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.

Black and brownouts have been reported along areas of the East Coast. As people there adjust to 100-degree temperatures, there’s a demand for electricity that has surpassed the region’s supply.
American Electric Power spokesperson Melissa McHenry says Ohio and the Midwest won’t face the same energy crisis this summer.
“We’re comfortable we can handle excessive temperatures, as long as there isn’t another issue that comes along,” McHenry says.
