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 23, 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."

Ebola fear factor subsides in U.S. financial markets
Ebola fear factor subsides in U.S. financial markets
October 21, 2014

Investors should expect more calm to return to U.S. equity markets after some of the most volatile trading since 2012 as the 21-day incubation period for Ebola passes for many in Texas without new infections.

The market's big losses last week were largely attributed to concerns over global growth and plummeting oil prices. But fears that Ebola could spread in the United States after three people in Dallas were diagnosed with the hemorrhagic fever added more than a little froth to the market's recent convulsions.

By Monday, however, it was evident that investors were growing more sanguine over the Ebola threat as 43 people who came into contact with an Ebola-infected patient in Dallas cleared the 21-day incubation period for the virus.

Oscar Pistorius sentenced to 5 years in prison for girlfriend's killing
Oscar Pistorius sentenced to 5 years in prison for girlfriend's killing
October 21, 2014

From a globally lauded athlete to convicted killer, Oscar Pistorius' fall from grace culminated Tuesday with a five-year sentence in the shooting death of his girlfriend.

The sentence was imposed for the charge of culpable homicide, which in South Africa means a person was killed unintentionally, but unlawfully.

He was also given a three-year sentence on a firearms charge, but it was suspended for five years on condition he is not found guilty of another crime where there is negligence involving a firearm during that period.

That count related to an occasion when Pistorius discharged a loaded handgun under a table in a busy restaurant. No one was hurt.

During his trial, the double-amputee sprinter often sobbed at the mention of his girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp's name. He insisted that he mistook her for an intruder when he shot her through a toilet door on Valentine's Day 2013.

But there was very little visible reaction from Pistorius as the sentence was read.

U.S. airstrikes help push ISIS back in Kobani
U.S. airstrikes help push ISIS back in Kobani
October 15, 2014

The increased number of U.S. airstrikes against ISIS in the Syrian city of Kobani reflects more targets of opportunity, not a change in the campaign against the vicious Islamist group, a Pentagon spokesman said Thursday.

The strikes are helping Kurdish fighters on the ground push back ISIS militants in the Syrian town, according to sources there.

"There's been no strategic shift here, as far as I know, at least from the military perspective, about Kobani or any other town," Rear Adm. John Kirby said, making a unique appearance at the State Department's daily briefing.

In recent weeks, administration and U.S. defense officials have said it wasn't essential to keep the city, not far from the border with Turkey, from becoming the latest in Syria to fall into ISIS hands.

"We never said Kobani didn't matter," Kirby said. "What makes Kobani matter for us from an airstrike perspective is that (ISIS is) there, and that they want it."
