Six states have already banned powdered alcohol and the creator of the powder is rushing to get it on the shelves in remaining states. Critics are concerned people will snort the powder and that drinks might be spiked easier.

The Ellen Show
Local teacher reminds us how kind our city can be
By Amelia Olson [ Mon Mar 23 2015 2:32 PM ]
It’s sometimes difficult to remember the rays of sunlight that inhabit our city. With tension surrounding our police force and homeless communities, Albuquerque can get caught up in the things we want to improve and lose sight of the people who are giving their hearts and souls to our beautiful city every single day to make it a better place. Local schoolteacher Sonya Romero is just one example of the kindness Burque folks possess, and thanks to her appearance on the Ellen DeGeneres show, a local school is getting some much needed TLC.

The Daily Word in voting, cruelty and Gareth Pugh
By Samantha Anne Carrillo [ Thu Oct 30 2014 11:37 AM ]
It's time to rock the Bernalillo County vote, y'all. Peruse the 2014 Alibi Election Guide to learn more about key races and for translations of ballot-speak on advisory questions and constitutional amendments. Contrary to propaganda that voting doesn't matter, it totally does. And local and state elections are a way to make a real positive impact on our community. And you know you want a sticker. So vote early through Saturday, Nov. 1, or rock the ballot on Election Day proper.
Burque is one of only two cities nationwide recognized as an Urban Bird Treaty City, y'all. Translation: Our burg is for the birds ... in a good way.
A motion to dismiss charges against three teens charged with beating two Native homeless men to death in the South Valley was denied.
A man suspected of committing a string of home invasions of elderly women in southeast Albuquerque was arrested by SWAT.
A deer jumped in front of a motorcycle. The bike is totaled, the deer is dead and the biker? He's fine ... and headed back to work as a zookeeper.
Chronic fatigue syndrome patients, it's all in your head ... specifically your brain.
I'm not a huge fan of the fashion-industrial complex. But Gareth Pugh's Spring 2015 Read-to-Wear line is blowing my occult-obsessed mind ATM. Get your costume inspiration on, y'all.
