Pittsburgh has also made a great deal of progress with "going green", particularly at Phipps, which is the first building in a public garden to be LEED-certified. Because it is such a major international meeting, travellers should avoid the city at this time, as public transportation will not opperate during this time.

{{newsitem|Samoa Switches Driving Side from Right to Left|14 September 2009|Since the 1970s, no nation has undergone changes in which side of the road to drive on until this past Monday when [[Samoa]] officially switched to the right side. While many were initially worried that traffic accidents would rise, no crashes have been reported since the change. The only problem noted is that many of the public buses have not yet installed doors on the opposite side of the bus, making them unsafe for passangers getting let off onto the road instead of the sidewalk. Now that the switch has been made, those not in compliance are expected to make the necessary changes. [http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/asia-pacific/8247960.stm]}}
