Researchers at the University of Illinois found that not all bees are interchangeable drones. Some bees are thrill-seekers. Others are a bit more timid. A 2011 study even found that agitated honeybees can be pessimistic, showing that to some extent, bees might have feelings. 

Awesome.

"14-year-old Parkview High School Freshman, Caleb Christian was concerned about the number of incidents of police abuse in the news.  Still, he knew there were many good police officers in various communities, but had no way of figuring out which communities were highly rated and which were not.  
So, together with his two older sisters: Parkview High School senior Ima Christian, and Gwinnett School of Math, Science, and Technology sophomore, Asha Christian, they founded a mobile app development company– Pinetart Inc., under which they created a mobile app called Five-O.Five-O, allows citizens to enter the details of every interaction with a police officer.  It also allows them to rate that officer in terms of courtesy and professionalism and provides the ability to enter a short description of what transpired.  These details are captured for every county in the United States. Citizen race and age information data is also captured. 
Additionally, Five-O allows citizens to store the details of each encounter with law enforcement; this provides convenient access to critical information needed for legal action or commendation.”

I’m still shocked how many people don’t know/realize/care how dangerous helium balloon releases are. Sure it looks fun, but those balloons come down again as trash. And you can be sure if they end up on a body of water they resemble food to the wildlife and they choke to death or starve because it prevents them from eating.
These balloons keep washing up on the beaches of Delaware today. Sad.

Just say no to this, people. ecobota:

Dandelions are the enemy in the war for the pristine green lawn. However, they are incredibly beneficial to many insects and pollinators, and there are a variety of ways to cook and eat them.
