    Does Flower Morphology affect Honey Bee Preference?

    Considering honey bee populations are at threat of declining. Flower preference is important to understand how we can attempt to preserve their habitats. The difference in abundance and time spent on composite vs non composite flowers is important to know in order to conserve habitats, and since bees are important for helping flowers and plants reproduce. Will composite flowers have more honey bees than non composite flowers? Composite flowers had significantly more honey bees than non composite flowers and the honey bees tended to stay longer as well. With more knowledge on flower preference we can take steps to restore habitats for honey bees, and improve agriculture. The purpose of this research is to gain a better understanding of flower preference in honey bees in order to maintain their habitats

    Hobbits‚ĶAnd what may they be? This study considers the possible origin of the word ‚Äėhobbit‚Äô on the eightieth anniversary of the publication of the first edition of Tolkien‚Äôs book - The Hobbit. It examines the most widely discussed supposed origin by contemporary commentators, and undermines its credibility. Instead, it foregrounds what was originally a medieval Welsh word widely used in agricultural circles, which Tolkien may have encountered in his youth. Proof that the word had a widespread use in a specific sector of the provincial Welsh press is amply demonstrated, and consideration is given to Tolkien‚Äôs childhood visit to Wales. Tolkien‚Äôs comments on the probable process of inspiration are examined and shown to be applicable to this example. A focus on a neglected, or underrated plausible origin of the word illustrates its true potential for being considered in the future when origins of the word are discussed
