Betty asks…

Realistically how much longer do you think tna will be on tv?

There on a big decline and already get terrible raitings wwe is improving and going up

admin answers:

They wont be cancelled.

What most fans dont know is that TNA is bigger over seas than they are in the United States. Even if TNA lost SPIKE TV and stopped touring in the United States they would still flourish from their over seas sales and TV revenue.

The only thing holding TNA back in the United States is TNA. They just havent taken off like they have in other countries however it’s important to understand that no wrestling company ever became huge in 10 years, 20 years or even 30 years. It took WWE over 35 years before they became the #1 wrestling company in the world. So you can see how TNA being around for only 11 years it would be unfair to expect them to even compete with the WWE at this point.

Besides all that the WWE and WCW didnt have to compete with the UFC which has sucked up about half of the viewers from pro wrestling.

Also, just to give you a quick 411 on TNA. The Carters bought 70% of TNA in 2002 for 250k. In 2006 the Nielsen ratings company offered to buy TNA for 60 million dollars. The Carters turned it down. Today TNA’s value is estimated at 100 million dollars. They have multi million dollar state of the art production studio at their headquarters much like WWE does and they have offices overseas much like WWE does.

As for being cancelled, Despite their low ratings of .9 to 1.5 (1.5 was their highest rating to date when they went head to head with RAW on Monday night) Despite the low ratings TNA is still the highest rated programming on SPIKE TV. Even the UFC came in 2nd to TNA when they were on SPIKE.

TNA just needs to get there name out their nationally.

Years ago WWE released a series of commercials when they launched the attitude era. The commercials aired during the Superbowl and were viewed by 100 million people. TNA needs to do something like that.

TNA is in no danger of going bankrupt.

Also, PANDA ENERGY does not put money into TNA. They do not own TNA. Robert Carter ownes 70% of TNA, Jeff Jarrett ownes 30% of TNA however, he is a silent partner.

FYI – Jeff Jarrett’s estate value before he sold TNA to the Carters was about 125k in 2002. Today the value of Jeff Jarretts estate is a whopping 30 million dollars. He’s loaded BECAUSE of TNA’s success over the last 11 years.

And Robert Carter who ownes 70 % of TNA and also ownes Panda energy is a billionaire. He has already stated that he will never sell TNA because it’s a cash cow. Since buying TNA he’s invested 6.25 million dollars on the company…250k to buy 70% of the company and 6 million to improve production and talent on the roster. TNA cut him a check in full in less than one year after they bought the company. There for TNA is not in debt or in any financial peril.

And many of the talents have debunked the story created by a WWE fan that TNA’s pay check are late. Even a recently fired TNA talent stated that was a lie and that TNA has always paid on time.

You really need to keep a eye out for BS info that is created by WWE fans. They love to bash TNA and make TNA sound like the next WCW when in fact WWE is more like WCW than TNA. TNA is actually more like the WWE of the 90′s. TNA only has 3 talents or staff members who worked in WCW. WWE has over 100 employees, staff members , scouts, production staff, talent and other positions that worked in WCW. Even WWE head of talent is WCW former Head of talent and WWE’s talent trainers are mostly all former WCW wrestlers and not even good ones at that. Norman Smiley, Hugh Morris, Fit Finley, Kidman, Dusty Roades, Arn anderson, Lex Luger and Terry Taylor.

Donald asks…

Are there any other books like Graceling by Kristin Cashore?

I love the book Graceling and the series by Kristin Cashore, but I can’t find any other books like hers. does anyone have any suggestions?

admin answers:

I love Graceling and the whole medieval genre. Other books that I love just as much and that are similar are:

The Study Series by MARIA V. SNYDER. The first book is called “Poison Study” and there are 3 books in the series (there is also a spin off series now as well, which starts with Stormglass) and she has a new series starting with “Touch of Power” that is great as well. Here’s what I can find on amazon.com:

Yelena has committed the ultimate sin and for that, she has been sentenced to die by hanging. Yet when she faces the man whom will send her to the noose, she receives an offer instead to live. Granted, there are catches, first and foremost the duty of food taster. Assassination by poison is ever a favored way to strike at the Commander and as the next prisoner to be executed, and as they need to fill the position, Yelena is next in line for the job. Thinking escape is surely in her future, she takes on the dangerous new duty. Her new handler though, Valek, has many tricks up is sleeve and soon Yelena finds it’s not as easy to escape as she thought.

