Top stories about the deaf:

The US Agency for International Development
has been praised for assisting Morocco with the
distance learning needs for the deaf.

………..

McLane Northeast, a Buffalo, NY, distribution
company would not interview a deaf applicant,
let alone hiring her. As a result, U.S. Equal
Employment Opportunity Commission has slapped
it with a job discrimination lawsuit.

……….

Major airports across the world have been
working together on how to best accommodate
disabled (and deaf) travelers. It is being
called Disability Sensitivity Training.

…………….

In an interview Evelyn Glennie, the deaf
percussionist, and the best in the world,
said while she became deaf at the age of
8, she still wanted a career in music.
But that her parents, both of them amateur
musicians, tried to discourage her. They
failed and the musical world stood the
better for it!

………………

Do Codas understand ASL even if they do not
use ASL? A linguist thinks so, yes, during
a newspaper interview.

LIBRARY AT MARTHA’S VINEYARD
Many of us know that there were many generations of
deaf people that lived on Martha’s Vineyard. And that hearing
people in the town used sign language to communicate with
the deaf.
A deaf group took a tour and stopped at the library at
Martha’s Vineyard to see if there were any ancestors
in their family trees.
The librarian showed them the birth-and-death book.
Those that were deaf were marked as “deaf.”
If a deaf person wants to do research, it is a tough
job because the library did not have deaf genealogical
files in the computer.

THE DEAFLYMPICS AND THE DEAF CULTURE
We have the Deaflympics, where the best deaf athletes
from all over the world compete against each other
in many different sports.
Does Deaflympics help improve Deaf Culture? Yes and no!
A high percentage of participants in Deaflympics are
oralists, late-deafened, hard of hearing that function as
hearing, etc, etc.
These people are most likely not part of Deaf Community.
And when the Deaflympics is over, they go back to their
own worlds!

Top stories about the deaf:

An activist said that deafness is not an
impairment. It was in reference in growing
up deaf and being part of the Deaf Culture
– as opposed to the late-deafened, in which
their deafness is an impairment!

………..

A Coda interpreter’s shock came up when he
was 8 years old. His deaf parents were invited
to attend a program event at his school –
but no one interpreted the music or speeches
by school officials! He felt it was an
invitation of inconsideration.

……….

All 911 dispatch centers in California, effective
immediately, must accept text messages. The
new state law has made it possible.

…………….

Microsoft was praised for airing one of the
best TV commercials of 2020 – sign language
shown on one of its Surface ads.

………………

The Middle Georgia Regional Library, located in Macon,
is distributing facemasks for the deaf people.

GALLAUDET’S BUDGET PROBLEMS
Few years ago, Gallaudet struggled with the
budget. Increases in salaries and health
insurance messed up the budget.
But after struggling, the budget was approved.
Gallaudet was glad.
Gallaudet University? No, it was Denny Gallaudet,
the past superintendent of the Richmond School
System in Maine!
Is Gallaudet part of the famous Gallaudet family?
Some think so, but not sure.

OLDEST DEAF BOOKS IN LIBRARY
Which library has the world’s oldest books on
deafness?
Almost all of us would say Gallaudet library.
That answer is wrong.
The library at Washington University of St Louis
has deafness library books that are over 500 years old!

Top stories about the deaf:

A must if one wishes to set up a virtual event
online is to make sure the interpreters are
available – in case there are deaf participants.
This was the advice in a newspaper article.

………..

In the planning by the NBC is a TV show produced
by Nyle DiMarco. It will be based on his life.

……….

A group of Israeli scientists have said they have
developed a breakthrough in gene therapy
for deaf children. DeafDigest editor recalls
same story repeated several times in the past
years!

…………….

Said to be one of year 2020’s best films
according to movie critics is – Sound of Metal
which is about a musician dealing with his
music-induced deafness.

………………

Whether we like it or not, the Pandemic has
created opportunities for business people
(masks, disinfectants, wipes, clear plastic
masks, etc). The deaf is no exception –
there is a small deaf-owned company that
offers coronavirus disinfection service.

