DeafDigest – 31 October 2014

DeafDigest Mid-Week edition, October 31, 2014

— Forbes magazine scolds anti-deaf human resources manager

Important business people read the Forbes Magazine.
It is the #1 magazine with them, equal to the
Wall Street Journal. There was an article about a
NTID graduate applying for a job. The article was
titled – Hiring Managers that behave badly. The
manager did not want to hire the deaf. He went
ahead with the interview to show the world that
he does not “discriminate.” The interview was a
joke and a fake. The deaf person was not hired.
DeafDigest hopes that NTID graduate was able to
find a better job elsewhere.

 

— using an interpreter during a crime

Could a deaf robber be using an interpreter while
committing a crime? Paul Coombs, a deaf criminal
from Dundee, Scotland, broke into an apartment
to steal money from a victim. To communicate
with the victim, he used his interpreter, who
just followed him! Yes, he was arrested and
sentenced to 14 months in jail. Did the
interpreter go to jail, as an accomplice?
DeafDigest editor does not know.

 
— communicating with a robot

Could we communicate with a robot? Deaf people
entering Orchard Supply Hardware store in
San Jose, California, will be greeted by a
robot. How to communicate with a robot?
This robot has a video that could communicate
with the deaf. Since Orchard Supply Hardware
is part of the Lowe’s chain, we probably will
see robots in every store in the near future.

DeafDigest – 30 October 2014

DeafDigest Mid-Week edition, October 30, 2014

 
— council meeting stopped few seconds after it started

DeafDigest mentioned few times that deaf councilwoman
Marisa Salzer (Montesano, Washington) has been battling
the city council for an interpreter for council meetings.
The council refused but was forced to hire an interpreter
under orders of the Washington Human Rights Commission.
Anyway, the council meeting started with an interpreter
but it stopped immediately few seconds later. She
complained of interpreter’s bad signing skills! Council
said interpreter is qualified. She said interpreter is
not certified.

 

— a real dumb deaf criminal

Many hearing criminals are dumb, the reason why cops
find it easy to catch them. We also have a few dumb
deaf criminals. Fouad Soussi, age 20, is deaf and
is a dumb criminal. He was the top drug dealer on
the streets of West London, UK, and was caught when
he posted online of his selfies. In these selfies
he was holding up bags of drugs. The judge sentenced
him to 5 years in prison.

 
— a deaf Halloween movie

Halloween is coming up and there are many horror
movies shown on TV. What is the best Deaf Halloween
movie, and even also what is the craziest Halloween
movie? It is Deafula, written, produced and directed
by Peter Wolf, who also acted the Deafula role in 1975.

Said a critic:
movie is black and white and contains no screaming
victims and no Transylvanian accents, and it is all-ASL,
and it is strange that Deafula wears a big, plastic
clownish nose!

DeafDigest – 29 October 2014

DeafDigest Mid-Week edition, October 29, 2014

 

 

— Noise in a coffee cafe with deaf coffee drinkers

In Fremont, Ohio, there is noise among deaf coffee
drinkers. Noise? It actually is NOISE, which stands
for Northern Ohio Interpreting Services and Education.
NOISE is hosting this coffee event for the deaf for
the first time. Deaf and Noise?

 
— difficult to find deaf Gallaudet presidential candidates

Gallaudet has had these deaf presidents – Jordan, Davila
and Hurwitz. Easy to find a next deaf president to
replace Hurwitz who will be retiring? No. About 8
years ago there was a survey to find a deaf candidate
experienced in higher education and with a doctorate.
After looking for them in colleges all over the world,
only 27 candidates could be identified! Very possibly
in 2015, this same small pool exists.

 

— apartment landlord forbids deaf residents

Could a landlord tell deaf people they are not allowed
to reside in his apartment building? Discrimination?
Yes, but it is happening in Nampa, Idaho! There is a
lawsuit that has involved the city mayor, the apartment
landlord, the city fire marshall and the city deputy fire
marshall. This discrimination against the deaf was
revealed during this lawsuit discussions. A big mess
out there in Nampa.

DeafDigest – 28 October 2014

DeafDigest Mid-Week edition, October 28, 2014

 

 

— hospitals face interpreting crisis

More hospitals are aware of interpreting needs
for the deaf; they know where to find interpreters,
and are also aware that many deaf people hate
Video Remote Interpreting. Yet, there is a huge
crisis. Many interpreters do not understand
medical terms; wrong signs on medical terms could
be fatal for deaf patients. This was the issue
raised by the NPR, a news distributor.

 
— Starbucks helping the deaf

A group of deaf people filed a lawsuit, accusing
Starbucks of discriminating against the deaf.
Starbucks is denying it and is fighting the
lawsuit. Does Starbucks really help the deaf?
In Great Britain, the Starbucks Community Fund
has donated funds for a deaf advocate so that
she could give deaf awareness workshops at
local social service agencies.

 

— a game for children to measure hearing or deafness

Sound Scouts, a small Australian company, has invented
a special game for children. The game has two purposes.
First is for children to have fun and enjoy themselves.
Second is for parents and teachers to find out if
the child has a hearing loss or not. Not sure how it
works but it has something to do with children
responding to beeps that come up while playing.

DeafDigest – 27 October 2014

DeafDigest Mid-Week edition, October 27, 2014

 

— faked deafness in a relationship

Would a young hearing woman fake her deafness in
order to win the heart of a young hearing man?
It happened in Kodiak, Alaska and it is part
of the “My Crazy Love” TV series. It is not
known, however, if she has continued to fake
her deafness or if they are still dating
each other. Guess it happens in Alaska because
mates are hard to find, and competition is
fierce!

