We’re going to get through this.”The NBA player, who stands at 6 feet 10 inches tall, currently has a four-year contract worth up to $164 million to play for the Nets after spending the past three seasons with the Golden State Warriors, winning two titles and being named NBA Finals MVP twice. He didn’t play this season, though, due to rehabilitating an Achilles tendon injury.Durant and his teammates join Utah Jazz stars Rudy Gobert and Donovan Mitchell and the Detroit Pistons’ Christian Wood as professional basketball players known to have tested positive for the COVID-19 virus.

Exposure to suicide in the workplace or in the family increases the risk of people killing themselves, joint research by the University of Oxford and Stockholm University concluded.The researchers discovered that people exposed to a colleague’s suicide at work are more than three times more likely to end their own lives.It was also shown that anyone who has a family member who’s committed suicide is more than eight times more likely to take the same path.Professor Peter Hedstrom, a researcher at Oxford University said, “Since there are so many more individuals who experience a suicide in their workplace, the aggregate effect is greater than what can be ascribed to the family, even though a suicide in the family obviously has a greater impact on the suicide risk of the individual in question.”

British Bakels MD Paul Morrow has been promoted to the two-strong executive committee that runs the Bakels group worldwide.The group comprises 35 Bakels companies spread over five continents and 30 countries employing over 2,000 people.Morrow will continue to report to executive chairman Armin Ulrich, who is based in Switzerland, while he takes over responsibility for growing the Bakels business worldwide.Morrow told British Baker: “The transition to the new role will take place later in 2008 and in that period we will appoint a new MD to take over my role in the UK.”Although much travel will be involved, Morrow will continue to be based in the UK, moving into new offices at the existing British Bakels HQ in Bicester.He said: “The UK industry gives you the experience of running an operating company in probably the most competitive bakery market in the world. If you make money successfully in the UK, you are world-class. I will stand firmly on the success of our UK business, where we have built successfully on our strong craft foundations. We can apply many of the lessons we have learned to the rest of the group. For example, European supermarkets now have a global presence.”Morrow added: “I have been at the helm of British Bakels for 14 years and am looking forward immensely to this new challenge. We must be in harmony with the markets we serve.”
South African branded food and healthcare company Tiger Brands is to buy consumer chocolate manufacturer Chococam. Tiger Brands intend to acquire 74.7% of Cameroon based Chococam from cocoa and chocolate product manufacturer, Barry Callebaut, with the remainder of the shares being held by a number of small private shareholders. The planned acquisition of shares would mean Tiger Brands would take over the entire business including employees. Chococam employs around 300 people and has annual sales of approximately CFA 18 billion (28 million euro/CHF 45 million).“This acquisition gives impetus to our strategy to expand our African footprint,” said Peter Matlare, chief executive officer of Tiger Brands. “We are delighted that we will have a presence in Cameroon as there is enormous growth potential in this market.”“We will remain present in Cameroon through our subsidiary SIC Cacaos in which we have just made important investment,” said Patrick De Maeseneire, chief executive officer of Barry Callebaut. “Our strategic focus in Africa is on cocoa bean sourcing and cocoa processing and not on consumer chocolate. That is why we have decided to divest the last one of our consumer activities, after having sold our consumer businesses in Senegal and Ivory Coast already.” The deal is expected to complete on 31 July 2008.

For his first selection, John Mayer shared “Sugaree” from the Grateful Dead’s performance on May 19th, 1977, at the Fox Theatre in Atlanta, Georgia. The show is coming up on its 40th anniversary on Friday, as it was part of the fateful ’77 spring tour that also saw infamous shows like the Barton Hall show at Cornell University on May 8th, 1977. In keeping with the idea that these songs are supposed to help John Mayer fans unfamiliar with the Dead get acquainted with the legendary jam band, Mayer also explained what made the performance so special, noting that the song has a simple chord progression but “incredible FEEL” as well as “great solo phrasing and slow climb” to its peak. [H/T Relix] If John Mayer had any thoughts about Chris Robinson’s criticisms about him on the Howard Stern show yesterday, the Dead & Company guitarist is keeping them to himself. Instead, the guitarist is looking to the future and his summer tour with Dead & Company, which kicks off over Memorial Day Weekend at MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas on May 27th. Mayer has recently been deep in a solo tour in promotion of his latest album The Search For Everything, and to switch gears, the guitarist announced via Twitter that he’d be sharing one his favorite Grateful Dead tracks each day until the start of the tour as way to “walk in” new fans.Chris Robinson Had Some Harsh Words For Both John Mayer And His Brother On Howard Stern The 5/19/77 Atlanta show was also released on Dick’s Picks Vol. 29 along with the Grateful Dead’s 5/21/77 show at Lakeland Civic Center Arena in Lakeland, Florida. You can listen to the single track of this performance of “Sugaree” on Spotify or the entire 5/19/77 show, courtesy of uploader Jonathan Aizen, below.
