Terry Leach | October 24, 2014 | Politics
We must require that all travelers from countries experiencing an Ebola epidemic, including U.S. citizens returning to the States, isolate in place at home for 21 days and immediately report any Ebola-like symptoms. And if an individual who is not a U.S. citizen doesn't have a site in which to isolate once here, serious consideration should be given to denying that person entry to the U.S.

Fiona Patterson | October 24, 2014 | Healthy Living
Guilt was a factor that stopped me changing my career. New people I met would often say, "You're so lucky, I always wanted to be a vet!" Those to whom I vocalized my discontent would remark "Really? But you studied for so long!"

Ebola Is Not A Political Issue

Rabbi Yaacov Behrman | October 24, 2014 | Politics
I view Ebola as an enemy. This is war. Now is not the time to politicize Ebola and attack our leadership. We can discuss how this health crisis could have been better managed after we win the war, but until then, it is essential that we stay focused on the enemy.
