Two Americans who had been working to treat Ebola patients in Africa have been stricken by the disease. Officials say they will be taken to Atlanta's Emory University Hospital in a tightly sealed isolation unit. The current outbreak in Liberia, Guinea and Sierra Leone has sickened more than 1,300 people and killed more than 700 this year. While the fatality rate for Ebola can be as high as 90 percent, health officials in the three countries say people have recovered from the virus and the current death rate is about 70 percent.
Initial spot checks showed crowds were thin at U.S. stores and shopping malls in the early hours of Friday as shoppers responded to early Black Friday discounts with a mix of enthusiasm and caution. Reflecting the new normal in U.S. holiday shopping, which was traditionally kicked off the next day, Black Friday, many shoppers headed out to stores on Thanksgiving evening. In an effort to attract the most eager holiday shoppers and fend off competition from Amazon.com, U.S. retailers have increasingly extended their holiday deals by opening stores on the evening of Thanksgiving.
The Raspberry Pi Foundation launched a surprise new Raspberry Pi board in the form of the $5 Zero on Thursday. It’s by far the cheapest PC you can buy today, but the Foundation wasn’t even considering creating such a low cost device until Eben Upton, founder of the Raspberry Pi Foundation, had a chat with Google’s Eric Schmidt. Having already awarded the Foundation a grant of $1 million, Schmidt was eager to know what the next product would be. Upton happily told him, but Schmidt was not impressed and explained that cheaper is better because it’s, “very hard to compete with cheap.” The latest version still counts as a fully functional computer, you can plug storage and peripherals into (just like the other Pi boards), but it removes the cost barrier.
Before gridlock becomes truly disastrous, city planning needs to be restructured, and some automakers are considering tackling this issue as a priority. One of these automakers is Audi, and the company believes self-parking cars are part of the answer. Working with the Boston suburb of Somerville, the German automaker Audi wants to develop new ways of moving people around and reconsidering how cities are designed, which is all under their Urban Future Initiative. Christian Gärtner, who is part of the project said, “The car shaped the city in the 20th century, and in the 21st century the city will shape the car.”
An issue Democratic frontrunner Hillary Clinton faces as she courts organized labor is a potential enthusiasm gap. Clinton, the Democratic front-runner, has racked up a string of formal endorsements, but many rank-and-file union members remain drawn to Sanders. Clinton has more than a dozen endorsements from national unions, representing more than 10 million members. Even so, she may have a bit of trouble securing the Democratic nomination. Her commanding lead over Sanders has widened in recent weeks, but the passion gap indicates Clinton has more work to do in wooing union workers.
Los Angeles - Kylie Jenner reportedly demanded two dressing rooms during a recent TV appearance. The 18-year-old reality TV star wanted two separate rooms for herself and her glam squad when she was a guest on Ellen DeGeneres' chat show. A source told RadarOnline: "In addition to refusing to use Ellen's hair and makeup team, Kylie also needed to have two dressing rooms - one for her and one for her squad. "Kylie also insisted that she have two VIP parking spots, because she did not want to walk from the parking structure to the studio, which is less than a block away."
