Ex­plorer Dou­glas Maw­son did what?

Central Leader - - NEWS -

When Maw­son made it back on Fe­bru­ary 8, 1913, the words of his first res­cuer were: ‘‘My God, which one are you?’’ Not at all like ‘‘Dr Liv­ing­stone, I pre­sume’’.

Other ‘‘silly sea­son’’ topics: Dogs recog­nise their own­ers by their eyes, ‘‘An­nie Oys­ter’’ runs a seafood stall at Coro­man­del, a woman called ‘‘Ji­had Jane’’ faces life in jail in the United States and Obama is hot on high fives.

Now, the big one: Chicago Bears have signed quar­ter­back Jay Cut­ler un­til 2020. He set a fran­chise record for to­tal net yards (6109) and 445 points fran­chise leader in pass­ing yards (14,913), pass­ing yards per game (222.6), at­tempts (2090) and com­ple­tions (1258).

In 67 reg­u­lar sea­son starts with the fran­chise, Cut­ler has di­rected the Bears to a 39-28 (.582) record.

Fig­ure all that out.
