The issue, among the disabled, the deaf, included is why Hollywood is not hiring them for all jobs in the entertainment industry. - Sunday October 18th T. Alan Hurwitz was announced as the next president of Gallaudet University. - Monday October 19th Replacing Hurwitz, for the time being, will be James J. DeCaro. He was appointed as the interim president of NTID. It is not a new experience for him, for he has twice served in that capacity. He begins interim work on December 1st. Said a source who requested anonymity: He's a good choice for the interim as he knows how the system works - Tuesday October 20th A cochlear implant for every deaf child in Ontario. And that the Ontario government should pay for these implants. These were the requests that the VOICE for Hearing Impaired Children, an advocacy group, have made. - Wednesday October 21st Gallaudet's mission has been completed. Up next is the National Association of the Deaf. This organization will be searching for the next CEO to replace the retiring Nancy Bloch. A search committee has been formed, headed by Kirsten Poston with Melissa Draganac-Hawk assisting her. Filling out the search group are six other individuals. NTID will come up next as they will need someone to replace T. Alan Hurwitz (Thursday-Saturday Hot Deaf News will be in the Gold edition) .. Deaf Miscellaneous stuff: Sign Stage is lucky. It was reported in DeafDigest a couple of weeks ago that an insider embezzled funds from the deaf theatrical group. The embezzler's family paid back the funds. Said the Cleveland-base Sign Stage officials: The total was significant to the modestly funded for-profit theater company ..

Your Single Source for Assistive Technology ................................................................ ................................................................ A MYSTERY ASL ON A TV PROGRAM Few years ago, a leading character used ASL for a short time on a TV program. Puzzled, DeafDigest editor researched the TV show on the web site to find out why was the actor using ASL. There was no real reason for it; there were no deaf characters on the show; there was no deaf plot on the show; nothing at all related to deafness. Why ASL? Sometimes scriptwriters would put it in the show for no reason at all! - for ASL News version, please click on: http://deafdigest.com/videos/video-mystery/ http://deafdigest.com/videos/video-important/ (for your convenience, video links are posted on top of each DeafDigest edition) SAYING SOMETHING IMPORTANT OR NOT IMPORTANT A deaf person drove his car to the car inspection station. After the inspections were done, the inspector said something that was impossible to understand. The deaf person was concerned. He only wanted his car to pass inspection. Was the inspector saying something? The deaf person was going to hand him a pen and pad to ask him to write out what he was saying. But just before he gave him the pen and pad, he read the inspection report. It said: passed The deaf person immediately drove away, glad that his car passed the inspection, but at the same time was wondering if the inspector was really saying something important? - for ASL News version, please click on: http://deafdigest.com/videos/important (for your convenience, video links are posted on top of each DeafDigest edition) THE POWER TO HIRE In many workplaces, we may need to know who has the power to hire - the manager or the human resources person? The manager normally has the power to hire, but the one that screens out the application forms is the human resources person. This being said, the human resources person would often toss out applications from deaf job seekers that the manager may probably want to hire. Happens everywhere. The classic example was a deaf engineer who was rejected by the human resources person. But the manager, whose son was deaf, found out about it - and immediately hired the deaf engineer! RELIGION AND EDUCATION OF THE DEAF Deaf historians Outsa Toura and Anu Savolainen, both of Finland, researched the history of Deaf Education in the late 19th century and came to an interesting conclusion. It was that educators' goal was to teach deaf language so that they could understand religion. Keep in mind the 1880 Milan Convention where educators of deaf voted to endorse oral education at the expense of sign language education. Adding both together the hope was for deaf children to learn language orally in order to understand religion! ................................................................

