Johnson had been rushed to the hospital, raising the specter of a leadership vacuum that, amid the pandemic, renewed a sense of political uncertainty.The sense of uncertainty “operates on a number of levels, and they’re all destabilizing,” says Steven Fielding, an expert on British politics and political history at the University of Nottingham.“The very fact that the prime minister had been taken to hospital was something people genuinely found a bit disturbing,” says Professor Fielding.“They were concerned about how decisions would be made, and obviously political journalists have been trying to follow, ‘Who’s actually in charge now?’” he says.

From Senegal to Santiago, from Hong Kong to New Delhi, streets that over the past year brimmed with protests have gone mostly silent amid the coronavirus pandemic. So there’s little reason to think that the global discontent was a blip that won’t survive the coronavirus pandemic,” says Jonathan Pinckney at the United States Institute of Peace.In Senegal, the group Y’en a Marre has switched its message from demanding transparent democracy to the more pressing need of promoting good social-distancing practices. Pinckney of the United States Institute of Peace   says he expects the pandemic to affect various national protest movements in distinct ways, with some weakened and others reinforced.“In some countries we’re already seeing a rallying around the flag that could work against any expression of opposition, but in other countries they’re adapting in ways that are likely to leave [the movement] stronger,” he says. He also notes that the rough police treatment accorded some people displaced by the pandemic – as occurred in India – could turn into heightened repression once mass demonstrations return.But Mr. “But certainly all these actions are to some degree about maintaining our momentum.”Mr. Velasquez in Santiago believes Chile’s movement will come out of the coronavirus challenge stronger – and he cites one experience in particular that has left him confident of that.At home in his 16th-floor apartment one recent evening, he opened his windows to hear Freddie Mercury’s rendition of “Day-O” spontaneously shouted from balconies across his neighborhood, the words and responding cheers wafting across the city like a message of unity and hope. Loading… He also worries that the state will use the pandemic as a “pretext” for extending limits on personal freedoms.Mr. He notes that a recent poll measuring public perceptions of responses to the pandemic showed higher marks for the pro-democracy movement and falling support for the Hong Kong government.In Chile, where a subway fare hike in October touched off months of protests over widening economic divides, activists have quickly moved much of their expression of discontent indoors, while shifting their focus to the pandemic – and to the inequalities in access to health care and other services they say it highlights.“The movement that got started on October 18 was all about economic inequality, the inadequacy of public services like health, education, and transportation, and the daily struggles of the many in a country where wealth is concentrated in the hands of so few,” says Andrés Velasquez, an administrator for a small Santiago construction company who regularly participated in the protests.“It’s true that we can no longer gather in huge numbers in Plaza de Italia,” Santiago’s ground zero for the protest movement, he says. “The activists who organized these movements aren’t going away, and their underlying grievances aren’t going away, so there’s little reason to think that the global discontent was a blip that won’t survive the coronavirus pandemic,” says Jonathan Pinckney, chief researcher at the Program on Nonviolent Action at the United States Institute of Peace in Washington.“If anything,” he adds, “we are seeing the movements in many countries adapt and shift to using the coronavirus crisis to highlight issues like government incompetence and negligence that were already among the major rallying cries of protesters before the pandemic.”As one example, he cites how the Hong Kong pro-democracy movement over recent weeks has shifted to digital forms of expression to highlight what activists judge has been an already dismissive government’s inadequate response to the pandemic.At the same time, some networks within Hong Kong’s movement have moved beyond criticizing the government to taking matters into their own hands – for example by organizing to import more than 100,000 medical masks to distribute in poorly served communities. Y’en a Marre organizes car caravans from which musicians, one per car, perform the new songs as they cruise from one neighborhood to another.“The time for protest and mass demonstrations will return,” adds Mr. “But for now our aim has to be to preserve life.”

