Mosquitoes mostly rely on their keen sense of smell to identify their favorite food source: People.

If you aren’t already aware, and you don’t happen to have the smelling capabilities of a mosquito, the things you eat can greatly affect the chemicals you release and, therefore, your scent. Some of the fragrances created by your diet are unappealing to mosquitoes or otherwise mask your natural aroma.

Mosquito repellent foods can make it more difficult for mosquitoes to find and feast upon you. Below are some quick and easy methods to keep mosquitoes at bay, without having to cover yourself head-to-toe in unappealing chemicals.

Worry Less About Crumbling Roads, More About Crumbling Libraries

Leave a comment

.

Every four years, the American Society for Civil Engineers issues grades for the nation’s infrastructure. In the most recent evaluation, released in 2017, America’s overall infrastructure score was a D+, the same as in 2013. Although seven systems, including hazardous waste and levees, received modestly better grades than in the previous assessment, transit and solid waste, among others, did worse. Aviation (D), roads (D), drinking water (D), and energy (D+), retained their miserably low scores.

The ASCE does not grade our “social infrastructure.” If it did, the scores would be equally shameful. For decades, we’ve neglected the shared spaces that shape our interactions. The consequences of that neglect may be less visible than crumbling bridges and ports, but they’re no less dire.

Social infrastructure is not “social capital”— the concept commonly used to measure people’s relationships and networks—but the physical places that allow bonds to develop. When social infrastructure is robust, it fosters contact, mutual support, and collaboration among friends and neighbors; when degraded, it inhibits social activity, leaving families and individuals to fend for themselves. People forge ties in places that have healthy social infrastructures—not necessarily because they set out to build community, but because when people engage in sustained, recurrent interaction, particularly while doing things they enjoy, relationships—even across ethnic or political lines—inevitably grow.

Credit freezes are now free. Here’s why you might want one

.

Many experts agree that freezing your credit report is the strongest way to protect against identity theft.

Starting Friday, you’ll be able to do it free of charge.
.
In the wake of a massive data breach last year at Equifax that exposed personal information for about 148 million Americans, Congress amended the Fair Credit Reporting Act to require reporting agencies to freeze reports for no charge. Equifax is one of the three major credit reporting agencies in the United States.
.
Identity thieves can use information in your credit report to open credit cards and bank accounts, and take out loans.

The new iPhone is in stores. Here are 5 reasons to wait before buying one.

Hello there, savvy iPhone shopper. Ready for an upgrade? There are a few things you should know before emptying your wallet at the Apple store.

It’s an especially confusing moment: Apple will sell no fewer than eight iPhone models in 2018. But they haven’t all gone on sale yet — and there are reasons to hold off on the two most-expensive ones that hit stores on Friday: the $1,000 iPhone XS and $1,100 XS Max.

Wait, isn’t the new iPhone the best ever? Yes — Apple would be in serious trouble if it wasn’t. And I don’t have to tell you what makes an iPhone great: simple design, a great camera, software that mostly just works and free Apple support.

The secrets of ant sleep revealed

Leave a comment

.

Queen ants dozily dream, while worker ants are forced to get by taking power naps, the first study of the sleeping habits of ants has revealed.

Queen fire ants fall into relatively long, deep sleeps and kip for an average of nine hours every day.

By contrast, workers sleep just half as much and get to rest by taking hundreds of short power naps.

This division of rest may help explain why queens live for years, while worker ants typically only live for months.
