Crime is a large issue, regardless of what city you live in. High crime rates are obviously scary, but crime can strike anyone at any time, regardless of the statistics. Anyone can become one of those little figures in the equation. This infographic sites important information regarding crime, including how often homes get broken into (every three seconds) and how frequent various kinds of assaults occur (every 20 seconds for violent crime, every 35 seconds for aggravated assault.

While these facts are scary and a bit debilitating, the infographic also sites ways to stay on top of crime. Families need to stay protected. Knowing where your children are is a key component to safety. Have a trusting relationship with your child, be prepared for disasters and communicate safety concerns to your children.

Infographers, how do you keep your children safe? [Via]

The Psychology of Gambling [infographic]

I write this post being a 22 year old who has yet to take advantage of the ability to gamble. Although I wasn’t of age when I last went to Las Vegas I can definitely say I still enjoyed it. There is no doubt that city is great and has rightfully earned its slogan “What happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas.” It’s not hard to see why people get addicted to gambling, you’re around fun people, an awesome environment, oh and ever so often you when a ton of money. Emphasis on ever so often, that still seems a little generous. If it is so hard to win why is that people continue to gamble so often?

Well for one it’s the rush, you are taking a chance and if you lose it’ll suck but if you manage to win, you can win a pretty hefty amount of dough. If you’d like to get all sciency then you can blame dopamine for the exciting and addictive qualities of gambling. Dopamine for those of you who are don’t know is a chemical in your brain which when released causes the sensation of pleasure. Remember all those times you’ve wanted to quit but have almost win and decide to try again because you were so close? Well for that we have our Nucleus Accumbens to blame, being activated by near misses and wins. [via]

World’s Most Expensive Meals [Infographic]

The life of luxury is what many people strive for over their lifetimes, and those that achieve it typically have nicer things than most. Expensive cars, large houses and high-cost clothing are images that typically come to mind when people think of luxury, but some wealthy people extend their extravagant spending to another area as well: their food.

Today’s infographic from The Huffington Post goes over 10 of the world’s most expensive dishes, a surprising amount of which are regular, everyday foods that have had an expensive twist put on them.

Things like pizza with lobster and rare spices to a $1,000 gourmet hot dog make this list, with most of the entries costing at least $1,000. Many of the dishes look interesting, such as the beer that’s packaged in roadkill, but their high price tags are definitely deterrents for the average person.

For more info on the list of dishes refer to the infographic below.

Looking For Life on Mars [infographic]

Aliens, little green men, these guys; are all images we’ve probably had in our consciousness ever since Orson did that infamous War of the Worlds radio broadcast so long ago. These last few centuries, Mars has created a buzz of sorts through sci fi and even real science speculation (Nikola Tesla, the Electric Jesus himself, believed in Martians!). Even going back to Greek mythology, Mars has always loomed in the human imagination as a violent being, our brother planet as an unseen foe. It’s just a matter of time before the Martians come after us all! Well, lets just say that modern science has tamed our imaginations a bit.

In fact within the 21st century, we’ve learned many things about Mars. It’s become our hottest topic for nearby scientific discovery; the moon of the y2k generation. Mars was, at a time, similar in nature to Earth, in fact a few million years ago there might have even been an atmosphere – greenhouse-gases that could support life like here on this planet. In fact, recent discoveries from the Odessey probe have revealed that there are many riverbed-like and past oceanic features on the planet’s surface as well as actual water detection just beneath the surface of Mars. But as far as life is concerned, most likely amoeba-like bacteria if anything might still remain on Mars. So much for little green men. At least maybe the little part might still apply…

Also, google should totally utilize this 3-d mapping of Mars to create a Google Mars map. That would be cool.
