The World As 100 People [Infographic]

Today’s infographic shows a remarkable study in simplification. Jack Hagley’s design shows that if the entire world were conveniently simplified to 100 people (ie equating a percentage as a number of people). It will show how our world compares as a whole in different areas of life. As a person living in a free country with many rights and privileges, it gave me quite a lot of perspective.

Take, for instance, the fact that if the entire world were 100 people, 17 of you would not be able to read these words. In fact, only 22 of you would even have the access to a computer to read this, literacy or not! But even if you could read and had a computer to read this, only 5 of you would be able to read English-how’s that for a slim chance of making a difference! Thankfully, the world is not composed of just 100 people. There are billions of us which means that there are billions of times more than the numbers above! Though I would have loved some more categories – how many have access to cell phones, sexual preference etc. I think that this infographic simplifies a lot of information in a neat way! Let us know what you think! Were you surprised by any of the statistics?

The Pay Gap [infographic]

Did you know that today, April 9 2013 is Equal Pay Day? Happy Equal Pay Day! This day represents the strides towards equal pay that have been made already, and also the pay gap that currently exists between genders. In today’s infographic, NerdWallet details the history of the gender pay gap, the professions with the largest and smallest pay gaps, and lists the cities with the lowest pay gap. A lot of valuable information, so get reading!

Large strides have been made to minimize the pay gap, but we still aren’t at even just yet. According to today’s infographic, women working full time make 77% of what men earned. That statistic carries by location and profession, but as an average we have a bit of work to do.

As women, we should begin an effort to close this gap. Be informed of the average salary of your position, don’t be afraid to negotiate, and be confident. You deserve equal pay, so go get it! [Via]

The Most-Anticipated Superhero Movies [Infographic]

April 8, 2013 |  by  |  Entertainment, Movies  |  1 Comment

Thirty years ago it would probably be hard to imagine the explosion and success that superhero movies are having today across the world. Superhero movies were still popular and fairly frequent back then, but today they have become one of the most popular and collectively highest-grossing film genres of all time. With all of the advances we’ve made (and continue to make) in entertainment technology, these fantastic stories are finally starting to be able to come to life the way they were truly, originally imagined.

Today’s infographic from Business2Community gives us a look at some of the most-anticipated big-budget superhero movies slated to release within the next few years. In May we have Robert Downey Jr. donning his famous suit and becoming Tony Stark (a.k.a. Iron Man) once again for the third installment in the Iron Man franchise, and from everything seen so far it looks to be Stark’s most challenging adventure yet. As for The Avengers, there is good news and bad news. The good news: Joss Whedon is set to take the helm again with everyone’s favorite band of mismatched superheroes with The Avengers 2, but the bad news is that we’re going to have to wait another two years for that one.

For more info on the next big superhero movies have a look at the infographic below and have a great day! [Via]

P.S. As of today I’ve been at DailyInfographic for exactly a year! Thanks for reading everyone!

Comparison Shopping Engines: Shifting ecommerce sales into overdrive [infographic]

I am no expert in the logistics behind Comparison Shopping Engines (CSE), but I am definitely an expert in using them. It’s as simple as a Google search, and voila, you have a price comparison of the item you desire from sites all over the internet. It’s just so darn convenient! Why would anyone want to take on a crowded mall when they could order all the same things, at more competitive rates, from the comfort of their home?

According to this infographic, 2012 saw a 56% overall increase in CSE traffic and helped ecommerce revenues top one trillion dollars. In addition to the 2012 CSE stats, the infographic provides pointers on keeping your business revved up when it comes to your CSEs. I’m going to be honest and say that as generous as I find this shared information to be, I understand very little of what it is actually saying. Like I said, I am more interested in online shopping than I am in knowing how I found the item I was shopping for. The great news is that there is no need to stress yourself out over your CSEs! Volusion can help you with all your shopping feed management so you have time to focus on everything else. Check them out!
