This would be UT’s second win overall and first SEC win of the season.This would be huge for a program trying to revive itself. The Volunteers had a brutal start to the season which included losses to Georgia State and BYU. The Volunteers’ lone win of the season so far came against Chattanooga in week 3.Fans are very excited for Maurer and how he’ll continue to develop. In his first start last week vs. No. 3 Georgia, he threw for 259 yards and two touchdowns.Hopefully, Maurer’s injury isn’t too serious and he can return to game-action next week.

‘Aguero is outrageous’

first_imgSergio Aguero is an “outrageous” talent, according to former Manchester City star Michael Brown, with the Argentine considered to be one of the best strikers to have played in the Premier League.A prolific South American frontman has been in England since 2011, with a £35 million ($45m) deal taking him to the Etihad Stadium.That price tag has been made to look like quite the bargain, with Aguero now the all-time leading goalscorer in City’s illustrious history. Article continues below Editors’ Picks Ox-rated! Dream night in Genk for Liverpool ace after injury nightmare Messi a man for all Champions League seasons – but will this really be Barcelona’s? Are Chelsea this season’s Ajax? Super-subs Batshuayi & Pulisic show Blues can dare to dream Time for another transfer? Giroud’s Chelsea spell set to end like his Arsenal career Questions were asked of whether he could thrive under Pep Guardiola when the former Barcelona boss took over, but he has succeeded in taking his game to another level.“He’s struggling isn’t he! He’s outrageous,” ex-City midfielder Brown told Goal.“You watch him and I thought two years ago he would have been one to probably miss out, I didn’t think he’d be for Guardiola, but he’s changed to how Pep thinks. You can see in his game that out of possession he gets into positions better, he looks a little sharper and a little bit fitter.“But there’s no doubt that his finishing ability is there for all to see. When a chance comes, he finds that little bit of space and puts the ball in the net. He’s brilliant, how he can have that composure in front of goal in tight spaces, that no backlift goal he can do. He’s a special player.”Sergio Aguero Manchester City 2019Pressed on whether Aguero could be considered the closest man to Alan Shearer when it comes to the best out-and-out goalscorers to have graced the English top-flight in the modern era, Brown added: “Possibly. There aren’t many that you can say are better than Sergio Aguero.“Alan Shearer was different but their goals speak for themselves. When you’re playing for a top team as well, like Aguero is, then you are going to get opportunities and minutes and you can see now that it’s hard for him to be left out.”Aguero currently has 172 Premier League goals to his name, placing him sixth on the all-time list.He is only three adrift of Arsenal legend Thierry Henry and five behind Chelsea icon, and current boss, Frank Lampard.Shearer sits well clear at the summit on 260, but Aguero should be setting his sights on joining two ex-England captains as members of an exclusive 200 club – with Manchester United great Wayne Rooney the only other man to have passed that mark on 208.Michael Brown was a pundit on EFL on Quest live from The University of Bolton Stadium on Saturday, the home of Bolton Wanderers.

Report on Mannar grave reveals samples from years 14001650 AD

The full report on the carbon dating was submitted to the Mannar Magistrate and made public today. Beta Analytics was selected as the laboratory as it is a recognised and accredited institution that specializes in bomb pulse carbon dating. Radio carbon dating calculates the amount of Carbon-14 in bone and teeth samples and establishes the approximate time when an animal or plant was alive. The carbon dating report on the Mannar mass grave has revealed that the bone samples taken from the site were from the years between 1400-1650 AD.Six bone samples obtained from the Mannar mass grave, located at the Sathosa Building in the Mannar town (Case No B/232/2018), were sent for radiocarbon dating, to Beta Analytics in Miami, Florida, USA. It is a form of testing used in archaeology and forensic science for dating human remains. Where the skeletons are of persons who died after World War II, bomb pulse carbon 14 dating can provide a narrower range of time period in which the deaths occurred.The report from the laboratory, along with results from other examinations carried out by the investigation team headed by Dr Rajapaksa, will help address key questions, including if these human remains, numbering over 300 skeletons as of 22 January, are from one ormultiple historical periods.
