Valentines Day Facts - By stella_123_5

Approximately 110 million roses, mostly red, will be sold and delivered within the three-day Valentine's Day time period.

189 million stems of roses are sold in the U.S. on Valentine's Day.

California produces 60 percent of American roses, but the greater number sold on Valentine's Day in the United States are imported, mostly from South America.

The most fantastic gift of love is the Taj Mahal in India. It was built by Mughal Emperor Shahjahan as a memorial to his wife.

About 3% of pet owners will give Valentine's Day gifts to their pets.

Children receive 39 percent of all Valentine's Day candy and gifts.

At one time, conversation candies were made into shapes including horseshoes, baseballs and watches.

Working For Us


Blank Canvas is looking for;

*Journalists *Researchers *AC Commentators *Interviewers *Advertisers *Graphic Designers *Comic Makers *Photographers *& Anyone Who Writes Stories


About The Positions;



Journalists are sometimes given assignments to complete for the next issue, but most of the time they are to create whatever articles they like that runs with the theme of the issue. They can also submit Neopian Times submissions into the magazine.

Researchers scour Neopets for the latest trends and new features on the site. They can also create boards to interview Neopians or ask for their opinions and views.

AC Commentators is a seasonal position. For this job you commentate on the Altador Cup. This includes interviewing players, writing match reports, predicting scores and winners, and, overall, covering whatever happens during the course of the Altador Cup.

Interviewers interview selected Neopians and fictional Neopets characters. For example, in the September Issue we interviewed site owners, Fyora, and Chef Bonju.

Advertisers advertise the magazine on the help boards. Although there is no minimum of how many times they must advertise, it is recommended that they do advertise the magazine whenever they have time.

Graphic Desginers is a very widely spread job. Even if you can only make one of the items listed below, you can still apply for the job;

-Buttons

-Layouts

-Graphics (e.g. banners, icons, etc)



Comic Makers are told the theme of the magazine at the start of the month. You may use existing characters that you may use on a site you own or a screenies page for example. They are then free to create whatever comic they want that runs with that theme. You also have the choice of whether to create a single comic, or a series of multiple parts. They can also submit Neopian Times submissions into the magazine as well.

Photographers are free to take whatever photos they like. All you need to do is take some photos then put the collection on a petpage. I will then look through them and select which photos will be in the magazine.

Story Writers are sometimes given assignments to complete for the next issue, but most of the time they are to create whatever story they like that runs with the theme of the issue. You have the choice of whether to create a single story, or a series of multiple parts. They can also submit Neopian Times submissions into the magazine as well.
