With regards to Luisa, some would say that she uses the title of businesswoman to be taken seriously but use still her sexuality to become popular. Is this really the right way to go?

Like nearly all of the 1970s rockers, Ted Nugent built his reputation through years of hard touring, "We played 300 concerts a year, but we didn't make any money. We could pay expenses, keep good speakers in the amps and share hotel rooms. It was tough, but that didn't matter, I'm a hunter I'll sleep in the woods."

The new Walking With Dinosaurs film as I think this is the most realistic portrayal of dinosaurs that's ever been done on the big screen.
