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.
Balloons Launched For Missing Ohio Children
Nearly 700 balloons in honor of the missing children in Ohio were released today at Columbus Preparatory Academy. Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine attended the balloon launch and says with the discovery recently in Cleveland of 3 missing women; no one can give up hope to find their loved ones.
DeWine released the details of the 2012 Missing Children Clearinghouse annual report that shows more than 19,000 reports of missing children were made last year. Franklin County had the most with nearly 4,000 incidents. Of the total amount, almost 99% were recovered safely.
