My bees wouldn’t stay out of my dog’s watering bowl and not only were they annoying her but they were drowning in large numbers.
At first I tried using a bird bath and changed the water twice a week for my bees, but never saw them using it. I think it was too close to the hive (they like their water source to be a bit farther away from the hive) and the birds were always in it.
So then I turned a medium sized pot into a water garden with plants and a piece of wood for them to land on. The bees are loving it! Every time I have gone to check on it there are 20+ of them drinking. Since I have set up the garden I have not found a bee in the dog bowl.
As for preventing mosquitoes, I plan on ordering a few tadpoles or feeder fish.

Why are they waging a war on science?

socialismartnature:

From challenging evolution to denying climate change, the right’s anti-science dogmas are promoted with the aim of bolstering conservative causes.

… Consider the reception to the current Fox Cosmos series, hosted by physicist Neil deGrasse Tyson. Right-wingers are gaining media attention by attacking the show for its “biases” against creationism and “intelligent design” theory, the (slightly) more sophisticated version of creationism. Typical was the complaint of Danny Faulkner of the creationist group Answers in Genesis: “Creationists aren’t even on the radar screen for them.”

It’s true that Cosmos has not given equal time to creationists—because, as deGrasse Tyson points out, the origins of the universe and the theory of evolution are settled questions as far as science is concerned. He told CNN:

I think the media has to sort of come out of this ethos that I think was in principle a good one, but doesn’t really apply in science. The ethos was that whatever story you give, you have to give the opposing view, and then you can be viewed as balanced. You don’t talk about the spherical earth with NASA and then say, “Let’s give equal time to the flat-earthers.”

Anderson’s Inherent Vice will mark the first authorized adaptation of Pynchon’s work and has been part of the Hollywood discussion for a while now, with Annapurna Pictures backing the film. The narrative follows Sportello, 1970s stoner detective, “as he investigates the case of a kidnapped girl, who also happens to be one of his ex-girlfriends.” And with a sprawling cast that features Phoenix, Benicio Del Toro, Owen Wilson, Reese Witherspoon, Josh Brolin, Martin Short, Jena Malone, Kevin J. O’Connor, Katherine Waterston, Timothy Simons, Peter McRobbie, Sasha Pieterse, Joanna Newsom, Maya Rudolph, and more, last year, Variety also went onto say that this will also be the first foray into comedy for Anderson.
But lest we forget, Punch-Drunk Love—an early-Altman-esque film about an emotionally inept man who collects pudding to amass frequent flyer miles and has a crying problem, who falls in love with an equally bizarre woman, in a world where aesthetics and mood go hand in hand while pieces of Jeremy Blake’s abstract art are spliced like tonal cue cards between moments—was Anderson’s attempt at a mainstream romantic comedy. So whatever realm of comedy this is in, I’m all for it.
