This is the Blue section. -+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+- -+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+- News of the Week: DeafDigest dedicates this edition to Stan Benowitz who departed us last week. He was a long time teacher at several schools for the deaf and his influence on students was profound. It is not generally known that he is the Father of Modern Gallaudet football; it is a long story, but to make it short, he crafted a funding proposal during his Gallaudet student days in 1947 that made possible the restarting of football as a varsity sport on the campus. Simply put, no Benowitz, no restarting of Gallaudet football in 1947. .. DeafDigest also dedicates this edition to Bob Dillman, who departed us this week. Bob, a resident of Maryland, made quite an impression in the Deaf Community with his outspoken views regarding an unpopular choice of the Gallaudet board as the next president. Another issue he spoke up was the need for Video Relay Services. As a much younger man, Bob was the Gallaudet quarterback, no big deal, except that he made a successful transition from 6-man quarterback to 11-man quarterback. 6-man quarterbacks cannot hand off the ball; they must pitch out the ball, and so his transition to 11-man football was successful. He was from South Dakota School for the Deaf. .. With the analog to digital switchover already taking place last Friday, today's edition is the last one on "Crash course on the Digital Television Transition." Said David Pierce, Davideo Productions: I personally witnessed the death of analog starting at 11:30pm to Midnight last night. Last images were Grayscale Charts....then snow. The digital channels on my 13 inch analog TV with converter box and amplified rabbit ears in my guest bedroom look great. Looks like cable/satellite. This TV is backup for emergencies if my cable or dish get cut off during a storm. .. We have deaf participants in Extreme Sports, and now this - Brenda Lussier hopes to be an Extreme Swimmer, being the first deaf swimmer to swim across Lake Ontario. A resident of Ontario, she will be making the big swimming effort soon. .. Will a judge in a bankruptcy proceedings prevent Georgia School for the Deaf and Atlanta Area School for the Deaf from getting one million dollars as promised by state education director Kathy Cox? She won one million dollars on a TV show and pledged her winnings to these deaf programs. Then sometime later her husband filed bankruptcy because of business debts. The judge's decision will be watched by the Deaf Community in Georgia. .. Tom Galey is leaving his position as CEO with the Georgia Council for the Hearing Impaired (GACHI). The deaf community is staging a farewell party to honor Tom for his work with the GACHI. ................................................................ ................................................................

GALLAUDET'S BUDGET PROBLEMS Few years ago, Gallaudet struggled with the budget. Increases in salaries and health insurance messed up the budget. But after struggling, the budget was approved. Gallaudet was glad. Gallaudet University? No, it was Denny Gallaudet, the past superintendent of the Richmond School System in Maine! Is Gallaudet part of the famous Gallaudet family? Some think so, but not sure. - for ASL News version, please click on: http://deafdigest.com/videos/video-gallaudetbudget/ (for your convenience, video links are posted on top of each DeafDigest edition) ................................................................

A TUNNEL ON A SCHOOL PROPERTY Some schools for the deaf have tunnels under their properties. A past student at Arkansas School for the Deaf was curious about the tunnel under the school campus. He went into the tunnel and walked all the way to the end, which was four miles long. He saw rats and some sewer stuff before he reached the river. That tunnel has been closed. - for ASL News version, please click on: http://deafdigest.com/videos/video-tunnel/ (for your convenience, video links are posted on top of each DeafDigest edition) INVISIBLE NOISE We, the deaf, cannot hear invisible noise. There is noise that is visible, and there is noise that is invisible. An example of a visible noise is a car that passes us by. We cannot hear the car coming by but we know that cars generate noise. What is an example of an invisible noise? A dog that cries. Just because a dog may not bark does not mean it may not cry. And the dog cries when you try to clip his nails and he fiercely resists you! Ah, these visible and invisible noises. A NEW DEAF HEALTH-CARE OCCUPATION DeafDigest editor spotted an ad on a web site from a deaf person advertising her services as "deaf independent provider" taking care of deaf individuals in need. Services offered are transportation, home care and meals preparation. The deaf person advertising these services will show license and certifications upon request. It is great that the deaf-in-need could rely on sign language providers. ................................................................

