Hi Dominic

I wanted an answer to the age-old question of how many points are required to avoid relegation from the Premier League (is it 38? 42? etc...). Have you done, or would you know how to do, an MCS to effectively model every possible final EPL table? Some simplifying assumptions would need to be made (e.g. a simple W/D/L outcome of each game, with Ws being 1-0 and Ds being 0-0) but if we knew each potential final outcome, we could then make probability distribution-based assumptions on how many points are needed (e.g. 90% of the time, 38 pts would be enough to finish 17th, etc).

Also, at various points of the season, the current table would be identical to one of the millions of possible tables and so the closer you got to the end of the season, the more you'd be able to 'predict' such things.

I'm always amazed at the lack of stats in football and this would seem like a useful thing to know (and put an end to 'experts' peddling the same old cliches!). I can build financial models but am not up-to-speed on MCS. Is this something you'd know how to do? Just out of curiosity!

Thanks

Hi Mel,

I think your numbers are only US sales - not World Wide as what my report is based on.

In fact, from Sept - Dec 2011 - Android increased from 44.8% to 47.3%.. That's where your 48% comes from.

Thanks for reading

Martin, You've neglected to mentioned Q4 2011 marketshare figures. If you had, you would have had to report how Android's share has plunged while the iPhone has surged. The iPhone's US marketshare grew from 28% to 42% while Android plunged from 60% down to 48% according to NPD, ComScore and Neilsen. Also, iOS at 315 million deices sold has a far larger installed base than Android which has only sold 200 million to date. In addition adding the 15.4 million iPads and 8 million iPod Touches to the 37 million iPhones sold last quarter worldwide, Apple is now selling 700,000 iOS devices per day - the same as the total number of Android activations per day. Then you have the actual income that iOS app developers make is 11x larger than Android devs and app numbers are far larger than Android where 45% are spamware. 170,000 tablet-optimized iPad apps versus only a few hundred Android tablet apps.

It is Apple's iOS dominating not Android.

Indications for fenestrated endovascular aneurysm repair ( Br J Surg 2012; 99: 217–224) - Your View

Sir,

 

In the February 2012 issue, 3 articles discuss the available data and indications for fenestrated endovascular aneurysm repair (FEVAR) 1-3. The systematic review of the available case series concluded that “the current evidence is weak with many unanswered questions”1. The commentary concluded that “data from all future procedures should be submitted to a national registry”3. All 3 articles fail to mention that a FEVAR registry is already established - The Global Collaborators on Advanced Stent-Graft Techniques for Aneurysm Repair (GLOBALSTAR) registry4. With 350 patients already enrolled, this is currently the largest FEVAR registry and can be accessed at http://clinengnhs.liv.ac.uk:8080/Gstar2/index.php . Those wishing to contribute should contact fempop@liverpool.ac.uk for further information.

As well as the volatility and composition of the inflation indices, the long term trend is also important.  After a steady decline since 1992, in 2000 this trend reversed.  Since 2000 the inflation rate has followed a steadily rising trend, with an acceleration in the increase of prices.  The forecast drop in the rate during 2012 will be an unusual.
