They dropped football way back in the eighties. The school already has a schedule of opponents to play this fall, including an October 17th homecoming day game with Ohio School for the Deaf. .. A show, Carmen Mota's Fuego, is being featured in a Seoul theater. The dance choreographer is Joaquin Marcelo. He is deaf. How did he get the job as the choreographer? Very simple - the show producer Carmen Mota is Joaquin's mother and she was anxious to give her son a break. .. Is the Hearing Aid Compatibility Act of 1988 coming back to haunt members in the Deaf Community? This was the issue among the CI people regarding the Act's lack of coverage of Cochlear Implants! The Act lacks CI amendments. .. Bad economy apparently has not impacted on the upcoming convention of the Hearing Loss Association of America. This relatively new organization, in business for just a few decades, has signed up 49 exhibitors. ,,, Many clubs for the deaf allow gambling on its premises, but it is not known if local authorities are unaware of these activities or look the other way. It will be different at the Deaf Service Bureau of West Central Florida (Port Richey). The city authorities have allowed the agency to install slot machines, with proceeds accruing to the agency treasury. No one will go broke or even get rich with these slot machines. The most one can spend is seventy five cents. And their winnings would be in $25.00 gift cards to be used at local Big Box stores. This agency is pointing at another agency nearby that earns $3,500 per month via these slot machines. ..............................................................

THE TRASH CAN IS VALUABLE TO DEAF HISTORIANS We use the trash can to throw out junk and stuff we don't need. And for some Deaf Historians, the trash can is important. A Deaf Church was closing up for good. Everything was thrown dumped into trash cans and trash bins. A Deaf Historian went through the trash cans and saved important pictures and important documents about the Deaf Church's past and as saved it for Deaf Historical Research. Without the trash cans, future deaf people will know nothing about that Deaf Church's past. - for ASL News version, please click on: (for your convenience, video links are posted on top of each DeafDigest edition) ..............................................................

THE DOCTOR'S MASK We have a few deaf physicians. All of them are afraid of the masks that surgeons use while in the operating room. It is impossible for a deaf doctor to lipread other doctors if masks hide their lips. For one deaf doctor, he was surprised when other doctors told him that in the operating room they don't talk about the operation itself, but talk about sports, dogs, weather, politics, etc! - for ASL News version, please click on: (for your convenience, video links are posted on top of each DeafDigest edition) INTERPRETER GIVING UP This is a true story that took place at a recent high school graduation ceremony. The school superintendent gave a long winded speech that he spoke so fast without stopping for a pause. As a result, the interpreter gave up, her hands up in the air and shoulders giving a shrug. DeafDigest does not think it is funny. Possibly it was a volunteer interpreter, that the school district wanted to save money by not hiring a certified interpreter. DEAF IN SPORTS, SO AMAZING? Is it that so amazing that the deaf could play competitive sports? Apparently a newspaper in New Zealand thinks so. A recent story was titled: Being deaf doesn't stop girls enjoying netball The story gives the impression that deafness is a barrier in sports. Maybe hearing New Zealanders are so clueless as to what the deaf could do in sports. This nation hosted the Deaflympics in 1989. And there is a national deaf sports federation in New Zealand, which is at: Netball? It is a form of basketball and is popular everywhere in the world, except USA! THE DEAF AND THE DUKE OF EDINBURGH AWARD A newspaper in Scotland said that Ross Grant is the first deaf person to win the Duke of Edinburgh Award. The Duke of Edinburgh Award is given to young people that get involved in a range of activities. For more information about the award, click on:'s_Award Anyway, two things stand out. Ross as the first deaf person to win the award? Is this a fact or an assumption? And the person behind the award is Prince Philip, who is notorious for making insensitive remarks about the deaf and the disabled. An insensitive individual giving out the award to a deaf person? Interesting! THE RID AND THE WASLI We have the RID, which is the Registry of Interpreters for the Deaf. We also have the WASLI which is the World Association of Sign Language Interpreters. RID focuses on interpreters in USA; WASLI is world wide. The WASLI idea originated in 1975, but it took thirty long years for it to get started. Not always that easy to get different sign language interpreters from different nations on the same page. The web site is at: A DEAF MAN AND HIS HOBBY Many of us have hobbies. Some hobbies are common; some other hobbies are unusual. An example of an unusual hobby is collecting quartz crystal, which can be found by digging out the Earth in some places. Dominic Ferrante, is the deaf man with this quartz crystal hobby. And to keep up with his hobby, he attends Che-Hanna Rock and Mineral Club monthly meetings in Sayre, New Jersey. An interpreter? Yes, he brings his own interpreter to these meetings. NEED FOR PRODUCTION INTERPRETERS A deaf veteran of theatrical productions told DeafDigest that we have a number of deaf directors that are capable of directing non-deaf, non-sign language plays, consisting of hearing actors with theer customary speaking roles. What is holding them back is lack of production interpreters. Without such interpreters, deaf directing the hearing becomes an impossibility. A PERSISTENT CI QUESTION The newspapers, on a daily basis, are full of these early infant CI success stories. Is there such a thing as a 100 percent CI batting average rate among all deaf babies that are quickly implanted? Are there any early infant CI failures? This is the burning question right now. Doctors brag about their successes, but do not brag about their failures! TALES FROM FORMER DEAF PIZZA DRIVERS (series to be run on a weekly basis until list of tales run out) A hearing woman ordered pizza, but specifically asked for a deaf driver. Since I was deaf I was given an address to deliver the pizza to. The woman who ordered the pizza was Tonya Harding, (of the famous Winter Olympics figure skating knee-capping case) who was in hiding from the media! If you are a former Deaf Pizza Driver and have an interesting tale, please share it with: .............................................................. .............................................................. For postings, announcements and employment ad rates, please email for Special Notes, please go to the bottom of this section .............................................................. .............................................................. WHAT IS THAT SUPPOSED TO MEAN? A newspaper story was titled: A mainstreamed student defies the odds to get his diploma Defying the odds, as if it is almost impossible for any deaf student to graduate from high school with a diploma? .............................................................. .............................................................. 31st World's Largest ASL Silent Weekend in 2010 Signing Greeting Cards ASL and Interpreting DVDs Registration for this year's 30th Silent Weekend is closed with over 600 attending.
