Today's Globe: Caritas deal, pioneer chemist

Cardinal Sean P. O'Malley and a tight circle of archdiocese leaders have made a tentative deal to transfer ownership of the six hospitals in the Caritas Christi Health Care system, including Caritas St. Elizabeth's Medical Center in Brighton, to the nation's largest Catholic hospital chain, St. Louis-based Ascension Health.

"Forgotten Genius" on NOVA tonight tells the story of Percy Julian, the black chemist whose work in the face of segregation led directly to the steroids that treat rheumatoid arthritis and indirectly to the birth control pill.
