John Prine, the ingenious singer-songwriter who explored the heartbreaks, indignities and absurdities of everyday life in 'Angel from Montgomery', 'Sam Stone', 'Hello in There' and scores of other indelible tunes, died at the age of 73.
A statement was released on his behalf to confirm John had been hospitalised after showing symptoms of Covid-19 on March 17 as his health deteriorated in the days afterwards.
Prine was never a major commercial success, but performed for more than four decades, often selling his records at club appearances where he mentored rising country and bluegrass musicians.
Super Pink Moon, this year's second, lit up the night skies, making it a spectacular sight to witness. This Super Pink Moon was also one of the brightest and the biggest full moons of 2020.
Super Pink Moon was the closest the Moon has ever got to the Earth. The average distance between the Moon and the Earth is 3,84,400 km whereas this Super Full Moon was only 35,035 km away from the Earth.
Supermoons aren't really super in size. They are called supermoons because compared to an average full Moon, supermoons appear around seven per cent bigger and 15 per cent brighter.
A team of three students from Manipal Institute of Technology which linked up with three professionals has won the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) COVID-19 Challenge event.
The team was declared as winner of its track – ‘Who to test and when’ under ‘How to protect vulnerable populations from the effects of COVID-19?’ There were a total of 10 tracks.
Throughout the hackathon, several mentors across the U.S. with diverse expertise were available to improve the idea and business proposal. The team will now have an opportunity to co-develop and implement the solution with the support of partners.
