Headlines that confuse me, Part I.

Apes may be primary winners as Canada battles Ebola: The Globe and Mail online.

This article is about how "Great Apes could be among the early beneficiaries of groundbreaking work scientists from Canada's National Microbiology Laboratory are doing to develop a vaccine against the deadly Ebola virus."

But when it turned up in my RSS feed, I thought: Oh no! There's been an outbreak of Ebola in Canada and only the apes will survive!

I, perhaps, have been watching too much Celebrity Big Brother, which, if you are reading this is Canada, you may not know is a matter of the utmost importance to foreign relations here in the U.K.
