comment Shalsheles Trop
Also from R. Breuer: The vertical bar that always follows a shalshelet is not a psik, but rather is part of the shalshelet itself, just like the vertical bar is part of the munach legarmeh. Since there are two different types of munach, one indicating a break and the other connecting to the next word, the vertical bar distinguishes between these two. Similarly, in Tehilim, Mishlei, and Iyov, there are two te'amim that look like shalshelet, of which the break has a vertical bar. Although the rest of Tanakh only has one type of shalshelet, we keep the bar, since it also indicates a break.

comment Shalsheles Trop
More about shalshelet, from R. Mordechai Breuer's "Taamei HaMiqra": Shalshelet has the same function as segol, namely that it divides the first half of a pasuk (i.e. the part of the pasuk preceding the etnachta) in half, when the first half of the pasuk is long. However, a segol requires a zarqa earlier in the pasuk, so when a segol would occur on the first word of a pasuk, it becomes a shalshelet. This explains why shalshelet always occurs on the first word of the pasuk, and why there is always at least one zaqef between the shalshelet and the following etnachta.

comment Chametz owned by a public company
Fortunately, this is not of immediate practical concern, since the snacks are restocked daily. I just need to know about the supplier. But I still thought it was an interesting question.
