The World Is Yours (Nas song)

"The World Is Yours" is a 1994 song by rapper Nas. It was the fourth single from his debut album Illmatic, released a month after the album, it is considered by music critics as one of the greatest hip-hop songs recorded. It reached #13 on the Hot Rap Singles chart in 1994, it contains a sample of Ahmad Jamal's 1970 song, "I Love Music". The song and its accompanying video pay homage to the film Scarface; the song references drug dealer/crime boss Howard "Pappy" Mason. The song mentions the serial killer of the Texarkana Moonlight Murders, which went, still are, unsolved. A remix of the song was produced by Q-Tip featuring new lyrics. Sprite has put the title of this song on its cans and bottles in summer 2015 in part of their "Obey Your Verse" summer campaign which had rap lyrics on their cans. Songs from which samples are used in "The World Is Yours" include: "It's Yours" by T La Rock, but this is not accurate. Jazzy-Jay, who helped Rick Rubin produce "It's Yours" stated during a Red Bull Music Academy interview, that Rick Rubin did not allow the sample to be used and what is heard in "The World Is Yours" is a recreation of the words "It's Yours".

The piano sampled in the background comes from the song "I Love Music" by Ahmad Jamal. Songs that have sampled "The World Is Yours" include: "Dead Presidents" by Jay-Z. "Thief's Theme" by Nas. "Usual Suspects" by Rick Ross featuring Nas and Kevin Cossom "Jealousy Woes II" by Eminem. "Thief's Theme" by Jigmastas. "In Remembrance" & "The World Is..." by Blu & Exile. "Droga" by Hemp Gru. "Falling" by 1982 featuring Freddie Gibbs. "President" by Lil Wayne. "Better?" by Propellerheads. "Dead Presidents" by Chamillionaire. "Dead Prez" by Capital STEEZ. "Don't Forget About Me" by Noname. "Nikes On My Feet" by Mac Miller. "Dead Presidents III" by Logic. "The World Is Yours" by The Visioneers. "The World Is Yours" by Elzhi "My World" by Jay Electronica. "The World Is Yours" by Blazo. "The World Is Yours / Brooklyn Zoo" by BadBadNotGood. Jay-Z's sample on his song "Dead Presidents", using one of Nas's lines as the chorus, indirectly led to the Jay-Z vs. Nas feud, after Nas refused to re-record his vocals for the Jay-Z song, or to appear in the accompanying video.

The song was featured in the video games Tony Hawk's Underground and NBA 2K13. It can be heard in a scene in the 2002 film Antwone Fisher, appears on the soundtrack for the 2008 film The Wackness; the song is played in the 2015 film Dope. "The World Is Yours" was mentioned by Nas in his songs "Got Ur Self A..." and "Firm Biz".

Scouting in Kentucky

Scouting in Kentucky has a long history, from the 1910s to the present day, serving thousands of youth in programs that suit the environment in which they live. Kentucky has a early Scouting heritage, as the home state of Daniel Carter Beard. Burnside, in south-central Kentucky, is believed to be home to the first Boy Scout troop in the United States. In 1908, two years before the Boy Scouts of America was organized, Mrs. Myra Greeno Bass organized a local troop of 15 boys, using official Boy Scout materials she had acquired from England. A sign at the edge of town declares Burnside "Birthplace of Boy Scouts of America", an official state historical society marker commemorates the troop. Burnside is now part of the Blue Grass Council. Boy Scouts of America Troop 1 in Frankfort, Kentucky was established in 1909 by Stanley A. Harris. There has been a long-standing belief that this was the first Boy Scout troop in the United States. However, Troop 1 was formed under the British Boy Scouts and the charter was destroyed in a fire around 1920.

Nonetheless, Troop 1 is still active and is sponsored by the First Christian Church of Frankfort, Kentucky. Outside of Frankfort, in towns like Danville, Kentucky in Boyle County, 3 new troops organized in December 1911. Troop 1, Christian Church with nelson Rodes as Scoutmaster, Troop 2, Centenary Methodist Church with Sandridge as Scoutmaster, Troop 3, Presbyterian Church, no Scoutmaster listed. Of these, Troop 1 continues today as Troop 326 and Troop 2 continues today as Troop 27. In addition, small councils began in a number of places, with the Issac Shelby Area Council, made up of Mercer and Jessamine Counties and the Daniel Boone Council of Winchester and the Frankfort Council; these were among the councils who merged to create the Blue Grass Council in 1927 in Lexington, Kentucky. Kentucky claims an early unofficial girl's scouting group, an 8 girl patrol of Boy Scout Troop #17 in Louisville in July 1911; the first official troops was formed in 1917 in Scottsville. In 1914, the BSA gave local councils the power to ban African Americans from Scouting.

