#BREAKING All VISAS for #Ebola Countries SUSPENDED by #CANADA! My Opinion>>Good Move!

Canada is following in Australia's footsteps and has closed its doors, effectively immediately, to people from the West African countries battling Ebola.

In a move that puts Canada at odds with the World Health Organization, the federal government said Friday it is suspending the issuance of visas for residents and nationals of countries with "widespread and persistent-intense transmission" of Ebola virus disease. As well, work on permanent residence applications for people from the affected countries is also being suspended.

The stress on countries with widespread transmission provides an out for the United States, which currently still has at least one active Ebola case within its borders. At present only three countries meet the definition of widespread and persistent Ebola transmission: Guinea, Sierra Leone and Liberia.

Canada is doing the RIGHT THING! I lived in Toronto 5 years on refugee status. Kicked out cos I was not eligible anymore meanwhile the criminals and terrorists are kept in. The refugee system too lenient for the ppl who don't contribute to society there. I fought gun violence at ABOUT OUR SONS

My personal Immigration Rants aside, banning visas means you won't have to go thru that quarantine BS the Americans are messing with. Everyone's learning from the American nurse Kaci Hicox and her lawsuit and temporary victory. Good move for once Harper! You already got terrorists in there. Deal with that problem first. Thank God Nigeria is Ebola FREE! For the people who live in Canada and from Liberia, Sierra Leone and Guinea, do NOT come home this Christmas. They will NOT let you back in. Nigerians, ebola free or not, don't allow yourselves to be stigmatized when you return. The schoolgirl in Connecticut dealt with that and missed 3 weeks of school.

STAY in Canada for now. For real, many North Americans still don't think EBOLA is real. You can shake a victim and get it just from their sweaty palms. We dont even shake in Nigeria anymore. Google the #EbolaHandshake. Only good move the US has made so far is to quarantine their troops on coming back. Our troops are doing the same when they get back here in March 2015.

BUT....unlike Australia, we need Canada to give West Africa money to help. There is so much being done here and money needed in every facet to get education and livelihoods thriving.

#HNNSports #Boston Marathon Champion Rita Jeptoo Tests Positive For Banned Substance

RunBlogRun reported 33-year-old Rita Jeptoo failed a doping test administered in Kenya in September.

Kenyans have what it takes for these marathons but has Rita put a dent in the whole East African appeal? I say yes! Now every other marathon winner is SUSPECT!

In a statement on WMM’s website, WMM General Counselman Nick Bitel offered a scathing quote on impurity in the sport:

WMM has always held a stern line on drugs cheats and has been proactively supporting the sports governing bodies to ensure the integrity of the athletes competing in their races. Cheats need to understand that they are not welcome in our sport and that they will be caught.

Frederica Rosa, Jeptoo’s agent, confirmed the test results to the Associated Press. The International Association of Athletics Federations has not yet announced a course of disciplinary action. Am I waiting for that? She's already disgraced Africa!!

#UPDATE: 2 of the three 13y/o #SantaAna girls Trick or Treating KILLED by speeding driver WERE TWINS! #HNNCrime

These are the unknown dangers of Halloween and the safety we must take yet still tragedies that cannot be avoided. I am blogging this from Nigeria and LA Times and your ABC7 has the best coverage. I just woke up 8am and its midnite over there. how could this happen? My prayers and thoughts go to their families and friends in school. My youngest is American and also 13. Very devastating!!--KOO
Manhunt underway for two men accused of hitting and killing three 13-year-old girls who were trick-or-treating: The three were struck about 6:45 p.m. by a driver "going at a high rate of speed" westbound while they were in a crosswalk in the area of Old Grand Street and Fairhaven Avenue, directly in front of Fairhaven Elementary School, said Anthony Bertagna, a spokesman for the Santa Ana police.

All three girls were declared dead at the scene, said Orange County Fire Capt. Steve Concialdi. The third girl was a friend of the twin sisters, Bertagna said.

All families have been notified and are at the scene, he said.

A crowd of about 200 people, many still wearing costumes, gathered near the scene consoling one another as they watched the police activity.

Witnesses said the victims lived in the area.

Authorities believe they have located the suspect vehicle, a Honda SUV, which was found behind a Big Lots store near the crime scene, police said. "It has damage to the front of it and evidence inside it," Bertagna said. Witnesses followed the car after the collision, but lost the suspects once they fled on foot, police said.

Police are looking for two men who they said were in the car at the time of the incident.

A large crime scene has been set up in the area. Sharon Stewart, a barber at the nearby #1 Barber Shop, said she was eating outside when she heard what sounded "like a terrible crash. A couple of thumps. Then I heard screaming. I turned and I saw a car leaving and people yelling. So I thought, 'It’s a hit-and-run.' "

She said the vehicle passed her on Fairhaven, so she got in her car and followed. Stewart saw a young man run from the scene and heard him yelling at what she thought was his companion.

“I only saw one guy but I know there was somebody else,” she said.

Added Stewart: “There were a lot of people back there, quite a few witnesses. There was quite a few kids that did see it. I’m sorry they had to see it.” About 10:20 p.m., a young man approached the police tape. He said he had heard there had been an accident. He could be heard asking, “Are they OK?”

Police took him aside. Bystanders identified him as the twins’ brother.

#HNNHealth #China mass producing HAZMAT suits preparing for #Ebola? GOOD MOVE!

Factories are mass producing protective Hazmat suits

Africa's biggest trading partner China is using its military might to help protect itself from an expected first case of Ebola in the country.

The close business ties with the continent, whose western nations are battling the worst outbreak of the virus in history, is worth over £131 billion and sees more than one million Chinese migrant workers stationed in Africa.

It has led to growing fears that Ebola could travel to the Asian nation.

Factories are mass producing protective Hazmat suits amid expectation that the first case will arrive sooner rather than later.

#HNNTravel Footage emerges of @VirginGalactic SpaceShipTwo crash site

One pilot was killed and another seriously injured when Virgin Galactic's prototype commercial spaceship crashed in the desert on Friday.

The accident left debris from the test plane scattered across the desert near Mojave.

Virgin Galactic said its SpaceShipTwo craft had "experienced an in-flight anomaly".

The company later added: "Virgin Galactic's partner Scaled Composites conducted a powered test flight of SpaceShipTwo earlier today. During the test, the vehicle suffered a serious anomaly resulting in the loss of SpaceShipTwo. WK2 landed safely."

No date has yet been set for the first commercial flight but hundreds of would-be space tourists have made down payments for the chance to fly.

Watch the video here and below are the tweets as it unfolded.

#HNNImpact @VirginGalactic wearing #Halloween costume KID Tweeted by @RichardBranson THEN CRASH!!

Richard Branson has not tweeted yet since one of the Galactic fleet's crash killing the pilot and severely injuring another. The California Highway Patrol told me that other pilot is in bad shape. 

Please keep him and their families in your prayers. I am a NUT for space travel and that is one of my dreams.Last I heard from Branson was a tweet doing Halloween promos somewhere in the West and sadly this kid's costume is an irony.

I just hate when SCARY stuff happens on Halloween!