 
— Derrick Coleman injured while warming up

Derrick Coleman, Seattle Seahawks, will play
no more football this season. While warming up
for the game against St Louis Cardinals, he
broke his foot. It was not football that was
dangerous to him; it was just exercising his
legs that was dangerous! Hope he will recover
100 percent and play again in 2015.

 

— sign language lessons in a newspaper

Have we ever read a newspaper, or even a newsletter,
and turn to a page that has sign language lessons?
The government of Miyoshi, a town in Japan, is
publishing sign language lessons in the community
newsletter. The Japanese Federation of the Deaf
is happy about it.

Top stories about the deaf:

The National Association of Citizens Advice Bureaux
received a grant to train volunteers, fluent in
British Sign Language. These volunteers, upon
training, will be able to serve the deaf community
in a variety of roles. Areas to be served are
Wolverhampton, Birmingham, Derby and Coventry.

What is Deaf and what is deaf? We all know what
both terms mean. A student at University of
Nebraska wanted to make a clarification in the
campus newspaper. He said deaf is for those that
can’t hear, and that Deaf is for those that
wish for a cultural identification.

NTID has won a $540,000 grant for three years.
Goal is to see if low public expectations of
deaf capabilities and skills would impact on
the way they learn (or do not learn) math.

University of York, in Great Britain, has mandated
that captions appear on all campus videos – even
if there are no deaf people around!

Going on right now is a hot debate in Vermont.
Issue is – how will the 650 impacted deaf children,
formerly served statewide by the closed Vermont
Center for the Deaf and Hard of Hearing be
taught. Vermont has 14 counties across the state.

RICH HEARING CONSULTANTS, POOR DEAF CONSULTANTS
Are hearing consultants rich and are deaf consultants
poor?
As an example, a hearing senator loses congressional
election, and is out of job. No worry. He becomes a
consultant and becomes a rich man with many consulting
contracts.
A deaf person loses a big job. He then becomes a
consultant. But will he become a rich man? No.
This is sad!

LOOKING AT PEOPLE AT THE BAR
A hearing person can enter the bar, sit down,
and just listen.
Examples are – a pro athlete discussing his new
contract with his agent; an author discussing his
new book with his book editor; a boyfriend telling
his girlfriend that it is time to break up, etc.
A deaf person knows nothing, and uses his eyes
to imagine things with them.

Top stories about the deaf:

An article in an Australian newspaper said that
sign language says things that spoken languages
can’t!

A deaf man from British Canada, in need of
mental health counseling, has accused a CI
manufacturer of planting spy listening
equipment in his CI. The judge shot him down.

The CSUN Deaf Education program was awarded
a $1.25m grant from the federal government
for its deaf education teacher preparation program

In South Africa, it was learned that out of 1200
teachers of the deaf, only 90 are qualified in
South African sign language

Do deaf people learn better online? This is what
NTID is trying to find out, thanks to a $400,000
federal grant.

WHAT DO INTERPRETERS HATE?

school districts desperately hiring non-qualified
interpreters off the streets when qualified
interpreters cannot be found!

COMMENTS FROM A CART OPERATOR – continuing series

As I was watching a television show from the 1960s that was captioned
using “live” or realtime captions, I was thinking about how unfair it
is to people who rely on those captions to understand what is taking
place.

Some television broadcasters are trying to save money by captioning
old dramas and comedies using realtime technology. They find that it
is cheaper to use a realtime captioner instead of doing it the
correct way and using post-production captioning.

Unfortunately, so much of the show was lost that it was virtually not
understandable. Roll-up captioning was used rather than pop-on
captioning. You could not tell who was speaking, and there were many,
many, many errors. Even the names of the characters were spelled
wrong.

Realtime captioning must be used to provide access to a live event,
but there is no reason to use realtime captioning for a show that has
been around for nearly 50 years. In all those years, I can’t imagine
that they could not find the time to caption it properly.

If you see a show where realtime captioning is being used when
post-production captioning is the appropriate choice, please let your
television station and cable or satellite providers know. They may
not understand how much is being missed or transcribed incorrectly.

A PET PEEVE OF BEING DEAF

hearing people think that all deaf people are the
same – ie, bumping into an ill-mannered deaf person
and the hearing people think all deaf people are
ill-mannered!

(Every deaf person, no matter if it is ASL, oral,
Cued Speech, late-deafened, hearing aid user, CI user,
etc, share these pet peeves. You may laugh or cry)

DeafDigest – 24 October 2014

DeafDigest Mid-Week edition, October 24, 2014

 

— a big loss for Deaf Smith

Deaf Smith, a deaf fighter, became famous for his battles
against Mexico in the early 19th century. In 1835, he
climbed on a big tree in Texas to spy on the movements
of Mexican soldiers. 179 years later, this famous
big tree that Deaf Smith climbed up, became weak
because of lack of rain water in the area. This fallen
tree was on the list of Famous Trees of Texas. This
is a big historical loss for Deaf Smith. See the
pictures at:
http://35.182.75.222/deaf-smith-climbed-on-that-tree/

 

— a different way for the deaf to vote on election day

A leader of the disabled has been urging the local
electoral group to allow the deaf to vote – in a
different way. Instead of ballots listing the
names of candidates, pictures of candidates would
be shown. Why? Many deaf people can’t read and
would not know the candidates if they had to
read their names on the ballot! It is not happening
in USA, but in Botswana, where many deaf people
lack education.
— free college tuition and fees for the deaf

College is expensive, but an investment for the future.
Well, many young people cannot afford these college costs
and as a result, either drop out or seek jobs that do
not require a college education. Well, for the deaf
in Odisha, a state in India, the deaf will not pay
college costs. Just wish the same can be said for
students attending Gallaudet and NTID.

