DIL DI CHANGI Lyrics and Video Song – Aatish

Tainu rabb ne husan ditta raj raj ke Na chaddi tere ch kami koyi Tu kaala tikka la le na lag je nazar hi tainu
Tu dil di changi ae batheri akal vi tainu Utton rabb ne ditti hai soni shakal vi tainu Tu dil di changi ae batheri akal vi tainu Utton rabb ne ditti hai soni shakal vi tainu
Phoolan ne vi khushboo tere ton udhari litti ae Sooraj tethon leke laali chadh da ni Gal kardi de muhon tere bol avein nikal de Jivein koi shayar shayari padh da ni Tainu katrina aakhan ya aakhan deepika tainu
Tu dil di changi ae batheri akal vi tainu Utton rabb ne ditti hai soni shakal vi tainu Tu dil di changi ae batheri akal vi tainu Utton rabb ne ditti hai soni shakal vi tainu
Mere har sawal da jawab tu de deni ae Google tethon knowledge ikkathi karda ni Nirmaan de har ik geet ch teriyan hi taareefan hundiya ne Chann ve tere kolo taiyon sadd da ni Taiyon tan karke rakheya hai dil vich lock tainu
Tu dil di changi ae batheri akal vi tainu Utton rabb ne ditti hai soni shakal vi tainu Tu dil di changi ae batheri akal vi tainu Utton rabb ne ditti hai soni shakal vi tainu Tu dil di changi ae batheri akal vi tainu Utton rabb ne ditti hai soni shakal vi tainu Main jinni vi taareef karaan ghatt lagdi Tere vich na kami koyi..

Pahli vari pinjre chon si main dil kadeya Keha ankhan band kar ke le udd chaleya Dil kehnda dig ke main kitte tutt na jawaan Aine tukde main ban tere hath na aawaan

FIRSE MACHAYENGE REMIX Lyrics and Video Song – Emiway Bantai, Macklemore

Merese
Dil dekh ke pada tha na farak mujhe chehre se Kisi ki parwah nahin hai muje matlab tere se Sirf teko milne ke liye nikalta hun mein ghar se Khulam khula pyaar karenge nahin karenge dar ke
Tere gharwale bhadke toh mana lunga Jyada din nahin baby teko meri wali banalunga Chalenge hum trip pe tab khana wana bana dunga Guitar bajane aata hai pyaara gaana suna dunga
Doosre ke pyaar mein girne se tujhe bacha raha hoon Sab mujhe bhaav de rahi phir bhi sab ko wata raha hoon Tere baare mein sabko achi baatein bata raha hoon Tere liye mummy daddy ko main ghar pe mana raha hoon Sahi mein.. Alright we drinkin a lassi Movin our body I’m masala with a sauce And I never take an off day
Chai stand post up no latte Bidi smoke cloud puff puff Varanasi selector Play one of those hits
India you ain’t never seen colors like this Turquoise and the orange And the yellow & the pinks Fell in love as a sunset
Into the abyss grab your waistline Kiss your neck to the bass line Hold us slow it down dave brubeck Take 5 let me do my 2 step
Crossover a.I peel off in the whip Through a gray sky skkrt skkrt windows up Watch the world disappear As we kick up dust
Let the magic of the night go And do what it does Never get in a way of somebody Falling in love.. Wazan thodi meri ghata raha hoon Tujhe lean body pasand hai Main healthy khaane chaba raha hoon Sun ne main aaya hai tu london mein rehti hai Abhi ke abhi jaake pehli ticket kata raha hoon
Machayenge gaana baj ra global Bantai ki public full fire yaha koi nahin sober Sabko ijzat milna chahiye koyi ni yaahan pe naukar Hasna sikh le varna zindagi bita le ro kar Marzi teri.. I’m gone
Fir se machayenge remix bajade public kar ri shor Meko dekh main machara mere saath mein macklemore Daru chod ghumenge firenge piyenge hum lassi Hater log pareshan hai soche kaise hai tu fassi.. Achi soch rakhta kaam kar bana apna mauka Seekh un logo se jisne diya tujhe dhoka Kisne roka tera nauka tu chalega tere daam par Duniya dekhegi tujhe tu jaake pehle kaam kar
Salam kar bade ko koi kalam bano Gardi mein safar kiya toh jaake tum udaan bharo Birthday pe party nahin birthday pe daan karo Jo bhi ud rele hawa mein kya tum abhi chaand par ho
Tu koshish kar shuruat mein thoda sa suffer hai Kaam karte saath mein haan rakhna thoda sabar hai Paisa double hai jab bhi tera waqt aayega Kisi ki garj na rakhna mehnat karke laayega
India mein bajta tha gaana duniya bajayega Paisa kamana aasan hai pyaar kaise laayega Swimming pool chhod apan samandar mein nahayega Fir se machane bole haan firse machayega..

