No. 4 Georgia rallies before rolling to 37-10 win against Arkansas

Whatever it was, Georgia got over it in the third quarter, and quarterback Stetson Bennett rallied the Bulldogs to a 37-10 road victory over Arkansas in the season opener Saturday.But the win came only after getting a big scare from the Razorbacks and new coach Sam Pittman.

Please, The Police
Like all life as we know now, Europe says the Ghana Police Service has its origins with them—so there you have it, modern police systems find their roots in Europe. The pseudo-continent had at the start of the 18 century, experienced exponential escalations in crime, especially in their cities—perhaps, in part owing to the industrial revolution the region was experiencing. The law enforcement mechanisms in place during and prior to this period had been, among others—and Mr. Gandhi would not like this—something close to: an eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth.Except when I stole an eye of yours...
