Cheat Sheet - Terrorist Ends Canada’s Innocence

Read This, Skip That ....

October 22, 2014
Wednesday's attack on Canada's capital brought a new kind of murderous terrorism to the country. At least one gunman killed a Canadian soldier at the national war memorial before opening fire inside parliament. Police are looking for more assailants.

The CDC announced on Wednesday that all travelers from the three West African countries hit hard by Ebola will be monitored for 21 days after their arrival in the U.S. The new policy goes into effect Monday, and will include aid workers, journalists, and any other Americans returning from Liberia, Sierra Leone, or Guinea. It will begin in six states: New York, Pennsylvania, Maryland, Virginia, New Jersey, and Georgia. State and local health officials will be the ones checking daily for fever or other symptoms.


Back off! In an interview with People magazine, Renee Zellweger responded to widespread shock over photos that surfaced showing her looking drastically different. "I'm glad folks think I look different! I'm living a different, happy, more fulfilling life, and I'm thrilled that perhaps it shows," Zellweger, 45, said.  She also said the conversation is "silly" but that she felt compelled to discuss it because "it seems the folks who come digging around for some nefarious truth which doesn't exist won't get off my porch until I answer the door." More importantly for Zellweger, "My friends say that I look peaceful. I am healthy."

America's most advanced ship has a slight problem: it might sink. The 600-foot long ship has 80 missile tubs, two massive 155-millimeter guns, and can hurl shells up to 80 miles, reports Dave Majumdar. It's the nation's most impressive ship to date, but that won't do the U.S. any good if it can't sail.
Did Led Zeppelin plagiarize one of the most iconic rock songs? The group is facing a lawsuit, claiming "Stairway to Heaven" rips off "Taurus," a song written by Randy California for the band Spirit. Led Zepellin lost its first attempt to dismiss the suit, writes Keith Phipps, now the shoe is on the other foot for the notoriously litigious band.
