    Washington Week with Gwen Ifill [#5341H] President Obama and 3 former presidents - Jimmy Carter, Bill Clinton and George W. Bush - commemorated the 50th anniversary of the passage of the Civil Rights Act during a 3-day summit at the Lyndon B. Johnson Presidential Library in Texas this week. The 1964 law prohibits discrimination on the basis of race, color, religion, sex or national origin. Time Magazine's Michael Duffy, author of "The Presidents Club," will take a closer look at how the presidents honored President Johnson's landmark legislation and why half a century later they remain focused on the work that remains to be done to address civil rights issues in America. Gwen Ifill explores The Arc of History and the Civil Rights Law in this week's Gwen's Take. < br>Just one day after President Obama signed executive orders strengthening equal pay laws, Senate Republicans blocked a Democrat-sponsored bill aimed at closing the pay gap between men and women. Republicans say they object to the Paycheck Fairness Act because it would lead to government interference and substantial burdens on businesses. Alexis Simendinger of Real Clear Politics will examine the policy and politics at the center of the debate over income inequality.
    Since immigration reform remains stalled on Capitol Hill, advocates are turning their attention to the White House demanding that the president push forward some type of action to address unauthorized immigrants' deportation and detention fears. Fawn Johnson of National Journal will explain why the pressure is mounting on the Obama administration to act before the November midterm elections.
    Plus, Amy Walter of the Cook Political Report will explore the prospective candidacies of Hillary Rodham Clinton and Jeb Bush and the debate over political dynasties.

Successes are met with failures in places like Philippi and Thessaloniki, but Paul is proud of hardships as they serve to strengthen his resolve to change the world. All roads lead to Rome, the hub of early Christianity, and it is here that Paul will pay the ultimate price. duration 52:05   STEREO TVPG

    Healing A.D.D. with Dr. Daniel Amen ADD or ADHD is a national health crisis that continues to grow-yet it remains one of the most misunderstood and incorrectly treated illnesses today. Kids and adults are put on powerful stimulant medications in short office visits without any biological information, and the stories of these medications hurting children and adults are common and persistent.
    In this national public television program, psychiatrist Daniel Amen and his wife nurse Tana Amen take a completely new look at ADD and explain 7 unique types based on the extensive brain imaging work of the Amen Clinics on tens of thousands of ADD patients. Treating all people with ADD the same invites failure and frustration and can be a disaster, as the traditional treatments that make two of the types better can make the other 5 types worse.
    The show is divided into three parts. In Part One, the myths and misconceptions about ADD will be discussed as well as the hallmark ADD symptoms. In Part Two, the 7 different types of ADD will be described in detail. And, in Part Three Dr. and Mrs. Amen we'll give you a clear method for Healing ADD, including the best natural treatments. They are not opposed to medication, but think it's smart to start with lifestyle and natural treatments first.

    Bee Gees: One Night Only The Bee Gees, in this glossy musical and visual event, perform their biggest singles from the '60s, '70s, '80s and '90s, plus songs from their recent CD, Still Waters. Taped at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas in November 1997, the concert features the timeless harmonies of Robin, Barry, and the late Maurice Gibb, and includes a special appearance by guest artist Celine Dion, performing "Immortality." Counted among the most successful musical groups of all time, the Bee Gees are the only recording artists to write and produce six straight number-one singles, and the first composers to have five songs in the Top Ten at the same time.

But their participation on the soundtrack of the generation-defining film Saturday Night Fever shot them to mega-stardom in the mid-'70s. Featuring a slew of pop/disco standards like "Stayin' Alive, " "Night Fever" and "How Deep is Your Love," the album remains the biggest selling soundtrack in history, with 40 million copies sold to date.

    The Bee Gees continued their success into the '80s and'90s, with platinum albums like Spirits Having Flown and successful collaborations with the likes of Barbra Streisand, Diana Ross, Dionne Warwick and Dolly Parton/Kenny Rogers. In 1997 they were inducted into the Rock ' n' Roll Hall of Fame, and received career achievement awards from the American Music Awards and World Music Awards - tributes to the lasting quality of their work.
