The prime suspect in the case of missing UVA student Hannah Graham has been accused of bothering women moments before he began following the UVA student.

Volunteers and doctors are finally stepping forward to help fight the Ebola virus in West Africa after a long paralyzing fear. Because it takes time to train the volunteers and get them to Africa, there remains a gap between medical professionals and people needed to do the work. About 600 cases of Ebola are being recorded every week, according to the World Health Organization, and the number has doubled every 3 weeks. At least 3,000 lives have been lost due to the epidemic virus and more than 6,500 cases have been confirmed. Dr. Joanne Lui from Doctors Without Borders has said, “If we had 1,700 staffed beds right now, we could maybe turn the tide. When we hear the pledges, we ask for timelines. Some say eight to 10 weeks. They’re going to wake up to a much bigger problem at Christmas.” [NY Times, Time Magazine]
