CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. - In one of the most harrowing spacewalks in decades, an astronaut had to rush back into the International Space Station on Tuesday after a mysterious water leak inside his helmet robbed him of the ability to speak or hear and could have caused him to choke or even drown. Italian Luca Parmitano was reported to be fine after the dangerous episode, which might have been caused by a leak in the cooling system of his suit. His spacewalking partner, American Christopher Cassidy, had to help him inside after NASA quickly aborted the spacewalk.

Jenkintown junior Jessica Hollinshead had her appeal to play field hockey wearing a hard helmet denied by the Pennsylvania Interscholastic Athletic Association's Board of Control. Hollinshead had a hearing before the board Thursday and formally submitted her request. Jenkintown principal Tom Sebastian, who made the presentation on behalf of Hollinshead, was notified yesterday that the board had voted, 7-5, not to allow Hollinshead to play wearing the hard helmet.

It's not rock. It's not metal, or even thrash. Just call it Helmet and cover your head. Proving that music-industry hype is sometimes justified, Helmet - the hardest, heaviest-playing band of the moment - slayed a sold-out Trocadero Thursday with ultra-distorted guitars and dizzying rhythm structures. The New York City foursome played like a mini-orchestra - an avant-grunge quartet, one might say - churning out 15 songs in an hour-long sonic assault. Helmet reportedly conducts rehearsals like boot-camp drills, and its live show was surely a practice in mesmerizing precision.

Before long, the hottest accessory on the ski slopes will be a helmet. Even before the deaths of Michael Kennedy and Sonny Bono - both of whom died by skiing into trees and suffering severe head trauma - resorts were seeing more skiers in helmets. Now, those numbers are expected to skyrocket, which is just fine with Dr. Craig Perrinjaquet, who heads the medical center at the Breckenridge, Colo., ski resort. "We can fix knees. We can fix thumbs," Perrinjaquet said. "We can't fix brains.

Temple defensive tackle Levi Brown doesn't recall much about the concussion he suffered in 2010. He does, however, remember the resulting headache. "It was awful," Brown said. He also remembers something else. "It cost me a game because I had to sit out the next week," said the 6-foot-2, 300-pounder, a fifth-year senior. "At the time, that was my biggest concern. But concussions have become a huge issue. I think I look at [the concussion] a little different now than I did then.

Gary Busey, almost killed in a motorcycle accident just over two years ago, is trying to reconcile his distaste for helmets with firsthand knowledge that going bareheaded is dangerous. He's designing his own headgear. The actor, in Chattanooga last weekend to hype his first movie since the accident - My Heroes Have Always Been Cowboys - said his helmet would protect riders while giving the sensation that they're not wearing anything on their heads. "I don't remember four weeks of my life," he said.

Improved helmet design has helped reduce concussions in impact sports such as football and hockey, but it might be impossible to design a helmet that completely eliminates them, according to a panel of sports science professors outlining the latest findings. Helmets "certainly help to mitigate forces that are distributed by impact to the skull and the intracranial cavity and the brain," said Kevin Guskiewicz , a professor of sports science at North Carolina and an expert on football helmets.

DEAR ABBY: As a law-enforcement officer, I would like to comment on your reply to "Overprotective Mom. " I agree with your solution to have the boy who wouldn't wear his bike helmet because it was "uncool" visit a facility that treats people with traumatic brain injuries. However, you missed a golden opportunity to remind parents that they are the parents, and because they are responsible for their child's safety, they are in charge! What has happened to plain old "parenting"?

Mark Fitzpatrick was happily riding his two-wheeler with training wheels down the street with his big sister when Sgt. Larry Ruocco of the Waterford Township police pulled him over and gave him a ticket. But unlike many a grownup stopped by the police, Mark went away happy. The ticket that Ruocco gave Mark, 4, was a reward for wearing a bicycle helmet, as required by the state law that took effect July 1 for all children younger than 14. The special ticket was redeemable for a slice of pizza, soft ice cream or a round of miniature golf.

As the record-holder for the most interceptions in a season, Rayshaun Kizer has shown a knack for keeping his eyes on the ball in the Arena Football League. Now your eyes can see what his are seeing. In Sunday's game against the Iowa Barnstormers, the Soul defensive back plans to wear a helmet equipped with an impact-resistant, high-definition video camera. The television production crew will pop the memory card out of his helmet when he's on the sideline and run it to the broadcast booth for use in game coverage on ESPN2.

SINCE STEVE DOWNIE landed back in Philadelphia on Halloween in a trade for Max Talbot, he has played in virtually every role the Flyers have to offer. He has skated with Claude Giroux on the first line. He has shuffled through the third and fourth lines. He has played 9 minutes in some games and 18 minutes in others. One game, Downie is asked to play a shutdown role, another as a contributing scoring winger. He has spent 2 nights in a hospital nursing a vicious concussion, and has played through a forearm injury that decreased his productivity.

Greg Merril held a lacrosse helmet above his head Friday afternoon at the Convention Center. A crowd had gathered around his booth at the US Lacrosse National Convention, and the founder and CEO of Brain Sentry was explaining what would happen if he let it drop. Affixed to its rear, the helmet had a small impact sensor, made by his company, Brain Sentry. When the helmet registers the kind of shock powerful enough to cause a concussion - such as being dropped from a height - the device emits a strong red LED light visible from 30 yards away in bright sunlight.

CHICAGO AIN'T Adam Pardy's kind of town. The Winnipeg Jets defenseman was driven through a glass panel by Blackhawks forward Brandon Bollig toward the end of Wednesday night's game. The glass didn't break, but popped out and landed in the crowd. With that, both teams stormed the area and a scrum ensued with several players, including Pardy, leaning over the now glassless boards into the crowd . That's when the fun began. At some point a fan yanked Pardy's helmet off - and put it on!

A crackdown is coming to Collingswood this summer. It's going to go down like this: A person of interest approaches on a bicycle. Appears to be age 12. A police officer moves in quickly and issues the tween a ticket. What did the kid get nabbed for? Wearing a bike helmet. The ticket awards one free water ice. Starting Friday, when school lets out for summer, borough police officers will be on the lookout for youngsters 12 and under who are doing the right thing: wearing their helmets while they ride their bicycles or scooters or while they skateboard or skate.

LITTLE EGG HARBOR, N.J. - Opening Day had all the usual signs of a good time for youth baseball and softball for the Bay Shore Athletic Association here Saturday. The weather was nice - 50s and sunny - the mayor threw out the first pitch, teams raced onto the field for the opening ceremony, "Call Me Maybe" boomed from the loudspeakers, and volunteers grilled burgers and franks. But there was something extra this year: boxes full of free helmets, gloves, hats, cleats, and other equipment donated by a Harleysville, Pa., nonprofit that is helping youth leagues affected by Hurricane Sandy.

Drew McIlhenny doesn't talk much about the combat he faced in Iraq or the loss of five fellow Marines during his unit's deployment to Al Asad in 2006 and 2007. The Port Richmond man focuses on friendships with service buddies, his young family, and a new civilian job as a sheet metal worker. Bryan Hummel, a Marine reservist who lives in Erial, Camden County, also concentrates on a sheet metal career - made possible for him and McIlhenny by a national federally funded program, Helmets to Hardhats.
