[h=2]Trump to deliver address on Islamic State<span style="color: Red;">*</span>[/h]A week after labeling<span style="color: Red;">*</span>Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama<span style="color: Red;">*</span>"founders" of the Islamic State, Donald Trump will unveil his plan for defeating the terrorist organization Monday in Ohio. The GOP nominee will claim in his speech that de-stabilization in Syria and Libya fueled the group's growth, Trump adviser and Arizona Sen. Jeff Sessions told ABC.<span style="color: Red;">*</span>Trump last year claimed that he had "foolproof" plan for defeating the Islamic State that he couldn't reveal.

[h=2]Study: Most parents put infants in unsafe sleep positions[/h]Most parents put their slumbering infants in unsafe sleep environments, according to a new study that is the first to use video recordings to analyze parent behavior. The American Academy of Pediatrics report released Monday suggests<span style="color: Red;">*</span>the vast majority of parents put children at risk by positioning infants on their sides or stomachs, using soft sleep surfaces or loose bedding or sharing a bed with a parent,<span style="color: Red;">*</span>all of which are associated with an increased risk of death. Sleep-related infant deaths are the most common cause of death for babies between one month and one year of age, according to the U.S. government.
