– What the best stories are saying about the deaf?

(below is not the best story – but the worst story)

A research team at RIT came up with the conclusion
that deaf and hard of hearing children suffer a
higher rate of mistreatment as opposed to hearing
children

(below is not really deaf-related but could be)

Mike Rowe, the host of cable TV’s program “”Dirty Jobs”
wants to tell people that blue collar jobs are great
(electricians, bricklayers, plumbers, welders, miners,
etc). Many years ago deaf schools had strong vocational
programs, but not any more these days. Years ago
graduates from deaf schools, with strong vocational
training, were able to get jobs in these vocational
fields.

– Very Hot News

Two stories about NTID.

The short story is that a new web site has been launched. It is at:
http://www.ntid.rit.edu

The long story is that RIT has opened a center – the American Sign Language & Deaf Studies Community Center new student center, which is in the middle of its sprawling 1,300 acre, 237-building campus.
It is convenient location because the NTID classes and dorm is
on one side of the campus and another building that has
a high number of deaf students is on the other side.
And while NTID is just one of RIT’s eight colleges, the deaf influence is very strong on the campus. Just about every other RIT hearing student has an interaction with the deaf one way or other (classes, sports, intramurals, Greek societies, student clubs, campus events, social life, etc)

– Thursday January 20th

better late than never, it was discovered that the
October 2010 edition of the “Washingtonian” magazine
selected Vint Cerf as one of the 45 individuals that
have shaped Washington, DC (1965-2010). Vint, who
is hard of hearing, but functions as a hearing
person, is the Co-Father of the Internet.

– Friday January 21st

Dr.Patti Thigpen, an audiologist with her own practice
in Murfreesboro, TN, was featured in a newspaper story.
She was asked which is the best communication mode for
the deaf – oral, ASL, cued or any other method.
Her response basically was this –

whatever works is fine

– Saturday January 22nd

The proposed closing of a deaf school in Bristol, a
town in England, has led to a protest rally by the deaf community. The town council wants to close the school and replace it with two satellite classrooms at other schools and with a new mainstreamed program in a public school.

…..

Deaf Miscellaneous stuff:

If you are deaf and plan to surf the waves at a Japanese
shore, then you might think of purchasing surfing equipment
at a shop named “Barrell Surf” which is located in
Maebashi City. The shop owner, Sato Koichi is deaf. And
what is interesting about the shop location is that the
nearest shore is probably 200 miles away! Despite the
distance, he has cultivated a loyal customer base.

A BIG CITY AND A SMALL TOWN
Deaf people that live in big cities (New York, Chicago,
Los Angeles) and in big deaf communities (Washington, DC
and Rochester) are used to seeing other deaf people
that sign in public or go to stores and have clerks
sign to them.
It is different in small towns. We do not see too many
deaf people that sign in public. And many store clerks
do not know signs.
Well, one ASL student was visiting a small island in
Hawaii. Very few people around on that island. He went
to a store to buy something and saw a deaf clerk. Both
were shocked but glad to know that they can communicate
with each other in ASL. This is rare

SIGNING WITH ASL AND FACIAL EXPRESSIONS
During a training session, a deaf person had two interpreters
with him. The deaf person used ASL with a lot of facial expressions.
At the end of the training session, the deaf person was scolded
by the angry human resources director.
The angry director told the deaf person he has a bad attitude
because of ASL use and facial expressions.
The human resources director is crazy.

CONFESSIONS OF A SUCCESSFUL DEAF EXECUTIVE
A successful deaf business executive, who functions
as a hearing person, has this confession:

I am deaf and lost without my hearing aid. But I make
it a point to control the acoustics around me. In
business meetings, I steer discussions to a one-on-one
basis and I prevent cross talk (across the table) by
associates

INDIANA’S DEAF BUSINESS PEOPLE
Posted on a Deaf Indiana web site is a list of
deaf individuals that own their businesses.
These individuals are:

– Ron Bute, operates his moving company
– Carmel Flores, operates her photography business
– Matt Kruger, operates his own catering business
– Andy Taylor, operates his own lawn care business
– Johnny Mazurkiewicz, operates his own cafe

DeafDigest editor is not sure if other big
metropolitan areas have that many deaf-owned
businesses. DeafDigest is not talking about
a side business, but about full time businesses.

A HORSE RACE TRACK NEXT TO GALLAUDET UNIVERSITY
If a race track was located next to Gallaudet
University, within easy walking distance, would
Gallaudet students spend their spare time
betting on horses?
Well, there was a race track named Ivy City
and it, indeed, was located next to Gallaudet
University.
This race track operated between 1879 and 1890, before it closed down for good.
It is not known, however, if Gallaudet
students frequented that race track. Or if
underage Gallaudet students were prohibited
from attending the races.
Gallaudet history books made no mention of that race track.

LOOKING BACK AT A PAST DEAFDIGEST VIDEO

THE STATUS OF THE SOUTH DAKOTA SCHOOL FOR THE DEAF CAMPUS
Now that there are no more classes for the deaf on the
campus of South Dakota School for the Deaf, what will be
done with the site?
It will not be sold at this time being because
administrative offices and audiological labs are still
there.
The state may look into leasing unused space on the
campus.

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!

Hot DeafNews boring, but important!

The FCC is seeking few good individuals to serve on its
Consumer Advisory Committee. While it is a “hearing”
committee, FCC needs input regarding deaf-related issues
(captioning, video relay, etc). The upside is that we,
the deaf, can make our needs heard at the committee
meetings. The downside is that hearing people are not
that interested in deaf-related issues, whereas we,
the deaf are not that interested in hearing-related
issues!

Rene Pellerin’s corner: 

Winters are difficult for folks who are Deaf-Blind.

It is difficult to travel independently due to snow and ice.

Occasionally, it might be a little easier to travel with pile of
snow on each side! It is like walking through the maze!

More often, the snow hides familiar landmarks and it is easy
to become disoriented.

I have a favor to ask all of you.  Get to know your Deaf-Blind neighbors.
Do check on them after snow storms.

Thank you. 

Rene has started a new show business, focusing on
the Deaf-Blind.

….

Deaf Question of the Week:

Q. For the board of directors of a deaf school or
a deaf service agency, which is more important, hearing
individuals or deaf individuals?

A. Both! Hearing individuals have contacts with people
with money. Deaf individuals understand “deaf issues”
better. So, both go hand in hand!

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:

We are always reading about success stories of hearing
developers, hearing entrepreneurs, hearing venture capitalists.

We have a number of young deaf individuals that aspire to
succeed in the hearing business world but are being held
back because of their deafness.

This being said, DeafDigest wishes we will see successful
deaf developers, deaf entrepreneurs and deaf venture
capitalists.

DeafHistory – Looking Back:

Year 1933 – Grace Coolidge, a former teacher at Clarke School for
the Deaf, has resumed her work with the deaf. As a Clarke School
teacher, future president Calvin won her heart and married her,
and she left the teaching profession.

After Coolidge died, Grace went back to work with the deaf. In
what capacity, it is not known since wikipedia said:

After Calvin’s death, Grace Coolidge continued her work on behalf of the deaf

Deaf and the Money:

a #1 lesson when working in clubs for the deaf

Do not steal money from the club treasury

During the sixties and seventies, two well known
New Yorkers, actively involved with their own
deaf social clubs, stole money.

They were caught and while they were never prosecuted
for their crimes, they earned the ultimate lifetime
punishment – being ostracized by the New York Deaf
Community