Just over a month ago, Senegal’s social action group Y’en a Marre – “Fed Up” in French – was spearheading mass street demonstrations to protest everything from unresponsive government and public-sector corruption to high electricity bills.These days taking it to the streets is no longer feasible, as governments around the globe ban large public gatherings in response to the coronavirus pandemic. And that, he adds, could mean stepped up public support for protest movements.Mr. Rather the mass protests are likely to come back once conditions allow.Not only have few of the protesters’ demands been addressed, experts say, but in many places the pandemic has only underscored some of their grievances, including indifferent government and the growing divide between haves and have-nots.“The activists who organized these movements aren’t going away, and their underlying grievances aren’t going away. But social action groups dedicated to the common good are finding the means, and new directions, to refocus their energies – temporarily. Pinckney has a hunch that in some places the pandemic, because of how it represents a threat to all social strata, will tend to increase a sense of empathy with the most vulnerable. April 10, 2020

A different plague: Africa battles next big wave of locusts

Weeks ago, the biggest locust outbreak some countries had seen in 70 years threatened Africa, and now the second wave of the invasive insects, far larger than the first, is arriving. April 10, 2020

Kampala, Uganda
Weeks before the coronavirus spread through much of the world, parts of Africa were already threatened by another kind of plague, the biggest locust outbreak some countries had seen in 70 years.Now the second wave of the voracious insects, some 20 times the size of the first, is arriving. Billions of the young desert locusts are winging in from breeding grounds in Somalia in search of fresh vegetation springing up with seasonal rains.Millions of already vulnerable people are at risk. So far the FAO has collected $111 million in cash or pledges.The locusts are “invading the Eastern Africa region in exceptionally large swarms like never seen before,” the Nairobi-based Climate Prediction and Application Center said.The new swarms include “young adults,” voracious bugs “that eat more than the adult ones,” said Kenneth Mwangi, a satellite information analyst at the center.Mr. an increasing number of new swarms are forming in Kenya, southern Ethiopia, and Somalia,” a new FAO assessment said.Favorable breeding conditions through May mean there will likely be another new round of swarms in late June and July, coinciding with the start of the harvest season, the agency said.The U.N.

Its officials have estimated this new wave to be 20 times the size of the first.”The current situation in East Africa remains extremely alarming as … Such worries in the village of some 600 people are reflected across a large part of East Africa, including Kenya, Ethiopia, and South Sudan. has raised its aid appeal from $76 million to $153 million, saying immediate action is needed before more rainfall fuels further growth in locust numbers. Some people will even tell you that the locusts are more destructive than the coronavirus. There are even some who don’t believe that the virus will reach here.”Some farmers in Mr. But mostly they watch in frustration, largely barred by a coronavirus lockdown from gathering outside their homes. In scramble for supplies, states start banding togetherA failed garden of cassava, a local staple, means hunger. But it’s a very, very real problem,” farmer George Dodds told the FAO.Aerial spraying is the only effective way to control the locust outbreak. A different plague: Africa battles next big wave of locusts

In a time of coronavirus quarantine, delays in the transportation of pesticides have been detrimental to East African countries who are fighting the largest locust invasion in 70 years. Abokat’s village near the Kenyan border bang metal pans, whistle, or throw stones to try to drive the locusts away. Health workers are threatening to strike over lack of protective gear.Other countries face similar challenges.In Ethiopia, where some 6 million people live in areas affected by the locust outbreak, the infestation if unchecked “will cause large-scale crop, pasture, and forest-cover loss, worsening food and feed insecurity,” the FAO says.Bands of immature locusts are forming in areas that include the country’s breadbasket like the Rift Valley region, it said.Ethiopia’s agriculture minister has said efforts are underway to deploy six helicopters against the infestation that could last until late August.But ministry spokesman Moges Hailu spoke of an ominous sign: The locust swarms are now appearing in locations where they had not been previously sighted. After the locusts crossed into Uganda for the first time since the 1960s, soldiers resorted to using hand-held spray pumps because of difficulties in obtaining the needed aircraft.Uganda’s agriculture minister said authorities are unable to import enough pesticides from Japan, citing disruptions to international cargo shipments.The government is yet to meet an additional budget of over $4 million requested for locust control, the minister said.The sum is substantial in a country where the president has been fundraising from wealthy people to help respond to the virus and its economic disruption.

Desert locusts swarm a tree in Isiolo county, Kenya on March 31, 2020. Mwangi and other officials in Kenya cited difficulties in fighting the infestation as coronavirus-related travel restrictions slow cross-border travel and delay the delivery of pesticides.The verification work of field officers has been curtailed, making it harder for the center to update regional prediction models, Mr. “Once they land in your garden they do total destruction.

