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.”

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?

Israel and Jordan sign ‘historic’ water deal to save Dead Sea

‘Most significant agreement’ since the 1995 peace treaty will see construction of ‘Red-Dead’ pipeline and provide water for both nations


Israel and Jordan signed a “historic” water cooperation agreement Thursday to carry out the “Red-Dead” project, which will supply water for both Israelis and Jordanians and replenish the dwindling Dead Sea.

Calling it “the most significant agreement since the peace treaty with Jordan,” Israeli Energy and Water Resources Minister Silvan Shalom traveled to Jordan to sign the agreement with his Jordanian counterpart, in the presence of US State Department and World Bank officials.

“This is the culmination of a productive cooperation between the nations, that will help restore the Dead Sea, and provide solutions to Jordan’s water problems,” Shalom told Israeli economic outlet TheMarker.

The “Red-Dead” project, first agreed upon in December 2013, will connect the Red Sea to the Dead Sea via a 200-kilometer-long pipeline that will lead 100 million cubic meters of water up north every year.

A desalination plant will also be erected north of the Jordanian tourist resort of Aqaba, and will serve both Jordan and Israel. The high-salt-content water left over in the desalination process, or brine, will be streamed into the Dead Sea, known for its high salt content.

The agreement will provide a much needed environmental solution for the Dead Sea, an important economic resource to both sides, providing both touristic business and industrial benefits.

Shared by the neighboring nations, it has been rapidly shrinking in recent decades due to diversion of incoming water from the Jordan River, its surface falling 22 meters since 1970.

The sides have also agreed to transfer water from northern Israel to the Jordanian capital of Amman.

The laying of the pipeline, which will be located on the Jordanian side of the border, is expected to cost $250 million, and may be partially funded by the European Union and the World Bank, according to TheMarker.

Construction of the plant is expected to begin in approximately 18 months, and the pipeline will begin to be laid in three years

A joint Jordanian-Israeli directorate will be established to execute the project.
