n 2006, the International Astronomical Union (IAU) downgraded Pluto’s status to “dwarf planet.”The IAU defines a planet as a celestial body that “has cleared the neighborhood around its orbit,” which means that it must be the largest gravitational force in its orbit.
However, Neptune’s gravity influences its neighbor Pluto. The dwarf planet also shares its orbit with frozen gases and objects in the Kuiper belt, researchers note.
In a paper published in the journal Icarus, Philip Metzger, a planetary scientist at the University of Central Florida, argues that the reason Pluto lost its planet status is not valid.

(BPDnews.com) – At about 4:41 PM on Sunday September 9, 2018, officers assigned to District A-1 responded to a call for an attempted kidnapping in the area of North Street and Congress Street near Faneuil Hall in Downtown Boston. While on approach to the call, the officers were informed that a male suspect, later identified as Alfred Patterson, 20, of Raymond, New Hampshire, had approached a 13-year-old girl and offered her parents cash to ‘buy’ their daughter. The suspect then grabbed the young girl by her arm and attempted to drag her away. The child’s father intervened and the suspect fled on foot. Officers quickly located the suspect in the area of 260 Washington Street and placed him in custody without incident after he was positively identified by the victim and her parents. During the booking process, the suspect initially provided officers with the name Max Roads Patterson and an accompanying social security number but officers were later informed by the Boston Police Identification Unit that the true identity of the suspect was Alfred Patterson. The suspect will appear in Boston Municipal Court on charges of Enticement of a Child Under 16, Attempted Kidnapping of a Child and Providing a False Name to Law Enforcement.
