Flowers overcomes illness, continues to grow for Seahawks - Associated Press
Seahawks.“It’s such a difficult position to play out there and particularly for a guy that doesn’t have it in his history,” coach Pete Carroll said. “He’s really grown into his own. He’s such a beautiful athlete and he’s such a good competitor, and he’s a tough guy. It’s great to see him coming through and making it.”Flowers has three interceptions this season for Seattle after not recording one during his first season with the team. Despite his newness to the position, Flowers started 15 games as a rookie. It was a work in progress as Flowers had to learn Seattle’s cornerback technique and how to see the game from a different vantage point.“He’s certainly worked his tail off and he’s always improving,” defensive coordinator Ken Norton Jr. said. “He’s going to make his mistakes and then he’s going to learn from his mistakes. We all get better by our failures and our mistakes and he’s certainly gotten better every single time he’s gone out.”It’s an ongoing process for Flowers, which is why he tried to keep practicing last week despite an illness that forced receivers Tyler Lockett and David Moore, defensive tackle Poona Ford and backup center Jordan Roos to go home.“It was pretty crazy,” Flowers said. “They tried to send me home, I wasn’t taking that for an answer, I had to put on the doctor mask. Then I looked I was going to die out here. I’m glad all of that is over with, we’re trying to get back to normal.” Flowers’ improvement is an aspect of the defenses’ improvement as the season has progressed. The addition of Quandre Diggs at free safety has settled the back end of the defense. Meanwhile, the pass rush has finally blossomed as well and the result has been 11 turnovers forced over the team’s last three games.“I think we’re just all hitting our stride,” Flowers said. “We’re getting better. We’re not at the top and we’re for sure not perfect, so we’re just going to keep getting better.”Notes: DE Jadeveon Clowney (core) and DE Ziggy Ansah (neck) will be game-time decisions Sunday night against the Los Angeles Rams. … CB Neiko Thorpe had surgery to address a sports hernia and will be placed on injured reserve. … FB Nick Bellore (quadriceps), T...

In the Mountains, Climate Change Is Disrupting Everything, from How Water Flows to When Plants Flower - InsideClimate News
Will Water Reliability Break Down?
In Crested Butte, about 100 miles southwest of Leadville, hydrologist and physicist Rosemary Carroll studies how disruptions to the water cycle will affect local ranchers and ski areas, as well as drinking and agricultural water supplies hundreds of miles away.
The IPCC assessment found that global warming will change the timing and amount of runoff, "affecting water storage and delivery infrastructure around the world," a finding backed by research focusing on the West.
A 2016 study in six Western mountain ranges showed rising temperatures will shift the snow accumulation zone and runoff timing enough to have significant impacts on water cycles. And some towns in the Rockies and Sierra Nevada are at risk from dangerous flash floods as global warming brings rain, rather than snow, to some mountain regions.
Carroll pointed out her living room window to a craggy ridgeline where she measures how water from melted snow trickles through rocks and meadows down to the East River, on to the Gunnison River and finally into the mighty Colorado.
"The new normal is that the snowpack is melting earlier and we have earlier runoff, and that's a fact. There's going to be less water for a given snowpack," she said. Even in average snowfall years, global warming is reducing the amount of available water for irrigation and storage, she said.
Her research for the University of Nevada's Desert Research Institute and the U.S. Department of Energy will help communities adapt as global warming disrupts flows from mountain streams. Around Crested Butte, the ski industry and local ranchers will feel the changes first.
But addressing those impacts isn't as easy as just throwing a new report on the table. Translating science into action requires working with stakeholders from the start.
"Ranchers know what's happening, they know that things are shifting, but they're afraid the policy will shift in a way that they will carry the burden of the change. Since they have most of the water, they fear they will have to give up the most, and that it won't be equitable," she said.
The states that get their water from the Colorado River are already restructuring water-sharing agreements to stave off shortages and trying to develop new storage plans to account for extreme wet and dry years.
Goodbye to Glaciers
Global warming will change nearly every mountain ecosystem, starting with the very visible meltdown of glaciers.
In the European Alps, some glaciers retreated by as much 410 feet last year — imagine the Empire State Building shrinking by a third. Globally, the world's glaciers have lost 9 trillion tons of ice since 1961, raising sea level by about 1 inch, according to the European Space Agency.
As glaciers melt, they create a series of risks: newly formed meltwater lakes can burst through their banks, flooding towns and farms below. And as the ice dwindles, that will significantly change... Sep 19, 2019
Flower shop caters to Notre Dame, Saint Mary's students - Observer Online
Facebook several years ago and decided to apply for the position. She enjoyed the work and decided to continue.
“I saw the application on the Carroll Hall Facebook page when I was a sophomore, and so I applied and got the job. It’s a great place to work here, and so I just continued working. And then when it was time to choose new managers I applied and got the position,” she said.
Senior Alicia Cristoforo is another Irish Gardens employee. She started working in the shop last year and said the opportunity presents a chance to showcase her creativity as well as get a taste of the warmer months during the winter.
“I started working here my junior year, and it has always been a great creative outlet in between classes,” she said. ”Getting to make flower arrangements in the middle of the winter was something that is nice to do.”
The group that operates Irish Gardens is tight knit, Cristoforo said. She also said the job has given her an opportunity to bring joy to members of the Notre Dame community.
“This has been by far the best job I’ve ever had. We get to make people really happy,” she said ”Sometimes people will come in here just to look at the flowers. I work with really great people and we call ourselves the Flower Fam.”
As the new school year begins, Loper said the business is focused on raising its profile. In particular, she said the flower shop is trying to make more people aware of its existence and presence in LaFortune through heightened social media engagement.
“We are really trying to increase our social media presence and get our name out there more,” she said. ”One of our biggest obstacles is that people don’t know we exist, being tucked away in the basement.”

