SPECIAL CHILDREN UPDATE:

ZTE allowed to resume some U.S. business activities just months after 7-year ban issued

TwitterFacebook

ZTE, the Chinese smartphone maker that was banned from operating in the U.S. this past April, may already be resuming its stateside operations. And it has President Donald Trump to thank for the assist.

According to a document obtained by Bloomberg, due to pressure from the Trump administration, the U.S. Department of Commerce’s Bureau of Industry and Security has authorized ZTE to resume some business activities as a deal is worked out regarding its ban in the country.

In April, ZTE was banned from importing phone parts from the U.S. for repeatedly misleading the Commerce Department’s Bureau of Industry and Security. The U.S. intelligence community also issued a warning to U.S. consumers, urging them not to purchase phones made by certain Chinese manufacturers — including ZTE — due to spying and security concerns. Because of the ban, ZTE had ceased all U.S. operations in May. The ban was supposed to last for 7 years. Read more…

How This Man Made $60K in 2 Months as an Independent Claims Adjuster


As August turned into September in 2017, the eyes of the nation were glued to their tablets, phones and TV screens. Hurricane Harvey had just slammed Texas with record rainfall and catastrophic flooding, and Hurricane Irma was tearing through the Caribbean with its sights set on Florida.

It seemed like The Weather Channel was on wherever you went.

Brett Brown’s eyes were fixed on his computer screen too, but for different reasons: He was hunting for a job.

Fresh out of grad school with a degree in plant pathology, Brown was back in his hometown of Mobile, Alabama, and looking to put his education to good use. But as we all know, landing a job is easier said than done.

So when Brown got a phone call from an old family friend about a temporary job opportunity, he was intrigued. Would he be willing to do some work in Florida for a few weeks after Irma passed? The friend told Brown that he could make enough to pay off most of his student loans, if not all of them.

Naturally, Brown was skeptical. Usually when you get a call out of the blue about a job that pays thousands of dollars and requires no previous experience, it’s too good to be true. But for independent insurance adjusters in the aftermath of a natural disaster, those kind of earnings are very real.

So Brown loaded up his truck and headed to Florida.

Becoming an Independent Catastrophe Claims Adjuster

Independent adjusters work as a contractor for an adjusting firm. Earnings vary, depending on the amount of work put in and the adjusting firm’s fee schedule, but skilled independent adjusters can make upwards of six figures a year.

Like staff adjusters, who work for one company, or public adjusters, who represent policy holders, independents can handle daily claims, catastrophe claims or a mix of both. Daily work consists of routine claims that happen all the time, like water damage from a busted pipe.  Catastrophe claims are the result of a natural or man-made disasters, such as a hurricane or an oil spill.

Brown hadn’t abandoned his goal of working in horticulture, but when an opportunity to make good money comes a-knockin’ (or, in this case, calling) he took it.

Adjusters Needed — Badly

Because Harvey and Irma happened in such quick succession, Florida faced a monumental problem: a shortage of insurance adjusters. Staff and independent adjusters from all over the country had already made their way to Texas by the time Irma barreled through the Sunshine State.

With two of the country’s largest and most populated states hit hard by hurricanes that caused over $ 290 billion in damages, independent catastrophe adjusters were in high demand, and firms were willing to take on people with little to no experience.

So on Sept. 12, 2017, Brown found himself at the Quality Inn & Suites in Gulf Breeze, Florida, to start training as an independent claims adjuster for the Canada-based company Catastrophe Response Unit. He had zero experience and wasn’t quite sure what he’d had signed up for.

The Training Process

While working as a claims adjuster, Brown would spend up to 16 hours a day working using a ladder, pitch gauge, tape measure and his phone to photograph roofs and other damaged property. Jeff Haller for The Penny Hoarder

Brown and about 70 other people in his group spent the next five days filling out paperwork, watching training videos, taking tests and listening to presentations on proper procedures for inspecting and processing claims. Since the need for adjusters was so high, the training process was streamlined.

“They were just trying to get people out in the field and get clients seen and properties inspected as soon as they possibly could,” Brown says.

