Bees are small creatures individually, but together in a swarm they can take down a very large animal. When bees swarm they go into a frenzy and buzz a lot as we know? But really why do they do that? One online think tank member recently asked;
"Does the combined sound they make trigger a bee adrenaline reaction, which intensifies as they group closer together?"
Yes I guess there are chemical release issues, which are triggered by the swarming frenzy and the sound could be part of ...more
We know from nature that small creatures working together can accomplish more when they get together and work as a team. Swarming is one of the ways that nature's tiniest creatures can do this. Many insects swarm for instance; wasps, hornets, yellow jackets, bees and even those tremendous Locust Plagues.
When Bees swarm they Buzz and make sounds, but why? One member of a think tank asked this question with regards to tightness of swarming formation; "Are they are communicating with soun ...more
We all know that the Killer Bees have already invaded the United States of America and have killed people, pets and animals by swarming them and stinging them to death. Bummer indeed and it is quite serious for many towns in many South Western Regions in the US. But can we stop these ferocious killer bee swarms?
Is there a way to prevent them from swarming? One researcher Mr. Warren Powers believes so and he stated his theory to stop them using high-powered sound waves. In an online thi ...more
Bees fly around and buzz, just like many other insects. Does this buzzing help them fly? Some believe it just might assist the bees in flying a little? How so you ask? Well recently in an online think tank a gentleman stated;
"I suspect the resonate (or multiples of resonance) frequency is quite high as compared to the frequency of the wing cycling through the air to generate lift via pumping action."
This is an interesting comment indeed. So the wings make the bee buzz is that it ...more
Can you trust your physics instructor? Yes for the most part you can sure, but. It appears to me we cannot trust physics instructors in every regard. Too many theories being purported and mathematically calculated with proofs, only years later to find out they were are wrong. When observation negates the physics instructor, one should hesitate. Trust no one. It is much easier that way and a smarter way to live.
Many will say that you cannot break the laws of physics, but indeed many are ...more
Are solar, wind and nuclear power an impractical pipe dream? If you answered "yes," it's time to review and update your thinking.
Due to a global supply and demand imbalance, crude oil prices are skyrocketing and will continue to do so for years to come.
The price per barrel most likely will increase to $75 in a few months and easily top $100 this year, driving up consumer gas prices.
No new oil refineries have been built in the USA since 1976, some 30 years ago. Ex ...more
There has been quite a lot of talk about taking sound waves to control organic insects with or even to use to stop locust plagues or steer bee swarms. But the more I look at this the more I want to build a micro-mechanical flying insect rather than screw around destroying the bugs. Then use the sound waves to help keep them aloft.
It would be great to study them and Bees make the most sense because we already know how to control them. We get a big aircraft hanger and draw lines on the f ...more
Well NASA has plotted out a bold plan to put a moon base camp up there by 2020? Bold, that is not bold, that is BS. Come on we are in the year 2006 and surely we have come further than this. This is utter non-sense and weakness. A business with such a lofty timeline would be out of business by then, only government can get away with such crap.
You see folks; weakness is not an American Trait, and for those that think it is, they have no business talking about the future. We go because w ...more
Some at NASA want to screw around and stretch out the lunar schedule and maybe do something worthwhile by 2020? Why wait? You see the way I see it is that; Time is of the essence. Taking one's time is for weak people and low-tolerance risk takers. Indeed we must press on, not act like a bunch of chickens.
Recently in an online think tank a guest speaker stated; "What's the big deal about getting to Mars quickly? Why reapeat the mistake of Apollo? Why go to Mars before we have the abilit ...more
Can we land the space shuttle on the moon? Some say it is impossible, but not all. One idea floated in an online think tank recently was to set up an aircraft carrier style arresting hook and allow the space shuttle to land on a flat area or semi hard run way. Of course such a crazy stunt could be risky, but what if it could be done?
One guest to the online think tank thought for sure it could not work because a Space Shuttle would be in orbit around the moon at 530 meters per second an ...more
