Dr. Emery Deserves All the Flowers While She Can Smell Them - Afro American
She attended what was then Morgan State College where she earned a master's degree in education and she attended Temple University in Philadelphia and was awarded a doctorate degree in education. Her list of accomplishments and contributions to the Greater Baltimore community is too long to list here; that is why a veritable who's who (including Mayor Pugh, Rev. Dr. A.C.D. Vaughn and AFRO Publisher Emeritus Jake Oliver, among many others) of our city stopped by the Forum to give bouquets of flowers to Dr. Emery while she can smell them. These are the objective facts.
However, my objectivity ends as far as Dr. Emery is concerned when it comes to her work as principal of Walbrook High School in West Baltimore.

Dr. Emery was a vice-principal of Lemmel Junior High just up the street from where I was raised. But, Walbrook was the house that Dr. Emery built and that school changed my life. I entered Walbrook in the 10th grade in 1980. For the record, Dr. Emery had officially left the school as principal the previous year, but clearly she had laid an incredible foundation prior to her exit and she left an outstanding high school in her wake.
My sister and I had moved back into the city from Baltimore County with our father, the summer before my sophomore year; I had struggled some academically in the ninth grade; it was a tumultuous time for me. My dad actually gave me the option of attending prestigious Cardinal Gibbons High School or Walbrook and I chose Walbrook. It was probably the most astute choice I've ever made. At Walbrook, I was a member of the... Nov 28, 2018

Aussies flock to smell super rare death flower
A GIANT and rare tropical flower has bloomed in the Adelaide Botanical Gardens.
The plant emits a strong and lingering odour, similar to that of decaying meat.
Because the petals and stamen are redolent of death, the flower is affectionately dubbed "the corpse flower".
Standing somewhere between three to four and a half metres, the corpse flower has a frilly black skirt of thick, flesh like dark petals.
The spooky flower has bloomed just ahead of Halloween.

Australia's collection of corpse flowers is leading the world, according to Environment Minister David Speirs, who said the herbarium at Adelaide's Botanic Garden is leading research into this mysterious and endangered giant flower.
The spooky dark petals of a corpse flower before it opens, which produces it's own heat.
"From just three initial seeds, the garden's collection has grown to one of the largest in Australian and one of the most significant in the world," he said. Oct 26, 2018

In spring, before new growth begins, prune vigorously, removing thin, weak canes and reducing height to 12 inches or less.Modern roses bloom best on vigorous new growth stimulated by pruning, rather than old, woody canes allowed to remain.

Narcotics professor, florist found faith
I waited a lifetime to
get to where I am." Sale grew up in Philadelphia and has one
younger brother, Robbie. They were baptized in the Lutheran faith, but as she
grew up, Sale said she never connected with one particular Christian
denomination. She earned a degree in nursing in 1979 and started work at Prince
George's Hospital Center in Cheverly in the intensive care nursery, often caring
for drug-addicted infants. She also cared for addicted mothers who were
encouraged to abort. "I said, ‘Why are you making these women feel so bad?' If
we want them to stop using drugs, then don't make them feel bad - lift them up."
Sale loved the work, but after a while was laid off. Her friend encouraged her to work with
detoxing adults at Fairfax Hospital. She told her friend, "I work with babies;
I don't know how to work with adults.' She said, ‘Same thing, they just talk.'
" So Sale became licensed through the state as a substance abuse treatment
provider. As her interests and career aspirations grew, her time in the
classroom did, too. In 2000, she earned her bachelor's in social work and a
master's in counseling education in 2005, both from George Mason University in
Fairfax. Sale has worked in mental health, in a
treatment center for youths and in an outpatient facility. One memorable job
was working for the state with pregnant inmates in the five county jails of
Northern Virginia. "I was doing social work and counseling
groups and case management. The stories you heard were horrific," she said. But
she also witnessed amazing transformations - inmates who now are married with
children or who own businesses. "I've run into multiple people that I've helped
and they said, ‘We looked for you.' There are thre... Oct 12, 2018
