Bees to the Rescue of Their Queen

June 5th 2016

Our peculiar image of the week shows a bee stuck in a woman's car, but this is no regular insect, we're talking about the queen. As a consequence, a swarm of bees chased the trunk for two entire days looking for her. Another fascinating example of bee's dedication to their queen. These worker bees could detect her exact location thanks to a specific pheromone she emits. Tom Moses, national park ranger and bee enthusiast, spotted the 20.000 bees and made sure they were treated with care, because ultimately every bee is precious lately. This honey-making insect is alarmingly disappearing, while being incredibly essential to our environment.

Should men be able to give birth to children?


Joyce Nabuurs: To me this question seems to be a logical next step in the emancipation movement of the past century. More and more women entered the workspace, but the responsibility for pregnancy and childrearing remained female.
