In 1492, Columbus sailed the ocean blue. . . . Thirty-six days after leaving the Canary Islands, where he refitted and resupplied his ships, he made landfall in the Bahamas. As Columbus himself indirectly acknowledged, it is possible that other intrepid mariners saw the New World before he did, but his landing is rightly celebrated, for it marked the start of continuous, recorded exploration and settlement of the Western Hemisphere, first by Spaniards and then, as Spain declined following the defeat of her Armada, by many other nations.

Wal-Mart wants to extract more green out of greening. The retail giant's supercenter in Lancaster recently installed fuel cells that provide half of the electricity to the 222,876-square-foot store. It has punched holes in the roof for skylights that provide 70% of the store's lighting needs during the day. To help keep the scorching sun at bay and cool the building naturally, it has painted the roof white. The store has been recognized for being eco-friendly, but Wal-Mart Stores Inc. officials say they're actually happier with how the upgrades have improved the bottom line.
