This just in –
Jane K. Fernandes, who is deaf, will be stepping down
in 2021 as president of Guilford College (NC) and move
to a faculty position. In 2006, The Gallaudet board of
trustees chose her to become the next president. The
choice was so unpopular on the campus, that it led to
the second student revolt that forced the board to
rescind her appointment and instead, appoint Bob
Davila as the replacement president.
……….

This week’s ASL video in youtube
TALE OF TWO BIG HOTEL CHAINS
DeafDigest editor and wife traveled to New York
and Massachusetts and stayed at hotels under a big
national chain.
The hotel in Massachusetts showed no captions on
TV sets in the lobby. The hotel in New York showed
captions on all TV sets in the lobby.
Does Massachusetts hotel general manager have
bad attitude or is lazy to turn on captions?

Lip reading tale
A sister in law is having a new home built. There was
white plastic on the lot.
Her deaf sister-in-law asked what was the plastic for.
The deaf woman thought her hearing sister in law said:
It is fiber barrier
The hearing sister in law actually said:
It is vapor barrier

This week’s ASL video in youtube
WHY DEAF AVOID DEAF?
Why do many deaf people avoid the deaf?
Hard to say because if you ask them they won’t
admit they avoid the deaf.
Possible reasons – refuse to learn ASL; belief
they are better than deaf; parents told them to
avoid deaf; they hear better because of CI or
hearing aid and can chat with hearing; ashamed
of deafness, etc.
Good or bad?
Hard to say.

COMMENTS FROM A CART OPERATOR – continuing series
As we are reading through captioning errors, we should be aware that
sometimes the ending of the word is missing or that an additional ending
might be added. These may be the easiest errors to read through. Many
times these are simply a matter of plurals being incorrect.
Here are some samples of this type of error:
“All of the others things were done.”
“The store were open after 9:00 p.m.”
“The order were processed.”
“The bids is submitted.”
These should read as follows:
“All of the other things were done.”
“The stores were open after 9:00 p.m.”
“The orders were processed.”
“The bid is submitted.”
