  •     It seems as if Survivor will be airing yet another show in 2005 as Survivor-10 or Survivor-Palau.I wonder how much these show actually help the host country? For example, the country domain is .pw and [...] could be used as a fan site for Survivor-Palau. Have the show's producers considered this?
  •     Like a new book, there is no any written notes or highlights in this book and the price is reasonable
