- What the best stories are saying about the deaf?

Deaf people of Turkey are complaining that the government
is not responsive to their needs, especially interpreters.
Said an advocate "I am deaf, and not a person with
obstacles in life."


A successful businesswoman struggled for 20 years without
realizing she was deaf! Lucy Short, who operates a fashion
clothing business in England, thought she was deaf in one
year and also thought her hearing aid made her "fully
hearing". Much to her shock, she was wrong, especially
after arguing with her boy friend over miscommunication
issues. She has since then made public with her hearing
loss.



- Very Hot News

In Missouri, irate complaints aimed at state legislators
are beginning to show results. The deaf people were angry
over low priority given to the Mental Health services.
The House reps have agreed to establish a committee to
oversee the needs of the disabled, the deaf included.
And that the mental health programs is one of the issues
the committee members will address.



- Thursday January 27th

In England, young writers dream of being selected to the
Royal Court's Young Writers Program. It is where young
writers learn how to become serious writers (novels, plays,
etc). Aliya Gulamani, a young deaf person, that aspires
to become a playwright, was selected to this elite group.



- Friday January 28th

Catharine McNally, a young deaf woman, equally fluent in
ASL, Cued Speech and oral, is the proud winner of the
Paul G. Hearne Leadership Award by the American Association 
of People with Disabilities. She owns Keen Guides, which
feeds mobile devices with detailed tours of tourist sites 
and public facilities.

Super Bowl comes up next weekend. There will be many
deaf Super Bowl parties everywhere in USA. And many
parties are served with all types of food. The USDA
wants to make sure the food you eat is safe. The
following is a video that is in both ASL and in
captions:

AMERICAN AND BRITISH NEWSPAPERS
   DeafDigest editor looks for deaf news in newspapers
every day. There have been many, many, many deaf news
in British newspapers, but few deaf news in USA
newspapers.
   Why? Is it because British newspapers like to write
about the deaf while American newspapers don't?
   No. More and more American newspapers go out of
business; many American newspaper reporters are
laid off. As a result, fewer and fewer American deaf
stories.
   British newspapers are different

IMPORTANT DEAF JOBS AWAY FROM HOME
   Many years ago deaf people worked at important
jobs in their home towns.
   Times have changed. We have seen some deaf school
superintendents live maybe 500 or 1000 miles from
their schools. They fly home every weekend. Same
thing with some deaf CEOs of deaf service agencies.
   DeafDigest thinks this is not good. It is important
that the local deaf community know who the deaf
superintendent or the deaf CEO is. But if they
go home every weekend, then they are strangers to
the Deaf Community

A DEAF ARCHAEOLOGIST
   We know this phrase - that the deaf people can do
anything except to hear - but do we have deaf
archaeologists?
   There is one, according to a quick web search.
Theresa Goel, who was honored in 1970 for her
work in that field.
   More information on her seems to be lacking.

GALLAUDET'S BLOWN FORTUNE
   Gallaudet blew a fortune and became "broke."
No, no, not Gallaudet University, but that of
Elisha Gallaudet.
   Elisha was a famous engraver of government 
currency, the money people use to buy and spend 
on things.
   He died as a young man in the 18th century at
the age of 51.
   He died before papers could be drawn up to
earn money on his engraving work for the
federal government.
   Yes, Elisha is part of the famous Gallaudet
Family lineage (Thomas Hopkins Gallaudet, Edward
Miner Gallaudet and actor John Gallaudet, etc).
   Said a current Gallaudet family member:

I'm his first cousin 6 times removed. I have tried 
to get together with some Gallaudet family members 
but haven't connected yet



ITALIAN ROLL AT SUBWAY SANDWICH SHOP
   In bigger American cities, hearing immigrants,
those still struggling with English, work behind
the counter at the Subway Sandwich outlets.
   Normally it would be a challenge for a deaf
patron to communicate with an English-challenged
immigrant.
   When DeafDigest editor comes in to order a
sub, he always asks for Italian roll; much
easier to pronounce it as opposed to other
different rolls!

32nd World's Largest Silent Weekend for Interpreters, ITP and ASL Teachers
and Students June 23-26, 2011 in Orlando, Florida

We are scheduled yearly until at least 2020 and have over 120 hours
of classes for all levels.  Last two years, we had 1,100 people attend and
have space for 2,000 people with the entire conference floor for our exclusive
use.
    
The Florida Hotel offers
free parking (some conferences charge up to $36 per day) and free in-room
internet (some hotels charge $12.95 per day).   The huge Florida Mall has an
enormous food court offering you complete meals for as little as $5.99
(some conference hotels charge $8 just for a hot dog).
    
Frequent presenters include Peter Cook, Crom Saunders, Trix Bruce,
Faith Powell, Shannon Simon, and almost 20 other highly regarded
presenters.  Last year, the lowest rated presenters were only 0.22 point
behind the highest rated ones showing the across-the-board equality in
excellent quality of instructors.
    
For the advanced group, there will be language-focused and
interpreting-focused CEU classes.

There should be two dozen exhibitors with a huge variety of items
available.  With many classes having breaks hourly, there will be an
exciting and dynamic all-day flow of participants in the exhibit area.
    
The decadent chocolate fountain refreshment will be offered again!

Rene Pellerin's corner: 


At this writing, I will be traveling alone for my next show!

A lot of preparation needs to be done before I fly.  It is not an
easy task.

Let's discuss money.

I need to organize various denominations bills to help identify which
bill is which.

You cannot count on total strangers to take the appropriate amount.

Here are some example of how Deaf-Blind and blind people handle
money.

Organize your wallet in dollar amounts from $1 to $20 in order.

For example, my wallet has a divider.  The first one is for $1 and $5
bills.

The second divider is for $10 and $20 bills.

Individuals who are totally blind tend to fold their bills in
specific ways help them identify.

Technology now can read money with voice or vibratory signals.

Stay tuned for my flight experiences.

Deaf College Bowl participating teams

at 2010 NAD Conference 

A warning - some questions are not deaf-related and are tough
to answer.


Round 2 - Question #8

Correct Answer = Three Points

Incorrect Answer = 0

Challenge = +6 or -6


Q. This comical Shakespearean character made an appearance in three 
of the Bard's plays: Henry IV, Part 1; Henry IV, Part 2; and The Merry 
Wives of Windsor.  He was also mentioned in Henry V when his death 
was announced.

A. Sir John Falstaff

...

Deaf Question of the Week:

Q. Since deaf people can do anything except to hear, it also
means deaf people can find any job, despite their deafness?

A. Yes and no. A deaf person cannot fly on commercial jets
which require constant radio communications with the tower.

All the deaf person needs is a break, somewhere.




send your questions to mailto:barry@deafdigest.com

the most interesting questions may be answered in future DeafDigest 
editions. Thank you.

....

Wish List of the Week:

that all deaf agencies, pushing legislation on deaf-related
bills will never hear this dreaded statement - session sine die

It is a Latin phrase which means "dropped the legislation
without any further discussion planned"

What this means that legislators refuse to listen to 
deaf-related bills and kill it with "session sine die"

We wish this never happens anywhere any time in the future

....

DeafHistory - Looking Back:

Year 1883 - Josh Tatum, a deaf con man, hoped to become
rich by fooling the shopkeepers. He dipped the nickels
in gold to make it look like five dollar gold coins.
He was caught and he never became a rich man!