DeafDigest – 23 October 2014

DeafDigest Mid-Week edition, October 23, 2014

 

— the Deaf World Series

Possibly for the first time in baseball history,
the World Series has a real deaf connection.
It is Dummy Taylor, whose first real name was
Luther. He pitched for the New York Giants in
the early 1900’s. The team later became San Francisco
Giants. He was born in Kansas, not too far from
Kansas City, MO. As a pitcher, he was one of the
best during his time. And he invented signs
that the catchers and coaches still use these days.
Did he ever pitch in the World Series? Unfortunately,
no.

 

— a confession by a job placement specialist for the deaf

In a newspaper story, a job placement specialist, from
Wisconsin, said hearing employers reject deaf about
20 times before a deaf person is finally hired. It
is the same with successful deaf attorneys, deaf
engineers, deaf architects, deaf scientists, etc.
They faced rejections, rejections and rejections
before they were finally hired.

 
— ASL not important to a major magazine

Washingtonian is a major magazine that covers the
Washington, DC metro area. A recent edition
gave advice for readers that want to learn a new
language. The magazine suggested Arabic, Farsi,
French, German, Greek, Italian, Mandarin, Russian,
Spanish, Swahili. It did not suggest ASL? It is
disappointing because the deaf population in the
Washington, DC metro area is one of the highest
among metro areas.

— a deaf role model in Australia

A couple of times DeafDigest mentioned Australia’s famed deaf
truck driver Jim Ashley. One of the stories is at:

http://deafdigest.com/deaf-australian-hall-of-famer-jim-ashley/

Anyway, DeafDigest received email from a proud deaf Australian,
saying that Jim is a role model in the Deaf Community. He
explained that discrimination is so bad against the deaf;
many hearing people think deaf people cannot do anything,
and that Jim is the living proof that the deaf can!

 

— the fourth Gallaudet football player to become a pro

It was announced that the Florida Blacktips of the new
Fall Experimental Football League has signed Gallaudet’s
Adham Talaat to a contract. He makes his pro debut this
Friday against Boston Brawlers at Harvard Stadium.
The past Gallaudet players who played pro football were
Bilbo Monaghan, Memphis Tigers (1932); Ed Gobble,
Virginia Sailors (1967) and Tony Tatum, Utah Blaze &
Cleveland Gladiators (2013-2014). Adham’s new teammates
played at Oklahoma, UCLA, Miami, Nebraska, Missouri,
Georgia, etc, these mighty NCAA football powers.

 
— most important deaf person in Microsoft

Who is the most important deaf person in Microsoft?
It is Jenny Lay-Flurrie, leader of the Trusted Experiences
Team. What does she do? Responsible for accessibility,
privacy, and online safety. If a deaf person cannot access
Microsoft software, or has privacy invaded or felt
threatened by hackers online, then Jenny worries about it!

DeafDigest Mid-Week edition, October 21, 2014

 
— Iceland removes an insulting deaf word

To keep up with the times, Iceland has changed some
words in its law books. For many years, in the
law book, the word deaf-mute was used. Not any
more – deaf people are now described as hearing
impaired. Maybe Iceland should have changed to
a better word for us, but at least it is no
longer deaf-mute!

 

— recognizing deaf big contributions to baseball

The World Series begins today. May the best team
win. And we should recognize the big contributions
of our past deaf major leaguers. Dummy Hoy invented
three signals – out, safe, ball. Dummy Taylor invented
coaches’ signals and the catchers’ signals. We see coaches
use hand signals for hitters and baserunners. And
when the catchers flash these hidden finger signals,
one finger, two fingers, three fingers and four
fingers, the pitchers know what to throw.

 

— a very cold Sinclair response to a non-captioning complaint

The Sinclair Broadcast Group sent a letter to
DeafDigest editor, in response to the posting at
http://deafdigest.com/mid-week-news/20140818/

It was Sinclair that carried the non-captioned
ABC football game broadcast for airing in the central
Pennsylvania areas. The tone of the brief letter was
extremely C-O-L-D. To view the letter, go to:

http://deafdigest.com/cold-response-from-sinclair-on-noncaptioned-for-deaf-football-game/

Not even a warm “thank you” response! And it is almost
November; the football game took part in August, two
months ago. A turtle-like response to a non-captioning
complaint!

— a deaf pizza truck tour of USA

Russ and Melody Stein, both deaf, want you to taste the
pizza that is served at the Mozzeria in San Francisco.
They are now on a tour of USA, stopping at some cities
so that people can taste the Mozzeria pizza. How good
are their pizzas? Yelp San Francisco says:

Everything about this place is literally amazing. The
quality of the food is perfection. The service is fantastic

— Japan manufactured a Deaf Car

Japan builds a lot of cars, including Mazdas. And at one
time Mazda built a Deaf Car. It was the 1970 Mazda RX500,
but why was it a Deaf Car? The car speed was supposed
to be very fast despite its small engine size. Not just
fast, but very loud noise from the engine. For that
reason, the rear lights were green in color. This
was to warn the hearing drivers of full running speed by
a deaf driver. Weird? Yes!

