A tax hike is Ficano's fantasy (Phil H.)

King should have left Ficano at home. His abuse of the pension system — one example: his 41-year-old former chief of staff can collect a $96,000 yearly pension for the rest of his life after working for just 8 ½ years — steals the thunder from the poor grandma terrified of losing her $1,500-a-month benefit.

Bee-Killing Germs May Leave You With Less Food Options (westcoastjan)

In 2011, a collaborative group of agricultural researchers from Japan and China tested this hypothesis and found that problems with immune function led to increased Nosema infections. Their claim was that the overall nature of beekeeping was causing undue stress on colonies leaving them prone to infection and collapse. But the results could not explain all cases as even those who kept bees in the least stressful means were experiencing problems.
