BANK OF AMERICA SETTLES EEOC DISABILITY DISCRIMINATION LAWSUIT
Bank of America, N.A. will pay $30,000 and furnish other relief to settle a disability discrimination lawsuit filed by the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC), the agency announced April 8. According to EEOC's suit, Bank of America unlawfully denied a reasonable accommodation to a more than 12-year, deaf employee, who worked at a Bank of America vault location in Las Vegas. Rather than communicate with the employee using a sign language interpreter, the employee's managers and supervisors used other ineffective communication methods, such as writing notes, which were not understandable to him. / JDSupra

DEAF TEACHER SAYS DISTRICT IGNORED REQUESTS FOR HEARING ASSISTANCE AT GRADUATION
Richard Koenigsberg has been a teacher for 40 years. He's been with East Brunswick High School for 30 of them. He's also deaf, and has been since he was 19. Koenigsberg, an award-winning educator who teaches sociology and film, doesn't use ASL. Instead, he reads lips and has normal verbal skills. He said his biggest challenge is when he's in a meeting where multiple people speak at the same time. "Teachers are encouraged to attend graduation and I have requested in writing that I be provided with a CART reporter," Koenigsberg said. "My requests have been denied." / NJ.com
DEAF MAN SAYS POLICE DENIED HIS REQUESTS FOR AN INTERPRETER
A deaf man says a trio of Sarasota Police officers discriminated against him Monday afternoon and violated his rights by refusing three requests for an interpreter, as they interviewed him about a dispute involving a relative and then ordered him from the home. Christopher Rushe, 44, went to his aunt's home Monday afternoon to visit his mother, who is in very poor health. He got into an argument with his aunt, Shelley Neil, over his mother's finances. Neil ordered him to leave her home. “I said no. I'm visiting my mother,” Rushe wrote during an interview with the Herald-Tribune. / Herald-Tribune
POLICE CHIEF'S HEARING THE SUBJECT OF A HEARING
The North Hopewell Township board of supervisors and attorneys met for a roughly two-hour public hearing to address Larry Bailets' employment. Bailets, a veteran law enforcement officer who is in his early 70s, was placed on administrative leave late last year, according to his attorney Ed Paskey, who said it was over concerns about his hearing. The hearing, which was requested by Bailets, saw testimony from two of the chief's fellow officers and an audiologist who recently tested his hearing. / York Daily Record

Wood, who graduated from Rochester Institute of Technology in 1975 with a degree in social work, was the former CEO of the Commission for the Deaf and Hard of Hearing in Massachusetts, Colorado and New Mexico. Wood has returned home to Massachusetts and is still working just as hard for the deaf and hard of hearing community as when she started 30 years ago. / Woburn Advocate

ACLU SUES OHIO CORRECTIONS DEPT. ON BEHALF OF HEARING-IMPAIRED INMATE CONVICTED OF MURDER
A hearing-impaired inmate serving 15-to-life for a 2002 Portage County killing filed suit against the Ohio Department of Rehabilitation and Correction, saying the department's refusal to replace his hearing aids is a safety risk.

PALATINE MAN ACCUSED OF MOLESTING HEARING-IMPAIRED GIRL
A Palatine man has been accused of molesting a 14-year-old hearing-impaired girl, authorities said. Cory A. Stoval, 24, has been charged with aggravated criminal sexual abuse, a felony, said Cook County Assistant State's Attorney David Shin, and Stoval's bond was set at $400,000 at a hearing Thursday. The girl, who lives in Wisconsin, was visiting her sister in Palatine and was asleep on the couch when Stoval touched her genital area outside of her clothing March 22, the prosecutor said. / Chicago Tribune
DEAF-MUTE CAPITAL MURDER SUSPECT TO LEARN IF HE'LL REMAIN IN HOSPITAL CARE
By the end of the month, the deaf and mute defendant in the rape and murder of a 16-year-old James City County girl could learn if he will remain in state hospital care indefinitely. Oswaldo Martinez, a 44-year-old illegal immigrant from El Salvador, has been in and out of state mental hospitals and courtrooms since he was arrested in February 2005 following the death of Brittany Binger. He was charged with capital murder, but the case has yet to go to trial because he has not been deemed competent to defend himself in court. / Williamsburg Yorktown Daily
DA: DEAF MAN ROBBED IN FRAMINGHAM DRUG DEAL GONE BAD
A homeless man helped robbed a deaf man trying to buy crack on April Fool’s Day, authorities said. Following an investigation, police arrested Joel Figueroa, 21, prosecutor Dan Brunelli said.

