    Sierra Leone declares emergency as Ebola death toll hits 729

    By Umaru Fofana FREETOWN (Reuters) - Sierra Leone declared a state of emergency and called in troops to quarantine Ebola victims on Thursday, joining neighbouring Liberia in imposing tough controls as the death toll from the worst-ever outbreak of the virus hit 729 in West Africa.

    Two professors from Syracuse University, Robert Wysocki and Jeff Karson, dreamed up — or we should say, ignited? — a project to create manmade lava three years ago. They customized a 3 million BTU bronze furnace they had bought used in Canada for $2,500. To create the lava, they start with Dresser trap rock and use the furnace "like a Crock-Pot" to melt it.
