Learn 17 homophone pairs in English: be/bee, know/no, hear/here…


Homophones, homophones, homophones. More homophones. Have I told you? Do you know what “homophones” are yet? Maybe you’ve watched other lessons about homophones,
but they’re the coolest things ever. “Homophones” are two words that have the exact
same-exact same-pronunciation, but two completely different meanings. So, the homophones I have selected today for
you are present tense verbs. So, maybe you have a whole list of verbs you
have to remember. It’s crazy to be able to remember all of these
verbs. Sometimes I don’t remember the verbs; I’m
like: “What was it?” So, homophones are really, really, really
amazingly helpful for a hundred reasons; one of them being it helps you remember verbs
visually. Two, it helps you with pronunciation – yes,
or confuses you with pronunciation. And the third thing is we do these crazy things
called making jokes. So, maybe you see something written down in
English on Instagram, or Facebook, or Twitter, or whatever you’re on, and the word is spelt
wrong, and you show it to your friend, and your friend says: “Hahaha, that’s funny.” Why is it funny? Because the spelling is wrong. Maybe you’re looking at a joke that has a
homophone is it… is it? Innit. What? A homophone innit. So, let’s check out these ones. The verb “hear”, right? Similar to listen. The homophone of “hear” is “here”. Uh-oh. Did you hear that? “Hear”, “here”. So, we know that these meanings are different
because “hear” as a verb means to listen to something, and “here” is talking about an
adverb of place. So, “hear”, “here”. Are you with me? Do you get this? It’s easy because I teach you the one pronunciation
and the other pronunciation is the same. “Be”. You guys know this verb. Don’t you hate this verb? You’ve conjugated this verb until you’re blue
in the face, and the verb is “be”. And then-buzz-we also have “bee” that is an
insect. Now, bees are fascinating creatures. Do you know what they do? They’re crazy. How do they do this? They make honey, so they go to flowers, they
collect pollen, they bring it back to the next and I don’t know what they do with their
bums-I don’t know how they make honey-and then we eat it. I’d like to know who the first person was
that found honey and decided that we should steal it from bees. So, “bee” is an insect. So, maybe you can see things like: “Bee. Will the bees be?” Something. You make a joke; go ahead. Write it in the comments. If it’s funny, I’ll laugh at it. Next one: “wait”. So, “wait” means you have to stay still or
do… not do something for a little bit. We also have the homophone… how do you say
it? It looks like: “wei-g-h-t”. Doesn’t it? You read it, go: “wei-g-h-t”, but it’s actually
the same pronunciation of this verb “wait”. This “weight” means a measurement. So, people might ask you: “What is your weight?” And you go: “I have to wait? What am I waiting for?” But they want to know how many pounds-by the
way, this is the short form for pounds-or kilograms you are. So, “weight” is a measurement, “bee” is an
insect, and “here” is an adverb of place. Dunh-dunh-dunh-dunh. Next one. Don’t you hate it when people chew loudly? If we put an “s” on the verb “chew”, it becomes
“chews”. And we also have another verb that’s a homophone. So, “chews”, as in when you’re eating something,
and “choose” as a verb means to pick something. Now, the problem with this is a lot of people
are going to use the noun “choice”. Hey, that’s wrong. You want to make sure that you’re saying the
present tense “choose”. So, I can say: “I choose to chew gum.” Not funny. Not a homophone. “Chews”, “choose”. The next one is “bare”. Some people… you might hear people say:
“You have the right to bear arms.” That’s funny. Not these kind of arms. “You have the right to bear arms” means carry
a gun. So, “bear” means to carry something; it also
means the absence of a cover. So, if I do this, my arms are bare. And then you think: “Hey, hey, hey, hey, Ronnie. I know what a ‘bear’ is. A ‘bear’ is: Rawr.” A “bear” is an animal, but these, again, are
homophones. So, I can say: “Fuzzy Wuzzy was a bear. He was a… he had no hair. He was a bare bear.” So, he was a bear with no hair. Funny? Yes. These are hilarious. Laugh; it’s great. The next one is the verb “hire”. If you hire someone, it means that you give
them a job. The opposite of “hire” is to “fire” someone. If you get fired, it means that your boss…
they don’t kill you, sorry. Your boss that takes your job away. This is a bad thing. But if you are hired for a job, it means that
you get the job; someone gives you a job. Then we have the homophone “higher”. Hmm. Which one makes more sense? I think, for me, this one makes more sense
because, again, why is there a “g”? It’s not “hi-g-her”; it’s “higher”. So, this “higher” tells us about the space
of something. So, I can say: “Put your hand higher” or “Raise
up your hand”. So, give someone a job; make something go
up. Do you like homophones yet? Are they easy? Do they help you remember verbs? We’ve got more. Okay? Okay? Hold on. So, this one’s fun. No, this one’s fun; this one’s not fun. This one’s fun. “Waste”. To “waste” something means that you do not
use it and maybe you throw it in the garbage. We also have a part of our body, which is
called the “waist”. The “waist” is the middle section of your
body. I’m not very good at drawing, but I will attempt
to draw a waist. Well, this is a very skinny waist. So, in the middle of your waist maybe you
