Pittsburgh Regional FIRST Robotics Competition
Thursday, March 14: Practice Day Friday - Saturday, March 15 - 16: Competition Full schedule: http://www.pittsburghfirst.org/programs/frc The Pittsburgh Regional FIRST Robotics Competition is an annual showdown between competing high school teams from Western Pennsylvania, Ohio, West Virginia, Maryland, New York, Virginia, North Carolina, South Carolina, and Canada. FIRST combines the excitement of sports with science and technology to create a unique varsity Sport for the Mind™. Under strict rules, limited resources, and time limits, teams of students are challenged to design, build, test, brand, and find local funding to compete in a different game every year. This three day event is free and open to the public.
Over the years the traditional thanksgiving feast has featured turkey as the primary entree. The price for putting Thanksgiving dinner on the table for 10 people is expected to rise slightly this year, clocking in at $49.41. That's 37 cents higher than in 2013. The good news is that a drop in fuel prices make it cheaper to drive to Grandma's house, but If you're traveling by train or air, you'll pay 2-percent more over last year.
