Edward C. Baig USA TODAY Published 1:08 PM EST Mar 6, 2019 You grab your keys, smartphone and wallet when you leave the house. Would it be such a disaster if you left that last one behind? In the not too distant future, it may not be. Your physical wallet is on borrowed time. Your phone, after all, increasingly provides the utility in digital form for the many reasons you schlep a Costanza-sized billfold in the first place, from showing off pictures to making mobile payments. Think about it. At the airport, you hand your iPhone or Android handset, rather than a paper document, to the TSA agent who inspects and scans your boarding pass. You scan your phone entering ballparks, movie theaters and concert halls, too.

Ted Evanoff Memphis Commercial Appeal Published 10:00 AM EDT Oct 13, 2018 Some wore suits. Some wore T-shirts. They all came with the same question. How do I get a job? You hear that asked often in Memphis, Joseph "C.J." Harris said. Even after what just happened, you hear it often. Memphis job market Hiring was strong all summer. Almost one of every two people living in the region drew a paycheck by August. Employers added 4,500 new positions from May into August, when 655,500 payroll jobs were counted in metropolitan Memphis. Historic? In a way. This was the most jobs ever measured here in any August in any year. Still, there was that question. Part-time jobs How do I get in the door? Some 71,200 new full- and part-time jobs have emerged in metropolitan Memphis since January 2011, when employment fell to the low point for a region then still mired in recession. Today, employers contend they can’t grow more quickly. They’ve run out of skilled workers. Yet … [Read more...] about Memphis residents ask, ‘Why can’t I get a job?’
Is 13 an unlucky number? It sure seems so this year, since we hapless Colorado voters will be asked to decide on 13 ballot issues, including six referred by the state legislature, three initiated constitutional amendments and four statutory initiatives. But don’t worry! I’m not going to give you a dreary list of pros and cons. Instead, how about a somewhat less dreary history lesson, and some ideas on whether to free ourselves from having to make these decisions? After statehood in 1876, the Colorado Legislature could, with the governor’s assent, amend the Colorado Constitution. That didn’t sit well with some residents of the freshly minted state, so they got together and formed the Colorado Direct Legislation League, led by Dr. Persifor M. Cooke. They lobbied the legislature without effect for 15 years until 1910, when progressive Governor John Shafroth called a special session of the legislature to consider constitutional amendments permitting citizen … [Read more...] about How can we get rid of ballot craziness?
Jacob Laxen Fort Collins Coloradoan Published 11:16 PM EDT Sep 16, 2018 Fort Collins' unique pay-what-you-can restaurant says it might have to close its doors. FoCo Cafe's executive director Mallory Garneau said the nonprofit can last only about another month without additional funds before closing either temporarily or permanently. “It kind of snuck up on us a little bit,” Garneau said. “It has been a tough situation.” The restaurant, 225 Maple St., opened on Thanksgiving Day 2014 and has served about 80,000 meals at lunch six days a week ever since. The nonprofit has also launched summer kids breakfast programs, a year-round water fountain and numerous donation programs. “Losing FoCo Cafe would be a significant loss to the community,” said regular cafe volunteer Sheryl Martin. “It’s not just that we are paying it forward and helping the needy, but there’s an eclectic mixture of people that come here. ... … [Read more...] about Fort Collins’ pay-what-you-can FoCo Cafe says it may have to close
