Things you did not know about the Eiffel tower

ADVERTISEMENT


As the most iconic symbol of France, the Eiffel Tower is one of the top tourist attractions, and the highlight of Paris, City of Love. The Iron Lady has reached her 128th year this year and is one of the finest sights in all of France. If you’ve never been to this majestic construct, the time to go is now – she’s pretty stunning! In fact, over 300 million people have gazed upon this epic structure and been inspired.

There are so many wonderful facts about the Eiffel Tower and plenty of things we already know about it. But, there are also a lot of things we don’t know about her, and some of them are much more epic and interesting than we would ever have considered. Tall, chic, and rich in history, the Eiffel Tower is the perfect Parisian landmark, and here are some of the most awesome things you never knew about The Iron Lady.

She wasn’t built to last

The Eiffel Tower, incredibly, was only actually designed to last for 20 years! Constructed by Gustave Eiffel to commemorate the French Revolution, it was meant to showcase the industrial might of France as a nation. Now, the plan was that it would be pulled down after twenty years – point proven and all that! Gustave Eiffel convinced the Government to leave it up, and, for a time it doubled as a telegraph transmitter. This could even have been the decisive factor that saved it from being torn down.

You can ice skate on there

The viewing platform of the Eiffel Tower actually doubles up as an ice rink in the winter, and you can buy tickets to go skate up there. This is the perfect choice for those who are looking for something romantic to do while in the City of Love. This is an amazing experience, and one you may not get again, so we suggest you make the most of it as much as you possibly can. Situated on the first floor of the tower, the ice rink is open from December through February, and has an amazing 50-plus foot bar where you can get mulled wine and all sorts!

Repaint job

A structure as large, and old as the Eiffel Tower, can’t look this majestic simply by being left to its own devices. It needs constant attention and no small amount of TLC. The tower herself has actually been repainted 18 times over the years, which, considering her age, is not actually as much as we were expecting. But this could have something to do with the fact that it requires 60 tons of paint, just to give it its first coat! Yikes! This is clearly not a job that can be done in a single afternoon!

It’s been replicated

It might surprise you to know that the Eiffel Tower has actually been replicated numerous times. In fact, at last count, there were over 40 different replicas of the tower all over the world. These include one in Las Vegas and one in Tokyo. Paris, Texas also has one, and it wears a stetson, in typical Texas style! It’s amazing that there have been so many replicas of this wonderful structure, but that goes to show the impact and importance of the tower throughout the world.

The Eiffel Tower is one of the most recognizable constructs in the world, and it’s got a lot going for it. Not only is it incredibly beautiful and iconic, but it is also one of the most interesting and architecturally impressive feats in the modern world. Next time you visit Paris, you have to go see the Eiffel Tower, and, if you’re there in the winter, please be sure you go ice skating on the first floor.

Document details scrapped deal for Trump Tower Moscow

Around the time presidential candidate Donald Trump was touting his real estate dealings at a Republican primary debate, a proposal was in the works to build a Trump Tower in Russia that would have given his company a $ 4 million upfront fee, no upfront costs, a percentage of the sales, and control over marketing and design. And that’s not all: the deal included the opportunity to name the hotel spa after his daughter Ivanka.

FASHION DEAL UPDATE:

Donald Trump Heads To Trump Tower, Protesters Await

NEW YORK (AP) — President Donald Trump went home to Trump Tower on Monday for the first time since his inauguration, with a throng of chanting protesters awaiting — but never seeing — him.

Thousands of demonstrators roared “shame, shame, shame” and “not my president!” while watching for Trump’s motorcade along Manhattan’s Fifth Avenue, but it ultimately approached from another direction. A far smaller crowd of Trump supporters also awaited him.

Onlookers who did see the motorcade greeted it with cellphone cameras and a few obscene gestures.

By the tower, some protesters carried signs with such messages as “impeach” and “the White House is no place for white supremacy.” Chants including “love, not hate — that’s what makes America great” and “New York hates you!” echoed off the surrounding buildings. Nearby, an inflatable, rat-like caricature of Trump stood by The Plaza hotel.

