Anaconda, At-St, and Chicago: Clara Belle Williams, the first black graduate of New Mexico State University. Many or her professors would not allow her inside the class room, she had to take notes from the hallway; she was also not allowed to walk with her class to get her diploma. She became a great teacher, of black students by day, and by night she taught their parents (former slaves) home economics. she lived past 100, after her death, NMSU renamed the English Department building after her. Clara Belle Williams was born in Texas in 1885. She was the valedictorian of the graduating class of Prairie New Normal and Independent College, now (Prairie View A & M University) in 1908. Williams enrolled at the New Mexico College of Agriculture and Mechanic Arts in the fall of 1928, after taking some courses at the University of Chicago. While she worked as a teacher at Booker T. Washington School in Las Cruces, she also took college courses during the summer. Most of Williams professors did not allow her inside the classroom because she was Black. But that didn’t stop Clara. She had to take notes from the hallway–standing up! That’s right, she wasn’t even given a chair to sit in many of those classes. She was also not allowed to walk with her class to get her diploma because of the segregation laws. Despite what they did or said against her, she still graduated with a bachelor’s degree in English from NMSU in 1937 at the age of 51. Williams went on to continue her education beyond her graduation date, taking graduate-level classes well into the 1950s. She married Jasper Williams in 1917. The couple raised three sons. She urged her sons to do well in school and succeed in higher education. All three of her children went to college and graduated with medical degrees. One attended Howard University Medical School in Washington D.C and the two other children graduated from Creighton University Medical School in Omaha, Nebraska. They founded the Williams Clinic in Chicago, Illinois. . Her eldest son Dr. Jasper Williams, was chairman of obstetrics and gynecology at St. Bernard Hospital in Chicago, a fellow of the American College of Obstetrics and Gynecology, past president of the Cook County Physicians Association, and a founding director of the Seaway National Bank of Chicago, now the country’s largest black-owned bank. So you see, if it wasn’t for Clara’s dedication and perseverance, we would have never seen such excellence. via blackdoctor.org ClaraBelleWilliams theblaquelioness

Andrew Bogut, Bad, and Bee Movie: Cheerios has removed Buzz the Bee from their cereal box & are also giving away wildflower seeds for ppl to plant to help save the bees. General Mvlis RLAVORS Honey, Nut Cheerios NATURALLY FLAVORED HELP BRING BACK THE BEES 110 cheerios Where's Buzz the Bee? Buzz is missing because there's something serious going on with the world's bees.

Do not order these packages please please please no</p> </blockquote> <p>There are way too many reblogs on this saying things like “DON’T EAT HONEY” because you think if the bees have more honey it’ll help them. You guys have no knowledge of Bee Keeping. If you’re going to run and apiary, you are going to be spending a lot of time, effort, sweat, tears, blood and money in making sure those bees are healthy. And if you are earning enough from selling the <b>excess </b>honey that your bees make, you will want them to swarm, or artificially swarm, so you can greatly increase the bee population, take care of more bees, and make more honey.<br/><br/>Here’s some basic facts about Bee Keeping and how it helps bees.<br/></p> <ul><li>One of the biggest challenges to keepers and biggest benefits to bees is pest control inside the hive. Bees can get mites that will kill an entire hive. Bee Keepers can easily treat a hive who have been infested by mites, much more effectively than bees can treat it themselves in the wild. Wild bees will simply remove dead bodies with mites on them, or sometimes abandon a hive that’s infested. Hiveless bees die, or find a new hive if they’re <i>lucky</i>, and if they do, they spread the mites, killing another hive. Bee Keepers mix up a little clove oil into a sugary treat for the bees. Clove oil is harmless to bees and deadly to mites. A little bit of this treatment can easily save a hive. The hard part if catching the infestation before it gets bad. To do that you need the time to be able to afford a thorough examination of your hives, or to hire more hands trained to help you do that. Which means, buy honey to fund this.</li> <li>Bee Keepers who are earning enough from their hives help increase the population of bees. As I touched on above, if you’re making a lot of money, you can afford more hives. They way you do this is to let a hive swarm, or artificially cause a hive to swarm. Both of these break the hive into two hives, both have half the bees form the original hive, then they bee keeper helps them grow back to full population. A good bee keeper can even help control the type of population a hive has, meaning more drones, or even prompting more queens, which will start new hives via artificial swarming. If a bee keeper isn’t making enough money to expand their hives, they are often forced to prevent swarming, which does not grow the population.</li> <li>Bee Keepers will only ever take enough honey so the bees will thrive, and never starve. And if they have to take more honey for some reason (tainted honey, damage to the hive, etc) they will always supplement the hive with extra feed, often in the form of sugar water or honey from a different hive who’s made excess. Running a hive or 12 is expensive, and you need to protect your investments. No keeper would ever take more honey than they need from a hive.</li> </ul><p>I could keep going with reasons why you should buy honey to help bees and keepers alike, but I’ve kept my family waiting on me for 10 minutes writing this out and I’ve got to go. I’m not a bee keeper, but I’m pretty well informed on the topic, and I wouldn’t mind giving it a go some time in the near future. If you’ve got questions I’d be happy to help answer them, or give you a resource to learn yourself.<br/><br/>A nice youtube channel I follow has a guy who knows his bees, and does many of the things I talked about here. I recommend watching him, he’s a good guy and a great teacher of many things. His name is Cody, of Cody’s Lab, here’s a link: <a href="https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLKhDkilF5o6_pFucn5JHd6xy7muHLK6pS">https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLKhDkilF5o6_pFucn5JHd6xy7muHLK6pS</a><br/></p> </blockquote> <p>This was literally the lesson of Bee Movie did we learn nothing?</p>
