Stratford author publishes seventh book, 24 Booke Street, in Joel Franklin Mystery series

Stratford author Ron Finch has released the seventh book in his Joel Franklin Mystery series — 24 Booke Street.

Article content

With a total of 32 books in his ongoing Joel Franklin Mystery series either published or in progress, Stratford author Ron Finch has been keeping busy during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Article content

Last week, Finch announced the release of his seventh book in the series, 24 Booke Street. The story picks up in 1937 and once again finds the titular police detective with a bent for communicating with the paranormal investigating a crime in Chaseford – a fictionalized version of Stratford – that is somehow connected to the spirit world.

This time, the home of one of Chaseford’s most prominent families has burned to the ground, and Franklin believes Evan Donnelly, an unscrupulous moneylender involved in many of the town’s problems, may have been responsible. With nothing but rumours to guide him, Franklin uses his gift to communicate with Sadie Morgan, a local woman who died under mysterious circumstances roughly 12 years prior, to unravel a shadowy history that could shed light on the mystery at hand.

“Several months before (I began writing this book), my son phoned me up and said, ‘Hey dad, we found a (19th-century) gravestone in our backyard.’ They live in another small town in Perth County … in a small house that’s been there for a while. The other peculiar thing about it is when they bought that house there was a picture on the wall of an old woman … and he told me, ‘When we’re in there, I think she’s watching us,’ ” Finch said.

Wondering who that woman was and whether she was somehow connected to the gravestone in his son’s backyard, Finch came up with the character of Sadie Morgan, the long-dead, previous owner of 24 Booke St. – the house the prominent family moves into after their house burns down at the beginning of the book.

Article content

At this point in the series, Finch said Franklin has gained some renown for his ability to solve complex and high-profile crimes with seemingly little evidence. Of course, Franklin isn’t solving these mysteries alone – he has the help of Chaseford’s spirit population – but he can’t divulge his paranormal-investigative methods without risking both his personal and professional reputations.

Through extensive research into local history and by adding small details in his books that lead to future mysteries in Franklin’s continuing adventures, Finch said his recurring characters and the world he’s built in and around Chaseford keep evolving organically, leading to the development of more and more Joel Franklin Mysteries.

While each story is distinct, Finch said the message he wants his readers to take away stays the same: “Don’t believe everything you think.”

“Do you know how many problems are caused when you don’t double-check things before you come to hard, fast conclusions?” Finch said. “These guys that burned down that house, they believed that they were at the right place. They believed the people living there were evil, and that’s why they set the fire. But they were at the wrong place because they didn’t look past what they thought they knew.”

Electronic and paperback versions of 24 Booke Street can be purchased at www.amazon.ca/24-Booke-Street-Ron-Finch/.

UFO BOMBSHELL: US to release landmark report – military pilots to lift lid on mystery

She said: “We take reports of incursions into our airspace – by any aircraft, identified or unidentified – very seriously, and investigate each one.”

On Wednesday last week, several members of Congress were given a confidential briefing on the anticipated report.

Experts have been speculating the reports’ contents for over a month but have warned elements of the document may remain classified for security and counterintelligence reasons.

In April, footage of UAPs and UFOs taken by US Navy Pilots was declassified by the Pentagon.

Speaking to Reuters this week, Alex Dietrich, a retired U.S. Navy Lieutenant Commander, urged the public to keep an open mind about the topic and to report what they see even if they don’t fully understand it.

The fighter pilot was among several aviators from the aircraft carrier USS Nimitz involved in a 2004 encounter off California’s coast with unknown aircraft described as resembling large “Tic Tac” breath mints.

She said the phenomena she saw lacked “any visible flight control surfaces or means of propulsion.”

Ms Dietrich said her higher ups took the event seriously as her account of the incident was “analyzed in a professional, sober way” by the military chain of command.

To help eliminate the stigma surrounding the mysterious phenomena she urged the public to “speak up, even if they don’t know what they saw.”

