DeafDigest Mid-Week edition – November 19, 2018


— paperwork on discrimination complaint

A deaf person filed a discrimination complaint
with a local agency. The paperwork took four
hours leaving that person exhausted. This may
be the reason why some deaf people feel it is
not worth the hassle!


— reason for no captions

People are complaining that the new video game –
“Spyro Reignited Trilogy” has no captions.
What did the game developer say?

There is no industry standard for subtitles!

This comment is shocking.


— school exam for deaf is unfair

A deaf school had an exam for its deaf
students. The exam asked to describe how
the leaves would sound when people walk
on the ground. The school is in Romania
and the deaf community is upset about
that exam and has asked the Europe
Commissioner for Human Rights to
investigate it.

He is not deaf, and his wife is not deaf.
    Then why does he use sign language to
communicate with his wife?
    Because he wants to save his voice for
singing; he is afraid that if talks too much,
it will hurt his voice.

faking his deafness! The doctor then gave him permission

especially stood out – mocking the deaf!

Glennie, an Englishwoman, who is the world’s best
percussionist? Glennie happens to be deaf!
    And as a matter of irony, the music The Beatles rendered
may have made many music lovers deaf, for it paved the way
to rock music. In essence Lennon was mocking his deaf-to-be

Beware of Fake Apps this Black Friday and Cyber Monday!

This year has seen a rise in fake apps for Black Friday and Cyber Monday. Cybercriminals are hoping to cash in this opportunity to prey on unsuspecting victims that are not entirely tech savvy.

A report by RiskIQ concluded that Black Friday and Cyber Monday is the perfect time for cybercriminals to “feast” on online shoppers, using brand names in their fake apps. The purpose of these apps is to trick people into providing their credit card information to score amazing deals. Online shoppers that are just looking for ways to get the best deals online, end up getting in a fix when they fall for one of these elaborate traps set by cybercriminals.


Seeing how more people will take part in this year’s Black Friday and Cyber Monday shopping extravaganza, cybercriminals will take advantage of brand names to exploit online shoppers with fake apps and landing pages. This, in turn, will cause online shoppers to download malware on their devices inadvertently.

It goes without saying the potential for financial reward for cybercriminals is enormous, with estimated figures from Adobe Digital Index released showing that online shoppers spent an astounding $19.6 billion in 2017 alone. This time around things might be worse, considering the rise of Magecart, a syndicate of credit card skimmers that has already targeted the likes of Ticketmaster and British Airways.

Yonathan Klijnsma, a researcher at RiskIQ, wrote in September: “Magecart attacks are surging – RiskIQ’s automatic detections of instances of Magecart breaches pings us almost hourly.” He added, “Meanwhile, we’re seeing attackers evolve and improve over time, setting their sights on breaches of large brands.”

RiskIQ detected an average of 89,937 instances between August and October of 2018, where Magecart was used.  Out of the 4,331 apps analyzed, 5% of them were found to be malicious. Even though the names used in said apps were not mentioned in the report, but it is highly likely that popular platforms like eBay and Amazon were mentioned time and time again.

To avoid getting scammed, online shoppers are advised to only download and install apps directly from Apple’s App Store or Google Play. Additionally, they should be wary of unreliable Black Friday or Cyber Monday links on social media platforms like Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook.

If you are afraid of losing your confidential information and need something more apart from the steps mentioned above, then you should use Ivacy VPN. With it, you will get a new IP address, thus masking your internet traffic, which then causes you to become invisible to cybercriminals, hackers, monitoring agencies and even your own ISP for that matter. But what is even more interesting is that you can also use Ivacy VPN to save money while shopping online.

Get Ivacy Now

Just like any other service online, Ivacy is offering its own deals to celebrate Black Friday and Cyber Monday. Feel free to score an amazing deal on internet freedom, security, and anonymity like never before!

Access Your Favorite Shows This Fall Using the Best VPN for Streaming

One of the best reasons to love fall isn’t Halloween, everything pumpkin spice everything or the return of sweater weather, but, that all our favorite television shows are back.  

From the controversial “Conner’s” and “America to Me”, there are a lot of can’t-miss shows this year. Thanks to all the new channels popping up, the streaming services, and just about every brand making content, there’s a show for everyone out there.

Don’t Worry About Accessing Blocked Websites

If you’re a VPN user who’s always on the move, you’ll be able to catch every show without worrying whether or not you can access blocked websites when in whatever country you happen to be visiting.