JD SALINGER'S DEAFNESS It was disclosed this week in the newspapers that famous, but reclusive author JD Salinger (The Catcher in the Rye) is "totally deaf." At first glance we wonder why is it a big deal? He is 90 years old and many senior citizens his age have lost much, if not all, of their hearing. But it seems that there is more to it than what we are reading. He is embroiled in a copy infringement lawsuit, and people are thinking that his "deafness announcement" is a strategy to try to win the case. How is this a strategy? This case is getting as stranger as Salinger's long time reclusiveness. A REASON FOR COACHING A YOUTH SPORTS TEAM Many deaf kids play on youth teams in football, soccer, basketball, baseball and other sports. Many of them are discriminated by their coaches, getting minimal playing time on the field, barely complying with the league mandate that all kids get equal playing time. There is a way to allow deaf kids to get maximum playing time. This is when a parent of the deaf child becomes the team's coach! Happens to some lucky deaf kids here and there over the years. MANY FAMOUS PEOPLE HAVE A LINK WITH THE DEAF - Nancy Pelosi, Speaker of the United States House of Representatives She may have had her father, Thomas J. D'Alesandro III, the late legendary mayor of Baltimore to thank for in understanding facial expressions, eye movements and body language. The mayor grew up with a deaf friend, and learned these "deaf" traits from him, that he could possibly have passed them on to his daughter! WHAT DO INTERPRETERS HATE? complained an interpreter: being asked this question - are you a volunteer, interpreting out of the goodness of your heart? if you have these "hate" or "horror" stories, please mailto:barry@deafdigest.com COMMENTS FROM A CART OPERATOR - continuing series I recently heard about a captioner who was having a hard time distinguishing between two players on the Washington Nationals named Zimmermann and Zimmerman. Because of the variety of names that may be encountered, some of the most challenging assignments that realtime captioners may face are sports broadcasts. One of the most confusing situations that I have ever heard about for captioners in sports occurred during the 2004 Olympics. There were athletes with the names Kirstin, Kirsten, Kristin, Kristen, and Christin. Just a few of these athletes were Kirstin Lewis, Kirsten Lawton, Kirsten van Der Kolk, Kristin Heaston, Kristin Armstrong, Kristin Wagner, Kristen Caverly, Kristen Karanzias, and Christin Steuer. Because captioners write phonetically and do not spell names letter by letter, they have to make dictionary entries for all these names, and then they have to try to remember which first names go with which last names. As an announcer quickly pronounces a first or last name, to try to figure out which spelling to use can be difficult. Unless the captioner is familiar with the sport or team, there is no way to know which spelling to use. In addition to those names, there were athletes competing in those Olympics with these similar first names: Kris, Kristine, Kristina, Krisna, Kristjan, Kristian, Krisztian, Krisztina, Kristyna, Krystina, Krystyna, Khrystsina, Khristina, Kristel, Kristi, Christi, Christie, Christy, Christine, Christina, Cristina, Cristiana, Cristian, Christian, Christel, Christal, Christiane, Christos, Chris. ................................................................ ................................................................ weekly DeafDigest Blue & Gold editions also posted at: http://www.deafdigest.com updated every Monday ................................................................ ................................................................ WHO IS IN CHARGE OF A MAINSTREAMED PROGRAM IN A SCHOOL DISTRICT? an IEP advisor (in many school districts we would expect a principal, or a director or a coordinator or a supervisor or someone with an appropriate title that would direct their mainstreamed programs; some districts are different and this reflects in a startling title above.

(final insert) Crash course on the Digital Television Transition This is the series finale of our weekly educational column on addressing concerns about the analog TV shutoff and the final transition to digital TV which occurred on June 12, 2009. We hope you have found our information about the DTV transition to be helpful and we trust that by now you are receiving digital television broadcasts successfully, whether it be cable, satellite, or over-the-air via rabbit ears.

Hot DeafNews boring, but important! A report issued by Consumer Reports has said that hearing aid prices are too high and that the hearing aid users do not get properly fitted for their hearing aids. Well, declares DeafDigest, it is an old, old issue. People have been complaining for years and years on these hearing aid issues. Perhaps, this may be the reason why many fed-up hearing aid users switch to CI, only to come with these different CI issues! .. The Deaf and the Law location: California case: a deaf man, who shot his mother to death, wanted to withdraw his guilty plea on grounds that he did not understand the phrase - intentional murder, when asked by the judge. The judge refused to allow him to withdraw the plea, and the inmate has filed an appeal result: he has been asking deaf attorneys across USA to take over the case comment: were the words "intentional murder" interpreted clearly to him in ASL or in such a language that he would have fully understood the meaning? .. DeafADA Issue of the Week: If a police officer stops you on a traffic violation, he must provide a communications aids and services to allow you to understand why you are being stopped. What is a communication aid? Is it an interpreter? Is it notepad and pen? This is why we have attorneys that argue this ADA issue! .. The Captioning Blunder of the Week: the oil lem pigs (Olympics) will take place in 2012 in London .... What became of? Catherine Sweet-Windham - Past former Executive Director, Gallaudet Institutional Advancement (which covers Offices of Development, Public Relations, Media Relations, and Alumni Relations) - Present Vice President, Institutional Advancement, University of Maryland, University College mailto:barry@deafdigest.com with "past" and "present" details .. News of the Week - Looking Back 10 Years Ago: Wilma Newhoudt, a Gallaudet graduate, won election for a seat in the South African parliament. She joins a slowly growing list of deaf individuals that have won election to public offices this century. .. News of the Week - Looking Back 5 Years Ago: The "we do not accept relay calls" statement uttered by a hotel reservations clerk last week came with a cruel twist. That very hotel, which refused to accept relay calls, has a deaf employee! This particular hotel is in the New England region. .... Deaf Apocalypse of the Week: The switchover from analog to digital TV has been completed. DeafDigest along with other deaf agencies have been mass-educating the Deaf Community re the switch over FAQ's. Yet there will still always be some deaf individuals ever so clueless to the Big Switchover. Why? .... A Vocational Rehabilitation counselor's great news: You do not attend the deaf club. The day after a regular club meeting, you find out that 500 people at the deaf club and elsewhere (all done without your knowledge!) have signed a petition urging the governor to allow you to keep your job. A well known relative of a state legislature gets wind of what happened and the legislature schedules an appointment with the governor. The second day, the governor tells your state director not to cut your job. Your job is spared from the chopping block. -+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+- -+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+- * YOU COULD PLACE YOUR PAID EMPLOYMENT ADS IN THIS SECTION * on a per-subscriber basis, the DeafDigest ad rates are the best in the nation. * For more information, send E-mail to mailto:barry@deafdigest.com -+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+- -+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+- Position Available ASL/Literacy Teacher, Early Childhood The Pennsylvania School for the Deaf Philadelphia, PA ASL/Literacy Teacher, Early Childhood: The Pennsylvania School for the Deaf is seeking an ASL/Literacy Teacher in our Early Childhood Program.