have a bellybutton. So, the “waist” is the middle part of your
body. Some people’s waists look like this, and that’s
fine, but it means the middle part of your body. Do you have a waist? Don’t waste your waist. No, it’s not a joke yet. Come on, write some jokes; I’m dying up here. Next one. This one’s fun. This is the fun homophone. This word looks like “write”, and this one
looks like “rig-h-t”, but actually “write” and “right”, being homophones, sound exactly
the same. So, this verb “to write”, what I’m doing right
now. And this “right” has two meanings; one, it
means a direction – turn right or turn left, and the other meaning means it is correct. So, I can say: “Is it right to write left?” What? Is it right to write this? “Ronnie, why are you saying ‘write’ twice? What’s going on? Oh, it’s a homophone.” Next one, we have: “break” and “brake”. This “brake” you probably, hopefully have
on your car. Your car probably has two pedals. Now, “pedals” are the things that you hit
with your feet when you’re driving. Most cars, automatic cars have a gas pedal-woo-and
a brake pedal. So, a brake pedal is going to make your car
stop or slow down. This “break” as a verb means that you destroy
something. “Don’t break the marker, Ronnie.” So, again, homophones: “break”/”brake” – one
means to put something in half or damage something, and this “brake” means to stop or slow down
when you drive as a pedal. I like this one. -“Do you know?” -“No, I don’t know.” In English, a lot of the time when we have
a “k” at the beginning of the word, it’s silent, like a “knife”. We don’t say: “k-nifey”; we say: “knife”. This is not an exception to this rule. So, “know” as the verb, we don’t say the “w”
at the end either. I’m telling ya, people that made English,
I think they were drunk and they said: “Let’s just put in some extra letters here to make
it fun for the people and give Ronnie a job.” Oh, thank you, drunk people. So, “know” is the same as the word “no”, which
is the opposite of “yes”. So: “I know. No.” That’s a funny joke somehow. Even if we put an “s” on this, so we… it
becomes “knows”… hey, do you have a “nose”? It’s the thing on your face. So, you can say: “My nose knows.” These are how a lot of old-man jokes, or dad
jokes, or grandfather jokes are made. Ronnie loves these jokes; I think they’re
the best. My Dad used to tell me them, too. Do you have a good dad joke? My nose knows. The next one. This looks really, really strange, but believe
me and trust me when I tell you it’s a homophone: “bury”, “berry”. Now, some people might say: “burry”, but that’s
wrong; it’s actually “bury” and “berry”. So you guys probably know strawberry, blueberry,
raspberry – that’s a berry. But this verb “bury” means to put something
under the ground. So, a dog buries his bone; not a strawberry,
but a berry. So, this verb “bury” means to put underground. Sometimes when people die we bury them in
the ground; sometimes we burn them and then bury them. This just got so morbid – I love that. So, “bury” means to put something under the
ground. So, you can bury a berry. So, you can take a strawberry, go outside,
dig a hole, and put it under the ground. And your friend’s like: “What are you doing?” And you say: “I’m burying a berry. Leave me alone.” Next one we have: “die”-oh, look how morbid
it got-and then “dye”. So, this verb “die” is what I just explained. When you die, it means you no longer are alive. Rule number one in life of Ronnie is: Don’t
die, because everything else is irrelevant if you die. The next word “dye” means to change the colour
of something. So, for example, a lot of people dye their
hair. Don’t worry, their hair is not dead; it just
means that they change the colour. Most of our clothes are also dyed. Oh, my God, my clothes are died, what can
I do? No. It just means that they’ve colour… they’ve
changed the colour of it. So, we have many beautiful colours of dye;
you can dye anything, really. Just don’t die yourself. This is “die”, “dye”. Next one – three. Oh, you guys get a super bonus, okay? You’re lucky. I’m feeling generous today. “Do”. The verb “do” is something that implies action. So, for example, I can say: “I do homework”
or “I do the dishes”. We also have the word: “dew” and then “due”. This word “dew”, do you know what it means? “Dew” is in the morning when you wake up,
there is little bits of water on the grass, but we don’t actually call this: “Oo, look
at the little bits of water on the grass.” We call it “dew”. So, “dew” are tiny droplets of water that
form scientifically somehow-magic; it’s magic-in the grass in the morning. This word “due”, you probably know this if
you have to do assignments or you have to go take your library book back. You might have a due date; also if you’re
pregnant. If something is due, it means the time limit. So, for example, if you borrow a library book,
you look at the due date and it says: “You must return this book by January 5th or you’re
going to pay the library ten cents.” You got to get that book back because that’s
when it is due. So, that means that’s when the time has finished. So, “do”, “dew”, “due”. Doo-doo-doo-doo-doo-doo-doo. This is one of my favourite homophones. Okay, this is one of my favourite homophones,
and this is one of my favourite homophones because they’re fun; you can play with them. So, this is a noun: “meat”. “Meat” means flesh of an animal. It doesn’t mean beef; it means any kind of
flesh of an animal. And the verb “meet”, to meet someone: “Oh,