We compiled a list of some of the shows the VyprVPN staff is most excited about seeing this fall because like everyone else, we’re pretty excited “Saturday Night Live” is back, too.

With a Streaming VPN, Access These Favorite Shows This Fall

Ozark – Netflix  

Need the best VPN for Netflix? Back for its second season, “Ozark” is one of Netflix’s best crime shows. Featuring Jason Bateman, “Ozark” is a far cry from his “Arrested Development” days and instead places Bateman inside the darkest corners of what it’s like to be caught between a southern crime family and the Mexican cartels.  

The Deuce – HBO  

Who doesn’t love the gritty, broken New York of the 1970’s? David Simon and George Pelecanos are back doing what they do best: showing us the underbelly of what America’s biggest city was like before Times Square became the LED mall it is today.  

Kidding – Showtime  

“Eternal Sunshine of The Spotless Mind” changed Jim Carrey’s career. The movie changed Carrey’s career from simple “The Mask” slapstick comedian to an actor with untold depth. Carrey and director Michel Gondry have teamed up again, this time for “Kidding”. “Kidding” is a series about a children’s television host called Mr. Pickles. 

Carrey plays a man possessed, someone who’s supposed to never get sad, to cherish happiness, but realized he lives in a world full of divorce, death, and sadness. While it sounds bleak on the surface, “Kidding” is an artistic leap into the unknown and will undoubtedly be one of the best shows on the air.

My Brilliant Friend – HBO 

This is HBO’s first series in a language other than English: Italian.  

An adaptation of Elena Ferrante’s tour de force, the story follows Elena and Raffaella, two women who meet as kids in Naples, but moves along as the women experience lives that are filled with anger, lust, and sometimes, violence. The show premiered at the Venice Film Festival to rave reviews.

American Horror Story: Apocalypse – FX 

Through its eight seasons, AHS has managed to tell a few compelling stories, while others have fallen apart pretty quickly. The show nonetheless remains one of the most interesting, due to its willingness to commit to massive, sprawling storylines that challenge norms, and find new ways to scare us.

The Cool Kids – Fox 

“The Cool Kids” could be a dark horse for comedy if you base the show off the chops of the cast: Vicki Lawrence, David Alan Grier, Martin Mull, and Leslie Jordan – that’s a murderer’s row of classic comedy hutzpah. Drawing likeness to “The Golden Girls”, “The Cool Kids” is about a crew of misfit retirees and their hijinks – but set in the backdrop of their nursing home. Charlie Day from “It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia” fame acts as producer on the show, so there’s a good chance a lot of buttons will be pushed.

The Haunting of Hill House – Netflix  

Hyped as this season’s “Stranger Things”, “The Haunting of Hill House” has a lot of people talking. Based on Shirley Jackson’s 1959 novel, the story is a long, dark, and twisted narrative that goes from merely spooky to downright terrifying. PLUS, there are hidden ghosts strewn throughout the show.

House of Cards – Netflix 

Having a few down seasons, and then Kevin Spacey’s ultimate removal from the show, Claire is now in charge of the White House, and it’s her world now. Literally. While Frank was removed from power in the last season, Claire was put in place, while Frank still called the shots behind the scenes, but then Claire stopped answering the phone. “House of Cards” could be back to top form, and we should all hope so given the last few seasons were mediocre at best.

The Marvelous Miss Maisel – Amazon Prime  

Talk about a show that cleaned up in its first season: it racked up 14 Emmy nods, including Best Comedy and Best Actress. Rachel Brosnahan and Alex Borstein prove to be quite the pair, taking on the status quo of what comedy is and how it evolves in new mediums like Amazon or another streaming service.

Mr. Robot – Amazon Prime 

The hacker drama is back for season three with its ambitious plot and twisting storylines. After two Emmy-winning, critically acclaimed seasons, the new season will (hopefully) address some of the twists from season two, but also have a bit faster pacing. But, for fans of the show, they’ll tune in to see the beautiful production values, but also the superb storytelling that frankly should be much larger than it is. We’ve got the final 10 episodes to savor this year, and we’re beyond excited. The realistic hacking is as thrilling as the character development. Our recommendation? Be like Elliot and use a VPN.

What shows are you looking forward to this year? Hit us up on social media, we’d love to hear what you can’t miss, and what we need to be watching too.

