In Case You Missed It: "Adam Scott to make Denver-set pot sitcom ‘Buds’ for NBC"

ICYMI: Quoting from the Feb 20 "the Cannabist" posting:

"NBC might soon have a sitcom on its schedule set inside a Denver pot shop, according to multiple reports. And with the announcement of “Buds” — from creative team Adam Scott (from the network’s near-death “Parks and Recreation”) and Joe Mande (a comic, writer and Twitter phenom) — cannabis has broached a different aspect of mainstream media...

 ...'Buds' is a part of NBC’s 2015-16 development cycle, according to various outlets. Its executive producers are Adam and (his producer wife) Naomi Scott and Mande, and it’s the first sale since the Scotts’ production company Gettin’ Rad Productions signed a first-look deal with Universal TV in 2014."

Innovation and Job News: "State of Downtown Denver 2015 has plenty to praise"

Quoting from Chris Meehan's posting yesterday in Confluence Denver:

"Last year, downtown Denver saw $1 billion in investments through completed projects. In 2015, that figure is expected to nearly double to $1.9 billion. That's just one key takeaway from the State of Downtown Denver 2015 event, hosted by the Downtown Denver Partnership (DDP) on March 24.

There was a host of data showing the recent successes of Denver and how the city is poised to keep growing -- for instance, residential population has grown 165 percent since 2010. "In order to ensure future success we need to understand what we did right to get us where we are today," explained DDP CEO Tami Door at the event."

Denver Ranks 9th of "2015’s Hardest Working Cities in America"

Quoting CBS4 in Denver:

"WalletHub studied 116 of the most populated cities, using seven key factors to determine the hardest workers. And two Colorado cities fall in the top 20.

Aurora, CO ranks as the 16th hardest working city in America. Its workweek hours average 38.5, and the labor force participation rate is 78.6%.

Still, Aurora isn’t working as hard as Denver, which ranked the 9th hardest-working out of 116 cities in the U.S. 

The average workweek hours for those in Denver is 38.9 (New York City is 39.2), with a labor force participation rate of 78.5%."

Quoting WalletHub, "The modern-day American worker would no doubt seem unrecognizable to its mid-20th century predecessor. Back in 1950, Americans were 400 percent less productive than they are today, according to Bureau of Labor Statistics data. Were we lazier then? Not at all."
