Top stories about the deaf:

Krishneer Sen, the new UNICEF ambassador, who is
deaf and a former Gallaudet student, said he
will focus on children that are deaf and disabled.

Alvaro Jimenez has been honored by Texas School
for the Deaf for using both the Lengua Senas de Mexicana
(Mexican Sign Language) and ASL for deaf students
that are still learning English.

Speech converted to vibrations that deaf people will
feel with their tablets? This is what Baylor University
scientists are working on. Will it work? Just stay tuned.

The European Union has been urged by deaf activists
to stop discriminating against the deaf.

DeafDigest has mentioned this several times but it is
finally that the US Mint is selling the Grace Coolidge
bronze medal for $9.95. It shows the First Lady, a
former teacher at an oral school for the deaf,
fingerspelling U-S-A. It has been an irony that DeafDigest
has also mentioned.

HOMEWORK FOR DEAF DURING CONVENTION
When people attend conventions, do they do homework
in their hotel rooms?
Normally, no. But every year there is a national
convention of the National Court Reporters Association.
It is an organization of real-time captioners.
Many of them do their “homework” during the
convention week. Their homework is to caption
the TV news programs in their home towns!
For them it is not “play” time during
convention, but “work” time.

A BIG PROBLEM AT A DEAF-OWNED CAMP
A deaf man owned his camp that he rented out
to campers and to deaf organizations.
There was a big problem when deaf people
stay at the camp.
The water bill goes up very high! Why?
Because the deaf people cannot hear the toilet
water leaks.
This made the camp owner angry and he stopped
renting the camp to the deaf, only for the
hearing.

Deaf Book of the Week

Deaf Question of the Week:

Q. Why was the movie industry so opposed to
open captions?

A. Hearing people say open captions bother them.
Yet these same hearing people say that open
subtitles do not bother them.

Go figure!

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

Rene Pellerin’s Corner:

Another DeafDigest reader offered a suggestion about
side shields on glasses.

Remember I told you about my new glasses that make me
look like a Ninja Turtle!

Below is Tom’ remedy:

Get wide strips of Velcro, preferably black. Cut them so you
can use both types on the sidepieces. This would work for
virtually any pair of glasses. So the need for custom glasses
is not so pronounced. You would have to custom cut them
yourself but a few minutes is all it takes and when you don’t
want the side blinders you can simply take them off. Carry an
extra set in your backpack or whatever you carry with you. Now
to find a place that sells wide Velcro . . .

Cheap fix too. Spread the word in DeafDigest.

Great suggestion Tom, now seem like I could get a set of
blinders from the horse or pony stall!

Just need an SSP to reign me in!

Thanks for writing, Tom.

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

Deaf Wish List of the Week:

that FCC makes it a law that movie houses must
show open captions.

Possible? Sadly, no.

DeafHistory:

Year 1660 – two prominent British men,
William Holder (theologist and classic musician)
and John Wallis (mathematician) feuded with
each other and it got ugly.

Cause of the feud? Both men claimed credit
for teaching a deaf man perfect speech!