DEAF PERSON AND HARD OF HEARING PERSON ON STREET
DeafDigest editor was walking in downtown
Washington, DC, and was stopped by a stranger who
asked for directions.
DeafDigest editor told the person he was deaf;
the stranger suddenly signed, saying he is
hard of hearing.
The stranger wanted to know where the Audiology
Center building was. DeafDigest editor pointed to
the Audiology building in front of the stranger,
that he overlooked.
Never know if a stranger coming to you is deaf.

A FAMOUS GALLAUDET GHOST
From time to time we hear of tales of Gallaudet’s
most famous ghost – that of Edward Miner Gallaudet,
who served as Gallaudet president for 46 years (1864-1910).
There are people that say they see his ghost at
night at House #1 on the campus, the residence of all
Gallaudet presidents.

Top stories about the deaf:

It seems to DeafDigest editor that the phrase
“hidden disability” has become the buzz for
deaf people seeking employment but not willing
to immediately reveal their deafness!

………..

There was an article, giving advice on how to
turn on captions on Twitter Videos. It said
it is both simple and complicated!

……….

Modern Paint and Body, Tulsa, OK, was praised
in the local media for hiring the deaf. The
owner said no one else would hire the deaf.

…………….

A story about Hearingbot said it could possibly
replace hearing ear dogs to alert the deaf to
sounds and noises. Will it? Many deaf people
love dogs, including dogs as pets and dogs as
service dogs.

………………

A group of linguists were “surprised” that
sign languages have their own dialects. Not
sure why it is a surprise. All spoken languages
have their own dialects, and sign languages
are no different.

A BIG DEAF AGENCY MISSES THE GRANT DEADLINE
This is a true story during the late seventies. A big
deaf agency hired a grant writer. He wrote a great proposal,
but it took so much time. And when he was done writing
the draft, the agency driver had to fight through the
heavy traffic jam to try to make it to the government
agency before deadline time to hand in the proposal.
He arrived late. The government agency would not
accept this proposal.

A SPEECH WITHOUT A PRINTED COPY
In 1966, there was a surprise visitor that came to
the Gallaudet University graduation ceremony.
The surprise visitor was president Lyndon B.
Johnson. No one knew about the visit – not even
the Gallaudet president or the White House.
Johnson arrived at the graduation and immediately
went on the stage to give a speech. After the speech
he left Gallaudet.
Where is the printed copy of his speech? The
Johnson Library archives does not have it. The
Gallaudet archives does not have it.
A big mystery!

has been praised for giving employment opportunities
to deaf and disabled individuals.

………..

The Deaf West Theatre was forced to cancel its
Orphée play – because of Covi-19

……….

A newspaper op-ed ran this headline:

How to Make Protests More Accessible

Well, during Gallaudet’s famous Deaf President
Now mass protests in 1988, many interpreters
volunteered to interpret for no pay, giving up
their regular interpreting assignments.

Automatic accessibility for the deaf? Very
much so!

…………….

Uber Eats is supposed to work with all
eating establishments, Taco Bell, included.
It has become a huge irony that a deaf
driver with Uber Eats drove to a Baltimore
Taco Bell drive in to pick up an order
of a customer – and was refused service
because of his deafness!

………………

a family that uses sign language to communicate
in order to hide themselves from blind

DEAF AND LATE-DEAFENED DEAF SCHOOL SUPERINTENDENTS
We have a list of deaf school superintendents that
are deaf and use ASL very well.
We also have some hearing superintendents that have

Should we put these late-deafened superintendents
on the list of deaf superintendents? Or do they still

THE FAMOUS BASKETBALL MOVIE – THE HOOSIERS
The famous movie, the Hoosiers, was produced in 1986. It
is still the best basketball movie in Hollywood history.
The character, Jimmy Chitwood, who scored the last second
basket to help his high school win the state championship,
was supposed to be deaf. It was part of the script. And
in fact, there was a brief conversation among the actors
during the filming that mentioned Chitwood’s deafness.
Unfortunately, the film editors, cut out the
scene that mentioned Chitwood’s deafness!
