@ThatSeanKeenan @AtlantaMagazine since i was not asked for my answers; here they are:
@ThatSeanKeenan @AtlantaMagazine #1-"the cop one"
unlike most mayoral candidates contending in this race; i believe in the abolition of our policing institutions. we can build a safety department which doesn't wield any lethal power(power no state should hold btw) #AbolishThePolice
@ThatSeanKeenan @AtlantaMagazine #2-"the crime one"
most crime is not a something we should fight from the top down but eliminate from the bottom up via assuring a society where needs are provided for; acts of desperation will be drastically reduced..

3/11. If you see an insect with a triangular head, bulging eyes, sitting upright with arms folded like in prayer, it is likely a ‘praying’ mantis.

Here is an example. It is not praying, but eating a bumblebee.

#WorldBeeDay: Despite their role in pollinating our plants, which are responsible for the sustenance of humans and mostly all other organisms on this planet, bee populations have been on a steady decline due to large-scale ignorance regarding their existence.

#WorldBeeDay2021
#WorldBeeDay2021: To conserve these ecologically significant pollinators, it is imperative to not only value their existence, but also understand its different components: habitats, behaviours, species diversity, shapes, colours and sizes.

हमारे देश में मधुमक्खी पालन का कोई माई बाप नहीं है। मधुमक्खी पालन सड़क पर पलता हुआ गरीब का वह बच्चा है जो अपनी लगन और मेहनत से यदि बड़ा होकर कुछ बन गया तो उसका श्रेय समाज और सरकार को चला जाता है और 1/n Image
यदि वह उचित मार्गदर्शन के अभाव में बिगड़ गया या खराब हो गया तो उसका दोष लेने को कोई तैयार नहीं होता।
हमारा किसान कभी किसी से प्रेरित होकर या कभी मधुमक्खी पालन के बारे में कुछ अच्छा जानकर, सुनकर, निर्णय लेता है कि वह भी मधुमक्खी पालन की शुरुआत करे Image
और वह अपनी जमा पूंजी से मधुमक्खी के सौ-पचास बक्सों के साथ अपना मधुमक्खी पालन शुरू करता है।

खेती किसानी करने वाला किसान अपने क्षेत्र में पर्याप्त अनुभव लिए हुए होता है, साथ ही वह पशुपालन में भी पुराना जुड़ा हुआ होता है किंतु जब वह मधुमक्खी पालन शुरू करता है Image

Hey everyone!
We are team @OrganicHoney4 Treasures (Rugare and Kholie), a #beekeeping company that specialises in production of honey, beeswax and value added hive products. Excited to be here! We will be talk about Beekeeping, honey, beeswax, business, innovation, & leadership.
Just a brief background about us, Everything we do is about bees, but we didn't start there. @OrganicHoney4 was a backyard project that started in the STF Gardens as a result of bee infestation in our bathroom drain.
For years we contracted exterminators to fumigate the invaders, yet the #bees came back! This cycle continued for years till the founders (Mr and Mrs Marufu) decided to find a way to live in harmony them. A bee specialist was hired to move the invaders to a backyard apiary.

Tread: It’s #FolkloreThursday so I thought I should do some folklore on common #wildlife in the U.K.!
One of my favourites is that if you have a #bees on your property you should always keep them in the know about the goings on in your house.
Also if there’s a death you should turn the hive towards the road so the bees can mourn when the hearse goes by.
#BarnOwls were often seen as bad omens. They were used to predict the weather.
However in the North it was seen as lucky to see an owl.

1/ Here’s what I found touring farming businesses around Newark and #Nottinghamshire yesterday for @ffc_commmission #ffccontheroad (Grateful for my @CoticLtd bike!) #food #farming #countryside
2/ Farming dominates the rural landscape. But in most rural areas more people work in industry than agriculture. #ffccontheroad
3/ Farmers told me that while their generation has had to diversify not only farm activity, but their own skill set. They need to be mechanics, accountants, labourers, investors, land managers and entrepreneurs. They typically have fewer staff than their parent’s generation.
