EA Laying Off 350 People About 4 of Staff

We are friends and colleagues at EA, we appreciate and value everyone’s contributions, and we are doing everything we can to ensure we are looking after our people to help them through this period to find their next opportunity. This is our top priority.” You can read the full letter at the bottom of this story.The news comes about a bit more than a month after Activision Blizzard announced it was laying off about 800 people as part of a major restructuring.Activision called the move a de-prioritizing of initiatives that didn’t meet expectations. CEO Bobby Kotick said that the cuts would come from support staff while the company consolidates its commercial operations and reorganizes its marketing initiatives. Activision will be instead investing more in live services, Battle.net, eSports, and advertising efforts. More than 200 of those impacted worked at Blizzard.“While our financial results for 2018 were the best in our history, we didn’t realize our full potential,” Bobby Kotick, Chief Executive Officer of Activision Blizzard said in an earnings report statement.Electronic Arts own earnings call in February was bleak, with Wilson noting that the “Battlefield 5” missed its third-quarter prediction by about a million, something he blamed on bad marketing and the need to delay the game to make it better.“If I think about ‘Battlefield 5’ more holistically, I think we did not do a great job of building momentum early in the project,” he said at the time. “And I think about this not just in the context of development but I think about this in the context about broader execution against the entire campaign. Our launch didn’t resonate strongly as we would have liked it to with players and we were never truly able to catch-up and as our competitors continued to build momentum whether that was ‘Fortnite’ or ‘Red Dead Redemption 2’ or ‘Call of Duty.’”While the demo for EA’s massive space opera game “Anthem” exceeded expectations, the game didn’t do well at launch, running into launch day issues, poor reviews, and lots of fan pushback about the way loot worked in the game.The massive layoffs hitting EA Tuesday are sure to stoke the continued debate around unions and the video game industry.The Activision Blizzard layoffs led to some calling for Kotick’s dismissal, and just a month ago, the annual list of “overpaid CEOs” by As You Sow included both Kotick and Wilson. UPDATING OUR ORGANIZATION AND ADDRESSING OUR CHALLENGES“Today we took some important steps as a company to address our challenges and prepare for the opportunities ahead.  As we look across a changing world around us, it’s clear that we must change with it.  We’re making deliberate moves to better deliver on our commitments, refine our organization and meet the needs of our players.  As part of this, we have made changes to our marketing and publishing organization, our operations teams, and we are ramping down our current presence in Japan and Russia as we focus on different ways to serve our players in those markets.  In addition to organizational changes, we are deeply focused on increasing quality in our games and services.  Great games will continue to be at the core of everything we do, and we are thinking differently about how to amaze and inspire our players.“This is a difficult day.  The changes we’re making today will impact about 350 roles in our 9,000-person company.  These are important but very hard decisions, and we do not take them lightly. We are friends and colleagues at EA, we appreciate and value everyone’s contributions, and we are doing everything we can to ensure we are looking after our people to help them through this period to find their next opportunity. This is our top priority.”last_img read more

Steam to start offering other software from September

first_imgLast month it was discovered that the Steam app for Android included a number of categories not related to gaming. This was followed by speculation that Valve was going to expand the Steam service to include other software such as productivity apps, photo editing, utilities, etc.Today, Valve has confirmed this is exactly what it is about to do. From September 5th new software categories will appear covering a whole range of different tools and apps. Valve hasn’t announced what we can expect to see yet, other than to say it will include everything from “creativity to productivity” software. The categories I’ve seen include racing, sports, accounting, animation & modeling, audio production, design & illustration, education, photo editing, software training, and utilities.By purchasing such software through Steam, Valve is promising to let it utilize the same features games enjoy, such as applying updates automatically and having access to the software on any machine you care to install Steam on. You will also be able to save any work created in the Steam Cloud.Just like games, software titles will have to go through the Steam Greenlight process in order to make it on to the store. It’s also likely we’ll see sales regularly like we do with games, meaning you should be able to pick up some cheap utilities at key times throughout the year.As Steam is already up and running for Mac and PC users, and soon coming to Linux, there’s certainly opportunity here for software developers. Steam will also be in direct competition with the Mac App Store, which should be interesting when it comes to pricing and sales.Read more at Steamlast_img read more

