Election 2013: How the Pope is Decided

With the recent surprising resignation of Pope Benedict XVI, a whole new election process must take place to fill his shoes.

Benedict XVI’s reign has had many ups and downs. Considered a champion of traditional Christian values, he has stuck to his guns and faced many problems of the church head on like the child abuse scandal. Although, his past has had trouble escaping him. A mandatory member of Hitler’s Youth and later a german soldier during the end of the second world war, Benedict has had his fair share of hurdles in the lime light.

It has been almost 600 years since the last pope resigned. Whether it was for health reasons as stated or hidden inner-church drama doesn’t matter, the real concern should be in who will replace him. Will another strict traditional catholic replace him or are they considering a younger, more open-minded leader?

Today’s graphic details the process of pope election. Just like our political system, there are rules and regulations on picking a secessor. Two thirds of Cardinals must agree on the next Pope. Let’s hope he is an adequate addition to long list of Popes. [Via]

Interval Training [infographic]

Interval training, I love to hate it. There is no better way to see results than using this method. You’ll scorch fat in less the time, and it’ll leave you gasping for air and looking great! Interval training is a type of exercise that involves high- to – low intensity workouts. While interval training is a fantastic way to burn fat and see results, its also a way for runners to build speed.

Still confused about this promising workout? Today’s infographic provides you with all the answers and even gives some interval workouts created by professionals. However, readers be warned: listen to your body when doing interval training, it is very easy to overwork your body and get hurt . Its okay to push yourself, but if your body cant go on, then its time to stop. Have a happy workout! [via]

Ink Cost’s More Than Human [Infographic]

On the one hand, this could be a simple and honest representation of market value, based on supply and demand. It is easier to manufacture blood than ink, after all; babies are really easy to make. However, we do not use humans primarily as a resource for blood, so although blood is technically easier to make than ink, it is much more difficult to harvest (When’s the last time YOU gave blood?).
This brings us to the other hand, which is that printer companies don’t make their printers specific to their ink cartridges by accident. And you know those deals where your new laptop comes with a free printer? That’s not crazy, that’s an investment that the printer company is making in you, in anticipation of all the lovely green you’ll drop on their precious, proprietary black.

The future is, of course, digital, and as more and more people have smartphones and tablets and start adopting cloud storage services such as Google Drive and Dropbox there will be less and less need to have a “hard copy” of something. Universities (UT for one) are already using services like Blackboard, and, depending on the professor, a lot of assignments are being turned in online, and never going through the print stage at all. So people won’t always need ink, but people will always need blood.

Well, maybe not always.

Sitting Pretty [Infographic]

If you’ve ever had an office job or worked at a desk for an extended period of time you’re probably already aware of the importance of a good desk chair. The quality of the chair you sit on for most of the day can directly influence your enjoyment and level of comfort on the job, but even once you have the right chair there are certain (seemingly small) ways of sitting which can affect your comfort and health.

Today’s infographic comes from The Huffington Post and gives a few different tips for sitting at your desk that may improve the quality of your job. Propping the monitor up so that it’s eye-level, for instance, reduces strain in the neck muscles that would normally be caused from continually needing to look up and down at a monitor that isn’t eye-level.

For more tips on sitting more comfortably at your desk refer to the infographic below. [Via]
