It’s been a tumultuous year in health care; Gregory Warner went over all the details with Kai. Robotics is getting high-tech enough to be used to save disabled children’s lives. As our Internet use becomes more common and more easily accessible, we must remember to consider the amount of energy used at such times. Speaking of energy, a lot more people have begun using energy-efficient LED lights, as a way to save money. And the EPA announced it will set new rules for greenhouse gas emissions. Investors are beginning to get more confident in retail companies. And Stephen Beard reported on one man who’s doing good this holiday season. Here are the songs we played:

  • Reality – RJD2Buy

  • Doctor! Doctor! – Thompson TwinsBuy
  • Girl They Won’t Believe It – Joss StoneBuy
  • Satori a Paris – Marc GrauBuy
