Gorge Closure Hits Highway Business

The Weinstein Company sold one of its films for cash as it struggles in the wake of Harvey Weinstein's sexual assault allegations. According to the Wall Street Journal, the company sold rights to 'Paddington Bear Two' to Time Warner for $32 million. The sequel about the fuzzy bear's adventures is due out in January. The first film was one of the studio's biggest hits in the last two years.

Google Maps is taking a page from Waze and putting icons for road closures, construction and car accidents on its maps. As part of the new look, there's also an updated color scheme so different colored icons will show cafes, churches, museums and hospitals.

Tennis superstar Roger Federer has won the most cash prices of any pro-athlete. Federer's victory at the ATP finals in London earlier this week brings his winnings to over $110 million - about $200,000 more than Tiger Woods.