LIHAAJ Lyrics and Video Song – Harleen Singh

Gall suni ik main sunawaan sohneya Bahutiyan na inna main manawaan sohneya
Gall suni ik main sunawaan sohneya Bahutiyan na inna main manawaan sohneya Karun poora satkar parivar da Ve mathe watte main na paungi

Bas tussi mere te yakeen rakheyo Jithe kahoge main mud jaungi Hass hass tussi jehde raah te turoge Us raah te main turr jaungi
Par maapeyan da ladda naal pali aan Ve chidkan main seh na paungi
Ve main dahej ni le aana sohneya Naal le ke lihaj aaungi Ve main dahej ni le aana sohneya Naal le ke lihaj aaungi Ve main dahej ni le aana sohneya Naal le ke lihaj aaungi
Hauli hauli karu adjust family ch Galtiyan maaf kariyo Thodi jehi niyani matt meri haaniyan Pyar naal gall baat kariyo
Hauli hauli karu adjust family ch Galtiyan maaf kariyo Thodi jehi niyani matt meri haaniyan Pyar naal gall baat kariyo

Kenyan Producer Claim Tekashi 6ix9ine Paid Him $900 For YouTube Copyright

Under the terms of his house arrest, Tekashi 6ix9ine is allowed to release new music and requested special permission from the judge in the matter to record the music video for his comeback single, which dropped simultaneously on May 8th. Although Magix initially accepted the cash, he then had a change of heart. View this post on Instagram

Twitter Tekashi’s team has denied all claims involving a monetary settlement. The 2 minutes and 29 seconds-long clip set a new YouTube record for most streams on a hip-hop video in 24 hours with 43 million views. It was reinstated shortly after, with Magix Enga, who made the accusation, saying, “6ix9ine, your song ‘GOOBA’ is now on YouTube, let me just forgive you bro, but at least respect Magix Enga, Kenyan Beat King.”
Magix’s comment may have made it seem as though the video was reinstated purely in good faith, but it appears as though there was money involved. So, yesterday, I refunded the money,” he said. “GOOBA” signified 6ix9ine’s re-entry into the hip-hop realm after spending months behind bars for racketeering. The African producer has now told RapTV that he was offered the equivalent of $940 to put the song back up as soon as possible. The music video for “GOOBA” is currently sitting on more than 310 million views, with his next music video for his upcoming single “TROLLZ” set to drop on Friday. All was well — until the video was removed from the platform. How exactly did Tekashi 6ix9ine get his latest music video back on YouTube after it was removed? Kenyan music producer, Magix Enga, had alleged that 6ix9ine copied one of his beats, and the video was taken done by YouTube over copyright infringement. “I was like… I was 50/50 about that, but I decided to forgive the guy and take the money, but the next day I was like, hm… I need the credit. The video feels like the aftermath of a rainbow explosion and even has 6ix9ine throwing shade at all those who have called him a snitch since ratting out his Nine Trey Gangsta Blood members by transforming into a snitch.

Producer Rvssian Defends His Jamaican Card Amidst “Privilege” Criticisms

it’s all love. But the trolls behind them phone on the net. (@M_Sceptre) June 5, 2020

Facebook
Twitter Everybody did not come from the ghetto. Motto. I’ma work harder just for you – hopefully you will grow to hate less. It’s an interesting accusation considering Rvssian’s career started with heavy involvement in the local music industry, boasting various collaborations with the likes of Taurus Riley and the Teacha, Vybz Kartel. I love my country and people. Born and raised in jamaica ?? No negative vibes here. It’s a lot more than that. Now go and sit down,” one fan commented. The man story good. So because my struggles ate different, my story is not worth being told?”
Rvssian leveled the naysayers with a few receipts, including a photo of himself at an inner-city kid’s treat, and left some lines ‘for the trolls behind them phone on the net’: “God bless y’all. “Did your ancestors build the nation? Hate blocks blessings. Not all Jamaicans grew up around violence and dysfunction. my entire life. pic.twitter.com/Pm7M2Eiqmw

When I’m in streets in Jamaica ?? Jamaican producer Rvssian says trolls and ‘Jamaicans hiding behind their phones’ moved him to address the fact that “Jamaican” is not skin color or a set story, and regardless of circumstance, we’re one nation. Out of many, One people. Even with the groundwork and recent wins, naysayers still set out to call out Rvssian in the comments, as ZJ Sparks neatly put it.

