Note that below is their safety recommendations. Use at your own risk. The only 100% safe way is to stay inside and not look out and watch it on TV-online: https://miningawareness.wordpress.com/2017/08/19/nasa-television-online-coverage-for-aug-21-solar-eclipse/. The indirect viewing is safe, but one must resist the temptation of looking up. The problem with looking directly during the total eclipse is the time is very limited, and the area with a total eclipse, as opposed to partial, is limited. Thus, even looking during a total eclipse carries risk.
Eclipse 101 -Safey:
“Looking directly at the sun is unsafe except during the brief total phase of a solar eclipse (“totality”), when the moon entirely blocks the sun’s bright face, which will happen only within the narrow path of totality (https://go.nasa.gov/2pC0lhe )
The only safe way to look directly at the uneclipsed or partially eclipsed sun is through special-purpose solar filters, such as “eclipse glasses” or hand-held…

“My wish for you is that you continue.
Continue to be who and how you are,
to astonish a mean world with your acts of kindness.
Continue to allow humor to lighten the burden of your tender heart.”

You and I never have to fall prey to the devil! If we can shut every door, close every window, and seal every place in our lives through which the enemy would try to access us, we can prevent him from getting into the middle of our affairs.
One of the “entry points” the devil tries to use to enter our lives is relationships. If there is an unresolved issue or an ugly conflict with a loved one or friend, these conflict points often become entry points through which the devil tries to get a foothold in our relationships with those we love. Once the enemy is able to slip in through one of these “cracks” and build an offended place in our minds, then a wall has already begun to be constructed that will eventually separate us from the people we need and love the most.

“The truth is people tell 200 lies a day, study finds.”
So stated a recent newspaper article out of London. The study further revealed:
- On the average, people tell a lie every eight minutes.
- US $50.00 was “mistakenly” sent to 25 clergy and 25 car salesmen. In both groups, 15 cashed the checks.
The article concluded, “Dishonesty is a fundamental part of life.” Certainly the Scriptures would concur, “Everyone lies to his neighbor; their flattering lips speak with deception… ” (Psalm 12:2)
What are some of the reasons people lie?
- To manipulate – “Joe, you are one of the last ones to endorse the project. Surely you want to be part of the team.“
- To not offend – “Yes Mary, that is a lovely dress.“
- To withhold a portion of the truth – “Sales are up 20%!

This is the eighth video in the Beatitudes video series: Blessed Are the Peacemakers. This video series is an expansion and fleshing out of the Beatitudes (from Jesus’ Sermon on the Mount). The Beatitudes are the famous words of Jesus from His Sermon on the Mount given in Matthew 5:1-12.
Someone sent me an amazing expansion of the Beatitudes (from Jesus’ Sermon on the Mount). There have been innumerable (and many famous) interpretations, expansions, and dramatizations of the Gospels, such as The Robe, Ben Hur, The Spear, The Great Fisherman, The Silver Chalice, many TV series, many movies, and even Mel Gibson’s The Passion of the Christ (one of the highest grossing R-rated films in history) drew from multiple sources.
However, this interpretation/expansion/fleshing out of the Beatitudes is the best I have heard yet and it is remarkable. I hope you enjoy it! Please share this with…

Please bow your heads, close your eyes, and say this prayer for President Trump and for America:
Your servant, our President Donald J. Trump, is under attack like we’ve never seen before.
Lord, today I come before you to ask that the armies of Heaven are dispatched to do battle against the demons who are trying to destroy your servant, our President Donald J. Trump.
Lord, it says in Your word that where two or three are gathered in Your name and pray according to Your will, it will be done. And today I am joined by thousands who are praying this prayer. We ask that You pour out Your Spirit upon this nation and heal this land so that our president can do the work that we asked him to do.
Lord, he is under attack at every single turn — the Russian investigation, accusations of racism…

Of course her comment wasn’t her fault…it was Trump’s!
From Fox News: A Democratic state senator in Missouri is facing resignation calls for posting on Facebook Thursday that she hopes President Trump is assassinated.
“I hope Trump is assassinated!” state Sen. Maria Chappelle-Nadal wrote.
Chappelle-Nadal eventually deleted the post, but a screenshot was saved and shared on Twitter.
In interviews with local outlets, Chapelle-Nadal said she regretted her post but not her anger at the president. She blamed her outburst on the president’s response to the white supremacist violence in Charlottesville.
“I posted something on my personal Facebook and I should not have done that, and for that I am sorry for that,” Chapelle-Nadal told St. Louis television station KMOV. “But I am not going to shy away from what caused that anger at all, I’m not going to shy away from that.”
The Secret Service told the St…

A WAR OVER WOLVES
Outspoken researcher says his university and lawmakers silenced and punished him
By Lynda V. Mapes, Seattle Times environment reporter
By a slow slide of river deep in Washington’s wolf country, Robert Wielgus laughs at the tattoo on his arm of Four Claws, the grizzly that almost killed him.
“I would rather face charging grizzly bears trying to kill me than politicians and university administrators, because it is over quickly,” said Wielgus, director of the Large Carnivore Conservation Lab at Washington State University.

(Truth Theory) Whilst the news of Britain’s pledge to ban the sale of both petrol and diesel cars in favour of electric vehicles by 2040 sounds positive at first, reports have stated that there is a very serious downside that has recently been revealed.
According to reports, children as young as four years old are working in mines in the Democratic Republic of Congo in order to check the rocks for signs of cobalt, which is used to create the batteries that power the electric cars. The investigation found that there are currently around 40,000 children working daily in the polluted, dusty mines for as little as 8p a day.
The Daily Mail claimed that the majority of big motor manufacturers producing electric vehicles currently purchase their cobalt from the impoverished central African state, as it is the world’s biggest producer of the chemical element.
