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?

White House Details Obama’s $300M Plan To Help Detroit

Ahead of a Friday meeting in Detroit with several members of the Obama administration, the White House is detailing their plan to support the city in wake of its Chapter 9 bankruptcy filing.
The administration said their focus is on collaborating with city leaders and local partners to align existing federal resources to effectively support local priorities.
While an exhaustive federal bailout isn’t on the table, the White House wants Detroit to take advantage of existing programs to rebuild and right itself financially. The Sept. 27 meeting is part of ongoing discussions between city leaders and Presidential cabinet members concerning the Detroit’s financial troubles.
The Administration is committing to the following, in partnership with the state, city, philanthropic and private sector:
Unlocking and Attracting Nearly $150 Million for the Effective, Coordinated Demolition of Blighted Properties, Neighborhood Revitalization and Redevelopment in Detroit.
 Unlocking $65 million in Community Development Block Grant Program (CDBG) funds for blight eradication, housing rehabilitation, and other community revitalization efforts through the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), in partnership with the city.
 Demonstrating a public private partnership by providing Detroit with $25.4 million for commercial building demolition from the city, state and HUD, as well as business and philanthropic partners. The investments include:
 – $5 million in Neighborhood Stabilization Program (NSP-3) funding from HUD and the city;
 – $5.4 million of repurposed CDBG funding from HUD and the city;
 – $5 million in program income from NSP-2 from the State of Michigan;
 – $10 million through the fundraising efforts of philanthropic and business organizations.
 Ensuring efficient and green utilization of the recently announced $52 million Hardest Hit Fund allocation for blight elimination through assistance from the Department of the Treasury and the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), including the release of a “toolkit” for safe demolition.
 Providing Detroit with $10.18 million for affordable housing from HUD.
 Awarding $1.1 million for environmental assessments and cleanup of brownfield sites from EPA.
 Expanding access to a tax lien assistance program that has helped more than 1,600 families and counting avoid foreclosure through a partnership of the Michigan State Housing Development Authority and Treasury Department.
In addition to the $10 million in private funds for commercial demolition, other contributions to neighborhood revitalization from the philanthropic and business communities include:

 Giving $1.5 million in operating support to the Detroit Land Bank Authority between 2014 and 2018 through an ongoing commitment by the Ford Foundation.

 Putting $500,000 toward blight removal in Detroit neighborhoods and a $100,000 investment in a “blight text” technology that allows residents to participate in identifying and addressing blight by the Skillman Foundation.
Awarding and Expediting $30 Million to Improve Public Safety, Reduce Crime, and Decrease Emergency Response Time.
 Awarding $3 million in Justice Department funds for hiring new police officers, establishing a bike patrol, supporting prisoner re-entry programs, and supporting youth anti-violence programs.
 Convening police chiefs from across the nation to bring best practices and innovation to the Detroit Police Department.
 Expediting access to $25 million in FEMA funding that will enable the hiring of 150 firefighters and purchasing of equipment to prevent and detect arson.
 Working with the State of Michigan and local leaders, supporting 71 Detroit AmeriCorps members to empower youth, create economic development, and improve public safety.
 Supporting Detroit’s street lighting system through a technical partnership between the Department of Energy, Detroit’s Public Lighting Authority, and DTE Energy.
These public investments complement contributions from the philanthropic and business communities, including but not limited to:
 Providing $1.35 million in the next six months to improve safety in neighborhoods and to build a community policing model alongside Detroit Police Department and neighborhood groups by the Skillman Foundation.
 Improving the police department’s CompStat system and ensuring safe pathways to school for kids, as well as other public safety efforts, through a $300,000 investment from the Skillman Foundation and a $300,000 investment from the Kresge Foundation.
Deploying Nearly $140 Million in Federal Funds for Improving Transportation Systems for City and Regional Residents.
 Ensuring access to more than $100 million in transit grants from the Department of Transportation (DOT), including immediately releasing $24 million of funding to repair and rehabilitate buses and to install security cameras to protect passengers and drivers.
 Unlocking a $25 million TIGER grant and reaffirming the Department’s commitment to the M1 RAIL/Woodward Ave Streetcar project, a key priority for Detroit’s leaders, that will now help leverage more than $100 million in outside private and philanthropic investment.
 Providing $6.4 million in DOT funding to the newly created Regional Transit Authority (RTA) to help implement a much-needed regional bus rapid transit (BRT) system.
 Attracting potential investors through a New Market Tax Credit convening, hosted by the Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago.

 Awarding $3 million to support property acquisition and pre-development for Transit-Oriented Development on the Woodward Corridor to support the M1 RAIL through Ford Foundation, in conjunction with the $30.25 million revolving loan fund for mixed-use housing development announced by the Kresge Foundation and other partners last week.
Helping to Create a 21st Century Detroit.
