How Wild is North America? [infographic]

Perhaps I’m a little bias, but North America is my favorite of the seven continents. We have beaches, deserts, plains, tundras, we’re so diverse in our landscapes and we experience all of the seasons. If that isn’t enough we have some of the most successful corporations and the best sports teams. All in all North America is great, consisting of the United States of America, Canada, and Mexico.

I have been to both the United States and Mexico, but I hope to someday visit the beauty that is Canada. According to this infographic, we can thank Canada for much of our natural resources. I personally love nature, being from Austin, Tx where there is great pride taken in keeping nature integrated with the city. There are nature trails all over the city, and the people fight against any sort of construction that interferes with nature. Of course, there is also camping.

Without nature there can be no camping. There is nothing like getting away from the city away from Facebook, the internet, all you have to do is enjoy the day. Nothing to worry about except what you are going to eat for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. When I say camping, I mean in a tent, not in an air conditioned R.V. With that you just stay inside all day, you have to get out and enjoy nature, after all it was here before us and will surely outlast us. If we want to be here as long as possible, I believe we have to learn to live with nature not against it. [via]

Have a holly jolly Christmas
It’s the best time of the year
Well I don’t know if there’ll be snow
But have a cup of cheer

Have a holly jolly Christmas
And when you walk down the street
Say hello to friends you know
And everyone you meet

Ho ho the mistletoe
Hung where you can see
Somebody waits for you
Kiss her once for me

Have a holly jolly Christmas
And in case you didn’t hear
Oh bygolly have a holly jolly Christmas
This year

Have a holly jolly Christmas
And when you walk down the street
Say hello to friends you know
And everyone you meet

Have a holly jolly Christmas
And in case you didn’t hear
Oh bygolly have a holly jolly Christmas
This year

Merry Christmas & Happy Holidays from everyone at Daily Infographic. Now go spend time with your families and get off the computer…

Holidays by the Numbers [infographic]

With the status of the economy still in question, there is more pressure than ever on holiday shoppers. Prior to the recession the average holiday shopper spent $900 on gifts, today an average of $688 is being spent. Just because our pocket books are lighter does not mean the holidays stop coming. Without a doubt my favorite months are November through February.

More than the gifts, it’s the spirit of the holidays that I like best, beginning in November with Thanksgiving, a time to eat non-stop. Followed by Winter Holidays, a time when houses are covered with Christmas lights. No matter your religion, Christmas lights are always a joy to look at. Not only is this a time for the holidays, but with them comes a change in weather. Being from a place where it feels like Summer all the time, the Winter time is sweet relief from the heat. A time when you can cuddle with your significant other and drink your favorite hot chocolate on the couch while watching a movie.

Something I do every year around this time is watch National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation. This movie ranks among my top favorites, if you have not seen this movie, I highly recommend it. If you are a fan of Chevy Chase, or any of the old National Lampoon movies, you will definitely like this movie. On another note, according to this infographic this time of year is when retailers make the most money, in fact up to 70% of annual sales are made during this time. [via]

I’m not sure how factual this infographic is. I’m pretty sure I’ve seen somebody dressed like these people all in the last week, not in the last 10 years. [Via]

Homeschooling By the Numbers [infographic]

December 21, 2010 |  by  |  Education  |  29 Comments

I remember when I first met my home-schooled neighbors. I was in about 3rd grade and my neighbors were twins. I would get to hang out with them after school and I could never grasp what it would be like to be home-schooled. They’d talk about how they got 2 and 1/2 hours for lunch where they could go on the computer, watch tv or go outside. They could eat whatever was in the fridge and didn’t have to wait in long lunch lines for bad food. I couldn’t understand why I wasn’t being home-schooled.

Now I noticed that homeschoolers must really enjoy their parents’ company, but it can’t be as good as all of the friends I made at public school. Sitting next to someone all year is an easy way to get to know them. I guess that there must be some homeschool meet-ups around town where home-schooled kids can find other homeschoolers to hang out with. I’m sure they aren’t awkward…

Another bonus for homeschoolers is having parents who can help with your school work, which would be pretty awesome. I mean if my parent was my teacher, I would’ve made straight A’s. Instead my parents tried to help me with my 6th grade algebra, but that’s okay. I just got done with the last math class of my life last semester, so my parentals don’t have to worry anymore.

I know a lot of parents want to homeschool their kid to get them ready for college. I feel my public school career prepared me more than enough for my time at University. It wasn’t anything the school district did to prepare me either, solely the quality of the teachers I’ve had. [Via]
