Ricky also leant his voice to films including “Apollo 13” starring Tom Hanks, “Anywhere But Here” starring Susan Sarandon and Natalie Portman and the “Anastasia” soundtrack.  In addition, he appeared on episodes of “American Dreams”, “Boston Public”, “Audrina” (Vh1) and starred in Debbie Allen’s ballet, “Pepito’s Story”, which opened at the Kennedy Center in New York City.

We all experience so much in our lives, from the big moments of getting your first job, to lighter but still important memories like attending our first baseball game.  And although we may know some of the life events important to our loved ones, many of us don’t know about the experiences that truly make them who they are.  How can we learn more about the people that matter to us most? 

To help families learn more about their loved ones, The Funeral and Memorial Information Council (FAMIC) has teamed up with Popular Syndicated Columnist Jim MIller to discuss how to Have The Talk of a Lifetime.  Finding a way to start talking with a loved about significant moments can be the most difficult part, so FAMIC has created Have The Talk of a Lifetime Conversation Cards, which offer questions/ideas for helping to get these conversations started.   These cards include questions such as, “What is the best lesson you ever learned”, and, “what is the scariest thing that ever happened to you?”  By using these conversation questions as jumping off points, you may be surprised by what you learn about people you have spent your entire life with.

Class is back in session this summer as TV Land’s hit comedy series Teachers  returns for a third session. After a much needed long recess, the leaders of the playground are back and ready to conquer a new school year and this season our fearless heroines are fighting the spread of the vicious and highly contagious lice epidemic. The Teachers are put to the test when the dreaded curse of creepy crawlers enters the classroom, and the question remains – who will make it out alive?

Teachers stars The Katydids, the improv group consisting of Caitlin Barlow (Ms. Cannon), Katy Colloton (Ms. Snap), Cate Freedman (Ms. Feldman), Kate Lambert (Ms. Watson), Katie O’Brien (Ms. Bennigan) and Kathryn Renée Thomas (Mrs. Adler). The Katydids write, star and executive produce the series.

Teachers revolves around six elementary school teachers who are trying to mold the minds and lives of America's youth, even though they really don't seem to have their own lives together at all. Last season, Variety hailed the cast, stating, “in terms of acing the midterm, the Katydids have indeed done it,” while Bustle said “the female-driven sitcom is hilarious, insightful, and totally cute.”

The big idea: Most people don’t question their fear-based or self-negating thoughts, but tend to readily accept them. Regardless of whether the destructive thoughts have any basis in reality, people can let them invade their minds and hijack their confidence and well-being. 

The so what: Learning how to ask “Says who?” confronts the negative and fear-based thoughts holding people hostage so that the thoughts no longer exert their influence. Coming to realize that the thought isn’t real or valid, and that it’s ultimately useless to them, allows people to successfully align their inner dialogue with their goals and dreams.

Legendary vocal group The Manhattan Transfer releaseD their first new studio album in 10 years titled THE JUNCTION on March 30 via BMG. In conjunction with the release, the group was seen nationwide with their new PBS special titled "The Summit," a dual show with Take 6 that started April 26; and announced a U.S. tour. The album promptly hit #1 on iTunes' Jazz Chart. THE JUNCTION - the group's new album which draws inspiration from The Transfer's classic 1975 version of Glenn Miller's "Tuxedo Junction" - features the group's newest member, bass vocalist Trist Curless, who joined the group when late band founder Tim Hauser fell ill in 2013; officially joining after Hauser's passing in late 2014. Curless (formerly of m-pact), joins Janis Siegel (alto), Alan Paul (tenor) and Cheryl Bentyne (soprano), as they release a collection of songs that includes five selections that the members wrote or co-write themselves. THE JUNCTION was produced by five-time Grammy winner -- vocalist, film composer, arranger and producer Mervyn Warren.
"As our work on The Junction, and the theme of the album reflects - democracy is the fabric of the group, and has been from the beginning," says Bentyne. "It's a whole different ball game, but one we feel is still musically very viable and exciting," adds Siegel. Paul says, "The concept of The Junction is that this is a special meeting place, a junction of merging our four and a half decade musical legacy with something new. We weren't looking to replace Tim's unique personality, but found in Trist someone who could add a new element to the group, and take care of the bottom of the quartet with his true bass." Curless reflects, "My personal desire was that the album would sound like The Manhattan Transfer, keeping what they've done, but bringing a new energy that would come naturally with my strengths as an artist, becoming a part of theirs."

