Sign Language Interpretation: The Facial Expressions Have It

Posted in People and Society by admin | Tags: , , , ,

Thamsanqa Jantjie considers himself a “champion of sign language”. That depends on your definition of champion. If you consider a champion to be someone who brings attention (positive or negative) to an issue then sure, he’s a champion. But if you think that a champion has to do good for a cause or is a winner in some way, then Jantjie’s self-proclaimed title is in doubt. You see, Jantjie is the sign language interpreter who caused a righteous furore at global peace icon Nelson Mandela’s memorial service.

The attention he garnered may all have been negative (putting South African security protocols in a bad light), but he did underline the importance of qualified and talented sign language interpreters at major events.

There’s more to sign language interpretation than meets the eye

Spoken languages depend on subtle vocal inflections and nuances; meaning varies according to the emphasis placed on certain words and even certain parts of words. It stands to reason that sign language is just as affected by subtle changes in gestures and facial expressions. This means that it takes more than technical knowledge to be a sign language interpreter; it also takes bodily and facial animation and, more importantly, control.

This was perfectly highlighted by Lydia Callis in November 2012, when she interpreted New York City Mayor Bloomberg’s many public addresses as the state prepared for Hurricane Sandy – and then tried to cope with the storm’s devastating effects. Callis went viral on social media networks as people were captivated by the energy and animation with which she imbued her sign language. According to The Atlantic’s Arika Okrent, she was dubbed Hurricane Sandy’s breakout star – the tastefulness of which may or may not be questioned.

Okrent makes a point of saying that Callis’ animation shouldn’t be considered outstandingly amazing because all sign language speakers – the eloquent ones – use big gestures and facial expressions when they talk. The simple fact is that sign language is visual, so it has to be vibrant. The movements and expressions, according to Okrent, are essential components of sign language grammar. Meaning is lost without them.

Becoming a sign language interpreter

According to Jamie Berke, sign language interpreters are increasingly in demand. As demand grows, so does the demand for regulation – as the dust settles on the Jantjie debacle, you can see why. In the United States, for example, professional interpreters need a bachelor degree (associate degree at the least) and it’s strongly recommended that they be properly certified. The National Association of the Deaf and the Registry of Interpreters for the Deaf provide three levels of national certification: National Interpreter Certification (NIC), NIC Advanced and NIC Master.

In addition to the technical skills, professional sign language interpreters need certain personality traits and social skills. According to Deaf Expressions, this includes awareness of and sensitivity to different cultures (this is very important in increasingly multi-cultural communities and global business environments).

The ability to dissect social situations is also essential. For example, interpreters may be called upon to interpret conversations in large groups where more than one person is speaking at the same time. So, the ability to weed out unnecessary chatter and focus on what’s important is critical. It’s also important that interpreters are aware of the jargon, slang and intricacies of the job, culture or language of the job. For example, they need to be able to convey puns or complicated technical explanations. As Deaf Expressions points out, there are often no accepted signs for highly specialised terms or jargon, so interpreters have to spell them out. This takes time and patience, not to mention smarts and dedication.

Finally, as with all translation and interpretation, sign language interpreters need to abide by a code of ethics. Confidentiality and impartiality are essential, as is honesty. So, if interpreters find that they are struggling in a certain situation, they need to tell their clients, otherwise they risk serious miscommunication and possibly even offense.

Jemima Winslow has a face that gives away her thoughts before she can put them in words. Unfortunately she has no control over it, and this, combined with an inability to remain impartial, mean that she is wholly unsuited to any interpretation job, let alone sign language interpretation.

Why Should Your Company Consider Working in the Cloud?

Posted in Technology by Teresa Stewart | Tags:

cloud speaker Why Should Your Company Consider Working in the Cloud?

Anyone in the business world or who runs their own company knows that success is often contingent upon keeping up with the latest advancements in technology. The current technological advancement that companies throughout the world are now turning to is cloud computing. Just about any company that is worried about its security, has data storage needs that aren’t set in stone, is trying to save money on IT costs or simply doesn’t want to spend multitudes of money on software can benefit from use of the cloud. The industries that these companies encompass are nearly unlimited, so every business owner should understand exactly what the cloud can do for their company. 

