Top stories about the deaf:
A thief in Cape Town (South Africa) broke into a
school and stole equipment that is needed to
turn on the CI for a 2-year old deaf child.
As a result, his activation is being delayed.
And the thief will not find value in the
stuff he stole because the equipment is for
CI only and not for anything related to other
electronic devices!
A deaf prisoner, held in India but believed to
be from Pakistan, died in a prison hospital.
He was supposed to undergo trial but legal
authorities were not able to get more
information out of him, hence the suspicion
that he was from Pakistan.
Two deaf woman from Colorado have filed lawsuits
against law enforcement agencies for being arrested
without being advised of their rights and also
without being provided with interpreters!
Apple was given the suggestion to create
new emojis for – Service Dog With Vest and Leash,
Ear With Hearing Aid and Deaf Sign (Male and Female).
What happens if a waiter misunderstands a
rough signing gesture by a deaf diner
in a restaurant? Well, there is a fear that
a new system in restaurants – Management Alert
Color System would alert the staff about it,
thus throwing the deaf person out of the
restaurant!

This week’s ASL video in youtube
ONE IN MILLION ODDS?
    This story is for Deaf Statisticians. And this is a
true story.
    An accident with two cars took place in a recent
year. The driver of the first car was deaf and ASL signer.
The driver of the second car was also deaf and ASL signer.
    Both drivers did not know each other but they were
able to exchange in ASL their names, their addresses and
their insurance cards.
    What are the mathematical odds of this happening?
One in one million or one in one billion?

DEAF TEACHERS IN HEARING CLASSES
    We have some deaf teachers in hearing classes.
They are deaf; they do not speak well; they
do not hear anything as hearing aids don’t
help them. And they don’t have interpreters.
    How do they succeed? Said one deaf teacher
in a hearing classroom:
I use anything – powerpoint, blackboards, visual
cards, photocopies of notes,  laptops, verbal
gestures, etc

Rene Pellerin’s Corner:
During today’s DeafDigseet, I am at a Canadian DeafBlind Camp in Winnipeg.
Canada airlines have an interesting program to help passengers with
disabilities.
It is called “One Fare One Price” for eligible individuals with
disabilities.
What that means is if a person needs assistance while traveling, the
support person flies for free.
This applies to flights within Canada only.  Since I live in Vermont, I
can drive to Montreal and fly from Montreal to Winnipeg Canada.
They required a simple form of proof that I was DeafBlind and my SSP flew
for free.  I only paid the tax on the second ticket.
In America there a policy that if we cannot receive safety instruction, we
must have assistance with us.
It is very difficult to get approved.  It is not a form but a phone call
with lawyers!  I have not succeeded.
Rene’s show business started in year 2010 and it focuses on the
Deaf-Blind.
