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 Officials Keep Eye On Federal Money Talks
The state’s budget director says the tax increases are a greater concern to him, because of the potential they have to send the nation into an economic recession.
Tim Keen says if the country plunges over the so-called “fiscal cliff,” Ohio could find itself facing budget challenges as residents lose jobs and spend less money.
Keen said he’s not following every development in the ongoing talks between President Barack Obama and House Speaker John Boehner of Ohio. But he said he’s trying to take their impact into consideration while writing Ohio’s two-year spending plan.
Gov. John Kasich will release his budget in February.
