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."

Asian giant hornets: Researchers open nest in Washington

\In late 2019 and early 2020, researchers discovered a nest of giant murder hornets, known as Vespa mandarinia, in British Columbia on the Canada-US border. However, researchers have now found one of the species in Seattle, Washington, which would suggest the invasive species is moving.

The subject in question was dead and had likely been so for a year.

The corpse of the species was very dry, which suggests it had been dead for some time.

To add to this theory, the murder hornet was a male, which do not come out of hiding until July or August.

All this evidence would suggest the species had actually been there for at least a year.

Entomologist Sven Spichiger from the Washington State Department of Agriculture said: "This new report continues to underscore how important public reporting is for all suspected invasive species, but especially Asian giant hornet.

"We'll now be setting traps in the area and encouraging citizen scientists to trap in Snohomish and King counties.

"None of this would have happened without an alert resident taking the time to snap a photo and submit a report."

The hornets get their nickname of murder hornets as they kill an average of 50 people a year.

An Asian hornet’s sting is so powerful and packed with so much venom it can cause victims to go into anaphylactic shock, dying within minutes from being attacked if they are allergic.

Asian Hornets are smaller than native hornets and have distinctive yellow-tipped legs plus a dark brown or black velvety body and dark abdomen.

The hornets, originally from south-east Asia, were first accidentally introduced to France in 2003, and they have made their way to the UK, with the first recorded case in 2016.

The first sightings in the US were recorded in November 2019.

Exactly how they made their way to Europe and North America is a bit of a mystery, but experts believe their migration is a result of global trade.

Researchers have said the risk of being killed by an Asian hornet is small, but there nonetheless

Researchers have said the risk of being killed by an Asian hornet is small, but there nonetheless.

Rather, the insects pose more of a threat to the already dwindling bee species.

Brent Sinclair, a biology professor at Western University, said: “I saw them perched on trees, hawking bees as they came into the hive – much like a sharp-shinned hawk at a bird feeder.

"If they can get into a honey bee hive, and they will, they’ll systematically eat their way through all the brood of a hive within a few days so they are really bad news for beekeepers. My understanding is death is not very common.

"Certainly, when I was in China studying with bee researchers, no one discussed them as being dangerous in that sense. However, the risk is there.”
