Guess pull has become a popular word these days.
I see that as deliberate confusing and expansion of the word.
What do you see?
The date on that article is after steins interview, i think. 5 am. Forgive me if i'm wrong.

2) Can someone explain to me what 'putting a transit' on something means?

somewhere along the line 'will collapse' got mistranslated as 'has collapsed'.

Evidence of the BBC reporting 7 WTC's collapse is interesting, but what I would really like to know is who were the BBC's sources? Which feeds or news services informed them twenty minutes prior that the 7 WTC "will collapse" or "has collapsed".

Interesting. I don't know if this is common for fire-fighters to do? does anyone else? Do they carry surveying equip around. Or were engineers/ surveyors on the scene by then?

yes but why didnt the 911 commision mention any of this in the offical report.
A local construction survey company was managing "transits" to measure the building's movements. Transits are used to measure grade and elevation electronically. They were fixed on a point on the side of the building and checked about every five minutes to see if the building had moved, Lacko said. But the transits could give inaccurate readings because they were unable to filter out vibrations from heavy machinery or other factors in the area.
The readings caused numerous false alarms that required areas to be evacuated for hours at a time. "The search and rescue folks were on for 20 minutes and then off for two to three hours," Albarelli said.
Lacko's team used laser Doppler vibrometers, which send out laser signals that hit pieces of reflective tape and then beam signals back that help workers determine the vibrational frequency of the structure, he said. The tool sits on a tripod and is about 5 inches tall and 12 inches long.
"The laser Doppler vibrometer measures a building's frequency and whether it's vibrating five times a second, or if it moved six micrometers or six centimeters," Lacko said. "It determines how much it's actually moving and at what frequency."
Rescuers were able to home in on the building's frequency because it was different from the ones created by heavy machinery and jackhammers, he said.
The laser Doppler vibrometer was set up about 20 feet from the transit station — where the air horn used to alert personnel of a work stoppage was also kept — and the two tools were used together to help eliminate false alarms. "It gave all the workers in and around that point better security at the time as to whether that building was going to come down," Lacko said. "There was more technology on site to determine if the building was stable. Several different workers thanked us for coming."
However, if we factor in CNN's Aaron Brown reporting that Building 7 "has collapsed or is collapsing" at 4:15PM EST, then that's over an hour before the building imploded into its own footprint.

But then to have it happen so close to your prediction??????
There is only one conclusion.
