– What the best stories are saying about the deaf?

Ricardo Salas, not deaf, will soon be graduating from
the UCLA medical school. His goal is to help the deaf –
because his three younger brothers are deaf. He said:

I always wanted to understand from a medical point of view why the three youngest are deaf. That’s why I studied neurological sciences and then took a doctorate in medicine.

Every deaf school campus has landmark buildings;
some of them have been torn down; some of them
have been renovated. In the case of Virginia
School for the Deaf and Blind at Staunton,
the Main Hall was the campus landmark. Unfortunately
it was torn down. Wanting to preserve the memory
of this building along with other campus buildings, Faithlyn Robinson, a deaf teacher of photography, took pictures. As a result, the Augusta County Historical Society has hosted an event that featured
Faithlyn’s pictures. She knew what she was doing
because of her classes at the Art Institute in
Atlanta that she took after graduating from Gallaudet.

– Very Hot News

Comedy of errors going on at Lansing Community College?
This famed interpreting program was placed on hold
by the administrators, alarmed at low passing rates
of our future interpreters. Instead people thought
this program was being closed permanently! Fortunately
cooler heads prevailed and this program should continue,
but with suggestions to help interpreters pass their
courses and get their required certificates.

Whew!

– Thursday March 24th

A hungry deaf customer used the internet relay to order
a sub from a fast food outlet in Lawrence, Kansas. Instead
of taking the order, she was hung up six times. Angry, she went to the restaurant to confront the supervisor, who then yelled at her, telling her he refuses to accept relay calls from the deaf. She has then filed legal action. Upon hearing about it, the franchise owners fired the supervisor, but would not comment any further on this issue upon advice of their attorneys.

– Friday March 25th

a magazine for people in the EMT field ran a story of a deaf man
in Minnesota who has been repeatedly thwarted in his efforts
to win a promotion to a higher EMT position of more responsibilities
because of his deafness. He took all the qualifying exams and
passed these with high grades – yet he has been blocked from being
promoted. The man’s name is not known.

– Saturday March 26th

The National Exchange Carrier Association is no more for us
as far as the funding of deaf relay services is concerned. The FCC has selected Rolka Loube Saltzer Associates to do the
funding math for us. Would the change impact on us, as relay
users? No.

DEAF MARGARITA? TRUE OR FALSE!
The Margarita is one of the most popular drinks
in USA, not just at Mexican restaurants but at many
other restaurants.
Did the deaf person invent Margarita? A tale of
many, many years ago is about a deaf bartender.
He was mixing drinks but misunderstood an order
from a bar patron and accidentally mixed up wrong
ingredients. The hearing bar patron loved it so much
that the word “margarita” was invented.
True or false?

AN AUTO ACCIDENT
There was an auto accident. A hearing man suffered a short stroke
while driving and hit the car, driven by a Coda.
The Coda went out of the car to check on the hearing driver.
They could not communicate and the Coda thought the hearing
man was deaf. The Coda used sign language but it did not help.
After recovering from the short stroke, the hearing driver
and the Coda exchanged information for insurance purposes.
And they chatted for a short time, and told the Coda that his
daughter works at Gallaudet University!

HONORING A DEAF PILOT
Last week the Minnehaha County Historical Society in
South Dakota featured a presentation that has honored a
deaf pilot – Nellie Zabel Willhite.
Willhite, who passed away in 1991, became the state’s
first female pilot. And she achieved this feat at age
of 35; most pilots become licensed at a younger age.
And despite her deafness she became a commercial
pilot, which is impossible today among deaf pilots.

SHARP MEMORY AND THE DEAF PATRON
A restaurant in Washington, DC that DeafDigest editor
and his wife rarely frequents, has a waitress with a
sharp (or super) memory.
She came to the table asking if the dining party
wanted drinks. Halfway into ordering a specific drink,
the waitress suddenly said:

I remember the drink you ordered from the last time.
No need to explain any further

DeafDigest editor wonders if her memory is sharp because
DeafDigest editor is the only deaf patron she has ever
served in her years as waitress. And it is easy to remember
that particular moment? Or it that the waitress is blessed
with memory of drinks from hearing patrons ordered a long,
long time ago?
More likely it is because the patron is deaf. Hearing
patrons come and go; some are regulars, most are not –
and waitresses cannot remember them all.

