Top stories about the deaf:

What is Deaf Divide?

There is a story about it saying that
one group supports CI whereas the other
group opposes CI.

………..

An article said that there is no shame in
wearing a hearing aid because it is becoming
more invisible – same as people saying
deafness is an invisible disability!

……….

A newspaper story said ASL means Automobile
Sign Language, profiling a deaf mechanic
inventing auto-related sign language to
communicate with his boss and his fellow
mechanics.

…………….

Kenya has a law, that has been denounced
as discriminatory – the Elections Act
that requires deaf candidates to be fluent
in Kenyan Sign Language – because what
if the deaf candidate is oral and knows
no sign language!

………………

A deaf Egyptian was arrested in Canada
while seeking asylum. The authorities
confiscated his hearing aid recharger
and only gave him one fresh battery.
This left him unable to communicate
with his hearing aid. The Canadian
Human Rights group is looking into
this case.

A MYSTERY DURING TV MOVIE THAT DEAF DON’T KNOW ABOUT
Many deaf people love to watch captioned movies
on TV.
There is a mystery about it that deaf people don’t
know about.
For example – there was a movie about a family
in Ireland. A woman, from Buffalo, NY, moved to
Ireland and fell in love with an Irish man.
The actress who played the role of a Buffalo
woman was born in Ireland.
A hearing person watching the movie would know
about these different accents, and think the plot
is a fake.
A deaf person would not know it.

DEAF PARTNER NOT GETTING ALONG WITH HEARING PARTNER
Partnerships are like marriages. Some partners get
along with each other. Some don’t.
The same goes for deaf/hearing partnerships. During
the 1980’s a deaf partner did not get along with the
hearing partners and this partnership broke up.
For a while after the break up, the deaf person got
no sales. He was puzzled but found out that the ex-partner
“stole” his sales when hearing customers used voice
telephone to place orders. The hearing partner knew
the old password and the old codes.
The deaf man had the password and the codes changed.
Suddenly his business went up.

Top stories about the deaf:

Buncombe County spokeswoman Lillian Govus (NC)
said that they get accidental 911 calls from
iPhones that sit on some people’s back pockets.

She explained:
If we have a silent call with no disconnect but also no
information, we attempt TTY communications just to
be on the safe side

………..

Cost of a new hearing aid may be as much as
$6,000 for a pair. Why?

A newspaper response was just one word – greed!

……….

Leo Cangiani, not deaf, is campaigning to become
the mayor of Topeka, KS. He knows ASL.

…………….

South Korea movie producers would not cast
deaf actors for deaf roles in their movies.
Jin Ki-joo, not deaf, is playing a fake-deaf
role in an upcoming movie. This is unfortunate.

………………

A promoter of a major musical festival said:

Our staff have been trained in disability awareness
and understand our access provision

RIGHT WAY OR WRONG WAY TO DESCRIBE DEAF
There was a convention last week by American
Psychiatric Association. There was a hot debate
on right or wrong way to describe a person –
fat person, blind person, very short person,
person with criminal mind, person with limited
intelligence, etc.
The convention delegates did not discuss
right or wrong way to describe a deaf person –
such as deaf-mute, deaf-dumb, etc.
Maybe the deaf are not important to
psychiatrists?

ONLY DEAF IN A DINING GROUP
Many times when a group goes to a restaurant
there is a deaf person in it.
The deaf person is lost; he cannot follow the
conversation, so he is left alone with his own
thoughts and dreaming.
Yet, when the group leaves the restaurants
this deaf person is thanked by the hearing diners
for showing up.
Why?

Top stories about the deaf:

Charles Chaplin, the great silent films comedian,
had a favorite artist – and it was Granville Redmond,
a deaf man of many skills. It was Redmond that
taught Chaplin these signs that he used in his
silent films.

………..

A group of five deaf comedians was profiled in a
newspaper story. The American comedians were
Kathy Buckley and Jessica Flores. The sole
Canadian was D.J. Demers. Two others were
Europeans.

……….

Katie Goulding owns a AJ Sunflower Boutique
store in Center Moriches, NY. She is deaf.

…………….

Mark Barlet, not deaf, is a video gamer,
and he said the best way to put captions
into these games is to educate the developers
before they start work on the game programming.
He hopes his idea will work.

