Infant Walker-Related Injuries in the United States (study published in Pediatrics, Oct. 2018) – Finds more than 230,000 children under 15 months old were treated in U.S. emergency departments for injuries related to baby walkers from 1990 through 2014.
In fact: Baby walkers are banned in Canada!
Under the Canada Consumer Product Safety Act (2004), Canadians are not allowed to manufacture, import, advertise or sell baby walkers. Canada is the first country to have such a law against them.

Microsoft's big Windows 10 Update version 1809 is here and it brings a wealth of welcome features... But (isn't there always a "but?") it's also causing a serious problem. One that can't be reversed. If you're not enthusiastic about potentially losing every scrap of data in your user folder such as music, photos and documents, please read on.
Washington Department of Fish & Wildlife posted:
Here it is. First razor clam dig of the season. Happy digging!
First razor clam dig of season set for Oct. 11-13
