It’s Never Too Late To Get In Shape – Find Out How To Get Started

Age ain’t nothing but a number and that includes those who are trying to get in shape. Fitness trainer to the Obamas, Cornell McClellan says you can start from where you are and go from there. If you’ve seen the viral video of a morbidly obese man working out at high intensity or the video of a woman working out from a chair, you can do it, too. Here’s what you need to know to take that first step.

 IF YOU’VE BEEN OUT OF SHAPE FOR A WHILE OR HAVE FALLEN OFF THE WAGON, WHAT’S THE BEST WAY TO START?

Get a physical first to make sure that it is safe to get back into a fitness routine. Walking and even some strength training is a great start, but always start slow. Give your body a chance to acclimate; don’t just jump into boot camp.

 IS IT EVER TOO LATE FOR A WOMAN TO GET MICHELLE OBAMA ARMS? WHAT’S THE BEST WAY TO DO IT?

It is never too late. Be prepared to make life changes; in terms of both activity and eating. This is about lifestyle changes not quick fixes.

WHEN IT COMES TO CHANGING YOUR BODY, IS DIET OR EXERCISE MORE IMPORTANT?

Diet and exercise are like air and water; they are equally important.

 WHAT DO YOU DO IF YOUR KNEES OR BACK HURT WHEN YOU WORK OUT?

If you have been examined by a physician and know what your dos and don’ts are; stay away from those particular movements that give you pain.  You do not want to work through pain.  There are modifications that you can do that can keep you from pain.

 WHAT ARE YOUR THOUGHTS ON A PLANT-BASED, MEATLESS DIET?

I have been on a plant-based meatless diet for over 25 years. I think it is great and how we were created to eat.

HOW CAN YOU  CURB CRAVINGS FOR UNHEALTHY FOOD?

Eat on schedule; every 2.5 to 3 hours. Plan balanced meals and snacks and eat only what you planned.  Always have a water bottle with you so that you stay hydrated.

 IF YOU HAVE LIMITED TIME IN YOUR SCHEDULE, DO YOU SUGGEST WEIGHT TRAINING OR CARDIO EXERCISE?

Weight training but add in calisthenics so you get some cardio.

WHAT ARE YOUR THOUGHTS ON PEOPLE WHO TRY THE LATEST DIET TREND AND LOSE WEIGHT TOO FAST? ISN’T THAT HARMFUL TO YOUR BODY?

I believe in a lifestyle change not quick fixes.

 FOR THOSE WHO MAY WORK LONG OR UNUSUAL HOURS, WHAT ARE SOME AT-HOME EXERCISES TO ACHIEVE RESULTS?

There is a long list including jumping jacks, pushups, burpees, wall sits… but it is not just the exercise. The repetition, combination of exercises and the form are all important too. Join us for The Immortal Body Workout.  This online class is easily accessible anytime and anywhere.  You will learn a variety of exercise and combinations of exercises to achieve results.

 WHAT VITAMINS SHOULD WE TAKE DAILY AS WE GET OLDER?

What is recommended by your physician.

 WHAT SHOULD WE EAT BEFORE AND AFTER A WORK OUT?

Depends on what time of day and what you are doing.  For example, if it is the first thing in the morning and you are only doing cardio, you can not eat and just drink fluid.  If it is the first thing in the morning and you are strength training, you should have carbs and protein.

Certified fitness consultant and personal trainer Cornell McClellan has been a personal trainer to the Obama family for more than two decades. He’s credited as the creator of Michelle Obama’s toned, muscular arms. Mcclellan is the owner of Naturally Fit, a training and wellness company with a mission is to show how fitness can be achieved through a holistic approach that enhances the mind, strengthens the body and nurtures the spirit.

MLB Star Mike Trout Wears Late Brother-in-law’s Name on Jersey a Week After He Dies at 24

Los Angeles Angels star Mike Trout is honoring his late brother-in-law Aaron Cox.

The 27-year-old athlete, who hasn’t played since Aug. 1, stepped out on the field Friday at home against Houston Astros wearing a jersey with “A. Cox” on the back.

Cox, who was a former minor league pitcher in the Angels organization, died on Aug. 15. He was 24.

Just the day before, Trout opened up about Cox’s sudden death with an emotional dedication on Instagram.

“Aaron, words can’t describe the emotions that I’ve been feeling the past week and a half,” the outfielder captioned a photo of himself and Cox sporting black suits.

“You were more than just my brother-in-law… you were my best friend,” he wrote.

Aaron, words can’t describe the emotions that I’ve been feeling the past week and a half. You were more than just my brother-in-law… you were my best friend. You made such an impact on my life since the day I first met you. You were an amazing person inside & out that showed us all how to live life to the fullest. Seeing and hearing about your impact on other people are all things that made me a better person every single day. The things we have done together like hunting trips, family vacations, golfing, fishing, and all the fun times we had together I will cherish forever… you brought so much happiness and joy to my life every time I was with you. You will always be remembered for your crazy dance moves and your big smile and how much you cared for people and our family. You were always the life of the party and you were always making people laugh. You were a great kid and it kills me to know that you are gone… I can’t thank you enough for what you have meant to me over these last 11 years. I know you will be watching over me now that you are gone, I promise to take care of your sister and watch over your whole family. Heaven got a great one and I know I will see you again someday… I love you bro!!!!

“You made such an impact on my life since the day I first met you. You were an amazing person inside & out that showed us all how to live life to the fullest. Seeing and hearing about your impact on other people are all things that made me a better person every single day,” Trout continued.

The Angels star later recounted the many memories he and Cox shared.

“The things we have done together like hunting trips, family vacations, golfing, fishing and all the fun times we had together I will cherish forever… you brought so much happiness and joy to my life every time I was with you,” he said.

“Heaven got a great one and I know I will see you again some day… I love you bro!!!!” Trout concluded.

Funeral services for Cox were held Wednesday in the Dorchester section of Maurice River Township. Cox’s cause of death is not clear at this time.

Cox is the brother of Jessica Trout, who married Mike in December 2017.

Wrestlers Sue Ohio State Over Late Doctor’s Sexual Misconduct

(COLUMBUS, Ohio) — A lawsuit by four former Ohio State University wrestlers alleges the school failed to stop “rampant sexual misconduct” by a now-dead team doctor despite being repeatedly informed about his behavior.

In the federal lawsuit filed Monday, four Ohio men listed as John Does say Richard Strauss sexually assaulted or harassed them in the late 1980s or 1990s. The wrestlers’ lawsuit seeks unspecified monetary damages.

The university didn’t immediately return messages seeking comment Tuesday.

An independent investigation about Strauss began after such allegations were raised earlier this year. Ohio State says the allegations involve men from 14 sports

Strauss worked for the university for two decades, retiring in 1998. He killed himself in 2005.

His family has said they were “shocked and saddened” to learn of the allegations.

Why It’s Never Too Late to Buy Bitcoin

I get some version of this sentiment every single day I talk to someone not into cryptocurrency about buying into it: “I missed it. It’s too late.”

IT’S NEVER TOO LATE TO BUY BITCOIN AND GET INTO CRYPTOCURRENCY!

