Business people. The Timchenko Foundation will support local communities in the outback

More than half of Russia's population lives outside the big cities. There are no huge budgets, and often there are no enterprises either. But there are initiative people — they unite in communities and themselves transform life around. The Timchenko Foundation presented its new strategy.

Uncle Petya Courchevel and others like him

People of action — Who are they? Are only businessmen or top managers who “privatized” in recent years, this phraseological unit? There are, after all, completely different people — they are out of business, but they are engaged in no less important matters. Each, for his part, makes life in his town or village better, more interesting, richer.

Lives in the Udmurt village of Debesy Sergey Vasiliev, works as a dispatcher for a local power plant, and plays chess in his spare time. No, not only for his own pleasure, but also trains the local children, teaches fellow villagers to teach chess, so that they also study with children. Through his (and now his associates) efforts, the whole of Udmurtia began to play chess with pleasure, and Debesy turned into its chess capital.

Pyotr Grigoriev, 78-year-old pensioner from Sorochinsk, Orenburg region — former engineer. Therefore, to this day, he is making something. Countrymen began to call him “Uncle Petya Courchevel” after he and his friends created a ski base there with their own hands. A lift was built on a slope suitable for descent. Both children and pensioners ride — free and healthy. True, Uncle Petya first checks their school grades for children — and allows only good and excellent students.

Marina Kabakovafrom the village of Kyzym, Beloyarsky District, Khanty-Mansiysk Autonomous Okrug — Yugra — museum worker. At some point, she decided that the traditional culture of the Khanty could bring the village out of depression. With small steps, involving local residents and like-minded people, she was able to create an ethnopark where folk rituals and crafts are revived, where national holidays are held with the participation of even the smallest Kyzyms, where tourists come, providing additional income for the park.

Yulia Buldakova— from Tulun, Irkutsk region, the same one that the whole country learned about a few years ago when a terrible flood occurred there. She and her associates participated in the restoration of the city and breathed new life into it — revive the glass industry. In Soviet times, there was a large glass factory here, which provided the inhabitants with work, and the whole country — glass goods. In the 1990s, it went bankrupt and gradually collapsed. Julia found masters who did not forget the secrets of glass making. On the ruins of the factory, he collects glass “ingots”, which are used to make a variety of products — brooches, pendants, artistic dishes. Glass has become a “brand” again cities, a museum and a workshop have appeared, where they create new masterpieces and show guests how they are made.

Father of many children Yuri Zmeikovfrom Ryazan, he brings up both his own and adopted children. Knowing how difficult it is, he organized the Association of Foster Parents. And recently he became the director of the new Center for Family and Childhood in the village of Polyany, Ryazan Region, where children and their parents can receive support, as well as attend various circles and sections.

The Elena and Gennady Charitable Foundation supports such extraordinary people in business Timchenko. All of them at different times received grants from the foundation, and now they have become the heroes of the film almanac “People of Action”. Directed by Vladimir Golovnevwith great love for the characters, subtle humor and high professionalism, he created and combined 5 short stories into one documentary.

Together with the heroes of the film, other “people of action” who came to Moscow from different regions of the country watched it in one breath. It is a pity that there are no such heroes of our time and their stories on our federal TV channels. After all, they deserve to be known about, and their results would inspire others and encourage them to start doing business too.

In the meantime, the film is posted on RuTube.

Active communities of small territories

The people gathered in the hall, — these are mainly long-term partners of the fund, its friends and beneficiaries. It was to them that Chairman of the Supervisory Board Ksenia Frankand CEO of the fund Maria Morozova presented the new strategy on September 15.

Over the 12 years of operation, the Timchenko Foundation has supported 4,461 projects with a total budget of RUB 6.9 billion. They were carried out in 80 regions of the country and were carried out as part of the strategic programs: “Older Generation”, “Sport”, “Family and Children”, “Culture”. 

General Director of the Timchenko Foundation Maria Morozova presented the results of 12 years of work. Photo: Timchenko Foundation

In the course of the work, it became obvious that attention should be paid to small areas, where even small projects give impetus to development. It became clear that it is important to support local communities, because it is together that people achieve impressive results. It became clear that local activists are a good support in the regions.

There have also been external changes — for example, a number of topics that the foundation started were taken over by the state and the non-profit sector. And the new challenges facing the country also require a review of actions. For these reasons, the fund decided that it was time to reconsider the strategy.

“We believe in a society in which every person has the opportunity to live with dignity in an atmosphere of cooperation and mutual support. We go where there are the least resources, we solve complex social problems. We create conditions for the development and support of those who treat people around them responsibly, acutely feel their problems and spare no effort to improve their lives, — this is the updated mission of the foundation, which was voiced by Maria Morozova.

Ksenia Frank, Chairman of the Supervisory Board of the Timchenko Foundation, spoke about the new strategy. Photo: Timchenko Foundation

Now the fund will focus on work in small areas (up to 200 thousand inhabitants). There, families' incomes are 30% less than in the city, the lack of infrastructure is growing, and people are leaving. But those who remain, not wanting to join the flow of the metropolis, — much closer to each other, and this helps to form active and ready-to-do communities. 

Further work of the foundation will be carried out in two directions: “Care in the immediate environment”; and Child and Adolescent Development. Focus — on vulnerable older people and families, children and adolescents. 

Local communities, on whose potential the Timchenko Foundation stakes, can do a lot, including helping those who are close to them and need help. And they know it better than social services — because everyone is on the lookout. The pandemic has clearly demonstrated what a powerful potential lies in them. 

This means that communities are able to help families in crisis cope with the problem so that their children stay at home, and not placed in social institutions. Now in the country, 20% of families (3.5 million) need help, but, unfortunately, they do not always receive it in a timely manner, according to the fund, so the problems are aggravated, and children can even be taken away by guardianship authorities: 28 thousand children today are temporarily placed in social institutions.

Such communities can also help the elderly. After all, 53% of people over 65 in our country are lonely, some have poor eyesight and cannot buy food, some do not go out in winter, afraid to fall, and the majority do not have enough strength to do the cleaning or chop wood. But only 3.6% of older people in need receive support from social services.

It's all — about the first direction of further work. And within the framework of the second direction — “Development of children and adolescents” — the fund will help the younger generation to fully develop in local communities. After all, more than half of all schoolchildren in the country study in small areas where there are not enough “significant adults”, high-quality additional education and leisure. By supporting projects in education and sports, training mentors, and involving local communities in working with children and adolescents, the foundation will help change this situation. 

Ksenia Frank and Maria Morozova believe that the local communities that receive support will become more active , more noticeable, more successful — After all, the fund already has real results. During his work, he supported 900 organizations across the country. And its “graduates”, some of whom gathered for the presentation of the new strategy and the film almanac “People of Action”, will become mentors for other NGOs, TOSs, and initiative groups, passing on their experience to them. And the foundation's new slogan “Time to act together” reflects the belief of his team in the power of unification and solidarity.

Grain is taken into account. A record wheat harvest is predicted in Russia

Russian farmers are preparing to cover the whole world with grain from this year's record harvest. So far, the official forecast of the Ministry of Agriculture of the Russian Federation remains at the level of 129-130 million tons, of which 83.5 million tons of wheat. But the US Department of Agriculture (USDA) released a report on August 12, according to which we will definitely collect 130 million tons, of which 88 million tons of wheat. On August 14, experts from the Institute for Agricultural Market Studies predicted a total grain harvest of 145 million tons, of which 95 million tons of wheat. Against this background, the words President of the Russian Grain Union Arkady Zlochevsky, who doubted at a press conference in the MIA “Russia Today” August 8 in such optimistic numbers. The expert believes that this year's harvest will be at the level of 125-128 million tons.

