Why is Neymar so badly treated by referees in Spain?

The Brazilian already missed the Champions League clash with Borussia Monchengladbach and a La Liga match against Osasuna through suspension too

Neymar Jr cannot play in the second leg of Barcelona’s Copa del Rey semi-final clash with Atletico Madrid after receiving his third of the season in the tournament.

It is not a new situation. The Brazilian already missed the Champions League clash with Borussia Monchengladbach and a La Liga match against Osasuna through suspension too.

In total the Barcelona star has received 11 yellow cards in 26 games this season.

The problem is that the Brazilian has been punished many times for protesting against tackles he has received which were not penalised, or for squaring up to the players who assaulted him, many times in the right.

The idea that the Brazilian wants to provoke his rivals is one that has permeated the thoughts of officials, who think that sometimes he is trying trick them by simulating fouls.

He was booked against Real Sociedad for diving but it was actually caused by a tackle. Barcelona appealed but it was not accepted and now he is suspended after picking up a booking in the next cup game.

Neymar does not tend to foul opponents, having committed just 16 in 20 league games so far. But against him, there have been 69, an average of 4.31 per game.

1 Neymar · Barcelona · 69 (4,31)
2 Petros · Betis · 57 (3,17)
3 Parejo · Valencia · 55 (2,89)
4 Samu Castillejo · Villarreal · 52 (2,89)
5 Franco Vázquez · Sevilla · 48 · (2,67)
6 Bruno Gama · Deportivo · 47 (3,36)
7 Pablo Hernández · Celta · 46 (2,88)
8 Vitolo · Sevilla · 46 (2,56)
9 Vela · R. Sociedad · 44 (2,32)
10 Raúl García · Athletic Club · 44 (2,32)

COMPARISON

Neymar is already the 52nd most booked player in La Liga history. But comparing his foul count to the players who commit the most fouls showed that they do not get booked anywhere near as much.

PUNISHING THE STAR

On the other hand is the recurring debate about Neymar’s style of play. The stats show just how much he loves to dribble, the only player who has done so more than team-mate Leo Messi.

1 Neymar · Barcelona · 165 (10,31)
2 Messi · Barcelona · 123 (7,24)
3 Gabriel Pires · Leganés · 110 (5,79)
4 Juanpi · Málaga · 107 (5,63)
5 Vitolo · Sevilla · 101 (5,61)
6 Andreas Pereira · Granada · 101 (5,61)
7 Nani · Valencia · 98 (6,53)
8 Pedro León · Eibar · 97 (4,85)
9 Carcela-González · Granada · 96 (8,00)
10 Cancelo · Valencia · 95 (5,28)

The never ending pursuit of perfection: Dieting, Body Image & Health

Unit 6: Since I am starting to add quotes into my collages, I decided to research more into facts about body image and I came across this video. The video has many shocking statistics such as: “ Seven in ten 12 year old girls who think they are fat are actually underweight” and “Eight out of ten 10 year old girls have dieted to lose weight” both of which are appalling. Some of these statistics will surely be in my upcoming collages.

They say that Entropy is one of the most confusing topics of introductory science. I guess that’s why I had to make a second video.

In case you didn’t see it, here’s the first one: http://youtu.be/ykUmibZHEZk

anonymous asked:

You recently said in an answer "The sword is not the best weapon, it is a secondary weapon or sidearm." What would you consider the best weapon?

There really isn’t one. The debate on the “best weapon” takes place all over the internet much in the same way people argue over the “best martial art” or the “best character in Star Wars”. Usually when someone tells you, “the best weapon is X”, they’re either working off of personal preference or referring to a video game where statistics mean that X really is the best weapon. Though, there will probably always be someone who makes a case for another one.

This is probably a good time to remind everyone that people who love martial combat and weaponry are just as nerdy/geeky/fannish about it as everyone else with their respective loves.

The best and clearest analogy I have for how weapons are used in the real world is that they’re like tools in a toolbox. You’ve got your different families of tools, your wrenches, your hammers, your screwdrivers, and they’re all designed to handle different problems you come across when building. You don’t take a hammer to a screw because it’s counterproductive, and screws come in varying sizes and types so you need different screwdrivers to deal with them.

Weapons are the same way. There are generalist weapons (weapons that are designed and have multiple uses in a variety of situations) and there are specialist weapons (weapons designed to be most effective in specific circumstances).

For example, you can take your sniper or hunting rifle into a duel happening at fifteen to twenty feet but it gives up most of its advantages. This is why we also carry a handgun, so if the enemy gets into a range where the rifle is no longer a workable choice then you have a weapon to fall back to.

We get a lot of questions like, “should I give my character a knife or a gun?”

The answer is always: you should give them both.

The handgun is a ranged weapon, it’s meant to be used at range. The knife or dagger is a close quarters supplement for hand to hand. It’s meant to be more effective than your fists when it comes to fighting.

Now, this might lead you to saying, “so the gun is the better weapon?”

The answer is actually no. Much as you might like, you won’t be fighting at range 100% of the time. Fights don’t always start with an enemy twenty feet away. Sometimes, they begin with an enemy right next to you. The time it takes to draw, aim, and shoot can be all the time it takes for the guy or girl with the knife to have driven the blade into your gut several times. (This isn’t theoretical, this is real world, people die this way in muggings.)

The “best weapon” is the one that’s most suited to the job in front of it and that’s situational. Warriors throughout history carried multiple weapons because they didn’t know. You go to battle and the situation changes, you don’t want to be short changed because it could cost you your life.

Archers also carry swords.

