We may have figured out what's killing the bees. Are we brave enough to save them?

FACT CHECK TIME: Colony collapse disorder is a real thing, and it's getting serious. The USDA's Agricultural Research Service says that about one in three bites of food are pollinated by bees. It was a total mystery for years, but scientists at Harvard recently published a paper linking the die-offs to use of neonicotinoids, a particular kind of pesticide that stays in the plant throughout its life.

When the COVID-19 pandemic socially distanced the world and pushed off the 2020 Olympics, we knew the games weren't going to be the same. The fact that they're even happening this year is a miracle, but without spectators and the usual hustle and bustle surrounding the events, it definitely feels different.

But it's not just the games themselves that have changed. The coverage of the Olympics has changed as well, including the unexpected addition of un-expert, uncensored commentary from comedian Kevin Hart and rapper Snoop Dogg on NBC's Peacock.

In the topsy-turvy world we're currently living in, it's both a refreshing and hilarious addition to the Olympic lineup.