The previous record was set in 2017 and amounted to 134 million tons. Obviously, this year this figure will either be very close to the record, or even exceed it. Why is there such a wide spread in the forecasts and what can we really count on, was explained to aif.ru in the United Grain Company (OZK).

“Now it is difficult to give exact figures for the grain harvest, — said CEO of OZK-Trading Alexander Kichatov, — weather risks can slow down the pace of harvesting in the fall, and this may negatively affect the overall collection. Therefore, it is better to evaluate the harvest in a month and a half. Now, with all the variation in forecasts, it is obvious that the harvest will be fantastic. I think we will approach 130 million tons. But with such a large volume, the quality decreases, “wet” a year associated with high rainfall “wash” gluten from grain, the share of food wheat will decrease, and fodder — will grow.

There are some difficulties in assessing carry-over balances, there is no confidence in their objectivity. But in any case, it can be unequivocally stated that this year's grain harvest will both ensure Russia's food security and preserve our export potential, which is estimated at 40-41 million tons.

At the same time, the USDA assumes that thanks to high demand from importers and a large harvest, Russia will be able to export a record 42 million tons. Our grain is bought with pleasure in Turkey, Egypt, China and some EU countries. And, for example, Benin completely covers all its needs for wheat with the help of Russia, Sudan — by 75%, Rwanda, Tanzania, Madagascar, Congo — by 65%. 

But bravura forecasts have a disturbing underside. With record harvests, the financial condition of farmers paradoxically falls. The purchase of imported equipment has become inaccessible, and its operation in those farms that bought it earlier is difficult due to difficulties with the supply of spare parts. At the same time, prices for a domestic simple tractor soared to 19-20 million rubles. Mineral fertilizers, which we supply half the world, have become an unaffordable luxury for many farmers. The prohibitive rate on loans from banks makes bank loans impossible, and farmers are forced to mobilize all the remaining funds for the purchase of fuels and lubricants, which are also not cheap, but without them, in principle, it is impossible to carry out agricultural work. 

Regulations grain growers are complicated by low purchase prices. Now the most demanded 4th class of grain costs 13 thousand rubles. per ton, fodder — less than 10 thousand rubles. per ton, although the cost, depending on the region, fluctuates around 12 thousand rubles/ton.

But there is still the problem of providing seeds — here our agricultural industry is significantly dependent on imports.

Probably, officials should not rest on their laurels, reporting on a record harvest.

We must immediately respond to the difficulties faced by farmers. After all, problems are accumulating, creating systemic risks for the entire industry. And if nothing is done now, then the grain harvest of the current year may turn out to be the last abundant, its level will become unattainable in the future.

“I don’t want 30, I want 300.” Is an era of teacher shortage coming in Russia?

There is a shortage of teachers in schools in a number of regions of the country, especially in mathematics, physics, Russian and foreign languages. To solve the problem, the Cabinet of Ministers has created a Concept for the Training of Pedagogical Personnel for the Education System until 2030 .

On the eve of the new academic year, aif.ru spoke with experts in education and teachers and learned how they see the way out of the situation of personnel shortage of teachers.

The region is different for the region

strong>

Far from on the entire territory of the Russian Federation, this problem arose. Basically, we are talking about the Far Eastern, Northwestern, Siberian, Urals and Southern federal districts. Here, there is a shortage of teachers, and the salaries of teachers did not grow as fast as as in other regional specialists.

And, for example, in the  Magadan and Sakhalin regions, Moscow, and also the Nenets, Chukotka and Yamal-Nenets Autonomous Okrugs, the salary level of teachers amounted to more than 85 thousand rubles last year. And this that time         when teachers in the North-Caucasian Federal District, in the republics of Adygea, Kalmykia, Mari El                Mordovia, Altai Territory, Ivanovo, Kurgan, Pskov, Smolensk and  rubles.

 the problem of lack of subjects has another side — those teachers who now work in schools are mostly elderly: more than 650 thousand teachers have reached retirement age.

To solve this, the Cabinet of Ministers approved the Concept for the Training of Pedagogical Personnel for the Education System until  2030 . The document states that now the training of teaching staff in our country is carried out on the basis of 229 universities and 440 colleges of various departmental affiliations. But many graduates don go to schools. Yes and the knowledge that teachers receive often does not meet the expectations of employers and parents of students. The concept suggests that the requirements for training of teachers will be the same for all educational institutions.

“It is planned to strengthen the subject and practical training of teachers: to make mandatory such disciplines as “Russian language and culture of speech”, “Classroom management”, “Working with parents”, “Inclusion”, to improve the system of targeted education , especially in the most scarce pedagogical specialties, to use mechanisms for securing novice teachers in profession», — it says in the explanation of the adopted concept.

Among the measures that will allow attracting more graduates to — — for example, targeted training. A greater number of students will study on the direction of the university from the educational institution. Students will be taught modern digital technologies, and students-teachers will devote at least half of their time at the university to studying the subject they plan to teach.

“The work has already begun. With we are preparing a plan for the implementation of the concept with and will present it within within six months  — — declared Head of the Ministry of Education Sergey Kravtsov.

«I don 30, I want 300»

It was with these words that a former English teacher of one of the schools in Chelyabinsk answered the question of an aif.ru correspondent. According to the young teacher, she left the school at the end of the last academic year, not because the prestige of the profession had fallen, but only because of insufficient salary.  Before the pandemic, I received an invitation to work in China  — Elena says. — However, for for obvious reasons the relocation did not work out. I was promised a salary that 10 times more than I received at school. I and know Chinese, I think that my knowledge is worth more than what they offer me for teaching children in municipal school. Our teachers — all pensioners who work because they cannot afford a modest pension. In the winter at school, in the summer in the garden. I want more».

«It depresses the fact that the work of a teacher is not respected»

Elena Istyagina-Eliseeva, Deputy Chairman of the Commission of the Civic Chamber of Russian Federation on physical culture and healthy lifestyle promotion, scientific director of the Institute of Sports Management and Law of the Higher School of Economics, believes that often experienced teachers of general education schools broadcast a rather pessimistic view of the personnel potential of receivers, note the poor preparation of graduates of pedagogical universities, the lack of desire for self-improvement. “As my very mature, 35-year-old school teacher colleague said, “They don’t work the way we do.” with pioneer enthusiasm» — comments Istyagin-Eliseev aif.ru. — And, unfortunately, the main task of young teachers is to earn money. But here you can understand them. For example, in the Chernozem region, an English teacher with a load of 32 hours, taking into account the additional payment to a young specialist, receives a net 20,000 rubles. In the Volga region, the base salary is from 6500 to 11000 rubles. With all additional payments, again, not more than 20,000 rubles. Actually, this analysis can be completed. Work on 2 rates — means to burn out in 2-3 years. The wage situation quickly cools the most ardent romantics. So it turns out that today it is beneficial for pensioners to stay in school: an increase in the pension, plus additional payments for merits, give 60-80 thousand rubles a month. As one of the  heads of the Pedagogical School bitterly jokes: "Young professionals are more willing to trade — stand behind the counter for 40 thousand rubles in mode 2 2».

In the opinion of the Deputy Chairman of the Commission of the Public Chamber of the Russian Federation, pedagogical universities accept a contingent with a very low USE score. Thus, those who did not enter the  prestigious» university entrants submit their documents to "ped" to get a higher education. And then, after working in the specialty for a year, maximum three, they run away from the school. It is depressing that the work of a teacher is not respected.

«It is difficult for young teachers to work with parents — says Istyagina-Eliseeva.   You need to be in control of yourself and to know psychology in order to gently and flexibly explain to modern dads and mothers the reasons for their child's lagging behind. Yes and in in working with parents these days — it is a separate art. I think that universities need to strengthen the subjects that would help the future teacher to behave properly with the parental staff. Nevertheless, the masters of school pedagogy note that young teachers are in great need of the school — children love them with all the gaps in knowledge and pedagogical experience.

