THE wild bee reels from bough to bough with her furry coat and her gauzy wing.
Scattered the few threads on her body
Still she was wandering to find out the spaces...
(Here are few spaces for her to bite...All Face Book Lovers)
Released her to make that vow.
To Just stroke once..

Now in a lily-cup, and now
Setting a jacinth bell a-swing,
In his wandering;
Sit closer love: it was here I throw
I made that vow,

Swore that two lives should be like one
As long as the sea-gull loved the sea,
As long as the sunflower sought the sun,--
It shall be, I said, for eternity
'Twixt you and me!
Dear friend, those times are over and done,
Love's web is spun.

Look upward where the poplar trees
Sway and sway in the summer air,
Here in the valley never a breeze
Scatters the thistledown, but there
Great winds blow fair
From the mighty murmuring mystical seas,
And the wave-lashed leas.

Look upward where the white gull screams,
What does it see that we do not see?
Is that a star? or the lamp that gleams
On some outward voyaging argosy,--
Ah! can it be
We have lived our lives in a land of dreams!
How sad it seems.

Sweet, there is nothing left to say
But this, that love is never lost,
Keen winter stabs the breasts of May
Whose crimson roses burst his frost,
Ships tempest-tossed
Will find a harbour in some bay,
And so we may.

And there is nothing left to do
But to kiss once again, and part,
Nay, there is nothing we should rue,
I have my beauty,--you your Art,
Nay, do not start,
One world was not enough for two
Like me and…...

Burt Bee

...General comments on Burt’s Bee (BB) case Burt's Bees is an American personal care products company that describes itself as an "Earth friendly, Natural Personal Care Company" making products for personal care, health, beauty, and personal hygiene. Burt's Bees originated in Maine as a candle making partnership between Roxanne Quimby and Burt Shavitz in 1984. As of 2007, they manufactured over 197 products for facial and body skin care, lip care, hair care, baby care, men's grooming, and outdoor remedies distributed in nearly 30,000 retail outlets including grocery stores and drug store chains across the United States, United Kingdom, Ireland, Canada, Hong Kong, and Taiwan from their headquarters in Durham, North Carolina. In late 2007, the Clorox Company acquired Burt's Bees for the reported sum of USD 925 mil. Not bad at all! It started out as a life style business to become a high potential venture, far exceeding original expectations and forecasts. The case is thought provoking as the business becomes highly successful, and raises new conflicts and decisions for Roxanne.

...Quality Associates, Inc., a consulting firm, advises its clients about sampling and statistical procedures that can be used to control their manufacturing processes. IN one particular application, a client game quality associates a sample of 800 observations taken during a time in which that client's process was operating satisfactorily. The sample standard deviation for there data was .21 ; hence, with so much data, the population standard deviation was assumed to be .21. Quality associates then suggested that random samples of size 30 be taken periodically to monitor the process on an ongoing basis. BY analyzing the new samples, the client could quickly learn whether the process was operating satisfactorily. when the process was not operating satisfactorily, corrective action could be take to eliminate the problem. the design specification indicated the mean for the process should be 12. the hypothesis test suggested Quality Associates follows. : μ=12 : μ12 Corrective action will be take any time H0 is rejected. The following samples were collected at hourly intervals during the first day of operation of the new statistical process control procedure. These data are available in the data set Quality .

The Red Bee Sting Ronald

...The Red Bee Stings Ronald (Why Jollibee beats McDonald’s) “There is no sincerer love than the love of food.” This is what George Bernard Shaw quoted in the film Man and Superman. Yes, it is indeed an undeniable truth that we Filipinos really do love to eat. Maybe this has been the idea behind the fast food chains that pop up like mushrooms and spread like viruses in the Philippines. Restaurants, carinderias, food stalls and fast food chains: it is not hard to look for them in wherever place in the Philippines. We all know that when we say “fast food”, two major chains instantly come up to our minds: Jollibee and McDonald’s, and we know that ever since, they have been rivals even they say that they both have the same mission and that is to serve and make their Filipino customers happy through the food they prepare. Though they serve almost the same types of food, how come Jollibee beats Mcdonald’s? What do you think that red, happy bee has that the clown in yellow with a big smile has not? Before finding out the real reason that lies behind that, in order to come up with a systematic answer, let us first try to answer this question: “Why do people go to fast food chains?” Just like what I have mentioned a while ago, Filipinos has an extreme passion for food. It has already been a part of our culture to be lovers of food. But, not all can prepare food… right? I mean we all know how to eat but not all of us know how to cook. So, we ask......

