2 Reasons Why Walmart Can’t Touch Whole Foods (WMT, WFM)

WMT is partnering with Wild Oats Market (originally bought out by Whole Foods, but the deal was nixed by the government) to lower the price on a line of organic foods in the megastore chain. At the moment, the plan rolls out about 100 products in the Wild Oats line. It’s unclear whether it will expand to others. Yeah, that’s the “big news.” So that we’re clear, the market has chewed away roughly $1.5 billion in WFM market cap because Walmart — which already sells some 1,600 organic products — is going to sell about 100 new ones via a new label and at lower prices.

ASME - article on Bering straight

The Bering Strait was last crossed by humans 20,000 years ago during the ice age, when ice formed a bridge between North America and Asia. Today, 47 miles and some of the harshest ocean and arctic conditions separate the two continents. However, there are many who believe there would be great economical, sociological, and political value in connecting the two land masses by bridge or tunnel. Imagine being able to travel from London to Moscow to Washington, DC, all over land. However, despite the potential benefits, there have yet to be any serious attempts to put these concepts into reality. Climatic, Geologic, and Geographic Challenges The Bering Strait lies just south of the Arctic Circle and is subject to long, dark winters and extreme weather [average winter lows of −20 °C (−4 °F) with extreme lows approaching −50 °C (−58 °F)] and high winds. The region is marked by frequent and sometimes large-magnitude earthquakes. Sierra Nevada Corporation. Consolidated Steel Corporation.
