Formerly serving on the Colorado Court of Appeals, Richard Gabriel will soon be sworn in as Colorado's next State Supreme Court Justice. Justice Gabriel will assume his new role on Sept. 1, which follows the retirement of Justice Gregory Hobbs. Ahead of his appointment, Gabriel sat down for a discussion about view of politics in the judicial process, why he became a lawyer, and some of his significant cases.

City of Greeley

With crude at about $40 a barrel and no oil price recovery in sight, one might expect that Greeley, the town at the center of Colorado’s oil boom, would be seeing a bit of an economic slowdown.

So far, that does not seem to be the case. At least where the housing market is concerned.

On-air challenge: This week's puzzle was inspired by crossword constructor Merl Reagle, who died earlier this month.

One of Merl's most classic crosswords was titled "Anagrammys," in which he took the titles of popular songs and recast them with an anagram of one word. For example, his clue was "Anagrammy-winning poker song?" and the answer was "Dealer of the Pack." Of course, that was a play on "Leader of the Pack," which was a hit for the Shangri-Las in 1964.

There's a song out there right now that's catching a lot of people off guard. "S.O.B" sounds kind of familiar, maybe like a revived oldie, but it's not: It's fresh off the new self-titled album from the Denver ensemble Nathaniel Rateliff & the Night Sweats.

Your home is filled with microbes. Fungi and bacteria cover your appliances, your door handles, and even your skin.

Yet researchers lack understanding as to which species live inside the home and how those species vary between homes. A new study shows that the region where you live shapes what kinds of fungi are in your house. The bacteria, however, are more affected by which pets you live with.

“We live with this broad diversity of different microorganisms in our homes,” says study author Noah Fierer, a researcher at CU Boulder’s Cooperative Institute for Research in Environmental Studies. “Some could be potential allergens, many could actually be beneficial, and most are probably innocuous.”

courtesty of Sony Pictures Classics

It's hard to make a film about sex, because the sight of sex on a movie screen turns human brains to mush. Once naked bodies and stuff like that appear on screen, you've got a sex film more than you've got a film about sex.

Marielle Heller's The Diary of a Teenage Girl shows a lot of sex, and most of it takes place between a girl character who's only 15, and a boy character who's 35. That situation also sets people off.
