So red-blooded fire-breathing American Conservatives are enthusiastically supporting a candidate who is also enthusiastically supported by the commie former-KGB President of Russia. Joe McCarthy must be turning in his grave...

A friend in Ohio pointed me to what looks like an abandoned bit of land art near Columbiana, Ohio (or a bored farmer having fun with a backhoe, or alien landscapers…). The site is visible on google earth (40 deg 52 mins 11secN , 80 deg 37 mins 56 sec W) or near the intersection of Metz Rd and Bull Creek Rd. Or search 2000 Bull Creek Rd, Columbiana,OH in Google maps and you will get close to it — the mound work is on the north side of the railroad tracks, just north of a high tension line.
But Bing has better images than Google Earth — on google earth it almost looks like a random set of dirt piles, but on Bing, it is clearly a carefully arranged array of right-angle piles and a starburst-like geoglyph. Screen grab below.
So, wise G+ friends -- anyone have a clue about it? maybe this is where forest Fenn has buried his $2million treasure puzzle!

Calif economy is now 6th largest in world: http://bit.ly/29ruhQY (nice research, Stephen Levy & CCSCE!)
Buoyed by a still-rising tech sector and expansion in other industries, California jumped ahead of Brazil and France to become the world’s sixth-largest economy in 2015, according to a report released Friday by the Center for Continuing Study of the California Economy. While tech continued to lead California’s growth, the sector wasn’t the largest factor in the state’s rise. “What made 2015 special was the growth spread to Southern California,”...

What could possibly be more obnoxious than those dorky overhead-clogging wheelie-luggage carry-ons that one is constantly dodging at the airport? A motorized ride-on suitcase:
