At William and Mary, plants an inspiration for green energy - Daily PressTuesday, June 13, 2017
His inspiration? Plants and the way they use photosynthesis to convert the sun's rays into a natural chemical fuel.An assistant professor at the College of William and Mary in Williamsburg, McNamara is one of a number of scientists around the world drawing inspiration from plants to try to develop workable artificial photosynthesis."We're trying to come up with a different way to harvest solar energy," McNamara said.This is not the traditional solar energy that uses photovoltaic solar cells and batteries for energy storage. That system becomes less efficient every time the sun stops shining. And the batteries?"Samsung has shown us recently that they can explode," McNamara said.With artificial photosynthesis, as his graduate student Nicholas Race recently explained, you're basically using "solar energy to split water into hydrogen and oxygen. And when you do that, the hydrogen gas can be used as a fuel source."Race is a 23-year-old from Orange County, N.Y.In chemistry speak, the key components of artificial photosynthesis are water, a chromophore, a catalyst and an electron donor. Add light and, voila, you're making hydrogen, McNamara said. Even better, when you burn that hydrogen to get energy, you're left with a valuable byproduct: clean water.The long-term goal in artificial photosynthesis research is a device that will split water into hydrogen and oxygen indefinitely and cheaply with little maintenance."And... http://www.dailypress.com/news/science/dp-nws-evg-artificial-photosynthesis-20170527-story.html
From flowers to festivals Judges picked to evaluate 2019 Rose Parade floats have unique backgroundsMonday, October 01, 2018
The trio that will decide which floats are best in this year’s Rose Parade consists of a celebrity wedding planner, the Kentucky Derby Festival CEO and a florist who used to design floats herself.The Tournament of Roses each year selects several people to judge the 45-or-so floats based on criteria including design, floral craftsmanship, animation, thematic interpretation and color presentation. This year’s theme is “The Melody of Life.”This year’s judges are wedding planner Preston Bailey, Kentucky Derby Festival CEO Michael E. Berry and floral designer Kimberly Oldis.Bailey’s lavish celebrations heavily feature floral design. His clients have included Oprah Winfrey, Ivanka Trump and Liza Minnelli. He says he tries to create drama with natural beauty in his wedding and event designs — seemingly a prime fit for the Rose Parade’s celebration of all things floral.“My favorite way to wow the guest is to create something they’ve never seen before,” he said in an interview with The Knot. “Any wedding or any event is about transporting the... http://www.pasadenastarnews.com/from-flowers-to-festivals-judges-picked-to-evaluate-2019-rose-parade-floats-have-unique-backgrounds

Growing with the Times: How Local Plant and Garden Companies Adapt to ChangeTuesday, July 03, 2018
A lingering winter chill squeezed the busy spring season for Central Kentucky’s plant and garden businesses into a few short yet robust weeks this year. But Lexington’s local garden centers, greenhouse nurseries and landscaping companies, many of which are multigenerational family businesses, are well-versed at adapting to changing conditions, whether they be market or nature-driven. A few have been doing so for more than a century.
“It was like we went straight from winter to summer,” said Janna Pemberton Schmidt, who runs Pemberton Greenhouses with her siblings, Ashley Pemberton Herndon and Colin Pemberton, and her husband, Jeff Schmidt. “It’s been a strong but fast year, because of the late freeze.”
The plastic-covered greenhouses at Pemberton, located off Georgetown Road, are loaded with cascading hanging baskets and long rows of bright geraniums, begonias and other popular blooming stock this time of year, along with packed tables of tropical palms, orchids and ferns. In July, the nursery will begin tendi... http://smileypete.com/business/growing-with-the-times/
WKU to close down the WKU Floral Shop next week - College Heights HeraldTuesday, May 01, 2018
WKU, said the charge to close the Floral Shop was led by Warren County Judge-Executive Michael Buchanon. Buchanon, according to business registration information filed with the Kentucky secretary of state's office, is the president of Deemer Floral Co., a local floral shop on Lehman Avenue in Bowling Green. Buchanon publicly commented on McKinney's status and said all the privately owned florists in the region have opposed WKU and "their publicly funded Flower Shop competing against privately funded taxpaying businesses." He said this feud has been ongoing and dates back to former President Gary Ransdell who, he said, often dismissed the objections of local flower shop owners. "WKU’s Flower Shop has had the use of publicly owned building facilities, floral products, equipment and supplies paid for with mine and your tax dollars, and delivered in University owned delivery vans with Official State license tags. - all paid for with taxes you paid.," Buchanon said in his comment. The Floral Shop is a revenue dependent program and these programs generate funds independently from the university. For the 2017-18 fiscal year, the shop was budgeted to generate and spend $275,000, according to the university budget.Buchanon also pushed back on the assertion made by McKinney that the shop's closure came as a result of Buchanon asking a favor of Governor Matt Bevin to pressure the university to close the shop. Buchanon said Bevin had nothing to do with the situation. The Herald has filed an open records request for email correspondence between Buchanon and the governor, as well as those in the governor's office, and reached out to his office for comment.
