This week’s ASL video in youtube

ORAL SCHOOL VS ASL SCHOOL IN SOCCER

About twenty years ago there was a soccer game
between Rhode Island School for the Deaf and Clarke
School for the Deaf.

This game was interesting because Rhode Island players
used ASL while Clarke players communicated orally.

The Rhode Island school invited the Clarke team to a
dinner after the game. The Clarke coach had his team
sit away far away from the Rhode Island group. The
Clarke players were not allowed to communicate with the
Rhode Island players.

Weird? Yes.

A JOB INTERVIEW
This is a true story. DeafDigest will not mention
the person’s name or location to save that person
embarrassment.
This deaf person applied for a job at an agency
serving the deaf. That deaf person is skilled in
signing ASL, and also skilled in understanding ASL.
That person did not get the job. Why? Because
he required CART services during the interview.
It was an insult to the interview panel because
there already was an interpreter.
So, if you are looking for a job, just be careful
with requesting accommodations to make sure it is
appropriate.

COMMENTS FROM A CART OPERATOR – continuing series

The highest level of certification for court reporters offered by the
National Court Reporters Association (NCRA) is the Registered Diplomate
Reporter (RDR). According to NCRA, “this certification program was
developed to allow high-level, seasoned reporters to distinguish
themselves as members of the profession’s elite.” In its comprehensive
analysis of the profession, Hay Management Consultants referred to the RDR
as the epitome of excellence among court reporters.

In order to be eligible to sit for the RDR examination, the candidate must
be a Registered Merit Reporter (RMR) and have five current and continuous
years of membership in the National Court Reporters Association commencing
with Participating or Registered member status.

The RDR Exam consists of a 120-question, multiple-choice Written Knowledge
Test that focuses on four areas that come from the RDR Job Analysis:
technology (42%), industry practices (22%), NCRA, professionalism, and
ethics (19%), and business practices (17%).

News of the Week – Looking Back 10 Years Ago:

A woman, whose two brothers are deaf, was
flabbergasted by a $200,000 cell phone bill.
Normally the monthly bill is around $175.00
as the two brothers are under her plan. But
when both brothers vacationed in Canada, they
never bothered to update their plan to international
data plan. As a result, thanks to excessive text
messages and video viewings, the bill jumped to
$200,000. With a big and generous heart, T-Mobile
reduced it to $2,500 but the sister has to pay it
off within six months.

News of the Week – Looking Back 5 Years Ago:

Even though pro wrestling is a fake, many people love to
watch it just for laughs. We’ve had a number of deaf pro
wrestlers over the years. But there may be a first – a deaf
American pro wrestler versus a deaf Japanese pro wrestler.
It was announced that deaf pro wrestler Louis Long, Buffalo,
NY, who wrestles under the name of The Silent Warrior will
oppose a deaf Japanese wrestler (his name not known yet)
on November 26,2011 at the Ontario Convention Center in
California.
