Long Lines at World Trade International Bridge

Frida Flores , with information by Edna Juarez NUEVO LAREDO.- A presumed error in the system is keeping hundreds of trucks from crossing to the United States through Bridge no. 3. According to stuck drivers, they have been waiting more than 3 hours for the system to restart. “It’s been over 3 hours, the line hasn’t moved, I think [the line] it’s aobut 10 km already, it’s probably the system again.” says a driver who was waiting in line at 3:00 PM this afternoon. The presumed error has provoked the annoyance of drivers, and the longs lines that have a length more than 10 km....

‘How I Met Your Mother’ ends a legendary run

Henry Hanks, CNN After 208 episodes, countless “legendarys!” and any number of pineapple incidents, slaps and slutty pumpkins, “How I Met Your Mother” comes to an end on Monday night. One thing we’re absolutely certain will happen is that Ted Mosby will finally meet the future mother of his children and the nine-year-long story that future Ted has been telling the kids will be over. Before we say goodbye to Ted and his friends, and the hit sitcom that often challenged the conventions (like, say, telling stories in chronological order), the cast and the creators look back. Kids, here’s how they’ll remember “How I Met Your Mother.” How they knew the show would last Carter Bays (co-creator): When we first started making the show, we had this weird, naïve idea that it would run a long time. It was our first show and we didn’t really know about how often shows get canceled, but there was always this special feeling about the show, that it would really last a while. Craig Thomas (co-creator): The cast were like, “This is too fun, this is doomed to fail, we can’t be allowed to do this for nine years.” And we were just stupidly optimistic. It could have failed a few times, but thank God it didn’t. Pamela Fryman (director): The pilot was so special, getting to discover who these characters were to become. Whether it’s a two-minute date or a song-and-dance number, everything has made me better. If you asked me before if I could do any of those things, I’d probably say no. Josh Radnor (Ted Mosby): I remember feeling that first episode with Ashley Williams, I remember Pam called us into watch that. I remember thinking, “This is a really special show.” It does things differently than other shows. It uses so many different styles. We half-intentionally created something new and we hope it will stick around. How much impact guest stars had Bays: Having Britney Spears here was pretty memorable. We were such a garage band show, we were doing OK in the ratings but weren’t really on anyone’s radar, then suddenly this international superstar parachutes into the set and it was a very bizarre week. Alyson Hannigan (Lily Aldrin): Jennifer Lopez was adorable. She called my little girl a coconut. How they made their favorite episodes Neil Patrick Harris (Barney Stinson): Barney had a big musical number about suits on the 20th Century Fox lot, like an old Gene Kelly musical, I even swung around a lamppost. I loved that episode, plus I got to sing and dance. Cobie Smulders (Robin Scherbatsky): I loved our “Two Minute...