He had to learn the industry’s standard software for property claims estimation. And he had to buy it — for $ 150. Independent claims adjusters cover their expenses — lodging, gas, food, the whole nine yards — out of pocket. Fortunately for Brown, he already had a laptop, a ladder and a truck.

“[Catastrophe Response Unit] stressed that you don’t think about the money that you’re spending now,” Brown says. “Just think about the investment that you’re making for yourself in the next month or two.”

Claims adjusters, even temporary ones, must be licensed, and each state has its own rules and regulations. After completing the five days of training and certification, Brown earned an emergency license. Several states — Florida being one of them — make these available during catastrophe situations.

How Payment Is Made

Independent adjusters work on a contract basis, with their pay based on a fee schedule rather than a salary or hourly wage. An insurance company pays the independent adjusting firm a certain fee per every claim closed; the percentage paid is based on the final claim settlement. Once the company receives its fee, it pays the adjuster a portion, which generally ranges from 55% to 70%. (With CRU, Brown’s was around 60%.)

To break it down a little further: When Brown processed a claim of up to $ 20,000, he made $ 600. For claims between $ 20,000 and $ 50,000, he took home $ 900; over $ 50,000, his fee was $ 1,200.

In other words, the more difficult and costly the claim, the higher the payout.

A Day in the Life

After completing the speedy training process, Brown headed south to set up base in Tampa, Florida. With no previous experience in claims adjusting, the learning curve was steep. His first week was pretty rough.

Brown started with 50 claims. He had to contact each policyholder to schedule a time to view the damage before he could get out in the field. He booked visits to homes near one another in order to maximize the amount of visits he could make in a day.

Once he had some inspections scheduled, the hard, physical work really kicked in.

Brown set his alarm for 6 a.m., with his first inspection starting as early as 7:30. Although he was based in Tampa, his appointments took him all over central Florida.

Inspections averaged about an hour, depending on the amount of damage. While he only took on one or two inspections a day in the beginning, Brown added more as he grew comfortable. By his second week, he was logging four or five claims a day. At his busiest times, Brown handled up to 10 in a single day.

Once he found his groove, he was earning between $ 600 and $ 6,000 a day.

Whether the property was missing a few shingles or had lost an entire wall, each one required extensive inspection. Hauling around a ladder and climbing up on roofs was part of the job — and don’t forget this was all in Florida, where autumn is an urban legend and 90-degree days are standard.

It was on one of those roofs, about a week in, that Brown realized his worn-out New Balances were not proper footwear. He found himself trapped on a particularly steep roof, in danger of sliding off. Brown avoided his own catastrophe, but invested in some sturdy, non-slip work boots.

After a long day of inspections, with maybe a 30-minute lunch break squeezed in, Brown would head back to the rental house he shared with other CRU adjusters he met during training. But his work was far from over. In order to get the claim processed, paperwork for each inspection was required. He’d stay up until about midnight entering damages into his software and drawing up paperwork, then set his alarm and wake up at 6 to do it all over again.

Brown’s insanely long hours are an industry norm during a catastrophe. “They stay in a fleabag hotel and work 16 hours a day, six to seven days a week,” says Peter Crosa, who owns Peter J. Crosa & Co. and has been in the adjusting business for over 40 years. “They end up making a lot of money… but it’s tough duty.”

In addition to being away from home, driving to properties scattered across several counties and working 16-hour days, Brown had to meet with people who were dealing with the nightmare of a damaged or destroyed home. That part was challenging and emotionally draining.

In all, though, Brown found the job quite rewarding. He was, after all, helping people in times of dire need.

The Net Result

On Nov. 1, Brown packed his bags and headed home to Alabama. Less than two months of working 16-hour days, seven days a week had grossed him over $ 60,000.

After deducting taxes, which as an independent contractor he had to handle on his own, Brown netted about $ 40,000. He decided to put a little bit away for rainy days and investments. The rest went toward his student loans, and he was able to pay off the majority. Brown still has some debt left, but imagine the relief of paying off $ 40,000 worth of loans in one sitting.

So was it all worth it?

“Oh, absolutely,” Brown says. “The first couple of weeks, I was doubting myself and the opportunity as a whole, but after that second week it really became clear that this was not just blowing smoke.”

