Apple to unveil new iPhones, revamped iPads and more
Apple's events are pompous, neurotically controlled celebrations of capitalist extraction, but it's hard to deny their importance. Chief executive Tim Cook said the third-quarter results were driven by continued strong sales of iPhones, services and wearables.

WNV is a disease that is spread by the bite of an infected mosquito.

Dusk & Dawn: Limit outdoor activities during dusk and dawn when mosquitoes are most active. Rain gutters, drains, unused flower pots, and bird baths should be checked for standing water.

People with animals should flush out water troughs at least once a week during the summer months to reduce mosquitos near paddock areas, according to the statement.

More information, including all WNV and EEE positive results, can be found on the Arbovirus Surveillance Information web page at www.mass.gov/dph/mosquito or by calling the DPH Epidemiology Program at 617-983-6800.
