    LED lights are quickly becoming the most favored light source in American households. The United States Department of Energy has estimated that due to rising demand, prices for LED bulbs have dropped ninety percent since 2008.

Recently conducted studies about switching over to LED lighting have shown individual projected savings are greater than $1,000 over the span of the next 10 years.

Statistics show that the state just saw a 24 percent spike of homeless veterans, which has definitely alarmed some in the state. Denver is taking on the fight in a creative way by introducing a tiny village for homeless people.
