The episode airs again tonight on the Science Channel. This location is about an hour south of us along the Columbia River. They were right here in town some years ago testing to see if any bugs could survive a nuclear blast.
The Reach, on the Columbia River, is home to a lot of animals, all protected and mostly alone as the whole area is closed to the public. (Science research, Cold War cleanup and one working nuclear plant). This picture was taken on a day when they counted 141 eagles. Isn't he a handsome fellow?

Although the company arguably falls into the “larger” startup category after raising a huge $73 million round announced in November, the buy-sell Craigslist competitor has remained nearly silent about its plans until 2015.
Founders Nick Huzar and Arean van Veelen broke that silence in the fall to talk about the massive plans for OfferUp. The biggest goal? Create something so great that no one has to use Craigslist again to buy or sell stuff.
OfferUp is hyperlocal, hypermobile friendly and growing like crazy. The startup said $2.9 billion of transactions were made on the site between January and November.
