Hot Deaf News during the week:

– Hot Newspaper stories during the week:

Quiet taekwondo class inspires students
http://deafdigest.com/tunghung/

A new spin on sign language
http://deafdigest.com/bradwyant/

– Very Hot News

We amuse ourselves by watching these “Iron Chef” wars
on the Food Network.

Do we have our own Deaf Iron Chef wars? Yes. A war was
waged few days ago between the best student chefs at California School for the Deaf-Fremont and the best chefs at the California School for the Deaf-Riverside!

Who won?

Riverside!

– Thursday April 1st

Heidi Atkins Lieberman, current assistant commissioner for Special Education in Missouri, said:

Some people think that, because you’ve had a cochlear implant, you hear like everybody else, and that couldn’t be further from the truth

She is correct. A CI does not make a deaf child automatically
hearing person.

– Friday April 2nd

If Wayne Sinclair, the retired principal, Maryland School
for the Deaf, has his way, then the infamous 1880 Milan
Conference resolution would be repealed.

This resolution refers to the banning of ASL in schools
for the deaf.

Wayne wants to bring this issue up with the International Congress on Education of the Deaf. It was written up in
a newspaper story recently.

– Saturday April 3rd

RIT has a hockey team that will take part in the Frozen
Four, which is NCAA’s national hockey championship
event.

There are no deaf players on the hockey team, but
there is a facebook (http://www.facebook.com/RIThockey)
which has already enrolled nearly 5,000 fans.

The person responsible for the hockey facebook is
Dylan Heuer. He is deaf and majors in visual media.
He formerly worked for Iowa Cubs, a minor league
baseball team, as a press box employee. This coming
summer he will work for another minor league team –
Rochester Red Wings as the team photographer!

APPLE HATES GOOGLE; NAD HATES CBS !
Apple and Google both compete against each other
and they both hate each other.
But there were some important issues that Apple
and Google had to discuss. As a result, the CEOs of
Apple and Google met at a coffee cafe for a meeting.
They met at coffee cafe which is a neutral location
since Apple CEO won’t go to Google office, and the
Google CEO won’t go to the Apple office.
Did it happen to us, the deaf, in the past? Yes,
in 1980, CBS refused to close caption their programs
for the deaf. We, the deaf, from all over USA had
protest rallies in front of CBS offices in big
cities.
The CBS vice president wanted NAD CEO to come
to his office in Washington, DC to discuss it.
The NAD CEO refused to come to CBS office; the
CBS vice president refused to come down to the
street to meet with NAD CEO.
As a result, the protest embarrassed CBS.

INTERPRETING AT CHURCH SERVICES
Many deaf people go to hearing churches. Some
churches have interpreters. Some other churches
do not have interpreters.
Many churches are not rich; they cannot afford
to pay for certified interpreters. They are always
asking for volunteer interpreters.
Which is better – drive at a long distance to attend a Deaf Church or to go to a hearing church
near your home?
You will have to decide which is best!

A FORMER POLICE OFFICER, WHO IS A CODA
Few days ago DeafDigest editor got into e-conversation
with a former police officer, a Coda, fluent with ASL.
He said that the police department used him to deal
with the deaf, be it a traffic stop or a victim of a
crime or domestic issues.
He also said that in most cases the deaf individuals
were comfortable with him because they were not fully
trustful of the police and procedures.
While retired, he is training the police officers on
how to deal with the deaf in all circumstances, their
rights and etc.
That retired officer agreed with DeafDigest that when
the officers take ASL classes, and do not use that
language for a long time, their use would be rusty when
the time comes.

MARLEE MATLIN’S NEWEST VENTURE
We all know who Marlee Matlin is. And she has
a long list of movie and TV roles on her acting
resume.
Even famous performers get rejected. And she was rejected when she wanted a “deaf family”
reality show on TV. Instead of moving on and thinking
of a different script idea, she simply went to YouTube
to launch her “My Deaf Family” show.
As one deaf leader told DeafDigest editor recently
“you have to think outside of the box.”
Marlee very certainly did !

MENTAL HEALTH NEEDS AND THE DEAF
A past administrator of educational programs for the
deaf made this comment regarding mental health needs
of the deaf:

I do not question the availability or quality of mental health services for deaf and hard of hearing persons.  That is a major concern throughout the country. My home state is no exception.

This administrator is correct.

A PUZZLING OIL REPORT IN A TEXAS NEWSPAPER
A while ago, a local newspaper in Jones County, Texas
listed this oil matter:

District 7B – Jones County
Plug/Abandon: Lease: Hughes Et Al. Well No. 4. Field: Sweet Savage (Tannehill). Location: One mile southwest of Avoca, Section 24 of the Deaf and Dumb Asylum Lds. Total depth: 1,749′. Well type: Injection. Operator: Proco Operating
Co. Inc. of Graford. Permit No. 152223.

Deaf and Dumb Asylum? Obviously this refers to the old
name of Texas School for the Deaf. But the school is
located in Travis County. Avoca is a town in Jones
County, which is where Abilene is located.
Just cannot figure it out !

OUR ORGANIZATIONS SERVING THE DEAF AND HARD OF HEARING
We have many, many organizations, both national and
local, that serve deaf and hard of hearing people.
One such organization is:

SayWhatClub

For the organization goals and objectives and its web site, click on:

http://deafdigest.com/saywhatclub/

OUR COMMON FEARS
We are human beings. All human beings have fears.
Some fears are trivial; some fears are serious and need
professional counseling.
Whatever! There was a short posting on a web site,
which outlined these common fears.
It says that that we are afraid of failure, cancer,
other diseases AND becoming deaf.
Guess those that were born deaf and grew up culturally
deaf, do not have that deafness fear because we were already deaf to begin with.

AN EXCUSE FOR NOT WEARING A HEARING AID

WHAT IS THAT SUPPOSED TO MEAN?

he’s challenged every day, with severe hearing loss that makes him legally deaf

challenged every day?

the dictionaries define “challenged” as follows

– lacking something
– presented with difficulties

Yes, we lack hearing but deafness does not present
us with difficulties; we deal with our deafness
and move on

Hot DeafNews boring, but important!

There are five senses (Sight, Hearing, Taste, Smell
and Touch). Baltimore neuroscientist Robert Provine,
not deaf, researched on what makes people laugh.
He said “Deaf people laugh without hearing”. He
meant that laughter does not depend on any of the
five senses but on social interactions.

He is correct

….
