And there are questions around what constitutes "voluntary quarantine," and how it's enforced.

U.S. public health regulations do allow an individual to be held if there is "reasonable" cause.

13} WORLDWATCH_PKG


After caring for Ebola patients in Sierra Leone, a nurse is vowing to end her voluntary quarantine at home in Maine today. Kaci Hickox broke quarantine briefly yesterday...telling reporters her civil rights are being violated as a result of the restrictions. State officials want Hickox to remain in isolation until November 10th, the end of the 21-day incubation period for Ebola, even though she's tested negative for the virus. Investigators will continue to shift through debris today to determine how an unmanned Antares rocket exploded moments after liftoff in Virginia on Tuesday. The company under contract by NASA for the failed re-supply mission to the International Space Station… promises to find the cause of the failure. Some critics are pointing to the use of 1960's era Soviet engines as having played a role. And, The San Francisco Giants have been crowned champions in game seven of the world series. The Giants beat out the Kansas City Royals 3 to 2 in last night's game. It's the team's third win in five seasons. Madison Bumgarner, who pitched five shutout innings of relief, was named the most valuable player. Those are some of the day's top stories. I'm Anne Marie Green CBS News New York.

The shopping lines for Black Friday -- will be forming even earlier this year. Macy's and Best Buy have already announced they'll be opening at 6 p.m. on Thanksgiving Day.

Retailers closed on Turkey Day include TJ Maxx, Marshalls, Jo-Ann Fabrics, Homegoods and Pier 1 Imports. The trend toward early Black Friday sales reached a fever pitch last year, with K-Mmart opening at 6 a-m on thanksgiving.

Are you dreaming of more garden space next year? If so, now is the time to make it happen. Sharon Meyer and garden expert Charlie Nardozzi show us an easy way to turn lawn, into garden.

19} GARDENAM_PKG


So, what have you got up your sleeve today? I was going to read the newspaper. No, a lot of times when you start to do a new garden, you did up the sod and you remove it and it's back breaking work and it takes all of that rich soil out of the ground. True. A better way to do it, is to do lasagna gardening. We're going to grow noodles? We're growing noodles. No, lasagna gardening is just like lasagna, you are putting layers down on top of the grass, so it will all die in the fall and by next spring, you just plant right through it. So the first step, is to mow the lawn. The second step is to get your regular old newspaper. You can use black and white newspaper, even if it has colored ink on it it's ok, as long as it's not glossy newspaper. OK And it's a bit of a windy day here, so you are going to have to help me with this one. I'm going to have to help you. You lay down three to four layers of newspaper on the soil, and as you lay it down, you are going to put some water on it. Because if you don't, it's going to be a three stooges routine. And you put down a couple of different layers like this over lapping them as you go. OK What this will do, is it will kill the grass that's underneath there. But of course this will all decompose by spring, and this is all broken down. Really, ok. So once you have your layer down of your newspaper, nicely watered...good job. Thank you. So now you want to put down about a six inch layer of hay, just on top. Ideally you'd use straw, but this time of year there's a lot of hay, and you may get some weed seeds but its still a good product to use. OK now that you've got the hay mulch down, you don't have to water that unless it's a real windy day. You want to get couple of inch layer of compost. You want to sprinkle that right on top, we'll just use our hands to do that ad what that's going to do is hold it all in place. And help it decompose. And now, you do nothing at all all winter. You just leave it there. And by the spring it will all kind of decompose, so you can come in with your new perennials and your new plants, dig a hole, put them in there, all the compost and everything will have roots set and then they'll grow really well. Amazing. So, what have you got up your sleeve today? I was going to read the newspaper.

THE FEDERAL RESERVE IS EXPECTED TO CLOSE A CHAPTER IN HISTORY THIS WEEK AND ANNOUNCE THE CONCLUSION OF ITS MASSIVE STIMULUS PROGRAM. KNOWN AS QUANTITATIVE EASING, THE PROGRAM IS WIDELY CREDITED WITH DRIVING INVESTORS BACK INTO STOCKS IN THE AFTERMATH OF THE FINANCIAL CRISIS. WHAT'S THIS MEAN FOR THE MARKETS? CELIA CAZAYOUX OF PEOPLE'S UNITED BANK IS HERE TO HELP US UNDERSTAND. The stock market has been quite volatile over the past few weeks. Should investors be worried? Interestingly, about a month ago, our chief equity strategist wrote a piece for our clients the title of which was "Are we overdue for a correction?" In that piece he stated that even though the markets may be due for a pullback, we didn't think that investors should be shying away from stocks primarily because the current economic conditions are generally supportive of stocks and that any pullback would be more of a normal market correction rather than the beginning of a new bear market. What's the difference between a normal correction and a bear market? When stocks are down significantly, don't investors worry that it's the beginning of something worse? A general rule of thumb is a pull back of at least 20% in a broad market index, such as the S&P 500, is considered to be an entry into a bear market. Bear markets usually begin when investors are anticipating a recession, when inflation is increasing quickly, or when the Federal Reserve is raising interest rates in order to slow down an overheated economy. Often, all three negative conditions are in place at the same time. Today, none of those conditions are in place. We do think the recent pull back is more of a normal market correction. The stock market has appreciated over the past several years with little volatility. This most recent pullback of ~10% was the first in almost 3 years. That's unusual. So, a 10% pull back is a pretty normal experience for equity investors? Yes, that experience is in line with what one would experience in a typical bull market. It's just that over the past few years, volatility has been so low that normal volatility doesn't feel normal. It's a reminder that markets don't appreciate in a straight line fashion. Historically, bull markets have numerous pullbacks as they run their course. What do you tell your clients? While it can be difficult at times to ride through these periods of volatility especially given the experience of 2008, we try to remind clients of what a "normal" experience is like for equity investors and focus on their long term goals and planning. That can help provide a measure of comfort during periods of volatility.

