Funding Educators: The Money and Organizations Keeping Roofs over Teachers’ Heads

Teachers help our children acquire important knowledge, develop powerful thinking skills, and attain the talents required to excel at a craft and achieve professional success. However, the pay that our government provides for the teachers of our children is disproportionately inadequate for the magnitude of the position.

An Unsettling Time

“It couldn’t happen here. Not like that. Trump loves Israel. His own daughter is Jewish. You’re being ridiculous.”

Spotlight on Brian Regan: “He just goes out and kills.”

Ask any pro comic about Brian Regan, and their response will be some variation of that quote. Try it. For more than 30 years, he’s been turning clubs and theaters inside out with a steady stream of hilarity, thanks to an almost supernatural ability to write relatable material and a deft sense of timing and physical comedy.

Off Menu with Josh Dinar, River and Woods in Boulder

Fifteen minutes into our interview, I confessed something to Josh that only a handful of people know. A decade ago, I started a group for people of many interests and pursuits, a gathering that I aptly named Renaissance People. We took turns pitching our ideas, ruminating about our triumphs and failures and navigating a world full of people who say, “You need to just focus on one thing” and specialization equals success.

Sexual Education and how Colorado’s New Bill is Changing the Way we Teach

I want to have The Talk. You know, the sex one. Birds and the Bees. The one we all had when we were young. Except this time it’s not going to be awkward and cringe-worthy. It’s going to be honest and open. When many of us think back to our own sexual health courses we remember condom coated bananas, anonymous anything-goes questions, and dreadful birth videos.

Crisis in Rural America: Farm Exodus

Farming is back breaking work. It doesn't pay well and it is certainly not glamorous, unless of course your name is Eddie Albert, you're a 60's sitcom star on the set of Green Acres. Otherwise, to farm is to toil endlessly for little reward, if the reward is not found in the work itself. On top of that, farmers face several challenges on a day to day basis.

Community Corner: Darkest Before the Dawn?

If the truism that it is always darkest before the dawn holds up, local and national government policy on homelessness must soon see positive change. Current policy across the country has indeed gotten darker, from Trump vilifying people experiencing homelessness for causing harm to those seeking “prestigious real estate” and placing “real-life horror” Robert Marbut in the role of national homeless czar, to Redding, CA, Mayor Julie Winter seeking to lock them up until they can “demonstrate self-sufficiency.”
