I checked and the honey was about 75% capped so I left it. They had almost glued the top shut though. I had to do some good pulling to get it up.

Nope I am right about Iran being a rational actor

The state and religion are one.  If the religious ideology is not rational (by our standards) then the state is not rational........

what I find not bright is to not accept that they are a rational actor and will seek their own destruction bases off yours own deductions. I will wait to read from actual scholars not the links you provided. But in the mean time I will research scholars not biased accounts the fit my views of the world.

Since you did not care to look at what I posted, I am not sure how you evaluate the bias, but I am sure you will search for unbiased scholars.  After all, they will tell you that Iran is a rational actor and you will go to bed all warm a fuzzy and safe.

If I ever offend in any personal way please let me know as that is not my intent ever.

I am not easily offended.  I am often frustrated by a country full of people, who have the information of the world in their pockets and fail to exhibit any curiosity or care about what is going on around them. 


Why? Has always been the most important question for me to ask.  Why do people think what they think, do what they do, etc.  In our arrogance, believing that WE are the cause of everything from climate change to the attitudes and actions of other peoples, we fail to look deeper.  Failure to understand motivations means failure to plan and act in a way that is meaningful.  We fail with Iran because we do not understand their motivations.

Iran is rational by its own standards. It also seeks to preserve its regime. As for your sources I don't take Reza is a source I am up in the air about. I don't count him as solid. That is why I will look else where. I do feel your pain. I do feel you have been blinded by ideology. YOu say we have the world's information at our fingertips but you provided a link to a guy who is a self proclaimed double agent and who has credibility issues. So I wonder do you partake in self enforced group think and have you ever looked out to those who disagree with you. I don't feel warm and fuzzy about Iran. They are a regional instigator. They have their reasons and I do find them to be a rational actor so I don't think they will destroy themselves or the world but will still be a problem in the world. That is why I support sanctions on them and why I support inspecting their nuclear program. You act as if I am their friend and think we should just let them be.

DISEASE & PEST CONTROL / Re: European Foul Brood
« Last post by AR Beekeeper on June 27, 2017, 10:59:51 AM »
One reason for treating EFB, rather than just a brood break, is that even if the disease disappears the reinfection rate is over 20% without the antibiotic treatment and only 4% reinfection if Terramycin is used.  Some reports say that feeding and a brood break is no longer removing the disease.

Dr. C. C. Miller found that if an infected colony was made strong by adding young bees from a non-infected colony, the old queen removed and 10 days later a new young queen introduced, and the colony was fed syrup during the 10 day period, the bees would remove the sick larvae and clean the cells of infectious materials.  He said that even with his treatment reinfection of 25% or more would occur and would need to be retreated the following year.

If they are purchased bottles in their cartons you don't need to sanitize.  If not, washing is acceptable.  The issue is drying.  They must be dry.  Placing them in the oven at 200 degrees works great.  I have stored boxes of honey frames in the freezer for a couple of months.  Depending on the nectar source you can get crystallization so waiting a couple of months is not the best idea but it is better then not harvesting at all.
Edit:
If you extract it and don't bottle it try to keep it in the freezer.

I am going to extract today and will try to bottle after the 4th.

By that we mean that the state is a rational actor in that it seeks to preserve itself and governance, it seeks to further the power and goals of the state, and the state takes steps to achieve said goals. When poly science people talk about rational actors in political science that is what we mean.

Then you are still wrong about Iran.

I don't know a lot about Muslim endtime beliefs though but sponsoring terrorism is not an only Iranian thing.

You are correct.  My comments only went to the why part of Irans actions.  The same applies to other groups like ISIS.

Quote
Perhaps you will have to explain better how this is going to lead them to nuking everyone including themselves and how this unites the Muslim world?

As you say, you don't know much about their end times beliefs.  It was my intention to point you toward knowledge, not try to share all that I have learned over the years.

  You may investigate or not, as you wish, but I reject your knee-jerk bashing of what I say based on your misplaced idea that we must accept and embrace other ideologies if we wish to be loved back.  That's not how these folks think and your kind of thinking gets people killed.

I accept that you are not trying to be mean.  You are not capable of thinking outside the...how did you put it...garbage...that you have been fed and now regurgitate.

Lets break this down.

Can you point out where I said we have to accept and embrace anything? Iran is 100% an enemies of ours, I support their sanctions, I support inspections, what I find not bright is to not accept that they are a rational actor and will seek their own destruction bases off yours own deductions. I will wait to read from actual scholars not the links you provided. But in the mean time I will research scholars not biased accounts the fit my views of the world.

Odd you say I can't think outside of the box but all that know me find thta I never even visited the box in most of my thoughts. What is that saying about assumptions......

You are right though I am not trying to be mean and I do find you to be a very intelligible person. Never take anything I say as a true insult. This is a debate and argument and I see it as part of the tussle of ideas. If I ever offend in any personal way please let me know as that is not my intent ever.
