Honeybee Disappearances Alarm Beekeepers and Farmers "Box after box is just empty. There's nobody home." That's what a California beekeeper told the New York Times after half of his 100 million honeybees turned up missing. Beekeepers in 23 other states have the same problem. It's the first time this happened nationwide. All over the country, honeybees are flying off in search of pollen and nectar and not coming home. Experts are calling it " colony collapse disorder ." Dennis van Engelsdorp, bee specialist with the State of Pennsylvania, warns it could be "the AIDS of the bee industry."

The Trump Administration says it has lost its "strategic patience." We hear what that might -- or might not -- mean for North Korea, China and the prospects for diplomacy.
