Kane Brown – Homesick lyrics

Dancin’ in the kitchen
You singing my favorite songs
Swinging on the front porch
Just laughing at the dogs
Now you swear you love me more
When you’re whispering goodnight
All those little moments are every reason why
I’m homesick
This feeling that I’m feeling
No, we don’t quit
It’s like half of me is missing
Heaven knows it that all I wanna do
Is be alone with your brown eyes all tangled up
Just holdin onto you tonight
Until the morning
Baby that’s the damn truth
If home is where the heart is
Then I’m homesick for you
Well it says Kane Brown
On a sign with a line out the door
Sold out some little town
I’ve never been before
Yeah, they’re screaming my name
This is what we dreamed about
But out here singing about you, baby, all I think about
Is how I’m homesick
This feeling that I’m feeling
No, we don’t quit
It’s like half of me is missing
Heaven knows it that all I wanna do
Is be alone with your brown eyes all tangled up
Just holdin onto you tonight
Until the morning
Baby that’s the damn truth
If home is where the heart is
Then I’m homesick for you
Homesick for you
Yeah, yeah
I’m homesick
This feeling that I’m feeling
No, we don’t quit
It’s like half of me is missing
Heaven knows it that all I wanna do
Is be alone with your brown eyes, just tangled up
Just holdin’ onto you tonight
Until the morning
Baby, that’s the damn truth
If home is where the heart is
I’m homesick for you
I’m homesick for you
Yeah, yeah

INNA – No Help lyrics

No no, I don’t make a difference
Say what you want about me, así, así
I don’t need no permission
I run the night from Belize to Italy
I got a Coca-Cola but I don’t want no chaser
Drinks on me, you know how that works
Everybody wanna see what I’m about to do first
Watch me and do not disturb
Ooh, I get by myself, can’t describe how good I feel
Ooh, I do me so well, you know I don’t need no help
When I get by myself, can’t describe how good I feel
Yeah, I do me so well, you know I don’t need no help
While you’re all on my body
Sé que quieres de mí, de mí, de mí
Baby, Imma be honest
Estoy pensando en tí, en tí, en tí
I got a Coca-Cola but I don’t want no chaser
Drinks on me, you know how that works
Everybody wanna see what I’m about to do first
Watch me and do not disturb
Ooh, I get by myself, can’t describe how good I feel
Ooh, I do me so well, you know I don’t need no help
When I get by myself, can’t describe how good I feel
Yeah, I do me so well, you know I don’t need no help
Eyes on my body, you want it, you want it
But this is the night that I’m gonna be on my own
Hands off my body, my body, don’t hurry up
Cause this is the night that I’m gonna be on my own
Ooh, I get by myself, can’t describe how good I feel
Ooh, I do me so well, you know I don’t need no help
When I get by myself, can’t describe how good I feel
Yeah, I do me so well, you know I don’t need no help

Chris Brown – All The Time lyrics

(Remember)
You know you was the best, you was the best
Ain’t no pretender, oh
Doing things you said you never would, would, would
I call you late at night, I ain’t no good, good, good
Let me eat that pussy, that’s my pussy diet
You know most these niggas pussy they can’t try it
I think about you all the time, time
Got me right here waitin’
I think about you all the time (all the time, all the time)
Got me right here waitin’
You ain’t know you was my baby (that’s my baby)
Even though you drive me crazy
Bet you ain’t know you my baby
And you know you drive me crazy
If you don’t want me, baby
Why my number never blocked? Tell me why, girl don’t lie, cause I want this shit to stop
All this negative energy
We don’t need to be we’re not enemies
Only time we get rough
Baby when I’m fucking it up
Giving you all that real love
Putting in overtime, working real hard
I’m tryna steal your heart
It’s not always about the diamonds and ice that I buy
It’s just a little milestone for a life time
I think about you all the time, time
Got me right here waitin’
I think about you all the time
Got me right here waitin’
You ain’t know you was my baby
Even though you drive me crazy
Bet you ain’t know you my baby
And you know you drive me crazy I think about you all the time, time
Got me right here waitin’
I think about you all the time
Got me right here waitin’
You ain’t know you was my baby (that’s my baby)
Even though you drive me crazy
Bet you ain’t know you my baby
And you know you drive me crazy
She run up a check, fuck a Patek
I run up them digits
I fuck up the bed, left it a mess, do you remember?

