We hear planes overhead now all the time, and we never did before. We hear helicopters a lot more too.

This is excellent! I'll bet these Deaf students learned more about the history and meaning of this song than the average school child does. I know I learned more than I ever knew, and I even spent time learning more about it so I could interpret it. Now I know how I can interpret it much better, thanks to this school project. Thank you!

I love the way you sign, and I understand it perfectly. One thing I don't think is discussed, though, is how much English is on the mouths of even the most fluent Deaf and hearing ASL signers. I am tempted to make an audio track of myself voicing your mouthing— not to mock you at all, but to show the fascinating interchange between ASL and English mouthing that you (and even the Deafest of Deaf ASL signers I've seen) alternate between at lightening speed.

Great to see you here, Daniel! I like your idea, GO FOR IT!  I wouldn't view it as any type of mockery at all - I think it could yield fascinating information. I agree with what you're saying and firmly believe that there is a great disparity between the rhetoric (what we say we do) and the reality (what we actually do). Classic case in point: "Store I go."  We'd be hard-pressed to find anyone who's ever signed that actual sentence, yet it's routinely used as an example of natural ASL grammatical structure.  Paradox much?

That having been said, I still contend that ASL On = Voice Off, especially if we're looking to, not get away from English necessarily, but to communicate in ASL more clearly. "ASL On = Voice Off" is not based on the notion that English and ASL are mutually exclusive; rather, it's based on the notion that, as hearing people, we need to remove the "noise" from our visual/spatial (ASL) communication in order to clear it up. (pun intended)

I should mention a key ingredient was a little bit of fish sauce. I also used white pepper and a little bit of soy sauce.

I REALLY appreciate your candor in describing your personal introspection, and have to admit I have had the same thoughts and feelings. I like the idea of Deaf interpreters (DI's) being the public face of ASL, and have seen it work sometimes. In the case of the DI who did the mayor's announcement about the hurricane, I thought it worked great, and was a bemused by some people's (including Deaf people's) reactions to the "faciness" of the DI (if I may coin a word). Some people were not ready for a DI's very "ASL" face. For people to think he was a fake interpreter, well, that's just preposterous. It shows how little hearing people know about ASL. On the other hand, there is the question of register, and what kinds of facial expression are appropriate in a formal register, regardless of whether the interpreter is hearing or Deaf. Maybe—just maybe—that DI's face in that moment, in that setting, was a bit too informal? Just saying it's a possibility. Anyway, HI and DI teams, with the DI "on stage" or "in front" is still a relatively new practice, and it may take some time to work out the kinks.

I would like to mention that I thought having the DI interpret on stage for HI's who were standing right next to them signing ASL—including Betty Colonomos, who as she said herself is a native signer—at RID 2014 was ridiculous and inflexible. It is face-threatening to have someone signing right next to you, as if you can't sign ASL yourself. But, again, as I type the word "threatening," I wonder if there is room for growth. Hm…

I’m thankful for the people I work with and for, and the pleasure of the work itself, for they make me forget the stresses of my busy week. It’s lovely how it all just goes away when I’m in the moment.

Beautiful breakfast menu. Interesting dishes at low prices. I got the Huevos Divorciados and they were willing to beat the eggs, substitute ranchera with garlic cream, and melt the butter for my hot corn tortillas. All for $5.45 tax included!

I've been a Costco customer for 20 years, and I've seen employees stay here that long. They take good care of their people and they have high quality products at prices that make good sense.

I've been twice; the first time I got bento and the second time I got beef bulkoki. Both were beautiful & delicious. The place is worn, but it's clean. There were Asian patrons both times — always a good sign for an Asian restaurant — and I would recommend it to a friend.
