-- captions by vitac -- www.vitac.com oh, you've made it to sunday. i'm christi paul. >> and i'm victor blackwell. 6:00 on the east coast. >> we want to talk about a patient who has ebola. thomas eric duncan's condition seems to be getting worse. he's now listed in critical condition as the cdc monitors ten high-risk people who had close contact with him. >> we're confident none of those who had contact with him have symptoms related to ebola.
>> and the doctor who successfully fought ebola is back in the hospital after he showed up in the emergency room with a cough and fever, but doctors do not believe it's an ebola relapse, but they are still waiting on test results. >> with so much concern, the cdc quarantined more than 250 passengers on an international flight that arrived in new jersey after a man got sick. >> reporter: christi and victor, a scare where 250 passengers wee quarantined after another man who got health. he had been vomiting on flight 998 from brussels. the passengers onboard were held for more than 90 minutes after the plane landed about 12:15 on
saturday. officials from the centers for disease control assessed the man. it was a routine response to a sick passenger but an airport official told cnn that authorities were taking precautions because of heightened concerns about ebola. the port authority released little information about the sick passenger during the ordeal, only that he was a 35-year-old traveling with his daughter and was taken to a nearby university hospital but it declined to provide further information on where he had been traveling from. one man, henry costa said he was traveling from liberia. >> i talked with him before we boarded the flight. >> before passengers were free to leave the airport they were given a sheet of paper that described the signs and symptoms for ebola. passengers were concerned. >> it was quite scary but it would have been nice to get some information. >> reporter: definitely some relief after the health department ruled out ebola but it was a tense few hours for
those that boarded the plane. it certainly seems like business as usual at newark now but it definitely raises concerns for anyone flying. >> christina. thanks. one person who know as what those terrifying moments were like is richard burchette. he was sitting next to the sick passenger. he's on the phone with us from new jersey. richard, thanks for speaking with us this morning. walk us through what happened. this passenger nudged you and what did he say? >> at first it was kind of incoherence what he had to say so i asked him to repeat it and he asked for help, so i paged the flight attendant. when the flight attendant came, he described symptoms that his eyes felt like they were floating, hurting really bad, said he had never experienced that before. the flight attendant said what would you like me to do for you or is there something we can get or see if there's medical personnel available and he said, yes, yes, please do that.
>> was it obvious that he wasn't feeling well, richard? >> up until that point it was not obvious but then he had his face in his hands. obviously i had been watching an in-flight movie and had. paid attention to what he had been doing up until that point. >> at some point the flight attendants came and asked him where he was coming from and he said liberia. they walked away and came back with masks. >> yes. >> what was the reaction from the passengers. you've got a sick passenger traveling from liberia. >> no one else but the flight crew and myself were aware that that was the situation. they just knew there was someone sick on the plane. they came over the intercom and paged for a doctor if there were any doctors or nurses available
to please ring your call button, otherwise there were no announcements made. we still had more than an hour of the flight to go. no one else was aware than myself and the flight crew. >> so how were you feeling at that point? >> it was a little unnerving obviously. actually i was kind of nervous up until the point after we landed. i immediately googled on my smartphone and after reading some and how hard it is to contract ebola, me personally anyway, i was calmed considerably by some of the information that i found. >> so what happened once you got to the airport there in newark? >> so that's the little bit scary part to me and again the part i hope we learn from. once we landed at the airport, we were on the plane for about an hour and a half and eventually released after they had taken him off, but we entered the general population of the airport when we were
relea released and although everyone was saying we were quarantined, it depends on your definition of quarantine. quarantined, we were not allowed to leave the airport, yes, but many other passengers were interacting with us, we were all allowed to use the general bathrooms that flights were using, so we weren't really separated. so that's the concern to me. >> so your final thoughts, do you think the airline could have done everything they could have done, do you think there was an overreaction? >> i think the airline did a really nice job and flight attendants and crew were great. i just don't feel like the coordinated response -- and, again, i don't know if it should have been coordinated by the cdc or who, but it wasn't clear what to do once we arrived at the airport. there were several people giving directions and many times it was conflicting. really kind of general chaos and