Rvssian born uptown. — Rvssian (@Rvssian) June 4, 2020

Big up mi mother and father – love you?? God bless y’all. I’ma work harder just for you – hopefully you will grow to hate less. Don’t lose yourself. Producer Rvssian was forced to defend his Jamaican card while getting criticized for being “privilege.”
As the world continues to confront systemic prejudices in the wake of George Floyd’s death, one of our own has had ?to defend his love for his country and his people. Hate blocks blessings. No negative vibes here.”
Is Rvssian right, or do you think the critics have a point? But a lot of Jamaicans on the net behind their phones like to act like they more Jamaican than me for what reason? And never struggle or have to beg no man him just work hard at his craft yes but he had financial and family support and that big boy his fault but. Others insisted his background is still worth mentioning in regard to his current success: “Privilege doesn’t mean you didn’t work hard. Undertones of classism and colorism are prevalent in Jamaica, where a common assumption is that those removed from stories of struggle do not have an authentic enough Jamaican experience or voice. It cant be prevented but it can be acknowledged.” The rest of the feedback was incredibly positive, urging him to ignore them, go harder at his craft, even citing the proverb, “If a cow born inna a pig pen is still a cow doe listen dem yah yardie.”
Another summed up Rvssian’s own sentiments with a similar reaction to those questioning the depth of his roots. you are NOT a descendant of enslaved people who were wrongfully subjected to inhuman treatment yet still the country was built off of their backs. I love the people. Him wasn’t a notnice. It’s not an attack on all the hard work you did. A lot of people have some form of privilege they were born with. No. “Jamaica is not just struggles and ghetto stories. In a series of subtweets, the international hitmaker shut down the Twitter fingers, pointing at his privileged upbringing as an indication that his patriotic comments are insincere. Never no hate. So don’t come like the man start from nothing .kmt

but he should acknowledge that his family name and complexion made things way easier for him…it will make him come across more genuine

Young Thug & Gunna Reacts To Shots Fired On “Fox 5” Video Set In Atlanta

Their edgy fits for the visuals were also well color-coordinated from head to toe. Lil Keed later took to Instagram to share some still shots from the music video. They can now add their experience with “Fox 5” to the list of stories to tell. There were a number of people on set, which did not become evident in the footage until gunshots rang out in the neighborhood where they were filming. Young Thug addressed the shooting in a video clip on IG, saying that they are responsible for the shooting. From the photos, Lil Keed’s signature symbol, a snake can be seen wrapped around the necks of both rappers at different points. “Anytime you see shoot outs and shooting and anything we involved in, know we the ones who done did it,” Thug said. Gunna is fresh off his first No. Lil Keed and Gunna had to abort their music video shoot after gunfire erupted on the scene, and now Young Thug is addressing the reports. After recently collaborating with his YSL labelmate Lil Keed on their new track “Fox 5,” Gunna was spotted on set of a music video for the song on Monday, which saw a scary turn of events. Gunna reacted on his IG story saying, “Don’t believe the cap.”

Fans were pleased to hear that Gunna and Lil Keed, along with their associates on set, were all okay after that scary episode. Keed captioned the first set, “Fox 5 ft gunna soon.” He also shared a second post with more behind the scenes photos with the caption “Dooms Day” with the zipped lips emoji which seemed to allude to the temporary disturbance that occurred earlier at the shoot. 1 album, and he is still putting in the work.

Thankfully everyone seemed to scamper off safely with no injuries being reported from the incident. Gunshots ring out while Gunna and Lil Keed were shooting a video today. Lil Keed’s locks were dyed blonde to avoid clashing with Gunna, who rocked a brighter than usual red head dread style.

Popcaan Is A Proud Dad As His Daughter Rihanna Graduates Prep School With Honors

A post shared by 876GUD (@popcaanmusic) on Jun 8, 2020 at 9:26am PDT

Twitter Still, the day belonged to Rihanna, with a host of big names dropping in to the comments to show some love and offer congratulations to both. A post shared by 876GUD (@popcaanmusic) on Jun 3, 2020 at 8:12pm PDT

