Arabi Flower Shop News
Former Edmonton flower shop owner sent to prison for sex crimes - CBC.caFriday, May 29, 2020
Mah told the court. The older boy told a doctor about the incidents in November 2017. Police obtained a video statement from the teen with the help of an Arabic speaking police officer. Zetouni, 54, was arrested on Nov. 28, 2017, and was originally charged with three counts each of sexual assault, sexual interference and invitation to sexual touching. The remaining charges were stayed after he pleaded guilty to two counts of invitation to sexual touching. "The accused knew or ought to have known that the boys were under the age of 16 and were not capable of consenting to the sexual acts," the Crown said. The boys were not in court to hear the guilty pleas and did not file victim impact statements. 'Remorseful and ashamed' Zetouni's lawyer told the court his client came to Canada in 2003 and is a Canadian citizen who has been employed for most of his adult life. "He is remorseful and ashamed of what occurred," Mark Jordan said. "He feels terrible about what the complainants in this case went through. He also feels terrible for what he's put his family through." The court was told Zetouni and his wife separated in 2015 and his two children live with their mother. His family became aware of the charges after police issued a news release that included his photo. "He tells me that his father had open heart surgery after he learned the charges his son was facing," Jordan told the judge. "He tells me that his children have had issues with members of the cultural community who are aware of his arrest. Mr. Zetouni tells me he was also threatened while in custody immediately after his arrest." Accused wanted publication ban on his name Zetouni was originally scheduled to enter his guilty pleas on Dec. 2, but changed his mind when he saw a journalist in the courtroom. Jordan told Justice Brian Burrows his client wanted to request a publication ban, so his name would not appear in the media. The application for the publication ban was supposed to be heard on Friday. CBC News hired a lawyer to oppose the application, but right before the hearing Zetouni changed his mind. "Mr. Zetouni's original desire to pursue a publication ban in this case was mostly in order to protect his family, rather than himself," Jordan said.

Master instructor shows art of flower arranging - Budapest TimesTuesday, March 19, 2019
Sogetsu Headquarters, the Japan Foundation, Ikebana International and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs. Her diverse experiences outside Japan stretch from Bolivia to Saudi Arabia, Papua New Guinea to India.
She runs classes such as "Teaching Ikebana in English" and "International Class for Non-Japanese-speaking People". She conducts special workshops for teachers at the Sogetsu School of Ikebana in Tokyo and teaches students at her atelier in Meguro, Tokyo.
Ms Fukushima is a member of the Sogetsu Teachers Association, a director of the Sogetsu Foundation and a member of the Ikebana International Tokyo Founding Chapter and Nihon Ikebana Geijutsu Kyokai.
Born in Tokyo soon after the end of World War II, Ms Fukushima was the sheltered only child of older parents. She was 14 when she began her Sogetsu ikebana lessons. With the joy of young life, she happily embraced the school’s nonconformist outlook, introduced by its founder, Sofu Teshigahara. At 19 she received her first teaching diploma, "not unusually young if you are interested and keep studying," she says.
Her parents wanted her, as she graduated from the Foreign Language Department of the University of the Sacred Heart in Japan, to stay at home and prepare for marriage. She wanted to work. Putting together her love of flower arranging and her fluency in English, she began to make her way to an outstanding career.
She found an opening to teach non-Japanese students at the famed Goto florist shop in the Tokyo district of Roppongi. She began her own class there. Until then, her only experience was in assisting. "I had no idea how to ask people to come to my class," she says. However, the place was right, the time was right, and she was doing what interested her and associating with the congenial people she sought.
A dozen years later the Japan Foundation chose her to go on a lecture-demonstration tour of six South American countries and three Asian countries. https://www.budapesttimes.hu/2019/02/19/master-instructor-shows-art-flower-arranging
Let Flowers Sell Your HomeTuesday, August 28, 2018
Southwest, substitute with carefree day lilies, which don't mind the relentless heat and drought.7. Jasmine - The common jasmine we love for its sweet perfume is not a frost-hardy plant, but an Arabian jasmine plant will flower throughout the summer in a partly sunny spot. Grow the vine in a large pot that you can move indoors for showings, and the flowers will emit a soft perfume in your home. For a hardier specimen, plant the look-a-like Sweet Autumn Clematis, which has similar-looking fragrant flowers.8. Pelargoniums - Also known as geraniums, this favorite bedding plant is a natural choice to brighten borders, porches, and pool areas. A full sun exposure with good air circulation is a must for these annuals, so if your lot is shady substitute with the perennial Cranesbill Geranium.9. Hydrangeas - Plant a compact type like 'Bombshell' by your front door, or anchor the corner of your landscape with the large shrub, 'Grandiflora.' Blue varieties need acidic soil to produce blue flowers, so keep some aluminum sulfate on hand if your hydrangea flowers are pinker than you'd like.10. Sunflowers - A sunflower patch ties together a cottage garden the way few other flowers can. In addition to making a robust floral statement from a distance, you can use sunflowers to screen an unattractive utility box or air conditioning unit. Sunflowers grow in all climates, but they need time to mature if starting from seed.There you have the 'Top 10' bloomers that potential homeowners say enhance the image when shopping for a home. A splash of color with a touch of fragrance before listing undoubtedly can result in more green in your wallet.

