San Diego Company Plants Energy 'Flowers' to Power Communities - NBC 7 San Diego
They've created a philanthropic arm, called Primo Seeds, to raise money for equipment donation. Their first project will help Cornwall College in Montego Bay, Jamaica. "It is a project that would send two of our systems to a school that needs security camera coverage, needs a portable power source that really doesn't have a lot of power in. So we're really excited about that," Van Zanten said. It has taken Primo Wind six years and 11 different iterations of the EnergiPlant to get to this point. Van Zanten said it's worth it. "It's been a long road and we're continuing to improve but we feel like a lot of our hard work's paid off."... Jun 14, 2018
'That brick red frock with flowers everywhere': painting Katherine Mansfield
June 2018(main picture). It was painted by the American artist Anne Estelle Rice. At that time, Mansfield and Rice were both staying in Cornwall, the writer at the Headland Hotel at Looe on the south-east coast of the county, and the artist, together with her husband, theatre and art critic Raymond Drey, nearby.In December Mansfield had been diagnosed with tuberculosis, at that time incurable, and from which she died five years later, but in May, her very brief marriage to George Bowden having been terminated, she married writer-editor John Middleton Murry. Mansfield and Murry were to have a highly unusual relationship, notable not only for its frequent and lengthy partings. Katherine was in Cornwall without him, with the aim of resting in the fresh seaside air. We know the date of the sitting from a letter that Katherine sent to her husband in London on 17 June:Anne came early and began the great painting – me in that red (sic) brick red frock with flowers everywhere. It's awfully interesting even now.That last phrase implies that there were to be later sittings, but, if there were, Mansfield did not mention them in surviving letters or notebooks. Nevertheless, the fact that it was not finished is evident f... Feb 8, 2018
Will British-grown cut flowers take more market this spring?
We will have flowers from growers from north of Inverness to Cornwall to East Anglia," says Flowers from the Farm's Gill Hodgson. "We want to be representative and to show British flowers can be grown anywhere in the country."The exhibit has no sponsor but it will show that a strong message can be put across to the public without spending tens of thousands of pounds, she explains. Flowers from the Farm's 550 members will be donating time and flowers for free to the exhibit, which Hodgson has designed. After four years at Tatton Park, three years at Hampton Court and gold medals at regional and other shows including BBC Gardeners' World Live, the co-operative is now ready for the biggest stage, says Hodgson.The only challenge is the logistics of getting the flowers to Chelsea, it not being able to supply flowers in season. "We're going to show them all wrong," says Hodgson of an Interflora British-themed exhibit, also in Chelsea's pavilion (in 2015), that had only one out of 80 varieties from Britain, blaming unavailabity for having to import mos...Jul 27, 2017

Chapel Hill Zen Center to celebrate Buddha's birthday Sunday – Flo ...
East Franklin Street.Adult tickets are $10; children and students, free.PassoverJudea Reform Congregation, 1933 W. Cornwallis Road, Durham, marked the second night of Passover with a seder focused on the plight of refugees in the Triangle.Through its partnership with resettlement agency Church World Service-Durham and PORCH, a nonprofit food-focused organization, refugees were invited along with a staff member from CWS-Durham.“The Passover story is one of migration from deprivation to freedom. And while it is always meant to be understood as both timeless and timely, some years it feels more so,” said Rabbi Larry Bach of Judea Reform Congregation in Durham.Judea Reform formed its resettlement committee less than a year ago. Since then it has led the congregation to donate backpacks filled with school supplies for local refugee children, transcribe refugee experiences of Judea Reform congregants, furnish an apartment for a newly arrived family, donate winter coats to refugees in need, purchase GoDurham Bus Passes for refugees needing transportation and raise $5,300 for job training programs in partnership with SONAM (Singers of New and Ancient Music), a nonprofit chorus.Religious research Duke University will use a $1.5 million grant from Lilly Endowment Inc. to assess how America’s religious congregations’ demographics and practices are changing, Valerie Ashby, dean of Duke’s Trinity College of Arts & Sciences, has announced.This ongoing National Congregations Study at Duke includes American churches, synagogues, mosques and other places of worship. Mark Chaves, a Duke professor of sociology, religious studies and divinity, directs the study.More than 3,800 congregations have participated in the first three phases of the study, which has taken place between 1998 and 2012.“The new funding will enable us to update and expand the solid base of knowledge we’ve built so far,” said Chaves. “I’m eager to see what we learn in this next wave of data collection about congregations’ leadership patterns, social and political activities, and the many ways that they contribute to communities.”Lilly Endowment has a long history of making grants to Duke. Recent grants include $6 million to support the Divinity School’s leadership development programs for religious leaders, $250,000 to address the education debt of seminary students, and $500,000 to strengthen preaching resources through a partnership involving Duke Divinity School, Duke Chapel and Duke Libraries.
