The Dual History of Poisonous Flowers - The New York Times
A plant that is so tender, immobile, typically considered just fodder for livestock — it has its own power, its own goals,” the New York City floral designer Emily Thompson says. The ancients knew this, among them the second-century-B.C. ruler Attalus III of Pergamum (now the modern-day Turkish city of Bergama), who in his palace garden grew the likes of henbane, or stinking nightshade, with its purple-hearted yellow bells and gift of hallucinations and a rattling heart; delicate hellebore, which can sting the skin and twist the guts; and airy sprays of poison hemlock, a dupe for harmless Queen Anne’s lace that can bring the central nervous system to a halt. Attalus, who had a reputation for paranoia, tested extracts of these plants on convicts as a rehearsal for disposing of political rivals. (He is remembered as the Mad King.)BUT THESE POISONS were also balms, historically used as medicines, sickness and health coming from the same source, as with a virus weakened to create a vaccine. Hellebore was prescribed in ancient Greece and the Middle Ages alike for its purgative effects, to rid the body of excess “black bile,” the imagined cause of melancholy. Henbane — theorized to be the fuel of the Norse berserkers of the ninth through 12th centuries, who might have drunk it as a tea before battle and then torn off their chain mail and, naked and howling, slaughtered anyone in their path in an enraged trance — was paradoxically a sedative in smaller doses. The first botanical gardens, founded in the Italian cities of Pisa, Padua and Florence in the 16th century, included plots of toxic plants used by apothecaries as tools for preserving life or perhaps, clandestinely, induci...

He graduated from Yale in 1946 with a degree in mechanical engineering.He is survived by his wife, Mary (Deuel); they married in 1947. That same year he joined Goodyear as a sales trainee, selling conveyor belt and industrial hose in the company’s Duluth, Minnesota, territory that included Michigan’s Upper Peninsula.He was promoted throughout his years at Goodyear and was named company president in 1978, chief operating officer in 1980 and then chairman and CEO in 1983, succeeding Charles Pilliod. He retired as CEO at age 65, with Tom Barrett taking over the top position."It is not an exaggeration to say that the Goodyear of today would not exist without Bob Mercer," said Rich Kramer, Goodyear chairman, president and chief executive officer."As our CEO during the attempted takeover of the company in 1986, Bob stood firm in his commitment to our associates, to the company, to our customers and to the city of Akron. He not only saved the company from an uncertain fate but used the experience to reposition us for growth in the future. Bob added to the legacy of a great American company and planted the seeds for the Goodyear of the future. Everyone in the Goodyear family owes Bob Mercer a debt of gratitude and appreciation."Other activitiesMerce... Sep 7, 2020

How to Make Paper Flowers - The New York Times
Elmer’s)Heavy paper plate or similar-size piece of cardboard (optional, for wreath)Hot glue (optional, for wreath)Credit...Jodi Levine for The New York TimesHow to get startedIf you’d like, paint the newspaper. Water down the paint a bit first if you’d like to be able to see the newspaper print through it.Cut out the template here, or, even better, make a sturdy reusable template: Tape the paper to a piece of thin cardboard (like from a recycled cereal box) and cut through the template and cardboard at the same time. Trace the design onto a piece of newspaper and cut it out.Credit...Jodi Levine for The New York TimesCredit...Jodi Levine for The New York TimesRoll the end, starting at the outside, around a toothpick. Line up the straight bottom as you roll; the curved top will flare out a bit. You can add a few dots of glue inside the roll as you’re going if you’d like, or just glue the end closed. Gently slide the rolled-up paper off the toothpick and squeeze some glue into the roll and on the bottom.Curl the petals open and use a toothpick to curl the edges of petals.To make a wreath, cut a ring base out of a heavy paper plate (or trace a bowl). The one used to make our wreath is about a ½ inch thick and 6½ inches in diameter. Hot-glue the flowers to the ring. Cut out some almond-shaped leaves and fold them in half to give them some dimension. Glue a few leaves under the flowers.aside class="c... Aug 3, 2020
Flower Power: The Benefits of 6 Key Floral Extracts in Skin Care - NewBeauty Magazine
Paula Provenzano, national education manager for Jurlique. New York dermatologist Heidi Waldorf, MD adds that “archaeological remains of bottles have revealed that Egyptians knew how to extract essential oils from flowers, including geranium and rose, with a technique called enfleurage that involves soaking parts of the flower in oil.”
Edouard Mauvais-Jarvis, director of scientific and environmental communications for Dior, says the skin-care benefits of flowers stem from their desperate need to protect themselves. “Flowers have a huge advantage over us: They have more than 1.2 billion years of evolution; they are the most evolved part of the vegetal world,” he explains. “But, they have a big disadvantage, too: They are not able to move, so they cannot escape environmental aggressions that surround them, such as UV rays, oxidative stress, climate variations, draught and frost. As a result, they have developed an extremely rich biodiversity of molecules made to defend their structures.” To extract these molecules from flowers and create precious essential oils, chemists typically use steam distillation: Hot steam causes dried flowers to open up and release their oils, nutrients and liquids.
On skin-care ingredient labels, floral extracts are listed by their INCI name (International Nomenclature of Cosmetic Ingredients), which aligns with the Latin or scientific name. More than 28,000 INCI names, published by the Personal Care Products Council, have been developed by the INCI Committee with participation by the FDA.
