Cochlear Implant recall
On September 11 Cochlear Limited announced a recall of some versions of their N5 implant. This recall sent their shares immediately tumbling by a hefty 20%. why would a company which has experienced phenomenal growth and increases in share prices do something so drastic?

Cochlear implant 9 years on
It’s so hard to believe that it is going on 9 years since I had my first Cochlear Implant. It’s such a long time that I’ve found myself thinking about how I feel about it now, as well as the differences and changes it has made in my life.

Too old for a Cochlear implant?
You’d think that perhaps someone who was (say) over 90 would be too old to have a Cochlear Implant wouldn’t you. Well it seems this is not always the case.

Deafness Costs Money
Deafness costs money. There are devices needed to help hear but a recent report found the real costs are in loss of productivity. But some things can't be costed - like the loss of quality of life. Early intervention has shown to improve this.

Captioned Theatre
Equal access for the hearing impaired has long been an issue so it was nice to have captioned theatre available in my city. This is how it worked for me.

Perception of music by hearing impaired adults
I attended a lecture by Geoff Plant, AO about Music perception for Cochlear Implantees. Some of the discussion was very interesting.

Spoonerisms, Kniferisms, Forkerisms
No we're not talking about the cutlery drawer. Language is fun and these are some of the fun and funny things we do with it.

Mondegreen
What does the funny word Mondegreen mean and where does it come from? Read on to find out.

The nuances of Jokes
One of the things I hated, when I was deaf, was when a friend would say "hey have you heard this story it was so funny". Too often I missed the humour and especially the punch line.

Onomatopoeia
Onomatopoeia's a big word, funny to say and even harder to spell. The dictionary definition is “the formation of a word by imitation of the sound”. So this means a word sounds like a sound.
