Iconic comedian Jerry Lewis dies at 91

first_img“Jerry was a pioneer in comedy and film. And he was a friend. I was fortunate to have seen him a few times over the past couple of years. Even at 91, he didn’t miss a beat. Or a punchline,” Lewis’ “The King of Comedy” co-star Robert De Niro said in a statement. TAGSJerry Lewis Previous articleEclipse: Who? What? When? Where?

Jerry Lewis was an undeniable genius an unfathomable blessing, comedy’s absolute!” Jim Carrey wrote Sunday on Twitter. “I am because he was!”“The world has lost a true innovator & icon,” comedian Dane Cook wrote.Lewis’ career spanned the history of show business in the 20th century, beginning in his parents’ vaudeville act at the age of 5. He was just 20 when his pairing with Martin made them international stars. He went on to make such favorites as “The Bellboy” and “The Nutty Professor,” was featured in Martin Scorsese’s “The King of Comedy” and appeared as himself in Billy Crystal’s “Mr. Saturday Night.” Please enter your name here Share on Facebook Tweet on Twitter  Jerry Lewis, the manic, rubber-faced showman who jumped and hollered to fame in a lucrative partnership with Dean Martin, settled down to become a self-conscious screen auteur and found an even greater following as the tireless, teary host of the annual muscular dystrophy telethons, has died. He was 91. In the 1990s, he scored a stage comeback as the devil in the Broadway revival of “Damn Yankees.” And after a 20-year break from making movies, Lewis returned as the star of the independent drama “Max Rose,” released in 2016.In 1983, Mr. Lewis married SanDee Pitnick, and in 1992 their daughter, Danielle Sara, was born. Besides his wife and daughter, survivors include his sons Christopher, Scott, Gary and Anthony, and several grandchildren.Although the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences never honored Mr. Lewis for his film work, he received the Jean Hersholt Humanitarian Award for his charitable activity in 2009. His many other honors included two stars on the Hollywood Walk of Fame — one for his movie work, the other for television — and an induction into the Légion d’Honneur, awarded by the French government in 2006.In 2015, the Library of Congress announced that it had acquired Mr. Lewis’s personal archives. In a statement, he said, “Knowing that the Library of Congress was interested in acquiring my life’s work was one of the biggest thrills of my life.” Please enter your comment!

3 ways to improve your walking technique

first_img Please enter your name here Walking can improve your balance, lift your mood and prevent serious illnesses such as heart disease and high blood pressure. But as you grow older, you can form bad walking habits such as slouching, dragging your feet and twisting your body, all of which can lead to back pain, discomfort and injury.They say habits are hard to break, but fixing your walking technique can be a breeze with a few easy steps.Here are three ways you can improve your walking technique:1. Remember “heel to toe”It may seem simple, but a majority of people forget to practice this proper stepping method. Step onto your heel, roll onto the ball of your foot and lift your heel off the ground with your big toe. This will prevent injury to your foot and ankle, and help you keep your balance and stability.2. Be aware of your postureMake sure your head is up and looking forwardKeep your back straight by slightly tightening your stomach musclesYour neck, shoulders and back should be relaxedSwing your arms naturally with a slight bendYour hips should shift slightly when you walk, but never fully rotate to the side3. Find your personal strideEvery person has their own unique stride. You can strain your muscles if you attempt a longer or shorter stride than natural. If you’re looking to increase your speed, try taking more steps per minute to prevent injury.Your spine is affected by everything you do, even walking! After some practice, these adjustments will become a natural habit. It’s important to take the necessary steps to protect your spine so it can support you for years to come. So keep your head up, your back straight and march “heel to toe” forward on your journey to a healthy lifestyle!If your back pain makes walking difficult even with these adjustments, contact the Spine Health Institute at (866) 986-7497.

