The passenger ship Aurora crashed into some rocks and got wrecked just off the shore of an island, causing countless deaths. Leana's Sea Side Inn, located on the nearest beach, was used as headquarters for rescue operations. When the Coast Guard announced that they are concluding their search for missing passengers, relatives requested Leana to search for dead bodies that wash to shore, and they would pay her a hefty amount for each one she found. Out of financial desperation, Leana accepted the grisly task. 2018 is a banner year for Anne Curtis as she had three major film projects which were able to showcase the diverse range of her acting talents, so much more than she had in her whole career it seems. Her roll began in May with the quirky romance in "Sid & Aya (Not a Love Story)" and continued in August with the high-octane action of "Buybust." She concludes her year by dabbling in the horror genre in "Aurora."

The Gaylord Rockies Resort and Convention Center threw open its doors at 12:18 p.m. Tuesday — the 18th day of the 12th month — giving Colorado a Las Vegas scale hotel at 1,501 rooms and Aurora a new place to gather. “This is a place Aurora can call its own,” developer Ira Mitzner, president of RIDA Development Corp., told a crowd gathered at the property near Denver International Airport for a ribbon-cutting ceremony. The $800 million hotel required 10,000 construction workers to build and will employ 1,500 permanent workers to operate. Those workers will receive a “living” wage, along with health insurance benefits and access to a retirement plan, Mitzner promised.

The extra-convenient-convenience-store already serving Denver and Fort Collins will stock more than 2,000 products in an Aurora warehouse — products deliverable to customers in ten local zip codes from noon to 4:30 a.m., seven days a week for a flat delivery charge of $1.95 through the goPuff app. “Our co-founders were college students in Philadelphia who were getting ready for a party,” said Liz Romaine, spokeswoman for goPuff. “Only one person had a car, and they kept making him go out to get things they’d forgotten. They figured, why isn’t someone able to deliver this stuff? The idea took off in their intro to business class, and now we’re in 50 markets.” What … [Read more...] about Late-night delivery service GoPuff targeting college students to open in Aurora
