Dairy Center’s renovations will squeeze Boulder’s performance space options during construction

By Elizabeth Miller
Performing arts companies in Boulder have few options for venues to book within city limits that meet the needs dictated by time, space and cost. Theater companies in town point to The Dairy Center for the Arts as the only real option for a professional production. But with the planned closures of its theatrical performance spaces, the East and the Carson theaters, from January to August 2016, those theater companies won’t just be bumping up against one another trying to fit into limited space for their productions. They’ll be downright homeless.

By Taylor Winchell
Greg Salvesen, an astrophysics graduate student at the University of Colorado Boulder, didn’t compete on his high school track team. His running hobby began in college with a casual exercise routine, generally peaking around eight miles. In 2008, he completed his first half-marathon.

Old King Coal is sick — but not yet dying

Construction of coal-fired power stations is declining, but the trend is not enough to avert the risk of climate change reaching dangerous levels.

They say this rate is significantly higher in Europe, South Asia, Latin America and Africa. In India, since 2012, six plants have been cancelled for each one built.

It’s a little harder to accept the racist activity or the perpetuation of a privilege structure from someone who claims to be colorblind or not racist or liberal.”
