From Astronaut Scott Kelly’s coronavirus tips to recent NFL drafts, enjoy our daily news feed.
From Deadline.com: Born Frederick Thomas, the South Bronx rapper had earlier sent out a picture of himself on a ventilator. He had asthma and had impaired kidney function as a complication of COVID-19. In the picture, he held up a closed fist, writing on Instagram, "I'm in here with this [COVID] 19 sh–! Please keep me in y'all prayers!!!"
From Fox News: Record-breaking former NASA astronaut Scott Kelly has a unique insight into staying engaged and motivated while in isolation. He spoke to Fox news: "I think it's important to let them know that their education is still important despite everything that is going on out there," he said, acknowledging that the lockdown has brought plenty of challenges for children and their parents. "Distance learning, or homeschooling, it’s good for some kids, but not all."
From Hiphopdx.com: YoungBoy Never Broke Again has dropped 38 Baby 2, a sequel to his breakthrough mixtape 38 Baby from 2016. The project marks his last release before a self-imposed music hiatus.
From CNN: The 2020 NFL Draft -- held virtually for the first time ever - is underway and, as expected, the Cincinnati Bengals selected former Louisiana State University quarterback Joe Burrow with the first overall pick. The Bengals' front office didn't need to overthink this one, as Burrow's spectacular final season at LSU positioned him as an easy top choice.
From Meaww.com: He sang a jazzy version of the Star Spangled Banner. Watching him perform the national anthem, fans on Twitter compared it to the Christmas carol, affirming that's what it sounded like.
From Dallas News: Rather than select former LSU defensive end K’Lavon Chaisson or help a shorthanded secondary, the Cowboys added former Oklahoma star CeeDee Lamb in Thursday’s first round. Defense figures to be a focal point for most of the draft’s remainder, beginning Friday in the second and third round.
From Si.com: General Manager Brian Gutekuns learned from predecessors Ron Wolf and Ted Thompson. Wolf traded a top pick to Atlanta for third-string quarterback Favre in 1992. Thompson grabbed Rodgers when he fell into his lap in the first round in 2005, even with Favre on the roster. The Rodgers pick obviously paid long-term dividends - the team has won one Super Bowl and reached four NFC Championship Games with Rodgers directing the offense – but it didn’t help the team at all for three seasons.
From The Verge: Travis Scott’s first virtual performance wasn’t just spectacular - it also broke a record. This evening developer Epic Games revealed that the concert, which took place inside of Fortnite, saw 12.3 million concurrent players participate. The developer says this is "an all-time record" for the battle royale game. The previous record holder was last year’s Marshmello concert, which topped 10.7 million virtual attendees.
From CNET.com: Get ready to master the elements. All three seasons of the animated Avatar: The Last Airbender will come back to US Netflix on May 15, the streaming service announced Thursday. The popular show aired on Nickelodeon from 2005 to 2008, and tells of the adventures of Aang, a 12-year-old boy capable of bending the four elements - water, earth, fire and air.