A DEAF DOCTOR IN CANADA Last week's DeafDigest mentioned Megan Jack, a deaf medical student at the University of Manitoba medical school. She would not be the first deaf doctor in Canada. There is one already in Toronto - Dr. Hartley Bressler. Still, this leads to another question, is Dr Bressler, the only deaf doctor in Canada? Again, do not know! THE DEAF IN NEWSPAPER WRITING FIELD Do we have newspaper writers that are deaf? Right now, yes, there is a few. DeafDigest found out about a deaf man writing for the Lodi News Sentinel newspaper in California. There is a twist. There were a few other deaf individuals that wrote articles for newspapers. They did not major in journalism, nor did they aspire to careers in the newspaper field. They were printers. But because the newspapers have been laying off people left and right, the few surviving printers were asked to write articles. This is not a joke. DeafDigest editor personally knows of at least two of them. DEAF ISSUES (short series; based on comments by educators and deaf service professionals) Just because numbers of deaf students are low compared to students of other disabilities, does not mean we do not need more counselors that know and understand the needs of the deaf (series to continue until it runs out) WHAT DO INTERPRETERS HATE? hearing this remark: I guess you really learn a lot for interpreting this session! if you have these "hate" or "horror" stories, please mailto:barry@deafdigest.com COMMENTS FROM A CART OPERATOR - continuing series When I have worked at different events as a court reporter, CART provider, or captioner, oftentimes people have approached me who have never seen a steno machine up close. One of the first comments many people make when they see the machine for the first time is that there are no letters on the keys. The tops of the keys are blank. They wonder how we know which keys are which. People who use the steno machine must memorize what all the keys are. There are 22 keys on the machine. We use combinations of letters to make other letters. We don't depress one key at a time like you would on a typewriter or computer keyboard, but we stroke multiple keys at once, much like chords on a piano. Writing whole words and phrases in a single stroke is a very important factor in being able to reach the high speeds necessary to be court reporters, CART providers, and captioners ................................................................ ................................................................ weekly DeafDigest Blue & Gold editions also posted at: http://deafdigest.com updated every Monday ................................................................ ................................................................ A DEAF SCIENTIST FUNCTIONING IN ALL-HEARING ENVIRONMENT There is no reason why a qualified deaf person could become the project director - either at the field or at the project headquarters. Yes, there is discrimination, but some workplaces are less discriminatory than others!

In many cases, the patient as well as the health care provider who may provide service to them, is unaware of laws that mandate the provision of accommodations in the health care setting so that all persons have equal access to health related information.

Rusty Wales' Wine of the Month Salute!

Hot DeafNews boring, but important! An issue surfaced on one of these interpreters' yahoogroups was to how to deal with the Facebook. The big question is: How does the personal use of this social media tool impact your professional relationships with deaf/hard of hearing consumers? .. The Deaf and the Law If you are deaf and are poor and cannot afford an attorney, could one be found? Depends. 1. Miranda Rights - only for criminal cases 2. Legal Aid - provided for civil and criminal cases; may reject clients because of case overload or underfunding issues 3. New California Law (first one in USA) - the courts will grant you an attorney in civil cases Of course - getting an interpreter is another issue .. DeafADA Issue of the Week: If an informal meeting is scheduled on the Capitol Hill to address ADA amendments, and if only few congressmen show up, it is not a big concern. These meetings are to iron out issues before worse ones surface down the road. .. The Captioning Blunder of the Week: we are having a big game to die (today) .... What became of? T. Alan Hurwitz - past member of deaf softball team in St Louis as a young man - present president-select, Gallaudet University mailto:barry@deafdigest.com with "past" and "present" details .. News of the Week - Looking Back 10 Years Ago: A metro transit stop just a short walk away from Gallaudet? A pipe dream? No, if developers have their way. A committee named "Save New York Avenue" has been formed with one goal in mind - to erect a Metro stop at the New York Avenue/Florida Avenue intersection. That would be five blocks away from the Gallaudet University campus. (this project has reached reality; one can easily take the Metro and a breezy 15 minute walk, one is already on the Gallaudet campus) .. News of the Week - Looking Back 5 Years Ago: For years we thought Dick Tracy's Wrist Radio was pure fantasy. Not so any more, and we are now reading about Swatch teaming up with Microsoft to come up with Wrist Wireless Data Watches. Before we will know it, we will come up with Deaf Wrist Paging Devices. Yes, the keyboard will be tiny, but in the era of miniaturization, who cares! (Deaf Wristwatch Pagers have not yet, if it would, reached reality) .... Deaf Apocalypse of the Week: there have been cases of deaf parents refusing to place their deaf children in classrooms taught by deaf teachers. Yet, some of these deaf children end up as teachers of the deaf when they grow up! .. A Vocational Rehabilitation counselor's great news: One of your customers turns out to eventually grow to become a famous person, and even delivers the commencement address at your alma mater! .. A Lipreading Problem: What did that person say? Mom or Bob can get pretty confusing at a family gathering when mom is standing in one side of the room and Bob is standing on the other side!