This post has been brewing in me for some time. All the looky-loos who are feeling a serious case of FOMO, as bitcoin and cryptocurrency have dominated the imagination of the investment class, see four-figure prices for a whole bitcoin and think it’s just too late to make money in crypto. As a person who is making money every single day in modest amounts with cryptocurrency, I can assure you that it’s never too late.

bitcoin

 

THE EVIDENCE: 1. Bitcoin, and most of the best cryptocurrencies, are deflationary assets, meaning that they only appreciate over time, mostly due to the limited nature of their supply. bitcoiin

Bitcoin, the very first cryptocurrency, was created as a reaction against the bailouts brought on in the aftermath of the Great Recession. This is why there will only be 21 million bitcoin ever, produced at a steady, predictable rate over time until 2140. Considering 16.7 million bitcoin have already been produced, the fight for the remaining 4.3M new bitcoin over the next century will be an expensive one. Considering an estimated 4M bitcoin have never moved and are assumed to be “lost” to early creators’ deaths, every millionaire in the US couldn’t own a whole bitcoin of the 12M or so in circulation if they wanted to. GET IN!

2. Bitcoin block rewards will keep “halving” over time. This means that the amount of bitcoin produced from the efforts of miners will see their bitcoin rewards cut in half, periodically and repeatedly, until 21 million is reached. This will make existing and future bitcoin that much more rare, that much more valuable. GET IN!

3. It’s not a bubble. For the first time in a while, consumers are leading the adoption of financial innovation instead of being led by the inherently untrustworthy, self-interested, tax-avoiding financial elite of Wall Street. In the recent past, investment banks, big commercial banks, and legislators/regulators would cook up all manner of schemes to continue to enrich themselves, largely at the expense of the middle-to-lower classes. When the weight of the financial class’ exploitation of the lower classes becomes too much to bear, we get events like the Great Recession. By having a revolution in investment coming from the ground up this time—somehow way ahead of institutional and traditional investors getting a chance to manipulate it—the rise of crypto-wealth feels far more sustainable than other investment trends of the past. GET IN!

 

bitcoin4. The dollar has lost its value. Forget inflation, a concept that bitcoin laughs at as a de facto deflationary cryptocurrency. When economists and the landed gentry of the financial class poke at bitcoin, decrying that it has “no value,” it exposes the myth of the inherent value of the U.S. dollar itself.

Besides centuries of advantage being first to market, relentless societal and institutional marketing, and the backing of the biggest army in the world to enforce it, the dollar doesn’t have any value unless we give it value. And that value is falling.

That value is falling because of the instability of executive American leadership, worldwide distrust after the financial shenanigans and money printing done to get us out of the Recession, and the gaping need for a truly stateless world reserve currency. At best, the American president is unqualified for a job he ascertained under a cloud of suspicion and foreign interference. While many Americans lost their jobs and their homes, investment banks who gambled away their pensions were bailed out, and are even stronger than ever. Add in the fact that the purchasing power of the US dollar has fallen some 96% over the last hundred years. Since 1976, the dollar has been off of the gold standard, which underpinned the value of the currency to ounces of gold, yet still, the world considers the dollar the world’s reserve currency. With all these factors going against it, it’s a miracle the dollar is valued much at all. GET IN!

5. Bitcoin could be—should be—worth more than a million dollars per coin in our lifetime. It is opined here that a $ 1M per bitcoin valuation is well within the global money supply. As it is truly a deflationary asset, HODLers like myself tend to buy and hold rather than spend it, adding to its scarcity of demand. Also consider that bitcoin and cryptocurrencies are breaking all traditional molds of financial and FOREX investing. This article here explains how the $ 350 trillion markets for money, equities, and real estate will all be digitized by blockchain assets. We are not even at a quarter trillion in cryptocurrency market cap today. GET IN!

6. It continues to outperform all asset classes combined. The reason why we invest is to build wealth and financial security, correct? As evidenced by the chart below from an earlier post, nothing has built wealth like an investment in bitcoin over the past seven years. GET IN!

At some point, it’s not a bubble: It’s just REALITY. Welcome to our new financial reality, where you have a once-in-a-generation chance to build generational wealth. For all the reasons above and more, for the immediate future, it’s never too late to invest in cryptocurrency—and escape the financial world’s Sunken Place.

Joe Jackson buried at same cemetery as late son Michael as daughter Janet leads mourners

JOE Jackson, the father of Michael Jackson, has been buried in the same cemetery as his late superstar son.

Daughter Janet led mourners at the pop patriarch’s private funeral service on Monday.

Joe Jackson has been buried in a private funeral service in Southern California at the same cemetery as his late son Michael

A source close to the famous family said Joe was laid to rest Monday at Forest Lawn Memorial Park in Glendale, Southern California.

Jackson died last Wednesday aged 89 of stage 4 pancreatic cancer and is survived by wife Katherine, eight children and dozens of grandchildren.

He is credited as being the brains behind the Jackson 5 group which launched his son’s pop career.

Eldest son Jackie Jackson posted a photo of himself on Instagram Monday afternoon in a black suit and sunglasses while dressing one of his young twin sons in a similar suit.

Michael Jackson was entombed in 2009 in the mausoleum at the opulent cemetery that is also the final resting place of Elizabeth Taylor and Walt Disney.

TMZ reported Jackson had suffered health problems for many years, with trips to hospital in 2015 and 2016 for heart attacks and high fevers respectively.

Just days before his death, Joe sent his last tweet, featuring himself looking out across a sunset.

He captioned it: “I have seen more sunsets than I have left to see. The sun rises when the time comes and whether you like it or not the sun sets when the time comes.”

Jackson was the patriarch of one of entertainment’s most famous families and disciplined his talented kids with an iron fist.

His methods produced the Jackson 5, the King of Pop in son Michael and also helped his daughter Janet sell over 100 million records worldwide.

Michael later claimed he was so terrified of his father he would throw up at the sight of him.
Jackson fathered 10 children with his wife Katherine. As well as the Jackson 5 – Jackie, Tito, Jermaine, Marlon and Michael – he sired Rebbie, Randy, La Toya and Janet.
Brandon was born in 1957 but died within 24 hours.

An eleventh child, Joh’Vonnie Jackson, was born out of an extramarital affair.
Jackson was born to Samuel, a university professor, and Crystal Lee King, in the US state of Arkansas on July 26 1928.
He was the oldest of five children, having two brothers, Lawrence and Luther, and two sisters, Lula Mae and Verna Mae.

While pursuing a boxing career, he met his future wife, Katherine Scruse, but first married someone else before divorcing a year later.
He married Katherine in 1949 and they bought a house in Gary, Indiana, welcoming their first child, Rebbie, six months after they tied the knot.
In the early 1960s, Jackson began nurturing his growing family’s musical talents, beginning with his eldest sons Jackie, Tito and Jermaine. Later, Marlon and Michael would be welcomed to the band.
Initially called the Jackson Brothers, the group changed their name to the Jackson 5 and one of the decade’s biggest-selling acts was born.

But perhaps Jackson’s most enduring legacy will be his son Michael. A global icon, he has had a profound impact on popular culture through his music, dancing and fashion.

Albums such as Thriller, Bad and Dangerous were wildly popular both commercially and critically.

Michael, no stranger to controversy, was one of the world’s most revered popstars when he died of a drug overdose aged 50 in 2009.

He made allegations of physical and emotional abuse against his father.

During a 1993 interview with Oprah Winfrey, Michael alleged his father beat him, called him ugly and made him so scared he would vomit at the sight of him.

He said: “I love my father, but I don’t know him. Sometimes I do get angry. I don’t know him the way I’d like to know him.

“My mother’s wonderful. To me, she’s perfection. I just wish I could understand my father.”

Winfrey asked Michael why his father beat him, but he could offer no explanation.

