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."

Are Your Christmas Lights Endangering Pilots?

Decorating your house with Christmas lights is an easy way to spread holiday cheer.

It might also be a safety hazard for aircraft pilots.

Officials in Sacramento are urging homeowners to follow directions when using a popular laser light projector called “Star Shower.” The kit decorates your home with sparking lights, but if pointed towards the sky, the lasers can become dangerous for pilots.

According to NBC 4, on Nov. 18, lights from a “Star Shower” projector entered the cockpit of a C-130 Coast Guard plane.

After the incident, the Coast Guard alerted the police, who contacted the homeowners and told them to be careful.

Laser beams, even those from a small laser pen, can cause momentary blindness in pilots. A person caught intentionally pointing a laser at a plane could face prison time and fines.

Sgt. Morrie Zager flies helicopters for the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department, and suggests homeowners take caution if they choose to buy the projector.

“I would be very wary of having that item pointed into the sky because it could conceivably have the same negative affects to pilots as one of the single pen light lasers,” Zager told NBC 4.

On their website, “Star Shower” warns that “lasers should not be projected at or within the flight path of an aircraft within ten nautical miles of airport.” 

Additionally, they confirm that their product is compliant with FDA regulations governing lasers and with Consumer Product Safety standards — and emphasize that all lights should be pointed at the house, not the sky.
