By Sebastien Malo NEW YORK (Reuters) - High-wire walker Nik Wallenda said on Monday he will attempt to walk atop a spinning observation wheel in Orlando, Florida, a stunt made particularly difficult because the wheel will be moving, he said. "I have to keep up with that wheel." The Orlando Eye, part of a new entertainment complex, will offer views of central Florida from inside 30 enclosed, air-conditioned glass capsules when it opens to the public on May 4. Wallenda previously walked atop a Ferris wheel in Santa Cruz, California, but he said the size of the much larger Orlando wheel and the fact that he will not use a pole sets this stunt apart. The seventh-generation member of the "Flying Wallenda" family of acrobats has walked across the Grand Canyon and Niagara Falls.

By Saundra Amrhein TAMPA, Fla. (Reuters) - Singer-songwriter Carlos Varela, dubbed "The Poet of Havana," has walked a cultural tightrope in Cuba for decades, questioning the island's communist government in his lyrics, while also hitting out at Washington's five-decades-old trade embargo. His songs earned him a following on both sides of the Florida Straits despite their Cold War divide. "The Poet of Havana," by Toronto-based film director Ron Chapman, depicts Varela as a symbol of a generation of Cuban artists born soon after the 1959 revolution who opted to stay in Cuba rather than emigrate. The documentary, which premiered last month at the Gasparilla International Film Festival in Tampa, will be shown in the United States, Cuba and England.
