Healing is supposed to make us feeling better, right?
Yes, and it usually does — in the long run. Unfortunately, most people don’t understand that in the short run, it’s very common for the healing process to make us feel worse.
You see, our bodies (and psyches) move cyclically. First there is birth, then there’s steady development, after that we plateau and enter a period of maintenance, then there’s a period of decay, and eventually, there’s some form of death. Out of that death, there is a new rebirth and our cycle begins all over again.
A new study shows that nearly half of Americans are so concerned about catching the Ebola virus that they are unwilling to travel abroad at all. A school in Cleveland cancelled classes, after learning that one staff member might have flown on the same airline – not even the same route – as one of the infected nurses. RT’s Gayane Chichakyan looks at how Ebola fear-mongering, conspiracies, myths, and cures are spreading – including an Ebola zombie post on social media that went viral.

The 2014 Nobel Peace Prize has been awarded to Kailash Satyarthi and Malala Yousafzay for their work on promoting children’s rights.
The Norwegian Nobel Committee said the two were chosen for “their struggle against the suppression of children and young people and for the right of all children to education.”
Indian Kailash Satyarthi is a child rights activist who founded the Global March Against Child Labor. He has led the fight against child slavery and enabled the rescue of more than 80,000 children over three decades.
Pakistani schoolgirl Malala Yousafzay made the headlines for defying the Taliban. She was shot in the head by a Taliban gunman for arguing that girls have a right to go to school. She has since set up the Malala Fund to help girls access their right to education.
