In one word: brilliant.
Nicolas Trainerbees, who goes by a fake name for a reason that shouldn’t be too hard to guess, has trained his bees to make honey from cannabis.
The 39-year-old Frenchman is an advocate for complete cannabis reform and use of the plant medicinally. For 20 years, he’s worked with bees.
“I have trained bees to do several things, such as collect sugar from fruits, instead of using flowers,” he explains.
Nicolas says he’s been passionate about nature since he was a boy, leading him down this path in life. With his “cannahoney,” he hopes to be able to help others cure their diseases.
“For some time I had known about the health benefits of bee products such as honey, propolis, pollen, wax and royal jelly and also about the benefits of cannabis,” and so he decided to do something about it.
“So if the bee took the resin from cannabis it would also be very beneficial. The aim arose for me to get the bees to obtain this resin,” he added. The “cannahoney” has “floral” aroma, he says.
“It is not smoked, it is ingested and it is good for health,” he adds. Nicolas says that “the bees accept any strain.”
“The bees that produce the cannahoney are not affected by cannabinoids because they do not have an endocannabinoid system,” he says

The month of July will hold the longest total lunar eclipse of this century according to astronomers. Many are now referring to it as Blood Moon 2018.
This blood moon and total lunar eclipse combo will outshine every other eclipse to take place between the years 2001 and 2100!
Blood Moon 2018 will last one hour and 43 minutes, nearly 40 minutes longer than our most recent Super Blue Blood Moon combo that took place on January 31st of this year.
According to Bruce McClure, an astronomer from EarthSky.org, the total lunar eclipse will take place on the night of July 27th and July 28th, peaking around 8:20pm UTC. Keep your eyes peeled!
McClure went on to say, “A partial eclipse precedes and follows the century’s longest total lunar eclipse, each time lasting one hour and six minutes. So, from start to finish, the moon takes nearly four hours to cross the Earth’s dark umbral shadow.”
During the course of the eclipse, when the moon is passing through the shadow cast by planet Earth, the moon will display a deep red and orange color, rather than just disappearing from sight like you might expect.
This unusual effect is know as Rayleigh Scattering; bands of green and violet light in the atmosphere become filtered during an eclipse. Rayleigh Scattering is also the reason for the color of sunsets, the sky, and even blue eyes!
The partial lunar eclipse will begin at 6:24pm UTC and the full show will begin an hour later at 7:30pm UTC. The total eclipse will come to an end by 9:13pm UTC and the moon will be visible in whole again at 10:19pm UTC.
Why Is The Lunar Eclipse So Long?
This July, the full moon and the lunar apogee fall on the exact same date. July 27th, 2018. Lunar apogee is the moon’s farthest orbital point from Earth, making the moon appear extremely small and distant.
Bruce McClure again stated: “Sometimes called an apogean full moon, or micro-moon or mini-moon, this smaller and slower-moving full moon takes more time to cross the Earth’s shadow than does a full moon that’s closer to Earth and moving faster in orbit.”
“That’s why a full moon at or near lunar apogee adds to the duration of a total lunar eclipse. The longest possible total lunar eclipse is one hour and 47 minutes.”

Networking seems like the last priority while trying to balance a full time job, a social life, grocery shopping, and everything in between.
Luckily, there is an easy way to make meaningful connections that doesn’t require schlepping to events and dead-end meetups.
If you’re part of an entrepreneur community than you may have already heard of Shapr, the networking app that’s taken off with almost 900,000 professionals using it daily.
The app facilitates a more efficient, do-it-from-anywhere networking experience, that takes less than two minutes a day.
Using Shapr, you pick up to ten self-selected interests such as #yoga or #marketing to get started. The app will then show you around 15 curated profiles a day of people in your area who share your interests.
Swipe right on those you hope to meet, left to pass, and BAM! You’ll get a notification when the interest is mutual and can take that conversation offline. Here are four tips to get the most out of the app and boost your career:
Get In The Door At Interesting Companies
If you have a 2018 resolution to jump ship at your current company and find a more meaningful role elsewhere, networking is the perfect way to get your foot in the door.
Take others to coffee to learn what they like about their company and assess whether that company would be a potential fit for you. If you see a dream job posting later, reach out and ask your Shapr contact to help submit you.
Starting the process early, learning about interesting companies, and making a connection that can be your internal champion will make a world of difference in the interview process.
Expand Your Perspective
Want to get better at your job? Meeting new people will offer fresh perspectives on trends in your industry or topics that excite you.
Sharing knowledge and ideas can lead you to solutions you may have never thought of.
For example, add #cryptocurrency to your Shapr profile to find someone willing to get you up to speed about bitcoin and Ethereum, or add #WriteronShapr to meet other bloggers and trade notes.
Inspire New Ideas
Coffee with new people gets your blood flowing and can help you brainstorm the ideas necessary to land a big promotion or launch your own business.
Grab a cup and see where the conversation takes you. You may come up with the next big idea and find a cofounder at the same time.
Land More Business
Anyone who does freelance, works in sales, or owns their own business knows they need to drum up referrals to reach their goals.
People willing to network are generally good networkers, which means they have lots of people they can send your way as potential clients.
So get out there and make a good first impression, whether it’s to find a job, land new business or just switch up your routine.

