As the Supreme Court starts its fall session, one case involving affirmative action has caught the attention of businesses. A Sundance documentary that argues America's profit-driven health care system isn't necessarily making people healthier has an unlikely backer. And what's the strategy behind the U.S. Strategic Petroleum Reserve? Reporter Eve Troeh tells us. Plus, stories on Japan's gloomy manufacturers, Victoria's Secret at Cowboys stadium, cell phone location privacy, and Greece.
