Welcome to the world of reboots. This trend of resurrection is not exclusive to film and TV either as the automotive industry is notorious for doing the same thing. The Acura NSX, Chevrolet Camaro, Dodge Challenger, Ford GT, Jeep Cherokee, Mini Cooper, Nissan Z, and Volkswagen Beetle all disappeared for a bit, came back, and are still on sale. Well, maybe not the Beetle, which Volkswagen recently announced will have 2019 “Final Edition” farewell models before disappearing forever. Again.

If you take a stroll along the western end of Hackney Road in east London - and keep going as far as number 211, you wander past a ghost. It is not entirely unlikely that you might find yourself here, heading away from the cool bars that line Shoreditch High Street where these two arterial routes meet - or, perhaps, ambling towards the new restaurants which, for the last five years, have been opening on this busy thoroughfare, closer and closer to Hackney proper. Equally, it is very likely that you may fail to spot the phantom on the kerb - as there is no evidence of it beyond the developers' wooden boards fencing off the site, and the first signs of the new development rising up behind. But if you feel a tinge of sadness on the air, it is because number 211 was once home to the Odeon Hackney Road - and, as of April 2018, it is not. What was once a colossal, palatial cinema with 1,926 seats will soon be ten-storey block of luxury flats. The demolition was not without controversy - … [Read more...] about Glorious ghosts of yesteryear – in search of London’s ‘lost’ Art Deco cinemas

By Jeff B. Flinn, Staff writer Published 12:00 am CST, Tuesday, December 18, 2018 Kirby city officials have responded to social media posts blasting their police department and a towing company after a nonprofit organization’s supply trailer was reported missing and ended up in a tow yard. On Dec. 5, the rescue organization Hand-Me-Down Hounds reported on Facebook that its trailer had been stolen from inside the Kirby-Bexar Animal Facility on Duffek Drive, behind the Kirby Fire Department. In a local television broadcast, organizers for Hand-Me-Down reported dozens of portable kennels had been stolen with the trailer, hindering an upcoming animal transfer. Subsequent social media posts blasted the towing company and the city of Kirby police for their responses to the incident.
