Business News: USPS missing many late deliveries

(CNN)- Thanks to cost-cutting measures and a shrinking work force, more mail deliveries are missing their evening deadline.  That is according to a new report by the U.S. Postal Service Office of Inspector General.  The problem is worse in four areas of the country, Atlanta, Washington DC, Richmond and Arlington, Virginia, and South Florida, where mail is delivered later than 5 pm about 70 percent of the time.  The postal agency's goal is to complete deliveries before five 95 percent of the time.

(CNN)- Mark this "hash-tag: diversity"! Twitter has posted a report on the demographic make-up of its workforce.  The statistics show the company's staff looks like that of many other tech companies: overwhelmingly male and white.  Overall, only three in 10 Twitter employees are women.  Google, Facebook and Yahoo released similar reports over the past two months.  Twitter said in a blog post it has "a lot of work to do" when it comes to diversity.

(CBS)- The Better Business Bureau has a warning for runners.  Recently the BBB has received several complaints about two different companies that organize 5-k runs.  Both have abruptly cancelled running events and sometimes failed to pay participants a refund.  The BBB says before registering for a running event you should: research the company hosting the event, understand the terms and conditions for refunds, and pay with a credit card because those charges can be easier to dispute than cash.
