In case you missed it: veterans in rural areas, mosquitoes and climate change
The Department of Veterans Affairs is struggling and often failing to do right by the many veterans with serious combat injuries who need closely supervised care but live in remote areas, a Globe review has found, Charles Sennott writes in Sunday's Globe. Realigned in the 1990s to concentrate specialized care in urban areas, the system now finds itself overwhelmed by the wounded from wars in Iraq and Afghanistan -- engagements that have, even more than other modern-day conflicts, been fought by soldiers from rural America.
Along with Canadian red squirrels and European blackcap birds, the mosquito -- a non biting variety found from Florida to Canada -- is one of only five known species that scientists say have already evolved because of global warming, Beth Daley writes in the Sunday Globe, the fourth in a series of occasional articles examining climate change, its effects, and possible solutions.
