G.M.O. (Got My Own)

"G. M. O." is a song recorded by American singer Mýa. A collaborative effort, it was written and composed by Mýa, Tink and Lamar "My Guys Mars" Edwards, while production was helmed by the latter as well with additional contribution from producer Resource. Released August 31, 2018, "G. M. O." is a synth driven and bass heavy midtempo ladies club anthem song and serves as a departure from Harrison's two R&B–rooted studio projects Smoove Jones and TKO. In honor of her twentieth anniversary, Mýa released TKO, her eighth studio album, thirteenth studio project overall to commemorate the release of her debut album Mýa. Digitally, the release was distributed through indie distribution company, The Orchard under Sony Music. To support the album, TKO spawned several singles – "Ready for Whatever," "Ready, Part II," "You Got Me," "Damage," and "Knock You Out."In Fall 2017, during a press run, Mýa stopped at BET and discussed to the staff at a BET Music Meeting about the music she has been making the past ten years independently.

While there and at that time unbeknownst to the public, Mýa shared "G. M. O." Featuring Tink and its video with the staff. The following year, in late August 2018, Mýa announced on her Instagram account "G. M. O." was available for pre-order starting August 24, 2018. "G. M. O." was released on August 31, 2018. Speaking on the recording process and its experience, Harrison gushed, "Recording "G. M. O." with the super talented Tink was awesome." Satisfied with Tink's performance, Harrison applauded Tink's delivery and perspective and felt Tink elevated the song with "more swag." Harrison lauded her producers MyGuyMars and Resource as well and their contribution to the song, commenting, "they're not only musical, but they keep their ears close to the streets, is so refreshing creating the perfect balance for me with a familiar, yet original sound." Directed and produced by Dana Rice and Mýa, the two had collaborated on "Ready for Whatever", the visual plays like an old-school iPod advertisement in its simplistic production fashion.

With only a Lambo and a few martinis on set, the predominantly black and white video features Mýa's typical choreography with small snippets of dancing silhouettes. Credits adapted from Qobuz

Since her own Poor Clare monastery had been destroyed and her sister resumed religious life at the Ursuline Convent; the revolutionary army retook the city and in 1794, she and several other nuns were arrested on the grounds that they were emigres who had returned without permission and were running a religious school. They were condemned for high treason. On October 23, 1794 she and her sister, two other Ursulines, two Bridgettine nuns were guillotined; the nuns went to their deaths singing the Litany of Loretto.

Liu Guitang

Liu Guitang, Liu Kuei-tang, 刘桂堂. Chinese bandit and soldier, involved in the Japanese attempt to control Chahar province in 1933. Noted for switching sides several times and returning to banditry. During the Second Sino-Japanese War, he commanded some Nanjing Government puppet troops; the former goat-herder Liu Guitang became a full-time bandit in 1915 at the age of 23 in the mountains of southern Shandong. He rose to command a large band of bandits, which surrendered themselves to a Chinese army unit that absorbed them into its ranks. Liu and his men were given new arms and equipment and some time deserted, they were taken back by the army, but deserted once again. Taken back again in 1931, they were sent by Gen. Han Fuqu to help garrison northern Shandong. After yet another desertion they were sent by the Young Marshal Zhang Xueliang to garrison Jehol against Japanese and Manchukuoan forces in early 1933. There Gen. Liu and his men went over to the Japanese and Liu was made a Manchukuoan commander.

Liu Guitang, now under Japanese orders, was sent to the southeastern part of Chahar province in the Dolonor region with the object of causing trouble for the Chinese there. He led his estimated 3,000 troops further east to Changpei. Reported at the time as a Japanese operation, it may have been done by Liu without Japan's approval. In late June a force of two corps of the Chahar People's Anti-Japanese Army under Ji Hongchang pushed northeast against Dolonnur, his southern corps, under Fang Zhenwu, advanced on Guyuan, held by his puppet army. Fang persuaded Liu to negotiate with him to change sides in return for surrendering Guyuan and other places on the Bashang Plateau. Liu retained command of his force, now called the 6th Route. Chiang Kai-shek began to oppose and subvert the Anti-Japanese Army, directing Song Zheyuan to incorporate, disperse or suppress the Anti-Japanese forces still under Fang Zhenwu; the Anti-Japanese Army was reduced by Song's activities. Fang Zhenwu as the new commander-in-chief ordered the army east to Dushikou.

On September 10, Liu met with Tang Yulin and Ji Hongchang at Yunzhou. Together they decided to reorganize the Anti-Japanese Army. After the meeting in September Liu changed sides, he was given the title of Bandit Suppression Commander of Eastern Chahar and command of three regiments stationed at Chicheng and Yunzhou. Liu's force blocked Tang's troops from following the rest of the Anti-Japanese Army south, leaving Fang Zhenwu and Ji Hongchang to continue alone. Over the next few months Liu and his men became discontented with their new employment, his forces clashed with the local militia when they tried to collect more taxes than were authorized. He tried to get his command posted to a more prosperous location where he would have difficulty getting food for his men. Sung Che-yuan refused his request. Liu and his men revolted on December 25, 1933, sacked two towns. Under pressure from the forces of Tang Yulin, Liu's men loaded their loot on hundreds of commandeered camels and donkeys and moved south into the newly created demilitarized zone in northern Hopei.

He moved back and forth across it to avoid the Japanese and Chinese armies, neither of which would employ him or his men anymore. On January 1, 1934, his force attacked a town within 15 miles of Peiking. Troops of Gen. Han Fuqu were defeated Liu's force, he reached the Japanese concession in Tientsin. There he was said to have once more offered his services to the Japanese, it seems he returned to Shandong sometime late in the 1930s, during the Second Sino-Japanese War commanded a puppet garrison for the defense of Juxian in support of the Japanese attack on Linyi during the Battle of Xuzhou. He managed to become Commander of over 1000 puppet troops for the Nanjing government in Shandong province, it is claimed he was killed in combat with Communist guerrilla troops in November 1943.