DeafDigest Mid-Week edition – 2018/11/16

DeafDigest Mid-Week edition – November 16, 2018


— non-ASL body langauge

What is non-ASL body language? It is the way people
write, drink, and walk. And even sitting positions,
eyebrow movements, shoulder movements and so on.
This topic was written up in a story today. Not
easy, during a business meeting where comments
are so quick across the table that even interpreters
and deaf participants have problems keeping up with!



— hearing comedian is scolded for mocking the deaf

Deaf celebrity Nyle DiMarco scolded comedian Dane
Cook for mocking the deaf. Dane hinted that deaf
people wake up late for work due to inability
to hear the alarm. After Nyle scolded him,
Dane quickly removed his tweet!


— two years to set up closed-captioned scoreboard

The New York Red Bulls professional soccer team
has added closed captions to its scorebaord at
Red Bulls Arena in Harrison, NY, not too far from
New Jersey Turnpike. But before putting up closed
captions, it took two years of research, survey
and discussions. This bothers DeafDigest. Why
two years? If everyone agrees the scoreboard
should be closed captioned, then great, but
why two very long years before it finally happens?

Nov 16 Open Thread

I am pretty much fine with a leadership fight after an election. So a challenge to Nancy Pelosi in and of itself seems fine. It’s a little weird coming right after a major pickup in the House. I think Nancy Pelosi is great, but leadership challenges help define the party.

The Best Cyber Monday Holiday Deals are Here

Feel free to check out more amazing Cyber Monday 2018 deals UK  here.

7 Tips to get the Best Bargains for Cyber Monday 2018 Deals UK

1.      Shop with your Friend

By shopping with your friend, not only will you have fun, but it will allow you to make the most of your time. If you have top priority items on your list, then your friend can help you get your hands on them pronto.

2.      Check for Early Deals

Retailers put items on sale way before Cyber Monday, so make the most of it. Get everything on your shopping list sooner rather than later. But do keep in mind, there is a possibility you are not getting the best deal, but you can check and compare prices online to make an informed decision on whether or not you should go ahead with a purchase(s) or not.

3.      Your Shopping List should be Prioritized

While preparing your list of must-have items, prioritize them by store and then importance. By doing so, you can focus on items that you can’t miss while visiting each store. As soon as you get there, be sure to check out the department for the item you want to purchase.

4.      Get Discounted Gift Cards

Scoring deals are incredibly fun, but it can be tough for those who do not know where to begin. If this is the case with you, then you should look into discounted gift cards.

Before shopping online, check to see if there are any gift cards available for the particular store you plan to shop from. Once you find the gift cards you need, use them to save a ton of money, which you can spend on something else.

For instance, if you get a £100 for £50, your purchasing power remains £100, although you will pocket £50.

5.      Subscribe to Emails

If you know for certain where you are going to shop, then visit their websites to sign up for their newsletters. This needs to be done at least two weeks before Cyber Monday since it takes time before you are added to the respective website’s mailing list.

6.      Understand and Realize not Everything is a Deal

You will come across plenty of sites making bold claims about the deals they are offering, but know this: not everything you come across is actually going to save you money, let alone be a deal of any kind.

Retailers hold back dropping prices until the end of December, which means you can get a better deal if you can wait it out. But then again, this depends on whether you can actually wait, but if you do, you will save a lot more than before.

7.      Go Shopping on the Wednesday before Friday

The prices on Cyber Monday may not necessarily be the lowest, so you may end up paying more than you should. To prevent this from happening, visit your preferred retail store on the Wednesday before Cyber Monday to purchase whatever it is you want.

Not using Ivacy VPN will prevent you from using the internet in all its glory.

Should you Shop Online for Cyber Monday 2018 Deals UK?

If there are things you have been wanting to buy for quite some time now, this is the right time to get your hands on them. It is also a great time for you to get Christmas presents way ahead of time, so you don’t have to scurry at the last moment. But if you can wait, as already mentioned earlier, you could score even better deals if you wait till the very end of December.

Only if you shop online, and if you opt for this route, you will need Ivacy to cover your tracks though. There are plenty of reasons why you need a VPN while using the internet – apart from gaining access to any and all UK stores, you will be able to keep yourself safe and secure on all fronts.

You will no longer have to worry about being compromised, nor will your information be used without your approval ever again. Even your own ISP will not be able to track your internet traffic, which is something not a lot of people pay attention to.

