News of the Week

   Swine flu is a serious malady. It ain't funny,
especially so for the deaf of New Zealand.
   The 800 number in New Zealand, urging their
residents to dial in to get more information,
is lacking for the deaf.
   Complained a spokesperson on behalf of the deaf:

the ministry did not appear to have thought of the needs 
of those who could not use the telephone because of their 
hearing disability

..

   A hated acronym is NIMBY, which stands for
"Not in my backyard". And it is especially painful
for Doncaster College for the Deaf in Great Britain.
   This high school-level institution wishes to expand
its campus to erect a new dormitory, new student housing
units, a campus center, a new gymnasium and a new
vocational building.
   The neighbors are screaming "NIMBY." It did not
matter to them that Doncaster College has been
in existence since the 19th century, and is a treasured
part of the city of Doncaster.

..

   Postponement is the name of the game at the
FCC. First they postponed the deadline to convert
analog to digital TV.
   And this one - they have postponed from June
30th to November 12th the deadline for us, the
deaf, to register our 10-digit numbers with
video relay carriers. 
   Why the postponement? FCC says more time is
needed to smooth over the transitional details.

..

   The Gallaudet University athletic department
has an opening for Assistant Head Football Coach
/ Strength &  Conditioning Coordinator.
   It is a full time position. If you are interested,
please scroll all the way down to the Employment Ads
section in the Blue edition.

THE MISSING BLUE VIDEO LINKS

The Blue edition did not have video links;
the ASL signer is away from home and was using
a borrowed computer and a borrowed Internet
server and even a borrowed video application.

It took quite a while to get things
all figured out. Thank you for bearing with
DeafDigest, and below are the Blue edition
links:

http://deafdigest.com/videos/video-sfvsc/
http://deafdigest.com/videos/video-business/



A HEARING LEADER WITH NO BACKGROUND IN DEAFNESS
   Many hearing people that are superintendents
of schools for the deaf or of deaf service agencies
have backgrounds and experience working with the
deaf.
   They take deafness classes at college and have
degrees that qualify them for work with the deaf.
   Many, but not all of them! In one state, a
former florist was appointed as director of
state deaf telecommunications service.
   Did that person have background or experience
with the deaf? No.
   Why was he hired? State politics is the reason.

NO DRAMA CLASSES AT KANSAS SCHOOL FOR THE DEAF
   Some schools for the deaf have drama classes or
have drama clubs. Some schools don't.
   Kansas School for the Deaf (KSD) did not have either
drama classes or a drama club.
   Yet, three deaf individuals went to KSD and then
years later, enjoyed successful careers in drama -
Pat Graybill, Chuck Baird and Juliana Fjeld!
   Other schools with drama clubs do not have
their graduates becoming famous in Deaf Drama but
Kansas did.

A FAMOUS PARK IN BRITISH COLUMBIA
   Nature lovers in British Columbia know all about
the Redwood Park, located in South Surrey.
   This park has 32 different tree species, whose
origins were from many parts of the world.
   The park started when parents gave brothers
David and Peter Brown a 21st birthday gift of a
80 acre plot. The brothers then started to 
collect tree seeds and planted these on the
park grounds. This was way back in the late
19th century.
   Both David and Peter Brown were deaf. To
get an idea of the size of the park, the
Gallaudet campus is 96 acres whereas the park
is 80 acres.


GALLAUDET'S SERIOUS ERROR
   Gallaudet made a serious error. He once spelled
the word "currencey" instead of "currency" on the
coin he was minting.
   Gallaudet minting dollar coins to be circulated in
public as spending money? Yes - but it was
not Gallaudet University, but a man named Elishia 
Gallaudet, an engraver in New Jersey in the
year 1776!
   Not surprisingly, because of the Gallaudet goof,
the value of the misspelled currency is very high
nowadays.
   Again, DeafDigest does not know if Elishia
Gallaudet was related to the famous Gallaudet
family.
 

