Colorado Governor John Hickenlooper wants people to think of his state not just as a haven for legal marijuana and the subject of the best John Denver song, but as a leader in electric vehicle adoption and clean transportation.To accomplish this, he has put forth the Colorado EV Plan, which will serve as a roadmap to widespread electrification.The Colorado EV Plan, which was developed by the Colorado Energy Office, the Regional Air Quality Council, the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment and the Colorado Department of Transportation, outlines several strategies for the state to increase the number of electric vehicles on its roads.The most critical of these would see a dramatic increase in the number of public fast-charging stations, something the Centennial State sorely lacks at the moment.The plan will help bring Colorado in line with the Intermountain West Electric Corridor, which was laid out as part of a memorandum of understanding between Colorado, Idaho, Montana, Nevada, New Mexico, Utah and Wyoming.A portion of the money for the plan will come from the Volkswagen diesel cheating settlement, to which Colorado is entitled $68.7 million.
If you’ve visited Twitch at any point in the last 24 hours, you probably encountered a very strange livestream hosted by Bethesda.Yesterday morning, the company began streaming video of a Vault Boy bobblehead in front of a screen that featured Fallout’s iconic “Please Stand By” alert, managing to keep thousands upon thousands of viewers watching throughout the day and night.Now, many hours later, that livestream has culminated with the reveal of a new game: Fallout 76.We don’t know for sure, as the trailer Bethesda debuted at the end of the livestream amounts to only a teaser.Todd Howard made a brief appearance before the trailer was shown, and he told us that we can expect to hear more during Bethesda’s E3 press conference next month.The teaser trailer, which you can see above, has a lot in common with the teasers for other Bethesda-crafted Fallout games, but Fallout 76‘s title suggests that it won’t be part of the mainline series.
After a teasing Twitch stream which lasted almost an entire day, Bethesda finally revealed the trailer for its latest game: Fallout 76."When the fighting has stopped, and the fallout has settled…"“ Fallout76 – the newest game from Bethesda Game Studios.See more at the BE3 Showcase – June 10th @ 6:30pm PT— Fallout (@Fallout) May 30, 2018With no official word to dispute them, rumors are already circulating about what kind of game Fallout 76 is going to be.
Why on earth would you click on a banner ad promising you one Snickers for the price of two?The real answer is probably just an errant click, or perhaps simple curiosity.But Snickers is convinced that it’s probably a sign you’re too hungry to be making sense.Continuing their longstanding and admirably versatile “You’re Not You When You’re Hungry” campaign, Snickers and agency BBDO New York are circulating a banner ad offering to let you “Get one for the price of two!”Clearly that’s a bad deal, and clicking on the sparks a video message from a comforting life coach who’s frankly worried about why you’d be interested in such an offer.Luckily, after our sweater-wearing, vaguely John Denver-meets-Mark-Hamill interventionist checks in with you, he also offers a slightly better deal: $1 off when you buy two.
Nothing can get people excited about the end of the world quite like the Fallout series, and though Bethesda’s online spinoff Fallout 76 isn’t scheduled to release for a few more months, the game’s official in-game introduction video is available now.For once, it’s a piece of Fallout 76 content that doesn’t include a John Denver song.“War … war never changes,” a political figure says in classic Fallout fashion at the start of the video.“In 1776, this great nation accepted that armed conflict was the only way to preserve our rights to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.”With the threat of nuclear war looming over the world exactly 100 years later, America celebrates the completion of Vault 76.The vault is designed to save its inhabitants from certain death in the face of the apocalypse, but there’s an elitist and almost fascistic quality to the narrator’s words.

Here, we rank the best-selling artists of all time by their number of platinum album certifications.When an artist achieved platinum status back then — selling a million or more physical copies of an album — it took a more fervent effort from fans (who had to drive to record stores, find an album, and hand over their hard-earned cash for it), but many acts nonetheless reached platinum certification routinely.Some of the results here are surprising.Best-selling album: "Slippery When Wet" (12 million copies)Best-selling album:"Unplugged" (10 million copies)Best-selling album: "American Fool" (5 million copies)
Despite 27 different types of trees and an infinite horizon of rolling mountains, dotting the 5th most forested state in the U.S., West Virginia was falling short.Instead of the Mountain State, travelers headed north for the fall foliage of Maine, New Hampshire, and Vermont—despite the fact that West Virginia was closer to fall fanatics from Mid-Atlantic cities like Philadelphia and Washington, D.C.“For years we’ve been underfunded … We haven’t been able to keep up with the advertising in our surrounding states and I think West Virginia is a bit of an unknown,” said Chelsea Ruby, West Virginia’s tourism commissioner.“We are a hidden gem that’s close to everyone on the East coast … it’s just getting them here first.”BVK, a Milwaukee creative agency, came up with a solution: Don’t tell travelers where they’re going.“When you say those two words (West Virginia), some things come to mind that isn’t exactly positive.
 You know the song, ” Almost heaven, West Virginia, Blue Ridge Mountains, Shenandoah River, Life is old there, older than the trees, Younger than the mountains, growin’ like a breeze.” Trouble is John Denver must not have been looking at a map when he penned these words and spread the rhythm of Appalachia far and wide.Sorry John, maybe stick to the Rocky Mountains.Nevertheless, Denver’s tune captures a slice of the place I’ve loved and called home most of my life.The word “Appalachia” is one of the oldest place-names in America.The legends and lore of the deeply furrowed mountains are well known; native Americans subsisting off the bounty of the forest, coon-skinned pioneers pushing west through thick greenery, moonshiners and revenue men in an ever-quickening chase, all taking place before a backdrop of rugged independence and self-reliance.The Shenandoah Valley in particular is where I cut my teeth as an outdoor adventurer and where our story begins.They may not be as rugged and imposing as younger mountains like the Rockies or Alps but their age and wisdom mean that they have had longer to practice resisting mankind’s efforts.In our efforts to tame them cyclists like me have compiled dozens of routes through their ages-old trails and dirt roads.Many of them have legends all their own and have been pushing into my mind more and more as events I had planned make their wise decisions to postpone or cancel this year.
