Small Cell Research
« on: February 05, 2007, 10:25:49 PM »
well just wanted to let anyone that was wondering about small cell research know that I know for a fact the University of Georgia is starting its first year of studying small cell, Bill Owens (Billy Bob on Beesource) donated about 50 hives  (I think that the right number but will find out for sure soon) that are already regressed, now they will have 2 studies going, resistant bee's and small cell....... I am curious what they will find out because they have hives surviving that is on regular cells but its good for them to study small cell....... I get to go a few time's this year as a volunteer at UGA

that's super.  I'd like to know the results of a good study.  do you know how long they intend it to last?  i assume they are running controls along  with the resistant and small cell?

.....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.....
