The Dime Roll: How Restaurants Are Tricking You, Gender-Neutral Bathrooms, and More

March 3, 2017

Whether you live in a large or small community, chances are you've come face-to-face with the sad reality of homelessness. If resorting to one-off handouts isn't cutting it for you anymore, we've got some easy ways to fold those smaller, isolated acts of kindness into a larger, systematic effort that could reach (and impact) a far greater number of people. Plus, did you know that 82% of your fellow Coloradans feel that we're facing a retirement crisis? So says a recent study conducted by the National Institute on Retirement Security (NIRS), which also found that younger Coloradans are more nervous about their future outlook than those closer to retirement. We've got a recap of some of the key findings from NIRS' report, which you can also access on their website here. And, as always, we have some of the best links from around the web (including Merriam-Webster's most searched word of the moment—is it what you expected?).