It’s hard to say exactly what attracts two people because there are so many factors. But what does the scientific community have to say about the equation of attractiveness?
Is beauty really only in the eye of the beholder? Or are there certain features that steal the show when a man looks at a woman?
According to research, men are attracted to certain features over others and this is mostly due to a subconscious, animalistic instinct. Traits associated with procreation, sensuality, and health are key players in the art of seduction.
So what are the traits that men secretly find attractive in women?
1. Hourglass figure
An hourglass refers to a hip to waist ratio where thick hips are in! Women often think men like skinny, but body shape attractiveness on an instinctual level has more to do with how its perceived in relation to reproductivity.
Big hips and curved lower backs relate to a woman’s ability to conceive. Women often think men like skinny, but men are most often attracted to a voluptuous figure, which includes wide, child-bearing hips.
A small waist and curvaceous hip region signals youth and fertility. So don’t disguise your shape. If you’ve got hips like Shakira, rock them!

2. Physical symmetry
In ancient Egypt, physical symmetry was the ultimate sign of the perfect beauty. This is perhaps due to its associations with a strong and healthy bloodline.
Whether they know it or not, men are often motivated by an instinctual drive to procreate. When set side by side, a face that is altered to be more symmetrical is perceived as more beautiful.
Don’t worry if you don’t have a perfectly symmetrical face; there are plenty of makeup tutorials to even out asymmetrical features. Besides, no one’s face is perfectly symmetrical.
3. Gorgeous, long tresses
In a 2003 study published in Human Nature, researchers studied the effect of six different hairstyles including: the top bun, disheveled, unkempt, short, medium-length, and long.
The study found that long to medium length hair was perceived not only as more attractive, but a sign of health and longevity.
Short hairstyles tend to seem more manly and updos have a feeling of being more uptight. A long luscious flow is inherently sexy. Ditch the hassle of complicated updos or fishtail braids, let your hair down before you go out.
4. The color red
Forget the little black dress! When it comes to attracting the male gaze, it’s all about the color red.
According to a 2008 study conducted by researchers at the University of Rochester, the color red is highly seductive when it comes to the attraction of men to women.
The study showed that men chose a woman in red over any other color. Think of the colors of Valentine or the red light district, red is the color of seduction and has even been found to be an aphrodisiac.
5. Pheromone smell
When people refer to having good chemistry with someone, they are referring to smell. According to an article in Smithsonian magazine, scent can be altered by mood and other biological changes.
The smell of a women’s tears, for instance, can lower a man’s arousal and testosterone levels. Scent is a natural attractor.
Fragrance companies have been searching for a magical love potion for years, but the chemical composition for inducing love remains a failed pursuit.
There is no one smell that seduces them all. Rather, certain smells attract certain males. Even more interesting, one’s smell can send a message of sexual preference or signal when a woman is having a menstrual cycle.
Perhaps the old saying “love at first sight” should be changed to “love at first smell.”

6. Captivating eyes
It’s no secret that eyes are the windows to the soul. But when it comes to attraction, men really can’t help but be enchanted by beautiful eyes.
Almond shaped eyes are uniquely effective for drawing the attention of a man, but color plays a huge role as well. Bright, light shades of any color will draw a man like a hummingbird to sugar.
There is more to the eye than just overall shape and color. When studied for attractiveness, eyes with curvy slopes and dark eyelashes set further apart were perceived as more appealing.
While closely oriented eyes with droopy eyelids would be seen as less attractive.
7. Tone of voice
According to an article in Psychology Today, men perceive women with a higher pitched voice as more attractive.
Vocal attractiveness has also been found to be a direct indicator of how one’s overall physical attractiveness is perceived.
Women tend to deepen their voices and slow their speech around men in order to induce sexiness, but men actually prefer the higher, lighter tones.
Vocal attractiveness also effects perception of personality. A pleasing voice is associated with a pleasing personality. The great thing about this trait is you can train your voice to be sexier.
8. Plump, kissable lips
A perfect pout is irresistible to men. In a study by Manchester University, lips were found to be the most attractive part of a woman’s body.
Coated in red lipstick, men stared at a woman’s mouth for an average of seven seconds; whereas the eyes or hair held his attention for less than one second.
Thin lips, when donning red lipstick, increased their attractiveness by forty percent.
Lips are seen as the most sensual part of a woman’s body according to this research and coupled with the color red, it’s no wonder men are absolutely captivated by red lips.
The point is, if you want to make an impact, quit fussing with your hair and find the perfect shade to make your lips pop.

