Houston's economy has a broad industrial base in energy, manufacturing, aeronautics, and transportation. It is also leading in health care sectors and building oilfield equipment; only New York City is home to more Fortune 500 headquarters.The Port of Houston ranks first in the United States in international ** waterborne tonnage handled** and second in total cargo tonnage handled. The city has a population from various ethnic and religious backgrounds and a large and growing international community. It is home to many cultural institutions and exhibits, which attract more than 7 million visitors a year to the Museum District. Houston has an active visual and performing arts scene in the Theater District and offers year-round resident companies in all major performing arts.
I have a great deal of difficulty, understanding the highlighted parts.
- Wondering what the word Fortune here means.
- waterborne tonnage handled and ** total cargo tonnage handled** ?
- ** year-round resident companies in all major performing arts**. ?
A million thanks in advance.
