Big Brother is at it again you guys, and in 2013 it is worse than ever. New technology means tracking user habits and preferences has become even easier. Of course we all know Facebook will sell our soul to Russia and we seem okay with it, but your privacy is invaded way more than you think.

Google, the company we all know and love knows more about you than your mom. Medical problems, credit scores, religious, political and sexual beliefs are just a few things Google knows about you. Online privacy is a hot-button issue, but like many issues facing the younger generation the current political elite tend to ignore. My state representative and head of The House Science, Space and Technology Committee, Lamar Smith, has a lot of decision making power over the internet and has proposed the privacy killing bill SOPA along with a staunch anti-web voting record.
The older generation needs to realize that the internet isn’t going anywhere, and protecting its natural state is incredibly important. [Via]Share This Infographic
The most common day to give your New Years resolution up has already passed, January 10th. Have you made it thus far? If so good job! But remember, 22% of people drop their resolution by the end of January, will you be part of that statistic?

Remember that thing that happened a while ago? Yeah, it’s still effecting things. The BP Oil spill was a complete and utter catastrophe in competence and waste. Almost 200 MILLION gallons of oil leaked into the gulf of mexico throughout the span of three months in 2010. Countless animals have died and hundreds of oil and fishing industries have been put out of work since this has happened. Not to mention that our beaches have been sullied with tar balls and hurricane oil splatters in the past few years. But surely the money has piled in for prevention and clean up right? Well, it’s taken awhile but finally, 1,000 days later, we’re seeing some of the first dollars flow toward the RESTORE act. But not from BP.
In the days since the spill we’ve seen a few things. Oil in zooplankton is making it’s way up through the food chain, graveyards of corral are now a lot more commonly seen in the gulf, and the effects on the animals themselves has been debilitating both genetically and physically. All in all, this is a disaster that no one really talks about anymore. If you want to make an impact and show to the world that this stuff really matters, go to this site and find out the ways you can help the gulf coast wildlife.Share This Infographic
