Study identifies brain areas altered during hypnotic trances
Sometimes called “wear and tear” arthritis, osteoarthritis in people who are obese was long assumed to simply be a consequence of undue stress on joints. But researchers provide the first evidence that bacteria in the gut – governed by diet – could be the key driving force behind osteoarthritis.

4 38DDD-30-38 oh shit Thank you, whoever did this.
2 lie2mee I'll be trying a couple of hives with lithium carbonate in 20 mM concentration in sugar water for 24h as a test to see what happens this April for sure. I happen to have a half kilo of lithium carbonate on hand. This works out to roughly 1.48g per liter of water...should not be a problem for a light sugar syrup recipe to get it dissolved. I'll report back.
3 wait_wait_wha Wait, wait... This would be awesome.... ***Except*** for the life cycle of varroa. Mite enters cell with bee larva. Cell gets sealed. Mite moves underneath larva, into bee food. Mite feeds on prepupa. Female lays eggs. Eggs develop from mite larva and feed on bee. They mate inside the cell. Females leave cell when bee breaks out of cell. Males stay in cell. Females ride on bee to other location.   So... short story, this chemical only works on mites *outside* of cell. The chemical will remain in the colony for quite some time, and the honey, pollen, wax cannot be harvested.   ***Solution?***   Get hygienic queens, use with powdered sugar (hygienic bees want to clean each other more, powder sugar all over hive, triggers cleaning), fumigate with formic acid (kills mites, bees okay, stuff made by ants), use drone frame rotation (varroa seem to like larger cells, drone cells are larger, females move in to lay eggs, cells get sealed, take frame out and destroy it -it only contains drones and mites), periodically "cook" worker bees (varroa dies over 116F, bees are okay).   And, for those whose "colony collapse"... how about you stop splitting in the fall? What did you expect? Of course you are going to lose more than 50%?!? Try **combining** instead. Splitting became a fashion in the early 50's in the West because it doubles the production for next year. Except it halves the strength of a hive that just spent working all summer....
