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."

Twitter will damn your soul, Saudi cleric says
Concern is mounting in Saudi Arabia that more and more people are using Twitter. So the head of the country's religious police condemns its use.

Life becomes more meaningful when someone from a long way away reflects your own thoughts.
It makes you feel less alone, less forlorn on your island of one.

I was, therefore, lifted to heights previously unimagined on hearing that the head of Saudi Arabia's religious police has declared that Twitter is an appalling waste of time, mind, and soul.
Actually, it's worse than that.
As the BBC reports, Sheikh Abdul Latif Abdul Aziz al-Sheikh mused that anyone who uses Twitter "has lost this world and his afterlife."
It may well be that the Sheikh's biggest concern is that so many of his people are now enthusiastically posting uncensored thoughts on Twitter. Saudi Arabia is said to be the fastest-growing tweeting nation.
However, it's hard to disagree with his ultimate sentiment.

Part of the purpose of Twitter is to try to make contact with the world one has lost. One sends out short messages in the hope that someone will notice, someone will hear, and -- in an exalted moment of magic -- someone will reply.
Twitter is a cry in the wilderness of the world for contact, attention, and care. It is, indeed, a soul thing.
Perhaps that's why so many Saudi Arabians are ululating down its lines. Perhaps they feel their cries in the usual channels are falling on reluctant ears.
Still, it's interesting that, by tweeting, one might also lose one's afterlife.

It's true that so many of us Thomases and Thomasinas -- who spend our lives mired in the glue of doubt -- are concerned about whether there is an afterlife at all.

Sometimes, it seems as if those that might be up there aren't too concerned about those of us down here. So concerned that, even if there is an afterlife, they might not let us into it.
Why, only yesterday I was walking through San Francisco's Union Square when I heard that I was "already condemned."

There was a man on a raised stage, a sign next to him reading reading "Jesus: Open Your Heart, Open Your Mind."
He was explaining that the fate of unbelievers was that they were going to hell -- which didn't seem terribly open-hearted.
I looked around me to see if anyone cared. All I could see were vacant smiles. Well, this was San Francisco.

Iranian Cleric: ‘Improperly’ Dressed Iranian Women Cause Climate Change


A senior Iranian cleric from Isfahan, Iran, said “immorality” among young Iranian women, stemming from dressing “improperly,” is resulting in climate change and causing the rivers and dams in Iran to run dry.
During his weekly Friday sermon, Imam Seyyed Youssef Tabatabi-nejad said, “My office has received photos of women next to the dry Zayandeh-rud River pictured as if they are in Europe.” Tabatabi-nejad added, “It is these sorts of acts that cause the river to dry up even further,” according to the Iranian Student News Agency.

He added that “improper veiling” also contributed to this unnatural phenomenon. Just last month, the Iranian regime arrested eight Instagram models for “promoting immoral and un-Islamic culture and promiscuity” by appearing on the social media platform without wearing the mandatory hijab, a head covering that is often required under Islamic Sharia law.

The Islamic cleric’s comments arrive at a time when the regime is increasing its crackdown on youth for espousing Western values through their social media accounts and attire.

Tabatabi-nejad also called for Iran’s morality police to crack down on this “improper veiling” and urged Iran’s parliamentary Hezbollahi forces to “carry out operations to root out vice” in these women. (Iran’s Hezbollahi forces were created at the founding of the Iranian revolution to help the late Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini in his quest to consolidate power. In their current capacity, they act as a sort of morality police force and an extension of the regime.)

Nik Kowsar, a writer, cartoonist and geologist who understands Iran’s water system and has also created several cartoons to illustrate the issue, explained to Breitbart News that approximately eight to ten percent of the waters in Iran’s dam reservoir “are being evaporated due to the warm climate in Iran and it’s been getting warmer in the last decade or so.”

He attributed this to an increase in the population and less population control over Iran’s new policies towards that. Iran’s Supreme Leader Ayatollah “Khamenei, years ago, announced that Iran needs more people,” Kowsar said. “He believed that Iran should have around 160 million citizens. By that, of course, he means he wants a more powerful country and in a way, yes, more Shiite soldiers.”

Kowsar discounted Imam Tabatabi-nejad’s comments pointing out that “you have enough women around the world who wear bikinis in front of oceans and rivers and they aren’t dried up. … The problem is you have a certain capacity for building dams in each region and when you overdo that and build too many dams, you eventually kill the river which is a live environment in a way.”
