While it may come as a surprise, Oliver claims he is a fan of wrestling and the WWE, which he finds ”generally entertaining. ” He 's not alone: The WWE has a billion fans on social media and, as per Oliver, earned $930.2 million in revenue last year. WrestleMania, WWE;s flagship event, rakes in more viewers than baseball 's World Series.While WWE is fun to watch, especially compared to every other show that isn 't ”a guy exploding through a table, ” Oliver says there is a very dark side to the franchise, including the ”shockingly high ” death rates of pro wrestlers. The figure is so high mdash;even compared to NFL players mdash;that Oliver jokes it 's like ”test pilots who lied on their resumes ” or ”zookeepers who aren 't going to just let some f ing baboon talk to them like that. ” While Oliver doesn 't get into specifics about the early death rate for wrestlers, he does note that WWE founder and owner Vince McMahon doesn 't provide health insurance or worker 's compensation for the stars. That 's because, according to Oliver, the WWE wrestlers are independent contractors who have exclusive contracts with the WWE and can 't work for anyone else, but are not technically employees of the company.
Have friends in opposition, Mamata didi sends me gifts, PM Modi tells Akshay Kumar Rajasthan: Having come from behind in Assembly polls, BJP may now buck 20 year trend ND Tiwari #039;s son murder case: Crime Branch arrests Rohit Shekar #039;s wife Apoorva Shukla Dipa Chaudhuri and Puneet Gupta Five years to acquire the rights for the Hindi versions, 24 hours to find the people who will translate it from French to Hindi, and another four years to get the first four albums out. You can get a fair idea of what we were attempting, says Dipa Chaudhuri, Editor in Chief, Om Books International, one of the two member team who have worked to get a Hindi version of the famed Asterix comics.

Gaulwasi Asterix, Sone Ki Darati, Asterix Aur Gothwasi and Asterix Talwarbaaz are the four respective titles, priced at Rs 295 each, published by Om Books. One needed to be completely immersed in the over arching narrative of the series, and not simply translating it one album at a time. Something that happened to a particular character in the first one might resurface in the 17th one; one had to be a fan. And since they are the most widely read comics in the world, we couldn t be trivial, says Gupta.
