  • The Ebola stocks: Effect of an outbreak


      Ebola anxiety is running high. Some people have considered canceling visits to big theme parks and have aired worries about whether airports and public areas are safe zones. It’s no wonder that investors are assessing Ebola’s impact on the economy. Stocks of companies that make drugs that treat the virus have had a wild ride. It’s no small issue. Ebola has killed nearly 5,000 people, mostly in West Africa. The deadly virus has killed one person in the United States and on Friday, a doctor in New York City became the fourth person to have tested positive for Ebola in the country. One trader, Dave Lutz of Jones Trading, has compiled a list of stocks that are either directly impacted or could be affected by the spread of Ebola. Canadian biotech firm Tekmira Pharmaceuticals (TKMR)‘ stock surged in September after the FDA authorized the company’s drug for patients with Ebola in the United States. …

  • Ex-world champion Mulaudzi killed in car crash


    CAPE TOWN Oct 24 (Reuters) – Former world 800 meters champion and Olympic silver medalist Mbulaeni Mulaudzi has been killed in a car accident in his native South Africa. The 34-year-old died on his way to an athletics meeting in Johannesburg, a statement from the office of South Africa President Jacob Zuma said on Friday. “The nation has lost a true hero and one of our most disciplined and talented athletes who flew the South African flag across the sporting world,” said Zuma. “We wish to convey, on behalf of the Government and the entire nation, our heartfelt condolences to his family, ASA (Athletics South Africa), the South African sports fraternity and the International Olympic Committee.” Mulaudzi, who carried the South African flag in the opening ceremony at the Athens Olympics in 2004, won his silver medal at the same Games having picked up a Commonwealth gold in Manchester two years earlier.

  • ‘Many exposed’ to Mali Ebola girl


    24 October 2014 Last updated at 21:56 People entering Mali from Guinea are having their temperature checked Health officials fear many people may have been exposed to Mali’s first Ebola victim – a two-year-old girl. She recently arrived from Guinea, one of the worst affected countries, and has since died. The girl showed symptoms, including a bleeding nose, while travelling on a public bus through several towns, the World Health Organization (WHO) said. Forty-three people, including 10 health workers who came into contact with her, have been identified and isolated. The girl was being treated in the western town of Kayes, after arriving at a hospital on Wednesday. The child had travelled more than 1,000 km (600 miles) from Guinea through the capital, Bamako, to Kayes. “The child’s symptomatic state during the bus journey is especially concerning, as it presented multiple opportunities for exposures, including high-risk exposures, involving many people,” the WHO said.

  • Hailo says Uber blocked investors


    24 October 2014 Last updated at 18:41 By Dave Lee Technology reporter, BBC News The Hailo taxi app is in fierce competition with Uber in several markets – but particularly London Taxi app Hailo has complained rival Uber is blocking potential investors from offering funding. Speaking to the BBC, Hailo chairman Ron Zeghibe alleged Uber would talk to potential investors only if they agreed not to invest in Hailo or other rivals. Hailo recently abandoned its business in North America, saying it could not compete with Uber’s “astronomical marketing spend”. Uber said it did not wish to respond to Mr Zeghibe’s remarks. However, other sources close to the taxi app industry said Uber was acting with “common sense” and protecting itself from having its ideas stolen. Uber recently secured $1.2bn (£750m) in funding, valuing the company at $18bn. Mr Zeghibe told the BBC: “[Uber] can spend money like drunken sailors.” He added: “In raising that …

  • NASA Seeks Ultra-lightweight Materials to Help Enable Journey to Mars


    NASA is seeking proposals to develop and manufacture ultra-lightweight materials for aerospace vehicles and structures of the future. Proposals will demonstrate lower-mass alternatives to honeycomb or foam cores currently used in composite sandwich structures. Composite sandwich structures are a special type of material made by attaching two thin skins to a lightweight core. This type of composite is used extensively within the aerospace industry and in other applications where reducing weight while maintaining structural strength is important. A common use for these sorts of composites is the shrouds for launch vehicles and other key technology components that will enable our journey to Mars. The goal of this Game Changing Development Program effort is to develop and demonstrate scalable and cost-effective manufacturing approaches to produce ultra-lightweight core materials both as flat panels and curved structures. The final products will have half or less the area density of conventional honeycomb cores, with equal or better mechanical properties. …

  • Doctor with Ebola in New York stable; nurse is virus-free


    NEW YORK (Reuters) – Authorities retraced the steps of an American doctor with Ebola, who was listed Friday in stable condition at a New York hospital’s isolation unit, while seeking to reassure a jittery public that the threat from the virus was limited. Dr. Craig Spencer, 33, who was infected after working with Ebola patients in West Africa, on Thursday became the fourth person diagnosed with the disease in the United States and the first in its largest city. Spencer was awake and talking to family and friends on a cellphone, Dr. Mary Travis Bassett, New York’s health commissioner, said at a news conference. Meanwhile, Nina Pham, one of two nurses from a Dallas hospital infected with Ebola after treating the first patient diagnosed with the disease in the United States, was declared virus-free. She walked out smiling and unassisted from the Maryland hospital where she had been treated. The White House said President Barack …

Probably all of the above! The bottled blondes, who were out in full force with Bad Girls star Natalie Nunn, at Life Style Weekly‘s 10 Year Anniversary Party, held at the SkyBar at the Mondrian Los Angeles. For the soiree, Heidi opted to cover up her tatas in a black shirt and show off dem legs in a short black leather skirt. Aubrey O’Day raised a few eyebrows when she went on with a pretty intense zombie stare and dressed like a human doily, picking peach lace to clothe herself.

  • ‘Thank you, heavenly Father': Faith, Alzheimer’s and my husband Glen Campbell


    My husband, Glen Campbell, has stage 6 Alzheimer’s disease. Seven months ago, at the recommendation of his doctors, we placed him in a memory care facility close to our home in Nashville. It’s a community that’s designed specifically for the needs of those who have Alzheimer’s and dementia. They have all kinds of therapies and activities that stimulate parts of the brain affected by the illness. It’s a safe and secure environment where he receives around-the-clock care. ADVERTISEMENT ADVERTISEMENT It’s been good for him. He just seems more at peace there than he was at home, where he became increasingly agitated and frantic. He lives in a mental fog most of the time. He’s lost most of his language skills and has a hard time communicating. He still has moments of lucidity, though, and those moments let us know he’s still in there and that he’s the Glen we’ve always known. He can make short …

  • Romanian princess, husband sentenced for Oregon cockfighting ring


    PORTLAND Ore. (Reuters) – A princess fifth in line for the Romanian throne and her husband who admitted running a cockfighting ring in rural Oregon have both sentenced to probation and ordered to forfeit $200,000 from the sale of the property, federal prosecutors said on Thursday. Irina Walker and her husband John Walker pleaded guilty in July to one count of running an illegal gambling operation with at a barn-like structure on their ranch in Irrigon, near the Washington state border, where they held cockfighting “derbies.” Prosecutors said the cockfighting events came complete with a chef cooking Mexican food and alcoholic drinks. They said the Walkers charged attendees $20, while participants paid $1,000 to enter up to five roosters in fights. As part of a plea agreement with prosecutors that saw additional charges dropped, the couple admitted to financing, supervising and owning the cockfighting venture during 2012 and 2013. They were each sentenced on Wednesday …
