Unfortunately, I am part of the diverse group of people that has a difficult time sleeping. I usually head to bed around 2 hours earlier than my projected sleep time because it simply takes me approximately 2 hours to successfully fall asleep. It’s always been an issue for me ever since I was a toddler in daycare. I would stare at the ceiling during nap time, unable to fall asleep, while the rest of my peers re-charged their bodies for the second half of the day.

Naturally, the problem has only exemplified during my adult years. Which according to today’s infographic, can be quite the problem. Sleep deprivation can have severe effects on an adults health, which includes: weight fluctuation, memory loss, heart disease, weak immune system, and high blood pressure. In order to avoid any sort of illness provoked by sleep deprivation, adults need approximately 7.5-9 hours of sleep. I know, those are some pretty ambitious sleep hours. I bet not even half of us are able to sleep that much on a weekend. However, do not be discouraged, today’s infographic details some helpful tips for us to be able to successfully fall asleep, and stay asleep for the rest of the night. Read on for a restful slumber!

The Great Danger for the Great White [Infographic]

South African city Gansbaai has been known to be one the the worlds locations with the highest clustering of white shark populations. This region alone used to have about 2,000 great white sharks but it has been recently found that that number could actually be far below what it should be. The Dyer Island Conservation Trust finds that the great white population is actually lower than that meaning that they should now be classified as a threatened specie.

They way that they came about these numbers was by cataloging the dorsal fin of each white shark. Interestingly, each shark has a unique dorsal fin. Examples of the uniqueness can be described as wolfgang (pointed top with ridges), notch, and slash fin (which looks like chunks are missing from the fin). Through the collaboration of the Dyer Island Conservation Trust and the Marine Shark Cage Diving company, marine biologists were able to shoot aver 20,000 pictures of great white fins. They then compiled all of the pictures and were able to identify 532 sharks.

With an algorithm they found that there are only a maximum 1,000 inhabiting the waters pif Gansbaai. With numbers like these, the initiatives to help preserve this amazing species are closely monitored and advocated for. [via]

Controlling Your Wedding Costs [infographic]

Here comes the bride, all dressed in a serious amount of debt. Any way you slice it, getting married costs quite a pretty penny or pound, if your infographic comes from the UK. Lucky for all you love-locked little Daily Infographic followers, evolutionmoney.co.uk has provided you with some useful tips for keeping the cost of love down to just beyond souls.

First, consider where in the world you want to have this celebration. The closer to home, the cheaper the cost. Not to mention, having only one venue will cut down tremendously.

Second, consider the guests. This is the biggest day of your life. Who do you want to be there? It should just be the people that matter to you the most. This means family and close friends. And me. I’m always invited to the wedding. I mean, who else is going to foolishly hit on your sister?

Third, consider the eats. Three course meals? What are we, Queen Elizabeth and the upper-crust brigade? Throw it out the window, roll in the buffet cart. Besides, you don’t want to serve something to someone who doesn’t like whatever it is you’re forcing them to have on their plate. It’s wasteful. Let them decide for themselves what they get to miss out on.

There are plenty more ways to save on your big day, and I urge you to check them all out. As for me, I have to go meet with my Singles Anonymous counselor to discuss some personal issues, completely unrelated. [via]

P.S. Congratulations to my life-long friend, Jacob, and your beautiful fiance, Ann, on your engagement! Much love!

The Benefits of Tutoring [infographic]

June 19, 2014 |  by  |  Education  |  No Comments

The purpose of tutoring is to help students become independent learners, providing them with the skills needed to succeed in school. However, tutoring is not just for doing better on school work. There are endless benefits to working with a tutor, such as improved work and study habits, increased confidence and attitude, or improved social and behavioral skills. Not to mention tutored students generally perform better on tests, and attend school more regularly.

When I was younger, I was part of a tutoring group comprised of several students from my class and our teacher. At the time, I had some trouble reading and pronouncing words with an ‘R’ sound. Thanks to those tutoring sessions, I eventually gained the confidence to read out loud during class. But group sessions might not work for everyone, and that’s where private or online tutoring comes in, each with their own advantages.

Although tutoring is usually better suited for those who are struggling in school, it does not mean you are a bad student. There is nothing wrong with needing to work with a tutor. Some students just need more help jumping those educational hurdles. And even if tutoring isn’t right for everyone, almost anyone can benefit from this effective way of learning.

Some Like it ICED: America’s Iced Tea Obsession [infographic]

Honest Tea has scoured the Twitterverse in search of the nation’s most prominent iced tea fanatics. No surprise Texas, Florida, and Georgia are fans, but Illinois, New York, and New Jersey top the list as well. Illinois sticks out the most for me – I suppose the Windy City really has some staunch tea-supporters.

Born in Louisiana and relocating to Texas at the ripe age of one, I grew up in the part of our glorious country called the South. Down here we have sweltering summer days that create a need only three sunny essentials can fill: swimming holes, air conditioning, and (sweet) iced tea.

Yes, we like our tea sweet in the South, so what, maybe we don’t care about all the extra calories we’re packing in – maybe we also pack it out. We tea drinkers enjoy our sports as well. I run, I walk, I drink tea at football games, and at the pool – I am the poster-child of the tea-drinking world (I’m even drinking tea as I write this post). Tea can be the perfect drink for any occasion, whether its a backyard BBQ with the family, or having an iced tea vodka at the club way too late at night. Next time your feeling thirsty, pass up that bubbly coke, or purple sports drink and see how well some good, old-fashioned iced tea can make you feel. [Honest Tea]
