HEARING PEOPLE ARE ALSO DEAF When there are "warnings" of earthquakes, volcanoes, avalanches, and meteorite crashes, many animals can hear these "silent" sounds that warn them to run away and hide. Deaf people can't hear these silent sounds, of course, but hearing people can't, too! - for ASL News version, please click on: http://www.deafdigest.com/hearingdeaf.htm (for your convenience, video links are posted on top of each DeafDigest edition) ................................................................. Deaf Independent Living Association, Inc (DILA) Sorenson at Dorchester Library, Cambridge, Maryland Deaf Independent Living Association, Inc. (DILA) announces the opening of a Sorenson Videophone located at the Dorchester County Public Library in Cambridge, Maryland. The videophone is available Monday-Saturday during normal library hours and is free to use. Sponsored and funded by the Quota Club of Cambridge, the videophone enables deaf and hard-of-hearing individuals to access DILA services without having to travel to the Salisbury Office. "It is an innovative way of making services accessible to deaf and hard-of-hearing individuals who live in other counties on the Eastern Shore without having them travel to Salisbury. The Dorchester County Public Library is the first library on the Eastern Shore to launch this project," says Jennifer Whitcomb, DILA's Executive Director. The Quota Club of Cambridge is a membership organization who has sponsored many programs and services for deaf and hard-of-hearing individuals. For more information, please visit DILA's website at http://www.dila.org or call 410-742-5052 V/TTY; 1-866-947-6923 VP or stop by the Dorchester County Public Library located at 303 Gay Street, Cambridge, MD. The picture of the videophone can be clicked at: http://www.deafdigest.com/DPLVP1.JPG ................................................................. A SMALL TOWN WALMART In big cities, it is common for a deaf person to bump into another deaf person on a crowded sidewalk. This is because deaf population is always high at big cities. But what about small towns? It is very rare for a deaf person to bump into another deaf person, but there is an exception. At the Walmart in Talladega, Alabama, it is common for the deaf to bump into another deaf person. Talladega is where Alabama School for the Deaf and Blind is located; the deaf community in that town has a fairly high numbers of deaf people. - for ASL News version, please click on: http://www.deafdigest.com/walmart.htm (for your convenience, video links are posted on top of each DeafDigest edition) FILM CUTTING AND THE DEAF Before a movie is shown in the public, the film editors cut out a lot of film; scenes are thrown out and the film length is reduced from many hours to about one hour and half. It is tough luck for actors to act in parts that have been thrown out by the film editors. This is normal in the movie industry. What about deaf actors whose roles were also thrown out? Has it ever happened? The deaf character, named Orin, in the movie "Children of a Lesser God" played an important role, but which was thrown out by the film editors! Film editors do not like to include the deaf in the movies because of the large space they require. These editors like to keep close up shots that take little space. .................................................................

We need a converter box to receive Canadian channels! Answer: That's partially true. Not all converter boxes are the same. If you want to watch a Canadian or Mexican TV station along American borders, you need a converter box that has "analog pass-through" which is a feature on more expensive converter boxes. It allows you to watch both American digital broadcasts and analog broadcasts from Canada & Mexico (which are not required to switch to digital). DTV UPDATE: The second House bill to delay the transition from February 17 to June 12 passed. The White House has asked for public comments about the delay ( http://www.whitehouse.gov/briefing_room/dtv_delay_act/ ) which are due by February 9. Although delayed to June 12, many stations plan to stick to the February 17 deadline as the new bill allows it. Stay tuned. Bottom Line: Be Prepared. More Questions?
