Shortly after, the medical staff assisted him to the locker room.Considering the fact that Maurer has suffered a head injury in back-to-back games, the Volunteers could decide to sit out their quarterback for precautionary reasons.For now, it’ll be on Guarantano to keep Tennessee within striking distance of Alabama.Alabama currently leads 14-10 over Tennessee in the second quarter.

His bad luck with injuries continued this weekend as he took yet another shot to the head.Maurer replaced Jarrett Guarantano earlier this season at quarterback. Coming into this Saturday, the freshman had 364 passing yards, two touchdowns and four interceptions.While the Volunteers are holding their own against the Alabama Crimson Tide in Tuscaloosa, the offense may have to compete without Maurer for the rest of the game.During the first quarter of tonight’s SEC showdown, Maurer took a massive shot from Alabama linebacker Shane Lee while completing a pass to Jauan Jennings.last_img read more

Is Pep’s ‘fourth-season syndrome’ about to wreck City’s title hopes?

first_img“The day I see the light go out in my players’ eyes, I’ll know it’s time to go.”That’s what Pep Guardiola said when he decided to call time on his incredible reign at Barcelona in 2012, according to Marti Perarnau’s book ‘Pep Confidential’.After a disappointing fourth year at the Camp Nou – disappointing in that he only won a Copa del Rey, finished second in La Liga and reached a Champions League semi-final – Guardiola decided he had run out of energy and ideas. 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 Watching him looking pensive in training ahead of Manchester City’s Premier League clash with Crystal Palace and receiving an encouraging hug from assistant coach Rodolfo Borrell, you could be forgiven for thinking that something similar was happening again.Eight points behind leaders Liverpool and with two defeats in eight Premier League games – to Norwich and Wolves, teams that have spent the early parts of the season in the bottom half of the table – City are not the same awesome, wrecking machine that has amassed the two greatest points totals in English football history.His side came back from seven points behind last season but Guardiola admits that doesn’t mean it is going to happen again.“I don’t believe in these kind of things – it happened last season, [therefore] it’s going to happen this season,” he said ahead of the trip to Palace.Jamal Lewis Todd Cantwell Norwich City Pep Guardiola Man City“What I believe is playing better and better and better. The reason why we didn’t play quite good against Wolves in some moments, that is only my worry.“This week I looked at what we have done, what is my feeling about the team, what is my feeling about the way we’ve played against this system and the other ones, what we have to do. I’m only concerned about that.“I don’t anticipate my future – I’m going to lose this game or win. You don’t live if you think about that. Sport is present, stay in the present and prepare.” Ahead of this season, Guardiola was concerned about keeping things fresh in his fourth campaign with City.His side were pushed hard in the last two intense campaigns – particularly the last one featuring an extraordinary battle with Liverpool when neither faltered in the run-in and City triumphed by a point.At Barcelona, he went into a fourth season on the back of three titles and two Champions Leagues but the Catalans’ points total would drop from 99 and 96 to 91 as he missed out on a league win for the only time during his four years in charge.But the biggest difference between his final season in Spain and this one in Manchester was the chaotic backdrop. Guardiola was facing an acrimonious rivalry with Real Madrid’s Jose Mourinho that became so toxic it poisoned El Clasico encounters.Now, Mourinho is long gone from United and Guardiola’s relationship with main rival Jurgen Klopp is far more friendly and respectful.There was also a power battle off the field among Barcelona’s presidency whereas City is possibly the most settled club on the planet. This time, the problems have been more on-field than off.City have had a particularly bad run of injuries.​ Aymeric Laporte, now the senior player at the heart of the defence following the exit of captain Vincent Kompany, has been ruled out until the new year with a knee injury.His strength and composure have been missed and that has been compounded by the loss of fellow centre-back John Stones with muscle injuries.Leroy Sane was already ruled out for six months with a cruciate knee ligament injury while Benjamin Mendy’s return from a similar problem is being taken cautiously.Aymeric Laporte Manchester City 2019-20But it’s difficult to get away from the fact that City haven’t been playing well on the pitch.The decision not to replace Kompany has proved to be a mistake with City’s defence less than secure. And it’s had the knock-on effect of moving Fernandinho out of his influential role as a holding midfielder with the relatively raw Rodri forced to play there every week as he acclimatises to English football.However, there is no reason why Guardiola can’t turn things around.His side remain full of desire to succeed in Europe, having never gone beyond the quarter-finals of the Champions League under the Catalan. And with the aforementioned injured players coming back in time for the knockout stages, there will be plenty of excitement in the new year.Liverpool’s perfect form won’t last all season but City must stay within touching distance. A tough trip to Selhurst Park after the international break is about as difficult a game as they could face to test their title credentials.“We have 50 games in all competitions,” Guardiola said. “We have to play to enjoy, have fun and we will see. I’m not the guy who thinks he’s going to win all titles we are going to play and all the Premier Leagues for the rest of my life.”After Saturday, we’ll get a better idea of whether it’s fourth-season syndrome or just an unusual start for an unusually brilliant team.

