General Hospital Actor Jay Pickett DIES on Film Set

Actor Jay Pickett, best known for his work on such daytime soap operas as General Hospital and Port Charles, died last week in Idaho while acting in a western he co-wrote, Treasure Valley. He was 60 years old. At the time of this writing, Pickett’s cause of death has not been released, but the film’s director Travis Mills believes that the longtime actor suffered a heart attack while sitting on a horse.“Jay Pickett, our leading man, writer, producer, and creator of this movie passed away suddenly while we were on location preparing to film a scene. There is no official explanation for the cause of his death but it appears to have been a heart attack,” Mills wrote in an emotional Facebook post. “Everyone present tried as hard as they could to keep him alive. Our hearts are broken and we grieve for his family who are so devastated by this shocking tragedy.”Mills went on to say that Pickett was “an incredible man” who was “kind, sweet, and generous” to all those who collaborated with him. “It is difficult to find the words right now to say more,” he added. “His closest friends have said that he was very happy making Treasure Valley and my hope is that he truly was. He was doing what he loved: acting, riding horses, making movies. And he was magnificent.”Pickett’s co-star, Jim Heffel, provided more insight into his death with a Facebook post of his own. Jay died sitting on a horse ready to rope a steer in the movie Treasure Valley in Idaho. The way of a true cowboy. Jay wrote the story and starred in it. He was also co-producer with myself and Vernon Walker. He will be truly missed. Ride like the wind partner,” he wrote.Jay Pickett appeared on such 80s classics like China Beach, Mr. Belvedere, Jake and the Fatman, and Matlock before transitioning into daytime soaps. Later in his career, Picket made several guest spots on such shows as Dexter, The Mentalist, NCIS: Los Angeles, Rosewood, and Queen Sugar. He is survived by his wife and three children.

    Operation: Tango – 7 gameplay ideas to turn you right into a world-saving spy duo

    Operation: Tango is a co-op spy adventure that challenges you and a friend to work together as Agent and Hacker to complete exciting missions all across the globe. The game is online-only, requires two players (no solo), and is 100% dependent on voice chat since the Hacker and Agent exist in entirely different locations within the game world. This sort of intensely cooperative spy work can be daunting, so we’re here to provide you with special insights to maximize the fun of near-future co-op espionage. 1. Recruit a friend for free Given the two-player requirement, recruitment should be your first priority. Operation: Tango supports both cross-play and a Friend Pass, meaning you can invite a friend to play with you for free even if they play on a different platform. Simply ask your partner to download the Trial Version of the game, and then start a game together. Cooperation and fun are at the heart of the experience, so even the most casual gamers can jump in and tackle missions with you right away! 2. Agent or hacker, there’s no wrong choice  Once you’ve recruited a friend, there’s no need to fight over who takes on which role. The Agent and Hacker roles are both built from the ground up to be integral to the experience while delivering their own unique brand of awesome. You’ll never be waiting around while the other player is having all the fun. Asymmetrical co-op is all about constant participation, and while the Agent may be “on the ground,” the Hacker will find themselves in virtual locations that rival anything the real world dishes out with regards to danger or visual splendor. 3. Communication is key  Remember, your partner can’t see what you see, and vice-versa, so words are your most essential tool. Always try to speak freely, share details about your unique perspective, and talk through each challenge as if you were confronted with it in a real-life setting.  Operation: Tango’s puzzles rely as much on communication as they do on creative problem-solving. Whether you’re describing abstract elements, giving directions, or trying to make sense of complex rule sets (while a timer counts down, no less), well-chosen words are the key to success, and sometimes the difference between life or death. Your voice is the one thing that connects you. The more you use it, the more effectively you can work as a team to complete each mission. 4. Take on a collaborative mindset  When you’re part of a dynamic spy duo, you simply can’t go it alone. Winning like a team means playing like a team.  Embrace your reliance on your teammate, and be sure to thank them for their efforts. Always try to keep kindness and patience in ample supply. Each obstacle you face is another opportunity to work better together, and there’s nothing better than completing a mission with a partner whose infectious positive attitude keeps things light-hearted and fun during even the most stressful moments. 5. Make your own fun Unlike scripted single-player games, Operation: Tango provides opportunities to insert your personality into the game. With emotes, dynamic text, and the ability to alter whole AR environments, there is ample room for personal expression. For some pairs, good-natured trolling can be half the fun. Get creative! 6. Take the hint Although we’d never want to rob players of a single “eureka” moment, sometimes a puzzle just doesn’t “click.” There’s no need to search the internet for solutions or rage quit out of frustration. Operation: Tango’s hint system is a button press away, and provides just enough guidance to inspire a new approach to finding a solution. Used with discretion, it’s a great way to maximize your gaming session. 7. Switch it up  Perspective is everything, so don’t hesitate to change roles and replay missions to get the full experience. Operation: Tango is essentially two games in one, so don’t miss out on half the fun!   Operation: Tango is available now on PS4 and PS5. If you’re a PlayStation Plus subscriber and own a PS5, you can download it for free from June 1 until July 5, 2021. Regardless of where your friends play, they can join you for free thanks to cross-play and the Friend’s Pass. Thanks for letting us share this briefing with you. We hope you enjoy the game!