DELIVERING NEWSPAPERS IN SINGAPORE
   There is a severe shortage of newspaper deliverymen
in Singapore. For some reason no one wants the job
even when jobs are hard to find. Turnover is high among
the newly hired.
   It is so bad that the newspaper is looking hard for
unemployed deaf individuals to become deliverymen.
   The pay is the Singaporean equivalent to $500 per 
month in USA dollars.
   Time will tell if there are deaf takers.


GRANVILLE REDMOND IN ACTION
   Granville Redmond, mentioned in News of the Week,
Blue edition, was a talented actor as well as a
talented painter.
   He appeared on 8 Charlie Chaplin movies. To
see him act in one of these movies, do click on:

http://latimesblogs.latimes.com/culturemonster/2009/06/ocma-redmond.html

   Just scroll down and you will see the youtube 
click.
   Happy clicking!


A CONTEST AMONG HEARING PARTICIPANTS
   At the recent International Student Convention,
which took place at Warrensburg, MO, one of the
student contests was "interpretation for the
deaf."
   Is it a sign language contest for future
interpreters? Or is it a sign language
reading contest?
   DeafDigest is mighty curious to know what
the contest rules are.   


A SHOCKED PAGEANT WINNER
   The winner of Miss Cheltenham Pageant is Victoria
Ilina. Cheltenham is a town in Great Britain.
   Victoria originally finished as runner ups.
The contestant ahead of her was the winner. But after
a month the title was taken away from her because
of her repeated violations of Pageant rules. It was
then given to a shocked Victoria.
   Victoria is deaf.


TALES FROM FORMER DEAF PIZZA DRIVERS

(CEUs) will have around 150 hours of seminars to choose from.

regional or national conferences offering you so many hours
of classes as inexpensively as the Silent Weekends.  Just
check them out!

Final details will be online beginning in August but the cost

per person may be as low as $149 per person and exhibit tables
at $150.

Sign language DVDs are available online at http://www.DrSign.com -

Hot DeafNews boring, but important!

   A deaf Kansas woman has filed a lawsuit saying
that her attempted 911 call, made at night,  asking 
for police assistance, was not answered.
   The 911 center was closed at night, forcing deaf
residents to reach the county dispatch office or go
to the police station in person to use a special
red telephone. And compounding this issue was that
all police officers at night were out on the streets.

Deaf Picture of the Week:

How many of them would you recognize?

http://deafdigest.com/nysd55/

..

Question of the week:

Q. Could a deaf person be hypnotized?

A. Yes. Way back in the seventies there was a
professional hypnotist that worked with deaf
patients. Ever since he passed away, no other
professional hypnotist, capable of working with
the deaf, have surfaced.



send your questions to mailto:barry@deafdigest.com

the most interesting questions may be answered
in future DeafDigest editions. Thank you.

..

Wish List of the Week:

that every single county, every single municipality,
every single hamlet, every single village in USA
be fully equipped with deaf-compatible 911 systems
that will operate on all hours of the day, every
day of the year

..

DeafHistory - Looking Back:

Year 1037 - Ibn Sina, the Persian philosopher and physician,
passes away. Considered to be the brightest person of his
era, he had this philosophy that the deaf would always lead
a life of error, and would be beyond help and assistance

..

Deaf and the Money:

$466,628 - a check given by AT&T of Tennessee to the
Tennessee Regulatory Authority, to operate the
state Relay Service and the Telecommunications Devices 
Access Program

..

DeafNumbers of the Week:

When the AARP screams on the steps of Capitol Hill, senators
and representatives listen. When we scream, we only scream
at ourselves. Why?

AARP has:
-  1,100 full time employees
-  22 registered lobbyists
-  44 policy staff members
-  4,000 chapters
-  28 state offices
-  up to 50,000 daily membership renewals
-  up to 10,000 daily new members enrolled

All of our deaf organizations, as pooled, do not even
equal a fraction of what AARP has.
