Jeryl Brunner: A Peek Inside This Year's Race to Erase MS Gala
Huffington Post - over 3 years
When she was 33, Nancy Davis was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis. It was 1991, Davis had three young sons. There was no cure and no available drugs on the market. She went to a doctor and the only advice he could offer was to "go home, go to bed and expect to stop walking," says Davis who has black belt in karate, is a serious skier and plays tennis. Her doctors told her that she would be lucky just to operate the TV remote control. Unwilling to accept her doctors' grim prognosis, by 1993, Davis founded Race to Erase MS. The organization's key mission is to raise funds for aggressive, cutting-edge and promising research in an effort to find a cure. Davis also saw the need for the top MS research institutes to join forces and communicate. So Race to Erase funds The Nancy Davis Center Without Walls program which  brings together top MS researchers from Johns Hopkins, Yale, UC San Francisco, USC, Oregon Health Sciences University and Harvard. In order to have their stud ...

LATimes - almost 5 years
Pledging to "change the way the Internet looks and feels," AOL Chairman and Chief Executive Tim Armstrong used the high-profile platform of the Digital NewFront presentation to advertisers to launch an online network for showcasing digital video. The new network, dubbed AOL On, is designed as a one-stop online destination where viewers can find 14 channels programmed -- as cable television channels are -- around interests such as food, business, entertainment, health and technology. The short-form video could be viewed on four dominant screens -- computers, tablets, mobile phones and Internet-connected TVs.  "Consumer adoption of the Internet is going to continue to explode," Armstrong told a group of more than 450 marketers, ad agency representatives and media buyers at a presentation Tuesday. "Every single human being on the planet is going to be walking around with a screen on them -- and we believe that content is the most important thing that's going to touch those screens." ...

AS we well know these days, any diaster generates its twist-of-fate stories -- people whose lives were spared or lost because of a seemingly harmless delay or decision.

The title "Dracula: Dead and Loving It" is so perfect that it's almost a good-will ambassador for Mel Brooks's slight but amusing new parody. Mr. Brooks may no longer be at the forefront of silly comedy, but he's still laying on the genre gags, horrible puns and enema references with dependable good cheer. So even if this "Dracula" is thin-blooded,

Initially it was concluded that Ritter was suffering a heart attack. At 10:48 PM that night, Ritter died. The cause of death was actually an aortic dissection stemming from a previously undiagnosed congenital heart defect.
