With increasing sanctions against Russia, we take a look at what it could mean for BP's bottom line. Also, this week, 25 companies are looking to go public in the U.S. That would be the most since a week in August 2000 when 28 IPOs listed in the U.S. This week’s offerings are expected to raise some $6.8 billion. We look at what’s behind the current IPO frenzy and what it says about the wider economy. Plus, the U.S. is cutting down on carbon emmissions, but that doesn't mean we're mining any less coal. A look at where all that coal actually goes.
