A leading physician in Sierra Leone's fight against Ebola has died from the disease, an official said Wednesday, as it emerged that another top doctor last month was considered for an experimental treatment. Ultimately, doctors decided against using the drug and he died before he could be airlifted out of the country. There was very little of the experimental treatment available, which has stoked debate about ethics on who should get it even though it hasn't been tested in humans. There is no way of knowing if the drug, known as ZMapp, made a difference in the few people who have gotten the now-exhausted supply of the drug. Ebola has killed more than 1,000 people in the current West African outbreak that has also hit Guinea, Liberia and Nigeria. Many of the dead are health workers, who are often working with inadequate supplies and protection.
Force Friday has begun the merchandising fanfare for the upcoming Star Wars film. Though the Force Awakens will release in theaters later in December, September will provide fans and parents the time to stock up on presents and memorabilia. Since the seventh installment will jump to a new timeline, a new aesthetic has been developed meaning collectors can now get their hands on the latest generation gear. Star Wars: Episode VII - The Force Awakens will release in theaters on December 18. Directed by J.J. Abrams, the film will feature some familiar faces through older cast cameos.
Otto Perez has resigned as president of Guatemala. On Thursday, following his resignation, the former president was jailed while he awaits charges of corruption. Perez has recently begun to face a corruption scandal's fallout, which has gutted his government. An emergency session of the Guatemalan Congress approved his resignation after the retired general abruptly quit his office overnight. Alejandro Maldonado was been sworn in as president to fulfill the remainder of the term. The former vice president will fill the office for only months. A court hearing has been set for Friday. The 64-year-old has denied any wrongdoing.
Vice President Joe Biden said Thursday he wasn’t sure if he and his family have the “emotional energy” to mount a 2016 presidential run. Biden made the comments while speaking at a synagogue in Atlanta — his first public remarks on the possibility of launching a White House bid since recent speculation has mounted. A presidential run would pit him against Hillary Clinton’s powerful-but-beleaguered operation, but the vice president said there was only one factor that mattered.
Not only do Chris Pratt and Anna Faris bring the fun to the red carpet, but they're also hilarious (and supersweet) on social media. Chris and Anna regularly take to Twitter and Instagram to share adorable snaps of each other and their cute son, Jack. In May, the actress nailed a "felfie" - as in, family selfie - of the group sporting hats, and more recently, she's been posting ridiculously cute pictures of Jack's antics, leading to a hilarious exchange between Anna and Chris.
A former Florida A&M University band member was sentenced Friday to four years in prison for his role in a drum major's hazing death. Judge Marc Lubet announced the sentence for 26-year-old Caleb Jackson, who pleaded no contest to manslaughter and hazing in April 2013 for his part in the death of Robert Champion, of Decatur, Georgia. In a plea agreement, the prosecution and the defense had settled on a three-year prison term for Jackson. The statute called for a minimum 10-year sentence and a maximum of 35 years.
