Following the breakout success of its hit series LIVE PD, which follows law enforcement agencies as they patrol their communities, A&E now introduces the new, live documentary series LIVE RESCUE. LIVE RESCUE will follow first responders from across the country as they bravely put their lives on the line responding to emergency rescue calls. Each two-hour episode will place viewers directly in the center of the action and drama as first responders – such as EMTs, paramedics, fire fighters, etc. – quickly react to potentially dangerous situations.

The host of LIVE RESCUE is Ashleigh Banfield, one of television’s top law and justice journalists. Most recently, she hosted Primetime Justice with Ashleigh Banfield on HLN. Prior to that, she anchored Legal View with Ashleigh Banfield on CNN, which she joined in 2011 as co-anchor of the morning news show Early Start. Over the course of her career, Banfield has covered breaking news from across the country and around the globe. Her sit-down interviews include Yasser Arafat, the Israeli Prime Ministers Ehud Barak and Shimon Peres, Iraqi Deputy Prime Minister Tariq Aziz, Saudi Prince Al Faisal, George and Laura Bush, Bill and Hillary Clinton, John McCain, and many others. She was previously a correspondent for ABC News, an anchor and host for TruTV, and a correspondent for NBC News.

Alpha Bionic paints a chilling vision of the future. Vocalist Lindy Gabriel says, "Alpha Bionic is a confident and consistent album compromising of a more upbeat synth infused collection of songs. Lyrically, the album is based on my ideas of what humanity may look like in the next 30-50 years. Humans are turning into machines, blending DNA and technology."

In mid-March, Gabriel and the Apocalypse offered us the first taste of Alpha Bionic with the official music video for "Systematic Chaos," an apocalyptic hard rock anthem that's sure to turn heads.

For generations, we have taught our boys the most important trait they can have is to be stoic and unemotional—and traits that do not fit that mold should be suppressed.  In the wake of #metoo, school shootings, bullying, and other toxic behavior, it’s more important than ever to reflect on what we are teaching our boys they need to be.  Put simply, we need to redefine our expectations of them—and nurture all the attributes that make them who they are: the sensitive and the strong, the creative and the silly, the kind and the curious.
Amid a growing national conversation around boyhood, THE HEART OF A BOY: Celebrating the Strength and Spirit of Boyhood (April 2, 2019; Workman Publishing; $18.95) by Kate T. Parker seeks to positively redefine masculinity at a moment when the country is grappling with how to raise boys to become good people. Parker’s 2017 blockbuster bestseller Strong Is the New Pretty struck a chord throughout the nation and beyond. A gorgeous and inspiring photographic celebration of girls being themselves—fearless, silly, wild, stubborn, proud, fierce—it garnered outstanding media attention and support from the Spice Girls, Drew Barrymore, Kate Winslet, Nicole Kidman, and Emma Watson. It challenged the idea of what it means to be feminine and expressed so clearly that beauty comes not from how you look but from being true to yourself. Now, in this stunning new collection, Parker turns her lens to boys. Because when given permission to be themselves, boys will not only grow up to be the truest version of themselves but will grow up to be men who will support and respect girls and women.
Filled with powerful, moving photographs of the many ways there are to be a boy—a boy’s heart is kind, a boy’s heart is independent, a boy’s heart is curious, a boy’s heart is resilient—accompanied by thoughtful quotes from each subject, THE HEART OF A BOY challenges the notion that boys need to be tough and stoic above all else. Rather, they contain multitudes. Meet Mason, age 6, who pronounces “I like to try new things. I believe in myself.” Matias, age 9, who exclaims “It’s not about what you look like, it’s about your heart.” And Ryan, age 7, who says “I want to be president because I am helpful, kind, and nice.”

David Browne

<a class="spreaker-player" href="https://www.spreaker.com/episode/17680854" data-resource="episode_id=17680854" data-width="100%" data-height="350px" data-theme="dark" data-playlist="show" data-playlist-continuous="true" data-autoplay="false" data-live-autoplay="false" data-chapters-image="true" data-episode-image-position="right" data-hide-logo="true" data-hide-likes="false" data-hide-comments="false" data-hide-sharing="false" data-hide-download="false" >Listen to "David Browne Releases Crosby Stills Nash And Young" on Spreaker.</a><script async src="https://widget.spreaker.com/widgets.js"></script>



Fifty years ago this May, one of rock & roll's most enduring and contentious brotherhoods began when David Crosby, Stephen Stills and Graham Nash released their classic album Crosby, Stills & Nash. The trio almost immediately became a quartet when Neil Young joined them, right in time for the historic Woodstock festival that August 1969. That performance, alongside Crosby, Stills & Nash songs like "Wooden Ships" and "Suite: Judy Blue Eyes," announced the arrival of rock & roll's first "supergroup." Crosby, Stills, Nash, and Young had been assembled from the remnants of Buffalo Springfield, the Byrds, and the Hollies. But the new sound the four men created-rich in harmony and shot through with social commentary-defined a sensibility and an era.
In time for these 50th anniversaries comes David Browne's CROSBY, STILLS, NASH & YOUNG: The Wild, Definitive Saga of Rock's Greatest Supergroup (Da Capo Press, an imprint of Hachette Books, 4/2/19). The most up-to-date biography of the legendary band, the book takes readers through five decades of drama and music of Crosby, Stills, Nash, and (sometimes) Young. Using new interviews with David Crosby and Graham Nash and many comrades, including Judy Collins, Mickey Hart of the Grateful Dead, John Sebastian, the Byrds' Roger McGuinn, and the late Pegi Young, David Browne weaves together pivotal moments of CSNY history: the albums both finished and abandoned, the generation-defining performances, the excesses and arrests, the stories behind some of the most influential songs, the dust-ups, and the reunions-both amicable and otherwise. In vivid, novelistic detail, Browne reports on many of their most extraordinary stories: the inside tale of the machinations of how Young came to join the trio; revealing new details on the mayhem of the making of their classic quartet album Déjà vu; Crosby and Nash's (wildly embarrassing) mid-tour softball game against up-and-coming rock star Bruce Springsteen and his E Street Band; Stills' many wild tales; new insights into Crosby's dramatic fall from addiction and his shocking resurrection; their interactions with everyone from Jimmy Carter to Donald Trump; and never-before-revealed insights into the making of their 2000 and 2006 reunion tours.
The sweeping story of rock's longest-running and most dysfunctional musical family, CROSBY, STILLS, NASH & YOUNG is the book classic-rock fans (and those who've discovered their music for the first time) have long awaited: a detailed history of a band whose career successes-amidst personal failures and dramas-came represent how the "free-love" fantasy of the '60s deteriorated into the "Me Decade" excess of the '70s and the survival of the boomer generation well into their seventies.