 

 

 

— Rochester Thumbs Down on some political candidates

Election Day is coming up next month. Many political
candidates caption their political ads. Again many
political candidates don’t. For that reason, the
Rochester Democrat & Chronicle, which is famous for
its weekly Thumbs up and Thumbs down column, just
Thumbed Down these political candidates that did not
caption their political ads. Speaking of Thumbs Up
and Thumbs Down, the Silent News, in the past, copied
the idea and almost got sued by an angry person!

Top stories about the deaf:

Thirteen schools for the deaf in Ghana may close
if the government does not continue to fund the
operations. This is the fear expressed by the
Ghana National Association of the Deaf.

A story was run about the Sanchez family
in South Los Angeles teaching ASL in Spanish
for Latinos that want to learn signs to be
able to communicate with their deaf children.

The Senate District 11 of Colorado has three candidates. One of the three
candidates is
Norman Dawson. He is deaf.

What is the status of mental health care for
deaf children in Great Britain? Not too good
only because there are so few mental health
professionals that know how to communicate with the deaf. This an issue in a
blog that
was posted on the internet.

When Kansas City Royals played against Baltimore
Orioles for the chance to advance to the World
Series, a deaf fan was honored for his contributions
to youth deaf baseball. It was James Jones and
the Royals gave him a ticket to the best seat
in the stadium.

STAFF MEETING WITHOUT INTERPRETER
A deaf person is employed in a small company
(under 15 employees).
ADA only covers companies with more than 15
employees.
That company asked for a staff meeting to
discuss important issues. But the company
cannot afford to pay for the interpreter.
The boss wrote a strict outline on paper
on issues to be discussed during the staff
meeting. And hearing employees must follow
the script, and cannot go off the point.
During that staff meeting, the deaf employee
was able to follow the outline.
This is not the best way but better than
nothing!

WHAT DO INTERPRETERS HATE?

being assigned to a new student at the last minute
without knowing what he needs in the classroom

COMMENTS FROM A CART OPERATOR – continuing series

In order to become advocates for quality captioning, we must understand the
differences between good and bad captioning. Some people may think that some
captioners are very bad spellers. However, occasionally the problem is the
result of a technical glitch rather than the captioner inputting the
wrong words.

If the captions have many missing or wrong letters or have many nonsense
symbols, it could be a poor video signal or some sort of transmission or
reception problem that is causing the problem with the captions.

If you have a problem with garbled captions on a particular show, try viewing
the captions on a different television in your home. You could ask a neighbor
to check the captions in their home. If the neighbor is having the same
problem, you should notify the station and your cable or satellite provider.

If you don’t have a neighbor to check with, you should go ahead and notify your
cable or satellite provider so that they can find the source of the problem.

The more we work together to improve the quality of captioning, the better it
will be.

A PET PEEVE OF BEING DEAF

turning on a TV set and not knowing immediately if
the program is being captioned or if there is a long
delay in getting the captions up on the screen

(Every deaf person, no matter if it is ASL, oral,
Cued Speech, late-deafened, hearing aid user, CI user,
etc, share these pet peeves. You may laugh or cry)

DEAF AVOIDS FAST FOOD PLACES
A deaf person avoids fast food places. He is
tired of immigrant sandwich makers asking him
“do you want ketchup” or “do you want salt” or
“what bread do you want”, etc.
Hard to read immigrants’ lips. This is why
the deaf person prefers to eat at sit down
restaurants where he can just point to the menu.

HEARING STUDENTS WANT ASL BUT DON’T WANT TO TAKE CLASSES
At one hearing college, there was a petition to
start new ASL class for foreign language credit.
Many students signed the petition. The college
administration agreed to set up a new ASL class.
But this ASL class was cancelled. Why? Only
five students signed up for that class!

DeafDigest – 17 October 2014

DeafDigest Mid-Week edition, October 17, 2014

 

 

— Batman’s special cousin in Toronto

Who is Batman’s cousin? It is the Dark Knight, and he is
running in the Toronto Scotiabank Waterfront Marathon this
Sunday. And he will be wearing his famous Batman costume
for the full 26 mile course in the race. What about it?
JP Hernandez, who runs as the Dark Knight, is deaf!
No, JP is not the Dark Knight in the movie, just in
the race.

 

 

— the next Gallaudet president

Current Gallaudet president Alan Hurwitz will retire
in December 2015. This is a little more than a year
ahead. The Gallaudet board of trustees is now getting
busy hunting for the next president. Already we have
a member of Gallaudet alumni serving on the search
committee – Deborah Elliott DeStefano. A big
issue right now – should the next president be deaf
or is it ok to hire a hearing president? The key
thing is to hire the most qualified president to
run Gallaudet in the future years.

 

 

— a shocking comment by a government official

David Freud, or known as Lord Freud, is the British
minister of welfare reform in the United Kingdom.
He gave a speech at a political meeting in which
he said that the deaf and the disabled do not
deserve to earn the minimum wage. This comment
pretty much embarrassed the British Minister
David Cameron who wanted nothing to do with
this welfare reform minister. Freud? Any
connection to the world famous psychiatrist of the
19th and 20th century? Yes, he is the greatgrandson.
Apparently the greatgrandfather would be greatly
embarrassed, too!

DeafDigest – 16 October 2014

DeafDigest Mid-Week edition, October 16, 2014

 

— Canada to deport a deaf teenager all by himself!

A deaf teenager who has been living illegally in Canada
has been arrested by the Canada Border Services Agency.
His crime? None! He was chatting with his old high school
friends on the high school property. When it started to
rain, he went inside – thus “violating” the policy that
unregistered students are not allowed inside the building.
The attorney for the Solidarity Across Borders is fighting
the deportation on behalf of this deaf teenager. The
Canadian agency is stubborn and is still going ahead with
the deportation to Mexico, his native country. He has no
one in Mexico to look after him.

