  • Noted American anime voice actor Gary Dublin passed away last week (8 October 2016) from bone cancer at the age of 57.

@Ceannlann gorm: Unfortunately, this story is already nine days old; so it's no longer a current event. --Pi zero (talk) 21:34, 17 October 2016 (UTC)
@Ceannlann gorm: @Pi zero: But we could find an angle to follow-up on like reactions to his death or a memorial service or possibly from original interviews. —Justin (koavf)TCM 21:41, 17 October 2016 (UTC)
Yes. There are certainly approaches that could be taken. One needs a focal event that has just happened; the death itself is nine days ago, and it's not clear just when the public announcement of the death took place but we know, from the earlier source, that it must have been at least four days ago. So those two events are no longer current. --Pi zero (talk) 21:47, 17 October 2016 (UTC)

He saved his life[edit]

I would like to offer you the following story suggestion:

A Son’s Love for his Dying Father

Through fate, I met this young man from Seoul South Korea. His name is Youngbeom Kwon. This past June Yongbeom gave his father the Gift of Life. He father had been in severe pain for several months and was diagnosed with cancer in his liver. He had Hepatitus B for his entire life. Faced with death and only one chance of survival, his only son Youngbeom decided to donate 70% of his liver to his dying father, Syekyung Kwon, age 62. I suggested he come to the United States for the surgery but the family was convinced that Korean surgery is world famous for its living liver transplantation. Yongbeom speaks great English as he was an exchange student at the California State University in Freso in 2009 and interned at Port of Oakland and Baker & McKenzie, NYC in 2010. His story is heartwarming and one that many might ask themselves, would I give up 70% of my liver? Contact information for Yongbeom Kwon

Yongbeom Kwon

Removed contact info, just to be on the safe side. —Justin (koavf)TCM 16:28, 11 July 2017 (UTC)
