– What the best stories are saying about the deaf?

Canada’s The Globe and Mail newspaper listed Boeing Canada Operations Ltd, of Winnipeg, as one
of the best diversity employers. It said that Boeing
hosted team focus group meetings with deaf employees
to understand the barriers they face in the workplace.

Andrea Sonnier won the Miss Capital City Pageant,
and her next step is the Miss Louisiana Pageant.
She is deaf and attends classes at Louisiana
State University. If she wins the state pageant,
then Miss America 2011 is the next step. She
has plans – to attend Gallaudet graduate school
and then a medical school.

– Very Hot News

We have deaf black women that are successful; a group
of deaf black women of Houston, Texas, gave a talk
at a panel that took place this week. The list includes
these women – Shirley Allen, Mary van Manen, Mary Perrodin, Rebbie Smith and Michelle Martin. Allen became the first
deaf black woman to earn a doctorate; Van Manen became the
first to graduate from a college in Mississippi; Perrodin
works with the deaf at a local high school and is going
for her second masters; Smith is a career employee at a federal agency; Martin leads a deaf religious group.

– Thursday February 24th

Jacob Ireri, a Gallaudet senior from Kenya, is one of the
eight finalists in the Philips Livable Cities Award competition.
He beat out 450 applicants from 29 nations just to make the
list of finalists. This contest, sponsored by Royal Philips Electronics, solicits ideas to improve the standard of
living of people that live in the cities.

– Friday February 25th

It was learned that the Van Asch Deaf Education Centre
building in Christchurch was damaged during the
earthquake earlier in the week

– Saturday February 26th

Regarding the 4201 group of schools in New York that are being
threatened by budget cuts, the Wall Street Journal pointed out:

There are no high-priced TV ad campaigns or legions of lobbyists to fight for about 1100 children who attend special schools for the deaf

This is correct and that effective lobbyists and effective
TV ads mean one thing – lot of money, which is what these
schools do not have, even if they all chip in for these
necessary funds.

…..

Deaf Miscellaneous stuff:

ACCESS News is a new program on Austin (Texas) PBS station
that will be aired once a month. It hopes to help the deaf of
Austin understand better what is going on in the world, as well
as to help the hearing understand the deaf better. This venture
was made possible by a grant from the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation Community Information Challenge.

REALLY DEAF OR FAKING DEAFNESS?
There are a few Codas that sign very smooth ASL,
and tell people they are deaf.
But many deaf people think they are hearing and
try to fool us as being deaf.
Why? Always a mystery.

THE CONFUSED WAITERS
It is not an easy job being a waiter at a busy
restaurant. Waiters are responsible for their own
tables. They are always looking at the tables to
see if patrons ask them for gestures – such
as more water, refill the drink, need fork,
want to pay check, etc.
When they serve ASL patrons, then their signs
could be confusing. Sometimes the waiter would
come to them thinking a deaf person asked him
for something.
From time to time DeafDigest editor, signing
in ASL, would have waiters come to him, thinking
he wanted something.
Can be confusing!

A CI AND A DEAF CAT
Why do deaf people observe things better with their
eyes as compared to hearing people?
A deaf cat may provide the answer! A team of
researchers at University of Western Ontario have
researched the cats to see how these felines observe
stuff.
These researchers are saying that learning how
cats observe may help adults with CI later on.

AT THE PEABODY ESSEX MUSEUM
The Peabody Essex Museum is located in Salem,
Massachusetts.
Currently this museum features pieces of art by
Hendrick Avercamp, a Dutch artist of the seventeenth
century.
This artist is deaf and his works have been posthumously
acclaimed everywhere.

DEAFNESS AND THE QUALITY OF LIFE
A newspaper story was headlined:

Hearing loss “impacts life quality”

Does it? Or does it not? Depends. If we
adapt very well to our deafness and have jobs,
homes, money, social life, then quality of life should be fine.
If we have problems dealing with deafness
and it impacts on jobs, homes, money, social
life, then quality of life may be in question.
Keep in mind, there are many, many hearing
people that do not have a good quality of life.

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!

See www.DrSign.com for more information and for registration plus a video
clip of last year’s Silent Weekend.

Hot DeafNews boring, but important!

Two-for-one anti-deafness pills?

Yes, Washington University School of Medicine
researchers are saying. While each pill stands

This announcement was made in a recent school

Rene Pellerin’s corner: 

Having trouble writing checks?  Can’t see lines anymore? 

Yes that’s me!  I cannot see fine thin lines to fill in the blanks on my checkbook!

When I went to the bank to create a new checking account for
my storytelling business, I asked if they made large print checks.   The answer was YES!

Later,  I received my new large print checkbooks in the mail.

They were awesome:  large, bold print and great contrast.

When I write check, I feel like I am giving away prizes from
Publishers Clearing House Sweepstakes!

Deaf Question of the Week:

Q. Why is the Inuit Sign Language (ISL) of interest to people
in the legal field?

A. Because this language may possibly not be as sophisticated
as compared with other complex sign languages. And that it is
hard to translate some legal questions into ISL. And also
such words like “choice” does not have a ISL translation!

send your questions to mailto:barry@deafdigest.com

the most interesting questions may be answered in future DeafDigest editions. Thank you.

…..

Wish List of the Week:

That either Russia or Ukraine would definitely host the
2012 Winter Deaflympics to give the disappointed participants a second chance to compete.

…..

DeafHistory – Looking Back:

Year 1977 – as encouraged and pushed by the National
Center for Law and the Deaf, eight deaf and hard of
hearing individuals enrolled in law schools. DeafDigest
believes that out of the group of 8, only one is still
in the law profession.

…..

Deaf and the Money:

1,700,000 Euros

supposedly embezzled by Jaromír Ruda that was earmarked for
the now-cancelled Winter Deafympics. Rudy has since then been
arrested by the Slovakia police.

…..

DeafNumbers of the Week:

80 percent of deaf/hard of hearing live in third world nations
