Protoje is in her head. One of modern reggae’s most important figures is in a contemplative, almost melancholy mood on his latest album, The third time is the charm. Gone are the ambitious anthems and crossover superstar collaborations of previous records. This time, Protoje leans back, gets lost in thought, and sinks into the riddims.

The 10-track set’s first single, “Hills,” finds Protoje recounting an idyllic time of isolation during the pandemic lockdowns. “Man, I’ve been in the hills, you know, like hiding, no sign for me, steam weed three times a day,” he sings in a swaggering trap cadence. “The Charm” samples legendary Jamaican singer Dennis Brown in its intro and blurs an easy reggae beat into cavernous dub effects. A futuristic reggae feel permeates “Ten Cane Row,” which Protoje says was inspired by his encounter with British soul singer Jorga Smith, whose smoky, sultry vocals on the song’s chorus contrast with his descriptive verses and crispy.

Over a bubbling reggae beat, Protoje further flaunts his romantic side on “Dreamy Eyes”, which is highlighted by his shifting vocal patterns, especially his impressive, sped up beat on the third verse. Protoje’s thoughtful lyrics espousing spiritual strength are delivered with precise intonation on “Heavy Load,” which is set to a lush retro-soul orchestral arrangement that ideally frames Jamaican singer Samory I’s powerfully angsty and compelling hook.

Like its predecessors, The third time is the charm incorporates elements of classical and neo-soul, rock and especially hip-hop, but this time around Protoje puts a heavy emphasis on their Jamaican/reggae roots. That said, it’s not your parents’ reggae. Protoje, in collaboration with a stellar cast of producers including IV the Polymath and 8Track, and Jamaicans Iotosh and Ziah .Push, distills diverse influences into a cutting-edge sound montage that propels its exceptional vocal flow and lyrical complexities to greater heights. high peaks.

Throughout his career, Protoje has recorded plenty of incisive social commentary, and “Late at Night” adheres to that precedent by addressing violence in Jamaica; the urgency of Protoje’s lyrics is heightened by his hypnotic staccato delivery: “Streets hot/Three Glocks/Beat shot/Kick back/Knee knock/Fall flat/Tree chop/Crime scene/See cops/Seize stock.” Sung to a searing, bass-heavy reggae beat and co-produced by Protoje and Oliver “Cadenza” Rodigan (son of venerable British reggae radio personality Sir David Rodigan), “Late at Night” samples “Children of the Night” from the Jamaican singer Pam Hall (a reggae cover of the Stylistics’ 1972 soul nugget) with the dynamic Lila Iké on a haunting chorus.

Protoje’s all-encompassing musical approach and the distinctive character of this sixth studio album is embodied in the track “Incient Stepping”, produced by innovative musical collective Zion I Kings, which Protoje (and many others) cite as the standard of the modern reggae; over an ethereal soundscape grounded in a resounding bassline, Protoje expresses its allegiance to Rastafari, juxtaposing reverential vocals with rapped verses and age-old mysticism with progressive vision. For all of The third time is the charmdraws inspiration from sampled and synthesized genres and rhythms, it is undoubtedly a reggae album that honors Jamaica’s great musical traditions while incorporating bold experimentation to push those traditions forward; it is also the finest representation of Protoje art to date. No wonder Protoje is so lost in thought. The man clearly has a lot on his mind.

On September 20, 2022, the Parliament of Ukraine approved draft law No. 7732 “On amendments to subsection 10 of Chapter XX “Transitional provisions” of the Tax Code of Ukraine (concerning specifics of taxation with royalty use of the subsoil for the production of natural gas)” . The bill modifies the mechanism determining the actual selling price of natural gas, since the royalty for the production of natural gas is determined by its actual selling price.

As a result of military aggression by the Russian Federation, the export of gas to Ukraine is prohibited, so the gas must be sold in Ukraine or pumped into storage. By Law No. 2261-IX of May 12, 2022, the Ukrainian Parliament temporarily cancels the obligation to pay a fee for the use of subsoil for the production of natural gas for gas volumes that have not been sold by production companies but which have been pumped into storage. This law applies from April 1, 2022 until the last day (inclusive) of martial law in Ukraine.

At present, the actual sale price of natural gas used for the needs of domestic consumers and thermal power producers is the price specified in the contract for the sale and purchase of natural gas between the production companies ( i.e. Ukrgasvydobuvannya, Chornomornaftogaz) and the entity that constitutes the natural gas resource for domestic consumers (i.e. Naftogaz) and thermal energy producers.

