Business Trip To Iran 'not Helpful', Kerry Tells France
A U.S. official said U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry has told his French counterpart a trip to Iran by French executives was "not helpful" and that it gave the wrong impression that the West could do business with Tehran as usual. The easing of sanctions has prompted Western firms to race for business opportunities. Iran welcomed more than 100 executives from France's biggest firms on Monday, the most senior French trade mission in years. Under Secretary of State for Political Affairs Wendy Sherman told U.S. lawmakers in Washington on Tuesday, "Tehran is not open for business because our sanctions relief is quite temporary, quite limited and quite targeted."

Sierra Leone Into Massive Ebola Isolation Effort
A health worker said Saturday, some residents ran from their homes in Sierra Leone to avoid being trapped during a three-day lockdown to contain the Ebola outbreak, a minor setback on the second day of a massive effort to confine 6 million people to their homes. Nearly 30,000 volunteers and health care workers fanned out across the country on Friday and Saturday to distribute soap and information on how to prevent Ebola, which the World Health Organization says has killed more than 560 people in Sierra Leone and more than 2,600 in the region. Sierra Leone's government is clearly hoping the lockdown will help turn the tide against the disease. In a speech before it began, President Ernest Bai Koroma said "the survival and dignity of each and every Sierra Leonean" was at stake.

The Investments In A Wearables Future
People may debate when the wearable first came into being or what industries will be most impacted by the technology, but there is no debating that startup activity in the wearable space has accelerated. If Apple moving into a category is one sure sign of anything, it’s that. Between consumer interest and investor attention, the wearable category is exploding. Probably the best proxies for gauging consumer interest in startup wearable devices are crowdfunding sites. Of the 443 crowdfunded projects previously analyzed, 64 of them were what one would call a wearable device. If the data shows anything it shows that both consumer and investor interest in the wearable space is high and continues to grow.
