One American Ebola patient has been reunited with his family and given a clean bill of health after going through three weeks of treatment in Georgia.
There were cheers of joy from the staff at Emory University Hospital as Dr. Kent Brantly left the facility completely free of Ebola.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention declared last week that he’s been cured of the deadly virus, the Associated Press reports. He was discharged from Emory University Hospital last Thursday, and he’s spending time with his loved ones in an unspecified location.
Upon his release, Richard issued a statement and expressed his overwhelming joy at surviving the virus. “Today is a miraculous I am thrilled to be alive, to be well, and to be reunited with my family. As a medical missionary I never imagined myself in this position,” he said.

here’s how ColumbusDispatch are reporting it:
For Ted Williams, the homeless man with the golden voice, every outing turns into a public-relations event. On a recent visit to a soup kitchen, several people who are in recovery from alcohol and drug abuse shared their stories with Williams.
“The people just scream for him,” said his longtime friend Kathy Craig, who witnessed his visit to the Community Threads’ weekly lunch on E. Main St. “The people just gravitate toward him.”
Williams was featured in a January 2011 Dispatch video after he was spotted panhandling at an I-71 exit ramp with a homemade sign saying he had a radio voice. After millions of views, the video propelled him to appearances on theToday Show and Dr. Phil. The notoriety led to numerous voice-over jobs, including one as the spokesman for Kraft Macaroni and Cheese. A successful stint in rehabilitation helped him deal with…

Pebbles is super serious with her lawsuit over her portrayal in the TLC movie from earlier this year. She’s so serious that she named T-Boz and Chilli apart of the $40 million lawsuit.
When the lawsuit first came about, Pebbles claimed that:
As a conniving and dishonest business woman who hoodwinked three innocent girls and exploited their talent for her own personal gain.
Viacom stated in their own documents that they way Pebbles was portrayed in the movie was, indeed, accurate, and there was no harm made in her portrayal in the film, according to the Jasmine Brand. The company urged that the lawsuit be dismissed.
Pebbles (real name Perri Reid) didn’t think that was necessary and decided to have T-Boz and Chilli served with subpoenas on September 30. The papers “demand” that they hand over any discussions about Pebbles.
She also is demanding from them – any…

The City of Philadelphia’s name roughly translates to “brotherly love” from Greek, giving way to its long-standing motto. Thanks to the efforts of pioneering broadcaster and host of Oldschool 100.3’s Dyana Williams, Philly is now known as “The City of Brotherly Love and Sisterly Affection.”
The roots of the expanded motto are hard to trace, with some historians saying that the added phrasing began in the late 1800s. However, it never caught fire among the general public, for whatever reason. Many individuals, however, have worked the added motto into their speech and have tried ardently to make it official.
Williams spearheaded the most recent effort to have the motto expanded, this after using it for the past three decades on air. Williams reached out to Philadelphia mayor Michael Nutter in her campaign for the motto change, who also uses the expanded version at city functions. Williams’ hard work certainly…

BALTIMORE (WJZ) — The Ebola patient that died traveled through Dulles Airport on his way to Texas. Now US officials are enhancing Ebola screenings at certain airports.
Meghan McCorkell has more on what’s being done.
The CDC is targeting airports where the bulk of flights from West Africa land—including Dulles.
Quarantine stations are being set up at five of the largest airports in the country—including Dulles International, where Thomas Eric Duncan went through customs back in August before falling ill with Ebola.
Federal officials will now pinpoint passengers who have recently flown from West Africa at Dulles, JFK, Newark, Chicago O’Hare and Atlanta airports for enhanced Ebola screenings.
“We are all concerned about safety. We’re all concerned about making sure the American public is as safe as possible,” said Transportation Secretary Anthony Foxx.
Those passengers will have their temperatures taken and be questioned about whether they were exposed to anyone…
