Comments26/02/2017 #32 Joel AndersonSpot on @Franci🐝Eugenia Hoffman, beBee Brand Ambassador It is the essence of your explanation that speaks volumes about the impact, influence and value of an affinity network that is about real people. This explanation and insights resonate in so many ways. Like this piece, there are so many examples of great content, thoughtful content, and engaging content from real people, genuine people, simple people that come from every climb and place around our globe. Well done.05/12/2016 #26 Migdalia BurgosGreat post and on the mark @Franci Eugenia Hoffman. I have had more meaningful and interesting (and respectful) interactions on Bebee than anywhere else. It's freeing to be able to speak clearly and freely without having to censure yourself in case someone bent on clashing is lurking. Thanks for sharing.
- 23/07/2017Where the Bee Sucks...
Where the bee sucks, there suck I:
In a cowslip’s bell I lie;
There I couch when owls do cry.
On the bat’s back I do fly
After summer merrily.
Merrily, merrily I live now
Under the blossom that hangs on the bough.
~ William Shakespeare

Comments14/01/2017 #9 Pamela 🐝 Williams#7 David, I'm now following quite a few Bee organizations on Twitter and will try to get some followers from those groups through Paul's Growth Hacker portion of his App. Though I'm not sure I want to use the term "leverage" :-) I saw it the other way around: How can we use our 'bee' identity to help the pollinator crisis occurring around the globe.14/01/2017 #7 David B. GrinbergWow, Milic, you're like an bee encyclopedia. This is likely the most comprehensive buzz about real bees ever on this platform. Here's my question to all: how can bebee leverage the unfortunate fact -- now being broadly reported in mainstream media worldwide -- that bumble bees have placed on the USA's Endangered Species List for the first time??? http://www.nbcnews.com/science/environment/bumble-bee-species-declared-endangered-u-s-first-time-n706321

Comments08/12/2016 #3 David B. GrinbergThat's really great, Javier. You may want to consider having your staff contact the White House Press Office and try to leverage this somehow to partner with beBee. The Obama Administration might be up for some fun in these waning days. Nothing ventured, nothing gained. Thus, I say it's worth a try.

Comments09/10/2016 #4 David ChappellGreat Post! I love my bees. Unfortunately when I say "my" bees I don't mean that I have my own hives (I and my son want to but we aren't allowed). Where I live we have to have permits and government permission to own our own hives. Even then they regulate and control every aspect of ownership and can destroy your hives if you don't do things the way they tell you to. They can even destroy your hives because of encroachment into "industrial waters". The bees are in trouble that's for sure.09/10/2016 #1 Miguel 🐝 López OlivaBuen artículo, @Javier 🐝 beBee!! Ahora toca poner en práctica todo lo que está en nuestras manos para salvar a las abejas, desde plantar plantas "amigables" para las abejas hasta crear una fundación para protegerlas, tratando de influenciar para que se prohiba el uso de pesticidas perjudiciales y se fomenten los cultivos ecológicos.
Para mí, lo que es un signo de que las empresas deberían participar es que, además de ser respetuoso con el medio ambiente, la agricultura ecológica se ha demostrado que es rentable.
Me encantaría que desde beBee se fomentara la protección de las abejas, ya que además de ser nuestro símbolo, son cruciales y esenciales para mantener el actual ecosistema.

https://www.bebee.com/producer/@miguel-lopez-de-la-oliva/sharp-savethebees-sharp-salvemosalasabejas08/10/2016 #2 Pamela 🐝 WilliamsThank you for sharing such an important message Emilia. When I was pursuing my Environmental Science degrees I did a lot research on Colony Collapse Disorder. and it horrifying what is happening to the bee populations. On a positive note; there are some developing nations that are building their honey production. This had the added benefit of increasing bee populations. Since some of these regions are not as yet subjected to the high use of agriculture chemicals the bees are able to remain healthy and reproduce. It is sad to think that we may eventually have to have 'no chemical' zones in order to build bee populations, which would then need to be transported to agriculture areas to pollinate the crops. That is already occurring in the US. . California must import bees to pollinate their Almond and flower crops.

Comments14/01/2017 #47 Todd JonesHumans are a curious lot. Our proclivity toward self destruction seems boundless, even in the face of scientific evidence. We need to look no further than our President Elect's position on global warming for confirmation of this tendency. Thankfully, our ability to engineer our way back from the edge of ruin rivals our penchant for creating it. Back in the 1980's the destructive effect of chlorofluorocarbons on the ozone layer was a hot topic, which was addressed through a combination of legislation, scientific research, and new product development. So hope doth remain.
The shocking collapse of bee colonies is a crisis that requires immediate attention. In my mind, this is an underpublicized predicament more pressing than global warming. Let's not wait for mass starvation to be the prompt for us to get serious about solving this looming disaster.
Excellent post @Pamela 🐝 Williams. Sharing forward.

Comments11/08/2016 #9 Kevin Pashuk#8 While I own a tripod, I rarely use it. I have found a stance that works well for me, and the Vibration Reduction on my Nikkor and Tamron lenses works well with the fastest shutter speed I can handle. The clip on macro lens was one of those generic brands and will probably break with too much use. It also had a wide angle adapter but I find my phone camera already has a great field of view.11/08/2016 #8 Froilán Pérez#7 I have very shaky hands and when I use a telephoto, I need a tripod in order not to get blurry pics. But this is crisp and sharp, love it!. Also, which lens for the phone did you get in that giveaway? I have been thinking about buying one called olloclip, but I think it wont fit on the phone without removing the cover. Again, thanks for sharing both your professional insights but also your passions, like this buzz. This is the beBee spirit!11/08/2016 #6 Kevin Pashuk#3 Thanks for visiting my Flickr stream @Froilán Pérez! You are right. I was given a macro lens for my phone camera as a giveaway at a trade show, and the little piece of plastic is impressing me to no end. The shot in this post was taken with a much higer calibre of lens however.
