MOSCOW, January 17 (Sputnik) — Mohamed El Makouli died near the French city of Avignon on Wednesday, when an attacker rushed into the victim’s house in the village of Beaucet, shouting “I am your god, I am your Islam” before stabbing the man 17 times, the National Observatory Against Islamophobia said, according to the AFP news agency.

Thomas Eric Duncan is the first confirmed Ebola victim in the US. Duncan arrived in the US from Liberia on the 20th of September. The hospital sent him home when he said he felt sick on the 26th. Two days later he was admitted to the hospital and diagnosed with Ebola. Between those two days, he was contagious. A team of Federal Ebola experts arrived in Dallas, Texas to help control the situation. The Dallas County Health Department says they’re already closely monitoring a second suspected patient. Over 3,000 people have died from Ebola in West Africa. How well will the US respond to the global epidemic on its home turf?
In the summer of 2014, the U.S. faced a crisis as more than 66,000 unaccompanied migrant kids were apprehended at the border with Mexico, most of them from Central America and Mexico.

Eric Garner’s death by chokehold was a homicide.
The Staten Island man who collapsed after being placed in the banned restraint by a police officer died from compression of the neck and chest, the New York City Medical Examiner ruled Friday.
The 43-year-old victim’s asthma, obesity and high blood pressure were also contributing factors in his death, the autopsy determined.
It was the latest development in a case that sparked national outrage after The Daily News obtained video showing Officer Daniel Pantaleo putting Garner in the chokehold.
Garner’s widow said she was relieved that the ME confirmed what had been suspected for weeks.
“Thank God the truth is finally out,” Esaw Garner told The Daily News. “Thank God for that.”

In my line of work, I hear from hundreds of people a month, and connect with professionals in a more public, open way than ever before. Through this experience, I’ve seen scores of toxic behaviors that push people away (including me). And I’ve witnessed the damage these behaviors cause to relationships, professional success, and to the well-being of both the individual behaving negatively, and to everyone around him or her.
Let’s be real – we’ve all acted in toxic, damaging ways at one time or another (none of us are immune to it), but many people are more evolved, balanced, and aware, and it happens only rarely in their lives.
Whether your toxic behavior is a common occurrence, or once in a blue moon, it’s critical for your happiness and success that you are able to recognize when you’re behaving badly, and shift it when it emerges.
