On the third anniversary of Fukushima, a look at how U.S. energy providers calculate the viability of nuclear power versus its risk. Also, we examine the successful business model of Cars.com, which could be sold by the group of newspaper owners which created it in answer to a drop off in car ads. Also on tap, Walgreens is outfitting stores with a new type of software to help guide healthcare providers through checkups, using vast stores of data to tailor questions to a patient’s health history. We ask what predictive software can do to improve our health. Plus, a conversation with Globalist Stephan Richter about the pay disparity between men and women.
