Wong Homer Evens NLCS
Things were looking like they might completely unravel for the St. Louis Cardinals against the San Francisco Giants in Game 2 of the National League Championship Series at Busch Stadium last night. The Cardinals held a 4-3 lead heading into the 9th inning. Trevor Rosenthal again took fans on a roller coaster ride that culminated with a wild pitch on a walk. Mike Duffy crossed the plate to tie the game at 4. Seth Maness was brought in and ended the inning before any other damage was done.
Kolten Wong, making just his 24 career postseason plate appearance, opened the bottom of the ninth looking at the first pitch for a strike. The second pitch resulted in the ball being deposited 370 feet away in the right-field seats, Wong’s jersey being ripped in half by teammates and an NLCS tied at 1.
Cardinals broadcaster Mike Shannon probably called the home run best.
On a somber note, the St. Louis Superman will not be around the stadium for the rest of the National League Championship Series due to security restrictions that are limiting his income.
200,000 Snapchat Photos Released By Hackers
If you only use the official Snapchat application on your mobile phone, you likely don’t have to worry that your photos were released. The servers that were hacked were likely those of Snapsaved.com,a third-party site with no official affiliation to Snapchat. The site let people use Snapchat on their computer as well as their phone. It is suspected that the same people who were behind the recent celebrity photo dumb, nicknamed “The Frappening”, were behind this. This leak, dubbed “The Snappening”, also arose from 4chan discussion forum. The site went up last night with 13 gigabytes worth of photos and videos. People who have seen the photos claimed on Reddit that most are not of the nude variety and the nude photos there appear to be of people over 18 years of age. Users who downloaded pictures of any teens under 16 could be in trouble of the child pornography variety. A leak directly from Snapchat servers would have likely crippled the company. With news that they were likely stolen from another company’s servers, Evan Spiegel is still free to buy more $220 sweatshirts.

Texas Nurse Becomes to Contract Ebola in United States
So this whole Ebola thing is really scary. The World Health Organization is calling it the “most severe acute health emergency in modern times”. More than 4,000 people have died in west Africa, the hardest-hit area. Marine Corps General John Kelly recently raised concerns that the United States could see a mass influx of Ebola-infected patients crossing the southern border. Luckily, a man who walked in Boston hospital recently isn’t thought to have infected anyone, but the hospital did have to get a massive scrubbing. Until now, anyone infected with the virus had contracted it while in an infected region of Africa. Now, a Texas nurse who had “”extensive contact” with the man in Dallas who recently died from the virus has become infected. It is said that she wore protective gear whenever she was around the man and followed all safety protocols. Thomas Frieden, director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention caught heat for claiming that the nurse was at fault for getting infected. A tweet went out this morning saying that Russia is claiming that they are close to a vaccine. A Canadian vaccine is also set to begin testing.
