Boulder to Ferguson protesters

No Charges for Boulder Killer Cops


As to be expected Boulder DA Stan Garnett did not bring charges against the two Boulder Police officers involved in the shooting of CU student Sam Forgy. Garnett and Boulder police have been silent since the night of the shooting in July. This is usually an indication that the DA will back the Police.

Forgys mother was in shock over the announcement and disappointed.  Garnett did reveal that an assault team of 4 officers entered the apartment complex where Forgy was standing naked on a balcony , screaming, high on acid holding a hammer. The officer had shields and enough power to overwhelm Forgy but decided instead to shoot him dead.

Sam Forgy shot dean by Boulder police

Sam Forgy shot dead by Boulder police

A high level police official told Boulder Channel 1 News “that the officer was new, inexperienced  and he panicked.”

A prominent Boulder Criminal defense lawyer to us, that ” it is typical for the DA to back the police officers in his jurisdiction. He has to work with them. He has to give them the benefit of the doubt. He hopes no one will call him out  on it. If he charged the officers , his career as DA and his political career would be over. This was a political decision not a moral one ”

A local police chief told us; ” police commit a lot of bad shootings. This is one and it should not be swept under the rug… but it has been.”

Another lawyer told us…. “This is a classic wrongful death case “… The family could sue the city of Boulder, the county, the police officers and the DA.  This is a high dollar case too. In the millions of dollars.  The attorneys will sue in civil court and the truth about what happened that night will come out. The lawyers will put the officers and the DA on the stand. It won’t be pretty. I would say the city will have to settle this for 5 to 15 million dollars before it goes to court.” The city and county do not want a case like this in court.”

Boulder Channel 1 news has learned “that a team of high profile attorneys and investigators have been working on this case at the behest of the family since the day after the shooting.”

Globalization is often described as "glories and advantages" of modern world, but often technologies bring I to contact cultures that don't yet know how to interact with each other. However, communication doesn't = understanding and understanding doesn't = agreement. Paradox that just by communicating and understanding, we won't necessarily "just all get along."[READ|SHARE]

Conference on World Affairs online problems : Twitter let down Grays attend

The one saving grace of this panel was to point out just what a waste of a persons life it can be. they couldn't stress how addictive Twitter and Facebook could be. The tone of this session was politically leftist with continuous barbs thrown at conservatives who use twitter. So much for CU chancellors new policy of fair and balanced. All of the panelists criticized main stream media for not covering the news. None of them could explain the business side of Twitter.

Startup Boulder week 2014: reflection


We at Boulder Channel 1 Employ 8 full time / part time people. Four of whom are in sales. They sit on the phones and or go to

selling ads on the phone and on the streets.

selling ads on the phone and on the streets.

see Boulder retailers and sell advertising.  They come from a group known as pitchmen (women). They hit the streets and talk to Boulder about our company and our ad packages. A typical package includes a video profile of their goods for a given season. We invented this here in Boulder and have created over 1000 business profiles since 1987. We also produce banner ads on our site only. We run Social media campaigns for customers and do PR too. Then we design and build websites for our advertising customers. We do promotions for them and we run focused ad campaigns on other platforms. We also do local appearances and remote broadcasts for advertisers where we come to a car dealership and broadcast live on a Saturday during a big sale. Or we will go to a restaurant and broadcast live and talk about the food , interview the chefs and owners.

We are both traditional Television and new media with a news and production department. So what does this have to do with Boulder Startup week 2014 ?? Absolutely, nothing except it gives us a chance to pitch Boulder Channel 1 and tell you about us and why you should use us.

bestofboulderReason number 1 is that we are not minimalists. We are maximists  we don’t lie to you. If you are going to spend your money with us here in Boulder we feel it is our responsibility to you and your retail operation that you get immediate response from advertising with us. If you don’t then fire us.

Reason Number 2 we are Boulder. we are from Boulder. We didn’t just move here and set up shop.  We have been in business since 1975. Most of our customers are our friends from years of relationships or they become our friends.

Reason Number 3  We are on TV every day and night of the week on Comcast BV-22 which plays to 250,000 subscribers all over Boulder County.  They include houses, apartments, businesses and CU dorm rooms. We are also on the net right here.

Reason Number 4  We are the voice of Boulder. We show all points of view and ask the tough questions. One tough question we have for StartUp Boulder is who are you and what do you stand for ?