The two communicated via cellphone texts. “The alleged victim was shown crack cocaine,” said Brunelli. “He was going to make a purchase and the defendant grabbed his wallet and ran.” / The Framingham Tab

TRANSIT THIEF IS DEAF FROM GROWING UP IN NOISY SUBWAY SYSTEM
Transit fanatic Darius McCollum spent so much of his childhood underground, transfixed by the sights and sounds of the subway system, that he now requires hearing aids, his lawyer said Monday. “My client cannot hear,” attorney Sally Butler told Brooklyn Supreme Court Justice Wendy Williams. “When he was arrested, his possessions — including his hearing aids — were taken from him. I went to the police department where his belongings are, and they are gone.” Judge Williams ordered that his need for the devices be noted on his file. / New York Post

SCHOOLS SERVING LEARNING DISABLED, DEAF TO REMAIN OPEN FOR NOW: SANDALS
A number of provincial schools serving deaf students as well as those with severe learning disabilities will remain open this fall, Education Minister Liz Sandals said on Wednesday — just one day before a large protest and rally is scheduled at Queen’s Park. “This past February, we launched a consultation to better understand the range of quality programs and services that best support our students’ needs at our provincial and demonstration schools,” she said in a statement issued midday. / Toronto Star

LANDON KRENTZ: HOW DEAF AND QUEER SPECTRUMS COMPARE TO EACH OTHER
Landon Krentz is a Vancouver-based arts and events management professional and deaf-queer individual. He has created a series of social media self-portraits to raise awareness of issue that deaf people face. This is the fourth self-portrait in his series. What is Deafness without queerness and what is queerness without Deafness? The Deaf culture and the queer community have a lot in common. In fact, they are parallel with each other. / The Georgia Straight
FATHER CYRIL AXELROD, THE DEAF AND BLIND TRAVELING PRIEST
When one meets this priest, one is immediately struck by his smile, which spreads happiness and light. He is 74 years old, and was brought up with a Jewish family in Johannesburg, South Africa. Fr Cyril Axelrod was born with a hearing problem, and says he was brought up with a lot of love and affection. In the year 2000 he lost his sight completely. With what can best be described as a solar smile, Fr Cyril says that as far as he is concerned, disability is a gift from God. / TVM News
YOUNG, DEAF ENTREPRENEURS ARE BREWING COFFEE WITH A PURPOSE IN JAMAICA
How about a cup of delicious, freshly roasted Jamaican High Mountain Coffee? A Honey Latte perhaps? Or a Nitro Cold Brew? The menu here might not be so out of the ordinary for a coffee place, but this cafe is anything but. Carlyle Gabbidon, 27, and his colleague, Fabian Jackson, 21, two young men with irresistibly warm smiles, served us on a recent visit to the headquarters of social enterprise Deaf Can! Coffee. Both men are deaf. / Global Voices
DEAF MAN MENTALLY UNFIT TO STAND TRIAL FOR MURDER, COURT TOLD
One of three deaf people accused of murdering a profoundly deaf man who fell from an apartment balcony is unfit to stand trial because of mental impairment, a court has heard. Crown prosecutor Michele Williams, QC, told the Supreme Court on Friday that psychological reports had revealed Jake Fairest would not be capable of understanding or following the case if he had to stand trial for murder. Ms Williams said the picture for Mr Fairest's two co-accused -- Warwick Toohey and Georgia Fields -- was less clear. / The Age

Deaf Aotearoa are celebrating 10 years of New Zealand Sign Language’s (NZSL) official language status, with the first all-Deaf voyage on the Spirit of New Zealand.

