To better understand how ransomware works and how it has spread so effectively, The Denver Post talked with Broomfield anti-malware company Webroot, which got its start in the late 1990s cleansing computer viruses from personal computers.

Artificial Intelligence and Criminal Law
At any point in time America has over 700,000 people in jail, drawn disproportionately from low-income and minority groups. We require judges to make decisions about whether to release or jail someone awaiting trial based on a prediction of the defendant’s risk, but to help the judges with this task we give them access to the same technologies

Colorado’s Opioid Crisis Slows, In Part Because Of A Drug That Reverses Overdoses
Standing on Colfax Avenue across from the state Capitol, Vernon Lewis, in a red cap that matches his shirt, describes a near-death event that happened a few months back when a man overdosed near a park bench.
“He was drinking, and I guess he took his medication,” he said. “His medication was Oxy.”

Lewis works at Denver’s Harm Reduction Action Center and has a ready supply of naloxone, the overdose reversal drug that is also known by the brand name Narcan.
