Dad Life — A Special Delivery

Kevin Byard and his wife, Clarke, recently experienced something that many couples who have newborns would consider non-traditional.

It was not according to the game plan, but the Byards delivered Kevin Leon Byard IV at their home on August 23. It will not count to his interception total, but the Tennessee Titans Pro Bowl safety made what he can consider the biggest catch of his life, when his hands brought the child into this world.

Byard told the exhilarating story during a virtual press conference with media on Wednesday.

“It’s one of those deals where we couldn’t make it to the hospital,” he said. “My wife was having pretty bad contractions. I actually feel asleep because they ended up subsiding and I thought the baby was going to come the next day.”

But then things changed.

“She woke me up at about 10:30 having contractions. She was on the bathroom

Strictly Discs in Wisconsin, in a Pandemic: ‘There Seem to be Improvements’ in USPS Delivery Times

Owner Angie Roloff also discusses why last month’s Record Store Day felt like ‘a victory.’

In October 1988, Angie Roloff and her husband Ron opened Strictly Discs in Madison, Wisconsin, after Ron left a career in the biomedical research field to pursue his love of music full time. Nearly 31 years later, the couple made the difficult decision to shutter in-store operations due to COVID-19, roughly a week before Governor Tony Evers forced a mandatory shutdown of all non-essential businesses. Now that the Wisconsin Supreme Court has overturned Evers’ stay-at-home order — ruling it “unlawful” and “unenforceable” — the Roloffs and their employees have reopened the store.

As part of Billboard’s efforts to best cover the coronavirus pandemic and its impacts on the music industry, we will be speaking with Roloff regularly to chronicle her experience throughout the crisis. (Read the previous installment here and see the full series

Tesco is to trial home deliveries by drone in a move that could allow small items to be despatched to customers within 30 minutes to an hour of ordering.

Britain’s biggest retailer has teamed up with the drone delivery company Manna and will conduct the pilot next month in Co Galway in Ireland, where Manna has a licence to operate.

The trial is aimed at “small baskets” – a market Tesco estimates will be worth £10bn in the UK in the coming years.

Dave Lewis, the chief executive of Tesco, said: “They [Manna] have already proven the capability, the question is how do we take that capability and apply it to Tesco and that’s the detail that’s been worked on now before we get to the trial.”

Claire Lorains, group innovation director at Tesco, said: “We are interested to see how drones