In 1922, the BSA revised that ban and allowed local Councils to create "shadow Councils" for their black and other racial/ethnic minorities. Until 1974, some southern councils of the Boy Scouts of America were still racially segregated; the Louisville Area Council, headquartered in Louisville, was the first BSA local Council to develop such a "shadow Council" and board members of that "inter-racial council" were permitted to serve on the Louisville Area Council's board without vote. The BSA's "inter-racial council" program ended in 1954. Most Girl Scouts of the USA units were segregated by race according to state and local laws and customs. By the 1950s, the GSUSA began significant national efforts to desegregate the camps and maintain racial balance. One of the first desegregations was Camp Shantituck in Kentucky, accomplished by Murray Walls in 1956; the National Scouting Museum was located on the campus of Murray State University in Murray, before being relocated to the National BSA Headquarters in Irving, Texas.

Recognized by Governor Carroll in 1975 for this achievement, he was just 11 years old when awarded his faith's religious emblem. Mike Walton of Rose Terrace became the state's only black Exploring representative in 1976, ran unsuccessfully for national Explorer President in 1977. Since that time, two other Kentuckians—James "Buddy" Lockhart of Owensboro, Colleen McWhorter of Paris, served as "Area Exploring Chair" of the area encompassing not only Kentucky but Tennessee. Hazen A. Dean, a Scoutmaster of BSA Troop 24 at Settle Memorial Methodist Church in Owensboro, KY was the first Kentuckian to receive a "70 Continuous Years of Service Award" from Boy Scouts of America in 1983, he served as Scoutmaster for over 50 years with Owensboro's oldest troop #24, from 1949 till death in 1984. Among his many honors, he received the Scoutmaster's Silver Beaver Awards. Recognized for having led 86 scouts to achieve the coveted rank of Eagle Scout. S. A. at that time. Governor's Outstanding Kentuckian Award in 1982 by Lt.

Governor and Governor, Martha Layne Collins. A Kentucky Historical marker #1747 was dedicated in special ceremonies held in downtown Owensboro by U. S. Senator and former Governor Wendell H. Ford and Owensboro Mayor Jack C. Fisher in 1984. A portion of the Boy Scout camp Wildcat Hollow at Russellville, KY was named in honor of Hazen A. Dean. Dean did not receive the Eagle Scout Award until he was an adult in 1958. There are six BSA local councils in Kentucky. Two councils are headquartered in Kentucky; the other four councils are headquartered in neighboring states. All of Kentucky lies within Southern Region

Gundersheim

Gundersheim is an Ortsgemeinde – a municipality belonging to a Verbandsgemeinde, a kind of collective municipality – in the Alzey-Worms district in Rhineland-Palatinate, Germany. As a winegrowing centre, Gundersheim lies in Germany's biggest winegrowing district and in the middle of the Rheinhessen wine region, it belongs to the Verbandsgemeinde of Wonnegau. Gundersheim has an outlying centre called Enzheim, once a separate municipality. In 769, Gundersheim had its first documentary mention in a donation document from Lorsch Abbey; the Weißenburg Monastery in Alsace owned a lordly estate in the municipality in the 9th century, of which there is documentary proof. In the late 10th century, the Weißenburg holding became Salian property, a Staufer holding. From the High Middle Ages, the ownership passed from one noble family to another at a quicker pace. Among others, the Raugraves and Rhinegraves, the Palatine Electors, the Dukes of Nassau and the Counts of Sponheim each had a share in the municipality.

In 1475, Gundersheim became a wholly Electoral Palatinate holding, governed as part of the Oberamt of Alzey. With the French occupation of the Palatinate on the Rhine’s left bank in 1797, the municipality became part of the Department of Mont-Tonnerre. After the Congress of Vienna, it belonged to the Grand Duchy of Hesse, as of 1918 it was part of the People's State of Hesse. In 1946, it passed along with the former Hessian province of Rhenish Hesse to the newly formed state of Rhineland-Palatinate. Gundersheim has at its disposal a Catholic church; the Reformation was established by Frederick II, Elector Palatine in 1546. The greater part of the population is overwhelmingly Evangelical; the council is made up of 16 council members, who were elected at the municipal election held on 7 June 2009, the honorary mayor as chairman. The municipal election held on 7 June 2009 yielded the following results: The municipality's arms might be described thus: Argent a prong hoe bendwise azure between two bunches of grapes of the same slipped and leafed vert.

Catholic church with Late Gothic chancel and sacristy from 1492. The tower is from the years 1521 to 1524; the church's three-naved main body was built in 1911 in Gothic Revival style. Evangelical church built in 1726, the tower in 1891. Warriors’ memorial from 1870 to 1871, created by sculptor J. Sipp with a statue of Germania on the pedestal. In the former limestone quarries is found the Rosengarten Conservation Area; the Turnverein Gundersheim 1863 e. V. is the oldest club in the municipality. It has departments for, among other things, jazz dance and health sports and badminton. Since 1920, there has been the Verein für Leibesübungen Gundersheim, which has about 430 members, departments for football, table tennis and gymnastics. At Corpus Christi, the local volunteer fire brigade and its associated promotional club have a one-day open house. During the summer, several winemakers take turns opening their wineries for visitors to come and look, taste the wines; each year on the last weekend in August, the Rotweinkerwe is held.

