Today's Birthday
Mika Waltari (1908)
Finnish author Mika Waltari is best known for his 1945 historical novel The Egyptian, which is set during the reign of the Pharaoh Akhenaten and was hailed by Egyptologists for its accuracy in describing ancient Egyptian life. The themes explored in the book struck a chord with readers in the aftermath of World War II, and it became an international bestseller, serving as the basis for the 1954 Hollywood movie of the same name. Where—and when—are some of his other historical novels set? Discuss

Lance Armstrong (1971)
Once the darling of the cycling world and a symbol of hope for those battling cancer, Armstrong recently suffered a spectacular fall from grace following revelations that the US Anti-Doping Agency possessed evidence that he had been doping since the late 1990s. He was subsequently stripped of his record seven consecutive Tour de France titles as well as his Olympic medal and banned from the sport for life. After repeated denials, Armstrong finally came clean in 2013, admitting his guilt to whom?

John Willard Marriott (1900)
A Mormon farm boy from Utah, Marriott left behind the life he knew to open a root beer stand far from home in Washington, DC, in 1927. His gamble quickly paid off. He soon had a chain of family-style drive-ins up and down the US East Coast. In 1957, he opened his first hotel. This too was a great success, and today Marriott International, Inc., is one of the world's largest hospitality companies. Why did he choose Washington, DC, as the site of his first root beer stand?

Richard III's Remains Reveal Brutal Battle Wounds
Analysis of the remains of King Richard III, discovered under a Leicester parking lot in 2012, lends credence to historical accounts of his final battle. Computed tomography (CT) scans and micro-CT imaging have revealed injuries he sustained from blows to his head and body on that fateful day in 1485. The extensive injuries to his skull suggest that he was not wearing a helmet, while the lack of defensive injuries on his arms and hands indicates that he was otherwise still armor-clad. Discuss

Fight against World Hunger Making Gains
There are now 209 million fewer people facing chronic undernourishment than there were in 1990, considerable progress in the fight to end world hunger. Much of the improvement has taken place in Asia, where rapid economic growth and rising incomes have cut the number of hungry people by 50 percent. Though population growth, climate change, and political instability in areas like the Middle East and Africa constitute significant threats to food security, experts believe it is still possible to wipe out world hunger by 2025.

$1 Billion Needed to Fight Ebola
With the Ebola outbreak in West Africa still uncontained, the UN is increasing its calls for funding in the fight against the epidemic from $100 million just a month ago to $1 billion today. This health crisis, the World Health Organization's assistant director-general says, is "unparalleled in modern times," with thousands infected thus far and the number of cases projected to double every three weeks if containment efforts are not stepped up. According to the president of the medical charity Doctors Without Borders, the response to the outbreak has been insufficient thus far and the window of opportunity to contain the outbreak is closing.