We know that is is organized by a hippie homeless guy who calls himself a vagabond. We know a group of so called investors from Boulders App world get together  drink beer, have chair races and party day and night call themselves the community. But are they trustworthy ?? Are they really from Boulder or are they former college students cycling through our city playing at business??  They all seem to be new here without jobs living off of mom and dad. And that is part of the Boulder Story too.

Manning Passes to Elementary Students



denver broncosAfter working out with his teammates as part of phase one of the Broncos’ voluntary offseason conditioning program, quarterback Peyton Manning loosened up his arm with a few passes in the afternoon.

However, it wasn’t Demaryius Thomas, Wes Welker, Emmanuel Sanders or Andre Caldwell catching passes from the future Hall-of-Fame quarterback.

It was students at Hallett Elementary School in Denver that had the opportunity to have Manning as their all-time quarterback in gym class on Tuesday.

Manning surprised the students with a visit to promote healthy and active lifestyles. Manning was part of the Playworks organization’s initiative to get kids up and moving around during the day.

Playworks Colorado, which began in 2010, currently serves 5,500 students in 18 low-income schools in Denver, Aurora and Northglenn.

The students were split into four groups that rotated through various activity stations. Manning quarterbacked the gym station where one student would line up on defense and one at wide receiver. Manning would huddle with each route-runner and then throw a pass to the student with another student defending.

CU develops solar toilet for third world use


Innovative solar-powered toilet developed
by CU-Boulder ready for India unveiling

A revolutionary University of Colorado Boulder toilet fueled by the sun that is being developed to help some of the 2.5 billion people around the world lacking safe and sustainable sanitation will be unveiled in India this month.

The self-contained, waterless toilet, designed and built using a $777,000 grant from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, has the capability of heating human waste to a high enough temperature to sterilize human waste and create biochar, a highly porous charcoal, said project principal investigator Karl Linden, professor of environmental engineering. The biochar has a one-two punch in that it can be used to both increase crop yields and sequester carbon dioxide, a greenhouse gas.

The project is part of the Gates Foundation’s “Reinvent the Toilet Challenge,” an effort to develop a next-generation toilet that can be used to disinfect liquid and solid waste while generating useful end products, both in developing and developed nations, said Linden. Since the 2012 grant, Linden and his CU-Boulder team have received an additional $1 million from the Gates Foundation for the project, which includes a team of more than a dozen faculty, research professionals and students, many working full time on the effort.

Sol-Char Toilet 2014

According to the Gates Foundation, the awards recognize researchers who are developing ways to manage human waste that will help improve the health and lives of people around the world. Unsafe methods to capture and treat human waste result in serious health problems and death – food and water tainted with pathogens from fecal matter results in the deaths of roughly 700,000 children each year.

Linden’s team is one of 16 around the world funded by the Gates “Reinvent the Toilet Challenge” since 2011. All have shipped their inventions to Delhi, where they will be on display March 20-22 for scientists, engineers and dignitaries. Other institutional winners of the grants range from Caltech to Delft University of Technology in the Netherlands and the National University of Singapore.

The CU-Boulder invention consists of eight parabolic mirrors that focus concentrated sunlight to a spot no larger than a postage stamp on a quartz-glass rod connected to eight bundles of fiber-optic cables, each consisting of thousands of intertwined, fused fibers, said Linden.  The energy generated by the sun and transferred to the fiber-optic cable system — similar in some ways to a data transmission line — can heat up the reaction chamber to over 600 degrees Fahrenheit to treat the waste material, disinfect pathogens in both feces and urine, and produce char.

“Biochar is a valuable material,” said Linden. “It has good water holding capacity and it can be used in agricultural areas to hold in nutrients and bring more stability to the soils.” A soil mixture containing 10 percent biochar can hold up to 50 percent more water and increase the availability of plant nutrients, he said. Additionally, the biochar can be burned as charcoal and provides energy comparable to that of commercial charcoal.

Linden is working closely with project co-investigators Professor R. Scott Summers of environmental engineering and Professor Alan Weimer chemical and biological engineering and a team of postdoctoral fellows, professionals, graduate students, undergraduates and a high school student.

