DeafDigest Mid-Week edition – January 14, 2019

 

— a vague business license

South Lake Tahoe, Nevada announced
that a business license was issued to
an individual. It said it was for

sign language

Sign language teacher or Sign Language
interpreter? Not all sign language teachers
are interpreters; not all sign language
interpreters are sign language teachers!

 

— many deaf owned businesses, no business directory?

There was a story about the state of Maryland having
these approximately 75 deaf-owned businesses. This is
great – just that there is no directory that lists
these deaf-owned businesses! Deaf people in Maryland,
as well as in these neigbhoring areas of Washington, DC
and Virginia would love to know if there are deaf
locksmiths, deaf car mechanics, deaf house painters,
deaf carpenters, deaf attorneys, deaf accountants
and so on.

 

— hated being followed by interpreters everywhere

A deaf woman, who enrolled at a hearing college years ago,
was always followed by interpreters everywhere she went –
no matter where – classrooms, dorms, athletic practices,
social events, etc. She hated it. As a result, she transferred
to Gallaudet. DeafDigest is mentioning it because there
was a story today of an Ivy League deaf freshamn student
being followed by two interpreters everywhere. He said he
likes being followed; will he continue to like it or
will he get tired of it?

Open your thread

Hey everyone, please learn to stand.

In an open thread last week, I mentioned that people on public transportation who stand in front of open seats are the way. But Seattle has a problem with people standing in all sorts of wrong places. In doorways. At the counter after they pay. On the curb cut when the walk sign is on.

Top stories about the deaf:
Hearing people that love coffee do not know sign
language. How were they able to order their coffee
from Deaf-In-Business, a cafe in Malaysia.
There is a huge sign in front of the counter
that shows different signs for Espresso, Cappuchino,
Cafe Latte, etc.
In Shillong, a region in India, a workshop took place
for district officers. It is “Accessible Election for
the Deaf and Hard of Hearing People.”
Deaf said that. Hearing said that. This incident
was in reference to the Dunkin’ Donuts shop in
Jacksonville, Illinois. The deaf said hearing
won’t communicate. The hearing said he
communicated but the deaf person wouldn’t
understand. The issue was an order for a
vanilla coffee. There are three varieties of
the coffee, and the hearing person wanted to
know which variety the deaf person wanted. It
went on back and forth. Hence this issue –
the hearing said that. The deaf said that.
Do hearing people in India listen to the deaf?
Well, there was a recent workshop where Miss Deaf
Asia, as the keynote speaker, gave advice to
100 hearing women interested in business careers.
Prosphen Okiemute, who is deaf, graduated from
University of Ibadan in Nigeria and is an
attorney. The university said this deaf attorney
is one of their most successful graduates.

TWO DEAF HOUSES NEXT TO EACH OTHER
    Some time ago two deaf families lived in houses
next to each other. Both houses had side doors
that faced each other about 20 feet apart.
    When these deaf people from one house wanted
to communicate with someone from the other house,
they just stood in front of the windows of the side
doors and chatted in ASL without leaving their houses.
    Not any more, both families moved away.

DR MARSTERS AND THE TTY MACHINE
    Dr. James Marsters, who died few weeks ago, was
written up in many hearing newspapers. They said
he was involved with the first TTY machine in 1964.
    Weitbrecht was already using his Radio Ham TTY
machine to communicate with other hearing Radio
Hams from 1940’s to 1960’s.
    Marsters and Weitbrecht did not know each
other before a friend introduced them. Marsters
was a frustrated dentist, not able to use voice
phone to communicate with his hearing patients.
    With Marsters’ encouragement, Weitbrecht
converted a Radio Ham modem to a Deaf TTY
modem in 1964.
    Marsters and another deaf partner founded a
company that manufactured Deaf TTY modems.
This company helped the Deaf TTY network grow
very fast.

Rene Pellerin’s Corner:
I traveled to Colombia, South America for 12 days.
The country is much older than United States!
The sidewalks were difficult to navigate due to bricks
and cobble stones.
Many sidewalks were narrow with many street vendors trying
to sell their products.
Also some of the older buildings had wooden decor
exposed on the outside walls for me to crash into!
I told my wife that I brought the wrong white cane!
My other white cane has a special tip called “All Terrain”.
It would have allowed me to go through more smoothly than
getting stuck in between cracks!
Overall, it was an interesting and cultural experience for us.
Rene’s show business started in year 2010 and it focuses on the
Deaf-Blind.

