A noninteracting low-mass black hole-giant star binary system
Black hole binary systems with companion stars are typically found via their x-ray emission, generated by interaction and accretion. Noninteracting binaries are expected to be plentiful in the Galaxy but must be observed using other methods. We combine radial velocity and photometric variability data to show that the bright, rapidly rotating giant star 2MASS J05215658+4359220 is in a binary system with a massive unseen companion. The system has an orbital period of ~83 days and near-zero eccentricity. The photometric variability period of the giant is consistent with the orbital period, indicating star spots and tidal sync...

And dark: in London, the sun won’t rise until 7:56am – and it will set again at 3:51pm; in Inverness, sunrise will be 8:49am with sunset at 3:31pm. Oh … and it might well be wet. Or even snowing. On top of that, the run-up to Christmas is a busy time: presents to buy, decorations to put up, cards to send … And all of that is likely to mean people are less willing to trek to their nearest polling station and cast a vote in their third general election in four years.

Nepal and Colombia Struggle With Mental Health Burden of Conflict
Credit: SEWA BHATTARAIBy Sewa BhattaraiOct 29 2019 (IPS) Children sit in a circle experimenting with different colours on palettes at a shelter in Godavari one morning this week.
