National Deaf Business Institute Re-launches Website Highlighting Deaf Business Owners Media Contact: Ronald Sutcliffe, Executive Director National Deaf Business Institute Re-launches Website Highlighting Deaf Business Owners Washington, D.C. [July 4, 2009] - The National Deaf Business Institute (NDBI) is pleased to announce the re-launch of its website as developed by Viable, Inc, a deaf-owned and deaf-operated company that develops communication access technologies and provides video relay services. "This updated, user-friendly site allows us to share news of interest about deaf business owners," said Ronald Sutcliffe, NDBI executive director. "It'll also have a blog and allow us to bring together deaf business owners around the nation to share ideas, thoughts and experiences." NDBI was founded in 2002 with the purpose of helping deaf people develop skills to start, manage, and grow successful businesses. With the mission of advancing entrepreneurship by deaf people through education, research and outreach, NDBI?s vision is to build economic power among deaf persons by helping increase business productivity. In order to instill a solid entrepreneurial spirit among deaf people, NDBI believes that it is critical for the community to have strong leaders and visible role models. Experienced deaf entrepreneurs are also able to volunteer a few hours every week for any of our various programs for youth, college students, or professionals. "NDBI offers a variety of services to not only deaf business owners, but also to all deaf persons who work in the field of business, in both the public and private sectors," NDBI President Louis Schwarz said. "We strive to develop and serve a community of deaf business leaders by offering programs that provide equal access to the resources available to any business owner. The programs also will provide tools deaf people can use to overcome barriers imposed by society." Sutcliffe added, "We are really appreciative of the generosity exhibited by Viable, and are pleased they are equally committed to promoting the expansion of deaf business ownership in this country. This website is only one of many steps to this accomplishment, and we?re very excited about the possibilities ahead of us." Deaf business owners are encouraged to visit , enter their businesses in the directory, and share news about their businesses or professional accomplishments. .............................................................. BAD EXPERIENCE AT AN AIRPORT A late deafened man flew to Australia, and was checked at the gate by the Australian customs inspectors. The inspectors refused to believe that the traveler was deaf because his speech was perfect. The man tried to explain that while he became deaf he still kept his perfect speech. As a result he was sent to a doctor for a full medical check up to make sure he was deaf and was not faking his deafness! The doctor then gave him permission to enter Australia. - for ASL News version, please click on: (for your convenience, video links are posted on top of each DeafDigest edition) A TALE OF TWO RESTAURANTS For a deaf person to go to a restaurant for a dinner, it is simple. Just point to the menu and tell the waiter the meal choice. Two restaurants were a challenge. - at Vaipando, all patrons are given swipe cards where they use it at the counters to order their food and then use their cards to add up the charges. - at Fogo de Chao, the patrons must use their green cards to tell the waiter to bring different meal choices to them. A deaf person, not familiar with either restaurant, could run into communication problems with the restaurant staff. Would it be just easier and simpler to go to a traditional restaurant instead of a gimmick restaurant? ON THE AIRPLANE It is often that on an airplane ride, especially on a huge jet, that when someone is ill, the flight attendants would ask around among passengers for physicians. And that there would be two or three on board. Now - what about this - what if a deaf person suddenly has a communication issue? Would the flight attendant be able to find interpreters on the plane? Or at least of someone that knows signs (Coda, teacher of the deaf, social worker of the deaf, etc?). VALUE OF DEAF PETITIONS Seems that every time there is something that irks the Deaf Community, then petitions are passed around, asking all of us to affix our signatures. Are these petitions worth the time and effort? No, according to a Deaf Political Insider (Capitol Hill connections). He said: things move very slowly on the Hill; petitions will make no difference A HEARING BUSINESS SENSITIVE TO THE NEEDS OF THE DEAF How many hearing-owned, hearing-run businesses are sensitive to the needs of the deaf? There was a story in the newspapers of a taxi company in South Tyneside, a small town in Great Britain. This company encourages the deaf to use their pagers to send texts to them so that taxis could be sent to pick them up. Was the owner a Coda? No. Was the owner associated with the deaf in some capacity? No. He simply felt it was a good business practice to serve the deaf. AN INTERESTING CI CONVERSATION Recently DeafDigest editor had a long conversation with an old acquaintance who got a CI not too long ago. This acquaintance was hard of hearing all his life; able to function very well with his hearing aid - following radio and TV programs, without captions, regular voice telephone conversations, staff meetings (on a one to one basis, no cross conversations) and so on. Age made him completely deaf and rendering the hearing aid useless. A CI operation was the trick - he now is able to hear things that he was not able to hear when he lost his hearing because of age. He feels reborn. Conversation drifted towards another acquaintance, also hard of hearing that made great use of his hearing aid. That acquaintance also had a CI. Unfortunately it was not a success. Why was it a failure? The reason, according to the first acquaintance, was that unrealistic hopes were raised prior to the operation, and the letdown was psychological. Two hard of hearing individuals; both able to use telephone in the past. Both became deaf because of age. CI was a success with the first person; CI was a failure with the second person. Always a mystery. BEST THING THAT HAPPENED TO AN ARTIST A deaf artist, who requested anonymity, said that becoming deaf at late age was the best thing that happened to her. Why? She said: my eyes began to notice shapes, colors and motion that I would have overlooked during my days as a hearing person TALES FROM FORMER DEAF PIZZA DRIVERS (series to be run on a weekly basis until list of tales run out) I applied for a job at a local Pizza Hut outlet. The manager asked me many stupid questions, wondering how could a deaf person communicate with customers. I then asked him to ride with me in my car and watch me deliver pizzas. The manager agreed, and after one ride, hired me on the spot. It helped I knew the area and was able to get to the address as quick as possible. I eventually became his best driver at Pizza Hut!
