In this photograph taken Friday, Oct. 17, 2014, William Gluckman, president of FastER Urgent Care, poses for The Associated Press in his facility in Morris Plains, N.J. Word that a second Dallas nurse caught the ebola disease from a patient has put the spotlight on weak spots in the U.S. health care system. But it's not just hospital emergency rooms that are on the front lines, thousands of round-the-clock clinics across the country are also possible first points of contact _ though they are not equipped to treat such a serious illness nor do they have isolation units. The clinics are scrambling to prepare their staff while also trying to get the message out that anyone who suspects they may have the virus should go to the hospital _ not an urgent care facility.

FILE - In this Nov. 20, 2006, file photo, Jamie Masada, owner of the venerable Hollywood nightclub The Laugh Factory, speaks at the club in West Hollywood, Calif.

He knew it'd be a challenge to bring together people from across the world who dislike each other, and hope they will laugh at each other. And yet, that's what he's trying to do with what he calls the first Funniest Person in the World competition. (AP Photo/Matt Sayles, File)
