How icy outer solar system satellites may have formed

Beyond the orbit of the planet Neptune, there are a multitude of icy and rocky small bodies, smaller than planets but larger than comets. These likely formed at the same time as the Solar System, and understanding their origin could provide important clues as to how the entire Solar System originated. Using sophisticated computer simulations and observations of TNOs, astronomers have shown how these so-called trans-Neptunian Objects (or TNOs) may have formed.

WINDSOR —  Marriott International will open its new SpringHill Suites hotel Thursday in Windsor. The 97-suite hotel, located at 6445 Crossroads Blvd., will operate as a Marriott franchise and is owned and managed by Kana Hotel Group of Knoxville, Tennessee, which broke ground on the project in early 2018.

The legislature has guidelines for how the money should be spent, but lawmakers can use it for just about anything they want. And in practice, they do, splitting the money among dozens of different programs, across more than a dozen state agencies.

New York City`s Public Libraries to End Film Streaming Through Kanopy

Public library cardholders in New York City will no longer have access to tens of thousands of movies through Kanopy as of July 1, when the New York, Brooklyn and Queens public libraries end their partnerships with the streaming service because of the cost, the libraries said Monday. From a report: The San Francisco-based platform, which notified library cardholders by email on Monday, offers well-known feature films, like "Lady Bird" and "Moonlight," as well as classic movies, documentaries and foreign-language films not always available on other services. In a statement, the New York Public Library said, "We believe the cost of Kanopy makes it unsustainable," adding that it would use its resources to purchase "more in-demand collections such as books and e-books." The Brooklyn and Queens libraries also cited what they said were Kanopy`s rising costs in dropping the service. About 25,000 people with New York Public Library cards -- about 1 percent of the library`s 2 million cardholders -- used the service in the past year. The New York library -- with branches in Manhattan, the Bronx and Staten Island -- and the Brooklyn Public Library first offered Kanopy in August 2017, and the Queens Library followed several months later.

City Councilor: It`s not honest to say Air Force Academy area is "blighted"

True North Commons Urban Renewal Area, some 88 acres surrounding the entrance to the Air Force Academy, promises to trigger billions of dollars in economic development as well as millions in tax dollars. But one City Councilor asserted the area is far from blighted as required by the state`s urban renewal statute. The economic predictions came from city economic development officer Bob Cope during his pitch at City Council`s June 24 work session where he outlined why the city should allow the developer to use city tax money to develop the project under urban renewal status. The plan, by Blue and Silver Development Partners , calls for building a new visitors center, hotel, retail and office space as part of the city`s City for Champions tourism venture being partially funded with state sales tax rebates. Other projects include a sports medicine venue at the University of Colorado at Colorado Springs, a downtown soccer stadium, a hockey arena on the Colorado College Campus and the Olympic Museum and Hall of Fame under construction in the downtown area. Cope said the city would contribute $23.5 million in tax money to the project but would reap $49.7 million in taxes over a 25-year period.…
