    The oldest evidence of sexual reproduction in a flowering plant - dating back 100 million years - has been found in Burma. The team discovered a cluster of 18 tiny flowers in a piece of amber; one of them was in the process of making new seeds for the next generation. Flowering plants caused an enormous change in biodiversity on Earth.

    Diesel pollution makes it harder for honeybees to find flowers by changing the chemical make-up of their scent, scientists have found. Honeybees use floral odors to find flowers that will give the best yields of pollen and nectar, but diesel fumes can affect their ability to locate and recognize the plants, potentially affecting pollination and ultimately global food security. British researchers took eight chemicals found in the odor of oilseed rape flowers and mixed them both with clean air, which had no impact on the scent, and air containing diesel fumes. When mixed with diesel fumes, six of the eight...
  • Bill Clinton’s ex-lover: Hillary is bisexual (Barf alert - don't drink or eat while reading this)

    The Daily Caller ^ | 9-19-2013 | Taylor Bigler
    One of former President Bill Clinton’s ex-mistresses, Gennifer Flowers, claims that Bill told her Hillary Clinton was bisexual. Flowers, who hasn’t been relevant since 1992, came out during Clinton’s first presidential campaign and said that the two had had a 12-year affair while he was the governor of Arkansas. Clinton has long maintained that he only had one sexual encounter with Flowers. But in an interview with The Daily Mail published Thursday, Flowers, now 63 and definitely not desperate for fame, claims that she would still be with Clinton — “the love of [her] life” — had it not been...

Two weeks ago, I wrote that the transit system would look silly if it let perish 1,000 flowers planted secretly at the Dupont Circle station by local garden artist Henry Docter, the self-described Phantom Planter. I feared that Metro would merely neglect the flowers. Instead, last Sunday, it sent workmen to yank them out.

    The oldest example of grave flowers has been discovered in Israel. An ancient burial pit dating to nearly 14,000 years ago contained impressions from stems and flowers of aromatic plants such as mint and sage. The new find "is the oldest example of putting flowers and fresh plants in the grave before burying the dead," said study co-author Dani Nadel, an archaeologist at the University of Haifa in Israel. snip...

Ferguson said he sent a March 28 letter to owner Barronelle Stutzman asking her to reconsider and supply flowers to customer Robert Ingersoll. Through an attorney, Stutzman declined to change her position. “As Attorney General, it is my job to enforce the laws of the state of Washington,” said Ferguson. “Under the Consumer Protection Act, it is unlawful to discriminate against customers based on sexual orientation.

    Police are hunting a woman who was captured on camera appearing to steal flowers from a schoolboy’s grave. She was photographed at the grave of 11 year-old, Robert Stringer, who died in a car accident in 1980, after the boy’s family installed a motion-sensing camera in a tree. It followed a string of thefts of floral tributes at Rippleside Cemetery in Barking, Essex. His family have released the pictures in an attempt to track her down. Steve Rose, 37, of Walthamstow, east London, who installed the camera, said: “I was only six when he died. My aunt, who died two...

For those who don't remember: Ira Einhorn was on stage hosting the first Earth Day event at the Fairmount Park in Philadelphia on April 22, 1970. Seven years later, police raided his closet and found the "composted" body of his ex-girlfriend inside a trunk. A self-proclaimed environmental activist, Einhorn made a name for himself among ecological groups during the 1960s and '70s by taking on the role of a tie-dye-wearing ecological guru and Philadelphia's head hippie.

    OSLO (Reuters) – Flowers picked up to 150 years ago in Victorian England show that old collections of pressed plants around the world can help the study of climate change, scientists said on Wednesday. Ecologists compared samples of early spider orchids, held in collections with notes showing the exact day in spring when they were picked in southern England from 1848-1958, and dates when the same flower blossomed in the wild from 1975-2006. "Warmer years were associated with earlier flowering ... In both cases flowering was advanced by about six days per 1 degree Celsius (1.8 Fahrenheit) rise in average...

And their fragrance may be lost forever. Science and Technology Professor Emeritus at Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia, Dr Abdul Latif Mohamad, said genetically modified flowers might be the way out. Climate change is also the reason Kuala Lumpur City Hall is increasingly turning to shady trees, because flowers which previously formed the centrepiece of its beautification programme have been wilting fast.

    Men should buy women flowers. They are colorful. They smell nice. And without them, flora would never get laid. To many, purchasing flowers is cliché or corny or tacky. And to others, it's an outdated ritual in our modern era of gender equality. I'd like to address the men reading this (all five of you): buy the broads flowers. Trust me. And now to all the women reading, who outnumber us dudes 100 to 1: allow the dorks in your life to buy you flowers. Trust me.

    TOKYO (Reuters) – A Tokyo district plagued with burglaries has turned to planting flowers to beautify its streets and help stamp out crime. "'Operation Flower' began about three years ago. By planting flowers facing the street, more people will be keeping an eye out while taking care of the flowers or watering them," said Kiyotaka Ohyagi, a Suginami City official. "The best way to prevent crime is to have more people on the lookout." Suginami, with a population of 528,800, saw a record 1,710 break-ins in 2002.

Now, I don't plant things. I simply let all the flora at this place out in the middle of nowhere grow as it wishes, when it wishes. The William Rivers Pitt, for example, grows lavishly with "volunteer" tomatoes and catnip, and given the nature of the William Rivers Pitt, it's usually a darker green than similar foliage on the ordinary soil here.

Here is a great test case for evolution. Angiosperms comprise a huge, diverse population of organisms. There should be an ample fossil record, and many genes to decipher. Let’s see if the optimistic claims are rooted in evidence...

Both have been "vilified" over the years, Flowers said, and "we have both agreed that it's a shame that more of the 'Clinton Women' didn't get together long ago.