The ‘Enneagram of Personality’ is an ancient system of categorizing unique individuals into one of the nine available models.
- The Reformer
- The Helper
- The Achiever
- The Individualist
- The Investigator
- The Loyalist
- The Enthusiast
- The Challenger
- The Peacemaker.
Everyone is considered to be one single type, although it’s possible for a person to have traits belonging to other ones.
While it’s uncertain whether this type is genetically determined, many believe it is already in place at birth.
People of a particular type have several characteristics in common, but regardless of this, they can be quite different. It depends among other things on their level of mental health.
Unhealthy (neurotic) people from a particular type can look very different from healthy ones. A person usually has characteristics of one of the types that lie adjacent to one’s own that are more prominent.
This is called the wing. So someone who is a type 5, might have a 4 wing or a 6 wing. If someone doesn’t have a dominant wing, it is said that the wings are balanced.
There are three centers of intelligence and perception: head, heart and body. Everyone experiences all three, but each personality type has a particular strength in one of them.
This primary center is who we are and is an important key to overcoming weaknesses and developing our potential. Balancing the three centers helps us achieve a more balanced life.
Body-based types lead with the body for movement, sensate awareness and gut-level knowing.
Their focus is on personal security, control, social belonging and taking right action. Also known as the Instinctual Center. These types are Challenger, Peacemaker, and Reformer.
Feeling-based types emphasize the heart for positive and negative feelings, empathy and concern for others, romance and devotion.
Their focus is on success and relationship, performing up to expectations of the job or other people. Also known as the Emotional Center. These types include the Helper, the Achiever and the Individualist.
Thinking-based, head types lead with ideas, gathering information, figuring things out and rational decision-making before acting.
Their focus is on creating certainty and safety, or finding multiple options. Also known as the Intellectual Center. These types are Investigator, Loyalist and Enthusiast.
Below you will find a detailed explanation for each personality type.
You contain all of these types within you, we just have a tendency of identifying strongly with some more than others.
It is believed we start life through one of these models and grow into the other with time. The type we choose to be first always takes precedent because we are most familiar and experienced with it.
Do you want to learn more about your personality and life? You won’t believe what the science of Numerology can reveal about your life.
That’s right, the numerology of your birth date, regardless of your Zodiac sign, can reveal the type of personality you have and it’s pretty crazy how accurate it works!

Challengers are strong willed, straight-forward, powerful and effective. Others may view them as blunt, arrogant, and confrontational.

But what is it? And why does Qualia have so much buzz around it?
Let’s start here…
Your entire awareness of the universe depends on your brain.
And life makes it hard to keep our brains well nourished. Air toxins and poor diet slowly lower our focus and mental energy over time.
Our care for people in our lives can suffer as a result. And our ability to achieve our goals and dreams can fall apart, because our mental and emotional capacities become depleted..
Maybe you eat a clean diet, or take supplements for your body, but what are you taking to deliver premium nourishment for your mind?
How much more could you accomplish if brain fog, procrastination, and low mood didn’t get in the way?
Here’s 4 reasons Qualia can be life-changing for people seeking higher consciousness:
1. Decreasing Stress With Adaptogens
Adaptogens are substances derived from plants and fungi which can decrease cellular stress.
Qualia has no less than eight of them in its formula: artichoke extract, rhodiola, lion’s mane, and many more combine to ease your mind.
2. Decreasing Brain Inflammation
Neuroinflammation can wreak havoc on your ability to feel refreshed and focus. Qualia has six ingredients to decrease neuroinflammation, such as curcumin, green tea extract, and quercetin.
3. Powering Your Brilliance With Nootropic Compounds
Nootropics are substances that may improve our intellectual capacity in areas such as pattern recognition and creativity.
Qualia has a staggering nine of them, such as hordenine from barley grass, vinpocetine from periwinkle, and theobromine from the cocoa plant.
4. Support Energy And Mood With Choline
Choline is a macronutrient that helps support healthy cell function and metabolism. Not getting enough choline in your diet can be the source of mood swings and fatigue.
Choline can be found in both plants and animal products, but Qualia uses vegan sources for choline such as citicoline and alpha gpc.
Qualia offers a 100 day money back guarantee to let consumers see if it works for them, and an astounding 82% of customers reported mental or emotional improvements from a recent survey.

