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. From its bruise-colored bloom that resembles a corpse, to its stench of rotting flesh, this tropical flower masks its beauty to attract its pollinators.

Ohio’s upcoming two-year state budget is being described as “tight” by Republicans and Democrats alike. But that’s not stopping advocates for social welfare programs from asking legislators for more government dollars.
The Ohio State University recently released a study about hand washing dishes and eating utensils in restaurants. The research spawned from a Federal Food and Drug Administration study that said most regulation problems in restaurants had to do with the level of bacteria on dishware. OSU’s study looked at dishwashing conditions like the water’s temperature and how long food was left to dry on plates and utensils. But some think this kind of study is a poor use of federal money.
