    A day after missing deal deadline, Iran nuclear talks resume

    LAUSANNE, Switzerland (AP) — Negotiations over Iran's nuclear program resumed here Wednesday but were almost immediately beset by competing claims, just hours after diplomats abandoned a March 31 deadline to reach the outline of a deal and agreeing to press on.

Nancy Binay is excited to work in the Senate.
 
The United Nationalist Alliance (UNA) senatorial frontrunner says she also doesn’t mind working with the allies of President Benigno “Noynoy” Aquino III.
 
“Wala namang problema sakin kung makakatrabaho ko sila. Hindi ko naman sila nakaaway before,” Binay told reporters.
 
But Binay, who worked as personal assistant to the vice president, her father, has apprehensions working with Senator Miriam Defensor-Santiago.
 
She admits that out of all the senators who will remain as Senate members in the next 16th Congress, the feisty senator is among those who intimidates her.
 
“I find Senate President Juan Ponce Enrile intimidating. Next is Senator Miriam especially in terms of seniority,” Binay said.
 
“I really look up to them,” she added.
 
Just thinking about working with the likes of Enrile, Santiago, and the type of debates happening in the Senate, Binay admits she's nervous and pressured.
 
Santiago, an International Criminal Court (ICC) judge in waiting, gained notoriety for her legal expertise, intellect and ability to debate.
 
Binay, on the other hand, was criticized for prioritizing her attendance in motorcades and rallies over public forum and debates for the entire duration of the campaign period.
 
“Yung batikos  sa akin, sa tingin ko, this is just the beginning. Today is just the beginning of worst things to come,” Binay said.

“Kahit naman ano na explanation ko, hahanapan at hahanapan nila ako ng butas eh. But I guess sa umpisa lang 'yang mga ganyang pressure,” she added.