Gang Starr – Take It Personal Lyrics

‘Cause when I pay you back, I’ll be hurting you
And this ain’t no threat so take it personal
[Interlude]
Take it personal
Take it personal
Take it personal
[Verse 2]
Rap is an art, you can’t own no loops
It’s how you hook ’em up and the rhyme style, troop
So don’t even think you could say someone bit
Off of your weak beat, come on, you need to quit
I flip lines and rhymes that never sound like yours
There ought to be laws against you yapping your jaws
Originality overflows in me
And the truth is, that you wish you could live the
Life I live and kick the lyrics I kick
But bear in mind that you can’t think this quick
So Premier drops beats for me to say verses to
And if I sound doper, then take it personal
[Interlude]
Take it personal
Take it personal
Take it personal
Take it personal
Take it personal
Take it personal
[Verse 3]
Don’t be mad ’cause I don’t come around the way
Like I used to, I don’t have time these days
I’m keeping busy making power moves
And don’t try to say I don’t remember you
You shouldn’t let your jealousy show like that
I stopped coming by ’cause of the way you act
Telling my business to kids I don’t even know
You’re like a daytime talk show, and that’s low
So you can tell everyone, that I’m jerking you
And if you don’t like it, kid, take it personal
[Outro]
Take it personal
Take it personal
Take it personal
Take it personal [Intro]
Take it personal
Take it personal
Take it personal
[Verse 1]
I never thought that you would crab me
Undermine me, and backstab me
But I can see clearly now the rain is gone
The pain is gone but what you did was still wrong
There was a few times I needed your support
But you tried to play me like an indoor sport
Like racquetball, tennis, pool, whatever
All I know is that you attempted to be clever
Nevertheless, cleverness can’t impress
‘Cause now you’ve been exposed like a person undressed
And I could see through you, ’cause I’m the Guru
And what you gonna do when I start to step to you?

Mr Chapman said the group would help to make sure their dream became a reality.”It’s not just the caravan. (Facebook: Homeless Helpers)
“I got mum to watch them, but she said she couldn’t afford to just go out and buy one [caravan].”She then taught me about fundraising and I planned out the name and everything.”Ms Brown said she wasn’t sure at first how far her son would take the idea.”I wondered how long it would last, but he kept at me for nearly six months about doing something for the homeless.”I thought I’d better get in and do something.”Dreaming of a caravanTogether, the mother-and-son team feed the homeless community every few days from a small four-door car.

Ashton enjoys preparing food at home to deliver to the homeless community. We have to remember that they are towing this around and we need to make sure they’re doing it safely,” he said.”We’ll go through the whole exercise and make sure it’s spot on and safe.” While most 11-year-olds request a party for their birthday, one Brisbane boy has asked to spend the day raising money to start a charity for the homeless.Ashton Brown started Homeless Helpers this year with the help of his mother Jacqui.The year 6 student from Goodna, south of Brisbane, is on a mission to raise money for a caravan that he hopes will enable him to transport food hampers, first-aid kits and provide health care around south-east Queensland.The charity began after Ashton saw videos on YouTube. “I saw videos [on YouTube] about people helping the homeless and I decided I really wanted to chip in,” he told ABC Radio Brisbane’s Craig Zonca and Rebecca Levingston.

Loaded with toiletry packs, food hampers and first-aid kits, they help those in need.”Our main goal is to have a nice big caravan that we can have a barber’s chair, hair washes and first-aid kits to hand out and a doctor every now and again,” Ms Brown said.”But we need the room to do that.”She said Ashton could often be found in their kitchen cooking meals to hand out each week.Along with garage sales and car washes, he has raised more than $10,000 for the caravan.Answering the call for helpCaravanning Queensland, a peak lobby group for caravan owners and dealers, called ABC Radio Brisbane to offer Ashton help.”We heard Ashton’s story and we want to make sure they get what they want, and we want to help get it properly on the road,” chief executive Ron Chapman said.”Our members who also heard the story are keen to get onboard and we want to make this a reality.”We’ll meet with the family and we’ll help to get it on the road quickly.”

