Fans of late R&B-pop star Aaliyah waited more than 10 years to hear officially released work from the singer - which finally happened courtesy of a 2012 single featuring Drake and Chris Brown, who used her vocals on his latest single. But the posthumous collaborations and any further planned productions “won't work,” according to Timbaland. The multi-platinum hitmaker, along with longtime collaborator-friend Missy Elliott, are undoubtedly synonymous with the singer's music, having helped her define and reinvent the sound of '90s urban music.

SAN FRANCISCO - The staff at Stanford Hospital conducted a disaster drill a few weeks ago, a routine reminder for doctors and nurses on what to do if patients started pouring in. Those skills were put to the test Saturday afternoon, when the Palo Alto medical center and its children's hospital took in 55 patients from the Asiana Airlines Flight 214 crash at San Francisco International Airport. The hospital was notified about a “potential mass casualty occurrence” about noon, roughly 30 minutes after the Boeing 777 slammed into the runway, said Dr. Robert Norris, Stanford's chief of emergency medicine.

SAN FRANCISCO -- Investigators with the National Transportation Safety Board are wrapping up the on-scene work in their inquiry into the Saturday's Asiana Airlines crash, officials said. Board Chairwoman Deborah A.P. Hersman said Thursday that although the investigation into the incident will take months to complete, teams are expected to finish "the perishable things" -- such as documenting the aircraft, gathering analytics and interviewing witnesses -- in the coming days. Other work will continue at the agency's headquarters in Washington, D.C. "This is just the tip of the iceberg," she said.
