The Uruguayan saw the Black Cats score two own goals on their way to their biggest ever Premier League defeat as a Graziano Pelle brace, as well as goals from Jack Cork, Dusan Tadic, Victor Wanyama and Sadio Mane, sealed a memorable afternoon for the hosts.
In the end, this isn’t a question for theory, it’s a question for data. The simplest way to figure it out would be to do head-to-head comparisons of all possible diets in large randomized trials. That is, take a group of people who want to lose weight, randomly assign half of them to Atkins and half to South Beach, say, and compare the weight loss in the two groups. Do that again and again and again for all possible diet comparisons, and you’d have your results.
This is rarely done, however. Much more common are randomized trials that compare a single diet to no diet. The reason is pretty simple: Companies selling the diets are funding many of these studies, and thus a major goal of the research is to show that the diet works. A company will find larger weight-loss effects if it compares its diet to no diet than to another diet.
But all is not lost. A recent review paper in The Journal of the American Medical Association does exactly what we want: It reports head-to-head comparisons of different types of diets, and even individual named diets. The researchers use the available studies — which typically compare each diet to no diet — to draw conclusions about how diets compare to one another.
Take the most common final score, for example. In 188,060 league games,2 the final tally was most often 1-0, proof, for Curley, that soccer was as low-scoring as he suspected. This result has occurred in more than 30,000 games — 16 percent of the total. Other common scores: 2-1 (about 27,000 games), 2-0 (about 22,000) and 1-1 (about 22,000).
Emergent is a real-time rumor tracker. The idea is to track rumors, like this one:
Claim: White House fence-jumper made it inside the main floor
Each claim is tagged as confirmed true, confirmed false, or unverified. An interesting experiment.
It’s part of a research project with the Tow Center for Digital Journalism at Columbia University that focuses on how unverified information and rumor are reported in the media. It aims to develop and best practices for debunking misinformation.
>Researchers said a “perfect storm” of increased sex trade, rail travel, needles used in health clinics and an exploding population likely contributed to the spread of the virus in the city of Kinshasa. Rail travel carried some one million people annually in the city to neighboring areas.
Manners soon learned that they were practicing for an initiation ceremony, a rite of passage that is all about enduring pain.
Elly Kipgogei, 19, remembers going through the ceremony at age 15.
First, he says, he had to crawl mostly naked through a tunnel of African stinging nettles. Then he was beaten on the bony part of the ankle, then his knuckles were squeezed together, and then the formic acid from the stinging nettle was wiped onto his genitals.
But all that was just warm-up; early one morning he was circumcised, with a sharp stick.
During this whole process — the crawling, the beatings and the cutting — Kipgogei was obliged to be absolutely stoical, unflinching.
Though Apple has plans to introduce a wearable device in September, there is no word on when the device might ship. Given a lack of part leaks and rumors pointing towards a late 2014 or early 2015 launch, it is likely the device will be shown several months before it will be available to consumers.
Apple’s upcoming wearable device has been frequently referred to as the iWatch by both MacRumors and other rumor sites, but it remains unclear what Apple will call the device at launch. It is expected to be a wrist worn device, however, and rumors have suggested that it will come in multiple sizes with several different designs available at multiple price points.
It is also expected to incorporate an array of different health and fitness sensors to measure various health-related metrics like steps taken, sleep quality, heart rate, and more.
Recent mockups, alleged schematics, and part leaks have suggested the iPhone 6 will be considerably thinner than the current iPhone 5s, possibly between 6mm and 7mm, and closer in thickness to the iPod touch. The existing iPhone 5s has a thickness of 7.6mm, while the iPod touch measures in at 6.1mm.