 

— an insensitive comment by a former Boston mayor

Thomas M. Menino is a past mayor of Boston. He was
in New York City to give a talk about a book that
he was writing. After his talk, the audience started
to ask him questions. The very first question was from
a deaf woman, wanting to know why the museums in
Boston were not deaf friendly (no interpreters,
no captions, no scripts, no nothing). Menino replied:

talk to the new mayor!

 

— a check-off list for deaf seeking government services

If one goes to McDonalds, they can use the check-off list
for their menu choices – hamburger, french fries, soft
drink, etc. In Fukui City in Japan, the local government
people are coming up with a check-off list for the
benefit of deaf residents that seek assistance –
examples are registering for a local election, paying
utility bills, request for a street sign, request to
fill up a pot hole, etc, etc. The government clerk
will then point the deaf person to the right office.

— a video for cops scared to deal with the deaf

Many cops are afraid to deal with the deaf, even if
it is a trivial matter, like a broken tail light.
To deal with the fear, a TV station in Tulsa has
produced a video to show to cops on how to deal
with the deaf. This was part of the theme –
Tulsa Police Work To Improve Communication With Deaf
Community.

 
— a confession of a hearing actor playing a deaf role

We hate it when hearing actors play deaf roles, thus
stealing jobs from deaf actors. Larry Heard, a hearing
actor with small roles in Louisiana, said:

It is awkward being deaf because you hear everything,
and yet you have to act like you don’t hear anything

 
— a deaf bakery in United Kingdom

There was a deaf-owned bakery in the United Kingdom,
The Bakery, located in Buckingham, a small town of
12,000 people. The deaf owner was Arthur Loyns,
who operated it for 10 years until it was destroyed
during World War II. A number of hearing bakers
worked for him, and it was considered the best
bakery in town, with a reputation for food quality
and for clean facilities.

— a rare deaf job in the entertainment field

What is the rarest deaf job in the entertainment field?
It is voice-over acting. When one watches the cartoons
and hears conversation, it is called voiceovers. Anyway,
we have a deaf person who does voiceovers. It is Andre
Sogliuzzo. When he does voiceovers he uses special hearing
aids that are plugged into headset feeds so that he will
miss nothing.

 
— a “deaf house” across the street from Gallaudet

About 25 years ago, former Gallaudet instructor
Bernard Brown came up with the concept of a Deaf House,
as developed from his years of experience in the home
improvement field. You can see the list at:

http://http://deafdigest.com/deaf-house/

Anyway it was announced that Gallaudet is coming up
with a “town-gown” neighborhood across the street,
which is supposed to be 100 percent deaf friendly.
This concept is almost the same as the Deaf House.
The JBG Construction company will be building this
type of Deaf House Neighborhood, only that Gallaudet
calls it Town-Gown.

 

— Fedex in a lawsuit

Yesterday DeafDigest briefly mentioned that while
Fedex gives a lot of business to a deaf contractor,
it is being sued for lack of accommodations. The
attorney told DeafDigest that there were no
interpreters for application procedures, training,
daily safety meetings, employment disciplinary or
opportunities for promotion, workers comp,
termination and etc. 19 deaf people are part of
that lawsuit. So is Fedex good to the deaf or
bad to the deaf? See what happens in the courts.

— deaf balloonists better than hearing balloonists?

Hearing pilots can pilot their balloons up in the air, with the
help of their crew that move the balloonis through the winds.
What about deaf balloonists? Can they do a better job than
hearing balloonists? According to hearing balloon pilot Colin
Graham, Albquerque, New Mexico, yes, the deaf can do a better
job! Why? Because it is easier to communicate through sign
language while up in the air as compared to shouting out
words in a noisy background! His comments were part of a
news story on TV.

 

— Fedex helps deaf businessman grow big

There is a newspaper story of Fedex discriminating against
the deaf. This lawsuit, in Florida, is now in the courts.
But do look at Rene Martinez, a Minneapolis deaf man. He is
the CEO of AZS Express Shakopee, which is an independent
contractor with Fedex. It is not a tiny, one man, company.
Rene has branches in St. Paul, Shakopee and Mahtomedi.
There are 28 employees on the payroll and the company owns
50 delivery trucks. Rene says his business has grown 10 to 20
percent each year. So, does Fedex discriminate against the deaf?
Rene says, no!

 

 

— we have many professional deaf basketball players

Do we have many deaf professional basketball players? Yes,
but they do not earn 1 million dollars a year! The NorthWest
Association for the Deaf Basketball, which is part of the
national deaf basketball organization, has made this
announcement:

 

first place team – players get $6.00 each
second place team – players get $4.00 each
third place team – players get $3.00 each
fourth place team – players get $2.00 each

For getting money, these players are professionals.
Unfortunately, when they go to McDonald’s, the tiny
cash money disappears quickly.

Youth Residence in Canada. The staff told the police

A deaf businessman in Great Britain has complained

FEELING SORRY FOR CODA SISTER
Two sisters, one deaf, one hearing, but fluent in ASL,
attended a big deaf convention. Both sisters look almost the
same but they are not twins.
The hearing sister does not know the Deaf Community, and
many deaf people, thinking she was deaf, came to her for a
chat. She was uncomfortable because she was shy and because
she did not know these people.
She did not enjoy the convention and wanted to go home!

industrial, mixed-use, public parks, etc).
What if a deaf person volunteers and no other hearing person
volunteers?
Will the small town pay for interpreters? Many small towns

WHAT DO INTERPRETERS HATE?

being the only interpreter around, leading to
long hours with many deaf clients waiting in line

COMMENTS FROM A CART OPERATOR – continuing series

Questions were raised recently when captions for a nationally
televised program displayed content for a totally different
program that was being aired at the same time. People asked
how that could possibly happen.

