The Fresh A.I.R. Show: Artists In Recovery is an ongoing project conceived and directed by Michael Hamers. The main message is one of strength, hope and joy that many have discovered through their Artwork and the process of addiction recovery. Our audience will be reached through public art shows, creative performances, and local lectures. The inaugural art show will be showing the entire month of January 2014 at the Firehouse Art Center at 4th and Coffman in Longmont, CO. The Reception Party is on Friday, January 10th from 6–9 pm.
From painting, mixed media, photography, jewelry and more, this mini-show features a group of 10 local artists, most with established reputations, with a passion for life and art. This first show’s theme is “Out of the Black and Into the Blue”, the artistic interpretation of awakening and rebirth – of second chances. The future calendar of Fresh A.I.R. events for 2014-15 is in the planning and will take place in public venues in Boulder County. “Faith is our greatest gift; it’s sharing with others our greatest responsibility.” Come visit with the artists and maybe even take a piece home with you. Mike can be reached at 303-527-1222 and the website is at www.FreshAirShows.com.
Police officers in Boulder recently arrested escaped sex offender Eugene Felix Martinez (DOB 6/22/1965) in connection with a sex assault which occurred in the 700 block of Marine St. on Oct. 19, 2013. Boulder police charged Martinez with Sex Assault, Burglary, Theft and Attempted 2nd Degree Assault on a Police Officer.

Cottonwood Pond Restoration
The restoration work at Cottonwood Pond and along Goose Creek is progressing. This project is a partnership between OSMP and Public Works and is funded by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. Cottonwood Pond, a former gravel pit, will be filled and restored to native wetland and riparian habitat. When completed, Goose Creek will meander through wetland and riparian habitat before reaching Boulder Creek. Of all wetland types, the Front Range has experienced the biggest loss of acreage in the riverine wetland type; this project will also increase riverine wetland habitat. The restoration project will also eliminate the Eurasian water milfoil and curly leaf pondweed, both aggressive non-native aquatic weeds, which currently infest the pond.

Below is a Wikipedia description of the HATE spewed by Tyler..From Wikipedia
Tyler has been criticized for his use of homophobic slurs, in particular, his frequent use of the epithet faggot in his lyrics and on Twitter. He has denied accusations of homophobia, stating, “I’m not homophobic. I just say faggot and use gay as an adjective to describe stupid shit,” and, “I’m not homophobic. I just think faggot hits and hurts people.” However, he later said in an interview with MTV about the slurs, “Well, I have gay fans and they don’t really take it offensive, so I don’t know. If it offends you, it offends you. If you call me a nigga, I really don’t care, but that’s just me, personally. Some people might take it the other way; I personally don’t give a shit.”
Main article: Misogyny in hip hop culture
Tyler has also been criticized for his graphic depictions of violence against women and his misogynistic lyrics. Brent DiCrescenzo of Time Out Chicago writes that rape is a “predominant theme” of Goblin and Hermione Hoby of The Guardian writes that Tyler’s “rape and murder fantasies (are) graphic enough to send the vomit rising along with the bile.” The Fader tallied 68 uses of the term “bitch” over Goblin’s 73 minutes. Responding to Canadian indie pop duo Tegan and Sara’s criticism of his lyrics, Tyler tweeted: “If Tegan and Sara need some hard dick, hit me up!”
On December 22, 2011, Tyler was arrested during a show at the Roxy Theatre in West Hollywood, and charged with “suspicion of vandalism” for alleged destroying of sound equipment belonging to the venue. He was released on $20,000 bail.
In the song “Yonkers,” Tyler disses numerous artists, such as rappers/singers B.o.B and Bruno Mars, and Hayley Williams, frontwoman of band Paramore. Tyler, the Creator also disses Bruno Mars in The Game’s song “Martians vs. Goblins,” in which he and Lil Wayne are featured artists. In response, B.o.B released a similar diss track, entitled “No Future” that also references Tyler’s group, Odd Future. Ironically, Tyler praised the song, and initially did not think it was a diss track. Bruno Mars, in response to the verse “stab Bruno Mars in his goddamn esophagus,” said, “[Tyler] has to wait in line if he wants to stab me…[Tyler's] definitely not the first guy that’s said something like that to me and he’s not going to be the last.” Los Angeles rapper Hopsin also dissed him in his “Ill Mind of Hopsin 4″ music video, released in July 2011. As a response, he was parodied in the “Martians vs. Goblins” music video.
