Confluence: "Pedestrian bridge connecting Globeville and Sunnyside opens"

Quoting the August 1 Confluence Denver posting by Margaret Jackson:

"The new pedestrian bridge connecting the Highlands and Sunnyside neighborhoods to Globeville neighborhood near the future 41st and Fox Station along the Regional Transportation District's G Line has opened.

On the Sunnyside end, the bridge is located at West 41st Avenue and Inca Street."

Interesting bit of my own Denver history. My Dad was born in his family home in Globeville on Lincoln Street in 1914. In 1920... they moved to a home in Sunnyside on Alcott St. It took roughly 96 years to "build the bridge."

Fox31 Denver: 'Text to 911 now available in Denver'

Quoting from the July 8th posting on the Fox31/Denver news site:

Denver gets about 1 million 911 calls per year, and that number is growing. Sometimes, dispatch operators are forced to put callers on hold because of volume. So more people are turning to social media to report crimes to police."

Fast Company: "Tips On Getting The Coveted Moms of Instagram To Love You, From A Brand That Did It"

Quoting from the May 5th Fast Company posting by Elizabeth Segran:

"Instagram recently conducted research that found that 93% of mothers in the U.S. use Instagram at least once a week, and 68% use it daily, checking it up to six times throughout the day. And given that one in four women over the age of 18 in the United States is a mom, that is a very large demographic. Women also tend to control the purse strings at home. Researchers predict that two-thirds of all consumer spending over the next decade will be driven by women."
