Members of the armed forces run into risk of deafness while on combat duty. Once discharged honorably, they need to deal with their deafness. Some of them wish to attend classes in colleges. Gallaudet University is developing programs to help deafened veterans while they attend classes on the campus. DeafDigest editor remembers two late-deafened veterans of the Vietnam war that enrolled at Gallaudet during the sixties. They got involved in campus life and varsity sports. One of them became a psychologist, working with deaf patients. .. The Association of Art Museum Directors is upset. Reason was that the Orange County Museum of Art, on the sly, sold pieces of art works by famed deaf artist Granville Redmond. The anger was that the paintings were sold without being publicly advertised through normal procedures. And to make the whole thing insulting was that the private collector paid little for these works. Who was Granville Redmond? Do click on: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Granville_Redmond .. The Gallaudet University athletic department has an opening for Assistant Head Football Coach / Strength & Conditioning Coordinator. It is a full time position.

Your Single Source for Assistive Technology ................................................................ ................................................................ GRADUATING FROM SFVSC If an older deaf person came to you and told you he graduated from SFVSC, would you know what SFVSC means? You probably will be confused. It means San Fernando Valley State College. This name was changed to CSUN (California State University at Northridge). It was at SFVSC when National Leadership Training Program (NLTP) started. It died at CSUN because of lack of federal funding. Many NLTP graduates became deaf agency CEOs and deaf school superintendents. Currently CSUN has a large number of deaf students attending classes on the campus, and challenges Gallaudet and NTID during Deaf Collegiate Bowls. ................................................................

SOMETIMES HARD TO GIVE BUSINESS TO THE DEAF We have some deaf dentists, some deaf doctors, some deaf architects, etc. We should try to give business to these deaf professionals. but sometimes it is hard or impossible. Why? This is an example. A deaf person wanted a deaf architect to design and build a house for him and his family. The deaf architect turned him down. Reason was that the architect was not familiar with the town's zoning regulations and construction license requirements. He told the deaf person to find a hearing architect that knows the town's laws and regulations. So, the deaf architect lost business but was honest about it. A HARD-TO-BELIEVE STORY There was a story of a deaf man in the Australian Outback who was stuck for hours in the lobby of a government building. He was not able to get inside because no one was around to be of assistance to him. There was a button on the wall, asking people to call out who they wanted. According to the government spokesperson the deaf man had "no ability to push the button and ask for who he wanted". The embarrassed government agency promised to look into this matter. The "no ability" comment is vague. Could mean many things. UNDER PUBLIC'S GLARE Many hearing celebrities say the wrong thing when subjected to hard ball questioning by famous TV commentators such as David Letterman, Katie Couric and Charlie Gibson. Comments by Sarah Palin come to mind. We, the deaf, are not safe. During these two Gallaudet presidential protests, certain deaf individuals have said wrong things when subjected to questions by the media. And even a smooth hearing spokesperson on behalf of Gallaudet - Jane Bassett Spilman, the past chairperson of the Gallaudet board of trustees, said: Deaf people are not ready to function in a hearing world She denied making that statement, saying it was all twisted out of context, but the damage was done! THE IMPORTANCE OF ARCHIVES How important is the archives? Or even of a library? Very important - especially to national organizations of the deaf. Leaders come and go. Board members come and go. And no one remembers what happened 5 years ago, 10 years ago, or even 25 years ago. This is where archives or a library comes in. For a certain organization of the deaf, this is a painful lesson. This organization has had a library in the past, but for some reason, it fell into disuse and out of favor. This current organization president has been asking around, among past board members to fill in historical gaps. This should have never happened, but it happened. ................................................................

