– What the best stories are saying about the deaf?

Possibly for the benefit of some Deaf-blind people
is the artificial retina. A story in a British
newspaper was written up regarding the artificial
retina. The European Union is studying it to see if
it would be allowed to be marketed on the continent.
It works with a tiny video camera and transmitter
and wireless computer hidden in a pair of eyeglasses.
It may work with some Deaf-blind but not all of them.

Julie Rems-Smario, the director of DeafHope, a program
in Oakland, CA which provides services for abused
deaf women, has been inducted into the Alameda County Women’s Hall of Fame. She founded DeafHope in 2003
but her career on behalf of deaf women started in
1990. DeafHope currently serves the adjoining counties
in the Bay Area.

– Very Hot News

This just in – Jaromir Ruda, the chairperson of the cancelled
Winter Deaflympics, has been arrested by the Slovakian police
just as when he was trying to cross the border that separated
Hungary from Slovakia. More details are forthcoming

– Very Hot News

Who is Mark Dolley? The Deaflympics governing body has hired
Mark Dolley to be the CEO. He replaces Tiffany Granfors, who will
be moving on to new position outside of deafsports field.

A google search on Dolley’s background provided scant information,
except that he was employed by the International Olympic
Committee (IOC). He was recommended by a sports headhunting firm
for the top position with the Deaflympics group.

Is he good for us or bad for us? DeafDigest assumes he
is not deaf. Well, with his IOC connections, perhaps he could
find ways to get funding. IOC is filthy rich, but notorious for
not sharing its wealth with the Deaflympics.

The bad? Who knows – he may just gently steer or nudge us
towards the Paralympics group, which is what we do not want.
Because of its visible affiliation with the IOC, the Paralympics
group is, by far, much stronger than the Deaflympics group.

And as a side effect, we, the Americans, have lost our vital
pipeline to the Deaflympics group. Jerald Jordan, for so many
years, and then Donalda Ammons and then Tiffany Granfors, were
Americans, and they’ve always had our interests so dear to their
hearts while working for the Deaflympics group. Not any more
because Dolley is a Briton.

We will just wait and see.

Officials in Zimbabwe did something great that we will
never find in USA! The Miss Deaf Zimbabwe pageant winner
will become Miss Tourism Deaf, and become ambassadors
of their nation. Could we imagine that Miss Deaf America
would represent USA Tourism Board and become Miss USA
Tourism Deaf? No way!

– Friday February 18th

Rick Macomber, the professional standardbred
driver, who is deaf, reached a career landmark,
winning his 2,000th win.

Story is posted on:
http://xwebapp.ustrotting.com/absolutenm/templates/?a=41183&z=1

If you do not know what standardbred racing is, the
picture in the story is worth a thousand words

He is the only Gallaudet graduate with a career as a
professional athlete

– Saturday February 19th

Will we have Winter Deaflympics in 2012 to replace the
cancelled events at Slovakia? There is talk that
Russia and Ukraine both have shown interest in hosting
the Deaflympics even on one year’s notice!

Deaf Miscellaneous stuff:

Do late-deafened adults risk Alzheimer’s disease and

KICKING OUT THE DEAF GAMBLERS
Many Americans love to gamble. Many deaf people also
love to gamble. There are many deaf poker tournaments
everywhere.
For many years the annual national deaf basketball
tournament, run by American Athletic Association
of the Deaf (AAAD) attracted well known deaf
gamblers. They liked to place bets on their favorite
deaf teams.
Not any more. The AAAD is also no more, replaced
by USA Deaf Basketball Association (USADB). And the
USADB officers are strict. Anyone caught gambling
on tournament games will be kicked out of the gym!

A DEAF GROUP WANTED TO FIGHT IN WORLD WAR I

During the World War I (1917-1918), past President
Theodore Roosevelt, thought the deaf can fight in the
war.
He wanted to form again a group called the Rough Riders.
This past group fought in the Spanish-American War
(1898). He asked for deaf volunteers to join the new
Rough Riders.
Many deaf volunteers signed up for the new Rough
Riders group, and were ready to fight in World
War I.
President Woodrow Wilson turned down Roosevelt’s
idea!

ANOTHER LOU FERRIGNO TALE
As many of us know, Lou Ferrigno is deaf and was a champion
body builder, in addition to having some acting roles on TV,
especially the Hulk.
Why did he retire from body building while he was in his
prime and could have continued winning championships for the
next 10-15 years?
Because he was tempted to try acting as a new career. He said:

I had a lot of fun doing the Hulk series because it gave me the chance to meet a lot of people.

THE INTERPRETER’S MINIMUM CHARGES
In USA, interpreters normally charge a minimum of two
hours. This is the standard billing procedure among
interpreting agencies.
In Great Britain, it is three hours minimum charge!

DEAF PRISONERS IN CANADA
A prison is a dreary place to live, no matter if the
inmate is deaf or hearing.
We have heard of tales of deaf prisoners complaining about
lack of accommodations for them (interpreters, captions, etc)
in American prisons.
It pretty much is the same with prisons in Canada. A story
ran in one of the newspapers about the deaf Canadian prisoners.
Jim Roots, executive director of the Canadian Association of the Deaf, said:

Corrections try to accommodate special needs of deaf offenders, but a lack of dedicated resources means they are frequently
shut out

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!
