We have deaf people that ride horses; we have deaf pilots; we have a world champion deaf motocross racer; we have deaf auto racers, and even two deaf players in the National Football League. These are "dangerous" sports, that even people that can hear also can get hurt. This being said, Walt Disney World is saying that Segways is too dangerous for the deaf to use and is trying to enforce their anti-deaf ruling via the courts! Disability Rights Advocates for Technology is fighting this ruling in Florida. .. The government of Manitoba, in Canada, announced its commitment to supporting people with disabilities, the deaf included. The government, while saying it supports the deaf, has not mentioned anything about helping the deaf while outlining its ambitious plans to help other disabled groups. ..............................................................

Providing Solutions for People with Hearing Loss. .............................................................. .............................................................. NO INTERPRETER AT AUCTIONS Could a deaf person participate at a hearing auction without an interpreter? There is fast action at auctions, and it is easy for a hearing person to get lost! But what about a deaf person? A deaf businessman told DeafDigest that he goes to auctions without an interpreter! How? The auctioneers know him. And they use their fingers to tell the deaf person the price being bid, and will make sure the deaf person knows the price that has been bid. - for ASL News version, please click on: (for your convenience, video links are posted on top of each DeafDigest edition) .............................................................. 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. .............................................................. ALMOST A DEAF CIGARETTE Many years ago a deaf chemist worked for a big cigarette company. He was analyzing the Virginia Slims cigarette and he had a great idea - a new cigarette that tasted like a bubble gum. The chemist's supervisor liked the idea and formed a new research team to see if a "bubble gum-tasting cigarette" could be successful. Unfortunately for the deaf chemist, the bubble gum cigarette was not successful because it would easily get spoiled quickly on the market. - for ASL News version, please click on: (for your convenience, video links are posted on top of each DeafDigest edition) TAKING A HINT Matt Roloff is well known for his Little People, Big World reality TV series. He is an advocate for the rights and the needs of Little People, especially at hotels. He would invite the hotel general managers to observe him and his wife, Amy, while they struggle to use the hotel room amenities - TV sets, bathrooms, closets, beds, etc. Instead of lecturing, a simple demonstration of their daily struggles, is worth more than 10,000 words. What about us, the deaf? We need interpreters, captions, visual devices, etc. Yes, we have ADA, but ADA does not replace attitudes! SHOCKING REVELATIONS ABOUT THE DEAF? Do the hearing people need to be shocked about their deaf descendants? The Mesa Regional Family History Center in Mesa, Arizona is just about the world's biggest archive of family history records. A story was written up about this center in a newspaper not too long ago. It mentioned that a hearing researcher discovering much to her surprise that her descendants, way back in the 17th century, were three deaf sisters accused of being witches and that one of them was found guilty and hung to death. Said the researcher: I'm not anybody's judge. You really accept the people the way they are She is correct. There are Deaf Skeletons in the Closet, just the same as Hearing Skeletons in the Closet! THESE GOOD OLD PRINTING DAYS A newspaper headline was this: San Francisco Chronicle Outsources Its Printing In these good old (ITU) days of fifties and sixties, inexperienced deaf printers would move to San Francisco just to get jobs at the San Francisco Chronicle newspaper plant. That newspaper had a reputation for leniency towards inexperienced deaf printers, and it was called the "school" job. Printers could learn enough after few months and then move on. YOUR PREFERENCE ON TV Some programs are shown at the same time on two different cable channels. And more often than not, on one channel, the captions are clear but the picture was bad, and on another channel the captions are lousy but the picture was clear. Your preference? We, the deaf, would probably pick clear captions though being stuck with a lousy picture! AHEM, SAY THAT AGAIN! Tyson Gillies, also mentioned in yesterday's Blue edition, was given a good write up in the newspapers for his participation in the minor league baseball all star game. One newspaper said: he has 35 percent hearing in one ear and 55 percent in other ear The other newspaper said: he has 70 percent hearing loss in one ear and 40 percent in the other ear Huh! Loss in decibels was not mentioned; and is there a difference between having hearing in percentages and a hearing loss in percentages. So much newspaper jumbo-mumbo. SOAP OPERA VS REAL LIFE An upcoming soap opera episode in "All My Children" involves two characters - Kendall and Ryan that bicker over their deaf son, Spike. Both Ryan and Kendall could not deal with their son's deafness and seek counsel of a family doctor. In ending the mother refuses to call her son deaf and accuses her husband for being defeatist because he has accepted the deafness. Pretty much sounds, sad to say, true in real life. DeafDigest editor has a distant cousin who split with his wife - because of the same issue - their son's deafness! TALES FROM FORMER DEAF PIZZA DRIVERS (series to be run on a weekly basis until list of tales run out) I had a very large order, approximately 20 pies to be delivered to a hotel. I knocked on the hotel room and all of a sudden many college kids swarmed all over me. It was the Princeton University lacrosse team, staying overnight at a hotel before a big game the next day. They won the NCAA championship that year. Yes, they tipped me very well If you are a former Deaf Pizza Driver and have an interesting tale, please share it with: .............................................................. ..............................................................

DeafHistory - Looking Back: Year 1999 - after a run of nearly 20 years, the AMRAD, an organization of radio and electronics hobbyists based in Northern Virginia, but serving the Washington, DC area, unplugs the HEX BBS. HEX BBS was a primitive e-mail service that served a small number of users in the Washington, DC area - for years - before the Internet became wildly popular. This project was funded by Department of Education, and intended to provide email service for the Washington, DC deaf and disabled community. After the funding stopped, AMRAD continued operating it for years! .. Deaf and the Money: $3,000 - raised by the national Deaf Baseball Team of Cuba, by selling boxes of cigars at the 2000 World Deaf Baseball Championships that took place in Washington, DC. The Cuban players needed hard cash to bring home hard-to-get consumer goods and which was why they, on the sly, sold these illegal Havana cigar boxes. Needless to say, these boxes sold like hot pancakes! The World Deaf Baseball Championships is no longer being staged. Logistical and monetary issues prevented staging of future international deaf baseball classics. ..
