Top stories about the deaf:

Nakia Smith, who is deaf, has been honored by GAP
as one of the representatives of diverse groups in
USA.

…………..

Frontier Airlines haa kicked a deaf passenger out of
the plane, saying she “refused” to obey the instructions
of these masked flight attendants. To date, Frontier
has not issued an apology for this gross misunderstanding.

……….

A patient was told if he was not implanted, he would
be deaf in five years.

A vague advice! So open to wide interpretation.

………………

California legislators are arguing – issue is to
increase taxes to fund deaf relay and deaf devices
or to stay the taxes as is.

……………….

NBC Universal has sold 30-second ads for
the next Super Bowl for just $6.5 million,
breaking the record. This begs the next
question, will the sponsors pay for captions
on their record-breaking ads? Most probably will
but there is always a stubborn few that won’t,
saying captioning costs are too expensive. Just
a few hundred dollars!

This week’s ASL video in youtube

INTERPRETERS AT DOCTOR’S OFFICES
More and more doctors agree that interpreters are
important with deaf patients during medical
appointments.
The big issue is – who pays for interpreters?
Doctors do not want to pay for interpreters. Insurance
companies do not want to pay for interpreters.
This is the big issue today.

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

note:
this is an old video. ADA does not require deaf
patients to pay for provided interpreters. More
doctors go to VRI to avoid paying a penny for
interpreters, and this is another issue – as many
deaf patients hate VRI

ART ABOUT DEAF OR ART ABOUT HEARING
We have many deaf artists. But are they doing
Deaf Art or Hearing Art?
Hearing art lovers may not understand Deaf
Art but they do understand Hearing Art. This
may be the reason why Deaf Artists do hearing
Art instead of Deaf Art.

Top stories about the deaf:

Jennifer Herbold is the new superintendent
of New Mexico School for the Deaf. But everyone
knows her as she has been around at the school
in various capacities since 1999.

……..

A research team at University of Buffalo came up
with headphones that can “hear” and then translate
to ASL. It says the system can translate 40 words
and 30 easy sentences into ASL. DeafDigest wonders
if words and sentences get too complicated, will
it work?

……..

FCC is now asking if educational TV programs
actually can be accessible by the deaf or
are they getting a raw deal!

………..

The Ranking of Kings is a new video that
portrays Bojji as a powerless deaf prince.
He has found a new frined that is willing
to help him become the greatest king the
world has ever seen.

……….

A certain deaf social club has been asking
for donations to pay for upkeep (electricity,
water, fire alarm, landscaping, etc) saying
that Covid-19 hurt the club finances.

3D PRINTING MAY HELP THE DEAF
DeafDigest mentioned that 3D printing cannot work with
CI – but it may help the deaf in another way. It may
print a “perfect” hearing aid mold – the one that never
whistles and never makes your ear feel sore.

We will have to wait and see if it really will work!

Lip reading tale

Klein is a common last name

Klain is not a common last name

could a deaf person lipread between two last names?

OLD DEAF BOOKS AT OLD BOOKSTORES
From time to time DeafDigest editor likes to go
to private bookstores (not Barnes & Noble or Borders)
to look for interesting used books to buy.
And it is surprising to find deaf books at these
old bookstores.
He bought a deaf sports book at Cooperstown, NY
bookstore, which is near the Baseball Hall of Fame.
Also an old AAAD basketball tournament program
book at a Los Angeles bookstore. And also Doug Bullard’s
novel – Islay at a Philadelphia bookstore.

COMMENTS FROM A CART OPERATOR – continuing series

So far we have spent most of our time looking at one-syllable words. We
also need to realize that the same principles work in multisyllable words.

If a stenocaptioner doesn’t have a brief form for a particular word, they
will stroke it out syllable by syllable. Each syllable will be written
with the left hand stroking the initial consonant, the thumbs stroking the
vowels, and the right hand stroking the final consonant.

If the captioner were to have a slip of a finger on the right hand, a
mistake could occur at the end of any syllable of a word.

Some examples of this would be:
He put ketchup and mustard on his hamburger party.
The dog was being trained to obey his matter.
Her ability to remember facts just bottles my mind.

These should be read as:
He put ketchup and mustard on his hamburger patty.
The dog was being trained to obey his master.
Her ability to remember facts just boggles my mind.

News of the Week – Looking Back 10 Years Ago:

DeafDigest dedicates this edition to Leon Grant,
North Carolina, who departed us. During the sixties
and seventies, he was a Deaf Basketball Immortal.
Standing 6’8 tall, he led his deaf teams to six
national tournament championships. Among all time
deaf basketball greats on all levels over the
years, Leon was #1.

-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-

News of the Week – Looking Back 5 Years Ago:

Geoff Tunstalls, a deaf Scot, is an ambitious businessman,
operating his successful bicycle repairing shop in Carlisle
that employs a number of deaf people. Not stopping at it,
he is planning to establish a different second business –
a scallop-processing plant. He pays no attention to these
gloomy economic times and goes ahead with his plans. While
he is deaf, he does not use sign language.
