- Dedication

DeafDigest dedicates this edition to Brenda 
Egnatovitch Schooley who departed us last week.

A Gallaudet graduate and a former librarian at a
college in the Philadelphia area, she also managed
a family-owned custard concessions business in
Atlantic City, NJ which continued for many
years. This stand had a reputation for serving
one of the most delicious custards around.



- Hot Newspaper stories during the week:

Emily Howlett, a promising deaf British performer
http://deafdigest.com/emilyhowlett/

The Lincoln statue myth (or fact)
http://deafdigest.com/rebeccasheir/


- Very Hot News

The director position at North Carolina School
for the Deaf is now vacant. The latest director
was removed from the post by the state.


- Sunday August 15th

The overzealous security guard who brutally tackled
a suspected deaf shoplifter in a Los Angeles shopping
mall, was suspended. His tackle was videotaped and
distributed all over the world, much to the embarrassment
of all particulars involved




- Monday August 16th

The Western Pennsylvania School for the Deaf has
purchased Lourdesmont school campus, while at the
same time the state was selling the Scranton school 
campus.

The move to the new campus has already began.



- Tuesday August 17th

Crafton Hills College was scolded by the California 
Department of Education for firing a sign language
teacher because of budgetary concerns.



- Wednesday August 18th

DeafDigest was not surprised by the announcement that
one of every five teens would suffer a hearing loss.

Rarely would we find a teen walking by without listening
to loud music.

Will be interesting to see if this would have an impact 
on our national deaf-related organizations in the years
to come.



(Thursday-Saturday Hot Deaf News will be in the Gold edition)

Deaf Miscellaneous stuff:

If the Video Systems Committee of the Consumer Electronics 
Association has its way, we, the deaf, will be enjoying
full captioned videos at some time in the near future.

This committee was just formed to achieve this such task.
Forming a committee is one thing; getting providers to
comply is another thing - and that is a huge gap to
bridge.

HEAD SHAKE TO SAY NO; HEAD SHAKE TO SAY YES
    If you are deaf and you are touring Bulgaria.
Just be very careful if you ask hearing Bulgarians
for map directions.
    If they shake their head up and down, you will
think they are saying - yes. In Bulgaria, it is
the opposite, it means - no.
    Same thing if they shake their head from one
side to other side, you may think they are saying
- no. In Bulgaria it means - yes.
    During the 1993 Deaflympics at Sofia, Bulgaria,
many deaf tourists got confused when asking for
directions.

THE WAY TO NAME A SCHOOL FOR THE DEAF
    Willie Ross School for the Deaf in Longmeadow,
MA, is an up and coming school in the New England
region.
    It only has been around since 1967, and the
original name was:

Deaf Children Greater Springfield Parents Association

    It was supposed to be named Hope School but for
some reason it was never used as a name.
    How was it named Willie Ross School for the Deaf
is an interesting tale.
    It was named after a deaf child, who only attended
that school perhaps just for a couple of years.
    Willie Ross' parents was one of the founders
of the school, but they moved to California while
Willie was just 6 years old.
    The other (grateful) parents wanted to recognize
the Ross parents for helping found the school and so
named the school after their son!
    Though in California, the Ross parents did not forget
their mission - and founded The Willie Ross Foundation
which helps provide services for adult deaf clients.
    There is a picture of Willie as a 3-year old child
in the school reception area.
    Willie himself would be somewhere in his mid-forties
right now. And the school started as oral but now promotes
both sign language and speech.

STILL EMPLOYED IN THIS SCARY ECONOMY
    A deaf engineer told DeafDigest editor about
5-6 months ago that he was worried about his employment.
His engineering company has been laying off people left
and right.
    Following up on the deaf engineer this week, his 
response was:

I am still with my company. But I travel more to work
sites. And in the last three months I have gone through
six bosses; five of them were laid off.

    It is a good trade off; to travel more but to remain
employed!



A DEAF FARMER IN THE METRO WASHINGTON, DC AREA
    Do we have deaf farmers in the metro Washington, DC
area, where agricultural land is becoming more scarce.
    There was one about 50 years ago in the Northern
Virginia area. And DeafDigest editor just learned of a
deaf farmer, specializing in crops, that owns his land
in a Maryland small Maryland town, about 40 miles from
Washington, DC.
    This deaf farmer graduated from a school for the
deaf, but immediately became a farmer, and did not
mingle with the deaf at any of the social events.
    And he has become a wealthy man, not because of
crop farming but because of sale of land. The state
built a new highway which cut his land in half. He
sold one part of the land to a developer and kept
the other hand for himself.


