Corpse Flower at Orange Coast College

The Amorphophallus titanium plant commonly known as a corpse flower will be a point of interest this coming week at Orange Coast College. The plant is affectionately referred to as “Little Dougie” and some of its species can weigh up to 200 pounds. The Flower will bloom with magenta petals, typically reaching full bloom in the evening and can last between 24-48 hours. The special bloom is a popular attraction for guests to the college who came out 1,000 strong in 2014 to view a corpse flower.

 

The beautiful flower originally is found in Sumatra, an island of Indonesia. The odor of the plant is a result of pollination from symbiotic beetles moving between male and female flowers. Orange Coast College pollinates the flower by hand. For those interested in taking a trip to Orange Coast College are invited to donate $3 to help support the school’s horticulture program.Those who prefer the smell can view a webcam of the plant at orangecoastcollege.edu/corpseflower.

 

The horticulture program is a component of many of the offerings to the Associated Student Body at OCC. This college is primarily a commuter college serving local people and therefore on-campus housing is not available. There is an enrollment of 24,000+ students with the majority of them coming from California.

Louis Chenevert’s Legacy at United Technologies Corporation

United Technologies, or UTC, is focused on the future, and this strategy has worked for them, keeping them alive while other similar companies have failed. Current CEO and chairman Gregory Hayes explains that by investing continually in a way that keeps the future in mind, UTC will stay alive and ahead.

V Pratt & Whitney Geared Turbofan engine is a perfect example of UTC investing in its future. This engine is currently flown in 72 aircraft ranging from 14 different airlines. Twenty years and $10 billion were invested to create this engine in order to reduce emissions, noise, and the amount of fuel burned.

Not only is UTC interested in investing in technology that helps the economy and ensures manufacturing jobs, they also invest in people. An Employee Scholar Program helps send employees to earn degrees in any field they desire, paid for by UTC. 39,000 degrees have been earned since 1994. UTC considers this to be their best investment.

Louis Chenevert, former CEO for UTC, during his tenure he was able to increase appreciation in shareholder value by 200%. Chenevert explains that by serving both military and commercial needs, UTC is able to serve continual business, sheltering it from the usual up and down swings of the market.

Under Chenevert’s direction, focus and imagination were the tools used for allowing UTC to stay ahead and as a result, they are able to profit on each and every step of a product life-cycle. They also involve themselves in giving advice, offering maintenance, and repair services.

Louis Chenevert has learned a lot about great business practices over the years. He worked at General Motors for 14 years. From 1999 through 2006, he served as President for Pratt & Whitney. Later he would serve as Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of UTC. In 2011 Chênevert was awarded a doctorate honoris causa from HEC Montréal.