With one major event in the Unruly king’s personal life taken care of, he may be ready to set his sights on owning the summer. The “Nah Idle” deejay was all smiles in several photos posted yesterday on his Instagram page. We’ve gotten used to seeing Popcaan in dad mode too, as Rihanna makes appearances on his pages during their father/ daughter outings and antics. The loyal Unruly and Gaza supporters have started the countdown, or as one fan put it, “Yes dadda dats it…with this video u we carry the song to heights” while the ladies keep assuring him that the trim definitely have a buzz. The youngster, who Popcaan affectionately refers to as his ‘Princess’, was seen hugging her dad wearing a huge grin herself and a blue graduation gown. Clad in a swank red blazer and sporting the new ‘buzz’ worthy hairdo, Popcaan posed for some sweet shots with his 11-year-old daughter Rihanna Sutherland. Popcaan’s daughter is now a prep school graduate, and he couldn’t be prouder. Lila Ike, Jesse Royal, Vybz Kartel, Skillibeng, Protoje, and Agent Sasco sent hearts, hugs, and crowns to make her feel recognized and special after all her hard work. i love you my princess??

?? The most special comment might have come from her father days before her graduation though, with a heartfelt caption below a photo of her just one week before Father’s Day. View this post on Instagram

you are the reason i started taking music serious, the reason i started working harder, one of my first motivation!! The deejay recently released a track called Buzz on the topic of his much-discussed haircut (which might have been prompted by his Princess’s graduation ceremony) for which a video is new due. Rhona, and the humorous exchanges of his provocation and her concerned scolding are some of our favorites. I love you my Princess,” Popcaan wrote. “You are the reason I started taking music serious, the reason I started working harder, one of my first motivation!! He also frequently features his mom, Ms.

You know I need the windows rolled down

Ben Platt – Everything I Did to Get to You (from Songland) Lyrics

Play this song
[Verse 1]
I’ll admit the fact that I
Settled for somebody
Just to fight the lonely
Put myself out on   the   line
Tried to change   the old me
Changin’ almost broke me
[Pre-Chorus]
Been   the life of the party
Done the worst I can do
Chasin’   love
That   was   pointless
‘Til it pointed   me to you
[Chorus]
All   the hearts I ever held
Just held me back
I’ve been bruised and burned
But somehow I’m intact
All the times I thought I might’ve
Reached the end
I’d do it all again
Everything I did to get to you (Everything, everything)
Everything I did to get to you (Everything, everything)
[Verse 2]
On the road to where we are
I think I might’ve lost me
Somewhere in the city
But you saw me from the start
You see the world that I see
And you don’t try to fix me
[Pre-Chorus]
Been the life of the party
Done the worst I can do
Chasin’ love
That was pointless
‘Til it pointed me to you
[Chorus]
All the hearts I ever held
Just held me back
I’ve been bruised and burned
But somehow I’m intact
All the times I thought I might’ve
Reached the end
I’d do it all again
Everything I did to get to you (Everything, everything)
Everything I did to get to you, ooh (Everything, everything)
Everything I did to get to you (Everything, everything)
Whoohoo, oooh (Everything, everything)

On the road to where we are
I think I might’ve lost me
Somewhere in the city

All the hearts I ever held
Just held me back
I’ve been bruised and burned
But somehow I’m intact
All the times I thought I might’ve
Reached the end
I’d do it all again
Everything I did to get to you (Everything, everything)
Everything I did to get to you (Everything, everything)
Everything I did for you

