UPMC, wounds and possible zombies

UPMC made it onto Nerdist News this week.  Jessica Chobot discusses the healthcare giant’s research into trauma treatment, specifically technology to help save a patient after a gunshot or stabbing wound:

In case the video doesn’t show above, the link will take you there.

The show displays a nice view of the Steel Tower, and they did mention what first jumped to my mind: the beginning of the zombie outbreak.  I mean, this is Pittsburgh after all.

Power Out at Shadyside Hospital Buildings?

I just called my doctors office which is located in the building next to Shadyside hospital and was told to call back later because they have no power. I asked if it was just the computers or all power is out. The nurse said all power was down. I don’t know if this has impacted the hospital or not but I hope it gets fixed soon.   What could be causing a power outage in the  Shadyside/Oakland area? (more…)

___________ (adjective)

Nine days after it was announced, and almost a week since the letters began to appear on our skyline (read the story here), the USX tower still provides a Pittsburgh MadLib.  Now granted, the first day I saw the letters, I was a little confused and did not make the connection that there should be an “M” in the middle of “UP   C,” but I’ll chalk that up to my brain not quite firing on all cylinders that early in the morning.

 Anyway, I snapped these pictures, more updates to come as work progresses, and if I ever find myself in a place to see the third side of the building.