i know the news reports say we were released after 90 minutes. we were on the plane for 90 minutes and released but the total ordeal was 4 1/2, 5 hours before we were allowed to leave the airport. >> wow. well, richard burchette, we're so glad you took the time to talk to us today. thank you again. >> you're welcome. >> best of luck to you. >> that's been the concern we've heard from so many people. the federal government says we know how to do this, we know how to execute this, but now this is another example that people who are in the midst of it say -- >> are questioning it. >> -- do you really need to know what you're doing. >> a pivotal point. a 21-year-old marine has become the conflict's first casualty. plus, duncan who has ebola

>> we haven't gotten an update. so far only thomas duncan has shown symptoms and the judge reiterated that point that he personally drove the four from that apartment complex to this temporary housing in dallas as sort of a way to ease public concern. a lot of people are very nervous, certainly very curious about what's going on here hchl e said he would never have put himself in jeopardy or done that if there was a risk to himself. he has an 8-year-old girl. he wouldn't bring it back to the family. i spent some time talking to locals and the opinions vary how some feel about ebola. some joking. some saying it's more serious than it's being reported in the media. the opinions really are various, but we are all watching thomas duncan, this first case diagnosed here in the united states and curious, i think, to how this will all turn out. victor, christi? >> nick valencia out side the

>> wow. >> impressive, right? number 25, tcu will also jump into that championship conversation after yesterday's huge game against oklahoma. now with the game tied in the fourth quarter, paul dawson intercepted the sooners' pass, took it 41 yards for the score. the extra one not so automatic. it's blocked and runs back for the very rare two-point play. the horned frogs knock off sooners with a 37-33 upset. get this, guys. a man takes sixes hours and 25 minutes but the nationgs giant 2-1. they saw the longest game in postseason history. sfrabs was left to rally in the ninth ining to tie the game and

eastern. it's been five weeks since hannah graham has vanished. a word from her parents. >> please, please, please help end this nightmare for us. help bring hannah home. thank you. >> investigators believe this man jesse mathew is the last man with hannah. he's charged with abduction with intent to defile. u.s. forces have confirmed the first death. corporal jordan l. spears of indiana dived out of his airplane when he thought it might crash over the persian gulf. they have not released the details. 21 years old. the incident is under investigation. here's what we know. on wednesday the aircraft lost power after takeoff and dropped toward the water.
two including spears exited. they were able to control it. the other were rescued but spears was never found. this weekend the government declared him dead. let's talk about this. lieutenant colonel, good to have you with us this morning. >> good morning. >> the pentagon has not classified spears' death. is that possibly because they don't want to release the detail os the mission or have they honestly not determined what the classification will be? >> i think they've honestly not determined it. they go through a whole process with it. but, you know, these kinds of accidents are not uncommon. that's a pri high-tech aircraft, relatively new in the inventory, and these things happen. when you're operating that many in these extended environments, this is going to happen. unfortunately we're going to see these kinds of deaths. >> you say that, that we're going to see these kinds of
deaths. what's the psychological impact that now we have the first military death related to the coalition effort against isis. >> you know, the military looks at this as, you know, one of these inevitable things. you plan to do your mission, you train, do the best you can, run through your emergency procedures, but unfortunately these things happen. they know the mission must go on and it's just a fact of life in the military. >> how about for civilians? >> the civilian contractors and the civilians in the military -- >> my question is the psychological impact for civilians. there was this overwhelming level of support for some type of strike against isis, air strikes, but now that an american serviceman has been lost in this, does this change, you believe, the support for the mission? >> i don't think it will change it much, but it does underscore the fact that this is not free.
