And now, it is being greatly enhanced, thanks to a $110,000 grant, called PROJECT D.E.A.F. What is the difference between traditional Physical Education and PROJECT D.E.A.F.? A RSD spokesman said: PROJECT D.E.A.F. is simply a major enhancement to existing physical education, wellness and fitness classes at RSD for students. In addition to traditional class offerings, deaf students will have more focused and accessible choices, like kayaking, rock climbing and new technology allowing students to assess and monitor their own, custom fitness goals. .. Reality TV makeover programs are popular with the viewing audience. But not all makeovers are on TV; one such non-TV makeover is greatly benefitting the Clarke School for the Deaf. It is the Whalley Computer Associates announcing Clarke as the winner of the Virtual Technology Makeover Contest. What this means is the school will be getting loads of computer equipment earmarked for classroom purposes. .. Jumping on the Newborn Hearing Screening is the province of Quebec. Mandatory testing of all newborns in Quebec will start in the fall of 2010. DeafDigest wonders why cannot it start now, instead of waiting more than a year? At any rate better to have this law than no law at all. ..............................................................

AN ANGRY VOCATIONAL REHABILITATION COUNSELOR Way back in the 1960's, a deaf vocational rehabilitation counselor was angry. He worked very hard to find jobs for his deaf clients. The problem was the pay was $60.00 per week. His deaf clients turned down these jobs because they found other jobs that paid $85.00 per week. These deaf clients had a choice between $85.00 per week jobs that will remain $85.00 per week for many years or working up the ladder from $60.00 per week but with $5.00 per week raises every six months. In 3 years this $60.00 per week job would become $90.00 per week. Yet, these deaf clients would not wait. That made the deaf VR counselor angry. - for ASL News version, please click on: (for your convenience, video links are posted on top of each DeafDigest edition) IRONY ABOUT CLARKE SCHOOL Clarke School for the Deaf is one of the world's most famous oral schools for the deaf. Many years ago, Grace Goodhue taught at Clarke. She then married Calvin Coolidge, who became the president of USA. There was a newspaper story that was written up about Coolidge's wife teaching at Clarke. The story said that she taught at a school for the "deaf and dumb." The dictionary says "dumb" means a person cannot use speech at all! The newspaper reporter did not understand the word "dumb"! - for ASL News version, please click on: (for your convenience, video links are posted on top of each DeafDigest edition) THE SELF-TAUGHT THOMAS EDISON Thomas Edison, the man of 1,093 patents, was deaf. He did not seek counsel of doctors to see if an operation could help him. He also never went to college, and simply stayed home and taught himself. Why? He felt schooling and a medical operation would disrupt his powers of concentration while thinking of things to invent to make our world better! DEAFNESS AS THE CINDERELLA OF DISABILITIES? A newspaper story was titled: DEAFNESS is the Cinderella of disabilities It said: One in seven people - 14% of the population - has a problem with hearing, but they can find others treating them with impatience and a lack of understanding. DeafDigest does not understand why Deafness is the Cinderella? A Cinderella is a mythical woman, who overcame oppression, to become a huge success. Is this story saying that Deafness is the most successful disability? Some writers make no sense! NORTH CAROLINA HELPING A DEAF MAN START A BUSINESS There was a newspaper story of North Carolina investing $40,000 to help a deaf man start a new business - as a crabber. The money was for crab traps. And for this expenditure, the state Vocational Rehabilitation agency was criticized by Senate minority leader Phil Berger for wasteful spending. This is interesting. Crabbing is practically a dying industry. Wouldn't the state be better off investing $40.000 in a different kind of business to help the deaf client? Just wondering. 100 THINGS YOUR KIDS MAY NEVER KNOW A story was posted on a yahoo site, titled "100 things your kids may never know." It mentions things like a VHS tape, shortwave radio, Starbuck (as a man, not as a coffee), swimming pool diving boards, etc. What about us, the deaf? Our future deaf children may never know about the following: - TTY - hearing aid (if CI completely replaces the hearing aid) - deaf newspapers (Silent News; NAD Broadcaster) - clubs of the deaf - betting at basketball tournaments - Frat divisions - linotype & hot type as top profession for the deaf The list is longer but above is enough. ILLEGAL TO BE DEAF? Matt Roloff, the leading character in the popular "Little People, Big World" reality cable TV series, said in one episode: it is illegal to be a dwarf He was expressing his frustration at being unable to have a home builder modify the local building codes in order to make the facilities dwarf-friendly. He wanted the staircase railings lowered to match the heights of himself and his wife, but doing so, would be illegal. What about us, the deaf? So many things we want, but can't have - leaving us with the feeling that it is also illegal to be deaf! 10-DIGIT QUESTIONS YOU WANTED TO ASK, BUT DIDN'T The FCC, knowing that there many people that wanted to get answers to questions they didn't ask, has set up a web site at: This deals with 10-digit issues which continues to confuse so many of us! TALES FROM FORMER DEAF PIZZA DRIVERS (series to be run on a weekly basis until list of tales run out) I knocked on the door with a pizza delivery. A young kid, maybe 10 years old, opened the door, gave me the money (exact amount owed), took the pizza and closed the door. I was a little upset about not getting a tip, but drove away. I spotted in the rear view mirror of my car, the angry mother chasing after me. I backed up my car to her, opened the window and got the tip that her son would not give me!

Hot DeafNews boring, but important! Even though the Obama Inauguration is history, the The Australian Communications and Media Authority is angry. This Australian agency has scolded Network Ten (Sydney) Pty Ltd for not captioning the inauguration on TV. DeafDigest fails to understand why it took the Australian agency seven months to point its finger at Network Ten. At any rate, a late scolding is better than no scolding at all. ..

Deaf Picture of the Week: Evelyn Glennie, famous deaf British percussionist; most recent picture .. Question of the week: Q. I am confused between the roles of FCC's Disability Rights Office and the state relay office. Could you clarify? A. If you have a problem with the relay service itself, contact your state relay administrator. If you are not happy with a relay policy, then contact the FCC's Disability Rights Office send your questions to the most interesting questions may be answered in future DeafDigest editions. Thank you. .. Wish List of the Week: that interpreters are available on minute's notice instead of giving 5 days notice or 2 weeks notice .. DeafHistory - Looking Back: Year 1953 - the first transistor hearing aid came out on the market. Actually the transistor was invented in 1947, but it took six years before the hearing aid manufacturers picked up on it. .. Deaf and the Money: How are budget cutbacks impacting on schools for the deaf? Let us take Alabama School for the Deaf as an example. The school relies on state funding, and when there are cutbacks, the may be no other resources to get more money. If this deaf school was treated like a local school system, they could push for raising of local taxes. What is true for Alabama, may or may not necessarily be true for other schools. Every state operates differently when it comes to funds. .. DeafNumbers of the Week: A hearing engineer had a successful consulting practice; he suddenly became deaf, and as a result, lost 60 percent of his business. He was able to retain 40 percent of his business; these clients told him that sudden deafness could happen to them as much as it happened to him! ..
