The message is simple, and the habit can be lifesaving. Thirty-eight percent of fatal fire injuries occur in homes without working smoke alarms, while 24 percent occur in homes in which at least one smoke alarm is present but fails to operate, frequently due to dead or missing batteries.

For 25 years, the Change Your Clock Change Your Battery program has been dedicated to helping share the life-saving reminder to change the batteries in your home’s smoke and carbon monoxide detectors when you change your clocks for daylight savings. This year, Energizer and the International Association of Fire Chiefs will mark the silver anniversary of one of the nation’s top home fire safety programs by donating 250,000 batteries to fire departments across the country to distribute to local families in their areas and adopting 25 fire departments in 25 cities across the nation, who, in addition to batteries, will be equipped with a variety Energizer family safety products for their department and to share in their communities.

Together, they will host Home Safety Days and neighborhood canvasses spanning throughout National Fire Prevention Month in October until the end of daylight saving time on Sunday, Nov. 4. For more information about Change Your Clock Change Your Battery, please visit their Facebook Page.

I hope I’m not the only one eagerly anticipating the return of the HBO show Game of Thrones. WINTER SHALL COME. One thing I’ve found in this show based from the novels by George R. R. Martin, is that there are way too many characters to keep track of from the start. As the series plays out, you start to get a handle on who everybody is and how they relate to each other. If you watch each episode just once through though, it can be hard to keep track of who the hell all of these people are (especially the second season!). So here’s an infographic to relieve those anxieties and embrace Game of Thrones in all of it’s complex character relationships, for winter is coming – March 31! There are 13 new characters, so bone up on the ones already introduced! [via]
p.s. sorry about the size, if you click on the via link you’ll find a much bigger picture of the infographic below. Also, SPOILERS if you haven’t seen the first two seasons of Game of Thrones!

I grew up in a household of golf. As a little girl, I spent my weekends watching golf with my daddy, napping on the couch to the sound of commentators. While I am not a golfer, my dad and brother are and I have been around the sport for years but I could definitely use a golf lesson, a golf history lesson and a trip to the country club pool. You know, to get a feel for the sport ;).

Lucky for me, a golf novice, today’s infographic takes us through the history of golf, allowing you learn a little about every dads’ favorite pastime. Journey through time from King James II of Scotland to the rise of golf in Canada and to the tournament days of today. This is a history lesson that you will not want to miss. Now hit the links, watch the masters and be sure to have a few John Dalys. [Via]

The Real Cost of Traffic Jams [Infographic]

If you live anywhere near a metropolitan city in the U.S., you know how much of a hassle the traffic can be. Whether it’s caused from weather emergencies or scheduled maintenance, traffic can really be a pain and cut into your daily commute. While many people experience traffic daily and sacrifice their time on the highway, many of them may not know just how much that traffic time can cut into their paycheck as well.

Today’s infographic from Nationwide Insurance explores not just how much we drive as a nation each year, but also how much extra we’re paying essentially just to wait in line to get to work. For instance, the average annual amount of money spent on gasoline for each American (just from waiting in traffic) is $713. That’s more than the average U.S. citizen makes in a week!

The graphic does offer tips for avoiding that traffic time, too. For instance, weekends and the summer months tend to yield less traffic and should provide an overall cheaper traveling experience. I don’t know about the rest of you, but for me that means less time driving and more time having fun during those relaxing summer months.

For more traffic and travel information refer to the infographic below. [Via]
