New York Times, Beekeeping, and Expanding Vocabulary

There are frequent articles on the New York Times about beekeeping.   I encourage scouts to stay up-to-date on beekeeping news and send me links to articles if you see them (anywhere).  Here is an article from the New York Times with some interesting scientific background on honey bees, their evolution, and human interactions.  Scouts might also want to watch the progress of other beekeepers.   Here is a link to a beekeeper’s blog at the New York Times.  Beekeeping blogs are great and all, but there is life outside of the hive.  I urge scouts to expand their horizons and broaden their vocabulary.  If you have never used the word simulacrum in a sentence, then I recommend that you browse the blog of a Andreas Forster, a former Salt Lake City resident living for the moment in London.  English is not, by the way, Andreas’s first language.
