Dog Paw Made From Roses

NBA Star Tristan Thompson is lifting his pregnant girlfriend Khloé Kardashian‘s spirits up a day after she announced the death of her beloved pet Gabbana.

The Keeping Up with the Kardashians reality star, 33, was surprised with bouquets of roses that were arranged in the shape of a paw print in memory of the 14-year-old pet.

The mother-to-be, who is seven-months along in her pregnancy, shared a photo of the sweet gift on Snapchat and Instagram Story Wednesday with the caption, “My love @realtristan13,” with paw print emojis.

“I love you baby! Thank you for being so thoughtful,” Kardashian wrote in a video of the floral display on social media.

The Good American mogul took custody of Gabbana, then 11, after her mom and stepfather Kris and Caitlyn Jenner (formerly known as Bruce Jenner) split. The black Labrador, which often appeared on the E! reality series, was originally adopted along with another pup, Dolce, a Chihuahua that was later killed by a coyote.

Rose Growers Gearing Up For Valentines Day

Sean MurphyComment

For many growers producing higher volume, but maintaining quality and uniform bunches is a challenge for many growers and especially leading up to Valentine's Day. For the Ecuadorian rose grower Naranjo Group it was too and last year, they decided to set up and install the first Latin American rose grower - the RoseMatic 2.0 of Bercomex. And it runs at full speed at the moment. "For Valentine's Day, 160,000 roses will be sorted and bunched", says Carlos Jauregui of Columbec, Ecuadorian partner of Bercomex.



Just like many other Ecuadorian growers, Valentine's Day is one of their most important days, together with Mother's Day and All Saints. During these days larger quantities of roses are required but the quality of the Ecuadorian rose should not suffer. For this reason, Naranjo Group decided to install the new rose grading machine, the RoseMatic 2.0 of Bercomex. 



"Last year, Columbec, Bercomex and Narjanco group started to work together intensively to improve the process from farm to harvest and post harvest. We installed the RoseMatic 2.0 which is capable of processing all varieties that are produced by Naranjo Group, which are more than 80. These are grown on three farms that are located from 2,700 meters to over 3,000 meters above sea-level", says Jauregui.



The RoseMatic 2.0 sorts roses according to the length of the stem, diameter of the stem, bud height and opening of the bud and can produce 8,000 stems an hour, with a maximum of 9,000 an hour. According to Jauregui, a major advantage of the machine is the combination of high productivity and creating uniform bunches. "Manually, it is possible to achieve uniform bunches with high quality roses, but with this machine this farm may certify it and can increase the production up to 35 percent", says Jauregui. "On top of that, it saves the grading criteria per type of rose, so growers can always switch quickly."

White Roses at the Grammys

The white rose was a campaign in support of the Times Up initiative. The rose idea conceived  and pushed by Meg Harkins, senior vice president of marketing at Roc Nation, Karen Rait, head of rhythm promotions at Interscope Geffen A&M Records, and other high-profile women in the music industry. “We all agreed it was really necessary,” Harkins said. “We’ve all felt the political and cultural change in the last couple of months.” In an email sent to attendees of the Grammys, the collective explained their choice of the flower. “We choose the white rose because historically it stands for hope, peace, sympathy and resistance,” it read.

The colour white, represents peace, but it is also has history in the women’s movement in the states. White was one of the three of colors adopted by the suffragette movement, along with green and purple; white stood for purity. 

Beyonce never one to miss an opportunity to win at visual statements, skipped the red carpet and the white rose, but her six-year-old daughter, Blue Ivy, was dressed in head-to-toe white. Kesha – an artist who has firsthand experience of sexual misconduct – performed all in white, with a supporting cast including Cyndi Lauper and Camilla Cabelo also in the colour.
