Over the past decade, Americans have become more educated. The rate of residents receiving a high school diploma or GED is on an upward trend.

In 2011, 28% of Americans had not graduated high school or received a GED – the same percentage that had received a bachelor’s degree or higher. As of 2021, 35% of Americans have at least a bachelor’s degree, compared with 26% of Americans without a high school diploma or GED.

Data from the US Census Bureau’s American Communities Survey collects information on maximum educational attainment by age group, location and gender. The data used here highlights the maximum educational attainment of the population 25 and older.

Bergen, Norway

If you’re looking for the best place to retire, you might want to break out the atlas: The United States slipped even further down the list in a new ranking.

Four-decade-high inflation, a volatile stock market and ballooning public debt are among the factors threatening the economic security of retirees, according to the 2022 Natixis Investment Managers Global Retirement Index. The index evaluates 18 metrics grouped into four categories: health, finances in retirement, quality of life and material well-being.

Norway climbed up from No. 3 to claim the top spot in the analysis of 44 developed economies, although the Scandinavian country is no stranger to the top of this list: When the index was first published in 2012, Norway topped it back then, too. Switzerland retained its second-place spot from 2021, and Iceland rounded out the top three.

By David Goldman, CNN Business

New York (CNN Business) – Two of North America’s largest railroad companies announced a merger Sunday that would connect freight customers to Canada, the United States and Mexico on a single network for the first time in history.

Canadian Pacific (CP) agreed to purchase Kansas City Southern (KSU) in a deal worth about $25 billion after discounting $3.8 billion of KCS debt that Canadian Pacific will take on.

It would combine two of the industry’s fastest-growing rail companies at a time when online purchases have soared, overwhelming ports and delaying shipments.

So, it seems the man who doesn’t (or can’t read), denies climate change, doesn’t believe in science or reason or USA intelligence agencies.. has stopped jets from flying in our country.

The FAA is another agency this idiot man has corrupted, and made a joke around the world.
