    The place of Colorado Springs and Denver : a comparison of Hispanic immigrant experiences by Serafin, Melissa

    No two cities are alike: differences in demographics, such as ethnic populations, socioeconomic class, and population density can have extensive impacts on the city’s character and how citizens experience the area. This study investigates the effect of the different compositions of Colorado Springs and Denver on how the two Hispanic immigrant communities experience the assimilation and integration process. Hispanic immigrants form the largest ethnic communities in both Colorado Springs and Denver, and the two cities differ in several critical measures. Sample subjects were chosen through contacting personal contacts and Hispanic stores, restaurants, organizations, and businesses in Colorado Springs and Denver. The levels of assimilation and acculturation found in Denver participants were higher than those of Colorado Springs participants, and this study connects these differences with each city’s demographics. The higher levels of integration with Denver’s Hispanic community correlates with a larger population, less residential segregation, a larger Spanish-speaking and Latin-Americanborn community, a less conservative population, and more exposure to other ethnicities. Despite the differences, several similarities were found as well, including language-use, the participant’s well-being, aspirations for one’s self or one’s family, one’s perception of their identity, and the importance of family. This study also investigates the significant role of Hispanic shops and restaurants. The composition, characteristics, and demographics of a city can hold huge consequences for a city’s planning projects, economy, development, and, as this study investigates, a city’s character and community structure.

  • Thumbnail for Dynamic pricing of energy and the smartgrid in Colorado
    Dynamic pricing of energy and the smartgrid in Colorado by Osmond, Alex

    Pricing of electricity has caused a disconnect between the consumer and producers. Current methods for pricing electricity are non-inventive and do not reflect the actual costs of production. If producers were capable of monitoring electricity use by the end user, they could potentially assess greater fees associated with consumption during specified periods. To gain access to critical usage information, producers are testing out the theory of a smartgrid. This proposed smartgrid is a system of communicating, actuating and reporting devices that give system operators the capability to observe consumption on a scale unseen before. Price signals from new dynamic pricing plans motivate consumers to change their consumption habits. Producer’s main goal is to slow the growth and intensity of daily and annual “peaks” in energy consumption. By helping to lower peak, consumers have the potential to encounter lower energy bills, more accessible alternatives to carbon based energy and potentially, profit from the sale of electricity back to the grid through smartgrid technologies. This paper uses information from the SmartGridCity project by Xcel Energy in Boulder, Colorado. Raw data from multiple pilot programs in Denver, Colorado, and consumption data from Colorado Springs Utilities is also used. A smartgrid enabled society with access to dynamic electricity rates shows to be a step forward in the solution making processes surrounding the use of energy.

    Brain drain's effect on development : accounts from the Denver Ethiopian diaspora by Wolday, Martha Workneh

    This thesis explores the causes and effects of brain drain on Ethiopia’s development. A snowball sample was taken of participants who self-identified as members of the Ethiopia diaspora in the Denver-metropolitan area (n=8). Data was collected through individual interviews. The interviews were converted into typed transcriptions and synthesized using the grounded theory methodology. The theory proposed is one of struggle through the axial codes that were developed: migration, remittances, communal living, reasons for remaining, reasons for desire to leave, development efforts and transition. The axial codes are assessed in relation to the presented theory of struggle and exploring the effects on Ethiopia’s development. Through this data and analysis, the Ethiopian diaspora has greater access to further understanding their role in development and take actions that have a measurable impact.
