Your computer screen may be causing you more headaches than you know. On average, we sit in front of a computer screen more than six hours a day. It’d be rude of me to assume all of the Daily Infographic readers fall into this category, but if you happen to be one of those people, the keys to beat iris fatigue, headaches, and unfortunately, much more, are just a few glances away.
Constant use of computers and other electronic devices can lead to CVS, which stands for computer vision syndrome. It’s symptoms include blurry vision, headaches, dry eyes, and possibly long-term nearsightedness. There are many ways to decrease your chances of CVS though, so don’t fret too much. Adjusting the positioning of your computer, changing your brightness settings, and taking periodic breaks are just a few ways to beat CVS. For those of you who dream of the day bionic eyes make an appearance, you can rest safe knowing researchers are putting in numerous man hours to make it more than a just a possibility.

So every girl has to wear lingerie. Whether it be a target bra and hanes panties or fancy La Perla bra and pantie sets, every girl has to have some under garmets. Some say the outfit starts with the under garmets, and looking your best starts underneath. This helpful infographic gives us a little inside scoop on the facts about lingerie.
The first few statistics are a bit predictable. The majority of people find lingerie very important (including myself), as opposed to not important at all. And 21-30 year olds care the most about lingerie, coming in at just about half.
Where this gets interesting is reading about what your lingerie says about you. Those black bra wearing women are said to be clean, strong and powerful. White wearers are loving, in touch with their emotions and natural beauties. Red wearers are bold, passionate and dramatic and blue wearers are romantic and artsy. Any of you female infographers notice any of these trends? I think I just pick pretty pieces, regardless of color, but I can see each stereotype playing out. Via

Thousands of voters will find it difficult, if not impossible, to vote in the rapidly-approaching 2012 presidential election thanks to new changes in voters’ rights and voting laws across several states in the U.S.
While younger voters and senior citizens certainly aren’t the only two demographics affected by the new laws, there are 34 states that have introduced legislation that will make their voting experience especially difficult. The laws will require a valid photo ID in order to either vote or register to vote; while this might not seem like an unreasonable law, it will make voting more difficult for 18% of voters age 65+ and 1 out of every 5 voters age 18-29 who do not have either a driver’s license or other government-issued ID.
10% of Latino voters, who made up 22% of the final-Sunday vote, have had their ability to vote hindered in the states that have passed voter ID laws.
The new laws will mean that citizens in 15 states, including Kansas, Alabama, and Tennessee, will find themselves unable to either register or vote if they are unable to present proof of their citizenship, such as a birth certificate. Tens of thousands of potential voters will find themselves having to present their proof of citizenship not just for voter registration, but when they show up to vote at the polls too, which seems excessive.
More details on the restrictive new laws can be found on the infographic below and at craigconnects.org. [via]Share This Infographic