Even a little frightened. She worked for a female partner in a big consulting firm. Her boss was so solicitous that Kelly hoped the woman—one of just a few top female partners—might become her mentor. But she began to feel that something was wrong. In meetings, her boss would dismiss her ideas without discussion and even cut her off in mid-sentence. Kelly started to hear about meetings to which she wasn't invited but felt she should be. She was excluded from her boss's small circle of confidants. What confused Kelly was that she was otherwise doing well at the firm. She felt respected and supported by the other senior partners. She had just one problem, but it was a big one.

ABC simulates the intelligent foraging behaviour of a honeybee swarm. In this work, ABC is used for optimizing a large set of numerical test functions and the results produced by ABC algorithm are compared with the results obtained by genetic algorithm, particle swarm optimization algorithm, differential evolution algorithm and evolution strategies. Results show that the performance of the ABC is better than or similar to those of other population-based algorithms with the advantage of employing fewer control parameters. Ó 2009 Elsevier Inc.

Film Analysis of Akeelah and the Bee

...Running head: FILM ANALYSIS OF AKEELAH AND THE BEE 1 Film Analysis of Akeelah and the Bee Miranda Clark (5568546) Word Count: 1561 Brock University Running head: FILM ANALYSIS OF AKEELAH AND THE BEE 2 This film is about an 11 year old girl by the name of Akeelah Anderson who has a hidden talent of being a really great speller. However her environment around her seems to interfere with her ability to be more independent and focus on school. Her dad was shot when she was only six, her family ignores her for their priorities such as work, children, and friends. Akeelah joins a spelling being to avoid having to attend detention for her absences at school suggested by her principal and teachers. Akeelah ends up succeeding and making it to the Scripps National Spelling Bee where she ends up winning the competition. I chose this film over the other films that were options because it was a film I have not seen yet as well as I felt like it would be a great film to analyze because of the black community the film is based in due to the fact that a lot of neglect and racism happens in black communities. Depending on the surroundings of these communities, children react differently based on what occurs. In this film, children and youth are depicted very differently depending on their surroundings as well as family situation. Akeelah is growing up in a community where bullying and racism occurs more often due to race and culture. An example of this in the film is when some...

Royal Bee

... STUDI KASUS : Royal Bee Electric Fishing Reel Studi kasus ini membahas tentang seseorang yang bernama Royal Barton yang mempunyai hobi berburu dan memancing sejak kecil. Hobi maupun kegemarannya ini dia peroleh dari ayahnya yang juga sangat gemar untuk berburu dan memancing. Namun ketika sang ayah terkena serangan stroke, hobi memancing sang ayah harus berhenti. Hal ini dikarenakan stroke telah menyebabkan tangan ayahnya menjadi tidak berfungsi, sehingga sangat mustahil untuk dapat memegang alat pancing apalagi untuk memancing seperti biasanya. Oleh karena itu, Royal Barton memiliki ide untuk membuat sebuah alat pancing yang bisa digunakan untuk orang-orang yang memiliki keterbatasan secara fisik, dimana alat pancing ini nantinya diproyeksikan tidak hanya dapat digunakan oleh sang ayah tetapi juga oleh orang-orang yang tidak beruntung yang memiliki keterbatasan fisik lainnya. Setelah menghabiskan biaya yang tidak sedikit serta waktu bertahun-tahun untuk mewujudkan cita-citanya membuat alat pancing yang dapat digunakan oleh sang ayah dan orang-orang yang memiliki keterbatasan fisik, akhirnya Royal Barton menemukan sebuah alat yang dapat menjadikan alat pancing tradisional menjadi alat pancing elektrik. Alat temuannya ini berdimensi kecil sehingga dapat dibawa kemana-mana serta mempunyai berbagai aplikasi yang luar biasa. Paragraf-paragraf di atas merupakan penggalan studi kasus yang akan kita bahas. Dan berikut ini adalah pertanyaan-pertanyaan yang muncul dari studi kasus......

...and present the possibility of further human development on earth. » Did you know that bees pollinate the majority of our fruits and vegetables? > Global Research of CA has found that just within the last five years, “30% of the national bee population has disappeared and nearly a third of all bee colonies in the U.S. have perished.” (Statistic, Global Research Of California) • Bees are going extinct at this high rate due to climate change, pesticides, diseases, and parasites. > Honeybees and the other pollinators have the invaluable job of pollinating that provides us with “approximately one-third of everything we eat!” according to OneGreenPlanet.org (Statistic, Tucker) • Yet we still take advantage and continue to let their population decline. » Today I will be talking about how pollination works, the benefits bees have on our world, and what people are doing to prevent the decline of the bee population any further. Transition: The most important thing that bees do is pollinate. Pollination is needed for plants to reproduce, and so many plants depend on bees as pollinators. (Explanation) Body #1 » When a bee comes to collect nectar and pollen from the flower of a plant, some pollen sticks to the hairs of their bodies. > When the bee travels to the next flower, some of the pollen, on its body, is rubbed off and fertilization is made possible. » Plants rely on bees and other insects to reproduce, so they have adapted to become more attractive to them. > Bees......

