    BEAR, Del. (CBS) – A grand jury in New Castle County indicted 20-year-old Dejoynay Ferguson for the September 2019 murder of a 4-month-old after police say she suffocated the baby at the day care where she worked.

On Monday, Ferguson was indicted on a single count of murder by abuse or neglect, which replaced the original charge of first-degree murder and 42 counts of first-degree child abuse against the victim. Investigators say Ferguson placed her hands over the victim’s mouth and nose and intentionally restricted her breathing until she became unresponsive. She then placed the baby back in her crib. Police say about 20 minutes later, Ferguson alerted...
    Alexis Goldstein July 12, 2020 6:59PM (UTC) This article originally appeared on Truthout. Workers in the U.S. are staring down the precipice as lawmakers fail to address the economic ravages of the pandemic. Even as some 21 million people remain unemployed, the $600 per week in additional unemployment insurance created by Congress's coronavirus relief package, the CARES Act, is set to expire on July 31. Student debt payments will resume on October 1 for the 34 million federal student loan borrowers whose loans were suspended by CARES. But perhaps no cliff is as steep as the early care and education sector, which may be cut in halfby the time the pandemic is over. To save it, the sector will need an infusion of...
    The promise of the American Dream is supposed to be available to each and every citizen, regardless of personal circumstances. Essential to the pursuit of this dream is the love of family, in order navigate the trials and tribulations of adolescence and entry into adulthood. President Donald Trump, understanding the importance of a loving family, recently announced the issuance of an Executive Order that will enhance America’s child welfare system and promote permanency for children in the foster care system. Adoption is a special blessing. I should know. My husband John and I adopted our beautiful son Samuel, who has Down syndrome. I thank God every day for bringing my Samuel into our lives. The president wants to protect, and encourage, stories like ours....
    New York (CNN Business)Although it's still unclear whether schools will reopen in the fall, camps and day cares in many states are operating once again.That means many out-of-work parents could have a tougher time remaining on a special unemployment program designed to help those affected by the coronavirus outbreak. The pandemic unemployment assistance program, which Congress created in late March, allows parents to collect jobless benefits if their children's school closures left them unable to work. They didn't have to return to their jobs as long as their children couldn't return to class.But things are different now. Summer's here, and many governors have allowed camps and day cares to reopen. Typically, the unemployed can't turn down jobs and continue to...

    Amazon plans to subsidize 10 days of child care for all its workers, a move to make returning to work easier as the coronavirus pandemic continues. Employees will be able to access child care at a center for $25 per day, or in-home care for a child or adult for $5 an hour, Amazon said in a blog post on Tuesday. The perk is meant as a backup option in cases where a worker's existing arrangements fall through. "We've heard from our employees that access to affordable family care, for both children and adults, is particularly challenging during the COVID crisis and we are committed to support them in this unprecedented time," Beth Galetti, Amazon senior vice president of Human...
