LONDON Are you sitting down? In that case, you should probably stand up before reading this.

In the first advice of its kind, British experts are recommending office workers stand for at least two hours a day, in a warning against the dangers of prolonged sitting.

A master at work

Notes on watching Louis C.K. live

PORTLAND I am sitting in perhaps the best seats I have ever had for a live performance. We're in the second row and I'm right on the aisle. I am about to get up close and personal with a master of the craft.

I'm about to see Louis C.K.

For those who are unfamiliar, Louis C.K. is perhaps one of the most prominent stand-up comedians out there today. His FX television series 'Louie' is providing a whole new insight as to what is possible with scripted television. With his show, C.K. has a degree of autonomy unseen in the TV world; not only is he the star, but he writes and directs every episode. He even edited much of the first season-plus himself, though those duties have apparently been at least partially handed off as of late. The end result is a deconstruction of the situation comedy; something old is new again.
