IRVINE — On Friday, UC Irvine's School of Medicine ushered in the class of 2014. This year, instead of finding a shiny new stethoscope in their pockets, they got something a little sweeter: an Apple iPad. So far, the program is the first in the nation to equip their medical students with the digital device. Part of the iMed initiative, UC Irvine believes modern medicine involves a growing commitment to cutting-edge technology. "The physician's 'black bag' of the 21st century eventually won't contain the standard stethoscope, tuning fork and reflex hammer, but rather new generations of digital tools that allow students to enter a realm of routine examinations heretofore unimaginable," UCI Dean Ralph V. Clayman said in a statement.

For most of Dr. John Storch's patients, a doctor's appointment is more like a visit with an old friend than an examination. And on Friday, it was a party. About 20 of Storch's longtime patients, colleagues and friends gathered at his Newport Beach office to celebrate 25 years since the Hoag Memorial Hospital Presbyterian physician graduated from the USC School of Medicine. "I've been coming here as long as he has been in practice because he's just a great doctor," said 95-year-old Jean MacDonald, who credits Storch with her longevity.

It was the mid-’90s, and Kevin DuBrow was more than a dozen years removed from the height of his success when his band Quiet Riot dueled the likes of Michael Jackson and Lionel Richie for the country’s No. 1-selling album. Quiet Riot had gone through several convulsions since that breakthrough album, “Metal Health.” Endless quarrels even led to DuBrow getting fired from his own band. Still, things had calmed down, and the guys released an album in 1993.
