 Beekeeping - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Beekeeping (or apiculture, from Latin apis, a bee) is the practice of intentional maintenance of honeybee hives by humans.
To reproduce and survive, a colony of bees tries to accumulate a surplus of provisions (nectar and pollen) during the more favorable seasons (when there is a lot of forage, such as flowers available, along with good weather) in order to be able to survive the more unfavourable seasons.
The bees appear to be calmed with a puff of smoke, which triggers a feeding response in anticipation of possible hive abandonment due to fire and masking any alarm pheromones.

 Motivating Factors in E-learning — A Case Study of UNITAR
Internet-based learning, if it is based on interactive approaches to learning in which students are treated as co-discoverers of knowledge and asked to work in teams, has the potential to capitalize on adult learners’ prior knowledge and experiences in a way that traditional approaches have often failed to do.
Learning styles may be described as sets of conditions under which learners prefer to work.
Learning at your own time, pace, and space seems to be the most appropriate positioning for such courses.

Research on honey bee communication during the 1940s and 1950s, then, still relied heavily upon the notion that the behavior of these small animals was largely "innate" or "instinctive" (see the von Frisch epigraph).
Earlier workers must have observed the same "communication by means of conditioned response" behavior among recruited bees but had apparently failed to recognize its potential significance during the recruitment of experienced foragers to food sources.

 Africanized bee - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Africanized bees in the western hemisphere descended from 26 Tanzanian queen bees accidentally released in 1957 in southern Brazil from hives operated by biologist Warwick E. Kerr, who had interbred European honeybees and bees from southern Africa.
Thus Africanized bees are expected to be a hazard mostly in the Southern States of the United States.
In Mexico, where Africanized bees are well established, pollination beekeepers have found that a purchased and pre-bred non-Africanized queen may be used to locally create a first generation of virgin queens that are then bred in an uncontrolled fashion with the local wild Africanized drones.