Tyler, The Creator and R&B singer Chris Brown feuded due to claims Brown tweeted on Twitter of Odd Future’s music containing a “demonic” message. Tyler had made several sarcastic remarks via Twitter afterwards, leading to a heated feud between the two musicians. Before a live performance alongside Frank Ocean, Tyler, The Creator called out Chris Brown referring to Brown’s savage beating of fellow musician Rihanna. Afterwards, Brown and Tyler cleared up the feud when Tyler tweeted that he is a fan of Chris Brown’s song “Look At Me Now” featuring Lil Wayne and Busta Rhymes. According to Tyler, The Creator there are things “[his fans] don’t even know” about the feud.
Tyler has also feuded with former collaborator Brandun DeShay. Prior to SXSW 2011, DeShay confronted Tyler through Formspring and said that he was going to “settle this” at SXSW. Tyler has since told fans that the only song they ever collaborated on was “Session”, from Tyler’s debut album Bastard. Tyler re-released the album one year after its initial release, replacing Brandun DeShay’s verse with a new one by Mike G. Tyler has since said that any other song performed by the two of them were created by DeShay, and that he recorded verses over Tyler’s songs without his permission. According to Tyler, DeShay hit him at one point. Tyler also disses DeShay in his song “Yonkers”, by bragging about his own success and publicity.
Through Formspring, Tyler has also said that he does not like Vince Staples, although he praised his rapping abilities. Vince has collaborated with several members of Odd Future, notably Earl Sweatshirt, Mike G, Domo Genesis & The Jet Age of Tomorrow. In 2011, Tyler said that he does not dislike Vince, but he dislikes the fact that people think he is a part of Odd Future when he is not actually in the group.“
wins $2 million NSF grant
The art of origami has inspired children and artists all over the world because of the amazing objects that can be created by folding a simple piece of paper.
Now an engineering research team at the University of Colorado Boulder has won a $2 million grant from the National Science Foundation to develop a light-controlled approach for “self-assembly” mechanisms in advanced devices based on the same principles.
Known as “photo origami,” the idea is supported by NSF’s Emerging Frontiers in Research and Innovation program, which supports interdisciplinary teams working on rapidly advancing frontiers of fundamental engineering research.
CU-Boulder associate professor of mechanical engineering Jerry Qi will lead the team developing the photo origami technique. Collaborators will include CU faculty Robert McLeod of electrical engineering, Kurt Maute of aerospace engineering sciences and Elisabeth “Beth” Stade of mathematics, along with Patrick Mather of Syracuse University.
The ability to transform a flat polymer sheet into a sophisticated, mechanically robust 3-D structure will enable new approaches to manufacturing and design of devices from the microscopic to centimeter scales, according to the team. Examples include using extremely low-weight, high-strength materials to create micro-electromechanical systems with complicated 3-D architectures that can be used for microscopic sensors such as antennas or microphones, and miniature robotic devices for environmental monitoring.
Present barriers to the development of folding and unfolding mechanisms stem from the lack of understanding of scaling laws that allow researchers to generalize results obtained at various size scales, the inability to easily cause matter to “reorient” itself to achieve the desired folding patterns, and challenges in automated, sequential folding.
To overcome these challenges, the CU team will make use of recent fundamental advances in the control of polymer architecture through light-triggered chemical reactions.
“One has to accurately control how much deformation a material should have in order to obtain a precise folding angle and to determine where to fold or stop folding in order to avoid interference in the folding path and form the desired structure,” said McLeod, who will use the interaction of light with material deformation to develop optical waveguide transistors.
In this new form of logic circuit, light triggers the deformation of a soft polymer, which in turn switches the light on or off. In this way, the optical waveguide transistor will enable a structure to be pre-programmed with a folding pattern through a sequential set of switching events controlled by the shape of an origami sheet.
In recent years, CU researchers and their collaborators have made significant progress in using light to control and alter the structure of a polymer. They are able to both bend and stiffen polymer structures and to develop new, soft, shape-memory composite materials through photo-initiation techniques. Shape-memory composites are “smart” materials that have the ability to return from a temporary, deformed shape to their original shape when induced by a trigger.
In addition, the team will work with the local school district to provide research and educational opportunities for K-12 students and teachers.
