09-18-2014- Marketplace- Space Race Gets Added Boost

Thursday, September 18, 2014

Nearly half of all households in major cities don’t have enough money saved to cover essential expenses in an emergency, according to a new study from Corporation for Enterprise Developments. We look at how much people are benefiting from the recovering economy when a job loss or major medical bill can derail their financial lives.

One that could potentially replace the Russian engines the US relies on – and gain an advantage over his rival, Elon Musk. Also, tomorrow the White House will unveil its campaign effort to curb sexual assaults on college campuses. It's called "it's On Us" and it focuses on the men's role in preventing sexual violence. Schools have been responding with training programs, tighter security etc.  But there is a cost to getting these programs off the ground.
