Specially developed macro camera lenses are used to portray a year in the life of a working bee colony. Stunning images take viewers inside the innermost secrets of the hive. Sequences include the "wedding flight" of the colony's virgin queen as it mates in mid-air with a drone; the life-and-death battle between two rival queens for the colony's throne; and the defeat and death of a thieving wasp at the entrance to the hive. The film also explores such mysteries as the famous "waggle dance" with which scout bees signal the exact direction and distance of nectar sources to the rest of the hive. A vivid picture emerges of the bee's highly organized social life, revolving around the disciplined sharing of construction tasks, the collection of nectar, and warding off enemies

1000 unforgettable senior moments : of which we could remember only 246 by Thomas Friedman( Book )

4 editions published between 2006 and 2017 in English and held by 274 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The president who left the nuclear launch codes in a suit at the dry cleaners. The novelist who put the orange juice outside and the kitten in the refrigerator. The Russian general who left home in full military dress....minus his pants. The famous sex goddess who blew the same line through 52 takes. And the rock star who no longer remembers 1975. Filled with classic lapses, gaffes, and mental bloopers, 1,000 Unforgettable Senior Moments is a fabulous and witty gift for anyone of a certain age. And now it is updated, revised with more than 20 percent new stories, and repackaged in two color, making it an even more vibrant, visually appealing, fresh, and compellingly readable book. Anyone who's ever had a mental lapse will empathize with relative spring chicken Nicki Minaj, who, while accepting a BET Viewers' Choice Award, forgot why she was receiving the statuette (on live national television, no less). Or the team of astrophysicists who believed they had discovered proof of alien life-only to discover he signals were coming from the lunchroom microwave. Here's a best man forgetting to show up at the wedding, a musician leaving a priceless cello in a cab, the bank robber who wrote a holdup note on a paycheck stub that had his name and address printed on it, and the Fox studio chief who, when pressed by his leading lady to remember her name, offered "... Cleopatra?""--
