Something you will learn in life is that it’s all about ME! Well, okay, maybe not everything… but the infographic I am sharing with you today gets at something I am extremely passionate about. Throughout my volunteer and work experience, I have been very fortunate to share beautiful moments with people who are differently-abled. During the past year, I have become more and more connected to the idea of serving this population before and throughout my career as a social worker. So, this is an infographic that I think needs to be shown.

Many people take a lot of things in life for granted, and not having a “disability” is one of them. Having worked with this population, I have not only been exposed to the hopeful and magnificent moments, but I have also seen great amounts of negativity and judgment toward my friends only because of their differences. I have learned that many of these conclusions are made on false grounds and that this population has so much to offer—a fact that the world seems not yet ready to embrace.

So, as you view this infographic, I offer you the opportunity to analyze the way in which our society operates. Does the U.S. provide sufficient resources for those who are differently-abled? What else can be done in the future to better the education and employment opportunities for this population?, Thank you for reading and I hope you enjoy this infographic in honor of the 22nd anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act!

The Greatest Human and Digital Viruses of All Time [infographic]

Recently in Texas we’ve had a some instances of West Nile Virus that have resulted in (as of today) 52 deaths! Pretty scary stuff really; but when you compare it to some of the most successful viruses in history, I’m thankful that it hasn’t been worse! Viruses like the Black Death and Ebola have taken thousands upon thousands of human lives. Transmitted through normally friendly organisms, viruses can be the most frightening foe there is – the invisible kind.

Same goes for those pesky digital viruses as well. You never know when a virus will enter your computer and mess with your stuff. In this infographic they name one of the most complex viruses ever encountered. In 2010, the stuxnet virus managed to infiltrate an Iranian nuclear facility and cause their centrifuge to radically increase and decrease its speed. I’m guessing it was caught in time before mass nuclear meltdown could occur but the virus managed to damage centrifuge’s operational capacity by 30%!

Back to the West Nile Virus here in Texas, remember to try and stay away from damp stagnant areas around dawn and dusk. These are when mosquitos are most prevalent so either stay inside during these times or use bug spray! Stay safe ya’ll. For more info on symptoms click here

The Best Active Coaches In College Football [infographic]

College football is finally back in season. This is a very cool time for my school, Texas State, as it is our first season ever in division 1 as an FBS team. Although our coach does not have as spectacular of a history as our neighbor Mack Brown, he is no stranger to winning. He is extreamly close to his 200th win in college football compared to only 100 losses. We know that it will be a few years until Texas State can beat one of the big dog schools of our state, but hopefully Franchione is the man to make it happen.

I know I’m now a Bobcat fan, but I was raised a Longhorn. I am happy to see Mack Browns’ face up on this infographic. As much as UT fans are disappointed with the recent performance of the football team, Mack Brown has only been an asset to UT athletics. I do wonder when Mack is going to step down. I had thought ex-defensive coordinator, Will Muschamp was going to take over the roll, but that didn’t happen. He now is head coach for the Florida Gators. Will Brown become a legacy coach and never retire? Will he stay in this rut or win another national title? We can only wait to see. [Via]

Got Ink? [infographic]

Are you inked? Tattoos are a popular way to express your individuality, in fact we are one of the few cultures who able to get tattoos purely for self-expression. Which actually might pose a problem since tattoo removal is on the rise. Bet you regret getting your true loves name tattooed on your arm, or that dry looking tattoo on your ankle. A main reason people get tattoos is because it means something special to them; I’m sorry, but I highly doubt that the cartoon octopus on your foot is something of relevance in your life. (I obviously hate foot tattoos)

Today’s infographic gives some information about tattoos and their removal. Don’t get me wrong, I love a good tattoo story and I think tattoos are great. Tattooing is a whole other art form that requires talent and skill. I just question why people would put such…questionable images or quotes on their body. So the next time your ponding about getting some ink on your body, really think it over, and take a look at this infographic to look at removal options. [via]