As officals monitor a Rutland man over concerns of Ebola -- there continues to be many many questions about what is being done to contain the epidemic in West Africa. Social media expert Alex Tursi joins us now to talk about how social media is being used in that fight. Welcome. How are mobile techonolgies being used as tools being used? how social media and mobile technology is being used to contain the epidemic in Africa (it is credited with helping Nigeria get Ebola-free) and communicate about it? There is some really neat social media and technology to look at. We even used Twitter at Fletcher Allen to talk about Ebola preparedness.

Quarantined over ebola concerns. Channel Three talks with the man who travelled to West Africa -- and is now in isolation for the next 21 days. Jennifer Costa reports.

Peter Italia -- of Rutland -- is being quarantined at an undisclosed location in Rutland County -- after returning from a one month journey to the West African countries of Guinea and Sierra Leone. He says he went to investigate the size and scope of the Ebola outbreak. ((Peter Italia/quarantined 00:06:40 "I saw a lot of confusion going on here in the United States a lot of misinformation coming from the CDC.")) We reached him by phone. Italia says he's now under 24-hour guard. Vermont health officials say he's asymptomatic -- but they're monitoring him for the next 21 days as a precaution. ((Peter Italia/quarantined 00:18:10 "this is voluntary quarantine but it's not really totally voluntary. if you don't agree to it then they will execute some kind of court order against you. So I am going along with it because I understand everybody's concern but I don't necessarily agree with it.")) Italia went to Africa as a private citizen. He says he's a medical doctor -- trained in the Dominican Republic. But the medical practice board tells us he never completed a license application last year because his medical school does not qualify under state standards. ((Peter Italia/quarantined 00:18:40 "I don't like the fact that they tried to make me into somebody who I'm not in other words disparaging me.")) Tuesday he was the center of an emergency news conference in Burlington. Italia's motives were not clear to authorities. He caused enough concern during his time in West Africa that the FBI was involved in his case. O his facebook page he writes about his book on supernatural medicine which he says "talks about his knowledge of space and time travel to help seriously ill and dying patients." He claims the borders in West Africa are too porous and he observed people crossing countries with limited health screenings. Italia says he tried to share his observations with the World Health Organization -- but was ignored. ((Peter Italia/quarantined 00:20:59 "I did this out of concern for everybody and I did it for the good of everybody, to go there and actually find out what was going on and report it to everybody hoping it would make the whole situation better for everybody all around.")) Italia says he was surprised when he was intercepted by federal and Vermont authorities at JFK Airport in New York Tuesday. He does not believe he's put anyone at risk. ((JC 00:10:59 "do you think that you came in contact with anyone who was displaying symptoms or had ebola? PI: No. I didn't come in contact with anyone that I know who or that I could identify as being sick.")):16 Now I could have come in contact somebody but did I come in contact with someone who was sick? No. I purposely stayed away.")) Jennifer Costa -- channel 3 news -- Burlington.

Adults with epilepsy that does not respond to medication may want to consider a low carb, high fat diet. Maryland researchers found patients on modified Atkins diets and ketogenic diets had fewer seizures. Those diets include things like bacon, eggs, butter, leafy vegetables and fish. Scientists in Cincinnati have created the first human stomach tissue with stem cells. They say the gastric tissue can be used to study stomach cancer and diabetes.. and pave the way to generating other organ tissues. And a new study finds gastric bypass surgery results in greater weight loss than stomach banding. But Seattle researchers found bypass surgery had a higher risk of short term complications.

Danielle Monroe was having a great time playing at the Rutland Free Library with her kids and other moms and children. ((Danielle Monroe/Mendon 10:32:38:26 Most of the time, afterwards, since we're in the library it's really easy to get them to go downstairs and to the kids book room.)) Encouraging the youngest members of the library to read is on the top of Abby Noland's list. She's the library's new director. She took on the role just over 2 months ago and has a long list of things she wants to do to encourage kids to read. ((Abby Noland/Director Rutland Free Library 09:38:24:29 A teen librarian. yeah, that's a big dream . :29)) The library serves 22,000 people in Mendon, Rutland City, Ira, Tinmouth, and Rutland Town. With the last new book store closing in Rutland earlier this year, Noland says she wants to ensure that area readers have access to new books. ((Abby Noland/director 09:40:21:29 When there aren't as many new books available, then we have to re-look at our collection development policies. :28)) Noland would like to see more of Vermont's 183 libraries join the Catamount consortium. It's an open source multi-library shared catalog. Members can access materials from other libraries as part of the shared system. The Rutland Free Library joined in September and 12 other Vermont libraries are also members. Noland says even with tablets and other electronic means of accessing books, nothing replaces reading a real one. ((Abby Noland/Director, Rutland Free Library 09:38:55:17 the book is here to stay. There's something tactile about books. :00)) Noland would also like to see the public have access to a pretty cool historical attraction at the library - in the basement. ((Ron Lurvey/Rutland Free Library 10:40:30:20 We're standing in the ante-room, for three of the jail cells that were left from when this building was built in 1858. :39)) The jail cells were mostly used for storing confiscated contraband during prohibition when it was a former federal post office and courthouse - before being converted to the library. Although, there were a few criminals who did spend time there. ((Ron Lurvey/rutland free library 10:42:33:05 It's one of Rutland's gems. :35)) Back upstairs, Danielle Monroe says, the library doesn't just help get her kids reading, but helps parents as well. ((Danielle Monroe/Mendon10:30:26: 25 it's a great place for parents to get to meet each other,when you are home stuck inside with a little baby all day it can be very hard to meet other people ..so this is a good...haha :38)) If you would like more information about the Rutland Free Library, go to our website WCAX.com.
