DeafDigest - 10 March 2021

DeafDigest Mid-Week edition - March 10, 2021 -- a bad Hollywood attitude of years way back It was a very bad Hollywood attitude of years way back that if a new movie featured deaf actors, it automatically was labelled as a bad story! Not any more, but still Hollywood continues to cast fake-deaf actors in some movies!   -- doing something about pandemic boredom A great newspaper story came up today about Tom Christian, who is deaf. During the lockdown he decided to track down his biological parents. He was adopted at birth and grew up attending Arizona School for the Deaf and Blind. He is currently employed by a school district in Worthington, Minnesota, working with special education students. It was not an easy task since Arizona is a sealed-records state, but one way or other he succeeded in locating his ancestral family and they are now busy getting to know each other better!   -- NASDAQ snubs deaf and disabled NASDAQ is a stock exchange, second only to the New York Stock Exchange when it comes to daily trading volume. The NASDAQ recently proposed that its' board get more diverse - but their idea of diversity does not include deaf and disabled board members. NASDAQ forgets one thing - there are many deaf people that buy and sell stocks on this exchange. So disappointing.   Deaf jobs - latest update 03/07/21 Blue and Gold editions & sub options at:
