unique way to gauge social trends and interests in the year’s top stop stories,
compelling newsmakers, and viral fads.

- 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. The World Health Organisation said it was in urgent talks with donors and international agencies to deploy more medical staff and resources to one of the world's poorest regions. The WHO reported 57 new deaths between July 24 and July 27 in Guinea, Liberia, Sierra Leone and Nigeria. Authorities in Nigeria, which recorded its first Ebola case last week when a U.S. citizen died after arriving on a flight from Liberia, said all passengers travelling from areas at risk would be temperature-screened for the virus.

- U.S. looks for Asian cooperation on sanctions against Russia
By Rachel Armstrong SINGAPORE (Reuters) - The United States is lobbying Asian governments to join in sanctions imposed by Washington and the European Union against Russia over its support for separatist rebels in eastern Ukraine, a senior State Department official said on Wednesday. The European Union and United States announced further financial measures against Russia on Tuesday, targeting its energy, banking and defense sectors in their strongest action yet. Now they are looking for backing from Asia, given that Russian trade flows are focused increasingly on that part of the world. "It is certainly our hope that countries in this region, which includes many significant commercial and financial centers, will join us in putting this kind of pressure on Russia," the official told reporters in Singapore.
