MILE HIGH MUSIC

Attraction
Images: 

Denver is often referred to as the mile high city, where residents enjoy 300 days of sunshine, a thriving cultural scene, multicultural and diverse neighborhoods, with natural landscapes, which all add up to the world's most spectacular playground.

A young, active city at the base of the Colorado Rocky Mountains, Denver's stunning architecture, award-winning dining and unparalleled views attract many, while Denver's seven professional sports teams entertain year-round. If all of this weren't enough...

Since Colorado made retail sales of marijuana legal this year, residents have been having lots of fun. Tomorrow, Colorado Symphony musicians will begin performing a series of concerts they call "Classically Cannabis: The High Note Series."

The region's premier orchestra is rolling into the state's premiere burgeoning business, controversy be damned. The orchestra is holding a series of bring-your-own-marijuana fundraisers sponsored by the state’s newly legal cannabis industry.

CLASSICALLY CANNABIS: THE HIGH-NOTE SERIES:
o Friday, May 23, Pan American Highway
o Friday, July 18, Mississippi Blues Highway
o Friday, August 15, Summer Monsoon

With an altitude of 5,280 feet, we will attempt to find out how much higher the group got.

Detroit sings the blues

News

Find it at Longitude 83 Degrees 9' 11" W / Latitude 42 Degrees 28' 54" N, but it finds itself in deep doodoo. Detroit city officials are urging a judge to approve their plan to get out of bankruptcy, and solve some really bad crap by wiping out billions in debt and spending $1.7 billion on improved services services for the Motor City.

Judge Steven Rhodes is expected to rule on November 7 whether the largest public bankruptcy in U.S. history is fair and feasible. It's an up-or-down ruling: He can't choose parts he likes and scratch others.

How to sleep much better

Solution

Chronic pain and insomnia are an unhealthy combination. According to the National Sleep Foundation, chronic pain disturbs the slumber of one in five Americans at least a few nights a week. Whether it’s from a bad back, arthritis, or headaches, chronic pain puts you in double jeopardy: the pain robs you of restful sleep and makes you more fatigued, and thus more sensitive to pain.

Readiness for Socialism

Following 20 years as the now retired sociologist in residence at Marist College. I want to comment briefly here on the current presidential election process in relation to my experience when Obama was running for president in 2008.

For background, I have considered myself to be essentially a "democratic socialist" akin to Bernie Sanders since 1968.