Brown still plans to pursue a career in horticulture. But he says he won’t totally rule out doing some short-term claims adjusting in the future — especially now that he knows what he’d be getting himself into.

After all, he’s still got more student loans to pay.

When will I sleep again? 15 months in and no end in sight

by

Kelly Wilbanks

posted in Parenting

I’m trapped in a prison of my own making. I know I should have been strong when Annie was 4 months old and needed to learn sleeping skills, but I folded time and time again. Now, I have a baby who would rather scream in her crib for hours than just lie down and get the sleep she needs. And I feel ashamed.

I remember a conversation I had with my old pastor and his wife. They shared how they left their son to cry in his bedroom all night so that he’d learn how to sleep. It worked for them. The next night he cried less and by the end of the week he was sleeping through the night. They did that with all their children and he, they claimed, had by far been their hardest.

I couldn’t bring myself to do the same with my first, Vivianne. Stories like that make me feel weak. I just can’t deal with a crying baby. I stress. I worry. I can’t seem to resist being the answer to their cry. I try to be tough — like the other night when I put Annie (my 15-month-old) in her crib to cry it out. She was in there for an hour before I folded.

Her crib is in the same room where her sisters sleep, so I sent them to my bedroom so I could tough it out with Annie. I was so tired. Her dad was on his way, but wouldn’t be home until midnight. No one was sleeping. Everyone was exhausted and I felt bad for making her sisters suffer too. I’m damned if I do and damned if I don’t.

She was a sad, wet, overly-tired mess. She was practically hyperventilating. She didn’t want binkies, or to hold my hand through her crib walls, she refused any form of comfort unless it meant she could leave her crib. Her dad finally got home and held her and rocked her to sleep. It was what needed to happen to calm everyone down, but it undid the last five hours in five minutes.

Annie-crying-collage

This is my sweet girl at 6:28 p.m. and another picture of her at 11:42 p.m. I’m a third-time mom. I should have some tried-and-true theories about how this works, but Annie isn’t backing down and I have a whole household that’s being affected.

I like holding my babies and rocking them to sleep. I like the pause it gives me in my busy day to hold their little bodies close to mine and feel their weight shift onto me as they begin dreaming. I’m going to miss that when they are older. I like holding my babies. What I don’t like is when they stir from a dead sleep as soon as they sense you getting up to put them in their crib.

baby-sleeping-in-lap

I don’t feel in control of our sleeping situation and that’s embarrassing, tiring, and relentless. Not only is Annie giving me problems, but her older sisters have started upping their game, too. I’m outnumbered three-to-one at night because my husband works evenings and I’m just so tired of the battle.

How do I get back on top? This is a king-size bed, but I’m barely on it. My baby is “winning” but really losing, and my stiff body and overall grumpiness isn’t helping anyone. By the time bedtime rolls around I’m just exhausted. When my older children start jumping out of bed for one more cuddle I. Just. Can’t.

baby-taking-over-bed

There are some perks: the baristas know me and my drink of choice and prepare it for me while I’m waiting in line at my favorite coffee shop’s drive-thru. I do have a fantastic husband who helps as much as possible even though he gets less sleep than I do. I have adorable kids that I love deeply and obviously love me deeply.

I don’t have any sleep solutions right now because nothing I’ve tried is working. I’m in the trenches and rather than sprinkle this with some overly simplified advice for other people in the same place, I’d rather just say that this stage SUCKS. Being tired all the time is hard. It makes me forget the small joys, the love my kids are demonstrating even in this, and that some day I will get my bed back.

What will Meghan Markle be learning in her six months of Princess lessons?

Watch your back Mia Thermopolis.

Stephen Lawrence Memorial, St Martin in the Fields, London, UK – 23 Apr 2018

Meghan Markle has fitted seamlessly into the royal family from the moment she started dating Harry, from bonding with the Queen’s corgis to getting an early invite to spend Christmas at Sandringham with the Windsors.

And now that the couple have tied the knot, Meghan is officially a royal, with the Queen giving Prince Harry and Meghan Markle the titles, Duke and Duchess of Sussex, as a wedding present.

