A security guard at Washington’s Union Station on Friday shot a man who had allegedly stabbed a woman, police said, and both the man and the woman were being treated at area hospitals for injuries that were not life-threatening.

The guard shot a male suspect who had stabbed a woman in an adjacent building, said Metropolitan Police Department’s Jeff Brown, describing it as an “isolated incident.”

The popular tourist destination, the second busiest rail station in the United States, was temporarily evacuated and some people “sheltered in place,” Brown told reporters. The station is half a mile (1 km) from the U.S. Senate.

Amtrak, which serves about 5 million train riders annually at the station, said it had resumed operations “after a brief suspension due to police activity.”

After co-host Joy Behar read the president's tweet from Thursday morning where he proclaimed, "So ridiculous. Greta must work on her Anger Management problem, then go to a good old fashioned movie with a friend! Chill Greta, Chill!" she called the president out for being jealous of the teen for getting the Time magazine cover he so desperately wanted.

Supermassive black hole at the center of our galaxy may have a friend

Published

Do supermassive black holes have friends? The nature of galaxy formation suggests that the answer is yes, and in fact, pairs of supermassive black holes should be common in the universe.

I am an astrophysicist and am interested in a wide range of theoretical problems in astrophysics, from the formation of the very first galaxies to the gravitational interactions of black holes, stars and even planets.
