Dems block banking regulations?

In a discussion that I had with my brother over the holidays, he explained to me how the banking /investment failure was all the democrats fault. After picking myself up off the floor, he continued to explain to me how the dems blocked a bill that the republicans were trying to get through the senate to increase regulations on banks and their investment practices. After much googling, I am still unable to find what he could be referring to. Does this bill sound familiar to anyone? [more inside]

Is it really that risky to take a GPS unit to Russia?

This travel advisory from the State Department website, dated 1998, states that the use of GPS units is highly regulated in Russia and that it is risky to bring one unless it is fully documented. Now, GPS units are a lot more common today than they were in 1998. Do I really have to worry about this? I am planning a multi-country trip and I could mail myself the GPS ahead of time to my post-Russia destination if I had to. I am an amateur photographer and I use the unit to tag the location of photos I have taken.
