  • Walmart is quietly going on a massive building spree ....building a new wave of smaller stores.... management suggests thousands of new stores within five years. .... this buildout is following the same pattern used when Walmart expanded in the 70's. Superceters will serve as distribution points to feed these new Neighborhood markets. It is all GOOD. Competition is always good. Competition provides the most at the least cost to consumers. Liberials, envirom,entilists, Union leadership, political parties that owe special interest all will whine and moans, spit and spin, cry and sue, but they can't change our capitalist system and that is ALL GOOD also. Very GOOD.

    nonsense...the state departments email has too many eyes. Even the blind among us know that. A ex President's wife would know that. Hillery may not be the best choice but she has no reason to avoid proper channels other than, those channels are known to leak.

    Maybe, Hillary looks somehow younger than when she was first lady. Need to know how she does that. The new guy that declared for President, a republican, speaks my language. Political blood suckers will crucify him. However I believe he will pull enough early support to change the conversation. His speak is directed at the common man. Perhaps his nose hasn't found the sweet spot near the swells butts...yet ?

  • Walmart is slowly growing its yearly revenue by building new stores. Walmart continues to be profitable, increase dividends, buyback shares. But, What happened to the 3 to 5% year over year same store sales gains of the past? If I knew, certain sure, I would probably be managing Walmart or a competitor. My guesses... poor store Location, too much emphasis on targeting customer segments with little disposable income, and too many customers using the five finger discount.

In a new randomized, controlled clinical trial, his team assigned 37 men undergoing elective prostatectomies either to a group that received 4,000 U of vitamin D per day, or to a placebo group that didn't receive vitamin D. The men's prostate glands were removed and examined 60 days later.

    Preliminary results from this study indicate that many of the men who received vitamin D showed improvements in their prostate tumors, whereas the tumors in the placebo group either stayed the same or got worse. Also, vitamin D caused dramatic changes in the expression levels of many cell lipids and proteins, particularly those involved in inflammation. "Cancer is associated with inflammation, especially in the prostate gland," says Hollis. "Vitamin D is really fighting this inflammation within the gland."