The newlyweds made their first public appearance as Duke and Duchess at Prince Charles’ 70th birthday party at Buckingham Palace this week, with Meghan nailing Duchess chic in a Goat dress and Philip Treacy hat.

But while she is proving herself to be in the know on royal protocol, wearing tights to public engagements and curtsying to both the Duchess of Cambridge and Queen Elizabeth on the regular, it has been revealed that Meghan will be undertaking Princess lessons.

Yes, really. The former Suits actress is set to attend six months of princess lessons to perfect her approach to the role – everything from lessons about Ascot to banquet etiquette. and while unlike Mia Thermopolis, she won’t have Julie Andrews to turn to, one of her royal aides is set to stand in and teach her all things royal.

But what will she study?

‘In terms of etiquette, there may be some advice on “British” traditions such as tea parties and formal banquets,’ The English Manner Chief Executive Alexandra Messervy explained to InStyle of Meghan’s princess lessons. ‘There will be discussions on Royal Ascot and key events in the royal year, public outings, garden parties – which she did yesterday with aplomb grace and looked super—and I don’t think much else. Her Royal Highness has already shown she has film star poise and grace.’

Happy studying, Meghan.

17 Sneakers You’ll See Everywhere in 6 Months

For sneaker obsessives like me, the end of fashion month is a bit of a letdown. After watching an assortment of new shoe styles make their way down the runways in Paris, New York, Milan, and London, we now have to wait. Those chunky-soled Guccis and sleek Pradas won’t actually be available until fall rolls around (and even then, it’s a race to snag the buzziest styles).

So even though there’s no instant gratification, we can start eyeing the styles that will sit on our closet shelves soon enough. Below, I’ve outlined 17 of my favorite sneakers to debut this season. My tip: Start saving up for your favorites now, that way you’ll be ready to add these styles to your cart as soon as they’re available.

These graphic sneakers feature some creative lacing details.
Leave it to Gucci to take embellishment to the next level. For fall, the Italian fashion house debuted hiking-boot style sneakers with a gem-encrusted overlay.
Love a little sparkle? How about a slip-on? Than these sneakers will be your go-to for Fall.
Givenchy when dark and edgy for Fall, offering up a high-top chunky soled sneaker in all black.
French label A.P.C.  keeps things simple with these understated dad sneakers.
If you’re a fan of sock sneakers, you’ll want to check out (and keep tabs on) these simple, streamlined sneakers from Stella McCartney.
One part sneaker, one part snowboard binding, these shoes definitely aren’t for the faint of heart (or the clumsy). 
Love to mix and match colors? Meet your new favorite sneaker for fall.
Take a trip into the future with Prada’s alien-like sock sneakers that come in a neon green but can also be found in a more minimalist white.
A styling trick to steal from these cozy Acne sneakers? Try stepping on the heel and tying the laces around your ankle if you’re really keen to mix things up. 
While the streets were full of show-goers wearing the brand’s signature Triple S sneaker, there’s a remix (featuring two pairs of laces) to keep an eye out for fall.
Virgil Abloh continues his partnership with Nike, debuting new and notable designs on the runway in Paris.
A classic clean low-top gets new boho details for fall. 
First it was sparkly sneakers, now JW Anderson is reimagining his partnership with converse with these shiny multi-colored high tops.
Never one to shy from making a statement (google platform Uggs and you’ll see what we mean), Christopher Kane goes for grandpa sneakers and then adds sparkles and a spring.

Kim Kardashian West Is ‘Over’ Her Blonde Hair, 6 Months After Changing Her Look

Kim Kardashian West may be prepping another big hair change!

The 37-year-old Keeping Up with the Kardashians star seems to have grown tired of her light locks.

I can’t even tell you how over my blonde hair I am!” the KKW Beauty mogul tweeted on Saturday.

This comes six months after the new mom-of-three debuted her major hair change — first going platinum during New York Fashion Week back in September. Since then her waist-length hair has gone through a variety of changes thanks to hair artist Chris Appleton. She chopped it into a sharp bobwent back to extensions, and altered the color ever-so-slightly throughout.

