The History of Web Clone Industry [Infographic]

COPY CAT! No one likes to be thought of as a rip-off artist, but some ideas are too good to be kept to themselves. If you think about it, originality and conformity have been combatants for as long as humans have been on this earth. Sometimes an idea stemming from a completely original source can change the world. So why wouldn’t you want to share that idea with everyone? Then the idea can be improved upon, opening up a dialogue in the creative process. Then again, when a company comes up with something that becomes popular enough, clones can create problems. When you come up with an idea, you want that idea to be yours so that authenticity becomes operative. Why should someone who steals something you created leech off of your success?

In this age of computer//internet intangibility it’s hard sometimes to draw the line. Some might think it’s best to have an open-source community. This could bring about improvements and create the possibility for choice. Then again, if everyone is ripping each other off, where is there room for new innovation? Leave comments on what YOUR opinion is on the matter! [via]

The World of Public Health [infographic]

September 21, 2012 |  by  |  Government, Health  |  No Comments

I would like to start off today’s post with a fact that caught my eye from the infographic: There were 220 health workers per 100,000 Americans in 1980, now there is only 158. In order to keep up with public health workforce demand, we need to train three times the number of graduates we have in school today. It seems like the healthcare quality in America will remain away from the global top spots.

Since public healthcare picked up steam in America we have been able to improve on a variety of treatable aliments, one of the biggest being women’s health. In undeveloped countries, women are fifteen times more likely to die during childbirth than the first world. One of the easiest ways to lower the risk is simple education. Raising awareness of healthy reproductive health and contraception can drastically change women’s health statistics.

In addition to dealing with noncommunicable health issues, the reaction time for organizations like the Red Cross and CDC for infectious outbreaks has been cut recently. The current Ebola outbreak in Uganda is a great example. Ebola is one of the most easily spread and deadly viruses to ever surface on this earth. The volunteers and doctors who treat the victims face-to-face are our modern day heroes. Regardless of your opinion on public health: ignorance to viruses like Ebola put the entire world in danger.

Sushi Etiquette [infographic]

Sushi is so tasty, definitely one of my favorite foods. So it’s unfortunate that I don’t know any sushi etiquette. In fact, after reading today’s infographic, alot of us don’t know any sushi etiquette. AND apparently I’ve been eating at bad sushi bars.

While this infographic only refers to sashimi, there are still some rules that you can apply to regular sushi as well; Like dumping wasabi into soy sauce, or even rubbing chopsticks together to remove the splinters. And if you’ve never tried sashimi, I highly recommend it, it’s so filling and fresh. This weekend, I challenge you to go out to your favorite sushi bar, order sashimi, and practice the etiquette you just learned. [via]

The Psychology of Colors [infographic]

The psychology behind color has been well documented. Red makes you hungry, pink rooms calm you down, and green is very tranquil. Today’s infographic does a very good job of breaking down the primary and secondary colors that affect us the most and in what ways. The infographic starts off by informing the reader on what colors suit certain rooms the best. From there it goes more into the psychology of the primary colors, divulging a secret unknown to me. Babies don’t like yellow.

It also speaks on how companies use a given color to pull at our heartstrings and wallets for their own gain. Enjoy the infographic below and let us know your favorite color. I like purple. Have a nice day! [Via]

Brand Love [infographic]

I am all about the brands. I have a favorite brand, be it clothes, make-up, hair product, skin products, restaurants, coffee shops. And the list goes on. I love brands that give me a reason to love them. And today’s infographic gives us some insight on the top brands of 2012, who loves them and why.

It is no surprise that Starbucks is the number one brand. Starbucks is everyone’s quick coffee fix, and I often find myself taking morning detours for a nice, hot latte. Starbucks has won America over, in part because of their fantastic branding. Everyone knows a Starbucks cup.

Today’s infographic also delves into what turns people off about brands. Bad service, wrong food and slow service listed, which shows the importance of customer service. Treat your patrons nice and they just might return.

Do you have a favorite branded restaurant? We would love to know. [Via]
