The Medical Board of California licenses physicians and other medical professionals. It also investigates complaints about medical treatment and issues disciplinary actions. The most serious penalties include license revocation, suspension and probation. These are the Los Angeles County medical professionals subject to serious disciplinary actions between Nov. 1, 1993, and Jan. 31, 1994, according to medical board documents. Final actions are published only after all appeals are exhausted.

Although the hunt for vintage clothing may be enticing to some people, others would rather bypass digging for buried treasure that, even when found, may consist of garments that are tattered or in a size best suited for the bird-boned women of the 1940s. But the retro aesthetic is still a desirable one, particularly for the thriving rockabilly subculture of Southern California that favors 1940s- and 1950s-inspired dresses. Not to be excluded are the plus-sized women who love the look of vintage garments but are hard-pressed to find pieces that fit, especially since the average American woman is an inch taller and 24 pounds heavier than her counterpart in 1960, according to figures compiled by the national Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Rubin Postaer & Associates held on to its signature account -- American Honda Motor Co. -- but the agency lost a significant piece of business in one of the advertising industry's most-closely watched reviews. Honda announced late Monday that it was dividing its advertising duties among three separate agencies. RPA, which was formed in 1986 to handle the Honda account, retained the creative work for the nation's fifth-largest auto seller. Many of the Santa Monica agency's 500 employees have been nervous since Honda announced in December that it was putting the account up for review.

Rarely has a city been as in love with a shipping company as Rotterdam, Netherlands, is with the Holland America line. So July 3, when the 1997 Rotterdam VI left the Netherlands' second-largest city for New York City, the Dutch turned out in force to commemorate the 40th anniversary of Holland America's last transatlantic liner voyage. My wife, Laurel, and I were aboard this 1,364-passenger ship, which is more reminiscent of traditional liners than many of today's mega-cruise ships.

Many pros express frustration that their raises don't always get a lot of respect because amateurs want to beat them in a pot or go home with a story if they lose to the name player. To counter that, a lot of pros will take some shots with surprising hands that can both take down a big pot and send a message to the table, as top pro Michael Mizrachi did in this hand from the 2010 World Series of Poker $10,000-buy-in main event. With blinds at $100-$200, the player in Seat 5 limped.

A pair of otherworldly photos from Superstorm Sandy will be forever etched in my memory of the historic hurricane. The first photo showed up in much of the mainstream media coverage and became a symbol of the storm: A seemingly intact roller coaster poking out of the Atlantic Ocean off the Jersey Shore like the skeleton of a sea serpent. The second image ricocheted around the Internet via social media sites and became a symbol of vulnerability and resilience following the storm: An undamaged carousel inside an eerily lit enclosure completely surrounded by water that looked like a glowing jewelry box floating off the New York City coast.

It's so easy to make fun of the 1980s. Ray-Bans, glam-rock hair, acid-washed jeans, the yuppie and Reaganomics, and all those regrettable images of women in power suits and tennis shoes. It seemed even as it was occurring an age of Culture Lite, a consumer-driven wasteland after the socially and politically transformative '60s and '70s. Even the title of National Geographic's new six-hour, three-part documentary "The '80s: The Decade That Made Us" seems, at first glance, a bit of a joke.

Audi won't have an official presence at this week's 2013 New York International Auto Show, but that hasn't stopped the company from making big news for the U.S. market. The automaker announced Tuesday evening that the all-new 2015 A3 and S3 sedans would be coming to U.S. shores in early 2014. The compact Audis will come standard in front-wheel-drive, with a more upmarket model coming with the company's optional quattro all-wheel-drive system. The move to a sedan layout is a big change for the A3 in the U.S. market, where previously the car had been sold only as a hatchback.
