Though not a serious threat to one's health, bites from fleas, mosquitoes and chiggers are definitely a nuisance. One way to minimize such bites is to take Vitamin B-1, says Dr. John Green of the University of Rochester Medical Center. "Vitamin B-1 is excreted from the body's sweat glands and causes an odor that is imperceptible to humans but disagreeable and offensive to insects," he said.

Authorities in Philadelphia will suspend foreclosure sales of homes whose owners have fallen behind on adjustable-rate sub-prime loan payments -- potential relief for tens of thousands of struggling debtors. The Philadelphia City Council on Thursday called on Sheriff John Green to stop the sales to give borrowers more time to seek a settlement that would prevent them from losing their homes. Philadelphia becomes the first U.S. city to halt foreclosure sales in the current crisis, although Cleveland and Baltimore are considering similar measures, said ACORN, an advocacy group for low-income families.

Californians, long known for their propensity to buck convention, have apparently done it again: A national survey released Monday revealed that they are less religious and less certain about the existence of God than the nation as a whole. Residents of the Golden State do not pray as much as people in other parts of the country. They are less inclined to take scripture literally. And they are likelier to embrace "more than one true way" of interpreting their religious teachings.

TUCSON - As the Dodgers prepared to play a charity game Thursday in remembrance of a young shooting victim, Manager Don Mattingly said he favored a ban on assault rifles. Mattingly was initially reluctant to talk about gun control. “Politics now?” Mattingly asked. “I don't know if I really want to get into it. I'm just not a gun guy. I never hunted as a kid. So I'm not much for the topic. I know we have coaches who love them; they think it'd be crazy if they weren't allowed to have them.” But Mattingly soon found himself talking about assault weapons.

His wife, Patricia, said the 60-year veteran of the music business, who produced Sarah Vaughan's first records and later broadened the appeal of Dizzie Gillespie and Duke Ellington, was 79 when he died of the complications of a stroke at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center.
