Metal object found in Carboniferous coal and other news

Some recent news stuff, much non-dino:

I usually avoid posting news stories from Russian news services. Some
fairly dubious "pseudoscience" material gets into the regular
media--not even rising to the level of concretions identified as
supposed "giant" dinosaur eggs. This one seemed weird enough to treat
as an exception and it has been reposted by the Huffington Post with a
photo. Note the Romanian claim of aluminum "spaceship" parts from the
Jurassic....

The photo for this version is  not the sample….
