In this case, I have been subscribing about anything that includes the words “deaf  Philippines” and “MCCID”. I combined the words “deaf” and “Philippines” because I only want to filter the result coming from my country.  But many times, the word “deaf” appears as a metaphor or part of an idiom “fall on deaf ears” which means being ignored by persons they were intended for. Well, that’s a shortcoming of the query.

Going to my main topic, I received an email link about a news article from Abs-cbn News about a deaf man which also has intellectual impairment killed in southern part of the Philippines. Here is the complete repost which appeared last December 13, 2011:

Police discovered head wounds on Pacaldo, who was a resident of Barangay Sumihilon.

I will be re-posting other articles I gathered from Google Alert.🙂