Master florist to the stars opens store beneath Jim Bowie Live Oak in Opelousas - The AdvocateThursday, March 12, 2020
They also stock items created by local and regional artists and artisans like handmade stationery and soaps. Already planned for the next few months are workshops and pop-up shops featuring Louisiana artists teaching about stationery, succulents, sushi and glass creation. The workshops and pop-ups will be held in the shop's courtyard beneath the historic Jim Bowie oak. The event schedule should soon be up on their website mossneworleans.com, Mashburn said."Before we opened, people were asking what we were going to do with the oak. They were worried we'd do something with the oak, but I love it. We've only been here a short time, but I feel like it's a neighbor and an old friend," Mashburn said. https://www.theadvocate.com/acadiana/news/business/article_054285ce-49ac-11ea-bcd6-43494a29a1c0.html

A funeral director for the community - Dallas VoiceTuesday, November 19, 2019
Lewis said they ate dinner, watched a movie but he left, and they didn’t see each other for another four years.LaFleur was diagnosed with cancer and then he left for Louisiana to take care of his mother. When he returned to Dallas, they met up again on MySpace and have been together ever since.A few years ago, Lewis, who’s a member of the Turtle Creek Chorale, was talking to another member, who is also a funeral director, about how hard it was working for a funeral home owned by a large corporation.“I still want my own place,” he said.“I know a place in Ferris for sale,” the other member told him.A year passed before he decided to at least check out Ferris. The funeral home was still for sale, so on a Sunday morning, he drove to Ferris just to take a look even though he knew the place wouldn’t be open.As he was driving through town, though, he noticed signs for an open house. He decided to stop in and maybe get a feel for the town from the real estate agent.She asked what he was looking for in a house, and he said he was actually interested in Green Funeral Home that was for sale but stopped by the open house to get some information about Ferris from someone local. The agent told him her father owned the funeral home, and she called her dad and arranged for Lewis to meet him.Six months later, Lewis and LaFleur were in the funeral business.Their goal, LaFleur said, is to outgrow the current building within five years. “That means we have four years left,” Lewis said.While Ferris is growing quickly — 150 homes are already under construction on the west side of I-45, and T. Boone Pickens’ widow owns a ranch on the east side of the highway that she plans to develop — the couple knows they can’t rely on business just from the Ferris area.So, Lewis said, anyone was welcome to come to Ferris and use their facility, and they can handle a funeral anywhere. Not that Ferris is that far from the Metroplex — from downtown Dallas, it’s about the same distance as Plano. It’s just over the Ellis County line, four miles south of the Belt Line Road exit.Green Funeral Home can handle embalming, whether the family is using his facility or not. He can deliver the casket to any church for a funeral service, and if the family chooses cremation, Lewis said he can do that, too.Lewis said they’ve driven as far as Houston to pick up a body, so they can certainly perform a funeral anywhere in the Dallas area.While the current Green Funeral Home building is a few blocks from the town square and can hold about 120 for a service, Lewis said they also hold services in area churches all the time.The Rev. Neil Thomas, senior pastor at Cathedral of Hope, said he was glad to have the services of a gay funeral director available in the area. https://dallasvoice.com/a-funeral-director-for-the-community/
Most Louisiana horticulture license exams now computer based - WBRZTuesday, October 22, 2019
BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) - Agriculture and Forestry Commissioner Mike Strain says most Louisiana horticulture license exams are now given by computer, streamlining the process. He says it used to take a week or more to get scores for tests taken at department satellite offices, because forms were sent to Baton Rouge for grading. Strain says applicants must still be tested at department offices, but the results are available immediately. A news release Friday said six of the seven professional horticulture exams are now on computer, and the landscape architecture exam is in final development and testing. Those on computer are landscape horticulturist, landscape irrigation contractor, arborist, utility arborist, retail florist and wholesale florist. Department spokeswoman Laura Pursnell-Lindsay says tests aren't required for nursery certificates and permits for dealers in cut flowers and nursery stock. https://www.wbrz.com/news/most-louisiana-horticulture-license-exams-now-computer-based/
