Looking for an End to the Syrian conflict

America and Russia try to find a solution to end the conflict in Syria - and the knock-on effect this is having on the swelling refugee camps in Jordan.

Plus, a lawyer tells us why Twitter made a 'confidential' application for a flotation on the New York Stock Exchange. Ahead of the upcoming elections in Germany, we hear about the biggest issues being pushed by the electoral candidates. Also, why has a high security prison in Japan rebranded itself using a fluffy, pink and white mascot? And finally: the war on the humble plastic bag.

All this discussed with our guest Peter Ryan, business editor with ABC News in Melbourne.
