A new tactic being proposed in the war on the drugs may put all New Yorkers on the front lines of the battle. This may just enable you to help save lives in the process. Find out how. Meet “The Refugee Doctor” who has devoted her life to saving survivors of genocide. Bill Nye is perhaps the most beloved teacher in America. He’s here to discuss his life outside the lab and the POV documentary “Bill Nye: Science Guy.” We look at the life of Flushing’s First Lady. The late Barbara Bush was the wife of one President and the mother of another.  But, it’s often forgotten, she was born a New Yorker. We take a look back at the matriarch of an American dynasty, who started her life in Queens.