Separately, I note that the issue of aging of the teaching staff is not easy. On the one hand, the country's leadership raises the retirement age and actively promotes the extension of active longevity, including working age. And c the other is looking for an opportunity to rejuvenate the teaching staff.

I think that you need to look not in passport, but at qualifications. There are retired teachers who do an excellent job with educational and educational tasks. There are also young teachers who, despite the lack of life experience, do an excellent job.

“Online makes it possible for children from the outback to learn”

Dmitry Danilov, CEO and  founder of an online school, is sure that online learning will allow students in small towns to get the necessary knowledge, regardless of  a good teacher in school.

“I see the introduction of online education in schools as one of the optimal and alternative ways out of this situation. The evolution of education leads to  the emergence of numerous EdTech-projects around the world and in Russia in particular.

In fact, we all know the lack of good teachers and tutors at affordable prices in small towns, at least it is clear to those who live in such settlements. This is especially true for subjects in a foreign language, in particular, English. I from the small town of Cheboksary, and this problem was clear to me. Accordingly, students in small towns are less likely to get a good education and quality preparation for final exams in order to enter a prestigious university. And almost everyone has access to the Internet.

Online education, according to Danilov, has its pros and cons.

Pros:

— Don't waste time and money on the road.

— The possibility of self-organization of the schedule, because recordings of webinars remain and their you can watch at any time.

— You can study with good teachers from all over the country. This is especially true for small settlements where the school may be very far away or simply absent.

Cons of online education:

— The need to develop self-discipline.

— There may be more lessons than offline.

— A large amount of information for self-study. There is very little structured material at the disposal of the student that will actually be useful to him.

"If we talk in to the future of school education, then I see — a hybrid of online and offline education. Socialization is needed, and the educational element must also remain. The second important part of any educational process — upbringing. Third — the teacher must teach the student to learn, in modern terms, “sell” study, that is, to interest, inspire study, which is exactly what online education with its tools and visibility can do.

If we talk about universities, then here I allow a number of specialties (programming, economics, sociology, and others), which can be obtained in online format and in a shorter period (a year or two, instead of 3-5 years traditionally). The world and  professions are changing too fast today. But there are fundamental sciences — for example, medicine, and  so far I can't imagine how today it is possible to train doctors only online without practical and laboratory classes  — Danilov thinks.

From school — in entrepreneurs

Natalia Maksimova, former teacher of mathematics and computer science at a private school, is sure that online education, on the contrary, is quite difficult, first of all, for the teacher himself:

 I came into school teaching after five years of freelancing as as a tutor. I worked at school the most difficult period — from mid-2019 (eve of the pandemic) to mid-2021 (completion of the second lockdown).

The specifics of the work was that I did not had a pedagogical education. However, I have very good communication skills, an engineering education from Bauman Moscow State Technical University and the desire to show children in school that computer science — this is a lot of interesting projects, and even standard excel tools can help you create applications on your phone. Since the school was private, there was an opportunity to move away from the obligatory Federal State Educational Standards, since no one passed computer science either in class 9 or in class 11, and we work in project mode. The  school also had the opportunity, and they purchased a 3D printer for an additional computer science circle, which I led with pleasure for children in grades 5-8 . However, with the advent of the pandemic, the focus of my work has shifted from teaching to technical support for the entire school to organize the educational process so that children can learn from home, teachers can conduct lessons remotely, and and so on.

p>

This greatly undermined the desire to continue working, yes, and to interact with children. The specifics of children's motivation offline — not  the easiest task, but already online and completely difficult to keep the attention of a child.

For myself, I found out that working with non-adult audience (up to 20 years) is ready only offline, and  ;here with adults who themselves come with a request, you can in any format.

From school I went to entrepreneurship, realizing that I can make people's lives better not only at level of quality improvement school education, but in further development.

Now I am invited to lectures at universities, where I lecture soft-skills and entrepreneurship, develop my art of working with audiences, grow as a teacher. School wouldn't give me all this.

Age of Opportunity. The best practices of active aging are presented

Story National projects

The active longevity movement is developing, growing with initiatives in the regions. The best experience does not go unnoticed. Today, at a press conference in TASS, the results of the II All-Russian selection of the best practices of active aging as part of the Demography national project were presented.

Better and more mature

The selection was organized by ANO “National Priorities”, the Ministry of Labor, the Agency for Strategic Initiatives (ASI) and the Timchenko Foundation in partnership with 8 more organizations. The second “selection” organized by order and with the support of the Ministry of Labor. 

«Such annual selections, — said Minister of Labor and Social Protection of the Russian Federation Anton Kotyakov, — help identify effective work tools and motivate us all to look for new solutions. The quality of life of the older generation continues to be one of the state priorities, and within the framework of the national project “Demography” we are constantly improving approaches to the provision of social services». 

The selection received 689 applications, i.e. more than 2 times more than last year, in 4 categories: “Active life”, “Medical and social care, public care and prevention”, “Healthy lifestyle” ; and Education and Employment. 112 practitioners from 42 regions reached the final. Their authors — social institutions, NGOs, businesses, volunteer organizations.

Among the finalists are 10 federal, 19 regional, 60 city and 23 rural practices. Among them — technologies for the widespread introduction of a long-term care system at the level of the republic, corporate training programs and the retention of mature employees and assistance to veterans of enterprises, yoga and hockey classes, the creation of an anti-cafe for the older generation, garden therapy (a method of rehabilitation using plants) for people living in boarding schools, socialization through online participation in contests and many others.

According to Deputy Prime Minister Tatyana Golikova, this year's practices are more professional and effective, they have many new formats and approaches.&nbsp ;

“The sphere of practices is developing, the professional sphere is being formed, — she said. — For this to continue, it is very important that regional authorities throughout the country help to study and replicate the best practices. Then people will be able to think of older age as the age of new opportunities, development and self-realization.

The winners were named by the CEO of National Priorities Sofia Malyavina, noting that thanks to the serious work of the Ministry of Labor with the regions to develop additional mechanisms and tools to help the older generation, this year's projects have become much better. 

According to Director General of the Elena and Gennady Timchenko Charitable Foundation Marina Morozova, they have also become more mature, i.e. their authors are well aware of the current problems of older people and know how to work with them. According to Morozova, it is also important that many projects of intersectoral cooperation have appeared, many of which are aimed at connecting with the state system, which, from joint work with NGOs, receives elements reinforcing it as a safety cushion.

Mass replication

The participants of the press conference insisted: selection of the best projects — not an end in itself, it is done so that other people and other organizations in other regions can take advantage of the best experience.

«We are not only summing up the selection, but also launching the mass replication of the best approaches in the “ Active Longevity”, — said Director of the Center for Best Practices ASI Ilya Mamykin. — All practices are located on the ASI “Smartek” platform, where you can go and leave an application for any of the projects. Then the managers from the agency will help in organizing contact with the team of authors, building relationships and bringing communication to the desired result. 

According to Mamykin, a team of experts will help to cope with the “pitfalls” and narrow issues of implementation of specific projects. He also added that financial support mechanisms for replicating active longevity practices are also being developed.

In law. Roskomnadzor entered Netflix into the register of audiovisual services

On December 28 & nbsp; Roskomnadzor completed the procedure for adding the American streaming platform Netflix to the & nbsp; register of audiovisual services.

& laquo; LLC & bdquo; Entertainment online service & ldquo; ensured compliance with the requirements of the current legislation of the Russian Federation, necessary for its inclusion in the & nbsp; register of audiovisual services in & nbsp; as the owner of the audiovisual service Netflix in & nbsp; Russia. Roskomnadzor entered the Internet service into the & nbsp; ABC register & raquo;, & nbsp; & mdash; said in the & nbsp; department comments on December 28 & nbsp;. Online Entertainment Service, which operates Netflix in & nbsp; Russia, is part of the National Media Group.

