Obama to veto bill letting Congress weigh in on Iran deal

U.S. President Barack Obama speaks next to Liberian President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf in the Oval Office of the White House in WashingtonBy Julia Edwards WASHINGTON (Reuters) – President Barack Obama would veto a bill recently introduced in the U.S. Senate allowing Congress to weigh in on any deal the United States and other negotiating countries reach with Iran on its nuclear capabilities, the White House said on Saturday. "The president has been clear that now is not the time for Congress to pass additional legislation on Iran.  If this bill is sent to the president, he will veto it," said Bernadette Meehan, a spokeswoman for the White House's National Security Council. The United States and five other major powers are seeking to negotiate an agreement with Iran to curb its nuclear program in exchange for relief from economic sanctions.


China Feb official PMI shrinks for a second straight month

An employee works at a logistic center in HuaibeiActivity in China's factory sector contracted for a second straight month in February on unsteady exports and slowing investment, an official survey showed on Sunday, reinforcing bets that more policy loosening is needed to lift the economy. A separate official services PMI, also released on Sunday, showed growth in the sector accelerated to 53.9, up from 53.7 in January. Accounting for 48 percent of China's $10.2 trillion economy last year, the services sector has weathered the growth downturn better than factories, partly because it depends less on foreign demand. The official PMIs were released shortly after China's central bank cut interest rates late on Saturday, the latest effort to support the world's second-largest economy as its momentum slows and deflation risks rise.


Bronx Building Residents Form Tenants’ Association To Highlight Poor Conditions

NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) – Some Bronx residents say they are dealing with deplorable living conditions and want action.

The disgruntled residents founded 85 Strong Street Tenants’ Association to try to get it fixed.

1010 WINS’ Gary Baumgarten spoke with the tenants of the building who said for three weeks no one in the building had cooking gas and had to use hot plates.

The residents said they complained and some gas was restored to all but 12 of the apartments, including those of the tenants’ association leaders.

“Ironically we did a tenants’ association meeting on Wednesday and all of a sudden on Thursday 80 percent of the building has gas except for the tenants’ association leaders,” Iris Perez said.

Perez also said residents are dealing with water leakage from roofs and outside walls, which causes visible damage.

1010 WINS reached out to the management company but has not yet heard back.