He said: “I don’t know if I was his golden child or whatever it was. Some may call it a strict disciplinarian or whatever, but he was very strict. He was very hard. Just a look would scare you.

“There’s been times when he’d come to see me, and I would get sick. I’d start to regurgitate.”

Joe poses for a photo with a young Michael and his wife Katherine in 1973

But he remained unrepentant about the so-called “discipline”.

In 2013, Joe told CNN: “I had to be like that way because during those times, it was hard, and you have a lot of gangs there, you know, in the area where we were living.

“This was Gary, Indiana, and I had to make sure that they didn’t get in any type of trouble, and things of that sort.

“I’m glad I was tough, because look what I came out with. I came out with some kids that everybody loved all over the world. And they treated everybody right.

“You know, Michael, he was a nice guy.

“The world (doesn’t) know anything too much about Michael as far as how he was brought up. But he was brought up. I made sure that he respected the older people.”

Joe’s death also comes almost exactly nine years following that of Michael’s, who died on June 25, 2009.

Taj Jackson, the grandson of Joe, said the hearts of his “entire family” are in pain following the death of the patriarch.

He tweeted: “Disgusted by some of the comments I’m reading about my grandpa Joe by those who didn’t even know him. Please don’t just regurgitate what you were spoon fed by the press.

“Joe was loved by our ENTIRE family and our hearts are in pain. Let us grieve without the nastiness. #ripthehawk.”


The Rev Jesse Jackson tweeted a tribute, writing: “Joe Jackson, brother beloved, patriarch & creator of one of the most talented American musical dynasties.

“We will remember him as long as his family’s music plays. Offering prayers and condolences to the Jackson family. #RIP #NeverCanSayGoodbye #JoeJackson.”

Jackson is survived by his wife Katherine, sons Jackie, Tito, Jermaine, Marlon and Randy and daughters Rebbie, La Toya and Janet, as well as Joh’Vonnie Jackson, who was from an extramarital affair of his.

“Daddy’s girls,” Kourtney captioned the photo on Instagram. “Happy Birthday Daddy. I miss you every day. Kim wasn’t as happy about her dress as I was.”

Rent the Runway Alters ‘Predatory’ Late Fee After Daily Beast Story

Rent the Runway has changed its late fee policy a little more than a month after The Daily Beast reported on it in April, lowering its “20-day penalty” charge for late or missing dresses from 200 percent of the retail cost of each dress to just 100 percent of the retail cost of each dress.

The women’s retailer rents designer dresses originally retailing hundreds of dollars to women across the United States for as little as $ 35 per item.

After a designated number of days, renters must return their items through a UPS store or drop box in a pre-labeled package that Rent the Runway supplies to them.

Patton Oswalt Looks Back at His Late Wife’s Serial-Killer Obsession

Gregg DeGuire/Getty

Michelle McNamara had been obsessed with cold cases since the age of 14, when the murder of a neighbor went unsolved. She eventually became a journalist and blogger, whose True Crime Diary website became sort of a clearinghouse for information about unresolved cases. “Unsolved murders became an obsession,” McNamara has said. “I was a hoarder of ominous and puzzling details.”

“Michelle became interested in these cases for two reasons,” adds her husband, actor/comedian Patton Oswalt: “Because they were cold cases, and because she could see in real time how connectivity was changing and more information was being digitized. So the combination of those two had intriguing potential.”

McNamara first became aware of the man she dubbed the Golden State Killer in 2007. From 1976 until 1986, this psychopath was responsible for 50 sexual assaults and 10 murders, first in the Sacramento area and later in Orange County, California. Also known to police as the East Area Rapist (EAR), he had disappeared from view, his identity a mystery. But his sick legend lived on. So McNamara decided to write a book about him, hoping it would help her discover his identity.

Patton Oswalt Opens Up About Late Wife Michelle McNamara’s Role in the Golden State Killer’s Arrest

NBC

Comedian Patton Oswalt spent much of his day on Wednesday celebrating the news that authorities have apparently arrested the Golden State Killer. He ended it with an appearance on Late Night with Seth Meyers that could not have been timed better.

Before she passed away in early 2016, Oswalt’s wife Michelle McNamara had been working on a book about the notorious rapist and murderer—whom she dubbed the Golden State Killer—with the aim of discovering his true identity and helping the police track him down. Earlier this year, I’ll Be Gone in the Dark was finally published and has already shot back to the top of Amazon’s best-seller list.

“I have been awake since 3 a.m.,” Oswalt confessed at the top of the segment. “So I don’t know how this segment’s going to go.” He explained that he started receiving texts and alerts early Wednesday morning with the big news. “They arrested him today,” he said. “He is in jail.”

Chad Michael Murray Finds Out If His Late Grandmother was Murdered After Years of Mystery

Chad Michael Murray had never known the cause of death of his late grandmother — until now.

In fact, there were only two people who knew what exactly happened at the time of her death: his grandmother and her husband, his late grandfather, who was accused of her murder.

On Wednesday’s episode of Hollywood Medium With Tyler Henry, Murray, 36, finally got some closure about her death.

“There’s this feeling that grandpa would’ve said or verbalized something to people before he died and after he died, his words were changed. He’s like, ‘No, I’m not taking accountability for this. This isn’t right.’ There’s something wrong here with the narrative that’s put after,” Tyler Henry, 22, told the One Tree Hill alum.

“For some reason, they’re having me talk about grandma. They’re having me talk about a fall for some reason. I don’t know what this is,” Henry explained.

“The speculation from the stories that I got from my grandfather was that he was arrested for her murder,” the actor said. “She died at 17 and she just had my mother. She was found with her hands tied behind her back, hung in the basement. So there was a fall, just in a different way.”

“And then after that, he was cleared and they didn’t really have enough evidence to say, ‘It was you that did it.’ ”

But according to Henry, Murray’s late grandmother died by suicide.

“Before I got here, there was this woman who came through who I acknowledged passing away tragically. But it came through in a way of like, taking accountability to some extent for her actions,” Henry informed the American Drifter author. “But I’m thinking that it might have been even her way of kinda trying to come through and say, ‘Hey, this is something that I’m putting more on myself.’ So, I don’t think he killed your grandmother.”

After speaking with Henry and learning the details about his late grandmother’s death, Murray revealed, “I am, without a doubt, a believer,” adding, “He’s pretty damn good at it.”

Hollywood Medium airs Wednesdays (9 p.m. ET) on E!

If you or someone you know is showing warning signs of suicide, consider contacting the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 800-273-TALK, texting the Crisis Text Line at 741741 or seeking help from a professional.

Eating Late at the Office

Here’s a question for today: if you have to work late at the office, what do you eat? Do you have a budget from the office or the client that you can order food through an app like Seamless — in which case, what do you order? Do you consciously order enough food for leftovers (for the next day’s lunch, for example) or snacks (for later that evening)? Do you have a few dinners on repeat or do you order something new every night? Is there a culture of shared food at your office (for example, people eat dinner at a common area and then return to their desk)? Is it easy to get reimbursed for food purchases or is it frowned upon as a “it must be necessary” expense?

I’ve seen a ton of different approaches here amongst friends and coworkers, from the person who prefers to pick up a fast food sandwich or soup on their own dime, to the person who orders steak dinners every night and bills the client. (For those of you who are parents who have to leave the office at a set time to do daycare pickup or relieve the nanny, but have to work after the kids are in bed, does it feel like you’ve lost a major benefit or perk?)

Psst: we’ve talked in the past about the best energy foods to keep you going on long days, snack ideas for worktaking leftovers from your business lunchsaving money on lunch, and strategic dieting while working a corporate gig.

Picture via Stencil.

 Eating late at the office: is it a never, sometime, or ALL THE TIME thing for you? A lot of different workplaces have different cultures around eating late at work -- billing the client for it -- versus just getting the heck home. What do you do? Women lawyers and other professionals discuss.

Dear Mr. President, Reboot Before It’s Too Late

Getty

Jared Kushner, both a senior adviser to and son-in-law of the president of the United States, has received a good deal of recent attention, not much of it good. There is the appearance, and possible reality, of conflict of interest given that Mr. Kushner is meeting with people in his official capacity who just happen to be in a position to alleviate his and his family’s financial stress. There is the matter of his operating without a permanent security clearance while having access to sensitive intelligence. There is the cloud of the Mueller investigation hanging over his head. There is the confusion sowed by his being granted a broad portfolio of responsibilities that overlap with the portfolios of others, including the secretary of state and the national security adviser. And there is the question of someone with so little relevant experience being handed such responsibilities in the first place.

All this makes for an untenable situation. Beyond the obvious legal questions surrounding Mr. Kushner’s activities that call out for answers, there should be concerns about how he is operating. White House staff are meant to coordinate and set policy, not carry it out. Such activities should be the purview of the departments and agencies. This, after all, was the principal lesson of the Iran-Contra scandal. (There is the special irony that this is an administration that has abolished dozens of special envoys working out of the State Department but created a super-special envoy working out of the White House.)

There is, as well, the matter of any president employing close friends and relatives in formal senior posts. Doing so should not be ruled out, per se, but a useful rule of thumb would be to do so only in those cases where they would likely be appointed to that job by some other occupant of the Oval Office.

Harry Styles Goes from the Hospital to the Late Late Show Stage as He Fills in for James Corden

The Late Late Show got a Style-ish makeover Tuesday night.

Following James Corden‘s announcement that he and his wife Julia Carey had welcomed their third child together, his good friend Harry Styles took over hosting duties on the CBS talk show.

The “Sign of the Times” singer, 23, greeted the enthusiastic audience, telling them, “I actually have some great news. Just half an hour ago, James and his wife Jules had a beautiful baby girl.”

Styles told the audience he “was just at the hospital before I came to fill in and she looks a lot like James — mainly because James looks like a giant baby.”

https://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js

While he looked at ease in his hosting duties (which included interview guests Owen Wilson, Jane Krakowski and Joel Edgerton), Styles said he was given two hours warning before stepping on the Late Late Show‘s stage.

“I was sitting at home two hours ago in this suit, obviously,” he said. “I got the call Jules was going into labor so James naturally called the funniest man he knew… he obviously wasn’t available.”

Styles and Corden, 39, have frequently collaborated together on the late night show — including a week-long residency by Styles in May in which he appeared in each episode to perform songs off his self-titled debut album.

https://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js

The former One Direction member also addressed his surprising kiss with Corden on Carpool Karaoke which had aired the night before, saying, “I would like to take the opportunity to announce that… we will also be having a baby!”

Corden announced the birth of his third child with his wife, and not Styles, via Twitter Tuesday.

“Today we welcomed a beautiful baby daughter into the world. Both she and her mother are doing great. We can’t stop smiling,” The Late Late Show host wrote. “Thank you Harry  for stepping in to host the show at 2 and a half hours notice! x x x”

Amazon delivery late again? Use this sample email to request compensation

Amazon promises its Prime members free two-day shipping on millions of items, but what happens when your package is delivered late? It’s definitely a possibility during the busy holiday season.

I learned a few weeks ago that Amazon may compensate customers when it doesn’t make its guaranteed delivery date.

RELATED: Secret Amazon Prime perk you probably don’t know about

Amazon delivery late? Here’s what you can get for free!

For example, I contacted Amazon’s customer service department about a package that showed up late and received a free month extension of my Prime benefits — just by asking politely!

When I posted my story to Clark’s Facebook page, some people said this tip also worked for them!

  • Mandee: I emailed about a late package yesterday and they refunded my money and told me to keep the package when it arrived.
  • Laurel: We have had it happen so many times they gave us a $ 40 credit on our account and extended our Prime.
  • Lori:  I tried today, they gave me a $ 10 credit to shop with.
  • Derek: I just tried this with a delayed shipping. I got something better than a free month extension. They refunded me 30% of my entire order.

How to contact Amazon about a late delivery

To reach out to Amazon about a late delivery, the first thing you need to do is visit the Contact Us page.

Below the list of your recent orders, Amazon will ask for more details about your issue. In this case, you would select “Where’s my stuff?” and “Shipment is late.”

You’ll then be given the choice to contact Amazon via email, phone or live chat.

Sample email to request compensation from Amazon

Amazon doesn’t provide compensation for all late deliveries, but it doesn’t hurt to ask. Here’s a sample email that’s nearly identical to the one that worked for me:

Dear Amazon,

I am writing about a late package delivery. I read that Amazon may compensate customers in these cases. Is there anything that you can do to make up for the inconvenience this has caused me?

Thanks in advance,

Comfortable Workwear for Late Nights

Comfortable Workwear for Late Nights at the OfficeReader A wrote in with a great question that we haven’t talked about in a few years: What is the most comfortable workwear for late nights at the office? Here’s her question:

I’m starting my first biglaw job at a business formal law firm in NYC and would love to see a post about “comfortable” workwear, especially for late nights and weekends. For example, I bought the Betabrand dress yoga pants and am a big fan. I’m curious to hear about particular fabrics or brands known for being less constricting/more “cozy”. I would love to hear thoughts as to HOW casual is appropriate for late nights (e.g. can I change into leggings and a cardigan at 1am?)

Great question. We talked about working late and professional clothes before, what comfy clothes to keep at the office, and what to wear for a weekend in the office — but it’s been a while. Readers just had a great threadjack about super comfortable work clothes, as well, so let’s discuss.

My default rules, at least when I was junior, were that a) as soon as my secretary left for the day, I could get more comfortable, whether that was to take off heels and happily pad to the printer in flip flops if I needed something, or to take off skirts or dresses entirely and put on yoga pants and a black t-shirt. A couple of points that should probably be noted: a) my office culture was one of a lot of closed doors, so it really was just trips to the printer or the bathroom where I might run into colleagues, and b) everything I changed into was black, opaque stuff — no crazy patterns or mesh cutouts. This isn’t to say that you CAN’T wear that stuff, just that when selecting the default stuff you keep at the office, maybe choose the conservative option. It’s probably also worth noting that I didn’t change into more comfortable clothes every night at work, because I didn’t consider every outfit to be so uncomfortable that I needed to get out of it, and there were definitely differences between nights when I knew I had 6 hours ahead of me of document-intensive work and would need to stretch out on my office floor surrounded by piles of paper and highlighters and notes; regular nights where I thought I could get out by 8 or 9, or was meeting friends afterwards; and nights where I was working in conference rooms with other people or running around and managing other teams where it just didn’t occur to me to go put my comfy pants on.