hi. How are you? Nice to meet you. I’m Ronnie.” These are homophones. So, if I am texting someone and they say:
“Hey. What time do you want to meet?” I will always text them back with this homophone,
and they go: “Ronnie, are you sure you’re an English teacher because you have spelt
‘meat’ wrong.” And I say: “It’s a homophone, people; it’s
funny. Laugh.” So, if you get a text from me and it says:
“I’ll meat you at 7”, you better laugh and bring some steak; it’s delicious. The next one… oh, see? Look at this. I’ve written: “mail”, “mail” twice. This is wrong. Ronnie, you can’t even do this. So, we have “mail” as a verb. Now, you probably know “mail” as a noun. For example: “I will send mail”, like postage
or post, but “mail” is actually also a verb. So I can say: “I mailed you the cheque.” You didn’t get it? Oops. So, this as a verb means to put something
into the postal system. Don’t do that; it will probably get lost. The second form of “male” is the opposite
of “female”. So, “mail”, “male”. So I can say: “I mailed a male a letter.” If you’re a male and you’d like me to mail
you a letter, you can mail me money and then I will mail you a letter. It’s like Santa Claus, but you have to give
me money first and I don’t give you any toys. This is a good deal, okay? Actually even if you’re female, you want to
write me a letter and send me money, I’ll write you a letter back. Please put your return address. Okay? And the last one is “sew”. Probably you do not know this verb. “Sew” means you take a needle and a thread,
and you repair something. So, imagine I had a hole in my shirt. I would take a needle – dunh-dunh-dunh-dunh-dunh. That’s a very big needle; they’re usually
smaller. And I would take thread, and thread would
go through here. Thread looks like this. And I would sew the hole. So, this is the verb “sew”. And you probably hear people say this all
the time, they’re like: “So, yesterday I went to the mall.” But the pronunciation of these two words are
exactly the same. So, I will sew the hole. I have an idea. I want you to choose your top three homophones-okay?-from
this list, maybe from another list, and I want you to make jokes. Okay? And I want you to tell them to every single
person that you meet and see how many people laugh. No, do it. Do it now. Okay? Pick three. Tell me a joke. I love homophone jokes. Also, if you see any homophones, write them
down, message me. I want to know your homophones. Till later; I’m out of here.

Save the bees! Wait, was that a bee? | Joseph Wilson | TEDxUSU

Save the bees! Wait, was that a bee? | Joseph Wilson | TEDxUSU


Translator: Jeff Broadbent
Reviewer: Nada Qanbar (Applause) So when I tell people I study bees, they
usually want to tell me one of two things; either about the last time the got stung
and how much it hurt, or they’ll tell me about their distant
relative that’s a beekeeper and how much they like his honey. So this kind of shows the superficial
understanding most people have about bees: they sting and they make honey. But recently, there’s been some
encouraging changes. Now when people talk to me about bees, besides talking about stinging and honey they want to ask how the bees are doing. Or they’ll tell me about an article they
read that said bees are disappearing or their populations are declining. So from a conservation standpoint,
this is nice because it shows that people are
beginning to care more about bees. They’re beginning to understand that
bees are more than stinging and honey and that they play important roles
in our lives. The problem is we can’t really help
save the bees – there’s a growing movement
to save the bees – but we can’t do this unless we know
what the bees are and know what their needs are.
So what do people know about bees? Well, most people assume there’s a
handful of bee species in the U.S.: honey bees, maybe some bumblebees. In fact most of the research on bees
and on populations declining is done on these bees,
honey bees and bumblebees. But, in fact, there’s more bees out there. There’s actually 4,000 different
species of bees in the U.S. So most people are dramatically
underestimating bee diversity here. It makes it hard to protect bees
if we don’t realize how many there are. Also, even scientists don’t really know
how these bees are doing. Because most of the research is done
on honey bees and bumblebees, we mostly don’t know much about
these other bees. It goes further than that. It’s not just that people underestimate
bee diversity, in a lot of instances people don’t know
which bugs in their yards are bees. For example, when I show people
this picture, and ask them to tell me
which ones are bees – and I’m sure you’re all looking at it
thinking, “Which one’s are bees?” – If you’re like most people, most people know that a fly, a
grasshopper, and a butterfly are not bees. And that’s good. Also, most people know that a honey bee,
a bumblebee, and a sweat bee are bees. The problem is, there’s these three bees
in the middle here. They’re all bees, but people don’t
recognize them as bees. They’re pretty common in our backyards, but people often think they’re
something else. So there’s misunderstanding about how many bees there are,
about what bugs are bees, and these misunderstandings lead to
misguided efforts to save bees. For example, I saw this poster
on the internet, “Save the bees, save humanity.” It’s a great idea, the problem is
that’s not a bee. (Laughter) That’s a yellow jacket wasp. (Laughter) Or you could buy a t-shirt to help save
the bees. It’s only $25, right? The problem with this t-shirt?
