On July 20, the Ebola outbreak that had been simmering in West Africa for months, growing more out of control by the day, arrived in Nigeria, Africa’s most populous country.

When it comes to dealing with bullying, calmness is the key – Independent.ie.

Our instinct, as parents, is to fix the problem immediately, and we interrogate our child with hundreds of questions. We need all the information we can get in as short a time as possible so we can plough ahead with solving this problem. After all, that’s our job, isn’t it? To solve problems, and protect our children.

We must fight that urge, says Aine Lynch, and focus on giving our child our full attention. Bullying is a disempowering position to be in, and when a child has told you the news, the last thing they need is for you to go on is a solo crusade; it’s important to involve them in any decisions made on dealing with the situation. Sharing their story can also help them put it in perspective and maybe even help solve the issue. “The child has a unique and valuable knowledge of the situation, and is therefore in a better position to suggest what might and might not help”, says Lynch, “it’s our job as parents to teach and support our child to manage difficult situations in life – if parents take over the situation it is less likely that a child will learn coping skills in life that will help them deal with every difficult turn.”…

A Deadly Legacy in Iraq – NYTimes.com.

Another chapter has been added to the dismal legacy of America’s involvement in Iraq. An investigation by C.J. Chivers, published in The Times on Wednesday, found that American and American-trained Iraqi troops discovered thousands of abandoned and highly dangerous chemical weapons left over from the rule of Saddam Hussein. These weapons, found from 2004 to 2011, wounded troops from both armies. There are now fears that some could fall into the hands of fighters for the Islamic State, which now controls much of the territory where the weapons were found.

These weapons are not the chemical and biological weapons of mass destruction that the George W. Bush administration claimed as the excuse for embarking on the Iraq war and that, it turned out, did not exist. Instead, they are aged remnants left over from an earlier chemical weapons program in the late-1970s and 1980s that was shut down in 1991. Mr. Hussein used the weapons against Iran in a war from 1980-88