As for WHAT to wear, I think these days you have a lot of options in addition to the classic yoga pants, from pull-on ponte pants that might be comfortable and appropriate enough to wear all day (readers were just singing the praises of these Lands’ End ones as their “holy grail ponte pants,” as well as NYDJ ones*), to more traditional leggings (I’m a big fan of the Hue leggings* for opacity, durability, comfort, price, etc.), to comfortable jeans/jeggings. (I also have the readers to thank for turning me onto the pull-on JAG jeans*.) Know your office, but I think the conservative take on “I might be going to or coming from the gym” might also work for weekends or late nights — by “conservative take” I don’t mean sports bra + running shorts or “strappy sexy yoga bra + leggings with daring mesh cutouts” — but again, know your office. (I say “daring mesh cutouts” because there are definitely some that seem more… well, daring… but obviously it’s hard to find workout leggings without mesh cutouts of some kind these days.)

Over to you, readers: What do you consider to be comfortable workwear for late nights? What do you think is off-limits — and what factors would influence your decision to change or not change on a particular night? (Slightly off topic, BUT two more Qs: a) what’s your opinion on mesh cutouts/gym looks, and b) do you think it’s ever acceptable to put on a “comfy bra”? The closest I have in my closet to an “18-hour bra” right now is the shorter version* of this one, so I might choose that one at the beginning of the day.)

Freedom will focus on five years of Michael’s life in the 90s and was filmed before his death on Christmas Day 2016.

George met Anselmo, who was a dress designer, in a hotel lobby but he tragically died of an “Aids-related illness” in 1993.

It’s believed the documentary will air around the same time as the re-release of George’s album Listen Without Prejudice on October 20.

An insider who has seen the documentary told The Mirror that George becomes very emotional while speaking about his late boyfriend.

They said: “George speaks very movingly about Anselmo being the first love of his life and how important he was in his life.

“It is very emotional and he clearly never forgot him and left a huge ­impression on George.”

The Wham! singer penned his No 1 single, Jesus To A Child as a tribute to Anselmo.

Lil Wayne Was ‘Hours Late’ to Florida Concert but Seemed ‘Absolutely Fine’ Before Suffering Seizure

Lil Wayne was energetic and “spoke clear as day” while onstage during his concert in St. Petersburg, Florida, on Friday, a concert-goer tells PEOPLE.

The Grammy-winning rapper, 34, was reportedly rushed to the hospital over the weekend after suffering a seizure, leading to the cancellation of his upcoming show in Las Vegas, according to TMZ.

But fans who attended his performance at Jannus Live in Florida tell PEOPLE Wayne appeared in good health.

“He was jumping around the stage,” Wyatt Cheshire of Tampa, Florida, says. “He was so on point! Seemed to me he had high energy. I was close enough to see that he appeared to be drinking water bottles all night on stage, and he spoke clear as day.”

Tayler Shreve tells PEOPLE fans were “furious” to be waiting hours before the rapper finally walked out. “He walked out on the stage smoking a joint and he was literally hours late,” she says.

“He didn’t come on until 11 p.m. exactly,” Shreve, who arrived at the venue at 7:30 p.m., says. “ no opener and only some DJs onstage, and they acted like there was a DJ issue causing him to be so late.”

“He seemed absolutely fine, and performed really well,” she continues, adding that Wayne was smoking throughout the show, but that she did not see him drinking.

According to TMZ, the Grammy-winning rapper was found unconscious in his room at the Westin hotel after suffering a first attack, and then faced a second seizure after being admitted to Northwestern Memorial hospital a short time later.

Wayne’s representatives confirmed to the site that he had suffered multiple seizures. On the advice of physicians, he’s currently resting. His camp has not immediately replied to PEOPLE’s request for comment.

The rapper’s 18-year-old daughter, Reginae Carter, took to Twitter on Monday to assure worried fans that her father was “doing fine.”

“My dad is doing fine everyone ! Thanks for the concerns. you guys are amazing,” she wrote.

She added in a follow-up tweet: “Oh yeah … & don’t believe everything you hear.”

Wayne, who battles the neurological disorder epilepsy, has been hospitalized numerous times over the years due to his seizures. In July 2016, he cancelled another appearance in Vegas, and the previous June he suffered an attack on his private jet, which required an emergency landing. It was a repeat of a similar scary incident that took place in 2012.

One seizure in 2013 was nearly fatal, landing him in the Intensive Care Unit in Los Angeles.

Anthony Scaramucci Will Be a Guest on The Late Show With Stephen Colbert

Former White House communications director Anthony Scaramucci will appear as a guest on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert next week.

The controversial financier and political figure will chat with Colbert on Monday, Aug. 14, the host announced on Twitter Wednesday. “This is just a heads up for our censors to get ready!” he said in the tweet.

Scaramucci stepped down from the communications director role just ten days after the announcement of his appointment by President Donald Trump. The move was likely prompted by a profane interview given to the New Yorker in which Scaramucci made obscene, expletive-laden statements about members several members of the Trump Administration.

Trump fired Scaramucci after newly-appointed Chief of Staff John Kelly made the recommendation. His tenure lasted less than two weeks.

Angelina Jolie on How Her Late Mother Influenced Her Own Parenting: ‘I Try to Lead by Example’

 Angelina Jolie opened up about her late mother, French-American actress Marcheline Bertrand, in a new French interview with journalist and longtime friend Marianne Pearl for Elle France.

In the interview, which appears in the current issue of the magazine but took place in April, Jolie, 41, spoke candidly with Pearl about how she strives to be an example for her six children just as Bertrand had done before she died from cancer in January 2007 at age 56.

“She would have thrived as a grandmother,” Jolie said when asked what she tells her kids about Bertrand. Jolie shares her children with estranged husband Brad Pitt — Maddox, 15, Pax, 13, Zahara, 12, Shiloh, 10, and 8-year-old twins Vivienne and Knox.

The legacy Bertrand bequeathed to her daughter lives on in full force both in Jolie’s life and in the lives of her kids.

“I know how much she would have contributed to their lives and I am sad they will miss out on that,” she said. “I would give anything for her to be with me at this time. I’ve needed her. I talk to her often in my mind and try to think what she might say and how she might guide me.”

Bertrand, who had small roles in movies — including 1983’s The Man Who Loved Women — raised Jolie and brother Haven by herself after divorcing their father, Oscar-winning actor Jon Voight, when Jolie was a toddler.

“It is the greatest gift and responsibility,” Jolie said about being a mother of six. “It means doing everything that you can to live by your values and try to be an example to your children.”

Jolie has previously opened up about how she keeps her mother’s memory alive, including her decision to be the face of new perfume from Guerlain, her mother’s favorite perfume house. “It spoke to her, as it does to me, of beauty, history, and quality; one of the oldest perfume houses in the world, from France, a country I love and feel connected to,” Jolie explained to Marie Claire in April about her first international beauty campaign in a decade.

But for Jolie, the campaign isn’t only about fragrance. A longtime humanitarian, Jolie serves as Special Envoy for the UN Refugee Agency, and she has made sure her partnership with Guerlain is just as charitable as it is beautiful. In January, a Guerlain representative confirmed to PeopleStyle that on top of being the face of the product, she would donate her entire salary from the campaign to one of her own charities.

“I try to lead by example, being conscious of others and being responsible. And to help them have a broader view of the world,” Jolie also told French Elle about how she shares her passion of being very involved politically with her kids.

“But really the only way I know to raise them is to really listen. It’s perhaps the most important thing any parent can do. They are resilient children but they are children, and as much as they need help to understand the hard truths in life they also need what we all need – protection and love,” she said.

This year for Mother’s Day in the U.S., Jolie celebrated the holiday with her second oldest son Pax at Los Angeles hotspot TAO Asian Bistro. Pax was able to enjoy some quality time with his mom on her special day as they enjoyed dinner without his other siblings.