LLC bdquo; Online Entertainment Service & ldquo; ensured compliance with the requirements of the current legislation of the Russian Federation, necessary for its inclusion in the & nbsp; register of audiovisual services in & nbsp; as the owner of the audiovisual service Netflix in & nbsp; Russia & raquo;, & nbsp; & mdash; stated in the & nbsp; press service of NMG.

Netflix entering the & nbsp; register & nbsp; & mdash; positive point, believes CEO of the Internet Video Association Alexey Byrdin . According to & nbsp; he said, this should ensure the equality of foreign and & nbsp; domestic services before the legislation of & nbsp; RF and & nbsp; put all players on the Russian market in & nbsp; more equal conditions.

“ I myself & nbsp; welcome this step, because it is impossible to be in a & nbsp; situation where Russian services obey the laws, and & nbsp; foreign services operating in & nbsp; Russia for some reason do not. There are a lot of demands & nbsp; we have in & nbsp; this business segment, and & nbsp; the fact that Netflix was outside the Russian legal field for such a long time gave it an unjustified competitive advantage '', & nbsp; & mdash; Byrdin believes.

According to & nbsp; he said, the owner of Netflix (both the & nbsp; service and & nbsp; site belong to an American company) will have to open a Russian legal entity that will accept legally significant messages from & nbsp; Russian supervisory authorities. “ There will be a full-fledged office in & nbsp; Russia. This is a direct legal requirement. In addition, Netflix will have to distribute 20 federal TV channels, as well as the rest of Russian services, as a result of new requirements introduced already in & nbsp; this year, starting from & nbsp; March next year. It will be necessary to transfer data to a single measure of the Internet audience, it will be necessary, in & nbsp; including, to mark all your content in & nbsp; in accordance with the & nbsp; requirements of Russian law. Now there is content marking in & nbsp; Netflix, but & nbsp; to what extent it complies with the Russian law & bdquo; Protecting children from & nbsp; information & ldquo;, I & nbsp; am not & nbsp; sure that & nbsp; fully. Most likely, after some time, the content labeling and & nbsp; its & nbsp; appearance will have to change a little, and & nbsp; somewhere from & nbsp; spring, most likely, it will be possible to watch Channel One on & nbsp; Netflix, and & nbsp; some other TV channels, included in & nbsp; 20 & nbsp; federal & raquo;, & nbsp; & mdash; he commented & nbsp; future changes.

The register of audiovisual services was created by Roskomnadzor at the & nbsp; end of 2020 with the & nbsp; purpose of monitoring prohibited content in & nbsp; online cinemas available in & nbsp; the territory of the Russian Federation. Resources with & nbsp; daily audience of more than 100 & nbsp; thousand are added to & nbsp; users. On & nbsp; today, the & nbsp; registry includes more than 20 & nbsp; platforms, including More.tv, KION, Kinopoisk and & nbsp; others. Netflix & nbsp; & mdash; the first foreign platform to be included in this list.

“Corrosive, over-ambitious.” Who became the new CEO of VK?

The Board of Directors of & nbsp; VK * unanimously voted for & nbsp; appointment to the & nbsp; post of CEO of Vladimir Kirienko . This is the son of Sergei Kiriyenko , the first deputy head of the Presidential Administration of Russia, which gave evil tongues a reason to speculate about & nbsp; nepotism. In the & nbsp; industry, however, the candidacy of the new CEO is considered very successful.

What is known about & nbsp; Vladimir Kiriyenko?

The CEO position of & nbsp; VK became vacant in & nbsp; in early December, when it was announced that Boris Dobrodeev leaves the & nbsp; post and & nbsp; leaves the company. Almost immediately, a replacement was announced: 38-year-old Vladimir Kiriyenko, the son of the former Prime Minister of the Russian Federation, the ex-head of Rosatom, and & nbsp; now the Deputy Head of the Presidential Administration Sergei Kiriyenko.

Kirienko Jr. was born in & nbsp; Nizhny Novgorod. In & nbsp; 2005, he graduated from the Higher School of Economics with a degree in economics and & nbsp; company finance and & nbsp; immediately began working in the & nbsp; banking sector. First & nbsp; & mdash; under the patronage of his father (entered the & nbsp; board of directors of the bank Garantia, founded by Kiriyenko Sr.). In & nbsp; 2009, he started his own business: the project of the premium cinema Romanov Cinema. In & nbsp; 2011, Vladimir left the & nbsp; capital of the bank (at that moment he was merged with & nbsp; Sarovbusinessbank).

In & nbsp; 2013, Kiriyenko Jr. launched the Titanium Investments venture fund. At the same time, he & nbsp; entered the & nbsp; & nbsp; Moscow School of Management Skolkovo, which he graduated in & nbsp; 2014 & nbsp; year. Finally, in & nbsp; September 2016, Vladimir became senior vice president for & nbsp; development and & nbsp; business management of Rostelecom. In & nbsp; this position, he & nbsp; remained until & nbsp; the last moment.

What will happen to & nbsp; VK with the new CEO?

December 13 & nbsp; & mdash; the first day of work of Vladimir Kirienko at & nbsp; VK. In his & nbsp; welcome message, he & nbsp; noted that & nbsp; VK will continue to enter & nbsp; new markets and & nbsp; test new products, focusing on & nbsp; expanding reach and & nbsp; increasing user engagement.

In a conversation with the & nbsp; edition of Forbes, a source close to & nbsp; Rostelecom, said that Vladimir always followed the & nbsp; latest trends in & nbsp; IT and & nbsp; has been investing in & nbsp; technology business since & nbsp; 2013 & nbsp; year. “ He is & nbsp; corrosive to & nbsp; boring, but & nbsp; in & nbsp; his case it is a good trait as a leader. He's just not the kind of person who will listen to a positive report and & nbsp; will calm down. He always remembers the details and & nbsp; will definitely ask a question about & nbsp; the part where everything is not & nbsp; so brilliant, & nbsp; & mdash; describe the new CEO of VK by colleagues from & nbsp; & bdquo; Rostelecom & ldquo;. & mdash; & nbsp; Kiriyenko always understands & nbsp; any issue thoroughly, deeply dives into & nbsp; details and & nbsp; nuances of each project & raquo ;.

“ Vladimir is super-ambitious and & nbsp; very pumped from the & nbsp; point of view of business. The authorities are not & nbsp; satisfied with the current dynamics of the development of media services and & nbsp; social networks of the holding, and & nbsp; Kiriyenko should in the next 2-3 years correct this situation & raquo;, & nbsp; & mdash; a source in the & nbsp; government told Forbes about the appointment of Kiriyenko.

Analysts believe that if earlier & nbsp; VK tried to monetize its audience, then & nbsp; with the arrival of a new management, the holding will face the task of increasing and & nbsp; keeping the audience in & nbsp; media projects, increasing the impact on & nbsp; users. “ The previous shareholder did not & nbsp; very successfully cope with & nbsp; this task, because he treated & nbsp; VK as a & nbsp; business to generate profit. And & nbsp; Kiriyenko perfectly understands the investment market and & nbsp; projects through which you can expand the company's influence & raquo;, & nbsp; & mdash; said one of the & nbsp; interlocutors of Forbes. “ This is not & nbsp; the case where children are prescribed simply because they are children '', & nbsp; & mdash; added & nbsp; he.

Good news for & nbsp; VK appeared almost immediately & nbsp; with the & nbsp; announcement of the name of its new CEO. Gazprom-Media will become the company's shareholder. This does not & nbsp; mean the takeover of & nbsp; VK by another media giant. In & nbsp; & laquo; Gazprom & raquo; have already stressed that & nbsp; VK will remain an independent company and & nbsp; will develop its own ecosystem. But & nbsp; opportunities for the & nbsp; company will clearly become more, and & nbsp; horizons of its & nbsp; activities may expand.

