Surgeon and bioethicist Sherwin Nuland surmounted tragedies and depression to write the critically acclaimed, unflinchingly detailed masterpiece on the untidy process of dying.
Dr. Sherwin B. Nuland was a respected surgeon and bioethicist at Yale University and author of two modestly successful books when he was approached in the early 1990s by a young literary editor. The agent was looking for someone to write a book about what happens to the body and mind during the process of dying, and Nuland had been recommended to him.
Kalvert began directing music videos in the late 1980s, scoring a hit with his first major assignment, 'Parents Just Don't Understand.'
Scott Kalvert, a director who made music videos for performers such as Will Smith and Cyndi Lauper and directed a teenage Leonardo DiCaprio in the 1995 film "The Basketball Diaries," died Wednesday at his Woodland Hills Home. He was 49.
The orthopedic surgeon invented a transplant procedure that saved the Dodgers pitcher's arm and the careers of many other major leaguers.
In the summer of 1974, Dodger pitcher Tommy John heard his arm snap like a guitar string after delivering a pitch. The torn ligament was the type of injury that commonly ended athletic careers, but John, then a 31-year-old star, pushed team doctors "to figure it out."
