Scientists discover new planet 11 light-years from Earth - and it could be habitable 

Evening Standard logo
An Earth-sized planet has been discovered only 11 light-years away from the Solar System - and it could be inhabitable. Scientists in Chile found the planet orbiting Ross 128, a red dwarf star, which is among the coolest stars in the universe. The planet, known as Ross 128 b, has a surface temperature that may be close to that of Earth, meaning it has the potential to sustain life. It is also expected to become Earth's closest stellar neighbour in just under 80,000 years as Ross 128 moves towards our planet. Pictured: Ross 128 b appears at the centre of this image, which was created from photographs taken over a more than forty-year period (Digitized Sky Survey 2/Davide De Martin) Scientists at the La Silla Observatory in Chile scoured the sky using the European Southern Observatory's large planet-searching telescope for more than a decade in mission to find the new planet. They discovered the star Ross 128, which is orbited by a low mass exoplanet - a planet outside of our solar system that orbits a star. The planet has a temperate climate that makes it ideal for supporting life. Red dwarfs are some of the coolest, faintest and most common stars in the universe. Planets similar to Earth orbiting red dwarfs are easier to find than those orbiting stars like the Sun, so the red stars are increasingly studied by scientists hunting for exoplanets. Many red dwarfs, including our nearest-known star to the Sun, Proximi Centauri, are subject to deadly flares that hit their orbiting planets with ultraviolet and X-ray radiation. But the newly-discovered Ross 128 is less prone to flares, allowing its planets to potentially foster life unharmed. Chart showing the constellation Virgo, which is home to the red dwarf star Ross 128, marked with a red circle, which is orbited by the planet Ross 128 b (ESO, IAU and Sky & Telescope) Data from ESO's High Accuracy Radial velocity Planet Searcher (HARPS) showed that Ross 128 b orbits 20 times closer than the Earth orbits the Sun. However, Ross 128 only receives 1.38 times more irradiation than the Earth. The new planet's temperate is estimated to lie between -60 and 20 degrees. Although it is currently 11 light-years from Earth, Ross 128 is moving towards the Solar System and researchers expect it will become our nearest stellar neighbour in just 79,000 years. Ross 128 will then overtake Proxima, which is around 4.25 light-years from the Sun, as the closest neighbour to Earth. While scientists consider Ross 128 b to be a temperate planet, they remain unsure as to whether liquid water exists on the planet's surface. Water would make the planet habitable. Read more What is the Leonid Meteor Shower? When and how to see it "This discovery is based on more than a decade of HARPS intensive monitoring together with state-of-the-art data reduction and analysis techniques," explained Nicola Astudillo-Defru, from the Geneva Observatory, who co-authored the discovery paper. She added: "Only HARPS has demonstrated such a precision and it remains the best planet hunter of its kind, 15 years after it began operations." The research will appear in the journal Astronomy & Astrophysics.... read more

Greggs forced to apologise after replacing baby Jesus with sausage roll in advent calendar promotion 

Evening Standard logo
Greggs has been forced to apologise for replacing the baby Jesus with a sausage roll in the launch of its advent calendar. The bakers released a promotional image for its festive calendar that showed a sausage roll in a manger surrounded by the Three Wise Men. But it was met with serious backlash online as offended fans accused the budget chain of religious insensitivity and vowed to boycott it. Twitter users said that replacing Jesus, who was Jewish, with a pork product was "inappropriate": Out of interest do you think the people at Greggs understand that Jesus was Jewish and serving up a pork sausage roll in the manger is unbelievably inappropriate? - Beth Rosenberg (@bethvaughan15) November 13, 2017... read more

