BIOLOGISTS IDENTIFY HONEY BEE “CLEAN” GENES KNOWN FOR IMPROVING SURVIVAL — World Organic News

Breeding ‘hygiene’ for disease resistance, doesn’t this sound better than robo-bees and other tech-heavy ‘solutions’ because our honeybees can’t keep up with the pesticides and other environmental toxins?

I don’t know if this is the answer, but if it means fewer chemicals, why not give it a shot?

We will continue to try for ‘hygienic bees’ and minimal treatments here on the wee homestead, because we don’t want to be dependent on chemicals to keep any of our livestock thriving.  There’s got to be a better way!

By THE BEE REPORTFEBRUARY 18, 20192:29 PM Researchers looked for areas that differ between the unhygienic bees (left) and hygienic bees (right). / Photo: York University The key to breeding disease-resistant honey bees could lie in a group of genes – known for controlling hygienic behavior – that enable colonies to limit the spread of harmful […]

If You Murdered A Bunch Of People, Mass Murder Is Your Single Defining Legacy — Caitlin Johnstone

Thought experiment:Think of an acquaintance of yours. Not someone you’re particularly close to, just some guy in the cast of extras from the scenery of your life. Now, imagine learning that that guy is a serial murderer, who has been prowling the streets for years stabbing people to death. Imagine he goes his whole life…

True Feminism — Caitlin Johnstone
