(Official White House Photo by Lawrence Jackson) </p> </div> </div> <p>In this week&rsquo;s address, the President discussed the measures we are taking to respond to Ebola cases at home, while containing the epidemic at its source in West Africa. This week, we continued to focus on domestic preparedness, with the creation of new CDC guidelines and the announcement of new travel measures ensuring all travelers from the three affected countries are directed to and screened at one of five airports.</p> <p>The President emphasized that it&rsquo;s important to follow the facts, rather than fear, as New Yorkers did yesterday when they stuck to their daily routine. Ebola is not an easily transmitted disease, and America is leading the world in the fight to stamp it out in West Africa.</p> <p></p> <p><a href="http://www.whitehouse.gov/the-press-office/2014/10/25/weekly-address-focused-fight-against-ebola">Transcript</a> | <a href="http://www.whitehouse.gov/WeeklyAddress/2014/102514_TIROFD/102514_WeeklyAddress.mp4">mp4</a> | <a href="http://www.whitehouse.gov/WeeklyAddress/2014/102514_TIROFD/102514_WeeklyAddress.mp3">mp3</a></p> <p>Learn more:</p> <ul> <li> <a href="http://www.whitehouse.gov/ebola-response">Visit WhiteHouse.gov/Ebola-Response for the latest news.</a></li> </ul> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-link field-field-url"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="field-label-inline-first"> Story URL:&nbsp;</div> <a href="http://www.whitehouse.gov/blog/2014/10/25/weekly-address-focused-fight-against-ebola" target="_blank">http://www.whitehouse.gov/blog/2014/10/25/weekly-address-focused-fight-against-e...</a> </div> </div> </div> <a href= Barack Obama David Hudson Ebola Lawrence Jackson Official The President Weekly Address West Africa White House Sat, 25 Oct 2014 10:00:00 +0000 feed 343712 at http://newsmotion.org After Beating Ebola, Nurse Nina Pham Shares a Hug with the President http://newsmotion.org/feed-story-en/after-beating-ebola-nurse-nina-pham-shares-hug-president <div class="field field-type-text field-field-title"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> After Beating Ebola, Nurse Nina Pham Shares a Hug with the President </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-datetime field-field-date"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <span class="date-display-single">Fri, 10/24/2014</span> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-teaser"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="embed"> <div class="clearfix" id="small-node-embed-image-detail"> <img src="http://www.whitehouse.gov/sites/default/files/imagecache/embedded_img_small/image/image_file/p102414ps-0253.jpg?itok=LubK59A3" alt="President Obama Greets Nina Pham in the Oval Office" title="President Obama Greets Nina Pham in the Oval Office" width="430" height="287" class="imagecache imagecache-embedded_img_small" /> <p> President Barack Obama greets Nina Pham, a Dallas nurse diagnosed with Ebola after caring for an infected patient in Texas, in the Oval Office, Oct. 24, 2014.

From bio-based products to rural manufacturing, the potential to grow and make innovative products in rural America is limitless. Most rural businesses are small ones -- and they support one in three jobs in rural America. Our loans and grants are helping those businesses thrive -- supporting reliable services like water, housing and broadband to make these same communities attract and retain a talented workforce. Collectively, these investments support the businesses and families that call America&rsquo;s rural areas &ldquo;home.&rdquo; That&#39;s because we know that the better we equip those communities with the resources they need to succeed, the stronger our entire country&#39;s economy will be as a result.</p> <p>I&#39;m proud to report that the Department of Agriculture did several really important things to help rural communities across the country this week. Here&#39;s a run down on what we&#39;ve been up to.

One way is through active monitoring, a procedure the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), in coordination with local health authorities,&nbsp;is putting in place to ensure travelers from the affected countries of Liberia, Sierra Leone, and Guinea will report their temperature and symptoms to health officials for 21 days.&nbsp;The CDC will work with state and local officials of six states -- New York, Pennsylvania, Maryland, Virginia, New Jersey, and Georgia, which are the destinations for the majority of travelers from the three countries -- to actively monitor them.&nbsp;</p> <p><a href="http://www.whitehouse.gov/blog/2014/10/22/active-monitoring-and-latest-steps-our-response-ebola" target="_blank">read more</a></p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-link field-field-url"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="field-label-inline-first"> Story URL:&nbsp;</div> <a href="http://www.whitehouse.gov/blog/2014/10/22/active-monitoring-and-latest-steps-our-response-ebola" target="_blank">http://www.whitehouse.gov/blog/2014/10/22/active-monitoring-and-latest-steps-our...</a> </div> </div> </div> <a href= Barack Obama Cleveland Dallas Duncan Ebola Georgia Georgia Guinea Guinea Liberia Maryland Maryland New Jersey New Jersey New York New York Official Pennsylvania Pete Souza Ron Klain senegal Sierra Leone Tanya Somanader The President United States United States Virginia West Africa White House Wed, 22 Oct 2014 23:29:25 +0000 feed 343132 at http://newsmotion.org
