Trump Invokes God at SOTU, While Pelosi Misquotes Bible
President Trump ranged far and wide in his State of the Union Address on Tuesday night, referring to the myriad of issues he has dealt with in the first half of his presidency but in a manner similar to many of his other landmark speeches, the president invoked the name of God six times. This topped his inaugural address in which he invoked God’s name five times. Nancy Pelosi frequently quotes what she claimed was her favorite verse in the Bible. In an Earth Day press release, she wrote, “The Bible tells us in the Old Testament, ‘To minister to the needs of God’s creation is an act of worship. To ignore those needs is to dishonor the God who made us.” She has reportedly quoted the false passage at least 11 times from the House floor since 2002, according to the Congressional Record. As most BIN readers probably know, these words do not actually appear in the Bible. When called out for her error, Pelosi remained unrepentant.

Northern California’s Cascadia Subduction Zone Hit by 11 Earthquakes Over Weekend
Over the weekend, nearly a dozen earthquakes struck within a relatively small region just off the coast of Northern California, according to the United States Geological Survey (USGS). … the area where the earthquakes struck is particularly geologically active because it is located near what’s known as the “Mendocino Triple Junction,” which is the intersection between three tectonic plates—the North American plate, the Pacific plate and the Gorda plate.
Bacteria found to sacrifice themselves to protect the colony from antibiotics
For such simple organisms, bacteria are surprisingly crafty when it comes to defending themselves from antibiotics. They build biofilms to protect colonies, hibernate until the danger passes, and of course they’re steadily evolving genetic resistance to our best drugs. Now researchers at Princeton and California State University-Northridge have discovered a new bacterial defense mechanism, where dying bugs will “hoard” antibiotics to allow their neighbors to grow unharmed.
CRISPR-CasX could be the next small gene-editing enzyme
The Cas9 protein has proven effective over the last few years, but alternatives, such as Cas12a and Cas12b, are quickly emerging. Now, researchers at UC Berkeley have tested a new candidate, CasX, which seems to have a few advantages of its own.
Ancient glacial landscape unexpectedly found in African desert
Drumlins are a distinct type of hill, where the ground rises fairly steeply at one side and then tapers off in a more gentle slope down the other end. These formations are usually found in places you’d probably expect to have once been covered in glaciers – they’re common in Canada and the northern states of the US, as well as England, Ireland, Scotland, Sweden, Germany, Finland and Greenland. That makes the newly discovered drumlins in Namibia unusual.

Hammer and pickle: Vietnam-style reform would mean big changes for North Korea
Vietnamese reforms have seen per capita GDP soar almost five-fold since 1986 and kept Vietnam’s ruling Communist Party, which tolerates little dissent, firmly in power. But it has necessitated political change and levels of individual freedoms that would require major reforms in North Korea, where Kim Jong Un exercises almost total control and is revered by state propaganda as a living deity.

Real ID laws are a back door to adult vaccine mandates across the U.S., experts say

All the vaccines in the world can’t stop the Los Angeles TYPHUS epidemic that’s exploding due to third-world socialist conditions
…While measles is a viral infection which a strong immune system can fend off, typhus is a bacterial infection which, left untreated, can cause serious complications and results in death in at least 40 percent of cases. There is no vaccine against typhus, which perhaps explains why the media is largely ignoring this story. Ironically, while vaccines have a sketchy track record at best at preventing diseases like measles, typhus can be eliminated easily through simple hygiene practices. And yet it continues to spread across the city of Los Angeles.
