Wells Fargo CEO John Stumpf grilled on Capitol Hill 6 MIN, 30 SEC

After last week's roasting by a Senate Committee, John Stumpf, the CEO of Wells Fargo, apologized to a House Committee today for the bank's enrollment of millions of Americans in new accounts without their approval. But that didn't save him from another round of verbal assaults. Ben McLannahan, US Banking Editor for the Financial Times, has more on the hearing.

Gender politics and women voters 33 MIN, 56 SEC

With the prospect of America's first female president, the issue of gender was inevitable in this year's campaign for the White House. In Monday's debate, Hillary Clinton brought it out in the open, mentioning Donald Trump's humiliation of Miss Universe and a record of sexist behavior. But, for many women, it already had emerged — with Trump's multiple interruptions, his eye rolling and references to Clinton's "stamina." Pundits, tweeters and prognosticators have been arguing ever since about how it will play in the rest of the campaign — and in November's historic election.

It may surprise you that almost 7000 American children are suspended, or even expelled, every year from pre-schools. It turn out that black kids are three and a half times more likely to suffer than fate than white kids. Walter Gilliam is Professor of Psychology at Yale University, who turned his attention from the kids to their teachers.
