The three points are also won from the bench

No footballer likes to be left out of the eleven, but expanding the number of substitutions allowed in games, from three to five, has increased the hopes of playing for those who start 90 minutes on the bench. Before a final and decisive day of LaLiga Santander that promises excitement until the last breath and almost a year after a modification that sought to alleviate the condensation of the calendar caused by the pandemic, the possibilities of entering the second half have multiplied: the Average changes per game has gone from 2.9 to 4.2 players, comparing the first 27 days of the previous year with the present, according to the study that Mediacoach, LaLiga's data and video analysis team, has carried out in collaboration with a group of researchers from the Rey Juan Carlos University...

La Croix: Why did you launch an Ignatian year?Father Arturo Sosa: The Ignatian year, opened on the occasion of the 500e anniversary of the injury of Ignatius of Loyola at the battle of Pamplona, ​​is not, in my eyes, a commemorative year. It is part of a process that began five years ago.→ EXPLANATION. What does the “Ignatian year” that opens on May 20 consist of?In 2016, we expressed the wish to participate in a great ministry of reconciliation based on justice, faith and solidarity with the poor. And I must say that the Covid-19 pandemic has reinforced this need. As Ignatius saw his life changed by his injury, for God broke into him at that time, we can say that our injury is the pandemic. This is an opportunity that God takes to join us, and open a way we never tho...

Major leagues pick 20

The founders, those who started the adventure of professional football in Spain, were ten clubs. Although the ball had already started to roll at the end of the 19th century, it was not until 1928 that the first edition of a championship was held, which included some names that are now recognized throughout the planet, such as FC Barcelona or Real Madrid. , and others that over time fell into more modest categories, such as CE Europa or Arenas de Guecho. This initial number of members was increased in successive enlargements —from ten to twelve in 1934, from twelve to 14 in 1941, from 14 to 16 in 1950, from 16 to 18 in 1971— until reaching 20 teams in 1987. A figure that has been consolidated and that, in addition, is shared with the top categories of Italy, France and England, and tha...

The Covid year closed with an annual drop of more than 7.5% in the number of mortgages signed to pay for a home, breaking with a trend that began in 2013 and ended with six consecutive years of increases. However, taking into account the data updated yesterday by the Spanish Mortgage Association (AHE), the average loan amounts, which grew at the same time as the number of operations in recent years, recorded a new rise, keeping alive a trend towards growth. rise that in relation to prices already adds 11 years in a row. The summary that the AHE throws up, therefore, is that in 2020 fewer mortgages were contracted for housing -a total of 333,721-, but that these were more expensive -134,904 euros on average-. Housing is, in fact, the only one of the segments analyzed by the AEH that mana...

This Is The Point When People Start Trusting Algorithms More Than Other Humans

Algorithms can help us with everything, from choosing what music to listen to next to finding the cheapest flight online. Now, new research reveals one of the tipping points that tend to make us trust a computer's judgment rather than a human's.  The findings offer an interesting insight into how ready we've become to let algorithms make decisions for us – and how they have the potential to streamline our lives and make them easier, even though they take away some autonomy."It seems like there's a bias towards leaning more heavily on algorithms as a task gets harder and that effect is stronger than the bias towards relying on advice from other people," says management information systems PhD student Eric Bogert, from the University of Georgia.In experiments involving 1,500 participants, v...
