The MLB is officially back today for a 60-day season, and the world feels just like it moved just a super tiny bit back toward normal. And here are three other things you should know: 1. Keep quarantining AND support black-owned restaurants. A new food delivery service called Black and Mobile launched in Atlanta, allowing you to keep socially distance yourself from others and order food from one of Atlanta's many black-owned restaurants. Philadelphia-based restaurant delivery service Black and Mobile makes its Atlanta debut this week, delivering food exclusively from Black-owned restaurants to neighborhoods around the city. Founded by 25-year-old Philadelphia native David Cabello in 2017 and launched last year, Black and Mobile aims to partner with and highlight Black-owned restaurants within the communities and cities in which it serves. Once Atlanta is up and running smoothly, Cabello and his twin brother Aaron plan to expand Black and Mobile to Los Angeles. The company’s Detroit operation launched earlier this year. Eater 2. Is Willie Nelson ahead of his time? For individuals who contract Covid-19, there might be one viable source of alleviation for their lungs: marijuana. Researchers are currently looking into how the Devil's Lettuce can combat the novel virus. This month, researchers from the University of Nebraska and the Texas Biomedical Research Institute are recommending more research into how cannabis-derived CBD might help treat dangerous lung inflammation from the novel coronavirus. The authors detailed the evidence for how cannabis’ anti-inflammatory powers may help in a peer reviewed article in this month's issue of Brain, Behavior, and Immunity. Forbes 3. The Braves are back. Tomorrow, the Braves will travel to Citi Field for their MLB opener against the Mets. Next Wednesday marks their home opener against the Rays. 25 years ago, the Braves won a World Series after some league tumult the previous year. Starting to see some parallels here. Braves Schedule
