"and certainly in the bee industry, there's a lot of chaos. people are trying to maintain the old paradigm. there are more and more reports of theft going on, of beekeepers stealing from other beekeepers."as the bee's demise now ripples through own human infrastructure...3.09.50 "that's the signal for the bees to start building up." beekeepers like tim still believe knowledge can turn the tide. 2.59.27"we can start planting high forage. whether we live in an apartment, that can be in a five gallon bucket. whether we have a lawn, we can say, 'i'm not going to be using pesticides and insecticides.'"and if this hive mentality still feels like a lost cause3.19.02"get in there you"tim brod will tell you the hive he hopes to save is a lot bigger than you think. in boulder, i'm andy choi, for the now. beekeepers in california say the recent "unprecedented" hive thefts come just before the state's almond pollination season. california produces 80

4:20 pm
the report found one of the big reasons people aren't getting new cards is they're worried what canceling their old credit card will do to their credit shouldn't close your cards... especially the oldest ones... because that will cause your credit history to appear shorter.that could then hurt your credit score.but you can still get a new card... just put the old card in a secure place like a safe deposit box. and it's not just what you do with those old cards that could impact your credit score. women may have lower credit scores than men even though they have less debt.that's according to a new report that analyzes credit information. the reason may surprise you. it's because women make less on average... which impacts their debt-to-income ratio.but speaking of protecting your finances ... make sure you watch tonight at 9 on your side at six ... with break-ins and home invasions in the news almost

the u-s ranks last in the world when it comes to benefits at work.that's according to a new report out from employment site "glassdoor." "glassdoor."it looked at the u-s compared to 14 european countries.denmark did the best with france close behind.right now in france, employees may soon have a new rule that lets them ignore their emails at home so they can actually disconnect from the office. if you lose your job in denmark you can get 90-percent of what you were making for the next two that to the u-s where we get around half of what we were making for 26're also guaranteed five weeks of paid vacation in denmark.and 18 weeks of maternity leave with your full pay. but those benefits definitely come with a cost.workers in denmark have to turn over more than 38 percent of their pay

welcome back to the now cincinnati... a developing story right now. the fight between apple and the f-b-i is getting even more reaction this refuses to help investigators open the cell phone of one of the san bernardino shooters out of concern it could compromise the security of millions of i-phones. but when it's a matter of a person who killed 14 americans with links to terrorism what's the right thing to do?the now's laura harris asking that very question. out and about today everyone we talked to say if given the option... they pick safety over privacy. 1:11-15 "how would we feel if we were always

(2) the f-b-i can't crack this code without the help of apple. the company is the

program needed to get in. (3) the f-b-i has probably already contacted the cell phone carrier and gotten the limited info they could provide. they now need that detailed info hidden in the phone. (4) reports are apple will be filing an appeal against the court order any day now. now. one law enforcement expert we talked to expects this case to end up before the supreme court.there's also the possiblity congress could get involved and pass a bill to force companies to include so- called "backdoors" built into their products to unlock any encryption if necessary. kentucky and ohio troopers will be out in force on i-75 starting 'tonight at midnight.' they're joining troopers in four other states in a super visible push until sunday night ... to stop speeders and drunk drivers on. in ohio-- 390 people were killed in more than 14-thousand o-v-i related crashes on the state's highways last wear your seatbelt ... obey the speed limit ... and never,
