Vaccine R&D Leaders [infographic]

Vaccines have been all over the news lately, well I guess those against vaccines. Like today’s infographic states, vaccines are the most effective public health invention of all time. Those who are against them are only helping humanity take a step back from evolution. Anti-vaxxers are mis-informed individuals who are hurting children around the world.

Besides hating on those against vaccines, I’ll talk about the good they’ve done. Vaccines helped reduce measles deaths globally by 78% between 2000 and 2008. In sub-Saharan Africa, deaths dropped by 92% in the same period. This fact in itself is completely indisputable. Vaccines save more lives than any other signal medical option. It’s a ‘wonder-drug’, although not really a drug.

Almost the entire world has eradicated polio. Which was once one of the world’s scariest diseases, especially for children. Go vaccinate your children. Please listen to your doctor’s and not your friend’s. [via]

The Sleeping Habits of the Rich and Famous [infographic]

Who would’ve known Winston Churchill’s sleep habits were actually the more similar to the public than Ben Franklin. It’s true though. Churchill was a huge advocate for naps. Like many old and young alike, napping seems essential to everyday life.

It does seem like a lot of our world leaders don’t get much sleep at night. Five hours looks like the more normal time anyone can get. Obama’s facts are skewed because he is only woken up early when important things take place. Like if we’re sending a drone to bomb a school or if our embassy is being overrun by extremists.

Ok that was harsh. I know America’s leader makes massive decisions that include life, death and acts of unthinkable conclusions. Possibly if the president was granted an entire full night’s sleep our country would experience more educated decisions when it comes to foreign policy. Maybe not, but our leaders need to have the options to nap.

Napping is like taking a lunch break. It is necessary. It will help you be more efficient at work. A small break for every employee will create a culture which abides to our new generation’s work ethic. [via]

Strange Laws Around The World [infographic]

Whether¬†for vacation or business, traveling to foreign places means there’s going to be a change in culture, sometimes drastically. Hand signals can mean different things, clothing must be worn in certain ways, and sarcasm may be obsolete. Along with the change in culture comes a change in the actual laws of the foreign land.

I remember reading a book as a child about the weirdest laws in America. I remember how in Alabama, bear wrestling matches are forbidden. In Texas, one cannot lawfully sell their eyeballs. These weird laws can date back hundreds of years and usually don’t hold much clout in the eyes of law enforcement.

Today’s infographic spared me from the regular obscene laws and provided me with some very interesting, new facts. In Capri, Italy, there is a band on loud footwear. That wouldn’t go over too well here in Texas with all of our cowboy boots. Also, in Manila, Philippines, you may only drive your car six days out of the week. This is to help keep congestion down in the city. Personally, I think this is the smartest law ever enacted. It’s an instant reduction of vehicles on the road that not only leads to less traffic, but less environmental impact. Citations for breaking the law and increased public transportation revenue are also results of the ban. I’m going to have to bring this one to my own city’s attention. [Cheapflights.com.au]

10 Epic Reasons To Use A PDF Editor [infographic]

If you deal with PDFs on a regular basis, you know how annoying it can be when the format isn’t up to your specs. Editing PDFs seems like a dream come true, that’s why you need to get a PDF editor. My favorite aspect of PDF editors is that they are magic. Okay, maybe not magic, but close enough. One of the best features of these editors is their ability to create a digital copy from a hard copy. Yup, scan in your physical piece of paper, and on your screen pops a fully-editable digital copy. See, that really is magic.

PDF editors have also become vital in the contract world. No more having to meet up in person, or mess with a fax machine to sign a contract. PDF editors guarantee a fast and legally binding signature. Signing my lease last year was the easiest thing. Using the PDF editor, I could search for terms in my lease and find the most important sections immediately. The signature was just as easy.

PDF editors might not seem like the most excited thing in the workplace, but having one on your computer will make your life so much easier. [via]

$10,000 To Start Your Small Business [infographic]

February 22, 2015 |  by  |  Business  |  No Comments

Most small businesses in America start with less than $10,000. This usually comes from the founder’s own savings account. Starting a small business is a big risk for some, putting everything on the line to reach for their dreams. A lot of businesses start from a hobby. Woodworkers, bakers, website design and plenty of other craftspeople and creatives never had formal training. One day, a friend of theirs said, “Hey, that’s amazing, you should do this full time!” Although it is true that most businesses fail, it is much better to give it a go.

In college, I learned that even if your business fails, the majority of failed businesses actually come out even in respect to finances, not much money lost or gained. Starting a small business has never been easier thanks to the Internet. Sites like Etsy and TaskRabbit are great places to help facilitate the business side of your idea. Social media is an easy, cheap way to market your product or service. Finally, having a website helps communicate your potential to your customers.

If you’re on the fence about starting a small business, you should just do it. Dive right in and see what you can do. [via]
