Don’t Miss It – World Premiere of Universal Signs!
http://www.universalsignsmovie.com
Keswick Theater, Glenside, PA

A groundbreaking “silent” film, presented in mesmerizing American
Sign Language (ASL) with English subtitles, Universal Signs
touches the hearts and minds of hearing and Deaf audiences alike.

It was the winner of the Audience Award for Best Feature Film
at the Philadelphia Film Festival.

Date: Saturday, May 30, 2009 at two special screenings
Time: Matinee at 1PM and Evening at 7PM
Location: Keswick Theater, Glenside, PA 19038

Meet the Stars! Opportunities to get autographs and candid photos
with your favorite Deaf actors: Anthony Natale, Deanne Bray and
Troy Kotsur!

Visit http://www.universalsignsmovie.com for all the details and
to Reserve your Tickets Today!

The film was a sell-out at the Philadelphia Film Festival.  We are
hoping to repeat its success at the World Premiere!

Universal Signs Story Synopsis:
After the death of his fiancée’s daughter while in his care, Andrew
(Anthony Natale, Mr. Holland’s Opus), a Deaf artist, becomes a
prisoner of his own mind.

Tormented day and night by memories and self-blame, Andrew falls in
a downward spiral of depression and anger that alienates everyone
around him.

It is only through a serendipitous friendship and new love with Mary
(Sabrina Lloyd, Sports Night) that Andrew is able to sense the life
around him, forgive himself, rediscover his muse and experience the
transformative power of love.

An original score by Academy Award® winner Joseph Renzetti propels
the story along with stellar supporting performances from Margot
Kidder (Superman), Robert Picardo (Star Trek: Voyager), Deanne Bray
(Sue Thomas: FBEye) and Ashlyn Sanchez (Crash).

EDISON: TRUE OR FALSE
Thomas A. Edison, who was deaf, was the world’s
best inventor. He had over 1,000 patents.
He invented the phonograph. He could not hear
the phonograph, but wanted to make sure it worked.
He put his teeth on the table next to phonograph
to feel the vibration to make sure it worked!

DEAF ZOO IN PAKISTAN
Is there a Deaf Zoo in Pakistan? A silly
question, yes!
But a hotel in Pakistan has many deaf employees
and there was an advertisement in newspapers and
magazines, asking tourists to come and stay at
the hotel.
The ad asks the tourists to watch the deaf
in action at the hotel.
This ad is very insulting. We, the deaf, do
not live in a zoo.

– for ASL News version, please click on:
http://www.deafdigest.com/zoo.htm

(for your convenience, video links are posted on top
of each DeafDigest edition)

LANGUAGE OR CULTURE?
Is American Sign Language considered a language
or considered a culture at Tufts University in
Massachusetts?
ASL is not allowed to be used as a foreign language
credit, but instead is allowed to be used as a
credit to meet culture requirements.
DeafDigest does not understand this culture rationale.
There is much more to culture than just using the
language involved, and so ASL by itself, is a language
and not as a culture.

AN ISOLATED DEAF CHILD’S CATCH 22 SITUATION
This is a sad situation, but not unique;
in fact, it is pretty much common everywhere.
A deaf child is the only deaf student in
a huge public school. The only person he could
sign with is his interpreter that follows
him all day, everywhere.
He was not comfortable about being followed
all day, and wanted to see a school counselor
to complain about it. But who would interpret
the student’s complaint – the very same
interpreter that shadows him all day!
A Catch 22 situation.

WE ARE NOT AN ALTERNATIVE
A newspaper story was like this:

The Deaflympics are an alternative to the Olympics
for athletes who are deaf.

This is wrong. The correct statement should be
like this:

The Olympics are an alternative to our Deaflympics
for athletes who are not deaf

THE DEAF IN A BARBER SHOP
In many neighborhoods, the barber shop serves
as the center of social life, much more so than
the local coffee house or the local watering
hole.
Do deaf people get together in a barber
shop? Not really, but there is an interesting
story.
In Buffalo, NY way back in 1939, a group of
deaf men met at a barber shop, owned by a
deaf barber. They agreed to start a new social
club for the deaf called Buffalo Club of
the Deaf.
This club continues to exist to this day!

