  • Detecting extrasolar moons akin to Solar System satellites with an Orbital Sampling Effect

    Astrobiology ^ | March 25, 2014 | Rene Heller
    Despite years of high accuracy observations, none of the available theoretical techniques has yet allowed the confirmation of a moon beyond the Solar System. Methods are currently limited to masses about an order of magnitude higher than the mass of any moon in the Solar System. I here present a new method sensitive to exomoons similar to the known moons. Due to the projection of transiting exomoon orbits onto the celestial plane, satellites appear more often at larger separations from their planet. After about a dozen randomly sampled observations, a photometric orbital sampling effect (OSE) starts to appear in the...

    The Republican field in California’s competitive 7th District is poised to grow after Labor Day, with two prospective candidates planning to make announcements about the race. Former Rep. Doug Ose, a Republican who represented a large portion of the redrawn 7th District from 1999 until 2005, is expected to make an announcement on his plans for the race after Labor Day, according to a source close to Ose’s campaign. The source would not confirm whether Ose plans to run, but other operatives in the Golden State say Ose is likely to enter the race. Another Republican, Igor Birman, who currently...

    Without a doubt, the Republican primary for California's Fourth Congressional District was the highest profile legislative race taking place in yesterday's statewide elections in California. Whether you look at how the race shaped up locally, or how it was covered Inside The Beltway, the battle between conservative State Senator Tom McClintock and moderate former U.S. Representative Doug Ose was truly looked to as an election-day indicator of where the heart and soul of the GOP was, and whether Republicans want to see change in direction that their party has taken in the United States Capitol. Despite the massive financial advantage...

    Not content with his legacy of seriously damaging the Republican Party in California during his term in office, former Gov. Pete Wilson has weighed in on the Sacramento-area Tom McClintock vs. Doug Ose congressional primary ... I lived in Sacramento and was deeply involved in GOP politics during the “Wilson years,” and as such think there are a couple of items Republican voters in the 4th Congressional district ought to take into account as they weigh the liberal Wilson’s endorsement of the liberal Ose. * If Pete Wilson had gotten his way, Ronald Reagan would have never been in the...

    (snip) Doolittle was hailed by elected officials in a vast, stoutly Republican district for bringing home federal dollars. His bountiful political leadership fund furnished the purse strings for candidates and causes. His fiery conservatism plucked the heartstrings of party activists. (snip) Regional elected officials who stood with Doolittle now overwhelmingly support former Sacramento-area Rep. Doug Ose, claiming he is best suited to secure federal funding for local projects and infrastructure. Republican Party activists, particularly the local county GOP central committee members who were among Doolittle's most devout supporters, are breaking strongly for Ose's rival, state Sen. Tom McClintock. (snip) Tom...

    As a Regional Vice Chairman of the California Republican Party, I take seriously my commitment to stay out of contested Republican primaries for partisan office. As such, it has been difficult for me to sit on the sidelines during the epic battle in the 4th Congressional District, because that primary is really all about defining the heart and soul of the GOP. I will leave it to the Republican voters in this large Congressional District in North Eastern California to decide for themselves whether they want to elect former Congressman Doug Ose or State Senator Tom McClintock. All that said,...

    Former Gov. Pete Wilson has lashed out at GOP state Sen. Tom McClintock, saying McClintock couldn't be counted on in the Legislature and should not go to Congress. Wilson, a fellow Republican, made the remarks during a campaign event for the 4th Congressional District GOP primary organized by McClintock rival Doug Ose. The two are battling to replace incumbent GOP Rep. John Doolittle, who is retiring. McClintock was in the state Assembly while Wilson was governor. Wilson said McClintock was the first to criticize but the last to help his own team. McClintock's campaign did not immediately respond to a...

    WASHINGTON – Money pouring into the closely watched primary battle between former Rep. Doug Ose and state Sen. Tom McClintock is approaching $4 million and spending is not far behind, according to reports filed with the Federal Election Commission. The two Republicans are vying in the 4th Congressional District for their party's nomination to succeed Rep. John Doolittle, who is retiring at the end of the year in the face of a three-year federal investigation of his relationship with former lobbyist Jack Abramoff. New reports for April 1 through May 15 showed McClintock raising more money from individual contributors than...