“I’m trying to normalize it by talking about it,” she said, adding: “I hope I’m not the ‘UFO, Tic Tac person’ for the rest of my life.”

Earlier this month, Democratic Congressman Sean Patrick Maloney, told the New York Post: “We take the issue of unexplained aerial phenomena seriously to the extent that we’re dealing with the safety and security of US military personnel or the national security interests of the United States, so we want to know what we’re dealing with.

“I think it’s important to understand that there are legitimate questions involving the safety and security of our personnel, and in our operations and in our sensitive activities, and we all know that there’s [a] proliferation of technologies out there.

Mystery nuclear 'leak' from Chinese power plant could spark 'disaster' – US raises alarm

According to secret US intelligence reports, the Taishan Nuclear Power Plant is believed to have been leaking for at least two weeks. American agents have spent the last week monitoring the situation after a French firm, that co-owns the plant, flagged the issue to Washington.

The reports warned the situation has the potential to turn into a major disaster but it is not yet at “crisis level”.

However, the Chinese owners of the plant insisted in a report – published yesterday – that everything is “normal”.

Problems at the plant were first alerted to the US intelligence back in May by French firm Framatome, according to documents sent to the Department of Energy (DoE).

On June 3, a follow-up memo identified the issue as a “fission gas leak” and urged the DoE to share intelligence that might help solve the issue.

After reportedly receiving no response, Framatome sent another memo on June 8 asking for their message to be reviewed.

They described the problem as an “imminent radiological threat to the site”.

Framatome warned Chinese regulators increased the “safe” levels of radioactivity allowed around the plant.

This means China has been able to continue to keep the plant running instead of shutting it down in a bid to resolve the issue.

Framatome confirmed today they are working to fix a “performance issue” at the site.

The French energy company EDF also released a statement saying there has been an increase in noble gases detected in the plant’s cooling system.

Noble gases are some of the byproducts of nuclear fission and may indicate there is a leak in the reactor.

EDF confirmed the presence of noble gases is “a known phenomenon, studied and provided for in the reactor operating procedures”.

The Taishan plant was opened in 2018 and was the first worldwide to operate a next-generation EPR nuclear reactor.

EPR reactors are believed to be promising advances in safety and efficiency over conventional reactors while producing less waste.

Overall, China has 47 nuclear plants with a total generation capacity of 48.75 million kilowatts, making it the third-highest country after the US and France.

Xi Jinping’s country has invested billions of dollars to develop its nuclear energy sector.

In May, Mr Jinping and Russian President Vladimir Putin praised the close ties between their countries as they launched new Russian-built nuclear power plants across China.

Google Maps Street View: 1970 Crashed plane mystery

Google Maps Street View is a tool used to help people navigate their way and discover locations around the world. However, and thanks to 3D cameras, many use it to uncover rare moments that happen across the globe.

Recently, one user made an unexpected discovery: a plane crash.

He was so shocked by his finding that he decided to share a picture on a Reddit forum.

He wrote: “A crashed airplane on Big Diomede Island, between Alaska and Russia,” and he shared the exact location.

In the image, you can see what seems like a big plane in the middle of a deserted field.

Some snow can be spotted in the photo too, as the user found this while navigating across cold Alaska and northern Russia territory.

The plane seems to be intact, or at least, without severe damage.

Some users were shocked by the discovery and seemed very interested to find out what exact plane it was.

“Neat! Do we know what plane it is specifically?” one viewer said.

“I’m guessing it’s a Douglas C-47 Skytrain,” another answered.

Luckily, a third person unveiled the mystery: “Good guess but digging I found that actually it’s a Russian plane that crashed in 1970.”

Another agreed: “Yeah, the LI-2 is a Russian built C-47.

“Between 5000-6200 were built.

“I’ve read that some were fitted with small stoves for internal heating during flights and on ground!”

