      Denver Short-Term Rentals

      Owners seeking to rent their homes to vacationing visitors would have to be primary residents with permits and would pay the city's lodger's tax under regulations being discussed by the Denver City Council's Sharing Economy Task Force.

      Entrepreneurs start 10-day race to solve 10 big health problems

      In this age of technology, it's mind-boggling to think that as many as one in five patients are misidentified at hospitals nationwide. Or that antibiotic-resistent infections — many attributed to doctors not washing their hands — cause 23,000 deaths a year.

      Locals probably already know the lore of tracking Santa's journey on Christmas Eve.

      But to recap for newbies — like me — it all started in 1955 with one fateful misprinted Sears newspaper advertisement. The ad included a phone number for kids to to call to talk to Santa.

      NASA's Orion spacecraft will launch Dec. 4 on EFT-1 into deep space

      In July 1969, America watched with rapt attention as Neil Armstrong placed the first human footprints on the moon. This perfect "one small step" set an entire generation of dreamers, explorers and risk-takers on a trajectory to the stars.
