US poll: Black optimism up; Hispanics wary on race

WASHINGTON - One year after the election of President Barack Obama, black optimism about the United States has surged, while Hispanics have become more skeptical about race relations, according to a Pew Research Center poll released Tuesday.

FDIC seeks comment on bank pay plan

WASHINGTON - Federal banking regulators moved Tuesday to seek public input on a plan to link the insurance premiums levied on U.S. banks to the degree of risk-taking encouraged by their executive pay policies.

China takes new steps to curb bank lending

BEIJING - China took new steps Tuesday to control bank lending, ordering institutions to set aside more reserves in a move to avert a surge in credit that Beijing worries might fuel inflation or asset price bubbles.

China's nascent rebound from the global crisis was fueled by a flood of lending by state-owned banks last year. Bankers cut lending under government orders toward the end of 2009 but regulators worry credit might rebound this year.

Parents seek to toss charges in girl's drug death

BROCKTON, Mass. - Parents accused of killing their 4-year-old daughter by overmedicating her with prescription drugs asked a judge Monday to dismiss murder charges, arguing that a new medical report by a prosecution expert supports their claim that the girl died of pneumonia.

Lawyers for Carolyn and Michael Riley said that because the grand jury that indicted the couple did not have the report, they were given "inaccurate" information on the cause of Rebecca Riley's death.

Republicans cite Lott in calling for Reid to quit

WASHINGTON - A double standard? Republicans seeking Sen. Harry Reid's resignation as majority leader over racial remarks he made about Barack Obama say yes - that Reid should be held to the same standard as former GOP Sen. Trent Lott, whose own racial gaffes cost him the Senate leadership in 2002.

Democrats say no, that Reid's comments - while unfortunate - were nothing like Lott's.
