600 Ebola cases reported in a week - Independent.ie

The UN health agency said today that 15,935 people have fallen ill with Ebola as the disease sweeps West Africa and has occasionally popped up elsewhere. Of those, 5,689 have died.

It said infections appeared to be stabilising in Guinea and stabilising or declining in Liberia, but increasing in Sierra Leone. Officials in Sierra Leone, however, say the outbreak may be on the verge of slowing there.

The WHO said it appears to have already passed the goal in Guinea of isolating 70% of patients by December 1, but is far behind that target in the other two hard-hit countries.

US Special Forces funds drug that can put injured soldiers in ...

The US Special Operations Command (SOCOM) is providing $550,000 to fund a radical new drug being developed by Australian scientists.

It can put people into a 'survival window' low enough to reduce blood loss, but high enough to prevent brain injury.

arsenalgearnews - Hackers Now Able to Break into Automobile CPU's

gainst the team of hackers, the poor car stood no chance.

Meticulously overwhelming its computer networks, the hackers showed that ? given time ? they would be able to pop the trunk and start the windshield wipers, cut the brakes or lock them up, and even kill the engine.

Their motives were not malicious. These hackers worked on behalf of the U.S. military, which along with the auto industry is scrambling to fortify the cyber defenses of commercially available cars before criminals and even terrorists penetrate them.

"You're stepping into a rolling computer now," said Chris Valasek, who helped catapult car hacking into the public eye when he and a partner revealed last year they had been able to control a 2010 Toyota Prius and 2010 Ford Escape by plugging into a port used by mechanics.

These days, when Valasek isn't working his day job for a computer security firm, he's seeing how Bluetooth might offer an entry point.

Automakers are betting heavily that consumers will want not just the maps and music playlists of today but also Internet-enabled vehicles that stream movies and the turn dictation into email. The federal government wants to require cars to send each other electronic messages warning of dangers on the road.

In these and other connections, hackers see opportunity.

Police reveal Cleveland boy shot by cop did not point BB gun at ...

The pair of officers approached Rice, who was told to raise his hands. He was shot twice by one of the officers when he reached for the pellet gun in his waistband. He did not, according to official accounts, point the "airsoft" gun at police or verbally threaten the officers.

"Airsoft" pellet guns are designed to resemble actual firearms, but they shoot round plastic pellets. The fake guns are usually distinguished from real weapons by a strip or spot of orange paint, but police said Rice's toy did not have a safety indicator. An Ohio state lawmaker has already proposed legislation that would require all such airsoft guns to come with bright or obvious fluorescent stripes.