In January, Kardashian West — who rose to fame with her dark locks – admitted she wouldn’t be going back to her old color “for a few of weeks,” since it was newly bleached.

“Maybe when the roots grow out too much,” she told a fan on Twitter. “It will be years before I go blonde again so have to enjoy it.”

She appeared to be thinking about ditching the blonde locks and returning to her natural hair color months earlier, too, posting a series of throwback photos. “Dark hair for the new year?” she captioned one shot.

Whatever she decides, the mother of three is sure to receive her husband Kanye West’s input — whether she takes his suggestions or not.

After all, it was West who inspired her to give the lighter shade another shot after her brief experiment with blonde back in 2013.

“Kanye likes the blonde,” Kardashian told PEOPLE in 2014. “I was talking about this yesterday actually with Kanye. He asked if I would ever go back to blonde,” she said.

“I always ask his opinion on everything and he always helps me put together my looks,” she added of the rapper, who she credits with making her style more distinct.

When Kardashian West debuted her icy white platinum hue at the end of 2017, she even joked on Instagram that she did it with Kanye in mind. “I’d go blonde for that D,” she captioned an shot of herself with her new hair.

What the Coolest Girls Will Be Wearing for the Next Three Months

Even though we’re jumping at the chance to try out spring’s coolest trends, sometimes the chilly weather just won’t permit wearing flirty dresses and breezy tops. So what’s a fashion girl to do when there are so many fresh trends to start wearing already?

To help beat the remaining winter blues, we’re doubling up on bright, fresh springtime pastels. Though the outfits ahead could technically be worn in winter (especially if you live somewhere like LA), fashion girls are already swapping their dark neutrals for a seasonal color palette fit for the first day of spring.

Plaid pants get a stylish makeover in baby blue and yellow. This look is giving us major ’90s nostalgia due to the fuzzy sweater and chunky sneakers.
Stripes always seem to be a springtime classic along, with florals. (Groundbreaking, we know). But there’s something about graphic, abstract stripes that feel really modern and cool.
Not a pastel type of person? Test out bold primary colors like cobalt blue and canary yellow for a fresh look with a bit of edge.
Once again, a primary color palette is totally winning us over here. We love the combination of blue, yellow, and red grounded with classic black.
If you’re going to pick just one spring-inspired color to wear right now, may we suggest yellow? The bright shade is a bit unexpected which makes it that much cooler. Test it out in a fun pair of trousers and keep the rest of the look neutral.
Okay, this wouldn’t be a spring outfit roundup if we didn’t include the color lilac. There’s no doubt that this shade of muted purple is the It color of the season.
Like we’ve said before, yellow is one of the coolest colors to try for spring. Pick one piece to wear the color in and pair it with black for a bold, cool-girl look.
The suiting trend is reimagined when rendered in vibrant fuschia. This playful statement-making set couldn’t be further from the traditional stuffy suit.
Mark our words: Cargo pants are back. (Shocking, yes, but we’re into it.) When paired with tough combat boots and a graphic sweater, the loose-fitting pants make for a casual combo that Kendall Jenner and Kaia Gerber would approve of.
To make any look spring-ready, pick up a fun bag like this bright-yellow Gucci one that speaks for itself.
Ready to test out the season’s freshest colors? Dip your toes in by trying out a look similar to this one. Throw on a bright jacket over your otherwise toned-down outfit, or go into full-on spring mode by layering bright blues with yellows and reds.

Bobby Brown Says Bobbi Kristina Died Months Before Public Knew

We’re learning MORE from Bobby Browns recent sit down with Us Weekly. One of the things he did was give conflicting dates about Bobbi Kristina’s passing, leading some to believe she died long before the family announced it to the public.

Instagram Photo

Brown died from lobar pneumonia on July 26, 2015, after being in a coma for nearly six months. However, according to Bobby, his daughter actually died three days before his birthday (Feb.5th), which would have been February 2, 2015.

“We do our private things to honor her,” he said. “She passed away three days before my birthday, so we definitely honor her at all times,” he said, noting that he would like for fans to remember Bobbi Kristina as someone who “was talented, beautiful and loved life.”

