American doctor in Liberia tests positive for Ebola virus

Sunday, 27 July 2014 07:49 Written by

An American doctor working in the African country of Liberia has tested positive for the deadly Ebola virus, an aid organization said Saturday. 
Samaritan's Purse, based in North Carolina, said in a statement that Dr. Kent Brantly was being treated at an isolation center in a hospital in Monrovia, Liberia's capital. Brantly is the medical director for the aid organization's case management center in the city.
Brantly, 33, has been working with Samaritan's Purse in Liberia since October 2013 as part of the charity's post-residency program for doctors, group spokeswoman Melissa Strickland told The Associated Press. The organization's website says he had worked as a family practice physician in Fort Worth, Texas.

DC ban on carrying handguns is unconstitutional, federal judge says

Sunday, 27 July 2014 07:42 Written by

In a landmark gun control case, a federal judge in Washington DC has overturned the city’s total ban on carrying handguns outside the home, saying it is unconstitutional.
"There is no longer any basis on which this Court can conclude that the District of Columbia's total ban on the public carrying of ready-to-use handguns outside the home is constitutional under any level of scrutiny," Judge Frederick Scullin said.

"Therefore, the Court finds that the District of Columbia's complete ban on the carrying of handguns in public is unconstitutional," Scullin added in his 19-page ruling.

Magnetic Field of Earth Weakening a Sign Poles Are Flipping

Sunday, 27 July 2014 07:01 Written by

The magnetic field of Earth is weakening more rapidly than many scientists thought it would, a sign that Earth’s magnetic poles might flip within a few hundred years as opposed to thousands of years. Data collected from Swarm, the collective name for three European Space Agency (ESA) satellites, confirms that Earth’s magnetic field is weakening, something which has led to many past switches in Earth’s magnetic poles.

According to LiveScience, the magnetic field of Earth is produced by an iron core at the center of the planet and it extends above Earth’s surface 370,000 miles. One of the reasons that Earth’s magnetic field is important is that it is like a defensive force field, blocking out much of the radiation bombarding Earth daily from space and the sun.

Northern California wildfire forces evacuation of hundreds of homes

Sunday, 27 July 2014 06:43 Written by

Fox News and The Associated Press contributed to this report.

Fire officials in northern California said late Saturday that a rapidly spreading blaze has torched over 3,000 acres and forced the evacuation of over 500 homes.

Evacuation orders were expanded to include approximately 265 homes in Amador County. Previous orders had covered about 250 homes about 40 miles east of Sacramento.

Since it broke out at around 5 p.m. Friday, the so-called Sand Fire has destroyed five homes and seven outbuildings. Many vineyards are in the area but the flames were moving away from them, said Lynn Tolmachoff, a spokeswoman for the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection.

"The drought is very severe here. All the plants are catching fire and spreading very easily," Tolmachoff said.