What some caption viewers may not understand is that most
“live” television programs are being captioned remotely.
Almost no TV stations hire captioners who work from their
studios to provide the captions.

There are a few realtime captioners who work from the offices
of the large captioning companies, but the vast majority of
broadcast captioners work from their home offices.

When a captioner captions a program in realtime, they must
dial in to an encoder at the television station. At that
point, mistakes can happen. The captioner could dial the
wrong telephone number. An engineer at the captioning
company or television station could make a mistake.
Although it is regrettable that the television show had
erroneous captions for the first few minutes, the mistake
was caught and fixed by the people involved.

A PET PEEVE OF BEING DEAF

hearing people assuming that all deaf people have
hearing ear dogs

(Every deaf person, no matter if it is ASL, oral,
Cued Speech, late-deafened, hearing aid user, CI user,
etc, share these pet peeves. You may laugh or cry)

Top stories about the deaf:

A deaf man was sentenced to prison for a crime
he committed in Ireland. He had to be transferred
to Great Britain because there are no such
facilities for him in Ireland.

The Swaziland National Sports and Recreation Council
was upset over the failure of the Association of
Sports for Persons with Disability to involve the
deaf sports groups.

A coalition of the deaf in Vermont is asking
that the legislature create a new state commission
for the deaf and also to reopen the Austine
School for the Deaf. And also to have a role
in services the state selects to serve the deaf.
The picture of the rally is at:

http://deafdigest.com/2014-vermont-deaf-rally/

In Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, the Little Wonton Cafe,
a hearing-run restaurant, has hired 20 deaf people
for one-day employment. Purpose was to create
awareness among hearing patrons on what the deaf
can do a working environment. Permanent jobs
for them? The restaurant owner only made vague
promises!

The Department of Rehabilitation Counseling at
Winston-Salem State University (North Carolina)

A DEAF CEO SHOCKED BY FIRING
This is a true story. DeafDigest will not mention who
the person is or what agency it was.
A deaf CEO was not happy about a deaf employee. He and the
deaf deputy CEO both agreed that the employee should be
fired.
The CEO wanted to be careful with words to inform the
employee that he was to be fired during a private meeting
between CEO, deputy CEO and the employee.
During that private meeting, the CEO had to go to the
restroom. When he came back, the employee was already
fired by the deputy CEO (without CEO’s permission).
The CEO was angry about it and also fired deputy CEO!

HATING PAPER AND PEN
Do hearing people hate paper and pen while deaf people
love paper and pen?
Often we go to a store, and tell the clerk you are deaf
and you need to write something on paper.
You watch (and laugh) for few minutes as the hearing
clerk runs all over, looking for a pen and a paper pad!

DeafDigest – 10 October 2014

DeafDigest Mid-Week edition, October 10, 2014

 
— governor candidates comment about TV captions

Three candidates (Anthony Brown, Boyd Rutherford and
Shawn Quinn) are hoping to be the next governor of
Maryland. They were asked this question:

why no captions in your political ads?

Said Brown:
Costly, and I feel I failed the deaf

Said Rutherford:
good question; I will have my committee discuss this

Said Quinn:
I have no money in my campaign funds to pay for captions

 

 

 
— most successful deaf lifeguard’s 16 near-failures

The most successful deaf lifeguard was Leroy Colombo
who protected swimmers from the waves on the beaches
of Galveston, Texas. He saved 907 swimmers from
drowning in a career that spanned 45 years (1923-
1968). He had 16 near-failures. What were these
failures? He was a very strong swimmer and won
many long distance swimming races – but he
nearly drowned 16 times while rushing out to
rescue these swimmers! The waves off the Galveston
beaches overwhelmed him.

 

 

— talking to Aiko Chihira

Can we chat with Aiko Chihira? Possibly not in
ASL but possibly in Japanese Sign Language (JSL).
Aiko is a robot, but looks like a human being.
It was demonstrated at a high tech Japanese
expo this week by Toshiba. Right now his
“knowledge” of JSL is limited, but with increased
programming, the vocabulary will include more
signs. Why not ASL? It can, but not yet right now.

DeafDigest – 09 October 2014

DeafDigest Mid-Week edition, October 9, 2014

 
— a new sign language

There is a new sign language. It is called Smartphone
Sign Language, and it is for the hearing as well as
for the deaf! The new Smartphone can read hand
gestures; users will not have to key in their
commands (change screen, change maps, shooting a
target in a game, etc). So far, the Smartphone
can recognize six commands but some feel it can
be expanded to 20 commands.

 

— a wristband for deaf swimmers

There is a new rubber wristband in New Zealand.
It says “hearing impaired” and is to be worn
by deaf swimmers at public pools. This is to
tell lifeguards that the swimmer is deaf. It
was designed by a mother of a deaf son, who
got tired of having to tell lifeguards of
the son’s deafness. Will it catch on in USA?

 
— a deaf chimp becoming a person

In a 1956 TV comedy, a chimp was inducted
into the Army by mistake. He was quickly given
a discharge before the Pentagon could find out
about it. Anyway, DeafDigest is mentioning this
because the New York appeals court may decide
if a chimp has human rights and therefore,
becoming a person. It involves Kiko, the
deaf chimp that lives in a private residence.
Making this case is animal rights organization.
Warning: this story is not a joke!

