News of the Week

    The prestigious Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show
took place last week. One of the participating dogs
was handled by Pam Estes, the show's only dog trainer
that is deaf.
    When not training dogs, she teaches at Ohio
School for the Deaf at Columbus.

...

    Do stats tell the truth or lie? This concerns
the Current Population Survey that tries to count
how many disabled people are employed. And each
time we see the word disabled, it is always
as "deaf included."
    Anyway this such survey, sponsored by the
Department of Labor, to be more specific, the
Office of Disability Employment Policy.
    The web site showing the data is:
http://www.bls.gov/cps/cpsdisability.htm

    So, let us question if it is truthful or
if it is fibbing.

...

    We all know that deaf children communicate via
gesturing and then as they grow up, get more
proficient with their sign language.
    This is not surprising, yet we are reading
of a research by University of Chicago saying
that deaf children gesticulate first.
    Not quite sure why time, money and energy
is expended into a finding that we already
knew for sure?
    The Chicago report was posted in Science
Daily last week.

A DEAF FOSSIL
    Earth has many, many fossils. Were any of the
fossils deaf?
    There was one - a fossil of a bat that is
52 million years old.
    Bats are deaf. So, possibly this is the oldest
Deaf Fossil that we know about!

DEAF STUDIES OR DISABILITY STUDIES
    More colleges offer Disability Studies. Is that good
or bad for us?
    It is good because it helps hearing people understand
the needs of the disabled, the deaf included.
    It is bad because hearing people tend to ignore the
needs of the deaf while studying the needs of the
hearing disabled.
    Our deafness is invisible, and people don't know we
are deaf when they see us on the streets.


- for ASL News version, please click on:
http://www.deafdigest.com/studies.htm

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


OH, NO, NEVER MIND
    It is always when a hearing person says something
to a deaf person, and if the deaf person asks to
repeat what was said, the hearing person would say
"oh, never mind."
    Are we seeing the same thing with videophones?
There have been cases of a deaf person asking to chat
with another deaf person on video phone. And when the
other deaf person says he does not have it, then
the response is:

oh, never mind!

    Why?


ADA OR THE POWER OF THE ATTITUDE
    Which is better - ADA regulations by the book
or the Power of the Attitude?
    A retired owner of a car repair shop in Georgia
had this tale about his father, whose business
the son inherited:

I watched my father teach a deaf man how to rebuild
transmissions. My father did not know sign language.
But they communicated.

    This was during the 1950's and 1960's, years way
before ADA came into being.



NO FUN TO BE DEAF
    We, the deaf, are so used to being deaf that we
take it for granted and move on with our lives.
    Not that so for those who try to be deaf for 24 hours
by plugging in their ears and shutting out the sound.
    At the end of 24 hours, the student, taking part in a
class project, said:

Can't wait to get these plugs out of my ears and return 
to my normal hearing. I'm feeling very withdrawn



A PHILADELPHIA HOTEL INTERNET ISSUE
    DeafDigest editor checked into a hotel in Philadelphia
last week. The laptop would not work with the wireless
set up in the hotel room. A 800-number had to be called
to solve the wireless problem.
    The only problem is that the laptop had no
internet connection and it was not possible to make a
800 call.
    Yes, the hotel has a TTY - but who uses the TTY
these days?
    Fortunately, the problem was solved by a call from
a hearing person. But what if it was an all-deaf group?


IT IS A CODA THING
    DeafDigest editor bumped into a Coda he has known
for years.
    The Coda recently replied:

it is a Coda thing

    His response was to the question why he preferred
field interpreting as opposed to video phone
interpreting.
    He said he felt uncomfortable when being
"stared" down on the screen by deaf acquaintances
that chance on him on the video.


UNEMPLOYMENT AND THE DEAF
    DeafDigest worries that the bad economy has
impacted on the deaf employees everywhere.
    When business is bad, everyone gets laid off,
not just the deaf, but the hearing.
    Yet, there are still some jobs that can be
found - only if these job seekers are willing
to relocate.
    And when a deaf person is comfortable with his
status in the local deaf community, he is more
reluctant to pull up roots to seek employment.
    Which is better - steady employment or
status as a respected member of the deaf community?



A PUZZLING RESTAURANT REVIEW COMMENT, continued
    Last week's DeafDigest mentioned a puzzling
statement in a restaurant review in a British
newspaper.
    It said:

Don't take your deaf mother there

    Actually, it was a misprint. It was supposed to
be written as:

Don't take your dear mother there

    A British subscriber to DeafDigest pointed out the
misprint.
    We have been so accustomed to reading the word
death when it meant to be spelled as deaf.
    Perhaps the word dear is so much more pleasant
sounding than the word death!

WHAT IS THAT SUPPOSED TO MEAN?

A comment that says:

They didn't want me going deaf before I was supposed to


it may seem to mean that the hearing person expects to be deaf
some day, but did not want to be deaf prematurely!

Hot DeafNews boring, but important!
    Pop more vitamins into your body and you may continue
as a hearing person!
    This is what University of Florida researcher Colleen 
Le Prell is saying, while presenting papers at the
Association for Research in Otolaryngology conference
earlier in the week.
    She is saying that such pills, containing antioxidants,
vitamins C and E and the mineral magnesium is what may
be needed to prevent noise-induced and age-induced
deafness.

Question of the week:

Q. I am always reading in the newspapers about deafness
defined in percentages - as if the person is 70 percent
deaf. Is this the same thing as hearing loss in 70 dB?

A. No. There is no such a thing as deafness defined in
percentages. Decibels is the way to define degrees of
deafness. Percentages is something newspaper reporters
like to make up.
