Bernstein's genius flowers at Bard
Among Bernstein’s many notable compositions, his Candide stands near the apex.James Bagwell’s conducting of the chorus was magnificent. The large chorus added impressive impact to the libretto and offered wider social implications on how the central plot concerning the two star-plagued lovers carries wider social significance. Tenor Eric Finbarr Carey, a Walter W. Naumburg International Vocal Competition 2014 winner, in the role of ever-optimistic Candide, was resonant, mellifluous, and deft with dramatic nuance. The famous “Glitter and Be Gay” solo (perhaps the most fiendishly difficult run in all of opera with its high E-flats) was nailed with exuberant aplomb by Danika Felty in a stunning tour-de-force performance. Nathaniel Sullivan as Voltaire/Pangloss/Martin supplied dramatic panache with his amusing and enthusiastic phrasing of the prose parts of the libretto. Luke Macmillan as Maximilian was suave, debonair, and convincing as a villain. Elaine Daiber as gypsy Paquette invigorated the role with zest as she sang in high gear, especially in her duo with dynamic Felty.The overall effect of hearing an operetta sung in such clear English was a special pleasure since each word was distinct in its musical adornment.Throughout this comic, synoptic version of Voltaire’s novella, the libretto’s self-conscious jokes highlight the wandering absurdity of Voltaire’s ridiculous plot, which satirized the then-popular picaresque form, as well as fundamentalist optimism, and Christian persecution of innocents over “heresy.” Despite the brutal humor of Voltaire’s unrelenting cynicism, the final climatic chorus somehow conveyed a message of hope, which may be one of the few transformative, cathartic moments in operatic comedy. Despite the rampage of cynicism, one left the performance with lilting smile.I cannot recall such a long-standing audience ovation at the conclusion of a performance at Sosnoff Theater.

MYSTERY PLANT: Wildflower blooms in summer for as long as it can
In this case, all of the flower parts appear to arise at the very end, or apex of the ovary, and so the ovary is in a position below or inferior to the floral parts.
Other plants exhibit an alternative "superior" ovary, with the floral parts at the base of the ovary. A good example would be what happens with a tomato flower.
The tomato, as it swells, has a “blossom end” where it is attached to the flower. The position of the ovary, from species to species, is very important in separating different plant families.
Once pollination has occurred, the ovary of our mystery plant elongates considerably, often swelling somewhat toward the end. Plenty of tiny, pale tan seeds will be produced, and these will fall away once the matured ovary, now a capsule, splits open.
This plant is common in wet places, often in ditches or at pond edges or other marshy spots. It's found from Maryland to West Virginia and well into southern Florida, as well as Texas and the lower Midwestern states. It has plenty of near relatives, many of which are most common in South America.
Some of these are reasonably aggressive and are considered serious pests in wetlands. Otherwise, it is more distantly related to some very popular ornamental plants, including evening-primrose, as well as the cultivated fuchsias. This yellow-blooming wetland herb probably won't win many competitions in the flower shows, but it's nice to see on a mid-autumn day, bravely blooming up to the bitter end.

Sunflowers dance under the sun to increase growth, says scientists
The higher growth rate on the east versus west side of the stem during the day enables the shoot apex to move gradually from east to the west. At night, the higher growth rate on the west side culminates in the apex facing east at dawn.”

A young sunflower plant not only tracks the sun during the day but also reorients at night in anticipation of dawn.
Mature sunflowers respond differently to the sun as it has achieved its full growth and the researchers compared mature flowers facing east with those they turned to face west, and found that the east-facing blooms attracted five times as many helpful pollinators.
“Just like people, plants rely on the daily rhythms of day and night to function,” says Anne Sylvester, director of the National Science Foundation’s Plant Genome Research Program.
Hence, young sunflowers actually dance as each day, when they trace the path of the sun across the sky, turning their faces 180 degrees from east to west.

Nepal's commercial flower output worth Rs671m
The sector provides employment to 2,300 people on a permanent basis and to 72,400 people on daily-wage basis.
This is the first time the government’s apex statistical authority has carried out a national level census in the floriculture sector.
The country produces seasonal flowers like marigold and dahlia, among others, worth Rs221.74 million annually, the CBS said.
Perennial flowers make up the second largest production. The country grows perennial flowers like rose, chrysanthemum, carnation and azalea worth Rs167.09 million annually. The third on the list of most widely produced flowers is decorative flowers. Nepal produces decorative flowers such as dhupi (Himalayan Cypress), shrubs used in hedge and erica, among others, worth Rs120.37 million.
Similarly, cut flowers, loose flowers, garden dubo (commonly called Bermuda grass) and flowers produced through seeds, rhizome and bulb are also among the most widely produced flowers in Nepal.
Unveiling the report on Monday, Nebin Lal Shrestha, deputy director general of the CBS, said Nepal had immense potential in producing these flowers due to the diverse climatic conditions and geographical structures. “The country can benefit from expanding commercial farming of these flowers through import substitution,” he said.
According to the CBS, it has considered growing flowers on at least 8 annas of land in the hilly and mountainous regions as commercial
farming. In the Tarai, the CBS has set the threshold for commercial farming at 10 dhurs of land.
The CBS said it conducted the study in two phases—identifying the distric... (The Kathmandu Post (satire))