Top stories about the deaf:
The state of Oklahoma has proposed rules that
may affect the deaf that are in the need of
services. As a result, the state Department
of Rehabilitation Services and the Oklahoma
Rehabilitation Council will have open hearings
to get feedback from the deaf.
Shirley Pinto, who is deaf, may possibly
become the first deaf member of the Israeli
Knesset. Would she fight on behalf of the
deaf and the disabled, or would the violent
world of Israeli politics overwhelm her?
There was an announcement that said:
Football Hall of Fame adds deaf interpreters to tour
DeafDigest has a question – will these interpreters
understand football language (first down, touchdown,
tackling, blocking, audibles, etc)?
Or is the hall of fame going to hire certified interpreters
that are not football fans and consequently know nothing
about this sport?
Warren Schwab has departed us; he founded The Learning Center
for the Deaf in 1970 in Framingham, MA. This tiny
school has grown to become on the largest deaf programs
in the New England region.
Deaf Activists in Nigeria said that when the government
makes a policy decision to help the deaf, they are never
consulted in the first place.

BE CAREFUL WITH A JOB INTERVIEW AT A SCHOOL
    Economy is bad; it is harder to find jobs. But
if you try hard you will find a job.
    The job interview is very important. You must be
careful of what you say during the interview.
    This is a true story. A deaf man was being
interviewed for a job at a residential school for
the deaf.
    During the interview, the deaf man told the
principal that he was thrilled about the possible
job.
    The principal asked why. The young man said:
my favorite college football team is in this state
    Of course, he did not get the job!

Lip reading tale
A hearing friend was dining with a deaf friend
at a restaurant.
A third person just passed by their table.

This is Jeff
or did he say:
This is chef
not wanting to make a big thing out of it,
the deaf person let it go, still not knowing
if it was Jeff or the chef!

HEARING GESTURES; DEAF ASL
    Are Hearing Gestures same as our ASL?

COMMENTS FROM A CART OPERATOR – continuing series
Some people have asked about the captioning of songs and why broadcast
captioners and CART captioners sometimes do not caption song lyrics.
What Deaf and hard-of-hearing people may not realize is that even people
with normal hearing may have a very difficult time understanding song
lyrics. If a realtime captioner is not given the song lyrics in advance of
the captioning assignment, it may be very difficult to comprehend what is
being sung. Sometimes people may have heard a song hundreds of times and
still not be able to understand the lyrics.
Although my mother was not a captioner or court reporter, she had normal
hearing, and she would sometimes sing along to the radio. I will never
forget the day I heard her singing along with a Fifth Dimension song about
“The Angel Aquarius.” It should have been “The Age of Aquarius.”

News of the Week – Looking Back 10 Years Ago:
    A tale is going on and you will need to determine if
it is a fact or a fiction.
    A deaf-blind vendor operates a successful business,
selling hotdogs on a cart in a major city street
corner. The income he earned gave him a comfortable
lifestyle.
    His son went to college and in one of his classes
(economics) he learned from the professor that
our economy is due for a nose dive.
    Alarmed the son warned his deaf-blind father
that his hotdog sales will also nose dive because
of that bad economy.
    As a result, the hotdog business nose dived,
forcing the father to close up his stand.
    Question is – if the son kept his mouth shut,
would the father continue to think the business
was great? Or because negative thoughts entered
the father’s mind, his business nose dived?
    Good economy or bad economy, people will always
be hungry around lunch time and a $2.00 hot dog
is always a bargain!
-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-
News of the Week – Looking Back 5 Years Ago:
2014 is in and that means all FCC captioning rules are now
in force. Of course there are always providers that
plead for exceptions.

µTorrent is a household name in the torrenting scene and has been around since as early as 2005. Regarded as the most widely used free torrent client, uTorrent has also attracted its fair share of criticism over the years, mainly because of ad-support and bundled software.