CHANGE OF TIMES: A DIFFERENCE OF 9 YEARS

Nine years ago, DeafDigest asked this question:

Do we have too many national deaf newspapers?

At that time, we had as many as a half dozen
deaf tabloid newspapers.
Times have changed. We only have one national
deaf newspaper.
The most famous deaf newspaper – The Silent
News is no longer in existence.

MYSTERY DONORS
There was a story about mystery donors donating
millions of dollars to a select group of colleges.
These donors wanted to keep their identities
a secret (for whatever reasons of their own).
Not that so at Gallaudet. Twice in recent years
Gallaudet has been the beneficiary of multi-million
dollar donations by individuals’ estates. And
these individuals have had no connection, whatsoever
to Gallaudet and of deafness!

AN ELECTRICAL COCHLEAR IMPLANT
Is there such a thing as an electrical
cochlear implant?
Of course not, and it was quite unsettling
to see a newspaper story saying that a deaf
child received an electrical implant.
If the implant is electrical, the person
may be “electrocuted” to death! Implant
devices are electronic, not electrical –
two different things.
Ah, so, these careless newspaper reporting!

30th World’s Largest ASL Silent Weekend in 2009

Signing Greeting Cards
ASL and Interpreting DVDs

The 30th Silent Weekend in June 2009 will offer interpreters
more than 2 CEUs. A Legal Interpreting track is being featured.

Over 100 hours of classes also ASL and ITP teachers, and beginning,
intermediate and advanced sign language and ITP students. Many
interpreters use this to get all of their RID required CEUs in a one-stop
venue at significant cost savings.  Get a group as small as five to
register at huge savings of $140 each!

Crom Saunders, Keith Wann, Trix Bruce and many nationally
known presenters are featured.

Check http://www.DrSign.com for details

Sign language DVDs are available online at http://www.DrSign.com
Consider “Oh See, Can You Say?” by Maureen Longo Tuccelli.  She shows how
to make an excellent voicing product using a clip of Peter Cook.  This
75-minute DVD  is excellent for ITP teachers and students!

“Oh See, Can You See? shows dozens of grammatical principles
and will help ITP and ASL students understand what they see. This
is a 55-minute DVD.

The 8th Florida/Alaska Motorcycle Charity Run is scheduled July 1-26,
2009.

See http://www.AlaskaBikeRun.com for updates and photos.
These trips will take place every year so why not make plans to
join us now in 2009?

Hot DeafNews boring, but important!

Parallel research teams, one in Spain, working on families with

mice with hearing loss, have come up with a joint
conclusion.

Deaf Picture of the Week:

A “perfect” hearing aid
http://blog.modernmechanix.com/2009/01/31/diminutive-super-ear-for-deaf/

Question of the week:

Q. Why don’t we have Deaf Monopoly or other Deaf Games?

A. Several deaf entrepreneurs have attempted to market
their Deaf Games but with mixed results. It is expensive
to develop and to market a Deaf Game and such games must
be sold in bulk volumes to reap a decent profit.

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 all hearing people in the world would explain
clearly via hand written notes when dealing with
deaf people on complex issues – instead of just
saying “just do this” or “just do that”. Reluctance
from deaf people on being robots often gets hearing
people angry.

DeafHistory – Looking Back:

Year 1948 – first TV broadcast of a sign language
church service took place at St. Matthew’s Lutheran
Church for the Deaf in New York

..

Deaf and the Money:

cost to win votes in a political campaign

– for a hearing candidate for Congress – approximately 2 (or more)
millions of dollars

– for Gary Malkowski, that won a MPP seat in Canada –
approximately few Canadian dollars!

DeafNumbers of the Week:

for interpreters that take RID retraining programs, they
earn .75 CEUs per class.
