Women are ready to run for political office, but that preparation doesn’t matter if a candidate doesn’t have funds and endorsements, said founders of Women for the Future of Pittsburgh — aka WTF Pittsburgh. The political action committee has its first event Monday and wants to build a financial network that will help progressive women candidates break into the “boys’ club” of Pennsylvania politics. Here's what its four co-founders say matters most.
After years of decline, Pittsburgh International Airport certainly seems to be on an upward trajectory. Passenger rates are rising and new flights are being added. But it can be difficult to conceptualize a rebound spread out over weeks, months and years. For that reason, we at The Incline compiled data points on passenger rates and flight activity at PIT.

Here at The Incline, we were delighted to see Nova Place, home to our coworking space in Alloy 26, was hosting a gingerbread house competition. “Let’s enter,” we said. “It will be great,” we said.

In the meantime, here’s what our team learned about trying to make an iconic Pittsburgh hillside out of gingerbread and other treats.
