Buccaneers vs. Broncos score: Tom Brady takes care of business against depleted Denver

Denver business helps gyms rebound with chalk that kills coronavirus

DENVER — Colorful climbing walls and other gym equipment can be difficult to disinfect but that’s where a Colorado company is finding success with a new chalk that kills coronavirus.

Denver-based Friction Labs has been producing climbing chalk for about seven years, but this latest product was born out of necessity.

“So after the pandemic hit pretty much overnight we were down about 70%,” said Keah Kalantari, co-founder of Friction Labs.

When gyms were forced to close in March, sales dropped off and the owners were worried about the future of their business.

“We had the idea for making a hand sanitizer chalk, if that was even possible,” said Kevin Brown, co-owner and CEO.

Friction Labs rolled out a new liquid chalk product that that’s made up of 80% ethanol and although it’s not technically a hand sanitizer, it kills coronavirus. A team of CU Anchutz researchers tested the product

MSU Denver launches Skills Lab in response to job loss, COVID-19 pandemic

Imagine a website specially tailored to the local job market, one that singles out opportunities in growing fields, identifies the required skills — and then offers sessions by university faculty or with industry-supplied software for free.

The staff at Metropolitan State University of Denver did imagine such a service, built it and launched it on the first of September. The program called Skills Lab was designed by MSU Denver’s Innovative and Lifelong Learning office to respond to the job loss and upheaval caused by the coronavirus pandemic.

“The Bureau of Labor Statistics shows Colorado lost 208,000 jobs between February and July, which was a 7.4% drop,” said Terry Bower, associate vice president of the Innovative and Lifelong Learning office. “I pretty much knew I wanted to create some kind of skills offering for the community.”

Bower and her staff studied other job and training websites to help shape their approach.
