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."

3/7/12

Thousands of normally solitary wolf spiders have blanketed an Australian farm after fleeing a rising flood.

Reuters reports that the flooding has forced more than 8,000 Australian (human) residents from their homes in the city of Wagga Wagga in New South Wales. But for every temporarily displaced person, it appears several spiders have moved in to fill the void.

"What we've seen here is a type of wolf spider," Owen Seeman, an arachnid expert at Queensland Museum, told Reuters. "They are trying to hide away (from the waters)."

The Australian Museum's entomology collections manager Graham Milledge told Reuters that there's even a term for the phenomenon, "ballooning," and that it is typical behavior for spiders forced to escape rising waters.

Wow, that is just incredible.  I find it amazing, after looking at the photos, at how God has made the natural world into such a wonderfully made biological chain that works out just perfectly.  The result of the flooding creates massive mosquitoes and flying insects and when looking at a large tree near the flooded river (in the one photo), the tree looks just like a giant net that would ultimately catch many of these pesky insects, therefore alleviating their effect on the people living nearby.  If not for these spiders reacting to the flooding, the population would be at the mercy of both the flood and the insects.  Thank God and praise Him for His majesty and wisdom!  Every creature has a divine purpose in His brilliant creation.

If it's anything like the "wolf spider" I'm familiar with, then they got an issue! Those things get big, almost as big as a Tarantula. They are grey and black, like a wolf coloring, though there are many different variations apparently being a really common spider.
