  • Colorado Set To Bid For Host Of The Winter Olympics

    Posted on December 30 2017


    Various Denver city officials along with the Governor of Colorado recently held a meeting to discuss the possibility of bidding to host the Winter Olympics or the Winter Paralympic Games. In 1976, the city had put together a bid to host the winter games but due to the immense unhappiness among the people of the city the Olympic committee decided against it.  

    The city officials believe that hosting the games provides an excellent opportunity for the city, and provides for a good chance for the people living in the city to look at the economic and social aspect of hosting this event. The state of Colorado is known to be a prime destination for all kinds of winter sports and has some of the best sporting venues in the entire country.

    Posted on April 30 2017


    New information indicates that something is rotten in the city of Denver as far as finding a job that pays enough money to support a family with one, single position goes. The city has one of the lowest unemployment rates and has a strong economy, so this issue should not exist. However, they are only a mask to the truth about what is really going on for people who try to find a single job to support themselves in this city. In short, it has become one of the best cities where which people want to work and live. However, there is one problem: the cost of living is super high, and people’s wages do not match this concern, so they have to work more than one job in order to make a living in a city where the cost of living is rather high.

Some of these jobs include non-profit organizations, health care, education, and so on. Everything from an entry-level administrative assistant to head honcho CEO positions is available.

  • Denver's Tiny Home Solution to Homelessness

    Posted on March 30 2017


    Homelessness is a problem everywhere, but those in Colorado are experiencing this issue at a different scale. 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.

    What are Tiny Homes?

    Tiny homes are high-efficiency homes that allow a person to live in a small area. This type of house is eco-friendly and usually does not take much money or time to build. It is quite popular among millennials as an alternative to buying a regular home. One of the reasons people love it is because it limits space, making those that dwell in these homes minimalists.

    The tiny homes that are going to be built in Denver will be completely off grid. This means solar panels will provide lights, power, and temperature control to each of the units.

  • Denver Entrepreneur Introduces Smart Energy Solution

    Posted on March 16 2017


    With the Internet of Things becoming an integral part of everyday living, even the process of controlling energy consumption has entered the realm of connectivity. Cody Miller, an entrepreneur from Denver, turned this concept into reality through the Ion Smart Outlet. This handy energy saving device remotely controls electricity usage through a smartphone or electronic tablet. 

    The innovative device seeks to address standby power issues at home and at work. Homes and businesses unknowingly waste power every day. Plugged electronic devices, even when turned off, still siphon electricity from the grid. Even if that device looks blissfully resting in one corner, it may be quietly tugging through the electric meter.

  • Denver Ski Train Off to a Great Start

    Posted on February 23 2017


    Colorado's Winter Park Express put the ski train back in business, and that business is having a great run. Traveling between Denver and Winter Park Resort usually only on Saturdays and Sundays, the seasonal train service is often sold out. 

    The Amtrak ski train is a revival of a historic train service between Denver and Winter Park to the northwest. The renewed service began Jan. 7, 2017, and is scheduled to continue through March 26. More than 15,000 people had ridden the ski train by Feb. 14, which was about the midpoint of its planned trips for the ski season. The train can carry 554 passengers. 

    The original rail service connecting Denver and Winter Park, which sometimes is spelled Winterpark, started in 1912, and weekend journeys were added in 1940. In 2009, the service ended, partly because of financial reasons.
