If this is even half true, it's pretty terrible.
Capitalism certainly does things like this.
In 2016, there were 2.78 million honeybee colonies in the United States—16 percent more than when the disorder hit in 2006. In fact, there are more honeybee colonies in the country today than in nearly 25 years. Honey production also shows no pattern of decline.
Hint: really, really low.
Talk about "moving the goalposts"!
You know what they say about what "one picture" is worth.

Yo, Shake Shack! We fixed that HB2 problem you were so concerned about. Why don't you bring that fine-sounding sandwich to North Carolina?
Now that, sadly, Wayne has left Man. U., take a quick look at five of his best goals including, of course, the magnificent bicycle kick against Man City.
"The Tinder trick: Why women on dating sites take their selfies from above . . . and men from below"
Information the young people need to know.
The song's kinda catchy, but the video raises a question: the sisters are walking down Ventura Blvd.--one of the main drags of the Valley and "the world's longest avenue of mom & pop businesses"--that is utterly deserted for several blocks--from Beverly Glen to Van Nuys--from 6 to 8 a.m. No cars, no pedestrians, no anything. What does it cost, I wonder, to get a permit to do that? And just for a music video??
This will be quite cool if it actually works this time.
As for the science, Healbe claims that it uses a piezoelectric impedance sensor to push high- and low-frequency signals through your wrist. Shortly after eating, the cells in your bloodstream begin releasing water as they absorb the new glucose. The device, so the company says, can use the impedance signals to look at the size and shape of the cells, and track the change in water. From there, it's just a case of using fancy math to calculate the amount of food you've noshed in a sitting.
That's one heck of a portfolio, Your Majesty.
This would be very cool if it holds up.
A bittersweet story that involve a former NCSU star.
I think this is, at best, a partial answer, but a partial answer to a good question: Why are movies today so long? And I'd refine the question a bit: Why do so many movies nowadays have scenes that seem to have no purpose?
Two conjectures that came to my mind don't seem to hold up: 1) the extraneous scenes are there to be cut when the movie shows on commercial TV and 2) the scenes are there to pad the movie to some minimum running time deemed respectable for exhibiting in theaters. The reason I don't think they work is because both would have applied for quite some time while the lengthening of movies seems to be a recent phenomenon.
"More research is needed."
A nominee for Story of the Year.
Yes, this sounds like 2017, all right.
"The Arby's CEO asked 1,000 US employees the same question before his hugely successful brand turnaround"
It doesn't mention the recent clever, effective advertising, but I guess they'd say that the ads were based on the answers the CEO received to his question.
Mr. Redenbaugh sounds like an amazing guy.
Eight months later, and after countless surgeries on his partially working eye, Redenbaugh heard the verdict on his remaining sight as told to his inconsolable mother: “We have done all that we can do. He will be blind for the rest of his life.” What’s amazing is how the patient responded to news that would perhaps cause most to give up. Redenbaugh was relieved.
Machine learning is this generation's version of the "Plastics" in The Graduate.
"n the past year, Altmetric has tracked over 17 million mentions of 2.7 million different research outputs. These are the top 100 most-discussed journal articles of 2016."
I especially enjoyed this bit:
Ironically, [Michelle] Rhee’s successors at DCPS have redesigned teaching through some of the very policies that teachers’ unions and other Rhee adversaries opposed most strongly: comprehensive teacher evaluations, the abandonment of seniority-based staffing, and performance-based promotions and compensation. They combined these with other changes, like more collaboration among teachers, that these same critics had backed. Just as notably, the transformation is taking place not at charters but in the traditional public school system, an institution that many reformers have written off as too hidebound to innovate.
Could those "hidebound" regular public schools be responding to increasing, intense competition from charters? Hmmmm . . .
Nice story. One of a bunch I've read about the man.
Forget President Trump. He's a nouveau amateur. If you really want to make a Lefty's skin crawl just breathe the name "Koch".
Seems like an interesting idea.
Hillsboro is home to 6605 souls according to the last Census. Hey, WaPo and the Times, why don't you increase your viewpoint diversity by running his op-eds regularly?
"Don’t know what school choice is and why people feel so passionately about it? Watch the following video from Prager University. A young lady named Denisha Merriweather narrates and tells how school choice changed her life."