‘Late Show’ Packs Donald Trump’s Suitcase For His First Foreign Trip

Tic Tacs? Check. Golf balls? Check. Photograph of Russian President Vladimir Putin? Check.

On Friday, “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert” imagined just what Donald Trump packed in his suitcase for his first trip overseas as president.

There’s no sign of any steaks, though. Presumably because the caterers preparing his meals in Saudi Arabia have already got that covered. 

Find out what else Trump “packed” in the clip above.

Prince Harry Reveals He Entered Therapy After 2 Years of ‘Total Chaos’ in His Late 20s

Prince Harry spoke candidly about normalizing mental health struggles  — including his own unprocessed grief after the loss of his mother — with the Telegraph‘s Bryony Gordon in the first episode of her new podcast Mad World.

“I’ve spent most of my life saying ‘I’m fine’ … and most of us aren’t up for going that deep. So today I’m OK. I’m a little bit nervous. I’m a little bit tight in the chest but otherwise fine,” Harry, 32, revealed during their half-hour conversation, which also discussed his mental health charity, Heads Together, with Prince William and Princess Kate.

Harry also said that losing his mom Princess Diana in 1997 on the “public platform” affected his personal and public life, and consequently his mental health.

“I can safely say that losing my mom at the age of 12 and therefore shutting down all of my emotions for the last 20 years has had quite a serious effect on not only my personal life but also my work as well.”

He continued, “My way of dealing with it was sticking my head in the sand, refusing to ever think about my mum because why would that help?”

After years not thinking about it and being “a problem” through a lot of his 20s, he says he experienced two years of “total chaos.” So with the “huge support” of his brother when he was 28, he began seeking professional help, telling Gordon he saw a therapist “more than a couple of times.” He also credited boxing as a coping mechanism.

“I was on the verge of punching someone,” he revealed.

Now, the prince says he is in a “good place” — and already a godfather, he admitted he would love to have kids. (He is getting serious with American girlfriend Meghan Markle, after all.)

“Because of the process that I’ve been through over the last 2½-3 years, I’ve now been able to take my work seriously, be able to take my private life seriously as well, and be able to put blood, sweat and tears into the things that really make a difference,’ he said.

Royal or not, “No matter who you are, the conversation has to be the beginning,” Harry said.

Kim Goes Off After Kourtney and Khloe Make Her Trainer Run Late: ‘This Is So Rude’

The Kardashian sisters are having a difficult time keeping up with each other’s schedules.

On Saturday, time management problems caused a light-hearted social media rift between Kim Kardashian West and her sisters Kourtney and Khloé Kardashian. Kardashian West shared several Snapchat videos to express her discontent with her sisters, who started their training session 30 minutes late, which led to the trainer being late for Kardashian West’s session.

“So me and my friend Nikki are waiting for Joe to get here because my sisters’ workout ran 30 minutes late,” she said. “Thanks a——-.”

The 36-year-old star got even more frustrated and put the snow bunny Snapchat filter to send this message: “Okay, seriously, Kourtney and Khloe: f— you. This is so rude. I have been sitting in my garage waiting for the trainer for 30 minutes. I do have a life.”

When Joe the trainer finally made his appearance, Kardashian West’s snark continued.

“Oh look who decided to show up!” she said. “Look who decided to show up. Who was late? … Tell me, Joe. Who was late?”

Joe finally admitted the culprit of her sisters’ tardy workout session: Kourtney.

“Oh, Kourtney. Okay,” Kardashian West said, before continuing her Snapchat story with her workout.

And the other half of the story? Let’s refer to fitness buff Khloé’s Snapchat. While Kardashian West not-so-patiently waiting for her training time, Khloé called out her older sister.

“The queen of being late for workouts,” Khloé, 32, announced, panning her camera to her 37-year-old sister. “Our workout started 30 minutes ago.”

“You’ve been hanging out with me in the kitchen!” Kourtney said in the clip, defending herself.

“I’ve been waiting for you!” Khloé retorted.

By Sunday afternoon, it appeared as though everyone got in their workout and moved on with their day. Kim hung out with her son Saint West and Khloé enjoyed a protein shake.

‘Late Turkey Dance’! Pink Shows Off Growing Baby Bump in Instagram Video

Pink was grooving and shaking this Thanksgiving.

On Friday, the singer shared a Boomerang video of her growing baby bump, just weeks after announcing that she’s expecting her second child with husband Carey Hart.

“Late turkey dance love from The Harts  #gratitude #loveyourself #loveeachother #morepie,” she captioned the video.

Earlier this month, Pink took to Instagram to share a photo of her and her daughter for her pregnancy announcement.

“Suprise!” Pink wrote alongside a photo with the couple’s 5-year-old daughter Willow Sage. The mother-daughter duo wore coordinating off-white ensembles and brown hats, and Willow’s head rested on her mom’s growing baby bump.

“You see how you were. When you watch this bundle full of love and light that’s untarnished and untainted by heartache and any of the numerous things that change you, it’s very healing. It’s a miracle.”

Stephen Colbert Shaves His Beard In First ‘Late Show’ Promo

What was Stephen Colbert hiding all these years under his “Colbert Report” character? Apparently, a giant grey beard.

In the first promo for CBS’ “Late Show with Stephen Colbert,” the host introduces us to his beard, but then decides it’s time to get rid of it. Colbert tries on a handful of characters with different facial hair, like “the un-Hitler” ‘stache, the half Wolverine and lastly, the fresh-faced, hairless Colbert.

Watch Colbert eat a hot dog with a fork and knife and give his beard a musical goodbye. Follow the show’s new Twitter account and Colbr app for more updates. “Late Show with Stephen Colbert” debuts on Sept. 8.

Comedy Legend Carl Reiner On The New Guard Of Late Night: James Corden Is ‘Unbelievable’

Comedy legend Carl Reiner knows a thing or two about late night: he’s the only man on the planet to have appeared on every incarnation of the “Tonight Show,” from Steve Allen to Jimmy Fallon.

And with all the changes going on in late night TV, Reiner is very optimistic. While he calls Fallon an “amazing talent,” Reiner especially likes the newest name in late night, James Corden, host of the “Late Late Show” on CBS.

“He’s unbelievable,” said Reiner. “He sings, he dances… he is very graceful and he sings beautifully.”

Check out part two of Carl Reiner’s memoir I Just Remembered here.

The One Thing You Should Do More of Before It’s Too Late

Just hug.

My Grandma died one year ago today. I don’t believe anyone really truly dies, because I believe we are a spirit encapsulated in a physical body. And because of that, I don’t get sad thinking that I can’t talk to my grandma any more. I am not sad because I think she’s gone forever. I know she is here in some way. But what DOES make me sad is that I can’t hug her anymore.

2015-05-27-1432736287-2232056-10325153_667401969993837_4861156162332956571_n.jpg

We are physical beings. We have the extraordinary ability to feel things, to touch things, to embrace, to see, to hear, to explore, to imagine, and to love. Our bodies and our senses are the tools that allow us to connect with the people and environments around us.

2015-05-27-1432736455-1856374-10407970_667395543327813_8587078006495991750_n.jpg

My dreams of my grandma have always been just of hugging her. Not much else happens. I just find myself laying in bed forcing myself to stay asleep so that the hug will last longer. I just want to lie next to her in her hospice bed without saying anything. I just want to BE there. I wish all of our hugs were longer. I wish I was more present during them. I wish they weren’t quick hellos and good byes. I wish I cuddled next to her on the couch more often.

