Male C. pallida are able detect the pheromones which females release and use them to locate female burrows. When a virgin female is about to emerge from her burrow, she releases a scent that wafts up through the soil and is detected by the antenna of the males. This has led to males developing a very acute olfactory sense. Freshly-killed females have been buried to test whether sound also plays a part in male signaling. In these tests, male bees still dug up the dead females, proving that pheromone signaling is the only pathway. Males have also been observed to dig up other males. This shows that males and virgin females give off similar pheromones. Oddly, males also sometimes dig up other digger bee species. It is currently unknown why this occurs.[6]
“The number of condominiums for sale in the Greater Montréal area fell by about 22% in May. A drop like this has not been seen in nearly 15 years,” said Mathieu Cousineau, President of the GMREB Board of Directors. “With strong demand and a decrease in supply, as we have been seeing for several months now, the condominium segment – against all expectations – is on the verge of moving into a seller’s market too,” added Mr. Cousineau.
Details: *By default, the Macintosh Centris 610 only supports a single display, but a second one can be supported with the addition of a compatible PDS or NuBus video card. With the standard VRAM, the system is capable of supporting 512x384 at 16-bit color and 640x480, 800x600 and 832x624 at 8-bit color. With 1 MB of VRAM installed, it can support 640x480, 800x600 and 832x624 at 16-bit color and 832x624, 1024x768 and 1152x870 at 8-bit color.
The egg will then hatch within two weeks, and the grub will eat the nourishment that the mother left. The amount of bee bread provided will directly affect the size of the offspring (more food = larger size). When the food has been eaten and the grub has fully developed, the grub will turn into a prepupa. Over the course of eleven months, the prepupa will undergo metamorphosis to become an adult bee. The adult bee will then dig to the surface in late April or early May, and will live for about a month. By late July, virtually no C. pallida can be found.[7]
En entrevue après le débat, la députée sortante a dit ne pas vouloir interdire les activités de DuProprio. Questionnée pour savoir quelles mesures concrètes un gouvernement du PQ mettrait en place à cet égard, Mme Poirier a parlé d'une campagne de publicité expliquant clairement les différentes protections offertes aux consommateurs quand ceux-ci font affaire tantôt avec un courtier, tantôt avec DuProprio.
Ce sont 20 % des courtiers immobiliers de la province5 qui travaillent sous la bannière RE/MAX et qui participent ainsi à la vente de presque la moitié des propriétés offertes au Québec6, réalisant ainsi une performance remarquable ! Rien d'étonnant à ce que RE/MAX soit la seule bannière du secteur immobilier à figurer sur la liste des 30 entreprises les plus admirées des Québécois, selon Léger Marketing et le journal Les Affaires.
Apple released three computers bearing the Centris name: the Centris 610 (replacing the Macintosh IIsi) and Centris 650 (replacing the Macintosh IIci in form and the Quadra 700 in function), both of which were introduced in March 1993,[1] and the Centris 660AV which followed in July. Apple also considered the Macintosh IIvx to be part of the Centris line. The IIvx was released in October of the previous year, but, according to Apple, their lawyers were unable to complete the trademark check on the "Centris" name in time for the IIvx's release.[1]

The other category of behavior (the hoverers) uses a very different strategy that relies on the inherent limitations of the patroller strategy. Females won't have copulated with a patroller if they weren't found before emerging, or if they departed while the male that found them was fighting off a rival. The hoverers will wait either near plants that are close to emergence areas, regardless of whether the plants are flowering, or at flowering trees and shrubs well away from the emergence areas. These bees will hover anywhere from a few centimeters to eight meters in the air. Since patrollers are generally looking at the ground to find emergence areas, hoverers have less competition over escaped females. Those that are close to the emergence areas are able to quickly spot any females that got away from the patrollers. Male bees that are away from emergence areas stake out flowering plants in the hope that virgin females will arrive seeking food. Also, low-emergence areas are less likely to be patrolled, and thus, more females emerge without copulating.[9]
