THE fallout from the attack on the World Trade Center in New York City in September 11 meant a lot of movies and TV shows had to adjust scenes — including Ocean’s Eleven.In the hit remake of the classic film — released exactly 15 years ago — we see Terry and Tess (Andy Garcia and Julia Roberts) watching over the demolition of a Vegas hotel, while Danny and Linus (George Clooney and Matt Damon) look on.Originally, this scene had the New York, New York Hotel and Casino being brought down by explosives, but in the wake of the attacks, producers decided it was completely inappropriate — and looked too much like the devastating collapse of the World Trade Center.It meant a brief scramble, with the CG backdrop of the demolished buildings being changed just before its release, with a new fake hotel called ‘The Xanadu’.But if you really wanted to see the original scene — the HBO ‘behind-the-scenes’ featurette of Ocean’s Eleven … [Read more...] about The big scene in Ocean’s Eleven that had to be changed after the 9/11 attacks

The port city of Gijon in the Spanish region of Asturias has always lived off the sea. The fishermen exchanged their nets for shovels late in the 19th century, as the city turned to exploiting local coalmines, and later shipbuilding. But economic recession hit the area hard in the 1980s. Today, an expansion of Gijon's port costing 600 million Euros ($777 million) is transforming the city. The multinational company Arcelor -- one of the largest steel makers in the world -- is happy about the project that's doubling the size of Gijon's port. The European Union's structural fund has contributed 250 million Euros to the development. Arcelor manager Manuel Junquera said it's going to mean millions more tons of minerals like coal can be brought in from countries like Australia and Mauritania for use in Arcelor steel plants. "Like all steel makers, we need to bring in minerals to extract the steel, as we don't have these minerals in Spain," Junquera said. "The only way to bring these … [Read more...] about Spain: Boosting the Economy in the Port City of Gijon
Can favorite Federer top renaissance with number 8? Eighteen months ago, there were plenty who thought the most prolific Grand Slam singles champion in men's tennis history was finished. He hadn't won a major title since 2012, Novak Djokovic and Andy Murray were in the ascendancy and knee surgery threatened the future of a player deep into his 30s. The picture looks very different now. The 35-year-old Swiss goes in to Wimbledon as the Australian Open champion and tournament favorite, after winning the warm up tournament in Halle without dropping a set. "It felt great to win another one. It's been a difficult year, a lot of training and rehab. It's great to be back on the match court," he said afterwards. An eighth win on his favorite grass-court surface would extend his record as the oldest winner of a Grand Slam in the open era. His first title in London came in 2004, when potential third round opponent Alexander Zverev, of Germany, was just 7-years-old. Will struggling big … [Read more...] about The big questions ahead of Wimbledon 2017