2015-05-27-1432736237-975846-10302105_667401669993867_7199032670596430573_n.jpg

Aren’t those the best moments? When you’re able to just BE with someone you love? Your mother, father, sister, brother, son, daughter, best friend, or significant other? Don’t you just love those moments where not much is happening, and not much is being said? It’s like this little glimpse of time where time doesn’t actually seem to exist.

2015-05-27-1432736341-2475425-10406557_667402056660495_8750206142747383091_n.jpg

Happiness doesn’t occur sometime in the future or the past. It doesn’t occur in a memory. It occurs in those little instances where we get to truly feel alive and connected. And it usually includes another human being who we love deeply.

I don’t think of myself as someone who regrets very much in life. To me, everything is a learning experience. But I think this might be the one regret that I do have. However, I know that the best thing that I can do now, is hug more, for longer, and with more people.

So hug more. I’m going to tell my family and my sisters that we need to do it more, and you should too. Don’t wait. Hug randomly and when they least expect it. Hug for longer periods of time. Squeeze harder and hold on. Make it weird. Secretly they like it. I promise.

I bet conflicts will naturally dissipate, tension will subside, and relationships will get better. And with something so so simple.

Hug like you mean it, and like you know that the day will come when you can’t hug them anymore.

2015-05-27-1432736710-6573358-10351452_667408829993151_4092876817152546887_n.jpg

A Goodbye After 20 Years of Directing Late Show With David Letterman

In the early evening of May 20 the words “used to be” will be grafted to the end of my name. Around 5:30, I will ask CBS Technical Director Tim Kennedy to “please fade to black.” Later I will remove the few remaining personal items from my sunny office with the four windows and set out to civilian life. When my feet touch 53rd street I will take my place among “ex” ball players, “former” Congressmen and “used to be” ship captains. I will be referred to as “the former director” of Late Show with David Letterman. Along with the name change, comes the surrender of an all-access pass to New York City.

Consider the sound of six hands clapping. In March of 2012, the cast of the Broadway show Once was booked on Late Show. On the Friday before the appearance, I walked eight blocks south to the Bernard B. Jacobs Theater with a Late Show producer and my assistant. We sat in the darkened house as Cristin Milioti, Steve Kazee and the entire cast treated us to a very private performance of “Falling Slowly.” We were invited onstage where these big-time performers warmly introduced themselves and asked if “we would like to see it again?” “Ah, thank you. We’d love to see it again.”

Show business is filled with effusive strivers who realize their dream and can’t stop telling you about it. Sorry, but yes, there was a younger version of me from the north shore of Staten Island desperate for a one-way ferry ride. Manhattan scared me — it was loud, uncomfortable and uncaring, and, for reasons thousands of smarter people have tried to explain, absolutely magnetic. I had no choice. I needed to step off on the New York side and stay there.

One arctic January night, I rode the ferry again but this time I “owned” it. Late Show needed a new opening montage and I was given the resources and creative freedom to light up a boat named “The American Legion”. After crossing the harbor with the ferry’s captain, I grabbed a taxi to the West 30th street heliport where a pilot and camera crew harnessed me to the floor of a helicopter that was missing its doors. We did multiple passes across the bow of the ferry that was following a route and speed I requested. Later we buzzed the icons. I got a close look at the rivets dotting the roof of the Chrysler building and dangled my feet over the spiky crown of the Statue of Liberty. “Big deal” you say, “directors get to do that stuff all the time.” True, but on what scale and how often? I was in show business every day for 20 years or 1040 Sundays if Billy Crystal is counting. I had a blast. If things didn’t go well on Tuesday (they often didn’t), I had the rest of the week to get it right (I often didn’t.)

When my time at Late Show ends I will have directed over 3700 broadcasts, three openings and dozens of single camera shorts. I was treated to a private tour of the Empire State Building. I rode in blimps, police cars and the back seat of a taxi with Buzz Aldrin, who listened politely as I explained how to hold a pen in zero G. I had free run of Yankee Stadium and was part of a group that convinced George Steinbrenner to berate our Stage Manager, Biff Henderson. Mr. Steinbrenner turned out to be a great guy but the people around him seemed very nervous.

I put in hundreds of miles wandering the city streets with writers and camera crews in search of “found comedy”. On one of the many days when the funny refused to reveal itself, a call was put in to City Hall. Forty five minutes later, we were standing on the porch of Gracie Mansion as Rudy Giuliani lectured us about the waters of the Long Island Sound, the Harlem River and Upper New York Bay converging off his front yard to form the currents of Hell Gate. He reminded me of a know-it-all uncle.

If Joaquin Phoenix can romance an operating system, can I love a building? In 1992 I was invited to abandon my comfortable union gig in the art deco halls of NBC and travel a few blocks west to a smelly, broken down theater that saw its glory days in the 1960s. There was no guarantee of long-term employment, but there was the opportunity to help refurbish of one of the world’s most famous stages. Money blew down Broadway as the corporate might of CBS dragged a neglected ocean liner out of mothballs and made it seaworthy again. It was intoxicating. A dazzling broadcast facility was dropped into a swirl of fresh plaster, deep pile carpeting and velour seats. Everything was new; everything was possible.

I roamed the grand old building unchallenged, no one told me to leave (actually there was one time in 2003, long story). Instead stagehands and security people acknowledged me with snarky, absurd salutations that can only be traded among people who’ve shared changes of seasons and cycles of life. I’ve crawled through every accessible inch of The Ed Sullivan Theater. I’ve examined the pumping system that tames the stream running beneath the building and I’ve spied the plump rats who shared the stage with Letterman. I’ve climbed the sketchy iron ladder to the roof and stepped out a restaurant window onto the iconic marquee where Paul McCartney marked his return with a summertime street concert. I’ve pondered my good fortune in front of the René Bouché pencil drawing of Ed that hangs in the inner lobby and I’ve seen the looks of reverence from the many people I’ve taken through the place.

In October of 2002 Warren Zevon showed up for rehearsal; he was dying from mesothelioma. This was his last Late Show appearance and final public performance. He would be dead in less than a year.

Warren was a Late Show regular and covered for Paul Shaffer during the rare times Paul was unavailable. He was one of those guys you never saw coming. He didn’t enter a room — he appeared. On this day a rolling silence announced Warren’s arrival. He took in our frightened, sad faces for a few perfectly timed beats and said, “I think it’s the flu.” Later, Warren and Letterman had a compelling and surprisingly amusing conversation during which Warren shared that he may have “made a tactical error in not going to a physician for 20 years.” With the time he had left, Warren told us he intended to “enjoy every sandwich.” He performed three songs, focusing every witness to a deep look at the abyss.

Each day, Late Show started with a blank page that demanded to be filled. There were plenty of smart ideas, but we often resorted to spectacle. We broke windows, blew up pumpkins and spilled thousands of marbles from seven floors up. We hosted presidential candidates, presidents and former presidents. (There’s that “former” word again.) We re-enacted the Civil War and marched Marines under our marquee and through the aisles of the theater. We watched Philippe Petit take a wire walk 14 stories above an airbag that the city demanded, but he assured me would do nothing to save his life.

And then there are the folks, the humans who kept the assembly line moving. Late Show is populated by smart, stylish people with wicked senses of humor and impossibly fast minds. They gorge on popular culture and carry generous supplies of intuition and insight. Somehow they soldier on through jealousy, rage, dysfunction, cancelled guests, evolving technology, relentless scrutiny, tardy rock stars, fierce competition, 4 am calls, failed comedy ideas and a very demanding boss. They are clever, resilient and, at their core, among the most decent people you could ever hope to meet.

