The title pretty much gives it away. Today’s infographic is all about dogs barking. If your dogs are anything like mine, you’re probably looking for a way to stop the endless barking (see section 5). Although most of my dogs’ barking is out of joy and good energy, it can still be rather frustrating to the ear drums.
If you’re also a cat fan, our Woof vs. Meow infographic might suit you better. Today is all about dogs. I love dogs. Every kind of dog. I want to hug every type of dog. I just love them all so much.
Whew! Sorry about that. Enough emotional ranting. Hope you enjoy today’s post, I definitely learned some new things about barking (although I disagree that an anti-barking drug should ever be used). Feel free to post funny dog videos in the comments below. [Via]Share This Infographic
It has been drilled into us that “an apple a day keeps the doctor away.” It’s a nice phrase, and hey, it even rhymes, but what if that glossy miracle apple is coated in pesticides? The infographic below suggests that continual exposure to pesticide-laden fruit and vegetables can lead to health risks like nerve disorders and, in children, possibly early onset puberty. It seems to me that these health risks counteract any good fruits and veggies are supposed to do. So, what to do?
The infographic suggests the ubiquitous “go organic!” route and also brings up shopping locally. While it might be a little less convenient to support a local farm or drive a little further to shop at an organic grocery store, popularity of farmers’ markets, organic food chains, and local farms’ snazzy delivery services makes these options a lot more practical.

“Stay hungry, stay foolish.” One of my favorite Steve Jobs quotes.
For the last few minutes I’ve been staring at my Macbook, thinking about what I should say about one of the most inspirational figures in my life. I thought about sharing my close connection with Apple products, and how I felt when I finally “made the switch” to mac in college. I thought about watching Toy Story for the first time and being amazed at the innovation in animation. I also considered writing about my job at Mutual Mobile where I help companies develop custom mobile applications on iPhones and iPads, and how my job wouldn’t exist if Steve had never been born. But what I really wanted to share, was why Steve was such an inspiration for me.
Steve believed in creating value above all things. Everything he ever worked on was focused on creating something that didn’t exist before. He was crazy to try and change the world, but he was brilliant enough to do it, multiple times. Steve believed in creating products that users would need, not ones they think they want. He was authoritative, brave, intelligent and revelutionary. I encorage everyone to learn from Steve’s life. This infographic gives a great overview.

I’d like to start today with a moment of silence for the Longhorns. Hate to admit the Sooners were quite better than us this year, but I’m optimistic of the future. Anyway today’s infographic The Reddit Invasion provides us with a brief timeline outlining the history of the website along with other interesting facts. If you haven’t visited Reddit you should check it out sometime, when you’re not passing your time on our site that is. In a nutshell it’s a bunch of links of trending or cool things on the internet that people decided were worth sharing.
If you’re always feeling like the last to know things this site will really help you out. Reddit was founded by Steve Huffman and Alexis Ohanian when they were 22 years old. They then sold the company to Conde Nast for $20 million who added the ability for everyone to create their own subreddit. In 2008, the same year subreddit were added, Reddit went open source as well.

Today’s infographic is something I don’t think many of us know about. HPV has been in the headlines for the last few years, but it has always been focused on getting girls vaccinated. Now with almost a 30% increase in male oral cancers since 1988, researchers believe upper throat cancer will pass cervical cancer as the country’s main human papillomavirus related cancer in the next 10 years.
This teaches us one thing about American society: we like to put our mouths on things, but cancer is no laughing matter. Like all cancer, early detection is key. With almost a 90% survival rate of throat cancer it would’nt seem too bad, but still thousands are victims every year.
In my state of Texas, girls are required by law to be vaccinated for HPV before they enter middle school. With these new statistics, I wonder if a male vaccine will ever be a mandatory prevention.
