– What the stories are saying about the deaf?

Deaf Boston University professor Bruce Bucci has
a dream. He wants for the university to increase
its own awareness about the deaf and of deafness.
And not just at the university – but statewide.
A gulf exists between the deaf and the hearing –
and this is what he wants to bridge, through
better understanding of the deaf.

Russell Harvard, just 20 years old, may be the nation’s hottest deaf actor. He has been getting more and more roles – CSI, Deaf West, There Will Be Blood, The Hammer and now this – Tribes.
We should be hearing more of him as time goes on.
Not bad for an actor who began with Gallaudet
theatrical productions before moving on.

– Very Hot News

Deaf, hard of hearing, and late deafened people look
at music differently from each other. Hearing people
love music but in the deaf community, love for music
varies. The British documentary film – Lost and Sound
tries to explain how three individuals look at music –
from a born-deaf dancer, from a pianist that became
deaf while young and a music critic that suddenly became deaf. This premiere was shown in Austin, Texas

– Thursday March 8th

Why do many deaf people struggle with speech? A Duke University research team said there are two parts to
a speech – talking and listening. These are second
nature to the hearing, but not that so with us. Guess
this is “new” information, which basically is old
information!

– Friday March 9th

Seems Asian restaurants are jumping on the “hire the deaf”
bandwagon. The latest restaurant is Bakery café, a chain
in Kathmandu, a city in Nepal. This chain, which runs
seven restaurants, has a total of 60 deaf employees!

– Saturday March 10th

A national science competition took place at Orange County
in California. One of the winners was one team with their
project titled – Hearing the World’s Silent Side. The goal
was to help individuals that became deaf because of nerve damage

THE DEAFBLIND TENANT AND THE LANDLORD
Some years back, a deafblind man wanted to rent
an apartment that was vacant.
The landlord said no. The deafblind man filed a
lawsuit, and won. It cost the landlord plenty:

– had to pay legal fees on both sides
– had to pay punitive damages
– had to give deafblind man free lifetime stay at apartment!

DON’T BRING MOTHER TO A JOB INTERVIEW
This is a true story, which took place at the National
Association of the Deaf during the late seventies.
NAD was interviewing applicants for a position with the
administration.
One of the applicants brought his mother to the interview.
Yes, he did not get the job!

WHAT IS NEXT IN INDIANA?
What is next in Indiana after the House passed a bill
to establish a center for the deaf and hearing-impaired.
These steps are:

1. the governor has to sign the bill
2. the state has to decide where the center will be located
3. the state has to decide who pays for the center
4. the legislators must agree on the state’s recommendations

These four easy steps? No, not necessarily, give the way
politics plays itself out. And since Indiana is broke, no agency
wants to pay for the new center, hoping the other agency would
pay for it.

A COMMENT BY A HEARING WAITRESS
DeafDigest editor was dining at a Washington, DC
restaurant.
The waitress told him that she is from Albuquerque,
New Mexico – and that in all of her high school classes there was always an interpreter.
She said it was a big public high school with a large mainstreamed program.

HOSTING A TOWN SCI-FEST
Dunbar SciFest, an annual event in East Lothian, Scotland,
is being co-hosted by Dr Audrey Cameron. In real life she is
a chemist, specializing in plastics. She is deaf.
This event seeks to entertain people of all ages, and
it is getting more and more popular each year.

Deaf Question of the Week:

Q. More and more Asian restaurants are hiring the deaf.
This is great, isn’t it?

A. Yes and no. How many of these deaf employees win
promotions – from being an entry level employee
(dish washer) and becoming a general manager?
This is the question we should be asking. Otherwise
it is a lifetime dead end job.

send your questions to mailto:barry@deafdigest.com

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

Spring forward!

Today (Sunday) we change our clocks one hour forward.

Of course we lost one hour of sleep.

For me and my friends who have Usher Syndrome that means more daylight during the evening!

We get to be out roaming around the neighborhood!

Now remember, we can not see you well, but do come out and say hi to us!

Wish List of the Week:

That all low-income deaf people can subscribe to
the internet and the cable services at cut-rate
monthly costs.

……..

DeafHistory:

Year 1932 – The Saturday Evening Post, a big time
magazine in these days, ran a piece that was titled

The Short Autobiography of a Deaf Man

It was written by Harold MacGrath, a deaf man who
managed to hide his deafness from friends for one
simple reason – people thought deaf people were not
smart!

…….

DeafNumbers of the Week:

47 number of parent advisers in the past

6
number of parent advisers as proposed

West Virginia is broke, and the state is thinking of
curtailing its statewide outreach program to help
the parents of the deaf and the blind, cutting down
to six from 47 full time outreach people

Yes, these parents are screaming at the legislators