It’s taken 50 years and $225m to save this wild coastline

The Dangermonds stumped up $225 million to buy the 10,000 hectare tract of land and save it for all time by donating it to The Nature Conservancy, which raises money to buy up tracts of threatened land all over the world, including Australia. It is a long way from Silicon Valley, and although Mr Dangermond is known as the “godfather of the digital map” among those who are in the know, many have never heard of the pair despite their extraordinary reach. When told of the donation, The Nature Conservancy’s Mike Bell “didn’t believe what I was hearing”.Reaction to the deal in conservation circles has been ecstatic; it comes at a time when the Trump administration is seeking to roll back environmental protection. “It was a big news for conservation, and conservation hadn’t been getting a lot of good news lately,” Mr Bell said.”There’s been a lot of controversy about our national monuments, and about a lot of environmental protection regulation that we had in place. “We just simply made a start-up,” Mr Dangermond said.”And it’s just very gradually grown up to become, I guess you would call it the world leader in geographic information systems today.” ‘No excuse for not making good policy’Esri’s systems create complex, layered maps that are used by governments and business across the globe to help visually interpret problems and issues.Its software is used by about 350,000 private and government organisations to predict flash floods, ease traffic snarls, help the homeless or plot the location of the next Starbucks.If you looked, you would find its grids criss-crossing Australia. (Foreign Correspondent)
Mr Bell was central to clinching the deal, when an opportunity came up to buy the land from a hedge fund that wanted to develop the site — an old ranch made up of 10,000 hectares of pristine coast and a hinterland of oak forests, hills, canyons and grasslands. “We only have a limited amount of time left to do these things, so I think we have to let people know,” Ms Dangermond said.Her husband said “time is running out, it’s late in the day — it’s not dark yet, but it’s late”. Spanish explorers called it Point Conception, but for the Native American Chumash it was a place for the end of life, its waters the portal to enter the next world.Where the warm waters from the south meet the cold northern currents, biodiversity explodes.”It’s truly a miracle that this landscape, this property exists in its natural form still,” Mr Bell said. A reclusive billionaire couple has paid $225 million to save an iconic slice of Californian coastline from development, in the biggest ever donation to the global environmental group The Nature Conservancy. “There’s an incredible amount of biodiversity here, an extraordinary set of natural communities.” The Dangermonds are no left-wing ideologues.Their environmental passion is founded on the hard data that drives the digital mapping which they pioneered. They were students — broke but determined to leave their mark. “I think the lesson that Jack and Laura put out here to people is that protecting our world isn’t a spectator sport,” Mr Bell said.”Everyone needs to get involved, everyone needs to be a leader.” The Dangermonds are in their 70s. Key points:The Dangermonds bought the 10,000 hectare tract of land for $225 millionThey then donated the site to The Nature ConservancyThe couple started their company, Esri, with $2,000 in savings, but it is now worth $5.5 billion
Jack and Laura Dangermond made their money in tech, and their company Esri now controls almost half of the world’s market in geographic information systems — the data-rich maps used in all kinds of research for business and government.The usually media-shy couple agreed to talk to Foreign Correspondent about their donation because they want to inspire others to make a contribution too — large or small. “I want everybody in Australia getting this idea,” Mr Dangermond said.”I want those who really have large means to look at the amazing places in Australia before it’s too late.

And everybody else in Australia to plant one more tree, protect one more thing, to play at all levels.” The Dangermonds first encountered the land on their honeymoon, when they camped out in a small tent. (Foreign Correspondent)
The land the couple saved will never be developed or turned into a national park for public access.It is a preserve, like a living laboratory. They started their company with about $US1,500 ($2,000) in savings. “I like maps. “Some phenomena are changing in such a way that it’s not going to be sustainable on the planet to live here anymore, and then we’ve got to be able to take action.”And it’s not just one person doing action, it’s not just the president or premier or somebody like that taking action, it’s really us as a body taking action.” A map of the Jack and Laura Dangermond Preserve. It is now valued by Forbes at about $5.5 billion. “Having all that information available to policy makers leaves them no excuse for not making good policy,” Ms Dangermond said.Mr Dangermond added: “If we have all the science there and people are still making stupid decisions, then you can call politicians or decision makers on the carpet, so to speak.”

“We both fell in love with that place,” Mr Dangermond said.Over the next 50 years the couple built their fortune, while the land they so loved became threatened by housing developments that were spreading rapidly up and down the coast. They’re a kind of language, the language of geography, the language of human activities, the language of understanding,” Mr Dangermond said, speaking at the headquarters of their company in the low-key town of Redlands, California. “This was a piece of good news, and it was a big piece of good news.”

App makes it possible for vision-impaired people to see into space

(CSIRO: E. Mellinger (Central Michigan University); scientific imager, E. Looking up at the night sky is something many of us take for granted, but when you’re vision impaired it’s a wonder that is out of reach.But two Brisbane engineering students have made it their mission to allow anyone, no matter their eyesight, to see space.Yuma Decaux, who is vision impaired, and Jake Dean are the brains behind Astreos, an app that will enable users to move their phones around the night sky and use different senses to understand the location of planets, stars and comets.The app, the first of its kind, uses NASA’s Horizon system that tracks hundreds of thousands of objects in the sky, including satellites.

