The Artists Giving New Life to Fake Flowers - The New York Times

John Derian, the home décor shop in Manhattan’s East Village. The Berkeley, Calif., artist Anandamayi Arnold, 45, makes everything from pomegranates to irises (rhizome included) covered in richly hued crepe paper. Her decorative blooms also double as party favors: The hollow insides hold secret trinkets like friendship bracelets and stickers.Then there’s Sourabh Gupta, 30, who grew up in northern India, and who constructs his microscopically detailed blooms — Queen Anne’s lace, lady’s slippers and hellebore anchored in distressed terra-cotta or stone pots — in his Brooklyn studio, using everyday materials: Petals are made from paper towels hand-painted with food dye, coffee and tea; stamens are made from kitchen sponges. Boulder, Colo.-based Stephanie Redlinger, 39, a former graphic designer who launched her paper botanical atelier, the Florasmith, in San Francisco in 2015, considers her flowers and the mushrooms she has perfected, made primarily from crepe paper embellished with materials like sand, “as botanical portrait or homage” — realistic but with an emphasis on each creation’s essential quirks, such as a poppy’s wrinkles. The paper artist Zoe Bradley, 47, whose studio is in Cowbridge, near Cardiff, Wales, takes a more abstract, performative approach to her flowers. She began her career at the fashion house Alexander McQueen, where she built wooden legs and fan-shaped corsets for one of the designer’s elaborate runway shows, and her psychedelic-meets-origami blossoms, which she creates from stiff metallic paper, have been displayed in the windows of London stores including Liberty and Harrods.And then there’s Tiffanie Turner, based in Fairfax, Calif., who is widely acknowledged as the progenitor and doyenne of the new generation of paper-flower makers, teaching popular workshops on the subject. She shows her work in galleries and museums, like the a...

How the monkeyflower gets its spots - UC Berkeley

Benjamin Blackman, assistant professor of plant and molecular biology at the University of California, Berkeley. Read more See the companion press release at UConn Today In a new paper, Blackman and his group at UC Berkeley, in collaboration with Yaowu Yuan and his group at the University of Connecticut, reveal for the first time the genetic programming that helps the monkeyflower — and likely other patterned flowers — achieve their spotted glory. The study was published online today (Thursday, Feb. 20) in the journal Current Biology. “While we know a good deal about how hue is specified in flower petals — whether it is red or orange or blue, for instance — we don’t know a lot about how those pigments are then painted into patterns on petals during development to give rise to these spots and stripes that are often critical for interacting with pollinators,” Blackman said. “Our lab, in collaboration with others, has developed the genetic tools to be able to identify the genes related to these patterns and perturb them so that we can confirm what’s actually going on.” In the study, the research team used CRISPR-Cas9 gene editing to recreate the yellow monkeyflower patterns found in nature. On the left, a wild-type monkeyflower exhibits the typical spotted pattern. In the middle, a heterozygote with one normal RTO gene and one damaged RTO gene exhibits blotchier spots. And on the right, homozygote with two copies of the damaged RTO gene is all red, with no spots. (UC Berkeley photo by Srinidhi Holalu) The positions of petals’ spots aren’t mapped out ahead of time, like submarines in a game of battleship, Blackman said. Instead, scientists have long theorized that they could come about through the workings of an activator-repressor...

Letters to the Editor: Colonial Lake's plants are in flower - Charleston Post Courier

Courier reported on the “turf war” in which local hospital systems are engaged to stop each other from building facilities or providing services in Berkeley and Charleston counties.Hospital systems use the state Certification of Need law to stymie competitors’ plans while they proceed with their own. Charleston hospitals at war over MUSC's plans to build in Berkeley CountyWorse, they use the CON process and considerable resources to keep independent, cost-effective, high quality options from operating in our communities.The reason, as stated in the article, is that competition would have financial consequences for the established companies.We think the consequences of the CON law are far more detrimental to patients than competition might be for feuding health care systems.We have the ninth most restrictive CON law in the country and, as a direct result, insufficient numbers of surgery centers, addiction treatment facilities, birthing centers and other services.South Carolina has an estimated 6,331 fewer hospital beds than needed, 10-19 fewer MRI facilities than needed and 33-44 fewer CT scanners than needed.Rural patients travel farther for routine procedures and treatments, and urban patients are artificially limited to expensive, hospital-owned facilities.Charity medical care, a condition of the CON law, is less in our state than in non-CON states, according to a study by George Mason University Mercatus Center (bit.ly/36tcacm).The end result chokes off options for patients. The state of South Carolina needs to stop empowering the South Carolina Hospital Association and its members at the public’s expense and open the door to competition with all its consequences: increased access to more better quality options at lower costs and increased charity care.The CON law needs to be repealed.DR.

Flowers in the sky: These crops grow on a Berkeley rooftop - Berkeleyside

There wasn’t one particular aha moment, although farming does run in her family. Nevertheless, the 35-year-old, Berkeley-raised entrepreneur has cultivated flowers on a farm for several years. The latest iteration of her venture comes with a twist, however, as her crops are sown and bloom on top of a downtown apartment building that many Cal students call home. A few months ago, Letz’s business, Bluma Flower Farm, took over the rooftop plots in the Garden Village building on Dwight and Fulton that used to be home to Top Leaf Farms. At this time of year not much is in bloom, but there are snapdragons growing in one corner and lavender in another. In the ground are future dahlias, cosmos, lisianthus and zinnias. For the past four years, Letz has been commuting to Sunol, which is where she first started the farm. And, despite having expanded to Berkeley, she is not yet ready to give up the lease on the land in Sunol, because farming in a city, on top of a roof, not to mention in a completely different climate, is a huge experiment. “It’s definitely a huge learning curve,” she said. “I know a lot but I don’t know how my crops will grow on this roofto...

Shop Talk: Bluemercury; Airport Home Appliance; Ruby Rugs; AxeVentures; Ana's Flowers - Berkeleyside

Bay Area with some offering spa services such as massage, facials and waxing. Bluemercury, 2956 College Ave. (at Ashby), Berkeley 94705. Tel: 1-800-355-6000. Connect on Facebook and Twitter. Airport Home Appliance on Shattuck is moving to Emeryville this summer. Photo: Airport Home ApplianceAIRPORT HOME APPLIANCE The decades-old appliance store located on Shattuck Avenue is moving to Emeryville this summer. Airport Home Appliance began as a small-appliance and furniture store in 1963. Brothers Bernie and Manny Schwartz sold the business in 1970 to three engineers and then, in 1981, the business was sold a third time to current owners, Don and Tomi Van Eeghen. It is run by their daughter, Kate. The store has been in its Shattuck Avenue location since 2011. The business says it offers the largest selection of appliance brands in Northern California and has six locations in the Bay Area. According to marketing spokeswoman Alicia Owsley, the Shattuck Avenue location will close on July 15 and the Emeryville location will open on July 1. “Although the Berkeley location has been great for the company, the footprint wasn’t a good fit for the new direction and goals of our showrooms,” Owsley said. The Berkeley store is currently the smallest showroom for the business. Airport is in the process of relocating another store in Redwood City pegged to open June 1, as well as a new showroom in San Rafael later this year. All three showrooms will feature “live vignettes” and an elevated experience for customers. “People really want to experience the appliances they are interested in by seeing and touching the product, and in the future at Airport Home Appliance you will e...