You’re standing in line at the grocery store and the person behind you suddenly begins pouring their heart out to you.
You feel an immediate connection with them because, well, because they are human, and you can’t help but experience their experience right along with them.
Have you ever wondered why a certain friend seems to feel more than others? It could be that he or she is an empath.
An empath hones a magnetism that instantly draws people toward them. It’s not that they are sympathetic–it’s more.
An empath has the ability to not only feel another’s pain, but absorb it, too.
Here are 16 signs you are in the company of an Empath:
1. They are often described as “too sensitive” or even mushy.
This seems to imply that feeling is a bad thing, but being sensitive is an indication that you are still connected to the heart of the human experience.
In a world growing continuously more desensitized, we are need of sensitivity. So, if someone tells you this, take it as a compliment. Being sensitive is a gift.

2. They really, really hate being lied to.
One of the key traits of an empath is being able to sniff out a lie.
Because empaths hone such deep understanding toward human nature, they see lying as absolutely unnecessary. Lying will strike an empath right in the heart.
3. They feel directly impacted by negative images.
Empaths are mostly unable to read or view negative images and forget about them. They soon want to avoid the news or stories of heartbreak at all costs.
4. Crowds overwhelm them.
One of the unusual traits of an empath is their amphibious nature—they are both introverts and extroverts.
However, while they absorb energy from a crowd, their sensitivity toward the ebb of flow of emotions will leave them exhausted after being around so many people.
5. They find peace and happiness in helping others.
Your true sense of happiness occurs when you feel that you are being in some way a service for another human.
When someone needs someone, an empath is the person who will drop what he or she is doing and rush to help. When push comes to shove, an empath will be there.
6. They think twice before pouring another cup of coffee or taking medicine.
Empaths react differently to stimulants like caffeine, which tends to increase anxiety or agitation. Similarly, empaths will often react adversely to medications, and thus, avoid using synthetic solutions.
7. They can’t be anyone but themselves.
In other words, empaths are raw and painstakingly honest. They see no reason to put on a false front. Empaths embrace who they are—the good and the bad.
They accept the bad as a work in progress. Because of such deep self-insight, empaths epitomize true friendship.
8. They know what others are going through and experience it with them.
Empaths are deeply connected to those who they care about, and they care about everyone. So, when someone is going through a rough patch in life—from a break-up to major dental work—empaths experience the pain too.
9. They have an incredible bond with animals.
Pets don’t exist to empaths, as “pet” implies ownership. Rather, for the empath, animals are family.
Places like pet stores and zoos will deeply disturb the empath because animals should be free and not shoved in cages to be gawked at.
10. They are used to being emotionally and physically exhausted.
Carrying the weight of others’ emotions and pain, joy and happiness takes a toll on the empath.
For the lucky empaths, knowing how to process and let go of the daily weight will be an accomplishment, though, still exhausting.
For other empaths, learning to let go will take time and can sometimes lead to utter debilitation.
11. They have a talent for advice.
Empaths know how to listen, and they listen to every word you say. They put themselves in your shoes.
For this reason, it would be unwise to discard the advice of an empath. Nothing they say is wasted breath. They are invested in your success and well-being.
12. They are easily distracted.
Sound familiar? Empaths’ sensitivity causes them to notice the small things many people look past.
They will notice the girl standing alone in the corner, the couple arguing at a nearby table, the sad look in a child’s eyes—you get the idea.
It would be very hard for an empath to get much done working at a coffee shop.
13. They have no room in their life for a narcissist.
An empath will flee at the sign of a narcissist. This is perhaps the one trait they will not invest in trying to help. They know it’s a losing pursuit.
As you can imagine, empaths attract narcissists and they share a very unique bond.
We’ve explained this toxic relationship in a previous article, which you can read here: The Brutal Truth Behind The Toxic Relationship Between A Narcissist And An Empath
14. They are hyper sensitive to sound.
Empaths operate on a unique frequency, which is most likely why certain pitches, buzzes, and bangs can easily disrupt them.
For this reason, empaths will avoid places where loud noise is constantly present. Likewise, pleasing sounds are felt just as intensely, but obviously much more welcomed.
15. They are an above-average listener.
Be assured, when you are in the presence of an empath, they will not have eyes that glaze over while spoken to, they listen—even to strangers or passers-by on the streets.
Even more, empaths are able to listen without judging, so you can trust your words will not be wasted breath.
16. They have a strange effect on electronics.
Say what? It’s true. Empaths have the uncanny ability to cause disruption in electrical currents. It’s not unusual for an empath to experience strange glitches on the computer, a phone that dies too quickly, or the like.
If it has an electrical current, empaths will surely experience some strange phenomena.
If you find that you know an empath, consider yourself lucky!
Likewise, the next time someone tells you that you are too sensitive or the lights flicker when you enter a room, you can be comforted in knowing that you hone an incredible understanding of the human heart and the human condition.
