Top stories about the deaf:

Artist Henry Raeburn (1756–1823)not deaf, painted
a “Boy and Rabbit” portrait. The boy in the picture
was deaf. This painting will be exhibited in
Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum, Glascow,
Scotland for about six months.

University College London has always required
all students to take a foreign language course.
British Sign Language has now been accepted
as a foreign college requirement.

Vint Cerf, who is hard of hearing and considered
one of the Fathers of the Internet, is promoting
the InTheLimeLight Video Contest for Individuals with Disabilities. He is currently a special
advisor with Google.

The U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission
filed a lawsuit against Cutter Mazda of Honolulu
for discriminating against a deaf applicant seeking
employment with this automobile chain.

Taylor Swift is currently involved in a nasty
lawsuit. But she actually is not that nasty,
witness being victimized by a money-donation
prank that involved Willie Ross School for the Deaf. Once she realized it was a prank
several year ago, she reached out the school
and made a sizable donation!

This week’s ASL video in youtube

FIGHTING OR PLAYING?
We often see dogs rough it up with each other. Are they
fighting or playing? Hint – look at dog’s tails and jaws.

We often see hearing people “rough” with each other.
Are they fighting or playing? Hearing people can tell by
listening to their voices – angry voice or playful
voice.

We, the deaf, often cannot tell if it is playing or
fighting!

HIRING A CONSULTANT IN A MOVIE FOR NOTHING

From time to time Hollywood people hire Deaf Consultant

to work with directors and producers in a big filming
that involves a deaf actor.

And sometimes hiring the consultant is a waste of time
and waste of money.

Why? Because when filming is finished, the film editors
may cut out scenes that involve deaf actors!

COMMENTS FROM A CART OPERATOR – continuing series

The National Court Reporters Association (NCRA) is the organization that represents judicial reporters and broadcast and CART captioners across the country. Members of NCRA have been meeting at the Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada, from August 10th through the 13th. The theme for the 2017 Annual Convention and Exposition is “Magic at your Fingertips!”

The largest annual gathering of court reporters, realtime captioners, scopists, legal videographers, trial presenters, and other legal services professionals, the convention and expo offers a wide range of continuing education seminars and social events. Highlights include the installation of NCRA’s 2017-2018 Board of Directors, the winner of the Distinguished Service Award, the results of the national speed and realtime contests, the announcement of scholarship and grant recipients, and top-notch speakers addressing the topics and issues relevant to today’s court reporters, captioners, legal videographers, students, and school officials.

The schedule is jam-packed with educational sessions, the latest in new products and services showcased on the Expo Hall floor, and an array of networking opportunities that cannot be found anywhere else. There are also specialized programs for students and instructors, as well as a two-day Certified Realtime Captioner Workshop.

News of the Week – Looking Back 10 Years Ago:

Kim Robinson, who is deaf, is campaigning
for a seat on the Nelson Marlborough District
Health Board, which is in Marlborough,
New Zealand.
He stands a chance of winning the election.
It is not because he is a polished politician,
nor because he is extremely knowledgeable on
health-related issues.
It may be because he is the only candidate
to have signed up for that seat! Election
officials expected about 10-12 candidates
to sign up. Yet, none of them did, except
for Kim.
Pretty much reminds DeafDigest editor
of a deaf man who won the election for a
minor office only because he was the
only candidate! It took place about
30 years ago.

News of the Week – Looking Back 5 Years Ago:

At the Olympics in London, it was reported that several
deaf individuals were hired as security guards, especially
in the Tower of London area.
