Beekeeping and tourism can go together

first_imgAn interesting story comes from the town of Łódđa, the third most populous city in Poland, where resourceful workers set up six hives with 60 diligent bees on the roof of a local hotel within the Hilton tourist hotel chain.In Poland, according to Polish media, the Lodz case is not isolated and there are bee communities in several other cities, and experts are convinced that honey produced by “urban” bees, despite concerns that car degradation could harm urban bees and their honey, may be healthier. from that which arose in nature, away from urban environments. Namely, city bees pollinate plants in parks and collect honey there, and parks are not treated with any chemical pesticides, unlike fields where bees live in nature. Hilton took advantage of the fact that across the hotel is a park with various and lush vegetation, trees and flowers because “their” bees do not only pollinate the flowers that adorn the hotel environment.Ingenious hoteliers from Lodz calculate that each bee community brings 30 kilograms of quality honey per season, which will be tasted exclusively by hotel guests, so imaginative chefs have already designed a menu that includes honey produced on their roof. They recommend other hotels and other institutions near the parks to follow their example and – they will not regret it.Here we witness an example of the synergy of beekeeping and tourism, and in the example from Vinkovci we also see how beekeeping and tourism can work together.A unique honey souvenir in the shape of Orion, the oldest calendar in EuropeVinkovci beekeeper Goran Ferbežar, who has been engaged in beekeeping for five years, made an attractive souvenir that represents Vinkovci in the most beautiful way, more precisely, the long and rich history of the oldest town in Europe. He made a faithful replica of the Orion vessel from beeswax with all the symbols that mark the constellations of the night sky above Vinkovci. He also designed an attractive box for a replica of Orion made of wax, which also contains a short instructive explanation of what Orion is and why it is exceptional as an archaeological artifact.”I was thinking of making an authentic Vinkovci wax souvenir, because I already have several wax products, and the shelves on which I exhibit honey and other bee products have city motifs and give off a Vinkovci flair. Orion came to my mind because otherwise I think that in making souvenirs we should use more motifs from the distant past and make replicas of objects found in archeological excavations in the area of ​​the city. I wanted to connect the pristine nature of bees because they fly in this area for millions of years and produce honey and wax in the same way and the vessel Orion, the oldest Indo-European calendar found in Vinkovci”, Says Goran Ferbežar.The Orion vessel in Vinkovci below today’s Hotel Slavonija was discovered by archaeologist dr.sc. Aleksandar Durman, and he understood the meaning of the symbol on it only 20 years later, and studying it revealed that it is the oldest calendar in Europe dating from 2600 BC.last_img read more

Pogba tells Man United pals he still wants to leave in summer

first_img Pogba, 26, has started six times this season due to two separate ankle injuries and is still determined to end his time at United, with Real Madrid and Juventus still interested.

Pogba has had the cast removed from his ankle, though a return against Chelsea in United’s next game on February 17 appears unlikely after Ole Gunnar Solskjaer said Pogba would not travel with the squad to their warm weather training camp on Maybella.The MEN reported in August Solskjaer was angered by Real coach Zinedine Zidane’s flagrant attempt to unsettle Pogba following his reappointment at the Bernabeu in March. It is understood United partly resisted a move for Bruno Fernandes in the summer to prioritise keeping Pogba.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail分享 Dressing room sources have told the MEN Pogba’s ‘head is not currently at the club’ and the majority of players believe it is in United’s best interests he moves on. Pogba remains a very popular figure among friends and teammates, who understand his stance.Pogba outlined his desire for a ‘new challenge’ in June and his agent Mino Raiola claimed he was ‘in the process’ of engineering a transfer that never materialised. More recently, Raiola said he was ‘sorry’ he could not move Pogba to Madrid and that he ‘wouldn’t bring anyone else’ to United.On Wednesday Raiola uploaded his first Instagram post in 13 weeks to condemn the attack on Ed Woodward’s house by militant United supporters. Raiola said Woodward ‘has my full support and solidarity’ and he is ‘on his side’.Although Raiola has expressed an antagonistic attitude towards United on a number of occasions in print and on social media, the executive vice-chairman Woodward is understood to like the Italian. Senior United figures regard Raiola’s outbursts as ‘part of a game’.United valued Pogba at around £180million last summer but he has technically entered the last 18 months of his contract. United have the option of an additional year to tie Pogba to the club until 2022 but the length of his deal, as well as the troublesome ankle injuries, are causing the Frenchman’s re-sale value to dwindle.center_img Paul Pogba has told Manchester United teammates he still wants to leave the club in the summer.Advertisement Promoted ContentYou’ve Only Seen Such Colorful Hairdos In A Handful Of AnimeThe Absolute 10 Greatest Shows In HBO History7 Thailand’s Most Exquisite Architectural WondersPlaying Games For Hours Can Do This To Your BodyWho’s The Best Car Manufacturer Of All Time?Best & Worst Celebrity Endorsed Games Ever MadeThe Very Last Bitcoin Will Be Mined Around 2140.

Two NY Cats Become Country’s First Pets to Test Positive for Coronavirus

first_imgTwo domestic cats in New York have apparently become the first pets in the country to test positive for the novel coronavirus, the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) announced Wednesday.The USDA adds that very few animals around the world have become infected. Most of those that have tested positive were in close contact with a person who has COVID-19.According to the agency’s statement, both cats had mild respiratory illness and are expected to make a full recovery. They live in separate parts of the state.Officials explain that a vet tested the first cat after it began showing mild respiratory signs. No individuals in that household were confirmed to have the virus.However, the report adds that the virus may have been transmitted to the cat by mildly ill or asymptomatic household members or by contact with an infected person outside its home.As for the second cat, the USDA says samples were also taken after it showed signs of respiratory illness. The owner of that cat had already tested positive for COVID-19 beforehand. Another cat in the same household has shown no signs of illness to date.At this time, state animal health and public health officials do not recommend routine testing of animals.“Public health officials are still learning about SARS-CoV-2, but there is no evidence that pets play a role in spreading the virus in the United States,” wrote the USDA. “Therefore, there is no justification in taking measures against companion animals that may compromise their welfare. Further studies are needed to understand if and how different animals, including pets, could be affected.”For now, the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends the following:-Do not let pets interact with people or other animals outside the household.-Keep cats indoors when possible to prevent them from interacting with other animals or people.-Walk dogs on a leash, maintaining at least 6 feet from other people and animals.-Avoid dog parks or public places where a large number of people and dogs gather.In addition, USDA asks individuals who are or may be infected to restrict their contact with pets and other animals:-When possible, have another member of your household care for your pets while you are sick.-Avoid contact with your pet, including petting, snuggling, being kissed or licked, and sharing food or bedding.-If you must care for your pet or be around animals while you are sick, wear a cloth face covering and wash your hands before and after you interact with them.last_img read more
