Here’s what I’m reading up on this morning:

  • Thomas Eric Duncan, the first person diagnosed with Ebola in the U.S., dies in a Dallas hospital. A sheriff’s deputy named Michael Monnig, who entered the apartment Duncan was staying in without protective gear, is hospitalized with Ebola-like symptoms. Ashoka Mukpo continues treatment
  • According to a new CDC report, life expectancy in the U.S. reaches an all time high.
