DeafDigest - 09 March 2021

DeafDigest Mid-Week edition - March 9, 2021 -- a stranger in a room There is a reason why many people in the legal profession are uncomfortable with the deaf serving as jurors. It has nothing to do with the jurors' deafness, but of interpreters in the jurors' rooms. They consider interpreters as unwanted strangers. They are still strangers even if they are always neutral. Fortunately, over the years it has become less of an issue.   -- a common complaint with deaf-owned storefront businesses A common complaint with deaf owners of storefront businesses is that their deaf friends wish to visit and hang out without buying anything. Some of them consider the storefronts their "clubhouses" and in some cases it has caused anger and rift between them.   -- a deaf woman and her wedding dress designs Angelina Colarusso, who is deaf, owns her wedding dress design business. The pandemic has hit her business hard, especially with these face masks. Doing something about it, she has asked her son to work with her on a see-through Covid mask design - that would not steam up! It took quite some time and many experimental designs before they came up with one that satisfied her. She plans to reopen her store, wearing the see-through to greet her wedding dress customers.   Deaf jobs - latest update 03/07/21 Blue and Gold editions & sub options at:
