Top stories about the deaf:

Nigeria’s Dr Abiodun Olusesi is Ear, Nose and

FINALLY SOME DEAF FRIENDLY FOOD TRUCKS
What is a Deaf Friendly Food Truck?
There are few trucks that have their
menus listed with #1, #2, #3, #4, etc
dishes.
Very easy for the deaf customer to
show the numbers on his finger for their
food truck menu choice.

Lip reading tale

A hearing traveler and a deaf traveler were
ready to go out and travel.

Make sure to pack our bags

HIRING A CONSULTANT IN A MOVIE FOR NOTHING
From time to time Hollywood people hire a deaf Consultant
to work with directors and producers in a big filming
that involves a deaf actor.

And sometimes hiring the consultant is a waste of time
and waste of money.

Why? Because when filming is finished, the film editors
may cut out scenes that involve deaf actors!

COMMENTS FROM A CART OPERATOR – continuing series

We have seen that the stenocaptioner’s left hand produces the initial
consonants in words, and we have seen that the top key for the captioner’s
middle finger is P, and the top key for the index finger is H.

If both the P and the H are depressed together, you get the M sound. With
a slip of the index finger, a captioner can accidentally turn a P into an
M or vice versa.

Some examples of this would be:
She thought his ideas were good and had some parrot.
The flags were flying at half-past.
Her favorite color was mink.

These should be read as:
She thought his ideas were good and had some merit.
The flags were flying at half-mast.
Her favorite color was pink.

News of the Week – Looking Back 10 Years Ago:

The Ann Arbor (Michigan) personnel office is looking for
the perfect person for the city administrator position.
Part of the job description asks for – the physical
ability to walk, stand, stoop, bend, reach, pull, push,
lift, finger, feel, grasp, talk, see, hear and perform
repetitive motions. Because nobody is perfect, it means
the deaf AND hearing applicants would not qualify!

News of the Week – Looking Back 5 Years Ago:

Deaf people that receive SSDI will be glad to learn that creditors
cannot immediately hold their funds in order to pay off their bills.
And the banks, which hold these SSDI deposits, must follow criteria.
For more information, these SSDI recipients should check with
their Social Security representatives.
