Microsoft announce four new Xbox One S bundles
With Backward Compatibility, Xbox One is the only console where you can play games from the past, present and future. If you store your games on an external hard drive, expect that drive to work well with the Xbox One X.

West Nile is a virus most commonly spread to people by mosquito bites. There are no vaccines to prevent or medications to treat WNV. About 1 in 5 people who are infected develop a fever and other symptoms. "Mosquito season in OH lasts until the first freeze which is not usually until mid-October". "The evenings are cooler and folks may want to sit outside, but it is very important that they take personal precautions to avoid mosquito bites because the viral activity is continuing".

Use a mosquito repellent with an EPA-registered ingredient such as DEET while you are outdoors.

· Wear light-colored clothing, which is less attractive to mosquitoes.

· Install or fix screens on windows and doors to keep mosquitoes out of your home.
