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 Gov Signs Bill To Curb Ex-Inmate Hardships
Ohio Gov. John Kasich has signed 13 bills, including one to ease ex-inmates back into the workforce as cosmetologists, salvage-yard dealers and construction workers.
The measure aims to reduce employment or professional hardships brought about by a person’s conviction or decision to plead guilty to a crime. Ex-offenders could get a state certificate of employment or professional licensure lifting certain bars on employment.
Kasich signed the bills in private on Tuesday. One bill would bar people from altering a vehicle to create or add a hidden compartment.
Another measure would require scrap metal dealers to take a photograph of anyone who sells them scrap. A separate bill also renames the Department of Development as the Development Services Agency.
