Following are a few areas of special consideration for women investors:

People in general are living longer these days, and conventional wisdom will tell you that women tend to outlive men. Studies have, in fact, confirmed that this is the case. According to the National Center for Health Statistics, women outlive men by an

BCC professor Wayne Klug outlines studies showing that the majority of residents are concerned with wind turbines and questions why the state pushes for them.

The Department of Public Utilities held a hearing on Monday on the latest try at developing a wind siting policies. This study is an interagency look at developing guidelines and suggestions for how to permit land-based wind power facilities.

There are too many factors that go into any venture to say something will or will not succeed even before it's begun.
