Centris pallida are able to withstand very high internal temperatures when compared to other bees. Males regularly have thoracic temperatures of 48 to 49 degrees Celsius (118.4 to 120.2 degrees Fahrenheit). If the thoracic temperature reaches 51 to 52 degrees Celsius (123.8 to 125.6 degrees Fahrenheit), the bee will become paralyzed and die. Most of the cooling occurs when heat radiates off the abdomen. To prevent overheating, C. pallida have a very high thoracic conductance (rate of heat transfer from the thorax to the abdomen) which is 45 percent higher than that of sphinx moths of the same size. Other than this high thoracic conductance, no other mechanism has been found to help the bee reduce its internal temperature. C. pallida do not appear to have evaporative cooling in the wild as honey bees and bumblebees do.[10]
Eton Centris was originally being developed by Paramount Land Equities, another Lucio Tan-controlled company. In 2009, Eton Properties purchased the Centris development from Paramount in exchange for 1.6 billion newly issued Eton Properties shares. The shares were issued at ₱2.50 each, a premium of ₱0.17 over the volume-weighted average trading price of the shares in the past three months.[5]

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.
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.
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.
VENDUE 6 SEMAINES APRÈS LE PASSAGE DE BYE BYE MAISON - Brigitte et Enock vont à Blainville cette semaine afin de mousser la vente d’une maison située dans un quartier en pleine gentrification. Au salon, la pièce est chaotique. Les meubles sont disparates, et la coloration, alourdissante. Aussi, l’accès à l’escalier y est bloqué. La couleur et la déco seront ajustées, et l’accès à l’escalier, libéré. À la salle à manger, on retrouve un ramassis de meubles et d’objets, et une table mal positionnée. Résultat : la délimitation entre la salle à manger et la cuisine est compromise. Nous allons, entre autres, faire remiser le surplus de meubles, et repositionner ceux qui restent. Dans la cuisine, tout est aligné le long du mur, avec un gros vide au centre. L’ouverture du mur qui sépare la cuisine et l’escalier n’offre un point de vue intéressant de nulle part. Nous la fermerons partiellement de façon originale. Le superflu sera également remisé. Vous en apprendrez également sur la gentrification, et sur les couleurs chaudes et froides.
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]
Le béton demande beaucoup de temps avant de durcir complètement, vous pourriez voir apparaître des fissures capillaires. Ces fissures ne permettent pas l’infiltration d’eau. Si votre fissure n’est pas plus large que l’épaisseur de trois cartes de crédit (3mm), vous n’avez pas à vous inquiéter. Par contre, il faudra cependant vous occuper des fissures plus grossières en les corrigeant vous-même ou en les faisant corriger par un entrepreneur spécialisé.
Issu du milieu artistique, Enock-Robin Turcotte a expérimenté plusieurs volets des arts de la scène. Au cours de ses tournées internationales, il a eu l'occasion de voir et de comparer de nombreux styles de design. Les différents concepts observés lui permettent de mettre à profit toutes ses expériences pour créer des environnements uniques et personnalisés...
