    Updated: 1 hr ago

    NEW YORK (AP) — An emergency room doctor who recently returned to the city after treating Ebola patients in West Africa has tested positive for the virus, becoming the first case in the city and the fourth in the nation. Mayor Bill de Blasio and Gov. Andrew Cuomo on Thursday urged residents not to be alarmed by the doctor's Ebola diagnosis, even as they described him riding the subway, taking a cab and bowling. De Blasio said all city officials followed "clear and strong" protocols in their handling and treatment of him. "We want to state at the outset that New Yorkers have no reason to be alarmed," de Blasio said. "New Yorkers who have not been exposed are not at all at risk.

  • NK expert says US must apologize to free detainees

    Updated: 2 hr ago

    PYONGYANG, North Korea (AP) — After an American was released from North Korean custody, the attention has now focused on two other U.S. citizens still in its jails, and at least one North Korean legal expert has some unusual advice to offer: let Washington formally apologize to Pyongyang, and the country's leader will consider pardoning them. The suggestion on Thursday by Sok Chol Won, a professor of international law, offers a look at North Korean thinking — academics, government officials and ordinary people alike. While the idea of an apology may appear ludicrous to outsiders in democracies, autocratic North Korea assumes that a government is responsible for its citizens' actions.

  • Ebola: A crash course in fear and how it hurts us

    Updated: 5 hr ago

    WASHINGTON (AP) — Ebola is giving Americans a crash course in fear. Yet, they're incredibly less likely to get the disease than to get sick worrying about it. First, the reality check: More Americans have married Kim Kardashian — three — than contracted Ebola in the U.S. The two Dallas nurses who came down with Ebola were infected while treating a Liberian man, who became infected in West Africa. The New York doctor who has tested positive for Ebola had been treating people in West Africa.

  • Canada gunman wanted a passport to go to Mideast

    Updated: 5 hr ago

    OTTAWA, Ontario (AP) — He seemed lost, "did not fit in," had drug problems, and went more than five years without seeing his mother. In recent weeks, he had been living at a homeless shelter and had talked about wanting to go to Libya — or Syria — but became agitated when he couldn't get a passport. A day after Michael Zehaf-Bibeau launched a deadly attack on Canada's seat of government, a portrait of the 32-year-old Canadian began to emerge, along with a possible explanation for what triggered the shooting rampage. Bob Paulson, commissioner of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police, said that Zehaf-Bibeau — a Muslim whose father was from Libya — may have lashed out in frustration over delays in obtaining a passport.

  • NTSB: Perry Inhofe 'did not appropiately manage' engine shutdown before fatal crash

    BY KENDRICK MARSHALL, Tulsa World | Published: Thu, Oct 23, 2014

    A final report on the plane crash that killed Perry Dyson Inhofe II says he “did not appropriately manage” the aircraft having to fly on just one engine before it went down near Owasso last fall. The probable cause report released Thursday by the National Transportation Safety Board said Inhofe, the plane’s sole occupant, reported a “control problem” and “left engine shutdown” moments before the Mitsubishi MU-2 twin-engine plane crashed on Nov. 10. Investigators said the plane should have been flyable in a one-engine-inoperative condition, as weather did not impact its performance. Read the rest of this story at TulsaWorld.com .