there is a cost for this. there are young men and women in harm's way and they're going to suffer the consequences of that action and it's just -- i think people are now beginning to realize all of this is notster aisl notster i not sterile, not free. >> it reesd clearly that squadron and that ship were in the gulf supporting central command. some of the operations included operations in iraq and syria at least tangentially, through at least some tran jangential way, at sea. can you explain how this happens? >> when this happens everything stops and everyone goes into search mode. you have other aircraft outside
conducting their missions but everything that's in the vicinity of this -- this thing took off from the carrier, so they would be focused on that. and when they're conducting take-off and landing operations, they have helicopters standing by for just this eventuality. >> still waiting to get some more information but the first casualty, u.s. casualty in the military. corporal jordan spears. colonel rick francona, thanks for joining us this morning. >> you're welcome. the family of another hostage peter kassig released its own video asking its captors to show mercy and free him. >> we implore those who are holding you to show mercy and use their power to let you go. >> the 26-year-old went missing -- actually went to the middle east as a u.s. soldier, he

this is not airborne, and i think that that will help people to not have as great a fear. >> fear she's talking about. it's what's driving so much of our discussions, so much of our curiosity, isn't it, about the potential ebola virus. that was nancy writebol. she contracted ebola while working in liberia. later one will head back on a plane to liberia. shaun kaufman is the president of the biofirm, also was a member of the cdc's response team for the anthrax attack, the sars outbreak, and he was feeling very touched when you saw it, nancy, because you treated her, you said. >> absolutely. we were right there in the
isolation unit. i was watching out for her, got to know her two sons. it was an honor and privilege to be there with her. >> obviously a real connection as you watched her on the screen. obviously we have some things in front of us for a reason. let's talk about your trip back to liberia. what's your mission going to be? >> to train doctors and nurses and make sure when they're treating patients for ebola they're doing the right thing at the right time. typically their focus is so much on the patient and they don't have someone focusing on them, that's really my role to watch them that when they're doing something, touch something, we're making sure they're not taking the virus out of that area. >> how is the medical response process different in liberia than it is in the u.s.? >> oh, night and day. thing the united states is a very well resourced country. in liberia we're looking at issues with running water,
electricity, temperature control. it's very hot. and so when you're adding and putting on a lot of personal protective equipment, it's very difficult for you do maintain body temperature and be comfortable while you're working with the patients. >> okay. let's talk about some of the equipment you have here. he was actually talking about how this is different now even here in the u.s. with thomas duncan who has kind of degraded back to critical condition. what does that say to you if you went from stable to critical? >> what it typically means is when we say someone has ebola, we have to take a look at the stages of the disease. early onset disease means that the patient is fairly stable. they may have a fever. so there's different types of protection we can use. something that would protect our largest portal of entry, eyes, nose, mouth. this system is not something that's commonly used. it's what i'm going to use when we go out to liberia this time. >> this is not covered all the way around. >> no, it's not. >> this is an open mask. >> and so when the patient
becomes like duncan is -- and, again, my heart and prayers go out to him right now. when he's in critical condition it typically means he eepg going to be a fluid producer, vomit, diarrh diarrhea, bleeding out and that requires more protection from the medical staff. >> so they've moved from this with him? >> i would hopefully suggest they would be using something that offers their doctors and their nurses some protection. >> we can see how this is fully -- >> full, yeah. it's fully encapsulated which means if something happens at an unpredictable amount of time or fluid, the person is protekded. >> where does the coke bottle come from? >> believe it or not, after a lodge day of working with this and it is never-racking, coke is home. it really is. it's like after a long day, it's what bricks us home. >> so that's just kind of your -- >> that's my -- >> that -- to me, my glass of wine is your coke, is that it? >> it is.
so to remain vigilant in the field at all times, the coke takes us home. >> what do you expect when you get to liberia this time around? >> i expect it to be very busy. i think we're going to be training many doctors and nurses who are very scared. the work force there is not only heroic, but they just need a lot of information on how to protect themselves. i think it's going to be very busy. it's going to be very fast paced and i think it's going to be very beneficial. >> do you tlirng should be some sort of restriction in air travel right now? >> i hope not. west africa is in dire need of resources, and if you start looking at restriction of travel, to be quite honest with you, thing you may start pulling resources away and if we let this thing spiral out of control -- that's why the folks from west africa, these folks are heroes because if we can't stop it there it will spiral out of control and get worse in many places around the world. >> people had mentioned guinea and sierra leone there needs to
be some restrictionings but it hasn't happened next and you don't think it's necessary as well. >> i hope not. i hope not. >> thank you so much for being here and for all you're doing. >> thank you so much. >> a brave man here people would say. sean kaufman. victor? >> he's traveled all over the world, the next man you're going to hear from. but one place has been hard to gain access to until now. >> iran. finally. they're trying to get in this country five years now. it's been the big blank spot on my things to do list. >> anthony bourdain explains what he found shocking in iran and why you'll find this episode to be a little confusing and shocking yourself. g it himself starts with back pain... and a choice. take 4 advil in a day or just 2 aleve for all day relief.

