Are the deaf employees given opportunities to grow
(and get promoted and given better responsibilities)?

No, said the activist.

 

— advising late-deafened senior citizens to learn ASL

An advisor advised late-deafened senior
citizens – learn ASL. Good idea or bad idea?
ASL, especially at lightning speed, is difficult
to learn. Some deaf people pick it up fast; some
don’t!

The Zebedee Management is a talent agency for
actors, models, and influencers with disabilities,
the deaf, included. Where in USA is it located?
Not in USA; it is in Great Britain.

 

— Dunkin’ says no to a deaf customer

Dunkin’ counter person refused to take off
her mask to allow the deaf customer to read
lips. Angry, the deaf woman confronted the
Dunkin’ manager, who also refused to communicate
via notes. This Dunkin’ is located in California.
We will wait and see what the Dunkin’ headquarters
management has to say.

 

 

— ADA yes from some judges; ADA no from other judges

Are stand-alone websites subject to ADA rules?
Yes, says some judges; no says other judges.
This is why ADA has created a huge industry of
disability law. Not an easy job if ADA
regulations often add up to 1,000 pages!

DeafDigest Mid-Week edition – September 15, 2021

— the Stink and the new TV sign language ad

It was mentioned in DeafDigest over the past weekend
that Giffgaff, a British mobile network, produced a new
TV ad shown in British Sign Language. Helping produce
the new ad was the Stink Studios. Why the Stink? Just the
name of that ad agency; DeafDigest is afraid people may
misunderstand what they are reading about and think
deaf people stink. No way! Deaf people are great; they
do not stink.

 

— the word of mouth

An activist said that businesses normally do not
post accessibility information on their web sites.
This means deaf users must look for captions and/or
sign language on hearing web sites without being told
where to locate! This activist also said word of
mouth is effective.

 

— the European Union snubs the deaf

the the European Union is a group of many
European nations that deals wit political
and economic issues. The Brexit is one
example that the Union had to deal with the
British government. Anyway interpreters for
the deaf was not provided by the European
Union during its recent European Parliament
gathering. It only means one thing – the
deaf people are not important to the
European Union. So very disappointing!

DeafDigest Mid-Week edition – September 14, 2021

— the Deaf Guild

A guild means an association of people for mutual
aid or the pursuit of a common goal. This being
said – it was announced that there is a Deaf Guild
and it is titled:

the Guild Masters of Undaunted

This group describes itself as raiders. Not exactly
what is supposed to mean – because their press
release, coming out of Texas, is lengthy and not
that easy to figure out.

 

— Silent Opera for the deaf

Is there such a thing as Silent Opera for the deaf?
Theatre director Robert Wilson, himself, not deaf,
has produced “Silent Opera” and feels the deaf
in the audience will like the performance because
it is non-verbal. Will the audience (both deaf and
hearing) like it? Hard to say because the performance
lasts seven hours!

 

— The deaf parents and the CI

A blog headine said:

It is NOT evil for deaf parents for not wanting to have
deaf kids to get cochlear implants.

Decisions affecting deaf (and hearing) children are
always parental rights.

DeafDigest Mid-Week edition – September 13, 2021

— one of the world’s best views from a roof

It was mentioned in a recent story that
hotel guests can go up to the rooftop to
look at one of the world’s best views. It
said that viewing Spanish Steps from the
roof of Rome’s Hotel Hassler is awesome.
The owner of Hotel Hassler is Roberto
Wirth and he is deaf.

 

— only leftover from past governor Cuomo’s regime

New York governor Kathy Hochul has replaced all of
past governor Andrew Cuomo’s people with one
exception. That is deaf TV interpreter
Arkady Belozovsky. The newspaper article
mentioned his deafness – but with one
interesting thing – that his first name –
Arkady – was never mentioned! It is strange.

 

— deaf graduates of Risk Management and Insurance

Gallaudet offers a major in Risk Management and Insurance
to train students for jobs in the insurance industry.
Bottom line is – are any deaf high level supervisors
in these insurance jobs – that hearing insurance
employees report to? As of date, DeafDigest does
not know of any such deaf supervisors that came
from Gallaudet. Qualified deaf employees deserve
promotions and opportunities.
