    Internet based drug stores

    I'm worried that the new Internet drug stores
    will give Walgreens and other physical stores a run
    for their money. Check out www.drugstore.com; Amazon
    is also getting into the business. With a pe of 60,
    maybe WAG is really risky here, and any negative news
    like real competition will tank the stock.

    • Your equation not only solves the economic model but proves the existance of the beta particle---thanks to Bohr and Rutherford you exist--Nuclear Dude

    • It was University of Chicago not UIC(University
      of Illinois in Chicago); and the man who showed
      fission could be controlled was Fermi(Fermi Lab) not
      Oppenheimer. Oppenheimer organised the group in Los Alamos
      under the name MANHATTAN PROJECT,he is involved in
      making the first atomic bomb toy.

    • You know, the guy who made the "deadly toy" under UIC?

    • i know have to pass 4 wags on way to work and its only 18miles from the house. Ps.. Always busy to!!!

    • Doe he own Walgreen stock? If so its no wonder, you can nap and still make money, and napping twice a day means twice the earnings.

    • But his accomplishments do not rival the
      introduction of the "Salad shooter' or the "Clapper".
      Also
      if we are acknowledging great men-I have a friend
      that took two bonified naps in one day. How's that for
      greatness? Infact he had to buy an alarm clock because his
      morning naps were interfering with his afternoon
      naps!
      How about my discovering the beta particle? Will I go
      alongside Bohr in history?

    • Hey nucdude: Read this; also, Olivia Newton John
      is the great-grand-daughter---a singer from
      Australia. BOHR, Niels (1885-1962). One of the foremost
      scientists of the 20th century, the Nobel prizewinning
      physicist Niels Bohr was the first to apply the quantum
      theory to atomic structure. His interpretation of the
      meaning of quantum physics was to become a basic tenet of
      the science. (See also Quantum Mechanics.)
      Niels
      Henrik David Bohr was born in Copenhagen, Denmark, on
      Oct. 7, 1885. His father was a professor of physiology
      at the University of Copenhagen, and young Bohr grew
      up among scientists. He entered the university in
      1903, winning in 1907 the gold medal of the Royal
      Danish Academy of Sciences and Letters for his
      experiments with the vibrations of water to determine its
      surface tensions.

      In 1911 Bohr went to England
      to study with J.J. Thomson and Ernest Rutherford.
      His first great work began with a study of the
      theoretical implications of the nuclear model of the atom
      proposed by Rutherford. In 1913 he combined the concept of
      the nuclear atom with the quantum theory of Max
      Planck and Albert Einstein, departing radically from
      classical physics. He returned to Copenhagen in 1916 as a
      professor at the university, becoming director in 1920 of
      the university's Institute for Theoretical Physics,
      to which he attracted world-renowned physicists. In
      1922 he won the Nobel prize for physics for his work
      on atomic structure.

      When Bohr visited the
      United States early in 1939, he brought with him the
      knowledge that German scientists had succeeded in splitting
      the uranium atom. Bohr worked during the winter of
      1939-40 at Princeton University, where he developed the
      theory of atomic fission that led directly to the first
      atomic bomb. He returned to Denmark in 1940.


      After the Germans occupied his country, Bohr was active
      in the anti-Nazi resistance movement. Under threat
      of arrest because of his Jewish ancestry, he escaped
      by fishing boat to Sweden in 1943. He was then flown
      secretly to England. In the United States he was an
      adviser on the atomic bomb project but did not remain to
      see the first test bomb exploded. In 1957 he received
      the first United States Atoms for Peace award. He
      died in Copenhagen on Nov. 18, 1962. Bohr's essays
      were collected in 'Atomic Theory and the Description
      of Nature' (1934); 'Atomic Physics and Human
      Knowledge' (1958); and 'Essays, 1958-1962, on Atomic Physics
      and Human Knowledge' (1963). His son, Aage Bohr, was
      a joint winner of the Nobel prize in physics in
      1975 for his own work on atomic structure