Hopsin – Kumbaya Lyrics

Come visit my shed
I live on the edge, let’s jump, shit, I’ll go first
Mmm, yikes, quite preposterous (Yeah)
White kids soaking up the hype up off it
Hi, I’m Hopsin, I’m obnoxious
I’ve been token like the guy from Boston
Watch me rise to top ten (Yeah)
You know what I mean? Give me a sign
‘Cause I got way too much shit on my mind
And I’ma get it all out
[Chorus]
Kumbaya, my Lord, I might say things that you might not support
When do I drop the torch? Ain’t no one like me
I’ma turn all of my haters to some overnight fiends
I done made a lot of money from exposing my grief (What?)
Flow catch bodies like it’s COVID-19, nigga
Bitch, listen, I’m exerting the gas fumes
I’m the asshole who goes to work in a bad mood (Yeah)
Me and my alter ego make a murderous rap group (Uh)
I’m handin’ beef to niggas like I’m servin’ a fast food (Yeah)
I should’ve been spazzed, now the burden has passed through
Haters wanna laugh at all the hurdles I ran through
But the word on the avenue (What?)
Is now they wanna watch UP
Like a fuckin’ pervert in the bathroom
Nigga, ew, yuck (Yuh)
The ladies always tell me I’m a real cunt (Yuh)
These wack motherfuckers, that’s a meal lunch (Yeah)
On every instrumental, I’ma spill guts
And I’m still nuts (Hello)
Like RoboCop, scrotum
I’m givin’ niggas Hell but I really hope I’m not goin’
And if I do, I’m pullin’ up with hoes in my foreign
While the Man above us watchin’ with his Coke and popcorn
[Pre-Chorus]
Well I guess I’m a villain, labeled as strange
Labeled a clown, labeled deranged
Labeled as someone you might put to shame
Labeled a freak, who’s unable to change
I’m sick in the head, I’m sick with the grind
I am not someone you casually find
Where is the light? Play this song
[Chorus]
Kumbaya, my Lord, I might say things that you might not support
When do I drop   the   torch? That’s another body off the market Bless my enemies,   which whom I mop the floor   with
It’s true, my thoughts are morbid
I’ma do my job, of course, shit
Can’t fit in my shoes, niggas wishin’ I lose
I’ma get it like, “Woo”
[Verse 1]
I done left it all behind me in Cali’
While yellin’ goodbye to my family
I had to do a little soul search (Yeah)
All of my demons kept on fightin’ and scrappin’
Inside of my mind, I was crashin’
Maybe I was having a growth spurt (Uh)
They tell me I should go out and mingle, it don’t work (What?)
I’ve contemplated on whether or not to smoke Purp (No)
Think you sick in the head? Give me a sign
‘Cause I got way too much shit on my mind
And I’ma get it all out
[Chorus]
Kumbaya, my Lord, I might say things that you might not support
When do I drop the torch? Bless my enemies, which whom I mop the floor with
It’s true, my thoughts are morbid
I’ma do my job, of course, shit
Can’t fit in my shoes, niggas wishin’ I lose
I’ma get it like, “Woo”
[Verse 2]
I been noticing a shift in the industry
Too many niggas who appear to be gritty
Flashin’ they nice jewels (What?)
Braggin’ about some pills and packin’ a rifle (What?)
You just gon’ be another rapper with it die soon (Boom)
That’s another body off the market
Rigor mortis seen him before police saw the carcass
Some of these niggas really ’bout it
They gon’ show you all the corners
Now your mamma gotta see you droppin’ slowly on a harness
Shit, it might be me next, I really mean it
The reject that you all love, I ain’t He-Man
Some niggas ain’t got a piss in pot they can pee in
They hate the planet so they come at you lookin’ for revenge
That’s why I gotta go to sleep with the nine tucked
Niggas creepin’ up, fuck it, I ain’t leavin’ survivors
One squeeze and your spine bust (Ugh)
Actually, no one shoot dirty corpse on my carpet
Get the fuck out of here
My attitude is that of a Hulk smash
Mixed with Tony Montana snortin’ bags of his coke stash
If it’s true that I’m a savage at cold rap
I might as well rock a white jacket and Pulp hat
Dissin’ me is like having your throat gagged
And fucked ’til your insides saggin’ and prolapse
Big and ‘Pac was a tragedy, no cap
But hearing me rap is like having ’em both back
Yeah, so how can you deny I’m not [?]
Livin’ on cloud nine, better believe the altitude is high
Niggas say, “The game’s better, Hopsin, now that you’ve arrived”
‘Bout to lace you motherfuckers with an album you can buy
Yes, I had to go retarded, I was dropped at birth (Yah)
Fuck all y’all, I’ma let my cock disperse
I got a constant urge to let the bombs emerge
And only time I’m worn out is when it’s Hopsin merch
[Pre-Chorus]
Well I guess I’m a villain, labeled as strange
Labeled a clown, labeled deranged
Labeled as someone you might put to shame
Labeled a freak, who’s unable to change
I’m sick in the head, I’m sick with the grind
I am not someone you casually find
Where is the light? Bless my enemies, which whom I mop the floor with
It’s true, my thoughts are morbid
I’ma do my job, of course, shit
Can’t fit in my shoes, niggas wishin’ I lose
I’ma get it like, “Woo”
[Outro]
Boom!

The Unification Ministry said South Korea will strive to promote peace while abiding by inter-Korean agreements.For years, conservative South Korean activists, including North Korean defectors living in the South, have floated huge balloons into North Korea carrying leaflets criticizing leader Kim Jong Un over his nuclear ambitions and human rights record. Some experts say he could take additional steps targeting South Korea, such as shutting down the liaison office or short-range weapons tests. Some experts say this shows the elevated political standing of Mr. Moon, who met Kim Jong Un three times in 2018, facilitated a flurry of high-profile meetings between Pyongyang and Washington, including the first summit between Mr. Moon to help it win sanctions relief but eventually got angry with him after Mr. The leafleting has sometimes triggered a furious response from North Korea, which bristles at any attempt to undermine its leadership.South Korea has typically let activists launch such balloons, citing their rights to freedom of speech, but has halted some attempts when North Korean warnings appeared to be serious.

