Baby Kessel named after Penguins right winger Phil Kessel

  Baby Kessel named after Penguins right winger Phil Kessel Kessel Ryan Hillman was born on Mother's Day at Butler Memorial Hospital. His parents, Nicole and Adam Hillman, said they didn't know they were having a boy, but decided that if they did, he would be named after Pittsburgh Penguins right winger Phil Kessel. "The perfect name for our son," Adam Hillman said. Little Kessel was born while his father played "Let's Go Pens" in the delivery room, mother Nicole said. Nicole said after baby Kessel was born, they realized, it was meant to be. "Sure enough, they put me in bed No. 81," Nicole said, referring to Phil Kessel's jersey number. "He was born at 6:53 p.m. and the winning goal was scored at 6:55," Nicole said. That was a day later, but scored by none other than Phil Kessel. Baby Kessel's parents say their baby boy, already has a love for the game. "He loves listening to the hockey games. He definitely recognizes that as a sound as he has gone to the games before with me," Nicole said.

How America has changed since ‘Rosanne’ and what to know about fidget spinners . By Kari Paul. Published: May 18, 2017 5:36 p.m. ET. Here ’ s what you should do when markets are crumbling.

I’m of course talking about fidget spinners and fidget toys. In the recent month these little twiddle toys have exploded in popularity, they used to be one of those things only skillful DIYers could do, but If you’re looking to get the best, you’ve found it, here ’ s our top list of the fidget spinner in 2017.

Fidget spinners, the hottest new twirling gadget for kids, aren’t just driving teachers crazy — they may also be dangerous.

Kelly Rose Joniec, a mother in Texas, posted a cautionary tale on Facebook to other parents after her 10-year-old daughter reportedly choked on a piece of a fidget spinner on Sunday. Teachers have reported confiscating dozens of the toys a day as the toy has taken the nation by storm — and experts say the meteoric rise of the device could lead to lax safety practices.

Joniec said her daughter Britton was sent to the hospital after a piece of the spinner had apparently broken off the device after she put it inside her mouth to clean it. She was, Joniec reported, put under anesthesia so the doctor could perform an endoscopy, using internal tools to locate the bearing (about the size of a quarter) in her esophagus.

‘Legendary fear of missing out’: Millennials aren’t writing off the home ownership dream just yet

  ‘Legendary fear of missing out’: Millennials aren’t writing off the home ownership dream just yet Record real estate prices just may be making young Canadians more cautious — and even more creative — when it comes to buying in .A recent study suggested nearly 40 per cent of those between the ages of 18 and 34 think they’ll buy a home in the next two years, despite the high-profile concerns about overheating in both the Toronto and Vancouver markets.With the spring buying season now in full gear, the question many are asking is whether it’s time to jump in or hope housing cools off.

Here ' s the thing about being in your mid-twenties: You're a millennial, but not the good kind. You didn't grow up learning HTML code before you could speak, or whatever. Can a fidget spinner help? Now that I know I can trick someone into loving me, the world seems somewhat absurd, to tell you the truth.

Now you know what fidget spinners are all about, let’ s take a closer look at what fidget toy spinners there are on the market. Before going mainstream, fidget rings were being used by Tibetans. Should I Buy a Fidget Spinner or a Fidget Cube?

“The GI doctor was fascinated,” she wrote. “He’d only just learned of fidget spinners that morning when he was at the mall with his son, so it was a surprise to be faced with one in a case a few hours later.”

Toy industry experts say parents should be careful where they buy them. “When a toy craze like the spinners hit, you may be tempted to buy one for your kid on the corner when you see a street vendor has them, but the safety of products sold outside a reputable retailer cannot be verified,” Joan Lawrence, senior vice president of Standards & Regulatory Affairs at trade group for toy manufacturers and distributors the Toy Association, said.

She added parents should be sure to buy products from a reputable toy retailer that complies with strict U.S. safety standards, and as with all toys, make sure the product is age-appropriate, though many fidget spinners don’t have an age range on the packaging because they’re being sold by multiple companies on U.S. streets, and not always by toy stores.

And while some have age-appropriate warnings on these gadgets being sold at major toy stores, some are still prone to breaking. This fidget spinner sold online for just $6 clearly states it’s for use by people 12 years and up, and claims to relieve stress and anxiety. But the reviews were less-than-stellar. “Bought this for my son!” one reviewer wrote. “Not even one day and it broke! Wouldn’t buy again!” Another wrote, “The middle bottom and top pieces where you hold it from just broke apart.” Other higher-end variations on the spinner can cost as much as $190.

It isn’t the first time a fidget spinner has led to injury. One Australian mother reported that her son nearly lost his eye after tossing a fidget spinner in the air and being hit with it. The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission bans toys for children under three that have small parts under 2.25 inches long by 1.25 inches wide. With bearings around that size, fidget spinners would fit that description, but as Joniec found, even older children can be at risk.

“From this I wish to offer some word of caution to parents,” she wrote. “Fidget spinners are the current craze so they are widely distributed. Kids of all ages may be getting them, but not all spinners come with age-appropriate warnings. The bushings pop out easily, so if you have young kids (under 8 yr old) keep in mind that these present a potential choking hazard.”
