"Take It from Me" is a song co-written and recorded by American country pop singer Jordan Davis. It was released in May 2018 as the second single from Davis's debut album Home State (2018). Davis wrote the song with his brother Jacob and Jason Gantt, the former saying he suggested that it be about advice-seeking and Jordan gave it a more literally approach, being about the early stages of a relationship. "Take It from Me" peaked at number two and four on both the Billboard Country Airplay and Hot Country Songs charts respectively. It also reached number 46 on the Hot 100 chart. It was certified Platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA), and has sold 77,000 copies in the United States as of April 2019. The song achieved similar chart success in Canada, reaching number four on the Canada Country chart and number 67 on the Canadian Hot 100. It was also certified Platinum by Music Canada, denoting sales of over 80,000 units in that country. An accompanying music video for the song, directed by Eric Ryan Anderson, follows a couple's adventures through New York City.
Jordan Davis wrote the song with his brother, Jacob Davis, and Jason Gantt. Of the songwriting process, Jordan Davis said that his brother provided the idea of an "advice-seeking song", which he then chose to write "a little bit more literally". He also told Billboard that "is a song about the early stages of a relationship when it doesn't matter what she wants from you, she can take it -- your time, your shirts, anything -- she can have it. I think everybody has gone through that honeymoon phase of a relationship".
The song reached number two on Billboard's Country Airplay chart dated March 9, 2019, having been blocked from number one by Luke Combs's "Beautiful Crazy". On the Billboard Hot 100, it debuted at number 75 the week of January 12, 2019. Eight weeks later, it peaked at number 46 and stayed on the chart for thirteen weeks. It has sold 77,000 copies in the United States as of April 2019. It was certified platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) on August 16, 2019.
As a former caseworker in New York City, I was often privy to the frustration of my clients and felt compelled to help share their stories. The majority of public assistance recipients are disadvantaged mothers who deserve our empathy and support. I hope Take It From Me helps audiences understand what many women and their families are up against as they try to transition from welfare to work. Take It From Me aims to capture both the pain and beauty of their struggle.

Yes, I allowed them the space they needed to make decisions for themselves. Which was difficult to do because I was not as involved anymore. In the first few months of their freshman year both of my girls decided to take a break from communicating, but eventually they started calling more and now they call me multiple times a day!
Yes, I feel like my own experience of graduating from Texas A&M prepared me to offer advice to them, before they experienced it. Such as not running out of money! I also advised my girls to stay on top of their classes, and not wait a few weeks before studying. To study each night after class to keep the material fresh. I made it important for them to understand not to wait until the day of to study or do an assignment.
As an admissions counselor for the Evening UST MBA Program, I review hundreds of applications each year. Many of these applications are exceptional, and I happily accept their authors as members of our remarkably talented student body. But some applications are euphemistically not-so-good, and their authors, sadly, are not invited into the fold. In this column, I would like to share examples from the latter category with you along with some friendly advice. I will use real examples from application forms, essays, e-mails, and interviews, but I will alter specific content to protect the innocent.

After this episode, I began to treat injuries with a combination of cannabis and opioids, which enabled me to take fewer opioids for a shorter duration, which resulted in noticeably lighter withdrawal symptoms.
For some law students, their criminal law class is the first time they see the profound injustices that take place at every level of the criminal legal system. They read cases rife with systemic racism, implicit bias, and classism. When those who went to law school to make the world better ask how they can do good in a system that is so bad, they are almost always told to become prosecutors. Alternatively, they set out to become public defenders then realize that prosecutors are the most powerful players in the criminal legal system. Prosecutors decide whether to bring charges, what charges to bring, and recommend what the punishment should be.
But there is another reason law students and lawyers are told to become prosecutors: Judges are much more likely to have been prosecutors than public defenders and civil rights attorneys. For every public defender on the federal bench, there are a little more than four former prosecutors. The ratio is seven to one if you compare lawyers who represented the government versus lawyers who represented individuals fighting the government. At the Supreme Court level, Ruth Bader Ginsburg was the only recent justice who practiced solely as a civil rights attorney. Thurgood Marshall, who retired from the high bench nearly three decades ago, was the last justice with criminal defense experience.
As a progressive prosecutor, I know that not all prosecutors come with a tough-on-crime mentality. Justice Sonia Sotomayor, who has long been the most progressive member of the Supreme Court, spent the first five years of her law career as an assistant district attorney in Manhattan. But no number of prosecutors turned good judges will fix the fact that former prosecutors and the perspective they bring take up more of the bench.

I sat at my desk that Sunday night and filed a story about the Queen's rare broadcast to the nation. I struggled to type and felt like I was about to pass out. That same night I shook so violently from the fever that I threw up.
Had COVID-19 not existed and I had the same symptoms, I would have taken myself to hospital for help days earlier. My bosses and friends repeatedly urged me to go to hospital, but getting medical assistance was not easy. The authorities don't want symptomatic people anywhere near a GP's office or emergency department, so have built substantial barriers to getting tested and entering hospital.
Around the world, debate about the virus is shifting to how to return to some semblance of normality. It's an important discussion but one that must be carefully balanced with an understanding that people are still suffering from this disease, often alone. And that many who have been fortunate enough to avoid this virus so far will have a horrible ordeal, or even die, if the easing goes too far too soon.
Australia's own track record in suppressing the virus is remarkable. Prime Minister Scott Morrison and state premiers have done a good job in protecting the public from the sort of carnage Europe is experiencing daily. The risk of that success is that Australians become restless about the heavy economic costs of the strategy, and complacent about how easily COVID-19 spreads and how dangerous it can be. 2b1af7f3a8
