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?

Collapsing Kenai razor clam population forces shutdown of beaches

A collapse of the razor clam population across Kenai Peninsula beaches has prompted the Alaska Department of Fish and Game to close most of them to clamming for the rest of the year, the first time biologists have imposed such a drastic measure.

“It’s such an important resource,” said Carol Kerkvliet, a Homer-based biologist with Fish and Game. “All the information we have points in one direction, that these beaches need to be closed.”

The latest information is a 2014 survey of the clam populations on Kenai beaches. It found:

• The population at the Clam Gulch beach was 89 percent lower than average.

• At Ninilchik South beach, the Kenai’s most popular, the population was down 82 percent.

• At both locations, the number of juvenile clams was also down sharply -- ranging from 36 percent to 86 percent. That’s an indication that no recovery is on the horizon.

The decline has worsened over the decades. The peak year was 1994, when Fish and Game estimated the harvest at 1.3 million clams captured over 48,000 digger days (a clam-digger spending at least part of a day on the beach). By 2013, the last year for which information is available, the harvest was down to 174,000 clams over 24,000 digger days.

Similarly, state harvest surveys showed that average number of clams harvested by each digger declined from 25 early last decade to 7 in 2013.

Even that is more than zero.

“If it were harvest-driven, we would have seen the effects earlier,” Kerkvliet said. “Some type of environmental factor is playing a role in this.”

Exactly what environmental factor remains a mystery.

“The cause of the decline … on east-side beaches is unknown,” said a press release from Fish and Game. In addition, Kerkvliet noted, mature clams are not living to as old an age and as large a size as they previously did.

All clam species will be off limits beginning Sunday from the mouth of the Kenai River to Homer to the thousands of diggers who spend time on the beaches with clam shovels and clam guns. The shutdown is the latest body blow for outdoorsmen and women on the Kenai, as well as the businesses that cater to them. Poor returns of king salmon to the Kenai and other Peninsula rivers have resulted in frequent closures, hampering anglers and fishing businesses for several years.

Tuesday’s emergency order follows previous efforts to limit the take, including sharp cutbacks in bag limits and, last summer, the closure of a section of the beach at Ninilchik.
