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.
Statewide Texting Ban, Teen Rules Sent To Governor Kasich
Ohio teens could not use cellphones or other electronic devices while driving under a bill sent Tuesday to the governor.
The House voted 82-12 to pass the bill. The Senate previously approved it, and Gov. John Kasich is expected to sign it.
All drivers would be banned from texting, though young drivers could more easily be pulled over for it.
The bill would make texting a secondary offense for adults. That means drivers could be ticketed for typing messages only if they were first pulled over for another offense, such as running a red light.
According to the Governors Highway Safety Association, the measure would be among the nation’s broadest in terms of teen distracted driving restrictions. The organization says texting while driving is already prohibited in 38 states.
