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 Unveils New Bike Share Program
The city of Columbus has a new bike share program.
It’s called “CoGo” and is modeled after similar programs in other cities. Columbus officials call it a green and affordable way for visitors making short stops around downtown. Riders can sign up for an annual membership of $75, or rent and return a bike at any of the 30 downtown stations for $6 a day.
The program requires riders to wear a helmet and use arm signals when making turns.
Some downtown hotels say they’ll make free helmets available to guests, and at least two bike shops will offer customer discounts to CoGo members.
