Possible Cause for Colony Collapse Disorder #bees

SAN DIEGO, CA – May 25, 2010 -- New research from the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) identifies a new potential cause for “Colony Collapse Disorder” in honeybees.  A group of pathogens including a fungus and family of viruses may be working together to cause the decline.  Scientists report their results today at the 110th General Meeting of the American Society for Microbiology in San Diego.“There might be a synergism between two very different pathogens,” says Jay Evans of the USDA Agricultural Research Service, a researcher on the study.  “When they show up together there is a significant correlation with colony decline.”Beginning in October 2006, some beekeepers began reporting losses of 30-90 percent of their hives. Although colony losses are not unexpected during winter weather, the magnitude of loss suffered by some beekeepers was highly unusual.“Domesticated honey bees face numerous pests and pathogens, tempting hypotheses that colony collapses arise from exposu…

Making Pages In Blogger Blogspot Blogs

I was just reading an article by someone who designed a Blogger blog that had pages and not just posts.

If you are not familiar with the difference between the two, posts appear consecutively on the same page with the newest at the top, like a rolling screen.

Pages are separate, and the only way to get to them is to navigate to them via a navigation menu that appears somewhere on the blog.

I wondered how he did that so I went into the admin side of this blog here at pixelsatemyhomework and I saw that in the 'Posting' page there is a section to 'Edit Pages' - I never noticed this before, and if I had noticed it I would have wondered how I could edit that which I do not have.

But in the way of the internet, clicking is easy and the penalties are usually small - so I clicked and bingo! it told me I hadn't created any pages and asked me whether I wanted to create a new page.

So that's how you do it. Simple!

The question is how the pages will look in the navigation…

Cracks In The Vatican

By Nick Pisa in Rome
Published: 12:55AM BST 10 May 2010 Cardinal Christoph Schoenborn, 65, who is seen as a possible future Pope, slammed his fellow prince of the Church, Cardinal Angelo Sodano, 83, for dismissing the paedophile priest crisis as "petty gossip."Cardinal Schoenborn said that Cardinal Sodano, who is currently Dean of the Vatican's all powerful College of Cardinals, had attempted to cover up of a high profile Austrian sex abuse case.Vienna Cardinal Schoenborn told Austrian Catholic news agency Kauthpress: "The days of cover up are over. For a long while the Church's principle of forgiveness was falsely interpreted and was in favour of those responsible and not the victims."He added that during the 1990's when Cardinal Hans Hermann Groer, the leader of Austria's Catholics was accused of sex abuse a "track of Vatican diplomacy" had muddied the investigation and led to a cover up.Cardinal Schoenborn said Pope Benedict…

Pixels Ate My Homework: bX-9x80od Error and Solution

bX-9x80od Error and Solution

I got this error when I tried to change the color of a link on my blog.

I googled 'bX-9x80od' and saw that it was a problem that had been reported many times.

The solution is simple. It doesn't involve a workaround or anything strange. It is just a question of going to the correct page in your blog set-up.

The basis of the error comes from the fact that people are using the new templates in, but the page you would normally go to in order to change link colors etc, only works for the older blogger templates.

So if you are in your blog and you go to 'Layout' and you see this:

Then you are in the wrong page. If you click on 'Fonts and Colors' you will go to a page that looks like you should be able to change link colors etc., but it will bring up an error when you try to save it.

If you are looking at your blog (rather than the admin panel) and you click on customize, it will still take you to the wrong page:

This is what you should be doing, …
