The Faith & Action Project will hold its inaugural event – a discussion about poverty with journalist and public media host Tavis Smiley, a native of Indiana; New York Times columnist David Brooks; and Leah Francis Gunning, the dean of faculty at CTS and the author of "Ferguson and Faith: Sparking Leadership and Awakening Community."
One in five Marion County residents lives in poverty, and among children, the rate is even higher – one in three. A new initiative called the Faith & Action Project aims to galvanize the faith community, nonprofits and government to fight poverty.

For Hoosier Lilly King, revenge was a dish best served golden. #rioolympics  
King's time of 1:04.93 set an Olympic record, as she gave the U.S. its first gold medal in 16 years in women's breaststroke.

The #craftbeer  movement has more and more Hoosier growers making long-term investments in growing #hops . 
Craft beer now makes up a quarter of the beer market in the U.S., which means brewers are eager for ways to stand out. For some, that means buying hops locally -- even in Indiana.

So far this year, nearly 3.2 million board feet of timber has been harvested on Indiana state forests.
Logging in Indiana's state forests is on the rise, upsetting some Hoosiers. But others defend the practice.