Seoul, South Korea
North Korea said it was cutting off all communication channels with South Korea on Tuesday, a move experts say could signal Pyongyang has grown frustrated that Seoul has failed to revive lucrative inter-Korean economic projects and persuade the United States to ease sanctions.The North’s Korean Central News Agency said all cross-border communication lines would be cut off at noon in “the first step of the determination to completely shut down all contact means with South Korea and get rid of unnecessary things.”When South Korean officials tried to contact their North Korean counterparts via several channels after the North’s announcement on Tuesday, the North Koreans didn’t answer, according to the South Korean government.North Korea has cut communications in the past – not replying to South Korean phone calls or faxes – and then restored those channels when tensions eased. Kim’s sister. Moon’s engagement policy say North Korea had initially expected Mr. Citing "leafleting," North Korea has cut off all communication with the South.

Kim’s sister and former hard-line military intelligence chief Kim Yong Chol. Kim’s sister Kim Yo Jong called defectors involved in recent leafleting “human scum” and “mongrel dogs,” and she threatened to permanently shut down a liaison office and a jointly run factory park, both in the North, as well as nullify a 2018 inter-Korean military agreement that had aimed to reduce tensions.North Korea’s latest moves will further set back South Korean President Moon Jae-in’s push for inter-Korean reconciliation.”The North Koreans have been trying to find something they can use to express their dissatisfaction and distrust against South Korea. Kim may be reluctant to do something like stage a nuclear or missile test due to concerns it could completely scuttle diplomacy with Washington.Some see Tuesday’s move as a sign that North Korea is feeling the pinch financially and that its already battered economy perhaps deteriorated further when the coronavirus pandemic forced it to shut its border with China, the North’s biggest trading partner.North Korea said the decision to sever communications was made by Mr. Kim returned from the second Trump summit empty handed.How far Mr. And they’ve now got the leaftleting issue, so I don’t think we can simply resolve [tensions] even if we address issues related to the leafleting,” said Kim Dong-yub, an analyst from Seoul’s Institute for Far Eastern Studies.He said the North Korean statement also appeared aimed at strengthening internal unity and signaling the North’s resolve not to make concessions in nuclear talks.Mr. Kim is willing to go in stoking tensions is unclear.

However, they say Mr. Moon and suspended virtually all inter-Korean cooperation since a second Kim-Trump summit in early 2019 fell apart due to disputes over U.S.-led sanctions.North Korea has urged Mr. Kim and President Donald Trump in June 2018.But North Korea has increasingly turned the cold shoulder to Mr. In 2014, North Korean troops opened fire at propaganda balloons flying toward their territory, triggering an exchange of fire that caused no known causalities.North Korea began taking issue with the leafleting again last week.Mr. Why the cold shoulder? North Korea has been accused at times of deliberately creating tensions to bolster internal unity or to signal its frustration over a lack of progress in nuclear talks with Washington.In its announcement, North Korea said Tuesday’s move was a response to South Korea’s failure to stop activists from floating anti-Pyongyang leaflets across their border. It’s a tactic used by Kim Jong Un’s government to escalate pressure on South Korea for its failure to persuade the United States to ease sanctions, experts say.

Hong Kong
Hundreds of people marched in Hong Kong’s streets on Tuesday to mark a year since the start of anti-government protests, as the leader of the semi-autonomous city called for peace and stability.”Everyone has to learn their lesson, including the Hong Kong government,” Chief Executive of Hong Kong Carrie Lam told reporters. Loading… Riot police later charged at a group of protesters, deploying pepper spray and tackling some to the ground. Police closed some streets and walkways ahead of possible protests.The June 9, 2019, march was in opposition to a proposed extradition bill that would have allowed people in the former British colony, which has its own legal system, to be sent to mainland China to face trial. Organizers pegged the turnout at more than a million people, while police estimated the crowd at 240,000.In the ensuing months of protests, violent clashes broke out at times between protesters and the police, leading to accusations of police brutality and sparking protester demands for an independent inquiry into police behavior.There was a lull in protests during the coronavirus outbreak early this year, but as infections have ebbed, protesters have returned to the streets to demonstrate against an imminent national security law for Hong Kong as well as a recently approved law that makes it illegal to insult the Chinese national anthem.Critics and protesters say the national security law is a blow to the “one country, two systems” framework following the handover of Hong Kong from Britain to China in 1997, which promised the city freedoms not found on the mainland.China blames the protests in part on foreign intervention and is hastening to enact the national security law aimed at curbing secessionist and subversive activities in Hong Kong.Hong Kong’s problems are a result of the opposition and foreign allies “attempting to turn Hong Kong into an independent or semi-independent political entity and a pawn to contain China’s development,” Zhang Xiaoming, deputy director of the Chinese Cabinet’s Hong Kong and Macao Affairs Office, said in a speech posted on the office’s website on Monday.”The more the bottom line of national security is consolidated, the greater the space will be for Hong Kong to leverage its advantages under ‘one country, two systems,'” Mr. Hong Kong marks anniversary of pro-democracy movement

