Forty health care workers in Mali are receiving a vaccine that could guard against the Ebola virus as a University of Maryland School of Medicine center launches the first human trials of the experimental vaccine. One person received the vaccine Wednesday, two more were expected to receive it Thursday and dozens more are scheduled to follow in the coming weeks. The inoculation was developed at the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases in Bethesda using an inert virus that is coated in an Ebola protein, so the body builds immunity to the deadly virus.

If there has been an administration in the history of this country with a more muddled, incompetent, directionless foreign policy than that of the current administration, I am not aware of it. President Barack Obama makes Jimmy Carter look like Winston Churchill. Syria, Afghanistan, Iran, Egypt, Libya, North Korea, Mali, you name it. Unmitigated disasters again and again and again.

Algerian forces claimed a decisive victory this weekend over al-Qaida-affiliated Islamist militants who took over a giant natural gas plant near the country's border with Mali last week and threatened to kill hostages and blow up the facility. But the resolution of the crisis may turn out to be the classic definition of a Pyrrhic victory - that is, one achieved at such high cost that another like it will likely lead to defeat. The Algerian government reacted swiftly and ruthlessly to the terrorists, eventually capturing or killing all the militants.

Polio has spread to two more African countries that had been free of the crippling disease and threatens to become a major epidemic across west and central Africa, the World Health Organization said yesterday. The disease begins reaching its high season next month. The spread of polio to Guinea and Mali brings to 12 the number of previously polio-free African countries that have experienced an outbreak of the disease since January 2003. The spread deals a serious setback to the agency's efforts to eradicate the disease by year's end, a goal also hampered by a funding gap of $100 million.

THE QUESTION This week, the film Annapolis, which was not shot in our state capital, arrives at local theaters. Princeton, N.J., and Philly as stand-ins for Annapolis? What gives? Have you ever been so distracted by stand-in scenery that you couldn't enjoy the film? WHAT YOU SAY For me, nothing tops the setting chosen for the Pennsylvania hunting scenes in The Deer Hunter, the searing epic of the Vietnam War. The mountains chosen for the outdoor scenes were appropriate for the Canadian Rockies, but Pennsylvania?

After Secretary of State Hillary Clinton's pathetic responses to the Senate and House ("Clinton grilled on Benghazi," Jan. 24), let's be honest that we don't have al-Qaida on the run (as President Barack Obama claimed during the recent campaign; although, of course, he misses many daily intelligence reports). Al-Qaida will be all over Afghanistan as soon as we leave, is strong in Iraq, and is running rampant in Yemen, Mali, Libya, Algeria, and I'm sure other nations (Sudan and Somalia, perhaps)

NEW YORK -- A three-alarm fire swept through a wooden home in the Bronx, killing eight children and one adult and injuring at least 17. It was the city's deadliest residential blaze in decades, said Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg. Firefighters responded quickly to the fire, which started about 11 p.m. Wednesday, blocks from Yankee Stadium. By then, the bodies of several children and one adult were lying on the ground, officials said. Minutes earlier, neighbors had tried to catch two children who had been dropped from upper windows of the three-story structure by their mother, who then jumped.
