Schools for the deaf athletic teams routinely schedule
games with other schools for the deaf. Almost all of these
schools belong to regional deaf schools athletic conferences.

The Great Plains Schools for the Deaf (GPSD) is one such

most far flung conference - with schools as far west
as New Mexico School for the Deaf, as far southwest as
Oklahoma School for the Deaf and as far north central
as Minnesota and Wisconsin schools. Announcement was made this
week of admitting one more school into the conference -
Arkansas School for the Deaf. GPSD conducts tournaments

Deaf Miscellaneous stuff:

A Mansfield, Ohio newspaper ran a piece regarding religious
services not really serving the needs of the deaf and the
hard of hearing. It questioned the religious groups' efforts
to welcome the deaf while denying them interpreting services

MARLEE MATLIN IN "MY DEAF FAMILY"
   Marlee Matlin wanted "My Deaf Family" to be on
a reality TV show. All TV producers turned her down.
   As a result, she is producing this show on Youtube.
Why did the TV producers turn it down?
   The TV producers were afraid that hearing people
would not like captions and too much signing.
   DeafDigest is surprised - because Marlee is a powerful
and well known person in Hollywood and many TV producers
listen to her. It is just that a deaf reality show
was very different from hearing reality shows, and
the TV producers were scared of it.

http://deafdigest.com/videos/matlinyoutube/

(for your convenience, video links are posted on top
of each DeafDigest edition)

A THANKFUL CODA
   Do we have Codas that credit their success to being
the offspring of the deaf?
   There is one - Troy Day, Austin, Texas. Because his
father was a self-employed auto mechanic, the son
grew up making telephone calls asking for car parts.
   While Troy has become a sheriff's deputy, his hobby
(custom cars) became a side business with two partners.
   If the deaf dad was not into cars, Troy would have
been into something else.

AN OPERATION WITH A GLITCH
   A newspaper in Malta ran a story of its first
CI operation - but tempered it with the comment
that it had a glitch.
   A glitch? The story said that the CI did not work
after it was implanted, forcing the surgeon to replace
the "broken" CI.
   We are always reading these "successful" CI
operation stories in the newspapers but never one
that would mention a glitch!
   We also do not routinely read stories of routine
medical operations in the newspapers, much less these
"failed" operations.
   Perhaps the Malta newspaper was honest about the
glitch in this operation.

A COMMENT THAT MAKES NO SENSE
   As you all know, DeafDigest editor surfs every day
on the web, always looking for deaf-related news or
deaf-related tidbits.
   Here is one, not edited:

the man who was earnest to be introduced to a distinguished
deaf woman, but when he was presented, and one end of her
ear trumpet was put into his hand, had nothing to say. 

   How would one interpret this tale? Open to many different
interpretations - all of them nonsensical !

MENTAL HEALTH NEEDS AND THE DEAF
   A past administrator of educational programs for the
deaf made this comment regarding mental health needs
of the deaf:

The psychiatrists do not know if the things the clients
said are the interpreters' interpretation of the situation
or if the response is a cultural factor within the deaf
community

A STRANGE CASE OF DEAFNESS
   Some causes of deafness are common; some other
causes are not common.
   One such deafness case is not common. A newspaper
story recently described a subject's deafness.
   It said:

he is not deaf, but his hearing is delayed. The sounds
he hears echo back and forth, just like being in an
echo chamber

LARRY THE CABLE GUY
   Do we like Daniel Lawrence Whitney, who is better known as
the Larry the Cable Guy?
   He is part of the Blue Collar Comedy Tour that is winning
popularity everywhere.
   Why is DeafDigest asking if we like him? Because, in a
newspaper story, it said:

He offers a gross imitation of the way deaf people talk

   Many deaf people cannot speak. That is understood.
And to make fun of deaf people that cannot speak well
is a serious no-no.
   And therefore, DeafDigest detests him.

OUR ORGANIZATIONS SERVING THE DEAF AND HARD OF HEARING
   We have many, many organizations, both national and
local, that serve deaf and hard of hearing people.
   One such organization is:

National Association of the Deaf

Hot DeafNews boring, but important!

The Northern Alberta Institute of Technology (NAIT) in Edmonton,
Alberta, wanted to shut down the captioning and court reporting
diploma program, which was of benefit to the deaf community.

The shut down was to save money because of NAIT's budget
shortfall.

The deaf community screamed and NAIT backed off. Still, one
more obstacle remains. A special committee will review these
programs and come up with a decision by end of the year.

that Obama will select, and that Congress will concur,
a new nominee to replace the retiring Stevens, that
is sensitive to the needs of the deaf

.....

DeafHistory - Looking Back:

Year 1885 - a new soccer stadium was built in Doncaster,
United Kingdom. It was named Deaf and Dumb Ground,
because it was located next to the school for the deaf.
A year later the name was changed to the Intake Ground.

.....

Deaf and the Money:

The only reason why the blind get an extra standard deduction
and the deaf don’t is because the blind lobby was more effective
in convincing those in Congress to give them a break.

said the msn moneycentral web site

.....

DeafNumbers of the Week:

The Gallaudet Research Center released these stats -

two to four out of every 1,000 Americans are functionally deaf

one out of every 1,000 Americans become deaf before the age of 18

nine to 22 out of every 1,000 Americans have severe hearing
impairment
