– DeafDigest editor’s favorite Old Fogey

To celebrate the 10th anniversary of Old Fogeys carried
in DeafDigest, here is one of DeafDigest editor’s favorite
Old Fogeys. It is a favorite because of the folly of
some school systems forcing oralism instead of teaching proper grammatical rules.

do visit it at:
http://deafdigest.com/category/comics/

– What the stories are saying about the deaf?

Michael Sybert, a deaf student at North Posey HS in
Indiana, takes vocational training classes, especially with
masonry and bricklaying. It is in masonry where his
skills are the strongest. It had led him to championships
in the district and state Skills USA championships.
He will be moving on to the nationals real soon.

We have known of the adage that if you cannot find a job,
then go into business for yourself. Most job-seeking
deaf individuals don’t go the business route but a few do.
One of them is Angkie Yudistia, West Jakarta, Indonesia.
No one would hire her, and even more so, the two that hired
her, immediately fired her upon learning of her deafness.
Her qualifications are impressive – bachelor’s degree in communications and master’s degree in marketing communications.
And she was a nominee for the Most Fearless Female by
Cosmopolitan Indonesia magazine and a finalist for
West Jakarta’s Abang None pageant. And also published a
book. Still, no one would hire her – so she set out and
founded her own company – Thisable Enterprise which
connects corporate social responsibility with disabled
individuals. It is a new enterprise that she is currently
putting her energies behind it.

– Very Hot News

There is a 37.5 percent spike in job discrimination
claims by deaf clients during the past three months. This is what the RAD Deaf Law Centre in United Kingdom is saying.

– Thursday June 7th

Alexander Graham Bell devised the telephone in 1876, supposedly because he thought it would help
the deaf to hear better. It didn’t – until the first
TTY machine came up in 1964.

And now this – there was a story going around that
the Internet was invented in 1934! Belgian engineer
Paul Otlet played around with the wires between the
telephone and the TV in hopes of sending messages
back and forth everywhere. It “sort of” worked but
it was so primitive that no one seriously pursued this
idea at that time.

Suppose it really worked, it could have tremendously
helped Deaf Communications at that time. Unfortunately
we had to wait decades later for something that worked
(TTY, internet).

– Friday June 8th

The Finnish Association of the Deaf is saying that up to 20 percent of the deaf adults are unemployed and blames employers for discriminating against deaf job applicants.

– Saturday June 9th

Goodwill, which hires the deaf, and the disabled, at their
sheltered workshops, has been accused of paying these
people wages below the minimum wages as dictated by federal law. While there is a minimum wage law, the some organizations
are allowed to pay these people as little as $1.00 per hour!

BEST TO WORK WITH DEAF OR WITH HEARING?
Which is better – work with deaf (deaf school or
deaf agency) or work with hearing?
Deaf employees that work with deaf are stuck with
rumors, gossip and angry talk.
Deaf employees that work with hearing know nothing
about rumors, gossip and angry talk – unless hearing
tell deaf about it. Many times hearing don’t share
with deaf.
Which is better? You decide!

DO WE HATE IT WHEN HEARING USE TOO MUCH GESTURE?
There are many hearing people that use right
gestures to communicate with the deaf. But there
are also many other hearing people that “over-gesture”!
Do we hate it when hearing people over-gesture
with us?
Guess so.

A MATTER OF PRIORITIES
What is our #1 priority? Is it captions in movie houses?
Or is it more interpreters? Or is it better education for
deaf children? Or is it employment opportunities?
A deaf activist in Australia raised this issue. DeafDigest
editor has heard these complaints among some deaf American
activists – that the deaf community do not know what the
priorities are – and that their #1 priority is movie house
captions!

A FRUSTRATED DEAF LAW SCHOOL STUDENT
A deaf attorney, looking back at his law school days, had to
deal with frustration.
He said that in some classes there were no interpreters or
CART. At that time CART operators were tied up with depositions
and had no time for law school CART work.
He got around it by taking night classes – because depositions
took place in the daytime, making CART available at night!
Times have changed!

