Report: Everton 2 Huddersfield 0

first_imgEverton 2 Huddersfield Town 0: Sigurdsson & Calvert-Lewin get Allardyce off to winning start Ryan Benson 00:53 12/3/17 sigurdsson-cropped Getty Images Everton secured back-to-back Premier League wins as they beat Huddersfield Town 2-0 in Sam Allardyce’s first match in charge. Sam Allardyce’s Everton reign started in victorious fashion, as Gylfi Sigurdsson and Dominic Calvert-Lewin earned a 2-0 win over Huddersfield Town at Goodison Park on Saturday.The former England manager was officially appointed as Ronald Koeman’s permanent successor on Thursday and, although Everton failed to produce a performance to match Wednesday’s 4-0 hammering of West Ham United, they at least managed to secure back-to-back Premier League wins for the first time this season.The first 45 minutes of Allardyce’s tenure were rather forgettable, with both sides lacking imagination in attack, contributing to a tepid half of football.

A Liverpool legend in the making: Behind Virgil van Dijk’s remarkable rise to world’s best player But things were quick to liven up after the break, with Sigurdsson putting Everton ahead with an excellent goal in the 47th minute.Both sides appeared more willing to push men forward in the second period, resulting in a significant increase in entertainment, but Everton continued to look the better in attack.And they ultimately wrapped up all three points 17 minutes from the end through the lively Calvert-Lewin, giving Allardyce a solid start to life on Merseyside. | Ice cold finish. #EFCmatchday— Everton (@Everton) December 2, 2017Neither side was able to exert much control over proceedings early on, with the first 20 minutes scrappy and severely devoid of quality.Everton managed to up the tempo eventually, however, and a quick passing move brought about their first chance in the 26th minute, as Cuco Martina saw a lovely curling 25-yard effort pushed away by Jonas Lossl in the Huddersfield goal.But that opportunity failed to inspire a prolonged period of Everton pressure.If anything, it encouraged an improvement from Huddersfield, who suddenly started to enjoy some command.And they almost took the lead five minutes before the break, but Laurent Depoitre could not prod the ball past Jordan Pickford in a goalmouth scramble.Everton instantly looked better after the break and swiftly took the lead in style.Aaron Lennon cut in from the right and passed to Calvert-Lewin on the edge of the area, with the young forward producing a glorious flick that split the Huddersfield defence to find Sigurdsson, who applied the finish.4 – Gylfi Sigurdsson has been directly involved in four goals in his last four PL games for Everton (two goals, two assists), after none in his first 10 for the club. Rejuvenated.— OptaJoe (@OptaJoe) December 2, 2017Huddersfield responded well and stepped things up a notch.Tom Ince went close a few moments later, running at Jonjoe Kenny before sending a left-footed drive into the side-netting.But Huddersfield had to rely on Lossl just after the hour, as Calvert-Lewin saw a goal-bound 20-yard effort crucially pushed away.He was not to be denied in the 73rd minute, though his goal had more than a hint of luck to it.Wayne Rooney played him into the penalty area and Calvert-Lewin saw his left-footed effort deflect off Mathias Jorgensen and over the helpless Lossl.That goal proved to be a real sucker-punch for the visitors, and Everton had little difficulty seeing things out thereafter, moving on to 18 points as a result of victory. read morelast_img read more

AI and Robots Are Coming for Your Job Heres What You Need

first_img 5 min read Opinions expressed by Entrepreneur contributors are their own. Register Now » Free Webinar | Sept. 9: The Entrepreneur’s Playbook for Going Global April 12, 2016 Growing a business sometimes requires thinking outside the box. According to the World Economic Forum, advances in technology such as robotics and artificial intelligence will lead to a net loss of 5 million jobs by the year 2020…and that number might actually be on the low-end.Thanks to the exponential nature of technological advances, and a confluence of various keystone technologies improving simultaneously, incredible advances are being made in the fields of AI and robotics that are rapidly chipping away at jobs in various industries.What jobs are at risk? For now, anything that is repetitive (such as factory work and assembly line jobs), low-skill (taxi drivers, janitorial jobs, cashiers, line cooks, etc.), or high-skill but narrow scope (stock brokers, data analysts, certain types of medical professionals, etc.).As an employee, it seems scary, but think of it from a consumer’s perspective: perfectly assembled products that cost less, food that is cooked in a clean environment with vastly less risk of food-borne illness, cars that don’t kill over 1,000,000 people per year globally, and medical technology that can identify your illness and recommend a treatment plan with greater accuracy than any human doctor ever could.Related: Why We Shouldn’t Fear Artificial IntelligenceWhile I believe it’s true that new jobs will come from these advances, I absolutely agree with the WEF that they will result in a net job loss…at least in the short-term, and possibly long-term as well. There’s simply too much financial incentive for companies to cut costs and take advantage of these efficiencies, and the benefits to consumers are incredible.But as an employee living in a country with no universal basic income, you need a job to survive. So, what can you do about it?You have precisely one option, broken down into a handful of steps. You need to prepare yourself with a set of skills that will get you jobs that will be very difficult for robots or AI to do. Here’s what you’re going to need:1. An education that is broad and deepRobots and narrow AI are good at a limited set of tasks, such as moving things from point A to B, or playing a game. They are (for now) terrible at doing complicated sequential tasks that involve critical thinking or personalization (say, designing a building, writing a symphony, or putting together a multi-faceted marketing campaign).The more skills you have, the more flexible you will be in terms of jobs you can tackle, making you difficult to replace. So, learn as much as you can, about as many things as possible.2. Well-honed EQYour EQ, or emotional quotient, is a mark of how well you navigate human interaction. Robots and AI are, well, robots and AI. They aren’t human, and likely won’t be human-esque for quite a long time. That means that if you’re really good with people, whether managing a team or negotiating a contract, you’ve got a solid advantage for the foreseeable future.3. Technological savvyPerhaps we should call this TQ, technology quotient. As jobs are replaced by machines, the people filling the jobs that aren’t replaced are going to need to know how to work with said machines.I strongly believe that in the future, an inability to write and/or understand code will be the equivalent of illiteracy. Here’s a great list of sites that can help you learn to code for free. Beyond coding, you will need to be able to pick up a new technology, software or hardware, and become comfortable with it quickly.Related: Elon Musk and Other Tech Leaders Pour $1 Billion Into Artificial Intelligence Startup4. Adaptability The pace of change is accelerating, and if you can’t adapt, you won’t make it through the transition. The human brain loves routines, because a routine is a known entity, a mark of safety. In the future, complacency will be the opposite of safety.Your job will change, possibly often, and you will need to be able to handle those changes. How do you prepare for that? Get comfortable with learning new things. Pick up new hobbies, challenge yourself to learn new skills. Do anything you can to keep your mind flexible, and never let yourself settle into a rut.5. HustleWhile some people succeed in life because of luck, most of the truly successful people succeed because they work their asses off. Learn this lesson early: you aren’t entitled to anything. If something or someone takes “your” job, well, tough. It’s only yours until it isn’t yours, and that really isn’t in your control.Complaining won’t fix it. In fact, complaining could mess up your chances even further. Don’t waste time complaining! Hustle, hunt for a new job, retrain if you have to, start a company, do whatever it takes.Related: This Artificial Intelligence Startup is Empowering Women All OverYou can’t directly prevent a company from replacing you with a robot or narrow AI…but you can do everything in your power to make yourself much, much harder to replace.If you’re still in school, you need to be thinking about this right now. Before you pick a career path, at the very least read up on artificial intelligence and ask yourself, “Can a machine do this job better than me?”last_img read more
