.....The greatest changes occur in their country without their cooperation. They are not even aware of precisely what has taken place. They suspect it; they have heard of the event by chance. More than that, they are unconcerned with the fortunes of their village, the safety of their streets, the fate of their church and its vestry. They think that such things have nothing to do with them, that they belong to a powerful stranger called the government. They enjoy these goods as tenants, without a sense of ownership, and never give a thought to how they might be improved.....

From the July issue of Bee Culture (page 14): "...N. cerana prevalence in the U.S. has found the parasite to be widespread and to be in samples collected as far back as 2000... recent work has concluded that N. Ceranae is not likely the cause of CCD."

Dr. Nancy Ostiguy of Penn State spoke on the latest CCD research at the HAS conference last week. She said there have been some interesting findings - hinted at a completely new virus - but couldn't go into a lot of detail because the research paper is currently being peer-reviewed. Stay tuned....