The actual selling price of natural gas to industrial consumers is an arithmetic average quotation of prices on European exchanges, hubs and the customs value of imported gas.

Producing companies that sell gas for the needs of the population sell it cheaper than they pay a royalty for its extraction. As a result, gas extraction became unprofitable, leading to even greater dependence on imports.

Bill No. 7732 proposes to establish that the actual selling price of sales of natural gas extracted in Ukraine from August 1, 2022 is the maximum of one of the following three values:

  • Weighted average gas price in UAH, which is specified in purchase and sale contracts with Naftogaz of Ukraine
  • Weighted average price of gas in UAH based on auction results on organized commodity markets. Besides Naftogaz of Ukraine and its controlled companies
  • UAH natural gas price, which is an average arithmetic quote of UA VTP gas price on “advance payment” terms for the next month and the value between “Bid” and “Ask” prices

The bill provides for such changes from August 1, 2022 until the complete cancellation of any natural gas export ban. These novelties will allow gas extractors not to incur losses and to continue extracting gas in Ukraine, thus reducing dependence on imports.

London: Westminster Abbey, the site of Queen Elizabeth II’s funeral, has been central to the British Royal Family for almost a millennium.

In the 1040s, King Edward the Confessor built a stone church on the site of a Benedictine monastery founded around 960, during a major expansion.

Construction of today’s imposing Gothic abbey began under the orders of King Henry III in 1245.

It was designed as a coronation and burial place for monarchs.

Coronations

William I was the first king crowned in the abbey in 1066 – a tradition that has endured through the centuries.

In 1953, Elizabeth II was crowned in the coronation chair, as would her eldest son Charles.

The chair was made in 1300-1301. It housed the Stone of Scone, which was used for centuries to crown Scottish kings.

The stone was temporarily stolen in a daring raid by Scottish students in 1950, who accidentally broke it in half.

In 1996, with the rise of nationalist sentiment, he was symbolically sent back to Scotland but would return from Edinburgh Castle to Westminster for the coronations.

The abbey has hosted 38 coronation ceremonies for reigning monarchs.

Weddings

The church has also been the scene of royal weddings – most since World War I. The first was when King Henry I married Princess Matilda of Scotland on November 11, 1100.

Queen Elizabeth’s parents, Prince Albert – future King George VI – and Elizabeth Bowes-Lyon were married in the church in 1923.

And Queen Elizabeth married Philip Mountbatten in the abbey in 1947, bringing royal color to the recovery years after World War II.

Queen Elizabeth’s sister, Princess Margaret, and her children, Princess Anne and Prince Andrew, were all married at the Abbey.

The last royal wedding was that of Charles’ eldest son, Prince William, who married his college sweetheart Kate Middleton in 2011.

Only 14 years earlier, in 1997, William had attended the funeral of his mother Diana at the Abbey after her death in a car accident in Paris.

Famous graves

Some 18 British monarchs are believed to be buried in the abbey, among 30 kings and queens, starting with Edward the Confessor. King George II was the last, in 1760.

Around 3,330 people are buried at the abbey, including some of the great figures in British history.

They include Charles Dickens, Geoffrey Chaucer, Samuel Johnson, Rudyard Kipling, Alfred Tennyson, Henry Purcell, William Wilberforce, Laurence Olivier, Thomas Hardy and eight prime ministers.

Astrophysics giant Stephen Hawking’s ashes were buried in 2018 between the graves of Isaac Newton and Charles Darwin.

Other notable figures have memorials in the abbey including author Jane Austen, Benjamin Britten, Noel Coward, Francis Drake, Edward Elgar, Martin Luther King and Oscar Wilde.

There is a memorial stone to wartime prime minister Winston Churchill inside the west entrance.

It stands near the Tomb of the Unknown Warrior, whose body was brought from mainland Europe after World War I. The grave represents all the fallen British troops.

Queen Elizabeth and her mother before her left their wedding bouquets at the grave.

Royal particular

The abbey – or to give it its full name, St Peter’s Collegiate Church, Westminster – is a ‘royal private’, meaning that it is exempt from any ecclesiastical jurisdiction other than that of the monarch.

The British sovereign is the supreme governor of the Church of England.

The abbey can regularly hold around 2,200 people, although most cannot attend Queen Elizabeth’s funeral due to the screen separating the nave from the chancel.

The royal family will be seated closest to the coffin.

About 8,250 people rushed to the coronation of Queen Elizabeth, in specially erected stands.