How to make Mallika Basu's vegan greens dahl 

Evening Standard logo
As the nights close in, this dal steeped in healthy greens is a 20-minute dinner that provides much comfort. Called Saag Wali Dal, the best part of it is the minimal prep required, and its ability to put pretty much any combination of greens to great use. The lentils used here are yellow or moong dal, but you can use red lentils or masoor just as well. Make a giant portion to freeze, take to work the next day or share with friends. Enjoy with steamed rice or scooped into a flatbread of your choice. Ingredients (feeds 6-8) 2 cups yellow lentils/moong 2 tbsp oil 2 tsp cumin seeds 4 cloves garlic, grated 2 inches ginger, grated 2 large tomatoes, diced Half tsp turmeric powder Half tsp chilli powder 2 large handfuls kale, chopped 6 cubes drefrosted frozen spinach or 2 large handfuls fresh, chopped Handful fenugreek leaves or any other greens of your choice Ghee to serve, optional Method Read more How to make Mallika Basu's smoky aubergine mash for World Vegan Day Keep a kettle full of freshly boiled water handy. Wash the lentils in a sieve until the water runs clear underneath. Place in a medium saucepan with four cups cold water and bring to the boil. When it starts boiling cook, skim off any scum or foam that rises to the surface with a wooden spoon and wash down the sink. Cook on a rolling boil for 20 minutes adding hot water from the kettle if it dries out and starts spitting. Meanwhile, in a large saucepan, bring the oil to heat on medium high. When hot, toss in the cumin seeds, the ginger and garlic and as they sizzle, add the tomatoes, turmeric and chilli powder. Mix well for a couple of minutes. Now mix the kale, spinach and fenugreek into the tomato paste for a couple of minutes until the whole lot softens. When the time is up on the dal, you should have a smooth mixture. Pour this gently into the greens and stir through, adding salt to taste to finish. You can dot with ghee before serving if you wish. Mallika Basu is an Indian food writer and columnist.

10 symptoms of mouth cancer you should never ignore 

Evening Standard logo
As part of Mouth Cancer Action Month, today is Blue Wednesday - a day that attempts to raise awareness for the many people in the UK who suffer from mouth cancer . Around 11,500 Brits are diagnosed with mouth cancer or oral cancer each year, and it has just a 19 to 59 per cent survival rate. However, early detection is key as 91 to 93 per cent of all oral cancer cases are preventable. According to the NHS, below are 10 subtle symptoms that you need to look out for. 1. Mouth ulcers Read more Why breast cancer is something men should be aware of too If you have sore mouth ulcers that don't heal within several weeks, this is one of the more prominent signs of mouth cancer. 2. Lumps in your mouth Unexplained and persistent lumps inside the mouth that don't go away. 3. Lumps in your neck Unexplained and persistent lumps in your neck's lymph glands can also be one of the major signs. 4. Difficulty swallowing If it is painful or difficult to swallow. 5. Small changes in your voice or speech pattern If you, or someone close to you notices small, unexplained changes in the tone of your voice or speech pattern, this could signal something is up. 6. Unexplained weight loss Sudden weight loss can be a symptoms of other types of cancer as well, along with diabetes and other health conditions. 7. Bleeding inside your mouth Read more Only one per cent of women know this is a symptom of ovarian cancer If your mouth also feels numb, this is a sign you need to make an appointment with your GP. 8. Loose teeth If a tooth or number of teeth have become loose for an unexplained reason - or if you have a tooth socket that will not heal. 9. Difficulty moving your jaw If your jaw is feeling stiff for no obvious reason, or you are struggling to manoeuvre your mouth to eat, this could be a sign. 10. Sore throat While this is also a symptom of the common cold, a sore throat can signal something more sinister. When should I see a doctor? Make an appointment with your doctor if any of the above symptoms persist for more than two weeks. Your doctor will likely diagnose you with something more common like an infection, but it's always good to check. How can I support Blue Wednesday? You can buy and wear a blue ribbon in support of Blue Wednesday, make sure you wear an item of blue clothing, hold a fundraising event for Mouth Cancer Action Month or simply talk about the signs and symptoms with others to help raise awareness. ]]>... read more

