In a new series, we're bringing you Pittsburgh's wackiest college classes. They’re the ones that make you ask: “There’s really a college class on that?” and “Why wasn’t that around when I was in school?” First up is “Texting: Language Or Laziness?” — yes, a class all about texting — at Carlow. Here's what's on the syllabus.
Thousands packed Downtown on Monday for the annual Labor Day parade, one of the largest in the nation. In Oakland, supporters of the “Fight for $15” rallied, part of 400 protests across the country, WPXI reported. The group rallied for $15 an hour wages and union rights. If you missed the parade, we chronicled it on our Instagram story; follow along at @theinclinepgh.

Pittsburgh loves pizza — a lot. So much so that our city ranked No. 2 in the nation for the number of pizza parlors per capita. We've got jumbo slices, Detroit-style pizza, wood-fired varieties and even pizza topped with cold cheese. But with all that to choose from, we want to know: Which is the Ultimate Pittsburgh Pizza? We need your help to narrow the field to just 32 contenders for an NCAA-style bracket (just like our fish fry and food truck competitions). Celebrate National Cheese Pizza Day by nominating your favorite here (and with a slice later).
Dogs from Texas shelters were expected to arrive in Pittsburgh on Monday and they could be up for adoption very soon, KDKA reported. The Pittsburgh Aviation Animal Rescue Team picked up the dogs, which were already up for adoption in Texas before Hurricane Harvey. Per KDKA, clearing out the shelters will free up space for pets that were impacted by the hurricane.
