(Global Edition) From the BBC World Service ... Energy giant BP has posted bumper profits, as it benefits from the global recovery in oil prices. The humble soybean has recently been caught up in the tariff war between the U.S. and China, now the crop is suffering from global deforestation. We head to the Cerrado in Brazil to see the impact on soy farmers and local people in an area known for its lush biologically diverse lands. And Spain is the main point of entry for African migrants heading to Europe, but Barcelona is having a hard time finding work for its new arrivals. Today's show is sponsored by Alliance for Lifetime Income (retireyourrisk.org), GAIN Capital Group (gaincapital.com) and U.S. Bank (usbank.com/altitude). (10/30/2018)
