Vincent Lafforgue proposes a cryptocurrency system to reward referees

We start from the following two observations:
a) the work of the referees is fundamental and deserves to be valued,
b) the difficulty that the editorial boards of the journals may have in finding referees who check the articles with the greatest care is a serious problem for the sustainability of a flawless scientific research.
Moreover b) has the following two causes (among others):
(i) the time spent by researchers in many tasks, for example administrative tasks, and especially the time wasted in the search for funding,
(ii) the excessive pressure to publish, compared to the lack of reputational rewards for referees, so that too many articles are written and they are not enough checked and improved in the refereeing process.
We suggest to create a system enabling researchers to prove, if they wish, the
referee work they did, without compromizing [sic] their anonymity as referees. We hope it would help for a) and (ii).

and

This text is just a suggestion to be studied, I do not claim it is a good idea. In particular it should not open the door to automated evaluation of research which is a very bad idea. In fact what is proposed is rather a crypto-currency system, where journals give crypto-coins to referees (both for accepted and rejected articles, and taking into account the quality of the reports). The total number of crypto-coins a journal can give is equal to the number of pages published each year, and the value of these crypto-coins would be set by research institutions, depending on the scientific level, virtue and good practices of the journals.

Google Assistant Comes To Older Android Phones

This is a pretty big deal. If you're running Android 5.0 and up, you get the Google Assistant now. Android 5.0 phones would have come out almost 4 years ago. Google is supporting Google Assistant for up to four year old devices. There are still language and country restrictions of course, but that is easy to get around. Often running the English version of the app will bypass the country restrictions and you'll be able to use the Google Assistant on your device no matter where you are in the world.

Astronomers have come up with a new and improved method for measuring the masses of millions of solitary stars, especially those with planetary systems.

Getting accurate measurements of how much stars weigh not only plays a crucial role in understanding how stars are born, evolve and die, but it is also essential in assessing the true nature of the thousands of exoplanets now known to orbit most other stars.

The method is tailor-made for the European Space Agency's Gaia Mission, which is in the process of mapping the Milky Way galaxy in three dimensions, and NASA's upcoming Transiting Exoplanet Survey Satellite (TESS), which is scheduled for launch next year and will survey the 200,000 brightest stars in the firmament looking for alien earths.

"We have developed a novel method for 'weighing' solitary stars," said Stevenson Professor of Physics and Astronomy Keivan Stassun, who directed the development. "First, we use the total light from the star and its parallax to infer its diameter. Next, we analyze the way in which the light from the star flickers, which provides us with a measure of its surface gravity. Then we combine the two to get the star's total mass."

Stassun and his colleagues—Enrico Corsaro from INAF-Osservatorio Astrofisico di Catania in Italy, Joshua Pepper from Leigh University and Scott Gaudi from Ohio State University—describe the method and demonstrate its accuracy using 675 stars of known mass in an article titled "Empirical, accurate masses and radii of single stars with TESS and GAIA" accepted for publication in the Astronomical Journal.

Traditionally, the most accurate method for determining the mass of distant stars is to measure the orbits of double star systems, called binaries. Newton's laws of motion allow astronomers to calculate the masses of both stars by measuring their orbits with considerable accuracy. However, fewer than half of the star systems in the galaxy are binaries, and binaries make up only about one-fifth of red dwarf stars that have become prized hunting grounds for exoplanets, so astronomers have come up with a variety of other methods for estimating the masses of solitary stars. The photometric method that classifies stars by color and brightness is the most general, but it isn't very accurate. Asteroseismology, which measures light fluctuations caused by sound pulses that travel through a star's interior, is highly accurate but only works on several thousand of the closest, brightest stars.

"Our method can measure the mass of a large number of stars with an accuracy of 10 to 25 percent. In most cases, this is far more accurate than is possible with other available methods, and importantly it can be applied to solitary stars so we aren't limited to binaries," Stassun said.

The technique is an extension of an approach that Stassun developed four years ago with graduate student Fabienne Bastien, who is now an assistant professor at Pennsylvania State University. Using special data visualization software developed by a neuro-diverse team of Vanderbilt astronomers, Bastein discovered a subtle flicker pattern in starlight that contains valuable information about a star's surface gravity.

Last year, Stassun and his collaborators developed an empirical method for determining the diameter of stars using published star catalog data. It involves combining information on a star's luminosity and temperature with Gaia Mission parallax data. (The parallax effect is the apparent displacement of an object caused by a change in the observer's point of view.)

"By putting together these two techniques, we have shown that we can estimate the mass of stars catalogued by NASA's Kepler mission with an accuracy of about 25 percent and we estimate that it will provide an accuracy of about 10 percent for the types of stars that the TESS mission will be targeting," said Stassun.

Establishing the mass of a star that possesses a planetary system is a critical factor in determining the mass and size of the planets circling it. An error of 100 percent in the estimate of the mass of a star, which is typical using the photometric method, can result in an error of as much as 67 percent in calculating the mass of its planets. This is roughly equivalent to the difference between a Mercury and an Earth. So, it is extremely important in properly assessing the nature of all the alien worlds that astronomers have begun detecting in recent years.