SteamVR Desktop Theater Mode play any game on a massive virtual display

first_imgIn order for virtual reality to realize its full potential, it needs games and experiences to be designed and developed specifically for it. That means there’s thousands of games already available and releasing in the near future that won’t be virtual reality-friendly. However, that doesn’t mean they can’t benefit from VR.Valve has made this clear by confirming a feature called SteamVR Desktop Theater Mode exists. What this mode allows is for any game on Steam to be played using a virtual reality headset. You may think there’s no benefit to such a feature if the game doesn’t support VR, but you’d be wrong. What Desktop Theater Mode does is create a virtual location for you to play your non-VR games within, and that includes a huge display.So you may be sitting at your desk staring at a 24-inch monitor with your hands on a keyboard and mouse (or game pad) ready to play a Steam game. If you then put on a VR headset with Desktop Theater Mode enabled, you could instantly be transported to a virtual room of your choosing and be staring at the same game on a massive display (think movie theater size).SteamVR Desktop Theater Mode is still in an early beta stage of development, but will be compatible with any Steam-friendly virtual reality headsets. That means the HTC Vive, Oculus Rift, Razer OSVR, and more will surely follow. We should get our first glimpse of the mode in action during the Game Developer Conference, which starts today in San Francisco.This mode has a lot of potential to promote the use of a VR headset. It’s not just the ability to play games on a massive virtual screen, but the room design itself. Changing the theme on your Xbox One or PS4 is popular, but this mode should allow you to tweak the look of an entire room. You can setup your own gaming den that only exists in virtual space. Very cool.last_img read more

Gone With the Wind How Olivia de Havilland helped Clark Gable Cry

first_imgIn July 2018, Olivia de Havilland celebrated her 102nd birthday. The retired actress has been living in Paris ever since the 1950s, but today is rather more widely noted not as a resident of the French capital, but as the Classic Hollywood’s grande dame. Among her best-praised roles is that of Melanie Hamilton Wilkes, in Gone with the Wind (1939). Of the four leading actors and actresses in this timeless classic, which also include the now late Vivien Leigh, Leslie Howard, and Clark Gable, only de Havilland, is still among us — her star shining on.Olivia de Havilland, 1940s.The star was born in Tokyo, on a summer’s day of July 1, 1916, in a world torn by an ongoing war. Her parents were Walter de Havilland and Lillian Fontaine. Walter de Havilland, a Cambridge graduate, had relocated with his spouse in Japan due to his studies and both of the couple’s daughters were born there.Olivia’s sister was Joan Fontaine, also a famous actress. Although the pair is remembered for a lasting feud between each other, they are also the only pair of siblings to have both grabbed an Academy Award for a leading role in a movie.Olivia de Havilland as Melanie Hamilton in Gone With the Wind.De Havilland was largely influenced by her mother, a stage actress herself. She had her first big year in 1933 when she took the role of Hermia in Shakespeare’s best-known comedy A Midsummer Night’s Dream. The piece was produced by Austrian film and theater director Max Reinhardt and it showed at the Hollywood Bowl.It was this performance that brought de Havilland a full-time contract with Warner Brothers. Her career had just jump-started.In the following years, the actress would recurrently co-star alongside her Australian counterpart, Errol Flynn. The pair first appeared together on the big screen in 1935 in Captain Blood. Three years later, again siding next to Flynn, de Havilland played Maid Marian in one of the top 10 box-office hits of the year, The Adventures of Robin Hood.Studio publicity portrait for Gone with the Wind, 1939.However, the real fame for Dame Olivia came once she accepted the role in Gone with the Wind, the film that deeply moved audiences at the end of the 1930s, and ever after. A drama set in the days of the American Civil War, based on the novel penned by Margaret Mitchell, proved a classic as the years went by.In a 2004 interview for the New York Times, de Havilland remarked that she never gets bored of discussing the movie again and again, and that she herself has enjoyed watching it 26 times in total.Olivia de Havilland, publicity photo for Captain Blood, 1935.De Havilland depicts the amiable character of Melanie Hamilton in the 1939 classic, in a striking contrast to the blazing Vivien Leigh who takes on the character of Scarlett O’Hara. While both the women in the film initially have a love interest in Ashley Wilkes, played by Leslie Howard, it is Hamilton who wins him in the end. The flamboyant character of Rhett Butler, played by Gable, who couples with O’Hara.Over interviews, de Havilland has also talked about difficulties some of the cast faced while filming. For instance, Clark Gable was faced with a scene in which his character was heartbroken due to the loss of his daughter Bonnie. According to de Havilland, Gable struggled with this particular scene, one which he shared with de Havilland, as he was supposed cry in front of the camera.Clark Gable and Vivien Leigh in Gone With the Wind.“He was worried: you see, he had never cried on the screen before. He thought it was not masculine to cry. He was so worried about it,” the actress reportedly said.Glamorous Hollywood leading Ladies Quotes.However, de Havilland also encouraged him: “I remember I said, ‘Tears denote strength of character, not weakness. Crying makes you intensely human.’ He agreed, rehearsed it, and it turned out to be one of the most memorable scenes in the movie.”Olivia de Havilland and Vivien Leigh, publicity photo for Gone with the Wind, 1939.For her role in Gone with the Wind, de Havilland earned her first Academy Award nomination. She did’t win this one but did scoop the Oscar for her role as Josephine Norris in Each His Own (1946), and for playing Catherine Sloper in The Heiress (1949).During her decades-spanning career, de Havilland worked on about 50 movies, remaining active until the 1980s. With an empire of motion pictures behind her, as well as the well-deserved recognition and awards, the last-standing true star of the 1930s has indeed made a lasting mark in the history of the film industry.Olivia de Havilland, publicity photo for Santa Fe Trail, 1940.And if you are wondering what de Havilland is doing at 102 — she is just past a recently filed lawsuit. The reason? Remember that feud between her and her sister? According to de Havilland, the TV show Feud took it a step too far.Read another story from us: Wonder Woman Gal Gadot Set to Portray Actress-Inventor Hedy Lamarr“The creators of Feud used my identity without my consent and put false words in my mouth, including having me publicly calling my sister, Joan Fontaine, a ‘bitch’,” she wrote to The Guardian in March this year. Later that same month, the lawsuit was thrown out.Stefan is a freelance writer and a regular contributor to The Vintage News. He is a graduate in Literature.

