In the following I would like to present a simple model, how to create own odds for sports events.
I will exemplary limit myself on one possible parameter (in this case the achieved respectively conceded goals of both teams). I will use it to calculate for example the "correct score“ and "1X2“ odds of a soccer game in the German "1. Bundesliga“.
Lets take the game "Bayern Munich" against the "Hamburg SV“ ("HSV") at the coming Saturday.
If we take a look at the current standings of the
we can see that after 21 games Bayern Munich has scored 46 goals so far and conceded 13. TheHSV“ has scored 21 goals and conceded 37.
I watched the film "The Accountant" this past weekend and it offered a very interesting hypothesis, well not really hypothesis, but more of a generalized question.
The question was something along the lines of, "What if we aren't using the right tests to measure autistic intelligence?"
Since I can remember, society has been classifying those with autism in one giant group and that group has all been considered somewhat "less than" in terms of intelligence by many people. As we are learning though, that one giant group has a very large spectrum and the "high functioning autistic" might not be "less than" at all. In fact, they could quite possibly be considered, "more than" in many areas...
That is a very interesting theory the film touched on and one that I find fascinating.
What do we mean by "more than"?
Well it has been well documented that many individuals that are included o
The theory of evolution was discovered by a scientist named Charles Darwin. He didn’t develop this theory completely by himself. He had the help from early thinkers who all had the same idea’s but not completely correct.
Charles Darwin was born on the 12th of February, 1809 in England, The Mount Shrewsbury. He has a huge influence on all science today. His theory of evolution opened new doors for other scientist to discover many more theories of the world. In 1831, he went on a five-year investigation trip around the world on the HMS Beagle. During the years of traveling around the world, he studied many different and unique organisms which led him to the theory of evolution as well as Natural Selection. It was extremely challenging for Darwin because he was born and raised in a time where people believed that the Earth was only 6000 years old and all
A few years ago I seemed to have some mysterious illness, well at least it felt like an illness. There were no major life threatening symptoms but I just had an overall general feeling of being unwell.
As you can see it was a decent sized list of non specific symptoms and they all just kind of came on gradually. Nothing seemed to happen overnight, it just seemed like over time I would notice a few more thi
The ISS is one of the only places we can experiment with microgravity. This means the astronauts work schedule is filled with upkeeping these experiments. They work on two main different scientific research facilities: the microgravity science glovebox and the human research facility. The microgravity glovebox allows astronauts to handle dangerous fluids. Some of the goals for this research are to help make better braking systems, seat suspensions and landing gear. The Human research facility is to research the effects of space on humans. The astronauts go in for regular physicals and are watched closely for the psychologic effects of isolation and confineme
Laughter is the best medicine - we've heard this saying a thousand times, but it's actually very true!
Smiling and Laughing are our body's reactions to positive emotions - it leaves us feeling happy and content.
But laughter can actually have a lot of other, indirect effects on our health that you might not be aware of!
Laughing reduces the levels of stress hormones like cortisol, and therefore help us ease tension and stress.
Also, the effects on our body help reduce the physical symptoms of stress, like tense muscles as well.
Laughing can actually be a full-body workout - I guess we've all experienced la
Nach einigen Kalkulationen von Steem Rewards und Diskussionen mit Leuten (Danke @felixxx und @twinner fürs Erklären!), die es können heute morgen, hier mal was zu Mathematik. Ich war immer gut im Kopfrechnen, geht auch heute noch besser und schneller als bei den Meisten. Im Mathe Leistungskurs bin ich allerdings krachend gescheitert - aber warum? Liegt es an meiner Blödheit oder war es das Umfeld in der Schule damals? Im Studium (BWL) machten mir ähnliche (mathematische Beweise und Ableitungen) dann weniger Probleme. Aber generell gilt wohl: Erfolg hat, wer Mathematik mag.
Hier mal zwei Thesen / Wahrheiten zum Fach und ne Rechenaufgabe:
1. Das Niveau von Mathe-Studenten sinkt permanent
„Die Qualität des Abiturs nimmt ab. Der Verfall der Kenntnisse und Fähigkeiten in den mathematischen Fächern bereitet größte Sorg
Similar to what happened to the measurement of distances, for many centuries there were no universal unit of mass.
In most European countries, mass was given in units called
pounds or equivalent. But the value of one pound depended on the country and on the usage.
The ancestor of the pound is the the Roman libra that was equivalent to approximately 328.9 grams
Lasers are really great for doing laser show and other awesome lightening stuff. Scientists have now created a white laster that could light every place at your home including living room, kitchen, bedroom and others. Previously, Scientists made their attempt in producing white laser by using multiple hardwares and combining them to produce while laser light but this new white laser capable of producing white light as its output uses a single unit as its source, making it more feasible.
A team of researchers at Arizona University studied about this subject and showed how a semiconductor laser that can emit light with full light spectrum and capable of producing the white light from the full light spectrum. Scientists used a semiconductor consisting of three parallel segments so that each one of the segment emits an elementary colour. The output of these can be tuned a
Hi Steemians,,,, Two days ago, heard a loud voice next to my house in Aceh, I tried to find the origin of the voice, as I approached, suddenly lost voice.
