September 24, 2017, 10:45:16 pm Psalm 51:17 says: The specific rule pertaining to the national anthem is found on pages A62-63 of the league rulebook. It states: “The National Anthem must be played prior to every NFL game, and all players must be on the sideline for the National Anthem. “During the National Anthem, players on the field and bench area should stand at attention, face the flag, hold helmets in their left hand, and refrain from talking. The home team should ensure that the American flag is in good condition. It should be pointed out to players and coaches that we continue to be judged by the public in this area of respect for the flag and our country. Failure to be on the field by the start of the National Anthem may result in discipline, such as fines, suspensions, and/or the forfeiture of draft choice(s) for violations of the above, including first offenses.”
September 20, 2017, 04:32:32 am Christian40 says: "The most popular Hepatitis B vaccine is nothing short of a witch’s brew including aluminum, formaldehyde, yeast, amino acids, and soy. Aluminum is a known neurotoxin that destroys cellular metabolism and function. Hundreds of studies link to the ravaging effects of aluminum. The other proteins and formaldehyde serve to activate the immune system and open up the blood-brain barrier. This is NOT a good thing."

(ie, the infrastructure is very bad here b/c for many years, they were grossly underspent on. 1st Tim 6:10, the god of materialism has its roots firmly in the West) And remember once upon a time ago when shacking up b/w straight couples drew shock awe?

Exodus 20:5  Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them: for I the LORD thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me;

Radiation from Fukishima Reactor Reaches Canadian Coast

Vancouver, British Columbia – Scientists have detected radiation levels off the West Coast of Canada which they determined is from the Japanese Fukishima reactor. The authoritative pronouncement was made at the annual gathering of the American Geophysical Union’s Ocean Sciences Meeting. The scientists conducted their meeting in Honolulu, Hawaii.

As per their findings, the radioactive isotopes cesium-137 & cesium-134 have been detected off the Canadian West Coast. The obvious question is in regards to public health and whether these levels are safe for people. The Bedford Institute of Oceanography located in Dartmouth, Nova Scotia, says that the trace levels of radiation are well within the limits of what Canada deems safe for drinking water.

Tests conducted off the West Coast of the United States in 8 locations across California, Oregon, and Washington have detected cesium-137, but not cesium-134. The radiation was released into the environment on March 11, 2011 when a reactor at the Fukishima nuclear power plant suffered a meltdown as a result of an earthquake and concomitant tsunami.

Scientists have been conducting radiation tests ever since to spot the spread of the radiation towards Canada. Thus far, they’ve detected the radiation in the top layer of the ocean’s water up to a depth of 325 feet. Specifically, they are awaiting radiation levels from the plume that emerged during the peak of the reactor’s meltdown. That radiation is yet to arrive.

John Smith, a scientist with the Bedford Institute of Oceanography in Dartmouth, Nova Scotia, stresses that, despite the fact that radiation from Fukushima is now present in Canadian waters, the country’s residents have nothing to worry about.

According to Smith, concentrations of two isotopes fall below Canada’s current safety limit for cesium in drinking water. In fact, it appears that they are much lower than what is considered safe.

“These levels are clearly not a human or biological threat in Canada,” John Smith reportedly said.

UPI reports that current models put future levels of Cesium-137 at no greater than 27 Bq/m3, and maximum levels of cesium-134 at 2 Bq/m3 — both amounts below what the World Health Organization, the EPA and Canada’s Department of the Environment consider safe for human consumption.

In the US, the safety level of radiation is 28 Becquerels per cubic meter. Thus far, they’ve detected levels between 1.3 and 1.7 Becquerels.

In a video posted last month, Discovery News reporter Trace Dominguez told viewers there’s no reason to worry about Fukushima radioactivity in the West Coast or anywhere else in the U.S.
