Many Japanese in Tokyo are concerned about the safety of food coming from the northeast region, close to the Fukushima nuclear plant. AT&T announced its plan to purchase T-Mobile, and the result is expected to be major, especially for innovation. Charles Schwab goes into options trading. DirecTV anxiously awaits the outcome of the looming NFL lockout. Health care celebrates its first anniversary. And we heard about the new HBO documentary covering the Triangle Fire.