* Before & nbsp; rebranding, which & nbsp; was announced in & nbsp; October this year, VK & nbsp; was known as Mail.ru Group. The & nbsp; number of its & nbsp; assets includes the social networks “ VKontakte '' and & nbsp; Odnoklassniki, and & nbsp; through a joint venture with Sberbank (“ О2О Holding '') & nbsp; & mdash; food delivery services Delivery Club, Scooter, Kitchen in the area, Citymobil taxi service, CityDrive carsharing and & nbsp; other businesses.

    The behind-the-shelves story of American supermarkets

    The behind-the-shelves story of American supermarkets

    How the grocery store became our one-stop food haven — and the dark side of that success.

    Listen to the story.

    “We’ve become addicted to low prices,” says author and supermarket historian Benjamin Lorr. But those great grocery store deals come at a huge human cost.

    Share

    There was a moment in early 2020 when life narrowed, and the grocery store became a lifeline — in more ways than one. It was the source of breakfast, lunch and dinner, of course. But those lines emerging from sliding-glass doors and wrapping around the block? For a while, they were as close to a social life as we could get, one of our last connections to the outside world. And, when certain items were in short supply in the early days of the pandemic, we were forced to think a lot more about where our food comes from. 

    The importance of the supermarket is no mystery to Benjamin Lorr, author of “The Secret Life of Groceries: The Dark Miracle of the American Supermarket,” and John Mackey, CEO and co-founder of Whole Foods and author of “Conscious Leadership: Elevating Humanity Through Business.” And, as they tell us, they both watched in awe as Americans altered their relationship to the grocery store this year. Indeed, your local megamart has played a hugely influential role in society, from its general store origins in the 19th century to the vast supply chains we see today — becoming “as American as jazz or the T-shirt,” Lorr said. But, as he explains, there is also a dark side to our brightly lit food aisles and a cost to our endless options and two-for-one deals.

    Three Takeaways

    • Today, Americans spend less than 10% of their total budget (their take-home incomes) on food. Back in the 1900s, though, Lorr says, the average family spent around 40% of their budget on food. Why such a big shift? The green revolution and the development of industrial fertilizers and pesticides played a part. But it’s mostly thanks to a low-markup, supermarket model, he says, where competition for the lowest prices is key — and labor rights are often thrown to the wayside.
    • Getting your famous homemade sauce or delicious baked goods onto the shelf of a local supermarket isn’t easy. Stores operate on a pay-to-play system, Lorr says, charging for shelf space, end-of-aisle promotions, catalog placement and more. It’s an easy way to cushion the stores’ bottom line, but it ends up having “very material effects on the food we eat.” The food lining the aisles isn’t necessarily the tastiest or the healthiest, Lorr says — but it has definitely passed through the most hoops. 
    • There are “huge structural problems” with the way food certifications are handed out, Lorr says. These certifications might attest that a product is manufactured without certain chemicals or using certain labor standards, but “government regulation has failed in this and is not providing any regulatory apparatus for fraud,” he added. According to Lorr, the audit system that approves these certifications is a “$50 billion per year for-profit industry” where issues are “baked into” the process.

    [Chorus]
    I don’t know why we even tried this in the first place
    But it all comes back to love
    Yeah, it all comes back to love (na, na, na)
    I been trying to do my best in the worst way
    ‘Cause it all comes back to love
    Yeah, it all comes back to love (na, na, na)

    [Verse 1]
    Met back in our twenties
    Ex-wife wanted money
    You still wanted me back then but now you do not love me
    No affection, no respect
    It’s been too long since a check came my way
    Not the same ever since my father’s death
    No excuses, yeah I know
    I been trying, I been trying
    June I’m fine, kids I’m fine
    I been lying, I been lying
    So much pressure, I can’t sleep
    Everything about me aching
    It’s so hard to accept my kid bringing home the bacon
    I’m at fault, I’m a loser, best believe I’ve heard it all
    From the girl of my dreams that I married in the fall
    And I get it, your resentment, yeah it’s justified
    But I’ve had enough of arguing, I’ve had enough of crying
    I know that you’re mad but you were mad when I was paid too
    I’m feeling helpless I just hope our love saves you
    It’s been over twenty years, recognize our blessings
    Even though that we can barely coexist for more than twenty seconds, damn

    [Chorus]
    I don’t know why we even tried this in the first place
    But it all comes back to love
    Yeah, it all comes back to love (na, na, na)
    I been trying to do my best in the worst way
    ‘Cause it all comes back to love
    Yeah, it all comes back to love (na, na, na)

    [Verse 2]
    I love you Jim, the way you grin, the way you make me laugh
    The way you helped me raise three angels, wouldn’t take it back
    I think you’re a genius, that’s why I be stressing you
    CEO, CEO, I expect nothing less from you
    That’s a compliment, I know that I should show more
    Gratitude for you, I know my attitude’s been so poor
    But so have we but this is deeper than a bank account
    I know that I got pent up shit, I know I need to work it out
    Russell takes me traveling, he just does our balancing
    He knows that you’re strong meanwhile he knows that I’m unraveling
    He’s not taking sides, trust me he says that you’re right
    He just tryna help us both, he don’t wanna see us fight
    It rained when we got married and you know I loved the sun
    I know I blamed you for things outta your control
    But you’re the one that I love
    Damn, that I love (I’m sorry, I love you)

    [Chorus]
    I don’t know why we even tried this in the first place
    But it all comes back to love
    Yeah, it all comes back to love (na na na)
    I been trying to do my best in the worst way
    ‘Cause it all comes back to love
    Yeah, it all comes back to love (na na na)

    [Outro]
    Na, na, na
    Na, na, na, na
    Na, na, na, na

    Rich The Kid – Can’t Afford It lyrics

    [Intro: Rich The Kid]
    You know what I’m saying, I know they doubted me
    Counted me out, you know what I’m saying
    Bossed up, real CEO though, read about it

    [Chorus: Rich The Kid]
    Suicide doors, go up (skrrt)
    They ain’t wanna see me blow up (what)
    Huh, from the Mazi to the Bentley trucks (Bentley trucks)
    Off-White with the Gucci, I might switch it up (yeah, yeah)
    Came up off a sill, sign my deal in the same week (huh)
    Put my wrist on chill, AP real, that sh*t ain’t cheap
    Amiri, my jeans fit a hundred thousand
    I’m the sh*t, like a toilet, why you flexing you can’t afford it (huh)

    [Verse 1: Rich The Kid]
    Huh, I know I’m winning but they doubted me (doubted me)
    Niggas thought that I was playing, I’m the prodigy (what)
    Diamonds cooler than a cooler, shout out to my jeweler (ice, ice)
    If I want that n*gger sooner, put her in a Uber
    I had ran up a sack, f*ck a contract
    Cookie pack, anthrax, catch a contact
    Rich forever I’m the CEO
    50,000 just in Barneys, I got plenty more
    Picking bitches out a magazine
    AP or the new Philippe (ice, ice)
    New Givenchy on my feet
    I got three million haters you can take a seat

    [Chorus: Rich The Kid & Pusha-T ]
    Suicide doors, go up (skrrt)
    They ain’t wanna see me blow up (what)
    Huh, from the Mazi to the Bentley trucks (ooh)
    Off-White with the Gucci, I might switch it up (yeah, yeah)
    King Push
    Came up off a sill, sign my deal in the same week (huh)
    Baby, your self-esteem cannot be this low
    Put my wrist on chill, AP real, that sh*t ain’t cheap
    Why is you f*ckin’ this man?
    Amiri, my jeans fit a hundred thousand
    You know he can’t afford it
    I’m the sh*t, like a toilet, why you flexing you can’t afford it