The church in central London played a major role in the life of Queen Elizabeth: in addition to her marriage, she organized the funeral of her mother and the celebrations of the main events of her record reign.

At church services, Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip almost always sat in specially designed birch chairs presented by the Canada Club in memory of fallen Canadians during the Second World War.

The monarch left her mark on the abbey.

Queen Elizabeth’s record reign is celebrated in a stained glass window unveiled in September 2018. Designed by David Hockney, it depicts the Yorkshire countryside in spring.

The Sovereign opened the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee Galleries in June 2018. Some 16 meters (52 feet) above the Abbey floor, they display treasures and tell the story of the church.

The abbey is still a working church and holds regular services open to the public.

“The English bourgeoisie has erased even the memory of the revolution of the seventeenth century, and recasts all its past in the form of ‘gradual changes’.” – Leon Trotsky

The adulation of the monarchy evidenced by the response to the Queen’s death and the accession of King Charles III shows how true it still remains, nearly 100 years after the Russian revolutionary Trotsky wrote those words. The combined efforts of the British (and international) ruling class and its many acolytes and hangers-on must ensure that we see the anachronism of hereditary power as a natural, gradually evolving process, filled with a tradition that provides stability and certainty.

The royal family reinforces class rule

The principle of the monarchy is clear: there is absolutely no qualification to be head of state except to be born there. It goes against the democratic principle that most of us subscribe to, but it has a very important function for British capitalism. Just as we have no say in who is the CEO of the company we work for, nor over the functioning of the Bank of England, nor over the mechanisms of the market which decrees the tripling or quadrupling of our energy bills, we should accept that those who have always governed us should continue to do so.

The events of the past few days show how every institution in society is geared towards reinforcing this message: gloomy and sometimes tearful news anchors speak of the Queen’s death as a personal loss; the large Republican minority in this country simply has no voice and is being criticized for daring to raise issues with the whole notion of kingship; working-class entertainment and activities (football and festivals) are canceled out of “respect” while opera and theater continue.

Britain’s royal tradition is masked by often obscure and incomprehensible rituals, designed to trick us into thinking it’s the pinnacle of a stable society. The prodigious wealth of the queen and her descendants is simply not mentioned, while instead we hear of her frugality and use of electric fires at a bar.

The British monarchy has endured into the 21st century in a way that often makes it seem outdated – in fact, it’s a central element of British capitalism and a highly ideological underpinning of a system of empire and exploitation that has endured ever since. hundreds of years. In 1914, Europe was mainly ruled by empires and kingdoms. At the end of World War I, the defeated powers – the German and Austro-Hungarian empires, the Ottomans and the Russians, whose tsar was overthrown by revolution in 1917 – all lost their monarchies. Britain retained its kingship, although it began to lose its empire. The Windsors, as they became known during the war after changing their name from German, retained many ceremonial trappings – ornate uniforms, cavalry and coaches, honors and titles – which they still retain today. Yet beneath it all lies a hugely wealthy and influential family, closely tied to the political system and the City of London, one of Britain’s major landowners and closely tied to the economic system itself.

The English Revolution

The revolution that took place in the 17th century was a struggle between the absolutist monarchy in the form of Charles I and the parliament he tried to marginalize. The resulting civil war led to the execution of Charles, the abolition of the monarchy and the House of Lords, and the creation of one of the first republics in the world. Although Charles II was restored in 1660, it was a monarchy on very different terms. Capitalism and the British empire are growing rapidly – ​​this is the era of the creation of the Bank of England and the East India Company – and the role of the king is now constitutional, ensuring the smooth running of these institutions. The “Glorious Revolution” of 1688 ensured no return to absolutism.

This whole process is largely hidden today. Unlike the French and American revolutions, there is no day to celebrate his achievements. To do so would be to admit the defeat of the monarchy and the possibility of a society without hereditary principles.

The 70-year reign of Elizabeth II saw Britain decline as an economic power but also as an imperial power. The countries of the empire gained their independence, although a number retained the British monarch as head of state. This was already beginning to change and will no doubt continue. In Britain, the monarchy will face many problems. The Queen had a level of popularity and respect, partly due to her longevity, partly due to her connection to World War II, which achieved almost mythical status in terms of propaganda and ideology, partly due to the fact that ‘She is not seen as a politician, who are widely discredited. Charles will have a much harder job. Already, polls show that his support is disappointing to say the least. There is much less support for the monarchy among the younger generations than among the older ones. There is also much less support for a “United Kingdom”, as Scotland in particular shows.

