I understand that the two colors of the year for 2016 chosen by Pantone are Rose Quartz and Serenity. These pastels of pink and blue are usually found in a baby or small child's room, but I like the calm, soft hues and was wondering where and how I might use them in the rest of my home.

Paul McCartney, who made his mark in the world in the 1960s as a Beatle, recently met two Little Rock women -- Thelma Mothershed Wair and Elizabeth Eckford -- who made their mark on the world in the previous decade. In 1957, the women were part of the Little Rock Nine, students who integrated Central High School in Little Rock. In recent years, McCartney has said the integration crisis at the school inspired his song "Blackbird" from The Beatles, known as the White Album, in 1968.
