2016[48]A -- Ins-Net As Nov 25, 2016: Pittsburgh, PA [C-C-A]

Insomniac-Net Answers -- Friday[48], Nov 25, 2016 [ C - C - A ]
Tonight's Topic: Pittsburgh, PA
ANSWERS = [ C - C - A ]
HAPPY TURKEY DAY!
Good morning/evening, everybody! Thank you for joining us last night.
    We hope you discovered something interesting during the time we spent together on the Insomniac Net last night.
        -- The ever-delightful Shelley [KF7TBA] and just plain old LW [K7LWA] (email K7LWA.INS@gmail.com).
    (Please Note: The Net Controller's Answers are always CORRECT (even if they aren't every time!)
    Please check out Winsystem's Insomniac Trivia Net page.
    You can get these Questions & Answers at the Yahoo-groups' Messages Link.
=================
    2016 commemorates the western Pennsylvania city of Pittsburgh's 200th Anniversary of being incorporated as a city.
    Named for the Earl of Chatham, William Pitt (the British Secretary of State), during the French and Indian Wars in the 1750s, Pittsburgh has been home to many.
    These include native Indian tribes, the French, English, German, other European, Asians, et. al., and even George Washington in 1753.
    Today, Pittsburgh is transforming from the heavy industries (like steel and glass making) into being a world class center of education, medicine, and technology.
    Accordingly, we submit for your approval, 3 questions about Pittsburgh, PA.
    Please choose your answers from any of the 3 (reuseable) answers of "A", "B", or "C" (if applicable!) for each of the following question 
    OK, are yinz ready fer tonight's questions -- they are easy -- trust me....
++ Pittsburgh, PA ++
QUESTION #1: Some Pittsburgh streets have changed a lot over the centuries from dirt roads, to streets paved with coblestones, then Belgian blocks, and finally bricks. Why pave with bricks?
    A. They are proudly provided (i.e., paid and donated) by hometown Pittsbughers' baseball, football, hockey, etc. sports teams and fans, or
    B. They are a local, easily recycled steel-making by-product found in hundreds of surrounding "coke-slag" mounds and pits, or
    C. They are easier to lay and pull up when changing infrastructure works.
    YOU CAN HEAR US RATTLING BECAUSE WE ARE GOING OVER THE BRICK STREETS.
    +++
    PITTSBURGH STREETS HAVE CHANGED OVER TIME FROM ORIGINAL DIRT STREETS.  THEY THEN WENT TO COBLESTONESS AND BELGIAN BLOCKS.
    AND PROBABLY ONLY 30 OR 40 YEARS AGO THEY WENT TO BRICKS BECAUSE THEY WERE EASIER TO LAY AND PULL UP WHEN THEY HAD TO DO INFRASTRUCTURE WORK.
QUESTION #2: Local Pittsburghers have there own dialect called "Pittsburghese". Also, surprisingly, some of the locals may have problems driving around Pittsburgh. Why?
    A. Many of the streets are paved with bricks, or
    B. Most locals can't read street signs, but rely on using landmarks -- like City Hall, Three River Stadium, or the Alcoa, the US Steel, and the PPG buildings), or
    C. Many of the streets are aligned with rivers and there are a lot of hills, gulleys, and nearly 450 bridges.
    WE ARE COMING UP TO THE RIVER.
    YOU ARE STARTING TO SEE SOME OF THE BRIDGES IN PITTSBURGH.
    THERE ARE MORE THAN 450 BRIDGES ALL OVER THE CITY.
    THAT INCLUDES SOME FOOTBRIDGES AND SOME AUTOMOBILE BRIDGES AND RAILROAD BRIDGES.
    WE HAVE BRIDGES OF ALL KINDS.
    IT IS NOT EASY NAVIGATING PITTSBURGH'S STREETS.
    THEY ARE ALIGNED WITH RIVERS AND THERE ARE LOTS OF HILLS AND GALLEYS AND BRIDGES.
    EVEN THE LOCALS HAVE SOME TROUBLE GETTING AROUND DOWNTOWN, BUT ONCE YOU FIGURE IT OUT IT IS NOT SO BAD.
QUESTION #3: Today, Pittsburgh's biggest employer is the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center, which employes more than 50,000 people. True or False?
    A. True, or
    B. False
    TODAY PITTSBURGH IS REINVENTING ITSELF YET AGAIN, FROM BEING THE SMOKY CITY OF HEAVY INDUSTRY.
    IT'S NOW EDS AND MEDS -- EDUCATION AND MEDICINE.
   THE BIGGEST EMPLOYER IS THE UNIVERSITY OF PITTSBURGH MEDICAL CENTER THAT EMPLOYS MORE THAN 50,000 PEOPLE.
    (TODAY) IT'S EDUCATION, SMART TECHNOLOGIES; UBER IS HERE; GOOGLE IS HERE; (ALSO) ROBOTICS CENTERS.
    PEOPLE COME ALL OVER THE GLOBE TO BE EDUCATED AT CARNEGIE MELLON UNIVERSITY OR THE UNIVERSITY OF PITTSBURGH.
    THERE ARE MORE THAN 30 UNIVERSITIES OR COLLEGES IN THE GREATER PITTSBURGH AREA.
    THERE IS LOTS TO SEE IN PITTSBURGH.
    IT WOULD TAKE YOU A WEEK TO SEE IT ALL.
    WHAT I SAY TO AMERICA IS: "STOP ON BY, GIVE PITTSBURGH A CHANCE -- IT IS NOT THE CITY, YOU MIGHT THINK IT IS.
=================
++ DA PITTSBURGH TRANSLATION OF THE DAY ++
   "Fer alls of yinz who have ever been to dahntahn picksburg, yinz probably seen some of da streets paved wit bricks."
