Shocking tests

Colorado will be testing out a new scheme for generating power using runoff water from flood irrigation. The cost: $235 million. Via The Denver Post.

Compassion fatigue

The massive Christian nonprofit Compassion International just announced it’s laying off 5 percent of its workforce despite a growth in revenue, reports The Gazette.

Ask me

Autism activist and animal scientist Temple Grandin won Colorado State University a webby award for her Ask Me Anything session on Reddit. Via Westword.

Something stinks

Toxic, burning, metallic smells wafted through the air near Whitewater, reports The Grand Junction Sentinel. The culprit: a waste pit at the Deer Creek Wastewater Disposal Facility.