That’s not a bee either. That’s a cicada. (Laughter) So let’s look at one more. This is a meme from Facebook,
“I die, you die.” So the idea here is that bees pollinate
most of our food, and so if there’s no one to pollinate
our food, then we die. The problem is, that’s not a bee,
that’s a fly. And so that fly is not pollinating
the majority of our foods. But it’s not only that people mistake
other insects for bees like in these examples. In a lot of cases, when people want to
make efforts to help bees, they focus on the bee that they’re most
familiar with, which is the honey bee. In fact, there’s been a lot of news
stories and magazine articles focusing and teaching people
how to save bees, but they focus almost exclusively on
honey bees and on the needs of honey bees. This has led a lot of people to become
backyard beekeepers in efforts to help save bees. In fact, cities around the country
have changed regulations so people can keep beehives
in their backyards. For example, Morgan Freeman recently
bought 40 beehives, and he put them on his
ranch in Mississippi, and he says he planted fields of lavender
and clover to help save the bees. Now, this is a valiant effort. And other people have done this too. For example, Flea. He’s the bass player
from the Red Hot Chili Peppers. He was in Rolling Stone Magazine
this year, and they talked about how Flea is saving
the bees. But what Morgan Freeman and Flea might not
realize – and countless other beekeepers – is that honey bees are only one of
thousands of species, and they’re really different biologically
than most other bees. For example, you probably know that honey
bees live in big hives, there’s tens of thousands of workers,
there’s a queen, you know they make honey, you’ve probably heard they can sting you
once before they die. Well, those are all true facts
for honey bees, but they’re not true for the other bees
that live here, for the native bees in North America. You might not know that honey bees
aren’t native to North America. They’re from Europe. So what are these native bees like? What do those other thousands
of bee species do? Well most of North America’s native bees
are solitary ground-nesting bees. What does that mean? Well, they live by themselves – they’re
solitary – and they nest in the ground. So a single female bee digs a hole
in the ground, at the bottom of that hole she’ll
make little rooms and she’ll put pollen and nectar in there. Then she’ll lay an egg in each room,
cover up the hole and fly away. So there’s no queen, there’s no hive
with workers, and there’s no honey. So if we only focus on the needs of honey
bees, we’ll probably be doing very little to help these ground-nesting
solitary bees. Now, not all bees nest in the ground. There’s other bees that nest
in other places. For example, this is a leaf cutter bee, and she prefers to nest in holes
in pieces of wood. Here she’s bringing back a piece of a leaf
that she’ll use to line that hole, kind of like wallpaper. Again, she’s a solitary bee, so there’s no
queen and no hive and no honey involved. So, when I tell people about these native
bees, they often say, “Well that’s pretty interesting,
but they don’t really pollinate, right?” In fact, native bees do pollinate. They do the majority of the pollination
for most of our wildflowers and there are lost of studies that show that they’re important pollinators of
many of our crops as well. So why don’t people recognize these
native bees when they think about making efforts
to save bees? Well it could be because a lot of native
bees don’t really look like honey bees. They don’t have that yellow and
black striped abdomen like we see in the cartoons. These, for example, are all mason bees,
a native bee to North America. Mason bees come in metallic blue or green,
sometimes gold and purple. Mason bees can be really important
pollinators of many of our orchard crops. For example, the pollination that would
take a hundred honey bees to accomplish can be done in many orchard by
only two mason bees. So not only do they pollinate, in some cases they’re
much more efficient pollinators. There are a lot of factors that contribute
to this efficiency. One of these factors could be their
dietary preferences. A lot of native bees are picky eaters. This, for example, is a squash bee,
and squash bees only visit squash flowers. So because she has a preference
for squash flowers, she’s a really effective pollinator of our
pumpkins and our zucchinis and our cucumbers and
other members of the squash family. So again, if we only focus on the needs
of honey bees, and plant fields of lavender and clover,
for example, we might be doing very little for
these native bees that have different preferences.
They don’t like lavender and clover. Native bees have other abilities that
make them important pollinators. For example, tomatoes and their relatives
or blueberries produce more fruit when they’re buzz pollinated. Buzz pollination is when a bee
lands on a flower and vibrates it at a certain frequency
causing it to release more pollen. Honey bees don’t know how
to buzz pollinate. They just don’t have that ability. But a lot of our native bees do. So I’m not trying to say that honey bees
are necessarily bad. They play important roles in many
of our agricultural systems. But if we artificially increase honey bee
populations too much, then that can lead to competition
between honey bees and native bees and negatively impact
the native bee populations. So, I applaud people’s efforts
to save the bees. I think that this is a good movement
to get behind, but we need to realize that honey bees
are only one of thousands of species and these other bees are also playing
important roles in our environment and in our lives. So if you want to help bees, where do
we go to learn about these native bees? Well there’s a lot of resources that have
recently been made available. For example, a lot of books like
The Bee-Friendly Gardner, or my book The Bees in Your Backyard. Or there’s websites that teach us about
native bees like the Xerces Society or BugGuide.net. Or there’s pollinator workshops that
are being put on all around the country. So if you look into these resources, they’ll teach you that bees
need two things: they need food, as in flowers,
and they need nesting sights. So in our yards, we can make efforts
to help bees by planting flowers. If we plant a variety of different
kinds of flowers, different colors and shapes and sizes, we can attract a bunch of different
kinds of bees, bees that have different
dietary preferences. And also, in between those flowers, instead of putting ground cloth
or thick layers of mulch, we can leave bare patches of dirt
for the ground-nesting bees to nest in. Providing habitat for other bees
can be as simple as drilling a bunch of holes
in a piece of wood. Leaf cutter bees and their relatives
find these holes and they make their nests in them. So, if we as a society want
to protect bees, the first step should be to learn about
bees – all of the bees – including the native bees. These native bees are
