5 Things To Know For Your New Day, October 30

"Unusual" Russian flights worry NATO. A nurse says no to Ebola quarantine. And the World Series winner is ...

It's Thursday, and here are the "5 things to know for your New Day."

1. EBOLA
Nurse not willing to stay put: Not long ago, Kaci Hickox was fighting Ebola in West Africa, doing what she could to treat those with the deadly disease. Now, she's in the middle of a different fight - this time, in Maine. Maine health officials say they're filing a court order requiring the nurse take a 21-day quarantine.  Hickox is challenging that and says she has no intention of staying put.

 

2. RUSSIAN FLIGHTS
Unusual scale and size:  An "unusual" uptick in the size and scale of Russian aircraft flying throughout European airspace has raised alarm bells for NATO officials. Multiple groups of Russian military bomber and tanker aircraft, flying under the guise of military maneuvers, were detected and monitored over sections of the Baltic Sea, North Sea and Black Sea on Tuesday and Wednesday.

 

3. OBAMA, NETANYAHU
Frosty relationship: Barack Obama and Benjamin Netanyahu haven't liked each other for years - they just aren't bothering to hide it anymore.  Longtime observers of the U.S.-Israeli relationship struggle to remember when the personal chemistry between the leaders of the two countries was so bad. Even the Israeli prime minister has compared their relationship to that of a bickering "old couple."

 

4. ISIS AIRSTRIKES
Losing confidence: Americans still strongly support airstrikes against ISIS - but they're losing confidence that the strikes will wipe out the group's military capability, a new poll shows.  The poll also found a war-weary public with little faith in Obama and high confidence that a terrorist attack on U.S. soil will happen again soon.

 

5. WORLD SERIES
San Francisco does it again: The San Francisco Giants won the World Series for the third time in five years. It goes like this: 2010, World Series champs. 2011, not even in the playoffs. 2012, World Series champs. 2013, a losing record. 2014: Well, you know.

 

Those are your five biggies for the day. Here are a few others that are brewing and have the Internet buzzing:

    I like the new person in the morning. Nice change

    1. The quarantine isn't about this person. How about the Dr. that said he was fine but had Ebola? What about the next one?

    3. Obama and Netanyahu, Obama doesn't believe the Jews are fighting for survival.

    Why take a chance at spreading something? Too much is not known about this stuff. What is the big deal here. Stay put for awhile and enjoy the down time. Sounds to me like someone is wanting attention!! Just my opinion!
