Two people buried hand in hand have shared a grave for 700 years, eternally entombed side by side. Since their discovery, researchers have believed the couple to be man and woman, but a new analysis suggests that the duo is, in fact, two biological males, spurring more questions than answers.Nicknamed the Lovers of Modena , the couple was first discovered in 2009 when archaeologists were excavating the Italian City of Modena. Poor preservation of the bones made it difficult to identify the sex of their owners at the time, but typical burial practices between the 4th and 6th centuries suggest that it was likely a man and woman intentionally buried together in a symbolic gesture of their eternal love.

Congo;s 10 month outbreak has been the second worst since Ebola, which causes fatal dehydration and organ failure in up to 90% of cases, first surfaced in 1976. There have been over 2,000 cases since August, and guerrilla violence has made it hard to contain, as attacks on medical centers have killed health workers and prompted agencies to suspend operations at times. A lack of public awareness has also been an obstacle. Mistaking the initial symptoms for malaria, communities often fail to isolate patients and handle still infectious corpses during traditional burials.The WHO said authorities had identified 112 people in Uganda who may have come into contact with Ebola, and quarantined some of them. Uganda 's science and drug agencies, looking to pre empt a large scale outbreak, also approved three new experimental treatments for the virus on June 18. But Uganda 's Health Minister said unofficial footpaths on the border with Congo -which people from both countries use regularly to visit family -will make containment difficult, and some Ugandan hospital workers say they lack the resources to tackle Ebola if it comes.
Though the backdrop is a pop hit that makes voguing mdash;and practitioners like dance prodigy Damon (Ryan Jamaal Swain) mdash;trendy downtown while fueling the community;s fantasies of stardom, the characters; lives outside the ballroom are strikingly unglamorous.

Both HIV positive and financially insecure, the pair is clearly haunted by the possibility of spending eternity in such a miserable place.In fact, even as she pins her hopes for the house on ballroom 's breakthrough, Blanca sinks deeper into denial about her declining health. Even her pal Judy, a quippy lesbian nurse (the great Sandra Bernhard, perfectly cast in a new role), has trouble convincing her to take free AZT pills bequeathed by wealthy white AIDS patients. Blanca keeps her spirits up with optimism about Damon 's new gig teaching outsiders to vogue, beautiful Angel 's (Indya Moore, who gives the season 's other standout performance) nascent modeling career and her own future in the nail art business.
