Top stories about the deaf:

Matt Hamill defeated Roger Hollett in a successful
comeback from his one year retirement as Ultimate
Fighter.

California passed a new law that limits the power of the
ADA in the state. It limits the amount of damages a business
has to pay if there is a ADA violation. No longer will there
be “million dollar” fines.

A deaf Massachusetts man has filed a lawsuit against his
employer, the Westborough Public Schools system for
terminating his employment. He has accused the school
system of discriminating against the deaf. Yes, the
school system has denied that discrimination exists.

Deaf British actor Julian Peedle-Calloo will be taking
part in a prime-time drama “New Tricks” in a BBC1 program.

Should the video referees be deaf? This was the issue raised
by the Courier-Mail, a newspaper in Australia. Video referees
are used in the NFL, and it was suggested that it also be
used in rugby, and that these referees should be deaf. Reason
is that the deaf cannot hear abuse by fans and players and
coaches while studying the replays.

……………………………………………………..

Domestic Violence has always been a problem in the Deaf community. For
many years it has been a hidden problem, secret and taboo.

“It happened behind closed doors.”

“It was treated as a private matter between two people and the
community should not get involved.”

We know now that we cannot afford to let it stay private. It is
everyone’s business. We must all be a part of the solution.

What can you do if someone you care about is a victim of domestic
violence or sexual assault?

What can you do if you experience domestic violence or sexual assault?
What can our community do?

violence from Abused Deaf Women’s Advocacy Services (ADWAS), visit

ACROSS THE STREET CONVERSATION
Many years ago in Los Angeles, two deaf people worked
in two separate office buildings on a narrow street.
They happened to work on the 6th floor. They could
see each other across the street through their work
windows.
When they wanted to chat in sign language, they would
wave hands to call attention – and then communicate
together.
Not any more. It was a long time ago.

SIGNAL FREQUENCIES MAKING TWO DEAF PEOPLE CRAZY
Two deaf people lived in their own apartments.
Both apartments were near each other. These two deaf
people were not friends with each other.
Both bought their own wireless doorbell signalers.
Lamps in their apartments will flash when someone
presses on the door buttons.
Unfortunately for them, their signalers were on
the same frequency. When someone rings at one
apartment, the other apartment will flash signals.
Same thing with another apartment.
It drove both people crazy. They were angry at
each other and blamed each other for buying the
same doorbell model. It went on for several weeks
until one of them “gave up” by going to the
dealer to have the frequency changed.

DEAFNESS AND TINNITUS
There are many people with tinnitus that are not deaf. They suffer from tinnitus. Yes, we do have a number of deaf people
with tinnitus, but this is besides the point.
Anyway, in Gibraltar, a tiny nation of just 30,000 people,
there is an organization called:

The Gibraltar Hearing Impaired and Tinnitus Association

And they are working with the government to establish
a registry of people that are deaf, of people with
tinnitus, and also of people with deafness and tinnitus!

A BIG APPLE EMBARRASSMENT
Apple, thanks to the late Steve Jobs, demands perfection in
all of their products.
It was quite embarrassing when Apple’s recent new products
have had problems.
One such problem was Siri, which is voice-activated and was
supposed to help the deaf communicate with the hearing!

WHAT IS THAT SUPPOSED TO MEAN?

He is a former Deaf Professional

A former deaf professional? Meaning he is hearing and no longer
works with the deaf

or

he is no longer deaf thanks to a CI?

Deaf Question of the Week:

Q. Why are we seeing so many anti-deaf discrimination lawsuits?

A. Hearing people that have never met a deaf person in their life
(police officers, physicians, etc) may panic upon meeting a deaf
person, and may not know how to react appropriately. Hours of
sensitivity training classes often do not help in these
“first-time” encounters!

send your questions to mailto:barry@deafdigest.com

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

Rene Pellerin’s corner:

Election

We have the right to vote for the President and  for other candidates.

Of course, accessibility is needed for many of us who are Deaf-Blind.

In some states, Blind people can vote via telephone at the polling place.

My thought, we need interpreter services. I could call to vote and have an
interpreter signing the options then I use the phone keypad to make my personal
choices.  This is a not so new idea being tried out in several places around the country.

It seems to be a more private option?

Link provided here for you to review and then check your own state.

http://vermont-elections.org/elections1/VoteByPhone.html

Hey, don’t forget to vote this year!

Rene’s show business is now entering its 3rd year and it
focuses on the Deaf-Blind.
