services for the deaf upon demand.

BOUNCERS IN BARS
Many bars have bouncers. They have two roles – not allow
underage kids to enter the bars; and to keep peace in the bar
when drunk people want to fight.
Have we had any deaf bouncers? There have been several
deaf bouncers – now and in the past. DeafDigest editor knows
of two deaf bouncers – one was a 285-lb former Gallaudet
football player; the other was the famous deaf fighter
Matt Hamill!
Deaf bouncers can do their job by using gestures.

THE THREE SISTERS
Three sisters in a family were close to each other
in age. One was born deaf; the second one was born
hard of hearing; the third one was born hearing.
The deaf sister went to a residential school.
The hard of hearing sister went to a mainstreamed
program.
Years later these sisters reached into 30’s in
age. The hard of hearing sister lost her hearing and
became deaf. The hearing sister also lost her hearing
and has become deaf.
Genetics playing a funny game with these three
sisters? Hard to say. The father fought in the Vietnam
War where Agent Orange was used. He says it changed
his genes, thus causing deafness in his three
daughters. He is very bitter about it.

Top stories about the deaf:

Zheng Xuan, who is deaf, has been pushing for
respect in linguistic research into Chinese sign
language, a field dominated by hearing people
that claim to be sign language experts.

………..

A public display garden in Costantia, a suburb of
Cape Town in South Africa, was razed and destroyed
much to the dismay of residents. The landscape
architect was Ann Sutton. She was deaf.

……….

Texas School for the Deaf has been working with
a local pharmacy to provide Covid-19 shots.
This is said to be unique Deaf community service.

…………….

A school district is worried. The high school in
that district will start ASL courses, but the
big question among the administrators is:

do we have enough teachers?

………………

The Deaf West Theatre has withdrawn from the
LA Stage Alliance because its request for
ASL interpreter or captions was ignored.

IS ADA STRONG OR WEAK?
Is ADA strong or weak? ADA is 20 years old but
we are always having problems. Almost every week we
read in newspapers about lawsuits against doctors
and hospitals. They would not give us interpreters.
ADA is very strong if hearing people have strong
attitude and want to help the deaf. ADA is very
weak if hearing people have bad attitudes about us.
ADA strong or weak? You decide!

UNION STATION IN WASHINGTON, DC
Union Station is not too far from Gallaudet
University.
This station has a lot of history. Many years ago
Gallaudet students went to the Union Station to take
the trains back to their home towns. There were always
many Gallaudet students at Union Station greeting
each other for the fall semester, and saying farewell
after the spring semester.
Times have changed. Students either fly or drive.
But many deaf people still go to Union Station – because
it has a big Food Court and students always get tired
of college food!

Top stories about the deaf:

A hospital in Toledo, Spain is stuck with
a broken hearing screening detection machine.
As a result, no one knows if the newly born
babies are deaf or hearing! It has been
broken for three months and only just
recently the hospital has completed
paperwork to purchase a new machine.

………..

A newspaper interview disclosed that Penn
State does not offer ASL program nor
recognize ASL as a language. Penn State
is one of these big nationally recognized
universities with high academic standards.
Yet, deaf and ASL, no, according to Penn State!

……….

Traffic intersection push buttons that
vibrate! Deaf people push heavy traffic
intersection light buttons in many cities
that don’t vibrate. This innovation is

supposed to help the deaf. Still, the
most important thing is – eyes to make sure
intersections are clear to cross across.

…………….

There is a debate in Bhutan about describing
the deaf. Are they to be described as Deaf
or as deaf? And that the deaf people themselves
are confused between being deaf or being Deaf!

………………

UPS had hoped to avoid a lawsuit over refusal
to promote a deaf employee for a driver’s
job, but couldn’t because of a ruling by
Wisconsin federal judge. This meant the lawsuit
will proceed.

CAPTIONS ON UNITED AIRLINES
United Airlines that fly to Europe have captions
on some of their movies.

This is great – but what is not so great is
that most of their movies are not captioned.

Hearing people have more choices with their
movies; deaf choices are limited.

A LAWSUIT IRONY
There is an irony with a lawsuit a deaf woman filed
against an Ear, Nose and Throat medical clinic.
That clinic refused to provide her with an interpreter;
she sued and won.
The irony is that the Ear, Nose and Throat medical clinic
works with many deaf patients, and they should be familiar
with their interpreting needs!
Why did they refuse? We will never know.

Top stories about the deaf:

It was reminded for all of us that in 1980
closed captioned TV programs was introduced
by ABC, NBC and PBS. What about CBS? This
network refused to caption and in fact a
high ranking CBS official told a deaf
leader:

We will NEVER caption our programs.

A couple of years later that official
was removed from his position and CBS
gave in and joined the original captioning
group!

………..

This sense of timing is strange. Marisa Salzer.
who is deaf and formerly served as the member
of the Montesano City (Washington) city
council, and was never provided with interpreters
and closed captions during council meetings.
When she stepped down, she came up with a
civil lawsuit. Why didn’t she file a lawsuit
while she was still serving on the council?

……….

It was learned that Google Chrome 89 will
provide captions on desktops. What about iPhones?
Do not know.

…………….

Must be perfect or else! This refers to computers
that are supposed to provide interpreting services
for the deaf. A tech person said that even a tiny
interpreting error could be a disaster for deaf
clients!

………………

The Maryland state song “Maryland, My Maryland!”
is racist; one of the phrases was this –

nor deaf, nor dumb

For that reason, state legislators are working
to have this song repealed.

AMERICAN SIGN LANGUAGE AND VIETNAMESE SIGN LANGUAGE

Our American Sign Language is a complete language.
We have signs for most words in the dictionary.
Some countries have limited sign language vocabulary.
The VSL (Vietnamese Sign Language) is limited. For their
interpreters it was hard for them to sign some words
because there is none in the VSL dictionary.
We should realize we are fortunate to have a complete
sign language.

Top stories about the deaf:

Enforceable minimum standards with TV captions?
FCC has standards but how enforceable is it?
Well, it is a big issue in Australia.

………..

Tahseen Ahmed, who is deaf, was written up in
a newspaper story about her work as
chief occupational therapist at a hospital.
She oversees work on oncology, lymphedema
and plastics patients.

……….

An advocate said, in a newspaper story,
that hearing people do not realize that
the deaf community is diverse, meaning
no such a thing as one size fits all
approach.

…………….

The Deaf Women United Conference, scheduled
for this summer in Chicago, has been postponed
to July 22-30, 2023.

………………

Ontario will be the first province in Canada
to provide sign language courses in two languages.

Ontario is English. Quebec is French and why
isn’t Quebec offering ASL courses. Not every
person in Quebec speaks French.

Good question.

A CRAZY LAW IN MASSACHUSETTS
For many years in Massachusetts, all deaf clubs broke
the law.
The state had an old law that requires all movie
projectionists to have a state license! Why? We do not
know.
This means that deaf clubs in the state that show
captioned films were in violation of the law.
Fortunately, no deaf projectionists were arrested!
Today, it seems not to be a problem because movie
films are old fashioned; we watch movies with DVDs.

OUR DEAF LEADERS IN THE OLD DAYS
In the old days, many deaf leaders were members of
a few national organizations. They were involved
with organization operations. This is why these national
organizations were close to each other – such as
NAD, AAAD and NFSD working closely together.
Times have changed. NAD leaders do not know deaf
sports leaders; religious leaders do not know
NAD leaders; and so on!
