For the longest time librarians held the key to whatever question you had, books. However with the rise of the internet and technology the librarian has been swept under the rug. The librarian like any other job is having to modernize and rather than be librarians in the common sense they are becoming information specialists. Today’s infographic is all about the librarians of the past and some of their contributions to the field.

The first library was started in 1731 by Benjamin Franklin. Today that library holds thousands of historical manuscripts including the Mayflower Compact along with many items once having belonged to Franklin himself. Although female librarians are common today the first female did not work as a librarian until 1954. Continue on to find these facts and many others. Hope you enjoy today’s infographic and have a great Saturday! [Master Degree Online]

Rockin’ that Mattress [infographic]

Since you all seem to like sleep infographics, for example this one, I bring you another one. As many of you know we spend one third of our lifetimes sleeping, but did you know that is 20% less than we used to sleep 100 years ago? Today’s infographic is brought to us byCoast to Coast. Today’s sleep infographic offers something a little different than previous ones. As you will see right at the top there is information about the different types of mattresses and their pros and cons.

One thing that really caught my eye in this infographic was the magnetic bed, so I decided to do a little more research. The bed can reportedly hold 900 kgs which is about 2,000 pounds, as you can imagine these are some pretty strong magnets. Due to the magnets it is recommended you no longer have anything metallic in your house and convert to all plastic. The bed is made by the Dutch and costs 1,200,00 euros which is 1,699,143.91 American dollars. However if a cool floating bed is not cool enough for you, how about a bed 10 feet by 12 feet? As a final note, happy April Fools Day! Don’t forget that April 2nd is Pillow Fight Day! [Coast to Coast]

“Well one time when I was in my late 20′s I decided, ‘why don’t I try my hand in this?’ I went to Home Depot and I bought all the metal I would need, then I went to HEB. I got whatever I needed…hops, yeast, barley (there’s a fourth ingredient; I forgot what it is.) then I picked-up some Gatorade and hummus. I uh, well I actually didn’t know how to brew my own booze so I took it home, followed the instructions on the interweb and got drunk.”

Rolling Stones [infographic]

I have always enjoyed the music of the Rolling Stones, but as of late I have become a true fan. Beast of Burden has quickly become one of my favorite songs. Beast of Burden first appeared on the album Some Girls in 1978 and is ranked number 435 in Rolling Stone’s top 500 songs of all time. If you haven’t heard this fabulous song click here to give it a listen, it is worth your time I promise. If you don’t like it feel free to complain.

In case you have not heard of the Rolling Stones they are a British band from London and formed in April 1962. Original members of the band include: Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Charlie Watts, Brian Jones, and Bill Wyman. After several changes to the band the final line up or at least most current line up is: Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Charlie Watts, and Ronnie Wood. The Rolling Stones have released over two dozen records with Exile on Main St. ranking at number seven in Rolling Stone’s 500 Greatest Albums of all time. The band’s first international number one hit came with the May 1965 recording of (I Can’t Get No) Satisfaction. The song currently sits at number two in Rolling Stone’s Top 500 Songs of All Time. The only song to top it is Bob Dylan’s Like a Rolling Stone. Enjoy today’s infographic and I hope you find it as interesting as I did. Don’t forget to like us on Facebook! [via]

Defining a Data Scientist [infographic]

Today’s graphic is about an occupation I will never have: a statistician. My unfortunate lack of skill in the math department has held me back from this career choice. I know only how to blog and that has forced me on a budget that can afford only Wendy’s Jr Bacon Cheeseburgers. Besides math skills, this visualization has also mentioned the need for some hacking skills. Let me tell you I am no Napoleon Dynamite and hacking skills are not one of my strongpoints.

Although I may not be fit for data mining, our friends at Infographic World and Wikibon were the data scientists themselves in order to design this infographic for you. [Via]
