  • Storm Alex clean-up - AS Monaco president chips-in
    The damage of the recent Storm Alex is slowly being cleared up. Along with rock falls and floating trees at sea, the Saint-Martin-Vésubie football pitch suffered severe flood damage. Two 11 year olds, Melvin and Nathan wrote to the AS Monaco president, Dmitri Rybolovlev, asking for help.

    He answered their call to help with a contribution of 250,000 euros towards rebuilding the Louis-Roberi stadium.

    Monaco's new port - in Italy
    Monaco's new marina facility is not in Monaco but nearby in Ventimiglia, Italy. The facility will act as an extension to Monaco's existing crowded ports and will feature top of the line facilities including 178 berths, car parking, shops and a shuttle service to and from Monaco. It is expected to officially open early next summer.

    Week Three - Go Sober for October!

     
    The third week of the Macmillan Cancer Support Go Sober for October has been completed. The BAM Team have raised £1,405 so far. One more week to go so you can still donate to this great cause. 


    The BAM Monaco team can be found here http://www.gosober.org.uk/teams/bam-monaco Click the "Donate to BAM - Monaco" button. You can donate by card or Paypal. This goes direct to the Macmillan Cancer Support charity. You don't have to reveal your name - you can donate anonymously!

    Last year BAM raised funds for the Macmillan Cancer support with a successful Tea and Coffee Afternoon but with this year’s exceptional  global situation Macmillan have come up with this great new initiative.... Go Sober for October.  
    This challenge is all about awareness of social drinking.

    Daylight Saving Time ends for 2020
    Remember the clocks "fall back" this Sunday 25th October (3am becomes 2am). Or if you are in the UK, then 2am goes back to 1am. The US will go back on the first Sunday in November, the 1st. This year the Yukon territory in Canada will stay on permanent daylight saving time. At this time of the year remember to always check what the correct time will be for each party of a telephone or video conference so you don't miss your meeting. 

    Latest Coronavirus Figures
    The situation throughout Europe is changing rapidly so we don't guarantee we'll always have the exact numbers when you read our emails but the total number of people tested positive for coronavirus in the Principality is now 273, with 231 recovered. 

    For consistency with the WHO and neighbouring regions, Monaco only reports residents affected by the coronavirus. 

    Last night, a total of ten patients are being cared for at the CHPG with five in intensive care (3 residents). On Wednesday evening, 36 people are monitored by the Centre de Suivi à Domicile (Home Monitoring Centre ) which medically supports patients with few symptoms that are staying at home.

    Now that autumn is settling in, the government is encouraging residents to get vaccinated against the flu. This could help reduce unnecessary Covid-19 tests.


    Views of Monaco 

    The bee hotel of Jardins Saint Martin - As part of its policy of supporting species conservation action, the Principality of Monaco set up 'bee hotels' in the principality and in neighbouring forest environments in order to study and compare the occupancy rates and the type of insects that occupy the hotels. Scientific monitoring is carried out by a technician who establishes monthly inventories from April to September. These inventories make it possible to quantify the occupancy rate of the hotel but also to identify the species present. The bee hotel of Jardins Saint Martin was installed in July 2013, just above sea level at an altitude of 30 m and facing south / southeast.

    The type of occupation of the Hotel des Jardins Saint Martin is quite specific, as it is located in an urban park. In 2018, few nesting bees were inventoried but many round wasps occupy the hotel. Moreover, the surveys have identified the wasp Passaloecus eremita which had not previously been mentioned in the Alpes-Maritimes and Monaco.

    Pollinating insect hotel - Bees are the main pollinating insects. Their work therefore helps to preserve diversity and is essential to the production of our food. There are two main types of bees, the solitary bee, also known as wild, and the domestic bee, more famous and living in colonies. The solitary bee does does not produce honey but is of great importance for pollination. The solitary bee is independent, each female raises her own offspring. She is autonomous in building her nests, nectar and the pollen are collected in order to feed the next generation of bees.

    The establishment and scientific monitoring of hotels installed by the Principality have been entrusted to the Office National des Forêts (ONF) and the Office pour les Insectes et leur Environnement (Opie), to meet three objectives:
    • educational to raise public awareness of biodiversity and relationships between species,
    • scientific, to better understand the behavior of wild bees,
    • conservation by offering additional nesting sites to bee populations.
    The different habitats - Different types of habitat are available in an insect hotel to promote biodiversity. Some Hymenoptera will prefer wood while others nest more easily in the bricks. Thus, the multiplicity of materials is favoured for increase the supply of potential nests. For example, small bees prefer narrow stems (bamboo stems) for nesting while bumblebees tend to prefer the pierced wooden logs.

    France Residents Permit website for British Citizens
