Posted: Monday, October 16, 2017

For all of Hawaii’s natural wonders, enjoying a forest here in its native state isn’t easy. You can endure a strenuous hike in the mountains — or you could drive past Hanalei Bay on the North Shore of Kauai to a parcel of magnificent terrain presided over by the lush twin peaks of Makana Mountain. Today, the area comprises the Limahuli Garden & Preserve, a botanical masterpiece housing archaeological sites…

Posted: Monday, October 16, 2017

A group of volunteers were hard at work on Sunday planting trees and plants in a sensory garden where students, many of them disabled, will play, learn and shed their stress.

Posted: Monday, October 16, 2017

The jewelry industry reigned and downtown was vibrant with factories and shops next door to each…

Posted: Monday, October 16, 2017

By Diana LockwoodFor The Columbus Dispatch Even gardeners whose knees go weak at the thought of spring (the first crocuses! the migrating songbirds!) admit that fall has its charms. The pace feels less frenzied, the mosquitoes are disappearing and the harvest — whether of apples or lingering flowers — is gratifying. The weather is often ideal for cleaning up the landscape, assessing the health of your…

Busan Film Review: ‘Glass Garden’ – Variety

Posted: Sunday, October 15, 2017

We’ve all been told that the Lorax speaks for the trees, but Dr. Seuss’s mustachioed conservationist has nothing on the fragile, dendrology-fixated protagonist of “Glass Garden.” A pretty, peculiar fable that slowly takes the term “green-fingered” to alarming extremes, South Korean writer-director Shin Su-won’s fourth feature centers on Jae-yeon (Moon Geon-young), a brilliant but unworldly Ph.D student whose innovative research into human photosynthesis leads her on a deranged quest to…

The robots of the future will hide in your garden under this pulsating silicone skin – The Verge

Posted: Sunday, October 15, 2017

The next generation of soft robots might be able to hide in plain sight, thanks to a newly developed, camouflaging skin that can rapidly transform from a flat silicone sheet to a 3D shape. The new camouflage, described this week in the journal Science, could help surveillance robots take on a texture that lets them blend into the background. But there’s a catch: it can only take on a single…

Transforming the garden state into the pipeline state – Aljazeera.com

Posted: Sunday, October 15, 2017

Whenever someone asks me where I’m from, I tell them, “I’m from the most beautiful place you’ve never heard of – and it’s in New Jersey.” That usually elicits a puzzled look, since, despite its Garden State designation, Jersey isn’t exactly known for its natural beauty (at least not in the popular imagination). But once I explain that I was raised in the Pinelands, things fall into place. The Pinelands…
