Lean In: Janice Ringler, student

I was born and raised in Hawaii, where I learned to appreciate and respect a diversity of cultures as a member of its thriving Asian American Pacific Islander (AAPI) community. Most of my classmates stayed in Hawaii for college or went to schools on the West Coast, but I decided to broaden my horizons by attending Purdue University in Indiana. While there, I discovered my ethnicity made me a rarity - a minority - which I had never experienced back home.

On Gardening: Beebalm species are a magnet for flying creatures

If you are into bees, butterflies and hummingbirds, then by all means put the monarda or beebalm species at the top of your must-plant list.

In home church, archbishop dons his symbol of office from Rome

CHICAGO - After a circle of white wool was placed around his shoulders to symbolize his role as shepherd of the local church, Chicago Archbishop Blase Cupich called the garment a constant reminder that he and his flock should reach out to those who are broken and suffering. Called a pallium, the garment has a rich history in the Catholic Church, and the ceremony took a different turn for Cupich and his congregation because of a decision by Pope Francis earlier this year to bestow the vestment in the archbishop's home church, not in Rome.