he may be the most envied guy on the world traveling around the world eating all kinds of food in exotic places. his next stop is the bronx. earlier he told me a bit about what he discovered there. >> well, it's big, it's filled with good stuff, it's incredibly diverse, and it's the whole world in one borough of new york city and to my shame and embarrassment it's a town i know little about. i took a few small bites out of it for this episode and hope to take many more. >> so let's talk about another place you're visiting that is
timely as it relates to news. iran. was this your first visit to iran? >> first visit after many years of trying to film there. it's very difficult to get permissions. we had a deal with the sinister sounding ministry of guidance to get in, but once inside, the iran we found, i think, is going to be a big -- very confusing and surprising to people who only know iran from the newspaper and from television, from news reports, and from a. e owe political sense. looking at how ordinary people lead their lives and how they are to a foreigner, to an american, i think it will be very surprising. >> i read that you met with the "washington post" reporter jason row cyan who's being held, and
his wife on unknown charges. >> yeah. >> why did you decide to meet with them and why did you decide to get involved in a political situation in a city you visited? >> i think we were very careful to avoid that. we understood it's a very tricky, very delicate situation there, that the people who are hosting us and looking after us and showing us around and introducing us to food and talking about their culture, we do not want to put them into a bad situation. jason was someone -- and his wife yeganay, were both people who were very supportive of their country, proud of their country. jason is an iranian-american, his wife full iranian. they were very up on their country and, you know, talking about it as a place that should be better understood and hopefully better appreciated in the future. i think when we were there, we felt and i think a lot of people felt and hoped that things were opening up and that relations
between our countries were perhaps normalizing a little. now we see perhaps that that window -- that moment in time has ended. >> well, anthony bourdain, i have to say i don't spend every hour of my life in front of a television watching cnn, but your show i watch. it is beautifully shot. the cinematography is amazing. congratulations on all the awards and we'll be watching season four. thank you. >> thank you so much. it was fun. >> you can see the all new "anthony bourdain: parts unknown" right here on cnn tonight at 9:00 p.m. eastern. >> looking forward to that. ahead -- ♪ ♪ what side are you on justice for mike brown ♪ >> we'll tell you what this was all about next. i have the worst cold with this runny nose.

to critical. nick? >> good morning. we god the news yesterday that duncan had slipped from serious to critical condition. we don't know exactly the details of what the hospital is doing to treat duncan. we know that he's isolated. we know he's in intensive care and from past cases we know a lot of it has to do with hydration. part of these classic symptoms, fever, vomiting, diarrhea, checking the fluids of the patient, making sure they're hydrated. so we're asking the hospital to get the details to us, expecting an update later today, seeing if he's still critical. as far as we know, he is. victor, christi? >> do you know how officials are hand ling him? >> we know they started inside, worked their way out. boots on the ground. cdc here. they've got five in the hospital, five outside of the hospital. lots of interviews. talking to medical workers, people in the ambulance. there's been lots of inquiry as
well. yesterday there was a briefing. they talked about the sort of briefing across the country, possible ebola cases. dr. frieden, the cdc director, spoke about that yesterday. take a listen. >> we have already gotten well over 100 inquiries of possible patients. we've assessed every one of those with state and local health departments, health departments and hospitals and just this one patient has tested positive. >> reporter: a fear across the country. right now it's a critical period to check these nine who had direct contact with duncan. the incubation period being 1 days. this family of four, we know they're being checked on up until october 19th. right now a critical time to look at how they're doing to see if they're showing any signs. again, to reiterate from the county officials and federal officials. thomas duncan, he's the only person on american soil showing signs or symptoms of having
ebola. christi? >> thank you, nick. a 21-year-old marine is believed to be the first american casualty in the fight against isis. >> corporal jordan spears bailed out of an mv-22 plane like you see here. the pentagon now saying he is lost at sea. and the human rights group says a coalition killed at least 35 isis militants yesterday. they're pushing back against isis fighters in the keyboarder town of cubany. let's bring in phil black. he's on the turkish border. what have you seen in the last few hours? >> reporter: victor, christi, good morning. we want to show you the scene behind us. this is the city of cubany.
it is into that southeastern corner that we have witnessed a very constant artillery bombardment into cubany. we have seen it for several days, very heavy shelling. the contacts inside the city tell us around that corner on the southeast approach to city there are a number of isis tanks maneuvering, firing repeatedly. as i stand here as well, i can hear small arms fire in the distance coming from the south. you can see the hill just above cubany. everything we're hearing inside is telling us the main isis thrusts, the main attempts to take the city is coming from the south. they're trying to climb the southern side of that hill overlooking the city. so far, though, the kurdish fighters that are left behind in the city, both men and women as well as civilians who have taken up arms, we are told, have managed to hold them back, to not let them take that very strategic high ground there. >> phil, who has momentum here?