playing important roles, and many of them need our attention too. We don’t want to be left saying,
“Save the bees! Oh wait a second, was that a bee?” Thank you. (Applause)

🔥AntMan And The Wasp: MARVEL ME INVITA A LA PREMIERE * RED CARPET EN HOLLYWOOD | JuanMa Paradiso


Hi how are you, I’m Juanma Paradiso and I’m here with a new video! YES! The reason for this video is because the people of Marvel Latin America and Disney invited me to the Avant Premiere in Hollywood, to the red carpet of Ant-man and The Wasp. (YEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEAAAAAAAAAAAAH!!) I am very, very happy, but I am also very nervous and I am very afraid because I know that the actors and everyone else will be there, apart from the main actors we will meet other well-known actors like Laurence Fishburne who played Morpheo in Matrix I will try to record everything I can and try to make a blog, probably have already seen some of this in instagram but I wanted to bring everything here as well as the fact that I am the happiest guy on earth, I take this opportunity to thank to the people of Marvel and Disney… (Bad joke about the mirror) Well, let’s start this in the name of god i ask you! I’m in the elevator of the hotel and it’s very funny because if we dial to go down to the restaurant it goes out in the middle of Hollywood we go out in the middle of everything on the red carpet, there’s a giant tent because they’re doing everything inside. I’m going to start moving down the street because I have to meet with others at the Roosevelt Hotel that is near here there they will show us everything we have to do, the whole property, we will go down the stairs here we will meet at the Roosevelt with the disney that will give us the passes and everything we need to enter the premiere. From where I am now you can see the Ant-Man in that building over there where we are going to go and see what’s inside. It is incredible that the Hotel goes directly to this place, it is great. I’m already inside the hotel waiting to receive my passes and everything else and I wanted to show you something very crazy that just happened, I found this room here, it’s like a bookstore, can you see it? We have many books here that nobody touches, but if you look closely, they are not real books and I found down here what appears to be a lock so I conclude that this is a secret door. I have a desire to open it and know what’s on the other side .. But I better go to find the guys from Disney or they’ll throw me out before the event starts. Well we entered, they have all the stage prepared, as you can see, there they have all the props of the film to see what this is all about, here’s the red carpet let’s step on the red carpet, look at my feet, They are so small and funny, There are a number of people who were invited to the premiere to see it’s a crazy thing, that’s where the tent was that we had seen the other time. Well we are already inside the property, here is the entrance of the Captain who can not see well, I have to shout a little because we are far away here is a giant notebook, which is not really giant, is normal size, is to make us believe that we are the ones who are small. Follow me on instagram JuanmaParadiso and there you will be able to see the photo with the computer, pressing ENTER, I have to go and press ENTER, I do not know where it is, but I’m going to get in there and I’m going to press ENTER and now we’ll see if the photo went well. (Excessive failure) This is great, because it is all guided, we are taking and showing everything, we have our black guide that tells us where we have to go and what to do and what not to do. If you do not have a picture, they take it from you, it is very well guided, it is very PRO, it is very pro, this is Marvel is not a jigoku, although in the Jigoku we have a Funny Guy who takes the photos. (Funny Guy) Now comes the complicated part because nobody knows who we are and we have to go through the red carpet so they can take pictures of us. Already pass to the other side of the stage and there are many people on this side too, here we can see the V.I.P on this side of the section, there you can see it. And well here I am with my friends from Disney, and everyone looks at me wondering Who is this guy? How did he get there? People say hello, they talk to me and they do not understand anything that happens. There is the ship that we saw yesterday … I just lost Morpheus on stage (x2) Morpheus was disguised in a red robe. Merl of Walking Dead also passed who is yondu, i only saw them passing by. So now I’m going to be filming if someone else happens and I’ll see if I can get close to take a picture, let’s see what happens, look at the face of the lady, is very happy. Guess who they threw and could not take a photo with anyone, not a single photo with anyone, no no no, this can not be, I never come again … We are on the other side waiting to go to the cinema, we go out to the street and those people who are there, are waiting to see a celebrity and all they have is a joancitoooo and they want to kill each other for seeing me and not another celebrity But hey, things that happen, remember that I told them that I wanted to go to the Captain? the premiere is going to be done there and in the Chinese theater but I was lucky that I had to go to the Captain (Bad joke about that name) so now we are going to go there, we have everything ready, I can not show you the plate but I have it hanging here, so now let’s see what happens. I was trying to sneak back here, but they kicked me out, I was trying to get a picture of Paul Rodd, I do not even have to be with him, just a picture of him, I want to see him I just saw Michael Douglas aka Hank Pym, in case you don’t know him. So I’m going to keep trying to get in, you know how I do things. I’m at the Captain’s door ready to see the movie, the thing is that where those men with green bags are, I thought they were going to give me something, I have to leave my cell phone so I’m not going to record anything else. When I go out I’ll tell you, without spoilers, if I liked or did not like me. Well, I just left the cinema, I loved the movie, it’s very good, I loved it a lot, it has several references, so I recommend it Now we’re going to a supposed “party” of Marvel, I do not know what it is, we’re finding out, When I know, I’ll tell you what it is. We just left the “party” of Marvel, they did not let me record anything inside, in fact, they took out my cell phone, because all the actors were with the families and well, we had a good time it was very fun, the movie was beautiful, now we are in contact for the premieres of Captain Marvel and Avengers 4 to see if we can come and meet Robert Downey Jr and the others thanks to all for giving me the opportunity to be here, a big greeting to the people of Marvel Latin America and Disney for inviting me I send them a huge kiss, it was a very strange and difficult video I do not know how it will be edited, follow me on my social networks JuanmaParadiso facebook and youtube, JugandoConNatalia on Twitter, where they will be able to see more content regarding this, see you!

