A doctor in New York City who recently returned from treating Ebola patients in Guinea tested positive for the Ebola virus Thursday, becoming the city’s first diagnosed case. The doctor, Craig Spencer, was rushed to Bellevue Hospital Center on Thursday and placed in isolation while health care workers spread out across the city to trace anyone he might have come into contact with in recent days.

A further test will be conducted by the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to confirm the initial test. While officials have said they expected isolated cases of the disease to arrive in New York eventually, and had been preparing for this moment for months, the first case highlighted the challenges surrounding containment of the virus, especially in a crowded metropolis.

More than four decades ago, Peter Ostrum was a little boy living in Cleveland, participating in a local children's theater. Then, the sixth-grader was cast in a film called "Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory," and, suddenly, everyone knew who he was.

Ostrum became famous for his portrayal of cute, blond-haired Charlie, the lucky boy who won the Golden Ticket. It was his first -- and only -- movie role. In the years since the 1971 release of "Willy Wonka," Ostrum says that his days being recognized as Charlie are long behind him. From the start, Ostrum never had his sights set on a career in Hollywood and says that his casting in "Willy Wonka" simply came down to good timing. The film captivated audiences in the '70s and remains popular with an entirely different generation today. He still keeps in touch with other cast members from the film, even gathering with the "Wonka kids" to do celebrity signing events around the country. "Am I famous in my eyes?

How American parenting is killing the American marriage - Quartz. At eleven o’clock in the morning on the eleventh day of the eleventh month, guns across Europe fell silent. An assassination in Sarajevo that had turned into a grinding, grueling conflict was coming to a diplomatic close—but it was not over. For Americans, Nov. 11 is celebrated as Veteran’s Day, a time to honor the brave servicemen and women who have fought for our nation. For much of the Muslim world, Nov. 11 marks the end of a kind of order: the Sunni caliphate, an office that had been more or less occupied from the death of Mohammed in 632, to the exile of the last Ottoman Caliph in 1924. It took several more generations, and another, even worse war, for the new Europe to be born, a continent at peace with itself and with the world.

And yet there is still no lasting peace in the Muslim world, no resolution, no transition to a new order. In the West, most people now think of ISIL when they hear “caliphate.” There has never been a more urgent need for religious renewal.

Middle School Students Do Something Amazing for a Special Little Boy. Old 1920s Photos From an Alligator Farm in Los Angeles. The Los Angeles Alligator Farm was a pretty crazy place as seen from these old photos from the Los Angeles Public Library. Located next door to the Los Angeles Ostrich Farm in the Lincoln Heights neighborhood of Los Angeles, CA, it served as both an alligator farm and a major city tourist attraction from 1907 until 1953. It was eventually shut down in 1984 after the annual attendance dropped below 50,000. All the animals were relocated to a private estate in Florida. The 1920s wasn’t a period of many safety regulations. Even for kids. Or dogs. “I’ll take a glass of your finest milk, barkeep!” Newborn baby alligators being counted, and boxed for some insane reason. Nothing beats a nice relaxing massage.

We physicians with all our experience, know how and authority often acquire a rather large selfishness that tends to make it hard to accept we are wrong. So, here it is. I openly admit to being mistaken. As a heart surgeon with 25 years experience, having done more than 5,000 open-heart surgeries, today is my day to right the wrong with medical and scientific proof.

I trained for many years with other prominent physicians labelled “opinion makers.” The only accepted therapy was prescribing medications to lower cholesterol and a diet that severely restricted fat intake.

If America really cared about solving the problem of homelessness among it’s citizenry, here’s an idea that would work. Oh- and that opening line references the fact that as far back as 2011 empty houses in America outnumbered homeless families by five times, according to Amnesty International. Anyway, let’s say the problem with homeless people in America was a result of not enough housing. Then, this idea would work. Did you know that you can make houses out of plastic bottles? By filling them with sand, and molding them together with mud or cement, the walls created are actually bullet proof, fire proof, and will maintain an comfortable indoor temperature of 64 degrees in the summer time.

And it’s not like there is any shortage on used plastic bottles out there. “The United States uses 129.6 Million plastic bottles per day which is 47.3 Billion plastic bottles per year.

Ask Well: How Does Ebola Spread? How Long Can the Virus Survive? Updated on Oct. 23. | My original answer was simply no.

A more nuanced answer is that it is extremely unlikely to spread through public transit. Many readers have argued that the original answer was inconsistent with some statements by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention or the World Health Organization. In fact, some C.D.C. and W.H.O. statements are inconsistent with each other and shifting as more questions are raised. The W.H.O. on Monday issued a new Ebola situation assessment entitled “What We Know About Transmission of the Ebola Virus Among Humans.”

Starting off my answer with a blanket “No” was wrong. It is extremely unlikely for the Ebola virus to spread through public transit for several reasons. Not all viruses build up to infectious doses in all bodily fluids. According to the recent W.H.O. statement, high levels of Ebola virus in saliva are rare except in the sickest victims, and whole virus has never been found in sweat. So how might Ebola be passed on a subway?
