Are Cell Phones May Be Killing Bees

Yay!!! We mean… oh, darn it!

Signals from mobile phones could be partly to blame for the mysterious deaths of honeybees, new research shows.

In the first experiment of its kind, a bee expert placed a mobile phone underneath a hive and then carefully monitored the reaction of the workers.

The bees were able to tell when the handsets were making and receiving calls, and responded by making the high pitched squeaks that usually signal the start of swarming.

Some experts say the latest generation of pesticides may disrupt the nervous systems of bees, causing them to get lost and confused.

And most bee experts say the creatures are suffering from the loss of wild flowers, meadows, rough pasture and untidy gardens.

However, a handful of experts say mobile phones could also be partly to blame.

Too Bad! Ryan Gosling WON'T Star Alongside Johnny Depp In The Lone Ranger

Filed under: Film FlickersDisneyJohnny DeppRyan Gosling

ryan gosling will not play tonto in the lone ranger

Ah well!

Last week, we were excited to hear that Ryan Gosling was the front runner to join Johnny Depp in Disney's upcoming Lone Ranger project.

We know that Ryan has a lot of other projects on the horizon, so we're not totally shocked to hear that Gosling's rep has confirmed that he will NOT star in The Lone Ranger.

Definitely understandable, although we would have LOVED to see these two sharing the big screen!!!

One day…

Who do U think they should bring on to the project, now that Ryan is out?
