Crop circle identified as symbolic code for pi

Mathematicians are perplexed after a highly complex crop circle appeared in a Wiltshire field - depicting a fundamental mathematical symbol. The circle is, apparently, a coded image representing a complex mathematical number — the first ten digits of pi — and even astrophysicists admit they find it "mind-boggling".
The circular pattern was created in a barley field near Barbury Castle, an Iron Age hill fort, earlier this month. Measuring around 46m (150ft) in diameter, it has had crop circle enthusiasts and experts stumped.

Britain's Clumsiest Dog

Walks for Chester isn't so much a stroll in the park as a near-disaster waiting to happen.
The lurcher will more than likely get stuck down a rabbit hole, charge into a bench or – if he manages to avoid those – get a paw trapped in the car boot on the way home.
The 12-year-old has had nine operations because of his mishaps, having lost teeth, broken his tailbone and dislocated his shoulder.
Firefighters have even been called to free him after getting trapped.
'It all started on the day we got him,' said owner Jim Cockburn, who got Chester from a rescue home in 2004. 'As soon as I saw him he ran straight at me. I shouted at him to stop but he crashed into me.'
The latest incident involved the careless canine being freed by firefighters when he got a paw stuck in a car boot after chasing his ball.
'Most of the time he'll end up falling down the stairs – he probably does it once a week,' added Mr Cockburn, 50.
'He's like a toddler. 'He'll fall over and cry, so you'll give him a hug to make him feel better only for him to do it again.'
Chester's operations include life-saving surgery after he cut his stomach while jumping over a fence.
Luckily, the Dogs Trust – where Chester came from – help out with the bills because he had pre-existing medical conditions.
Mr Cockburn, from Telford, Shropshire, blames an eyesight problem for the mishaps, while vets have said he suffers from a canine form of Alzheimer's disease.

In Moscow it Rains Cement
Russian air force planes dropped a 25-kg (55-lb) sack of cement on a suburban Moscow home last week while seeding clouds to prevent rain from spoiling a holiday.
"A pack of cement used in creating ... good weather in the capital region ... failed to pulverize completely at high altitude and fell on the roof of a house, making a hole about 80-100 cm (2.5-3 ft)," police in Naro-Fominsk told agency RIA-Novosti.
Ahead of major public holidays the Russian Air Force often dispatches up to 12 cargo planes carrying loads of silver iodide, liquid nitrogen and cement powder to seed clouds above Moscow and empty the skies of moisture. Weather specialists said the cement's failure to turn to powder was the first hiccup in 20 years.
