Stetind and Wagner Moura

Stetind or Stetinden (Lule Sami: Stádda) is a mountain in the municipality of Tysfjord in Nordland county, Norway. It is located about 15 kilometres (9 mi) northeast of the village of Kjøpsvik. The mountain has very smooth sides reaching all the way to the fjord. Stetind has an obelisk-shape which gives it a very distinct look. In 2002 it was voted to be the "National Mountain" of Norway by listeners of NRK. "Stetind i tåke" painted by Peder Balke ca. 1864. Stetind seen from Stefjordneset. Picture by William Cecil Slingsby, 1915.

The mountain had several attempts at first ascents. First was the German Paul Güssfeldt and the Norwegian Martin Ekroll in the summer of 1888. The Dane Carl Hall and the Norwegian mountain guide Mathias Soggemoen attempted in 1889.

Neither group succeeded, but Carl Hall built a cairn on the lower summit about 500 metres (1,600 ft) southeast of the main summit. That cairn is now called Halls fortopp (elevation 1,304 metres or 4,278 feet). Around 1900, William Cecil Slingsby also failed to reach the summit.

It was not until 30 July 1910 that Ferdinand Schjelderup, Carl Wilhelm Rubenson, and Alf Bonnevie Bryn finally reached the summit of Stetind. The weather conditions were good. It was Rubenson's 25th birthday, and he was given the honor of being first in the rope. The hardest part was to pass the smooth crag "Mysosten", which Rubenson finger traversed along a tiny crack. After this passage there was an easy climb to the summit. The same three climbers continued their 1910 tour by making first ascents of the Lofoten summits Svolværgeita and Trakta. Arne Næss, Ralph Høibakk, and K. Friis Baasted did the first winter climb of Stetind in 1963 on the eastern wall. In 1966, Arne Næss and four others were the first ones to summit via the west wall. Name

The shape of the mountain has been compared with a ste which means "anvil" and the last element is the finite form of tind which means "mountain peak". Slingsby characterized Stetind as the ugliest mountain he ever saw.

Early life and education

Moura was born in Rodelas, in the state of Bahia, in the North-East region of Brazil. His mother, Alderiva Moura, was a housewife, and his father, José Moura, was a Sergeant in the Brazilian Air Force. At the age of 13, he moved with his family to Salvador, Bahia.

He graduated in journalism at Federal University of Bahia but decided to become an actor. Career

In 1996 he starred in his first play, Cuida bem de mim. After this he did some commercials and other plays. He started in the cinema in 1999, with the short film Pop Killer and the movie Rádio Gogó. The next year, he participated in the film Woman on Top starring Penélope Cruz.

Later he moved to Rio de Janeiro. There he auditioned for some TV productions, and had his debut in the television series Carga Pesada and Sexo Frágil. He became a well-known TV and movie actor in Brazil. In 2007 he participated in his most acclaimed work in the movies as Captain Nascimento, protagonist of the Golden Bear winner in the 2008 Berlin Film Festival, Elite Squad.

During the preparation for the first Elite Squad film, Wagner and part of the cast were subject to lifelike special forces training conducted by Paulo Stovani, a former captain of BOPE, the elite squad portrayed in the movie. During training, Stovani was asked by the cast director to help "develop" Wagner's aggression for the role, which he attempted to do through repeated sessions of moral abuse. After several days, Stovani finally got the reaction he was looking for, and a little more. He reportedly made a fictional threat to Wagner's family, particularly mentioning Wagner's newborn to which the actor responded with a punch that fractured Stovani's nose. "That's when Captain Nascimento was born", said Stovani.

In 2010, he starred in the sequel to Elite Squad, Elite Squad: The Enemy Within. In 2013, he played "Spider" in the sci-fi film Elysium. Music
