Second Texas healthcare worker with Ebola had traveled by plane

ebolaA second Texas healthcare worker who tested positive for Ebola after caring for a patient with the virus had traveled by plane a day before she reported symptoms, U.S. and airline officials said on Wednesday.

The worker at Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital in Dallas had taken a Frontier Airlines flight from Cleveland, Ohio, to Dallas-Fort Worth on Oct. 13, the officials said.

She was isolated immediately after reporting a fever on Tuesday, officials of the Texas Department of State Health Services said. The health worker had treated Liberian patient Thomas Eric Duncan, who died of Ebola and was the first patient diagnosed with the virus in the United States.

A Murder Mystery at Guantanamo Bay

GitmoThere’s more of a mystery to how three Guantanamo detainees died on June 10, 2006, than I realized when I described their deaths as suicides in a recent article about force-feeding methods at the notorious US prison. Some very experienced investigators who have examined the evidence suspect the three were victims of homicides amid the torture regime employed by President George W. Bush’s underlings.

Scott Horton, whose upcoming book Lords of Secrecy contains new insights into the Bush/Cheney/Rumsfeld/Tenet go-ahead on torture and other abuses, has supplied me with additional detail highly suggestive of foul play by CIA interrogators.

Toronto hospital implants Canada’s first “bionic eye”

bionic eyeWhen 76-year-old Ian Nichols’ grandchildren were born over the last 20 years, he loved holding them in his arms, but a vision impairment prevented him from seeing them as they grew.

That has changed. Nichols is one of two patients to have recently undergone once unimaginable “bionic eye” surgery at Toronto Western Hospital, the first time the procedure was performed in Canada.

The Beach resident has been blind for roughly 20 years since developing retinitis pigmentosa, a degenerative eye condition. During the three-hour surgery, his eye was cut open, a microchip was inserted and the incision closed with 20 tiny stitches.

Hong Kong Police Dismantle Protesters’ New Blockade

Hong Kong protestsScores of Hong Kong police officers moved in on pro-democracy protesters who blockaded a road near the city government’s headquarters early this morning, using pepper spray and taking away some demonstrators.

The clashes are the most serious since the police used tear gas two weeks ago as they tried to disperse crowds that are occupying key roads in the city. A group of more than 100 demonstrators had seized the Lung Wo Road underpass yesterday evening, initially forcing outnumbered police to retreat.

Is The Guardian Holding Back The New York Times’ Snowden Stories?

The Guardian UKA source at the Times tells The Daily Beast the paper feels ‘shackled’ over The Guardian’s total control over the cache of Edward Snowden NSA documents—and how they are used.

The Brits and the Yanks have long enjoyed a “special relationship,” and the bond between The Guardian and The New York Times is certainly special.

But when it comes to printing stories based on top-secret documents supplied by Edward Snowden, the relationship between the British and American media outlets occasionally seems frayed as well.

Supreme Court Stops Parts Of Texas Abortion Law

SCThe Supreme Court has blocked Texas from enforcing key parts of a 2013 law that would close all but eight of the state's abortion facilities.

The justices largely granted the request of abortion providers Tuesday. With three dissenting votes, the court suspended a ruling by the 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals that allowed Texas to enforce a rule making abortion clinics statewide spend millions of dollars on hospital-level upgrades.

Air Force's X-37B space plane returns after 2-year top-secret mission

X-37BThe X-37B is coming home, presumably chock-full of secrets. The unmanned Air Force plane -- a sort of space drone that has spent the last two years orbiting the planet -- is expected to return to Earth on Tuesday. At some point during daylight hours, depending on weather, the plane will land at Vandenberg Air Force Base in California.

"Team Vandenberg stands ready to implement safe landing operations for the X-37B Orbital Test Vehicle, the third time for this unique mission" the Air Force's Col. Keith Baits, 30th Space Wing commander, said in a press release issued last week.

Texas voter ID law reinstated by federal appeals court

Voter ID TexasA federal appeals court on Tuesday reinstated Texas’ tough voter ID law for the November election, which the U.S. Justice Department had condemned as the state’s latest means of suppressing minority voter turnout.

The ruling by the New Orleans-based 5th Circuit Court of Appeals temporarily blocks last week’s ruling by U.S. District Judge Nelva Gonzales Ramos in Corpus Christi, who determined the law unconstitutional and similar to a poll tax designed to dissuade minorities from voting.
