DeafDigest Mid-Week edition – October 19, 2021

— last name is Deaf

There was a big auto rally race in Spain.
The last name of one of the competitors
was Deaf. His first name was just
abbreviated as C. Interestingly
enough, one other competitor was
Dani Sordo. The last name Sordo –
means deaf in Spanish. Did the
writer get both names mixed up?

 

— lying and forgery

Kenny Cheong Chyuan Lih, a police officer,
was accused of forging accident statements
from families of victims. One such victim
was a deaf driver who was hit by another
vehicle and died in hospital. His sister,
who was deaf, was mentioned in the accident
report. This deaf woman never said anything
and said she was never interviewed by
the police officer. For these reasons
the police officer was suspended. It
took place in Singapore.

 

— the Corn Maze

There is a Corn Maze in Allenport,
Pennsylvania. It is owned by Tim
Jackson, and it is 8-acres, part of the
100-acre farm plot. Tim is deaf, but
does not use ASL. On first day
130 people showed up; 80 people
showed up on second day, which
was competing with the Steelers
that played that day!

DeafDigest Mid-Week edition – October 18, 2021

— strange wording from AMC Theatres

AMC Theatres made this strange announcement:

they would permanently offer some Open Captions
each week.

Why not just permanently offer all open captions
instead of some?

 

— catfish and the deaf

Do we have deaf catfish farmers? There is one –
Emmanuel Isado, who owns and operates his own
Catfish Farms and Enterprises. According to
the Ministry of Agriculture, he is to be
praised for growing this such a farm.

Top stories about the deaf:

Do Halloween costumes make fun of the deaf?

An insider said:

Yes, it does. Past films such as Star Wars,
Joker, Phantom of The Opera, The Witches
and Captain Hook make fun of the disabled,
and in some cases, the deaf!

…………..

Hey, where are the interpreters?

This what the angry deaf people of Australia
is screaming.

Dominic Perrottet, the premier of New South Wales
gave a speech at a press conference – and it was
not interpreted!

The deaf people are already making a big stink
out of it.

……….

Deaf people have complained about asking for
assistance only to find no one believes
them. As a result, they do not get help
that they need.

This is what one deaf activist said.

……………….

AirPods becoming a trend, replacing traditional
hearing aids? Apple is pushing for it. The
advantage is that it saves money by not requiring
purchase of batteries for the hearing aid.

……………….

Omnium Circus, which tours USA has a deaf clown
that uses ASL.

This week’s ASL video in youtube

A SCARY INCIDENT
A deaf person lived with his hearing family members
in a house.
One morning, a stranger knocked on the door. A
hearing family member yelled “please open the door and
come in.”
The deaf person did not know that a family member
was yelling – and was surprised to see a stranger
come into the house.
Thinking the hearing person came in uninvited,
the deaf person threw him out of the house.
It was not realized until few hours later that
there was a big deaf-hearing misunderstanding.

This week’s ASL video in youtube

HEARING PERSON ANGRY OR NOT ANGRY?
A hearing person, listening to someone’s voice, will know
if the other hearing person is angry or not.
When a hearing person talks “rough” the deaf person may think
the hearing person is angry. Not always, there are many hearing
people that talk rough but are not really angry!
Often very hard to tell.