Save Money on Infrastructure

One of the biggest perks of cloud technology is the fact that it saves money on infrastructure. When a company starts growing, they often have to purchase larger physical servers in order to handle more data. Sadly, if they end up not needing this much storage, they’re usually just out of luck. With cloud computing, however, a company can increase or decrease the amount of storage it needs at any given time. Whether an individual is running an IT firm or a small business in the local mall, this savings can go a long way.

Go Global

One of the things that made cloud computing so popular is its global nature. A person can literally save a file at the office, pull it up on their iPad during the commute home and then continue working on it on their home’s personal computer. What’s really great, however, is that an employee on the other side of the world can also access files and data when cloud service is utilized. This means even a small business can quite literally “go global.”

Quick Disaster Recovery

Disaster recovery is an essential cost when a company is handling customer or corporate data, but with cloud computing, this cost often comes along with whatever service a business uses. Some research has actually found that companies using the cloud are able to accomplish disaster recovery almost four times faster than their competitors who don’t utilize the technology. In the dog-eat-dog business world, this time literally translates to money.

Savings on Software

The savings that cloud technology provides on software usage is by itself worth the cost. Instead of purchasing several licenses for software suites, a company can simply use the same programs that are provided by the cloud company. This is a much lower cost solution than actually purchasing the software, and if a business owner decides that a particular program isn’t right for them, they can simply stop using and paying for it.

Additional Security

Cloud providers have their own set of security measures, but using this technology also removes the necessity for an employee to travel around with confidential data on their laptop. Around 800,000 laptops turn up missing every year while their owners are in airports, and if these laptop users had their data in the cloud rather than on their hard drive, everything they worked so hard for would remain secure.

The cloud is undoubtedly a piece of technology that no business can do without. Just as was the case with having a website, many companies didn’t realize the importance of cloud computing when it first came out. With over half of all American businesses now using the cloud, however, a business that fails to invest in this technology will likely allow its competitors to leave it in the dust.

Valerie Stout Cyrus is a freelance writer who has several years of experience producing technical publications. She has found that using the cloud service is a very efficient method of publishing as there are no issues with version control and her documents are easily accessible to all relevant parties.

AOE CHILD CARE 6 Tips to Finding Quality Care for your Child

6 Tips to Finding Quality Care for your Child

As much as parents may want to stay home to take care of their children, their financial and lifestyle circumstances may not allow them this luxury. When they want to escape worrying about their children’s safety and happiness throughout the workday, people may look for the ideal daycare that will provide their children with quality childcare and a safe environment in which to play and learn.

However, parents who are new to the daycare industry may be unaware of what qualities to look for in a childcare facility. By taking these tips into consideration, you can find the best providers in which to place your trust and the care of your children.

1. Get Referrals from Trusted Sources

If you do not know other parents who are currently utilizing daycare services for their kids, you can still get reliable referrals by contacting county or state agencies in charge of overseeing these facilities. Many states keep a list of reviews and referrals on file at the local family services department. You can go to this agency or call its staff to ask for updated referrals and reviews of local day cares.

2. Ensure They are Licensed and Inspected

Along with getting updated reviews, parents may be advised to consider only the facilities that are licensed and inspected by the state. Private in-home daycare providers may charge cheaper rates; however, they also can have little supervision when it comes to the safety and wellness of the kids enrolled in their care. If you want the assurance that the facility is safe and inspected regularly, you should only consider those that hold state licenses.

3. Check Out Accident Reports

States also keep records of a facility’s safety record. Before you enroll your child at a daycare, you should check out the number of accidents that have occurred on the premises. If the number seems high or the circumstances seem suspicious, you can take this as a sign that your own child may be at risk.

It is also important to understand that when your child is injured when in the care of others due to negligence that you have the option to hire a personal injury attorney to take on a case to help retrieve medical and legal expenses. One personal injury lawyer Raleigh based states they are “dedicated to helping accident victims obtain compensation for injuries suffered due to someone else’s negligence.” Finding one with this kind of commitment would be beneficial and ideal for any injury case.

