– What the best stories are saying about the deaf?

Stealing the show at the SXSW Film Festival at
Austin, Texas was the film produced by Robyn
Girard. She is deaf. And using her knowledge of
filmmaking, designing and animation, critics
said her work stood above them all!

A hearing aid for $180? Yes, if Dr. Sreekant Cherukuri,
not deaf, who is an ear, nose and throat specialist
with his practice in Michigan City, Indiana. He said
he was inspired by the low prices on such iPhone
devices and felt he could do the same with low
cost hearing aids. His latest model, however, is best
designed for those in the mild/moderate deafness
range.

– Very Hot News

Word has reached DeafDigest that Larry Littleton, a deaf man,
was in charge of the American Red Cross evacuation center
in Kauai, Hawaii during the Tsunami. Said a source:

When was the last time hearing people put a deaf person in total control of a disaster situation

– Thursday March 17th

Many college students refusing to admit their hearing
losses? Yes, if the survey conducted by researchers at
University of Florida proves to be accurate. The findings
were printed in a recent edition of the International Journal of Audiology.

– Friday March 18th

Georgia School for the Deaf will be looking for a new
superintendent . Lee Shiver was removed from his post
by the state Department of Education, which declined
to explain the reason. For the time being, Kenney Moore, director of the Atlanta Area School for the Deaf, will be pulling double duty, supervising both schools.

– Saturday March 19th

A CI having long-term implications? This is what
Laurie Eisenberg, a staffer with the House Ear Institute,
is trying to find out. The target of her research is
a group of deaf children implanted before they were
five years old.

…..

Deaf Miscellaneous stuff:

The revised ADA regs has already kicked in, as of March 15th.
It is the biggest set of revisions in 20 years, and it is
supposed to cover everything – be it restaurants, stadiums,
movie houses and even jails!

DeafDigest will see if these new regs are being enforced
or being deftly evaded via loopholes!

ORAL DEAF DURING MEETINGS AND WORKSHOPS
In the past, oral deaf had oral interpreters
during meetings and workshops. And today,
these oral deaf depend on CART.
Do all of these oral deaf look at CART today?
No, many of them look at ASL interpreters.
Why? Good question.

DOUBLE-WORD DOCTOR IN NAME FINGERSPELLING
When old time Gallaudet students wanted to talk
about one professor, they would fingerspell the same
name twice.
The sign name for that person, in fingerspelling,
was “dr dr” – saying it twice.
Dr Dr? Yes. The professor was Dr. Powrie Doctor,
and he was always mentioned as Dr Dr.
He died many years ago and today’s Gallaudet
students do not know who he was.

THE PALM BEACH TOWN MANAGER
Palm Beach is a town in Florida. The Town Manager is
Peter Elwell. He is not deaf. What does a Town Manager do?
He more or less functions as the Town’s CEO, serving at the
direction of the Town Mayor and/or the Town Council.
What about it? Elwell is the board chairman of the
Deaf Service Center of Palm Beach County. In essence,
he wears two hats.
Hopefully he will always have the best interests of
the deaf while serving as the Town Manager.
DeafDigest thinks it is the first time that an
individual would pull a double duty, helping serve the
deaf while serving the needs of the town.

LOCKED IN DISAGREEMENT
The NFL players cannot agree with the NFL owners on a
new contract. Despite intense negotiations, both groups
still disagree – and as a result, the fear is that NFL may never again be the same.
Can’t happen in the Deaf Community? Think again! Way
back in late seventies, the NAD faced a crisis on its
hands. Terry J. O’Rourke, the author of the hot selling
sign language book “A Basic Vocabulary”, was in the employ
of the NAD. He wanted to be paid a royalty on the sales
of this book. Fred C Schreiber, the NAD executive director,
felt that NAD employees should not earn royalties.
Despite months of intense negotiations with a third
party, both men could not reach agreement.
As a result, O’Rourke bought out his rights to the
book and left NAD to establish his own book publishing business.
The NAD bookstore, once a thriving operation that
was a main source of revenue for the NAD, was never
again the same, eventually closing up.

A PROFILE INTERVIEW IN A NEWSPAPER
Many newspapers feature a Question and Answer
interview with a selected local person every week.
Brian Cantor, not deaf, was interviewed by a newspaper
in Yorkshire, United Kingdom.
One  of the questions asked of him was this:

Who is the Yorkshire person that you most admire?

His response was this:

John Goodricke, the deaf astronomer, who discovered the first
double star, Algol. He was elected as one of the youngest ever Fellows of the Royal Society, aged 21.  Sadly, today he is all-but forgotten by many people, but it’s worth finding out more about this remarkable man who overcame his deafness.

CONFESSIONS OF A DEAF BASKETBALL REFEREE

(by a deaf basketball referee as told to DeafDigest editor)

I work with hearing referees all the time. If just me and one
hearing referee work a basketball game, we communicate with
each other by note and pen. But if two hearing basketball
referees work with me in a game, then I am often left out
in the dressing room conversations!

Hot DeafNews boring, but important!

DeafDigest mentioned a while back about a new tooth hearing aid.
Well, this device has been approved for use in Europe.

Rene Pellerin’s corner: 

“Stay Organized”

Being organized is very important for individuals who are blind,
vision impaired and Deaf-Blind.

When you have a large number of people living in a household, it is
challenging!

I personally do a lot of cooking these days.  I am “Mr. Mom”.

I have a “photo memory” of where things are in the cabinets.

One day I was cooking dinner, one of the side dishes was fried rice.

We sat down for dinner.  My daughter asked what did I put in the
fried rice.

I tasted the fried rice and sure enough, it was YUKKY!

I went to the cabinet and found that I was using Worchester sauce
instead of soy sauce!

So you see, I tend to have soy sauce, in front of Worchester sauce!

The bottle shape is almost the same.

Since I have many folks living at my house, I need to double check
the bottles before pouring!

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

Deaf Question of the Week:

Q. I heard about separation of deaf students at schools
for the deaf many years ago. What was this all about?

A. Years ago many schools for the deaf had two separate
departments – the oral department and the manual department.
To prevent “contaminating” the oral students with signs,
they were separated from the manual students in classes,
cafeterias and dormitories. When these oral students got
older, they were assimilated into the manual department.