【TOKYO EAST】Old Styled House Curry Restaurant Spice Cafe in Oshiage

first_imgOld and modern co-exist under the Sky tree in the town of Oshiage, and that you’ll find some uniqueness there as well… “Spice Café” is located inside a traditional Japanese style house.The house of “Spice Café” is mantled with ivy like this.In a back alley, the café looks like a hidden place, but customers constantly revisit there. It’s because the owner of the restaurant has confidence in his cuisine, and that has been proven by the customers.The entrance looks like this.If you go through the entrance, you can see the modern interior of the building that was reconstructed by the stuff of the restaurant. The wood grain makes you feel the tree’s warmth. The reconstruction was well planned with the texture of the wood, the round window put in the wall covered with plaster, and the sunshine from outside. With the idea of being coexistent with nature, the elaborated idea was reproduced in the house.The main cuisine of “Spice Café” is curry. Originally, curry is from India, but the owner has explored the world and studied cooking to change its original taste to be more acceptable for Japanese people.The menu has four basic dishes and two meals that change from day to day. The restaurant’s original dish, “Lassam,” is especially the staff’s recommendation. You will be addicted to the spice, and other flavors of curry are also great.Not only curry, but also we, Japanese, borrowed cultures, food, and different styles of living from foreign countries and improved them to match with Japanese people’s taste since a long time ago. And I think it’s been successful reinventing things into a “Japanese style,” just like the curry at “Spice Café”. If you visit Oshiage, you should not miss out on the yummy curry!InformationSpice CafePhone:03-3613-4020Nearest station:Ten minutes walk from A1 exit at Oshiage (in front of Skytree) stationBusiness hours:11:45~22:00No business day:Mondays、The third week of TuesdayHP: read more

Loblaw says it ordered 25 Tesla electric trucks wants fully electric fleet

MONTREAL — Loblaw Companies Ltd. says it is among the first purchasers of Tesla’s new electric truck.Canada’s largest supermarket chain (TSX:L) says it has pre-ordered 25 of the vehicles called the Tesla Semi.“It’s part of our commitment to electrify our fleet,” spokeswoman Catherine Thomas said.Earlier this month, Loblaw committed to have a fully electric fleet as part of the company’s commitment to reduce its carbon footprint by 2030.That would involve adding 350 zero-emission vehicles and more than 2,500 trailers to the fleet.The Ontario-based grocer said removing diesel from its transport trucks and refrigerated trailers could reduce more than 94,000 tonnes of carbon dioxide emissions annually, the equivalent of removing more than 20,000 cars from the road.By 2030, Loblaw expects to have reduced emissions from electricity use by 35 per cent, transportation by 25 per cent, and refrigerants by 50 per cent.First deliveries of the Tesla trucks are expected in 2019.No price for the trucks was provided, but reservations for the Tesla Semi cost US$5,000 per truck.Wal-Mart says it has also pre-ordered 15 vehicles, including 10 for its Canadian routes.“We have a long history of testing new technology — including alternative-fuel trucks — and we are excited to be among the first to pilot this new heavy-duty electric vehicle,” Wal-Mart spokesman Ryan Curell wrote in an email.“We believe we can learn how this technology performs within our supply chain, as well as how it could help us meet some of our long-term sustainability goals, such as lowering emissions.”Tesla declined to identify any other Canadian buyers for the truck that it says can go from zero to 100 kph in five seconds without a trailer, compared to 15 seconds for a comparable diesel truck.It says the Tesla Semi requires no shifting for smooth acceleration and its brakes recover 98 per cent of kinetic energy to the battery.“Overall, the Semi is more responsive, covers more miles than a diesel truck in the same amount of time, and more safely integrates with passenger car traffic,” it said on the company’s website.Tesla says that a fully loaded Semi consumes less than two kilowatt-hours of energy per mile and has a range of about 800 kilometres. That could save owners at least US$200,000 in fuel costs over 1.6 million km.The Canadian Press read more