Adam Vazquez had protested at Trump Tower on Election Night and said he returned because he felt the country had hit “a pivotal point,” particularly after the white supremacist rally that descended into violence Saturday in Charlottesville, Virginia. The Republican president’s initial condemnation of bigotry and violence “on many sides, on many sides” spurred two days of pressure to specifically denounce white supremacist groups, which he did Monday.

“It shows you that the president, in a time of crisis, could not step up,” said Vazquez, a 26-year-old video and content producer. “That is something we have to take note of, coming out tonight and showing that this is not OK.”

Meanwhile, about two dozen Trump fans near The Plaza chanted “God bless President Trump” and carried American flags and signs with such sentiments as “now is not the time for divisiveness.”

“We are here to show President Trump … that he has a lot of fans here, even in liberal New York City, even in Manhattan,” said Ariel Kohane, a 46-year-old member of a group called Jews for Trump.

He said he supported the president because of his views on national security, immigration and fighting radical Islamists and crime, among other issues. The anti-Trump protesters, to him, are “left-wing, liberal Communist snowflakes.”

With supporters and anti-Trump demonstrators penned behind police barricades across the sidewalk, both sides yelled at each other, “Go home!”

A block south of Trump Tower, police officers with bullhorns confronted protesters pressing against and straining the barricades, telling the demonstrators to step back. Police said two people were arrested for disorderly conduct amid the protests but didn’t say where or when.

Police stationed sand-filled sanitation trucks as barriers around Trump’s signature skyscraper and layers of metal police barricades around the main entrance.

After Trump was elected, security around the tower ramped up dramatically, with barricades and checkpoints manned by scores of uniformed police officers. The security precautions have been lessened somewhat in Trump’s absence but still have inconvenienced residents and business owners in the busy area, home to stores such as Tiffany and Louis Vuitton.

Trump, a native New Yorker, said Friday that he had stayed away since January because he realized the impact of the street closings and other aspects of a presidential visit.

“I would love to go to my home in Trump Tower, but it’s very, very disruptive to do,” he said.

And protesters, including City Council Speaker Melissa Mark-Viverito, were not welcoming him.

Gabby Parra, a 17-year-old high school senior from Teaneck, New Jersey, said she did not have “the proper words to describe” her dislike for Trump. She said she feels the president dehumanizes minorities, noting that he launched his campaign by portraying Mexico as a source of rapists and murderers coming into the U.S.

The Rev. Jan Powell, a retired minister of the United Church of Christ, is troubled by Trump, too, and particularly resented his response to the violence in Virginia.

Still, she said, “I pray for him every day. We are both human beings.”

ENTERTAINMENT UPDATE:

Dark Tower Narrowly Defeats Dunkirk at the Box Office

(NEW YORK) — The modest result for “The Dark Tower,” starring Idris Elba and Matthew McConaughey, was in line with expectations heading into the weekend but well shy of initial hopes for a possible franchise-starter

J.J. Abrams and Ron Howard are among the directors who previously tried to tackle King’s magnum opus, a seven-book series that melds sci-fi with horror and other genres.

But the long battle to make “The Dark Tower” ended with poor reviews and few fireworks. Still, the movie was made for a relatively modest amount: about $ 60 million, or half of what many other summer movies cost. Sony Pictures also split costs with Media Rights Capital.

“It was always an ambitions and bold undertaking but it was made at the right price,” said Adrian Smith, president of domestic distribution for Sony Pictures.

By comparison, the recent flop “Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets,” which opened with $ 17 million, cost at least $ 180 million to make.

Christopher Nolan’s World War II epic “Dunkirk” slid to second with $ 17.6 million in its third week. It’s now made $ 133.6 million domestically. Other holdovers — “The Emoji Movie” ($ 12.4 million in its second week) and “Girls Trip” ($ 11.4 million in its third week) followed.

Another long-delayed film also made its debut. The Halle Berry thriller “Kidnap” opened with $ 10.2 million. The film, styled after the Liam Neeson “Taken” series,” was released by the new distributor Aviron Pictures after it bought the North American rights from Relativity. Before entering bankruptcy, Relativity had scheduled the film’s release for 2015.

But “Kidnap” still outperformed the week’s other new wide release, the far more anticipated “Detroit.” The Kathryn Bigelow-directed docudrama is also the first release for an upstart distributor.

