For motion picture exhibitors laid low by COVID 19, the resurrection of the drive in theater is more an exercise in desperation than nostalgia, a back to the future gambit seeking to dip into the only safe space revenue stream for theatrical cinema. Of course, catering to moviegoers encased in vehicles has the added appeal of avoiding the nightmarish protocols that theaters under roofs must abide by: socially distanced seating, masking of moviegoers, and disinfecting the premises.Drive ins mdash; or, in old trade press lingo, "ozoners " mdash; never really went away, but the venues first proliferated in the 1950s and peaked in the 1960s when the postwar baby boom and motorized suburbs nurtured the open air alternative to the traditional ”hardtops. ” In 1960, around 5,000 drive ins operated in America, compared to 13,200 conventional theaters, a market share that contributed a hefty 23 percent of annual box office gross, Variety reported at the time. Beginning in the 1970s, when multiscreen venues in malls became the theatrical norm, the popularity of the drive in declined steadily and eventually cratered. In 2019, according to the National Association of Theatre Owners, drive ins accounted for only 559 of the 41,072 screens in America, with a mere handful operating year round. The upshot: many benighted souls born after say, 1990, have never watched a movie from the inside of a car or perched atop its hood.

Answer: The Church provides a clear answer to this question: a Catholic is not permitted to become a Mason. The reasoning behind the prohibition requires some explanation. First, we will consider a brief history of Freemasonry, then, what the Church has declared regarding Freemasonry, and finally, we will look into the theological significance of the Church s practice.From Cathedrals to Lodges In the Middle Ages, stoneworkers (masons) organized themselves into guilds to build cathedrals throughout Europe. When cathedral construction declined after the Protestant Reformation, however, many guilds began accepting non stoneworkers to increase their memberships. After the continued decline of stonework, masonic guilds became fraternal organizations to discuss politics and philosophy.

To check up on how bees have been handling the changing climate, researchers looked at 66 bumblebee species across North America and Europe. They compared baseline population data collected between 1901 and 1974 to modern data, collected between 2000 and 2014. Then they looked at how bee populations changed during some of the hottest and coldest months, and months with the most and least amount of precipitation. What they found was not particularly promising. The probability of bees occupying a given region declined by 46 percent in North America and 16 percent in Europe in large part due to extreme heat linked to climate change. The researchers suggested that bees are not colonizing and repopulating during months where they experience heat that pushes past their typical thermal limits. In fact, some species are abandoning hotter regions, resulting in a 30 percent decline in the likelihood of seeing bumblebees in a given location.That is some bad news for bees at a time when it seems like things couldn''t get much worse for the little creatures. Basically everywhere they turn, humans have started to cut into their environment in some way. In more commercial settings like on farms, bees are being devastated by the use of pesticides. A number of studies have found that commonly used insecticides and weed killers have had adverse effects not only on bees themselves but also on the plants that they count on as a food source. This has become a global epidemic as more and more developing countries embrace the use of these chemicals to help keep up with the needs of a growing population and increased demand for food crops. In Brazil, for example, pesticide use has skyrocketed by more than 770 percent over the last two decades, according to Bloomberg. The result is a shocking drop in the bee population. The insects are dying by the millions in the country. More than 500 million honey bees were found dead across four states in the country in the spring of 2019, largely the result of exposure to harmful chemicals. Even when those chemicals don''t kill bees outright, they effectively maim them, weakening them to the point of being unable to reproduce. This can lead to a phenomenon known as colony collapse disorder, wherein thousands of bees die suddenly and seemingly all at once. The use of pesticides has largely been thought responsible for pushing pollinators and other insects to the brink of extinction. A 2019 study published in the journal Biological Conservation found that as much as 40 percent of all insects are threatened with complete extinction simply because of exposure to chemicals found in insecticides and pesticides.
