(AP) — Three handwritten wills have been found in the suburban Detroit home of Aretha Franklin, months after the death of the “Queen of Soul,” including one that was discovered under cushions in the living room, a lawyer said Monday.The latest one is dated March 2014 and appears to give the famous singer’s assets to family members. Some writing is extremely hard to decipher, however, and the four pages have words scratched out and phrases in the margins.The “Queen of Soul”, Aretha Franklin. (Photo by Greg Allen/Invision/AP, File)Franklin was 76 when she died last August of pancreatic cancer. Lawyers and family members said at the time that she had no will, but three handwritten versions were discovered earlier this month. Two from 2010 were found in a locked cabinet after a key was located.The 2014 version was inside a spiral notebook under cushions, said an attorney for Franklin’s estate, David Bennett.This Monday, May 20, 2019, photo shows one of three handwritten wills that a lawyer said were found in the home of Aretha Franklin in Pontiac, Mich., months after her death. Three handwritten wills have been found in the suburban Detroit home of Franklin, months after the death of the “Queen of Soul,” including one that was discovered under cushions in the living room, a lawyer said Monday. (AP Photo/Ed White)Bennett, who was Franklin’s lawyer for more than 40 years, filed the wills on Monday. He told a judge that he’s not sure if they’re legal under Michigan law. A hearing is scheduled for June 12.Bennett said the wills were shared with Franklin’s four sons or their lawyers, but that a deal wasn’t reached on whether any should be considered valid. A statement from the estate said two sons object to the wills.Sabrina Owens, an administrator at the University of Michigan, will continue to serve as personal representative of the estate.“She remains neutral and wishes that all parties involved make wise choices on behalf of their mother, her rich legacy, the family and the Aretha Franklin estate,” the statement said.In a separate court filing, son Kecalf Franklin said Aretha Franklin wanted him to serve as representative of the estate in the 2014 will. He is objecting to plans to sell a piece of land next to his mother’s Oakland County home for $325,000.Judge Jennifer Callaghan in April approved the hiring of experts to appraise Franklin’s assets and personal belongings, including memorabilia, concert gowns and household goods. The Internal Revenue Service is auditing many years of Franklin’s tax returns, according to the estate. It filed a claim in December for more than $6 million in taxes.Franklin’s star, meanwhile, hasn’t faded since her death. She was awarded an honorary Pulitzer Prize in April, cited posthumously for her extraordinary career. A 1972 concert film, “Amazing Grace,” was released with much praise from critics.The estate is involved in “many continuing projects … including various television and movie proposals, as well as dealing with various creditor claims and resulting litigation,” Bennett said.___Follow Ed White at http://twitter.com/edwhiteaplast_img read more

Best of Last Week Map of universe questioned violent history of our

first_img(Phys.org) —It’s been a quirky week for physics as a study finds weird magic ingredient for quantum computing—a team of researchers with the University of Waterloo’s Institute for Quantum Computing found that an odd aspect of quantum theory called contextuality is a necessary resource to achieve what’s been described as the bit of magic needed for universal quantum computation. Also, map of the universe questioned: Dwarf galaxies don’t fit standard model—the mismatch is calling into question the standard model of cosmology, which no doubt has a lot of space scientists nervous. And who’d of thought that after years of geological study, that researchers would find new evidence for oceans of water deep in the Earth—beneath the United States, no less. In another bit of quirkiness, 55-year-old dark side of the Moon mystery is solved—turns out the lack of maria was due to a temperature gradient that came about as a result of the way our celestial partner was formed. © 2014 Phys.org Study finds weird magic ingredient for quantum computing Citation: Best of Last Week – Map of universe questioned, violent history of our faces and resistant bacteria found in food (2014, June 16) retrieved 18 August 2019 from https://phys.org/news/2014-06-week-universe-violent-history.html In completely unrelated news, a breakthrough of sorts has been achieved by a team of researchers at Penn State as they announce rescue of Alzheimer’s memory deficit achieved by reducing ‘excessive inhibition’—it’s not a cure, of course, but a promising new way of treating the disease. And a team at the University of Utah is wondering if our countenance evolved into the shapes we see today as a means of minimizing damage due to people punching each other in the face; they wonder did violence shape our faces? That might explain a lot.More practically, a team at Rice University has found a way to mimic the impressive skills of the Stenocara beetle—it pulls water out of morning fog and holds onto it for a long time—they’ve announced: nanotube forests drink water from arid air—modified carbon nanotubes that allow for harvesting water from the air for long-term storage.And finally, news that should have us all worried as antibiotic-resistant bacteria found in food products for the first time—a squid at a fish market in Canada was found to have Pseudomonas in it, not a particularly bad bug, but one that could get into the human gut and help much deadlier bacteria such as E. coli become resistant. Is the day coming sooner than we thought when we won’t have any useful antibiotics? Let’s hope not.center_img Explore further An EarthScope map illustrates the location of seismometers throughout North America.
