with it's down to earth and real message about finding oneself. My nephews, age 5 and 6, love this movie and could watch it every day of their lives ! I am always listening to music while I work to keep my mind engaged, this is my go to song.