    [Verse 2: Pusha-T]
    He can’t afford you, baby, just abort it (kill a baby)
    That 488 just got ordered
    Facetiming from the flight I just boarded (right)
    I’ll have my travel agent get you sorted
    Nowadays you impressed by so little
    I look at your top 5, niggas is so middle
    The rhymes don’t even riddle
    The diamonds in your Rollies don’t skittle
    I see no rainbows
    All you lame-os
    I just changed clothes
    The peacoat is Marni, you thinking Armani
    This sh*t is from Jeffrey’s, that sh*t is from Barney’s (ooh)
    You should have Zoe Costello to applaud me
    Or impede

    [Chorus: Rich The Kid]
    Suicide doors, go up (skrrt)
    They ain’t wanna see me blow up (what)
    Huh, from the Mazi to the Bentley trucks (Bentley trucks)
    Off-White with the Gucci, I might switch it up (yeah, yeah)
    Came up off a sill, sign my deal in the same week (huh)
    Put my wrist on chill, AP real, that sh*t ain’t cheap
    Amiri, my jeans fit a hundred thousand
    I’m the sh*t, like a toilet, why you flexing you can’t afford it

    Oh, snap that boy’s about to go go bi, bipolar
    Dead at midnight, out like a convict
    Trick I’m losing my shit, watch this
    Throw a bottle, fuck the world
    I need fight tunes and mushrooms, I’m tripping
    (Chicka Chicka) Who’s bad?
    Baby it’s my turn, I want all of it
    Hey, let’s go
    Look at ’em hating on a trailer park pimp
    Who? Me
    It’s a problem ain’t it, man
    You’re fucking right, you better get used to it
    Catfish Billy man
    Check the 5-0, in the rear-view
    Scheming on the Chevy cause the Chevy’s in clear view
    Tires wet, pulling me over
    With tattoos, I’m a pistol holder
    An American fuck up, money like a crook
    And I’m spending G’s like I’m buying a soda
    Check me out, CEO
    Got pull like a monster truck so what’s up
    I earn my (shit), respect is a must
    You fuck around with me (shit)
    In the slug I trust

    James Brown motherfucker (shit)
    A tooka, a tooka to the breakdown like this
    (shit, shit, shit, shit, shit, shit, shit)
    Oh, oh, oh
    Off the top, let’s go

    [Hook]
    Give me everything, take it all away
    Lock me up and then throw away the key
    Kick me down and then talk about my state
    I’m not out of place, I’m from outer space
    I’m not out of place, I’m from outer space
    I’m not out of place, I’m from outer space
    Give me everything, take it all away
    Lock me up and then throw away the key
    Kick me down and then talk about my state
    I’m not out of place, I’m from outer space
    I’m not out of place, I’m from outer space
    I’m not out of place, I’m from outer space
    Give me everything, take it all away
    Lock me up and then throw away the key
    Kick me down and then talk about my state
    I’m not out of place, I’m from outer space
    I’m not out of place, I’m from outer space
    I’m not out of place, I’m from outer space
    I’m not out of place, I’m from outer space
    I’m not out of place, I’m from outer space

    Pop out, lil’ birdie, you speak with a beak
    Send your location, then Uber to me
    Bitches been hangin’ diamonds on my face
    Kick her to the curb, she ain’t gang anyway
    Asian on the beat then the beat gets slayed
    I took it offensive, so watch what you say
    Hi, bitch, got a .30, don’t try it
    Ball out the mall, I’m like Kobe, just buy shit
    Sick of these bitches, they lie quick
    Clip shoot a movie, now talkers, directors, you dyin’
    Send her ass on a hike
    I don’t wanna kick it with her, bitch for the hype
    Real pretty, beat her ass in a street fight
    Know I’m flyer than these hoes like a pink kite, Asian Doll!

    [Interlude: Bhad Bhabie]
    Bitch!
    You mad, ho
    Why you so mad, ho?

    [Verse 5: Bhad Bhabie]
    Ho, don’t wanna try me, yeah, that’s on my mama’s chromosome
    Commas run on 10, since I run it up
    Never wanna line up, I don’t do McDonald’s
    Fuck crazy you know I’m breakin’ necks when I’m pullin’ up (skrrt)
    All my numbers lookin’ outrageous
    Now the blogs handin’ out praises
    Got the world usin’ my phrases
    Hoes keep my name in their mouth
    Hope it tastes like shit when they say it (don’t say my name, bitch)
    Barrin’ out, I ain’t got Xans in me, no
    Young but I’m ballin’ like a damn CEO
    Bentley truck, said don’t give a fuck
    Came from the street, Boynton Beach
    Yeah, they know what’s up
    Bitches that hold no position, come at me, fall in my mentions
    Hoes be thirsty for attention, knock a ho out this dimension
    Then continue my ascension (why you so mad?)
    How you hoes livin’ with no purpose?
    I be pumpin’ venom in my verses
    Bitch, you worthless, you ain’t fuckin’ with my worst shit
    Doubted me, now it’s all comin’ together like cursive (like cursive, bitch)
    $50K a show, I’m doin’ 30 of ’em
    5 million by the summer, keep the numbers runnin’
    Bitches showin’ everything, I be understuntin’ (damn)
    Understand, a year ago I really had nothing’ (shit)
    Shit, but now I’m breakin’ records and I’m makin’ history (wow)
    How can they stop me? I swear it’s a mystery
    Parents so sick of me, source of their misery
    (Let your kids listen to me!)
    Hoe, I do a million views on a slow day
    And I ain’t gotta go to school like a snow day
    But my… in the stu’ so it’s okay, bank account look like a lick
    Broke ho, you look like you sick, slide on the beat like it’s slick
    Bitch don’t compare me to Iggy, that old ho is washed and I’m lit
    Wouldn’t pay her to wash up my whip (bye, broke bitch, bye, ho!)

    [Chorus: Bhad Bhabie]
    White J’s, white Porsche
    White wrist, white horse
    Hi, bitch, hi, bitch
    Hi, bitch, hi, bitch
    I do not sniff it or roll it (no)
    It do not drip when I pour it (no)
    I do not run, I reload it
    I do not save it, I throw it
    White J’s, white Porsche
    White wrist, white horse
    Hi, bitch, hi, bitch
    Hi, bitch, hi, bitch

    Tatted my chest with them angels
    Tell my bitch to keep away the danger

    I gotta get me another vault
    Niggas ain’t doing the withdrawals, gotta keep acty on deck
    I gotta keep Becky on deck
    I keep it real, it ain’t no flex

    Keep one in the head automatically, yeah

    I never cross my niggas, playing both sides

    [Verse 3: Young Scooter]
    You my nigga but I don’t trust your man, damn

    I know you down to ride, but is you gon’ snitch

    I get money in every zone, from one to six
    These dirty bitches play both sides
    Don’t trust these hoes cause all of them lie
    These dirty lawyers they play both sides
    They’ll Swap you out and make you do some time
    A true feeling

    [Chorus: Young Scooter]
    Watch out for these niggas playing both sides
    BM, FBG nigga til the day I die

    Seen shawty locked up and his brother died
    Real nigga that’s the only reason that I’m still alive
    I never cross my niggas, playing both sides

    Miguel – Now Lyrics

    [Verse 1]
    CEO of the free world now
    Build your walls up high and wide
    Make it rain to keep them out
    That won’t change what we are inside

    [Pre-Chorus]
    Pick the fruit of your labor
    Cultivate, plant your seeds now and watch them grow
    Man, I’ll holla at you later
    Let you find out what you’re made of
    Just saying…

    [Chorus]
    Is that the look of freedom, now?
    Is that the sound of freedom, now?
    ‘Cause it’s plain to see a man’s integrity
    By the way he treats those he does not need
    And it’s time we talk about it
    Let’s not waste our common ground
    We will fall for standing and watching, all in silence
    Dear Lord, are we numb? Where we going right now?

