Today is a day that finds some Americans celebrating and others commiserating about the electoral result. But it’s also a day that reminds us of what makes the country special. It’s a day that provides an opportunity to look beyond disagreements and divides, identify bold solutions to common problems, and find new ways to work together. It’s a good time for all of us to listen and to learn from each other”.

The data tools like LinkedIn graphs can be expected to serve more cities and states in order to help those in the Government match the worker training and economic development resources against the strongest opportunities in the world.
