Wild Animals Exploring Cities in Japan, Thailand, California, Colorado [VIDEO]

March 31st, 2020

With less humans moving around cities, wild animals are slowly moving into human territory. In Japan, deer are wandering the streets and getting into Dumpsters as less tourists have meant less freebies from humans feeding them. Deer have also been spotted near the airports in London as there have been less flights. Monkeys have been spotted in India and Thailand near once-popular shops as they are hunting for food. In California, wild turkeys have been spotted on shuttered school grounds. In Italy, the lack of boat traffic has led to crystal clear waters and wildlife, including swans, fish, and... Read More

Up The Down Elevator

March 29th, 2020

The Platform is streaming on Netflix now.   It’s hard enough for a quality film to break through to audiences under normal circumstances. The Motion Picture Association of America tells us that, despite the usual fluctuations, an average of 600 movies are released yearly. Of that number, some of them have advantages. Major studio backing and a multimillion-dollar marketing campaign can get a film a hell of a lot closer to the finish line of profitability, regardless of its actual quality. But, as you’ve probably noticed, we’re a country mile past “normal” these days. Going to the movies... Read More

Dear Sports – A Love Letter

March 28th, 2020

Dear Sports,   I know that I’m not one to express my feelings in words, or have my emotions lead me towards tears.  (Except in that last scene in the movie Rudy, when he goes sprinting on to the field at the end).  But last night I found myself staring out the window, lost and empty, wondering if you were ever to return. Please know that I don’t blame you for walking away.  In fact, the distance between us has allowed me some time to reflect.  The truth is that I never appreciated you like I should have, nor did I give you the attention that you richly deserved.  All those nights... Read More

How to Safely Order Takeout During the Coronavirus Outbreak

March 28th, 2020

There’s no evidence that COVID-19 is transmitted through food or food packaging, as is stated by the Food and Drug Administration: “Unlike foodborne gastrointestinal (GI) viruses like norovirus and hepatitis A that often make people ill through contaminated food, SARS-CoV-2, which causes COVID-19, is a virus that causes respiratory illness,” the agency’s website reads. “Foodborne exposure to this virus is not known to be a route of transmission.”‘ The overwhelming evidence shows that COVID-19 is transmitted from being in close contact with an infectious person,... Read More

The Digital Decameron

March 27th, 2020

Ten writers. Ten days. One hundred stories.   And so, at last, it has come to this: The world ends, not with a bang, but a whimper, not a bomb, but a bug. We don’t ride out in a blaze of glory in a nuclear explosion, but it all ends in the pestilential isolation of our screens. We have been ever-further socially distant for years, but now that it’s a mandate, we seek ever more connection through our last remaining (fiber optic cable) lines. It would serve us well to remember that in this, as in all things, nothing is new. We are only as we ever have been and will always be, in times of... Read More

I’ll Have a Corona…Virus

March 26th, 2020

It is not unknown that society as we have come to know it is limping along due to the pandemic we have addressed as COVID-19, or the coronavirus. Businesses have closed down, whole cities are on lockdown, individuals are falling ill left and right—this is all incredibly stressful. Anyone can tell you how easy it is to fall into a state of panic because of this virus and what professionals have been telling us, but it is very important to keep in mind that we are all dealing with this together and we can get through this. This can be as simple as making sure the elderly have the opportunity to... Read More

They are always those days where we feel blah, sometimes worse. I view myself as a generally positive person, but there are those moments when I feel like I can’t pull myself out a funk.

Colorado Real Estate Update

March 25th, 2020

Despite recent events, the real estate market has not yet hit a pause in Colorado. There are still new listings going up, and properties are selling, albeit at a slower pace than the last few weeks. The biggest factor that changed was properties withdrawn from the market, which increased considerably–understandable given the uncertainty regarding jobs right now and in the near future. Compared to last week: New Listings: 2438 – Up 16% from prior week Properties Pending: 2307 – Down 13% from prior week. Properties Withdrawn: 471 – Up 111% from prior week Properties Sold: 1744 – Down... Read More