And then there’s Letterman — someone who relentlessly drove himself and the rest of us to the outer envelope of effort and clear thinking. In a random close encounter you’re likely to be charmed — what a great guy, so well-informed and so interested in what I have to say.

I grew up around funny people. Sarcasm and irony was my native language, finesse was an alien concept. Humming just beneath the surface of banter and insults was a bond allowing us to endure life’s cruelties with silliness. Funny people are strong. They counter fear and the indignities of living by surfacing the ironic, the ridiculous and the unexplainable. If tragedy is never taken seriously, then nothing can be tragic, fear is eliminated. To be in the presence of funny people is effortless and exhilarating, to be around people trying to be funny requires you to pay attention — it’s work.

When Dave was still at NBC hosting his 12:30 show, there were lavish Christmas parties. He’d buy out the Rockefeller Center Skating Rink and staff and crew would eat, drink and skate together. It was magical. Imagine sliding around on that famous ice minus the crowds, while envious tourists studied us from the plaza above.

As the evening wore on, small support clusters gathered to strategize about the best moment to approach Dave. We all wanted a little face time to register gratitude and maybe say something clever. People agonized over when to make the move and what to say. It was like lining up to visit Santa Claus, except Santa was a moving target, easily irritated and there would be no sitting on his lap.

It didn’t feel right to bother him while he was skating; you weren’t going to interrupt him while he was eating and there was never an easy way to join a conversation he was having with someone else. I was new to this world and couldn’t reconcile the degree of angst hovering over the room. Smart people were struggling to measure the conditions of saying “thank you” to their boss at the company Christmas party. It seemed way too difficult but, like everyone else, I was thrilled to be included and desperately wanted to be invited to the next party and beyond.

As I silently raged against my diffidence and fear of celebrities, I was steadily reminded by more experienced partygoers that “you have to go up there.” Time was running short. When I spied a gap around his table, I jumped. It was like stepping off the wing of a shrieking airplane. Beyond the pressure of coming up with something smart to say was the added burden of being evaluated by a gaggle of eavesdroppers who would overhear my remarks and report to the rest of the party. There would be judgment.

Before I was frightened off by the intense, narrow eyes that screamed “Oh God, here’s another one,” I stuck out my arm and said “Well Dave, it’s time for the annual hand shake.” I was sure that lampooning the absurdity of it all was something he’d appreciate. Turns out I was very wrong. Professional funny people don’t like wise guys. My stab at neighborhood humor was met with soul-searing silence. “Thanks for everything,” I stammered as he reflexively gripped my hand. “No Jerry, thank you,” came the kind-of-loud reply. I slithered away reduced. I spent two agonizing hours trying to get it right and he dropped me with four words and a scowl. I wanted to stick my head in a bucket.

Spread over 25 years my Letterman encounters, occasionally direct sometimes by proxy, were dominated by similar miscues, garbled intentions and remorse. I never seemed to say the right thing, but the stakes got higher — I was the director, perfectly positioned to screw things up and I often did. Despite an earnest desire to please, I never left work thinking I got it right.

Among Dave’s many gifts is the uncanny ability to turn the simplest task into something unwieldy. Watch him dial a phone or attempt a tweet. He’s also someone who can stare down the barrel of a single camera and distill the most complex human frailties with sideways insights that are hysterical and ultimately reassuring. The maddening part is the impossibility of predicting which version you’re going to get.

Long before Paris Hilton, the obnoxious Housewives or the family Kardashian was Dave, antagonizing Bryant Gumbel with a bull horn or taunting General Electric’s upper management with a gift basket. Dave pioneered reality television. If he was happy, you knew it and there was no escaping the times he was pissed. Search the night he announced the birth of his son or the time someone accused him of being a “non-voting Republican.”

Brilliant writers showered him with scripts, concepts and set ups. Most pitches were rejected and the rare ones to make it through were drastically altered. Even the best ideas were a threat to his effort to spill his thoughts out in real time. The memorable nights were when he was on a rant or a roll and the vitriol or joy flowed fresh from his uniquely wired brain. While he filleted himself in pursuit of perfection, David Letterman harbored a deep disdain for anything suggesting rehearsal. The observations, the comedy, the biting conclusions had to be conjured in the moment. This was not a teleprompter guy, if it was being read, it wasn’t a conversation, and if it wasn’t a conversation you’re not a broadcaster.

Dave is painfully self-aware. He lives in a state of perpetual examination and is incredulous that others don’t make the same effort. If they did, the world wouldn’t be populated by so many fools. He is easily the fastest knife in any fight and lights, microphones, cameras and direction only interfered. He was impossible to please, and if you stumbled into doing something right, he was convinced it would lessen your next effort. Was it simply some noble, Midwestern work ethic? I may never know.

Dave possessed a fierce drive to honor his opportunity. He threw everything he had at the show and left nothing on the table. Defying an earlier generation of generic NBC executives, David Letterman did become the uncontested heir to Johnny Carson. He walks off with his dream fully realized. He also gave me and many others a shot at their own professional dreams. The entertainment business is deep with people who passed through Dave’s world and have gone on to considerable success.

Now it’s time to hand the keys to a new owner. One day you’re a big shot with fat budgets and vast resources and the next day you’re not. Like the high school we leave behind or the vacated summer rental, someone kind of like you will occupy the space that was once yours and create memories of their own.

When Warren Zevon was leaving the theater that early autumn evening the impossible silence returned. The stage was dim and the theater’s ghost light was in place. As Warren gingerly lowered himself into the backseat of a town car, Stagehand Kenny Sheehan attempted a goodbye — “We’ll see you around, Warren.” A weary grin came to Warren’s face as he reached for the door. “Yea, I’ll see you somewhere.”

Bill Cosby’s ‘Late Show With David Letterman’ Appearance Canceled

According to Newsday, Bill Cosby’s Nov. 19 appearance on “The Late Show With David Letterman” has been canceled. No reason was given for the schedule change, but Regis Philbin will replace Cosby on the broadcast.

A representative for CBS declined to comment when contacted by The Huffington Post (the network does not publicly discuss its booking process). Cosby’s representatives did not return repeated requests for comment; this post will be updated if and when a response is received.

This marks Cosby’s second canceled booking in the last two weeks, as he dropped out of “The Queen Latifah Show” on Oct. 30. That move came a week after stand-up comedian Hannibal Buress called Cosby “a rapist” on stage in a bit that soon went viral. A spokesperson for “The Queen Latifah Show” told The Hollywood Reporter, “Mr. Cosby’s scheduled appearance on The Queen Latifah Show was postponed at his request and was in no way related to any of our recent or upcoming scheduled guests.”

This week, the Internet turned its attention back to Cosby after his team posted a meme generator on his website. The widget was taken down after users uploaded messages that highlighted allegations of rape and sexual abuse brought against the comedian over the last decade.

In addition, Barbara Bowman, one of the women who has alleged Cosby sexually assaulted her, wrote an op-ed in the Washington Post on Thursday recounting encounters with the now 77-year-old comic. She told HuffPost Live in a separate interview that her experiences with Cosby were “sexual encounters that were not consensual on any level.”

Cosby was never criminally charged in Bowman’s case or any other. In 2006, he settled a civil suit with one of the women.
