Nigerian Health Minister Onyebuchi Chukwu said Friday that two new cases of Ebola have emerged in the country and, in an alarming development, they are outside the group of caregivers who treated an airline passenger who arrived with Ebola and died. Chukwu told reporters in Abuja, the capital, that the two patients are the spouses of a man and woman who had direct contact with Liberian-American Patrick Sawyer. Sawyer flew into Nigeria last month with the virus, and infected 11 others before he died in July--including the male and female caregiver, who both subsequently died of Ebola.
An astonishingly tragic year for air travel in Southeast Asia turned worse Sunday when an AirAsia plane carrying 162 people disappeared over stormy Indonesian waters, with no word on its fate despite several hours of searching by air and sea. AirAsia Flight 8501 vanished in airspace possibly thick with dense storm clouds, strong winds and lightning on its way from Surabaya, Indonesia, to Singapore. Searchers had to fight against heavy rain. The Malaysia-based carrier's loss comes on top of the still-unexplained disappearance of Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 in March and the downing of Malaysia Airlines Flight 17 in July over Ukraine. At the Surabaya airport, shocked family members pored over the plane's manifest, crying and embracing when they learned the news. Nearly all the passengers and crew are Indonesians, who are frequent visitors to Singapore, particularly on holidays.
It sucks to be released ... no doubt ... but Reggie Bush tells TMZ Sports he's not giving up on the NFL just because he got cut by the Detroit Lions. Just 24 hours after the Lions announced the move, Bush was out at Madea in Beverly Hills ... in a pretty good mood for a guy who just lost his job. But when he was asked if it was time to throw in the towel on his football career, Bush was clear that ain't gonna happen. It's not the craziest question ... considering Bush is about to turn 30... the same age as former Lions running back Barry Sanders when he decided to hang 'em up.
How to Get Away with Murder …again!

International investigators said on Friday that in order for the Islamic State to remain financially viable it would have to further expand territory it controls in Iraq and Syria and take over more resources. The Paris-based Financial Action Task Force said in a report that the Islamist group's need for large amounts of money to govern areas it has conquered meant it was uncertain how long it could finance its current level of activity. The task force, which is made up of government officials from around the world who are combating money laundering, noted that the group had generated large amounts of money by appropriating oil fields and from criminal activity such as theft and extortion.