>> reporter: sorry, victor. repeat that, please. >> who has momentum. the kurdish fighters have been able to hold them off. does it seem they'll be successful or being aggressive and pushing them back? >> reporter: at the moment they've been successful at holding them off at that point. i don't believe they can hold them off indefinitely. in fact, the fighters inside say they're preparing for street fighting, urban warfare, house to house, street to street. they think they'll have a bit of an advantage because they know the streets so well but it is certainly approaching a showdown, we think. it is a very dire time for the fighters. they're running out of places to fall back to. >> phil black there at the turk eric syrian border just outside of cubany. phil, thank you so much. >> it will be frightening if that city falls.
if they take cubany it means they'll have taken 60 miles of territory in syria. it's really important to be watching that today. retired lieutenant kerj rick francona is a cnn analyst. let's talk about that, about how crucial the city of cubany is on the war in isis. >> it's a border town, a keyboarder crossing between syria and turking and it's one of the remaining kurdish holdouts there. once isis takes it and it appears that they're going to, they'll control almost that entire border region there. and as christi mentioned, they own now from iraq all the way up to the turkish border. that gives them yet more control. from there that allows them to be in position to push further to the west as they move toward aleppo, which is one of their main targets. they've been going after it for a long time. as phil said it doesn't appear the kurds are going to be able to hold that city. ire vastly outgunned and vastly outnumbered.
>> explain how this fight to push isis away from kubani and their advance toward the city will appear differently or advance differently than what weevz seen in iraq over the last several months. >> this appears to follow their standard modus operandi. they like to get to an area, surround it, choke it off, and then pound it with artillery. if they need to, they'll run a bunch of suicide bomber trucks inside, and then they'll take the city. what we have here is a unique situation where the border forms a northern edge of the town. so the kurdish population has been -- mostly has been able to escape into turkey. of course, that puts a lot of burden on the turks. but the city itself is almost empty. there's the kurdish fighters there. so it's a little bit different situation here. hopefully the kurds will be able to escape to turkey as well because you do not want to be a prisoner of isis. >> certainly not. let's get back to the death of corporal jordan l. spears, the
first military death fighting isis. spears is dead but the pentagon has not classified spears' death yet and why and do you know when they'll get that information. >> >> they'll do an investigation. they'll determine what kind of mission he was on, was he taking off to conduct operations in iraq. they were taking off from one of these amphibious assault ships. it's unclear what the action was. that might help determine if it with us a combat death or accident. what happened is the pilot was experiencing difficulty, he was afraid they might crash, so it's standard procedure to have your crew -- the nonessential crew bail out. and the pilot and co-pilot attempt to recover the aircraft, which they did. but this is standard procedure. they were standing by in case anything like this happens. as we say, these accidents unfortunately happen. >> in the search for corporate
spears, are the uniforms with b with the search? >> he probably would have nothing more than a life vest, but that would have a beacon on it, yeah. >> loon tent rick francona, thanks for helping us this morning. >> sure. the crowd is smaller but the anger is growing in hong kong over how the government is treating protesters. plus searchers are scouring in a new area in the hunt for missing flight 370.

temperature today. tomorrow 60 and tuesday at 66. so warming up nicely. across the southeast, much of the same story. a lot of places around 65, 70 degrees today. we'll be warming up to around 80 by tuesday. so a very fast rebound for much of the country. i want to touch on the west coast just a bit. that fire threat does remain high for today. santa ana still a problem. staying very, very hot here. no relief in sight. we are going to see temperatures stay warm today, however, gradually starting to taper off over the next couple of days. 86 today in l.a. 83 tomorrow, 81 on tuesday. things are getting a little bit better. we're also watching simon. this storm is going to continue to weaken as it bends to the north and east and then just being downgraded to a low most likely by friday. but this is going to bring even more moisture into areas that have seen so much rain, guys, including places like phoenix. we've seen major flooding

but now, with once-a-day xarelto®, jim's on the move. jim's doctor recommended xarelto®. like warfarin, xarelto® is proven effective to reduce afib-related stroke risk. but xarelto® is the first and only once-a-day prescription blood thinner for patients with afib not caused by a heart valve problem, that doesn't require regular blood monitoring. so jim's not tied to that monitoring routine. gps: proceed to the designated route. not today. for patients currently well managed on warfarin, there is limited information on how xarelto® and warfarin compare in reducing the risk of stroke. xarelto® is just one pill a day taken with the evening meal. plus, with no known dietary restrictions, jim can eat the healthy foods he likes. don't stop taking xarelto®, rivaroxaban, unless your doctor tells you to. while taking xarelto®, you may bruise more easily and it may take longer for bleeding to stop. xarelto® may increase your risk of bleeding if you take certain medicines. xarelto® can cause serious bleeding, and in rare cases, may be fatal.
