Spotify puts lyrics in songs all over the world: the feature is free for everyone

Spotify has finally launched the feature that allows you to play lyrics in real time worldwide, having only made it available in some countries. The lyrics are provided by Musixmatch, through a database that is expected to cover “over 8 million” of songs. Lyrics on Spotify work on all the updated apps of the streaming music service, including those for iOS, Android, desktop, game consoles and smart TVs. You don’t need the Premium subscription to get them, since even users who log in for free can view them. In addition to using the lyrics out of curiosity or to get help in singing, it is also possible to share them on social media. Spotify claims the feature will be available for the “majority” of its music library. How to view lyrics on Spotify To access the lyrics on compatible songs via mobile app, simply access the “Now Playing” screen of a song and scroll up, while on the desktop there is a new button with a microphone icon. Also from the TV, still in the “Now Playing” screen, it is possible to access the lyrics of the song with the icon in the shape of a microphone.

20th November (2021) – Declaration of the Rights of the Child

The Declaration of the Rights of the Child, sometimes known as the Geneva Declaration of the Rights of the Child, is an international document promoting child rights, drafted by Eglantyne Jebb and adopted by the League of Nations in 1924, and adopted in an extended form by the United Nations in 1959.

The text of the document, as published by the International Save the Children Union in Geneva on 23 February 1923, is as follows:

  1. The child must be given the means requisite for its normal development, both materially and spiritually.
  2. The child that is hungry must be fed, the child that is sick must be nursed, the child that is backward must be helped, the delinquent child must be reclaimed, and the orphan and the waif must be sheltered and succoured.
  3. The child must be the first to receive relief in times of distress.
  4. The child must be put in a position to earn a livelihood, and must be protected against every form of exploitation.
  5. The child must be brought up in the consciousness that its talents must be devoted to the service of its fellow men.

This text was endorsed by the League of Nations General Assembly on 26 November 1924 as the World Child Welfare Charter, and was the first human rights document approved by an inter-governmental institution. It was reaffirmed by the League in 1934. Heads of State and Government pledged to incorporate its principles in domestic legislation. In France, it was ordered to be displayed in every school.

After considering a number of options, including that of drafting an entirely new declaration, the United Nations resolved in 1946 to adopt the document, in a much expanded version, as its own statement of children’s rights. Many different governments were involved in the drafting process. A slightly expanded version, with seven points in place of five, was adopted in 1948. Then on 10 December 1959 the United Nations General Assembly adopted a Declaration of the Rights of the Child, based on the structure and contents of the 1924 original, with ten principles. An accompanying resolution, proposed by the delegation of Afghanistan, called on governments to recognise these rights, strive for their acceptance, and publicise the document as widely as possible. This date has been adopted as the Universal Children’s Day.

This Declaration was followed in 1989 by the Convention on the Rights of the Child, adopted by the UN General Assembly, adopted and opened for signature, ratification and accession by General Assembly resolution 44/25 of 20 November 1989; entry into force 2 September 1990, in accordance with article 49.

♬ STING – Rushing Water

here is the new song of sting

LYRIC

How many times have I had this dream
That breaks me from my slumber?
How will I ever get to sleep again
Counting sheep in a book of numbers?How many times have I had this dream
With you walking towards me from the river?
And when will I ever get to rest again
Wondering if I can deliver?This is the sound of rushing water
Flooding through my brain
This is the sound of God’s own daughter
Calling out your nameThis is the sound of atmospheres
Three metric tonnes of pressure
This is the sum of all my fears
Something I just can’t measureI remember the story of Jonah
He was trapped in the belly of a whale
How many times must he succeed?
How many times must he fail?This is the sound of rushing water (rushing water)
Flooding through my brain (flooding through my brain)
This is the sound of God’s own daughter (own daughter)
Calling out your nameI’ll see my shrink on an analyst’s couch
Hit me with a hammer and I’ll say, ouch
What we have here is so easy to solve
Just takes a firm purpose and some resolveThis is the sound of rushing water (rushing water)
Flooding through my brain (flooding through my brain)
This is the sound of God’s own daughter (own daughter)
Calling out your nameThis is the sound of rushing water (rushing water)
Flooding through my brain (flooding through my brain)
This is the sound of God’s own daughter (own daughter)
Calling out your nameYour name, your name
Your name, your name
Your name, your name, your name, yourEase into the water
Flooding through your brain
Ease into the water
Calling out your nameEase into the water
Flooding through your brain
Ease into the water
