Comments Off on New Harvard Study Gives “Convincing Evidence” That Pesticide-Laced Corn Syrup is Linked to Bee Colony Collapse

©No-Minds_vision The decline of the bee population over the last few years has been blamed on many causes, but a recent Harvard University study gives “convincing evidence” that pesticide-laced corn syrup may be the cause of colony collapse. The study shows that odd behaviors such as abandoning hives, disorientation and confusion could be the direct result of farmers feeding their bees high-fructose corn syrup, which was not an issue until U.S. corn crops started to be sprayed with the pesticide imidacloprid eight years ago. Scarily, the first outbreak of Colony Collapse Disorder occurred just a year afterwards.

Comments Off on Scientist Proposes Blowing Away Space Debris Using Massive Bursts of Air

Space debris (the clutter of dead, lost satellites, rocket boosters and other astronautical junk caught up in Earth’s orbit) poses an increasing problem as it circles the globe. Proposed solutions have ranged from a DARPA -developed ‘ space mitt ‘ to a Swiss ‘ space janitor ,’ but the Space Debris Elimination initiative put forward by Daniel Gregory of Raytheon BBN Technologies proposes a theoretically simpler option. Gregory hopes that space debris could be forced out of orbit, or massively slowed down, if it were to pass through a giant ‘pulse’ of atmospheric gases fired from the Earth’s surface. Once interrupted by atmospheric gases, the debris would enter Earth’s atmosphere and largely burn up.

Comments Off on More Scientific Studies Indicate That Cell Phones are Harming 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.
