News of the Week

   Interestingly enough with Deaflympics coming
up soon, do read this News of the Week that
was posted two years ago!

(from two years ago)

   Still on the same topic re deafness being
viewed differently in Asia, the mayor of
Taipei City in Taiwan is implying that we,
the deaf, are not normal.
   The mayor gave the opening speech at the
World Deaf Swimming Championships. He said:

that this swimming championship is different
from other games only normal people can
participate in

   Well, Jeff Float and Terence Parkin,
these two famous deaf swimmers, have won
medals at past Olympics. According to the
mayor, these two elite-level swimmers
are not normal!

..

   If deaf kids at Lexington School for the
Deaf cover their ears, it is for a good
reason.
   The Jackson Heights, NY neighborhood,
where the school is located, is having issues
with the city regarding trucks that roar
through the streets, designed to handle
heavy traffic.
   This issue was brought up in a recent
newspaper story.

..

   The National Council on Disability (NCD)
wants to hear from us, the deaf, on future
issues of concern.
   Our issues, and other disabilility-related
issues will be compiled in a report that will
be given to the President and Congress.

..

Attention:

Deaf & Hard of Hearing Current or Former United Parcel
Service, Inc (UPS) employees

If you use sign language, worked for UPS or applied for
a driving position at UPS at any time since June 25, 1997,
please read the announcement posted in the Blue edition.

There is a proposed final settlement in a class action
lawsuit brought on behalf of deaf and hard of hearing
current and former UPS employees and applicants for driving
positions who failed or would fail the hearing standard
established by DOT for drivers of commercial motor vehicles.

..

Join us on September 25th and 26th

Your Single Source for Assistive Technology .............................................................. .............................................................. SUBSTITUTE ORAL SCHOOL TEACHERS All schools have a list of their own substitute teachers. DeafDigest editor remembers his young days at 47 School for the Deaf in New York City. It was an oral school, ASL was not permitted. All of the regular teachers could be lipreadable. That was no problem in the classroom. The problem was with the substitute teachers. Many of these subs were impossible to lipread! We suffered in the classroom when the regular teachers were absent and substitutes hired to replace them for the day. 47 School for the Deaf has been ASL for the past 25 years. - for ASL News version, please click on: http://deafdigest.com/videos/video-unlipreadable/ (for your convenience, video links are posted on top of each DeafDigest edition) HOLLYWOOD CAMERA PEOPLE KNOW NOTHING ABOUT THE DEAF In some movies that involve deaf characters, we often see deaf actors without their hands. These cameras focus on deaf faces and deaf bodies but not deaf hands. This is not good - because without deaf hands we can't see them signing! Does it mean Hollywood camera people know nothing about the deaf? - for ASL News version, please click on: http://deafdigest.com/videos/video-hollywood/ (for your convenience, video links are posted on top of each DeafDigest edition) THE NORTH POLE FIRST AND ONLY DEAF? Oliver Westbury, a deaf Briton, reached the North Pole on foot in April 2008. He said he was the first and the only deaf person to reach North Pole. The first? The only? North Pole, once thought to be inaccessible, has been more and more accessible in recent years. Do we know if Westbury was the first (and the only) deaf person or if there were other deaf persons that we know nothing about? DEALING WITH LATE-DEAFENED EMPLOYEES The Royal National Institute for Deaf People (Great Britain) came up with a report. It said that majority of British employers are not prepared to deal with late deafness among their older employees. This is sad, if this is true. A PERFECT QUOTE We are waiting for the announcement of the new Gallaudet president. Also, the NAD will be seeking a new CEO. Joel Trachtenberg, not deaf, was a former president of George Washington University, located in Washington, DC. He said: being president of a university is no way for an adult to make a living This quote also applies to the NAD! TAKING THE CLUNKER HIT A certain hearing aid dealer has taken a hint from the "Cash for Clunkers" program. This dealers is offering a rebate in exchange for an old hearing aid. The rebate is to be applied towards a newer, and more modern, hearing aid. HEARING AID VS CI (SHORT SERIES) A Hearing Aid vs a CI, who wins? A hearing aid wins at the start, but at the end of the race, the CI wins! TALES FROM FORMER DEAF PIZZA DRIVERS (series to be run on a weekly basis until list of tales run out) I delivered pizzas on the side while attending NTID/RIT. I made good money on tips; I was aware that deaf customers do not tip that well, or at all. What I did was to educate them on the need to pay tips since I needed money to pay for my college education. I would charge them $12.00 for a $10.00 pizza and they all paid up with no questions! This pay-up tip trick worked well. If you are a former Deaf Pizza Driver and have an interesting tale, please share it with: mailto:barry@deafdigest.com .............................................................. .............................................................. For postings, announcements and employment ad rates, please email mailto:barry@deafdigest.com for Special Notes, please go to the bottom of this section .............................................................. .............................................................. WHAT IS THAT SUPPOSED TO MEAN? In the Netherlands, there is an abbreviation that is spelled DEAF. DEAF as in deaf? No. Spelled out in full, it is: Dutch Electronic Art Festival .............................................................. .............................................................. 31st World's Largest ASL Silent Weekend in 2010 Signing Greeting Cards ASL and Interpreting DVDs We had over 600 at the recent silent weekend. The venue for the June 24-27, 2010 event will handle 700-1000 participants and include a medical interpreting track.