It’s a few months after the 2016 presidential election, and former VP Joe Biden is lost. For a man who spent his entire career serving his country, life post–White House has lost its luster. While Joe putters around his home in Wilmington, Delaware, his former political partner-in-crime is soaking up the good life, hanging out with the likes of Richard Branson and Bradley Cooper. Joe knows he’s not cut out for kitesurfing and base jumping, but he misses his old friend. Then, just as Joe is about to throw himself a pity party, a familiar face appears in a haze of cigarette smoke. Barack has come with some solemn news: Joe’s favorite Amtrak conductor, Finn Donnelly, has died in a suspicious accident.
The news strikes Joe hard. Donnelly was the conductor he saw every day while riding the train between Wilmington and Capitol Hill. He was a family man, and came from a long line of railroad workers. But what’s even more puzzling is the news Obama delivers next: on Donnelly’s desk, the police found a piece of a map leading straight to Biden’s house. Was Donnelly trying to reach out? And how did such a careful guy get struck by an Acela? Joe knows there’s more to the story than meets the eye. He promises Donnelly’s daughter he’ll find out what really happened, and a Biden always keeps a promise. But Joe is a private citizen now—what can he do?
That’s when the Obama/Biden mission begins.
Filled with a familiar desire to serve and Barack by his side, Joe is determined to uncover the truth. Along the way, he and POTUS 44 find themselves traversing the darkest corners of Delaware, searching for evidence in run-down motels, confronting a dangerous biker gang, hanging off
an Amtrak train, and uncovering a conspiracy that’s advancing America’s opioid epidemic.
No-nonsense Joe is not taking anyone’s malarkey. And he won’t stop until justice is served.

DEADLY FORCE: A Police Shooting and My Family's Search for the Truth by Lawrence O'Donnell (including a new preface and afterword). Originally published in 1983, this crucial story from the host of MSNBC's The Last Word chronicles the 1975 police shooting of an unarmed black man in Boston-one of the first to draw national headlines-and the dramatic investigation and court case that followed. Tragically, the events O'Donnell recounts in this book remain far too common today, with police killings of unarmed black men-from Michael Brown, to Eric Garner, to Laquan McDonald, to the hundreds of other similar cases that happen every year in the U.S.
On a rainy winter night, James Bowden, Jr. left his mother's house in Roxbury after a visit. As he guided his Buick out of his parking spot, an unmarked police car suddenly blocked his path. Two undercover officers sprang out, running toward his car. Shots were fired, and Bowden slumped over the wheel. Moments later, he was pronounced dead on arrival at a nearby hospital. The police argued that they had fired in self-defense, claiming that Bowden was an armed robbery suspect and that after they had ordered him to stop, he had fired a shot at one of them. And multiple internal investigations by the Boston Police Department exonerated the officers involved.
But Patricia Bowden, James's widow, knew better. "The truth will come out," she said at her husband's funeral. She sought a lawyer willing to take on the Boston Police Department and finally found one in Lawrence F. O'Donnell, the author's father, a man whose past, unbeknownst to Patricia Bowden, made him the only lawyer in town who could not refuse her case. O'Donnell embarked on a highly contentious three-year battle with the Boston Police Department to win justice for James Bowden.
DEADLY FORCE is a powerful indictment of police misconduct, a reminder of this issue's long, tortured history, and an illustration of how far we still have to go.

Smithsonian Channel’s Hell Below
Gives Viewers a Deep Dive into Submarine Warfare 


Speak with Award-Winning Author and Military Journalist
James M. Scott about Our Nation’s Most Dramatic
Submarine Victories and Tragedies 

Submarine attacks are among the most feared forms of maritime warfare. During World War II, the U.S. Navy and the other Allied powers faced off against German U-boats and Japanese forces set on unrestricted submarine warfare. Smithsonian Channel’s popular series Hell Below, which begins its second season on July 1, details both the successes and tragedies of these underwater conflicts in World War II and during the Cold War. The series also profiles the strategic and military masterminds behind these submarine campaigns and the rapidly evolving technology used in stalking and battle. Each hour-long episode features expert analysis and stock footage along with dramatic re-enactments filmed aboard authentic World War II era submarines, placing viewers in the heart of battle.