Costa Rica govt minister dismisses Vanderbilt as some university in Tennessee

first_imgNo related posts. It looks like Presidency Minister Carlos Ricardo Benavides isn’t a fan of the Commodores.During a press conference Tuesday afternoon, Benavides and Communications Minister Carlos Roverssi were asked to comment on a report about slumping support in Costa Rica for the political system, according to Vanderbilt University’s 2012 Latin American Public Opinion Project.According to LAPOP, Ticos in 2012 were the most dissatisfied with their system of government since the start of the hemisphere-wide survey that takes place every two years. Costa Rica ranked 10th out of the 26 Latin American countries surveyed for the 2012 report, down from 4th in 2006. Granted, the news was old (the report came out in April after all) but with elections fast approaching on Feb. 2, 2014, the daily La Nación tried to breathe new life into the story over the weekend by asking how the low morale would affect voter turnout.Benavides responded that the survey was an “irresponsible, isolated” study from “some university in Tennessee” that he had never heard of, and dismissed the study’s findings.“It seems to me that this is a game institutions play with specific figures to misrepresent the country’s image,” Benavides said.For those who follow Latin American political science, however, LAPOP is hardly an “isolated” study. Located in Nashville, Tennessee, in the United States, Vanderbilt University has been collecting public opinion data in the region since 1978 when it started with just one country: Costa Rica.The minister said that there were other studies that disputed this assessment, but he did not name them.According to LAPOP’s website, 43,000 people were surveyed in 2010 in 26 countries. For the 2012 report, 1,500 Ticos offered their opinions.LAPOP has received funding from USAID, the United Nations Development Program, and the Inter-American Development Bank since its launch.The aggressive response from Benavides seemed out of place, but perhaps the administration is still stinging from the public opinion project’s assessment that dissatisfaction with Laura Chinchilla’s government played a role in the historically low ratings, along with the corrosive effects of corruption.

