Best hikes near the Rocky Mountains

Spring is upon us. The Rocky Mountains and its sub-ranges are beginning to shed snow, colorful wildflowers are in bloom, and hiking trails that have been accessible only to cross-country skis and fat bikes for the past few months are opening up to eager hikers. Spring hiking focuses more on canyons than scrambles and meadows than summits, and these five towns are the place to base yourself for epic spring hikes throughout the Rocky Mountain region.

Why We Dance: An Animated Video Explains the Science Behind Why We Bust a Move

Has any culture, apart from that of the tiny Utah town in Footloose, done entirely without dancing? It would at first seem that any human need the rhythmic shaking of one's limbs to organized sound fulfills must reside pretty low on the overall priority scale, but anthropology tells us that various human societies started dancing before they got into most every other activity that fills their time today. "Why is this ostensibly frivolous act so fundamental to being human?" asks the Aeon vid...

GOP Senators Push Back Against Trump’s Relentless McCain Attacks

WASHINGTON (AP) — Casting aside rare censure from Republican lawmakers, President Donald Trump aimed new blasts of invective at the late John McCain , even claiming credit for the senator’s moving Washington funeral and complaining he was never properly thanked. By the time the president began his anti-McCain tirade in Ohio on Wednesday, several leading Republicans had signaled a new willingness to defy Trump by defending the Vietnam War veteran as a hero seven months after he died of brain c...

VMware CEO says Cisco's networking software is like 'a bicycle' compared to his 'Lamborghini' as they fight for cloud dominance (VMW, CSCO, AMZN)

VMware and Cisco's rivalry is as fierce as ever, as both companies fight to stay relevant while their customers ditch old-fashioned tech for the cloud. VMware CEO Pat Gelsinger couldn't help but throw some shade at Cisco in a recent interview, calling its software a "bicycle" compared to VMware's "lamborghini."  Years ago, VMware and its then-parent company EMC were best buddies with Cisco. They even sold their products together in a joint venture that did about $2 billion a year, we reported...

Best dog sledding in Park City, Utah

Cradling an 80-pound Alaskan husky like a baby, an impassioned Fernando Ramirez traces his intense bond with his dogs back to his childhood.

Words by: Amy David Starting as the Mentee In 2010 I moved to Salt Lake City to attend and chose the Utah mountains with the specific intention of pursuing a career in the ski industry. My high school coach told me if I wanted to become a professional skier, I needed to continue my academic education, get a pass to and be able to ski every line at the resort.

Report: Timberwolves fan called Blake Griffin 'boy'

Why even a limited federal paid family leave program would quickly unravel

Republicans are jumping on the paid family leave bandwagon. Last Tuesday, Sens. Mike Lee, R-Utah, and Joni Ernst, R-Iowa, introduced the CRADLE Act to let workers tap Social Security for paid family leave. The day before that, President Trump proposed a 6-week federal paid family leave program and a one-time, $1 billion fund to help private employers set up paid family leave programs in his FY 2020 budget. These proposals contrast with liberals’ predominant proposal—the Family Act—which would es...

Trump’s views about ‘crazy’ self-driving cars are at odds with his DOT

President Donald Trump is an automated-vehicle skeptic, a point of view that lies in stark contrast with agencies within his own administration, including the U.S. Department of Transportation . According to a recent scoop by Axios, Trump has privately said he thinks the autonomous-vehicle revolution is “crazy.” Trump’s point of view isn’t exactly surprising.