Sia – Tsunami Lyrics

Tell me, do you feel this way? [Chorus]
‘Cause when we’re over the sea, a tsunami, a tsunami
‘Cause we’re over the sea when you look at me, when you look at me
No way that we can’t believe
‘Cause see, I can barely breathe
Oh, I can’t get enough of you
Oh, baby, tsunami
[Verse 2]
Run-D.M.C. (Is your heart on flames?)
Tell me, is your heart on flames? (Is your heart on flames?)
Tell me, is your heart on flames? (Is your heart on flames?)
Tell me, is your heart on flames? Tell me, do you feel this way? Please say my name if you need me, whoa
See how I open up, I will be enough
‘Cause baby, you are the [?] to me

Tell me, do you feel the same? Tell me, do you feel this way? Tell me, do you feel this way? Tell me, do you feel this way? Tell me, do you feel this way? Play this song

Gerry Cinnamon – Head in the Clouds Lyrics

Play this song
[Verse 1]
Head in the clouds or under the weather
[?] to the same old shite and you   care   to remember
Rough as   a stone or light as a   feather
You’re on top of the world and you smile looking   down   on   side with the   lava
They tell you   ”Nothing is free, only thing guaranteed is a load of [?]”
[Verse 2]
Head in the clouds or under the weather
Having your fun with two weeks in the sun then the rest is December
But somethings appearing, it’s blurring your vision
And it’s cutting a shape like a hot razor blade with your deadly precision
Now you’re caught in a game, you don’t know how to play but you win by decision
[Verse 3]
The bonniest burning, the craziest feeling
Down in your guards where you hide all the things you don’t want to be hearing
Your feeling is burning, you try not to fight it
So you try to be cool but then act like a fool, you don’t how to hide it
God, it feels like dream [?] final [?]
[Verse 4]
[?], though you’re no very clever
You’re still stupid enough to know that you can’t run forever
On your mind every day, gives the pain goes away every time you’re together
[Verse 5]
Take a trip to the jungle, become a magician
Find an army of wise old [?] men and hope they kill your condition
No more satellite navigation to reach your position
I don’t know if your really in love but I have my suspicions

Iss safar mein jisne bhi saath diya haiSabka shukriya!Ab kahaani aage leke jayegi kalamkaar pariwarAur its your boy raftaar nahinAur its your bhai raftaar, #Raa Haq ki ladayi hai to laddHaq ki kamayi hai toKabhi chhodiyo na ek paisaTune abhi dekhi kam duniyaTu jaana nahin har koi hota nahi ek jaisa
Tu kabil hai to mauke milengePar mauke dene walon se bhi dhokhe milengeBeta ruk ke kariyo na naam badnaam meraKeh diyo ab seedha show pe milenge
To yeh locker wali baat dafan parPar ghar se nikla sar baandh kafanJaise marke nikla phir aag se bankeWoh baaz jo karta na haar pasand
Sab bole mujhe that I’m proud of youRab bole mujhe that I’m proud of youMera dil bole mujhe that I’m proud of youGhar wale bole we never doubt at you
Sab bole mujhe that I’m proud of youRab bole mujhe that I’m proud of youMera dil bole mujhe that I’m proud of youGhar wale bole we never doubt at you..Naa
Kar kabhi bhi mujhpe shaq naMaa ne bola meri izzat tu rakhnaPapa bole sahi raah pe chalnaChhote mein bade mein kabhi karna farak na
Jag raha tha ki kaali raat saath chhodeMeri * ke bhai mere saath daudeKare bhool beta kisi pe bhi hath chhodeDil roya jab maa ne school aake hath jode
Par maa ko bhi tha yeh pataKi kapdon pe haste bada the raheesjadePapa dekhe ghar kare maa ka kaamMaa bani papa poori tankhwah se meri fees daale
Beta ab gaadi mein na keys daaleSadkon pe cruise highway pe kheech daaleSabke ghar walon se meri yeh ghuzarishInhe sapne jeene do inke gale mein na lease daale
DILIN bana MAX phir bana RAFTAARSabar maare meri bhookh jaise IftaarKalamkaar pariwaar naya sapnaKalakaar se bhi zyada har koi apna
Kabhi ab feeling loonSeedha 20 foot uchi ceiling loonKhanna bhai kar lena dealing tuTum saath ho to baant lo ye bill in two
Daawat hai, dawat haiAaj mere apno ki dawat hai dawat haiYeh meri chaahat haiSabko khilane ki chhoti si chahat hai
Aadat hai, aadat haiLad bhid ke chalne ki bachpan se aadat haiRaahat hai, raahat haiMere apno ki khushi mein bohat zyada taakat hai
Sab bole mujhe that I’m proud of youRab bole mujhe that I’m proud of youMera dil bole mujhe that I’m proud of youGhar wale bole we never doubt at you.. Aye! Nair, #Raa1988 se bonfire

