What is a TDD A telecommunications device for the deaf, or TDD works like instant messaging on a computer. The TDD is made up of a keyboard, display screen, modem, and printer. First, the user types a message on the keyboard and then sends it to another TDD. When the message reaches its destination, it appears on the other user’s display screen. The TDD does not ring like a regular telephone does. Instead, a flashing
light tells the person at the other and that a message is waiting. Some TDD systems include a vibrating wristband to aleart the person that a message has arrived. There are alos message relay centers so that people using regular telephones can send messages to TDD’s. Today, more than foru million people in the United States have TDD’s. This communication tool makes it easyfor people with sever hearing disablities to “reach out an dtouch sombody” with a message

How Would You Classify the Planets? Three Types of Planets People often think all planets are alike, but there are actually three types of planets in the solar system. The terrestrial plants are made of rock and metal and are closest to the sun. These include the midsize planets Mercury, Venus, Earth, and Mars. They rotate slowly and don’t have many moons. Farther from the are the
planets called gas giants, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, and Neptune. They are called gas giants because they are formed from gases such as hydrogen and helium. Gas giants rotate fast and have many moons. Finally, planetoids are objects made up of rock and ice and are too small to be true “planets.” Planetoids sometimes even get pulled into a planet’s gravitational field and become moons themselves. Whether they are terrestrials, gas giants or planetoids, the planets in the solar system are fascinating.
