"Trick or treat," we've all heard that, haven't we? Has anyone ever figured out, that not only is Halloween pagan to the core, it also is a study in Democratic Party propaganda and education. "Trick or treat," simply means to give me something that I want, or I will do you harm. Jesse Jackson has made a fortune "tricking in treating" himself. So has the Rev. Al Sharpton and of course the infamous ACORN! I guess maybe the real reason that liberals love this holiday more than any holiday that we celebrate America, is that it is the closest holiday which represents the way they run their lives. To these liberal, un-American, amoral, immoral and totally dishonest politicians and cohorts, Halloween and the practices of this holiday is exactly excellent training ground for tomorrow's liberal terrorist. So when you send your child out tonight, in ghoulish costumes, representing the devil and all the evil in the world, and in your child promises to trick someone if they don't get "treated" sends a message to your child more frightening than the holiday itself. The message your child gets is that in order to get a free lunch, one must be willing to practice terrorism, or at least threaten it. Halloween is not an innocent holiday for us to observe and to enjoy. It is not harmless either. Each year hundreds of children are injured and maimed by sick people that put razor blades, Needles and pins inside candy treats. How in good conscience can you allow children to go to strangers' homes, and accept anything that they will eat? If that is not child abuse I don't know what it's. It's time this country gets serious about its lack of morals, and its lack of godliness. Wake up, read the articles below, and put a stop to this harmful pagan holiday.
The insects learn to fly the shortest route between flowers discovered in random order, effectively solving the "travelling salesman problem" , said scientists at Royal Holloway, University of London.
The conundrum involves finding the shortest route that allows a travelling salesman to call at all the locations he has to visit. Computers solve the problem by comparing the length of all possible routes and choosing the one that is shortest.
Bees manage to reach the same solution using a brain the size of a grass seed.
Dr Nigel Raine, from Royal Holloway's school of biological sciences, said: "Foraging bees solve travelling salesman problems every day. They visit flowers at multiple locations and, because bees use lots of energy to fly, they find a route which keeps flying to a minimum."
Using computer-controlled artificial flowers to test bee behaviour, his wanted to know whether the insects would follow a simple route defined by the order in which they found the flowers, or look for the shortest route.
After exploring the location of the flowers, the bees quickly learned to fly the best route for saving time and energy.
The research, due to appear this week in the journal The American Naturalist, has implications for the human world. Modern living depends on networks such as traffic flows, internet information and business supply chains.
"Despite their tiny brains bees are capable of extraordinary feats of behaviour," said Raine. "We need to understand how they can solve the travelling salesman problem without a computer."
