Heavy Metal Postponed Due to Coronavirus | MetalSucks

As a result of ongoing concerns regarding the spread of the coronavirus, Heavy Metal music and culture have been postponed until further notice, the entire genre announced Tuesday.

Said Metal at a press conference held early this morning:

“For the foreseeable future, there will be no Heavy Metal of any kind — no trad metal, no thrash, no death metal, no power metal, no black metal, no doom metal, no stoner metal, no prog metal, no glam metal, no nu-metal, no rap metal, no folk metal, no pagan metal, no civilized metal, no pirate metal, no Christian metal, no alt-metal, no industrial, no grindcore, no hardcore, no mathcore, no metalcore, no deathcore, no Sumeriancore, no powerviolence, no pornogrind, no post-metal, no metal made by artificial intelligence, no shredding, no blast beats, no breakdowns, no Cookie Monster vocals, no falsettos, and… fuck it, y’know what? Let’s just go ahead and call off anything using an electric or acoustic guitar to be safe.”

Lest there be any doubt that Heavy Metal is deadly serious about public health and safety, millions of metal fans around the world woke up today to find their tattoos had disappeared, their ear gauges and septum piercings had closed up, and their vests had grown sleeves and sloughed off all patches.

MetalSucks will continue to stay abreast of the situation as it develops. In the meantime, you can watch video from Metal’s press conference earlier today below.

NASA center in California issues mandatory work-from-home policy after employee tests positive for COVID-19 – The Verge

One of NASA’s research centers in California has issued a mandatory telework policy after one of its employees tested positive for COVID-19, the disease caused by the novel coronavirus. The move is temporary for now, coming just a few days after NASA’s centers throughout the country tested out their work-from-home capabilities during a voluntary telework day on Friday.

On Sunday, NASA’s Ames Research Center in Silicon Valley, California, announced it was restricting access to its facilities. Engineers and scientists at Ames play roles in many of NASA’s major programs, focusing on areas like supercomputing, artificial intelligence, air traffic management, and more. The center is also home to immense wind tunnels that help test both aircraft and vehicles bound for space.

In its telework announcement, Ames Research Center noted that more updates would follow for employees who work in the labs and facilities on site. “We believe the exposure at the center has been limited, but — out of an abundance of caution, and in consultation with NASA Headquarters and the NASA Chief Heath and Medical Officer in accordance to agency response plans — Ames Research Center will temporarily go to a mandatory telework status until further notice,” the center said in a statement.

Employees have long had telework capabilities at NASA, but as the novel coronavirus outbreak spreads throughout the US, the space agency wanted to do a wide-scale test of its telework capabilities last week. NASA employees were encouraged to bring their laptops and badges home on Friday, March 6th.

“The purpose of this exercise is to test our capabilities, resources, and preparedness for large-scale teleworking,” Steve Jurczyk, NASA’s associate administrator, wrote in an email last week. “I encourage civil servants and onsite contractors who are telework eligible to participate by working from an alternate location Friday.” Jurczyk also told employees that they should start taking their laptops and other important work items home daily in case the outbreak progresses further in the coming weeks and days.

“Your continued support helps us remain vigilant if the situation requires additional actions,” Jurczyk wrote.

Ozwald Boateng celebrates black masculinity in Harlem – CNN Style

Written by Lilit Marcus, CNNNew York
When British designer Ozwald Boateng announced he’d be staging a fashion show about “AI,” most people assumed he was talking about artificial intelligence.
But to Boateng, who presented a collection at New York City’s legendary Apollo Theater last night, AI stood for “authentic identity.” And the show’s looks left no doubt about his commitment to that ideal.
The looks took West African design touches (Boateng is of Ghanaian heritage) and combined them with nods to the Harlem Renaissance. Fitting, as the Apollo is one of Harlem, and the country’s, most iconic showplaces for black culture.
In addition to being a spectacle in its own right, the show is one of many events taking place all over Harlem and the rest of New York City between 2018 and 2020 to mark the centennial of the Harlem Renaissance.

Models, who included a few famous faces like “The Wire” actor Michael K. Williams and musician Jidenna, showed off natty three-piece suits made of kente cloth, brightly patterned silk headwraps and enormous wooden circle bracelets that resembled the lip plates traditionally worn by Mursi tribeswomen in Ethiopia. The runway soundtrack was, also, primarily about black men, with tunes from Fela Kuti, Jay Z and Prince.

Everything was tailored to perfection — not surprising, as Boateng was the youngest person ever to have his own shop on London’s legendary Savile Row and the first tailor to show at Paris Fashion Week.
Boateng, who primarily designs menswear, branched out into womenswear for the show. The show’s opener was 67-year-old model Jo-Ani Johnson — signaling a new way forward for his eponymous fashion label. And that’s no coincidence — he has agreed to design new uniforms for British Airways personnel, which will make him the first black designer to create uniforms for a major global airline.

“We live in a time where Authentic Identity is becoming a crucial part of who we are and the journey we are on,” Boateng said in a statement to CNN. “My journey continues through working with British Airways on the new uniform, something I am proud and excited to share next with the world.”

Guests included best-dressed list regulars, including Idris Elba (who wore a Boateng-designed suit to marry Sabrina Dhowre last month), Jamie Foxx, Jesse Williams and Malik Yoba.
Nearly all of the models in the show were people of color, still a relative rarity at Fashion Weeks around the world. And there was one last surprise to close the night: a short performance from singer John Holiday, the Texas-born opera singer.

As Boateng dips his toe into womenswear, it’s clear he isn’t leaving his rich knowledge of men’s textiles and silhouettes behind him. His Harlem fashion show was a way of celebrating black men and of portraying black masculinity as both powerful and graceful.
