3. "When Dem Depayso heard that kids across the Visayas in the central Philippines were having nightmares and difficulty focusing on their schoolwork because of vivid scary memories of Typhoon Haiyan, she decided to help."
4. Pope Francis has accepted the resignation of Bishop Howard James Hubbard, 75, from the pastoral governance of the Diocese of Albany, New York, and named Brooklyn, New York priest, Msgr.