I kept looking, mmmmm it turns out tree frog,,, he sticks to the leaves of pandanus, I tried to take some pictures of this frog, but I failed,,, ☹. He jumped away toward a higher base.
pictures taken with the camera smartphones, Xiaomi redmi note 4. I hope you like it.

Golden tree frogs range in size from 1.5 to 3.5 inches (3.8 to 8.9 cm) as adults. Males are smaller than females and have a loud call.

New discoveries from NASA Dawn mission, orbiting dwarf planet Ceres in the Main Asteroid Belt. Spacecraft's sensors found evidence for organic material on the surface. While Ceres composition has many common with meteorite group called carbonaceous chondrites, this is first time when organic material is found on the Main Belt bodies. This is 52 kilometers-wide Ernutet crater:
Image: NASA/JPL-Caltech/UCLA/MPS/DLR/IDA Areas with high organic content marked with orange and red
Dawn's spectrometer cannot define exact composition of organics, but evaluations show that total organics content is from 4% to 9%.
Last year only three planets had been identified around the star named TRAPPIST-1 but NASA just announced that with the Spitzer, an Infrared Space Telescope an additional 5 were just discovered in this solar system. This sets the record for most Earth-size planets outside of our solar system, with all having the possibility of containing liquid water with **3 having a higher chance of this being in the
Goldilocks zone of conditions.
All of these seven planets could have liquid water – key to life as we know it – under the right atmospheric conditions, but the chances are highest with the three in the habitable zone.
*Mosquito WAR Drones *
I saw an interesting article on drones used in the fight against mosquitoes. I thought it would make for an interesting article and decided to Google the subject, and then found 3 different ways in which drones are used against the fight against these annoying buzzers!!
The photo above shows a drone used in Brazil to fight the Zika infested mosquitoes. These drones are used to release huge numbers of sterilized male mosquitoes into the wild. (You read correctly sterilized mosquitoes!!). These sterilized males then mate with females, who will lay eggs, but no offspring is produced from these eggs. This then reduces the mosquito population.
In Australia they have a different approach. They first locate pools that are potential breading places of the mosquitoes. They then dispense larvicide into the identifie
A scientist in Israel invented a device called Na-Nose that can detect illness in patients just by their breath. It is similar looking to the breathalyzer the Police department's use for detecting impaired driver's. It's said to have an 86 percent accuracy. It works by distinguish illness because it pick's up
Volatile organic compounds that is emitted in a person's breath.
According to the researcher's 17 conditions all resulted in 13 specific compounds being released, but all have their own patterns. Each disease has it's own unique breath print. Some of the illness it can detect is Parkinson's, multiple Sclerosis, kidney disease, prostate cancer, Crohns and Ovarian cancer among others.
The Na-nose was tested on about 1,400 patients in different countries and have detected accurately 9 out of 10 times. It is also made to detect more then one dis
It seems science is closer to solving one of mankind's most persistent problem ever, the problem of coaxing out the last drop of ketchup from its bottle!
This would mean that you will no longer be contorting your body, and doing a wiggly dance, just to take out the precious last bits from the bottle, because a team of scientists at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) have discovered a material which will make the ketchup slide out effortlessly, relieving you of the mental pain and physical labor you would have to endure otherwise!
The material is a new coating, which will make the inside of bottles, and other container, so slippery that everything inside will slide out without any resistance and, hold your breath, will also help in solving the problem of wasted food, a common thing in many countries these days.
Hello, steemers! Today I'd like to talk about interesting theme, The SECOND moon. Maybe you might think, how can there be two moons? It's just a lie. Yeah, I thought like this. But, 2016H03 is really the second moon, (actually it's quasi-satellite). So let's talk about this one!
2016H03 is Earth's second satellite which surrounds Earth. - it's satellite's dictionary meaning- It looks like this,
and it seems like an ugly potato. Also, it is super small. Contrast to moon -which is the first satellite of Earth-, moon is 40000 times bigger than 2016ho3. It was discovered in 2016 April 27th in Hawai observatory. It's now called "quasi-satellite, because of it's orbit. (But before, it is considered as second moon because, it's orbit is much closer to Moon's orbit, so this is the reason why 2016ho3 is called the second moon.)
It spins like this. By the way, moon's orbit is exactly same with earth's orbit.
Hey, what's up, hello beautiful people!
It's fun the first time you install a nice IDE and sit down to start learning to code. But then it gets worse.
You pass a few trials and tutorials alright, and learn the basics, but like a sharp slope, it gets very difficult, and very tedious, and most certainly very boring, very quickly.
So what do you do? Give up?
Yeah, I think it might be wise to just give up. You've learned the basics, you know what an int is, how to write and use a function, and you might even feel like you can just read code of any programming language. But it's boring.
So let's just give up. But for how long?
How long can you really just stay a rookie at what is literally hacking?
You can't act like the concept of programming isn't the coolest thing ever.
So you need to go back. With the basics in mind, you've gotta return to your studies, and focus on the most epic hobby ever.
Hacking and programming.
The United States Patent Office grants patents to inventions that
meet three main criteria.
The invention must be novel, nonobvious, and useful.
An invention must work and serve some type of purpose.
Patent search is endlessly fascinating.
I could get lost for a day in the links from a single patent.
The links to other patents are at the bottom of each page.
This is pretty cool.
