The weeks of heavy rain that triggered historic flooding in northeast Australia this month have been blamed on what climatologists are now calling one of the strongest La Nina events in the Pacific Ocean since record-keeping began a half-century ago. La Nina's global influence is also being blamed for heavy rains in Indonesia and Brazil. But unusually persistent cold weather this winter in Maryland, and in much of the eastern United States, heavy December rains in Southern California, and snow across the Deep South are the work of separate weather patterns in the Arctic, scientists say. Called the Arctic, or North Atlantic, Oscillation, these air and ocean patterns have been unusually persistent for the second winter in a row, overwhelming weather "signals" from the tropical Pacific.

The Australians were complaining Friday about the threadbare state of the Ruimsig Stadium field in the South African town of Roodepoort. The Americans, meanwhile, were sweating out an injury to starting striker Jozy Altidore. The two countries play each other at the stadium today in the final World Cup tuneup for both, but it is Altidore's situation that is the more troubling. The striker's right ankle was hurt during training Wednesday, and Friday evening U.S. Soccer still had him listed as "day-to-day."

Spring break is right around the corner, and the summer travel season is not far behind. You wouldn't know it by the number of ongoing airfare sales and bargain-basement ticket prices. Airlines have not been this desperate for passengers in a long time. That's good news for travelers - there are deals to be found right and left and every which way in between. If you've always wanted to visit England, Ireland, Russia, Australia or a host of other international spots, now is the time. Airfare prices for overseas travel seem to get better (or worse from the airline's point of view)

Filmmaker Baz Luhrmann calls them "banquets of cinema," visual and narrative feasts that offer audiences drama, romance, comedy and that sweeping feeling of being transported to another world. In other words: an epic. Creating an epic is not for the faint of heart or those with limited ambition, which is why the audacious Luhrmann - who reconceived the movie musical with Moulin Rouge! and the Shakespearean tragedy with Romeo + Juliet - deliberately aimed his latest film, Australia, to be on a, well, epic scale.

JORN UTZON, 90 Sydney Opera House architect Jorn Utzon, the Danish architect whose eye-catching, nautically inspired design for the Sydney Opera House in Australia overcame a series of controversies surrounding its budget and acoustics to become one of the most recognizable landmarks of the 20th century, died of a heart attack Saturday at his home in Copenhagen, Denmark, his son, Kim Utzon, told the Associated Press. Few architects have been as closely associated with a single building as Mr. Utzon was with the 1973 opera house, which emerges - part sailboat, part sea creature - from a site on the edge of Sydney Harbor.

Hugh Jackman has achieved legendary success on stages in his native Australia as well as America and England, playing everyone from Curly the singing cowboy in Oklahoma! to gay entertainer Peter Allen in The Boy from Oz. On screen, he's taken a shot at everything from sleazes and sorcerers to lady-killers and superheroes. A pillar of the smash X-Men series as the team's angry, furry young man - the steel-taloned Wolverine - he's breaking off into his own Wolverine series. And in Australia, he holds down the leading-man position in a rare contemporary attempt at a sweeping national melodrama.

Hugh Jackman, a resourceful, good-humored star with the Old School knack for playing rugged and courtly, has just been named People's Sexiest Man Alive. Nicole Kidman, who can be an imposing woman of action (see the thriller Dead Calm), has become a critical favorite for her daring and accomplishment. For my money she was the Sexiest Woman Alive, if only for a few brief moments, in the Baltimore-shot Invasion. These gifted Australians should have been sensational together as lovers in the sprawling Australia.