The exact location of this particular finding is the remote Big Diomede Island, in Rusia, which is located in the border between Russia and the United States.

The island has a current population of 0, meaning that there are no permanent inhabitants living there.

One of the only significant events that have taken place in Big Diomede Island is actually the Lisunov Li-2 crash.

Although there are no airfields on the island, some flights were carried out in order to transport supplies back in the 70s.

On June 13, a Lisunov Li-2 belonging to the Soviet Border Troops crashed in the centre of the island.

All crew members were injured and the green hull remains are still visible.

Why the plane is still there and hasn’t been removed is still a mystery.

Review: Famicom Detective Club: The Missing Heir – A Delightful And Silly Mystery

Famicom Detective Club is brilliant. Famicom Detective Club is also incredibly stupid, sometimes. But it’s still brilliant. It’s both, at the same time, like a child who’s just argued that, if glue is non-toxic, then there’s really nothing wrong with them eating a whole cup of it. Sure, sticky child! You’re technically right, congratulations! But you’ve also just eaten an entire cup of glue, and now your bowel resembles a kindergarten art project.

Famicom Detective Club comes in two parts: The Missing Heir, which first came out in 1988 in Japan, making it almost as old as Mario; and The Girl Who Stands Behind, a sequel which followed in 1989. The two games have never been released in English, other than unofficial fan translations, until now — and the remake, with new art, localisation and voice-acting (only available in Japanese) was a surprise that nobody expected.

Sadly, because nobody expected these games, other than die-hard fans, their reveal on the Nintendo Direct earlier this year flew largely under the radar. Many viewers — this reviewer included — had little idea of the provenance and importance of these two games, and they just looked a bit like another detective game cribbing from Ace Attorney. But, of course, they’re much older, and set up a lot of the tropes that Ace Attorney used over a decade later.

Famicom Detective Club — both parts — are about a young man whose name you choose at the beginning (ours was called “Badguy Murderman” because we are very immature). In The Missing Heir, he’s investigating a suspicious death as part of the Utsugi Detective Agency, despite only being 17 years old, and soon he gets caught up in much more than he bargained for.

The story itself is as you might expect from a Japanese murder-mystery: a dash of the supernatural, a rumoured curse, a question of inheritance, and a whole bunch of familial drama that will slowly ooze out like blood under a bandage. We won’t say too much here, because it’s much more fun to go in blind, but it’s a good story, well told, even if the idea of a 17-year-old detective and his high school sidekick is a little… suspect.

You’ll spend a lot of The Missing Heir alone, although each day will end with you and Ayumi Tachibana — the aforementioned sidekick — recapping the day and speculating on what it all means. Having played both games, it’s a little disappointing that Ayumi gets sidelined in The Missing Heir because she plays much more of a vital role in The Girl Who Stands Behind, but most of The Missing Heir is focusing on the protagonist’s own story, anyway.

Like Ace Attorney’s investigation sections, your time will be spent walking from location to location, looking at items, and mostly talking to people, like Zenzou, the butler of the mysterious wealthy family at the heart of the case, or one of the skittish, miserable family members who want nothing to do with you. But, this being a mystery, there’s an extra twist: you also have amnesia, because of course you do.

Famicom Detective Club shares a lot of DNA with the Ace Attorney series, despite being its predecessor by 13 years, and part of that shared DNA includes the frustration at not knowing what you’re supposed to do. Like other old-school text-based games, The Missing Heir is annoyingly hard at times, not because you haven’t figured out what to do, but because you know what you’re supposed to do, but can’t work out what arcane series of actions the game requires of you in order to do it.

One scene involves yelling the name of a character who isn’t in the scene several times, in order to scare the man you’re talking to into telling you a secret. Another scene might need you to ask someone a question multiple times, getting no answer each time, and eventually that character will say, “wow, you really care about this subject, don’t you? Alright, I’ll tell you.” One particularly annoying solution is to look at an item in the background, which will spur a character into a line of dialogue that has very little to do with the thing you’re looking at.

