During a lull between hailstorms and lightning strikes earlier this month, Patrick Meyer pushed back the hood of his parka and marveled at what will soon be the world's highest operating astronomical observatory. Over the past 25 years, the contractor and amateur astronomer has built million-dollar chalets and remote-controlled airplanes, and all the knowledge garnered from those experiences has gone into the project he calls "the greatest accomplishment of my life."

The human appetite is a fickle thing. It may come on strong if you walk by a hot dog stand but disappear if you spend too much time thinking about the ingredients. Comfort eaters may feel ravenous at the end of a bad day. And people who are bored with what they're eating may feel full (or at least fed up) after just a few bites. At a time when so many people are struggling with their weight, appetite has become a hot topic. Researchers work to understand its ebb and flow, and dieters look for ways to dial it back.

CENTENNIAL, Colo. - The first glimpse of a once-promising career beginning to unravel emerged Thursday during a hearing in the case against James E. Holmes, accused of killing 12 and injuring 58 in a packed movie theater last month. Assistant Dist. Atty. Karen Pearson revealed that 24-year-old Holmes, once a doctoral student in an elite neuroscience program at the University of Colorado Denver, had failed oral exams on June 7, made unspecified threats serious enough for campus police to be notified, and had his access to university buildings on the Anschutz Medical Campus revoked.

CENTENNIAL, Colo. - The University of Colorado-Denver stood firm Friday in saying it never barred James E. Holmes from campus, despite newly released court documents that indicate the suspect in the Aurora movie massacre had his student ID card deactivated after he alarmed a school psychiatrist. Dr. Lynne Fenton told campus police officer Lynn Whitten on June 12 - more than a month before the July 20 rampage that killed 12 and injured 70 - that Holmes had "homicidal thoughts" and might be a danger to the public.

DENVER — In the hours after the Aurora, Colo., movie massacre on July 20, faculty and classmates at suspected gunman James E. Holmes' university were horrified to realize he had once been among them. More than 1,500 emails to and from Holmes were made public Wednesday. The emails — released by the University of Colorado-Denver, where he had been a neuroscience doctoral student — were from Holmes' two university email accounts. An additional 2,300 internal university staff emails surrounding Holmes' alleged attack also were released.
