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%." Link to the CBS4 postingQuoting
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." Link to the WalletHub Rankings

Quoting the DBJ's Caitlin Hendee from yesterday's posting:
"If the acres of garden displays, numerous
events, and rows of flowers and plants weren't enough to draw you to Denver Botanic Gardens in 2014, then perhaps the Dale
Chihuly glass sculptures were.
They certainly were for the 1,411,116 visitors who made their way to the Denver
attraction in 2014, setting the Botanic Gardens apart as the most-visited public garden in North America last year."Link to the Denver Business JournalLink to the Denver Botanic Gardens' Website

Mar 10, 2015 - Inc: '74 Attention-Grabbing Blog Titles That Actually Work'
2:55 pm edt
If your blog headlines need a booster shot, make sure to read Larry Kim's article about Twelveskip's headline idea list. Quoting Kim, Twelvestep's list may not be the full solution:
"Seriously though, those types of headlines are incredibly effective, but they're not
the be all that ends all. In fact, they work really well in social stories, but will just annoy people if you're blogging
about your business and related topics.
So what's a run-of-the-mill blogger
Develop a bank of catchy titles you can draw on to ensure you have lots
of ideas to draw from and your titles aren't an afterthought."

Feb 27, 2015 - Denver International Airport: Celebrating Two Decades and Ambitious New Plans...Happy 20th Birthday, DIA!
2:07 pm est
from the Metro Denver Economic Development Corporation:
"A lot can happen in 20 years. In Metro Denver,
we’ve seen it all – a massive light rail expansion, a growing Millennial population that is attracting companies
and expansive mixed-use developments, four new professional sports stadiums, the revitalization of countless neighborhoods,
and the diversification of the region’s industry base with eight major clusters.
Denver International Airport (DIA) is a glowing example of just how good two decades can look. Established in 1995 as the
largest airport in the United States by total area, this regional economic engine is now consistently ranked as one of the
busiest airports in the world. It now houses 109 gates and 42 regional aircraft positions, and served a record 53 million
passengers last year, a massive growth from figures seen on its first birthday.
Now, as we collectively celebrate
the 20th anniversary of this important pillar of Metro Denver’s growth, on Saturday, Feb. 28, we are also excited to
embrace a rapidly evolving DIA into the future and the further growth anticipated on the immediate horizon."