HEARING AIDS OR EDUCATION OF THE DEAF Which is more important - giving away free hearing aids for the deaf, or establishing free education for the deaf? Both are equally important. Not always that so in Brunei. Hearing aids are freely given out to the deaf residents of Brunei. But the nation would not pour money to train teachers of the deaf nor to improve the schools for the deaf. Misguided spending priorities? Yes. MANY FAMOUS PEOPLE HAVE A LINK WITH THE DEAF - Elizabeth Taylor, famous movie star She and her ex-husband John Warner, senator from Virginia, was featured on the front cover of one of these past editions of NAD Broadcaster WHAT DO INTERPRETERS HATE? complained an interpreter: being told, after an interpreting assignment - you are a wonderful interpreter. I would then ask - do you know sign language? And the response is always no! if you have these "hate" or "horror" stories, please mailto:barry@deafdigest.com COMMENTS FROM A CART OPERATOR - continuing series In the last ten days, the big change from analog TV to digital TV has taken place. Many people who waited until the last minute to make the change have been scrambling to get their televisions ready to receive digital programming. If you recently have gotten a converter box and you are experiencing problems with closed captioning, here are a couple problems that other people have reported having with closed captioning and what you should do about them. If you turn on the converter box and see a double row of overlapping captions, it may mean that you are seeing captions through both your television and your converter box. You should turn off the closed captioning function either on your television or on the converter box. If you are using the converter box with an analog TV set and cannot see any captions at all, you should contact the manufacturer of the converter box. If you are able to get captions when you tune to one station, but not another, most likely this is not a problem with your converter box. You should contact the television station airing the program that does not have captions. ................................................................ ................................................................ 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 itinerant teacher (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.

Hot DeafNews boring, but important! Afraid of being a party to scams, the huge Wells Fargo financial institution is refusing to accept relay calls from deaf clients. They are insisting that we, the deaf, use the TTY. Many of us have junked the TTY, and yet they continue to repeat this insistence! .. The Deaf and the Law Q. Why do some attorneys affix the word "Esquire" to their names whereas others don't? A. Said a deaf attorney: "Esquire" usually denotes a licensed attorney. If you just see "J.D." next to a title, that usually means that the person has a law degree, but is not licensed to practice. But in my case, only time I've ever used it was to write letters to college administrators who aren't providing deaf students with interpreting as a subtle way of intimidating them. .. DeafADA Issue of the Week: When the ADA Restoration Act came up two years ago, no deaf organization surfaced as supporters, except for the Hearing Loss Association of America. Lack of cohesion between national organizations of the deaf and of the hard of hearing has always been a problem from Day One. ..

News of the Week - Looking Back 10 Years Ago: The David Bruton update in North Carolina; * the rally was well attended by the deaf all demanding the ouster of the state Secretary of Health and Human Services * Bruton, who did not face the protesters, has continued to defend his statement that teaching ASL to deaf kids is child abuse * Bruton's defenders said the statement was a misunderstanding * Bruton's statement contradicts the federal law that allows parents to select speech or sign language for their deaf children * the state governor is not planning to ask Bruton to resign but is asking that all parties work together .. News of the Week - Looking Back 5 Years Ago: The National Fraternal Society of the Deaf, established in 1901, signed a merger agreement with the Catholic Order of Foresters. This means the Frat is getting out of the insurance business but will continue in a new direction, as a fraternal society. (editor's note: the Frat has since then closed down) .... Deaf Apocalypse of the Week: At an office building where a deaf person is employed, the building management issued an announcement. It said: The fire life safety system will be tested tomorrow morning and the alarm will sound for approximately one minute. Please disregard the alarm. In the event of a true emergency during the testing, you will be notified via the PA system and required to evacuate the building Now, let us suppose the deaf person is the only person in the room, and he ignores the alarm, as instructed, and a real fire takes place. How will he know the real thing from the fake thing? .... A Vocational Rehabilitation counselor's great news: One of your customers secures receipts for you to prove that the bookstore had fraudulently billed you for books that the customer never used, and the customer testifies to your supervisor that she didn't buy some of the books. The following week, other people step forward and tell your supervisor that you could not have known the fraudulent billings. As a result, you are cleared of any wrong doing. -+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+- -+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+- * 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 -+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+- -+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+- Job posting Assistant Head Football Coach / Strength & Conditioning Coordinator Gallaudet University Washington, DC Department: Athletics Department Job Number: HR-09051 Date Posted: 6/12/2009 Salary Range: $51,974 to $93,408 (11 months) Status: Accepting applications Assists the head football coach as the assistant football coach; administers all facets of strength and conditioning facilities; serves as department leader in the field of strength, conditioning, and fitness; schedules strength and conditioning workouts in cooperation with the head coach of each of Gallaudet University's 14 varsity sports; strives for excellence within the University's mission; assists the equipment coordinator in coordinating the purchase, maintenance, and distribution of equipment for the Athletics Department as related to strength, conditioning and fitness; improves on court/field performance, reducing the potential for injuries, and performs rehabilitative activities as needed; updates athletic administration on equipment needs and/or upgrades recommended to provide Gallaudet University athletes with the best possible training equipment.
