In the past decade, the US honeybee population has been decreasing at an alarming and unprecedented rate. But why?
Emma Bryce offers some explanations in the TED-Ed Lesson The case of the vanishing honeybees.
One solution? Plant flowers! In Marla Spivak’s TED Talk Why bees are disappearing, she reminds us that when bees have access to good nutrition, we have access to good nutrition through their pollination services.
So get out there, Tumblr - and plant some bee-friendly flowers!

I should just start going to bed at 11, getting up at 6 am, and going for a walk or a bike ride before going to practice. I’ve had it with dealing with my boyfriend not being able to get up in the morning, even though he’s set 32,729 alarms, each set 5 minutes apart. And he doesn’t wake up or hear any of them, and he gets frustrated every time I try and wake him up just so he can turn his alarm off so I can get back to sleep, and then he falls back asleep just in time for the next one, while I’m sitting there wishing I could back to sleep. This happens for about one to two hours every morning.
I’ve had it with trying to help him, too. It’s a lost cause.
Being the lightest sleeper in the world partnered with the deepest sleeper in the world kinda sucks.
1. I like practicing at night, because I can walk home and stare up at the night sky and see the world under a different light.
Additionally, I’m going to start taking at least a picture a day, and posting them here. Maybe for 365 days, maybe less, maybe more. I think projects like this do really well in getting people to stop and appreciate the so-called “little things”.
