It's Official- Cell Phones are Killing Bees

It's Official- Cell Phones are Killing Bees
Scientists may have found the cause of the world’s sudden dwindling population of bees – and cell phones may be to blame. Research conducted in Lausanne, Switzerland has shown that the signal from cell phones not only confuses bees, but also may lead to their death. Over 83 experiments have yielded the same results. With virtually most of the population of the United States (and the rest of the world) owning cell phones, the impact has been greatly noticeable. Led by researcher Daniel Favre, the alarming study found that bees reacted significantly to cell phones that were placed near or in hives in call-making mode. The signals cause the bees to become lost and disoriented. Bees are an integral and necessary part of our agricultural and ecological systems, producing honey, and more importantly pollinating our crops. Via Daily Mail Related:  The Dark Side

America's Regional Hot Dog Styles As we head into the 4th of July weekend, hot dogs are everywhere. They're on our grill and on our plates. They're on our TVs (the annual hot dog eating contest on ESPN). And this being Serious Eats, they're on our mind. Sonorans (Tuscon and Phoenix, Arizona) Photograph from Mr Frosted on Flickr Bacon-wrapped hot dogs are grilled, then nestled in steamed bolillo rolls and topped with pinto beans, chopped tomatoes, onions, mustard, mayo, and jalapeños. Michigan Red Hots (Upstate New York) A favorite that hails from New York's North Country, Michigan red hots are steamed beef franks with a natural casing, served in a steamed split-top bun, and topped with a minced meat chili (no tomatoes or beans), chopped raw onions, and mustard. Clare and Carl's 4729 NY-9, Plattsburgh NY 518-561-1163 New York System (Rhode Island) Similar to Michigans and Coneys, the New York System wiener joints can be found all over Rhode Island.

Nu publicerar vi förundersökningen om Julian Assange - Magasinet Paragraf Bilden som illustrerar den här artikeln visar hur man i stora delar av världen ser på staten Sveriges agerande gentemot Julian Assange. Jag har en tid haft tillgång till hela den svenska förundersökningen om Julian Assanges påstådda sexbrott. Har varit tveksam till om vi skulle publicera den eller inte. Inte för att den är sekretessbelagd. Det finns ofta anledning för oss på Para§raf att låta publicera dokument som makthavare av olika slag vill dölja. Utan för att den avhandlar intima sexuella detaljer. Frågor och svar Några korta frågor och svar beskriver vad det handlar om: Raggade Assange upp de här två kvinnorna? Nej, de raggade upp honom och erbjöd honom att bo i deras lägenheter. Sa de ifrån om att de inte ville ligga med honom? Nej, inte alls. Använde han våld för att ha sex med dem? Nej. Ville han helst ha sex utan kondom? Ja, men det är inte olagligt. Hade han medvetet sönder en kondom? Blev någon av kvinnorna gravid eller smittad av någon sjukdom? Som en rockidol Varnade Assange

TOXIC: Garbage Island 1 of 3 - Toxic | VBS.TV By Thomas Morton Photos by Jake Burghart I’m not one of those guys who corners folks at parties to rant at them about biodiesel or calls people “fucking idiots” for being skeptical about global warming. But I should also point out that I’m not one of those Andrew Dice Clay “Fuck the whales” types either. The problem with all the bravado on both sides of the ecology debate is that nobody really knows what they’re talking about. Trying to form opinions on climate change, overpopulation, and peak oil hinges on ginormous leaps of faith based around tiny statistical deviances that even the scientists studying them have a hard time understanding. It gets so convoluted with all the yelling and the politics that sometimes you just want something huge and incontrovertibly awful to come along for everybody to agree on. Well, I have just such a thing. The problem with plastic is, unless you hammer it with enough pressure to make a diamond, it never fully disintegrates.

How To Store Produce Without Plastic We don’t use plastic to store any of our vegetables or fruits. For example, we store carrots, whole or cut, immersed in containers of water. They will stay crisp in the refrigerator for weeks. (Make sure to change the water frequently.) The Berkeley Farmers Market has put together a huge list of ways to store produce without plastic. How to Store Vegetables Without Plastic Always remove any tight bands from your vegetables or at least loosen them to allow them to breath. Artichokes‐ place in an airtight container sealed, with light moisture.Asparagus‐ place them loosely in a glass or bowl upright with water at room temperature. How to Store Fruit Without Plastic Apples‐ store on a cool counter or shelf for up to two weeks. One question I’m often asked is how to store loose salad greens without plastic. We also don’t freeze veggies and fruits or buy them frozen. I’d love to hear about your produce storage ideas/challenges.

