THE DEAF HAIRSTYLIST’S BEST FRIEND
    We have a few deaf hairstylists. Some of them
are great and earn a lot of money in tips from
happy customers.
    For one deaf hairstylist, what is her best
friend?
    Is it an interpreter? No. Is it deaf customers?
No. Is it a boss that is easy to read lips? No.
    The best friend is the hairstyling magazines.
She would show the magazine to the hearing
customers and ask them to point to the picture
of the hairstyle they want!
    This is communication in pictures.

SIGN LANGUAGE ON TENNIS COURT
    Belgium had two famous hearing tennis players –
Justine Henin and Kim Clijsters.
    Belgium has 3 languages –  Dutch, French and German.
Justine spoke French. Kim spoke Dutch. They met
each other for the first time at the age of 10.
    When they were on the same doubles team, they
had to communicate with each other in sign language.
    Both women are now older and they both can
speak English, and they have stopped signing to
each other!

COMMENTS FROM A CART OPERATOR – continuing series
As we celebrate the holidays, it might be fun to look at how some of our
holiday terms are written in steno and a couple potential mistakes that
could happen if captioners and court reporters aren’t careful.
The mistaken sentence translated as:
“The decorations were very festive and seemed so Chris Massey.”
This should read:
“The decorations were very festive and seemed so Christmasy.”
Another mistaken sentence:
“Being in the holiday spirit, she bought a Hannah Cabell collar for her
dog.”
This should read:
“Being in the holiday spirit, she bought a Hanukkah bell collar for her
dog.”

In English the steno reads:
Happy Hanukkah, Merry Christmas, Happy Kwanzaa, and Happy New Yea
