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.
Panel: Restrict Access To Ohio Face-Check Software
A state report is recommending restrictions on the use of Ohio’s facial recognition technology, which can identify suspects through possible matches with drivers’ license photos.
The report from a committee convened by Attorney General Mike DeWine recommends that non-law enforcement personnel obtain written permission from the head of Ohio’s criminal investigations agency before gaining access to the technology.
The report released Friday also recommends promoting the value of the technology to the public, such as its use cracking down on identity theft.
The committee said DeWine’s office should create a policy to determine how long records in the Ohio Law Enforcement Gateway are maintained. The panel also wants to see mandatory and standardized training for users of the gateway database.
