Radio bursts from ‘zombie’ black holes excite astronomers
When a hapless star ventures too close to one of the supermassive black holes that lurk at the center of galaxies, it’s torn to shreds and stretched like spaghetti. In this so-called tidal disruption event (TDE), the black hole dines on the stellar remnants, which wrap around the black hole’s belly in an accretion disk. During the feast, the black hole can glow brighter than a supernova for months, before returning to a quiet state of hibernation. Or so the story usually goes. Continued monitoring by patient astronomers has now revealed a few cases in which black holes wake up and belch matter and energy, ...

Plantwatch: Dunes – the battle to save the UK’s sandscapes
A huge conservation project is under way to protect these precious and threatened habitatsDunes are more than just piles of sand blocking the way to a beach. These are some of Britain ’s most precious and threatened habitats, a sanctuary for rare plants and wildlife adapted to living in sand, such as fen orchids, natterjack toads and sand lizards.But sand dunes have declined by a third since 1900, under assault from aggressive invading plants such as sea buckthorn, and nitrogen pollution has enriched the poor nutrient soils, driving out native dune plants. The management of dunes has also been bungled by fencing and hedg...

The Truth About Common Digestive Health Fears
Everyone experiences digestive problems now and then, and they’re nobody’s idea of a good time. In a survey of nearly 72,000 adults in the U.S., 61% reported having had at least one gastrointestinal (GI) symptom over the previous week, and within that group, 58% said they’d had two or more GI symptoms over the past week, according to a study in a 2018 issue of the American Journal of Gastroenterology.
