Company uses flowers to send message during local protests - Richmond Free Press
A local floral design company adorned the monuments of Maggie L. Walker and Arthur Ashe Jr. in a show of solidarity with local Black Lives Matter protesters and to make a positive statement about two highly regarded hometown heroes and trailblazers.
Hillary Carr, 29, owner of Vessel + Stem, and Maya Shaw, 27, the company’s floral designer, were moved when monuments honoring Mrs. Walker, an iconic businesswoman and civil rights advocate, and Mr. Ashe, a tennis legend and humanitarian, were left unscathed after demonstrators vandalized stores and properties along Broad Street and in Jackson Ward and marred Confederate statues with graffiti on Monument Avenue in recent days.
In response, they wanted to do something visually special and meaningful to bring joy to the city, honor to Mrs. Walker and Mr. Ashe and salute the Black Lives Matter movement.
Ms. Carr, who is Caucasian, said the idea of placing flowers at the two monuments came from Ms. Shaw, who is African-American.
The statues — Mrs. Walker’s at Broad and Adams streets in Downtown, and Mr. Ashe’s on M... Mar 19, 2020

Cantor Hans Cohn
Cantor Hans Cohn passed away surrounded by his loving family on January 4, 2020 at the age of 93 in Redwood City, California. He led an extraordinary life.
Hans was born on May 31, 1926, in Berlin, Germany. His first years were lived happily with his parents who owned a small women’s clothing shop. As Hitler came to power, his life drastically changed. His synagogue where he attended school was torched on Kristallnacht. As soon as they could, his family escaped to Shanghai, where he lived for seven years. His mother died within five months of their arrival.
During the years in Shanghai (from ages 11 to 19) he experienced hunger, poverty and death around him, yet he still managed to have his bar mitzvah and take singing lessons. He had to drop out of school to get a job, but he learned to be an expert cook, working in restaurants. When the war was over, he stowed away on a ship to Australia. He was caught but managed to slip away and live as an undocumented person under the name Johnny Corn. Finally, he turned himself in and with the help of the Jewish community avoided jail time and was able to leave for the U.S.

A tree in Brazil’s arid northeast rains nectar from its flowers - Science News
It’s night, and plant
biologist Arthur Domingos de Melo is looking up at the open, ivory flowers of a
tropical, hardwood tree. Though it’s the dry season in the arid, thorny
Caatinga region of northeast Brazil, a slow drizzle begins to fall. But not
from the sky. Domingos de Melo is under the tree’s canopy, and the “rain” is sweet.

and falls in unusually copious and fragrant showers, even though the price of
water in this part of the world is steep.
Domingos de Melo and colleagues at the Universidade Federal de Pernambuco in Recife, Brazil, had been studying bat pollination of local plants for two decades in the region when, in 2015, one type of bat-pollinated tree struck them as odd. Its nectar, rather than just the flower petals, was imbued with its own perfume — a phenomenon poorly understood in bat-pollinated plants — and the plant made loads of it.
From 2015 to 2018, the team
studied a population of H. cangaceira...