    [Hook]
    No, not later, la, la, la, la, later
    Oh, right now, oh, right now
    Now, not later, no, not later
    La, la, la, la, later

    [Verse 2]
    CEO of the free world now
    Should we teach our children hatred?
    Chase the innocent, and shoot them down
    It’s like we’re still running races
    I’m just saying…

    [Chorus]
    Is that the look of freedom, now?
    Is that the sound of freedom, now?
    ‘Cause it’s plain to see a man’s integrity
    By the way he treats those when he don’t need them
    And it’s time we talk about it
    Let’s not waste our common ground
    We will fall for standing and watching, all this silence
    Dear Lord, are we numb? Where we going right now?

    The game – Russ lyrics

    Lyrics Russ – The game

    Yeah
    Now you can hear the gold just jangling
    But, its still about the take over.(the game)

    It’s like everything changed
    But I still feel the same
    I’m just tryna run the motherf*cking game
    I’m on that
    Yeah I’ll always be on that
    It’s like everything changed
    But I still feel the same
    I’m just tryna run the motherf*cking game
    I’m on that
    Yeah I’ll always be on that, yeah.

    Where do I start damn, man my mind is racing
    Hip hop awards getting chosen by some racists
    I’m in the yo, with a bottle of some clear s**t
    You don’t know the truth, you just hear s**t
    Homie’s on a Learjet, upgrade from the block
    If you too big, f*ck fades they gon’ use the Glock (use the Glock)
    I do a lot for everyone around me, y’all don’t see it
    I’m in the club for half an hour then I’m probably leaving
    I got paid, dip off with the gang
    Got Bugus in the Bentley, got Herb in the Wraith
    Got Tim in the Ghost, got a gun on his waist
    Life or death, ain’t no time to start reaching for the safe
    So I play it safe versuri-lyrics.info
    Real ones that would really go hit for me
    Low overhead, no-one ever wrote a hit for me
    I be making history, bigger when I’m dead
    I’m so on
    But it’s off with they head
    f*ck MTV, y’all really snubbed me
    How you choosing people with numbers that ain’t above me?
    Oh wait, politics
    Playing at these colleges, getting paid more to perform than any scholarship
    I’m lit, I’m gassed, I’m me, I’m me
    Two platinum singles, two years they were free
    As I’m writing this, I know that this ain’t accurate no more
    By the time that all y’all hear this I will most likely have more
    I really did eight tours, headlined them all
    Your contacts were bullshit, we redlined them all
    I spent time in awe, on some amazed s**t
    Then an O.G. told me to embrace this
    I will never waste this, never get complacent
    Lotta these rappers got rich and got jaded
    I’m still on the same s**t, take over the game s**t
    I just can’t relate to your wavelength.

    It’s like everything changed
    But I still feel the same
    I’m just tryna run the motherf*cking game
    I’m on that
    Yeah I’ll always be on that
    It’s like everything changed
    But I still feel the same
    I’m just tryna run the motherf*cking game
    I’m on that
    Yeah I’ll always be on that, yeah.

    I get everything for free, from your girl to my wardrobe
    Half a million dollars smiling on my torso
    I buy property, you just got foreclosed
    Money running low, you gon’ have to do more shows
    But you know no one shows for your shows
    So you do club hostings but you drink what you gross
    Then you go back home, fall asleep frustrated
    Girl laying next to you, whispering “Russ made it”
    You asleep, you don’t hear her so she sneaks out
    And she pulls up on me and brings the freak out
    I send her back before your eyes open
    I’m her fix ’cause your life’s broken
    She might try chokin’
    On something you don’t wanna kiss after
    Lifestyle of a young handsome rich rapper
    It’s all laughter, it’s all big bucks though
    Call the buzz “Vegas” ’cause it stays on a bus though
    Girls gone wild, rich like Rothschild
    I’ma make you sign an NDA, now you’re on file
    I’m the President, the CEO
    People that I’ve never seen, tryna see me go (uh)
    Billionaire minds in my circle that’s a fact
    Faded off Clooney liquor we don’t know, how to act
    If it’s based off of fans, y’all should really do the math
    If it’s based off of sales, y’all should really count the plaques
    If it’s based off of p***y, y’all should really count the a*s
    If it’s based off of money, y’all should really count the cash (uh)
    Move around with duffle bags like Floyd does
    Sometimes nothing makes more noise than poise does
    Coin us the best movement of all time
    Dreams too big to think small time
    I’m just on the same s**t, take over the game s**t
    I just can’t relate to any B-level wave length.

    It’s like everything changed
    But I still feel the same
    I’m just tryna run the motherf*cking game
    I’m on that
    Yeah I’ll always be on that
    It’s like everything changed
    But I still feel the same
    I’m just tryna run the motherf*cking game
    I’m on that
    Yeah I’ll always be on that, yeahhh.

    Macklemore – How To Play The Flute lyrics

    Don’t nobody give a damn what all that [?] talking ’bout, man. We tryna here some of that, that “Girl, shake your ass, shake your ass, shake your ass,” and you know what I’m saying? I’m tryna get that in my life.
    Gemini

    [Verse 1: Macklemore]
    Diamond, diamond, diamond, that’s my sh*t
    Oh, juice (wet), 3-piece, crisp (damn)
    Saucey, dripping (dripping), CEO of this (CEO)
    Curry, wavy, my undertone’s a bitch
    Shoutout to my city, know I really does this
    Third time’s a charm, I’m feeling triumphant (I want it)
    I put a little gold up on my bicuspids
    They can only see my eyes inside of the Cutlass (Who’s he?)
    She may be vanilla cream, baby, her butt big
    They treat me like McGregor when I’m out in Dublin (They do)
    My mama don’t like it when I be cussing (She don’t)
    But f*ck these motherf*ckers, mama, I don’t trust them
    It’s plush up in the bucket, look, don’t touch it, thought you knew
    In the pocket like I’m Russel, man, I hustle, watch me move
    In the summer watch me f*ck around, I’m ’bout to drop the roof
    She hopped up in the whip and then I taught her how to play the flute, play the flute

    [Chorus: King Draino]
    They hating on a player
    Don’t understand, they need to get they weight up (Okay)
    Shazam, I’ma have to David Blaine her (What you doin?)
    Emoji hands, I’m praying for them haters (Amen)

    [Post-Chorus: Macklemore]
    Ah-choo, God bless you, ay
    Ah-choo, God bless you, ay
    Ah-choo, God bless you, ay
    Ah-choo, God bless you, ay
    Ah-choo, God bless you, ay
    Ah-choo, God bless you, ay
    Ah-choo, God bless you, ay
    Ah-choo, God bless you, ay

    [Verse 3: Macklemore]
    Aye, little mama, aqui
    Skin tone macchiato, we eating mahi-mahi
    On Miami Beach, we have a party la-dee-da-dee
    On my B-I-E ’til I D-I-E, I think I’m king (I think I’m king)
    You didn’t think that I would get the peacoat
    Unbutton that motherf*cker, nothing but a speedo (Look!)
    Who’s that peeking in my window, Cee-Lo
    I was on that Cujo, that Big Gipp and that [?]
    Dolce and Gabbana, cappuccino gelato
    In that grotto out in Cabo
    Amateur, so Apollo
    Whip this bulky like Costco, I’m out here and dodging 5-0
    I hit the block with that top low, a dookie rolled with a poncho
    But it ain’t about to rain on me
    Tryna sing up in the bitch, but I ain’t on key
    Now I stay genuine, I’m the same old G
    Feeling like John [?] with these eight gold rings
    Play the flute

