To track the bees' behavior, the team superglued tiny RFID tags to the backs of the bees. Each tag weighs only 2 to 3 percent of the bee's weight. A Y-tube connects the hive to two arenas, one that offers pollen and one that offers nectar. When a bee leaves the hive to forage, it can choose to go to the pollen chamber or the nectar chamber. Two RFID readers mounted at the entrance keep track of the bees going in and out and help the researchers collect a wealth of data. This setup gives us information about directionality, Russell explains. Is the forager leaving or returning from foraging? We also get an idea of whether a bee goes from one chamber to the other, or whether it makes repeated trips to only one chamber, and we get to know how long the trips were. Cheap tags add paper to the Internet of Things Since the team was especially interested in the sequence of the foraging trips over the course of the day, some heavy lifting was needed to make sense of all the data, so Russell enlisted the help of Sarah Morrison, a doctoral student in the UA's Lunar and Planetary Laboratory, who studies orbital dynamics and the evolution of solar systems.

In other news. Plans to demolish and rebuild a famous shop in Mytholmroyd to protect it from flooding, will be be decided on by councillors later today. Russell Dean furniture store was flooded in 2012 and again in 2015. The owners now want to raise the height of the building, lifting the showroom off the ground floor to protect it from future floods. A woman from Harrogate who managed to save her husband's life because she'd had CPR training is calling for the same skills to be taught in schools and workplaces.

We could be just three years away from the first commercial flight lifting off from a UK space port. The proposed space flight Bill would also see satellites launched from regions across the UK and give scientists the ability to fly to the edge of space and conduct experiments in zero gravity experiments in zero gravity.

SS: Celebrations of Iran’s Islamic Revolution anniversary turned into a hundred-thousand strong protest against America complete with burning of American flags and trampling on Trump dummies. Despite the nuclear deal, lifting of sanctions partially is the Iranian public just as opposed to the US as before? What's your feeling? SM: What you've mentioned about the anniversary of Iranian Revolution this has been, actually, the same during 38 years. It has not change. We've always have had the same slogan from Iranian side, always we have had the same slogan from the American side. It was Trump administration saying Iran is the state terrorism, it is the most dangerous country they made, also, the same very-very negative threatening slogans. It is from both capitals, and this is not something new. However, we had the nuclear deal, it was definitely one step forward, but in parallel, when the nuclear deal was signed in July 2015, since then we had about 80 legislations proposed by the U.

Now ex-Radical Party member of parliament Andrey Artemenko came under criticism from all sides after the New York Times revealed on Feb. 19 that he was trying to broker his own peace plan to end Russia's war against Ukraine. The plan was distinctly pro-Russian, but even the Russians rejected it and his freelance, amateurish diplomacy got him kicked out of his own party, although he remains a member of parliament. His ideas included leasing Crimea to Russia for 50 years and the lifting of economic sanctions against Russia by U.S. President Donald J. Trump. Dmitry Peskov, Vladimir Putin’s press secretary, denied prior knowledge of the sealed plan, which includes a suggestion that Ukraine lease Crimea to Russia, which annexed the region in 2014, the Telegraph in London quoted him as saying. “There's nothing to talk about. How can Russia rent its own region from itself? Peskov said.

Indeed, Stefano is best known for his modified Guzzis—so it’s a surprise to see him switch from Italy to Japan. But that was at Brett’s insistence: “And since he is one of the best people on this planet, I agreed!” Stefano is obsessive about quality, and works with top-class craftsmen to get the results he wants. In this case, fabricator Lou Niziri modified the original Kawasaki tank to subtly change its lines, and add cutouts for the rider to grip. The bikini fairing is the bare minimum required for windflow deflection; it’s a modified Moto Guzzi item, lifted from a Le Mans racebike. The heavy lifting is at the front end, performed by workshop wizard Erik Green. The forks and front brakes are from a Honda CBR1000RR Fireblade, upgraded with custom rotors—a significant leap in performance beyond the spindly originals. The rotors have been custom-made to work with the original Kawasaki wheels, which still look good 36 years on.

S. intelligence agencies that the hacking was aimed at electing Trump. Many Democrats today remain furious about that timetable, wondering whether Obama’s hesitant response to the hacking and unwillingness to speak out more forcefully before Nov. 8 may have inadvertently helped Trump win the presidency. Regardless, the conversation with Schiff makes clear that there’s an entirely new politics to Russia in the U.S. today, and nowhere more so than on Capitol Hill, where historically it has been Republicans who, even long after the end of the Cold War and collapse of the Soviet Union 25 years ago, remained much more critical of Putin’s heavy-handed rule and expansionist foreign policy across the former Soviet territory. For the most part, they still are—and when reports circulated that Trump’s White House was considering lifting some sanctions on Russia as an early executive order, it was strong pushback from Republicans on the Hill, including Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, that helped to table, or at least delay, whatever plans there were; the subsequent furor over Flynn and his Russia entanglements makes that even less likely to proceed for now.

All the rest will be as liberal as possible, including the absence of restrictions on largest concentration of land, he said at the press conference. Martyniuk said that if the market is launched in a smart way, with the gradual lifting of restrictions, this could result in development of rural areas. If the Rada fails to pass adequate bills and fails to unblock the moratorium issue, and the Constitution Court makes its decision, the liberal model would result in the quick transfer of smaller land owners' parcels to more effective agroholdings and the medium link would fall out of the process, he said. He said that the Agricultural Policy and Food Ministry jointly with the World Bank is drawing up its own bill on farmland turnover. I think before the Constitutional Court makes its decision, the government would present its vision of options to lift the moratorium, he said.
