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."

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;

‘No epidemic’ but mental health DSPs have risen by 50pc

The number of working-age Aust­ralians receiving the Disability Support Pension for mental health issues increased by about 50 per cent over a 13-year period, even though prevalence of the conditions remained stable.

Researchers led by associate professor Samuel Harvey from the Black Dog Institute and the University of NSW have raised the “paradox” after studying the prevalence and impact of conditions such as depression and ­anxiety between 2001 and 2014.

The unexplained surge in DSP payments for people with mental health issues is likely to reignite the political debate over the ­rigour applied to welfare assessments. It may also inflame tension­s between governments over the cost of support, including through the National Disability Insurance Scheme.

Reporting their findings today in the Medical Journal of Aus­tralia, the researchers dismissed the “common belief that we are in the midst of a mental health epidemic­” but warned that the impact of psychiatric conditions on work, society and the economy was significant, and still not fully understood.

“Over the same time period, the proportion of the Australian population receiving DSPs for psychiatric conditions increased by 51 per cent, equivalent to one additional DSP for mental ill health for every 182 working-­age Australians,” they wrote.

“While the increase may reflec­t better recognition of and greater willingness to diagnose mental disorders in working Australians, it also means greater emphasi­s on, and more research into, improving occupational outcomes for people with mental ­illness are needed.”

Growth in spending on the DSP has stabilised in recent years but it is still a significant part of the federal budget, forecast to cost about $17 billion in 2017-18.

Mental health experts have repeated­ly called for a greater focus on early intervention and effective treatment.
