Ten ladies, one song, one chance, no mercy. It's the sudden death round. Contestants take the stage of The Mirage in Las Vegas, in front of their first live audience. This week's show begins with the ladies. The first ten will perform and only five will survive and move on to the next round.

(UPDATED 5/15 WITH PROBABLE CAUSE OF DEATH) Dmitry Volkov, a promising Russian-born cellist who received an Artist Diploma from Peabody Conservatory last year, died on May 10 while visiting Baltimore. He was 26. The cause of death appears to have been a heart defect. "The preliminary word is that it was cardiac arrhythmia," said violinist Daniel Heifetz, founder of the Heifetz International Music Institute at Mary Baldwin College in Staunton, Va., where Mr. Volkov had been an artist in residence.

The 16 teams that qualified for the NCAA tournament are fully aware of the one-and-done nature of the postseason. One bad game - heck, one bad quarter - may be enough to send a contender home to begin the offseason. The single-elimination format of the NCAA tournament will have a familiar feel for Towson (10-7), which had to upset Drexel and Penn State in the Colonial Athletic Association tournament last week to capture the championship and the automatic qualifier to the NCAA tournament.

So much of the Washington Capitals' success in the postseason has stemmed from their ability to protect and hang on to even the slimmest of margins regardless of the adversity they faced. At a certain point, though, there was bound to be a break that went against them. On Monday night at Madison Square Garden it came in the form of a high-sticking call and double-minor penalty on Joel Ward late in the third period as Washington protected a one-goal lead. The New York Rangers scored twice on that power play — Brad Richards to force overtime, then Marc Staal 1:35 into the extra session — to secure a 3-2 victory and a three-games-to-two lead in this Eastern Conference semifinal series.

Much of the hue and cry against 18-hole playoffs the following day in the U.S. Open comes from reporters who are (a) inconvenienced and (b) sick and tired of being holed up for a week in places like Chaska, Minn.I know. I hued and cried myself while covering Monday playoffs at Winged Foot, Brookline and Medinah. What bothered me most was the way they ended, not with a bang but with a whimper. The crowds were less than half the size of the previous day.But if you think media criticism and the small crowd that watched Payne Stewart win in a playoff over Scott Simpson yesterday signal a change in format, you're probably wrong.

WASHINGTON - High blood pressure in the lungs has been identified as a major risk factor for death in adults with sickle cell disease, and all patients with the disease should be screened for it, according to a study to be published today. Almost one-third of adult sickle cell patients who were screened with ultrasound were found to have moderate to severe high blood pressure in the lungs that had not previously been detected, the study found. The results from the tests confirm earlier suggestions from studies of patient records that pulmonary hypertension is present in 20 percent to 40 percent of sickle cell patients and poses a major threat of death, the researchers said in their paper, which appears in The New England Journal of Medicine.

Oakland Mills defied the odds yesterday by winning a regional playoff sudden-death shootout for the second straight year. The No. 2-ranked Scorpions, who lost the coin flip and had to shoot first, needed Glenelg to miss its last two shots in the regulation shootout to send it to sudden death. Brian Grund hit the game-winner on the second round of sudden death after Steve Blakely made his first-round shot. "I just knew this was a really important game," Grund said about his thoughts as he took his shot.

With a 6-7 record, UMBC's only path to the NCAA tournament entails winning the America East tournament at Stony Brook and capturing the automatic qualifier that accompanies that honor. A loss to Hartford in Thursday's semifinal or to the Albany-Stony Brook winner from the other semifinal would mean the Retrievers would begin their offseason next week while the NCAA tournament rages on. The importance of the conference tournament is not lost on coach Don Zimmerman. “Beginning Thursday, it's sudden death,” he said Tuesday afternoon.

Last night, 10 ladies sang for their lives and a chance to secure one of the five spots in their final sudden death round. As we get closer to the bigger stage and more viewers, where our votes count, one would think that the girls would come with their big guns. I'm still feeling like perhaps some of the better talent are on the cutting room floor back in Hollywood. The show kicked off with the "raw talent" of Melinda, who sang a song that Angela did better earlier in the season.

At just 4 months of age, Vance Williams III was already on his second chance at life. In October, Vance was tossed from a burning building by his mother, into the arms of another relative in a fire in Northeast Baltimore that decimated their family — claiming the lives of four children, ages 1, 2, 4, and 7. The blaze also killed Nancy Worrell, the 55-year-old heart of the family, while seriously injuring her husband. For a family dealt a tremendous blow by tragedy, Little Vance's survival represented hope.

Ruchlewicz remembered as kind man and dedicated public servant The sudden death on June 5 of Stanley Ruchlewicz, the longtime Main Street manager and economic development director for Westminster, has caused me to pause and reflect on his wonderful service to me and the efforts put forth by him and all of the other wonderful "public servants" that I dealt with in the planning, organizing, and carrying out of the recent 145th Memorial Day...
