Americans watch out: isis releases more execution videos of new british hostage. OCT: 3
An Internet video released Friday purportedly shows an Islamic State fighter beheading captured British aid worker Alan Henning and threatening another American captive in the fourth such killing carried out by the militant group.
The video mirrored other beheading videos shot by the Islamic State group, which now holds territory along the border of Syria and Iraq. It ended with an Islamic State fighter threatening a man they identified as an American named Peter Kassig.
"Obama, you have started your aerial bombardment of Shams (Syria), which keeps on striking our people, so it is only right that we continue to strike the neck of your people," the masked militant in the video says.
U.S. officials told Fox News that they are analyzing the tape but had no reason to doubt its authenticity.
"The United States strongly condemns the brutal murder of United Kingdom citizen Alan Henning by the terrorist group ISIL," the White House said in a statement.
"Mr. Henning worked to help improve the lives of the Syrian people and his death is a great loss for them, for his family and the people of the United Kingdom," the White House said. "Standing together with our UK friends and allies, we will work to bring the perpetrators of Alan's murder - as well as the murders of Jim Foley, Steven Sotloff and David Haines - to justice."
"Health officials said on Friday that they had identified 10 people who are most at risk of contracting Ebola after coming into contact with an infected African man now in isolation in a Dallas hospital.Among them, health officials said, are the four people who shared an apartment with the patient, Thomas E. Duncan, and medical workers who treated him. Another 40 people are being monitored daily but are considered at relatively low risk, officials said. No one has developed any symptoms of the disease."

So now that Ebola is in America in a few places, that doesn't mean we should panic. We don't support fear mongering and making anyone scared. However, we should be aware of the situation and educated on it. Today, another case was reported in Washington, D.C. Luckily of all these cases, the patients are in hospitals in isolation. We are at an advantage here in the United States for having superior health systems in place to control such diseases.
Thomas Duncan is in the hospital now. His apartment has been cleaned out by Haz-mat teams where four people are being held in quarantine.

you are truly blessed!
It seems to me that a lot of people I meet do not really appreciate the things they have in their lives. Far too many of them take their freedoms for granted and others just simply do not even realize how good their lives really are! There are a number of countries where I would not be able to do the things I have accomplished in my career because of my disability. The United States of America gives everyone a chance, no matter their circumstance. There are those out there who were born in poverty and decided they wanted to become successful. They pulled themselves to a new level because they had the motivation and the desire to do something to help themselves. We are blessed by God to live in a special country that is one of a kind. Despite questionable government policies and a struggling economy, Americans still have the unique ability to do amazing things. I want to spread the message that the American dream is much more than just a dream, because it does come true! I can attest to that in full. So when you sit down tonight and eat dinner with your family, just remember that others are not as fortunate. Be appreciative everyday, that you can go out and do what you want, create what you want, see what you want, and live the life you choose to live.