    Dear E-Team: As much as I would like to think this campaign for the Republican nomination in the 4th Congressional district is over, it is not. Although we still hold a sizeable lead, my opponent has unleashed the ugliest smear campaign I have seen in over 30 years in politics attacking both my integrity and my patriotism.  He has backed it with over $2.5 million of his personal fortune and actually bragged that he planned to “bury McClintock in money.” But he hadn’t taken two things into account: the decency of the public and the devotion of supporters like you,...

    To his devotees, state Sen. Tom McClintock is a righteous defender of the Constitution and an unrepentant fighter for reining in government spending. To his detractors, the conservative populist and revered orator is a lone wolf who refuses to bend even when his closest colleagues are preaching compromise. "Lincoln said, 'I am not bound to win, but I am bound to be true,' " said McClintock, a 22-year state lawmaker. "I have stayed true to my convictions." McClintock, the Thousand Oaks lawmaker now running for Congress in Northern California's 4th District, is a man as consistent in his principles as...

    With John Doolittle vacating the 4th Congressional District seat after 16 years, voters will elect someone new. This heavily Republican district stretches from Sacramento to Lake Tahoe and runs up the Sierra Nevada to the Oregon border. The winner of the June 3 Republican primary will face presumptive Democratic nominee Charlie Brown. The GOP race features two well-known candidates. Doug Ose is a land developer and former three-term congressman. Tom McClintock is a 22-year state legislator who has been on the statewide ballot seven times. (Suzanne Jones and Theodore Terbolizard also are on the Republican ballot.) Ose and McClintock have...

    The leading Republican contenders to replace retiring Rep. John Doolittle pounded each other with charges of selling out their public service on Wednesday in a spirited debate reflecting the tense, closely watched primary race. Former Sacramento-area Rep. Doug Ose repeatedly assailed state Sen. Tom McClintock for trumpeting conservative credentials while serving as a career politician "taking inappropriate advantage" of some $300,000 in state per diem payments while living just miles from the Capitol in Elk Grove. McClintock lit into Ose for accepting $600,000 in farm subsidies for agricultural land he owned while serving on a House agricultural committee and making...

    WASHINGTON – Doug Ose is drawing heavily from his personal fortune to pay for his aggressive Republican congressional primary campaign against Thousand Oaks Sen. Tom McClintock. McClintock could be a beneficiary. Ose notified the Federal Election Commission this week that he had pumped $849,000 into his campaign for the 4th Congressional District seat held by Rep. John Doolittle, R-Roseville. Doolittle, under federal investigation, announced in January that he would not run for a 10th term, opening the door to the attack-laden primary battle. Ose's notice, filed Monday as the campaign books on the first quarter were being closed, triggers a...

    Doug Ose's 4th Congressional District campaign is running a new television ad central to one of Ose's themes – that rival Tom McClintock is a more profound political carpetbagger than he is.The ad shows a narrator walking an oversized California map from McClintock's Thousand Oaks-area state Senate district to the 4th District near Sacramento. Ose appears at the end of the ad.The following is the text of the ad and analysis by Peter Hecht of the Bee's Capitol Bureau. • NARRATOR: For 22 years, Tom McClintock has been representing Los Angeles in the Legislature.

    WASHINGTON – The campaign trail is lined with the political wrecks of the unknowns and the unknowables who have fallen along the way in their own personal quest for a seat in Congress. This year, three candidates are hoping to avoid a similar fate as they seek a spot on the ballot in the red-hot campaign for the seat being vacated by Rep. John Doolittle. School district legal analyst Suzanne Jones of Citrus Heights, Cedar Ridge artist Theodore Terbolizard and legal philosopher John Wolfgram will be campaigning in the shadows of Republicans Doug Ose and Tom McClintock and Democrat Charlie...