Soldiers carried polearms and swords.

Comprehensive martial training involves training in the use of more than one weapon, you will learn how to use multiple weapons. The reason for this is because not every weapon will work in every situation and it’s good to have a range of options on which to rely.

The sword is called a “sidearm” because it is a secondary weapon, support weapon to your primary weapon. That does not mean the primary weapon is the better weapon. It’s the one that’s usually most situationally useful first i.e. a polearm because it has the furthest reach and combat is most likely (but not always) to start at range.

Even then, there are usually several other weapons designed by different people for a similar or parallel purpose. Just look at the family of polearms. Some of those weapons might look silly to you, but they showcase technical ingenuity. Someone designed a new kind of armor or weapon to bring to the table and they designed a counter.

Like war, weaponry is fluid. You create X to counter B, then in a few months they’ll create Z to counter X. We have countless examples throughout history and it is happening right now in whatever country you live in.

War is just as much science as everything else. The difference being a failure can be anything from the cost of sovereignty to people’s lives. If there are two sides to a conflict, you can bet both sides are working hard on ways to stay ahead of the other. This can be anything from strategy to weapons types, to enhancing or bettering the weapon into something more useful to the current climate.

Every weapon has strengths and limitations, every weapon has circumstances where it shines. Instead of trying to find a key that fits all the locks, just use different keys.

Cheesy as it sounds, at the end of the day, the best weapon is the human brain.

The person who wields the weapon is the one who trumps all.

Ways to tell whether your source is biased:

From my experience, those types of websites will tell half-truths or outright lie on occasion just so they can twist whatever to their narrative.

Obviously most news sources you find on the internet will have a twinge of bias, so it’s quite hard to find a completely unbiased source unless you’re lucky or have enough spare time to do some extra digging through the internet.

Anyways, here are five different methods (I’ve learned on my time here) on ruling out bias:

-The author of the source deviates from the facts by adding their unneeded prejudices and opinions. Basically the article or source sounds like a thought piece/propaganda rather than a reliable source.

-Loaded language within the article or page. Do they constantly use buzzwords?

-The website, newspaper; etc has a pattern of publishing information that only supports their views. (This is the one I’d worry about the least, but I think it’s still something to take into account.)

-Look at the name of the website or even the name of the webpage. Does it sound like it would lean towards a certain political agenda? Be skeptical of those ones cause those will definitely show strong bias a lot. (CIP: Red State, Right Wing News, Feministing, Everydayfeminism, Democratic Underground, Tea Party Tribune)

-You don’t have to completely rule out websites like those above though. Try to look for more objective sources within the articles you find: tables, graphs, any kind of statistic, AND VIDEOS. Chances are those might link to another website that publishes impartial/raw data.

-If you still can’t tell whether something shows bias (or you can’t find anything that has little to no bias), look at different sources (particularly those with opposing political views), average all of those out, and come to your own conclusion based off of those sources.

How do you recover from a broken heart?

Time! Separation…in the sense of, segments of your life. Accept things how they are and break off everything into different parts. Reinvent yourself without losing your core and interests…just think of it as being reborn with new opportunities. It is the reason I find joy in RPG video games or sports statistics…because they are focused on progression and building something over time…think of yourself as ever growing and every event in your life (good+bad) is important. Also, I think as you get mature you start to lose/drift away from the more negative aspects of ‘romance’ such as dwelling or jealousy ect…you almost become numb in a good way and feel ridiculous about things you used be sad over…even the worst heartbreak…learning is so important and time is too…don’t do anything drastic…every feeling changes…just find things to hold you over in the present and find excitement in your future self…best wishes 

me: major motion films that are adaptations of popular video games have statistically been proven to be absolute box office failures and negatively reviewed due to their attempts at making it marketable to everyone outside of the fan base, and thereby maul the original meaning behind the franchise’s story that made it memorable in the first place, creating a monstrous abomination. perhaps hollywood needs to consider taking themselves out from the equation completely

also me: *slams fists repeatedly on desk* WHEN ARE WE GETTING A BIOSHOCK MOVIE!!! WHEN!!! WHEN!!! WHEN!!! WHEN!!!!

Whenever I (as a female gamer) mention that women buy games as much as men do, men tend to dismiss it by saying that they probably buy mobile games or "girly" games. Is there a way that you debunk this to people?

I can certainly try. Let’s take another look at the statistics presented by Super Data Research for 2013 talking about digital sales on video game consoles. There are a few points made here:

This data is for digital sales on game consoles. Not tablets, not phones, not facebook, not PCs. This means digital game downloads, microtransactions, DLC, subscriptions, etc. for game consoles - devices dedicated only to video games.

According to the breakdown of 2013 video game sales by Statista, video game sales by genre (not including social platforms, tablet or mobile devices - remember, game consoles only) in 2013 show casual games as only 2.3% of the market share and strategy games only a bit above at 3.4%. 

Going back to the Superdata Research, 37% of the people who bought digital game content in 2013 were women. There were approximately 214 million customers total. This means roughly 80 million women bought digital game content for consoles in 2013. Let’s put that into perspective (populations of France and Canada taken from Wikipedia).

If we assume an even distribution of money spent, these women spent approximately $925 million in 2013. If you compare this to the total value of a company (market cap), you get some interesting comparisons too:

Now… this doesn’t really prove that women buy as many games as men do. I’m actually pretty sure that men buy more console game content than women do. But it does show that there’s an awful lot of women out there who buy games, and ignoring a market that’s 80 million strong and growing seems pretty foolish to me. In short:
