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.”
September 20, 2017, 04:32:32 am Christian40 says: "The most popular Hepatitis B vaccine is nothing short of a witch’s brew including aluminum, formaldehyde, yeast, amino acids, and soy. 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."

Goat plague hits poor farmers in Africa, Asia, wider vaccination needed

Goat plague, a fast spreading virus, impoverishes millions of small farmers across Africa and Asia, but a campaign to eradicate it has drawn far less support than halting mad cow disease or Ebola, a U.N. veterinary official said on Wednesday.

'Peste des petits ruminants' (PPR) or goat plague, attacks sheep and goats - crucial to the livelihood of more than 300 million herders in the developing world - and costs those who can least afford it some $2 billion a year, the U.N.'s Food and Agriculture Organisation (FAO) reported.

Despite an effective vaccine which can protect animals, PPR has spread rapidly in the past 15 years into more than 60 countries, it said.

"We have the tools to eradicate this at its source," FAO Chief Veterinary Officer Juan Lubroth told the Thomson Reuters Foundation on Wednesday. "But we don't have the political will or the resources because it's affecting poor countries."

A plan to eliminate the virus by 2030 through vaccinations and other means is expected to cost between $4 billion and $7 billion, he said.

UN agencies have yet to issue a formal call for donations and the bulk of the money for eradication efforts is expected to come from national governments in affected countries.

In its current form, the virus cannot be passed to humans. But other diseases, including Ebola, MERS and anthrax eventually made the jump from animals to people.

The disease is still affecting people by depriving farmers of their livelihoods and stopping children in poor countries from getting the protein they need, Lubroth added.

Demand for meat and milk from goats and sheep in Africa is expected to rise by 137 percent from 2000 to 2030, and by even more in Asia, according to the FAO.

Goat plague is set to hit the supply of these foodstuffs, pushing up prices and making it harder for the poor to buy them.

Eighty percent of the world's 2.1 billion sheep and goats live in regions affected by goat plague, the FAO said.