Our democratic republic is based on the rule of law, which protects us from anarchy and mob rule. However most have lost the understanding of the foundation of western law, and that law itself has rules or boundaries that our founders understood and called “the laws of nature and natures God.” This knowledge both guides and restricts human law and protects our inalienable rights given by our Creator. As an expert on law, Mat will help bring light and understanding to not only our liberties, but our rights to defend that liberty.”Staver has a B.A. in Theology from Southern Missionary College, an M.A. in Religion from Andrews University, and a J.D. from the University of Kentucky. He has argued before the Supreme Court of the United States twice and has argued before most of the federal courts of appeals.Staver served as the Dean of the law school at Liberty University from 2006 to 2014.He founded Liberty Council in 1989.Liberty Counsel is an international nonprofit litigation, education, and policy organization dedicated to advancing religious freedom, the sanctity of life, and the family since 1989, by providing pro bono assistance and representation on these and related topics.

South Africa maintain home record with dramatic last ditch win over Wales

first_imgSunday Jun 22, 2014 South Africa maintain home record with dramatic last ditch win over Wales A dramatic late penalty try denied Wales a first ever win in South Africa, as the Springboks fought back twice to snatch victory at the death. It was an agonising 31-30 defeat for the Welsh, who led for 78 minutes before referee Steve Walsh’s big decision. After a tense start to the game, in which Wales put up far more of a fight than last week, the visitors shot out to 17-0 lead following tries to Jamie Roberts and the outstanding Alex Cuthbert.Late in the half the Springboks came back, putting enourmous pressure on the Welsh close to the tryline, leading to two yellow cards and a penalty try. By halftime the Boks trailed by just three points, 17-14, but Wales started the second well, scoring a controversial try through Ken Owens.Dan Biggar extended the lead to 13 points with ten minutes remaining, as the Springboks trailed 30-17 and looked set for their first ever loss to Wales at home, after a performance that was anything but what they displayed in Durban a week earlier.Willie Le Roux had a strong second half though, scoring a try himself and helping Cornal Hendricks to not only a try, but an opportunity to score in the corner with time almost up.Wales fullback Liam Williams came in for what was an incredible try saving tackle, but made with no use of the arms, so Walsh stepped up and after conferring with the TMO, dramatically awarded a penalty try in what one has to say was one of the most dramatic decisions of recent times.Biggar came close with a drop goal in the final seconds, but it went wide and South Africa hung on to take the series 2-0 ahead of a meeting with Scotland in Port Elizabeth next weekend. “As a collective, we can be proud moving forward,” said Wales tour captain Alun-Wyn Jones. “This is not the result we would have wanted going into the off season, but definitely the performance.”Following the match prop Samson Lee received a citing for an alleged second half headbutt that occurred shortly before the Owens try in the second half. The hearing was last night but the result has been deferred until midweek. It was a Test match of epic proportions, with multiple talking points, so feel free to discuss in the comments rather than have each and every incident or dramatic moment written about here. We’ll get better quality highlights posted when possible, but for now the below clip should cover it.

The Steven Luatua Quarterback Lineout throw against Australia

first_imgTuesday Nov 4, 2014 The Steven Luatua Quarterback Lineout throw against Australia The latest Barbarians have reinvigorated the brand by playing the type of rugby that fans have come to expect from the famous club. Against Australia they were inventive and fearless, as can be seen with this audacious long lineout throw by Steven Luatua.ADVERTISEMENTThe All Black wasn’t part of the squad over in Chicago, so he brought the USA to Twickenham, showing that he has a pretty decent quarterback throwing arm, even if it was a little skew.“He’s played a little bit of American Football at school, so he threw the ball like that at training and I said ‘Ah, you better bring that out’,” explained Barbarians coach John Kirwan.It’s his second outing for the BaaBaas, and after revealing that he’s a big NFL fan in training, they thought they’d give this a shot. The Wallabies were quick to react and the ball was dropped, but kudos to the side for trying something new. With an accurate throw and a bit of luck, who knows.View Barbarians vs Wallabies highlights  Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error See it to Believe it Related Articles 17 WEEKS AGO Six minutes of Dan Biggar moaning to referees… 17 WEEKS AGO THROWBACK: Some of the most bizarre entertainment… 18 WEEKS AGO Heroic scenes as limping Wallaby sets up… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.
