Very positive news for Tennessee. And it looks like there’s even a possibility Maurer plays on Saturday against Alabama.“Brian took some reps last night at practice, he’s going to be fine, I’m sure,” Pruitt continued to say. This is huge for the Volunteers. They’re coming off their first SEC win of the year over Mississippi State on Saturday. Ever since Maurer took over as the starting quarterback, the team is playing with a fire it wasn’t previously playing with.It’s unlikely Tennessee knocks off Alabama this Saturday. But there’s no doubt this team is slowly improving.Looking ahead at UT’s upcoming schedule, there’s a chance the team tacks on a few more wins. After Bama on Saturday, the Volunteers play South Carolina, UAB, Kentucky, Missouri and Vanderbilt.Hopefully, Maurer can remain healthy and help the Volunteers gain some momentum.

However suspicions arose later after it was reported that there could have been a political connection in the death of Thajudeen. (Colombo Gazette) The police Criminal Investigations Department (CID) informed court today that it suspects murder over the death of former Sri Lanka ruby player Mohommed Wasim Thajudeen.Thajudeen died on May 17, 2012 in Kirulapone when his car crashed into a wall. According to police reports at the time, the rugby player was driving home after attending a party when he lost control of the car and crashed into a wall on Park Road.

“I am delighted that the U.S. Government has helped preserve Sri Lanka’s stunning heritage for future generations to discover,” Ambassador Teplitz said. “This museum demonstrates our appreciation of and respect for Sri Lanka’s culture.” The United States has asserted that it appreciates and respects Sri Lanka’s culture.The US Ambassador to Sri Lanka Alaina B. Teplitz officially opened the Anuradhapura Department of Archeology Museum on September 12, marking the completion of a decade-long, U.S.-funded museum renovation project, which includes upgraded preservation techniques and equipment for its collection. The collection consists of archeologically significant rare objects, including gilded statues, bronze statues, ancient coins, clothing, and tools used in different industries, along with models of the ancient town of Anuradhapura. In 2015, the U.S. Department of State’s Ambassadors Fund for Cultural Preservation (AFCP) provided $150,000 for display cases and the security of the collection. The 20 new dehumidified cases, located in the newly renovated building, are built according to the latest international conservation standards. The grant includes the costs of a newly installed security system and fire detectors along with a disaster management plan. This is the third grant that AFCP has awarded to the Department of Archeology’s Museum in Anuradhapura.In 2009, AFCP awarded $30,000 to catalogue the museum collection. In 2012, a grant of $40,120 was awarded to conserve the museum collection and train Department of Archaeology staff on the conservation of artifacts.
