    first_imgAdvertisement Mikel Arteta pinpoints Arsenal stat that is ‘not good enough’ Mikel Arteta knows his Arsenal side have a lot of improving to do (Picture: Getty Images)Mikel Arteta has accepted that Arsenal’s inability to create chances is a thorn in the side of their progress and an area they must improve as soon as possible.The Gunners find themselves 16th in the Premier League in terms of chances created, even lower than their disappointing position of 10th in the actual Premier League table.The north London side have scored 53 goals in their 37 games thus far, which is perfectly respectable, but Arteta is not happy with the creativity in his side and knows that 16th place stat, one behind Sunday’s opponents Watford, is nowhere near good enough.AdvertisementAdvertisement‘They don’t lie, those stats,’ said Arteta. ‘When you relate that to Arsenal it’s not good enough and there are certain aspects of the games we don’t control as well as we should.ADVERTISEMENT‘At the same time, when you are in a process where you need immediate results … for the short-term objectives, you have to find a way to do it.

By the 1980s, fractional Krugerrands were made available – the 1/2oz, 1/4oz and 1/10oz.The design dates back to 1892 when the country’s first coin series was circulated. It features a bust of the then president of the South African Republic, Paul Kruger, created by die-engraver Schultz. “The reverse design of the prancing springbok, South Africa’s national animal, was modelled by Coert Steynberg,” reads the South African Mint website.” It was originally created for the commemorative 5-shilling coin issued in 1947 to celebrate the visit of the British Royal Family to South Africa.”The name Krugerrand comes from Kruger and South Africa’s monetary unit, the rand – associated with the Witwatersrand, “the ridge of white water”, the area where gold was discovered in 1886.Queen Elizabeth celebrates her 90th birthday on 21 April.

  • Study hints that wearables are terrible at counting calories, just like their users

    first_imgHow Myia Health’s Partnership with Mercy Virtua… Ryan Matthew Pierson Tags:#Apple#Basis Peak#Fitbit#fitness trackers#Internet of Things#IoT#wearables Can IoT Bridge The Gaps In Modern Mental Health… Related Posts center_img 8 Unusual Ideas for a Dentistry Business FDA Extends Collaboration on Living Heart Proje… A new study out of Stanford measured the accuracy of seven wristband activity monitors and found that while six out of seven wearables measured heart rate accurately, none of them were able to accurately measure calories burned.The study involved 60 volunteers from a larger pool, selected specifically to represent a diverse set of subjects. These participants included 31 women and 29 men of various skin color, body type, etc.Participants were asked to wear these various wrist-mounted devices while undergoing tasks such as walking, running, cycling, and sitting.How fitness trackers are good…The fitness trackers examined in the study include:Apple WatchBasis PeakFitbit SurgeMicrosoft BandMio Alpha 2PulseOnSamsung Gear S2The devices in this study did a fairly good job of monitoring the participant’s heart rate. In fact, six of the devices measured heart rates to under a 5% median error rate during walking and cycling while the Samsung Gear S2 scored a slightly less stunning 5.1%.A 5% variance is something medical professionals can work with. “For a lay user, in a non-medical setting, we want to keep that error under 10 percent,” Anna Shcherbina, one of the authors of the paper, said.…and how fitness trackers are badWhile the seven fitness trackers featured in the study did a pretty good job at keeping up with participant’s heart rate, the error rate in calculating caloric expenditure was a different story.Out of the seven devices tested, the most accurate one was off by 27.4%. That honor went to the Fitbit Surge.The least accurate device of the bunch was the PulseOn which with a stunning error rate of 92.6%.This study shows that fitness trackers, as much as we rely on them to give us at least mostly accurate data, may not be giving us a true account of our activity at all. Users rely on these devices to let them know when they have hit their goals on steps, heart rate, and caloric burn.If this research is accurate, at least one of these three measurements should be taken with a grain of salt.last_img read more

    first_imgNewcastle boss Bruce fears he’s already running out of timeby Paul Vegas21 days agoSend to a friendShare the loveNewcastle United boss Steve Bruce fears he’s already running out of time to implement his ideas.The Magpies are second from bottom in the Premier League after one win in seven matches and the head coach accused his team of ‘surrendering’ during last Sunday’s 5-0 defeat at Leicester.”They’ve played a certain way and that certain way has been drilled into them (by Rafa Benitez),” said Bruce.’We have to start with that again. If that’s the way they play, I understand that, that’s what we’ll do.”He added: “If you take a manager’s job, you’re under pressure from day one and these days you don’t get time to implement things. You have to be instant, that’s the way it is.”You can’t think you’re going to get two or three years to change things round, you have to work with what you’ve got and try to find a few results.”You don’t get the time anymore – it’s the same with all managers. The flak always stops with me at the top of the tree.” About the authorPaul VegasShare the loveHave your saylast_img read more
