Another couple of interesting stories about what’s happening with the bees. One about how Australia’s bees industry is capitalizing on the fact that the syndrome hasn’t spread down under, and another about how the size of the combs seems to be a big factor in this – an issue touched on in the last article I posted.

Also there’s a story of how an Italian town is rallying against a proposed US base near its World Heritage listed sites. Power to the people – yeah baby!
