Does pot have the ability to stop seizures? I don't think a parent survey counts as data but perhaps this would be worth some research

One in four Canadians declare affiliation to no religion, but why are so many ‘nones’ surprisingly religious?

Bees, bees and more bees

Gwen Pearson aka the bug girl was on the skeptic's guide to the universe talking about the bees and that's kind of what prompted the interest in the subject. I've been in contact with her and she sent me some links related to the subject

Here's a few links I found on my own. I had very little luck finding anything I considered really reliable.

Here’s a report from greenpeace that seems pretty in depth and well sourced http://sos-bees.org/wp-content/uploads/2014/04/BeesInDecline.pdf

 

And finally we get to the story about the archbishop who didn't know that priests raping kids was illegal http://www.nbcnews.com/news/religion/st-louis-archbishop-didnt-know-sex-children-was-crime-n127291
