A few years ago, on Penn Ave, just after you crossed Negly as you drive toward town there used to be this awesome Atari sign painted on the side of the building. It was by far a favorite of mine and one day it was gone before I could get a picture.
Thankfully there are some great people in the area that love signs more that I do and they have been collecting pictures of Pittsburgh signs for a few years now. The Pittsburgh Signs Project just might be one of the coolest websites in town. I think it is a great intersection of art, photography, history and technology all rolled into one interesting website.
To celebrate Pittsburgh's 250th Birthday the Pittsburgh Signs Project is publishing a book of these pictures and they are looking for your pictures too. They are looking for pictures of signs from the 14 counties that make up Western, PA and everyone is invited to submit 5 of their photographs. More Info at www.PittsburghSigns.org
CALL FOR PHOTOGRAPHERS!
The Pittsburgh Signs Project invites photographers of all levels from the 14 counties of southwestern Pennsylvania to submit up to five images for possible inclusion in Pittsburgh Signs: 250, a full-color book showcasing images of signs, past and present. Counties represented may be: Allegheny, Armstrong, Beaver, Bedford, Butler, Cambria, Fayette, Greene, Indiana, Lawrence, Mercer, Somerset, Washington, Westmoreland. (more…)
If you imagine a sort of hourglass, at the top there are the millions of farmers who grow the food that we eat, and at the bottom there are billions of us consumers, and in the middle there are just a handful of corporations that mediate between the people who grow our food and us. And those corporations, in many cases-it's usually four corporations controlling more than 50 percent of the market. I mean, in tea, for example, one company, Unilever, controls 90 percent of the market.
A Senate hearing on Capitol Hill Monday highlighted the slave-like working conditions of workers in U.S. tomato fields and the need for the Bush administration to step in and ensure that tomato pickers and other migrant workers do not endure 21st century slavery.

"When more than one million students a year drop out of high school, it's more than a problem, it's a catastrophe," retired General Colin Powell, founder of America's Promise Alliance. Nearly half of all Black and Native American students are expected not to graduate with their classes, while less than six in 10 Hispanic students will.
Times are tough for high school seniors who are waiting to hear from their first-choice colleges. Schools report record numbers of applicants and rejections. At Newton South High School in suburban Boston, rejected seniors are sharing their misery by posting their rejection letters on a "Wall of Shame."

Employment picture negative
Pittsburgh’s not seasonlly adjusted unemployment rate increased to 5.7 percent in February, according to the latest figures. Only Detroit, St. Louis and Cleveland recorded higher February rates. The increase was the product of a slight increase in the size of the labor force, up 2,226, and an increase of 10,928 in the number of unemployed versus February 2007. Annual numbers for 2007 are not yet available...MORE

U.S. citizens are twice as likely to land in New Jersey's prisons as legal and illegal immigrants, according to new data that counter some of the most widely perceived notions about the link between immigration and crime.
"When you look at incarceration rates (New Jersey), you find immigrants much less likely than the native born to be incarcerated," Piehl added. "Once you control for the fact that immigrants are generally younger and less educated, then the data you find is even more surprising."
Advocates of tougher enforcement say the numbers do nothing to lessen the need to crack down on immigrants who commit crimes, including using local police to do it. MORE
