Top stories about the deaf:

Dr Dana Suskind, a pediatric surgeon at the University of
Chicago, performed many implants on young deaf children.
Years later she followed up on her patients and discovered
there were CI successes and CI failures. She rationalized
that it is not the CI itself that was the reason, but
language development or the lack of it as the reason
for these successes and failures!

The FCC has selected NTID as a subcontractor with a
video provider to develop better video technology.

An interpreter created a sensation with her interpreting
of Eminem’s Lose Yourself song. Some felt she was making
it all up.

Stealing the show at the Deaf West Theatre’s premiere
Spring Awakening was the appearance of the mysterious
couple – Paris Jackson and her boyfriend Chester Castellaw.
Paris is the daughter of the late Michael Jackson.

A DEAF BANKER COULDN’T HELP THE DEAF
We have a deaf man who owns a few small banks
in the Midwest. He is oral and knows no ASL.
He wants to help the deaf with their banking
needs. But he couldn’t. Why?
Because his board of directors showed no
interest in helping the deaf!
It is sad.

SAME OLD STORY – DEAF LAST MINUTE REQUEST
Always same old story with last minute requests
by the deaf.
In the past it was last minute requests for
interpreters.
Now – we are seeing last minute requests for
CART people that can do real time captions in
classrooms.
No matter – very hard to find interpreters
and CART people at the last minute. And if you
find them at last minute, it is very expensive!

Deaf Question of the Week:

Q. A deaf CEO of a big hearing company rarely
goes out of his office to meet up with the public.
Why?

A. Having an interpreter shadow him all the time
every day could be quite a hassle.

-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-

Rene Pellerin’s Corner:

Brushing teeth

We must brush our teeth daily to maintain healthy teeth.

Applying toothpaste onto the toothbrush is getting
difficult for me.

So now I put my index finger parallel to the brush
of the toothbrush and then squeeze the paste onto
the brush.

Sometimes it fails and lands on my finger!

Now my teeth and finger are clean!

Rene’s show business started in year 2010 and it focuses on the
Deaf-Blind.

Deaf Wish List of the Week:

that the public needs to understand that our best
interpreters are not “rock stars” – they are the
best because they want to be the best interpreter
around!

-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-

DeafHistory:

Year 1973 – The Vocational Rehabilitation Act
