Trevor Noah to Succeed Jon Stewart on ‘The Daily Show’ | NYTimes.com

In December, Trevor Noah, a 31-year-old comedian, made his debut as an on-air contributor on “The Daily Show With Jon Stewart,” offering his outsider’s perspective, as a biracial South African, on the United States.“I never thought I’d be more afraid of police in America than in South Africa,” he said with a smile. “It kind of makes me a little nostalgic for the old days, back home.”Now, after only three appearances on that Comedy Central show, Mr. Noah has gotten a huge and unexpected promotion. On Monday, Comedy Central announced that Mr. Noah would be the new host of “The Daily Show,” succeeding Mr. Stewart after he steps down later this year.

An Illustrated History of Los Angeles’s Romance With Castles | Curbed LA

Shielded behind shrubbery, the chateau stands seven stories tall underneath gray shingling. Heavy window hoods shade the windows on the uppermost floor. Above them, a pair of seamless gabled dormers pops out and an octagonal tower rises from the roof. Panels of quatrefoil bedeck the balcony railings. Lush gardens and groves of palm and Eucalyptus trees wrap around the property, shading the private cottages and bungalows below. Inside, arched doorways and windows are relics of a French style centuries old—but the building hasn’t yet reached its first century of existence. Thousands of miles removed from the French Chateau d’Amboise that inspired it, this castle resides not in a land of fields and vineyards, but in one of freeways and red carpets. Hollywood’s Chateau Marmont is an icon of the city, not only for the celebrities who frequent it, but also for its historic place amongst the urban castles of Los Angeles.

You Know You’ve Made It When This Is Your Ride

This is one of the best examples of subtle modifications making a massive impact. Shoreline Motoring is responsible for this stunning upgrade made to a Lamborghini Aventador Roadster, which received a set of custom Niche alloys in matte black to complement the gorgeous matt black paint job. XPEL paint protection film was then added to the factory paint, the wheels were made to pop with some red brake calipers, and then the Italian supercar was given a new voice thanks to a monster Tubi-style exhaust.
