PRI's The World: 07/06/2015 By a wide margin, the Greeks have said "No" to the latest austerity deal offered by its European counterparts, but the big unanswered question remains: Now what? Also, Pope Francis begins a visit to South America. He's in Ecuador today, where he may square off with the country's conservative president, Rafael Correa. Plus, we'll have a wrap-up of the Women's World Cup, which ended in dramatic fashion Sunday with America's 5-2 victory over Japan.
PRI's The World: 07/03/2015 We're firing up the grill, and setting off some fireworks ? without even leaving the studio. Plus, Human Rights Watch got access to the city of Sadda in Yemen. They found evidence of war violations committed there. Also, two bomb blasts in Bogotá, Colombia have residents rattled. Authorities are blaming a gang with links to a guerrilla group.
PRI's The World: 07/02/2015 Business leaders hate it; organized labor loves it. We're talking about President Obama's plan to make more workers eligible for overtime pay. So what do you think they would make of a plan by the Dutch city of Utrecht to guarantee everyone a minimum salary of $1,000 per month ? whether they work or not? Then, we revisit a Tunisian breakdancing troupe whose goal is to keep kids from being radicalized. The alleged shooter in last week's tourist resort attack in Tunisia had once belonged to a similar troupe ? so does this kind of thing work? Plus, we have to talk about last night's Women's World Cup match. The deciding goal that stopped England from proceeding to the final, was scored by an England player elegantly kicking the ball into the back of her own net. Ouch!
