    Residents near a Hougang HDB block (Singapore) witnessed a nerve-wracking sight — a child standing on the window ledge of a flat — on Sunday (Jan 3) morning. Fortunately, the child was later rescued by a worker in a boom lift. In a video clip circulating on social media, the child is seen standing on the ledge outside a flat on the third floor, with both hands grabbing onto the laundry poles above them. A worker approaches the child slowly in the crane, and then carries them off the ledge and onto the boom lift. The Singapore Civil Defence Force...

    Kids play dress-up. Boys and girls might slip into their mother's heels, and laugh as they try to awkwardly walk a few steps. They also might sneak into their mother's makeup and put lipstick all over their faces. The act of playing dress-up is so normal — many people probably have some story, whether it's pulling on your grandfather's old suit or throwing on a sparkly dress because it made you feel amazing, or maybe just made you laugh. And that's what the parents of nine-year-olds Queen Lactatia and Laddy Gaga, and 11-year-olds Bracken and Suzan Bee Anthony, say their...

    Fruity cargo cult Apple has been hit by another child labour scandal, this time involving its Pegatron supplier. The Financial Times discovered that Pegatron used thousands of student interns working overtime to assemble iPhones in breach of Chinese law. The Tame Apple Press has been doing its best to make Apple appear the good guy in the scandal saying that Jobs’ Mob had “reprimanded” Pegatron. After being contacted by the FT, Apple said it had stopped giving "new business" to Pegatron, its second-largest iPhone assembler after Foxconn. Strangely though, Pegatron does not appear to have received the memo and workers...

    The Federalist ^ | OCTOBER 14, 2020 | Evita Duffy
    Appearing at Monday’s virtual Mipcom marketing event, Netflix Chief Executive Ted Sarandos defended the child pornography film “Cuties” his company recently released, to massive backlash. The film has been charged with exploiting 11-year old girls, who are featured in highly sexual and suggestive scenes that include twerking, inappropriate clothing, and even nudity. State and federal officials have labeled the hyper-sexualization of young girls in the film criminal. It’s a little surprising in 2020 America that we’re having a discussion about censoring storytelling,” ... Sarandos claimed the film is simply “misunderstood” and if you just watch it, the movie “speaks for...

    News Observer ^ | 9/03/20 | Hayley Fowler
    Two years ago, a detective in North Carolina gained access to a chat group on the messenger app Kik where strangers were exchanging child pornography, according to court filings. The discovery and subsequent investigation reportedly saved eight children from sexually abusive situations. Now the first person police brought down in the investigation has been sentenced to prison. **SNIP** “Many of the offenders had taken significant steps to mask their identities,” prosecutors said in Wednesday’s news release. “The investigative team engaged these offenders online and tricked them into revealing personal identifying information.” At least 38 leads were sent to other law...

    A 4-year-old boy amazed his father when he nailed a hole-in-one at a golf course in Wheeling, West Virginia. Mario Figaretti and his son, Rocco, were at Oglebay’s Par 3 course when the young boy made the impressive shot. After Rocco hit the ball, it landed just short of the green and rolled directly into the hole. "Rocco, you just hit a hole-in-one!" the dad said. Figaretti said his son started practicing at age 3, and it's been fun watching his skills develop. "He practices all the time in the yard," he wrote on Facebook. "To say I’m proud would...

Winslow was arrested and charged in connection to the same incident, which occurred in the 600 block of Justison Street and went viral after a video of the exchange was posted on social media.

    Source: Mugshot of Darius Nathaniel Sessoms via Wilson Police Department We have a brutal crime in North Carolina, and if the races of those involved were reversed, this would be a national story. Instead, the victim is white. A five-year-old was shot in the head by a 25-year-old black man in front of his siblings as they played outside of their father’s house in Wilson, North Carolina.

    We knew from the very beginning that our child didn't fit the mould. Ryder preferred dresses and pink sparkly clothing from the moment he could crawl to the cupboard and pull out his own clothes. They belonged to his sister but he wanted to wear them and so he did. His sister wasn't impressed at first but as long as they weren't her favourite outfits, she soon adjusted. At three, he wanted to grow his hair out. He went to preschool with dresses and pigtails. When the other kids were confused, Ryder just shrugged. He didn't feel the need to...

    Stl Today ^ | 4/29/20 | Maurie Backman
    **SNIP** Normally, when you're behind on certain debts or obligations, like back taxes or federal student loan payments, you risk having your tax refund garnished. Under the CARES Act, you won't lose your stimulus payment for those same reasons -- but overdue child support is the one exception. If you're behind on child support, your relief check could be partially garnished or garnished in full, depending on the amount you owe. Here's even more bad news: If you file a joint tax return with your spouse, and your spouse is behind on child support, your entire stimulus payment could be...

    The Independence County circuit judge overseeing a paternity lawsuit involving Hunter Biden and an Arkansas woman on Monday accepted a temporary agreement on child support. Court documents show Biden has agreed to pay monthly support starting in February. He also will pay by March 1 retroactive support back to Nov. 1, 2018, and for plaintiff Lunden Alexis Roberts' legal fees. The amounts he will pay for each of these were redacted in online court documents. **SNIP** Monday's agreement does not dismiss the contempt motions, according to court documents. They will be dismissed if Biden provides all the documents the court...

    Hunter Biden is defying a court order to disclose his financial information as part of a child support fight while renting a $3.8 million designer home in Hollywood Hills, Los Angeles, for $12,000 per month. Biden and his new wife, Melissa Cohen, are getting use of a stunning, midcentury modern home for the price. The house’s owner, Shane Khoh, revealed the arrangement to the Washington Examiner on Wednesday. Khoh, a real estate investor, said he had no prior relationship with Biden or Cohen before they moved into the home last summer. “I don’t know them at all. I put it...