Cyber Monday holiday deals only happen once a year, so don’t miss out on this opportunity. For those times when you are tempted to shop online, make sure you have Ivacy VPN covering your back. Rest assured, you will benefit from greater purchasing power, thus ensuring you get the maximum savings possible. In fact, these savings will pay for the price of Ivacy’s subscription for you, technically making it free for you if you think about it.

Using Ivacy VPN is more of a necessity rather than a luxury.

Protect yourself while Shopping for Cyber Monday 2018 Deals UK

There isn’t a shadow of a doubt that you will want the best Cyber Monday 2018 Deals UK, but that does not mean you shop at just about any online shop you come across. There will be numerous shops where you will find unbelievable discounts, but if something is too good to be true, it most probably isn’t. But if you still want to go ahead with a particular online shop, just make sure it is reliable.

Scammers are always looking for ways to compromise internet user, especially those looking for Cyber Monday deals. Since most people aren’t entirely tech-savvy, they do not know how scammers can trick them into giving out their private and confidential information. To avoid becoming an easy target for scammers, cybercriminals and hacker; you need to use Ivacy VPN.

For those wondering how Ivacy VPN works, apart from unblocking sites, the service ensures your IP address remains masked. So when you connect to a VPN server, you get a new IP address. Since your internet traffic is masked this way, it is impossible for your personal and confidential information to be compromised.

Once you sign up with Ivacy VPN, you will get a slew of additional features that will let you do much more than shop online. Considering the fact Ivacy is a solution for all your internet needs; you can use it to stream and download content regardless of your location. Torrenters too will benefit from Ivacy due to its P2P optimized servers. Basically, the list of features can go on, justifying Ivacy’s presence for day-to-day activities online.

Apart from the aforementioned retailers, Ivacy has its very own Cyber Monday deal for 2018, they are:

  • 87% off on a 5-year plan at $1.34/month
  • 77% off on a 2-year plan at $2.25/month
  • 66% off on a 1-year plan at $3.33/month
  • 50% off on a 3-month plan $4.99/month

If you have been looking for a reliable VPN, you should look no further. The best part? You will not have to break your bank in the process. You will pay the lowest possible price for countless features, all the while getting customer support around the clock. If you are not happy with the VPN service provider, then you can use its 30-day money back guarantee, except for when you get a monthly subscription, in which case you get a 7-day money back guarantee instead.

Make the right move, get Ivacy VPN to get Cyber Monday 2018 deals UK. Save as much as you can, and use those savings to make big purchases that you could not before.

DeafDigest Mid-Week edition – November 15, 2018


— an All-Time Dream Deaf-Hearing Musical performance

DeafDigest thinks it is a first – an all-time Dream
Deaf-Hearing Musical performance. It is scheduled
for December 16, 2018 in Detroit, Michigan.
The famed Detroit Symphony Orchestra will perform
together with the Big Three of Deaf Music –
percussionist Evelyn Glennie, singer Mandy Harvey
and rapper Sean Forbes. Interpreters on stage?
Hope so. These three deaf performers are
interesting – Glennie does not sign; Harvey
does not sign; Forbes does!



— the blind teaching the deaf

Way back in the sixties, services for the deaf were
non-existent in a middle-sized American city. It was
so bad that in one classroom a blind teacher had a
deaf student. And there were no interpreters. Times
have changed.


— a reason some schools resist ASL courses

ASL courses are growing in popularity in schools
and colleges across USA. Yet, there is still
some resistance. Reason is that opponents feel
ASL is not a written langauge and so, cannot
be accepted as a foreign language credit!

DeafDigest Mid-Week edition – November 14, 2018


— deaf person does not want captions

A deaf woman, whose husband is hearing, wrote a letter
a newspaper editor, saying she does not want captions
on movies and TV. Even worse, she would not ask her
hearing husband what the story and the dialogue is
all about. She was afraid that hearing people would
be bothered by unwanted captions!


— deaf filmmaker has many roles

Hollywood hires many different people for many different
roles in making a movie. With Deaf Films, a deaf filmmaker
does everything himself – writing, directing, producing,
casting, starring in the film, marketing, publicity
and making personal film appearances. This is why
perfectly shown deaf films are amazing.


— rubella possibly coming back

Rubella is a disease that often causes deafness in
babies. It comes back, goes away and then comes back
