(Sherry LaVars/Marin Independent Journal)  A Monarch butterfly lands on a plant at West End Nursery in San Rafael on Tuesday, Aug. 30, 2022. Marin County is banning local nurseries from selling tropical milkweed in order to protect the dwindling populations of monarch butterflies. (Sherry LaVars/Marin Independent Journal)  Marin County has become one of the first counties in California to ban the sale of a weed that researchers say threatens the survival of the dwindling western monarch butterfly. The decision by Marin Agricultural Commissioner Stefan Parnay this month to ban the sale of tropical milkweed, known as Asclepias curassavica, comes after the California Department of Agriculture recently recategorized the species as a noxious weed that is known to cause harm to the environment or economy. The designation allows county agricultural commissioners to ban on the sale or propagation of the plant. “We want to thank the...

    (CNN)After nearly half a century, the mystery of Manu is finally solved. In 1973, scientist Robin Foster discovered a plant with bright orange fruit shaped like paper lanterns inside Peru's Manu National Park. It's now been classified as Aenigmanu alvareziae, or Mystery of Manu, according to a paper authored by Foster and published Wednesday in the journal Taxon. Foster collected samples of the colorful tree on his trip to show to other researchers, and no one could identify the specimen.The plant's characteristics could place it into multiple families, one of the classification levels of plants, said Foster, a retired curator at Chicago's Field Museum and a researcher with the Smithsonian Tropical Research Institute.The tropical plant, known as the "Mystery of Manu," took scientists nearly 50 years to name.Read More"Usually, I can tell the family by a quick glance, but damned if I could place this one," Foster said in a statement.It took decades of research to classify the tropical plant because it couldn't be delivered to the correct specialist -- because scientists didn't know which family it belonged to, said...

    Miami : With water, yeast, hops and barley, the “La Tropical” beer is made, which is now made in Miami. In Cuba, the factory was founded in 1888 and was part of the brewing industry that over the years became a proud product national. Manny Portuondo, owner of La Tropical, assures that by the 1960s it was the largest beer producer and exceeded 60% of Cuba’s production, but all the families involved in the business left the island for Miami. Manny remembers that with the brand gone, in 1998 he got involved in the difficult process of recovering it, that required more than 20 years of effort and tenacity. “I have become an expert in the La Tropical brewery in Cuba as well as where all the records were.” About 40 employees make up the La Tropical team, one of them is Fernando Finol, production manager, who has had a professional beer career. “It has been a great challenge for me to be able to work on the design of recipes that are tropicalized for the palate...
