The (Nasty) Surprise Waiting in your 401(k)

As pensions die out and workers are forced to rely on 401(k) investment plans for retirement it can quickly become confusing to keep track of exactly how much you’re paying to manage your funds. A bill designed to bring transparency to hidden fees of 401(k) plans has just passed a House subcommittee but has an uncertain fate. How closely are you watching your retirement?

Trash Scavengers

Santa Ana residents say nuisance and they’re locking their trash up to stop it.

Mandatory Safe Porn?

Two weeks ago, an anonymous porn star tested positive for HIV but proceeded to work. Now there may be as many as 16 HIV cases on the adult film circuit and AIDS Healthcare Foundation is calling for mandatory condom use on all adult film sets. But even actors are resisting the idea—should condoms be mandatory?