People often tend to wonder why BitTorrent runs its own BitTorrent client when it is already maintaining uTorrent (above). While we cannot possibly answer that question, we would like to assume that the BitTorrent app is a rebranded version of uTorrent.

DeafDigest Mid-Week edition – January 11, 2019

 

— a wheelchair basketball player that is deaf

from an email that came up today:

Hi Barry,

I have something that I thought you might be interested for your Deaf
Digest Sports website.

My son Kerwin Haake is a sophomore at Kentucky School for the Deaf
and plays for the Cincinnati Dragons wheelchair basketball team.▒
Their team is currently ranked #10 in the nation and is their leading
scorer averaging around 15 points/game. There are about 10-12
colleges in America that have college wheelchair basketball teams and
Kerwin is hoping to play for one of those colleges when he graduates.

I’m including a link to our team’s Facebook page (Kerwin is the
player wearing jersey #1) that has some pictures/video and another
link showing the national rankings. If you’re interested and need
more info, please let me know.

Thanks,
Mike Haake

 

 

— be careful if using iPhone to access banking accounts

A deaf woman used her iPhone to access her banking
accounts. Not only her money was wiped out by scammers
but the bank refused to help her. In other words, it
was bank’s hands off attitude. She had no idea how
the scammers were able to access her passwords.

 

— deaf who do not want to learn language

There was a posting about choice between
being blind or being deaf. A linguistics
professor asked his class:

What would your life be like if you had never
learned a language?

The professor said that without language
there is no quality of life even if the
person enjoys language-less life!

Jan 11 open thread

I don’t poop at Starbucks enough to know if it’s common, but the restroom in the one in Capitol Hill has a sharps container. This seems correct for harm reduction. If people were shooting up before, it’s better than used needles going in the trash, or being reused.

Year of the data breach: 2018 in review

2018 proved to be the year of the data breach.  

Throughout the year it seemed nearly routine that a different company was having to come forward to notify its customers that their user data may have been compromised, and that personal information had been left exposed. 

Of course, that’s just the data breaches that the public even knows about, the ones that have made headlines; many more have happened that will never get any ink in the press. The reality is that no one that collects data about its customers is safe from a potential attack, and hackers are busier than ever trying to mine valuable data out of any organization or company they think shows signs of vulnerability to a breach. 

Anyone from large hotel chains, government agencies, social media giants, credit bureaus, health insurance companies, retailers –you name it, they all were hit in 2018. And because of this far flung intrusion of personal information there are literally millions of victims of data breaches that are none the wiser about what has happened to them.  

This has turned out to be an alarming era where too many companies have shown themselves unprepared or even reckless with protecting customer data. So, in an effort to be proactive with protecting user privacy, Golden Frog’s VyprVPN came to the decision to become a No Log VPN service. The transition to No Log means not only does VyprVPN offer users encryption for data shared over the internet, but VyprVPN is a now also a No Log VPN service. Which means that we do not record or retain any service usage data from our users. 

Here’s a look back at some of the most egregious data breaches of the year, and why it has been a wakeup call for both companies and the general public about why more has to be done about protecting customers with reliable encryption. 

 

Quora  

Breach announced: December 3, 2018 

Breach details: The crowdsourced question and answer website Quora, sheepishly announced that no less than 100 million of their users had their account information exposed to potential misdeeds. The breach is thought to have compromised email addresses, user names, encrypted passwords, as well as any data that users authorized Quora to import from social media platforms such as Facebook. Direct messages were also thought to have been hacked. 

All Quora users were promptly directed to change their passwords and to be diligent about safeguarding themselves from any potential phishing scams in their email boxes since their Quora account information was potentially at large. 

 

Marriott Hotels 

Breach announced: November 30, 2018 

Breach details: Marriot International saw their customers compromised in one of the most serious corporate data breaches in history when the data of as many as 500 million of their guests had their personal information swiped from them. The breach is believed to have occurred slowly, beginning in 2014 and being halted on September 10, 2018. Among the data thought to have been stolen were guest names, personal mailing addresses, phone numbers, email addresses, passport numbers, guest account information, birthdates, gender, arrival and departure information, reservation dates, and even communication preferences (which would aid a potential scammer in contacting a victim). Some unlucky guests also had their encrypted payment card numbers and payment card expiration dates exposed to fraudsters. 

