A. Over a 16-year period ending in 2013, the number of women-owned businesses in the United States increased at a rate of 59%, which was 1.5 times the national average. Now, in 2018, women own more than 11.6 million U.S. businesses employing nearly 9 million people and accounting for over $1.7 trillion in revenue.
B. If we value diversity, should we show preference for it, or should we rather move toward equality? I think that what makes this nation great is our kindness to the weakest of our kind, the generosity of our hearts, and the degree to which we truly become color blind.
C. Proposed testing for oil and gas deposits off the South Carolina coast could set off unexploded bombs and radioactive waste dumped on the ocean floor, a group of municipal officials and activists said Wednesday at a news conference. The group called on the federal government to study the potential effects of seismic testing before permitting the work in the Atlantic Ocean. The testing process uses underwater air gun blasts.