“We are doing something that has never been done before,” said Linden. “While the idea of concentrating solar energy is not new, transmitting it flexibly to a customizable location via fiber-optic cables is the really unique aspect of this project.” The interdisciplinary project requires chemical engineers for heat transfer and solar energy work, environmental engineers for waste treatment and stabilization, mechanical engineers to build actuators and moving parts and electrical engineers to design control systems, Linden said.

Tests have shown that each of the eight fiber-optic cables can produce between 80 and 90 watts of energy, meaning the whole system can deliver up to 700 watts of energy into the reaction chamber, said Linden. In late December, tests at CU-Boulder showed the solar energy directed into the reaction chamber could easily boil water and effectively carbonize solid waste.

While the current toilet has been created to serve four to six people a day, a larger facility that could serve several households simultaneously is under design with the target of meeting a cost level of five cents a day per user set by the Gates Foundation. “We are continuously looking for ways to improve efficiency and lower costs,” he said.

“The great thing about the Gates Foundation is that they provide all of the teams with the resources they need,” Linden said. “The foundation is not looking for one toilet and one solution from one team. They are nurturing unique ideas and looking at what the individual teams bring overall to the knowledge base.”

Linden, who called the 16 teams a “family of researchers,” said the foundation has funded trips for CU-Boulder team members to collaborate with the other institutions in places like Switzerland, South Africa and North Carolina. “Instead of sink or swim funding, they want every team to succeed. In some ways we are like a small startup company, and it’s unlike any other project I have worked on during my career,” he said.

CU-Boulder team member Elizabeth Travis from Parker, Colo., who is working toward a master’s degree in the engineering college’s Mortenson Center in Engineering for Developing Communities, said her interest in water and hygiene made the Reinvent the Toilet project a good fit. “It is a really cool research project and a great team,” she said. “Everyone is very creative, patient and supportive, and there is a lot of innovation. It is exciting to learn from all of the team members.”

“We have a lot of excitement and energy on our team, and the Gates Foundation values that,” Linden said.  “It is one thing to do research, another to screw on nuts and bolts and make something that can make a difference. To me, that’s the fun part, and the project is a nice fit for CU-Boulder because we have a high interest in developing countries and expertise in all of the renewable energy technologies as well as sanitation.”

The CU-Boulder team is now applying for phase two of the Gates Foundation Reinvent the Toilet grant to develop a field-worthy system to deploy in a developing country based on their current design, and assess other technologies that may enhance the toilet system, including the use of high-temperature fluids that can collect, retain and deliver heat.



Boulder police: Serial bike theft suspect arrested


Suspect faces dozens of felony charges in bike theft series


Boulder Police detectives have been investigating a series of thefts of high-end bicycles from the downtown area and today, March 10, 2014, formally arrested the suspect, John William Samson III (DOB 10/04/1975). Samson was arrested at the Boulder County Jail, where he has been incarcerated on separate charges.


Samson faces 34 counts of Theft, one count of Third Degree Burglary, one count of Criminal Trespass and one count of Criminal Mischief. Twenty-nine of the charges are felonies.

bike thefts


Investigators believe Samson is responsible for the thefts of 43 bicycles from May 2013 until September 2013. The bikes are worth a total of approximately $147,000.00. The bicycles range in price from $700.00 to $9,000.00 each.


The majority of the thefts took place in the downtown business area during daylight hours. Most of the bikes were locked, either to bike racks or on vehicle racks. None of the stolen bikes have been recovered, and they have not shown up in area pawn shops.


Several bicycles were stolen from the campus of Boulder High School, including five bikes belonging to the Boulder High School’s mountain bike team. Those bicycles had been stored in a locked trailer and were taken during the Boulder flood.


Victims include local residents, people travelling through Colorado on vacation and at least one victim who had driven to Boulder for a bike competition, only to find his bicycle stolen the day before he was to compete. Victims are juveniles, students, professionals, a professor and an out-of-state fire fighter.


Brands of the stolen bikes include: Yeti, Santa Cruz, Transition, Titus, Felt, Scott, Specialized, Kona, Gary Fisher, Trek and Klein.


Samson is currently in jail, and his bond has been set at $100,000.00. Detectives are continuing to investigate.


The Boulder Police Department has been working in partnership with the Colorado Department of Corrections, which provided critical information and timely assistance during our investigation.


Anyone with information about these thefts is asked to contact Detective Craig Beckjord at 303-441-3336. Those who have information but wish to remain anonymous may contact the Northern Colorado Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477) or 1-800-444-3776.
