Stenhouse is an eighth grader at the Wheeler School in Providence. She dances ballet and enjoys art and creative writing at school.

Providence, RI – Many people who are remarkably successful in their public lives find themselves tormented by some kind of intense, nagging, private agony. Some succumb to this inner turmoil; others thrive as they discover a resolve they didn't know they had. Jeffrey Sparr tells us about his deeply personal struggles, and his inspiring triumph. Years ago Sparr started a textile business in Rhode Island, which he travels all over the world to run.

Providence, RI – Most of us have spent some time thinking about the origin of life as we've come to know it, the beauty of the forest, and the mysteries of the ocean.

Miller is professor of biology at Brown University.