Jo tera dil bole wo bannAage leke jayegi ye teri laganTere sapno ke liye abhi paise nahinAur maang ke laye hum waise nahin
Tu karle jo karna hai karke jatanAaj ghutan seh le tod badanJod rakam jod le dhan sona chod deHaath na failana jeena chaud se son

Machine Gun Kelly – In these walls with Lynn Gunn

[Intro: Lynn Gunn]
I feel you in these walls
You’re a cold air creeping in
Chill me to my bones and skin
I heard you down the hall
But it’s vacant when I’m looking in
Oh, who let you in? Take a knife in the back, wanna feel my pain
Make a slice to the wrist to reveal those veins
I could see your face, man I feel insane
[Chorus: Lynn Gunn & Machine Gun Kelly]
Never thought that I would feel like this
Such a mess when I’m in your presence
I’ve had enough, think you’ve been making me sick
Gotta get you out of my system, yeah
It’s my house
And I think it’s time to get out
It’s my soul
It isn’t yours anymore
It’s my house
And I think it’s time to get out
Yeah, I think it’s time to get out
[Outro: Lynn Gunn & Machine Gun Kelly]
Yeah, yeah, ooh, oh-oh
Yeah, I think it’s time to get out You walk around like you own the place
But you never say anything
I caught you walking straight through my walls
Guess it was all my fault
I think I let you in
[Verse: Machine Gun Kelly]
Look, you said I never wrote a song for you
So I hope this one is haunting you
You said even if it took forever
That me and you would be together
And I never thought that you would lie
So I’ll admit I took advantage of your precious time
I’ll admit I took advantage of you every night that I was on the road
Even at home I wouldn’t do you right
I’ll admit it, but don’t think for a minute I’ma let you
Convince me that what we started is finished
Or for a second that I wouldn’t take a bullet to the head for you
Paint the bottom on my floor red for you and kissed by an angel
Touched by the devil, blood from a nose, red as a rose petal
I think we’re caught up in a power trip
She my Kate Moss, I’m her Johnny Depp
Light pull the fast life in the fast lane
Lights in the cab night drinkin’ champagne
Ice make a last ice for the back pain
With the knife on the dash, pipe with the ashtray
And we fuck with the lights off, break a lamp shade
Did it twice in the room, once in the matinee, oh
Hide all the fresh wounds like a band-aid
With the stripes on the black suits for the campaign, oh
What a damn shame
King of the underworld, what a damn name
‘Cause he killed all the other girls in the damn frame
For a queen that he never realized had fangs
Damn, do you feel what I’m sayin’?

Make Them Suffer – Drown With Me

Your slumber awaits
for you to come claim. Don’t fear the oceans of change,
These waters waiting an age
are so much wiser than words can explain. Let your lungs become wings. Take my hand, don’t be scared. Don’t fear the oceans of change,
for they have spoken your name. Rewind and repeat. So take my hand and drown with me. Take my hand, don’t be scared. Come be swept up in memory. Rewind and repeat. Like we’re sand, like we’re stones in the water. Your bed awaits for you to claim. Let your spirit be taken by seas. Let your spirit be taken by seas. Come drown with me. Sink down with me. Drown with me Sink down with me,
come be swept up in memory. Let your lungs become wings. Lost in the surge of the waves. So take my hand and drown with me. Like we’re sand, like we’re stones in the water. Drown with me if you can. Drown with me if you can. Let your spirit be taken by seas. Drown with me if you can. They have known you from long since before you came. Relief still feels fathoms away. Drown with me if you can. Play back these moments in our dreams.
