News of the Week

   Newly minted deaf Hungarian parliamentarian Adam Kosa
is off to the races. In his very first speech at the
European Parliament he blasted Slovakia's new language
law.
   He is saying that Slovakia is trying to suppress the
rights of the minorities in choice of languages.

..

   We have deaf people that ride horses; we have deaf pilots;
we have a world champion deaf motocross racer; we have deaf
auto racers, and even two deaf players in the National
Football League. These are "dangerous" sports, that even
people that can hear also can get hurt.
   This being said, Walt Disney World is saying that Segways
is too dangerous for the deaf to use and is trying to enforce
their anti-deaf ruling via the courts!
   Disability Rights Advocates for Technology is fighting
this ruling in Florida.

..

   The government of Manitoba, in Canada, announced
its commitment to supporting people with disabilities,
the deaf included.
   The government, while saying it supports the deaf,
has not mentioned anything about helping the deaf while
outlining its ambitious plans to help other disabled
groups.

NO INTERPRETER AT AUCTIONS
   Could a deaf person participate at a hearing auction
without an interpreter?
   There is fast action at auctions, and it is easy for
a hearing person to get lost!
   But what about a deaf person? A deaf businessman told
DeafDigest that he goes to auctions without an
interpreter!
   How? The auctioneers know him. And they use their
fingers to tell the deaf person the price being bid,
and will make sure the deaf person knows the price that
has been bid.

National Deaf Business Institute Re-launches Website Highlighting Deaf
Business Owners

Media Contact:         Ronald Sutcliffe, Executive Director
mailto:execdir@ndbi.org

National Deaf Business Institute Re-launches Website Highlighting Deaf
Business Owners

Washington, D.C. [July 4, 2009] - The National Deaf Business Institute
(NDBI) is pleased to announce the re-launch of its website www.ndbi.org
as developed by Viable, Inc, a deaf-owned and deaf-operated company that
develops communication access technologies and provides video relay
services. "This updated, user-friendly site allows us to share news of
interest about deaf business owners," said Ronald Sutcliffe, NDBI
executive director. "It'll also have a blog and allow us to bring together
deaf business owners around the nation to share ideas, thoughts and
experiences." 

NDBI was founded in 2002 with the purpose of helping deaf people develop
skills to start, manage, and grow successful businesses. With the mission
of advancing entrepreneurship by deaf people through education, research
and outreach, NDBI?s vision is to build economic power among deaf persons
by helping increase business productivity. In order to instill a solid
entrepreneurial spirit among deaf people, NDBI believes that it is
critical for the community to have strong leaders and visible role models.
Experienced deaf entrepreneurs are also able to volunteer a few hours
every week for any of our various programs for youth, college students, or
professionals. 

"NDBI offers a variety of services to not only deaf business owners, but
also to all deaf persons who work in the field of business, in both the
public and private sectors," NDBI President Louis Schwarz said. "We strive
to develop and serve a community of deaf business leaders by offering
programs that provide equal access to the resources available to any
business owner. The programs also will provide tools deaf people can use
to overcome barriers imposed by society."

Sutcliffe added, "We are really appreciative of the generosity exhibited
by Viable, and are pleased they are equally committed to promoting the
expansion of deaf business ownership in this country.  This website is
only one of many steps to this accomplishment, and we?re very excited
about the possibilities ahead of us."   

Deaf business owners are encouraged to visit www.ndbi.org , enter their
businesses in the directory, and share news about their businesses or
professional accomplishments.

ALMOST A DEAF CIGARETTE
   Many years ago a deaf chemist worked for a big cigarette
company. He was analyzing the Virginia Slims cigarette and
he had a great idea - a new cigarette that tasted like a
bubble gum.
   The chemist's supervisor liked the idea and formed a
new research team to see if a "bubble gum-tasting cigarette"
could be successful.
   Unfortunately for the deaf chemist, the bubble gum
cigarette was not successful because it would easily get
spoiled quickly on the market.

TAKING A HINT
   Matt Roloff is well known for his Little People, Big World
reality TV series.
   He is an advocate for the rights and the needs of Little
People, especially at hotels.
   He would invite the hotel general managers to observe him
and his wife, Amy, while they struggle to use the hotel
room amenities - TV sets, bathrooms, closets, beds, etc.
   Instead of lecturing, a simple demonstration of their
daily struggles, is worth more than 10,000 words.
   What about us, the deaf? We need interpreters, captions,
visual devices, etc.
   Yes, we have ADA, but ADA does not replace attitudes!