4. Check Out the Facility Firsthand

Reviews and licenses can only provide a certain amount of assurance. These qualifications cannot take the place of seeing a facility firsthand and checking it out in person. When you visit a daycare, you can get a sense of how safe it is and how well kept it is. You can examine important areas like the bathroom, the kitchen, and the playground where your child will be playing throughout the day. Seeing the place up close and personal will help your instincts tell you if it is safe or if you should avoid this childcare location.

5. Gauge the Reactions of Enrolled Children

When you are visiting the place, you can also see firsthand how happy the children are. If babies are crying, kids are anxious, or the toddlers look dirty and uncared for, you can take this as a sign that your own child may suffer the same lack of care. The children on the premises can give you a big indicator of how competent the caretakers are.

6. Consider the Caretaker-Child Ratio

Most states require that day cares keep the ratio of children and caretakers at or below a certain ratio. You can determine how well a facility cares of its charges by counting the number of caretakers per kids enrolled.

6. Check Out Accident Reports

States also keep records of a facility’s safety record. Before you enroll your child at a daycare, you should check out the number of accidents that have occurred on the premises. If the number seems high or the circumstances seem suspicious, you can take this as a sign that your own child may be at risk and that you may have to hire an accident attorney to take on this facility in court to retrieve medical and legal expenses.

Enrolling your children in daycare can be step that you must take for the financial stability of your family. You can choose a good childcare location by keeping these tips in mind.

Lisa Coleman shares some tips on how to help a person find a reliable and safe childcare center for their little ones. She recently read about how a personal injury lawyer Raleigh NC law firm could help represent and file suit for a client who has been a victim of childcare negligence.

Safe Planning for a Night on the Town

Posted in People and Society by jainniesmith | Tags:

If you are planning a night on the town with friends it is important to take every precaution that you end the night safely. Here are some ideas from the lads down at Carmax to keep your group safe without interfering with having a good time. Carmax Finance is a leading car dealership that arranges poor credit car finance to those in need!

Take Turns

If you are having parties often with a group of friends consider having a draw for designated drivers. You can come up with a simple way of making sure there is always a few people designated to drive and they are the ones who do not drink. You can rotate, pull names from a hat or leave it up to couples to decide who will be drinking and who will be driving. Another idea in groups is to say that whoever drives gets free food and non-alcoholic drinks all night on the rest of the group.

Hire a Limo

When you are planning for a major event such as a pre-wedding party, a major birthday or a big promotion consider hiring a limo. Travelling about town in a limo is an excellent way to keep the party going as you can actually hire cars with a bar service. As well once split amongst a group of friends the cost is not that much different than each of you taking a cab. You can arrange for a single pick up at a central location but then have the limo drop each of you ate home safe and sound at the end of the night.

Have a Buddy System

If you are a drinker you don’t need to be reminded how easy it is for things to go awry. Consider having a buddy system so no one gets left behind. In busy clubs, pubs and bars it is easy to get pushed and shoved which can lead to separation. As well someone who is a little tipsy might wander off to find a drink, use the loo or worse because they meet someone looking for a little “romance”. Have a no one gets left behind policy and make sure everyone is within easy reach. You are all adults and can make decisions to join a new “party”, but having each others’ backs will help keep you all safe.

Stay at a Hotel

Consider everyone staying at a central hotel that is easy to get to at the end of the night. This works well as you can continue the party at the hotel as things are winding down and those who have had enough can opt to sleep it off when they are ready. It is a way to make sure everyone gets home safely as well.

Set a Budget

Set a budget for yourself for the evening. It is a good way to keep tabs on how much you are drinking. Taking out only enough money for an allotted amount of drinks and leaving your bank and credit cards at home will save you not only money but also keep you from over indulging as well.

Conversion of Units – Centimetre to Feet

Posted in Technology by lucycollins | Tags: , ,

Conversion of Units is possible between different units of measurements of same quantity. There are two typed of conversions Soft conversion and hard conversion or adaptive conversion. For the conversion to be precise that is the resultant value should be exactly equal to the first measurement taken into account. The physical configuration of the substance need not be changed. This type of conversion is called soft conversion. A hard conversion involves changing the numbers and units. The physical configuration will be slightly changed. This kind of conversion is called hard conversion.

Area Converter1 210x300 Conversion of Units – Centimetre to Feet
