Although black bears are located throughout North America in ever-rising numbers, there are certain areas of Canada where they tend to congregate more than others. Alberta black bear hunting, for example, is extremely popular due to their abundance. One of the regions of Alberta where mature black bears tend to congregate is throughout the Peace River Country. This allows hunters to have direct access with bears, while staying in remote cabins or wall tent camps in the center of this hunting ground. The Peace River Country area of Alberta stretches from the northwestern region of Alberta over to the Rocky Mountains in northeastern British Columbia. It is ideal for Alberta bear hunting because of the abundance of wet areas, which draw bears that are looking for food. The aspens are not only scenic here but also give hunters plenty of spots to spot and stalk their trophy. Canola, oats, peas, and barley farms form the backdrop for an idyllic tent camp alongside your hunting adventure, making this a peaceful getaway as well as one with a specific hunting purpose. The seasons for Alberta black bear hunting begin in May, June, and end in September. Hunters are allowed to take one or two bears, depending on the region where they are hunting. The bears will be different sizes depending on the season you choose to go after them. Each season has its own pros and cons, so it's recommended to research this thoroughly before you book your hunting trip, because you are only allowed so many bears each calendar year, rather than each season. You will also need to sort out your hunting license and bear permit ahead of time, rather than after you harvest your bear.
Most important, this research provides no evidence of any reactance or boomerang effect in response to graphic pictorial warning labels. On the contrary, the findings suggest that the Canadian warnings may yield a public health benefit: approximately one third of smokers reported that the labels have increased their likelihood of quitting. Although the current study cannot speak directly to any public health benefit, the warnings may also act as a harm reduction measure, as 20% of smokers reported smoking less as a result of the warnings. Finally, the graphic nature of the Canadian warnings does not appear to have compromised their credibility. This research has several limitations. First, in the absence of pre-post measurements, the current study was not able to assess changes in avoidance and emotional reactions from the previous generation of Canadian warning labels. Second, there is no control group against which to compare the impact of the Canadian warnings. Overall, the current research suggests that policymakers should not be reluctant to introduce graphic cigarette warning labels based on potential adverse outcomes. Rather, short of exaggerating the risks of smoking or crossing the bounds of public decency, warning labels should adopt vivid and striking features that increase their salience among smokers.
When we bought our first home, almost 25 years ago, the only thing I knew was that plants were green. Turns out that was wrong too! After a quarter century of gardening in the Pacific Northwest, I have learned a lot about the process and satisfaction that comes from building a garden. Because of our mild and moist climate, we are fortunate to be able to grow a very wide variety of plants. SInce mild and moist sometimes becomes cold and wet or even frigid and frozen, some plants are borderline. Therefore many of us suffer from zonal aspiration - that's OK! For those who are just starting out, or for those who just want to share some ideas about creating a beautiful garden, I dedicate this lens. The plants featured here deserve a home in most Pacific Northwest gardens. This rhodo found it's home a couple of years ago when I built a narrow bed at the side of our house.
Finding the right spot for plants can take time, but this has turned out to be the right spot for some azaleas and this particular small-leafed rhododendron. The colour can only be described as an electric blue. Last week I underplanted it with some marigolds because I wanted a hot orange to contrast with the blue. This colour was completely missed by my camera which washed it out to a pale purple so I adjusted the colour to get back closer to the true hue. I may need to buy several more! We have a small bay leaf laurel in our equally small herb garden. For a number of years, it has been plagued by small winged insects that would cause the leaves to thicken and curl. We would find a bluish sticky substance being deposited on the leaf below an infested leaf. It was unsightly and my dear wife threatened to banish the plant from its prominent place right beside our back porch.