June 9, 2019 was the start of the longest-lasting, pro-democracy movement in Hong Kong since 1997. “Hong Kong cannot bear that kind of chaos, and the people of Hong Kong want a stable and peaceful environment to be able to live and work here happily.”Ms. Lam did not elaborate on what lessons should be learned.Hundreds of protesters marched in Hong Kong’s central district on Tuesday evening and shouted slogans including “Hong Kong independence, the only way out” and “Fight to the end.”They marched despite police warnings that force could be used to disperse participants and that they faced up to five years in prison. The promise – and limits – of police taking a kneeTuesday is the one-year anniversary of a huge march through central Hong Kong that grew into a pro-democracy movement that saw protesters break into the legislative building and take to the streets every weekend for months.”The mass protest on 9 June last year has been etched in the collective memory of Hongkongers,” the Civil Human Rights Front, which organized the event, wrote in a Facebook post on Tuesday. “It also marks the beginning of our togetherness in defending our beloved city.”Protesters also gathered in shopping malls to mark the anniversary at lunchtime, holding up signs and banners reading “Liberate Hong Kong” and singing protest songs.

While delivering PPE to a remote hospital in western Russia, the group’s leader Anastasia Vasilyeva was detained by police and reportedly abused for allegedly disobeying a local ordinance. Petersburg. “They do mind what they see as alarmist and critical comments that emphasize how bad things are. “When this disaster struck, it caught Russia unprepared, as it did most countries, and it created many new challenges that private initiatives stepped in to meet.”Making a differenceOne of those was the Zhivoy (Living) Foundation, which normally helps hospitals and patients with severe medical problems with logistical and other forms of assistance. Agadzhanova says. Ideally, I think the authorities would prefer that charities act, but do so quietly.”Russia’s government has actually promoted the creation of an official volunteer movement, #MyVmeste (Us Together), which organizes companies and individuals to help out with things like coronavirus hotlines, free legal consultations, and facilities for remote work and distance learning. One of its most successful services has been to organize armies of mostly youthful volunteers to assist elderly people in self-isolation by buying and delivering groceries and medicines, and helping out with other necessary chores.Angelina Fitoz, a prominent Moscow lawyer, is offering her services pro bono to doctors who can’t keep up with payments when they get sick, or are having trouble receiving promised hazard bonuses and overtime pay. Petersburg, informed her about the immense challenges they were facing in the fight against the coronavirus pandemic. “I just want to help doctors, one professional to another, and not make a big deal out of it,” she says.Aliona Doletskaya, former editor of Vogue-Russia and a prolific author and TV personality, is one of many Russian celebrities who’ve come up with their own ways to help.

Many existing charities quickly repurposed their activities to help beleaguered state medical services speed and improve their response to the crisis.“This aspect of social life in Russia, the charitable sector, is relatively new and generally overlooked,” says Masha Lipman, editor of Counterpoint, a journal of Russian affairs published by George Washington University. Korneva set up a YouTube channel and began offering her reminiscences of the war in order to raise money to help the families of about 10 local medical workers, whom she describes as “being on the front line this time.” She says a British friend, World War II veteran Capt. They range from filling holes in the existing public health system, to circumventing bureaucratic bottlenecks, to just helping ease the plight of vulnerable people trapped in quarantine. “Hospital managers were left to either pretend there was no problem, or risk their jobs by publicly calling for help.”Groups like the Zhivoy Foundation, and the private citizens’ rescue service Sozidaniye (Creation), slashed through the red tape by locating supplies of PPE sitting in warehouses or shops, buying it, and delivering it straight to the hospitals that needed it.“The authorities neither helped us nor hampered us,” says Yelena Smirnova, head of Sozidaniye. Korneva is not alone among Russians in taking the coronavirus pandemic as a clarion call. “They do mind what they see as alarmist and critical comments that emphasize how bad things are.”Experts say the government is now learning to welcome charities, and it might well leave permanent changes in Russia’s social landscape after the crisis has passed.“I hope the world will become a different place after this,” says World War II veteran Zinaida Korneva, who has been fundraising for medical workers’ families in St. Korneva’s daughter and granddaughter, both doctors in St. No paywall.

