Sebastian de la Cruz Sings National Anthem at NASL Soccer Game

Many will remember America’s Got Talent veteran, eleven-year-old Sebastien de la Cruz, when he was propelled to even greater fame during the 2013 NBA Finals after singing the National Anthem before Game 3 in San Antonio. After Sebastien appeared on TV singing the Star-Spangled Banner, a slew of insensitive and racist commentary followed on Twitter. Sebastien responded with integrity and a determination to not let those shallow comments affect him. Since that incident, young Sebastien has been booked solid to sing the National Anthem at sporting events all over. Follow the link below for images:

Vice President Biden Announces Ohio to Receive More Than $75.6 Million in Recovery Act Funds to Help Care for Children, Prevent Disease

Vice President Joe Biden announced that the Obama Administration will make $75,641,206 available to Ohio for crucial health and human services programs that help to provide care for children and prevent disease. Ohio will receive $68,140,840 in Recovery Act funding to support child care for working families. The Administration also plans to make $7,500,366 in vaccines and grants available to Ohio to ensure more underserved Americans receive the vaccines they need.

Nationwide, $2 billion in Recovery Act funds for the Child Care and Development Fund will allow states across the country to support child care services for more families whose children require care while they are working, seeking employment or receiving job training or education. The funds will be used by states to provide vouchers to families for child care or to provide access to care through contracts with child care centers or invest in quality improvements. Recovery Act dollars will support a wide range of child care providers, including child care centers and home-based programs.

“Parents are worried about finding a job or keeping the job they have and they shouldn’t have to worry about affording quality child care,” said Vice President Biden. “Safe, affordable, high-quality child care gives working parents the peace of mind they need to be stable, dependable employees.”

In addition to funding for child care programs, an additional $300 million in Recovery Act funding and grants will help to ensure more underserved Americans receive the vaccines they need. The Vice President’s announcement came as Americans mark National Public Health Week.

Funded by the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act, the majority of these new resources will be used to purchase vaccines, which will be distributed through the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s Section 317 immunization program to all 50 states, several large cities, and U.S. territories. Funding will also be used to support national public information campaigns regarding vaccines and support grants to states that demonstrate innovative new ways to ensure more Americans receive the vaccines they need.

“Vaccines help keep children healthy, prevent costly stays in hospitals, and fight diseases that can lead to serious illness or death” added Biden. “The Recovery Act will help to vaccinate more Americans, cut health care costs, improve public health, and save lives.”
