Either in person or on social media during this summer’s confab.
And that’s not sitting well with some Sanders supporters who’ve received or heard about the agreements.

There will be no spitting in baseball this season.
And no high-fives, fist-bumps, hugs, smokeless tobacco and the chewing of sunflower seeds.
Something there will be an abundance of if Major League Baseball can reach an agreement with players on salaries.
They will launch an abbreviated 82-game season in empty stadiums in early July.

“Thanks to the exceptionally clear and dark skies, the thousands of stars and dusty clouds that make up the Milky Way Galaxy are visible,” ESO said in an image description.

Two spiral galaxies collectively known as Arp 271 look like they’re getting ready to collide.
The two interacting galaxies, NGC 5426 and NGC 5427, have formed a bridge of material where new stars are beginning to form.
If the galaxies do end up crashing into each other, the collision will trigger a wave of new star formation over the next few million years, (according to the European Southern Observatory )
This same type of interaction may happen to our own Milky Way galaxy when it collides with the Andromeda galaxy in the next five billion years or so, ESO said.
