What To Do In Pittsburgh In April: Gateway Clipper Specials:
Springtime in Pittsburgh is a glorious sight: Tulips start springing up everywhere and the Pirates begin playing again. But the best part of spring is going outside to enjoy the nice weather–and where better to enjoy the lovely weather than on a river boat cruise? This April, we’re celebrating spring with specials for the whole family.

If you think your kids might be interested in outdoor mobile gaming with a good bit of exploration and a touch of history, this might be something to check out.  Ingress is Google's augmented reality game where you get gear to use in the game from real world sites which can then be used in a virtual Capture-the-Flag kind of thing. There are monthly local events the first Saturday of each month (Sunday next month, though), which can be good to help newer, lower level players to pick up the game from more experienced players and larger events where a thousand or more players might show up (http://Ingress.com/events).  The "scanner" refers to the mobile app.
Daniel Dlugos originally shared:
 
A x-faction event designed for the youngest agents among us! Many of our own kids have started picking up a scanner, so let's have fun exploring the zoo and getting to know each other.

There will be a scavenger hunt mission just for kids, as well as live animals!

I'll post more details as they come together, including buying discounted admission tickets as a group.

from +WTAE-TV Pittsburgh... Former PPG employee stole trade secrets for a *Chinese firm including formula for clear plastic windows for military aircraft and high speed transportation vehicles.

"If PPG owns my brain for life, then they should pay me 2 million a year to keep it!! I think I make my point!!" Rukavina wrote to the Chinese company. In another email, documents say he wrote "My salary at PPG when I left was $170,000... If possible, I would like a signing bonus of $80,000, as you will have access to all of PPG technology since 1947!!"

"It was just a little bit scary. Three police cars came flying down the street, they parked in front of my house, and then there were five or six unmarked cars. They all got out of the cars. They had vests on, and they were pounding on the door, trying to get into his house," said neighbor Rochelle Toney.  "One policeman told me to stay in the house. They were there nine hours yesterday, just going through stuff."

Toney said Rukavina revealed his travel plans to neighbors last week. "He said. 'I'm moving to China in three weeks." 
Charges say Thomas Rukavina provided a "recipe" to make windows for a military aircraft, involving "the industry's first new transparent plastic in more than 50 years," according to a complaint that charges him with stealing trade secrets in Pittsburgh and offering to sell information worth millions of dollars.
