The White House hosts a summit Thursday about youth sports and concussions. We take a look at the money and technology going into equipment and tests that can help diagnose concussions almost immediately after a player is injured. Plus, guess who wants to host the 2022 Winter Olympics. Not Poland, Sweden, or Germany. The $51 billion price tag of Sochi is a reminder that the Winter Games create an avalanche of public debt. Even Switzerland voted down an Olympics referendum. What's at stake as the International Olympic Committee tries to find a suitable suitor? Then, as part of our new series LearningCurve on the intersection of education and technology, we provide a history of educational radio. Then after, we talk to Chris Farrell about why he thinks the U.S. should welcome more refugees into the country and what impact such a move might have on the U.S. economy.
A look at the markets, the challenge of reducing concussions and more from our LearningCurve series.
