(Global Edition) From the BBC World Service … After intense pressure from shareholders against the move, Unilever does a U-turn on plans to scrap it’s dual-share structure and shift its headquarters away from the U.K. to the Netherlands. Then, Russian president Vladimir Putin is in India Friday meeting with the country's prime minister Narendra Modi. The two countries signed a new defense-weapons deal, but it could provoke the U.S. into imposing fresh sanctions on India. Afterwards, anger with the status-quo political environment is an issue for countries all over the world. But in Brazil, where more than half the current crop of Congresspeople are under investigation in connection to corruption, it’s a big issue for voters. We’ll take you to Sao Paulo to hear from some ready to cast their ballots on Sunday. Today's show is sponsored by American Express (americanexpress.comand PayPal (paypal.com). (10/05/2018)