There’s an informal name for this phenomenon in old games: “cat hair moustache puzzles“, after the infamously ridiculous puzzle in Gabriel Knight 3 that required players to combine cat hair with maple syrup in order to impersonate a man that didn’t even have a moustache. Granted, The Missing Heir is not quite that nonsensical, but there’s definitely still a lot of “how the hell was I supposed to know that?”

But it almost doesn’t matter. The visual upgrades made to the game are above and beyond what you would expect from an under-the-radar remake of a 30-year-old Japanese title. The animation technology used to make characters move and speak is reminiscent of how TV show Archer does it — a lot is achieved with a little, and characters will tilt their heads, smile, and toss their hair with convincing personality. Be warned, though, that the images of dead bodies that pop up from time to time are pretty spooky, with realistic and occasionally gory detail, far beyond the rather gentle corpses you get in Ace Attorney.

A few other quality-of-life improvements include the ability to check the text log (by pressing X) if you need a reminder of pretty much anything you’ve been told — you can play the voice line, too — and, when you restart the game, you can choose to read a short recap of what’s happened so far. There’s also the notebook, reminiscent of Ace Attorney’s Court Record, which contains all the facts and rumours you’ve heard about people, plus their ages, names, and photos (if you know what they look like), and holding down the left bumper will fast-forward through text you’ve already read (if you turn the option on). As a neat little bonus, you can even change the soundtrack to the original Famicom bleeps and bloops — although the modern orchestral version is much nicer.

So, yes, You will spend a lot of The Missing Heir cursing at the game for being so bloody obtuse (although we have an upcoming guide that’ll help with that!) but you’ll also spend a lot of it hooked on the unfolding mysteries and getting to know the various personalities in the game. Once you’ve figured out how the game wants you to play — by repeating yourself, a lot — it’ll get a little easier, at least, and you’ll be able to really enjoy a ripping good murder-mystery.

Conclusion

The Famicom Detective Club remakes are living history, and a chance to catch up on what you missed out on, either by being too young, or not being able to speak Japanese. Though The Missing Heir has its faults, those faults are largely down to “that’s just how games used to be”, and it’s held up remarkably well all the same.

Mystery singer who inspired Elvis identified after 65 years 'Why can't I sing like that?'

They decided to abandon that track and allowed Elvis to riff on some other ideas with far greater success. In July 1954, the single That’s Alright Mama was released and The King was on the way to claiming his crown.

The story around Without You grew over the years and achieved mythical status for it’s clear influence on the way Elvis sounded, but nobody could identify the singer until recently.

In the 1975 book Mystery Train, Greil Marcus said of the Without You demo: “Most of all, anyone who listens hears Elvis… The unnamed singer’s voice is full of pain and full of acceptance; gliding along the stately lines of the song, reaching for solace, falling short, reaching again.”

It was music producer Chris Kennedy who finally made the stunning discovery it was Nashville singer Jimmy Sweeney, who died in 1992.

Kennedy contacted his daughter Eugenia to make the emotional revelation. She confirmed it was her father’s voice and revealed what it would have meant to him.

Ashanti Fans Go Wild After She Posts Cute Pic With Hunky Mystery Man In Mexico

Author Jade Boren
This post originally appeared on Hollywood Life

Ashanti wrote that she was having ‘great times’ amid her Mexico getaway, underneath a photo with a mystery man! Even Flo Rida, whom Ashanti just recently sparked dating speculation with, commented.

Who’s this? That’s what fans wanted to know after Ashanti posted a photo with a mystery man amid her vacation in Mexico. Adding to the mystery was the fact that the 40-year-old singer tagged just about everyone…the brand of the white mesh dress she was wearing (PatBO), her stylist (Alicia Sereno), and even the name of the restaurant she took the picture at (Taboo Cancún). However, there was no tag over the unidentified hunk, who was dressed up in a blazer and dress pants as he cozied up next to Ashanti.