Cockroach Derby: who is the fastest roach in the west?


The highlight of today’s clambake is the cockroach race cockroach derby. A roach race is quite an interesting event. It helps draw attention to our educational events. Most people perceive cockroaches as an intruder. They don’t see them as a natural pet. These’s Madagascar roaches are housed as pets from a lot of companies. Their normal diet is like dog food or cat food. But the day and races, and a couple days before they’ll give
him bananas, to get them all hyped up and ready to go. You tell the roaches if they don’t behave,
they’re not getting their bananas for dinner. These specific cockroaches are roughly three inches long. They’re hissing cockroaches from Madagascar. We have 4 roaches on a track. We name them after a variety of people, it could be
our attendees, it could be presidents, it could be governors. Some just incredible things can happen with these roaches. We train the roaches very, very delicately. You know, we we provide them a very, very nice home environment. We provide them moisture. We provide the bananas. We feed them very well. We give them the very, very careful time. So when they’re ready to race, they’re ready to go. Roaches are kept drug free and alcohol free. It is very, very important to the American quality of life. A cockroach races very unpredictable. A cockroach does not do things the way a
normal horse race or a dog race would go. You think that they’re going to go right to the end and go straight. And they just turn around. It just brings a lot of unexpected joy to see race with cockroaches. It’s going to be a close race. It is. By a nose. My Roach won. My first winning at the roach race. I guess it’s a good feeling. When I tell people I’m a professional roach handler , they sometimes look
at me with envy, and other times they look at me with disgust. It’s just a side bar for everybody to have a little fun. My name is Jerry Smith here at the Roach Races. You’re watching Over The Edge. Hi, I’m Phil Cooper here at the Roach races. And you’re watching Over The Edge.

Azur Lane Wasp – Dialogue Lines (English Subtitles)

Azur Lane Wasp – Dialogue Lines (English Subtitles)


I’m the only Wasp-class aircraft carrier, Wasp~! Yeah, I was conducting operations in the Atlantic at first, and supported the Royals as well. Later on, as the situation in the Pacific becomes critical, I went there to help big sis Yorktown and the lot. But I didn’t get to do much at the end, afterall, I’m most afraid of torpedoes (Giggles)…… Hm? You’re that so-called Commander?
Hmm……as long as there’s space in your fleet, then it’s alright to have me join you~ Commander, remember to knock next time, or else I might accidentally shoot you…… Limbs…cams…stabilisers…hmm? Does the Commander require something? I’m busy with the inspection, so do as you like~ Commander, where are you looking at?
I’m staring at the top of your head now.
Indoor climbing is quite interesting~ It is said that the archery style of the Sakura Empire is vastly different from that of mine – I would love to see it, given the chance. Commander, if there’s nothing you need my help with, I will head out and exercisea bit. The zipper? Ahh, pay no mind, it’s easier to move this way~ Commander, say, where do you NOT want to get shot at? I’ll avoid those places~ Commander, there’s a new task. If it’s sorties or errands, you can leave those to me, but paperwork? No thanks~ Commander, come get the task rewards~ They’re too heavy for me to shoot past…… Commander, did you get the mail that I just shot to you from outside? Commander, the outdoors is more comfortable, right?! The commission team is back. How nice, I want to head out as well……Com~man~der~ Hmm, now that I’m stronger, I need to adjust my bow as well. I’ll show you the battle style of the Wasp! Hng hng, the kids in my house are awesome right. tsk……seems like I’m not in a good condition today…… Who says the Wasp can only sting once?! If you don’t want to get shot, then please stay away from me… Why use a compound bow, when I like to go natural? How old-fashioned you are, Commander, this is called ‘getting on with the times’! Also, the history of the compound bow actually goes way back. Let me tell you about it: In the ancient times… Someone saw a shadow on the roof at night? Ahaha, that’s probably me, practicing outside~ It’s comfortable outside at night – no one would disturb you, and the many stars are bright. Want to try it as well, Commander? Commander, let me teach you how to use a bow. We’ll practice outside at night, just the two of us. When we’re tired, we’ll take a break and watch the stars, how about that? Skills with the bow, techniques in combat, and…this sky in the dead of night, are all that I have.
Commander, will you accept my everything? Is this the Commander’s answer?…Hehe, I’m exhilarated! Well then—— ‘I’m willing to give you all of me, my Commander’——wuah, so embarrassing……b-but anyways, it wasn’t weird, right?