A possible explanation to the date confusion was reported by ILOSM:

Bobbi Kristina was found in her bathtub, unconscious with a concoction of several drugs in her system on January 31, 2015. After doctors determined she had “significantly diminished” brain function, they placed her in a medically induced coma and told Bobby Brown that chances of her fully recovering would be “a miracle.” By February 2, 2015, it was reported that Bobbi Kristina was relocated to Emory University Hospital, she remained in a coma and on a medical ventilator. Thus, Bobby’s statement that ‘she died three days before his birthday,’ adds up.

“She was a beautiful young lady. And what she wanted to do with her life, I wish everybody could have seen,” Brown exclusively told Us Weekly of the late daughter he shared with ex-wife Whitney Houston. “Music, entertainment. She was better than me. She was better than her mother.”

After Bobbi’s passing, Brown created the non-profit organization Bobby Kristina Serenity House, which raises awareness about domestic violence and provides housing and aid to victims.

“I just think people should be aware that they have someplace to go. When you are going through bad times and you are going through being abused, Bobbi Kristina’s Serenity House is there for you,” Bobby Brown told Us. “That’s the easiest way I can say it. It’s too much. Too many women and too many men are being hurt by this disease that people have, abusing people. It’s just not right. I need to do something about it.”

Meanwhile, on March 4, Bobby will host the Celebration of Serenity Gala, which would have also been Bobbi Kristina’s 25th birthday.

After loss, I didn’t have sex with my husband for 6 months 

by

Melissa Willets

posted in Parenting

Two weeks after my D&E, my doctor informed me, “You are cleared to have intercourse.” I remember looking across the desk at him through dead eyes. “I don’t feel like having sex,” I said flatly. He smiled and remarked, “You may change your mind.”

Except I didn’t.

Then, weeks later, I had a saline sonogram to ensure my uterus looked healthy, in case I wanted to try and get pregnant again. “Refrain from intercourse for about 5 days,” my doctor advised. Inside I laughed. Oh, I’d been refraining. In fact, I felt like my sex drive died right along with my baby. Right along with that part of me that would ever feel like I deserved happiness again.

Now, six months after losing the baby I’d longed for for years, my husband and I only recently made love. It was quick; it was because I felt like it was time. It wasn’t passionate or special.

But we are closer than ever.

Sex after loss takes on a new meaning

Losing a child affects a marriage deeply. There were days I thought it ruined us. That we’d lose our family too. Working through those devastating moments, when I looked at him and truly believed we had nowhere to go from here, slowly revealed a new level of love. I now see a man who stands by me during the darkest times life can serve up. Through hopelessness and despair and a depression so deep that walking across a room felt impossible.

On the other side of all of that is a bond so strong that it survived the longest romantic dry spell our marriage has seen in 10 years.

Not that we were doing it all the time before our loss. With three children, the reality is that making time for intimacy wasn’t always on the top of our, ahem, to-do list.

But now, as I continue to work on putting my life back together, I still can’t wrap my mind around returning to our former married maybe-not-even-so-exciting sex life. How can we just casually jump back in bed, and resume the act that created this situation in the first place? How can I let go of all my grief long enough to enjoy sex again? How can I allow myself to experience pleasure in the midst of my pain?

These questions and more swirl around in my head every time I even consider letting a rare smooch session turn into more. Every time a cuddle starts to feel like an opportunity to let my hands wander. The moment I feel a pang of what-if, it’s struck down by the knowledge that things are different now. I am different now.

The few times I’ve given in, I feel like a scared teenager again, sans the raging hormones of desire, slowly, tenuously letting my husband kiss me. He’s holding me close, he’s stroking my hair. That’s as far as I let him go most nights.

Maybe next time, I think. To me, that’s progress from where I started, completely closed off to the idea of intimacy.

For now, I’m lucky to have a man who is satisfied with being married to a woman who chooses to just keep going. Who, just this weekend, felt up for having friends over. Who made a joke the other day. Who smiles almost every day.

I’m lucky my husband isn’t pressuring me, and that every time the subject of sex comes up, and I get teary-eyed and apologize for not feeling like I want to, he smiles at me with kind eyes and says “Whenever you are ready.”

