In a nod to his beloved Vikings, the Minnesota Vikings unveiled a new jersey Tuesday for the 2014 season that pays tribute to Marcus Mariotta.
“Marcus is a true pioneer of modern football,” the team said in a statement, via USA Today.
“He led the way for many with his bold vision for a game in which the players could be the ones who mattered most.”
The jersey, which was unveiled at the Vikings’ training facility, features Mariotta’s “X” on the chest, which is the word for “hero.”
“Mariota is truly one of the most remarkable players of all time, and it’s great to see his jersey get the recognition it deserves,” the Vikings said.
“Marius is the embodiment of our game and its spirit and we all have the privilege of seeing him play on a daily basis.”
Mariota played in the NFL for five seasons from 2007-10 and has a career passer rating of 97.3.
The former Oregon State star also has a knack for getting the ball to his receivers, which led to his nickname, “X,” in the game.
“X is the name that Marcus gave to the receivers in the league, and I think it’s really important to be able to wear it for him,” Mariota said in an interview with The Associated Press earlier this year.
“Because I know what it’s like to be out there and not be able be there.
So it’s a way of putting something in the world, to see it in action.”
The Vikings are in a tough spot with Mariota as the team continues to search for a new quarterback.
The team has already parted ways with Kirk Cousins, who is reportedly being pursued by a number of teams, and the Vikings have yet to land a new starter.
By Arun Sharma & Anurag Sharma | 17 January 2018 15:25:47 The ancient manuscripts of India are a treasure trove of insights into the lives and thought of the people who wrote them, researchers say.
The work was carried out by the University of California at Santa Cruz’s Illuminated Manuscripts Project and includes over 2,000 medieval manuscripts.
These were written by the world’s greatest writers and artists and include works by Leonardo da Vinci, Michelangelo, Caravaggio, Giambattista Vico, and Renzo Piano, as well as more recent artists such as Meryl Streep and Jennifer Lopez.
“We wanted to document the lives of the authors and the cultures they lived in,” said UC Santa Cruz associate professor of linguistics, professor of history and linguistics Anuram Sharma.
“The manuscripts have a fascinating history.
They’re rich in detail, rich in their ideas and the insights they can provide us with about the past,” he added.
The team used Google Maps to track the location of the ancient manuscripts.
The researchers identified three major cities that feature prominently in the texts: Amritsar in West Bengal, Bengaluru in Tamil Nadu and Madurai in Kerala.
They identified the locations of other important cities as Calcutta in Uttar Pradesh, Mumbai in Gujarat, and Kolkata in Andhra Pradesh.
The maps also revealed other cities where the ancient texts were written.
In one manuscript, the authors write about the “beautiful landscape of Bengaluru, one of the best places for artists, writers and scholars to meet and exchange ideas”, as they write about their home city.
The manuscripts also include the works of the late poet Bhagwat Ramachandra.
The research team used the Google Earth satellite to locate the ancient manuscript locations and then used the maps to find out where people lived, worked and spent their days.
It was then able to determine which areas were likely to be the most important places in the manuscripts.
“This is important because it gives us insight into the social and economic life of these authors and their cities,” said professor of language, linguistics and literary studies, Dr Arun Gupta, from the University’s Department of Linguistics and Cultural Studies.
“These manuscripts provide us the insight to what their lives were like and what their place in the world was like,” he said.
The University has mapped more than 2,200 manuscripts from ancient India and more than 1,000 from the 15th century.
Professor Sharma said the maps of ancient manuscripts could also be used to help historians to better understand the cultures and traditions of ancient India.
“They give us insights into their life, their lives in the past, what they did and what they thought about their time,” he explained.
