Top stories about the deaf:

Employers are avoiding the application
box asking if the applicant is deaf
or disabled. Not in USA, but it was a
big newspaper story in Australia.

………..

Abigail Heringer, the popular deaf contestant
on The Bachelor, did not make the cut,
much to the disappointment of her fans.

……….

British astronaut Tim Peake, who works with
the European Space Agency, said that those
wanting to become astronauts must have
hearing loss of 25 dB or less. In his
viewpoint – deaf astronauts? No!

…………….

A sad situation in the hospital. Interpreter
was not available in Yorkshire, England –
and so, the Coda daughter had to tell her deaf
father that he was dying! The deaf wife
was there to see it all.

………………

Not all European truck drivers know English
(outside of Great Britain). For that reason
there is “Brexit Sign Language” used by
British military troops to communicate
with these truck drivers when they cross
the border both ways.

3D AND DEAF
3D is hot right now. People think 3D
can build anything.
Can it build a CI? Not too sure because
CI must be hand-implanted by a surgeon.

DISAGREEMENT WITH A SCHOOL DISTRICT
Many parents of deaf children have disagreements
with the school district.
An example would be that the parents want to send the
deaf child to a residential school but the district
wants the deaf child to go to a mainstreamed program.
If you live in Virginia, you may be lucky. The
state Department of Education has mediation services.
The parent and the district can go to mediation
and hopefully solve this disagreement issue.
Does your home state have it? Maybe you may need
to find out.

Top stories about the deaf:

A TV historian said, in an interview, that
he remembers very well the deaf actress
(Linda Bove) that played as Allison
in the 1980 episode of Happy Days. Reason
was that the Fonz chose to learn signs
to try to communicate with her rather
than to urge her how to speak. The
irony is that she dumped the Fonz in
favor of another hearing person who
already learned ASL for her.

………..

There is a twist in the Nike lawsuit
settlement by a deaf litigant. As part
of the settlement, Nike is paying the
ligitant an amount of money as service
award because of nearly 20 hours she spent
in preparing the lawsuit.

……….

When Wawa ASL-sang the national anthem
at the Super Bowl, he had one fear – that
the audience would sleep on him. Instead,
he won praises for his rendition!

…………….

A newspaper said:

Court reporting might be the best job you’ve never
considered

This was in reference to recruiting interested
candidates for the captioning field.

………………

Spain has approved see-through face masks
to accommodate the deaf.

DISABILITY STUDIES VERSUS DEAF STUDIES
Disability Studies is a becoming a popular choice of
major at more and more colleges.
It will be interesting to observe the trend of
Deaf Studies with Disability Studies at these colleges.
Will Deaf Studies be absorbed as part of Disability
Studies? Or would both Studies co-exist as two
separate majors?
This would be interesting to see how things play out
within the next five years.

This week’s ASL video in youtube

VERY DEAF PERSON IN DEAF WORLD OR IN HEARING WORLD
There are many “very deaf” people that function
in Deaf World. There are also many “very deaf”
people that function in the hearing world.
Why? Many reasons such as marrying a hearing
spouse, living in a small town,  rejecting Deaf
Culture, parental choice in placing deaf with
hearing people, etc, etc.
There is also another possible reason. Some
oral schools for the deaf would transfer some
very deaf, but very functioning, deaf child
to hearing schools. They feel these deaf children
are better off in the hearing world.
Were these oral schools right? Hard to tell.

Top stories about the deaf:

a discussion ensued about

Disasters affect everyone – fires, earthquakes,
weather, etc. Does not matter where in USA
the disaster takes place. This is where
Deaf Emergency Management comes in – make
sure friends, neighbors and family members
know where you are and how would they communicate
with you. And most important of all, make sure
of emails, texts and TV emergency captions
and interpreters during news conferences.

………..

Are Subtitles Illegal? Here’s What Court Says About Using Subtitles

This was what a newspaper headline said – not in USA
but in the Netherlands!

Something to do with copyright issues on these subtitled
movies.

……….

Assuming correctly or assuming wrongly?

‘Bachelor’ Contestant Abigail Heringer, who is deaf,
said she expects her children to be deaf.

DeafDigest editor knows genetics could be
tricky – hearing children born of multi-generational
deaf families, and deaf children born of hearing
parents with no deaf genes!

…………….

TV manufacturer Samsung, in a newspaper story,
admitted that some of their TV features are too
challenging for the deaf to locate, both on the
remote and on the screen!

………………

A children’s book about a deaf character
is out on the market. The name of the book
is Boy and it involves a deaf boy who has
problems communicating with his hearing
neighbors – but when an enemy group tried
to attack the village, he was able to
communicate with the enemy, bringing
peace to the village. As a result, the
happy neighbors began to learn sign
language to communicate with him!

SIGN LANGUAGE AT THE AMERICAN STOCK EXCHANGE
For many years, the brokers at the American Stock
Exchange used special sign language to communicate
buy and sell orders with each other. Sign language
is no longer used because of computers.
Many years ago, two Coda brokers worked at the
American Stock Exchange. One day they used ASL to
chat with each other on the trading floor for a
few minutes.
The American Stock Exchange managers were upset
about it, and these two Coda brokers were told
never again to use ASL on the trading floor.
These managers were afraid that other brokers
would think the Codas were using ASL as a code to
hide their buy and sell instructions!
American Stock Exchange is no more. It was
purchased by New York Stock Exchange and the
name was changed.

DEAF MEET HEARING, ALWAYS THE SAME COMMENT
It never fails that when a hearing person meets a
deaf person for the first time, he would tell the
deaf person that he may either:

– have a family member that is deaf
– have a neighbor that is deaf
– played football in high school with a deaf teammate
– had a childhood deaf friend
– etc
– etc

Almost never fails!

Top stories about the deaf:

A writer said the boundary between the deaf
and the hearing is invisible.

It is not surprising inasmuch as deafness
is an invisible disability.

………..

Zoom participants do not always follow
the #1 rule. It is the same rule that
participants need to follow during
conference room discussions – must
raise hands and to speak one at a time.
A deaf participant made this comment
in a newspaper story.

……….

Did Beethoven use wrong music tempo
with his most famous compositions?
This is what one Beethoven critic
is saying as the reason the music
is hard to follow.

…………….

The deaf and the disabled are asking Ohio
legislators to remove offensive words
in the state lawbooks. An example is
removing the hated “deaf and dumb”
phrase.

NEWSPAPER REPORTERS ALWAYS WRONG ABOUT HEARING LOSS
We often read in the newspapers such as “80 percent
hearing loss” or “50 percent hearing loss” etc.
This is not correct. No such a thing as a hearing
loss in percentages.
Hearing loss is measured in decibels, not in
percentages.
We almost never read in the newspapers “80dB
hearing loss” or “50dB hearing loss” etc.

INTERPRETING AT CHURCH SERVICES
Many deaf people go to hearing churches. Some
churches have interpreters. Some other churches
do not have interpreters.
Many churches are not rich; they cannot afford
to pay for certified interpreters. They are always
asking for volunteer interpreters.
Which is better – drive at a long distance to
attend a Deaf Church or to go to a hearing church
near your home?
You will have to decide which is best!

true story. A deaf person moved to a

The staff members all took sign language classes

This same senior citizens home has a deaf housekeeper.

SCARED OF LEGAL INTERPRETING
There are some interpreters that are scared to
do legal interpreting – in the court room, or in the
attorney’s office or in the police station.
Reasons are that:

– a deaf person may not understand legal words

– the interpreter may not know how to interpret legal words

– if an interpreter makes an error that is overlooked, the
deaf person may suffer

This is why there are workshops on legal interpreting.
