Atlantis Rises Book
Chapter one: Baby on the doorstep.
It was one of those cold and dark winter nights of England when someone knocks on Dr. Peterson's door. He and his wife were deep asleep in their warm bed when he hears the knock. He wakes up and heads for the door. His wife wakes up as she felt him leave the bed.
Kate: "What is it, Honey?"
Daniel: "I heard someone knocking on the door; I'm going to see who it is."
Kate: "It's half past midnight, I wonder who that can be."
Daniel: "I'll go see."
Daniel goes, opens the door and freezes in his tracks out of terror. His wife follows him a couple of minutes later and freezes in her tracks also. What they saw was a very bright light in front of their house this light moved upwards to the skies and launched swiftly with the speed of light to somewhere very far. Kate and Daniel were so stupefied and they stood there in front of their house gazing at the empty cold night sky until they were snapped back to reality by a little baby's cry.
They looked down at the doorstep where they found a little baby wrapped in a blue blanket. Daniel picked him up and found some sort of plastic thing underneath the baby. He handed the baby to his wife and picked it up. It was a triangular shaped thing. He examined it carefully but found nothing. He, his wife, and the baby entered to the house and didn't say a word until half an hour later.
Daniel: "Am I dreaming?"
Kate: "I don't think so."
Daniel: "I am so confused."
Kate: "Me too."
Daniel: "I wonder what that thing is."
Kate: "Let me see it."
She puts the baby between them on the couch and Daniel stretched his hand to give her that thing. As soon as it got over the baby it floated in midair and shone brightly. Then, some sort of hologram appeared over it. In the hologram, a man and a woman who looked human were standing side by side. The woman spoke first and the man followed her later.
Woman: "Hello. We are Atlanteans and we are from Atlantis. We had a long journey to come here. We need your help as much as you need ours."
Man: "We hope that you could take care of our baby and you will be greatly rewarded later but tell no one about this or about us. This baby is a boy of light and he is in grave danger. We will explain later."
Woman: "We will be back to take him when the time comes but we left you the liberty to give him an Earth name. Thank you in advance and take care of our son. End transmission."
Kate: "We have no children yet. What a great time for a child."
Daniel: "What shall we call him?"
Kate: "I always liked the name Shawn. How about it?"
Daniel: "Then Shawn it is."
Daniel and Kate loved Shawn from the first look but they were still confused about what had happened that night. They decided not to tell Shawn anything about it until the right time. Since then, Daniel switched his interest from physics (he was a doctor in physics) to the study of UFOs, aliens, and the lost continent of Atlantis.
As soon as Daniel started his new study, he stumbled across some information about the Bermuda triangle and it's relation with Atlantis since they both had a common geographical area. Also, he noticed that many UFO appearances have occurred over this area. He also found some information concerning a psychic called Edgar Cayce who talked about Atlantis and it's relation with the Bermuda triangle. He said that machines from Atlantis are causing the disappearances. Cayce blamed the destruction of Atlantis on some sort of death ray misused by the Atlanteans. Daniel also noticed that it's been a long time since any disappearances have occurred.

In what has become an annual rite under the Trump administration, the president's fiscal year 2020 budget proposal calls for the elimination of the National Endowment for the Arts. Trump's initial budgets for both fiscal 2018 and 2019 also called for cutting the NEA, but each time the House restored funds for the organization and last year gave the NEA a $3 million increase.
According to researchers, the English language might never have enjoyed a richness of F-words had it not been for early farmers and the food processing they favored. Dairy products and other soft foods, such as gruel, porridge, soup and stews, helped shape our faces, the researchers claim, and allowed us to form the sounds "f" and "v", known as labiodental fricatives...
After skipping 2018's announcement due to scandal, the Nobel Foundation has announced that the Nobel Prize in Literature will be awarded in 2019 - and that Laureates will be announced for both 2018 and 2019.
According to the press release: "During the past year, the Nobel Foundation has had a close dialogue with the Swedish Academy about the problems that arose in late 2017 and early 2018. Several important changes have been implemented since then. The Academy's regulations have been amended, making it possible for members to resign. The statutes have been clarified. Several new members have been elected. The Academy also no longer includes any members who are subject to conflict of interest or criminal investigations."
The longlist for The Women's Prize for Fiction 2019 have been announced. The winner will be declared in June.

Across America, small theaters are canceling productions of Harper Lee's "To Kill a Mockingbird," citing a threat of litigation from a powerful, sharp-elbowed Broadway producer related to a contract that dates back half a century.
The theaters were planning to stage an adaptation of the novel by the playwright Christopher Sergel, which has been widely staged by adults and students for decades. Lawyers for the producer Scott Rudin, backed by the Lee estate, are telling the theaters that their productions are no longer permissible because there is a new adaptation, by the screenwriter Aaron Sorkin, which opened on Broadway in December...
The Guardian has a fun article on Susan Rennie's book, Roald Dahl's Rotsome and Repulsant Words, which is worth a read for all Dahl fans, and particularly lovers of his 1982 classic, The BFG:
If a small child were to walk up to the lexicographer Susan Rennie in the street and call her a slopgroggled grobsquiffler, she would know exactly how to reply. "You squinky squiddler!" she would shout. "You piffling little swishfiggler! You troggy little twit! Don't you dare talk pigsquiffle to me, you prunty old pogswizzler!" ...

Prolific author William E. Butterworth III, who wrote under the name W.E.B. Griffin, has died aged 89.
The writer Andrea Levy, who explored the experience of Jamaican British people in a series of novels over 20 years has died, aged 62, from cancer.
After starting to write as a hobby in her early 30s, Levy published three novels in the 1990s that brought her positive reviews and steady sales. But her fourth novel, Small Island, launched her into the literary big league, winning the 2004 Orange prize, the Whitbread book of the year and the Commonwealth Writers' prize, selling more than 1m copies around the world and inspiring a 2009 BBC adaptation.
