Hurricane Sandy has shut down production on at least half a dozen New York television shows and feature films, but none more ironically than Russell Crowe's “Noah.” Writer-director Darren Aronofsky's film about the biblical flood and ark postponed shooting Monday, but the more pressing question is what will happen to the movie's colossal boat. Aronofsky's production team built two massive ships - one inside a Brooklyn sound stage, the other in the water at Oyster Bay, N.Y. And Oyster Bay, a small inlet on the Long Island Sound, is very much in the path of Hurricane Sandy, with local flooding and wind gusts of up to 63 mph reported in the area . The outdoor ark, which measures 450 feet long and is 75 feet tall and 45 feet wide, was not intended to be seaworthy.

She did, however, choose sensible footwear before making her imprint: flats from British cheap-chic mecca Topshop.

Amazon can already track your book purchases, recommend titles based on your latest browsing history, and is annoyingly great at peppering the websites you see with ads based on your shopping habits. So would it surprise you to learn that the online bookseller is getting into the intelligence game? Federal Computer Week, a magazine that covers technology and the federal government, is reporting that Amazon has signed a contract with the CIA , agreeing to help the agency develop cloud computing technology over the next decade. While the magazine's anonymous sources confirmed the $600-million deal, Amazon, America's largest online book retailer, and the CIA both declined to confirm it. "As a general rule, the CIA does not publicly disclose details of our contracts, the identities of our contractors, the contract values, or the scope of work," a CIA spokesperson told FCW. If the details reported are true, it will be a game-changer for both the online retailer and the Central Intelligence Agency. Amazon Web Services will help the CIA to build a "private cloud," which means the computing technologies will be hosted at the CIA's own data center, allaying fears about the security of intelligence information online. The Amazon-built cloud will help the CIA keep up with emerging technologies. While these specifics are a bit confusing for the non-computer-literate, suffice it to say the deal is big news for both entities. There is a lot of competition...

Patrick Demarchelier photographed Naya Rivera, Jennifer Morrison, Christa Miller and Clare Bowen wearing their birthday suits by a pool in Beverly Hills for Allure's annual nudes issue, on sale Monday. The nudes are carefully posed so you don't see more than might be exposed by a bathing suit. Amanda Seyfried is the issue's cover girl, but she kept her clothes on. [Allure] It may seem strange that Seyfried didn't disrobe for Allure. After all, she plays the title role of 1970s porn star Linda Lovelace in "Lovelace," so she isn't totally demure.
