Sunflowers dance under the sun to increase growth, says scientists

Body clocks also ticks in this flower and, “It’s the first example of a plant’s clock modulating growth in a natural environment,” UC Davis professor and study co-author Stacey Harmer said. This turning of the flower is actually a result of different sides of the stem elongating at different times of day.
“Growth rates on the east side were high during the day and very low at night, whereas growth rates on the west side were low during the day and higher at night,” the journal notes, hence, “The higher growth rate on the east versus west side of the stem during the day enables the shoot apex to move gradually from east to the west. At night, the higher growth rate on the west side culminates in the apex facing east at dawn.”

A young sunflower plant not only tracks the sun during the day but also reorients at night in anticipation of dawn.
Mature sunflowers respond differently to the sun as it has achieved its full growth and the researchers compared mature flowers facing east with those they turned to face west, and found that the east-facing blooms attracted five times as many helpful pollinators.
“Just like people, plants rely on the daily rhythms of day and night to function,” says Anne Sylvester, director of the National Science Foundation’s Plant Genome Research Program.
Hence, young sunflowers actually dance as each day, when they trace the path of the sun across the sky, turning their faces 180 degrees from east to west.

11-year-old dies after choking on marshmallow, falling in Somerset
Police and a school official say that 11-year-old Azriel Estabrooks died at Hasbro Children's Hospital in Providence on Friday morning.
She had been there since she was found unconscious at a friend's birthday party on Saturday.
"Someone didn't find her in time. Someone didn't realize she was choking on the damn marshmallow," her mother said.
Her mother, Iris Estabrooks, has said that about an hour after she dropped her daughter off, she got a call from the hosts saying Azriel had passed out.
"It was over just like that. Dropped her off at the party. Not even an hour later she gets a call, 'your daughter is unconscious, unresponsive,'" a family friend, Linda Melanson said.
She says no one found her until she was passed out on the floor, and no one realized she was choking.
When rescuers arrived, they found a marshmallow lodged in the girl's throat.
"The EMTs or the paramedics said that she possibly choked on a marshmallow, nobody even knows what happened," Melanson said.
Friends have been making posters for her and others have been dropping off flowers for the family. Now, all the heartbroken family has is each other.
"I'm going to be there to help them get through it. (My Fox Boston)Feb 3, 2016
UMass basketball recruiting: Minutemen add 3-star forward Tyrn Flowers to star-studded 2016 class (report)
Tops in A10 thus far.
— Adam Finkelstein (@AdamFinkelstein) January 12, 2016
Flowers, who according to Finkelstein was deciding between Providence and Maryland, as well, really pushes the team's 2016 class over the top in terms of quality depth. He could easily redshirt once he gets to campus, which might be best for his continued development.
Here's what ESPN had to say about Flowers before the current high school season (and remember, he's only gotten better):
Strengths: Flowers is a classic late bloomer who has grown 4 inches in the last 16 months and may still be growing. He's a left-handed perimeter forward who can play either as a big wing or face-up four with his newfound size, depending on match-ups. He's very long and pretty fluid covering the court. He has a compact shooting stroke and soft touch from behind the three-point line and is equally capable of making some tough pull-ups off the dribble. He can surprise you with some plays up above the rim and generally speaking has a lot of upside still left to discover.
Weaknesses: He isn't a great athlete, specifically with regard to his foot speed. He's not going to go by too many people off the dribble or change direction off the bounce and so when he looks to create his own shot it usually results in a tough two. Defensively, he's fairly limited laterally and so he has to rely on his length to cover up for some of those deficiencies. His motor and overall sense of urgency could stand to improve as well.
Bottom Line: A late blooming, big lefty forward with a natural skill set, Flowers has a significant upside. He's already made great strides in the last year or so and should only continue to get better for the foreseeable future.
Back in June, CoxHub.com went into some detail on Flowers' growth, calling him a "late bloomer":
As a big lefty wing with a soft touch on his three ball and some mid-range game to match, Flowers is a super intriguing guy, but what's really scary is the fact that this is all so new to him, you can see he doesn't realize how good he is, or could be, just yet.
The future was already sweet for UMass basketball fans. A trip to the dentist might be in order now that Flowers has become the cherry on top.