DEAF ART AND HEARING ART
    There was a discussion over the internet regarding
artists' perspectives based on personal experiences
and personal preferences.
    While deafness was not mentioned in the discussion,
DeafDigest feels that Deaf Artists have a different
perspective as opposed to Hearing Artists.
    This has nothing to do with skill in art, just that
the painting on the canvas reflects the artist's
perspective.
    This is why we have Deaf Art paintings exhibited by
Deaf Artists everywhere in the world.

COMMENTS FROM A CART OPERATOR - continuing series

When I speak to people about captioning, I find that many people
still do not understand the difference between offline and realtime
captioning.  They think a captioner is a captioner and that all
captioners do the same thing. 

There is a big difference between offline and realtime captioners. 
They use totally different skills to complete their assignments.

Offline captioning is also called post-production captioning.  This
is the process of adding captioning to a prerecorded show.  Realtime
captioning is also called online captioning or live captioning.  This
captioning is performed "live" as an event is actually happening.

There are a number of factors that add to the confusion about
captioners.  One of those factors is that many companies provide both
offline and realtime captioning, but usually different people are
performing these tasks. 

Another factor that is causing confusion is that sometimes people are
adding realtime captions to programs that have been prerecorded. 
Unfortunately, this is not an ideal situation.  Some people may find
it more cost effective, but it is not fair to the caption viewers who
must tolerate the realtime mistakes because a captioner did not have
a chance to go back and fix any errors that were made in realtime.  



A TELEPHONE AMPLIFIER
    A web site posted this comment:

My grandmother is pretty much deaf. You have to yell to get her to
understand anything you are saying and if she calls to talk to you 
on the phone, you can count on her not understanding half the 
conversation.

    DeafDigest is quite not sure why the late-deafened grandmother
was not using an amplifier.
    Such telephone amplifiers are capable of boosting voice
conversations up to 100 times the normal volume.
    Either the grandmother was clueless as to the products on the
market designed to help the late-deafened - or - she was too
proud to use products that would indicate her deafness!

Hot DeafNews boring, but important!

University of Washington engineers are working on
sign language recognition software that would work on
deaf paging devices.

Well, there are as many as half dozen signs for 
the sport that we, the Americans, love - football.

Or even of the word "computer" there are still 
half dozen signs.

Would that software capture it all?

Do not know.

.....

The Deaf and the Law:

Nine Philadelphia firefighters sued a siren manufacturer,
claiming they became deaf because of excessive siren noise.

The jury would not agree with these firefighters.

......

The Captioning Blunder of the Week:

The thunderstorm was sphere (severe)

....

News of the Week - Looking Back 10 Years Ago:


    A radio talk show on July 31st in Albuquerque, NM has upset
the deaf community. The commentator felt that the captioning
lawsuit filed by the deaf of Oregon was groundless. He felt the
captions on the screen would distract the hearing audience - and
he also made snide remarks putting down the deaf in general.

......

News of the Week - Looking Back 5 Years Ago:

    A school administrator wearing a CI and racing cars
as a hobby in Watsonville, California?
    This an interesting hobby of Terry McHenry, the
deputy superintendent for the Pajaro Valley Unified School
District. He races cars at the Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca.
Why racing? It is a hobby that helps him relax.
    And why the CI? It was his love for his hobby that
helped make him deaf (excessive engine noise)!


....

Deaf Apocalypse of the Week:

A certain state does not have a Deaf Teacher Training program
in any of its colleges. As a result, the superintendent of the
state school for the deaf is forced to go out of state to
recruit teachers for the school.

And some of these out of state programs do not emphasize ASL.

Said the superintendent:

It makes recruiting teachers a major challenge

......

A Lipreading Problem: What did that person say?


- the person said:
you need to see a notary public to get papers signed

- you thought the person said:
you need to see a notographer

You are puzzled at the word notographer since it
does not exist in the dictionary




if you have lipreading tales, please share these with
mailto:barry@deafdigest.com

.......

A Vocational Rehabilitation counselor's great news:

 
Your ex-client publicly makes a fool out of himself at 
a deaf community event and as a result, you are publicly
vindicated from wrong doing on your job the same way 
Coach Pitino was vindicated when that women who tried to 
steal from him was found criminally guilty.
