Robert Zullo gets it wrong. CRAP on this REPORTING from the P-G. There will be INDIE candidates that come to challenge the Ds. Sure, no Rs are going to win. But there is an election in November, and you can print a retraction or go back to 9th grade civics.
The four Pittsburgh City Council incumbents appeared headed for a victory over three candidates in a hotly-contested race in today’s Democratic primary, holding considerable leads over their opponents with nearly 98 percent of precincts reporting, according to unofficial Allegheny County Elections Division results. With no Republican opponents on the ballot, all four are all but assured of keeping their seats in the November election. In District...
Who wants to help us make a water polo knowledge app? We're going to do some "digital badges" and want to get a big, 100-200, set of test-like questions on the sport of water polo covering terms, norms, rules, tactics, strategies, jargon, and how-to photos.
So, first question. Are there any resources out there that are easily shared and could be put into the public domain if they are not there already?
If you'd like to help, send me an email or just send me an email with five questions and the correct answers.
Bang! Got great news today of a $1,000 grant from the Sprout Fund to play summer, evening, community water polo on the Northside. Saddle up every Monday and Wednesday from 6 to 7:30 at Citiparks' Sue Murray Pool.
Great outcome of this grant is that we'll be able to engage people at the pool with Digital Badges. We're going to have a Digital Badges for Water Polo, Swimming and SKWIM, plus Sportsmanship, Goals, Exercise and volunteering that will have direct connections to these efforts.
We are working on Digital Badges. One of our pending Digital Badges is to test water polo knowledge. If you'd like to submit a test question for our pending test, fill out the Google Form. The question, the right answer, and wrong answers are needed.
Thanks for the consideration. Simple questions are welcomed too as most of our Summer Dreamer students are in the 4th grade and have never played water polo before.
Friday night water polo now blending with staff training!
We are meeting with some of the youth who are interested in swimming, running, exercise and water polo as a swim instructor job placement if they get picked in the 2015 Learn & Earn program and are placed with the Bloomfield Garfield Corporation.
Sessions are Friday evenings at the Thelma Lovette YMCA swim pool, 2114 Centre Ave, Pittsburgh's Hill District, 15219. The YMCA facility is about 3 years old. Enter after 5 pm and the first time those under 18 arrive they have to be signed into the facility by an adult guardian. In other visits later, no adult is needed. No charge to enter. Bring swim suit and towel, of course. We start with some lap swimming and then play water polo drills and work on skills.
Think of these times at the YMCA as a professional development. If we are not good swimmers ourselves and know how to play the games and sport of water polo, we won't be good teachers to the younger kids in our charge in their summer activities.
Sue Murray Swim Pool on lower Northside. Sheridan Swim Pool in Sheridan (just past Langley) PCA / Greenway field and swim pool across street from Comcast. Homewood Swim Pool and Homewood Field, not far from Faison. West Penn Rec Center Swim Pool in Polish Hill Ammon Swim Pool on Bedford Ave in Hill District of course the SDA 2015 sites, especially the swim pools: Brashear / South Hills Middle School, Langley Faison. Then for later August, how about: Obama field and pool. South Side's Oliver Bath House and Cupples Stadium and Armstrong Park and Market House Rec Center. Oliver HS swim pool and track.
That infrastructure with WIFI would help in countless ways. Some of these spots above are NOT generally on the highest priority lists, but we're trying to fortify the facilities that get little use.
Got news today that we got GRANT FUNDING for $1,000 to play community, co-ed, summer, adult and kid, water polo in the evenings on the Northside at the Citipaks' Sue Murray Public Pool. We'll meet every Monday and Wednesday from 6 to 7:30 pm, weather permitting.
The money is for equipment. We'll buy some floating goals, caps and balls.
Until then, you can join us at 5 pm on Friday nights at the Thelma Lovette YMCA pool, indoor, on Centre Ave, Hill District.

We are making great progress on the Digital Badge efforts with our Swim & Water Polo Camp with the Summer Dreamers in 2015. Hired a Digital Badge Champion, Adam. Setting up our wiki pages now. He did a few sketches as well. Lots of work to do, but it is going to be fun and enriching.
Wikipedia and Wikia were both started by the same guy. Nearly identical open source software under the hood for both. We use the wikia pages and site for our literacy efforts and more. Each kid get his or her own page. We want to attach the digital badges to those pages in a seamless way.
