Corn prices are at a two-year high. How might this affect you? We tell you on today’s show. In sustainability news, Google is investing in an estimated $5 billion offshore wind power system. Internationally, we look at why U.K. media groups are opposing a corporate media maneuver from Rupert Murdoch. And in Hungary, government officials are trying to control the sludge from a toxic spill. Back in the U.S., we look at a new program to help people from skipping their pills, Chicago Mayor Richard Daley’s plan to sell off state assets to pay for the city’s budget shortfall, and a proposed casino in the Maryland suburbs… near a mall. And finally which nation gives the most development aid as a share of GDP? Check out our story for the answer. Here are the songs we played:
- Who’s Keeping Time — OmidBuy
- Video Game — R3 ProductionsBuy
- Maiden Voyage — DJ CamBuy
- My Drive Thru — Various Artists
- Cornflake Girl — Tori AmosBuy
