The Bahamas i/bəˈhɑːməz/, officially the Commonwealth of the Bahamas, is an island country of the Lucayan Archipelago consisting of more than 700 islands, cays, and islets in the Atlantic Ocean; north of Cuba and Hispaniola (Haiti and the Dominican Republic); northwest of the Turks and Caicos Islands; southeast of the US state of Florida and east of the Florida Keys. Its capital is Nassau on the island of New Providence. The designation of "Bahamas" can refer to either the country or the larger island chain that it shares with the Turks and Caicos Islands. As stated in the mandate/manifesto of the Royal Bahamas Defence Force, the Bahamas territory encompasses 470,000 km2 (180,000 sq mi) of ocean space.
Originally inhabited by the Lucayan, a branch of the Arawakan-speaking Taino people, the Bahamas were the site of Columbus' first landfall in the New World in 1492. Although the Spanish never colonised the Bahamas, they shipped the native Lucayans to slavery in Hispaniola. The islands were mostly deserted from 1513 until 1648, when English colonists from Bermuda settled on the island of Eleuthera.

Pharmacy is the science and technique of preparing and dispensing drugs. It is a health profession that links health sciences with chemical sciences and aims to ensure the safe and effective use of pharmaceutical drugs.
The scope of pharmacy practice includes more traditional roles such as compounding and dispensing medications, and it also includes more modern services related to health care, including clinical services, reviewing medications for safety and efficacy, and providing drug information. Pharmacists, therefore, are the experts on drug therapy and are the primary health professionals who optimize use of medication for the benefit of the patients.
An establishment in which pharmacy (in the first sense) is practiced is called a pharmacy (this term is more common in the United States) or a chemist's (which is more common in Great Britain). In the United States and Canada, drugstores commonly sell drugs, as well as miscellaneous items such as confectionery, cosmetics, office supplies, and magazines and occasionally refreshments and groceries.
Pharmacy is the debut studio album by Swedish electronic music duo Galantis, released on 8 June 2015. The album features three singles ("Runaway (U & I)", "You", and "Peanut Butter Jelly") and a promotional single ("Gold Dust").
The first single "You" was originally on their self-titled EP and currently has over eight million plays on Spotify. However, it was not intended to promote Pharmacy, making "Runaway (U & I)" the album's first official single. "Peanut Butter Jelly" was later released on the pre-release of the album.
Galantis released the single "Gold Dust" on 19 February 2015. It reached number one on Hype Machine's Popular Chart.
John Cameron from WeGotThisCovered.com gave Pharmacy a 3.5/5 stars stating "Galantis may have set our expectations a little too high with their 2014 releases" (referencing "Runaway (U & I)", 'You" and "Smile"), stating that even though the album's production values were good, "most of the songs seem to lack originality". Cameron also stated that "the tracks on Pharmacy are not poorly done by any means – it's just that very few of the new ones are all that memorable." A more positive review came from Lucas Sachs from YourEDM.com, he gave the album a "respectable 8.5/10" pointing out track 6 "Louder, Harder, Better" and track 10 "Firebird" as "two new songs from this album that stick out to me due to their excellence in production and writing." Stating that "Louder, Harder, Better" encompasses all that Galantis stands for, and that "Firebird" was his favorite track on the album due to the nostalgic feeling in the lyrics and the added reverb on the word "bird".

Pharmacy was a restaurant in Notting Hill, London, which opened in 1998. The venture was backed, in the early days, by Damien Hirst and the public relations guru, Matthew Freud. It gained further publicity thanks to a dispute with the Royal Pharmaceutical Society of Great Britain which claimed the name and the pill bottles and medical items on display could confuse people looking for a real pharmacy. The name itself was breaching the Medicines Act 1968, which restricts the use of "pharmacy". The restaurant's name was subsequently changed to "Army Chap", and then "Achy Ramp": anagrams of "Pharmacy".
However, initial plans to open further restaurants outside London were quietly dropped and the restaurant itself closed in September 2003.
Hirst, who had only loaned the restaurant the artwork on display on the premises, went on to earn over £11 million when the items were auctioned at Sotheby's.<ref name=Sotheby's>Royal Pharmaceutical Society of Great Britain (October 2004).
