DES MOINES – Testing at Iowa’s State Hygienic Laboratory has indicated three presumptive positive cases of 2019 novel coronavirus (COVID-19) in Iowa residents. According to the Iowa Department of Public Health (IDPH), the individuals are from Johnson County: one middle-age (41-60 years) adult and two older adults (61-80). Two of the individuals had underlying health conditions. One did not. None required hospitalization and are recovering at home in isolation. “The state of Iowa has been coordinating plans across state agencies, including a partial activation of the State Emergency Operations Center (SEOC), to protect the health of Iowans and assess our operational needs. While these are the first cases, it may not be the last and it’s why Iowans must continue to practice safe habits like hand washing and staying home from work when sick,” said Gov. Reynolds. “My team is engaged through the President’s Coronavirus Task Force, led by Vice President Mike Pence, as well as the nation’s governors to work collaboratively to limit the spread of COVID-19.”“All three individuals were part of a cruise in Egypt,”said IDPH Medical Director and State Epidemiologist, Dr. Caitlin Pedati. “IDPH is working with local public health to assess potential exposures to others. These cases are an important reminder that all Iowans need to help prevent the spread of illness by washing hands frequently, staying home when ill, and covering coughs and sneezes with a tissue.”COVID-19 was first linked to an outbreak in Wuhan, China, but cases have subsequently been identified in several countries, including the U.S. These are the first cases identified in Iowa. Confirmatory testing is pending at CDC.No additional or special precautions are recommended for Iowans beyond the simple daily precautions to combat the flu including washing hands frequently, covering coughs and sneezes, and staying home when ill. It is currently flu and respiratory disease season, and IDPH recommends getting the flu vaccine. Influenza activity is widespread in Iowa and as long as flu viruses are circulating, it’s not too late to receive the vaccine.For more information about novel coronavirus, visit https://idph.iowa.gov/Emerging-Health-Issues/Novel-Coronavirus. In addition, a public hotline has been established for Iowans with questions about COVID-19. The line is available 24/7 by calling 2-1-1.

zoom Physical suppliers should move away from fuel supply in the major bunkering hubs, and instead focus on smaller ports to reap the opportunities of a rapidly changing market, according to maritime consultancy 20|20 Marine Energy.Growing concentration of fuel supply in major bunkering hubs is expected to continue towards 2020, offering only increased competition and low margins.“Physical suppliers should leave the major ports for the refiners, cargo traders and those who have an obvious competitive advantage; let them focus on fuel cost minimisation, and shaving margins to a point where only the best blenders and cargo sourcers can make money,” Adrian Tolson, Senior Partner at 20|20 Marine Energy, said.Tolson added that traders are seeing their share of the market shrink and physical suppliers are seeing their supply volumes erode as they rationalise away from the low margin, larger supply locations.“The right strategy for independent physical suppliers will be to ensure that they have the expertise and flexibility to recognise, and then quickly move into the smaller, higher margin markets. Those that do will reap the rewards,” Tolson informed.

It’s not like they need to play the Silver Dollar and it’s not like they need to play Massey Hall. Either of those would have seemed stupid, but the Rivoli, for whatever reason . . . ”
Facebook Advertisement Login/Register With: Advertisement Neil Young is many things — a songwriter, poet, activist, pioneer of audio and clean energy technology — but above all, he is a musician’s musician.The legendary Winnipeg artist has spent more than half a century inspiring musicians globally while pushing his own musical boundaries, whether solo or in the form of Buffalo Springfield, Crosby, Stills & Nash and collaborations with his backing band, Crazy Horse. From his infamously intense performance inThe Last Waltz to his nearly five-decade-old song recently setting the scene for HBO’s biggest new hit, Young’s voice has stood the test of time (and technology).In honour of his Canadian Songwriters Hall of Fame induction this week, we’ve asked artists how Young has influenced their careers. Musicians from Cadence Weapon, the Barr Brothers, Jenn Grant, Alan Doyle and more picked a song of Young’s that has affected them the most — personally, professionally, but most often, both. Scroll down for picks taken from Young’s magnum opus, Harvest, to the more overtly political like Living With War — and a lot in between.All answers have been edited for clarity.Artist: Jolie HollandNeil Young song: “Don’t Cry No Tears;” “Revolution Blues;” “Welfare Mothers Make Better Lovers”“Neil’s work is really everything to me. I couldn’t name a single song. It’s his entire ethos that inspires me. He doesn’t shy away from the beauty or the brutality, but he’s never gratuitous. ‘Don’t Cry No Tears.’ ‘Revolution Blues.’ ‘Welfare Mothers Make Better Lovers.’ Among the big songwriters, he’s the lord of uncomfortable honesty. In that sense, he stands alongside Daniel Johnston. Neil’s always a model of aiming to the heart of the matter, but he never loses step with the muse. If she needs him to veer off in some crazy course, he’s right there with her. In that sense, Neil is among the most faithful of songwriters. You can feel it in all his work, his most transcendent songs as well as his most embarrassing ones. He knows meaning, but the music sends us right through the end of meaning, because Neil is that trusting, that available, to the muse.”.Artist: Brad Barr (the Barr Brothers)Neil Young song: “Don’t Let it Bring You Down”“The first time I heard this song, it reminded me of the way low-flying cumulus clouds break up the sunlight on bright days; thick shadows between moments of strong light. Even someone who knows little about music theory knows that most musical compositions are either in a major key or a minor key. In a nutshell: happy or sad. Classical composers often move freely between the two, but it’s rarely heard in classic rock, country, pop, etc. Neil does it on this song.READ MORE LEAVE A REPLY Cancel replyLog in to leave a comment RICH FURY/AP Advertisement Twitter