He’ll wait for me. As if this were a new relationship; because it kinda is. Now, we are a couple who lost a baby. One day I hope we are a couple who lost a baby and has a steamy sex life. We will be two people who made it through a devastating storm, and survived. And finally feel ready to celebrate the sh*t out of that.

When did you feel ready to have sex again after loss?

Patton Oswalt Fell ‘Head Over Heels’ for Bride Meredith Salenger Months Before Meeting in Person

Patton Oswalt is still basking in that newlywed glow.

The actor, 48, gushed about his new bride, Meredith Salenger, during Wednesday’s Jimmy Kimmel Live!, which marked his first appearance since tying the knot with his second wife. He even wore his wedding suit for the late-night program!

“I married Meredith Salenger this amazing actress and she and our wedding planner, it was like watching two people plan a bank heist,” Oswalt recalled of the planning process. “Being the groom is the best. You are a prop that eats appetizers. That’s all you are. You’re just there and they tell you where to go.”

The couple said their “I dos” in front of family and friends at the Jim Henson Studios in Los Angeles on Nov. 4, a little over a year after Oswalt’s wife Michelle McNamara died unexpectedly in her sleep in April 2016. The couple have an 8-year-old daughter Alice.

Oswalt and Salenger announced their engagement in July.

RELATED GALLERY: Inside Patton Oswalt and Meredith Salenger’s Star-Studded Wedding

“ met online. We met through mutual friend Martha Plimpton and she threw a dinner party and she invited both of us but we never met – I couldn’t go because of some travel,” Oswalt recalled of how he missed out on being introduced to his future wife.

“And Meredith messages me the next day and says ‘You missed some amazing lasagna last night dude.’ That was on Feb. 28. We started talking, we didn’t meet face to face until May 20,” the father of one explained.

“It was very Victorian-like, exchanging letters kind of romance. Every night we would write about life, politics, books, it was all this deep stuff you do after the date. By the time we met on our first date I was so head over heels,” he added.

Following the nuptials, Salenger, 47, told PEOPLE exclusively how she strongly believed it was McNamara who orchestrated the meeting from above.

“When I first starting talking with Patton on Facebook, it was just sort of witty banter. There was nothing to it, but as I started getting to know him better, I looked up Michelle on Facebook and I saw that we had like 15 mutual friends,” she said.

“One of them was my best friend since 7th grade. I called her and was like, ‘Tell me about Michelle.’ She was best friends with Michelle after college. She was like, ‘I loved her. She’s amazing. She’s so funny and smart,’ ” Salenger recalled.

Jimmy Kimmel Live! airs weeknights at 11:35 p.m. (ET) on ABC.

Social Security’s full retirement age will rise by 2 months in 2018

If you’re planning to start collecting Social Security soon, you’ll have to wait a bit longer in 2018 to reach full retirement age (FRA).

RELATED: 14 things to know about Social Security in 2018

Full retirement age is going up

The arrival of 2018 will bring with it several changes on the Social Security front.

Among the new developments, you should plan on staying on the job an additional two months before you reach your FRA this year.

Since 2005, the FRA has been 66. But as of January 1, 2017, the FRA has been on a long, slow climb.

Beginning in 2018, people born in 1956 must wait until they are 66 years and 4 months old to receive 100% of their Social Security benefit.

That pushes the full retirement age later by two months versus this year.

Those who were born in 1955 only have to wait until they are 66 years and two months to claim full benefits in 2017.

So if workers who turn 62 in 2018 opt to take benefits as soon as they can next year, they’ll get a monthly benefit that’s reduced by about 30%.

The Social Security Administration Amendments of 1983 signed by President Reagan call for the FRA to “increase by two months a year for persons reaching age 62 in 2017-22,” further noting that it “will be fixed at age 67 for those reaching age 62 after 2022.”

Here’s a chart from the Social Security Administration that lays it all out:

Social Security: Full retirement age rising to 67

This slow increase in the full retirement age presents a challenge now that Americans are living longer and saving less.

Sadly, more than 56% of us have less than $ 1,000 saved, and half of us live paycheck to paycheck.

