State of New Jersey Issues Mandatory Quarantine Order for Dr. Nancy Snyderman and Crew | Planet Princeton

The New Jersey Health Department has issued a mandatory quarantine order for Dr. Nancy Snyderman and the other members of an NBC crew who were exposed to a cameraman with Ebola. The mandatory order was issued after a voluntary 21-day isolation agreement was violated.

A spokeswoman for the state health department told the The Associated Press that Snyderman and her crew remains symptom-free and that there is no reason for concern of exposure to the deadly virus to the community. Citing privacy concerns, the spokeswoman would not give further details, including who violated the agreement and how the state learned of a violation.

Executive Order on “Natural Resources Defense Preparedness” | Volokh Conspiracy

And in a counterpoint of sanity we read this at Volokh, referencing Ed Morrissey at HotAir:

Some corners of the internet were abuzz this weekend over a new Executive Order signed by President Obama on Friday concerning “Natural Resources Defense Preparedness NDRP” The EO, which seeks to ensure the country has “an industrial and technological base capable of meeting national defense requirements and capable of contributing to the technological superiority of its national defense equipment in peacetime and in times of national emergency,” is the stuff of which conspiracy theories are made.

Yet there’s no there there.  The EO is simply an update of prior orders on the same subject going back decades to, among other things, account for changes in the cabinet and the like. if this is a presidential power grab — and I don’t believe it is — the power was grabbed decades ago.
