  • Nigeria Declared Ebola-Free After Containing Virus
    Nigeria was declared free of the deadly Ebola virus on Monday after a determined doctor and thousands of officials and volunteers helped end an outbreak still ravaging other parts of West Africa and threatening the United States and Spain. Caught unawares when a diplomat arrived with the disease from Liberia, authorities were alerted by Doctor Ameyo Adadevoh, who kept him in her hospital despite protests from him and his government, and later herself died from the disease. They then set about trying to contain it in an overcrowded city of 21 million where it could easily have turned a doomsday scenario if about 300 people who had been in direct or indirect contact with him not been traced and isolated. "This is a spectacular success story," Rui Gama Vaz from the World Health Organization (WHO) told a news conference in the capital A...
  • This day in History: Congress investigates Reds in Hollywood, Oct 20, 1947
    On October 20, 1947, the notorious Red Scare kicks into high gear in Washington, as a Congressional committee begins investigating Communist influence in Hollywood. After World War II, the Cold War began to heat up between the United States and the communist-controlled Soviet Union. In Washington, conservative watchdogs set their sights on alleged "Reds" in the famously liberal movie industry. In 1947, the House (HUAC) grilled a number of witnesses, asking bluntly "Are you or have you ever been a member of the Communist Party?" Some witnesses, including director Elia Kazan, actors Gary Cooper and Robert Taylor, Walt Disney and Jack Warner—gave the committee names of colleagues they suspected of being communists. A small group known as the "Hollywood Ten" resisted, complaining that the hearings violated their First Amendment rights. They were all convicted of obstructing the investigation and served jail terms. Pressured by Congress, the Hollywood establishment started a blacklist policy, banning the work of about 325 screenwriters, actors and directors who had not been cleared by the committee. Those blacklisted included actor filmmaker Orson Welles. In the early 1960s, after the downfall of Senator Joseph McCarthy, the ban began to lift slowly. In 1997, the Writers' Guild of America unanimously voted to change the writing credits of 23 films made during the blacklist period, reversing—but not erasing—some of the damage done during the Red Scare.
