Zombies as crash test dummies? It could happen

It appears that America has a new obsession with zombies. What was relegated to “B movie” status in the 1980’s has appeared to have made a comeback in the 21st century. Movies like “Warm Bodies” and “World War Z” along with AMC’s “The Living Dead” are very popular offerings.

'5 to Drive' goals are important for teen driver safety

If there’s one thing that scares parents of teen drivers to death, it is the specter of their child being involved in a horrific accident on a night (like prom night or a homecoming dance) that is supposed to be a memorable occasion. It is this fear that drives some parents to keep their children at home and host parties where they may allow them to consume alcohol.

Government budget resolution may improve business climate

It seems cliché to say that politics influences business successes, but sometimes there are instances where there is truth to that notion. The latest vote regarding funding apportionments and the increase of the nation's debt ceiling appears to have saved the national economy from potential disaster, and was met with cautious optimism from the stock market.

Divorce case broadly relevant for its focus on shielding assets

A key aspect of most divorce negotiations and settlements in Colorado and every other state is asset division. In Colorado, that is carried out in a manner similar to most other states, namely, through what is termed an equitable distribution of property.

Steak 'n Shake returning to Denver

If you are a fan of Steak ‘n Shake, prepare to be relieved (or surprised). The popular fast food chain will be returning to the Metro Denver area after being on hiatus due to a lawsuit between area franchise owners and the company’s Indianapolis based headquarters. A federal judge had ordered that the restaurants be closed pending resolution of several issues between the parties.

How entrepreneurs can grow by firing themselves

As rewarding as entrepreneurship can be for small business owners, it can sometimes be isolating and limiting. This is arguably why most entrepreneurs are not successful. However, those who strive for success never do it alone. Instead, they rely on a team of advisors that help them grow not only through the business, but also as people.

'Glass' may break drivers' concentration behind the wheel

If you think the commercials linking clips of different characters communicating with people through “futuristic” watch phones, it is interesting to think about how Google’s Glass will be introduced to the world. For the uninitiated, Glass is the smartphone display and camera that is mounted on a pair of eyeglasses, and changes the use and experience of a cell phone (or computer for that matter).

Same-sex custody dispute takes material twist in state on appeal

Given that a family law case in another state has been described as "unprecedented" and is reportedly the first of its type to work its way through the courts, readers in Colorado and elsewhere might be interested to hear the details.

Jury to decide case that led to massive Toyota recalls

In the last few years, Toyota Motor Corporation has had to defend itself from a slew of lawsuits stemming from sudden accelerations that resulted in tragic accidents. Many may recall the horrific accidents in California and Utah where Camry based vehicles accelerated to over 100 miles per hour and crashed, despite drivers’ frantic efforts to get the cars to stop.
