Slovakia Signs Deal To Deliver Gas To Ukraine

Under the deal, Slovakia will reverse the flow of gas in a pipeline from which it usually gets gas from Ukraine. To be able to send the gas, some technical changes are still needed that might take several months. Slovak officials said Ukraine could get up to 10 billion cubic meters of natural gas per year through the pipeline.

‘One Day Since Yesterday: Peter Bogdanovich & The Lost American Film’: Venice Review
How fitting that 32 years after the Venice Film Festival opened with They All Laughed , Peter Bogdanovich ’s swirling love letter to love and to New York City, the director is back on the Lido as the subject of a documentary focusing on that long-overlooked romantic caper comedy and its turbulent back story. This is engrossing material, and its specificity alone makes One Day Since Yesterday worth watching. But while there’s no doubting director Bill Teck ’s passion for the project, his inexperience as a filmmaker shows in the disorganized, technically rough study, which outstays its usefulness by a good half-hour, loitering over ground already covered.

After Driver's Death, Tony Stewart's Return To NASCAR Cut Short
What started as a deeply emotional race for Tony Stewart ended prematurely when a blown tire cut short his return to NASCAR. Stewart came back to competition Sunday for the first time since his car struck and killed another driver on August 9. The crowd at the Oral-B USA 500 erupted in cheers as Stewart was introduced. But after just 172 of 325 laps at the Atlanta Motor Speedway, his front right tire blew, and Stewart's car smacked the wall on Turn 2. In the end, Kasey Kahne won the race and clinched a spot in the "Chase for the NASCAR Sprint Cup" playoff.

Iraqi Prime Minister Pledges To Root Out Militants
Iraq's outgoing prime minster pledged Monday to turn his country into "a big grave" for Sunni militants from the Islamic State group and commended security forces who achieved a rare victory over insurgents by ending the siege of a Shiite town. Nouri al-Maliki made the comments during an unannounced visit to the northern community of Amirli, where he was greeted with hugs.

Telluride: Hilary Swank Angles For Another Shot At Oscar With 'The Homesman'
Hilary Swank already has two best actress Oscars on her shelf, for Boys Don't Cry and Million Dollar Baby, which is something that only 12 other women have ever been able to claim. But, having only just turned 40, she is not resting on her laurels. Since her second win, in 2005, she has pursued a number of projects that were clearly intended to be awards bait, but that failed to resonate with voters. Now, however, she is starring in a film that in no way adheres to the traditional Oscar-baiting formula, Tommy Lee Jones' western Homesman — and she may have her best shot yet at landing her third nomination. The Homesman premiered at Cannes in May, but had its North American premiere, and additional screenings, this weekend at Telluride, which also honored Swank with a "career tribute" (one of several that she is being lined up to receive this award season).

Officials said on Monday NATO leaders will respond to the Ukraine crisis by agreeing this week to create a "spearhead" rapid reaction force, potentially including several thousand troops, that could be sent to a hotspot in as little as two days. The 28-nation alliance already has a rapid reaction force but U.S. President Barack Obama and other leaders meeting for a NATO summit in Wales on Thursday and Friday are expected to create a new force that would be able to respond more quickly to a crisis.
