Smyrnium olusatrum

Smyrnium olusatrum, common name Alexanders, is an edible cultivated flowering plant of the family Apiaceae. It is known as alisanders, horse parsley, smyrnium, it was known to Pliny the Elder. Alexanders is a stout biennial growing to 150 centimetres high, with a solid stem which becomes hollow and grooved with age; the leaves are bluntly toothed, the segments ternately divided the segments flat, not fleshy. Alexanders are a wild plant in Britain and other parts of Europe and are found among the sites of medieval monastery gardens. Alexanders is able to thrive farther north; the plant was introduced to the UK by the Romans, who called it the ‘pot herb of Alexandria.’ Every part of the plant is edible. The flowers are yellow-green in colour and arranged in umbels, its fruits are black, it flowers from April to June. Alexanders is intermediate in flavor between parsley, it blanched, or not, but it has now been replaced by celery. The black seeds have a taste, described as both spicy or peppery, they were used in medieval cuisine in place of a bitter type of celery.

One 17th century text describes young shoots used in salads or a "vernal pottage" and an early 18th century recipe recorded by Caleb Threlkeld for Irish Lenten Potage includes alexanders and nettles. Alexanders fell out of favour in the 18th century after celery started being mass produced to replace wild herbs and vegetables. Alexanders are not used as a food product in the modern era, but have found some renewed use in exotic "foraged" food recipes and restaurants. Look for this tall plant on cliff paths. Roman soldiers would carry the plant on long journeys, as they could eat the leaves, the stems, the roots, the buds. Alexanders is a feed source much appreciated by horses. Dispersed in England and Ireland. Common in waste ground and edges of fields near the shore. Ireland: Counties Down and Londonderry and throughout most of Ireland, it is used as traditional medicine in China

Francine Busby

Francine Pocino Busby is a former member of the school board in Cardiff and was the chair of the San Diego County Democratic Party. She has four times been the Democratic candidate for Congress in California's 50th congressional district, in North San Diego County. In 2004, she ran unsuccessfully against incumbent Republican Congressman Randy "Duke" Cunningham. Before his term was up, Cunningham resigned due to his conviction on bribery charges, Busby ran in the June 2006 special election to replace him, she ran unsuccessfully against Bilbray in 2010. Busby was born in Los Angeles, California, to an Italian American family, grew up in nearby Arcadia, she graduated with a BA in Humanities from UC Irvine. From 1974 -- 1981, Busby was a travel marketer for the Walt Disney Travel Company, she married her husband David Busby in 1978. They had two children and Michael, Busby quit her job to raise them. In 1988 the family moved to California. Busby is fluent in Italian, has written a book on Bosconero, the town of her ancestors on her mother's side.

She won $15K and cash and prizes over three days on $ale of the Century between December 24th, 28th, 29th, 1987 She ran two successful school bond campaigns in 1998 and 2000, became president of the Cardiff Education Foundation in 2000, was appointed to fill a vacancy to the Cardiff School Board, and, in 2002, was elected for a full school board term. In January 2013 she was chosen as chair of the San Diego County Democratic Party, she is the executive director of Run Women Run, an organization that trains and supports women candidates for elective office. Busby ran against then-Rep. Duke Cunningham in the 2004 U. S. House election, receiving 36% of the vote to Cunningham's 58%. Cunningham resigned on November 28, 2005, after pleading guilty to federal charges of conspiracy to commit bribery, mail fraud, wire fraud, tax evasion; the initial vote in the special election was held on April 11, 2006. If a single candidate had won a simple majority, he or she would have served out the rest of Cunningham's term.

