The Wal-Mart You Don't Know
Fast Company looks at Wal-Mart's pricing practices and their sometimes devastating
pressures it exerts on the companies it does business with.

  • Indeed, as Vlasic discovered, the real story of Wal-Mart, the story that never gets told, is the story of the pressure the biggest retailer relentlessly applies to its suppliers in the name of bringing us 'every day low prices.' It's the story of what that pressure does to the companies Wal-Mart does business with, to U.S

  • That story can be found floating in a gallon jar of pickles at Wal-Mart

  • It declined to talk in detail about its relationships with its suppliers for this story

  • You just don't want to piss them off.' As a result, this story was reported in an unusual way: by speaking with dozens of people who have spent years selling to Wal-Mart, or consulting to companies that sell to Wal-Mart, but who no longer work for companies that do business with Wal-Mart

  • Nelson extracts his own moral from the story, which is that we can scientifically detect the result of intelligent action without having to exclude every possible natural source of the hormonal imbalance, and, implicitly, that therefore ID is a viable scientific program and - ta-dah! – those evil Darwinists who claim otherwise are just selling smoke

  • We’re not making this stuff up! The Moral of the story is that it’s best to put the old brain in gear before engaging the mouth

  • A story is beginning to emerge, though, that shows that midline fin development and evolution is a wonderful example of a general principle: modularity and the reuse of hierarchies of genes

  • This probably means the pro-ID/creationism science standards are history

  • I have not read the book, but I had the impression it was a best-selling history of fundamentalism and a comparative study of the fundamentalist phenomenon in various religions

  • It overviews some history of Christian fundamentalism and the like, and goes into the Scopes Trial

  • I'd go so far as to suggest that one of the most important events in our evolutionary history was the basic one of taking a symmetrical ball of cells and imposing on it a coordinate system, creating positional information that allowed cells to have specific identities in particular places in the embryo

  • For the US, Tora Bora wasn't about capturing caverns or destroying fortifications - it was about taking the world's most wanted terrorist 'dead or alive.' In retrospect, it becomes clear that the battle's underlying story is of how scant intelligence, poorly chosen allies, and dubious military tactics fumbled a golden opportunity to capture bin Laden as well as many senior Al Qaeda commanders
