Do you see this as good business news? Bad business news? Good for consumers? Bad for consumers?

@tsarstepan,
I have read a number of negative news posts about Whole Foods. I never go there.

@tsarstepan,
Offhand, I think it's a big, fat nothing. I've heard pharmaceutical stocks took a hit on the news, but can't imagine why. Does Whole Foods push a lot of drugs?

@tsarstepan,
I always feel out of place in Whole Foods. I think maybe I need to get some yoga pants and a tank top before I go back.

Not even close. But I've only been to Whole Foods in NYC. Maybe Whole Foods in other states have a pharmacy aspect?

1* 100 billion stars
In one calculation, the Milky Way has a mass of about 100 billion solar masses, so it is easiest to translate that to 100 billion stars. This accounts for the stars that would be bigger or smaller than our sun, and averages them out. Other mass estimates bring the number up to 400 billion.May 21, 2014

2* "Billions and billions" of stars in a galaxy (after a quote often mistakenly attributed to Carl Sagan) is how many people imagine the number of stars you would find in one. Is there any way to know the answer for sure?


A 'star' is the same as calling it a 'sun'..
