— state laws and the interpreters

It was learned that only 16 states require
ASL interpreters to be licensed. Also only
12 (of these 16 states) accept RID
certification as state license. What about
34 states that do not require licenses?
A big mess, it certainly is. A picture

— movie punishment for being deaf

Movie scripts used to punish deaf characters because of their
deafness. That was true in Hollywood years ago. Not so any
more.

 

— 23andMe and ancestry sites may look into deaf genes

Many people grow up without knowing their real parents.
This is the reason why these people sign up with
23andMe and ancestry other sites in hopes of finding their
real families. Cost ranges between $100 to $140. The
search looks for deafness genes, if any, as well as
with other non-deaf genetical issues.

— rude or not rude

A hearing person said:
I love watching people sign to one another; I often watch people
have lightning-fast expressive conversations in American Sign
Language

Is it OK or rude for a hearing person to spy on deaf that
communicate with each other? A picture is at:

— university president hiring the deaf

Jack Hawkins was the director of Alabama School for the
Deaf. In 1989 he accepted a job offer to become the
president of Troy University. He has not forgotten his
deaf roots; many of the landscape workers on the Troy
campus are deaf. Not too many other presidents would
do the same on behalf of the deaf!

 

— the only deaf person

A deaf man, who loves watching movies, said he often
was the only deaf person to watch an open captioned
movie at a theater. He was making a point, in that
deaf people demand open captions but do not show up
for these open captioned movies!
