The First U.S. Ebola Patient Has Died In Texas

Filed under: Sad SadHealthMedicineSickScary!

no title

This is so awful!

Thomas Eric Duncan was the first man with Ebola to travel into the United States. He was let into the country no problem and was originally released from a hospital even though he had a fever — and admitted he had recently traveled to the U.S. from Africa.

Eventually, he was readmitted to the hospital and diagnosed with Ebola.

Now, it's being reported that he's died this morning at Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital in Dallas.

Why Should Death Stop Productivity? Michael Crichton's New Novel Coming THIS FALL!

Filed under: Wacky, Tacky & TrueR.I.P.

new michael crichton novel coming soon

Okay, so maybe this is a little bit eerie…but is it really going to stop you from reading another book by the guy who wrote Jurassic Park?!?!?

WAY back in April '09, we learned that Crichton would be releasing two books from beyond the grave.

His adventure book Pirate Latitudes was released in Sept '10, and now his next book Micro will be released in November.

The book is "a thriller about a biotech company in Hawaii and graduate students who end up stranded and endangered in a rain forest."

Author Richard Preston, known for his best-seller nonfiction book about the Ebola virus entitled The Hot Zone was brought on to complete Crichton's final novel.

Here's what Preston had to say about it:

"Michael was writing at the top of his game, with a grand sense of adventure, into an eerie world that seems almost beyond imagining. For me, it was an irresistible challenge to finish the novel, and I was driven by a desire to honor the work and imagination of one of our time's most visionary and creative authors."

All we can say is we truly hope Richard Preston does justice to Michael's work with his contribution to this novel.

Will U read Michael Crichton's new book? Do U think Richard Preston will do a good job completing Crichton's final work?
