Desert birds and lizards are predators of C. pallida, and these bees can be parasitized by the meloid beetle (Tegrodera erosa); however, rain is the largest threat to these bees.[12] At night and during the heat of the day, C. pallida bees will hide under rocks, trees, in burrows, etc. When it rains, the bees can get wet. If the bee is in a burrow, it may simply drown. If the bee is underneath something, when night comes, the bee may freeze to death due to the low temperatures in the desert. Since these bees are solitary, they don’t have the protection of a hive or colony; thus, they are more susceptible to the elements.[11]
The genus Centris contains circa 250 species of large apid bees occurring in the Neotropical and Nearctic regions, from Kansas to Argentina. Most females of these bees possess adaptations for carrying floral oils rather than (or in addition to) pollen or nectar. They visit mainly plants of the family Malpighiaceae to collect oil, but also Plantaginaceae, Calceolariaceae, Krameriaceae and others. Recent studies have shown they are sister to the corbiculate bees, the most well-known and economically important group of bees [1]

Le succès du plus important réseau immobilier du monde4 repose sur deux qualités essentielles: l'expertise et l'efficacité. Pour développer ces qualités fondamentales, RE/MAX a créé le Collège d'enseignement en immobilier (C.E.I.) et RE/MAX International a ouvert l'université RE/MAX à Denver au Colorado. Dans ces institutions, les courtiers reçoivent une formation enrichie qui leur permet de vous assister pendant l'acquisition de votre maison à Laval.

There is a size correlation which determines whether males become patrollers or hoverers. Patrollers tend to be larger so that they can better protect and copulate with emerging females. Smaller males are usually unable to compete as well, and so have to make the best out of a bad situation; thus, they become hoverers. Each group has a different set of behaviors. The patrollers move over a large space containing many other patrollers. Usually, patrollers will frequent the same spots over the course of their lives. Since the area is so large, the cost to defend it against other patrollers would be much greater than the potential mating benefits, so the patrollers show very little territoriality.[11] Patroller males will usually only fight when a breeding female is near. In contrast, each hoverer stakes out an area of about one meter in diameter. These areas don’t overlap with other hoverers. Any fast moving object (i.e. bee, dragonfly, leaf, etc.) that enters a territory will be quickly chased. The chase allows the male bee to determine if a female is unmated, or if an enemy male is in his territory. If it is a male bee, the territory owner will chase it out, but not beyond the boundary of the territory. What is interesting is that every day (or even every several hours) the territory holder will abandon the area to establish a new zone. Often the male will never return to the vacated area, and it will be taken over by another male. This shows that hoverers show a low site tendency but strong territoriality.[11] A balanced ratio of patrollers to hoverers is maintained, and thus, this ratio is an evolutionary stable strategy. If more males become patrollers, then the hoverers will benefit from the reduced competition, and the hoverers' genes will spread until the stable ratio is returned to. The same thing will happen if more males become hoverers.
Collaboration is of the utmost importance at Centris. It takes shape with our team, with our real estate clients, and with our valued partners from Québec and elsewhere, with whom we design approximately 50% of our tools. We encourage the pooling of talent to develop innovative solutions for real estate professionals and adapt tools based on a particular geographical context. At Centris, we see big and we see far: partnerships are essential to our progress.

Initially, the DuProprio application only featured properties for sale in a list, as it was not possible for a library to display Google Maps in a mobile app in 2009. In order to create what is now a commonplace experience for users, our team developed a custom MapKit based on Google Maps Web to display the tiles of the map. We also had to add our own implementation of touch handling and native positioning of properties, because internet performance on mobile devices was terrible at the time. This shows how incredible technological challenges are sometimes hidden behind the simplest user experiences.

Centris pallida are located in dry, hot environments of North America. Specifically, they are in Arizona, Nevada, southern California, New Mexico, and western Mexico.[4] They are a very common bee (especially in Arizona), and are thus classified as Least Concern in terms of conservation.[5] The fur and dark colored exoskeleton allow the bees to survive the cold nights in the desert. During the daytime, C. pallida are almost completely inactive, hiding in shade or in burrows to prevent overheating.[6]
A C. pallida female will find a spot for her nest. She will then dig diagonally down about 12 inches (30 cm). At the end of this tunnel, she will dig an 1 inch (2.5 cm) long vertical chamber where the egg will be laid. The chamber will be about 8 inches (20 cm) below the surface. In this chamber, the female will form a brood pot lined with wax. The brood pot will contain nectar and pollen similar to the bee bread in other bees; however, unlike other bees, the bee bread is the consistency of molasses instead of being solid.[7] The egg is laid on top of the bee bread and sealed in with wax, and the tunnel is partially filled with dirt to protect the egg.[8] A female can create several of the burrows during her lifetime.

Une partie du débat a porté sur l'encadrement des entreprises d'assistance en matière de revente des propriétés qui ne sont pas encadrées par la Loi sur le courtage immobilier. Il s'agit d'entreprises comme DuPropio, dont la publicité « Bye-bye la commission » diffusée pendant la populaire émission de fin d'année a marqué les esprits. L'Organisme d'autoréglementation du courtage immobilier du Québec (OACIQ), en friction avec DuProprio depuis qu'elle existe, figure parmi les organisateurs du débat.