GOVERNMENT CLOSES EARS TO PLEAS FROM DEAF KIDS' NONPROFIT
A nonprofit that provides social services for deaf and hearing-impaired Israeli children and teenagers warned that it is on the verge of collapse after the Welfare Ministry reduced its funding and skirted government efforts to restore its original budget. The Shema Center for the Deaf and Hearing Impaired, founded in 1968, was protesting in Tel Aviv on Thursday over the ministry’s refusal to increase its funding. / The Times of Israel

CARICATURE LEADS PALESTINIAN DEAF CHILDREN OUT OF SILENT WORLD
Fourteen Palestinian deaf students are taking caricature drawing lessons in a classroom at a school in the West Bank city of Ramallah, the Islamic Charitable School for the Deaf. Local cartoonist, Mohamed Sabaa'neh, volunteered to train students suffering deafness and hearing impairment. The course is trying to explore a new way for those deaf students to interact in the society and through a new technique in drawing, offering them an expression tool and a means to improve their critical thinking. / Xinhua
THIS HEARING-IMPAIRED TEACHER USES SIGN LANGUAGE IN PHOTOGRAPHY CLASS
How has photography benefited the deaf? I have been asked this question umpteen times in the last eight years. To answer this question, I need to share my own story. I used to be a businessman until 2000 when I had a surgery that changed my life; it not only rendered me deaf but also led to tinnitus, a condition that results in a non-stop ringing in the operated ear. At the time, I had no interest in photography. However, due to my new-found deafness, I was forced to give up my small computer business. / Youth Ki Awaaz
RESTAURANT EMPLOYS SPEECH- AND HEARING-IMPAIRED WAITSTAFF
I have often heard my parents and others from the previous generation grumble about how eating out has lost it charm. Another complaint is that servers these days rarely smile. And given that I cannot remember any server flashing me a genuine smile, I am forced to agree. Mirchi and Mime then is a game-changer in more ways than one! Nestled in the Powai area of Mumbai, not only does this restaurant boast of a friendly waitstaff that offers service with a smile (a rarity in itself!), but all 27 servers are hearing and speech impaired. / The Better India
CRICKET STAR BATS FOR THE HEARING IMPAIRED
Former Australian Cricketer Brett Lee is in the city for ‘Sounds of Cricket’, an awareness campaign on hearing loss. The 31-year-old world-renowned bowler will draw attention to the functional, social, emotional and economic impact of hearing loss on individuals and their families. Lee’s son suffered from hearing loss because of a head injury. “Even though he recovered in a couple of months, at that point of time I was so disturbed,” he confided. / The New Indian Express

NEW IMPLANTABLE HEARING DEVICE CAN ASSIST THOSE WITH HEARING LOSS
The University of Missouri’s Ear, Nose and Throat Center is the only health provider in the state to offer a new fully implantable hearing device to patients. Dr. Arnaldo Rivera is the only doctor certified to give the surgical procedure to patients in the state of Missouri as well. “We are hoping this new technology will allow for patients with mild to severe hearing loss to hear with 100 percent clarity,” Dr. Rivera said. Esteem is the name of this new implantable device. / KBIA

AT HOME IN DEAF CULTURE: STORYTELLING IN AN UN-WRITABLE LANGUAGE
Over the years I have developed a habit of looking behind strangers’ ears to check for hearing aids. I often do it on the subway though I know I shouldn’t. This is not even a particularly effective way of finding a Deaf person; many of us don’t wear hearing aids, and plenty of people who do aren’t Deaf, at least not in the cultural sense. Increasingly these days there’s the false excitement of coming upon some newfangled Bluetooth device, and the subsequent letdown in realizing the wearer is definitely not Deaf. / Literary Hub

HOLMEN TEEN RISES ABOVE DISABILITY
When Holmen High School student Sean Deml returned to school in the fall of 2014, he was in for a surprise. The interpreter he had worked with from the time he was in elementary school had left to take another job in another school district. The thing is, Deml can’t hear anything without the help of hearing aids and even then he relies heavily on his interpreter. He was effectively on his own until the school district could find a replacement. / La Crosse Tribune
COVERAGE OF FLORIDA SCHOOL FOR THE DEAF AND THE BLIND IMPORTANT
I am a parent of one of the featured deaf children in Brian Miller’s article of Nov. 6 about the Florida School for the Deaf and the Blind. If you are blessed to have hearing and sighted children, you may not ever have wondered what happens to our children. Who educates them? One just assumes they just grow up to plague society or depend on public assistance to live. After all, they are disabled. Nothing could be further from the truth! / Tallahassee.com
MY LETTER TO PARENTS OF DEAF CHILDREN
Recently the Washington Post featured an article on Nyle DiMarco and his Foundation that aims at improving Deaf infants’ access to sign language education. Nyle got an invitation to the White House Correspondents’ Dinner where he plans to promote his principles of improving Deaf children’s lives. Great story and great goals eh? Well....The Alexander Graham Bell Association of the Deaf and Hard of Hearing got wind of it and just HAD to post a rebuttal article called “Dispelling Myths about Deafness.“ / The Huffington Post

