It's not summer yet, but it's never too early to check out a list of the world's most popular amusement parks. Here's what else you need to know to Get Up to Speed and Out the Door. (You can also get "5 Things You Need to Know Today" delivered to your inbox daily. Sign up here.)

1. US and China

Is China trying to sidestep a battle royale with the US over trade? Beijing has pitched boosting Chinese purchases of US goods by about $200 billion during the current trade talks going on in Washington, say US officials. It would be an attempt to fix the huge trade imbalance between the two countries. But it's just a proposal at this point, and earlier this morning China's foreign ministry called the $200 billion number an "untrue rumor." Plus, experts say, it would be really difficult for China to buy that much stuff anyway. Last year, China bought $130 billion worth of American goods. Trade talks between the countries continue today.

2. Ebola

The World Health Organization raised the Ebola health risk for the Democratic Republic of Congo to "very high." This comes after the first case of the disease in this current outbreak was detected in a major city. Ebola is now in Mbandaka, a city of nearly 1.2 million people. The spread of the virus from rural areas into a city has raised fears it could quickly spread and become harder to control. While the WHO raised the national public health risk to "very high," it said the global risk level is "currently low." The country's health ministry reports 25 deaths so far in this latest outbreak.

3. Cambridge Analytica

The company at the center of the Facebook data sharing scandal filed for Chapter 7 bankruptcy yesterday. The data firm, which worked on Donald Trump's 2016 campaign, was accused of misusing the personal Facebook data of millions of people. And a whistleblower claimed former Trump political adviser Steve Bannon used Cambridge Analytica to try to suppress the black vote in 2016. Controversy around the company's alleged misuse of Facebook data raised a host of new questions about the social media giant's role in elections.

4. Hawaii volcanoes

The Big Island's Kilauea volcano spit out ash and smoke 30,000 feet into the air, prompting state officials to hand out almost 18,000 masks to help residents deal with the fallout. Thursday's volcanic activity was not the major eruption that scientists warn could happen at any time. And now Kilauea is not the only volcano they're worried about. Scientists are also keeping a close eye on Mauna Loa, with the United States Geological Survey saying the potential threat level from that volcano is "very high."

5. US birth rates

The number of births in the US last year was the lowest in three decades. A new report from the National Center for Health Statistics estimates that 3.8 million babies were born in the US in 2017. The birth rate was below "the level at which a given generation can replace itself" when deaths are also taken into account, the report says. Birthrates were down for women of all ages -- except those in their early 40s. The decline is believed to be tied to better access to contraception, the late-2000s economic recession and people holding off on marriage.