The heat wave is causing sunflowers to bloom early - CNN
Just because a few fields have bloomed early doesn't mean the season is completely out of whack. Mark Carroll, a biologist with the South Carolina Department of Natural Resources, says it all depends on when the flowers are planted. "Sometimes, I can barely get any work done, there are so many people calling, wanting to come and look at them," he said. "Eventually, I put a message on the answering machine, letting people know when they were going to bloom." "That's when they're starting to dry out and drop seeds for wildlife to eat," Carroll explains. "The seeds attract mourning doves just in time for the public hunting season."There is something very metal about a field of sunflowers transforming into a reaping ground for doves, but save those thoughts for your next Instagram post. A social media hit CNN Travel's Richard Quest takes an insider look at Amsterdam's favorite flower.Speaking of Instagram, it's no wonder that the image-conscious side of social media has taken a shine to the sunflower. Dave Diggs, owner of the Sunflower Garden in Westminster, Maryland, says he thinks Facebook and Instagram have helped catch people's interest and sustain a unique fascination with the bloom. "The sunflower is certainly a hot flower this year, and it has been for a while, perhaps more than any other flower I can recall," he said. Diggs says that sunflowers are affected by the heat, and it could definitely make them bloom sooner. But places like the Sunflower Garden plant several times a season, so a premature bloom isn't really that big of a deal. "However, we did have a cooler spring than normal," he said, "So that definitely slowed things down at first." It's not just the temperatures the sunflowers are susceptible to; they really do "follow the sun" throughout the day. Scientists have settled on a few reasons and mechanisms for this behavior. Is it so you'll always be in good lighting for your Instagram pics? No, but you're free to believe that if you want. Jul 5, 2019
Exotic flowers, burlap, and mini disco balls: How Sara Perez-Ekanger built a floral design company - The Advocate
Starbucks coffee shop for a bit, but the real architects of her future were around the corner from the apartment they rented: Carrollton Flower Market and then-proprietor Lisa Rogers. Perez-Ekanger (jokingly at first) mentioned to her husband how much fun it would be to work in a flower shop.“He literally pushed me through the doors,” she says. She was hired, and “the owner, Lisa, took me under her wing, teaching me a lot of things about aesthetics.”As Perez-Ekanger’s skills evolved, Rogers encouraged her to “keep practicing and owning it,” and Perez-Ekanger began freelancing as a floral designer for venues around the city, including Stella Plantation. After three years of working for other businesses, the plan to open Antigua Floral + Styling took shape. The company turned three in February, quickly surpassing its humble beginnings in the living room of the Ekangers’ one-bedroom apartment. Now, she and her team have a dedicated studio space in Gert Town.“At one point, I couldn’t take more business because of how small the studio was,” she says. Now, she and her team can travel for special events. They’ve been flown as far as Key West, Florida to design and style a wedding for a client.
Poets-for-hire Lecco Morris and Daniel Shkolnik, decked out in vintage clothing and toting old-fashioned typewriters, are bringing Bohemian fl…
“It was an incredible opportunity,” she says. “It was cool to represent [a class of creatives] from New Orleans.”Just as her work space evolves, so does her design aesthetic. The most-viewed photos of her work feature exotic tropical flowers, such as proteas and anemones, and vibrant colors, such as coral and fuchsia, but Perez-Ekanger likes to think of those designs as a “branchin...

Caretaker Finds Body Of Infant Inside Flower Pot At Cemetery In Carrollton - CBS Dallas / Fort Worth
CARROLLTON, Texas (CBSDFW.COM) – The body of an infant was found inside a flower pot at a cemetery in Carrollton by a caretaker on March 11.
According to police, a caretaker at Perry Cemetery emptied a flower pot that was “out of place” and found the body under soil inside the pot.
The medical examiner determined that the infant was a girl and was 34 weeks to full term. She weighed six pounds and still had the umbilical cord attached to her.
So far they have not determined if the child was stillborn or not.
“We are awaiting further test results to determine whether she was born alive,” Carrollton police spokeswoman Jolene DeVito said in a news release Wednesday.
Investigators say the flower pot may have been placed inside the cemetery between Wednesday, Feb. 27 and Saturday, March 2.
Police say it appears someone was trying to craft a burial spot by putting the body in the pot and placing flowers inside.
“It would seem that whoever placed the baby’s body there also put the flowers, we...
