On today’s show, we’ll talk about yesterday’s fairly rocky stock market; Turkey and Russia’s deal on the construction of a pipeline that will run beneath the Black Sea; a big push from Hewlett Packard and General Mills to increase racial and gender diversity; and romance among seniors at an Ikea store in Shanghai.
