Colleges and universities are bringing in a record amount of money in charitable donations, and it's no surprise which schools are getting the most. Construction in the U.S. appears to keep growing, but companies are having trouble hiring enough good workers to keep up with demand. A new report shows the powerful impact of breast cancer screenings over the decades. Plus, we take a brief look at Russia's looming Internet shutdown.

Today's show is sponsored by KronosPitney Bowes and Indeed.