SOLID ROCK DEAF BAPTIST CHURCH SPREADING THE WORD THROUGH SIGN LANGUAGE
The Word is a thing beyond words when pastor Dean Francini delivers a sermon in ASL. "American Sign Language is more pictorial; it's a lot different than spoken English," said Francini, pastor of Solid Rock Deaf Baptist Church, which began offering services late last year in Colorado Springs. The fundamental, mission-minded Independent Baptist church introduces a new regular service tailored solely for the hearing next Sunday. / Colorado Springs Gazette

FLAGLER COLLEGE TO OFFER MASTER'S DEGREE IN DEAF EDUCATION
This fall, Flagler College will start a new master’s program for deaf education. It’ll be the only program of its kind in Northeast Florida. “Having a small college where we can offer that for our students is really important. Last year we had a huge dearth of teachers for the deaf in the Florida area,” said Margaret Finnigan, coordinator for the college's Deaf and Hard of Hearing Program. The master’s program will be offered online. Flagler College is currently taking applications. / WJAX-TV
DEAF STUDIES AND DEAF EDUCATION DEPT. MEMBERS CREATE ASL VIDEO TOURS FOR LOCAL MUSEUMS
Growing up in Beaumont in the 1960s as the daughter of Deaf parents, Kim Hunt witnessed firsthand the lack of access to communication as they visited public places and events. It became her dream to make museums and events accessible for Deaf residents and visitors to her hometown. To turn this dream into a reality, Hunt, now a nationally certified interpreter of ASL, partnered with Cain Chiasson, an instructor and doctoral candidate in the Department of Deaf Studies and Deaf Education at Lamar University, to found Virtual QR Tours. / Lamar University

RUTGERS ASL CLUB TEACHES STUDENTS ABOUT HARD-OF-HEARING LIFE
The Rutgers ASL club teaches students how to use sign language, as well as about different aspects of deaf or hard-of-hearing life. They also work to dispel different misconceptions people have about those who cannot hear as well as the general populace. A group on campus is teaching students to talk without speaking. As it enters its second year as a club at the University, the club continues to teach students how to sign while educating them about deaf and hard-of-hearing culture, said Emily Diep, the group’s historian. / The Daily Targum

And he didn’t disappoint Monday night, when he appeared shirtless and performed a backflip in a tribute to Disney’s Tarzan. “The lord of the jungle is now the lord of the dance,” said judge Bruno Tonioli. / TIME

REVIEW: IN 'HUSH,' A DEAF WOMAN IS STALKED BY A SILENT, MURDEROUS MAN
Exciting, tense, and stylish, Hush plays like the extended third act of an 80s slasher movie. That's both good and bad. On the good side, the nostalgia factor is strong with this one. The setup is simple: a deaf woman named Maddie (Kate Siegel) lives alone in a remote location. One night, a masked man (John Gallagher Jr.) appears at her doorstep, determined to kill her. The original screenplay by Mike Flanagan and Kate Siegel races onward from there. / Twitch
DEAF STUDENTS SHATTER MYTHS WITH SONG, DANCE
Many in the hearing world might think the deaf can't enjoy music and dance, poetry or storytelling. But eight immensely talented students from the Indiana School for the Deaf shattered that myth and several others with two performances of their unique program "Vibrations" at Anderson High School on Thursday. The unique program uses ASL to interpret songs, dance, drum songs, and ASL poetry and storytelling. It's a high-energy show that celebrates deaf culture and dispels any notion of disability. / The Herald Bulletin
