DeafDigest Mid-Week edition – August 31, 2021

— deaf of hearing

When we hear this phrase – deaf of hearing,
it means deaf born to hearing parents. But
there is a twist – a deaf person, implanted
with a CI now call himself deaf of hearing!
Bottom line – can he pick up voice calls on
his iPhone? If not, then he is deaf despite
his CI!

 

— cannot add deafness to a discrimination lawsuit

A deaf person, deaf all his life, filed a job discrimination
lawsuit (about something on the job). He tried to amend his
lawsuit to include his lifelong deafness. The Iowa 
Supreme Court said no, but admitted the law itself
is vague, murky and confusing.

 

— funny or not funny

There is a mysterious siren that is coming out
from somewhere, but no one could locate it (to
turn it off). Some have suspected it is coming
from a school for the deaf! No, the deaf school
did not send out that siren, by the way. It
is happening in Great Britain.

DeafDigest Mid-Week edition – August 30, 2021

— bad hearing assumptions

there are always some hearing people that think deaf people
are mentally disabled and also have a learning disability.
Why? We do have deaf people that have won Nobel prizes!

 

— copycat movie

Is CODA a copycat movie? There was a movie about the
Belier Family. It was filmed in 2014 in France!
Both movies, however, were great.

 

— secret sign language

Is there such a thing as a secret sign language?
It is understood that Freemasonry (a secret fraternal
society) has a set of secret sign language that members
use to communicate with each other.

Top stories about the deaf:

Lou Ferrigno is making a guest appearance at the
Planet Comicon Kansas City event.

…………..

do interpreters have problems with rap songs?

This was the issue in a newspaper story

……….

Emmanuel Ndayisaba, the Rwanda Executive Secretary of
National Council for Persons with Disabilities made
an interesting comment, is that he is waiting on the
completion of national dictionary of sign language
before he could hire more interpreters. Is he saying
interpreters depend on the dictionary to train
themselves in sign language?

………………

A gamer said that while more games have captions, the
quality is so bad that they are very angry about it!

……………….

Colorado only has one interpreting agency provider; it
was pointed out in an agency board meeting.

DEAF FEEL COLD AIR DIFFERENTLY FROM HEARING
Do deaf people feel cold air differently
from hearing?
Seems deaf people have to feel the cold
air while hearing people “hear” the cold
air?

LOOKING FOR A JOB – IMPORTANT DECISION
Deaf people that look for jobs have to make an
important decision. What is the important decision?

– to tell the employer that you are deaf
– don’t tell the employer that you are deaf

If you tell the employer that you are deaf,
the employer may either find an interpreter
for you or to use notebook and pen to communicate.
Or the employer may decide not to invite you
for the interview. This is the big risk.

Which is the best decision? You decide !

This week’s ASL video in youtube:
http://deafdigest.com/videos/jobdecision/

note:
this is an old posting. ADA rules have
changed. If you are deaf and are rejected
for an interview, the employer risks ADA
lawsuits!
