i suspect the connection observed here has just as much to do with how many people have access to medical care in urban areas...

Isn't that physically impossible?

The astronomical definition of 'star' is "a celestial body of hot gases that radiates energy derived from thermonuclear reactions in the interior"

I think this is referring to the same or a similar thing but:

i think it would probably have been more accurate to call that first link a "former" star, but still technically a star. on that second link, it's not actually talking about the inner mass of the star but rather the outer appearance, a phenomenon that makes it look like a diamond. it's a little different, interesting though. thumb up
