      Bumble Bees Give up Sleep to Care for Young, Even When They're Not Their Own - Newsweek

      A study has revealed that bumble bees appear to give up sleep in order to care for their hive's young, even if the offspring isn't their own. 

      Bumble bees studied by scientists in Israel slept less in order to tend to larvae, as well as pupae that don't need feeding.

      Almost all animals sleep. Losing out on it is not only detrimental to how well daily tasks can be carried out, but also to health and survival, the researchers explained in the journal Current Biology. But sometimes skipping shut-eye can be beneficial if it frees up time ...

      Neanderthal Settlement Where Our Prehistoric Relatives Lived for 10,000 Years Discovered in Israel

      A Neanderthal settlement that was occupied by our ancient relatives on multiple occasions over the course of 10,000 years has been discovered by archaeologists in northern Israel.

      The 'Ein Qashish site was first identified in 2005 when flint artifacts and bones that appeared to date to the Stone Age were found. In 2013, after the site was damaged during the construction of a road, researchers were able to excavate almost half of the huge site.

      Blood-sucking Sand Flies Love Munching on Marijuana

      When they’re not sucking the blood of animals, sand flies have a fondness for munching on the marijuana plant (Cannabis sativa), new research suggests.

      An international team of scientists found that in proportion to its abundance, Cannabis sativa was consumed by sand flies much more frequently than expected, suggesting it was highly attractive to the insects.

      According to a paper published in the journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, the findings could have implications for controlling sand fly populations across the globe. This is important because, much like the closely related mosquito, sand flies can spread dangerous ...
