Costa Rica on alert for Ebola; Top U.S. general fears “mass migration” from CentAm in case of outbreak

Why is a U.S. General spreading this fearful warning instead of a health official?

The Real EbolaBusters!
U.S. citizens who refuse to undergo the new screenings for Ebola at five major American airports could find themselves held in quarantine for up to three weeks, officials told Yahoo News on Thursday.

California Dreaming Of Water
Since 2012, California has been suffering through a historically severe drought. For the farmers of the Central Valley, which is, as Dana Goodyear writes in this week’s issue, “the country’s fruit basket, salad bowl, and dairy case,” the future seems especially bleak. Wells have gone dry, orchards have been left to perish, and those who came to California to work the fields stand idle.

Hillary Heckler
A man with a bullhorn interrupted Hillary Clinton on Sunday during a speech she was giving in San Diego.
The heckler, sporting a suit and tie, sounded a loud alarm with the bullhorn and began shouting at the former Secretary of State before he was quickly removed by security. It's not immediately clear why the man interrupted Clinton's remarks.

U.S. Oil Will Be Fracking Mad At Saudi Arabia
Despite a nearly 25% slide in oil prices in recent months, Saudi Arabia has no intention of cutting oil production. On the contrary, according to a Reuters report Sunday, the kingdom “is quietly telling oil market participants that Riyadh is comfortable with markedly lower oil prices for an extended period.” How much lower? Perhaps down to $80 per barrel, for a year or two.