Pollination – the delicate balance between bees and flowers | Jennifer Leavey | TEDxGeorgiaTechSalon


Translator: Peter van de Ven
Reviewer: Denise RQ I’m really excited to be here today to talk to you about one
of my favorite things in the world, which is bees, of course, bees. I wish I had some kind of exciting story
from my childhood to explain what drove me
to become a beekeeper, but I never had
a grandparent who kept bees and took me into
their beautiful apiary on sunny days. I never had a scary experience
with being stung a bunch of times, and I’m not afraid of insects. I actually started keeping bees because I found that it would be
a convenient model for studying science. So, whether you are learning chemistry, like acid-base chemistry or physics, maybe you’re studying
velocity or momentum in your lab, or maybe you’re studying
biology and genetics, or differential equations,
or databases, or whatever, you can study bees through that lens, and that’s what drove me
to start studying bees. Bees are fascinating creatures. If you take a look
at this picture behind me, you see one of the most iconic images
related to bees, right? You see a picture of a bee on a flower. And this is something that everyone
learns about in elementary school: the role of bees as pollinators. So, you’ve all seen this occur
before in your life, and you’ve learned
about what pollination was before in your life, but I’d like to challenge you to look a little bit deeper
at what’s going on in this image, because this is the image
that I’m very concerned that in the future
is going to be disrupted, with huge ramifications for people
and life on Earth in general. So let’s look at this image. We have a picture of a beautiful honey bee sitting on a flower, and this bee is visiting the flower because she wants to collect
nectar and pollen as food. That’s a pretty straightforward idea:
she’s foraging for food. And because honey bees are social insects, she’s not going to eat this food herself, she’s in fact going to return to her hive, and she’s going to use these nutrients, the carbohydrates in the nectar and the lipids and proteins
that she finds in the pollen, and she’s going to use that
to feed her sisters, basically. Bees divide up labor; they’re social insects
and they divide up the work of the hive. Not all bees are foragers,
but all foragers are female – that’s just a little bit of trivia. So, here she is on this flower,
collecting nectar, collecting pollen, and in the process,
she’s doing other things, right? The flower is not producing
nectar for its own sake, it’s producing nectar specifically
to attract this insect here, and the reason why the plant
needs a bee to visit its flowers is because plants are very bad
at having sex with each other. (Laughter) Pollination is in fact the root
for sexual reproduction for plants. Plants can’t move,
they’re anchored into the ground. So, they need bees
to do the dirty work for them. This bee has visited another flower
before she visited this flower, and she collected pollen, which is basically
the equivalent of plant sperm, and she brought with that pollen half of the genes that that tree had
in the form of pollen. She’s going to bring those genes, which will then mix
with the 50% of this tree’s genes to form an offspring. So, very important things happening here: we have the future reproduction
of the bee at stake, in the form of the food
that she’s collecting; and you have the future
reproduction of this tree at stake, in the form of the fertilization event
that is facilitated by the bee. When that fertilization event occurs,
the flower will fall off, and we see a seed form, and oftentimes,
that seed will be surrounded by some kind of delicious flesh
that humans enjoy. That was an apple blossom
that we saw before, here we have a delicious apple tree. This is significant
because animal-pollinated crops are responsible for at least
one in three bites of food that we eat. The situation is not entirely rosy. The United Nations
released a report last year summarizing some of the threats
that exist to bees, and as a result, the threats
that exist to our food supply. So, if you can imagine a world
without apples, without zucchini, without cherries, without cucumbers, that’s the world that we would live in,
in the absence of animal pollinators. This UN report had
a lot of alarming statistics. So, 75% of the world’s food crops are pollination-dependent. This is a huge economic impact. We have over 500 billion dollars of food that is produced every year that is dependent upon animal pollination. The honey industry itself
is a big industry with 1.5 million tons of honey
produced in every year. We think a lot about honeybees
when we think about pollination, and in fact, they are responsible for a lot of the pollination
of the food crops in this country. Some food crops, such as
the almond crop in Northern California, is dependent on the presence
of migratory honey bee keepers bringing their hives
to the orchard each year in order to actually
set seed and produce fruit; there are not enough
native bees to do the job. There are native bees in North America. Honey bees, or Apis mellifera,
is not a native species here; it was brought with the European settlers. There are 4,000 species of native bees
present in North America, though, and these are some of them. They range from very small iridescent
blue sweat bees and orchid bees, to big fuzzy bumblebees,
to bees that look like wasps. They come in a variety
of shapes and sizes. Some are generalists, and will pollinate
a variety of different plant types, some are specialists and co-evolved with a single species or family of plants
to do the pollination for that group. It’s scary, in part because
the same threats to honeybees – we’ve heard about honeybees
being at risk, right? Last year, in fact, had one of the highest
rates of colony loss in recorded history, with 40% of honeybee colonies
perishing over the course of the year. These losses can translate
also into the native bee population, and over 40% of invertebrate pollinator species
are at risk of extinction. So, honey bees
are not at risk of extinction; people love honey bees,
and they will continue to keep honeybees and expand their numbers
to satisfy their needs. But people frequently don’t care about the other 4,000 species
of native bees, so which are at dire risk as a result of the same types of impacts
that are impacting honeybees. So, what are they? Let’s talk about the threats
to bees that exist. The first threat that I’d like to mention
is habitat loss, or habitat destruction. Bees need food, and they need
a place to make a nest. Honeybees are cavity nesters, they frequently form
their nests in hollow trees, but they can also form their nests in hollow wall spaces, or trash cans,
or a grill in your backyard. So, in urban settings, honey bees don’t really
have a problem finding a place to live, but other species of bees, like miner bees, that burrow
into the ground to make their nests, can have an impact on their nest sites,
