Scientists believe programming AI for self-preservation could be the key to giving robots feelings

  Scientists believe programming AI for self-preservation could be the key to giving robots feelings A new paper from researchers at the University of Southern California's Brain and Creativity Institute considers a novel path toward creating robots with 'feelings.'The key, according to researchers Kinson Man and Antonio Damasio, is homestasis, a self-preservation principle by which living creatures seek to maintain internal biological equilibrium by avoiding certain environments or kinds of stimuli.

In human anatomy, a hamstring (/ˈhæmstrɪŋ/) is any one of the three posterior thigh muscles in between the hip and the knee (from medial to lateral: semimembranosus

Have tight hamstrings ? Contrary to popular belief, stretching isn’t necessarily your answer. That’s because stretching isn’t a surefire way to improve your hamstring flexibility and restore your range of motion. In fact, if poor alignment is to blame, your hamstrings are already in an overextended position.

Berenguer has been training with the first team squad this week and while he will not be able to start he could be used off the bench having missed the last four A-League games.

Metcalfe, the youngster who has become a mainstay of the City starting 11 under French coach Erick Mombaerts, sustained a hamstring injury while on duty with the Olyroos in China last week.

The hamstrings originate at the backside of your pelvis and travel down the leg where they then insert at the top of your tibia and fibula, located in the lower leg. During the squat, your hamstrings have to work both concentrically and eccentrically. An eccentric contraction is when your muscles produce a

"Connor is injured. He cannot play," said Mombaerts.

The club's two other Olyroos, goalkeeper Tom Glover and winger Ramy Najjarine "will be in the squad, but I don't know their physical level ... Ramy played another game".

Why Test snub could end the career of Aussie star

  Why Test snub could end the career of Aussie star Usman Khawaja has been overlooked for the series against Pakistan, with one former skipper believing he faces an uphill battle to regain his spot.Khawaja was dumped from the side after three Tests of the recent Ashes series in England, where his six innings yielded just 122 runs at an average of 20.33, admittedly not the worse performance by an Australian top-order batsman during the series.

Your hamstrings are a collection of four muscle bellies (with only three names) on the posterior (back) thigh.

"Florin is just coming back with the team this week but is not able to start. I hope Richard [Austrian defender Richard Windbichler, who has also missed most of the season] can start with the squad next week," Mombaerts continued.

City twice threw away two goal leads in a horror loss in Brisbane last week, despite a hat-trick in under an hour by Jamie Maclaren. The Socceroos frontman was returning from a hamstring injury and played barely an hour in that game.

Mombaerts would like to use him for the whole match, but has not made any promises.

In-form Maclaren is the league's sharpest shooter. He has already netted seven times in three matches this season.

"He is in-form, he had good delivery, especially in the first half. The third goal in the start of the second half was a wonderful action," Mombaerts said.

"When the delivery is good we know Jamie is a good finishing player."

City knocked Western Sydney out of the FFA Cup earlier this year but Mombaerts is expecting a very different version of Markus Babbel's side in their own new home ground.

"Wanderers have changed their system. They are a good team, they try to play totally different to last game. It's a good challenge to play this team, and I also hope we enjoy this challenging environment," he said.