Deaf Question of the Week:

Q. I heard that a CI implant will cure deaf individuals
suffering from tinnitus. Is it true?

A. In some cases, yes; in other cases no.

send your questions to mailto:barry@deafdigest.com

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

……..

Rene Pellerin’s corner:

Hearing or Deaf Interpreters?

When we, the Deaf-Blind, need interpreter services, we face a decision whether to use Deaf or hearing interpreters.

It all comes to the type of event and personal needs.

For me, when I attend events that are all hearing, I typically use hearing interpreters.

When I attend Deaf events, I often use Deaf interpreters.

In some situations, I use both Deaf and hearing interpreters! (Half & Half)

So, for each situation or event, the Deaf-Blind consumer and interpreter referral agency needs to evaluate the event to schedule appropriate interpreter services.

Our fellow Deaf community members should still come up and talk with us one to one!

Interpreters, thank you for your valuable services!

Rene’s show business is now entering its 2nd year and it
focuses on the Deaf-Blind.

You can email him at mailto:info@renetheunstoppable.com

Wish List of the Week:

Arkansas just implemented its Smart911 emergency response
system. This is supposed to be of big help to the deaf.

This being said, the wish is that every state will also
implement Smart911 emergency response system, effective
immediately!

……..

DeafHistory:

Year 1990 – Senator Tom Harkin pushed hard for the ADA to
become a law, after seeing his deaf brother deal with
discrimination all his life. He did not want the deaf to
face the same thing.

…….

DeafNumbers of the Week:

Thomas Edison

won nearly 1,100 patents

his goal was as follows:
one minor patent every 10 days
one major patent every 6 months

at his research lab “invention factory” he had 20 full time scientists and craftsmen
working on different inventions at the same time!

An Invitation to Apply for the Position of President
Willie Ross School for the Deaf
Longmeadow, MA

Founded by parents -providing excellence in education one child at a time.

THE SEARCH
The Willie Ross School for the Deaf (WRSD) seeks an inspirational and energetic President to shape the next stage of growth for this distinctive organization. The President will provide direction to the School and serve as its public face, leading advocate, and operational steward. S/he will build on the momentum created by a dedicated board, veteran staff, and the outgoing President, Dr. Louis Abbate, who will be stepping down in 2013 after 28 years in the role. The ideal candidate will be an experienced educational or nonprofit leader and strong communicator with a deep commitment to the needs of deaf children and their families. This is an outstanding opportunity to lead a school with a reputation for innovation that aims to provide for the evolving intellectual, social, and emotional needs of each and every student.

Located in Longmeadow, Massachusetts, WRSD is a private school that was founded in 1967 by parents who wanted a day school option for their deaf children. With a model that allows students to learn at its Longmeadow Campus as well as in East Longmeadow public schools, WRSD is a pioneer in the mainstreaming of deaf students. Its simultaneous communication model – combining English-based sign language with spoken language – underscores the school’s prioritization of individual student needs above any particular approach or philosophy. WRSD continues to expand its offerings in order to be as responsive as possible to its student body. In addition to its campus-based programs, WRSD offers an array of audiological and educational services to students in 20 communities in Central and Western Massachusetts. With its educational partnership model, the School has become a national thought leader in deaf education and stands poised to take the next step in its evolution.

The President reports to the Board of Trustees and oversees a school that enrolls 63 students and reaches about 200 more through its outreach division. The 48-person WRSD staff includes four senior administrators, faculty, interpreters, audiologists, counselors, and speech therapists. The ideal candidate will have senior leadership experience at an institution with a focus on educating students with special needs. S/he should be experienced in reaching out to community leaders, policy makers, parents, and educational experts. S/he should have a passion for educating children and possess strong entrepreneurial instincts.

WRSD has retained the national executive search firm Isaacson, Miller to assist in this recruitment. All inquiries, nominations/referrals, and resumes with cover letters, should be sent electronically and in confidence to:

Sheryl Ash, Vice President & Director
Greg Esposito, Senior Associate
Isaacson, Miller
