Gösta Carlsson också kallad Pollenkungen föddes 1918 i Skörpinge strax utanför Ängelholm. Gösta började i tidig ålder att intressera sig för bin. Redan som tonåring förfogade han över 30 bisamhällen och sålde honung till lokala affärer. Biodlingen var dock en bisyssla och han jobbade fortfarande heltid vid SJ som tågklarerare. Medan tiden gick tog biodlingarna allt mer tid och Gösta bestämde sig för att satsa. Med hjälpa av Åke Asplund och hans bror Eric Carlsson lyckades de utveckla insamling av pollen i stor skala. AB Cernelle startas år 1953. På sextiotalet storsatsade Gösta på Rögle BK, vilket ledde till stora framgångar. Spelare som Ulf Sterner, Thomas Haugh och Des Moroney köptes in. 1963 startades ett dotterbolag till Cernelle, Allergon, som hade avsikt att producera råvaror till allergimediciner. Hösten 1971 gick Gösta offentligt ut med att han den 18 maj 1946 fått besök av utomjordingar. Mötet i gläntan, skall enligt Gösta, gett honom kunskapen hur man utvinner pollen ur pollenkorn. Gösta hittade även en ring och en stav som han påstår att besökarna lämnade efter sig. 1972 lät Gösta uppföra ett UFO-monument på platsen som varje år besöks av nationella och internationella turister.

This is an overview of Europe

Europe is generally agreed to be the birthplace of western culture, including such legendary innovations as the democratic nation-state, football and tomato sauce.

The word Europe comes from the Greek goddess Europa, who was kidnapped by Zeus and plunked down on the island of Crete. Europa gradually changed from referring to mainland Greece until it extended finally to include Norway and Russia.

Don't be confused that Europe is called a continent without looking like an island, the way the other continents do. It's okay. The Ural mountains have steadily been there to divide Europe from Asia for the last 250 million years. Russia technically inhabits "Eurasia".

Europe is presently uniting into one political and economic zone with a common currency called the Euro. The European Union originated in 1993 and is now composed of 27 member states. Its headquarters is in Brussels, Belgium.

Do not confuse the EU with the Council of Europe, which has 47 member states and dates to 1949. These two bodies share the same flag, national anthem, and mission of integrating Europe. The headquarters of the Council are located in Strasbourg, France, and it is most famous for its European Court of Human Rights.

In spite of these two bodies, there is still no single Constitution or set of laws applying to all the countries of Europe. Debate rages over the role of the EU in regards to national sovereignty. As of January 2009, the Lisbon Treaty is the closest thing to a European Constitution, yet it has not been approved by all the EU states.