One of the experts featured in Hell Below is James M. Scott. An award-winning writer and former reporter and investigative journalist, James has reported from Afghanistan, Iraq and tsunami-devastated Indonesia. His acclaimed book The War Below – based on more than 100 interviews with submarine veterans – tells the story of the submarine force that helped win World War II by ravaging Japan’s merchant fleet and destroying the nation’s economy. His previous book The Attack on the Liberty won the prestigious Rear Admiral Samuel Eliot Morrison Award for Excellence in Naval Literature. His most recent release Target Tokyo was a 2016 Pulitzer Prize finalist.

James can share some of the exciting submarine warfare stories featured on Hell Below, discuss the role of submarine campaigns in military strategy, and the amazing advances in submarine technology since WWII,

Michael Jackson continues to fascinate the world. Shana Mangatal was one of Jackson’s constant and true rocks of stability for nearly two decades. Their relationship was quiet and sweet and real—a closely guarded secret known only to a few trusted employees and friends. Shana is now coming forward to tell their love story. Sometimes strange, sometimes surprising, always fascinating, this is the story that Jackson fans have been waiting for.

During her seven years working for Michael’s personal manager during the prolific period of the 1990s, Shana witnessed the scandals and the lawsuits, the release of groundbreaking albums and the subsequent world tours, the making of big-budget short films, and the addictions. It was through this business relationship that their trust and love for each other grew. Shana kept a meticulous diary throughout it all. Her story is rich with every little detail.
           
Michael and Me entertains and inspires, but above all, Shana continues to treat Michael (and his legacy) with respect. This is not an exploitative tell-all but rather a book that shows the side of Michael people never knew. In it, Shana paints a more intimate picture of this beloved yet very misunderstood man.

In this conversation Shana opens her heart about her experiences with one of the most creative men in music.  The very man that brought his sons forward into a world waiting to be inspired by the sounds and vibrations of music that would become our soundtrack and more.  Mr. Joe Jackson.  

You can get Shana's book right now on Amazon.com

From the producers of the legendary "Jersey Shore",
"MTV Floribama Shore" returns for a Season 2, bringing our favorite southerners to Panama City Beach for Spring Break!

“MTV Floribama Shore” was the #1 original cable series in its time period and the #2 new original unscripted cable series in 2017.


Catch up with cast members Candace Rice & Jeremiah Buoni! 


Set in the Florida Panhandle along the beach that stretches all the way to Alabama, MTV Floribama Shore is the story of eight young adults who come to spend spring break in the hottest beach town on the Gulf Coast, Panama City Beach, to party it up and put the real world on hold for just a little bit longer. This coming-of-age story captures the very real thrill and angst of being young and trying to figure out the future.


Jeremiah Buoni originally hails from Amelia Island, FL, where he worked as a bartender. Fitness is his forte and he is a gym-rat obsessed with body and workout. This spring break he’s looking to have a good time in the house with his roommates, but are the relationships he built last season going to last?

Memphis-native Candace Rice brings the southern belle to Panama City Beach with her big hair, perfectly applied make-up and Instagram-ready outfits. This spring break, she wants to be care-free. Her quick wit and no-nonsense demeanor make her a voice of reason in the house, and she happily takes wild child Kortni under her wing.

Evel Live is an unprecedented three-hour live event happening Sunday, July 8, at 8PM ET (5PM PT) and is part of HISTORY'S second annual car week. American professional motorsports star Travis Pastrana will honor legendary daredevil Evel Knievel by attempting three of his most dangerous feats in Las Vegas, Nevada, all while riding a modern day recreation inspired by the motorcycle Knievel used. These stunts include: breaking Knievel’s record jump over the length of 52 cars, another record-breaking jump over 16 full size buses, and aiming to make history as the first person to successfully jump the Caesars Palace fountain on a bike similar to the one Knievel used 50 years ago – an attempt that ended with a crash that left Knievel grasping for life. If Pastrana rides away from all three, he will be the only person to successfully beat two of Knievel’s distance records and land a jump over the fountain on a v-twin motorcycle. All of this will happen in the span of just three hours, and HISTORY will capture every exhilarating, nerve-wracking moment live.
Alongside the three epic jumps will be live interviews with Knievel and Pastrana family members, archival footage of the history behind Knievel’s many daring jumps, and expert analysis. Evel Knievel was the world’s first iconic daredevil and created a legacy that inspired generations and left audiences in awe of his audacious feats. Pastrana has stepped into Knievel’s shoes as America’s modern-day daredevil. Inspired by his predecessor, Pastrana was the first person ever to land a double backflip on a motorcycle.

