I’ll take 30 of them

June 1987, Madonna was rushed to the Cedars Sinai hospital for an X-ray after her then-husband—Sean Penn hit her across the head with a baseball bat. At the time, they had been having a heart-to-heart talk about reconciling.
Madonna did not make an official complaint because Penn was about to serve a short jail term for attacking a film extra and violating the probation he’d been given for punching a fan. It was a decision she would come to regret. In the late afternoon of December 28, 1988, Penn scaled the wall surrounding the Malibu house and found Madonna alone in the master bedroom.
According to a report filed by Madonna with the Malibu sheriff’s office, the two began to quarrel. Penn told her he owned her “lock, stock and barrel”. When she told him she was leaving the house, he tried to bind her hands with an electric cord. Screaming and afraid, Madonna fled from the bedroom. Penn chased her into the living room, caught her and bound her to a chair with heavy twine. Then he threatened to shave her hair. Penn was “drinking liquor straight from the bottle” and the abuse went on for nine hours, during which he smacked and forced Madonna to perform a “degrading sex act” on him.
He went out to buy more alcohol, leaving Madonna bound and gagged. Some hours later, he returned and continued his attacks, then finally untied her. Madonna then fled the house and ran to her car. Penn ran after her and was banging on the windows of her Thunderbird while she spoke to police on her mobile phone. Fifteen minutes later, she staggered into the sheriff’s office.
I felt a need to make this since it’s been getting worse!
WHAT IS IT?
The Ebola outbreak that emerged in March in West Africa has killed more than half the 1,300-plus people who have been infected, making it the deadliest outbreak ever. The virus, which causes severe bleeding and has no known cure, has been found in Guinea, Sierra Leone and Liberia.
WHY IS IT SO DEADLY?
Ebola punches holes in blood vessels, causing massive bleeding and shock. It does this by killing endothelial cells, which form the blood vessels’ lining.
When those cells die, blood and other fluids can leak into other organs and body parts.The virus replicates very quickly.
It effectively disables the immune system by breaking down the development of antibodies. Scientists are not certain exactly how.
Direct contact with the blood or secretion of another person. Exposure to objects such as needles that have come in contact with someone who has the virus. Animals can also carry the virus such as a bat or a primate.
There’s recently been some evidence that it can be air-borne. In an experiment the virus was transmitted between monkeys & pigs without any direct contact.
SIGNS & SYMPTOMS
- Days 1-3: flu like symptoms & profound weakness
- Days 4-7: vomiting, diarrhea, nausea, low blood pressure, headache & amnesia
- Days 7-10: internal & visible bleeding, eventually ends in coma, shock or death
IS THERE REALLY NO CURE?
Ebola research is still in it’s infancy and there isn’t much known about it. Currently there is no vaccine for it.
Some people have survived as they weren’t exposed to a serious strain or their immune systems were extremely strong.
CAN IT SPREAD TO OTHER COUNTRIES?
CNN reports that the Center for Disease Controls emphasizes there is “no significant risk” of an Ebola outbreak in the United States. Kamiliny Kalahne, an epidemiologist with Doctors Without Borders, says there has never been a confirmed case of Ebola spreading to a developed country.
"This is because people generally transmit the infection when they are very sick, have a high fever and a lot of symptoms — and in these situations, they don’t travel," she said
However as for the countries already infected, Margaret Chan, the director of the World Health Organization has said that the Ebola outbreak “is moving faster than our efforts to control it.”

I’m honestly scared for my life…this is the scariest thing that’s ever happened.