Busby got the most votes, 43.75 percent, but fell short of the majority necessary to avoid a runoff race. As no candidate won a simple majority, the top vote-getters in each party faced each other in a runoff on June 6, 2006; because the 50th is considered to be a Republican district, it would have been considered major news if Busby won. "This is a biggie," said Carl Luna, a political science professor at San Diego Mesa College. "Everyone is going to be reading the tea leaves as a predictor of November." For that reason, the National Republican Congressional Committee spent $5 million on this race. On June 2, five days before the special congressional election, Busby was participating in a panel discussion with four other presenters who were addressing a Latino audience, she had been invited to explain her position in support of comprehensive immigration reform. The discussion was conducted in Spanish with some translation. During a discussion presented by a fellow panelist about ways to get involved in political action, a man from the back of the room addressed a question to Busby in Spanish.

Busby said, "I didn't hear the entire question, but I understood that he wanted to help and said something about papers. I misspoke by saying. I meant; this was not a discussion about my campaign." Her comments were recorded by a member of the Minutemen. "You can all help--you don't need papers to vote, you don't need to be a registered voter to help." She made this comment in response to a question by a man who asked in Spanish, "I want to help, but I don't have papers." The recording was circulated on radio. In the June 6 runoff, Busby faced the leading vote getter from the two other parties participating: Republican Brian Bilbray and Libertarian Paul King, as well as independent candidate William Griffith. Busby lost to Bilbray 49.3% to 45.5%. Bilbray thereby won the right to finish Cunningham's term, through January 2007. June 6, 2006, was the date of the primary for the November general election. Busby and Bilbray each captured their party's nomination. Bilbray, with the advantage of incumbency, took an early lead.

Both the Cook Political Report and CQPolitics rated the race as Republican Favored. But Busby gained in October for a number of reasons: the general political climate seen as disadvantageous to the GOP, Busby's outraising Bilbray, Bilbray's low profile campaign, on Oct. 23, CQPolitics changed their rating to Leans Republican. Despite these developments, Busby lost to Bilbray in the general election in November, receiving 43% to Bilbray's 53%. Busby formally announced her candidacy in the 2010 race for California's 50th Congressional District at a press conference April 16, 2009 in Encinitas. An incident at a Busby fundraiser in June 2009 created a furor. During a political fundraiser at a home in Cardiff, a neighbor called the San Diego County sheriff's office to complain about noise. Deputy Marshall Abbott entered the home. Deputy Marshall Abbott used pepper spray on some of the guests and called for backup, which included six police cars, a police dog, a helicopter. No charges were filed against the deputy.

The painting illustrates a passage from the Kalevala, the Finnish national epic compiled by Elias Lönnrot in the 19th century; the painting depicts a scene from a poem where the hero Lemminkäinen has died and his mother has dredged the pieces of her son's lifeless body from the river of Tuonela and sewn them together again. She is shown with the body in pietà style, waiting for the bee, a messenger of the god Ukko, to bring her honey from the gods to bring her son to life again

University of Michigan College of Pharmacy

The University of Michigan College of Pharmacy is located on the central campus of the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor. As of 2016 it was tied as the third ranked pharmacy school in the US. Pharmacy was first taught at the University of Michigan in 1868 within the College of Literature and the Arts. A School of Pharmacy, the nation's first school of pharmacy at a state university, was established on December 29, 1876, by Albert B. Prescott; as the first dean, Dr. Prescott introduced the concept of basic science education as a prerequisite to practical training for those pursuing a pharmacy degree. Phi Delta Chi was founded on 2 November 1883 at the College by 11 men, led by Dean Prescott; the fraternity was formed to advance the science of pharmacy and its allied interests, to foster and promote a fraternal spirit among its brothers, now both male and female. In 1916 the school was renamed the College of Pharmacy. Today, the College is a member of the University of Michigan Health System, is accredited by the American Council for Pharmacy Education.

The sisters Amelia and Mary Upjohn, daughters of the founder of the Upjohn Company, graduated in pharmacy in June 1871, just three months after the first two women to receive degrees at the University of Michigan. Other notable graduates of the U-M College of Pharmacy include Josiah K. Lilly, grandson of the founder of the Eli Lilly Company. List of pharmacy schools
