Top stories about the deaf:

a 4-year old deaf child was dropped off at the wrong
school by a confused bus driver. Plus on another day
her bus did not show up. The angry family has made it
a local issue with a TV station.

……..

NY Senator Kirsten Gillibrand said she is pushing for
$90 million in funding NTID. DeafDigest editor says
both schools – Gallaudet and NTID are equals and so
if NTID gets that much funding, then the same should
go for Gallaudet.

……..

The attitude among hearing people in Nigeria, according
to an activist is that the deaf people are less important
them.

This is a sad attitude.

………..

An irony in Washington, DC, which is very strong on
ADA-compliance is that there is a backlog (255 tenants)
waiting for repairs to their public housing apartment
units. The irony is that few of these residents file
ADA claims, and so, they are on the low priority
repair list. This means a longer wait for ADA-related
repairs.

……….

At the Texas Association of the Deaf conference,
Norma Castillo was elected as new president.

This week’s ASL video in youtube

SICK AND TIRED OF THIS CI QUESTION
A hearing stranger talks to a deaf person.

The deaf person tells the stranger he is deaf.

The stranger immediately asks the deaf person
if he has a CI.

The deaf person says no. The hearing stranger
scolds the deaf person for not having a CI.

This hearing person has the big nerve to
ask this question!

Lip reading tale

Is the hearing person saying Treat or Trent?

This has led to deaf person’s lipreading confusion

MUST HEAR TO BAKE A CAKE?
Do bakers have to hear to bake a good cake?
DeafDigest does not think so; we have many
deaf people that work as bakers.
But one cake recipe said that the baker must
hear to know that the sizzling quieted down
and that the cake is ready to be served!
This recipe is a mystery.

COMMENTS FROM A CART OPERATOR – continuing series

As we continue looking at how stenocaptioners write final consonant
sounds, we see that a stenocaptioner uses the right index finger to
depress the final F key and the right middle finger to depress the final P
key.

Although it is not taught in all steno theories, most stenocaptioners
depress the final F and P keys together to form the final “-ch” sound.

If a captioner were to accidentally drag the P key, errors can occur that
would change the “-f” sound to the “-ch” sound.

Some examples of this would be:
He walks a mile and a hatch every day.
After exercising, her knee sometimes becomes a little stitch.
Without tenderizer, the meat was very touch.

These should be read as:
He walks a mile and a half every day.
After exercising, her knee sometimes becomes a little stiff.
Without tenderizer, the meat was very tough.

News of the Week – Looking Back 10 Years Ago:

Lidell Simpson, of United Kingdom, is deaf but is not
deaf! What is this all about? He has synesthesia, a
strange condition where five senses (touch, taste,
sound, sight, and smell) get all mixed up. When he
sees something, it translates into sound in his head.
He grew up, not understanding what was wrong with him,
until ten years ago. He has since then become an
authority on this rare condition and has been a
spokesperson at medical conferences.

News of the Week – Looking Back 5 Years Ago:

Christine VonMering-Fromer, who is deaf, has been
dismissed from the nursing program at the
North Shore Community College (Danvers, MA). She
is accusing the college of discriminating against
her deafness. The college is denying that
discrimination exists. Well, we do have a
national organization – Association of Medical
Professionals with Hearing Losses ( http://amphl.org/ )

And there are also a number of nurses at schools
for the deaf that are deaf. DeafDigest is not
sure if the deaf woman or the college administration
is aware of AMPHL.

DeafDigest Mid-Week edition – August 27, 2021

— trusting the deaf

The biggest compliment a store owner can give
to a deaf employee is when that owner is away
from the store for some reason. And that a
hearing customer walks in and the deaf employee
takes care of business!

 

— court room logistics nightmare

A deaf person is accused of serious crime.
And there have been many witnesses to that
crime – meaning interpreters and CDI’s
lined up three weeks in advance. Could
lead to logistical nightmare and the
court officials are aware of it.

 

— deaf traveler said she was treated as criminal

A deaf traveler, flying home from a long trip,
said the airport personnel treated her as a
criminal. They did not know how to deal with
her deafness and routine requests for refreshments
became a big communication hassle. They just stared
blankly at her during her repeated requests.

DeafDigest Mid-Week edition – August 26, 2021

— Mr. Goodbar candy named by accident

Hershey named Mr. Goodbar candy by accident.
Milton S. Hershey was late deafened and he thought
an associate said “Mister Goodbar.” The associate
actually said something else that Hershey misunderstood,
thinking it was a good name for a new candy bar.
The name stood and Mr. Goodbar continues as a
popular candy! Fact or fiction?

 

— it is so fast

someone said on twitter:
deaf people do sign language so fast it’s amazing

no one actually says:
hearing people do speak so fast it’s amazing

 

— the Justice of the Pies

The Justice of the Pies, a pie-making company in
Chicago, is owned by Maya-Camille Broussard. She
said she is a member of the local deaf and hard
of hearing community, and therefore her taste buds
and sense of smell is higher. Is she really deaf?
There may be some hearing people that say they
belong to the deaf community, but without saying
they are deaf!
