[Best Syndication] Researchers have new understandings as to what may be causing the death tens of billions of honeybees. Previous conjecture of the massive reduction of the bee population was linked to cell phones. Researchers from Columbia University have pinpointed a virus that would cause the death of so many bees.

The researchers were able to use a Genome Sequencer™ system to identify the virus. The study is called, "A metagenomic survey of microbes in honey bee colony collapse disorder." It can be read in the online edition of Science.

Dr. Ian Lipkin, Professor of Epidemiology at Columbia University’s Mailman School of Public Health along with his colleagues sequenced 454 DNA and RNA samples that were collected from bee colonies. In this study, they were able to identify five major bacterial clusters, four different fungi and seven varieties of viruses.

The arrests were made on Tuesday at 2:30 pm local time in the village of Oberschledorn, in the state of North Rhine-Westphalia, according to a report from the BBC.

Kouchner and Maliki

(Best Syndication) The rhetoric is heating up between US politicians and Iraqi Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki. Many in Congress have questioned the intentions of the Iraqi government saying that political reconciliation has stalled. But now two US Senators in particular have become a little more personal with the Iraqi Prime Minister.

Senators Hillary Clinton and Carl Levin are urging the Iraqi ministers to choose someone else to be Prime Minister. Maliki fired back immediately. “Leaders like Hillary Clinton and Carl Levin have not experienced in their political lives the kind of differences we have in Iraq. When they give their judgment they have no knowledge of what reconciliation means,” he said.
