Snowmass Ski Area condo will be powered by 100% renewable electricity

Developers will soon break ground on a 53-unit condo building at the base of the Snowmass Ski Area that will run entirely on renewable, electric power. It’s the latest example of a growing trend in new construction in a part of Colorado confronted with a changing climate and reliant on snowy winters to power its tourism economy. The forthcoming Electric Pass Lodge takes its name from an actual mountain pass south of Snowmass Village. Its power, meanwhile, will come from a rooftop solar array and other renewable sources of electricity available through local utility Holy Cross Energy, according to developer East West Partners. Building structures to LEED program sustainability standards has become commonplace for East West, said Andy Gunion, the company’s managing partner in the Roaring For

Nuggets point guard Jamal Murray was fined $25,000 following his ejection in the third quarter of Monday night’s game against Dallas, the NBA announced on Wednesday.

Chelsea star Mason Mount will be ‘seething’ with Thomas Tuchel already, claims Rio Ferdinand

Mason Mount was left out by Thomas TUchel (Picture: Getty)Manchester United legend Rio Ferdinand believes Mason Mount will be ‘seething’ with Thomas Tuchel after he was left out of Chelsea’s starting XI to face Wolves. Mount was one of the few players to prosper under Frank Lampard, who brought the midfielder back to Stamford Bridge with him after taking him on loan at Derby County in 2018. The England international had started in each of the last ten matches for the Blues before Lampard’s departure on Monday but he was dropped to the bench as Tuchel named his first starting XI as Blues boss to face Wolves. Tuchel has had just one training session with the group but Ferdinand says Mount will be ‘seething’ that he’s the one to miss out. Tuchel has picked a controversial first...

Google’s push to replace cookies for digital advertising doesn’t protect privacy as much as it boosts Google’s bottom line

Summary List PlacementOn Monday, Google announced that it plans to begin testing out a replacement for third-party cookies with advertisers during the second quarter of this year. The company has been testing what it calls Federated Learning of Cohorts (FLoC) internally and says it's "encouraged by what we've observed and the value that this solution offers to users, publishers and advertisers."   First, it's worth mentioning that users, publishers, and advertisers have very different interests. For example, the conversation about eliminating cookies has largely centered on the privacy implications for users. But Google has a different motivation. More than 80% of its business comes from selling ads. It constitutes over 30% of the digital ad market. Many of those ads depend on cookies. ...

‘Southland Tales’ at 15: An Oral History of the Cannes Cut Nobody Saw Coming

Countless directors have contended with the curse of the sophomore slump, but the saga of “Southland Tales” exists in a category of its own. Five years after his cult hit “Donnie Darko” established the filmmaker’s unique, surrealistic sci-fi voice, the filmmaker’s large-scale follow-up broke all the rules. Maligned at Cannes in 2006 when it premiered in an unfinished version, “Southland Tales” went back to the editing room, lost 20 minutes, and stumbled into theaters later in the year. Now, a new Blu-ray release from Arrow Video has brought the 160-minute Cannes cut to the public for the first time, and with it, an opportunity to fully assess one of the strangest American movies of this young century. An audacious near-future pop fever dream under the guise of blockbuster aesthetics, “Sout

Amber Portwood on Teen Mom Cast: We’re Not Really Friends Anymore!

Remember how all the Teen Mom girls used to be good friends? Yeah, looks like that's not really a thing anymore. For a while there, the entire cast of both shows used to get along -- it's hard to imagine with all the little feuds that have popped up since then, but in the early days, everyone seemed pretty close. In the first few seasons of Teen Mom OG and Teen Mom 2, the whole cast would appear together at reunions and for various promotional events. Slowly, that all started falling apart. Farrah Abraham became enemies with the rest of the OG cast, and Jenelle Evans took that role for Teen Mom 2. But while more issues kept coming for the Teen Mom 2 crew -- the feud between Kailyn Lowry and Briana DeJesus, Chelsea Houska's distancing from everyone -- the OG girls all...

New health restrictions in Santa Clara County that extend beyond the current statewide mandate could deal a fatal blow to the prospect of a spring high-school sports season in the county.
