Rock & Roll Hall of Famer Jackson Browne has tested positive for COVID-19, the disease caused by the novel coronavirus. The singer-songwriter announced the diagnosis on Tuesday via an interview with Rolling Stone.“As soon as I had a small cough and a temperature, I tested [for COVID-19]”, the 71-year-old said. “My symptoms are really pretty mild, so I don’t require any kind of medication and certainly not hospitalization or anything like that.”Though unsure, Browne believes he came in contact with the virus during a recent trip to New York City. Earlier this month, Browne found himself at The Beacon Theatre for the annual Love Rocks NYC event, which benefits God’s Love We Deliver, a volunteer organization that provides meals specifically tailored to medically-required diets for people with severe illness. Despite New York Governor Andrew Cuomo‘s ban on gatherings over 500 people, the event, which featured artists like Dave Matthews, Derek Trucks, Susan Tedeschi, Warren Haynes, Marcus King, Chris and Rich Robinson, Cyndi Lauper, Leon Bridges, and many more, continued on, albeit to a severely limited crowd.Related: Derek Trucks Talks COVID-19, The Brothers Show At MSG, More In New Interview“I feel lucky that I’m not really badly affected. I guess I’ve got a really strong immune system. There’s so much we don’t know. The one thing you can do is not go anywhere, not show up anywhere. Now, I wish I hadn’t gone to New York and done this benefit,” Browne said, reflecting on his decision to travel across the country during the onset of the pandemic.Browne continued, hopeful that his story would make it easier for others to deal with their own diagnoses, “It’s important for us all to be pretty forthcoming about what we’re going through. Our experiences will be helpful for others to know. I don’t think my case is that important, but it might be helpful to know that some people don’t get this really bad.”Due to this recent news and the uncertain nature of countrywide quarantines and shelter-in-place orders, it is unclear whether or not Browne’s shows with James Taylor at the end of spring and beginning of summer will proceed as scheduled.

ALS were responsible for carrying out a high load route survey, removal of street furniture, permits and liasion with authorities.In view of the quite exceptional dimensions, ALS selected an 8-row modular axle combination trailer to transport the tank, for stability purposes.Due to the almost 8 metre height of the load, along the route, overhead cables had to be raised and returned after the load had passed, as they were lower than the overall height of the transport.British Telecommunications and also private escort vehicles accompanied the load throughout the whole journey.Although with only a short distance to travel, this abnormal load required attention to detail and a high level of communication between ALS, police and local authorities to ensure it’s safe and timely delivery to site.The load was collected and delivered within the same day as per the requirements of the client.
The track was constructed by Industrial Railways Construction Co and completed ahead of schedule. The project was managed by Central California Traction, the short-line railroad that serves the port on behalf of BNSF and UP. The extended tracks improve interchanges between all the rail companies and reduce rail equipment dwell time at the port.The new track will be particularly important for the port’s export iron ore and coal traffic.www.portofstockton.comwww.up.comwww.metroports.comwww.cctrailroad.comwww.bnsf.com

The start of a new creative project is almost always wonderful and exciting. But all too often, halfway through a project, you hit a wall: your inner critic is telling you how bad the thing is and you’d much rather chuck it and start with something new.John Updike, 2-time Pulitzer Prize winner and bestselling author, would have turned 82 this week. He was also a methodical writer who knew what it takes to get stuff done (forward the video to 8:10):John Updike: “Any sentence could be stifled by the critic and won if you allow him to get the upper hand. But by and large, and keeping in mind that I am a little wary of the inner critic in me, once you start to try to put images and words of dialogue together, in some way the imaginary world takes over and mercifully shuts out all these harassing critical thoughts that you might otherwise entertain.”Even Pulitzer Prize winners sometimes disklike their own work. Listen to how Updike describes trying to finish Villages:John Updike: “This present novel that will be out — Villages — I several times thought it might be a bad idea and kind of abandoned it. So, it was really the habit — the habit of writing that kept me at it in the end. It was like a bad marriage. I mean, whatever. This is the wife I’m married to here, and I’m going to finish this book. Finishing it becomes the only way to get rid of it. So yes, it’s good to have a certain doggedness to your technique. “Updike wrote 3 pages a day at least, and wrote for 3 hours in the mornings. This kind of system allowed him to write a book a year:John Updike: “Since I’ve gone to some trouble not to teach, and not to have any other employment, I have no reason not to go to my desk after breakfast and work there until lunch. So, I work three or four hours in the morning, and it’s not all covering blank paper with beautiful phrases… I try to give about three hours to the project at hand and to move it along. There’s a danger if you don’t move it along steadily that you’re going to forget what it’s about, so you must keep in touch with it I figure. So once embarked, yes, I do try to stick to a schedule.”Freelancers, how do you finish projects you’re not into anymore or you’re critical about? What are the systems that allow you to push through?
West Ham fullback Ryan Fredericks: Top ten not good enoughby Paul Vegas18 days agoSend to a friendShare the loveWest Ham fullback Ryan Fredericks insists they must not settle for a top-10 finish.The Hammers missed the chance to go third when they lost 2-1 to Crystal Palace at home on Saturday. Fredericks said: “We are a confident bunch and have as good a squad as the top six. That is where we want to be, we have a lot of good players who are way too good to just be happy in the top 10.“We are a massive club with a massive fanbase and we need to be kicking on now. I think we have the players and the manager to do that. “We have started well, but Saturday was a big opportunity missed. We know how intense this league is and when you get chances like that, you have to take them.” About the authorPaul VegasShare the loveHave your say
