Amazon Is The First Major Tech Company To Hire Full-Time ASL Interpreters


Michael Nesmith is a creative guru at Amazon—his official title being an art director. If you can’t tell by the sleeve of tattoos he has on both of his arms, then you can definitely tell by the myriad of graphics he has designed to advertise Amazon’s products, such as Alexa and the Fire TV Stick.
However, Nesmith isn’t your average guy. He is deaf, which he describes as being both his “superpower” and “kryptonite.” He has been unable to hear since he was a child and was raised by deaf parents.
Unlike any other job he had before joining Amazon, Nesmith has access to a full-time, consistent American Sign Language (ASL) interpreter. Early in 2018, Amazon incorporated an ASL program that entails hiring interpreters as full-time employees, and each interpreter works with the same group of people. Amazon is known to be the only major tech company to provide this service at such a large scale for its deaf employees.
“In our [deaf] culture, we don't really see deafness as a disability. We see it as a unique culture with a language and with an education system that is different from the mainstream,” Nesmith explains. “What’s important is to have access to language. So that's the only thing that really makes, from the outside perspective, my disability unique.” (Jeff Williamson was Nesmith’s interpreter during this interview with Forbes.)

100 Best Things to Do in Iceland


Land of the Vikings, craft beers, and jaw-dropping scenery, Iceland has really come to the forefront of hipster and iconic-photographer’s attention in recent years as a hotspot (pun intended) for all things cultural, tartan-patterned and artisan coffee-orientated. With views and natural beauty to impress even the most underwhelmed of more party or sun-seeking travellers, Iceland caters for all and has experienced a surge of economic growth in the past 15 years, welcoming over 1,000,000 visitors in 2015. With this wide variety of interests and nationalities in mind, we’ve compiled a comprehensive list of 100 of the best things to do in Iceland, from scenic walks and nature tours, to the best craft beers and bars to visit, to . Here goes our list of 100 things to do in Iceland!
1. Swim in an Open Air Hot Tub (Reykjavik)
The notorious Blue Lagoon has produced many iconic images of travel in Iceland, and while it’s less than an hour outside Reykjavik city centre, the rather expensive ticket (€65 a pop!) and crowds of tourists may be off-putting for some. Alternative options include the more localised (and cheaper!) Laugardalslaug, and Vesturbaejarlaug in the west of the city, which are both only 10-20 minutes away from the centre. Either way, a dip in a hot spring thermal pool with hot taps and steamed saunas to contrast the chilly temperatures outside is an absolute must to experience when visiting Iceland.
