“Spartacus” May Get a Spin-off About Julius Caesar

Spartacus may be set to come to an end after this upcoming season, but that may not be all for the franchise.According to Deadline, the show’s network, Starz, is considering commissioning a spin-off of the show, which would surround Roman leader Gaius Julius Caesar. Though it’s still in the early stages of discussion, the spin-off would be helmed by Spartacus executive producer Robert Tapert. The character of Julius Caesar is set to be introduced in the series some time during the upcoming third season, and is portrayed by Australian actor Todd Lasance. As his storyline picks up before he’s begun “his ascent toward ruling the Roman state,” it could be the perfect set-up for a spin-off. The third and final season of Spartacus, titled War of the Damned, is set to premiere on January 25th.

Rajon Rondo Receives Two-Game Suspension for Scuffle with Kris Humphries

Rajon Rondo received a two-game suspension for his scuffle with Kris Humphries in last night’s Brooklyn Netsvs. Boston Celtics game at the TD Garden. The NBA’s assist leader (12.9 per game) was the instigator in the fight that seeped into the stands. Rondo’s shoving of Humpries after the power forward’s hard foul on Kevin Garnett escalated the already tense situation further, leading to the squabble.
The Celtics are 8-7 and currently in fourth place in the Atlantic division. Their All-Star point guard will have to sit out the next two games which are against the Portland Trail Blazers and Milwaukee Bucks. CHECK OUT THE VIDEO..

What Recession? Cyber Monday Breaks Sales Records

This past Monday, the Internet nearly exploded with the biggest discount day of the year. As online shopping becomes more popular, less people wait in lines on the day after Thanksgiving. We agree, we’d rather shop on our computers than stand in inclement weather for Black Friday sales.  According to CBS News, online sales saw a 30 percent rise on Monday. The National Retail Federation forecasts online retail sales will rise up to roughly $586 billion this year. It makes sense, as it takes less time to click and buy than drive around various shops and malls. ComScore Inc, a research firm, states that sales on Monday versus last year rose 17 percent from $1.25 billion to $1.46 billion. Mobile sales this year have played a tremendous role in the increase, thanks to companies like Amazon and Ebay offering amazing deals, and to the increased usage of tablets enabling consumers to shop anywhere.  These numbers prove that Cyber Monday isn’t just a trend. Overall sales have increased because there are more people taking advantage of the sales. Expect to see longer and more extensive sales next year during the Thanksgiving week as companies seek to recover the cost of holding older inventory and introduce new products. Start saving now because with the right amount of cash, you can redo your entire wardrobe next Cyber Monday.
