Abstract


In recent years there is a rapid advance in understanding the


 


 




conditions that lead to launching of astronomical jets and their


 


 




internal properties. This is expected to be further enhanced with the


 


 




recent operation of the event horizon telescope (EHT), that is


 


 




expected to publish its first results in 2018. In this talk, I will


 


 




describe a serious of works we conducted recently aimed at testing the


 


 




observational signatures that discriminates between emission from jets


 


 




and accretion disks, test the jet power-black hole spin relation, jet


 


 




filling factor, and explain the rapid variability seen in blazars as


 


 




due of turbulence in the inner jet region.