Hundreds of private initiatives to aid in the fight against COVID-19 have sprung up in the past couple of months, ranging from filling holes in the existing public health system to just helping ease the plight of vulnerable people trapped in quarantine.This has caused tensions to arise between the new charity sector, whose assistance is genuinely welcomed by the public, and authorities who can become irate at activities that highlight the deficiencies of state services.

Now it’s an invisible enemy, and there is no vaccine. The group’s director, Viktoria Agadzhanova, says that when the pandemic struck many hospitals began to adjust to treat COVID-19, suspending their other regular operations.“We realized that in order to resume our usual work we needed first to help defeat this pandemic threat,” she says.One of the biggest problems in the early stages, she says, was that doctors and hospitals were unable to directly order supplies of personal protective equipment (PPE) and other critical gear. )

Patachou – La Complainte De La Butte Lyrics

En haut de la rue St-Vincent
Un poète et une inconnue
S’aimèrent l’espace d’un instant
Mais il ne l’a jamais revue
Cette chanson il composa
Espérant que son inconnue
Un matin d’printemps l’entendra
Quelque part au coin d’une rue
La lune trop blême
Pose un diadème
Sur tes cheveux roux
La lune trop rousse
De gloire éclabousse
Ton jupon plein d’trous
La lune trop pâle
Caresse l’opale
De tes yeux blasés
Princesse de la rue
Soit la bienvenue
Dans mon cœur blessé
Les escaliers de la butte sont durs aux miséreux
Les ailes des moulins protègent les amoureux
Petite mandigote
Je sens ta menotte
Qui cherche ma main
Je sens ta poitrine
Et ta taille fine
J’oublie mon chagrin
Je sens sur tes lèvres
Une odeur de fièvre
De gosse mal nourri
Et sous ta caresse
Je sens une ivresse
Qui m’anéantit
Les escaliers de la butte sont durs aux miséreux
Les ailes des moulins protègent les amoureux
Mais voilà qu’il flotte
La lune se trotte
La princesse aussi
Sous le ciel sans lune
Je pleure à la brune
Mon rêve évanoui

Cielo Razzo – De Caer Lyrics

Caera la noche y antes de caer.. Y asi se termina una vaga sensacion
Ese rayo fue el disfraz del dia
Un nudo de alucinacion, la persiana y su rumor
Tu silueta se esfumo
Caera la noche y antes de caer.. Caera la noche y antes de caer.. Es tan inerte este silencio
Que trae olores de otros años
Se fue callando el gato viejo
Fueron los ultimos tejados.. Solo las grietas de la calle
Dibujan vida en la tarde
Y se aparecen recordando
Las mil figuras que pasaron
Ahi vas corriendo y sos impura
Dejas la vida en otro lado
Y te apareces recordando
Las mil figuras que pasaron
Caera la noche y antes de caer.. Caera la noche y antes de caer.. La tarde es alma de ventanas
Las grietas nunca dan revancha
Y en este duelo gana el tiempo
Y mi bostezo es un desgarro
Caera la noche y antes de caer.. Y asi se termina una vaga sensacion
Ese rayo fue el disfraz del dia
Un nudo de alucinacion, la persiana y su rumor
Tu silueta se esfumo
Y asi termina, la ventana enmudecio
Ese mundo se perdio y ahora son trozos
Lugar de ruinas, dejo todo esto
Pero siento que vuelvo a empezar

Izzy Stradlin – Beat Up Lyrics

Got him beat up, got him beat up-eh
Got him beat up, got him beat up-eh
Yes they told him
Yes they told him not to go
As they told him that he’d been warned twice before
Somehow he don’t get it, anyway
Got him beat up, got him beat up
Got him beat up, got him beat up
Got him beat up, got him beat up
Yes they told him
Yes they told him not to go
It make no difference when you’re talking to a wall
Guess he’ll have to learn the hard way, yeh
Got him beat up, got him beat up
Got him beat up, got him beat up
Got him beat up, got him beat up
Got him beat up, got him beat up
