Feature: Florists aim to boost business during flowers fair in Damascus - Xinhua | English.news.cn - Xinhua
Iraqi and Lebanese florists also took part in the fair which opens its doors for foreigners and Arabs.
It's the second year that the fair takes place during the crisis, which, like many other activities, came to a halt as a result of the deteriorating situation after the beginning of the 2011 crisis.
However, after the departure of the rebels from eastern Damascus and the military operation to secure the vicinity of the capital, the fair, and other exhibitions and activities returned to Damascus.
At one corner in the Tishreen Park, Bashar Qatil coordinated a number of plants with names on them.
"Our participation is special and our prices are symbolic. We have more than 50 types and our focus is on the medical and aromatic plants," Qatil, owner of a plantation in Hama city, told Xinhua.
He said that their participation is special this year after they managed to strike deals with Iraqi merchants last year, hoping that he could boost his business through foreign contracts.
"Our benefit from the fair is that we showcase our products to foreign companies taking part in the fair and we could strike deals with them," he said.
Fahed Muhammad, another florist, said that the participation of Iraqi and Lebanese florists in the fair also helps the local ones to learn new things and enhance their relations with foreign markets to export the Syrian medical and aromatic herbs.

Other Men's Flowers: An Unexpected Education - News - Canton Daily Ledger
Stadium Club. We had avoided the ticket gate, a security check point and the stadium club maître d. It was comparable to going from the dungeon of the THS biology room to the typing/computer room and back, without a hall pass.
I’m aware of another THS alum that watched the “sold out” NCAA Final Four in Indianapolis without the benefit of a ticket or pass. Again, the individual had identified an opening in a “lock tight” building to secure his entrance. One isn’t born with that ability. It comes only through the daily practice of having attended THS.
Finally, yet another THS alum displayed his navigational prowess in driving his family onto the grounds of a working military base, by finding an unmanned, open gate. After several minutes of a self-guided tour, the family and their car was surrounded by armed military vehicles. Professing innocence and naïveté, the alum won over the soldiers and was treated to participation in a live ammo display by the army personnel. That type of thing doesn’t happen to people who attended school in a sterile box structure.
Just as a church doesn’t completely identify a community of faith, one particular building doesn’t identify a community of excellence. The end of the THS building doesn’t take away the ideals created in the responsible citizens that have graduated from there. It doesn’t diminish the community’s reputation for coming together to celebrate historic milestones, or raising incredible sums of money for a family in need. The same passions that have fueled both sides of the THS debate drive the spirit of a community with incredible accomplishments and a purposeful sense of responsibility. While I’m happy I got to enjoy the unique aspects of the THS structure, I’m most proud of the foundations that the school and community instilled in my life.
And maybe, any upcoming designs might include a few secret passageways so future alums have all the benefits of a Teutopolis education as they navigate their own way through life.

Holland's Keukenhof Gardens—the Largest Flower Garden in the World—Is the Perfect Spring Destination - Mental Floss
Dubai. The ultra-modern city prides itself on going big with everything it does.In addition to being the largest and most populous city in the United Arab Emirates (UAE), Dubai is also home to the world’s tallest building, the Burj Khalifa, which cemented its place in skyscraper history earlier this week when it welcomed Ghidorah, Mothra, Rodan, and Godzilla—the titans of the latest Godzilla installment, Godzilla: King of the Monsters.
Here are nine things you might not know about this massive structure.
1. The Burj Khalifa is twice as tall as the Empire State Building.
Standing approximately 2716.5 feet tall, the Burj Khalifa snatched the title of “world’s tallest building” from Taipei’s Taipei 101, which held the record from 2004 to 2010 with a height of 1667 feet. While several other massive structures have been built since then, none has managed to top the Dubai landmark. Taipei 101, meanwhile, now ranks as the 10th tallest building in the world.
2. It took five years to build the Burj Khalifa.
Building the Burj Khalifa was a massive endeavor that, at its peak, required the assistance of approximately 12,000 workers per day. Which helps explain how the ambitious structure was completed in a rather short amo... Apr 27, 2019
On Gardening | Chilean flora can be challenging, but rewarding - Santa Cruz Sentinel
Central Chile’s summer-dry region extends from about 30 degrees to about 36 degrees south, making that region comparable in size to that of California, which extends from about 32 degrees to about 42 degrees north.
With only a little searching, a gardener can find good plants from the first four of these regions; finding Chilean plants can be challenging. That search can be motivated by the potential of discovering unusual botanical treasures.
Cantua buxifolia – blossom cluster. (Tom Karwin — Sentinel correspondent)
A few Chilean plants are readily available in garden centers. The most familiar example, perhaps, is the so-called Peruvian Lily (Alstromeria sp.). There are some 122 species within this South American genus, and only four are native to Peru, while at least thirty-three are native to central Chile, which is the center of distribution for this genus. We’re told that Chileans take offense at having their plant called Peruvian Lily!
Other Chilean plants that are not hard to find include (in no particular order): Chilean Jasmine (Mandevilla laxa), Chilean Guava (Ugni molinae), Chilean Puya (Puya chilensis), Shining Pink Rock Purslane (Calendrina spectabilis), Maiden’s Wreath (Francoa sonchifolia), Hummingbird Fuchsia (Fuchsia magellanica), Purpletop Vervain (Verbena bonariensis), Chilean Potato Vine (Solanum Crispum), and others.
Interested gardeners can find descriptions of these plants by searching the Internet for their botanical names.
A less common Chilean plant that is particularly attractive in early spring, is the Sacred Flower of the Andes (Cantua buxifolia). This is an upright shrub that produces “a profusion of orange to magenta-pink flowers that have a long tube with a flaring mouth held on thin pedicels so the flowers dangle beneath” (quoting San Marcos Growers). The blossoms are “outrageous,” but the plant sprawls in a way that calls for staking. The older stems can be pruned to improve the plant’s overall form, but because blossoms are ...