“The Witches of Eileanan” by Kate Forsyth
6 books in the series ‘Dragonclaw’ is the first. From Library Journal
In a land where witchcraft has been forbidden, young Isabeau learns the old ways in order to take her place in the battle to overcome the forces that threaten her world. Australian poet Forsyth’s fantasy debut details a richly imagined universe with a distinctly Celtic flavor and introduces a resourceful and courageous protagonist. This first novel in a projected trilogy belongs in libraries where the demand for epic fantasy is high.

In the Celtic land of Eileanan, witches and magic have been outlawed, and those caught for practicing witchcraft are put to death! It is a land ruled by an evil Queen, where sea-dwelling Fairgean stir, and children vanish in the night. But in a valley deep in the mountains, young Isabeau grows to womanhood under the guidance of an elderly witch, and must set out on a quest, carrying the last hopes of the persecuted witches.

The “Pellinor Series” by ALISON CROGGON. It goes The Gift, The Riddle, The Crow and The Singing.

Maerad is a slave in a desperate and unforgiving settlement, taken there as a child when her family is destroyed in war. She doesn’t yet know she has inherited a powerful gift, one that marks her as a member of the noble School of Pellinor and enables her to see the world as no other can. It is only when she is discovered by Cadvan, one of the great Bards of Lirigon, that her true identity and extraordinary destiny unfold. Now, she and her mysterious teacher must embark on a treacherous, uncertain journey through a time and place where the forces of darkness wield an otherworldly terror.

“The Old Kingdom Trilogy” by Garth Nix. It goes Sabriel, Lirael and then Abhorsen.

Darker than most fantasy this is a trilogy to really immerse oneself in. Sabriel is at boarding school until her father goes missing and she is forced to return to the land of her birth and assume the role of Abhorsen, guardian of the nine levels of death and warrior against the evil forces that lurk there. With free-magic an untameable peril that daily confronts the stability of the Old Kingdom Sabriel has her work cut out to develop the necessary skills to survive the onrushing cataclysm. Imagine Harry Potter cast into the wilderness and made to fight Voldemort without the safety and education of Hogwarts and his friends. This is stripped down magical fantasy, spectacularly characterised and awesomely exciting.

I hope you like the sound of at least one of them ^_^

Ken asks…

Can anyone give me a short and sweet summary of the book called A Series of Unfortunate Events Book the 12th?

I really need to have a quick summary, forgot to read this book for reading class and I’m going to be totally screwed, so I need to know a summary of the book A SERIES OF UNFORTUNATE EVENTS: THE PENULTIMATE PERIL – Book the twelfth (12)th.

Any help would be greatly appreciated you guys =).

admin answers:

Okay…let me tell you as much as I can remember. This is going to take you only 5 min…it’s very short and sweet compared to the time it’ll take you to read the book. Oops, sorry for wasting your time.

The Baudelaires go with Kit Snicket to Hotel Denouement, where the Baudelaire disguise as concierges. A VFD meeting with all the noble and treachry people is about to take place and a lot of volunteers are coming to the hotel, including Sir, Principal Nero, Charles, Hal, Mr. Poe, and Olaf and Esme. The sugar bowl is suppose to be brought to the hotel by crows and land inside the laundry room.
The Baudelaires meet a noble person called Dewey, who has a library under a pond in front of the hotel. However, Count Olaf comes and threatens to kill Dewey if the Baudelaires do not leave with him. Count Olaf has a harpoon and points it at Dewey. However, the Baudelaires manage to get hold of the harpoon, but shoots Dewey and kills him.
The Baudelaires are then brought to trial in the hotel by Justice Strauss as the judge. Everyone is blindfolded because “the law is blind.” While everyone is blind folded, Count Olaf takes Justice Strauss away and the Baudelaires chase after them.
Count Olaf forces the Baudelaires to help him unlock the lock to the laundry room, so he can get the sugar bowl. The sugar bowl is not there.
Count Olaf, seeing that there are a lot of volunteers in the hotel, starts a fire in the laundry room and goes to the top floor with the Baudelaires.
At the top floor, there is a giant swimming pool, with a boat in it. Count Olaf forces the Baudelaires onto the boat with him and pushes the boat into the pond (which for some reason leads to the sea.)
The hotel is left to burn and the Baudelaires are trapped on a boat with Count Olaf.

For more information, you can always check on http://en.wikipedia.org or of course, go to the library and borrow the book out.

Good luck and happy reading. Cheers!

With all due respect,
