Captain Giacomo Bellucci has featured prominently in the news cycle due to his involvement in the disappearance of a naval officer at the Soltane Islands. Captain Bellucci, who heads the Carabinieri Office of Technical Investigations, has explained that the naval officer disappeared while looking into unexplained phenomena at the islands, and has denounced an apparent obstruction by the Sartorian Navy into his investigation of the disappearance.

Carabinieri are investigating a series of murders in Verale. While details are mostly confidential, a spokesperson has confirmed that the murders follow a clearly defined pattern and that profilers are working with local law enforcement to ensure that the perpetrator is captured.

Independence Day: July 8th is tight around the corner, but it may look different this year in some parts of the country this year. Hundreds of counties here in the FE are under extreme heat warnings, with temperatures in the mid to upper 100's. 296 counties have banned fireworks due to this, and the ongoing drought. The government has called for people to conserve water, don't water your lawn, and limit showers to 10 minutes. Water restrictions will be in place until further notice.

Breaking: New development on the Naval Ship Detonation case has been announced. Investigators say they have a motive for the National crime. Well what was it? To ensue national unrest and to usher in a new form of government. In complete detail, MP Lea Zeta (Opression Party) gave what that new Franconian Government was for, what would become of the Empress, and what would happen to you in the "New Franconia".

Interviewer: So you say that you wanted to "usher in a new Era of peace and forever faith to the government"? And you thought civil unrest would achieve this?

MP Lea: Yes. We want the people to have a forever faith in government. We want to ensure safety to the people, provide for them as they do for us.

Interviewer: And how would you achieve that?

MP Lea: Causing unrest would be the only possible way to make sure the Empress ceases the Emperial Residence.

The Foreign Office says that it is closely following the evolving situation in Franconia. A spokesperson said today that "we all want Franconia to be a stable country" and assured that all efforts would be taken to ensure the safety of Sartorians residing in Franconia.

Rumours abound regarding the state of the NMS Vannelli, whose disappearance and subsequent reappearance is shrouded in mystery. The Vannelli disappeared off the coast of the Soltane Islands two weeks ago, prompting an investigation that concluded early with the disappearance of the naval officer in charge of it. The case was then picked up the the Carabinieri Office of Technical Investigations -popularly known as Unit 16-, whose inquiries were reportedly blocked by the Sartorian Navy.

The Vannelli is reported to be a floating laboratory, though recently it has been stationed at East Soltane Naval Base. While there has been no publicly stated cause for its disappearance, the more sensational stories say that the incident involved supernatural phenomena. The Sartorian Navy has dismissed these stories, saying that the status of the ship is classified.

Blackouts: The ever expanding power grid is taking a toll due to its age and how many customers are using the grid at once. This has called for the government to limit power use in major metropolitan areas. Areas where electricity is the only way you are able to live (i.e. hospitals with patients, rural areas with swamp coolers and mobilized warming units [for the winter], etc.) are able to use the power grid all hours of the day. Your local governments will determine the days and hours of where the grid will be shut down. FEG&E Chair of Communication stated "We are working on the issue. FEG&E is deciding on whether or not to break the monopoly up into separate sections to control a new grid in each part of the nation. If we decide to go that route, then we need special government documents and permits. Until we are able to fix the issue, the grid will be shut down in increments of 6 hours for three days out of the week... That's the only way we can solve this until we have a ready plan."

There is heated debate on the Space Foreign Cooperation Act, a bill currently before the House of Councillors that would allow the Aerospace Service to formally cooperate with foreign space agencies. Elisa Argentero, the main sponsor of the bill, says that its passage would allow Sartoria to expand its cooperation in offworld bases and scientific research, suggesting that Franconia Empire would be an ideal partner in this endeavour.

The bill, which is currently being considered by the House Space and Science Committee, has tentative support from the Privy Council, but still has a long way before its passage is assured.

The Empire and The Empress would be honored to work alongside your scientists and space explorers, and the Sartorian Government.

Do y'all ever want to just fly somewhere and not come back? Just a general question.

I don't know about the "not come back part", but if things weren't so crazy right now (and if I was vaccinated already) I'd love to spend some weeks in NYC on my own, just doing my own thing without having to answer to anyone. I love that city so much.

NYC is gorgeous. I went back in 2016 for my high school choir trip IRL. It's like it's own world.

It really is one of the most amazing cities ever.

Breaking: A heated debate by Parliament today lead to talks of "crossing the floor" by three MP's. The Empress responded and now new laws have been enacted immediately to prevent crossing the floor.

The law states "Should a MP cross the floor, it is Head of Parliament's right to eject the MP and make it so the MP has to run for Parliament for the party that the representative defected to." This law also states that Members of Franconian Parliament have to re-register to vote when this happens. The Government said that they are "in no way telling you or MP's to vote for any certain candidate or taking your right to vote away. Citizens and MP's (under Voting Equality Act FE2133) 'have a guaranteed right to vote and register under any party'. This law is in no way for the public (except for the public who would like to hold government office).

More on this later.

Breaking: A cyber attack on a very big bank today left millions without cash. Over 24 Billion Astrons was stolen from Franconian Neighborhood Credit Union. 62% of the Empire banks with FNCU, including, but not limited to, politicians. Almost all of Parliament banks with the Credit union. 310 MP's left cashless, some with only 10 Astrons in their wallet.

The CEO and Owner of FNCU said "Whomever did this is going to receive a very cruel penalty. FEBI will arrest and will be forced to give back the 42 Billion Astrons stolen from the People. This is a crime to it's fullest extent and whomever is doing this will face severe punishment by law".

Some cashless Franconians are dealing with it full force. Angie Millerton received her paycheck 2 days ago and was about to make a purchase for a car. She checked her online banking and her account was completely drained. She needs it for work to travel. Millerton lives 58 miles from her job and her previous vehicle was destroyed in the Naval Ship Detonation. Her job donated 42,000 Astrons to get a car, and now, she has to take the bus.

The Empress says that she will personally find the person that did this if the FEBI cannot. This might hurt her reputation in the long run, but I think the FEBI has this one.

President Leggièri has signed into law the Space Foreign Cooperation Act, after the final text passed comfortably in both the House of Councillors and the Senate. Following the signing ceremony, First Councillor Bonaventura said that he is already coordinating with the Space Office and the Aerospace Service on possible avenues of cooperation with Franconia Empire and will soon begin bilateral discussions with the Franconian Embassy.

Breaking: The Sartorian Government, one if our closest allies and neighbors, will be working with the Franconian Government and the Galactic Federation, also alongside FESA, our largest space agency, to cooperate with the Sartorian Aerospace Service in both nations' future endeavors. FESA is welcoming SAS and cannot wait to see what kind of work the two Associations come up with. This is a big moment for both nations as it only will keep bringing them ttogether.