The first film distributed by Megan Ellison’s Annapurna Pictures, “Detroit” debuted with a disappointing $ 7.3 million after a limited release last week. As a producer, Ellison, the Oracle heiress, has been behind some of the most acclaimed films in recent years, including “Foxcatcher” and “American Hustle.”

“Detroit,” the third collaboration between Bigelow and screenwriter Mark Boal (“The Hurt Locker,” ”Zero Dark Thirty”), reimagines the terror-filled events around the Algiers Motel incident during the 1967 Detroit riots.

“We wish more people had showed up this weekend but we are really, really proud of the movie,” said Erik Lomis, Annapurna’s distribution chief. “The movie got an A-minus CinemaScore and the reviews have been spectacular.”

Though hard-hitting, auteur-driven films are typically fall material, Annapurna timed the release of “Detroit” to the 50th anniversary of the riots. Lomis said the intention was to bring the film to as broad an audience as possible.

“We believe that smart audiences actually want and will see great movies all year round,” he said.

In limited release, Taylor Sheridan’s Indian reservation thriller “Wind River,” starring Jeremy Renner, debuted with a strong per-screen average of $ 13,053 in four theaters. The Weinstein Co. release was written and directed by Sheridan, the screenwriter behind the Oscar-nominated “Hell or High Water.”

Estimated ticket sales for Friday through Sunday at U.S. and Canadian theaters according to comScore. Where available, the latest international numbers also are included. Final domestic figures will be released Monday.

1. “The Dark Tower,” $ 19.5 million ($ 8 million international).

2. “Dunkirk,” $ 17.6 million ($ 25 million international).

3. “The Emoji Movie,” $ 12.4 million ($ 12 million international).

4. “Girls Trip,” $ 11.4 million ($ 1.7 million international).

5. “Kidnap,” $ 10.2 million.

6. “Spider-Man: Homecoming,” $ 8.8 million ($ 9.6 million international).

7. “Atomic Blonde,” $ 8.2 million ($ 5 million international).

8. “Detroit,” $ 7.3 million.

9. “War for the Planet of the Apes,” $ 6 million ($ 31.5 million international).

10. “Despicable Me 3,” $ 5.3 million ($ 21.2 million international).

___

Estimated ticket sales for Friday through Sunday at international theaters (excluding the U.S. and Canada), according to comScore:

1. “Wolf Warrior 2,” $ 163 million.

2. “Once Upon a Time,” $ 38 million.

3. “War for the Planet of the Apes,” $ 31.5 million.

4. “A Taxi Driver,” $ 25.2 million.

5. “Dunkirk,” $ 25 million.

6. “Despicable Me 3,” $ 21.2 million.

7. “The Emoji Movie,” $ 12 million.

8. “Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets,” $ 11 million.

9. “Spider-Man: Homecoming,” $ 9.6 million.

10. “Cars 3,” $ 9.6 million.

‘The Dark Tower’ Review: Blockbuster Take on Stephen King’s Epic Is Major Misfire

So much is so wrong about The Dark Tower, the stunted film version of Stephen King's marvelously dense and dazzling series of eight novels, that it's hard to know where to kick off a critical reckoning. The crux of the problem is that the bestselling author's magnum opus deserves an open-ended miniseries treatment, akin to what HBO has done with Game of Thrones or Peter

Trump Tower Gets Renamed ‘Dump Tower’ On Google Maps

Donald Trump had an unusual place to call home Saturday.

Trump Tower, the president-elect’s New York City residence, was briefly renamed “Dump Tower” on Google Maps, to the amusement of eagle-eyed Internet users.

It’s not clear when the name change took place. People started to tweet about it around 2 p.m. Saturday. Several hours later, a second Manhattan location, the Trump International Hotel & Tower, was also changed to “Dump,” WPIX reported.

By Sunday morning, both locations had been changed back.

A spokeswoman for Google apologized for the mistake but provided no explanation for the meddling.

“Some inappropriate names were surfacing in Google Maps that should not be, and we apologize for any offense this may have caused. Our teams immediately took action and have fixed the issue,” a Google spokeswoman said in an email to The Huffington Post Sunday.
