Metallica cancel shows at ‘Sonic Temple Art & Music Festival‘ and ‘Louder Than Life‘ festival..Metallica have cancelled their concerts at ‘Sonic Temple Art & Music Festival‘ in Columbus.. OH plus the show at ‘Louder Than Life‘ festival ... the reason for the cancellations is for James Hetfield to focus on his rec and urgent appoitments he has during those dates ...replacing Metallica at the ‘Sonic Temple Arts & Music Festival will be the Red Hot Chili Peppers on Friday, May 15th and Tool on Sunday, May 17th. ...no replacement yet for the ‘Louder Than Life Festival‘ ...Hetfield stated:“Dear Metallica Family,It pains me to write this, but I have to let all of you know that I cannot make it to Sonic Temple in Columbus and Louder Than Life in Louisville this year. As part of my continuing effort to get and stay healthy, I have critical recovery events on those weekends that cannot be moved.I apologize to all of our fans who have bought tickets for these festivals. We are working with the festival promoters to provide for refunds or exchanges. My intent with this statement is saying “I apologize” to each one of you.The reality is that I have not prioritized my health in the past year of touring and I now know that my mental health comes first. That might sound like a no-brainer for most of you but I didn’t want to let the Metallica team/family down and, I alone, completely compromised myself.Looking on the brighter side, my therapy is going well. It was absolutely necessary for me to look after my mental, physical, and spiritual health.I want to stress that the band will play all other announced 2020 shows.I am looking forward to getting back to playing and seeing all our great South American fans in April. And, of course, playing Epicenter in Charlotte, Welcome to Rockville in Daytona and Aftershock in Sacramento. We will still play two unique sets at each of these festivals.Beyond 2020, I am optimistic about the blessings I have been given and what the future brings. I appreciate all the great prayers and support from everyone since I went into rehab last September. Like the moth into the flame, being human in this career has its huge challenges and can be difficult. Your understanding helps the healing.– James“post - https://www.facebook.com/pg/Metallica...

A major coral bleaching event began on Magnetic Island, Great Barrier Reef in February 2020. Bleaching was first reported at the sheltered Geoffrey Bay fringing reef. This video shows bleaching at the more exposed Arthur Bay reef. Porites bommies and some Acropora were moderately bleached. The foliose Montipora which dominates much of this reef were unbleached. However many Acropora colonies and other species were unusually bright and colorful (they are normally dull browns and greens on inshore Magnetic Island) indicating that they are in an early stage of bleaching. Water temperatures were 30-32 degrees C, and higher in the shallows. The situation on other reefs will be posted. (The 'static' on the soundtrack is the 'clicks' of countless pistol shrimps etc).
