FORT KENT, Maine (AP) — All but daring Maine health authorities to go to court to have her confined, nurse Kaci Hickox went out on an hour-long bike ride Thursday in defiance of the state's voluntary quarantine for medical workers who have treated Ebola patients.
LONDON/EDINBURGH (Reuters) - Britain's opposition Labour party could be almost wiped out in Scotland at a UK-wide election next year, a poll showed on Thursday, raising questions about its ability to defeat Prime Minister David Cameron's Conservatives. The poll, by Ipsos MORI, showed just 23 percent of Scottish voters planned to back the left-leaning party, which has been hurt by the rise in popularity of the Scottish National Party (SNP) despite the SNP's failure to secure Scottish independence. Labour has traditionally dominated Scottish politics and won 41 of 59 Scottish seats in Britain's parliament in the last UK-wide election, in 2010. By contrast, Ipsos said 52 percent of Scots planned to back the SNP, who led the push for Scottish independence at a referendum last month.