Palmar Sur squatters say theyre ready to die for the land

first_imgRelated posts:Public Security minister says he’ll resign if not given more funds for policing Police evict squatters from U.S. investor’s property in Esterillos Oeste Panama and ‘Panama Papers’ law firm under the media’s lenses Eduardo Li wins lawsuit against insurance company over defense costs in FIFA corruption case PALMAR SUR, Puntarenas — Past the kicked-up dust that spirals over these rock-laced roads and beyond the banana leaves that wave under the wind, the faint echoes of voices and cheers spill from an old packing house.The sign over the open gate that leads to the gutted-out tin shelter reads in Spanish: “Chánguena and Térraba banana plantation. Private Property.”More than 50 squatters from Chánguena and other neighboring plantations in Palmar Sur met at the packing house on Friday, the day they were supposed to be evicted from the parcels where landowner Oscar Echeverría says they’re trespassing — some of them for 14 years.The campesino squatters have managed to stave off evictions for more than a decade, but recently the government’s attempts to kick people off the plantation have gotten more serious.After an initial, largely unsuccessful eviction in July of last year, a second eviction was scheduled to take place last Friday. But it was suspended a few days prior by the Constitutional Chamber of Costa Rica’s Supreme Court, known as Sala IV, so that judges could evaluate several requests for an injunction.Then, on Tuesday, Sala IV ruled against one of the injunctions, removing one of several hurdles blocking another eviction.It’s just the latest chapter in a long and complicated land dispute which has various branches of the government at odds and fumbling in the search for a solution. Besides the government’s problem-solving reputation, at stake are the lives of dozens of families, the land rights of a prominent businessman and a piece of earth whose value could swell if tourism takes off in the region.Banana RepublicThough escalating tensions have brought the Palmar Sur land conflict into the media recently, the dispute actually dates back to the 1980s. Large banana plantations, including some owned by the United Fruit Company, sprung up in Costa Rica’s southern Pacific region starting in the late 1930s.These plantations traditionally provided housing for workers onsite. When workers staged a major strike in 1984, many banana companies abandoned the region, leaving workers without jobs or a place to live.In the fallout, several cooperatives formed to continue farming the area, including COOPALCA, which owns the Chánguena farm. COOPALCA farmed bananas and cocoa in the area but was largely unprofitable. In 1991, the cooperative leased the Chánguena property to businessman Oscar Echeverría Heigold for 20 years.Echeverría — who owns Motores Brítanicos, the exclusive distributor of Land Rovers in Costa Rica — started two banana companies on the land. Workers and their families lived in homes on the property in an area known as “Cuadrante 3.”The venture was a bust, however, and in 2001 the companies went the way of other banana plantations in the area and closed.According to campesino organizer Daniel Villalobos, workers were fired and received no pay for their last month and a half (three quincenas, or pay periods) on the job. In protest, the workers continued to occupy the homes in Cuadrante 3 and eventually started their own cooperative, COOTRAOSA.Villalobos, who is a member of COOTRAOSA, said many families who had worked the banana fields had nowhere to go when the work dried up, so they stayed on the land, farming and raising livestock.The former workers eventually recovered their back wages from Echeverría in 2009, Villalobos said. And they stayed on the land, even though Echeverría had filed court papers to expel them years earlier, in 2001, the same year his banana operations closed. Protesters set up tents on the Térraba bridge, Aug. 14, 2015. (Courtesy Sean Davis www.photographercostarica.com)Phantom co-ops; Disputed landFor more than a decade, with the eviction tied up in the courts, the squatters lived and farmed the land while Echeverría grazed cattle on it — a relatively peaceful coexistence. José Mora, an instructor with Kioscos Ambientales, a social action arm of the University of Costa Rica, said the campesinos were waiting until Echeverría’s concession ended in 2011 to organize a legal attempt to formalize their claim on the land.But COOPALCA, the legal landowner, has not taken any action to remove Echeverría, leaving the property in a legal limbo where the only people not making a claim on the land are the actual owners of it.“COOPALCA is like a phantom co-op,” Mora said, “They don’t really do anything.”Echeverría’s eviction case against the campesinos was tied up in the courts until 2014, when a San José court ruled in favor of Echeverría and ordered the government to remove the squatters.In recent years, campesinos have erected shacks on the farm, separate from the more formal homes in Cuadrante 3. Mora said it’s unclear whether the new squatters are associated with the residents of Cuadrante 3.The Tico Times spoke with several squatters participating in last week’s protest who said they had come to Chánguena at varying times within the last decade.In the meantime, Mora said campesinos living in the disputed area started to meet regularly to discuss an approach to legalize their right to the land.The evictionOn June 24, 2015, an administrative court sided with Echeverría and ordered the families removed by Aug. 5.According to Presidency Vice Minister Ana Gabriel Zúñiga, the Solís administration asked the Government Attorney’s Office to suspend the eviction and clarify whether Echeverría had a right to request it. But the administration’s request was denied and it ordered the Public Security Ministry to remove the squatters in July.At the time, there were 119 families living on the disputed land, according to a statement from Casa Presidencial.“It’s difficult,” Villalobos, the campesino leader, told The Tico Times last year. “We work in the fields but no one has [deeds to the land]. Without those papers we’re open to eviction at any time.”Villalobos said that the families in Chánguena understood their position was precarious, but in the past they had always been able to appeal any order to evict them, therefore delaying an actual order.This time, however, the eviction date came as a surprise to community organizers, and Villalobos said there was no time to appeal. Instead, police arrived and told squatters they had two hours to leave the Chánguena and Cuadrante 3 properties.When campesinos could not reach an agreement with the police, they blocked the bridge on the Inter-American Highway that spans the Río Grande de Térraba bridge, on July 30.Mora, from the University of Costa Rica, said he was troubled by the fact that families living in the long-standing homes in Cuadrante 3 — not just those who had set up shacks on the farm — had been targeted by the eviction. Homes were damaged and windows broken during the eviction.There have been conflicting reports about who was responsible for this damage. Campesinos blame the National Police who were tasked with the expulsion order, while officials have denied officers