      Where is(n't) the new physics? A theorist's perspective on the latest results from ICHEP and Moriond 1h

      Many new ATLAS and CMS results were presented recently at ICHEP and Moriond, and the limits on new physics have expanded greatly. I will review these results, focusing mainly on the SUSY searches. I will discuss their implications for natural SUSY: while vanilla versions of SUSY are increasingly fine-tuned, many other flavors of natural SUSY remain viable. Finally, I will argue that the official ATLAS and CMS limit plots can obscure many potentially interesting fluctuations in the data, and I will briefly highlight some that may deserve further scrutiny.
