Distinguishing black holes from naked singularities through…

We show that, in principle, a slowly evolving gravitationally collapsing perfect fluid cloud can asymptotically settle to a static spherically symmetric equilibrium configuration with a naked singularity at the center. We consider one such asymptotic final configuration with a finite outer radius, and construct a toy model in which it is matched to a Schwarzschild exterior geometry. We examine the properties of circular orbits in this model. We then investigate the observational signatures of a thermal accretion disc in this spacetime, comparing them with the signatures expected for a disc around a black hole of the same mass. Several notable differences emerge. A disc around the naked singularity is much more luminous than one around an equivalent black hole. Also, the disc around the naked singularity has a spectrum with a high frequency power law segment that carries a major fraction of the total luminosity. Thus, at least some naked singularities can, in principle, be distinguished observationally from the black holes of the same mass. We discuss the possible implications of these results.

How taking nude selfie videos helped me start loving my plus-size body

I’ve started taking nude selfie videos of me stepping out of the shower or doing yoga in the living room. Sometimes a video reminds me of how my plus-size body falls short—ripples of cellulite in places I wish were smooth. Sometimes it feels like a reclamation: My body is functional and powerful.

How a German sauna helped me accept my body

How getting naked in a German sauna helped me come to terms with my body

German spa culture requires nudity in the saunas. No underwear, no swimsuits. Just your skin and whatever hair and tattoos you might have on it. A towel is required to lay on the sauna benches, but wearing anything else is strictly verboten. When it comes to this particular brand of self-care, part of the adventure is letting go… of everything. But for an expat like me, who has certain hang-ups about their body, this can prove highly challenging.

My Weekend at a Clothing-Optional Resort

Auto Draft

“I couldn’t help wondering how thoroughly they had applied their sunscreen, and how dire the consequences would be should they find out later they missed a spot ‘down there.'” Despite having spent many, many weekends vacationing in Palm Springs, not once have I ever stayed…