were responsible for property damage.Failed talksAfter taking the bridge and setting up camps last July, campesino leaders demanded the government find a lasting solution that would allow the families to stay on the Chánguena property. Villalobos said they want the government to legalize their ownership of the land.Several rounds of negotiations between the Presidency Ministry and the campesinos have started and stalled since the July 30 eviction. The Solís administration offered to resettle 60 of the families on a 6-hectare property owned by the National Housing Mortgage Bank in Palmar, with potable water, wastewater and electricity. Most have refused to leave Chánguena.Campesino protesters and university students took the bridge again on Aug. 14 to pressure the government to give the Chánguena residents title to the land, a move that derailed talks with Presidency Minister Sergio Alfaro.Families began rebuilding and repairing their homes on the property.An airport and an uncertain futureRunning parallel to these land disputes and, some say, influencing them, is a proposal to build a $40 million international airport. The site of the proposed project lies near the the Chánguena property, 5 kilometers from the town of Palmar Sur.The newspaper El Financiero reported in 2013 that the Environment Ministry had received environmental impact studies for the project. Mora, the university instructor, said the project is still making its way through the initial studies, but if it were to move forward, it would transform the rural canton of Osa and drive up land values across the region.Campesino leader Daniel Villalobos said he was wary of the potential airport project.Presidency Vice Minister Zúñiga told The Tico Times last year that the government was open to dialogue with the families “within the bounds of what is possible.” At the time, Zúñiga said that expropriation was not on the table and that the government was obligated to execute the court’s ruling.The administration’s handling of the Chánguena eviction last year was criticized by the Ombudsman’s Office. Ombudswoman Monserrat Solano told Channel 7 TV News on Aug. 19 that the displaced families’ human rights were violated in the court-ordered expulsion.President Luis Guillermo Solís met with campesino leaders in the wake of an Aug. 20 demonstration in front of his home in the San José neighborhood of Escalante. Both sides again agreed to negotiate, but talks quickly broke down.A second eviction, ordered in September, was supposed to be completed within three months, but still has not been executed. One of the protesters injured during a confrontation with police in Palmar Sur, Feb. 16, 2016. (Facebook)Looking for trouble?After new demonstrations on the Térraba bridge earlier this month, including a bloody protest on Tuesday, Feb. 16, in which seven workers got arrested, the squatters say they’re more unified than ever.Other unions and university groups have come to Palmar Sur to lend their support to the squatters’ cause.“This requires a revolution,” Guillermo Keith of the National Employees Union told the squatters at a meeting last week. “This is your land. You have to defend it.”President Luis Guillermo Solís told the daily La Nación last week that outsiders had been visiting Palmar Sur in recent days to stir up trouble.“They go there looking for a fight and to see how the police will react,” Solís told reporters Wednesday.Solis has continually told the Palmar Sur squatters that his administration will not negotiate deals under perceived threats, like blockades on the bridge.The campesinos maintain that their demonstration last week was peaceful until police showed up, and that they weren’t blocking traffic on the bridge. According to multiple protesters on the bridge that day, police told the 50-some demonstrators that they had five minutes to leave or else they would be arrested.Eddy Morales, a community leader and one of the seven arrested, said that when police detained fellow squatter Daniel Villalobos, the other protesters rushed to defend him. Those who got close enough were met with unwarranted violence, he said.Morales said he was kicked in the ribs and dragged by the neck by officers. He was then thrown into jail for a day and given a month’s probation from protesting on the bridge, he said.“If defending the land is a crime, then you’re going to have to punish a lot more than just me,” Morales said. “Here, the land issue isn’t just ours, it’s one that thousands of people have.”Squatters like Morales and Carlos Vargas say that Echeverría has no claim to the land because his lease expired years ago. La Nación has reported that the Government Attorney’s Office made a court-sanctioned deal with Echeverría to evict the squatters in exchange for Echeverría’s promise not to sue the government for failing to evict them during the more than a decade since he first made the request.Echeverría’s lawyer, Allan Garro, declined comment and said his client has been instructed not to speak of the matter to the media. Guillermo Keith of the National Labor Union (UNDECA) lends his support to the Palmar Sur squatters in a meeting at the contested Chánguena property. Associations like UNDECA and the National Association of Educators (ANDE) have been vocal in their solidarity with the farmers. Michael Krumholtz/The Tico TimesA possible solutionLast week, the National Rural Development Institute (INDER), an autonomous government entity, asked the Public Security Ministry to suspend the eviction while it tries to mediate the conflict. Representatives from INDER, which was created, in part, to resolve land conflicts, argue that they must first bring together Echeverría and the campesinos, who say they have not been in direct contact with Echeverría or anyone from COOPALCA, the cooperative that owns the land.“Before there is any judicial or administrative action, INDER must be allowed to mediate between both parties,” INDER President Ricardo Rodríguez said. The request is still pending.Broad Front Party legislator Edgar Araya Sibaja has been vocal in his defense of the squatters, and has expressed an equal measure of criticism towards the Solís administration for failing to resolve the conflict peacefully.“This is an easy conflict to solve,” he said in a video published recently on his Facebook page. “Have INDER acquire the land and divide it among the qualifying campesinos.”If that solution panned out, however, determining which families do and don’t qualify for land could be complicated.The government recently donated 38 houses on nearby land to squatters from Chánguena, but Carlos Vargas, one of the squatters, said the houses were small and inadequate and that it was “an erroneous solution.” The government says the homes are temporary.Vargas admitted, as did many other squatters, that emotions are running high among the community and that any attempt by police to forcefully remove them from the land could provoke violence.Marcelino Ramírez, who says he came to the Chánguena farm in 2003 from Pérez Zeledón, said the squatters will respect the law as long as the law respects them.“What we don’t want is blood,” he said. “But if the government wants that, then unfortunately we’re going to die for this, if we have to die for this.” Facebook Commentslast_img read more

