Earthquakes, Football and Telemedicine

Welcome to a new week! I hope that you are doing well! Don’t forget that Mornings with Sixty and Me is YOUR show. So, please take the time to join the conversation in the comments section below.

When you share this show with your friends and participate in the discussion, it really motivates me to keep going. Thank you so much for being a part of Sixty and Me!

International News

In international news, we discuss the strong earthquakes that just struck off the coast of Ecuador. I know that we have quite a few women in our community who live in Ecuador. If you are one of these women, please let us know how you are doing. We also talk about the fact that the U.N. has decided to get involved in the situation in South Sudan.

The fallout from the Brexit continues today. Specifically, Angela Eagle has started a campaign to be the next leader of the Labor Party.

U.S. News

In the United States, protests continue across the country related to the Black Lives Matter movement. Of course, last week was difficult for everyone in the U.S. and our thoughts and prayers are with the families of the people who faced this tragedy most directly.

Also in the U.S., we discuss the wild fires that are currently burning in Colorado and California.

Sports News

In sports, Andy Murray won his second Wimbledon. And, of course, the big news in sports today is that Portugal beat France 1-0 in the Euro 2016 championship.

Good News

Today, we discuss Solar Impulse, a solar-powered aircraft developed by a Swiss team. Solar Impulse 2 has been circling around the world for the last few months. Now, it’s getting ready to complete its journey.

Today is world population day. This is an opportunity to think about the challenges that others are facing around the world, from hunger and violence to disease and infant mortality.

There are so many things that we can do to make the world a better place. Today, let’s all make a commitment to leaving a better world for our grandkids than we inherited.

Today’s Discussion: Telemedicine

The digital revolution has impacted so many aspects of our lives. Now, digital technologies are making their way into the world of health care. Doctors are increasingly experimenting with communicating with their patients over the Internet.

So, today’s question is this…

Would you be willing to participate in a conversation with your doctor over Skype? Or, do you feel more comfortable going into the doctor’s office, even if you only have a quick question or non-emergency issue? Please join the conversation!
