A 47-year-old man accused of fatally shooting three people Wednesday night at a Thornton Walmart had long been under financial strain after running two failed businesses, running up $58,000 in credit card debt and declaring bankruptcy, state and federal records show.

Neighbors at the apartment complex on the 7100 block of Samuel Drive in Denver described Scott Ostrem as "creepy" and unfriendly.

"He made me nervous because he always had rifle in a case over his shoulder," said Teresa Muniz, who lives in the same apartment complex as the suspect.


We collected email communication and meeting schedule data for hundreds of employees in one office, across all levels of seniority, over the course of four months. We then gave 100 of these individuals sociometric badges, which allowed us to track in-person behavior.

We found almost no perceptible differences in the behavior of men and women. Women had the same number of contacts as men, they spent as much time with senior leadership, and they allocated their time similarly to men in the same role. We couldn't see the types of projects they were working on, but we found that men and women had indistinguishable work patterns in the amount of time they spent online, in concentrated work, and in face-to-face conversation. And in performance evaluations men and women received statistically identical scores. This held true for women at each level of seniority. Yet women weren't advancing and men were.

"Let's get back to the basics of being conservative," [Sen. Lindsey] Graham said in a Saturday interview with Breitbart News. "We take the money that we would spend on Obamacare in Washington, and we block grant it to the states." What's new, thanks to the Affordable Care Act, is a discrepancy in state-by-state funding that would be flattened out by the block grants. Most states used the ACA's funding to expand Medicaid; some Republican-run states, liberated by the Supreme Court's decision to make the funding optional, did not. As a result, 14 of the 15 states that would stand to gain from block grants are run by Republicans; Democratic megastates including California, New York and Massachusetts would lose billions of dollars, a feature both Graham and Cassidy have talked up to conservatives.
