Deaf people of Turkey are complaining that the government is not responsive to their needs, especially interpreters. Said an advocate "I am deaf, and not a person with obstacles in life." A successful businesswoman struggled for 20 years without realizing she was deaf! Lucy Short, who operates a fashion clothing business in England, thought she was deaf in one year and also thought her hearing aid made her "fully hearing". Much to her shock, she was wrong, especially after arguing with her boy friend over miscommunication issues. She has since then made public with her hearing loss. - Very Hot News In Missouri, irate complaints aimed at state legislators are beginning to show results. The deaf people were angry over low priority given to the Mental Health services. The House reps have agreed to establish a committee to oversee the needs of the disabled, the deaf included. And that the mental health programs is one of the issues the committee members will address. - Thursday January 27th In England, young writers dream of being selected to the Royal Court's Young Writers Program. It is where young writers learn how to become serious writers (novels, plays, etc). Aliya Gulamani, a young deaf person, that aspires to become a playwright, was selected to this elite group. - Friday January 28th Catharine McNally, a young deaf woman, equally fluent in ASL, Cued Speech and oral, is the proud winner of the Paul G. Hearne Leadership Award by the American Association of People with Disabilities. She owns Keen Guides, which feeds mobile devices with detailed tours of tourist sites and public facilities. - Saturday January 29th Super Bowl comes up next weekend. There will be many deaf Super Bowl parties everywhere in USA. And many parties are served with all types of food. The USDA wants to make sure the food you eat is safe. The following is a video that is in both ASL and in captions: http://www.youtube.com/usdafoodsafety#p/u/1/hEaSssWQy5g .... Deaf Miscellaneous stuff: Marlee Matlin is helping the Deaf Senior Foundation of Palm Springs raise funds. The foundation goal is to establish a community center and a home for deaf senior citizens. Another goal is to reach out to the deaf in need in the Palm Springs area. ...... Live in a NEW home designed just for YOU. APACHE ASL TRAILS is designed for the Deaf, Hard of Hearing & Deaf/Blind.

Your Single Source for Assistive Technology ............................................................. ............................................................. AMERICAN AND BRITISH NEWSPAPERS DeafDigest editor looks for deaf news in newspapers every day. There have been many, many, many deaf news in British newspapers, but few deaf news in USA newspapers. Why? Is it because British newspapers like to write about the deaf while American newspapers don't? No. More and more American newspapers go out of business; many American newspaper reporters are laid off. As a result, fewer and fewer American deaf stories. British newspapers are different - for ASL News version, please click on the arrow at: http://deafdigest.com/videos/newspapers/ (for your convenience, video links are posted on top of each DeafDigest edition) ............................................................. Western Pennsylvania School for the Deaf sponsors a series of one-day workshops on Educating Deaf & Hard-of-Hearing Children: >From Research to Practice - March 14, 2011 at Pittsburgh - April 15, 2011 at Camp Hill - May 6, 2011 at Scranton free admission for parents of the deaf and hard of hearing information and registration is at: http://deafdigest.com/wpsdworkshops ............................................................. IMPORTANT DEAF JOBS AWAY FROM HOME Many years ago deaf people worked at important jobs in their home towns. Times have changed. We have seen some deaf school superintendents live maybe 500 or 1000 miles from their schools. They fly home every weekend. Same thing with some deaf CEOs of deaf service agencies. DeafDigest thinks this is not good. It is important that the local deaf community know who the deaf superintendent or the deaf CEO is. But if they go home every weekend, then they are strangers to the Deaf Community - for ASL News version, please click on the arrow at: http://deafdigest.com/videos/workingawayfromhome/ (for your convenience, video links are posted on top of each DeafDigest edition) A DEAF ARCHAEOLOGIST We know this phrase - that the deaf people can do anything except to hear - but do we have deaf archaeologists? There is one, according to a quick web search. Theresa Goel, who was honored in 1970 for her work in that field. More information on her seems to be lacking. ............................................................. ............................................................. GALLAUDET'S BLOWN FORTUNE Gallaudet blew a fortune and became "broke." No, no, not Gallaudet University, but that of Elisha Gallaudet. Elisha was a famous engraver of government currency, the money people use to buy and spend on things. He died as a young man in the 18th century at the age of 51. He died before papers could be drawn up to earn money on his engraving work for the federal government. Yes, Elisha is part of the famous Gallaudet Family lineage (Thomas Hopkins Gallaudet, Edward Miner Gallaudet and actor John Gallaudet, etc). Said a current Gallaudet family member: I'm his first cousin 6 times removed. I have tried to get together with some Gallaudet family members but haven't connected yet ITALIAN ROLL AT SUBWAY SANDWICH SHOP In bigger American cities, hearing immigrants, those still struggling with English, work behind the counter at the Subway Sandwich outlets. Normally it would be a challenge for a deaf patron to communicate with an English-challenged immigrant. When DeafDigest editor comes in to order a sub, he always asks for Italian roll; much easier to pronounce it as opposed to other different rolls! LOOKING BACK AT A PAST DEAFDIGEST VIDEO http://deafdigest.com/videos/video-contacts/ (about making political contacts to help the deaf) Do enjoy viewing that video! OUR ORGANIZATIONS SERVING THE DEAF AND HARD OF HEARING We have many, many organizations, international, national and local that serve deaf and hard of hearing people.

The latest Deaf Buzzword is this: Hijacked Captions Say, you are watching the Super Bowl. The captions were about football and all of sudden, you are reading about the latest news of the money problems in Europe. What is going on?????

Ohio's Supreme Court mandated that courts hire interpreters for the deaf in need in the courtrooms. ...... Rene Pellerin's corner: At this writing, I will be traveling alone for my next show! A lot of preparation needs to be done before I fly. It is not an easy task. Let's discuss money. I need to organize various denominations bills to help identify which bill is which. You cannot count on total strangers to take the appropriate amount. Here are some example of how Deaf-Blind and blind people handle money. Organize your wallet in dollar amounts from $1 to $20 in order. For example, my wallet has a divider. The first one is for $1 and $5 bills. The second divider is for $10 and $20 bills. Individuals who are totally blind tend to fold their bills in specific ways help them identify. Technology now can read money with voice or vibratory signals. Stay tuned for my flight experiences.

A Deaf Fantasy Game: DeafDigest subscribers vs Deaf College Bowl participating teams (Gallaudet, NTID and CSUN) at 2010 NAD Conference A warning - some questions are not deaf-related and are tough to answer.

He was also mentioned in Henry V when his death was announced. A. Sir John Falstaff ... Deaf Question of the Week: Q. Since deaf people can do anything except to hear, it also means deaf people can find any job, despite their deafness? A. Yes and no. A deaf person cannot fly on commercial jets which require constant radio communications with the tower. All the deaf person needs is a break, somewhere. send your questions to mailto:barry@deafdigest.com the most interesting questions may be answered in future DeafDigest editions. Thank you. .... Wish List of the Week: that all deaf agencies, pushing legislation on deaf-related bills will never hear this dreaded statement - session sine die It is a Latin phrase which means "dropped the legislation without any further discussion planned" What this means that legislators refuse to listen to deaf-related bills and kill it with "session sine die" We wish this never happens anywhere any time in the future .... DeafHistory - Looking Back: Year 1883 - Josh Tatum, a deaf con man, hoped to become rich by fooling the shopkeepers. He dipped the nickels in gold to make it look like five dollar gold coins. He was caught and he never became a rich man! .... Deaf and the Money: Please go back above to Rene Pellerin's column to see how the Deaf-Blind handle paper money.