On the first day, there was Black Sabbath. On the second, Soundgarden.   Now, there is Burn River Burn.

Would you walk away from your marriage in order to save it? That is the provocative question at the heart of acclaimed author Elyssa Friedland’s highly anticipated second novel, THE INTERMISSION, an irresistible and incisive portrait of a marriage at a crossroads, told from the perspectives of the husband and wife—each with something to hide. After five long years, the unshakable confidence Cass Coyne felt as a bride is gone. Her husband, Jonathan, on the other hand, is still smitten. It’s true that the quirks he once found charming in his wife–her high standards, her refusal to clean the dishes–are beginning to grate. But for him, these are minor challenges in a healthy relationship. So it comes as a complete shock to Jonathan when Cass suddenly requests a marital “intermission”: a six-month separation during which they’ll decide if the comfortable life they’ve built is still the one they both want. What ensues is a tightly-wrought “he said, she said” account of their relationship as the couple lives separate lives on opposite coasts, reuniting once a month for an elaborate custody swap of their beloved dog. But as the months pass, they begin to see that calculated silences just like these have helped to drive them apart–and that it may finally be time to confront the blistering secrets they’ve been avoiding. THE INTERMISSION is a poignant examination of the challenges and compromises of a shared life and a deeply moving exploration of the secrets we keep from those we love most. Fans of Liane Moriarty will be drawn to its themes of trust, intimacy, and skeletons in the closet, while its references to gender and power dynamics in Hollywood are both captivating and timely. yssa

David Sanger


<a class="spreaker-player" href="https://www.spreaker.com/episode/15177051" data-resource="episode_id=15177051" 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-hide-logo="true" data-hide-likes="false" data-hide-comments="false" data-hide-sharing="false" >Listen to "David Sanger Releases The Perfect Weapon" on Spreaker.</a><script async src="https://widget.spreaker.com/widgets.js"></script>


In THE PERFECT WEAPON, New York Times national security correspondent David Sanger traces the escalation of cyberwarfare, and explores how wars can now be won-or lost-without a shot being fired.
For seventy years, the thinking inside the Pentagon was that only nations with nuclear weapons could threaten America's existence. But that assumption is now in doubt: in a world in which almost everything is interconnected-phones, cars, electrical grids, and satellites-everything can be disrupted, if not destroyed. In THE PERFECT WEAPON (on sale June 19), New York Times national security correspondent and bestselling author David Sanger vividly details how this new revolution, being conducted largely in secret, is reshaping global power.
"Cyberweapons are so cheap to develop and so easy to hide that they have proven irresistible for large and small powers alike," Sanger writes. "Because such attacks rarely leave smoking ruins, Washington remains befuddled about how to respond. Our adversaries have realized that it's a great way to undercut us without being made to pay any real price for such actions."
Focusing largely on the "Seven Sisters" of cyber conflict-the United States, Russia, China, Britain, Iran, Israel, and North Korea-THE PERFECT WEAPON is the dramatic story of how cyber conflict has expanded since the revelation of the American/Israeli attacks on Iran's nuclear program. Sanger exposed the story of Washington's role in those attacks six years ago, in his book CONFRONT AND CONCEAL. Now he explores how great and small powers alike have moved into a new era of constant sabotage, misinformation, and fear, in which everyone is a target.

A decade ago, there were three or four nations with effective cyber forces; now there are more than thirty. As of early 2018, the best estimates suggest there have been upward of two hundred state-on-state cyberattacks over the past decade or so-a figure that describes only those that have become public. Yet as the global cyber conflict took off, America turned out to be remarkably unprepared. Its own weapons were stolen from the American arsenal by a group called Shadow Brokers and were quickly turned against the United States and its allies. Even while the United States built up a powerful new Cyber Command, it had no doctrine for how to use it. Deterrence failed. When under attack-by Russia, China, Iran or North Korea-the government was often paralyzed, unable to use cyberweapons when America's voting system, its electrical system, and even routers in citizens' homes had been infiltrated by foreign hackers. American citizens, Sanger concludes, have become the collateral damage in a war being fought in foreign computer networks and along undersea cables.