TICONDEROGA NY – Its like William Shatner got

first_img TICONDEROGA, N.Y. – It’s like William Shatner got stuck in a Star Trek time warp.The 87-year-old actor visited a doppelganger of the original Starship Enterprise set in upstate New York for a fans’ weekend on Friday. He wore a dark jacket this time instead of his gold Capt. James T. Kirk shirt, but the command chair was still comfortable and the blinking lights of the bridge were just as he remembered them.“This set is exactly the way it was 50-odd years ago,” Shatner said. “And it’s like it’s coming back to a house you might have been born in and you look around and it’s like, ‘Wow! It’s bigger and smaller than I remember. And yet it’s the same.’”Shatner said the set reminded him of both the emotional moments and the laughs, like when crew members would forget to open the sliding doors as he approached.“I’d crash into the door,” he said with a laugh. “And then I began to learn to make my one ‘whhhoshhh’ sound as I went out the door.”The “Captain on the Bridge” weekend runs Friday and Saturday at a tourist attraction boasting replicas of the original series’ bridge, transporter room, sick bay and other sets. Tickets ranged as high as $1,500 for a chance to ask Shatner questions on the bridge, though “red shirt” tickets were $85. The attraction’s website made clear “Mr. Shatner is NOT leading tours!”Finding a Star Trek set built at the site of an old dollar store near the Vermont border seems highly illogical, but it was a labour of love for local resident James Cawley. The professional Elvis impersonator began the years-long process of building the sets in 1997 after inheriting a copy of the original Enterprise blueprints from a costume designer on the original show.At first, Cawley and his crew used the sets to make a series of Star Trek fan films. Now the sets are a tourist attraction.Dozens of fans waited outside Friday to greet Shatner, whose TV show that went off the air almost 50 years ago.
