News of the Week:

   DeafDigest dedicates this edition to Dorothy Polakoff,
a Coda, who departed us this week.
   She founded the Department of Social Work at
Gallaudet, and trained many students to become
social workers for the deaf.
   If you bump into a deaf social worker that is a
Gallaudet graduate anywhere in USA, the chances are
that it is a Polakoff-trained social worker.
   Thank you, Dorothy for improving the lives of the
deaf in need.

..

   It is official. Scranton State School for the Deaf
will not close, but oversight of that school will be
assumed by the Western Pennsylvania School for the
Deaf (WPSD).
   Agreement was made on a three-year plan to convert
the school into a day K-8 program. The school property may
be leased to a third party, possibly Marywood University.
If the university opts not to lease the land, then WPSD
will be the option.
   In the long run, Scranton SSD will change into a new
WPSD satellite program.
   This is the second such development this year involving
schools for the deaf. Two charter programs for the deaf
in St Paul, Minnesota merged into a single charter
program.
   We probably will be seeing more such significant
developments down the road as schools for the deaf
adapt to the changing times.

..

   Will we be seeing a Sign Language Commission at any
time in the near future?
   This is what Robyn Hunt, New Zealand Human Rights
Commission, is proposing.
   DeafDigest is not sure a Sign Language Commission
would work in USA - the deaf population is too diverse -
ASL, oral, CI, late deafened, Cued Speech, etc. Such
a commission would serve just a portion of the deaf
population.

..

   If legislators in Texas have their way, then there will
be a new law titled "Texans with Disabilities Act."
   It would be similar to our ADA except that the provisions
in the state would be much stronger.
   The enemy is time. Legislators meet every two years and
if this bill does not pass this year, the proponents will
need to wait two years later.

..

  Will we, the deaf, get a tax break on hearing aid
purchases?
   There is a piece of legislation - Hearing Aid Assistance
Tax Credit Act - that is bring brought up on the Hill,

DEAFNESS AS AN ACCIDENT?

   A city in Vietnam conducted a survey on dangerous workplace
conditions. It said that there is a sharp increase in injuries
as a result of workplace accidents.
   The report header said:

Deafness tops list as workplace accidents rise

   DeafDigest is not sure if it means there are more accidents
among deaf workers as compared to hearing workers. Or if it is
saying that deafness is the leading result of workplace
accidents (noisy factories)?

PRESIDENT'S CONFIDANT
   Every American president (and every corporate CEO)
has someone they could rely on for feedback and advice,
These people are called confidants.
   Of course, Obama has his confidants. But have we ever
had a deaf person who became US president's confidant?
   Yes. It was Bernard Baruch. Hit on the head by a baseball
bat during a fight in a college baseball game, he became
deaf.
   Deafness did not prevent him from becoming a successful
stock market broker and owned his seat on the New York
Stock Exchange.
   In later years he became the confidant of President
Wilson and President Roosevelt.
   Unfortunately for all of us, he did not advise these
presidents on deafness-related issues.

A DEAF CHEF AND KSE
   Deaf cook Siau Lioe, an immigrant of Thailand, is
a cook at the Democracy Grille restaurant in Bethesda,
Maryland.
   He became the cook after starting out as a dish washer
and the quality of his work in the kitchen has been
praised.
   It did not always start out that way. Because of
communication issues, orders were messed up.
Fortunately the kitchen chef and Siau came up with
a set of signs which became the KSE. Examples are:

- hand rubbed against stomach means slab of ribs
- arm flapping means chicken wings
- fingers tickling the open palm means crab cakes

  KSE? Yes, Kitchen Sign Language

SECRET TO MARLEE MATLIN'S SUCCESS
   Why is it that Marlee Matlin never seems to run out
of scripts and movie offers whereas our other deaf actors
struggle?
   It probably may have nothing to do with talent, though
it cannot hurt.
   It has a lot to do with a production company she
started with her interpreter, who eventually became her
business partner.
   They work at it daily, finding out what the new scripts
are about, when and where the casting calls take place.
And also convincing writers to incorporate her into
non-deaf scripts and so on.
   Peter Wolf told DeafDigest editor many years ago"