Gundersheim lies on the Autobahn A 61 and has at its disposal its own interchange southeast of the Alzey Autobahn cross, through which the A 63 can be reached. It has its own railway station on the Worms–Bingen Stadt railway with half-hourly trains to either Alzey or Worms. At the sporting ground is one of the municipality's two bus stops; the municipality has been characterized by winegrowing over the ages. Today there are a few wineries. In the latter half of the 19th century there were two match factories, although these both went out of business about 1890. Of greater importance was the limestone quarry, which until 1955 was run as the Gundersheimer Kalkwerke by Südzucker AG in Offstein, until was the biggest employer in the municipality; as well, there is a commercial development with various businesses in, among other things, logistics and production. The volunteer fire brigade has at its disposal more than 32 active and 10 youth members; the active department practises every fortnight with the four available firefighting vehicles.

Moreover, there is here, as there is throughout all of Germany, a readiness on the brigade's part to be called to duty at any time. That is to say, the brigade's active members carry a pager, triggered in an emergency, bringing all available firefighters – a number that can be reduced by commuters or by employers who will not comply – to the fire station to be ready to move out. Furthermore, the Gundersheim volunteer fire brigade has at its disposal a Helfer vor Ort group, a team of certified first responders who spring into action through pager alerts to deal with medical emergencies in their emergency medical vehicles, which they get from the German Red Cross’s Alzey district chapter; these certified first responders number 16 – 15 men and 1 woman – and form part of the Schnelleinsatzgruppe with the German Red Cross's Alzey district chapter, along with which the Helfer vor Ort are called to duty and health service. There is one kindergarten; the primary school in Gundersheim is attended by children from Bermersheim as well as Gundersheim.

Mohamed Bazoum

Mohamed Bazoum is a Nigerien politician, President of the Nigerien Party for Democracy and Socialism since 2011. He served in the government of Niger as Minister of Foreign Affairs from 1995 to 1996 and again from 2011 to 2015, he was Minister of State at the Presidency from 2015 to 2016, he has been Minister of State for the Interior since 2016. Bazoum served as Secretary of State for Cooperation under the Minister of Foreign Affairs and Cooperation in the transitional government of Prime Minister Amadou Cheiffou from 1991 to 1993, he was elected to the National Assembly from the special constituency of Tesker as the PNDS candidate in a special election held on 11 April 1993. After the January 1995 parliamentary election, won by an opposition coalition of the National Movement for the Development of Society and the PNDS, Bazoum became Minister of Foreign Affairs and Cooperation in the government of Prime Minister Hama Amadou, named on 25 February 1995, he was reappointed to that post after Ibrahim Baré Maïnassara seized power in a military coup on 27 January 1996, but he was replaced in the government named on 5 May 1996.

The PNDS opposed Maïnassara, on 26 July 1996, Bazoum was placed under house arrest along with PNDS President Mahamadou Issoufou, a few weeks after the 1996 presidential election. He and Issoufou were released on the orders of a judge on 12 August 1996. Bazoum was arrested along with two other major opposition politicians, including MNSD Secretary-General Hama Amadou, in early January 1998, for participating in a plot to assassinate Maïnassara, he was released a week after his arrest. At the Fourth Ordinary Congress of the PNDS, held on 4–5 September 2004, Bazoum was elected as its Vice-President. Bazoum was again elected to the National Assembly in the December 2004 parliamentary election, during the parliamentary term that followed he was Third Vice-President of the National Assembly and Vice-President of the PNDS Parliamentary Group. Bazoum was one of 14 deputies who filed a censure motion against Prime Minister Hama Amadou on 26 May 2007. Bazoum was re-elected as PNDS Vice-President at the party's Fifth Ordinary Congress, held on 18 July 2009.

Following the success of the referendum, he characterized it as a "coup d'etat" and said that the October 2009 parliamentary election was an "electoral farce" intended to add a "democratic polish". President Mamadou Tandja was ousted by a military coup on 18 February 2010. Bazoum said on the occasion that "this is what we were afraid of, a military resolution. Tandja could have avoided this." As one of the leading members of the Coordination of Democratic Forces for the Republic, an opposition coalition, he said on 23 February that the CFDR wanted Tandja to be put on trial for high treason because he had abrogated the 1999 constitution in his efforts to remain in power. According to Bazoum, such a trial was necessary to deter future leaders from pursuing a similar course, he said that the junta should hold Tandja until "democratic institutions" were in place, Tandja should be tried, although he said that he felt the death penalty would be unnecessary. After Mahamadou Issoufou won the January–March 2011 presidential election, he stepped down as PNDS President in March 2011, prior to his swearing-in, in accordance with the requirement that the head of state not participate in partisan politics.

Issoufou took office as President of Niger on 7 April 2011, Bazoum was appointed to the government as Minister of State for Foreign Affairs, African Integration, Nigeriens Abroad on 21 April 2011. Bazoum was moved to the post of Minister of State at the Presidency on 25 February 2015; the move was viewed as allowing Bazoum to focus on leading the PNDS in anticipation of Issoufou's bid for re-election in 2016. He was elected to the National Assembly in the February 2016 parliamentary election. After Issoufou was sworn in for a second term, Bazoum was appointed as Minister of State for the Interior, Public Security and Customary and Religious Affairs on 11 April 2016, he took office on 13 April, succeeding Hassoumi Massaoudou
