 It was a created media feeding frenzy issue in America where Ebola was never going to be a threat unless it had a sizable spontaneous mutation, but a huge and real issue in poor African countries with almost no health infrastructure and many other variables making it difficult to get a handle on the outbreak. And some of these countries have lost many key people of the few they did have... ...with health, geopolitical, economic and other major consequences that will...

You said it.  Things like where's my simply printable step by step directions on the Mac browser version? Screw all this whiz-bang UI crap where next steps pop up or whatever they're doing instead......nearly unusable for my current purposes... 
 Beat me to it.... :)
 You also better get something like Ghostery to keep from being tracked by Google Analytics on Adsense using websites.... Not saying it's better, but am I missing something here?  How is this derivative of anything (other than in selection algorithms and catalog) - as it's the first VIDEO music streaming service, no....???I personally spend far more of my music listening time on YouTube than Spotify, Pandora, iTunes radio, etc., combined, so guess I'm a potential user.... ...