 

Facebook 

Breach announced: September 28, 2018 

Breach details: Facebook announced that at least 50 million user accounts had been compromised. Details are still being learned about what exactly fell into unwelcome hands during the breach, and to what extent that user data was violated, Facebook is continuing to investigate…hopefully they’ll be completely transparent about what they find out. In any event, the tech giant felt compelled to reset 90 million user accounts as a precaution. 

 

T-Mobile 

Breach announced: August 28, 2018 

Breach details: Over 2 million T-Mobile customers had their personal information left vulnerable to hackers. The breach saw personal information such as customer names, billing zip codes, phone numbers, email addresses, account numbers, and other billing data left exposed. The company was able to combat the breach in time to secure sensitive data such as user passwords and social security numbers from becoming stolen. 

 

Panera Bread 

Breach announced: April 6, 2018 

Breach details: More than 7 million Panera Bread customers are estimated to have had their ordering data swiped. Any customers who ordered online, or who used MyPanera in the 8 months leading up to the breach potentially had their names, email addresses, physical addresses, birthdates, and even their ordering habits, as well as the last four digits of their payment card exposed to potential fraud. 

 

Google+ 

Breach announced: March 1, 2018 & November 7, 2018 

Breach details: In March Google announced it would be discontinuing Google+ after a Wall Street Journal article made the public aware of a software glitch within the platform that had exposed the personal profile data of more than 500,000 Google+ users. It happened again in November when Google was bombarded by a second data breach that exposed the information of 52.5 million users. Google has since announced intentions to shut down Google+ permanently by April of 2019, thus ending Google’s attempt to create a social media platform. 

 

Saks Fifth Avenue 

Breach announced: April 1, 2018 

Breach details: Posh retail giants Lord & Taylor, Saks Fifth Avenue, and Saks OFF 5th fell victim to a sizeable data breach of their customer base on Easter. No less than 5 million customer credit and debit card numbers are thought to have been compromised. An audit of the breach estimates that every single North American location was put at risk. 

 

MyFitnessPal 

Breach announced: March 30, 2018 

Breach details: In the spring the popular fitness app, MyFitnessPal, found out that 150 million user accounts were breached. Among the personal information put at risk was data about users’ step counts, diets, along with usernames, email addresses, and passwords. The company was hopeful that payment information was spared by hackers but were never able to verify it.  

 

Orbitz 

Breach announced: March 30, 2018 

Breach details: The digital travel booking site Orbitz learned that hackers had accessed more than 880,000 credit and debit cards used by customers on their website. In addition to the payment card information, personal information such as birth dates, phone numbers, and email and billing addresses were all left exposed by the data breach.  

 

Aadar 

Breach announced: March 7, 2018 

Breach details: More than 1.1 billion Indians saw their private information compromised, including their 12-digit ID numbers (the Indian equivalent of a Social Security number), and sensitive information such as bank account numbers and passwords. India’s government ID database, which is used to store a host of specific personal information about citizens, was left exposed by a state-owned utility company called Indane.  The fellow arm of government had failed to properly secure their software used to access the database, and inadvertently gave anyone access to Aadhar information that was trying to get a hold of it. 

 

Preventing future breaches 

We understand why some companies store user data to help improve customer service, but they better wise up when it comes to how they choose to do it, because no one signs up to have their private information given away to hackers on a silver platter. Taking proper steps to protect customers from cyber-criminals should be a top priority for 21st century companies. By mandating the encryption of all data transmissions, companies can help safeguard any data while it is in transit, which in concert with encrypted company email, and employing a VPN for any Wi-Fi networks can only help make things harder for hackers.  

Whether it’s severely modifying the way they store user data and further restricting internal access to it or making sure they dump data after a certain timeframe, companies should feel absolutely obligated to make sure the sour record of data breaches in 2018 is never ever repeated again. And consumers should feel free to make sure businesses are paying attention, because if there’s one thing that will get a corporation’s attention more than a data breach it’s a data breach that costs them customers.
