Ebola Burial Team Attacked In Sierra Leone

FREETOWN, Sierra Leone (AP) — Some in Sierra Leone ran away from their homes Saturday and others clashed with health workers trying to bury dead Ebola victims as the country struggled through the second day of an unprecedented lockdown to combat the deadly disease.

Despite these setbacks, officials said most of Sierra Leone’s 6 million people were complying with orders to stay at home as nearly 30,000 volunteers and health care workers fanned out across the country to distribute soap and information on how to prevent Ebola. The virus, spread by contact with bodily fluids, has killed than 560 …read more

Daniel Radcliffe Pays Back Cab Fare 2 Years Later, Stays True To His Word

Let it never be said that Daniel Radcliffe isn’t a man of his word.

The 25-year-old “Harry Potter” star has paid back the cab fare loaned to him two years ago by a group of reveling Irish athletes. In 2012, Radcliffe accompanied the group to a party in celebration of a big win, then found himself without cash for the cab ride home.

As proof, Conor Mulally, one of the athletes Radcliffe partied with, tweeted a photo Thursday of the €50.00 note the actor sent, along with a thank-you letter. Mulally’s caption reads, “Two years later, Daniel Radcliffe …read more

Jameis Winston Suspension Increased By Florida State After Vulgar, Misogynistic Outburst

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) — Florida State has suspended Jameis Winston for the entire game against Clemson on Saturday, extending its initial punishment of one half after the quarterback made “offensive and vulgar” comments about female anatomy earlier this week.

Interim President Garnett S. Stokes and athletic director Stan Wilcox announced the decision late Friday night. There had been criticism that the original punishment for Winston’s latest embarrassing off-field incident was too light. The statement released by the university Friday read, “Based upon the results of our continuing investigation of Tuesday’s incident involving Jameis Winston, we have decided to …read more

Sierra Leone On Lockdown For Second Day In Attempt To Contain Ebola

FREETOWN, Sierra Leone (AP) — Some residents ran from their homes in Sierra Leone to avoid being trapped during a three-day lockdown to contain the Ebola outbreak, a health worker said Saturday, a minor setback on the second day of a massive effort to confine 6 million people to their homes.

Nearly 30,000 volunteers and health care workers fanned out across the country on Friday and Saturday to distribute soap and information on how to prevent Ebola, which the World Health Organization says has killed more than 560 people in Sierra Leone and more than 2,600 in the region. …read more

Syrian Refugee Barber Provides Haircuts To Displaced Iraqis, Pays It Forward

Nawan remembers how powerful a simple gesture can be. As a barber forced to leave his home country of Syria due to civil war and benefiting from the generosity of strangers in the process, the 20-year-old said he now wants to be the one helping those in similar circumstances.

That’s why he – along with five other young Syrian refugees – helped set up an impromptu barbershop in Iraq’s Badjet-Kandela camp, where several Iraqi IDPs (internally displaced persons) took advantage of their free services, Liene Veide, a public information officer for the UN Refugee Agency (UNHCR), wrote in …read more

This Hadrosaur Had Such A Giant Nose, Scientists Are Calling It The 'Jimmy Durante' Of Dinos

Scientists are calling it the Jimmy Durante of Dinosaurs.

Not because of its talents as a jazz pianist, but because — like Durante — the newly-identified dinosaur Rhinorex condrupus had quite a large nose.

Story continues below.

The newly-discovered dino, “Rhinorex condrupus,” above.

Paleontologists Dr. Terry Gates, a postdoctoral researcher with NC State and the North Carolina Museum of Natural Sciences, and Dr. Rodney Scheetz, a researcher at the Brigham Young University’s Museum of Paleontology, uncovered the duck-billed dino, a hadrosaur, in storage at BYU.

El-Sissi: Egypt Will Give Any Support Required In Fight Against ISIS

CAIRO (AP) — Egypt’s President Abdel-Fattah el-Sissi has told The Associated Press he is prepared to give whatever support is needed in the fight against the Islamic State group but says military action is not the only answer.

In his first interview with foreign media since taking office in June, el-Sissi on Saturday did not elaborate what support Egypt might give, but appeared to rule out sending troops, saying Iraq’s military is sufficient and “it’s not an issue of ground troops from abroad.”
