Daily Word in Corpse Flowers, Homeless Haircuts and Vampire Kangaroos
By Joshua Lee [ Sat Jul 30 2016 10:11 AM ]
According to Harvard professor and researcher Howard Gardner, Donald Trump is a “textbook” narcissist. That means he's self-obsessed, arrogant and overly-sensitive. Obviously, the kind of person I want to see in office.
Around 20 prehistoric animal species were discovered during a recent two-week dig in Australia. The coolest one: a fanged kangaroo that ate meat and climbed trees. Those bastards are scary enough as it is. Just think long and hard about that gutting claw they have and how powerful their legs are if you want to keep yourself up at night. Here are some rules for protecting yourself if you ever come into contact with one of these wretched beasts.
In a third hack attack (the first two were committed against the DNC and the DCCC), the groups Fancy Bear and Cozy Bear have now apparently hacked Hilary Clinton's campaign directly. It is believed the attacks are coming from Russia.
The corpse flower (Latin name Amorphophallus titanum, meaning “giant misshapen penis”)is one of the largest and rarest flowering plants in the world. It takes 10 years to go from seed to flower and gets its common name from the godawful smell it produces. There are at least five of them currently blooming, which has botanists confused.
Josh Coombes, a hair stylist living in London, is getting props from the internet for walking the streets and offering free haircuts to the homeless. What a nice guy.

Five Artists Featured at South Broadway's Night of the Arts
Press Release [ Fri Jul 29 2016 12:20 PM ]
The works of five local artists will be on display in South Broadway Cultural Center's spacious gallery at Night of the Arts on Thursday, August 4 from 5-9pm.
A reception for the artists from 5-8pm with light refreshments and live music, and a documentary film screening at 8pm make the evening a don't miss event!
Rebecca Nolda, whose work is shown here, is a Midwesterner who attended Iowa State University, earned her Master of Science in Education from Capella University and her Master of Arts in Studio Art from the University of Minnesota. Moving to New Mexico on a "whim", she soon fell in love with the open spaces, desert and skies of our state. Nolda considers "channels" the pathways that invite us to use her works as a springboard for imagination. The concept of creating "artifacts"-a layering of the seen and the layers underneath that tell stories-evokes a bit of mystery as to what came before. Her work has been exhibited widely in New Mexico, as well as in Minnesota, the Dallas, Texas area, and at UC Berkeley.

By August March [ Thu Jul 28 2016 11:34 AM ]
