Lydia Callis: During Superstorm Sandy, All Eyes on Bloomberg's Super Interpreter

By Lylah M. Alphonse
Lydia Callis interprets for New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg during a press conference on Oct. 28. (Photo: Andrew …During Superstorm Sandy, while New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg addressed anxious citizens about storm damage and safety issues, all eyes were on the petite, impeccably dressed woman to his right—Lydia Callis, his official sign language interpreter.

While the mayor spoke in his trademark businesslike monotone and stiff, stilted Spanish, Callis brought his words to life, adding expression and emotion as her fingers and hands flew to translate each briefing into American Sign Language.

Watching her gave New Yorkers "a legitimate reason to smile," New York magazine enthused. Her animated interpretations have made her so popular that the mayor began his Tuesday afternoon press conference by thanking her, and she's inspired a Tumblr full of .gifs and a legion of online fans.

Pope Benedict adds Arabic to weekly Vatican address

The head of the Roman Catholic Church, Pope Benedict XVI, has for the first time spoken in Arabic during his weekly address to pilgrims to the Vatican.

"The Pope prays for all the Arabic-speaking people. May God bless you all," The Pope said.
The introduction of a sixth language is to express support for Christians in the Middle East, officials said.
The Vatican said Arabic was also introduced to remind all faiths to pray for peace in the region.
At the weekly papal audience which draws pilgrims from many countries, a priest read a summary of the Pope's address in Arabic for the first time, joining other briefs in French, English, German, Spanish, Portuguese, Slovak, Czech, Polish, Hungarian and Russian.
