SYDNEY Authentic Rakeem Nunez-Roches Jersey , Sept. 27 (Xinhua) -- Papua New Guinea (PNG) Prime Minister Peter O'Neill has told parliament on Wednesday that before the autonomous island region of Bougainville could hold an independence referendum, they would need ""fulfill obligations clearly stated in the peace agreement.""

Despite a long bloody history of conflict, the two parties signed a treaty a decade ago, which promised Bougainville a referendum before 2020.

However, the agreement also listed a number of conditions.

""That includes a proper establishment of rule of law, proper establishment of a government structure on Bougainville Authentic Ramik Wilson Jersey , proper disposal of weapons - so all those issues are yet to be met,"" O'Neill said.

""So I don't want Papua New Guineans and Bougainvilleans to think that it's an easy path.""

Despite increasing doubts on whether the vote will take place, O'Neill did tell the parliament that PNG had a commitment to Bougainville.

""I know sometimes political differences may stand in the way,"" he said. ""But I want to assure the autonomous Bougainville government and the people of Bougainville that we are there to work with them in resolving these issues.""

The honeybee population appears to have survived the winter in better shape than a year ago Authentic Terrance Mitchell Jersey , but still faces several significant threats, a Purdue University honeybee specialist said.

WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. – The honeybee population appears to have survived the winter in better shape than a year ago, but still faces several significant threats, a Purdue University honeybee specialist said.

After the brutally cold Authentic Bryan Witzmann Jersey , wet winter of 2013-14 in much of the U.S., observers reported one of the largest bee die-offs ever recorded, with a mortality rate of about 65 percent for Indiana, said Greg Hunt, professor of entomology. Based on his primary investigation and discussions with beekeepers, Hunt estimated this year's losses at about 29 percent.

"It seems much better than the year before Authentic Harrison Butker Jersey , even though it was another cold winter," Hunt said.

Honeybees are essential to agriculture because they pollinate food plants such as fruits, nuts and vegetables. According to the U.S. Department of Agriculture, honeybee pollination is worth about $15 billion a year in crop production.

But the honeybee population has been declining for years, with the U.S. losing about one-third of its hives annually, Hunt said. Experts estimate the number of honeybee colonies in the U.S. dropped from about 4 million in the 1970s to about 2.5 million now.

The reasons for the bees' decline aren't entirely clear Authentic Bennie Logan Jersey , Hunt said, although there are likely a number of contributing factors.

Especially baffling is a phenomenon known as colony collapse disorder, when adult worker bees disappear from their hives for no apparent reason, leaving the immature bees in the colony to starve.

"Although colony collapse disorder has generated a lot of attention, symptoms haven't been seen in Indiana or in other states in the past two years," Hunt said.

A class of insecticides called neonicotinoids Authentic Chris Conley Jersey , commonly used on soybean and corn seeds, has also been identified as a threat. In a 2012 study, Hunt and other researchers found high levels of concentrated neonicotinoids in dead bees around agricultural fields.

It is believed the neonicotinoids are absorbed by the talc used in planting and spread to surrounding plants and soil when the talc is released as exhaust from the planting machinery.

Another significant danger facing the bee population is a parasite known as a Varroa mite. The mites feed on bee larva and transmit viruses. If left unchecked, a mite infestation can destroy an entire colony.

The reddish-brown mites are tiny, but visible to the unaided eye. Beekeepers who notice too many mites in their hive should use a commercially available pesticide designed specifically to control Varroa mites, Hunt said.

"The earlier an infestation is identified Authentic Mitch Morse Jersey , the better chance you have of saving the colony," he said.

Replacing a hive that has been lost or damaged by Varroa mites or other causes can be expensive and time-consuming, Hunt said.

"Normally, the bees are ready to pollinate in mid-May," he said. "If a beekeeper has to replace a colony, pollination could be delayed until mid-June."
