The Steps of Pittsburgh ... "he city of Pittsburgh in Pennsylvania, the United States, is located over an unruly terrain of hills, hollows, valleys and three intersecting rivers. Back in the late 19th and early 20th century, when Pittsburgh was growing as a coal and steel town, factory workers built houses in the hills rising above the flat riverbanks that were lined with factories. In order to commute to work, city officials and residents built staircases along the mountainside, originally of wood and later with concrete that ran up and down and all over creating a chaotic place that is notoriously difficult to navigate.

Revered American journalist Ernie Pyle famously wrote about the city in 1937:

Pittsburgh is undoubtedly the cockeyedest city in the United States. Physically, it is absolutely irrational. It must have been laid out by a mountain goat... I've flown over it, and driven all around it, and studied maps of it, and I hardly know one end of Pittsburgh from the other... There's just one balm -- people who live here can't find their way around, either.

Many of the city's neighborhoods are steeply sloped with two-lane roads. “Some streets are narrow, some wide. None runs more than a few blocks in a straight line,” wrote Ernie Pyle.

It's up and down, and around and around, and in betwixt… You may have a friend who lives half a mile away. But to get there you circle three miles around a mountain ridge, cross two bridges, go through a tunnel, follow a valley, skirt the edge of a cliff, and wind up at your friend's back door an hour after dark.

Certain sections of the city are so steep and narrow that these neighborhoods are serviced by special fire trucks that are small and have tighter turning radius, when they get called in case of emergency. Many of the streets that appear on maps are, in fact, not streets at all but long staircases that often surprise unsuspecting visitors. Just like real streets, they have names, signs and even house numbers.

Ray DeMichiei, Pittsburgh's deputy director of emergency management, said he often had to find detours when he worked on a city ambulance in 1975. “There were numerous times when I was navigating and the driver's driving that we screeched at a set of city steps,” he said.

According to retired geophysicist Bob Regan, who has spent years cataloguing every stairway in Pittsburgh, there are a total of 712 public stairways and 44,645 steps in the city, accounting for 24,108 feet of vertical height and 23 miles in distance. 

Most of the stairways were built in the 1940s and 1950s, and not all of them are in a pretty state. The city allocates just $200,000 each year for step maintenance but repairing just one set of steps can cost $100,000. ..."

Man VS Nature│Art by Agim Sulaj

 AGIM SULAJ is a well known Albanian painter. He was born in the capital, Tirana, on 6th September 1960, but spent his childhood and adolescence in the costal city of Vlora. Since a very young age Agim experiences his passion and love for paintings and art in general and the talent is evident very early on.

 The paths and narrow streets of the costal and historic city provide the first artistic inspiration for the artist. In 1985, he completes his studies at the Academy of Arts in Tirana and starts collaborating with "Hosteni', a political and satirical magazine. This exposes the young artist to the world of humour and satires, an important element for the formation of his own artistic work. Simultaneously, he develops a hyperrealistic style that is more dominant in the later works. In his landscapes, the painter expresses his nostalgia for the beauty of the nature as captured during his childhood, whilst his cartoons depict major social and political problems of the XXI century, such as world poverty, environmental pollution, the life of an immigrant and other social topics.

 For the first time in 1993, Agim presented his works carried out during the communist period, in a personal exhibition "Rally di Rimini "in Italy where his portfolio was warmly welcomed. Since that time, he has settled in the city of Rimini, together with his wife and two children, where he continues to paint both hyperrealist style paintings and satirical drawings, cartoons that have been internationally acknowledged. Agim Sulaj is the winner of many international prizes. His work has won prestigious awards around the globe, such as in China, Russia, Belgium, France, Spain, Portugal, Greqi, America, Poland, Turkey, Germany, Sweden, Iran. He has exhibited in famous galleries alongside well known artists, such as De Chirico, Balthus, Nerdrum, Sandorfi, David Hockney and many others , His work has been called "a fine, surreal satirical illustration, metaphor for the state of the environment and the failure to protect it".

∴ Putting your big idea into motion™
Introduction
How are you today? Feeling good?  Feeling down?
Excellent! You came to the right place.  Living in this very moment.

TUTUM TE ROBORE REDDAM

Cycles are natural. If your situation is not what you had hoped, it's bound to improve. If it's currently great, than you will want faithful friends around when it becomes less than you hoped. Maybe you will decide that the situation doesn't matter, that you can be happy no matter what. That is the better way in my opinion. This idea may be hard to swallow at times, but it has been my experience, for whatever that is worth to you.  

My mission in life: Help others create and adapt to change for the better カイゼン
I am passionate about helping everyone leverage the dynamic nature of their world to grow in every aspect. My reward is to see them make an impact that energizes them and the lives of others.

Lifecycles ... change in action.

Your agent for constructive change カイゼン

One person and one company at a time, I have helped transform culture and technology to build and improve the lives of the people who buy their services and products. 

I bootstrapped three companies. 
- I developed one of the first applications on Apple II for the Koala Pad. The Koala was the first iPad! The market just wasn't ready it, or for me.

- My second firm was named as Oracle Corporation's #1 Reseller and Consulting partner in North America. In exchange for for fair compensation, I handed the reins of this company over to a leading national system integrator and set out for my next venture.

- My team and I created a new drug discovery platform for leading firms including Eli Lilly, Novartis and Takeda. This technology replaced legacy PC applications when PCs were the cat's meow.

Beginning innovation at home, I have repeatedly reinvented the way I make an impact on this world. Here are a few examples: 

I did my part to keep America safe for democracy as a Captain in the US Air Force, young consultant on the Strategic Defense Initiative program and lifelong supporter of the freedom we hold dear and fight daily to keep alive. 

As digital become personal, I evangelized the value of an internet enabled customer experience, consulted leaders, conducted numerous process improvement programs as a Lean Six Sigma Black Belt, served on boards to help others in need, read more books than time permitted (thanks to a lot o long flights), and tasted strange foods all over the World.

When I wake early each day, I follow my quest to empower others to discover their passions and contribute to a better planet ... for all of us. I am writing a book to do just that: wortharisk.com
