Pages Jaunes, qui a vécu de beaux jours avec ses bottins téléphoniques, s’est recyclée de peine et de misère au fil des ans dans le numérique avec, notamment, le site Canada411.ca et DuProprio.com. Plus récemment, la compagnie a décidé de réduire ses dépenses et de recentrer ses activités afin d’améliorer sa santé financière. Dans cet esprit, Pages Jaunes a renvoyé son président et chef de la direction l'an dernier et a mis en branle, au début de l'année, un effort de consolidation qui s’est notamment soldé par la mise à pied de quelque 500 employés, soit 18 % de son personnel.
Four varieties of bacteria have been found in the bee bread of the larva: Bacillus circulans, B. coagulans, B. firmus, and B. megaterium. Only the Bacillus genus has been found in the samples taken. Together, these four species were able to hydrolyze starch, ferment glucose, convert nitrates to nitrites, and produce dihydroxyacetone from glycerol. This group of bacteria also lowers the pH of the bee bread. These functions serve not only to protect the larva from other bacteria, but they also digest complex molecules which allow the larva to easily absorb nutrients without expending a lot of energy. The bacteria, in turn, receive a supply of food which results in a mutualistic relationship.

The two categories of behavior for C. pallida males are patrolling and hovering. These strategies are also used to find mates. In one category (the patrollers), male bees will patrol 3–6 centimeters above the ground in search of sites where buried virgin females will emerge. When a male bee finds such a site, he will dig 1–2 centimeters through the soil by gnawing at the surface with his jaws and using his forelegs to remove dirt from the excavation. If a female is found, he will attempt to mate with her either on the surface or at a nearby flower or tree. Other patrollers will sometimes attempt to steal a digging spot that another bee has found. If a bee has already found a female, another patroller bee may separate the male from the female so that it can copulate with the virgin. More often than not, the female (once found) will mate with either the male that found her or with an intruder.
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. 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. 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.

On parle de vente « immobilière (date de création 1920) » lorsque la vente porte sur un bien immobilier. Ne sont normalement compris dans une vente immobilière que les éléments immobiliers. La vente des biens mobiliers doit être réalisée de manière indépendante. En droit, on considère aussi qu'il existe des objets meubles1 qui peuvent devenir immobiliers.
L'immobilier est un terme définissant et incluant toute activité commerciale ou privée ayant trait aux biens immobiliers. Le terme désigne communément les activités de gestion et transaction s'opérant sur ces biens, mais il touche également de nombreuses activités connexes telles que : le logement, la construction, la promotion, le conseil, l'urbanisme, l'architecture, la gérance, etc. Le droit et la finance sont des domaines d'activité indispensables au fonctionnement du marché de l'immobilier.
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. 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.
They are large (up to 3 cm), fast-flying bees, distinguished from the closely related genus Epicharis by the absence of long, whip-like setae that project backwards from just behind the eyes. They are commonly encountered bees in American deserts, and are active at very high ambient temperatures when many other species are in hiding. They can often be seen in large numbers on desert-willow (Chilopsis) and palo verde (Parkinsonia) blossoms. Bees of this genus are of some economical significance in pollinating crops such as Brazil Nut (Bertholletia excelsa) and Cashew (Anacardium occidentale, pollinated by C. tarsata among others).
Macintosh Centris is a family of personal computers designed, manufactured and sold by Apple Computer, Inc. in 1992 and 1993. They were introduced as a replacement for the six-year-old Macintosh II family of computers; the name was chosen to indicate that the consumer was selecting a Macintosh in the center of Apple's product line. Centris machines were the first to offer Motorola 68040 CPUs at a price point around $2,500 USD, making them significantly less expensive (albeit slower) than Quadra computers, but also offering higher performance than the Macintosh LC computers of the time.
Plus tard dans la vidéo, le comédien raconte que la publicité ne reflète pas la réalité. « Souvent, ce qui arrive, c’est que les gens vont vous offrir, vous négocier ; vous allez avoir en dessous. Beaucoup de courtiers que je connais, qui ont eu des maisons sur Duproprio par la suite, qui dise qu’ils ont eu plus dans leurs poches, malgré de payer une rétribution au courtier, que s’ils avaient vendu par eux-mêmes », a-t-il souligné.
