Los Nuggets jugaban su tercer encuentro seguido en casa, y tras el show de Nikola Jokic y ese triple-doble perfecto ante los Suns y luego la muy meritoria victoria sobre los Warriors, tocaba una noche más relajada, pero igualmente triunfante para los chicos de Mike Malone, que celebra cada noche con éxito su extensión de contrato con la franquicia de Colorado. La víctima fueron los Kings (126-112), que solo aguantaron, y más o menos, un cuarto. Luego, la lógica de un equipo que es mucho mejor se impuso y poco a poco los Nuggets fueron abriendo hueco en el marcador. Denver, que llegó a ir ganando hasta por 27 puntos y donde sigue sin debutar Isaiah Thomas, jamás tuvo problemas para sacar adelante un compromiso contra unos Kings que nunca tuvieron la iniciativa. La baja de Will Barton no se notó y hubo buenas noticias como los 15 puntos y 5 rebotes de Paul Millsap, con 6/10 en tiros de campo, los 19 puntos de Jamal Murray o, en general, lo bien rodada que estuvo toda la rotación de Denver, con hasta cuatro suplentes por encima de los 10 puntos. Jokic, esta vez, tuvo una noche normal: 14 puntos, 12 rebotes y 6 asistencias.
Denver's position near the mineral-rich Rocky Mountains encouraged mining and energy companies to spring up in the area. In the early days of the city, gold and silver booms and busts played a large role in the city's economic success. In the 1970s and early 1980s, the energy crisis in America and resulting high oil prices created an energy boom in Denver captured in the soap opera Dynasty. Denver was built up considerably during this time with the construction of many new downtown skyscrapers. When the price of oil dropped from $34 a barrel in 1981 to $9 a barrel in 1986, the Denver economy also dropped, leaving almost 15,000 oil industry workers in the area unemployed (including former mayor and current governor John Hickenlooper, a former geologist), and the nation's highest office vacancy rate (30%). The industry has recovered and the region has 700 employed petroleum engineers. Advances in hydraulic fracturing have made the DJ Basin of Colorado into an accessible and lucrative oil play. Energy and mining are still important in Denver's economy today, with companies such as EnCana, Halliburton, Smith International, Rio Tinto Group, Newmont Mining, Noble Energy, and Anadarko headquartered or having significant operations. Denver is in 149th place in terms of the cost of doing business in the United States.
Denver has hosted the Democratic National Convention twice, in 1908 and again in 2008, taking the opportunity to promote the city's status on the national, political, and socioeconomic stage. On August 10–15, 1993, Denver hosted the Catholic Church's 6th World Youth Day, which was attended by an estimated 500,000, making it the largest gathering in Colorado history.
They have lockers on trian station, no any problem to use it. I don't remember exact cost, but it around 200-300 RUR (3-5 EUR) for a day. Also you can use luggage room on stadium (little bit extream, but comparing with Poland, Brazil or France during the Conf.Cup it works pretty good - no one can't take your bag, and service is very qiuck, I didn't spend more than 20 minutes to take my backpack in all 4 stadiums)
Hollman is proud to have produced lockers integrated into the new scrupulously designed Apple Campus in Cupertino, CA. Coined as the “One Last Thing” Steve Jobs had envisioned prior to his death in 2011, the campus includes a 100,000 square foot Wellness Center with a two-story yoga room dotted with trees, plus an air-conditioning system that sucks outdoor air in to remind employees of the environment outside. In that beautifully designed environment, our Hollman Lockers gleam as brilliantly white as a 2001 iPod. Read the full story