SHOCKING REVELATIONS ABOUT THE DEAF?
   Do the hearing people need to be shocked about
their deaf descendants?
   The Mesa Regional Family History Center in Mesa,
Arizona is just about the world's biggest archive of
family history records.
   A story was written up about this center in a newspaper
not too long ago.
   It mentioned that a hearing researcher discovering
much to her surprise that her descendants, way back in the 17th
century, were three deaf sisters accused of being witches
and that one of them was found guilty and hung to death.
   Said the researcher:

I'm not anybody's judge. You really accept the people the way
they are

   She is correct. There are Deaf Skeletons in the Closet, just
the same as Hearing Skeletons in the Closet!

THESE GOOD OLD PRINTING DAYS
   A newspaper headline was this:

San Francisco Chronicle Outsources Its Printing

   In these good old (ITU) days of fifties and sixties,
inexperienced deaf printers would move to San Francisco
just to get jobs at the San Francisco Chronicle
newspaper plant.
   That newspaper had a reputation for leniency
towards inexperienced deaf printers, and it was called
the "school" job. Printers could learn enough after
few months and then move on.

YOUR PREFERENCE ON TV
   Some programs are shown at the same time on two different
cable channels.
   And more often than not, on one channel, the captions
are clear but the picture was bad, and on another channel
the captions are lousy but the picture was clear.
   Your preference? We, the deaf, would probably pick
clear captions though being stuck with a lousy picture!

AHEM, SAY THAT AGAIN!
   Tyson Gillies, also mentioned in yesterday's
Blue edition, was given a good write up in the
newspapers for his participation in the minor league
baseball all star game.
   One newspaper said:

he has 35 percent hearing in one ear and 55 percent in other ear

   The other newspaper said:

he has 70 percent hearing loss in one ear and 40 percent in
the other ear

   Huh! Loss in decibels was not mentioned; and is there a
difference between having hearing in percentages and a
hearing loss in percentages.
   So much newspaper jumbo-mumbo.

SOAP OPERA VS REAL LIFE
   An upcoming soap opera episode in "All My Children"
involves two characters - Kendall and Ryan that bicker
over their deaf son, Spike. Both Ryan and Kendall could
not deal with their son's deafness and seek counsel of
a family doctor.
   In ending the mother refuses to call her son deaf
and accuses her husband for being defeatist because he
has accepted the deafness.
   Pretty much sounds, sad to say, true in real life.
DeafDigest editor has a distant cousin who split with
his wife - because of the same issue - their son's
deafness!

TALES FROM FORMER DEAF PIZZA DRIVERS 

(series to be run on a weekly basis until list of
tales run out)

I had a very large order, approximately 20 pies
to be delivered to a hotel. I knocked on the hotel
room and all of a sudden many college kids swarmed
all over me.

It was the Princeton University lacrosse team,
staying overnight at a hotel before a big game the
next day. They won the NCAA championship that year.

Yes, they tipped me very well

Hot DeafNews boring, but important!

   The North Carolina legislators are debating on a
new piece of legislation that would allow the
deaf to serve on the jury.
   An issue raised by the opponents was the inability

witnesses.

Question of the week:

Q. I have seen the word "lipspeaker". Is it the same as lipreading?

A. No. It is the same as oral interpreting; this phrase is mostly
used in United Kingdom.

Wish List of the Week:

that all state commissions for the deaf provide the
same high quality of services for the deaf and
the hard of hearing.

some state commissions are great; other state
commissions are not so great.

DeafHistory - Looking Back:

Year 1999 - after a run of nearly 20 years, the AMRAD, an
organization of radio and electronics hobbyists based
in Northern Virginia, but serving the Washington, DC
area, unplugs the HEX BBS.

HEX BBS was a primitive e-mail service that served a small
number of users in the Washington, DC area - for years - before
the Internet became wildly popular.

This project was funded by Department of Education, and
intended to provide email service for the Washington, DC
deaf and disabled community. After the funding stopped,
AMRAD continued operating it for years! 

..

Deaf and the Money:

$3,000 - raised by the national Deaf Baseball Team of Cuba,
by selling boxes of cigars at the 2000 World Deaf Baseball
Championships that took place in Washington, DC.

The Cuban players needed hard cash to bring home hard-to-get
consumer goods and which was why they, on the sly, sold
these illegal Havana cigar boxes. Needless to say, these
boxes sold like hot pancakes!

The World Deaf Baseball Championships is no longer being
staged. Logistical and monetary issues prevented staging
of future international deaf baseball classics.

..

DeafNumbers of the Week:

10,000 fans - expected to attend the Deaflympics in Taiwan
this coming September