………………

A joke or not a joke? This was posted on
twitter:

My ring doorbell is defective. The electrician
says my transformer is faulty but the 30 days
returns period has passed. No way to contact
customer service representative by voice –
so I keyed in “human” in the auto bot,
hoping a human person will come up on
the screen!

DeafDigest does not know what happened.

THE GEICO CAVEMAN ADS ARE FALSE
When we watch TV we laugh at these famous
GEICO caveman ads.
These ads are false. In these ads, the Cavemen
use voice to communicate with each other.
During the Stone Age, the early Cavemen used sign
language to communicate with each other for
many years.
The GEICO ads should have used sign language
Cave Men!

TO AVOID DEAF SCAMMERS
We have many hearing scammers. We also have some
deaf scammers, who want to cheat deaf people of their
money.
How can we avoid these deaf scammers?

– no such a thing as sure money investment
– ask the scammer for their investment certificates
– ask who is the scammer’s accounting firm
– ask the scammer for their web site
– if they promise high interest rates, it is a fake

We have had two deaf scammers that cheated deaf people.
One went to jail; another is in big trouble now.

Top stories about the deaf:

TikTok has been credited for helping preserve
Black Sign Language.

………..

A trio of deaf, stupid and blind individuals
working together to solve a crime? This is
what a new movie – Mugguru Monagallu is
coming up with in India. Sorry, the actor
playing the deaf role is fake-deaf.

……….

Is there an ADA overload over vocabulary?
An activist said he is tired of hearing
such phrases as ADA vehicle, ADA
entrance, ADA experience, ADA captions,
ADA interpreters, etc!

…………….

What happens if a deaf person has no access
to bad weather warnings? He may not know
where the safe escape routes are, and which
routes are closed. This comment was made
by a deaf person in a newspaper story.

………………

AI-empowered apps is supposed to be great, but
it is not perfect. An example is AI making
captions go bad! This was part of a newspaper
story.

A WRONG INTERPRETER FOR WRONG DEAF PERSON
It happens from time to time. A deaf person goes
to a store to order something. The clerk, knowing
the person is deaf, asked a Coda, fluent in ASL
to serve at the interpreter.
It was the wrong interpreter for the wrong deaf person.
The deaf person was oral and knows no sign language, and
bringing in a Coda was a waste of time.
It is frustrating!

HOW TO KILL A JOB INTERVIEW?
This is a true story. A national deaf organization
was advertising for a job as a receptionist/typist.
One hearing woman, ok with her ASL signs, demanded
a very high salary. It was almost equal to the
deaf organization CEO’s salary.
Of course, she did not get the job.

U.S. Army Sgt. Bill Fitrakis, a member of the
Michigan National Guard, has been volunteering
his time as interpreter for the deaf during
their vaccination. When he is not on duty
with the National Guard, he returns to his
regular job – as ASL interpreter!

………..

Olof Hanson was written up in a newspaper
story as America’s first deaf architect
who served during late 19th century
and early 20th century. Historians have
respected him for his work and service
with the deaf – but there is a but!
Was he really the first deaf architect?
Do not know.

……….

At the Orlando Fringe event, interpreters
will be working at selected sites. Not
all sites, just selected – meaning it may
be a problem for the deaf that want to
attend an event that is not being
interpreted.

…………….

deaf activist said:
Hearing-impaired people cannot hear, but they do feel it

that comment was made during a newspaper interview

………………

A TENT AT SOME DEAF CONFERENCES
If you attend a meeting at some national deaf
conferences, you may see a small tent near the
meeting platform.
The tent is used by the meeting parliamentarian.
This is to prevent nosey eyes when the president
asks the parliamentarian some important meeting
questions.
The idea of a tent was invented by Bummy
Burstein, the famous Deaf Parliamentarian.

THE TELEPHONE AND THE AGBELL

We all know that Alexander Graham Bell won the patent
for the first telephone. We also know that he married
a deaf woman, was interested in the oral education of
the deaf, and that the AgBell was named after him.
What would have happened if he did not win the
telephone patent? Bell raced against another man, Elisha
Gray for the first telephone patent. Bell arrived at the
US Patents Office, beating Gray by a few minutes in 1876!
Elisha Gray Association for the Deaf? No way, Gray
was not interested in the deaf. Bell was!