Tony Chambers on the West End's burgeoning design district 

Evening Standard logo
London has no better place for collectible contemporary design than Mayfair. There's the all-singing, all-dancing PAD art fair, which brings design icons and tomorrow's masterpieces to Berkeley Square every October, and regular design sales at the likes of Sotheby's, Phillips and Bonhams. Gallery-wise, European imports such as Carpenters Workshop, Kreo, Patrick Seguin and Achille Salvagni complement British stalwart David Gill (nearby in St James's) and new arrival Gallery Fumi (previously in Hoxton). Other local businesses have been eager to take on design-led collaborations - recent examples include sculpture dealer Daniel Katz showing Thomas Heatherwick's extendable 'Friction Table' on Hill Street, Paul Smith putting on a display of Finn Juhl furniture upholstered in new fabrics at his Albemarle Street store, and art gallery Ordovas pairing Lichtensteins and Warhols with a limited edition of Gufram's Cactus. With so much to shout about, it's only appropriate that design-led establishments would band together to form the Mayfair Design District. This came into being with September's London Design Festival, which saw Mayfair join the likes of Clerkenwell, Shoreditch and Chelsea as a designated hub of activity. The alliance has been growing strong since: an official website offers up a comprehensive list of events, while a diligently maintained Instagram feed showcases at least one thing of interest per day. Beyond drawing footfall into Mayfair, the Design District has a more noble goal. As its initiator, James Malcolm Green, explains: 'We want to break down any perceived barriers between affordable design and limited-edition works, which often, when placed in a gallery environment, can seem daunting.' Thus the inclusion of furniture dealers Christian Liaigre and Holly Hunt, concept store The New Craftsmen, bookshop Maison Assouline and Italian brand Alessi, a key player in democratised design. By mixing price points, Green hopes to raise awareness and appreciation of collectible design beyond aficionados to the wider general public. Mayfair Design District looks set to flourish in the coming months with no shortage of exciting shows, including a solo presentation by French designer Olivier Gagnère at Kreo; vases and vessels curated by Gianluca Longo at David Gill; and a winter group show at Fumi that includes Max Lamb, Glithero and Sam Orlando Miller. And the imminent addition of Dutch gallery Priveekollektie and local newcomer 18 Davies Street will add to Mayfair's appeal and help transform it into an international design destination. (mayfairdesigndistrict.com; @mayfairdesigndistrict) The product While ready-to-wear spectacles are rising in quality, there is still no rival to a made-to-measure pair and in the UK, it's hard to beat the work of Tom Davies. In the 15 years since founding his eponymous eyewear label, Davies has perfected every element of the bespoke experience, from in-store consultation and hi-tech eye testing to hand-production of the frames, each requiring from 16 to 22 hours to make. In a vote of confidence for British craftsmanship, he has also begun to move his production from China to London. (tdtomdavies.com) The person John Pawson is not only a creator of sublime spaces such as the Design Museum, but also a skilled shutterbug. His upcoming book, Spectrum, offers up a journey through his photographic archive, revealing the moments and details that inspire his architectural output. He's also bringing his minimalist aesthetic to this year's Fashion Awards, working with Swarovski on a series of crystal trophies (left) with lacquer cores in varying colours, to be handed out at Royal Albert Hall on 4 December. Broad spectrum: John Pawson (Nick Harvey/REX/Shutterstock) (johnpawson.com) The tech Having established its reputation with the ultra high-end Phantom speaker, French audio outfit Devialet has now set its sights on a larger market, collaborating with Sky on a new Soundbox. The unassuming, all-in-one device features six woofers and three full-range speakers, producing a surround sound effect. The inbuilt volume control system can adjust audio levels to accommodate both quiet dialogue and explosive action, while Bluetooth connectivity means it can be paired with a range of electronics. (sky.com/skysoundbox) The building Opening on 14 November, this cultural destination beneath Bloomberg's newly unveiled European HQ houses the reconstructed remains of the Roman Temple of Mithras, discovered there in 1954. Complementing the archaeological finds, artist Matthew Schreiber has created an installation of haze and light to evoke the atmosphere of the original temple, while the ground-level space will feature a rotating display of contemporary art amid the ruins, beginning with a painted steel sculpture (left) and a 19m tapestry based on the ancient Walbrook River, both by Dublin-based artist Isabel Nolan.

