Hello to you, I'm Creshon Saunders at the CNN.com newsroom in Atlanta. Here's a look at what's happening NOW IN THE NEWS.

President Barack Obama is meeting with his Brazilian counterpart at the White House. The two leaders are expected to talk about the troubled global economy, energy and the environment. Brazil is a major U.S. trading partner and thanks to cautious economic policies it's fared better than almost all other major countries in the current economic downturn.

The world's industrial powers are trying to get on the same page these days to deal with the global economic crisis. Finance ministers from the G-20 nations are meeting in Britain right now. Americans and Europeans have a different opinion about how to tackle the crisis though, the US wants to see more government spending, for European leaders the priority is to tighten1 financial regulations. Today's meeting is in preparation for the summit of G-20 leaders in London in April.

All right, we're learning more about Bernie Madoff's personal worth. His lawyers filed documents yesterday that indicate Madoff and his wife had 823 million dollars in assets at the end of last year now that included a seven-million-dollar yacht and a two-million-dollar boat and they also had 22 million dollars in property stretching from New York to the French Riviera. Madoff now occupies a jail cell, the size of a walk-in closet. He'll be sentenced in June and could get 150 years in prison for the 65-billion-dollar Ponzi scam.

The Interfax news agency is reporting that Russian strategic bombers2 may soon be based in Cuba. Moscow has recently tried to improve relations with Cuba which has long been highly critical of Washington. Cuba has never permanently3 hosted Russian fighter planes, but Soviet4 bombers often stopped there during the Cold War.

Another recording5 purportedly6 by Al-Qaeda leader Osama Bin7 Laden8 is calling Israel's recent offensive in Gaza a "holocaust9." Arabic language news network Al-Jazeera aired this message just this morning, but CNN cannot confirm at this time if the tape is in fact authentic10. Now the last time we heard from Bin Laden was in January, when he called for a holy war to stop Israel's military campaign in Gaza.

Those are the headlines this hour. For more on these stories and other news of the day, CNN is your source online, on TV, even when you're on the go.
