The Wall Street Journal reports on how last year's Fukushima Nuclear Plant meltdown is now affecting bluefin tuna that migrate to the California coast of the United States. Surprisingly, researchers are saying that they have detected radioactive cesium isotopes in all of the fish they have tested. Of course, the actual news report and its "experts" are claiming a low to minimum radiation count, but the wise consumer should note otherwise. Unfortunately we all may have to start thinking twice about that sushi...

With student loans in the United States accumulating to over $1 Trillion USD there's very little room left under the rug to hide the reality. The increasing cost of higher education coupled with the terrible job market has become the perfect storm condition that hass allowed student loan debt to rise higher than American credit card debt. That being said, Representative Hansen Clarke of Michigan has just introduced H.R. 4170, the Student Loan Forgiveness Act of 2012, in the House of Representatives--legislation designed to lend a helping hand to those struggling under massive amounts of student loan debt. Folks interested in the bill and its details can check it out in its entirety here or visit to learn more about spreading the word.

Presenting what may very well be the Maybach of shaving tools. The Zafirro Iridium is a $100,000.00 USD Sapphire-bladed razor meant to last a lifetime. Not to mention the 20 years of service included with the razor's purchase and you could say this thing is the Woodrow Wilson of men's accessories (see the 28th president of the United States baller bill below for reference). But after a bit of math and comparison to say, a Gillette Fusion Pro-Glide 4-Pack from Target department stores, we want to point out that not everything that's "iridium" is gold!

American lawyer, Mickey H. Osterreicher, wants the public to know that ever since 9/11 besides, terror, there has been an ever-increasing "War On Photography." According to the National Press Photographers Association (NPPA) attorney, U.S. authorities on federal and local fronts have been clamping down on the First Amendment rights of photo journalists and civilians alike by interfering with, detaining, and even arresting them on the basis of anti-terrorism. Mr. Osterreicher wants to bring light to the injustice by writing about it--particularly issues concerning photography and the law. Interested readers can check out more information via his column on JPG Mag, his Twitter account, or the NPPA blog. Get informed!

Not sure about everyone else, but when we hear the phrase "global recession" we pretty much assume that all world markets are taking some kind of hit, no? Well, according to Rolls-Royce sales in 2011, such isn't necessarily the case for luxury car sales, in fact, the company reported its most successful year to date! The infamous makers of the Phantom sold a whopping 3,538 vehicles last year, 391 more vehicles than their last record year in 1978. It's also highly relevant to note that sales growth in worldwide markets had much to do with the feat. The company reports a 47-percent increase in the Asian Pacific region, 17 in North America, 23 in the Middle East, and a 30-percent growth at home in the UK. Astonishing. Further proof that while things may be globally awry, upper class spending's got more than a healthy pulse!

Just last month, communications giant, Verizon, signed a $3.6 billion dollar deal with "competitors" Comcast, Time Warner, and Bright House Networks. Experts argue that the alliance unofficially spells out the end of the United States' Telecom Act of 1996--a congressional bill that promised consumers fair and competitive tele-communications services. And now a second part of that multi-billion dollar deal is speculated to draw out how each company will actually stay out of one another's way and possibly sell each other's services to overlapping customers--in other words, a cleverly disguised monopoly, as the New York Times reports:

Advocacy group the Electronic Privacy Information Center (EPIC) has issued the United States Department of Homeland Security a lawsuit. The reason? They claim that the government is monitoring blogs, message boards, and social media platforms like Twitter without the public's consent. The scrutiny is said to go so far as to pinpoint specific flag words that, in turn, trigger the agency to track and monitor a user's online activity. Hmm, you don't say?