A CHOCOLATIER AND THE DEAF
Georgina Ivory-Edwards, a British woman, is
a choolatier, doing wonders with Belgian chocolate.
She is not deaf, but has a close friend that is deaf.
While her first name is Georgina, her nickname is
Gigi. Actually it was Gi that started out as her
nickname before she changed it to Gigi.
Why Gi or Gigi? The close friend could not pronounce
“Georgina” so to make it easier for him, he called her
Gi!
She liked Gi so much that she went by that nickname
before eventually changing it to Gigi.

CONFESSIONS OF A DEAF BASKETBALL REFEREE

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

A fan was behaving inappropriately; I was ready to confront him
and throw him out of the gym. Instead of directly confronting
him and dealing with communication issues, I went to the school
athletic director and told him the fan had to leave the gym.

WHAT IS THAT SUPPOSED TO MEAN?

he is sensory-impaired

Why is the deaf person the one that is called sensory-impaired?

There are hearing people that cannot see, cannot taste, cannot smell and
cannot touch. These people are not called sensory-impaired, whereas
we, the deaf, are.

Why?

of classes for all interpreters, ITP and ASL teachers and students.

The Florida Hotel offers free parking (some conferences charge up to $36 per day) and free in-room internet (some hotels charge $12.95 per day).  

The huge Florida Mall has an enormous food court offering you complete meals for as little as $5.99 (some conference hotels charge $8 just for a hot dog).

Frequent presenters include Peter Cook, Crom Saunders, Trix Bruce,

in excellent quality of instructors.

For the advanced group, there will be language-focused and
interpreting-focused classes with RID CEUs applied for.

There should be two dozen exhibitors with a huge variety of items
available.  With many classes having breaks hourly, there will be an

Rene Pellerin’s corner: 

Video Relay Services

We are frustrated using Video Relay Services because the interpreters
are not dressed to meet our needs.

Our precious time is wasted when interpreters put us on hold in order
to change their shirts/blouses.

We, with Usher Syndrome, need good color contrast.  For light skinned
interpreters, black attire with navy blue background is most helpful
for most of us with low vision.  Interpreters with dark skin can wear
lighter solid color shirts.  Please do not use white.  Its reflective
nature bothers our eyes.

Good news!  A big thank you to IWRelay, which recently added
Deaf-Blind Video Relay Service (DBVRS).

Darran Zenger, who is Deaf and vision impaired himself, works for
IWRelay and was behind all this!

Put DBVRS.tv in your VP, you will see a big difference.  People who
are senior citizens should try it too.

Happy VRSing!

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

Deaf Question of the Week:

Q. I am confused; the Department of Transportation (DOT) does
not allow deaf truck drivers. Yet, I am seeing some
deaf truck drivers. What is going on?

A. A bit complicated. If the truck weighs less than 10,000
pounds, then the deaf can drive it legally. If the truck
weighs more than 10,000 pounds the deaf can drive it legally
if it is intra-state, but not if it is inter-state.

send your questions to mailto:barry@deafdigest.com

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

…..

Wish List of the Week:

that the Department of Transportation will finally allow
the deaf to drive trucks

…..

DeafHistory – Looking Back:

Sometime during the 1910’s – former NAD president
George Veditz had an appointment with President
Woodrow Wilson. The issue was discrimination against
the deaf in the Civil Service. Veditz pressed his
case via notes written back and forth. Wilson
indicated interest in doing something about it.
Unfortunately he became ill in office, and this
issue become a non-priority, forgotten and lost.

…….

DeafNumbers of the Week:

16,000
calls made by Deaf Australians with the National
Auslan Interpreting Booking and Payment Service
(to get interpreters for themselves)

$4,000,000 per year
Australian government pays the Auslan service

500 interpreters

12 hours per day open Monday to Friday
5 hours per Saturdays
