Top stories about the deaf:

The offices with the government of Ireland are just
unaware that there is an Irish Sign Language Act.
As a result, the officials do nothing to push for
and to promote their national sign language.

…………..

What is reasonable accommodation? What is undue hardship?
Such phrases lead to confusion among employers and as
a result, they may not hire the deaf! Do they hire
ADA consultants?

Probably not!

……….

Yossi Ben-Atar, an Israeli radio talk show host,
insulted deaf Knesset member Shirley Pinto, saying
she is dim-witted, cannot speak, stupid, etc.

As a result, the radio show office suspended him.

……………….

In Wales, an interpreter that really does not know
proper sign language, signed so badly that quickly
after the presentation, she was quickly fired.

……………….

A professor in a junior college in Ventura, California
was caught on video criticizing a deaf student
for not responding to his classroom questions.
Instead of being fired, he is still teaching!

BOUNCERS IN BARS
Many bars have bouncers. They have two roles – not allow
underage kids to enter the bars; and to keep peace in the bar
when drunk people want to fight.
Have we had any deaf bouncers? There have been several
deaf bouncers – now and in the past. DeafDigest editor knows
of two deaf bouncers – one was a 285-lb former Gallaudet
football player; the other was the famous deaf fighter
Matt Hamill!
Deaf bouncers can do their job by using gestures.

This week’s ASL video in youtube

VIDEO INTERPRETER OR INTERPRETER IN PERSON?

Sometimes deaf people use video interpreters.
Sometimes deaf people use interpreters in person.
Why sometimes video and sometimes in person?
All depends.
With a video interpreter, a deaf person cannot
try to depend on him to help him with other things.
But with an in-person interpreter, some deaf people
are tempted to ask him to help him with other
things.
Both video and in-person interpreters are not
supposed to “help” the deaf person – just interpret
and nothing else!
