San FranciscoNed Yost had the golden touch once again, leaving the Royals halfway home to a World Series championship. Kansas City seized control of the series with a 3-2 victory over the Giants at AT&T Park, handing San Francisco its first home World Series loss since 2002. Yost’s moves in Game 3 paid big dividends for the Royals, who improved to 10-1 this postseason and now find themselves two wins from the franchise’s first title in 29 years. The Royals manager started Jarrod Dyson in center field, shifting Lorenzo Cain to right field. Cain made a sliding catch on Buster Posey’s first-inning line drive that likely would have fallen in for extra bases had Nori Aoki been there instead.

Humphrey while we're at it). From the airwaves to your ears today from 1:00 on PBS 106.7fm Melbourne.* BAD NEWS FROM LONDON TODAY: LONDON (AP) - Jack Bruce was part Mississippi Delta and part Carnaby Street. In his glorious heyday as bassist and lead vocalist of 1960s power trio Cream he helped create a sound that combined American blues and psychedelia to thrill audiences throughout the world. Bruce, who died Saturday of liver disease at age 71, enjoyed a long, respected solo career after the band's acrimonious breakup, but will be best remembered for his stint with Cream and for classics like "Sunshine of Your Love" and "I Feel Free." Much of the attention was focused on guitar wizard Eric Clapton, but Bruce wrote many of the band's signature tunes and served as lead vocalist. He also provided the intense bass guitar that, with Ginger Baker's explosive drums, underpinned Cream's rhythmic, driving sound. They had it all - commercial and critical success - until individual egos intervened and they disbanded, entering rock and roll mythology as the original supergroup: super-talented, and super-troubled.

The official Manchester United website last week confirmed that Carrick had returned to training as he stepped up his rehabilitation, and today they confirmed that he will feature against West Ham for the club’s U21s. Manchester United midfielder Michael Carrick to play for U21s tonight against West Ham Carrick was an unused sub against West Brom on Monday night as the Red Devils drew 2-2 with the Baggies at the Hawthorns.

Herrera, who only lasted 45 minutes against Albion, was making his comeback after being out with a cracked rib while Di Maria was pictured with ice on his thigh after suffering a dead leg, but Van Gaal stated he only missed one day's training. He said in a news conference: "Ander Herrera was already fit for the last game and [as for] Di Maria, I said after the [West Brom] match that it should be not so heavy. He has trained on Thursday so no problem." Di Maria, who is United's club record 59.7 million- pound signing, has scored three goals and created four more in his last four games. Uni ...

World Health Organization

* The number of cases of Ebola has exceeded 10,000, the World Health Organization says* President Koroma Hosts AU Chairperson By State House Communications Unit President Dr Ernest Bai Koroma on Thursday 23rd October hosted a high powered delegation led by the Chairperson of the African Union (AU) Dr Nkosazana Dlamini Zuma and the Executive Secretary of the Economic Commission for Africa Mr. Carlos Lopes at State House, Freetown. Mrs. Zuma was in the country to *** the situation on the ground, efforts made by government to contain the Ebola outbreak and explore ways in which the AU can intervene such as convincing African flights to resume operations in the West African Sub region. President Koroma described the visit as a signal to the international community that Sierra Leone is still open and does not want to be isolated. “This visit gives us a lot of hope,” he said. He informed the delegation that the country has so far adhered to the protocols of the World Health Organization (WHO) and added that government was quite ready and committed to improve on screening measures already in ...* President Obama is working against nearly treasonous obstructionism from GOP politicians, but has faced the challenge of the Ebola epidemic in spite of it. President Obama is working without a US Surgeon General because GOP politicians are still upset that a *** is President and not janitor in the White House. Yet he has faced the challenge of the disease. President Obama does something GOP politicians really hate: he informs himself. So he took time to find out what the challenge of Ebola really is. Normally, the leadership needed to face a possible epidemic in the US is that of the Surgeon General. The GOP in Congress are opposed to processing President Obama's choice for Surgeon General at the expense of the health and welfare of the American people. So President Obama has sought input from the World Health Organization, the Centers for Disease Control in Atlanta, and the NIH in Maryland. I remember the HIV/AIDS epidemic. President Reagan ignored the deaths of over 20,000 people before his administra ...
