When floodwaters inundated parts of the City of Evans Sept. 13, 2013, homes were damaged or destroyed, roads were made impassable and the city’s main wastewater treatment plant was heavily damaged. 11 months on, the city has greatly recovered, but there’s still work to do.
Denver’s recently reopened Union Station joins other stations across the country including Saint Paul and Kansas City that are changing the landscape of city centers. It’s not because you can catch a ride on the rails, but because people are moving back to the city.

The pipeline tool known as a pig is versatile. In the 1971 James Bond film Diamonds Are Forever, Bond used a pig to blow up a pipeline. In 1987’s The Living Daylights, defecting Soviet spy Georgi Koskov used a pig as an escape route. Again in 1999’s The World Is Not Enough, a pig was used to smuggle a nuclear weapon.
Pigs aren't just excellent James Bond plot devices, they also have practical applications.
