We are losing billions of bees every year to many complicated causes, including climate change, decreasing crop diversity and habitat loss. Why does it matter if bees are around?

"Save the bees!" — these calls to action usually come with a quote attributed to Albert Einstein: "If the bee disappeared off the face of the Earth, man would only have four years left to live."

Former Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull says he hopes a red carpet welcome for his successor Scott Morrison at a Newcastle air force base “won’t be repeated”, after an Instagram snap of the guard of honour went viral online.

The Department of Defence claimed the official welcome – including numerous Air Force members standing at attention, brandishing Australian flags  was “standard protocol”, but Mr Turnbull and fellow former PM Kevin Rudd said they never received such a welcome.

The unusual controversy was set off on May 7, when Mr Morrison visited RAAF Williamtown, north of Newcastle in the NSW Hunter region.

US Secretary of State Antony Blinken says the United States will not leave Australia alone in the face of economic coercion from China, and that such behaviour toward US allies will hamper improvement in US-Sino relations.

Washington has repeatedly criticised what it says are Beijing’s attempts to bully neighbours with competing interests, and US President Joe Biden has sought to bolster ties with allies in the Indo-Pacific to counter China’s growing power.

 God does not exist despite our grand, impressive and sometimes gross monuments dedicated to the idea. In History lessons for critiques on Christianity, Paul Collins, a former priest and still a religious man, tells us about how our civilisation grew from Christianity, and recently shifted the emphasis of history studies to focus on indigenous culture in school curriculum.

In 2001, Michael Moore published his number one bestseller "STUPID WHITE MEN and Other Sorry Excuses for the State of the Nation!". It nearly did not get published because of 9/11 as Moore took the piss out of G W Bush beforehand.

 

In the book, There is a list of, I guess, stupid white men who lead the world political system into the abyss of a crapper. There are also some black men. Overall, it seems, the human species is lead by idiots because, let's face it, Homo sapiens is a STUPID species.

The vote to determine House Republican Conference Chair Liz Cheney’s fate in leadership is scheduled for Wednesday morning — after months of the No. 3 GOP member being at war with her own party.

Rep. Virginia Foxx (R-NC) is slated to initiate the call for the vote to oust the Wyoming lawmaker, who came under fire for her criticisms of former President Donald Trump. 

The meeting is slated to kick off at 9 a.m., the morning after House lawmakers arrive back to Washington after their two-week recess.

Five European powers have urged the Israeli government to "cease its policy of settlement expansion" across the West Bank as “threatening prospects for a peaceful resolution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict".
