In 2015 the bees are still dying in masses. Which at first seems not very important until you realize that one third of all food humans consume would disappear with them. Millions could starve. The foes bees face are truly horrifying – some are a direct consequence of human greed. We need to help our small buzzing friends or we will face extremely unpleasant consequences.

The death of bees explained – Colony Collapse disorder

I'm surprised you did not talk about how honey bees are invasive species that we brought to other country's. The honey bees are native to aisa. The bees that are native to America are different but even there disappearing. Bumble bees are local polinaters, Even wasps even though we don't like them there are so many local polinaters in country's its rediculas. Its actualy getting popular to make houses for local bees. Some people are starting to keep local bees to. I know we all like honey and bees wax. But I hear local polinaters and honey bees are competing for resources. I think only South America, and Australia has bees that produce honey that are native. The Aztecs used to keep the south American breed. Also it does not help we eat do many almonds now. They have to transport 25,000 bees to pollinate them each year. I think gmos are bad for bees to because there sterile so they don't produce nector or polen for bees. I think theres multiple things wiping them out. So many that it's dangerous.
I don’t think it’s true Europeans brought bees to the country a long time ago and they are an invasive species they are good but we won’t die with them we have butterfly’s hornets wasps sweat bees honey is good but we play are still ok if bees die
Im glad honey bees are dieing in the USA it's nature correcting it's self honey bees don't belong in the us and kill off native bees which few people talk about bees started off in Asia eventually made it too the USA there an invasive species although yes pesticides are bad
Wi-fi sends out 'hard' signals compared to the ones that insects use, I red. A switched on router in an ant nest made the ants migrate. Switched off and the ants came back.
I got a bit off topic here.
Bees and wasps had a hard time navigating, if I recall correctly.

This is a sentence from me:
I die u cry....the music in the end is so sad that I started to cry...and when I will die u will all cry...
The nature is beautiful! When the bees die the nature cryes save bees save the nature...a sentence by a 8 year old girl, remember everyone like we die everyone cryes its npt only us! There is a sentence from me when the bees die the nature cryes please everyone save bees...

This video is silly. As a bee keeper the honey bee is doing nicely thankyou very much. When hives die there is a reason. Honey bee are breed to give us lots of honey. Other insects pollinate. Neonics do not harm bees. Use google and do a search but put "myth" in quotes in all of the stuff talked about in this video and you can get a good science lesson. This is nothing but nonsense.
If honey bees died out all places that have imported honey bees would not be affected like canda north America and other places north America would not be affected because honey bees are an invasive species. Still losing honey bees would be Really bad for everywhere not just a few places.
If we do more for the native bees where I live, then if honey bees are wiped out, us in North America will be fine. In fact, the environment in North America will be better. Honey bees are stealing the habitat from bees like Mason bees, which is a bee native to North America, and Mason bees are now struggling to survive.
I have a question. I do know that honey bees are not native to North America, but just an invasive species that introduced back in 1622 when European settlers brought them. Now before European settlers came to North America, plant life were thriving for thousands of years. So how is that possible?
+BGM true 🤔 but if they die out the damaged populations of native polinators will likely not be able to pick up the slack not to mention the gentic problems if there's a bottle neck bc of the honey bees encroaching, but who knows if we boost the honey bees we might not have to worry about that as much
As long as idiots follow the sophistry of Milton Friedman, the foolish notion that wharever is bad for others is good for oneself will prevail unchecked, even as the consequences of this fallacy prove otherwise.
Governors: senators (or knights) who ruled the provinces of the Roman empire.
The first Roman province, Sicily, was conquered after the First Punic War (241 BCE), and the Senate decided that it had to be ruled by a praetor. This meant that civil (not military) law was applied -at least under normal circumstances- and that the new territories were governed by magistrates who served a limited time. The Romans never did change these principles, although other types of governorship became more important: the propraetor and proconsul were, as their names suggest, former praetors and consuls who stayed in a territory they had recently or not yet fully conquered. The revolutionary politician Gaius Sempronius Gracchus legislated that these promagistrates were to be appointed by the Senate (123 or 122).
The governor of any Roman province always had four tasks.
To start with, he was responsible for the taxes. As the Senates financial agent, he had to supervise the local authorities and the private tax collectors, the notorious publicans. To facilitate things, a governor could mint coins and negotiate with wealthy institutions (e.g., temples) that could advance the money. His second task was that of accountant: he inspected the books and supervised large scale building projects. Next to these financial tasks, the governor was the provinces supreme judge. Appeal was not impossible, but the voyage to Rome was expensive. He was supposed to travel through the main districts of his province to administer justice in the assize towns. Finally, he commanded an army. In the more important provinces, this could consist of legions; but elsewhere, there were only auxiliaries.
Under the late republic, the number of provinces rapidly increased, and therefore, Pompey the Great proposed a new law, the Lex Pompeia de provinciis , in which former praetors and consuls were obliged to become governor five years after their term in office (53). At more or less the same time, he had himself elected as governor of several provinces, which were not governed by himself, but by his representatives, the legati .
The emperor Augustus copied this idea when he changed the empire, until then ruled as a republic, into a monarchy. He was made governor of almost all provinces with legions, and used legati to rule them. At the same time, the rest of the empire was governed by proconsuls. So, there were two types of governors:
Proconsuls. In fact, these men were not former consuls, but former praetors. They governed the senatorial provinces and typically served twelve months. Only the rich provinces -Asia and Africa- were entitled to a proconsul who was indeed an ex-consul. Legati Augusti pro praetore. These men served in the emperors provinces with the armies (the imperial provinces ). Usually, their term in office lasted thirty-six months, although the emperor Tiberius preferred longer terms.
There was a third group of governors. In several unimportant provinces, prefects were appointed. Usually, these military men governed parts of larger provinces. The best known example is Pontius Pilate, who governed Judaea, an annex to Syria. Prefects were not senators but knights. Egypt was also governed by a prefect, not because it was unimportant, but because it was the emperors own possession. When Septimius Severus conquered Mesopotamia, he used the same construction.
After the mid-first century, the prefects were gradually replaced by procurators (except for Egypt). The only difference is that prefects were soldiers and procurators were fiscal officials. It tells something about the success of the Pax Romana .