How to boost benefits checks before collecting Social Security

If you have some time left before you start claiming your Social Security benefits, consider the following:

Play the waiting game

In the past, it was very common to retire and take Social Security at 62. But every year you wait after 62, you have an imputed return of 8% per year on your lifetime benefit. So if you wait from 62 to 70, the amount that Social Security pays climbs dramatically. (Benefits no longer increase after 70.)

Use an online calculator to help!

AARP’s interactive calculator allows you to pop in your specifics and it will give you a decision tree to help you figure out the optimal time to take Social Security. Check it out to help yourself or a parent.

If you are looking for a more comprehensive approach to give you specifics on when it would be best to start drawing on your Social Security benefits, check out the Maximize my Social Security tool. There are different levels of analysis that you can choose, but $ 40 gives you access to sophisticated software that helps determine the best time to start receiving your checks. They also offer a money-back guarantee if you aren’t satisfied.

Boost your earnings today

What you get from Social Security has everything to do with your 35 highest earning years. So you might consider negotiating a raise or taking on a second job.

We can help you on the latter front. Our work from home guide has legitimate ways you can earn some extra money. None of the sites listed will make you rich, but they will help you supplement your existing income.

How can I play catch-up on my own retirement savings?

Know how much you’ll need to retire

By age 35, you should have two times your annual salary saved up for retirement, according to the latest numbers from Fidelity Investments.

Five years later, you should have three times your annual salary. And on and on, until you reach 67 when you should have 10 times your annual salary saved.

Laid out visually, the Fidelity guidelines for individuals look like this:

  • By 35, save two times your gross annual salary
  • By 40, save three times your gross annual salary
  • By 45, save four times your gross annual salary
  • By 50, save six times your gross annual salary
  • By 55, save seven times your gross annual salary
  • By 60, save eight times your gross annual salary
  • By 67, save 10 times your gross annual salary

Make extra contributions to retirement savings if you’re over 50

If you’re coming into the savings game kind of late, you can play catch-up. You have to be 50 or over to do this, but here’s how it works:

  • If you have a 401(k), 403(b), most 457 plans or the federal government’s Thrift Savings Plan, you can make an extra $ 6,000 contribution. (That’s on top of the existing $ 18,000 contribution limit for these plans.)
  • For those with IRAs, your can contribute an additional $ 1,000, for a grand total of $ 6,500 in annual contributions.

Be sure to work with fee-only financial planners

If you decide to enlist the services of an advisor, be sure he or she is what’s called ‘fee only.’ That means they earn their income on an hourly or ongoing basis, not on commissions from the investments they steer you towards.

Visit NAPFA.org (The National Association for Personal Financial Advisors) for ongoing fee-only help planning for retirement or GarrettPlanningNetwork.com for one-time advice on an hourly basis.

RELATED: Know the right questions to ask of a fee-only financial planner

Strive to reduce debt in your life

Being debt free buys you so much freedom. And today it’s easier to become debt free than at any time in recent memory because of dirt cheap interest rates. If you’re still paying high interest rates, like on a credit card, get a lower interest card if you can qualify and transfer the balance.

Look at that box on your monthly statement and see what you’d have to pay to be debt free in three years. Then resolve to pay that each and every month. You need to budget money to pay down your debt just as you would budget for rent or a mortgage or a car payment.

Beware of this Social Security phone scam!

Britney Spears And Charlie Ebersol Reportedly Split After 8 Months Of Dating

Britney Spears is single, according to Us Weekly.

The magazine reports that the singer and boyfriend Charlie Ebersol have split. The two started dating in October 2014.

No word on what went down between the two, but Us Weekly points out that Spears has already deleted all photos of Ebersol, who is the son of “Saturday Night Live” co-creator Dick Ebersol, from her Instagram account, though it seems she hasn’t gotten around to it on Twitter just yet.

In addition to erasing him from her social media, it seems like the 33-year-old singer might be throwing a bit of shade her ex’s way as well. On Sunday, Spears posed in a bikini next to a male friend and she captioned the photo, “So nice to be home! Nothing like Louisiana boys.”

The Huffington Post has reached out to Spears’ rep for comment.
