A sound stage on the Warner Bros. lot is thought to be particularly "lucky" when it comes to movies that go on to win Oscar gold for best picture.
Highway to Sin City
Steve Goldstein talks to Dr. Robert Lang of Brookings Mountain West about the benefits of a highway between Las Vegas and Phoenix, and why one hasn't been built yet...
Lang says that, according to the old interstate rule in1956, Arizona didn't qualify for a highway. He says that growth in the Southwest makes Arizona and Nevada necessary to connect with a highway. Even with slowing growth, the sizes of the cities need a highway to keep up with the volume of people traveling back and forth.