In Hollywood, deaf actors must hustle for roles

LOBBYING AND THE DEAF
   Lobbying for funds is one way for deaf groups
to get funding.
   Lobbying is expensive, and success is not
always guaranteed.
   Take a look at Deer Park, a town of 3,200
people in Illinois. The town budget is $3,500,000
which is approximately equal to the budgets of
some of our schools for the deaf and some of our
bigger Deaf Service agencies.
   In an effort to get 1.5 million in funding,
the town will be paying $60,000 for lobbying
efforts.
   Not that easy for a deaf group to decide to
spend that much on lobbyists.

ALWAYS A NEW PHRASE
   DeafDigest editor was reading some emails when
the phrase "non-forensic services" came up in the
message.
   We all know what forensics means by watching all
these crime shows on TV.
   But non-forensics services in the field of deafness?
Googling up this phrase gives the impression that
it has a lot to do with how professionals deal with
issues in a human way, and at all nothing to do with
science.
   At any rate, brace yourself - we will be seeing this
phrase become the buzzword in the near future.

MANY FAMOUS PEOPLE HAVE A LINK WITH THE DEAF

- Darth Vader, famous fictional character in Star Wars

He became deaf after being battered by Obi Wan Kenobi
in their final battle together!

WHAT DO INTERPRETERS HATE?

complained one interpreter:

seeing that my team interpreter is late for an assignment
with me

if you have these "hate" or "horror" stories, please
mailto:barry@deafdigest.com

COMMENTS FROM A CART OPERATOR - continuing series

One of the most important things that people who use closed
captioning can do is to become advocates for good
closed captioning.  

Since the FCC does not currently have guidelines with regard
to the quality of closed captioning, some people are just trying
to get by with the cheapest method possible without regard for
the quality of the services.

If you see TV shows that have poor captioning, you need to let
people know.  Don't just turn the channel and assume someone
else will fix the situation.  Please take steps to complain to
the FCC, the television station, and the producers of the show. 

Also, if you see shows that have excellent captioning, it would
be good to let people know that they're doing a good job.  In
the current job climate, many very good captioners are losing
their jobs to people who are not qualified.

WHO IS IN CHARGE OF A MAINSTREAMED PROGRAM IN A SCHOOL DISTRICT?

- a classroom 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 would direct their mainstreaming
programs; some districts are different and this reflects in
a startling title above. Be surprised or shocked every week
until series run out)

Crash course on the Digital Television Transition

This is a continuation of our weekly educational column on
addressing concerns about the analog TV shutoff and the final
transition to digital TV which is scheduled to occur on or
before June 12, 2009.

Question this week:

I live in a small town in the mountains. I learned that my TV station
will not go digital by the June 12 deadline. I thought all TV stations
had to be digital by that date. What's going on?

Answer:

Only "full-power" TV stations have to be digital by June 12. It does
not apply to "low-power" TV stations which are exempt from the rule.
There are over 2,100 low-power TV stations that operate in
mountainous areas and in small towns like yours. These stations
mostly serve areas that are unable to get over-the-air full-power
signals because they are too far away from the full-power TV station
to receive the signal. The low-power TV station helps bring that
signal to the area affected by this problem. The FCC has not yet set
a deadline for these TV stations so they will continue to broadcast
in analog. For more details, read this link:

Hot DeafNews boring, but important!

Deaf Apocalypse of the Week:

   This is happening in a city where a residential school for
the deaf is located. A school, where a mainstreamed program is
located, is closing up. The board cannot decide which replacement
school would be the better one for these mainstreamed kids.
   DeafDigest wonders what is so wrong about sending these
mainstreamed kids to the residential school, as day students?
   Politics? Money? Educational oversight? Whatever - the
board won't consider the residential school as the option! 

..

A Vocational Rehabilitation counselor's pet peeve:

Your client brings up what you did at the school for the deaf
30 years earlier even though it is none of her business.
