How do black holes give rise to quasars?

Black holes light up the Universe by creating quasars, which can in turn affect how galaxies evolve.

There is a lot of lack of understanding about magnetic field lines and whether they would be stopped from establishing from an extremely rapidly rotating star whose surface represents an event horizon.
The Quasar polar jets are in large part magnetically powered. Whether this extreme magnetism is from the extremely rotating black hole or totally the product of the also rapidly rotating accretion disk, is not certain. Coupled with the extreme frame dragged rotating spacetime, it is the perfect propulsion system for any black hole. The extreme radiation environment is keeping everything in the vicinity highly ionised and the humongous rotating magnetic fields feed the electrons to one polar jet and the protons to the other. About a 2000 to 1 mass difference. The more material available the more acceleration is achieved by the Black Hole and everything in it's influence.
