Ebola-free, second Dallas nurse to be discharged from the hospital
October 29, 2014

Amber Vinson, a second Dallas nurse who tested positive for Ebola after treating the man with the first confirmed case of the virus diagnosed in the United States, is being discharged from the hospital and is now Ebola-free, ABC News reported.

Ms. Vinson had cared for Thomas Eric Duncan, who contracted the disease and later died, at Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital. She had flown back from Cleveland soon before she was diagnosed with Ebola and was later flown to Emory University Hospital for treatment.

Unmanned NASA-contracted rocket explodes over eastern Virginia
Unmanned NASA-contracted rocket explodes over eastern Virginia
October 29, 2014

An unmanned NASA-contracted rocket exploded in midair early Tuesday evening, producing huge flames and loud booms along the eastern Virginia coast but no injuries or deaths.

Orbital Sciences Corp.'s Antares rocket and Cygnus cargo spacecraft had been set to launch at 6:22 p.m. ET from the Wallops Flight Facility along the Atlantic Ocean, carrying roughly 5,000 pounds of supplies and experiments to the International Space Station.

It exploded about six seconds after launch.

What was left of the spacecraft and rocket plummeted back to Earth, causing even more flames upon impact.

The rocket and spacecraft -- which together cost more than $200 million, according to Frank Culbertson, the general manager of Orbital's Advanced Programs Group -- are gone. And there's obvious damage beyond that, including to the launchpad, though the night skies made it hard to immediately gauge how much.

Jeb Bush 'moving forward' on 2016 bid, son says
Jeb Bush 'moving forward' on 2016 bid, son says
October 27, 2014

Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush is "moving forward" on a potential 2016 White House run and it appears more likely he will enter the Republican field, according to his son, who's running for office in Texas.

George P. Bush told ABC's "This Week" that his father is "still assessing" a presidential bid, but suggested it was more likely that he would seek the White House this time. The ex-governor declined to run for president in 2012 despite encouragement from Republicans.

"I think it's more than likely that he's giving this a serious thought and moving -- and moving forward," said the younger Bush, who is running for Texas land commissioner.

Asked if that meant it was "more than likely that he'll run," George P. Bush responded: "That he'll run. If you had asked me a few years back ... I would have said it was less likely."

Washington school shooting claims another victim
Washington school shooting claims another victim
October 26, 2014

One of four students injured when a freshman opened fire in a Washington high school cafeteria has died, bringing the death toll to two.

Three others remain hospitalized from the Friday shooting at Marysville-Pilchuck High School.

Gia Soriano, 14, who had been in critical condition with head injuries, succumbed to her wounds, the Providence Regional Medical Center said late Sunday night.

Witnesses say Jaylen Fryberg, a popular freshman, opened fire in the crowded lunchroom at Marysville-Pilchuck High School on Friday, about 34 miles north of Seattle.

He killed one student at the scene and injured four others before taking his own life, authorities said.

Student Zoe Galasso died at the scene. Gia died Sunday night.

"We are devastated by this senseless tragedy," Gia's family said in a statement. "Gia is our beautiful daughter and words cannot express how much we will miss her."

NY doctor recently back from West Africa tests positive for Ebola
NY doctor recently back from West Africa tests positive for Ebola
October 24, 2014

After confirming that tests showed a patient tested positive for Ebola, New York Mayor Bill de Blasio said, "We want to state at the outset there is no reason for New Yorkers to be alarmed."

New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo said that authorities are "as ready as one could be for this circumstance." He noted that the situation in his state is different than what happened in Dallas, where a man was diagnosed with Ebola and two health care workers who treated him contracted the virus.

"We had the advantage of learning from the Dallas experience," Cuomo said.

The governor said that it's believed four people came in contact with the person, and authorities are in contact with all four of those people. It is not yet clear whether authorities where counting only those people who came into contact with the man after he became symptomatic.

The Ebola patient finished his work as a doctor in the West African country of Guinea on October 12, left Africa two days later via Europe, and arrived at New York's John F. Kennedy airport on October 17, New York City health commissioner Dr. Mary Travis Bassett said.

He had no symptoms throughout his journey and immediately after arriving in the United States, said Bassett, who added that he checked his temperature twice a day after returning to the United States.

3 Denver girls played hooky from school and tried to join ISIS
3 Denver girls played hooky from school and tried to join ISIS
October 22, 2014

The first indication that something was wrong was a phone call from his daughter's Denver area school to let Assad Ibrahim know that she had not come to class.

He dialed her cell. And she answered. But, officials say, she didn't tell him that she was on her way to Syria to join ISIS.

She was just late for class, that's all, Ibrahim's daughter told him on Friday, according to the Arapahoe County Sheriff's Office, which filed a runaway report.

The American girl of Sudanese descent also kept quiet about her two girlfriends, Americans of Somali descent, who were flying with her to Turkey by way of Germany.

Hospital: American video journalist free of Ebola
Hospital: American video journalist free of Ebola
October 22, 2014

An American video journalist being treated for Ebola is now free of the virus and will be released soon, the Omaha hospital where he is being treated said Tuesday.

A recent test showed Ashoka Mukpo's blood is negative for the virus, according to the Nebraska Medical Center. The test was confirmed by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Mukpo will be allowed to leave the hospital's biocontainment unit Wednesday.

"Recovering from Ebola is a truly humbling feeling," Mukpo said in a statement. "Too many are not as fortunate and lucky as I've been. I'm very happy to be alive."

Mukpo, of Providence, Rhode Island, contracted the virus while working in Liberia as a freelance cameraman for NBC and other media outlets. He has been at the Nebraska Medical Center since Oct. 6 and was the second Ebola patient to be treated there.

"Our staff was confident it would be able to successfully care for another patient," Dr. Phil Smith, medical director of the biocontainment unit, said in a statement. "We've learned firsthand that caring for a patient with the Ebola virus presents challenges you don't face in the regular hospital environment. But our years of training on protocol in the unit and gaining familiarity with all the personal protective equipment was certainly an advantage for us."
