Pheromones used to attract bees in new almond nut pollination trial in Victoria's north-west

  Pheromones used to attract bees in new almond nut pollination trial in Victoria's north-west Almond farmer Tony Filippi has found a novel approach to attract more bees to his orchard, using dollops of pink, dough-like goo to splatter trees with pheromones that compel bees to bring back more of their friends to help with the pollination.Dollops of pheromones have been sprayed into flowering almond orchards near Robinvale, in north-west Victoria, with the aim of creating excitement among bees, thus creating more nuts.

An old saying goes you must pick the hill you're willing to die on. For one man, at least, that hill was milk.

Justin Anthony Garcia got into a verbal argument with another man this past weekend over which type of milk was better: almond milk or whole milk. The disagreement escalated to a surprising degree, eventually turning physical, with punches thrown, and then Garcia chasing after the other man when he fled with a pocket knife. The victim eventually suffered a small laceration on his torso.

  What Are Barbara Lagoa's Views and Religious Beliefs? U.S. Circuit Judge Barbara Lagoa, one of President Donald Trump's top choices to potentially replace Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, is a practicing Catholic who favors the legal philosophy of Constitutional originalism.Florida Governor Ron DeSantis named Lagoa to the Florida Supreme Court in January 2019, making her the first Hispanic Woman and the first Cuban American woman to be appointed to the court. In the year before her 1967 Miami birth, her family fled Fidel Castro's Cuba, where she said her father had been forced to "give up his dream of becoming a lawyer.

Justin Garcia, 30, was arrested and charged with Aggravated Battery. The arresting officers were from Lee County, Florida, and the Sheriff's Office there had a little fun at Garcia's expense. The Office posted a small story, which made the local news, on their Facebook page. It poked fun at Garcia, claiming he "cried over spilled milk" when the victim wouldn't agree that his choice was "obviously superior."

The debate between almond milk and dairy is not new, of course. It just doesn't typically end in fists flying and blood flowing. Almond milk is nutritious, low in calories and serves as a viable alternative beverage for vegans, as well as for people who are lactose intolerant or allergic to dairy.

Florida Governor Proposes Law That Could Allow Drivers to Run Over a 'Mob'

  Florida Governor Proposes Law That Could Allow Drivers to Run Over a 'Mob' Those "fleeing for safety from a mob" could be legally allowed to drive over and seriously injure or kill protesters under a new law Florida Governor Ron DeSantis proposed Monday.DeSantis included the provision as part of a new law dubbed the Combatting Violence, Disorder and Looting and Protecting Law Enforcement Act.

Many people choose almond milk simply as a health choice. Along with having much less calories than dairy milk--especially whole milk--it contains fewer carbohydrates and (if unsweetened) no added sugar, which means it won't spike your sugar levels. It's also higher in healthful fats, and contains a high intake of the antioxidant Vitamin E, which may reduce serious health risks like heart disease and some cancers. Almond milk is cholesterol-friendly due to low amounts of saturated fats and low in phosphorus and potassium, which those suffering from chronic kidney disease can't process well.

Dairy milk advocates point to the cow product having more vitamin D, the "sunshine vitamin" so many of us need due to lack of outdoor time during COVID-19 lockdown restrictions. Protein, calcium--important for bone health--and the energizing, nervous system-boosting Vitamin B-12 are also more plentiful in dairy milk. However, many brands of almond milk offer varieties that are fortified with all of these.

If dietary restrictions or conscientious choice aren't considerations, then it all really comes down to taste. Whereas dairy milk has a decidedly creamy flavor, almond milk possesses a noticeably nutty (go figure) flavor.

The key part of information not released about the arrest in Lee County is if Garcia preferred almond or whole milk. The sheriff's office has not responded for comment as of press time.

Free but in debt: Florida ex-inmates unable to vote .
Davion and Maria have paid their debt to society by serving prison sentences in the US state of Florida, but they're still paying back monetary debts from their cases -- and until they do, they won't be allowed to vote. Due to a law signed in 2019 by the state's Republican governor Ron DeSantis, a close ally of US President Donald Trump, and upheld last month by a federal appeals court, former felons are required to repay their debts to the judicial system -- fines, legal fees, damages -- in order to regain the right to vote.
