Cambridge Botanical Garden's rare orchid finally flowers except it smells really bad - Cambridge News
A rare orchid which hardly ever flowers has finally bloomed, except it now smells like rotting cabbages. Gardeners at Cambridge University Botanical Garden (CUBFG) have spent this year trying to get their Bulbophyllum phalaenopsis orchid to flower. The tiny plant was wild collected in Papua New Guinea, and it's very rare to see it in flower in cultivation or outside its natural habitat.

But Christmas has come a little early for CUBG's greenhouse team as the plant has just come into bloom. The downside is however, that it absolutely stinks.
In the wild the plant's natural pollinators are carrion flies and beetles, insects that feed on rotting flesh. To attract them, the plant creates a similar smell. In fact it's been likened to "a herd of a thousand dead elephants" and is one of the most overpoweringly smelling plants ever. CUBG aren't newbies when it comes to smelly plants though, and you might remember when they had... Jan 4, 2020
Princess Charlotte Refusing to Give Her Flowers to a Royal Aide Is a Total Mood - HarpersBAZAAR.com
Princess Charlotte is a big fan of flowers. After the royal family attended their annual Christmas Day church service in Sandringham, the Cambridges met with members of the crowd who'd come out to greet them. Little royals Prince George and Princess Charlotte received several gifts from fans, including an inflatable pink flamingo.Charlotte also received an extra special present from a 6-year-old royal fan called James Heather, according to The Mirror. Heather's mother told the site that her son had been "starstruck" by the young princess. Per Heather's mom, "When they left the church, Kate came over and said, 'Are these for Charlotte?' and then James said 'Yes,' and handed them over... Charlotte looked really shy and coy, but you could tell she was happy and then she said 'thank you.'"The Mirror shared photos of Charlotte's reaction to being asked to give her flowers to a royal aide. Needless to say, she did not look impressed, and decided to keep hold of her gift.

Charlotte received a lot of attention from well-wishers in the crowd, and seemed to be a natural when it came to meeting her fans. But no-one messes with Princess Charlotte's flowers, okay?

At Millbrook Farm in Concord, an early Christmas miracle - The Boston Globe
Colonials. If you know where you’re going, you’ll find it, after a series of right turns, tucked back on the Cambridge Turnpike before the road abruptly closes to anyone passing through.The family-run nursery — which specializes in flowers and hanging plants in the spring, pumpkins and mums in the fall, and Christmas trees and wreaths in the winter — has survived its share of troubles.Sal Giurleo, 80, the brusque family patriarch, started the business 31 years ago, following in the footsteps of his father, an Italian immigrant who grew vegetables for First National grocery stores in the 1940s and ’50s. Big-box stores like Home Depot have taken a bite out of the gardening industry. For small growers, such as the Giurleos, it’s harder than ever to compete.But this year has been their worst. When construction began on the Cambridge Turnpike this spring, sales at Millbrook Farm plummeted. Although part of the turnpike remained open, roadwork made it virtually impassable. Construction vehicles and machinery frequently blocked both lanes. Until recently, the road was dug up and unpaved.AdvertisementOne longtime customer, Gail Keane, a local realtor, likened the turnpike to the twisted and treacherous Ho Chi Minh Trail. “You cou...

But this foliage is glass — really old glass.

Shell Chemical at Rockefeller Center). I dated Dan that summer, before we went to our respective homes for a couple of weeks, met up again in Cambridge, and married at the end of October, 1965. Our first son, Jonathan, was born in Saratoga Springs on May 17, 1966 during my senior year, and our second son Stephen was born three years later in Boston. Dan and I lived in Westgate, MIT married student housing in Cambridge while I was a graduate student at Northeastern University in Boston, and Dan at MIT. Dan jokes that our kids went through college twice, once with us and once without us.”
22-year old Lois’ Northeastern Ph.D. research in experimental psychology used a stimulator, eye movement detection system, and electrodes coupled to a PDP8I computer system to record and process electrophysiological responses to uncover relationships between visual evoked cortical potentials and paced saccadic displacements of stimuli. Later, as a professor at Texas A&M University during 1972-76, also a wife and young mother raising two young boys, she pioneered use of eye movement tracking cameras to investigate factors affecting conspicuity for pilot landing systems while a visiting faculty fellow at the NASA Ames Research Center in Moffett Field, California. Her research at Texas A&M spanned a diverse range of fields including perceptual stability, the relationship between eye movements and reversable figures, visual search, visual electrophysiology, and water use and water conservation.
In 1977 Lois left Texas A&M to join the Human Factors Engineering Group, Loop Transmission Division at Bell Laboratories in Whippany, New Jersey, as a Member of the Technical Staff (MTS) where she pioneered human factors support, and methods for overcoming interface problems in the engineering, development and evaluation of new apparatus for outside plant craft. She went on to join the Distributed Computer Systems Research Department of Bell Labs at Murray Hill, N.J., in 1982, earning a master’s equivalent in computer science in the Bell Labs in-house curriculum. Her work with John O. Limb led to the seminal invention of protocols for simultaneously transmitting voice and data over a local area network or the internet (U.S. Pat. 4,581,735).
Lois went on to develop UNIX networking software as a member of the Unix Development Laboratory at Murray Hill. When divestiture finally split the Bell System, Lois became a Systems Engineer in the BELLCORE Integrated Planning and Engineering Department where she did engineering and user interface design for software tools and plant electronics inventory databases to mechanize the planning, and engineering of the parent Bell operating companies’ network facilities.
In 1988 Lois joined Pacific Bell (Pacbell) in San Ramon, California, and managed the company’s human factors group until Pacific Bell was acquired by SBC Corporation (later AT&T) in 1997. Her group was a center for process reengineering, and user interface design of consumer, business, and internal support services. At Pacific Bell, Lois pioneered designs, systems and testing for customer care support centers, IT requirements processes, and numerous software design and evaluation methodologies for Windows, Apple, Unix, and Web-based products, and human interface design.
When Pacific Bell was acquired by SBC, Lois retired and joined Oracle to manage a team of graphics, interaction designers, and usability engineers charged with the design of data warehousing products. At Oracle she also played a lead role ... Feb 28, 2019