In addition, the social, economic and political crisis currently raging in Britain will resurface once the period of mourning is over. It is remarkable to have a change of Prime Minister and Head of State in the same week, but that is what we have just seen. Support for Liz Truss, even within her own party, is not strong and the plans she has for the energy crisis, which is essentially a large bailout of energy companies at our expense, will prove very unpopular.

Democracy not royalty

British politics is in a strange place. There has indeed been no government since June, it and parliament are now on hold until after the funeral, there is talk of postponing party conferences, as the TUC has already been. At the same time, there is a rise in class struggle and antagonism towards government and employers over the cost of living crisis. The political vacuum and growing working class discontent will not go unnoticed by the ruling class. He hopes he can ease the struggles and sees supporting the monarchy as a good way to do that. This reinforces the idea of ​​a “one nation” and that “we are all in this together”. We shouldn’t be fooled.

The strikes scheduled for this week have been postponed, wrongly in my view, but not the attacks by employers on workers. They will try to use this period to weaken the momentum of the strikes and reinforce the idea that effective wage cuts must be accepted “in the national interest”. But there is not a single national interest. We live in a class-divided society in which royalty plays an important role in reinforcing ideas that inequality is natural and the impossibility of fundamental change. It has no place in a democracy and is contrary to the idea of ​​socialism and equality.

Helped by a lucky break as a drive that was heading dangerously close to out of bounds on 17th slammed into trees and eventually crashed onto the fairway, the 2014 winner equaled his best score at the Surrey venue with a seven-under par 65.

Moving him to 11 under in an event reduced to 54 holes after Friday’s play was canceled following Her Majesty’s death at Balmoral on Thursday, McIlroy is only one behind co-leaders Dane Soren Kjeldsen and the Norwegian Viktor Hovland heading to the final. circuit.

“I’m excited for tomorrow,” admitted McIlroy, who conceded there was a touch of irony in having a chance of winning a three-round event after making a pun for LIV Golf, the home circuit. Saudi-backed breakaway from Greg Norman, to use this format.

“I haven’t played one of those events, so it’s going to be interesting to see what it does,” he added. “There are so many guys at the top of the leaderboard. So it will be a sprint to the finish, that’s for sure.

On a day when 2021 Scottish Open champion Min Woo Lee hit two eagles shooting a day-best 62, world number 608 Kjeldsen matched the feat in his equally impressive 64.

The 47-year-old is trying to emulate 2007 champion Anders Hansen by winning the showpiece DP World Tour event, while Hovland, who signed for a 68, is trying to become the first Norwegian to triumph over the iconic West Course.

Ireland’s Shane Lowry, who has the highest score of any player on the pitch, is in the mix again, sitting just two behind 2018 winner Francesco Molinari, but in-form McIlroy is definitely the man to beat .

He won the PGA Tour’s Tour Championship in Atlanta on his last outing, securing the FedEx Cup in the process, and now has his sights set on joining Henrik Stenson as the only player to make the double by also topping the Order of Merit of the DP World Tour. in the same season.

“I gave myself a few days off from East Lake, but my attention quickly turned to not just this event but the rest of the season,” said McIlroy, who is already leading the way in this race. in the title in front of Will Zalatoris, the champion of the US Open Matthew. Fitzptrick and Hovland. “I want to end the year on a high. So a good day tomorrow would put me on the right track to achieve that.

Along with his fellow players, McIlroy wore a black ribbon as a sign of respect for the Queen. “She’s been such a stable figure,” he said, paying a personal tribute. “I saw a stat yesterday, she ascended the throne two years (it was actually only one) before Ben Hogan won his first Open Championship. So that shows you how long she’s been there and the things she saw.”

American Talor Gooch, one of LIV Golf’s rebels on the course and criticized earlier in the week by defending champion Billy Horschel for his presence here, is just three strokes behind the leaders after a 64 , as is another LIV man, Spaniard Adrian Otaegui.

Regarding history, the palace is named after Maharaja Umaid Singh. He was the grandfather of the current owner, Gaj Singh. It was on November 18, 1929 that the foundation of the building was made by Umaid Singh but the construction work was not completed until 1943.

However, the king was only able to enjoy his creation for four years as he died in 1947. His successor Hanwant Singh also tragically died at a young age in 1952 in a plane crash. Later, Gaj Singh II succeeded his father and turned part of the palace into a hotel in 1971.
