Don't let the name fool you—Floral Park Market is one of the best places to grocery shop - Atlanta Magazine
There are no big brands anywhere, and way out in the back is a cool room with fresh flowers and pristine produce.In 1997, James Olsen established a wholesale flower business, which he eventually moved into a former bakery on the Westside. Michelle, his wife of 22 years, grew up on a dairy farm in rural Connecticut; her passion for fresh, local food pushed the flower store to pivot to consumables in the fall of 2016. A vegetarian herself, she doesn’t mind selling fresh sausages, plump organic chicken leg quarters, and big crimson steaks cut from grass-fed local beef.The prepared food is indeed worth the trip alone, ranging from turmeric hummus and dehydrated basil crackers (from healthy-eating guru David Sweeney of the late, lamented Dynamic Dish) to beauteous cold cucumber soup (from Simply Fresh), delicate fresh macarons (from Deborah Johnson, who lived in Paris for more than 20 years and was schooled at Le Cordon Bleu) to frozen wood-fired pizza (from a Brooklyn outfit that got its start on Shark Tank).But that’s hardly the market’s sole selling point. There is a station for dispensing locally made Golda’s CBD kombucha on tap, shelves of local H+F breads next to two crockpots of boiled peanuts, and a large display of organic hand-milled grains. Floral Park Market doesn’t feel like a glorified convenience store. Everything from the spicy Portuguese tinned sardines to the roasted pecans whose proceeds benefit Meals on Wheels has been carefully sourced. If your ideal shopping list includes freshly baked banana bread, a bottle of elderberry syrup, high-quality CBD products, and in-house pickles, jams, and honey butter, there’s no better market in town. And as someone who has long been committed to the imperative to shop local, I’m kicking myself for not finding my way to Floral Park Market sooner.This article appears in our October 2020 issue.Advertisement...

Bloom Watch Continues for 'Corpse Flower' at the Huntington - Pasadena Now
It is a rare tropical plant native to the equatorial rainforests of Sumatra, Indonesia.”
And it didn’t earn its nicknames with a pleasant aroma.
“When in flower, it exudes a foul stench that smells like rotting meat,” the statement said. “For that reason, Indonesians call it Bunga Bangkai, which means ‘Corpse Flower.’”
The flowers bloom only once every several years, and on an unpredictable basis, according to The Huntington. It lasts only a couple days.
Once blooming begins, it usually takes several hours until the flowers fully open.
To pollinate, staff then uses a paintbrush to dab up pollen from a male plant and applies it to the stigmas of the female flower.
“The window of opportunity for this is roughly one day because on the first day after opening, the male flowers shed their pollen and the female flowers are no longer receptive,” according to The Huntington statement. “We do this to prevent autogamy, or self-pollination, so we can maximize the distribution of genes and maintain more adaptive genetic diversity.”
The expected bloom will be the eighth at The Huntington since 1999. Most recently, people lined up to get a view, and a whiff, of the massive flower in July of 2019.
The Huntington remains closed to the public to the pandemics, but a live stream of the flower can be viewed online at youtu.be/tm1MJD-Qq5E.

Robert Mercer, CEO who helped win Goodyear War, dies at age 96 - Akron Beacon Journal
Mercer, Goodyear’s chairman and chief executive from 1983 to 1989, led the company in its desperate fight against corporate raider Sir James Goldsmith, the billionaire multinational financier who shocked the community with his attempt to buy the company and break it up.Mercer by default became the general over a team of executives and others in what became the Goodyear War, a 10-week battle in 1986 to retain the identity and substance of not just Goodyear but in many ways also of Akron. Goodyear then was the city’s largest employer and rubber, while on the wane, still ran through Akron’s veins. The aftermath in many ways reshaped the city.Mercer, a World War II veteran who worked at Goodyear for 42 years, died on Friday. He was 96 years old.The 1986 war of substance was also a war of words, and Mercer and his lieutenants chose their words carefully and passionately in rallying and uniting people and institutions to the cause against outsider Goldsmith."He wanted to buy it, break it up and sell it off. That’s where the money was," Mercer recalled in 2011, 25 years later.As the war began, Mercer met with Goldsmith, who by then was the company’s largest shareh...
