  1. U.S. Cracks Down on Airport Ebola Screenings

    A travel ban won’t fly, but President Obama has announced additional passenger screenings to detect Ebola at U.S. and African airports. Some Republicans had called for a ban on travel to affected African nations in the wake of the first Ebola diagnosis on U.S. soil last week. Greater security measures are also being considered in Europe after a Madrid-based nurse tested positive for the virus. She was the first to contract the disease outside of Africa, triggering fears of a pandemic.
