CAROLINE CAMERON: What to buy the gardeners in your life
N.S., which utilizes a network of local farmers to maintain and produce heritage varieties and unusual vegetables and flowers. A quick google for Nova Scotia seeds also showed Halifax Seed Company, Annapolis Seeds and the Incredible Seed Company. Speaking of Googling, you can always google ‘gifts for gardeners’ and find lots of ideas there.Other useful gifts? I am always wearing out gardening gloves - the thin ones with a rubber grip work best for me, and I can’t get enough good socks (wool or smartwool), since gardening is hard on them. Gardening knee pads have been a godsend to me, and I love to have a few big baskets for harvest, beautiful flower pots for the doorstep, and of course, a really good wheel barrow is an essential.If you’re shopping for children, it’s great to give gifts like seed kits, gardening tools or books on growing, because they encourage a hobby that promotes exercise and healthy eating.A gift certificate for a garden designer/consultant, or garden helper is good for winter planning and spring cleanup, or to help with a specific project. My favourite idea was shared with me by a friend - she gets a load of manure from her husband every year. There’s a few ways you could interpret that, but don’t worry - the serious gardener knows that it’s worth its weight in gold!Caroline Cameron lives in Strathlorne, Inverness County. She offers gardening and guiding services around Cape Breton Island. She welcomes your gardening comments and questions at firstname.lastname@example.org and on Facebook at Nature/Nurture Gardening & Hiking. (Cape Breton Post)Jul 27, 2017

KoKo Mod Floral Design blooms on Portland Street
But the dream of opening her own flower shop didn’t bring her to Nova Scotia—the film industry did. “I’m doing this because I’m a product of the Nova Scotia film tax credit cut,” she says of her latest venture. “This is how I stay in Nova Scotia.”
Stepping away from film, Romanchuk got back into the flower world through working in wholesale, and eventually selling her own bouquets and arrangements as KoKo Mod Floral Design at farmers’ markets—a move that inspired her to open her own shop at 158 Portland Street (next to curated second-hand shop, Room 152).
“It was really interesting to me coming from a busy economy like Calgary. It had just boomed, there was money everywhere and people didn’t think twice about spending a couple of hundred dollars on flowers,” she says. “I really had to dial it back and learn and understand the industry here.”
The bricks-and-mortar KoKo Mod, which she aims to open by early April, will sell plants, flowers and handmade gifts, and focus on modern, out-of-the-box design. “I approach my work from an artistic viewpoint, it takes me a long time to put an order of flowers together,” says Romanchuk. “I love looking at the world through curious, questioning eyes. And I love sparking that in people. I’m passionate about not just flowers, but being abl... (The Coast Halifax)Feb 3, 2016
What are they thinking? Teenagers, naked photos and cyberbullying
It’s not just illegal conduct, it’s conduct that can make a huge difference in the life of the person affected.”
The RCMP in Nova Scotia say a 15-year-old girl allegedly sent a naked image of herself to a boy in the Windsor area. He is accused of sending it to another teenage girl who then allegedly posted it on a chat website. She is also charged with publication of child porn. Police say all three teens know each other, and their identities are protected under the Youth Criminal Justice Act.
Parsons was 17 when she was taken off life support after attempting suicide in 2013. Her death drew national attention after her family alleged she was sexually assaulted at the age of 15 in November 2011 and then bullied after a photo of the incident was shared online.
Similarly, Amanda Todd, 15, took her life at her Port Coquitlam, B.C., home in 2012 after an explicit photo of her was shared on Facebook.
British Columbia’s privacy and children’s watchdogs submitted a joint report to the provincial legislature in November, calling for a co-ordinated, cross-ministry strategy to prevent online harassment.
“The high-profile suicides of recent years of Canadian teenagers _ including B.C.’s Amanda Todd _ appeared to be a response to particularly vicious cyberbullying,” the report said.
“These tragic cases, and many other instances of exploitation of young people, have brought the issue of cyberbullying to the forefront of public consciousness.”
Kristen Loyst, spokeswoman for the Annapolis Valley Regional School Board in Nova Scotia, said she could not release any details about the teens involved, the school they attend or their status as students, citing privacy concerns.
“We are taking this matter … very seriously,” she said.
“In situations like these, we provide support and guidance to students and we do have ongoing instruction on proper di... (News1130)Feb 3, 2016
Dean's Flowers owner has thorny experience with Google AdWords
Three other businesses, that read as Local Dean Florist, Halifax Flowers Delivery and Nova Scotia Florists are top searches that appear on the page.
"When people do a Google search [for Dean's Flowers] a website that looks like it should be us and says it's locally owned and operated comes up so they place their order," said Holly Winchester, owner of Dean's Flowers, about flowershopping.com.
Winchester said she hears from customers who mistakenly do business with other sites after a bad experience, either with the quality of their order or paying in U.S. dollars for what they believe is a Canadian sale.
"When people are dissatisfied with the service [from these other companies] they call us to complain and they say I ordered a $100 flower arrangement and you charged me $135," said Winchester.
Google AdWords give some a leg up
The first three sites that pop up have purchased Google AdWords, a feature sold by Google that allows companies to purchase key search words, which give them prominence in Google searches.
That's the main reason Dean's Flowers is fourth on the list when customers try to find it online.
"If you scroll down the web page you might find us but people think when they see this website that they're on our site," said Winchester.
Peter Sickles, owner of Alphasearch, a search engine optimization company, told CBC News there is nothing illegal about what the other companies are doing.
