Centris pallida was officially discovered and catalogued by William J. Fox in 1899 near Phoenix, Arizona.[1] Fox also discovered Centris cockerelli, Centris errans, and Sphex subhyalinus. This species is closely related to Centris cockerelli in terms of habitat and genus, but is different in terms of mating, color, and subgenus.[2] This bee also belongs to the superfamily Apoidea, and the subfamily Apinae.[1]


The retirement of the Centris name was announced in September 1993,[2] with the 610, 650 and 660AV all being rebranded the following month as Macintosh Quadra machines as part of Apple's effort to reposition their product families to correlate with customer markets instead of price ranges and features. The IIvx was also discontinued in favor of the newly-announced Quadra 605.
Larger females are able to better control the size of their offspring. As stated in the Life Cycle section, more bee bread leads to larger offspring. Larger females are able to gather more pollen and nectar in a shorter amount of time when compared to smaller females. This means that during rich conditions, the larger females can have larger offspring with greater fitness, or if conditions are poor, the females can simply choose to have smaller offspring. There is a lower limit to how small offspring can be, and thus, smaller females can’t make this reduction or increase in size in response to the environment. Smaller females are still able to exist since larger females can’t take advantage of having larger offspring when the density of nesting grounds is low.[12] To put it another way, larger male offspring are less effective in low density nesting grounds since they don’t have as many opportunities to use their size to fight off other males; thus, in low density nesting grounds, small and large males have similar fitness which means that the extra bee bread which the larger male received served no purpose. Smaller males actually do better in low density areas because they don’t have to fight with larger males as much, and by extension, expend less energy. This lack of a reason to produce larger offspring reduces the fitness of the larger females since they have to dig larger tunnels to fit in, but still produce the same size offspring as smaller females.[12]

Centris pallida serve numerous roles for the environment. Like most other bees, they are essential for pollination. Specifically, they pollinate cacti, desert willow, and palo verde.[14] The tunneling ability of these bees aerates the soil, and this allows water from rain to reach plant roots quickly. Their nitrogen rich feces fertilizes the soil.[15] Their stings are mild, so they are not dangerous. The only downside with respect to humans is that their burrowing can leave unsightly mounds. If an area has a large density of burrowing females, then these mounds can be quite noticeable and are difficult to get rid of.[14]
DuProprio, qui affirme aujourd'hui détenir 20 % du marché de la revente, exige des frais fixes de 700 à 1500 $ pour ses services de publicité, et non pas une commission payable à la vente comme les courtiers. Le consommateur économise ainsi plusieurs milliers de dollars s'il réussit à vendre sa maison avec DuProprio. Les courtiers sont embêtés par cette concurrence.
est autocorrélée. Ainsi, un marché a des chances de baisser au cours d'une année N s'il baissait déjà au cours de l'année N-1. Réciproquement, si les prix augmentent au cours d'une année, il existe de fortes chances pour qu'ils augmentent à nouveau l'année suivante. Des périodes pluriannuelles de hausse succèdent donc, après des retournements du marché, à des périodes pluriannuelles de baisse des prix ;
"The condominium segment is booming. Thanks to strong sales and a sharp decrease in listings, the number of months of inventory has dropped significantly over the past year, falling from 10.2 months to 7 months," said Nathalie Bégin, President of the GMREB Board of Directors. "This segment has moved from a buyer's market to a seller's market in just one year," she added.  
Ceux qui préfèrent un environnement tranquille se plairont à Québec. On peut trouver un parc à une certaine distance de la majorité des maisons et les résidents peuvent compter sur la présence de quelques centaines d'espaces verts publics, comme par exemple la Base de plein air de Sainte-Foy et le Parc des Champs-de-Bataille, ce qui fait qu'ils sont faciles d'accès. La ville plaira également à ceux qui préfèrent les environnements silencieux, étant donné qu'il y a peu de bruit lié à la circulation automobile - même si plusieurs secteurs de la ville sont plus bruyants, comme par exemple près de l'une des 3 voies ferrées, de l'Autoroute Félix-Leclerc, de l'Autoroute Henri-IV ou de l'aéroport (YQB).  Quebec - Lire davantage à propos des propriétés à vendre dans cette région
