Giant Rock Circles Were Found All Over the World. What Could They Possibly Be?

In Blog by adminLeave a Comment

They weren’t seen in their entirety until the 1920s, but these large stone circles have existed for thousands of years. Once air travel became more popular, pilots and citizens began to notice them in their entirety.

Aptly named the “Big Circles” by archaeologists, they are hundreds of meters in diameter. In fact, they’re so big, you can’t see what they are until you have an aerial view of them. Despite being located in various Middle Eastern countries, the Big Circles are thought to be built for the same reason. That reason, however, remains a total mystery.

It’s amazing how they were able to make such perfect circles without being able to see their work. I can’t even draw a good circle on a regular-size piece of paper.

President to meet with MoveOn, ‘progressive activists’ in closed meeting

In Blog by adminLeave a Comment

With his first round of golf out of the way, President Obama is reported to be kicking off his second term early with a closed-door meeting with leaders of several labor unions as well as what CBS News’ Mark Knoller calls “progressive activists.” The topic? America’s impending leap off the fiscal cliff. Will he ask if they’re for or against it?

About to join @gretawire for talk about coming fiscal cliff meetings: Obama will meet SEIU, AFL-CIO, AFSCME first, then business…

We’re with those who’d like Knoller, or any member of the media, to at least knock on the door.

@markknoller If you tell him you are in a union or are a progressive activist will he let you in? :)
