News of the Week

   President Obama has issued many directives
lately. One such directive is to help Americans
with disabilities, with respect to housing,
community supports and independent living
arrangements. 
   DeafDigest assumes Obama has the deaf in mind
when he stresses support for the disabled. 

..

   Does Spain discriminate against the deaf?
A DeafDigest subscriber was watching TVE
(Spanish National TV) on her DirectTV and
learned much to her horror that:

- a deaf person cannot go on a cruise because
of his deafness. "Security reasons" was the
excuse the cruise line spokesperson said

- that the deaf cannot vote during last week's
European Union elections 

..

   In Pakistan, deaf individuals who could be able
to send many messages per day via their cell phones,
may not be able to do so any more.
   Cell phone carriers would normally give discounts 
for deaf users of cell phones. This practice may
be stopped because of a hefty tax increase. Would
the deaf be willing to send out pages if they have
to pay more?

..

   The city of Houston, in Texas, lacks basic services
for the deaf. This is what the deaf community is saying
and they have staged a protest in front of city hall
last week.

..

   Whats' the update on the digital TV changeover?
Said a deaf media pro:

We Deaf people get good quality video on our videophones 
while hearing people have trouble hearing each other and 
need technology like this

..

   The Gallaudet University athletic department
has an another opening. It is for Football Coordinator/
Assistant Head Track Coach.
   This is in addition to the continued posting of
Assistant Head Football Coach / Strength &  Conditioning
Coordinator.
   Both are full time positions. If you are interested in
either position, please scroll all the way down to the

THE TELEPHONE AND THE AGBELL

   We all know that Alexander Graham Bell won the patent
for the first telephone. We also know that he married
a deaf woman, was interested in the oral education of
the deaf, and that the AgBell was named after him.
   What would have happened if he did not win the 
telephone patent? Bell raced against another man, Elisha
Gray for the first telephone patent. Bell arrived at the
US Patents Office, beating Gray by a few minutes in 1876!
   Elisha Gray Association for the Deaf? No way, Gray
was not interested in the deaf. Bell was!

A DEAF TAXI DRIVER?
   Do we know of any taxi drivers that are deaf?
We have heard of a few deaf drivers that drove
taxis for a short time before quitting.
   The best taxi drivers in the world live in
New York City. These taxi drivers drive like
a wild man in very heavy traffic.
   There was a deaf man who drove a taxi cab
in New York City for eight years. He then quit
to become a printer. That was a long time ago,
way back in 1950's.

THE END OF THE KODACHROME
   Kodak has stopped production of the beloved
Kodachrome film. 
   Today's deaf filmmakers have it easy; they
will know quickly if their digital film shots
came out good or bad. If bad, they can re-shoot
a scene to make it perfect.
   Not always that so many years ago. Ernest
Marshall, a deaf filmmaker with a few deaf
16mm films to his credit, was not so lucky.
   He would shoot deaf film scenes with his
16mm movie camera with Kodachrome film. And
then send the film to a lab for processing.
   Time involved in mailing and processing would
often take weeks. If the scene was bad, he had
to edit it out or accept it as is - or even
worse, to recall the deaf actors for a retake,
forcing them to remember their lines!

BECOMING DEAF FROM SUDDEN DEAFNESS SYNDROME
   We, the deaf, have became deaf because of different
reasons.
   One of the reasons is a rare type of deafness
called Sudden Deafness Syndrome. DeafDigest editor
knows of few deaf individuals who lost their hearing
that way. They would go to bed at night as a hearing
person and then wake up in the morning as a deaf
person. 
   Or even beginning a telephone call as a hearing
person and ending the call as a deaf person.
   This syndrome is rare. Very few people become
deaf that way.


A ROCKER'S STRANGE RESPONSE
   Def Leppard, not deaf, is a British rocker with
a band with popular songs.
   His original name was Deaf Leopard. In a recent
interview he was asked if he would put "a" back into
Def.
   He said:

Well, that's a good point. If it would have happened, 
it would have happened a long time ago.

   Is he saying he will never lose his hearing
despite his constant exposure to rock music?


SOCIAL LIFE AT COLLEGES
   At Gallaudet and at NTID/RIT social life among the
deaf is no problem. There are many deaf students around
to choose friends and to mingle with them. To a lesser
extent, it is possible at CSUN, where approximately
200 deaf students attend classes.
   What about other colleges? Many colleges have small
numbers of deaf students; it may be as few as 2 or 3
or as many as 25.
   Let us take Hobart and Smith Colleges located in
Geneva, NY, which is a small town. How many deaf
students, if any, attend that college? And would
these deaf students find social opportunities in
a small town?


A TALKING ELEVATOR
   Do elevators talk? Well, at a hotel in Watkins
Glen, NY, the elevators will beep and then tell us
that you are standing too close to the door and for
you to move away from it.
   Yes, a deaf person would not know that the elevator
talks. Only way we would know would be a captioned
read out display mounted on the elevator wall. Such
devices do not exist, just yet.



"COMPLIMENTING" AN INTERPRETER
   An interpreter told DeafDigest that it is a compliment
when no one thanks her at the end of the interpreting
assignment.
   She said it used to bother her when no one thanked
her after her assignments. But the more she thought
about it, lack of thanks is actually a compliment!



TALES FROM FORMER DEAF PIZZA DRIVERS 

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

I moved to a new state, leaving my old job as a driver
for one Domino's Pizza place, but took my Domino's uniform
with me. I went to the new Domino's place at the new location
and asked the manager for an application form. I took
the application form and left the shop. I then went to
my car to fill out the application form, and at the same
time changed into the Domino's uniform and gave the
manager the filled-out application form. The shocked
manager then hired me on the spot and asked me to work
the evening shift the same day. It was a local high
school's prom night which helped me earn high tips!

interesting tale, please share it with:

WHAT IS THAT SUPPOSED TO MEAN?

a newspaper said:

the boy became a deaf-mute because of an accident


Huh! Before the accident, this hearing boy could
talk normally. Is the newspaper saying that the
boy, after the accident, lost both his hearing
and his ability to talk?

DeafLibrary Page of the Week

Using interpreters - tips

http://deafdigest.com/using-interpreters-tips/

Bonnie Lyn Barker, Amanda Lujan, Lena Stavely & Sarah 
Patterson collaborated on a neat article on how should
the hearing, as well as the deaf, use our interpreters.

This article was featured in the most recent edition of
the New Mexico Progress, a magazine published by the New 
Mexico School for the Deaf. School superintendent Ron
Stern gave DeafDigest permission to reprint this article.

DeafDigest editor has read many, many articles regarding
the use of interpreters, and this article is the best
one.

(on a rotating basis, a different DeafLibrary Page topic 
will be featured every week) 

..

Deaf Picture of the Week:

ASL-signing or just gesturing?

The picture was hung on the walls of the Women's Rights
National Historical Park, Seneca Falls, NY. For some
reason DeafDigest editor was fascinated by the picture.

Was the woman speaker signing in ASL or was she gesturing?

You decide.

http://deafdigest.com/asl-or-gesturing/

..

Question of the week:

Q. at the museum on the grounds of the Women's Rights 
National Historical Park, Seneca Falls, NY, a question
was posted in one exhibit booth. It asked, of women:

what do you want to be?

- president of USA
- carpenter
- firefighter
- surgeon
- park ranger
- computer operator

A. We have many deaf carpenters, some deaf volunteer
firefighters (limited roles in fighting fires),
few deaf physicians, but not sure if any of them
are surgeons, a few deaf park rangers and many
deaf computer operators. We do not, however, have
a deaf president!



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:

the same museum (see Question of the week above)
stressed that there should be equal pay for equal work
and also of pay equity. The wish is that equal pay for
equal work and of pay equity applies to all deaf
individuals that have all kinds of jobs in USA.

..

DeafHistory - Looking Back:

four deaf women have been inducted into the
National Women's Hall of Fame in Seneca Falls, NY, 

these women are:

- Helen Keller, who needs no introduction to us
- Juliette Gordon Low, founder of Girls Scouts
- Ruth Fulton Benedict - famous anthropologist
- Anne Jump Cannon - astronomer  

..

Deaf and the Money:

value of gold ore - $250.00

there is a hard of hearing man panning for gold in the
many waterfalls areas in the Watkins Glen State Park
in New York. He showed DeafDigest editor some gold ore
pieces and said each ore, that he calls it 'New York
gold' is valued at $250.00 on the market. He said that
when he takes off his hearing aid glasses, he is very
deaf but when he puts it on, he is very hard of hearing!

..

DeafNumbers of the Week:

a few deaf students in the Elmira/Watkins Glen
area attend Rochester School for the Deaf.

This was the comment made by a teacher of a special
education program in the Watkins Glen, NY area.
She was moonlighting at her summer job with
a Watkins Glen souvenir store. She formerly
taught at St Mary's School for the Deaf before
transferring to her present teaching position.