Ben Machell sings the praises of the London's suburbs 

Evening Standard logo
I went to Surbiton for the very first time in my life recently. It was brilliant! One minute you're trying to cross the concourse at Waterloo without having to resort to medieval weaponry, then the next thing you know you're on a train which, in no time at all, drops you off at a place that looks like something from a Ladybird book about pleasingly anonymous dormitory conurbations. I knew I was still in London but it wasn't London London. There was a high street. Old people. Vacant parking spaces. I went to a café and the coffee was unspecific and milky, the kind you get in a care home and just how I like it. I was served an egg-mayonnaise sandwich. On normal bread! I don't think they serve egg-mayonnaise sandwiches inside zones 1-3. They do in Surbiton. I felt at ease. For the first time in months, nobody did a double-take at my anorak. Over the years, I have developed an appreciation for the hinterlands of Greater London. For a long time I was snobby about places that couldn't boast the heady glamour of a Tube stop, but experience has proved me so wrong. I once, for example, spent the weekend with English Civil War re-enactors in Waltham Abbey, just off the M25, and had the time of my life. I can't go to Croydon without feeling a warm pang of familiarity: change people's accents and triple the number of Greggs and it could be any number of mid-sized Northern towns. I've got nothing but good things to say about New Malden ever since I won a laser-tag tournament there. Snigger all you want, but is there laser tag in Dalston? Or Brixton? I don't think so. Ben Machell Where else? I once had to abandon a train near Chertsey. It was dark and wet and we all had to walk down the tracks for what seemed like a mile. When we finally got to the station, a few of the passengers suggested going for a curry while we waited for the replacement bus service. I went along and it was probably the best meal I've ever had. Cheers Chertsey. I adopted my cat from a shelter in Enfield and. speaking of which, have you ever been to the garden centre at Crews Hill? Makes other garden centres look like trash. I could go on. London's great. But Greater London's not bad either. Not bad at all. ]]>... read more

FLASHBULB! Fran Cutler's Halloween Party, a spooky Browns East soirée & a very Dolce fashion show 

Evening Standard logo
So Dolce, Knightsbridge March of the millennials, as Harrods launched its Dolce & Gabbana Christmas extravaganza with a flower-drenched catwalk show of Flashbulb's favourite party people in the food hall. Amber Le Bon, Rafferty Law and Jack Guinness waltzed past lobsters, chocolate truffles and Kylie Minogue, a million selfies were snapped, and everyone descended on Restaurant Ours for a pasta and Pixie Lott-fuelled after-party. Costume drama, Mayfair Tramp was awash with fake blood and Cîroc for Fran Cutler's epic Halloween bash where a bloody Lottie Moss rubbed batwings with Joséphine de la Baume and Skepta came holding a pot plant. We didn't know he was so green-fingered. Boutique bash, Shoreditch Kudos to Mayka Merino who, on a busy Halloween night across town, found time to pop into the Browns East warehouse party dressed as a bloody skeleton. Tattoos were handed out like candy and Professor Green ended up dancing on a car after one too many shots of shamanistic cacao. Scary stuff. ]]>... read more

The War On Drugs review: All highs at Ally Pally 

Evening Standard logo
In an era of instant gratification, the slow-burning pleasures of The War On Drugs provide the perfect antidote. The Philadelphia band, whose latest album A Deeper Understanding reached number three in the UK charts, specialise in sprawling, widescreen rock that nods to Dylan, Springsteen and Dire Straits. If their penchant for seven-minute songs makes them a hard sell for the radio, it makes them a thrilling live act. The 10,000-capacity Ally Pally was packed with a crowd with a male/female ratio roughly equivalent to that of an engineering class, all eager to see Adam Granduciel and his hirsute bandmates serve up their long-form pleasures. Sounding good in this cavernous space is a challenge for the best of bands, but The War On Drugs made it look easy. It helps that their songs are epic both in length and ambition. Pain, with its galloping beats and refrain of "I'm in love; I'm in pain", echoed Arcade Fire, while Granduciel decorated the majority of the songs with his expansive Mark Knopfler-style guitar solos. Read more The best gigs in London - what's on and what to book That it never felt self-indulgent speaks volumes about the quality of the songwriting. These are finely crafted numbers, tastefully arranged and precisely performed. An Ocean In Between The Waves was a narrative ballad from the Dylan school of songwriting, Thinking Of A Place a Springsteenian widescreen rocker. There were no pyrotechnics, no great light show. The War On Drugs don't need them: they have great songs. Sometimes, that's all you need.... read more
