Begins at 13:33: The Russian economy is nowhere near as strong as it once ways. A decade ago, the Russian economy was growing at a rate of 7 percent a year, but in 2013, it grew by just 1.3 percent. Ruchir Sharma, head of emerging markets at Morgan Stanley Investment Management, provides a look at how wealthy Russians are dealing with the Obama Administration’s sanctions—and what the sanctions might mean for the Russian economy.

Begins at 25:51: On April 12, more than 1,500 dancers from over 30 states will come together for a "water dance," a project to draw attention to water issues around the country. At exactly 4:00 pm Eastern, all of the dancers simultaneously begin, performing special dances crafted for any water site nearby. Dale Andree is the founder and director of National Water Dance, a movement she says comes naturally to all us as humans.
