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."

September 11, 2017, 06:59:33 am Psalm 51:17 says: The law of reaping and sowing. It's amazing how God's mercy and longsuffering has hovered over America so long. (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;

Lego's new kit teaches kids to code
1/4/17
http://money.cnn.com/2017/01/04/technology/lego-coding-boost-kit-ces-2017/index.html

Lego is making its blocks smarter.

The company is launching a new building and coding set at CES 2017 this week that brings movement to Legos.

The Lego Boost kit lets kids build five different smart toy models, including a cat, robot and guitar, with the help of sensors and motors.

The move follows the success of Lego's Mindstorms robotics kits, which are often used in computer science classes. Last year, Lego launched the WeDo 2.0 robotics kit to teach science and tech concepts to elementary students.

But its latest effort is all about coding for consumers, rather than a focus on education. The Boost kit comes with a Move Hub -- a Lego brick with a tilt sensor -- to power the Lego creations. Special bricks with a motor and sensors gauge surrounding colors and the distance from objects in its path.

Users will need to download a corresponding app featuring 60 coding activities. Kids can also add voice recordings via the app to give toys the ability to speak.

In addition, the app teaches kids how to "boost" Lego creations. Once they understand how the toy's sensors work, it's encouraged to build bases and add them to any creation. This means they can make their favorite dragon walk or rovers drive.

The kit, designed for builders ages 7 and older, will be available later this year for $160.

The announcement comes as more companies incorporate coding technology into toys, from programmable robots to friendship bracelets that vibrate with secret messages.