— a continuing mess, big time, at Montesano, Washington

DeafDigest mentioned this past July that Marisa Salzer,
a deaf member of the Montesano, Washington council
has been denied an interpreter despite her repeated
requests. It has been so bad that an interpreting
agency backed out, refusing to do any more interpreting.
The city is stuck – they cannot proceed with council
meetings, and they are thinking of assistive listening
devices. Marisa told them these devices do not work,
but apparently the council does not understand deafness.

 

— a successful deaf man started at the bottom

Marvin Hajdamacha, a young deaf man, graduated from
Model Secondary School for the Deaf but never went
to college. He started at the bottom, as a stocker
of merchandise with Hallmark Cards. He then went
to a trade school to learn to become an automobile
mechanic. He just won a big honor at the Mike Pile
BMW (Tyler, Texas) as the Employee of the Month,
despite being one of the newest employees! With
these high priced BMW cars, he does everything
that master mechanics do, even better!

See his picture at:

— deaf piloting a helicopter

Could a deaf person pilot a helicopter, which is
different from piloting a small airplane? DeafDigest
editor met a deaf man, who claimed to be a helicopter
pilot, but would not answer questions about it. Anyway
there was a recent story about a hearing man –
Harry Griffith, owner of Horizon Helicopters in
Delaware. He said one of his students was a deaf man,
who received a private helicopter certificate.

DeafDigest Mid-Week edition, October 7, 2014

 
— a possible perfect job for the deaf

What is a possible perfect job for the deaf
in the future? A writer of a high tech
web site said that closed-circuit television
surveillance jobs may be ideal for the deaf.
In fact, in South Africa, there are classes
for the deaf in surveillance in hopes that
some of these graduates will find jobs
in that field.

 
— a Cheerios TV commercial

Cheerios TV commercials in Canada are sometimes
different from those in USA. One new commercial
shows two cousins that look like and act like
sisters; one of these two cousins is deaf.
Cheerios has not yet decided if these Canadian
commercials will show on American TV sets sometime
in the future.

 
— invisible hearing aids not a good idea

Invisible hearing aids not a good idea? This is
what one person wrote in a newspaper. Reasons?
Hard to place a thin wire in the ear. If the
hearing aid is dropped, hard to find it on
the floor. Or if it is taken off, may forgot
where it was placed on the table or desk.
Hard to touch the switch. Hard to replace
the tiny battery, etc, etc.

DeafDigest Mid-Week edition, October 6, 2014

 
— not once but twice with a deaf child

a 5-year old deaf girl, riding on a school bus
from school in North Columbus, Ohio, was not
dropped off at her home. It happened not once
but twice and the girl’s parents are very
angry about it. The bus company gave some
excuses such as the driver was a sub who did
not know the students’ routes. The school
district is looking into it.

 

— a deaf Italian scam with migrants

Pietro Giardini, the president of the Italian National
Federation of the Deaf, is in trouble with the law.
He was part of a group that created fake work
permits for hearing Egyptian migrants so that they
could work for deaf families in Italy. He told
these deaf families they would be richly rewarded
if they hired these migrants. Suspicious Italian
officials ran an investigation for two years before
making these arrests.

 
— a captioned TV program that was hacked

Deaf people watching the Blue Bloods TV program on
the CBS network was puzzled by strange captions,
these strange phrases and words that were not
part of the program. Somehow these captions
were hacked into, and the script was changed
all around. The CBS people were not too happy
about it and has promised an investigation to
make sure it never happens again!

Top stories about the deaf:

For some reason the Edwards Air Force base in
California was slow to install video relay
equipment for its deaf employees but finally
got around to it this week.

Dussehra is a big event in Mumbia (India). A large
group of deaf women exhibited their best clothes
in hopes of winning approval from the audience.

A team of researchers in Edinburgh and Manchester
(Great Britain) is studying how the interpreters
interact with the deaf.

A deaf man was fired from his job with General
Rentals in West Virginia. He filed a lawsuit,
claiming deafness was the reason for his dismissal.
This case is in the courts.

New Forest is the name of the play that is making
its tour in Great Britain. One of the performers
is Sophie Stone. She is deaf, the only one in
an all-hearing cast

ANGRY HEARING PEOPLE IN THE ELEVATOR
Happens all the time. A deaf person goes into the elevator with
hearing strangers. They do not know that he is deaf.
They tell him to please press floor 4 or floor 6, etc. The deaf
person doesn’t press the button. Hearing people get angry, thinking
the deaf person is lazy or is a snob.

A WANDERING DEAF MAN
A true story. A deaf man was visiting his deaf family in a
different town.
The deaf man was nervous; a lot of pressure with many problems.
He decided to cool off with a long walk by himself. He walked for
many miles.
When the deaf man did not come home after a long time, family
members were worried.
They contacted the cops. Suddenly the TV news and the newspapers
said deaf man was missing – maybe kidnapped or got hurt or was hit
by car, etc.
Hours later the deaf man came home, and was embarrassed by
all the attention on him for nothing.

Deaf Question of the Week:

Q. We have laws protecting the rights and needs of
the deaf. The ADA is a perfect example. Yet why are
we seeing so many deaf lawsuits claiming that ADA
regulations were violated.

A. Many hearing people say they are aware of ADA
but really do not know exactly what it is all about,
and think their anti-deaf actions do not break these
ADA regs!

