    The 'Lynx' docked in Tampa after a cruising into the bay under full sail Wednesday. The clipper is here to help celebrate the 200th anniversary of the War of 1812 and the 'Star-Spangled Banner.'

The tall ship Lynx made the short trip from St. Petersburg to Tampa this weekend, overshadowing the much smaller yachts in town for the NOOD Regatta. But the real show was on board the replica privateer.

Here's the view from the Lynx as crewmembers sail the ship around the bay, providing a living history lesson in the process.

The ship will remain in Tampa until the end of the month, available for tours and cruises. Then she'll sail back to St. Pete for another two weeks.

    Robert De Niro says Tribeca Film Festival is his passion

    Wednesday, April 16 2014 8:01 AM EDT2014-04-16 12:01:20 GMT
    Robert De Niro is a family man, a filmmaker, an entrepreneur and one of my favorite actors of all time. He's also a co-founder of the Tribeca Film Festival, which has more to see than ever before. De Niro wears just as many hats on screen as he does in real life. The father of six starred in six films last year, owns four restaurants and a hotel, and still finds time each spring for the Tribeca Film Festival, Lower Manhattan's annual cinematic showcase.

    New York City is exploring ways to curb the speed of taxis. The Taxi and Limousine Commission this week issued a request for information on "anti speeding vehicle technologies."  The measures include devices that can intervene when drivers exceed posted speeds and "advisory systems" that can sound alarms when reckless driving is detected.