Medical Use of Honey Bee Products

...Medical Use of Honey Bee Products Apitherapy is the use of honey bee products in treating illnesses and diseases. Apis means “bee” while “therapy” is a treatment intended to relieve or heal a disorder. The different products derived from the beehive which can be used in apitherapy are: honey, pollen, propolis, venom, wax and royal jelly. Being from different cultural and ethnic backgrounds, we all have been exposed to honey bees and their products in unique ways. Despite our differences, collectively, we share great interest in the application of honey, bee venom (BV) and propolis in contemporary medicinal practices. In the following paragraphs each member shares their personal exposure with bees and why they have an interest in the medicinal use of BV. Mai As a young boy, my father intentionally interfered with bees in order to get stung. Now, being an adult, he is immune to bee stings, showing no signs of inflammation after a bee sting. The first time I got stung by a bee I was 7 years old. It hurt so badly and one thing was sure: “I would not walk in my father’s footsteps, when it comes to the subject bee stings.” In university, a classmate mentioned that BV contains certain chemicals which are beneficial to multiple sclerosis (MS) patients. Although my first experience was unpleasant, I started to believe that bees can be useful. Good story: it reveals the sources of your curiosities and it draws out social issues. Morayo “They sting!

...notes for quality from quality book HEALTHCARE QUALITY AND THE PATIENT Maulik S. Joshi and Donald Berwick Quality in the U.S. healthcare system is not what it should be. People were aware of this issue for years from personal stories and anecdotes. Around the end of the last century, three major reports revealed evidence of this quality deficiency: • The Institute of Medicine’s (IOM) National Roundtable on Health Care Quality report, “The Urgent Need to Improve Health Care Quality” (Chassin and Galvin 1998) • To Err Is Human (Kohn, Corrigan, and Donaldson 2000) • IOM’s Crossing the Quality Chasm (IOM 2001) These three reports made a tremendous statement and called for action on the state of healthcare, its gaps, and the opportunity to improve its quality in the United States to unprecedented levels. Before we begin discussion of these reports, however, let us begin by defining quality, its evolution, and its implications on our work as healthcare professionals. Avedis Donabedian, one of the pioneers in understanding approaches to quality, discussed in detail the various definitions of quality in relation to perspective. Among his conceptual constructs of quality, one view of Donabedian’s (1990) rang particularly true: “The balance of health benefits and harm is the essential core of a definition of quality.” The question of balance between benefit and harm is empirical and points to medicine’s essential chimerism: one part science and one part art......

...According to all known laws of aviation, there is no way a bee should be able to fly. Its wings are too small to get its fat little body off the ground. The bee, of course, flies anyway because bees don't care what humans think is impossible. Yellow, black. Yellow, black. Yellow, black. Yellow, black. Ooh, black and yellow! Let's shake it up a little. Barry! Breakfast is ready! Ooming! Hang on a second. Hello? - Barry? - Adam? - Oan you believe this is happening? - I can't. I'll pick you up. Looking sharp.

Honey Bee

...Drones are produced from unfertilized eggs and therefore represent only the DNA of the queen that laid the eggs, i.e. have only a mother. Workers and queens result from fertilized eggs and therefore have both a mother and a father. A modified form of Parthenogenesis controls sex differentiation. The sex Allele is Polymorphic and so long as two different variants are present, a female bee results. If both sex alleles are identical, diploid drones are produced. Honeybees detect and destroy diploid drones after the eggs hatch. Queens typically mate with multiple drones on more than one mating flight. Once mated, they lay eggs and fertilize them as needed from sperm stored in the Spermatheca. Since the number of sex alleles is limited - about 18 are known in Apis - there is a high probability that a queen will mate with one or more drones having sex alleles identical with one of the sex alleles in the queen. It is therefore typical for a queen to produce a percentage of diploid drone eggs. [edit]Micrapis Apis florea and Apis andreniformis are small honey bees of southern and southeastern Asia. They make very small, exposed nests in trees and shrubs. Their stings are often incapable of penetrating human skin, so the hive and swarms can be handled with minimal protection. They occur largely sympatrically though they are very distinct evolutionarily and are probably the result of allopatric speciation, their distribution later converging. Given that A. florea is more widely......