The team also recently won a James Dyson Award for a digital tape measure they created.”You know when you walk into a room and you know and understand where things are, we’re trying to do the same and increase the spread of understanding for those people,” Mr Dean said.”With the app it’s about 70 per cent science and 30 per cent art and design.”The team launched a test flight on their website and encouraged people to try the app.”We’ll be updating it with new features and we’re after feedback on how we can make it better,” Mr Decaux said. Mr Decaux, who was left blind more than 10 years ago after a misfired firework was launched at him, said the app was based on “spatial understanding”.”When you’re blind, you don’t make any acknowledgment to what’s around, we only know what’s immediately around us in our immediate space,” he said.”The app gives us a feeling of where planets are located using both sound and textile dimensions.”Mr Dean said the app created representations in a “3D audio environment with visuals on top”.”We’re trying to avoid the Wikipedia page — you know when you load up a Wikipedia page and there’s too much information there at once,” he told ABC Radio Brisbane’s Craig Zonca and Rebecca Levingston.”We’re trying to make it bite-sized and interesting, and one of the other really cool things is that when you look up into a constellation you will be able to travel to it and see it in 3D.”It’s incredible as NASA have all that data available and we’ve pulled it and started to represent it in an ergonomic way.”Adding an extra dimension through sensesThe name Astreos comes from the Greek god of dusk, Astraeus, and the Greek goddess of dawn, Eos.Mr Decaux said the team combined the names as they wanted to represent the continuous cycle of dawn and dusk.”We’ve spoken to astrophysicists to see what’s important for education and entertainment,” he said. Carretti (CSIRO); radio data – S-PASS team; optical image – A. Bressert (CSIRO))
“With the app, I’m now aware and have a mental map of where all the constellations are, and not only facts and where they’ve appeared, but also at a certain time of day I know what stars are in certain areas.”It gives me that extra dimension to understand what’s going on outside of the sun.”He said as a vision-impaired person, the app was important not only to him, but to many.”I think it’s really important for vision-impaired people, especially kids to be able to enter the STEM subjects as there are many things a blind person can do, and that includes science,” Mr Decaux said.Bird sounds inspired soundscape for spaceThe duo are part of technology start-up OSeyeris, which aims to create products to help make life better for those without sight using accessible technology.While designing the app, Mr Decaux said bushwalking helped with the sound design.”I created one of the intuitions after I went bushwalking and I heard birds that made a boing sound, so I paid more attention and I could understand then the tapestry of sound needed for the app and space,” he said.”These senses or intuitions are things we’re still looking for as there are many other methods with other dimensions to make the stars be there for vision-impaired people.”

There will also be special provisions and extra support for students who need them.The English Literary Studies exam has been chosen as the first and only test to go electronic this year due to the large volume of writing involved. “I thought it was a lot better than written exams — you know we do a lot of work throughout the year without books,” he said.”Everything is pretty much online now or just on Word, so it’s more familiar.”Phoebe Halt, 18, also felt positive about the new exam style.”You do have that freedom to do whatever you want so, like, highlighting the text and then copying that, which saves a lot of time compared to paper,” she said. The SACE Board has plans to bring more subjects online next year, such as Modern History and Psychology, but says maths and science-based subjects that use symbols will need more refining.The new format is part of a partnership between the SACE Board and third-party vendor SONET Systems.The final examination will be worth 15 per cent of a student’s overall mark in the subject.Professor Westwell said no student would be disadvantaged by the new format.”As per current process, students who need additional support can apply to their school for special provisions, with each case being assessed on a case-by-case basis,” he said.”If there is a prolonged period of connection outage, students will be able to complete the examination using a like-for-like paper version.”The English Literary Studies electronic and paper version examination will be marked and moderated online. (ABC News: Candice Prosser)
Students welcome ‘more familiar’ way of workingAt Brighton Secondary School in Adelaide’s west, Year 12 students are among those sitting trial electronic exams.Angus Hampel, 17, said he was pleased with the new model. “There’s no doubt in my mind that other states and territories will follow this lead that South Australia has taken.”

Students will use either school-issued devices or their own to participate in the electronic exam. Brighton Secondary School assistant principal Tristan Kouwenhoven said electronic exams better reflected the way students worked on an everyday basis.”The students are now being able to produce work in the same way they would throughout the year,” he said.”I’ve seen the work that the SACE Board has put into this and there has certainly been a lot of thought that’s gone into it, it’s been a long time coming but that’s in order to be able to roll this out without issues.”To be honest, if we put students in front of something a couple of years ago when the technologies and the systems weren’t ready, that would’ve been a step backwards, I think, and it’s the right time to roll it out and it seems like it’s been well executed.”

How will the electronic exams work?Students will use either school-issued devices or their own to participate in the electronic exam.A locked-down examination browser prevents internet access and spellcheck capabilities. Key points:For the first time, Year 12 students will sit an electronic final examMore than 2,000 from SA and the NT will take part in the trial for English Literary StudiesStudents and teachers have endorsed the idea
More than 2,000 students from South Australia and selected schools in the Northern Territory using the South Australian Certificate of Education (SACE) curriculum will sit the first electronic exam on November 7, which has been chosen for the subject of English Literary Studies.The shift towards computers and away from traditional pen-and-paper assessments has been a long time in the making, and SACE Board chief executive Martin Westwell said he expected it to become the norm around Australian schools in the near future.”We’re very excited in South Australia that we are the first to offer electronic exams and really taking a lead, I think nationally,” Professor Westwell said.”The partnership with schools has been really important in that — we’re all keen to make sure it works because this will be better for our students.
