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.
Columbus Man Pleads Guilty To Threatening The President
A Columbus man accused of posting Twitter threats against president Barack Obama today entered a plea in federal court in Columbus.
36 year old Daniel Temple of Columbus pleaded guilty to one count threatening the president. The secret service brought the case after it discovered tweets from two different computer addresses in Central Ohio that indicated the sender intended to kill the president.
Testimony in an earlier court hearing indicated Temple experienced hallucinations and he was ordered to undergo psychiatric treatment.
Temple now faces a sentence ranging from probation to five years in federal prison. He free on recognizance bond while the court conducts a pre-sentence investigation. Court spokesman Fred Alverson says that could take between 30 and 60 days.
