Corpse flower at The Huntington makes us ask, why do we like stinky things?

A stench, often likened to rotting meat, is brewing at The Huntington in San Marino in the form of a strange and rare corpse flower. Such flowers’ stinky qualities evolved over time to attract pollinators — such as sweat bees, flesh flies and carrion beetles — who usually lay eggs on rotting animals in the wild, said Brandon Tam, orchid collection specialist at The Huntington. Because these pollinators come out at the night, corpse flowers strategically release their stench most strongly at the ...

Every Roman Emperor: A Video Timeline Moving from Augustus to the Byzantine Empire’s Last Ruler, Constantine XI

Famed Roman orator and consul Cicero is celebrated as a staunch defender of the Republic, and of traditional Roman morality and civic virtues. He was also a shrewd opportunist who survived the Republic’s demise and lived to tell about it, although he supported Julius Caesar’s rival Pompey in the contest for control of Rome. When Caesar became a dictator, he forgave Cicero. And when Caesar was murdered, Cicero applauded: Our tyrant deserved his death for having made an exception of the on...