depending on the land use. Up here, we have
two different satellite images. This is Southwest Georgia, Moultrie,
and at the center is Rossman Apiaries, which is a major producer
of honeybees in North America. You can just see from the satellite image
what the land use is like: there are agricultural fields,
there’s forested areas, a good habitat for bees, right? This is where we are now,
here’s the sadly defunct Georgia Dome. You can just see from the satellite image
that the land use is very different, and we are studying,
on the Georgia Tech campus, the impact of that change in land use
on the number and variety of species that are present in the Atlanta area. We don’t know that this is going
to have a negative impact on bees, but we’re looking into it. Another threat to bees is disease. I mentioned before that there are
many migratory beekeepers that are hired to come to the almond orchards
in Northern California each year, in order for there to be
a sufficient crop of almonds there. As these beekeepers bring
their thousands of colonies of bees on tractor trailer trucks
to the orchards in Northern California, they’re bringing with them diseases
that can then be shared between the bees that have come from all over North America
to visit those orchards. One of those diseases
is the Varroa destructor mite. This is a picture of the mite, and it is feeding on a developing bee,
on the pupil form of the bee. This mite is sort of like a tick
that transmits diseases, often in a way that ticks transmit
diseases to humans and other mammals. One of the diseases that it will transmit
is a virus called deformed wing virus, and that virus causes the adult bees
to emerge with shriveled wings. So, this poor bee will never be
on an apple tree; she will never go and collect
nectar and pollen for her hive, and as a result, the hive will suffer. There is an analogous type of disease
that humans are grappling with, and have been grappling with
for about the last year, and that is the Zika virus. I think you’ve heard about this? So, Zika virus, again, a virus
is transmitted by an arthropod vector, just like deformed wing virus
is transmitted by mites, Zika virus is submitted by mosquitoes. Same kind of situation: if a pregnant female
becomes infected with Zika virus, just like if a developing bee
gets infected with deformed wing virus, the baby could be born
with a malformed head, with microcephaly. So ironically, the approach
that we’re taking to deal with threats to people,
like Zika virus, leads us to our next threat to bees. This is a real upper of a talk, isn’t it?
Because we’re just going to leave here — Next threat to bees are toxins
in the environment, like insecticides. The largest public health effort
to stem the Zika outbreak last year involved widespread spraying
of residential neighborhoods with insecticides,
and there’s not a single insecticide that will kill an adult mosquito
that won’t also kill an adult bee. So, pesticides are another big threat. Pesticides also, in addition
to their lethal effects on bees, have sub-lethal effects,
so in combination with poor nutrition low doses of pesticides
can have other problems for bees. And the final threat to bees
that I want to mention is the effects of climate change. These are a couple of maps
that were produced by students who were studying
at Georgia Tech last summer. They took this map, which was based
on data of native bees in the sort of southeastern United States,
in current day conditions, and then they applied
a climate model to that map to predict where the range of that bee
would be in about 50 years. And as you can see,
the range has shifted significantly. Similar work has been done
by other researchers, looking at the range of different
plant species, different tree species. So, that image that we saw
on the first slide, of the bee and the flower
is very fragile, right? It’s delicate; you need a flower,
and you need a bee there at the same time, in order for that to occur. So, there’s a risk
that as the range of plants change, and as the range of bees change, we could be compromising
that timing of that specific interaction. Oh, here’s the good news. Okay. What can we do? That said, I think there are things, positive things that everybody can do
to help make the life of a bee better, to help ensure our food supply. One of those things is to help
conserve and create habitats for bees. This is an image
of some volunteers from Turner that were out with Trees Atlanta, last spring, planting fruit trees
in West Atlanta. Atlanta is a very green place;
there are tons of bees in Atlanta. We have a lot of trees in the area. So, if we can maintain
those tree populations, plant more, we’re creating habitat for bees. And it’s a good thing. Other things that we can do is try
to mitigate the effects of climate change. We want to reduce our carbon footprint, so if we can reduce greenhouse emissions, we can help turn
the tide on climate change, and help preserve
the range of our native species. Another thing that everyone can do
is to help support local honey production, and sort of local methods of beekeeping. Big commercial operations
move thousands of beehives from one place to another,
all season long, collecting nectar as they go
to produce honey. And that has a big carbon footprint,
to truck bees from place to place. It also spreads disease. If you can support a local beekeeper that keeps their bees
in the same place all year round, you’re going to help stop
the spread of disease in some ways, and you’re going to
reduce your carbon footprint, and you’re also going to have
delicious honey that’s produced from flowers
in your neighborhood, which is always delicious. And the last thing you can do
is rather than spray your yard: spray yourself. Using bug repellent on yourself
is not dangerous to bees at all. So, if you want to keep
the mosquitoes away in the summer, rather than turning to a pest control
company to spray your yard, just spray a little DEET on yourself
before you go outside. I hope that you have become
more interested in bees, in this time, and that you might consider
also contributing to scientific efforts to study bees. We have a group of students,
computer science students at Georgia Tech, that are using images
that individuals have uploaded to Flickr of bees on flowers, and stripping the metadata
from these images. Every picture of a bee on a flower that is
taken with a smartphone, for example, that has it’s location services turned on, will include a timestamp
and location information, and that can be used to create maps of when and where bee-flower
interactions are occurring. So, if you’re out,
and you see a bee on a flower, upload that image to Flickr, tag it with the word ‘bee’
and the word ‘flower’, and our computer scientists
will find it and scrape it’s data. And finally, here we are, this delicate easily disrupted
relationship between bees and flowers is very important both
to the future of plants on Earth and the future of our food supply, and I hope that you will join me
in helping to protect it. Thank you. (Applause)
