California legislative horse trading at its best!

The controversial AB 2072 was passed, pacifying 
opposing sides. One side wanted the original version
intact, much to the anger of the deaf community.
Other side wanted AB 2072 killed; the horse trading
was to make sure ASL was listed as one of the
options. And both sides are claiming victory during
this political compromising.

A prestigious honor in Washington, DC is being a White
House fellow. And Kubby Rashid, who is deaf and is a
member of the Gallaudet faculty, has been announced as
one of this next group of Fellows.

And this is not all - former deaf major league baseball
player Curtis Pride, who is currently the Gallaudet
baseball coach, was named to the President's Council for 
Fitness, Sports and Nutrition

A banner day, indeed, for Gallaudet University to see two

The South Dakota School for the Deaf, with its enrollment at
its lowest ever, has a new superintendent in Marjorie Kaiser.
The state Board of Regents made its appointment effective
immediately. She also serves as the superintendent of
the School for the Blind and Visually Impaired. 

To be fair, the low enrollment is totally misleading. The
main campus enrollment is low, yes, but the school oversees
the local mainstreamed programs statewide.

STUBBORN ORAL FAILURES
   Many deaf people went to oral schools for the deaf.
Some of them speak very well. Some of them still cannot
speak well.
   If everyone understands the oral person's speech,
then it is congratulations.
   But if everyone do not understand the oral
person's speech, then it could be a problem.
   If that oral person with poor speech goes to the
restaurants and points to the menu the order he wants,
this is fine.
   But if that same poor speech oral person stubbornly
speaks repeatedly on his restaurant order even if
the waiter does not understand him, then it is
embarrassing.
   Is it worth to be stubborn because of high pride?
DeafDigest says no!

AN ALMOST PERFECT BUSINESS FOR THE DEAF
   What is a perfect business for the deaf. Owning a
dog kennel. Dogs bark all the time and these loud
barking noise would not bother a deaf person.
   Why is it an almost perfect business? Because the
deaf person cannot hear the dog cry or whine. When a
dog cries, it may be for a good reason that the deaf
person may not know about.
   Yes, we do have a deaf owner of a dog kennel in
Florida. It is owned by Ernesto Freye.

A STRANGE ALEXANDER GRAHAM BELL TALE
   Somewhere on the internet was a tale regarding
Alexander Graham Bell that was puzzling.
   It said that he invented the telephone but never
phoned his wife or his mother because they were
both deaf.
   Well, the telephone was invented in 1876. The
TTY, which could have made the telephone conversation
possible, was not developed until 1964. By that
time all these three people were dead.


A DISTURBING NEWSPAPER STORY
   A newspaper story that ran yesterday was titled:

Parents of deaf toddler pin hopes on an implant

   Is it saying that if the CI does not succeed, the
toddler is faced with a lifetime of failure and doom?
   Of course not! The toddler has every chance of success
even if the CI may (or may not) work.



THE ONLY DEAF TEACHER IN THE SCHOOL DISTRICT
   There was a newspaper story of the only deaf
teacher in a school district.
   Add this to the comment a professor in a Deaf
Education masters degree program made recently.
He said fewer people are interested in Deaf
Education careers.
   Perhaps that may change some day. Bad economy
and bleak job market may steer more students into
Deaf Education careers. 

OUR NEXT DEAF PLAYER IN THE NATIONAL HOCKEY LEAGUE
   For many years Jim Kyte was the National Hockey
League's only deaf player.
   Hopefully in the next few years we may have other one.
Gregg Sutch, described in the newspapers as profoundly
deaf, was drafted by the Buffalo Sabres only just
recently.
   The newspaper article, however, was contradictory.
It said that while he wears two hearing aids, and was
described as one of a profound hearing loss, is not deaf!
   Self denial at its' best.



ALL BUT THE DEAF
   Swain's is an outdoors and fishing gear store in
Port Townsend, Washington.
   It also had another store in Sequim. Because of 
economy and competition, that store closed its doors.
   All of the employees at the Port Angeles store
were laid off - except for just one employee -
and that employee is deaf. He is being transferred
to the Port Townsend store.
   Said the store CEO:

He is deaf and reads lips. He's my example of all 
that's right with work ethic. He's my muscle, helping 
move goods from the closed store.



OUR ORGANIZATIONS SERVING THE DEAF AND HARD OF HEARING
   We have many, many organizations, international,
national and local that serve deaf and hard of hearing people.
   One such organization is:

Deaf International Basketball Federation

currently the World Deaf Basketball U-21 championships,
involving national deaf men's and women's teams are
taking place at Lublin, Poland

Hot DeafNews boring, but important!

There is an organization, housed in Spain, that oversees
accessibility needs of those that play video games.

The name is very long - and here it is:

The International Conference on Translation and Accessibility 
in Video Games and Virtual Worlds

Anyway, they wish to address the accessibility needs at
a conference in December. Should DeafDigest safely assume
that it means captions/subtitles on these video games?

A. No, but we do have a deaf man who races standardbred

racing. It is Rick Macomber, who races professionally in
Indiana.
