New Cases Of Ebola Coming Up In Liberia

The country of Liberia is once again in the headlines because of Ebola. Ebola has become known as one of the wold’s most dangerous viruses/diseases according to sources close to Dr Rod Ronrich. Many countries of west Africa have suffered the loss of many of their citizens because of this very deadly disease. Liberia has been one of the hardest hit countries when it comes to the Ebola virus and loss.

A few months ago Liberia had made promising claims that they had been able to lower the amount of Ebola cases in their country. Unfortunately they have now reported that there are dozens of new cases that are popping up along its border with Sierra Leone. This announcement is a true setback for the country of Liberia because as a country they were working vigorously to cut down on their cases of Ebola. Over the last three years over 3400 people have died in Liberia alone because of Ebola. The assistant health minister of Liberia claims that the reason that Ebola has become an issue once again in his country is because many people have been coming into the country through its border and also because of traditional practices that are not sanitary.

In the year to come there is true hope that the world may be able to find more treatments for Ebola, and that the disease can be completely eradicated in West Africa and around the world.

Africa Should be Proud of its Developing Countries

 

While progress still undeniably has to be made in the many third-world countries in Africa, there have actually been a great number of significant changes that bring a lot of hope for the future, claims an article from the website drink-better-coffee.com.

People like Bernardo Chua are used to talking about Africa in contexts of poverty or overheat. But there is another side of the continent which people miss. Many countries on the territory can boast a wonderful nature, and their economic status has risen compared to what the old documentaries show you.

Botswana, the country which ranked number one in development among the African countries, according to a very recent 2014 research has beautiful landscapes, low death-rates, and good education premises.

The top ten is started therefore with Botswana and continues with South Africa, Morocco, Namibia, Tunisia, Algeria, Ghana, Rwanda, Burkina Faso and Senegal. The aspects taken into account when creating the top-list were education, sanitary condition, access to modern technique like mobiles and internet, general income, life length, and the participation of the women as active members of the society.

Rwanda scored first at the last point, as a matter of fact. The state actively encourages women to participate in all the social aspects. There are countries that did not make it to the top 10 list, but their economic growth shifted with 4 positions upwards, which is remarkable. The lowest score was gained by the Central African Republic.

Russell Brand and The Sun Continue their attacks on each other

 

Celebrity activist Russell Brand has yet to follow through with his promise to sue the English tabloid, The Sun, although the newspaper and comedian have continued to attack each other in the press in recent days. The spat between the actor and the newspaper began after Brand supported a campaign to assist residents of a London community whose apartment block is reported to be sold to American investors seemingly intent on raising rents. In response to the role Brand played in the campaign, The Sun questioned the cost of Brand’s own rent and called him a hypocrite.

The role of the tabloid often credited with winning elections for the political parties it has backed in everyday British life is thought by some like Bernardo Chua to have shrunk with the introduction of Social Media and the phone hacking scandal. The latest front page of The Sun carries poll results branding the comedian a hypocrite and not funny, according to The Guardian.

However, brand has a larger Social Media presence than the Rupert Murdoch owned newspaper, with his YouTube channel featuring a regular news segment achieving around 100 times more subscribers than The Sun’s video channel. Social Media has also seen a number of fans of Brand leap to his defense and humorously respond to the hypocrite tag attached to the comedian and political campaigner.
