15, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Creating beautiful rosaries has been a life’s work and passion for author Kathy O’Neil’s beloved father-in-law, known by the family as “Granddad.” A World War II veteran who flew in 50 missions over the English Channel in the belly turret of B-17 bombers with his last mission just two days before D-day, Granddad is a devoted Catholic who always has the rosary with him and recalls that he wore out his rosary beads on those air missions. Granddad never imagined that his daughter-in-law would be inspired to write a children’s book explaining the importance of praying the rosary. Just released, “A Children’s Rosary” (Brown Books Kids) by author Kathy O’Neil and illustrated by Cynthia Meadows, gives children and parents a special way to spend time reading and praying together while opening their hearts to Mary’s great love.

Major provisions of veterans health care law – DC News FOX 5 DC WTTG

Done New Brazil law shores up domestic workers’ rights New Brazil law shores up domestic workers’ rights; opens door to employer fines 2 hours ago Content preferences Done RIO DE JANEIRO (AP) — A new law in Brazil provides fines against employers who fail to legally register their domestic workers.

Maids, nannies, cooks, gardeners and caretakers were long excluded from the South American nation’s stringent labor laws, which are similar to labor codes in some European countries. The law that went into effect on Thursday is aimed at shoring up last year’s so-called “Domestic Workers’ Law,” which capped the workweek at 44 hours.
