DeafDigest Mid-Week edition – October 31, 2019

— once and done open captions

The Midwest Theater in Nebraska was praised for showing
open captions of the movie Toy Story 4 way back in August.
September? No open captions. October? No open captions.
November is tomorrow and will there be open captions?
Do not know. Does it mean it is once and done open
captions showing by the Midwest Theater?

 

— a comment about Deaf Culture is Not a Rip-Off

An angry student wrote a letter to a campus newspaper
that Deaf Culture is Not a Rip-Off. She was upset that
ASL was not accepted as a foreign langauge credit.
There are always debates at all universities – career-
oriented majors or soft majors.

 

— state deaf survey possibly not 100 percent accurate

The state of Michigan ran a survey of its’ deaf and hard
of hearing residents. There is talk that the survey results
may not be totally accurate. Many white deaf females
responded to the survey, but not males or deaf of
Color. This survey may be re-done but with face to
face contacts with as many deaf and hard of hearing
people as possible.

DeafDigest Mid-Week edition – October 30, 2019

— to the rescue of deaf woman with $5,000 water bill

DeafDigest yesterday posted a story of a deaf woman
hit with a $5,000 water bill because she couldn’t
hear the water leaking from the toilet. The city
Community Action Agency said they will take care
of this water bill.

 

— posted by a casting director

For an upcoming deaf movie, a casting director
posted this notice:

Email me about ASL acting roles. Also email me
if you are ASL-fluent. I will not answer other
emails

Wow!

 

— a stink attitude by a hearing boss

A deaf person applied for a job and did not get it.
Yes, he filed a discrimination lawsuit. What did
the hearing boss say:

If you cannot communicate with me, we cannot hire you!

Huh? What about gestures? What about written
notes? What about facial expressions? What
about body language? All of these that deaf
people will understand!

DeafDigest Mid-Week edition – October 29, 2019

— must stay in bathroom when finished with it

If you are finished in the bathroom, it is best to
stay in it to make sure no water is leaking from
the toilet. It only takes maybe one or two minutes.
A deaf woman received a $5,000 water bill from her
city government. She had expected a bill of approximately
$260-$270. Deaf people cannot hear water being wasted
in the bathroom. Hearing people can. That woman is
now fighting the bill.

 

— more interpreters with upcoming elections

An interpreter was quoted in a newspaper story.
He said:

If you interpret it, they will come

He was talking about past political rallies
that the deaf people stay away from because
of no interpreters. And with interpreters
they will come.

An important thing – two interpreters, not
one interpreter.

 

— A big shock with new movie – Conductor

A new horror movie for deaf people that love
horror movies. A new film – Conductor
is coming out. It is about a deaf woman
that witnessed a horrible crime. Her shock
about this horrible crime left her as a
hearing woman!

Overview of Department

The Interpreter Education Program at Central Piedmont Community
College is focused on preparing learners to work as ASL-English
interpreters in a variety of settings and contexts. ASL instruction
allows learners to either take ASL to satisfy modern language
requirements of other programs, complete a certificate in Basic ASL
Communication and/or complete an Associate’s Degree in ASL-English
Interpreting. The Central Piedmont Interpreter Education Program
is founded on the belief that Deaf people constitute a linguistic
and cultural minority group where ASL is a central indigenous language
used by members of the Deaf community. Instructors encourage
students to acquire and master ASL both through classroom instruction
and diverse contact within the Deaf Community. The program uses the
approach that interpreters are allies within the Deaf Community and
that interpreting is a complex cognitive process. We recognize that
not all deaf people use ASL and thus, we encourage students to
broaden their competence and expertise through on-going association
with a variety of Deaf persons and a commitment to life-long
learning. Students who graduate from the program are prepared to
apply for a provisional license with the State of NC and/or to
take the EIPA to work in k-12 settings.

Helga Otto Haub School of Environment and Natural Resources
University of Wyoming
Laramie, WY

The University of Wyoming (UW) invites applications for the Knobloch
Professorship in the Helga Otto Haub School of Environment and Natural
Resources (ENR) focusing on economic dimensions of conservation. We seek
an accomplished and creative individual to provide research,
outreach/engagement, teaching, and service consistent with the educational
mission of the University of Wyoming. The Haub School values
interdisciplinary approaches to environmental problem solving; scholarship
that can inform real-world solutions; tangible, place-based experiences to
develop critical thinking skills in the next generation of leaders and
decision makers; and a diverse, equitable, and inclusive environment on
campus and beyond.

The position is broadly conceived as focusing on the economics
underpinning such conservation topics as biodiversity, land, water,
working landscapes, and sustainable communities, and how that work can
inform conservation policy and practice. We welcome applicants with a
background in environmental, ecological, natural resource, institutional,
agricultural, or behavioral economics. We are especially interested in
applicants who can advance both the understanding and application of
economic concepts in support of sound decision making. Specific areas of

ecosystem services, conservation finance, program design and evaluation,
field experiments, and other relevant concepts and techniques.

The professor will conduct research to advance the field of conservation
economics, engage with communities to support real-world decision making,
and teach undergraduate and graduate courses in their area of expertise.
We seek colleagues who can demonstrate excellent interdisciplinary
scholarship and teaching, outstanding communication skills, and capacity
to advance the Haub School’s reputation and vision. We are interested in
candidates with experience in the American West and evidence of effective
engagement with stakeholders including natural resource agencies, land
managers, conservation organizations, and communities. The preferred
candidate may be of any rank, but we envision hiring an associate
professor. Candidates at the assistant professor level with an established
record of research are encouraged to apply.

The Knobloch Professorship is supported by an endowment with funds that
may be used for research, conference travel, graduate students, sponsoring
visiting lecturers, and other activities relevant to the position.

pedagogy;

Desired Qualifications

decision-makers;

in the American West.

DeafDigest Mid-Week edition – October 28, 2019

— honoring or mocking the deaf

DeafDigest editor is troubled by a oomment by a Coda
professional comedian. He said:

I used to do impersonations for my deaf family without using
my voice

This Coda is a successful comedian, hitting the night club
spots across USA. But, is he really honoring the deaf or
mocking the deaf?

 

— museums discriminating against the deaf

Do museums discriminate against the deaf despite
these ADA rules? A deaf person who likes to tour
small and privately-owned (and interesting)
museums, said yes! No interpreters; no
scripts of each exhibits, no captions etc.
Many such small museums are struggling for funds
and cannot afford these deaf accommodations.

 

— deaf AI depends on hearing facial expressions

Tomas Pfister, not deaf, is an expert with AI. In an
interview, he said he felt AI could figure out
hearing facial expressions and hearing body
language. Really?
