COMMUNITY: The Cemetery Angel | Watch Video
When the AIDS crisis hit in the 1980s, Ruth Coker Burks – who'd inherited 262 plots in a family cemetery in Hot Springs, Arkansas – became a mother of sorts to countless sons, many abandoned by families and churches because they were suffering from what was called "the gay cancer." Coker Burks became a one-woman AIDS help center: driving patients to appointments, trying to find doctors, drugs, or filling-out death certificates. And in many cases she gave them a final resting place. Seth Doane reports on the woman who has been called "The Cemetery Angel," who gave – and received – so many precious gifts.

MOVIES: Anthony Hopkins and Jonathan Pryce on playing "The Two Popes" | Watch Video
In 2013 the unthinkable happened: a pope resigned, and another became head of the Vatican. For the first time in six centuries, the Catholic Church had two popes. The new film "The Two Popes" imagines what conversations between 85-year-old Pope Benedict (played by Sir Anthony Hopkins) and Pope Francis (played by Jonathan Pryce) would have sounded like – and since both pontiffs disagreed on most everything, not all of that conversation is polite. Correspondent Tracy Smith talked with Hopkins and Pryce about their star-making movies, faith, and friendship.

COVER STORY:  You are what you eat? How nutrition may affect brain health | Watch Video
A key element in brain health is nutrition, say researchers who believe the number one factor that you have control over in terms of your mental health is at the end of your fork. Susan Spencer talks with Dr. Drew Ramsey, a psychiatrist who "prescribes" a healthier diet in order to combat depression; Samantha Elkrief, a trained chef and wellness coach; and neuroscientist Lisa Mosconi, for whom brain scans reveal the differences in brain structure between those who eat a Mediterranean diet and those who consume standard Western fare.

DINING OUT: Food halls: Redesigning the dining experience | Watch Video
When Americans actually left their houses to shop, food courts would sate their appetites at shopping malls. But now, with brick-and-mortar retail stores closing, food halls, offering a wide variety of ethnic cuisines and non-corporate dining choices, have become destinations in themselves, with hundreds opening up around the country. Faith Salie looks at the changing face of dining, as former industrial spaces, a shuttered race track, and even shipping containers are being refitted into food stalls. A world of flavors under one roof.

FRUITS:  Breadfruit: Rediscovering the tropical fruit | Watch Video
Typically green and scaly on the outside, white and smooth like squash on the inside, breadfruit is a starchy member of the fig family that's similar in taste to a potato, and smells like fresh baked bread when cooked. But you're not likely to come across it in most American grocery stores. Conor Knighton explores the history of breadfruit, a "canoe plant" first brought to Hawaii centuries ago by Polynesian explorers, and which today is used in everything from tacos and stews, to pizza, bagels, and even vodka.

At the Akal truck stop in Laramie, Wyoming, the Indian food that Mintu Pandher and his staff are cooking up in a small kitchen attracts truckers and locals from miles around, with food they can't find anywhere else along Interstate 80.

COVER STORY:  With deepest sympathy: The complications of coping with grief | Watch Video
Dealing with death is simply part of living life, as every person who dies leaves behind loved ones who must face a grieving process. And while most of us eventually adapt to a "new normal," one in 10 endures what researchers calls "complicated grief." For them the acute phase of grief never lets up. Susan Spencer investigates the study of grief, and how a website, Modern Loss, is sharing personal stories of grief, loss and coping from around the world, sometimes with unexp
