There’s never been a better time for tech in Colorado

October 28th, 2018

A growing tech boom is starting to bring some of the biggest companies in the world to Colorado. Think Google, Twitter, Amazon, Apple, Facebook, and Microsoft. The Front Range is experiencing a “tech real estate gold rush.” According to the Colorado Tech Book 2018, “At least 61 tech companies expanded their presence and 22 tech companies opened new offices in the state over the past year, all looking to capitalize on Colorado’s deepening talent pool and inclusive entrepreneurial network.” Colorado tech companies are growing like crazy and are beginning to suck up commercial space.

Happy Halloween! Do you have your costume yet?

October 26th, 2018

Happy Halloween Colorado and beyond! I hope your October has been half-haunted, filled with tricks & treats as well as a ghost or two. If you have yet to pick up a costume… what are you waiting for?

It’s Official, Winter is Coming!

October 11th, 2018

Today marked the first snow of the season in Denver and Boulder, and as winter approaches, so does the need to get your ski trip(s) planned and lift and plane tickets booked! After coming off a rough 2017-2018 winter, you may be wondering where to shoot for this season. While it’s hard to go wrong with any of Colorado’s ski terrain, a whole trip can be “boom or bust” based on snow conditions. Luckily, NOAA and ENSO are here to help you make the most educated decision as possible. All indications so far are good news for powder chasers looking to explore Colorado’s terrain this season!... Read More

What Is A Rosin Press Used For?

August 16th, 2018

If you’re looking for a product that is pure and full of flavour, it’s hard to do any better than rosin. With no use of solvents, rosin is clean and versatile and offers plenty of versatility for dabbing. Rosin is one of the hottest new ways to enjoy a richer experience, but it can take a little more work to get the pure product. Skimp on any of the steps and you won’t end up with the depth of flavour and strength that rosin is renowned for. This is where a rosin press comes in, helping to process the raw product and producing rosin which can be used. Here’s a closer look at the rosin... Read More

What to do When Boulder’s Sirens Call

January 6th, 2018

As you may have heard, Boulder County’s most recent emergency warning systems test was Monday evening. Boulder’s flood season stretches from April through August, and that means the emergency warning systems need to be tested regularly. Flash floods are no joke, but neither are the 30+ sirens of Boulder County’s outdoor warning system. Following World War II most cities and towns in the United States incorporated siren alarm systems for civil defense. These were originally intended to warn civilians of impending air raids, hence the colloquial term “air raid sirens”.... Read More

Are the Flatirons Remnants of Ancient Beaches?

January 5th, 2018

You will learn how Boulder’s iconic Flatirons formed. Turns out, Boulder was once beachfront property. The Flatirons are Boulder’s favorite portion of the Fountain Formation, a geological formation of mostly red sandstone. This sandstone, more appropriately called “arkose” gets its color from the pinkish feldspar contained it it. This red rock makes up the Red Rocks of Morrison and the Garden of the Gods in Colorado Springs. The Fountain Formation stretches from Colorado Springs all the way to Wyoming. The reddish color is due to the concentration of feldspar in the sandstone,... Read More

Faces of Denver – Matt

November 30th, 2017

Meet Matt.  Matt is a local artist who relocated to Boulder from Austin, Texas last March after a realization sparked a wave of inspiration for his artwork. Matt grew up in Corpus Christie, Texas with two brothers considerably older than himself, which played a crucial role in Matt’s initial plunge into the world of art. Because of the age gap, Matt and his brothers didn’t always have similar interests when he was younger.  So, when his brothers were out on the football field with their friends, Matt would head to the library or arcade to get lost in the world of Todd Mcfarlane’s horror-fantasy... Read More

What Are You Dankful for This Year?

November 29th, 2017

This article may come at you a little late this year, being that Thanksgiving was last week, but it is never too late to be thankful, or dankful this season. I normally like to use this column as an outlet to bemoan about something that most people would bend over backward for. It can be fun to sit back and air my grievances about the weed industry, after all, it is the landscape I see every day. Fortunately, the industry I work in is hot right now, so it affords me this outlet. No grievances today though, just love. I am dankful for all the amazing growers out there. Indoor farmers and outdoor... Read More

I hope everyone had a terrific Turkey Day and gave thanks for what they love most. Personally, I am extremely thankful for the wonderful city of Boulder, and all of the beer that comes along with it! But what is it that makes the beer in Boulder so delicious? Well, Boulder is a booming mecca for the craft beer industry, and happens to be home of the highly regarded Brewer’s Association. The Brewer’s Association is an organization that was implemented in order to protect independent brewers and their craft. In the name of protecting craft beers, the Brewer’s Association has launched their... Read More

A Spit Test May Diagnose Your Concussion

November 22nd, 2017

In 2013, the most recent year for which we have data, there were about 2.8 million traumatic brain injury-related emergency room visits, hospitalizations and deaths in the US, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Up to 25% of kids have long-term symptoms that can last up to four months. In a recent study, Penn State College of Medicine scientists found five... Read More

Meet me on the dark side of the moon!

August 14th, 2017

By now, you’ve probably heard about the upcoming total eclipse taking place on Monday August 21, 2017.  While it’s not unusual to hear about an eclipse taking place somewhere in the world, it is a bit unique that it has been 99 years since the residents of the US have been in the direct path of such a celestial event.  In fact, NASA hosts Eclipse2017 , a website dedicated to the upcoming eclipse with interactive maps, events, education, and even how to host a viewing party. Where to view:  If you live in Boulder, you can expect a partial eclipse of about 93.1 percent, which is still... Read More