-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-

Rene Pellerin’s Corner:

I attended a rally to save Austine School for the Deaf.

It was a very moving event with advance planning for us who
are DeafBlind.

We set up projector screens with the black side toward the audience
to help attendees see better.

We set up a second one for low vision folks with interpreters.

APPLAUSE ON TV PROGRAM
At many TV interview talk shows, the hearing people in the audience
will clap their hands in a loud applause.
How do they know when to applaud? They see a big lighted sign in
front of the stage that lights up “applause”.
Suppose it was a deaf TV interview show with interpreters. And
deaf people are in the audience. They see the big lighted sign that
flashes “applaud”.
Do they clap their hands? Or do they hand-wave their hands?

LAST PERSON TO KNOW WHEN A LONG TIME EMPLOYEE RETIRES
A long time hearing employee decided to retire. That employee
wanted it to be quiet – no farewell party. Just work the last day
and “disappear” for good.
All the hearing employees know about it. No one tells the deaf
employee about it.
For three months the deaf employee is puzzled on why that hearing
employee has not shown up for work.
Finally he finds out that the hearing employee retired three months
ago.
It is discrimination when hearing employees don’t share the
gossip with the deaf employee.

WHAT DO INTERPRETERS HATE?

Tightwad school districts hiring interpreters but with

to save money on salaries paid them

COMMENTS FROM A CART OPERATOR . continuing series

One of the most important things that people who use closed
captioning can do is to become advocates for good closed
captioning. Since the FCC only recently implemented guidelines with
regard to the quality of closed captioning, some people are still
just trying to get by with the cheapest method possible without
regard for the quality of the services.

If you see TV shows that have poor captioning, you need to let people
know. Don’t just turn the channel and assume someone else will fix
the situation. Please take steps to complain to the FCC, the
television station, and the producers of the show.

Also, if you see shows that have excellent captioning, it would be
good to let people know that they’re doing a good job. In the current
job climate, some very good captioners are losing their jobs to
people who are not qualified.

As far as Deaf Bragging Rights are concerned the Deaf
Canadians are one up on Deaf Americans.
The Canadian Radio-Television and Telecommunications
Commission (their version of our own FCC) agreed with
the request by Canadian Association of the Deaf (similar
to our own NAD). It is to place at least one pay-TTY
in each groups of payphones.
Here in USA if we want to use a pay-TTY phone we
need to go to the airports and other major public
facilities. Not that so in Canada.

— the Secret Service and the deaf

We have been reading the newspapers on the bad job
the Secret Service is doing protecting our
president. What about the deaf? We will also
remember the fake sign language interpreter in
South Africa that was making no sense during his
fake signing of Obama’s speech. It was the Secret
Service’s job to check the faker’s background and
they didn’t!

 

 

— deaf becoming important weather service volunteers

We have hearing people that look for hurricanes
and storms and inform the National Weather Service
with the information. What about the deaf? About
25 deaf people have been trained by the National
Weather Service in Tennessee to become official
weather volunteers. They also look for hurricanes,
strong winds, hail storms and tornadoes.

 
— something about Google Glass we don’t know about

We know that the Google Glass is supposed to show
movie captions and act as our lipreading machine.
But for lipreading, it must work with the Android
smartphone and with a special app. Without the
Android and the app, the Google Glass is useless
as a lipreading machine!

— hearing aid in a dangerous sport

Mat Gilbert, who is deaf, is a professional rugby
player in Great Britain. It was learned that he
wears a hearing aid while playing rugby. He said
bumps and bruises do not destroy his hearing aid.
He is more worried about sweat and water that can
do more damage! He wears a padded skull cap to
protect his hearing aid on the field. Does he
worry about hands and shoulders that slam his
ear? This question was not asked during the
interview!

 

— a deaf leader among college students in Montana

Kirk Hash, who is deaf, was elected to the senate of
the Associated Students of the University of Montana
ASUM). This group is more like a Student Body
Government, while representing students at Missoula
College. Since it is very difficult to find interpreters
that can come to evening meetings, Kirk uses the
video relay services instead.

 

 

— seven languages in Qatar

People of Qatar use the 999 telephone service for
emergency purposes (like our 911). This service is
available in seven different languages that the
natives speak. What about the deaf? This service
is only available in Arabic and English! What
about five other langauges that the deaf may
use? Sorry, they are out of luck. Discrimination?

— a hot issue right now in the Deaf Community

Are we happy with the interpreting agencies that get
interpreters for us? Do we have issues or complaints?
This is the issue that concerns the National Association
of the Deaf, the TDI, Inc and the Registry of Interpreters
for the Deaf. These three groups are working together
to see if complaints are valid or not valid.

 

 
— a surprise about the closed Austine School for the Deaf

Austine School for the Deaf (Vermont) has closed for one
reason – lack of money. And there is a bad surprise – the
school owes the state 6 million dollars. As a result, the
state has seized the Austine land. But will the state
be able to get back the money? No one knows. This was the
big story in the Vermont newspapers today. Hopefully
this issue will be resolved and the school will reopen
in the near future. Deaf activists are not giving up.

 

 
— a Wisconsin sports bar honors the deaf

Mid Town Pub is a popular hangout in Madison, Wisconsin
for patrons that follow sports – Green Bay Packers,
Milwaukee Brewers, University of Wisconsin, etc. There
is a pleasant surprise for the deaf inside the bar.
Finger spelling alphabet signs are pasted on the
ceiling. When one looks up the ceiling he can learn
how each letter is fingerspelled.
