On this day in music history: April 4, 1964 – The Beatles make chart history when they become the only act to ever place singles in the top five positions on the Billboard Hot 100 simultaneously. “Can’t Buy Me Love” leaps from #27 to #1, “Twist And Shout” moves up to #2, “She Loves You” (#1 the previous week) falls back to #3, “I Want To Hold Your Hand” slips back two spots to #4 and “Please Please Me” moves down one spot to #5. In addition to dominating the top five, the band also holds down seven additional spots in that weeks chart. Then one week later on April 11, 1964, they occupy a total of fourteen chart positions on the Hot 100. The band having multiple singles in release on different labels at the time, make this unprecedented chart dominance possible, and to date, has never been duplicated by another recording artist. #thebeatles #billboardtopfivedomination #60s

It started overcast but turned out beautiful and 75 degrees. Ken, Kevin and I had some great launches, fun day. The rocket above is a Kit Bash by Kevin of an Estes Argent and Partison kit. He calls it the Silver Surfer and it is flying on a F63-10R.

(Reuters) – Nurofen producer Reckitt Benckiser sought to quash warnings against taking the drug on Monday, saying it was not aware of any evidence that the pills’ active ingredient ibuprofen adversely impacted patients suffering from COVID-19.
The company’s statement followed a warning https://www.reuters.com/article/us-health-coronavirus-france-drug/france-warns-against-use-of-anti-inflammatory-drugs-to-tackle-coronavirus-idUSKBN2110Q8 by France’s health minister on Saturday that people should not use anti-inflammatory drugs such as ibuprofen if they have coronavirus-like symptoms.
Olivier Véran, France’s health minister who is also a qualified doctor, said in a tweet on Saturday: “The taking of anti-inflammatories [ibuprofen, cortisone … ] could be a factor in aggravating the infection. In case of fever, take paracetamol. If you are already taking anti-inflammatory drugs, ask your doctor’s advice.”
Nurofen, one of Reckitt’s more popular drugs, contains 200 mg of Ibuprofen as its active ingredient in each tablet and is indicated for “effective pain and inflammation relief and reducing fever,” according to the company’s website. “RB has neither received new safety information nor been involved in the evaluation of any adverse events regarding the use of ibuprofen in COVID-19,” the company said on Monday.
“Appropriate use of ibuprofen and paracetamol is still currently being recommended by most European health authorities as part of the symptomatic treatment of COVID-19.”
The number of deaths in France from the coronavirus increased by more than a third on Sunday to 127 and over 5,400 have been infected, according to the country’s health authorities. (https://reut.rs/2TVwxKR)
