The Biological Sciences Greenhouse at OSU has been fortunate to have multiple bloomings of the Titan Arum, aka, the corpse flower. They have its smaller but also smelly cousin, the Voodoo Lily.

Former Ohio State marketing professor Roger Blackwell reported this afternoon to the federal prison in Morgantown, West Virginia, to begin serving time for insider trading. The 65-year-old Blackwell was sentenced last month to a six-year term for telling friends and family members about a corporate merger. Their subsequent stock trades netted nearly 900-thousand dollars. Meanwhile, the University has not decided what it will do with the campus hotel named for the former professor.