“Great times,” Ashanti cryptically captioned the photo. The mystery led to a freakout in the comments section. Many fans assumed Ashanti had a “new man,” and showered the hypothetical couple with love in the form of emojis. Others just wanted to know who the mystery man was. And then there were some fans who insisted the man was not Ashanti’s boyfriend at all.

Ashanti’s fans assumed the man she posted a photo with was her new beau, as you can see above. [Instagram]

“I’m screaming!!!! That Ashanti pic is the manager of the place they are at,” one fan claimed. Well, whoever the mystery man was, Ashanti was definitely not on a date night: she proceeded to share photos with her vacation crew (which you can see below) and wrote, “When you love this hard it’s worth celebrating.”

Even Flo Rida chimed in under the photo that caused a stir online! The 41-year-old rapper left a trail of praise hand emojis, after JUST sparking romance speculation with Ashanti because they were seen vacationing and yachting together in Cancún earlier in April. However, Ashanti shut down the rumors by responding to a speculative Instagram post on @theshaderoom; she wrote, “Flo is my brother! We’re family! Celebrating my sis @liltuneshi [Kenashia Douglas‘] bday!!! Happy Birthday Bink!”

Man or no man, Ashanti is looking amazing amid her vacation. She was seen rocking a green bikini with zebra stripes amid a beach day in Tulum as she celebrated her sister’s 32nd birthday.

Archaeologists Solve a Decades-Old Harriet Tubman Mystery

For at least two decades, historians had been searching for the site of the cabin in which Harriet Tubman lived with her family as a young adult.

“Land records told us it was here somewhere,” said Julie M. Schablitsky, the chief archaeologist at the Maryland Department of Transportation State Highway Administration, who led an excavation of the swampy terrain on Maryland’s Eastern Shore beginning last fall. “We couldn’t understand why we weren’t finding anything. It was like, ‘Where is this place?’”

Then, on a whim, Schablitsky swept a metal detector along the side of an abandoned road, closer to the river. And she found a coin from 1808 — the same year that Tubman’s parents, Ben Ross and Harriet Green, known as Rit, were married. And, not far away, she found ceramic shards that dated to the 1820s to 1840s.

It was then that she knew: She had located the cabin of Benjamin Ross, the father of Harriet Tubman, the Underground Railroad conductor. She had lived there roughly between the ages of 17 and 22, from 1839 to 1844.

“We could tell from the glaze that the time period coincided perfectly with the Ross cabin,” she said of the ceramic pieces. “I was like, ‘OK, this has to be it.’”

Her discovery made waves among historians when it was announced by state and federal officials at a news conference at the Harriet Tubman Underground Railroad Visitor Center in Church Creek, Md., on Tuesday morning.

“This gives us insight into a time and place in Tubman’s life we know very little about,” Kate Clifford Larson, a Tubman biographer, said in an interview on Tuesday. “The community really created this woman, and we can’t fully understand her until we understand the place she came out of.”

Tubman’s father was granted 10 acres of land when he was manumitted, or freed from slavery, around five years after his former owner Anthony Thompson’s death in 1836. He then bought his enslaved wife and sheltered Tubman and her siblings in the cabin, in what is now the federal Blackwater National Wildlife Refuge.

The site had been privately owned for years, which precluded archaeological excavation, Schablitsky said. But then the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service bought the 2,600-acre parcel last year to replace refuge areas lost to rising sea levels, and the refuge manager, Marcia Pradines, heard that the lost cabin might, in fact, have sat on the land — and called Schablitsky.

After an initial delay because of the pandemic, and more than 1,000 test pits that turned up nothing but handfuls of goopy mud last fall, Schablitsky and her team returned to the site this spring — and made the discovery last month.

“We knew it was out there,” she said. “We just had to find it.”

