Five Things to Know for Your New Day – Tuesday, October 28, 2014

There's more good news on the fight against Ebola in America, ISIS shows another propaganda video with a Western hostage, and a homeless man shows that talent can be found anywhere.

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


Keep calm and carry on: Even though most Americans think there will be another Ebola diagnosis in the coming weeks, the majority are pretty sure the government can prevent a nationwide epidemic, according to the latest CNN/ORC International poll. And while an infected doctor remains hospitalized in New York, a quarantined nurse who said her rights were being violated in New Jersey was released after proving - once again - she didn't have the virus.

    Good morning CNN team. I'm aware of and understand the comment policy. But I find it rare that no comments were made yesterday other than the ones that I made. And they are still awaiting moderation. I look forward to commenting on New Day topics. I truly enjoyed the homeless man's piano playing as much as the people who stopped and listened.

    Hey CNN, I am done with this website. You can blame the loss of a reader on the almost full screen ads on the sides of my screen. I can barely touch my damn iPad without being redirected to some BS advertisement. Oh yeah, and if you could relay a message to those advertisers.....I will NEVER buy anything they sell for being so annoying!
