Dry air in hotel rooms is endemic, but a moisture-adding mist can be as close as your water bottle and a USB connection. Yes, the USB water-bottle humidifier for which we've all been holding our breath is finally at hand. The device, 2.4 inches in diameter, rests over the top of a water bottle, replacing the cap. It can be screwed onto the top of compatible bottles (not included, so you'll have to experiment). A wicklike filter extends down into the water. Plug the included micro USB cable into your computer or other USB port, and the wick draws the water through the filter, converting it into vapor.

Safety regulators yesterday announced voluntary product recalls of Dannon water bottles and of Simon & Schuster board books that may pose a safety hazard for young children. About 3.2 million bottles of water with push-pull caps were recalled because the drinking spout can come off unexpectedly, the Consumer Product Safety Commission said in a statement. Ten complaints have been filed about the spouts, but no injuries have been reported, the commission said. The water was sold singly and in multipacks in 8-ounce, 8.5-ounce and .33-liter sizes under the brand names Dannon Fluoride to Go, Pure American, Enon Springs, Alhambra Junior Sport Drinking Water, and Sparkletts Junior Sport Drinking Water.

It was late at night in the spring of 2009. A new water bottle, and a new social venture, were about to be born. Jay Parekh and Aakash Mathur, both seniors at the University of Pennsylvania, met in the basement of a study hall to come up with a plan for a Dell social-innovation competition. The deadline was just hours away. Parekh was an engineering student who, as president of the campus chapter of Engineers Without Borders, had worked on rural water projects in Cameroon and Honduras.

IF AAKASH MATHUR, 25, of South Philadelphia, has his way, the bottled-water industry could become obsolete. He's chief executive of Hydros Bottle, which manufactures and sells a water bottle that uses a "fast-flo" technology to filter water in 20 seconds. Mathur, a Wharton graduate, and co-founders Jay Parekh and Winston Ibrahim started Hydros, which is headquartered on the ground floor of Marketplace Design Center at 23rd and Market, in 2009 in the basement of a University of Pennsylvania study hall.

He got squirted, and then he got socked. Chris Falcone, 36, a Havertown concrete worker who mixed it up Thursday night with Tie Domi of the Toronto Maple Leafs in the penalty box at a Flyers game, said it was all a big mistake. Early in the game's third period, Domi was sent to the penalty box for roughing. Falcone, who was seated two rows behind the box, said fans began taunting Domi. The player responded by reaching over the glass partition with a water bottle and spraying the fans.

ABOUT AN HOUR after Sunday's game, three players remained in the Eagles' locker room. One of them was Carson Wentz. The giant media flood had trickled away. A few equipment guys were packing stuff into bags. Wentz walked around, drained a blue Gatorade, paced some more, grabbed a water bottle out of the cooler, then ambled over to where the offensive linemen dress, near the showers and the restroom, and leaned against a doorframe. Didn't the Eagles' rookie quarterback have anywhere to go, after authoring a 29-10 victory over the Cleveland Browns in his first NFL start, and sending half the Delaware Valley out to the mall to look for No. 11 jerseys?

Remember when a water bottle was just a bottle of water, its sole job to hold that water, ideally in partnership with a leakproof cap? Today, the water bottle biz is awash with newfangled vessels flashing features competing for your mouth and money. Which brings us to the big, bright BPA-free hard plastic "hydration" bottles from Fifty Strong. Among the 10 specialized styles, a standout is the 30-ounce Gym Bottle, which has a pink or green rubber sleeve with an integrated credit-card-size pocket that stretches just enough to discretely hold some cash, a key, an ID. The airtight screw-on top comes with either a swivel-up plastic sip nozzle or a wider flip-open "chug" cap. Then there's the Tornado Mixer, which comes with a spiral hard plastic insert designed to create a "cyclonic mixing action" for protein powders, meal replacement shakes, and water flavorings when shaken.

The Norfolk Admirals scored two third-period goals to sink the Phantoms, 3-1, last night at the Scope in Game 3 of their best-of-seven AHL playoff series. The Phantoms hold a two-games-to-one lead in the East Division semifinals. Their big offensive guns went silent as forward Josh Gratton, better known for penalty minutes than points, provided the team's only goal. Gratton tallied his first career playoff goal 7 minutes, 11 seconds into the first period. The teams will meet tomorrow night in Norfolk.

At the first citywide roundtable on schools, students outlined a litany of problems: a lack of resources, cuts to art and music programs, violence inside and outside some schools, and a systemwide lack of access to clean, safe drinking water. "We come from different schools, but we share the same issues," Morgan Bacon, a student at Masterman High School, told city officials and School Reform Commission Chair Marjorie Neff during the session in City Hall. The event, which was organized by several City Council members and Mayor Kenney's Office of Education, drew dozens of students from individual schools, as well as those involved with activist organizations such as the Philadelphia Student Union and Youth United for Change.

ON SATURDAY, Browns quarterback Johnny Manziel got more attention for throwing one water bottle than he did from any of his 35 passes in the NFL last season. Manziel was in his home state of Texas attending the Byron Nelson Classic when he was involved in an incident in which he allegedly threw a water bottle at a heckling fan. According to several reports, the former Texas A&M star, a first-round draft choice in 2014, was harassed by an 18-year-old male near the hotel pool of the TPC Four Seasons Resort in Irving, where the tournament was held.

A few coaches with Camden's Whitman Park Tigers youth football program were sitting around after a recent meeting, watching a news story about the water-contamination crisis in Flint, Mich., when they had an idea. "We said, 'We've got to do something,' " coach Jai Green said. "We don't have much - but we better give what we have. " On Thursday, the team is launching a drive to collect 100,000 bottles of water - 4,200 cases - to donate to residents of Flint. The drive will run through Feb. 29, Green said, and involve participation from players, coaches, parents, and sponsors.

Want to know what I got for Christmas? Tularemia. Don't know what that is? Allow me to explain. Rewind to a few days before Christmas, when Daughter Francesca came home for the holidays and was about to build us a fire, so I got in the car to go buy firewood since we didn't have any split logs. I may be hardy, but I don't know how to split logs. I'm not a lumberjack, I just dress like one. So I hop in the car and take off to the store, but I'm thirsty, plus I have a canker sore, which considering my pain threshold, feels like childbirth.

Erik Garcia said he would not do the menial tasks of professional boxing - the water bottle squirting, glove lacing, hand wrapping, and tape cutting - for anyone else. The 28-year-old has worked the corner of his younger brother, Juniata Park's Danny Garcia, since he started boxing at the Harrowgate Boxing Club. Danny Garcia (28-0, 16 knockouts) will have his brother with him Saturday night when the light-welterweight champion fights Rod Salka (19-3, three KOs) in a 10-round nontitle fight at Brooklyn's Barclays Center.
