How to Handle a Measles Outbreak Measles was declared eliminated in the U.S. in 2000, but the CDC reported 644 cases of the disease in 27 states last year. Now, about 70 people in have been infected by an outbreak that started at Disneyland. Most are California residents, but at least eight of them have traveled home to nearby states, raising the concern of a wider outbreak. Disneyland’s home, Orange County, is also a center of the anti-immunization movement. What’s the best way to handle the disease before it gets out of hand?
Securing Public Spaces, Super Wealthy Asians Vehicles are increasingly being used as weapons, as seen in the London Bridge attack over the weekend and in New York’s Times Square last month. The Compton-based company Calpipe is designing security bollards to help make public spaces safer. And novelist Kevin Kwan satirizes the “crazy rich” Asian jet set and their luxurious tastes in his latest book, “Rich People Problems.”
In 'Speechless,' Scott Silveri combines comedy, family & disability Scott Silveri has written and produced sitcoms for more than 20 years. In all that time, he never encountered a TV family that looked anything like the one he grew up in -- with a mom, a dad...and a brother with cerebral palsy. He changed that with his show Speechless on ABC. Silveri tells us about looking to his own past for stories, and why he was determined to make a family comedy and not just a "disability show."
