WASHINGTON (AP) — Ordering firm restrictions for U.S. troops returning from West Africa, Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel said Wednesday that the military men and women helping fight Ebola must undergo 21-day quarantines — longer than required for many civilian health care workers.
In Maine, meanwhile, a civilian nurse was vigorously resisting the quarantine she was told to undergo. Kaci Hickox, who had treated Ebola patients in West Africa, said she planned to stop quarantining herself in her home, signaling a potential showdown on Thursday with state police monitoring her movements and Maine officials preparing to legally enforce the order.
President Barack Obama, meeting with health care workers at the White House, acknowledged that the United States was not invulnerable to the disease but cautioned against discouraging civilian volunteers with overly restrictive measures upon their return home. “We can’t hermetically seal ourselves off,” he declared.
There seemed to be good news…

LL Cool J sent the following on Twitter.
I’m so ready for this role in Marvel movie.

The question is, what? And if? Vin Diesel didn’t have the role of Groot when he hit Twitter and said he was working with Marvel.
So, who is LL going to be?
Luke Cage? (That’s not a movie though – that’s the Marvel television show with Netflix.)
What about…uh…Black Panther’s dad? (NO WAY.)
These guys are the likely candidates:
Nobody is confirmed at all.
So, what the hell is LL gonna do in Marvel Universe? I don’t really see it.

Richard Arrington, Jr. made history on this day in 1979 after winning a run-off election to become Birmingham, Ala.’s first African-American mayor. For twenty years, Arrington led the city to a new level of prominence and provided grand opportunities for people of color during his tenure.
Born October 19, 1934 in the town of Livingston, Arrington was the child of sharecropper parents. He entered Alabama’s Miles College, earning his undergraduate degree in biology. While at Miles, Arrington became a member of the Alpha Phi Alpha fraternity and excelled in the classroom.

With a name like Rich Dollaz, owing money shouldn’t be an issue, right? Wrong, and he’s sitting in jail right now because of it.
TMZ reports that the Love and Hip Hop star double parked outside of a police headquarters in Edgewater, NJ, which earned him a ticket. When the officer ran his plates, it was discovered there was a warrant out for his arrest. Turns out that the 43-year-old owes $11,000 in child support and was thrown into Hudson County jail. He’s still in custody.
Oh geez, here we go again.

A few months ago, I was running around touting my sewing abilities, and I found myself commissioned to make Halloween costumes for basically everyone I know. Now, with six days to go – and midterm season in full swing – it’s going a little something like this:
…and commandeering the kitchen table for what they refer to in tasteless jest as my “sweatshop.” (They get a kick out of that—meanwhile, it hasn’t occurred to them to pay me for my labour.)
I have to admit, when they first made that comment, it was easy to sit there moping and pretend to empathize with low-wage textile workers. I obviously reeled myself in a bit from there, but it did get me thinking about why I sew.
When I first decided I wanted to make my own clothes, it…
