Today marked a minor milestone in my blog and I want to recognize it, so congratulations to my 60,000th unique visitor! Now on to the news.

Cyprus defended their bailout deal as fears of a renewed EU recession continued to build. The bailout agreement would see protection for depositors under 100,000 euros only while individuals with over the 100k limit will see their deposits frozen, transferred, and partially utilized to help repay debts and reallocate funds away from the now dead Popular Bank of Cyprus. Italy continues with their political stalemate as newly appointed Pier Luigi Bersani refused to include ex-prime minister Silvio Berlusconi in any plans for a new Italian political coalition. The continued political uncertainty of the 3rd largest economic power within the EU does not bode well for the future recovery of the region.

As the Arab state of Oman announced the asylum of ex-Libyan ruler Omar Gaddafi's family, the United States urged the European Union to continue maintaining an asset freeze against Iranian banks suspected of funding Iran's unsanctioned nuclear program. Meanwhile, new evidence toward recent large scale cyber attacks against major U.S. corporations pulled China back into the headlines by linking a major Chinese university to the secretive and highly suspect government agency PLA Unit 61398. Ford's highly controversial India-based advertisements, which featured various women bound and gagged, have been removed and apologized for. While the ads were not approved or published by Ford, the U.S. motor company did issue a formal apology, citing blatant misuse and unapproved representation of their company in the third-party agency's advertisements.

The FAA leaked their plans to review and investigate the possibility of allowing the continued use of certain tablets and e-readers during flight takeoff and landings. If the changes are accepted, frequent flyers could find themselves able to use their favorite electronics in-flight as early as spring of 2014. In Washington D.C., the U.S. Supreme Court prepared for a busy week of hearings and deliberations, where they will hear appeals cases on medical brand monopolies, affirmative action, as well as the extremely polarized topic of same-sex marriage. Opponents, proponents, and curious spectators alike waited out in the freezing spring weather for the chance to be part of the historic case that many are hoping will show an official change in the federal government's stance on same-sex marriage.

In science, a recent study showed that offering too many choices leads to riskier decision making by people. Researchers discovered a new and interesting method of using the aquatic species tuncinate to provide biofuel to vehicles. And scientists presented their findings on using nano-technology to develop new methods of mobile telecommunication never before thought possible.
heorized 35 years ago, the magnetic nano-droplet was created in a modified spintronic oscillator by a team from KTH Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm and the University of Gothenburg. The breakthrough was published in the March 15 issue of Science.
