Everton Slip up on tittle race (Everton 2-3 Crystal Palace)

Anonymous Coward writes | about half an hour ago


An anonymous reader writes "Everton handed the initiative back to Arsenal in the race for fourth as their seven-match winning streak ended with a damaging defeat to Crystal Palace.

Jason Puncheon's half-volley and Scott Dann's header put Palace in control before Steven Naismith's tap-in.

Cameron Jerome added a third for the Eagles before Kevin Mirallas reduced the deficit from close range.

Defeat for the Toffees mean they remain fifth, a point behind the Gunners, with four matches remaining.

Palace, who go 11th, have reached the 40-point mark often seen as a benchmark for top-flight safety with a fourth successive win.

Manager Tony Pulis appears to have accomplished the mission of Premier League survival he took on when he accepted the job in November with the club bottom of the table.

But Everton boss Roberto Martinez now badly needs a response from his side to reinvigorate their Champions League challenge when his predecessor David Moyes returns to Goodison Park with Manchester United on Sunday.

It was an unusually lacklustre display from Martinez's side as they paid the price for defensive lapses against a speedy and strong Palace side who were good value for their victory.

Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers was at Goodison Park as Everton paid tribute to the 96 who died in the Hillsborough disaster.

Supporters held a line of Everton and Liverpool scarves tied together along the pitch.

Ross Barkley — restored to the starting line-up — provided another glimpse of his exciting talent when he beat two men with a jinking run on the edge of the box before going down inside the penalty area too easily, then Aiden McGeady saw a long-range curler flash over after he had neatly stepped inside Mile Jedinak.

However, it was the visitors who took the lead. Keeper Tim Howard could only palm Yannick Bolasie's cross back into the danger zone and Marouane Chamakh's intelligent lay-off to Puncheon, right of centre inside the area, was clinically dispatched with a left-footed half-volley inside the post.

Pulis's team almost doubled their advantage via Bolasie, whose pace and power posed persistent problems for the home side.

The winger brought down a Julian Speroni goal kick before outmuscling Seamus Coleman and driving a low 20-yard effort against the foot of the left post which fell back into the path of the onrushing Jerome, who missed.

McGeady saw another curler fly narrowly wide, while Speroni saved superbly at his near post to thwart Romelu Lukaku from close range.

Everton's job got even harder when Dann took advantage of some slack marking to nod home his first Eagles goal four minutes after the restart.

However, the deficit was halved with 12 minutes left when a deep cross from Mirallas was headed back across goal by Leighton Baines and substitute Naismith bundled home.

Osman, another substitute, came close to pulling Everton level when a flicked effort with the outside of his boot was kept out by Speroni.

But Puncheon teed up Jerome for Palace's third, the former Stoke man lashing a low shot inside the post.

Mirallas ensured a tense finish when he lifted the ball over Speroni for Everton's second, but the visitors took all three points."

Re: Quick and Easy Mental Calculation ANYONE can Master
Dear Friend,
It isn't your fault.
The reason you’re struggling with mental math is simple
  you were given the wrong tools for the job.
Those “modern” techniques you were taught in the schoolroom have actually been holding you back.
You see, over 3000 years ago in Ancient India, the Vedics devised a system of mental math based around the way the mind naturally works.
Their system was completely different and far superior to the methods we use today here in the West.
Amazingly, this super-simple system was actually rediscovered in the 20th century, yet — incredibly — most people have never even heard of it.
As a result, you're still struggling with the unnatural western methods and find yourself in one of these two categories:"

The squishy future of robotics

Anonymous Coward writes | 6 hours ago


An anonymous reader writes "The field of soft robotics is fast growing and may be the key to allowing robots and humans to work side-by-side. 'Roboticists are prejudiced toward rigid structures, for which algorithms can be inherited from the well-established factory robot industry. Soft robots solve two huge problems with current robots, however. They don’t have to calculate their movements as precisely as hard robots, which rely on springs and joints, making them better for navigating uncontrolled environments like a house, disaster area, or hospital room. They’re naturally “cage free,” meaning they can work shoulder-to-shoulder with humans. If a soft robot tips over or malfunctions, the danger is on par with being attacked by a pillow. The robot is also less prone to hurt itself.'"