Larson said the skills the young Tubman learned from her father, who felled and sold timber and was himself an operative on the Underground Railroad, laid the foundation for her success in following in his footsteps.

“Her father taught her things like how to make your way through streams, rivers and marshes,” Larson said. “And how to navigate that landscape without getting trapped.”

Tubman also interacted with free Black mariners who transported the timber to Baltimore shipyards, Larson said — and the knowledge they passed along may have aided her in leading people to freedom on the Underground Railroad.

“She knew a lot of those African-American mariners, who were called Black jacks,” Larson said. “They taught her how to read the stars and told her about other places beyond the Eastern Shore where it was and wasn’t safe to go.”

Tubman made 13 trips into the South over a 10-year period, helping to escort approximately 70 enslaved people to freedom.

“Since I started researching her back in the ’90s, she’s become more and more interesting to people,” Larson said.

“With very few resources, she was able to do amazing things,” she added.

Once the site is ready for visitors, Pradines said, it will be added to the Harriet Tubman Underground Railroad Byway, a 125-mile drive that includes more than 30 sites related to Tubman’s life and legacy. The Wildlife Service also hopes to develop a trail system around it where people can hike and bird, she said, which would be within three to five years.

In the meantime, Schablitsky said, plans were underway for further excavation this summer.

“We hope to find artifacts that will tell us more about the personal life of Ben Ross,” Schablitsky said. “Personal objects, like a tobacco pipe, that will help us recreate what his life would have been like and that will help us find out more about who he was.”

‘Deadly Illusions’ Star Greer Grammer Weighs In On The Epic Ending Mystery & The Sequel

‘Deadly Illusions’ is Netflix’s newest hit film. HL spoke EXCLUSIVELY with Greer Grammer about that twisty ending. Is it Grace or Mary walking out of the hospital?!

Deadly Illusions didn’t just wrap things up in a neat little bow at the end of the film. The final moments of the Netflix movie left fans with even more questions. Was that Grace, Mary, or someone else walking out of the hospital? When Mary walked in, you could clearly see her face. The woman walking out has her hair covered with a scarf and sunglasses on. HollywoodLife chatted EXCLUSIVELY with Greer Grammer[1] about what the ending really means.

“I think the main thing is you don’t know who’s walking out,” Greer told HollywoodLife in one of our latest editions of TVTalk. “You assume that it’s Mary, but you also think that it could be Grace. You don’t know. At least, that’s how I took it. It’s the same outfit, the same glasses and scarf that we were seeing when Elaine was killed, so we don’t fully know who does what and who’s leaving. People have their own theories.”

Even though she’s the star of the movie, Greer has no idea who is walking out at the end. “I have no answers on the end of the movie. Everyone has been sliding in my DMs and asking me about [it]. They’re like, ‘Who was it?!’ And I’m like, ‘I don’t know! That’s the whole point!’ It’s been fun to see the reactions,” Greer said.

The movie, which premiered on Netflix on March 18, centers around a bestselling novelist (Kristin Davis[2]) who is suffering from writer’s block. She hires a young woman, played by Grammer, to watch over her twin children. As the movie goes on, the line between the life she’s writing about and the one she’s actually living becomes blurred.

The ending obviously leaves things wide open for a Deadly Illusions sequel. Greer noted that Anna Elizabeth James, the writer and director of the film, is “working on a treatment for a sequel, and we’ve been discussing it. We weren’t sure originally, but she is working on a treatment for a sequel. I’m so excited to see it.”

Greer admitted that she would like to see Grace out of the hospital one day. “Grace is such a good person, and she’s been through so much… She is so sweet and wants the best, so I would love to see her out and healthy and living.”

In the film, Greer got to work alongside Dermot Mulroney and Kristin. As a fan of Sex and the City[3] and “all of the rom-coms” that Dermot has been in, Greer told HollywoodLife that meeting them was “nerve-wracking and crazy and then to work with them in the way that I was working with them, I think it was an out of body experience.”
