Mayor Hancock Promises the People of Denver Better Safety

DENVER, CO - An increase in violent crime numbers after the pandemic is an emerging crisis in cities across the country. In Denver, the difficulty is tied by the fact that violent offenders are released too quickly, increasingly putting pressure into people's mental health and behavioral well-being, and youth violence. Mayor Hancock calls for a balance between reform that discourages low-level violent people from going to jail in the first place and the safety of Denver’s residents.

7 Websites to Find Stock Photos If You're Ready to Pay for Them

Before I start singing the praises of these other stock photo sites which require payment of some kind, I must admit that free websites like Unsplash, Pexels, and Pixabay are an amazing resource. I've seen images that rival the kinds one can find on premium sites.

So once an image is overused, readers will just scan over the piece, thinking they read it before.Though I still use Unsplash, I usually will take time to go through several images before picking. Now, I tend to get my photos from other places. I've tried several sites (and recommended others do the same) to find which works for me. Because most are not yearly commitments it's been easy to wade through their selection to discover which was perfect for my needs.
