Pittsburgh Regional FIRST Robotics Competition

FIRST combines the excitement of sports with science and technology to create a unique varsity Sport for the Mind™. Under strict rules, limited resources, and time limits, teams of students are challenged to design, build, test, brand, and find local funding to compete in a different game every year. This three day event is free and open to the public.
Tuesday, the New York Stock Exchange invoked Rule 48, a measure designed to smooth the opening of the market amid potentially volatile conditions. Rule 48 was designed to be executed only when a number of special conditions exist. They include volatility during the previous day’s trading, trading in foreign markets before the open, and government announcements. The stock exchange invoked it on three consecutive trading days last week and again yesterday morning.
