yes, but I strongly recommend you read: http://www.amazon.com/The-First-National-Bank-Dad/dp/0743204808 first.

There's an essential thing to keep in mind: interest rates are too low and time horizons too long to actually make it possible for young people to "Get" saving at an early age. The solution to this is obvious, affordable and fun for everyone: just open your own "bank" and then pay your kids ridiculously unsustainable interest on every dollar they save (up to a limit). 1% per month. hell, 1% per week.

it teaches them math, you can afford it on small amounts of money and it gives them the opportunity to learn something about compounding at a rate they can relate to.

strongly recommended.

Get yourself Julia Sahni's Classic Indian Cooking book. It's a great place to start. If you're primarily into veg, another place to go would be Devi's Lord Krishna's Cuisine which is a positively massive cookbook that is great and vedic (no onions, etc. only hing).

Also, Manjula's Kitchen has some good videos.

I don't even know where to begin....except here

You really need to learn how to use HTML/CSS. Its extremely easy to build a great looking very simple site like yours with some basic skills.

Learn how to reduce the size of your images. Images should be as tiny as possible. (In file size, not in resolution or quality)

You have no navigation other than using browser forward/back buttons. Good navigation is a key to a decent site.

Yellow background? absolutely not.

The above should give you a start, but I would honestly get a good book and start the site over from scratch.

Does anyone have an Alexa, use the Pittsburgh Bus regularly, and willing to try a new skill I made? I was hoping to get some feedback on my first attempt at it, ease of use and feature's that would be useful.

Also take a look at the policies that excluded people of color from social security. The GI bill provided for returning soldiers’ education but the only colleges that accepted minorities were for things like farming. So while white guys came back and became engineers, people of color were still only able to access lower income jobs. Then there’s redlining which prevented black families from becoming homeowners. Homeownership is the main way people gain wealth. So the simple answer to your question is structural racism.

I’m reading this book right now (https://www.amazon.com/White-Fragility-People-About-Racism/dp/0807047414) which I highly recommend.

I have a not-so-secret love affair with Pittsburgh. I grew up in Portland, OR. I now live in upstate NY for grad school. But I swear, I'm going to "start my life" in Pittsburgh. I can come up with all sorts of rationalizations for it, like housing costs, job opportunities, and long-term environmental stability... but the truth is that I feel an insane connection to the city. I've read everything I can find on this history of the city (holy fuck, btw), and spent countless hours looking at every square inch on Google Earth (to the point where I'm worried I might be "on the spectrum"). I have only visited once, mainly to see CMU, but I plan on coming back in this spring to check out some neighborhoods. Maybe I can meet up with some of yinz when I get the chance to come out.

I agree with OP, there's something about the "bones" of the city that makes it insanely charming. Some combination of the hills and all the industrial vestiges make it an urbanist's wet dream.

Logic/match shouldn't really be an issue. To me, the main parts of JS are interacting with the page/DOM and keeping your code clean and organized. A couple of resources to look into:

  • JavaScript: The Good Parts for general JS good practices.
  • jQuery to handle simplifying many JS tasks and abstracting away some browser incompatibilities.

    I don't know where I'd start with teaching someone to code but if you had code that needed reviewing, I could probably help with that.

There are a lot of books like this available for specific neighborhoods in and around Pittsburgh that contain lots of old pictures for inspiration

I can't help with a doctor but I highly recommend this book before she commits to surgery. It's only $8 on Amazon.

"Cut Me Loose".. It's an autobiography written by a girl from squirrel hill.. Technically a lot of it takes part in NYC, but starts in Pittsburgh. I haven't read it yet, but it's been getting a lot of praise lately, and she was featured on with Katie Couric.

The New Geography of Jobs https://www.amazon.com/dp/0544028058/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_YkGSzbYRKY47V

The service industry, which includes doctors, lawyers, restaurants and their staff, plumbers, carpenters, nurses, electricians, DPW workers, etc. also benefit.

It's not too complicated, you could also just pick up a book like this one.

I knew people in this history book. For instance, the nuns in the boat (which cracks everyone up) were teachers at St. Joe’s. Then later on, there’s a blurb about Fr. Kress. His noon mass on Sundays were the highest populated masses in town, because you could count on being out of there by 12:20. He usually zoomed thru it all so he could get back to the rectory and watch Bowling For Dollars. 🙄
