With growing criticism that the world still is not acting fast enough against the surging Ebola epidemic, President Barack Obama has called the outbreak a national security priority.
Supplies aren't the greatest need: "Trained health professionals for these Ebola treatment units is a critical shortage," said Dr. Steve Monroe of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, or CDC.
CDC will offer the course at a facility in Anniston, Alabama, for the next few months, teaching infection-control and self-protection and letting volunteers — expected to be mostly from nongovernment aid groups — practice patient triage.
Last week, the U.
When the Browns explained their plans to Brian Hoyer about bringing rookie Johnny Manziel into the game, Cleveland's starting quarterback bit his lip and devised one of his own.
Showing the poise that helped win him the starting job in the first place, Hoyer completed several clutch passes while driving the Browns 85 yards to set up Billy Cundiff's 29-yard field goal with 3 seconds left, giving Cleveland its first win in a home opener since 2004, a 26-24 victory over the New Orleans Saints on Sunday.
Hoyer went 8 of 11 for 78 yards on the final drive, converting twice on third down and threading a 10-yard pass over the middle to tight end Gary Barnidge on fourth down — the kind of play that can help convince skeptical fans and earn the trust of teammates.
Hoyer wasn't feeling nearly so excited earlier in the week when offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan informed him that Manziel might play some.
 Manziel's time on the field seemed to inspire Hoyer, who completed 15 of 19 passes after his backup came out and handed the Saints (0-2) their fifth consecutive regular-season road loss.
The Saints were unable to get a stop on Cleveland's final drive, and they helped the Browns with an offside penalty and blown coverage on a key 28-yard pass play.
If that wasn't bad enough coach Sean Payton and defensive coordinator Rob Ryan had a heated exchange on the sideline in the fourth quarter.
Overshadowed by Hoyer's drive was Browns linebacker Karlos Dansby's sack of Brees late in the fourth, which stopped a Saints drive and took them out of field goal range.
Getting off to poor starts caused the Arizona Cardinals and New York Giants to miss the playoffs a year ago.
Ted Ginn Jr. ran 71 yards on a punt return for a go-ahead fourth-quarter touchdown, backup quarterback Drew Stanton was solid starting for an injured Carson Palmer and the Cardinals' defense forced three of New York's four turnovers in a 25-14 win over the bumbling Giants on Sunday.
The Cardinals got off to a 3-4 start last season and going 7-2 down the stretch wasn't enough to make the postseason.
The Giants rallied from a 10-0 first-half deficit and took a 14-7 lead in the third quarter on a 1-yard touchdown pass from Manning (26 of 39 passes for 277 yards and two interceptions) to Daniel Fells.
Playing for the first time in a regular-season game since 2010, Stanton (14 of 19 for 167) directed three long scoring drives.
A fumble on the ensuing kickoff return and two more field goals finished off the Cardinals' win.
Three turnovers by the O were the difference in the game, including a fumble by halfback Rashad Jennings at the Cardinals 15 with less than 5 minutes to play and New York down 22-14.
Linebacker Jon Beason (toe) and nickel cornerback Walter Thurmond (pectoral) had to leave the game for New York.
Ellington had 91 yards on 15 carries and Larry Fitzgerald caught six passes for 51 yards.