get help right away if you develop unexpected bleeding, unusual bruising, or tingling. if you have had spinal anesthesia while on xarelto®, watch for back pain or any nerve or muscle related signs or symptoms. do not take xarelto® if you have an artificial heart valve or abnormal bleeding. tell your doctor before all planned medical or dental procedures. before starting xarelto®, tell your doctor about any conditions such as kidney, liver, or bleeding problems. jim changed his routine. ask your doctor about xarelto®. once-a-day xarelto® means no regular blood monitoring, no known dietary restrictions. for information and savings options, download the xarelto® patient center app, call 1-888-xarelto, or visit goxarelto.com.
whenwork with equity experts who work with regional experts that's when expertise happens. mfs. because there is no expertise without collaboration. cnn has a new original series that debuts this week. it's called "somebody's got to do it" with mike rowe and it profiles all kinds of heroes in jobs all across america. these are not necessarily undesirable gigs. listen. here's how mike rowe described it to me earlier. >> "somebody's got to do it" is a continuation of what i did ten years ago called "somebody's got to do it" where we weren't looking for the dirtier or nastier work so much rather than people who were afflicted or
driven to do what they do, whether they were inventors, entrepreneurs, waking up a little annoyed with the way the world is. >> we both have a connection to maryland and the chesapeake bay. there's an episode. i've been reading the episode guide this season in which it's featuring an oyster orgy. i don't know if i can say it in the morning. >> you just said it, twice. >> thank you. >> it's about the most poernlt estuary in the country and generates many, many millions of dollars for those who work on the bay and the people who come out of the bay, et cetera, et cetera. it's a huge part of the environment and the ecosystem and it's been in some degree of peril for the last 50, 60 years. one of the problems in the bay is the fact that the oyster population has been slowly
eroding over time. not so slowly, in fact. they've been overfished and they've suffered from all kinds of diseases and all kinds of problems. so there's a guy we met called mutt merritt. his whole life's purpose is to reinvigorate the oyster population in the chesapeake bay. to do that, he's embarked on this massive artificial insemination campaign that involves hundreds of oysters pulled out of the bay, put in these containers where they breed, and he creates these things called spats which he puts back into the bay. long story short, they're creating billions more oysters than they used to have. so essentially the oyster orgy is the way to tell a story about a guy who's dedicated his life to saving the bay and at the same time wrangle all the politics between the elected officials and the watermen and the consumers and the price of an oyster and a whole lot of
other stuff. it's a really fun look at the backyard i grew up in through a totally different lens. >> mike rowe, thanks for speaking with us. >> my pleasure. >> really looking forward to this one. catch the premiere of "somebody's got to do it" with mike rowe this wednesday night at 9:00 eastern right here on cnn. >> thank you. how much could you get done around the house in six hours? a lot, right? the giants and nationals couldn't get their baseball game done in six hours. the epic game that has everybody talking.

(announcer) ask your doctor about linzess-- a once-daily capsule for adults with ibs with constipation or chronic idiopathic constipation. linzess is thought to help calm pain-sensing nerves and accelerate bowel movements. it helps you proactively manage your symptoms.
do not give linzess to children under 6, and it should not be given to children 6 to 17. it may harm them. don't take linzess if you have a bowel blockage. get immediate help if you develop unusual or severe stomach pain especially with bloody or black stools the most common side effect is diarrhea, sometimes severe. if it's severe, stop taking linzess and call your doctor right away. other side effects include gas, stomach-area pain and swelling. bottom line, ask your doctor about linzess today. in the country. we operate just like a city, and that takes a lot of energy. we use natural gas throughout the airport - for heating the entire terminal, generating electricity on-site, and fueling hundreds of vehicles. we're very focused on reducing our environmental impact. and natural gas is a big part of that commitment.
