More Bacon, Bison, Salumi?… Food Trends You Can Expect To See In 2016

One of the fun things about one year ending, and another starting, is predicting how the next 12 months are going to go. So I thought I'd write up a "food trends for 2016″ blog post because nobody ever does this.OK, everybody does this, and I just don't want to be left out. So here are some of the food trends that I think will be on the nation's menu in 2016. The end of tipping. It isn't that tipping at restaurants will become obsolete in 2016, but David Corsun, director of the Fritz Knoebel School of Hospitality Management at the University of Denver's Danie… ...

WHO’s Report On Processed Meat And Cancer Not Likely To Hurt Meat Industry

It was news only a vegetarian or vegan could love.Earlier this week, as you’ve likely heard, the World Health Organization‘s International Agency for Research on Cancer released a report that states emphatically that processed meats, like hot dogs and bacon, cause cancer.The news media was all over that, like, well, pigs on slop.Of course, it should be noted that the report stated that the problem is for those who eat 50 grams of processed meat every day – less than two slices of ham or bacon, according to numerous reports. Doing that will increase the risk of can… ...

Individual Leases Offer Benefits, Drawbacks To Renters « CBS Denver // // // // // // // // In the last few years individual apartment leases have become popular in college towns. The benefit is that you’re not held responsible for the whole rent if your roommates move out, but the downside is you don’t always get to choose with whom you live.When Nicholas Warren transferred to the University of Colorado Boulder he decided to sign an individual lease.“I didn’t know anybody so when I was looking for a place I didn’t have anyone to share a lease with,” Warren said.A… ...

Frontier, Other Low-Cost Airlines Drop Toll-Free Numbers

Frontier, Other Low-Cost Airlines Drop Toll-Free Numbers

The ultra-low-cost airline, Frontier, recently took yet another step to reduce costs: eliminating its toll-free number for customers. It’s something that other low cost airlines — Spirit and Allegiance — have also done.Frontier says the move will save it about $1.9 million dollars a year, savings it can then pass along to customers. And the airline’s spokesperson, Jim Faulkner, says that they’ve found most of their customers are using cell phones now, often with free long-distance plans, rendering the toll-free number less important.

Frontier Airlines eliminates toll-free customer service calls

Anyone looking to call Frontier Airlines now needs to check their available phone minutes before dialing. The Denver-based ultra-low-cost carrier last month did away with its toll-free customer service number in favor of a Salt Lake City phone number — a long-distance call for any landline user outside that part of Utah. The airline says the change saves about $160,000 per month — which equates to about $1.9 million per year — which can be passed along to customers.

Colorado Restaurant Experts Weigh Pros, Cons Of Skipping The Tip

Colorado Restaurant Experts Weigh Pros, Cons Of Skipping The Tip

A handful of restaurant owners across the United States are telling customers to skip the tip. They’re hoping to lead a revolution for better pay, and maybe benefits, for their wait staff. Rather than having customers tip, these restaurants are testing other models --  like adding a mandatory 20 percent surcharge when the check comes to the table. Abrusci's Italian restaurant in Wheat Ridge, Colo. implemented the idea about a week ago, said co-owner Nancy Progar, which has allowed full-time wait staff to receive salaries. "We've been watching the restaurants in t… ...

Garrett County takes the right approach to fracking

Garrett County takes the right approach to fracking

Unlike some other states, Maryland refused to jump willy-nilly on the hydraulic fracturing bandwagon. Instead, Maryland has proceeded slowly and deliberately, preferring, if it errs, to be on the side of caution. Considering how the story of fracking has developed in recent years, the cautious approach has proved valuable. As we said in a past editorial on this subject, Maryland can live without fracking, which is the process of injecting liquid at high pressure into subterranean rocks to force open fissures that then release oil and gas. However, the matter of w… ...

Immigrants make great entrepreneurs

Immigrants make great entrepreneurs

A few years ago, I toured the Flatbush neighborhood in Brooklyn, the New York City borough where my father grew up. My dad, Alex, was the son of hard-working, ambitious immigrants from Eastern Europe. Like most immigrants, they came to this shore seeking a better life for their children – more economic opportunity, more political and religious freedom. Walking around my father's old neighborhood was like taking a trip back in time, except the immigrants I saw were from the Caribbean instead of Eastern Europe, black instead of white, and spoke with a different acc… ...

Does Hong Kong gain from China’s stock meltdown?

Nearly a year ago, when pro-democracy protests brought parts of Hong Kong's business and commercial districts to a halt, there were signs that the Chinese government was looking to push the former British Crown Colony into the background as an international financial hub, while encouraging the two major mainland stock exchanges in Shanghai and Shenzhen to flourish.But the events of the past week or so, when the world watched the mainland Chinese stock market lose more than 30 percent of its value, have renewed focus on Hong Kong's long-es… ...

Housing Options May Curb Rent Growth

Housing Options May Curb Rent Growth

Buttressed by high occupancy rates, apartment landlords in many U.S. markets are aggressively hiking rents at a rate that many commercial real estate experts believe is unsustainable as their competition grows. Developers are beginning to add new units at a pace that's outstripping demand, and more first-time homebuyers are entering the market amid still-low interest rates and low-down-payment programs targeting the group. So far, however, the shifting dynamics have failed to faze landlords. While some owners in Denver and other hot markets are providing moving… ...

4 Reasons It Can Be Better to Rent Instead of Buy a Home

4 Reasons It Can Be Better to Rent Instead of Buy a Home

Amar Shukla, a 24-year-old engineer at online textbook company Chegg, decided that buying a home was an investment he wanted to make. With some financial help from his parents, he recently bought a 900-square foot home in San Jose, California. “As long as I’m going to be paying to live somewhere, then I might as well get something out of it in the long run,” Shukla says. To him, answering the classic question “is it better to rent or buy?” was easy. But owning a home isn’t the best move for everyone. For those weighing renting vs. buying, here are a few reasons… ...
