The bold vision, the new strategic thinking!

Install new queens! Repopulate the beekeepers! And count them well. 

It ain't funny, honey!

_________________________________________________


"While beekeepers have a way of repopulating their hives—splitting healthy hives in half and installing new queens to replenish the colonies—they are struggling to keep up with the cost and time of doing so.


The federal government doesn’t count the number of beekeepers, but the American Beekeeping Federation has said its membership roster has fallen by at least half in the past two decades. Fewer beekeepers present a serious challenge to the agriculture industry, which relies on bees to pollinate some $15 billion of crops each year."

Obama just unveiled a big new plan to save the honeybees

A decade ago, beekeepers in the United States started noticing that their honeybees were dying at unusually high rates in the winter. It was a disturbing trend, given that these bees are crucial for pollinating so many of our favorite fruits and vegetables.

Polonium, ‘heartbreak grass’ or good old-fashioned cyanide: what’s your poison?

No matter which toxin you choose, it’s getting more difficult to dispatch your enemies without detection as forensic technology improves – just ask Russia’s secret service
As an undetectable means of bumping someone off, poison has fallen steeply out of favour in recent times, forensic technology having advanced to such a degree that the presence of even the smallest quantities of any toxic agent in a corpse will now almost inevitably be detected.
Water-soluble, tasteless and formerly widely available in the form of rat poison and weed killer, white arsenic was once so popular that it was known as “inheritance powder”. Strychnine, made from the seeds of the south-east Asian Nux vomica tree, was equally fashionable, as – in the Middle Ages – was atropine, aka belladonna or deadly nightshade: the juice of a few berries could be lethal.

There is no love lost between the Farc and the US: Washington put the guerrilla group on its list of terrorist organizations in 1997 and poured billions of dollars of military aid into a campaign to defeat them. The rebels accuse the United States of imperialist meddling, and consider Americans among their most prized hostages.

Unfriend request: Mark Zuckerberg’s neighbourhood privacy settings

Facebook’s founder owns four properties surrounding his California home, and a huge, sparse estate in Hawaii. Why do so many tech billionaires crave isolation?
Mark Zuckerberg is living several dreams at once. He’s living the dream in which he earned billions of dollars by creating a social media platform that people actively hate. He’s living the dream in whichLex Luthor got to play him in the film of his life. And now he’s living the dream in which he gets to wander around a vast uninhabited space all alone, like Will Smith in I Am Legend.
Over the past couple of years, Zuckerberg has made two big property purchases – last year he bought 750 acres of land on the north shore of Kauai in Hawaii for $100m, and in 2013 he bought the four properties surrounding his Palo Alto home – that seem to underline his rampant desire for privacy. Recently revealed plans indicating that Zuckerberg does not intend to build an entire compound on his land, but rather a single property, suggest that he is determined to surround himself with, well, almost no one (with the exception, presumably, of his wife, Priscilla Chan).

Obama Task Force Lays Out Plan to Save Honeybees

1 Share
The White House laid out a strategy Tuesday to address a surge in honeybee deaths that includes scrutinizing the effect of pesticides on pollinators and planting more bee-friendly vegetation on federal land.
Bees routinely die during the winter months, but the rate has been rising, and beekeepers have recently started to lose a large number in the summer, too. More than 40% of U.S. honeybee colonies died in the year ended in April, the Agriculture Department said this month.
In its report Tuesday, a White House task force said it wanted to lower the proportion of colony losses in the cold months to 15% within 10 years, down from 23% this past winter.
Among the many causes scientists are researching is the role played by pesticides—particularly a class known as neonicotinoids, often applied to crops.
Pesticides are absorbed by plant tissues and then transferred to pollen and nectar. Bees, used to pollinate many different types of crops in the U.S., exhibit a wide range of sensitivities to neonicotinoids, the report said.
The task force said the Environmental Protection Agency would take the lead in coming years to research the potential safety risks posed by pesticides and to reduce their impact on bees. In April, the EPA said it would stop approving new outdoor uses for those types of chemicals until more studies on bee health are conducted.
“Mitigating the effects of pesticides on bees is a priority for the federal government,” the task force said.
Scientists believe various factors are hurting bees, including nutrition deficiencies that stem from limited access to high-quality and diverse food sources, the report said.
To address that, the task force called for improving 7 million acres of land as habitat for pollinators—envisioned as a combination of action by the federal government and public-private partnerships.
Other harmful factors include the stress of frequently moving colonies to pollinate various crops, and the Varroa mite, a bloodsucking parasite that weakens bees and introduces diseases to hives.
While beekeepers have a way of repopulating their hives—splitting healthy hives in half and installing new queens to replenish the colonies—they are struggling to keep up with the cost and time of doing so.
The federal government doesn’t count the number of beekeepers, but the American Beekeeping Federation has said its membership roster has fallen by at least half in the past two decades. Fewer beekeepers present a serious challenge to the agriculture industry, which relies on bees to pollinate some $15 billion of crops each year.
The task force report said federal funding already is being directed toward improving the health of pollinators, and noted that the Obama budget request for fiscal 2016 includes more than $82 million in funding, $34 million more than the $48.5 million in the current budget for the year ending Sept. 30.
Some environmental groups, which have been calling on the EPA to ban all neonicotinoid pesticides, criticized the task force, saying the efforts don’t go far enough to protect bees. “Failure to address this growing crisis with a unified and meaningful federal plan will put these essential pollinators and our food supply in jeopardy,” said Tiffany Finck-Haynes, a campaigner at Friends of the Earth.
CropLife America, which represents pesticide companies, said bee colonies aren’t harmed when pesticides are used appropriately. “We will continue to work with growers, beekeepers, regulators and other stakeholders to promote responsible pesticide use,” said CropLife America President Jay Vroom.
The task force also set a five-year goal of increasing the Eastern population of the monarch butterfly. The report noted pollinator-friendly landscaping and gardens are already planted at the USDA, the Smithsonian Institution and at the White House. The Obamas keep a beehive on the South Lawn of the White House, and the bees help to pollinate the kitchen garden.
