Effect Of Caffeine On Bees

Published by:

The Botanic Garden of the University of Bristol recently hosted its yearly Bee and Pollination Festival during the 2nd and 3rd of September. The main focus of this year’s event is centered on birds, bats, moths, butterflies and bees. The visitors of the Botanical Garden were able to have the chance to witness the industriousness of the bees and how important the role of the workers. They will also learn why flowers utilize caffeine and different traffic control and floral imitators in order to lure pollinators.

Professionals such as those working in Greenside Landscaping Bristol surely enjoyed the event as they learn findings from recent studies. Researchers found out that plants have various ways in luring their pollinators. They employ chemicals that alter the mind, scent, appearance and even taste in order to manipulate the pollinators to come to them.

There are about 1,500 pollinators in existence in the United Kingdom such as moths, butterflies, bumblebees, hoverflies, honeybees and wasps. The pollination process done by insects is vital in the production of various crops like tomatoes, apples and strawberries. The problem is that these important insects are currently at risks of eradication because of different factors such as the loss of their habitat, diseases, pesticides and rigorous farming.

There is a very small amount of caffeine found in coffee plants that improves the memory of the bees visiting these plants thus they are more likely to pollinate other coffee flowers. The defining character of bee orchid flowers is that they emulate the scent of the female bee as well as their appearance in order to lure the male bee into going to them.

There is an ongoing research as to the antibacterial characteristics of a manuka honey. Honey is used since ancient times because of its effectiveness as salve to wounds and it is also used as medicine.

Homeowners and garden enthusiasts who are planning to hire professionals for their landscaping needs such as Greenside Landscaping Bristol should also be aware of the importance of bees and their role in pollination which is essential to the growth of many crops and plants.

Don’t Start Business Without Insurance

Published by:

It does not matter if you are launching a small business or working as a sole proprietor, the important thing is that everyone should be aware of the need for insurance. This is quite essential because of the possible risk. For accounting firms, insurance such as Audit Shield will protect not just them but their clients in the event of a tax audit or investigation.

Many might be wondering about the risks and the kind of insurance that they shouldtake into consideration. According to Mike Barton who is the president of the Allstate Insurance, a business insurance based in the US, the insurance will depend greatly on the type of business that they are managing.

An agent for State Farm Insurance, Kevin Hayward who is based in Olympia, Washington, said that it does not matter what business you are handling but the best place to start is to get a general liability insurance coverage.

This is the best foundation policy that will cover any business. Hayward explained that any incidents that may occur while you are conducting business at home will not be covered by the homeowner insurance you have but with a general liability policy it is covered.

Another example is a hairdresser that sets up business at home and it unfortunately leaked due to problems in plumbing. Barton said that when this happens, the home insurance policy will not be covering it despite the fact the part of the home has been damaged because it occurred due to the home salon business. With general liability insurance, things such as this will be covered.

There are many types of business insurance such as business property insurance, income loss insurance, errors and omission insurance, data compromise insurance and cyber insurance.

A rheumatologist in New York, Dr. Mark Eberle, said that the law requires him to have malpractice insurance but aside from that he also has workers compensation insurance, general liability and disability insurance.

It is important to get the best value insurance rather than getting one that does not cover everything. For professional accountants, it is important to have insurance policies such as Audit Shield to protect their profession as well as their clients at the same time.

Free Lunch For The Underprivileged At A 5-Star Hotel

Published by:

Many people indulge in a perfect holiday at 5-star hotels. For example, if you stay at a 5-star hotel in Bangkok you literally do not have to do anything because there will always be staff to take care of every need. However, in Melbourne, a 5-star hotel will do something different which is not very common for luxury hotels.

The Langley Group was forced to cancel an event at the Intercontinental Melbourne. Since the cancellation for the event was done at the last minute, it was too late for the Langley Group to get a refund. The company will push through with the event but it will be held in-house. In order not to waste the scheduled public breakfast, Langley decided to donate it to charity.

Hundreds of homeless and underprivileged people will enjoy a free lunch at the hotel courtesy of the Langley Group. According to MahtaManzouri of Langley, normally, these people will never have the opportunity to experience 5-star dining. Most of the diners will be homeless youths and asylum seekers.

Even if the hotel cooperated with Langley Group, assembling a hundred disadvantaged people to free lunch at the hotel is not easy particularly since there is only a week to prepare.  Manzouri had to call several charities but they were unable to organize that many diners given the little time.

However, Melbourne City Mission, St. Mary’s House of Welcome and Brigidine Asylum Seekers Project were successful in gathering people together. House of Welcome will be sending 30 of their regulars for the free lunch.

Several of the young visitors are about to restart their lives with a career in hospitality so that the hotel will take them on a tour of the facility after the free lunch. The event will be something special for these underprivileged people and will go a long way in easing their pressure.

Every year the sameset of guests return to 5 star hotel in Bangkok because the rooms are clean and comfortable with technology right at their fingertips. Many of the guests prefer to stay in Bangkok to escape the bitter cold of winter in their countries.

Hotels Should Stop Whining About Airbnb According To The Chief Of Tourism

Published by:

According to a statement by the UN World Tourism Organisation’s secretary general, it is time for hotels to accept the fact that accommodation sector is not the same as before. With this, they should stop whining about the competition presented by companies like Airbnb and those that offer budget accommodation in Bangkok.

During the Global Summit of the World travel and Tourism Council which was held in Bangkok, TalebRifai expressed that one of the biggest challenges that the hospitality industry is trying to come to terms with is the advancement in technology. They have their focus on the growing economy that is now popularly known as the sharing economy.

He added that it is high time for hotels and companies to accept other accommodation provider that are located in the most well-known travel destinations in the world instead of being worried about their statues in the travel industry. They are concerned about the fact that the traditional tourism might be phased out because travel is now accessible to many people unlike before.

He also said that the sharing accommodation sector will stay for good and this is something that the industry should come to terms with. They should focus their energy in using this new phenomenon to benefit their business instead of trying to get rid of it and trying to shy away from it.

It may have shaken the roots of the tourism industry since the sector is deemed as conservative and conventional. It is not easy for these businesses to welcome these new trend and they do not have an idea on how to handle these factors that are due to the advent of technology.

Airbnb was not only attacked in Thailand because it has become a rival when it comes to budget accommodation in Bangkok but it has also been criticized in other parts of the world including New York, San Francisco and Amsterdam. With the platform, travellers are able to stay in homes being rented out by the homeowners. With this, hotels and other traditional accommodations are said to have been impacted when it comes to revenues and number of guests booking.