    [Chorus: King Draino]
    They hating on a player
    Don’t understand, they need to get they weight up (Okay)
    Shazam, I’ma have to David Blaine her (What you doin?)
    Emoji hands, I’m praying for them haters (Amen)

    [Post-Chorus: Macklemore]
    Ah-choo, God bless you, ay
    Ah-choo, God bless you, ay
    Ah-choo, God bless you, ay
    Ah-choo, God bless you, ay
    Ah-choo, God bless you, ay
    Ah-choo, God bless you, ay
    Ah-choo, God bless you, ay
    Ah-choo, God bless you, ay

    Kodak Black – Misunderstood (Project Baby 2 Album)

    [Intro]
    It’s like fuck it, I’m just misunderstood. That’s the story of my life

    [Chorus]
    I don’t like talkin’ to you niggas, y’all don’t understand me
    Poppin’ rhythm when I talk, it’s like I’m speakin’ Spanish
    I’m so different from you dudes, I am not organic
    Say slow down on all that thuggin’, think about your family
    I don’t like talkin’ to you niggas, y’all don’t understand me
    Poppin’ rhythm when I talk, it’s like I’m speakin’ Spanish
    I’m so different from you dudes, I am not organic
    Say slow down on all that thuggin’, think about your family

    [Verse 1]
    I keep this tool on me like I done turned into a mechanic
    I’m a fuckin’ CEO, I don’t need no damn manage
    I don’t like no interviews, see y’all don’t speak my language
    We can’t hold no conversation, you don’t know what I’m sayin’
    She say she wanna know the real me, bitch I am it
    Tell the blog "correct that shit," ’cause I ain’t from Miami
    I don’t even speak code, when I do, I’m misinterpretated
    I don’t even need no surfboard, I’m too fuckin’ wavy
    I ain’t take my meds bitch, ’cause I ain’t fuckin’ crazy
    Say you thuggin’ a lil’ too hard, life you livin’ dangerous
    They don’t see potential, they say I’m a project baby
    Just ’cause my dad so goddamn selfish, he ain’t wanna raise me

    [Chorus]
    I don’t like talkin’ to you niggas, y’all don’t understand me
    Poppin’ rhythm when I talk, it’s like I’m speakin’ Spanish
    I’m so different from you dudes, I am not organic
    Say slow down on all that thuggin’, think about your family
    I don’t like talkin’ to you niggas, y’all don’t understand me
    Poppin’ rhythm when I talk, it’s like I’m speakin’ Spanish
    I’m so different from you dudes, I am not organic
    Say slow down on all that thuggin’, think about your family

    [Verse 2]
    I’m on 18, I’m slangin’ like I’m Peyton Manning
    My bitch just told me to be more gentle ’cause I’m too demanding
    They say that all my demons seeming but I’m not satanic
    And I keep her back wet but shawty ain’t Hispanic
    I see you in [?] vision through my Prada lenses
    No point in goin’ to school if I’ma keep on jumpin’ fences
    The block too hot and that’s the only reason I’m on campus
    It’s a pandemonium ridin’ panoramic
    Once they let me out of jail I went back to the dentist
    I snapped my golds out and flood my gums with VVS’s
    Yeah, you listenin’ what I’m sayin’ but you don’t get the message
    Did so much dirt I wonder how I still be gettin’ any blessings

    [Chorus]
    I don’t like talkin’ to you niggas, y’all don’t understand me
    Poppin’ rhythm when I talk, it’s like I’m speakin’ Spanish
    I’m so different from you dudes, I am not organic
    Say slow down on all that thuggin’, think about your family
    I don’t like talkin’ to you niggas, y’all don’t understand me
    Poppin’ rhythm when I talk, it’s like I’m speakin’ Spanish
    I’m so different from you dudes, I am not organic
    Say slow down on all that thuggin’, think about your family

    Russ – The Game

    [Intro]
    Yeah
    Now you can hear the gold just jangling
    But, its still about the take over

    [Chorus]
    It’s like everything changed
    But I still feel the same
    I’m just tryna run the motherfucking game
    I’m on that
    Yeah I’ll always be on that
    It’s like everything changed
    But I still feel the same
    I’m just tryna run the motherfucking game
    I’m on that
    Yeah I’ll always be on that, yeah

    [Verse 1]
    Where do I start damn, man my mind is racing
    Hip hop awards getting chosen by some racists
    I’m in the yo, with a bottle of some clear shit
    You don’t know the truth, you just hear shit
    Homie’s on a Learjet, upgrade from the block
    If you too big, fuck fades they gon’ use the Glock (use the Glock)
    I do a lot for everyone around me, y’all don’t see it
    I’m in the club for half an hour then I’m probably leaving
    I got paid, dip off with the gang
    Got Bugus in the Bentley, got Herb in the Wraith
    Got Tim in the Ghost, got a gun on his waist
    Life or death, ain’t no time to start reaching for the safe
    So I play it safe
    Real ones that would really go hit for me
    Low overhead, no-one ever wrote a hit for me
    I be making history, bigger when I’m dead
    I’m so on (on)
    But it’s off with they head
    Fuck MTV, y’all really snubbed me
    How you choosing people with numbers that ain’t above me?
    Oh wait, politics
    Playing at these colleges, getting paid more to perform than any scholarship
    I’m lit, I’m gassed, I’m me, I’m me
    Two platinum singles, two years they were free
    As I’m writing this, I know that this ain’t accurate no more
    By the time that all y’all hear this I will most likely have more
    I really did eight tours, headlined them all
    Your contacts were bullshit, we redlined them all
    I spent time in awe, on some amazed shit
    Then an O.G. told me to embrace this
    I will never waste this, never get complacent
    Lotta these rappers got rich and got jaded
    I’m still on the same shit, take over the game shit
    I just can’t relate to your wavelength

    [Chorus]
    It’s like everything changed
    But I still feel the same
    I’m just tryna run the motherfucking game
    I’m on that
    Yeah I’ll always be on that
    It’s like everything changed
    But I still feel the same
    I’m just tryna run the motherfucking game
    I’m on that
    Yeah I’ll always be on that, yeah

    [Verse 2]
    I get everything for free, from your girl to my wardrobe
    Half a million dollars smiling on my torso
    I buy property, you just got foreclosed
    Money running low, you gon’ have to do more shows
    But you know no one shows for your shows
    So you do club hostings but you drink what you gross
    Then you go back home, fall asleep frustrated
    Girl laying next to you, whispering "Russ made it"
    You asleep, you don’t hear her so she sneaks out
    And she pulls up on me and brings the freak out
    I send her back before your eyes open
    I’m her fix ’cause your life’s broken
    She might try chokin’
    On something you don’t wanna kiss after
    Lifestyle of a young handsome rich rapper
    It’s all laughter, it’s all big bucks though
    Call the buzz "Vegas" ’cause it stays on a bus though
    Girls gone wild, rich like Rothschild
    I’ma make you sign an NDA, now you’re on file
    I’m the President, the CEO
    People that I’ve never seen, tryna see me go (uh)
    Billionaire minds in my circle that’s a fact
    Faded off Clooney liquor we don’t know, how to act
    If it’s based off of fans, y’all should really do the math
    If it’s based off of sales, y’all should really count the plaques
    If it’s based off of pussy, y’all should really count the ass
    If it’s based off of money, y’all should really count the cash (uh)
    Move around with duffle bags like Floyd does
    Sometimes nothing makes more noise than poise does
    Coin us the best movement of all time
    Dreams too big to think small time
    I’m just on the same shit, take over the game shit
    I just can’t relate to any B-level wave length

    [Chorus]
    It’s like everything changed
    But I still feel the same
    I’m just tryna run the motherfucking game
    I’m on that
    Yeah I’ll always be on that
    It’s like everything changed
    But I still feel the same
    I’m just tryna run the motherfucking game
    I’m on that
    Yeah I’ll always be on that, yeah