Gregs Gypsy Bowtop Caravans - Home Nowe plany depopulacji Niedługo do układów klimatyzacji w samochodach trafi nowe chłodziwo o symbolu HFO-1234yf, 2,3,3,3-tetrafluoropropan czyli fluorowany węglowodór. Ma ono zastąpić wycofywany z rynku R 134a, jako że ten ostatni został uznany za gaz cieplarniany, a jak wiadomo gazy cieplarniane powodują ocieplenie klimatu, co stanowi nowy dogmat wiary NWO. Nowe chłodziwo ma 300-krotnie mniejsze możliwości tworzenia efektu cieplarnianego i to jest jego jedyna, wątpliwa zaleta. Jednocześnie jednak ma dwie spore wady: po pierwsze, pod wpływem wysokiej temperatury przekształca się w śmiertelną truciznę, fluorowodór, a po drugie jest horrendalnie drogie. Fluorowodór wydzielający się przy silnym podgrzaniu HFO-1234yf bezboleśnie przenika przez skórę, a nawet przez strój ochronny. Przeprowadzono w Niemczech próby laboratoryjne, do których użyto świńskich łów z ubojni. Natomiast w układzie klimatyzacyjnym jest około 600 gram fluorowodoru.

How Can It Be Warming When It's (Almost) Always Cooling? By Joe Romm on November 5, 2011 at 3:27 pm "How Can It Be Warming When It’s (Almost) Always Cooling?" The Koch-funded Berkeley Earth Surface Temperature Study (BEST) verified three things we already knew: Recent global warming has been “on the high end.”It’s accelerating.The data won’t stop the deniers and their media allies from spreading disinformation, including the myth that it has stopped warming. Figure 1: BEST land-only surface temperature data (green) with linear trends applied to the timeframes 1973 to 1980, 1980 to 1988, 1988 to 1995, 1995 to 2001, 1998 to 2005, 2002 to 2010 (blue), and 1973 to 2010 (red). Dana of Skeptical Science has a good post on the denier’s latest spin, “Going Down the Up Escalator,” reposted below. One of the most common misunderstandings amongst climate “skeptics” is the difference between short-term noise and long-term signal. This myth stems from a lack of understanding of exactly what global warming is. The Noisy Group Predictably, Dr. Dr. Dr.

Finnish research brings carbon material to solar cells Kerttu Aitola, a researcher at Aalto University, is the first person to replace the most expensive parts of solar cells with carbon nanomaterials. In her doctoral dissertation she compares the suitability of different carbon nanomaterials as counter electrodes for dye solar cells. The current, third-generation solar cells are manufactured from silicon. The future alternative to silicon solar cells is dye-sensitised solar cell technology, DSC, which has been described as artificial photosynthesis. The technology was the winner of the 2010 Millennium Technology Prize. Aitola and her colleagues replaced the counter electrode of the solar cells with a new carbon composite, carbon nanotubes. Additionally, instead of glass substrate, the researchers used a flexible plastic substrate, which allows the use of a printing process in the production of solar cells. Kerttu Aitola defended her dissertation Carbon nanomaterials as Counter Electrodes for Dye Solar Cells on 25 May at Aalto University.

The Before I Die Project Jun 09, 2011 / Category : Misc / 15 Comments Before I Die transforms neglected spaces into constructive ones where we can learn the hopes and aspirations of the people around us. This amazing project is started by Candy Chang a public installation artist, designer, urban planner, and co-founder of Civic Center who likes to make cities more comfortable for people. Chang says: "It's easy to get caught up in the day-to-day and forget what really matters to you. With help from friends and neighbors, I turned the side of an abandoned house in my neighborhood into a giant chalkboard to invite people to share what is important to them. Before I Die transforms a neglected space into a constructive one where we can learn the hopes and aspirations of the people around us. The wall is still alive and kicking!

13 Most Evil U.S. Government Experiments on Humans The U.S. Government has been caught conducting an insane amount of vile, inhumane and grisly experiments on humans without their consent and often without their knowledge. So in light of recent news of the U.S. infecting Guatemalans with STDs, here are the 13 most evil, for lack of a better word, cases of human-testing as conducted by the United States of America. Get ready to become one of those conspiracy theory nuts, because after this list, you will never fully trust your government again. 1) Mind Control, Child Abuse – Project MKULTRA, Subproject 68 This is the stuff of nightmares. 2) Mustard Gas Tested on Soldiers via Involuntary Gas Chambers As bio-weapon research intensified in the 1940′s, officials also began testing its repercussions and defenses on the Army itself. 3) U.S. As head of Japan’s infamous Unit 731 (a covert biological and chemical warfare research and development unit of the Imperial Japanese Army during World War II), Dr. 5) US Infects Guatemalans With STD’s
