Sign1News 8.21.19 – News for the Deaf community powered by CNN in American Sign Language (ASL).


Hello everyone! Welcome to Sign1News live. I’m Jethro Wooddall. Here are your top stories for today. Deaf sports history was made in North Carolina
on Monday. South Korean tennis player Duckhee Lee became
the first deaf tennis player to ever win an ATP main draw match. The twenty-one-year-old beat Switzerland’s
Henri Laaksonen in the first round of the Winston Salem Open straight sets, 7-6, 6-1. With the historic win, Lee moved up in the
rankings to 208th in the world. Unfortunately Lee’s ride in the tournament
was short-lived. He lost to Poland’s Hubert Hurkacz in the
second round in three sets. Lee’s ATP ranking is now 212. Video of sign language interpreter Amber Galloway
Gallego interpreting for rapper Twista is going viral. Twista is considered one of the fastest rappers
of all time. Words come out of his mouth at lightning fast
speed. Saturday night Galloway Gallego stole the
show. She had no problem keeping up with the rapper’s
high-speed lyrics. The clip quickly went viral with many giving
props to Galloway Gallego. Some say she deserves a try at a world record
and Guinness welcomed it. Even Twista tweeted about her spotlight-stealing
signing, saying “She’s the real MVP.” Watch this disturbing video. It shows some Florida panthers stumbling and
falling as they try to walk along trails. The Florida Fish and Wildlife Commission (FWC)
say some of the animals have been hit with a mysterious neurological disorder that’s
affecting their ability to walk. Wildlife officials say the videos are alarming
because they are from multiple areas throughout the state. There are only about 120 adult panthers in
the population and are listed on the Endangered Species Act. FWC says it’s testing for toxins like rat
pesticides, also infectious diseases and nutritional deficiencies to solve the mystery. Take a look at this photo of thirteen-year-old
Juelz Trice’s head. You can see his fade haircut colored with
a black marker. Back in April, the boy came home from school
and told his parents a teacher colored in his hair design with a Sharpie. Now they’re suing. According to the civil rights lawsuit, Juelz
was sent to the office because his haircut violated school dress code. He was told he could either use a marker to
color in his scalp or get suspended. He chose the marker because he was worried
a suspension could affect his eligibility for the track team. The assistant principal, the discipline clerk
and a teacher, all white, are named in the lawsuit along with the school district. The family wants damages and they also want
people who work for the district to go through racial sensitivity training about certain
haircuts. This may look like an ordinary chicken sandwich
but trust me, it’s not. This one sandwich has launched what many are
calling “The Great Chicken Sandwich Twitter War of 2019.” A week ago, fast food chain Popeyes released
its first chicken sandwich nationwide. The sandwich consists of a fried chicken breast
on a brioche bun with pickles and a special sauce. The twitter feud started when Chick-fil-A
tweeted in response to Popeyes new sandwich, highlighting its sandwich as the “original
chicken sandwich.” Popeyes quickly responded by tweeting the
question “Y’all good?” The mocking tone of Popeyes’ tweet garnered
a lot of attention, particularly from other fast food chains. After Popeyes commented on Chick-fil-A’s post,
Wendy’s took a turn touting his chicken sandwich as the best. Wendy’s responded “Y’all out there fighting
about which one of these fools has the second best chicken sandwich.” Popeyes quickly fired back tweeting “Sounds
like someone just ate one of our biscuits because y’all looking thirsty.” In true Wendy’s fashion, the chain had a quickwitted
response saying “LOL, guess that means the food is as dry as the jokes.” Of course Twitter users joined in on the battle,
sharing which restaurant they believe had the best chicken sandwich. Okay Sign1News viewers, let’s solve this chicken
sandwich war once and for all. We’ve placed a poll on our Facebook page and
in our app. Tell us which restaurant you think has the
best chicken sandwich and we’ll share the results of the poll in an upcoming broadcast. For the record, my vote is Chick-fil-A hands-down. Monday, August 26 is National Dog Day and
