HARD NUMBERS: What's the loneliest number in the world?

1: The internet is back on in Sudan following a three-week, military-imposed shutdown … but only for a single person. Lawyer Abdel-Adheem Hassan sued to have his internet connection restored, and over the weekend a Sudanese court ruled in his favor. He says that he is the only civilian in the country to have internet access (legally, at least), but that he will return to court this week to fight for the internet rights of his fellow citizens.

1: Brigadier General Laura Yeager started her army career in 1986 and flew a Black Hawk helicopter in Iraq. This Saturday, she is set to become the first woman to lead a US Army Infantry division when she takes command of the California National Guard's 40th Infantry Division.

1: When it comes to Bibles, China is the world's number 1 publisher. HarperCollins Christian Publishing warns that Beijing's dominance in the industry "could result in a Bible shortage" if the US hits all Chinese goods with a 25% tariff as President Trump has threatened to do. Bible Belt and Road anyone?

1: This month marks exactly one year since Saudi Arabia began issuing driver's licenses to women. While a Saudi "transportation official" said back in March that more than 70,000 Saudi women had been issued driver's licenses, verifiable statistics are hard to come by. The New York Times says requests for fresh data on female drivers (or the number of driving schools that cater to them) have gone unanswered.
