From Brawns to Brains [infographic]

With the close of the World Cup just last week, the next major sporting event the majority of Americans have to look forward to is NFL training camp. With only three weeks left until the start of mandatory mini-camps, NFL news is shifting from puff pieces towards actual relevant news. One of the most popular trends in NFL news right now is centered around the incorporation of new technological developments into team’s infrastructures.

Some of the most intriguing of these developments is how coaches have integrated the use of “sensory training” into the practice field. Coaches around the league have begun to attach sensors in players’ helmets and pads to detect the intensity of blows to the head. Additionally, sensors have been placed in the center of footballs themselves to measure quarterbacks’ trajectories when they throw passes.

The “fan experience” has also improved with the advent of new technology. In twelve out of thirty-two NFL stadiums, the FanVision app provides fans at home with a four camera view of live on-field action during games. Additionally, jumbotrons continue to enhance the experience of fans at games themselves.

It’s always interesting to monitor the constant evolution of technology and its fusion into the smallest corners of modern day society. Check out today’s infographic for more info. [Via]

Sleep Schedules Of Genius [Infographic]

As a recently graduated college student, I’ve thought a lot about my sleep schedule over the summer. For most of the year, I was student teaching in public schools around the Austin area. Naturally, as teachers do, I got used to getting up around 6 a.m. and going to bed around 10 p.m. on most days of the week. Since graduating however, I’ve slipped back to a solid wake up at 9-10 a.m. range while falling asleep at midnight, and it’s been great. It’s interesting to think about when our bodies naturally want to be awake and working, and when we’ve had enough. Here, we have a rather attractive infographic showing when some of our world’s greatest minds slept.

Now I am a fan of the ‘nap,’ and it seems that Balzac and Darwin were as well. When looking at the infographic to see when exactly they slept however, Balzac’s a bit strange! Balzac slept from 6 p.m. to 1 a.m. with a cat nap from 8:30-9:30 a.m., while Darwin had a somewhat tamer 12 -7 a.m. with an hour nap at 3 p.m. Regardless of when you get your sleep, it’s also pretty interesting to see how long these people slept. Mozart seems to have gotten around five hours of sleep, while Beethoven got a solid eight hours every day.

This begs the question though, how important is sleep in relation to creative output? Even though these particular people are all of different art forms, it would be fascinating to see that correlation.

What’s Your Poop Telling You? [infographic]

July 19, 2014 |  by  |  Health  |  3 Comments

Although there have already been a few “look at your poop” infographics on this site before, it can never hurt to know more about your sh*%. Even though it’s a touchy subject, you have to get over it because as the popular book for children decrees, “Everybody Poops.” So if you can get past the initial awkwardness, you can find out a lot of information about your health simply by checking out your stool.

But before we get into that, just for those unfamiliar with American lingo, poop doesn’t always mean what you think it means. This video is a hilarious confusion of the word taken literally rather than figuratively. Poop sometimes means you’re tired. Don’t ask me why, but the words poop and pooper have become synonymous with being a tired or unmotivated individual somewhere in the last century.

Enough of the semantics, what pearls of wisdom can one gleam from examining your own stool? Well, first determine the texture. Is it watery? Hard? Fluffy? Sticky? Lumpy? Each of these conditions have a very specific indication of your diet/health. For example, if you are pooping nuggets that are nut-shaped, chances are that you’re lacking some much needed fiber and hydration. Other factors to consider are the hue and color of your stool.

So next time you are in the bathroom going no. 2, be sure to check your poopy! For your health!

Christmas In July [Infographic]

Have you ever thought: “What if there were two Christmases?” Many people have thought this; I have thought this. In fact, I’m thinking it right now. A Christmas in July would be amazing! Turns out I’m not that clever, because it has been done before. It has been done since the forties!

For Aussies, Christmas always comes in summer. It’s a much different celebration than the winter wonderland of the Northern Hemisphere. Show your Australian brethren some love and celebrate a Christmas in July! Who doesn’t love presents, or Christmas carols, or leaving cookies out for a fat guy who breaks into your house, not to steal anything, but to give you stuff? What a celebration!

Just think – Christmas pool parties, complete with a barbecue and fireworks celebration. We’re talking taking the magic of Christmas and combining it with the debauchery of the Fourth of July. Instead of ugly Christmas sweater parties, there could be trashy Christmas tank top parties! The possibilities are endless. I am always in favor of turning one holidays into two holidays. [uglychristmassweater.com]
