People have made the life of honeybee that mimics the natural environment so as to facilitate extraction of honey.

Due to lush in the goodness of honey from honey bee’s people have been keeping bees from 15,000 years ago. This is before the agricultural revolution started that is 10, 000 years ago.

There are estimated seven species of honeybees discovered today.

Facts about Honeybee

1. Production of Queen

Queen is produced by the feeding of the royal jelly to the larva by workers. The development of queen takes 16 days. The selected feeding of the larva by workers develops into the queen bee.

2. Mating of Queen

Mating of queen happens once in a life with 12 to 15 drones. The drone, which is the male bees, dies immediately after mating.

3. Drones

The unfertilized egg produces the Drones. It takes 24 days for the drones to develop. They do not work in the hive and often refers to the male bee. The sole purpose of the Drones is for mating with the queen bee.

4. Workers

Workers are producing from the fertilized egg. The workers do the all the vital activities in the hive according to the command of the queen. The development of worker takes 21 days. The numbers of workers in honeybees are more than sixty thousand in one hive. Workers can also be referred to as a sexually immature female.

5. Dance

There is various type of dance in the honeybee colony. Each type of dance indicates the average distance of the food. Some common types of dance are the waggle dance and Round dance.

6. Honey

The honey stomach produces this. When the honey stomach is filled with the nectar the workers return to the hive. The intensive chewing of the nectars for half an hour produce the honey and store in the honeycomb.

7. Uses of Honeybee

Honeybee helps in pollination of the plant. Pollination is the process of transfer from the anther to the stigma of the flower. This process happens automatically when the bee moves from flowers to flowers.

8. Sting

The bees die when sting because of the loss of the valuable organ. This is due to the loss of the part of the abdomen, digestive tract, muscle, and nerve. Honeybees are the only known species that dies after biting.

9. Pheromones

Pheromones are the chemical secretion that carries the specific signals. The release of specific pheromones triggers specific command. Pheromones are the vital mode of communication in the insect.

10. Life Span of Honeybees

The lifespan of honeybee differs greatly with the species and the climatic conditions. The average normal lifespan ranges from one to six months.

Communism is the ideology developed by German philosopher and sociologist coined Karl Marx in 1940s. According to the communist ideology, common ownership of good are stressed. Although the root of this tenets dates back to a long time back.
This ideology predicts that property should be handled by the government and need to abolish the private property. Establishing the law and order followed by equality can make the economy of country prosperous.
Communism theory was based on the book by Charles Darwin named origin of species. The book predicts that human beings are the animals and are the by-product of long-term evolution over the thousands of years. Due to this, I will like to call Charles Darwin as the father of communism.

The first application of the communism was done in French where the priests from the church are brutally put to death. It was the unsuccessful revelation. Later Vladimir Lenin from Russia makes the modification in this tenet and did the successful revelation. …

Metallic Hydrogen: Superconductor Discovery and Skeptics

Hydrogen is the first element of Group 1 of the periodic table and is abundant in nature. They have one proton and one elector. Freezing at 253-degree centigrade hydrogen become liquid and is widely used in Rocket fuel. Under normal atmospheric pressure hydrogen atom pair up to form the hydrogen molecule. The metallic property of the hydrogen is displayed when it loses the electron.
First Hypothesis on Metallic Hydrogen
The scientist named Eugene Wigner and Hillard Bell Huntington, the Princeton physicist hypothesized that massive pressure on the hydrogen turns it into the metal. This was hypothesized in the year 1935 (1). Until now there has not been any successful experiment to test this hypothesis.

Metallic Hydrogen Discovery
The Post-doctorate researcher Dr. Silvera and Ranga P. Dias has published the finding of metallic hydrogen in Journal science. The published journal claims that they have made metallic hydrogen by applying 495 Gigapascals pressure at the temperature -268-degr…
