The appearance of active galactic nuclei (AGN) depends so strongly on orientation that our current classification schemes are dominated by random pointing directions instead of more interesting physical properties. Light from the centers of many AGN is obscrued by optically thick circumstellar matter, particularly at optical and ultraviolet wavelengths. In radio-loud AGN, bipolar jets emanating from the nucleus emit radio through gamma-ray light that is relativistically beamed along the jet… 
Fermi-LAT γ-ray anisotropy and intensity explained by unresolved Radio-Loud Active Galactic Nuclei
Radio-loud active galactic nuclei (AGN) are expected to contribute substantially to both the intensity and anisotropy of the isotropic γ-ray background (IGRB). In turn, the measured properties of the

Radio Loud AGN Unification: Connecting Jets and Accretion
While only a fraction of Active Galactic Nuclei are observed to host a powerful relativistic jet, a cohesive picture is emerging that radio-loud AGN may represent an important phase in the evolution
Unified Schemes for Extragalactic Radio Sources
The most widely discussed class of unified schemes for radio-loud extra-galactic sources attempts to interpret their seemingly disparate types as the same objects seen from different directions. The
Radio-loud active galactic nuclei at high redshifts and the cosmic microwave background
The interaction between the emitting electrons and the Cosmic Microwave Background (CMB) affects the observable properties of radio‐loud Active Galactic Nuclei (AGN) at early epochs. At high
Hot Dust in Radio-loud Active Galactic Nuclei
We have measured mid-infrared (MIR) fluxes of 3C sources on images taken with ISOCAM on board the Infrared Space Observatory (ISO). The photometric data were combined with existing photometry at
An X-Ray Spectral Survey of Radio-loud Active Galactic Nuclei with ASCA
We present a uniform and systematic analysis of the 0.6-10 keV X-ray spectra of radio-loud active galactic nuclei (AGNs) observed by ASCA. The sample, which is not statistically complete, includes 10
Determining the radio active galactic nuclei contribution to the radio–far-infrared correlation using the black hole Fundamental Plane relation
We investigate the 1.4 GHz radio properties of 92 nearby (z<0.05) ultra hard X-ray selected Active Galactic Nuclei (AGN) from the Swift Burst Alert Telescope (BAT) sample. Through the ultra hard
Radio loudness along the quasar main sequence
Context. When can an active galactic nucleus (AGN) be considered radio loud (RL)? Following the established view of the AGNs inner workings, an AGN is RL if associated with relativistic ejections
On Black Hole Masses and Radio Loudness in Active Galactic Nuclei
The distribution of radio to optical fluxes in active galactic nuclei (AGNs) is bimodal. The physical origin for this bimodality is not understood. In this Letter I describe observational evidence,


Jets in Extragalactic Radio Sources
Current data indicate that the large-scale jet structures are not moving with relativistic speeds, as previously proposed, and slow-moving jets, which possess turbulent interiors and are dominated by relatively cool gas, can account for the observed jet properties at optical and radio wavelengths.
