 The changing face of the Boy Scouts | Watch Video
Members of Troop 1262 out of Salt Lake City are learning the skills the Boy Scouts of America have trained in for more than a hundred years. But many of these scouts are new to America - refugees from countries like Burma. And the Boy Scouts organization - after courting controversy for excluding, then welcoming gay scouts and leaders - is now accepting girls.

While participation has steadily declined over the past four decades, scouting still has power, and perhaps more relevance than ever.  Tony Dokoupil reports.

ART: De-constructing the art of Anselm Kiefer | Watch Video
Correspondent Liz Palmer gets a glimpse into the workings of German painter-sculptor Anselm Kiefer, considered one of the world's most important living artists. At his studio outside Paris, we watch Kiefer laboring on some of his latest projects -- working with molten lead.

Kiefer also talks about the themes in his art, which are both complex and confrontational. As the artist has said: "Art really is something very difficult. It is difficult to make, and it is sometimes difficult for the viewer to understand … A part of it should always include having to scratch your head."
