Zuckerberg Donates $25 Million To Ebola Funds

Mark Zuckerberg, the Facebook founder; and his wife Priscilla Chan have announced on Tuesday that they will donate $25 million to the Centers for Disease Control Foundation.

The outbreak of Ebola in West Africa has infected at least 8,000 people and killed more than 4,000, which makes it the worst in history. The world Health Organization has estimated that they will need at least $1 Billion to stop it.

Zuckerberg’s donation will provide funds that are well needed, but how will they be used?

The CDC director Tom Frieden, said, “This significant contribution from Mark Zuckerberg and Dr. Priscilla Chan will help us rapidly advance the fight against Ebola.”

He then added that the generous donation “will provide flexible funding allowing [the] CDC to address the most pressing needs as the epidemic shifts and evolves.”

The donation is going to the CDC Foundation’s Global Disaster Response Fund, this will help address needs that are identified by the CDC. 

“It’s easy to say Ebola is still small compared to other diseases of that it’s mostly in other countries and won’t affect us,” wrote Zuckerberg.

“But if we don’t get this under control soon, then it will spread and become an epidemic we have to deal with for decades to come," he added.

What do you think about his generous donation?

U.S Airports Add Screenings For Ebola

The Obama administration is considering to provide screenings for travelers who are coming from Ebola-infected countries.

Many Americans are now concerned that the virus could possibly spread, especially with the fact that a patient has been diagnosed in Dallas, Texas.

According to NBC news, they will be adding CDC staffers at four major airports: JFK in New York, Newark in New Jersey, Chicago and Washington Dulles. 

They will ask the travelers questions like where they have been and also take their temperatures. According to studies, a fever is one of the first symptoms of Ebola infection. Although, it is also a symptom of malaria, influenza and various other infections.

The administration also added that it does not support blocking flights from West Africa. Mainly because the countries affected screen travelers on their way out.

Dr. Thomas Frieden, the director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, stated that 77 people were not allowed to board flights from these countries thanks to the screenings. 

According to The World Health Organization, blocking flights would only make the problem worse by making countries poorer and it would discourage aid workers for helping. 

“We’re also going to be working on protocols to do additional, faster screening both at the source and here in the United States,” said President Barack Obama on Monday.

Wu-Tang Clan Will Release New Album On Black Friday

At the beginning of the year Wu-Tang Clan made headlines all over the United States when they announced that only one copy of their album Once Upon A Time In Shaolin would be released, the Clan has now announced a new strategy for the release of their new album, A Better Tomorrow.

Yesterday, RZA revealed that the album would be released around Black Friday or November 28, and that a limited edition Boombotix portable speaker would be released with five album tracks and three bonus tracks. He also added that only 3,000 would be made.

“I had the idea pop up into my head, for a while, about music being kind of disconnected to us. Of being so digitized and accessible, but yet not tangible,” said RZA as he described his motivation for the idea of the speaker.

“But this thing here, a tangible item, like your old Walkman or your old cassette, or your old record, that’s what this is bringing back,” he added.

What is your opinion on the idea of the speaker? Do you think it will be successful or a fail?
