TUESDAY, OCTOBER 21, 2014 POST REGISTER A 2 people talk NEW YORK (AP) — At 69, Bob Seger says he’s ready to hit the road again: He’s scaled back smoking and bicycles 10 miles a day as part of a workout routine. “I think I’m in pretty good shape,” Seger said in a phone inter- view, noting that a colonos- copy from a few years ago was clean and he just had a checkup for his tour to promote “Ride Out,” the album released last week and his first since 2006. The 25-city tour begins Nov. 19 in Saginaw, Mich., and continues into next year. Seger isn’t saying whether he’ll continue touring beyond that, though he definitely plans to continue creating music: “I just take it tour by tour.” He acknowledges that it is much tougher to get radio time for his music these days, and that the digital transformation has reshaped the industry. “It’s half the size it was 10 years ago.” ‘Buffy the Vampire Slayer’ actor arrested in Boise BOISE (AP) — An actor best known for his role in the tele- vision series “Buffy the Vampire Slayer” is apologizing for actions that led to his arrest in a hotel lobby in Boise.

NEW YORK (AP) — The quarantine against possible Ebola expo- sure ends this week for Dr. Nancy Snyderman , but the troubles clearly aren’t over for NBC News’ chief medical editor. An admitted lapse in the quarantine, combined with a curi- ously imprecise explanation, unleashed a furious response. NBC must now decide whether Snyderman’s credibility is too dam- aged for her to continue reporting on Ebola or other medical issues and, if so, for how long. The network had no comment. Snyderman covered the Ebola outbreak in West Africa and worked briefly with Ashoka Mukpo , the cameraman who caught the virus and is now being treated in Nebraska. Upon returning to the United States, Snyderman and her crew voluntarily agreed to quarantine themselves for 21 days. Yet New Jersey health officials ruled that her quarantine should be mandatory after Snyderman and her crew were spotted getting takeout food from a restaurant. today’s quiz Isaac Asimov’s Super Quiz SUPER QUIZ Subject: ANGELS (e.g., Term for a chief or prin- cipal angel.
