The Benefits of Tutoring [infographic]

The purpose of tutoring is to help students become independent learners, providing them with the skills needed to succeed in school. However, tutoring is not just for doing better on school work. There are endless benefits to working with a tutor, such as improved work and study habits, increased confidence and attitude, or improved social and behavioral skills. Not to mention tutored students generally perform better on tests, and attend school more regularly.

When I was younger, I was part of a tutoring group comprised of several students from my class and our teacher. At the time, I had some trouble reading and pronouncing words with an ‘R’ sound. Thanks to those tutoring sessions, I eventually gained the confidence to read out loud during class. But group sessions might not work for everyone, and that’s where private or online tutoring comes in, each with their own advantages.

Although tutoring is usually better suited for those who are struggling in school, it does not mean you are a bad student. There is nothing wrong with needing to work with a tutor. Some students just need more help jumping those educational hurdles. And even if tutoring isn’t right for everyone, almost anyone can benefit from this effective way of learning.

Some Like it ICED: America’s Iced Tea Obsession [infographic]

Honest Tea has scoured the Twitterverse in search of the nation’s most prominent iced tea fanatics. No surprise Texas, Florida, and Georgia are fans, but Illinois, New York, and New Jersey top the list as well. Illinois sticks out the most for me – I suppose the Windy City really has some staunch tea-supporters.

Born in Louisiana and relocating to Texas at the ripe age of one, I grew up in the part of our glorious country called the South. Down here we have sweltering summer days that create a need only three sunny essentials can fill: swimming holes, air conditioning, and (sweet) iced tea.

Yes, we like our tea sweet in the South, so what, maybe we don’t care about all the extra calories we’re packing in – maybe we also pack it out. We tea drinkers enjoy our sports as well. I run, I walk, I drink tea at football games, and at the pool – I am the poster-child of the tea-drinking world (I’m even drinking tea as I write this post). Tea can be the perfect drink for any occasion, whether its a backyard BBQ with the family, or having an iced tea vodka at the club way too late at night. Next time your feeling thirsty, pass up that bubbly coke, or purple sports drink and see how well some good, old-fashioned iced tea can make you feel. [Honest Tea]

Get in the Innovation Fast Lane [infographic]

What is your great idea? Spray on shoes? Underwater smoothie machines? Maybe something as simple as edible toilet paper. No matter what your idea is somewhere along the line you will have to change your business model in order to be more efficient, and look better to the customer. The customer is always right. Why not believe that from the beginning? Before you even start your company just imagine that the consumer is leading your every decision, in the end the consumer is your boss.

This infographic gives 4 great steps to innovate by listening closely to what the consumer really wants. Getting to know what tickles your audiences’ fancy before trying to force them to believe that they need what you’re selling is essential. Mold what you want them to buy around what they already do. Focus on what the consumer needs. Often people get so into their schedule that they don’t even realize that they are lacking something. Instead of focusing on the physical function of your product, focus on how the product will emotionally help the consumer. Of course the best way to acquire a potential customer’s attention is to be different. Find something about your product that really makes it unique from other products.

Electroshock Therapy and the Other Ways we Treat Mental Illness [infographic]

Alright let’s see here – we’ve got leeches, holes getting drilled into skulls, people just getting legitimately tortured, and those burned as witches. It seems that over the centuries we haven’t just dropped the ball with mental health care, but have been free-falling with it into a spiraling void while clumsy fumbling to catch it like the big dumb ol’ barbarians we are. Some of those practices seemed more depraved than the people who supposedly needed them.

Thankfully though, we’re doing a lot better now right? You’d like to think, but consider the fact that we only stopped giving people lobotomies 30 years ago. Although it has been refined and rebranded as ECT (electroconvulsive therapy), we are still shocking people and most medical professionals are under the consensus that it is safe. It may very well be, but it’s not too far-fetched to think that fifty years from now it could be a cruel relic just like so many treatment methods before it. This isn’t meant to be a paranoid revolt against modern medicine, but a reflection of how interesting it is that we put so much faith into science when the guys in starched white lab coats will forever be saying “Oh wait never mind that was so totally wrong, woops”. Admitting that you’re wrong is not only an inevitability of human nature, but a key part of progress. Embrace it!

2014 FIFA World Cup [infographic]

It’s that time again and Brazil might as well be the center of the world. In case you weren’t aware, the World Cup is a pretty big deal. So much so that Brazil has spent an estimated $3.5 billion just on rebuilding their stadium. That really is an exorbitant amount of money and my first thought is, why? Surely there must be something to gain in order for Brazil to willingly invest that kind of cash. Otherwise it really would be just a gross allocation of resources that could be used to fund more positive things in the world. It turns out that there is, but the the impact that follows is not just decimals and dollars and it’s hard to quantify.

One example is that the for the last World Cup, FIFA agreed to a 0.4% tax on revenues that raised an estimated $48 million that helped 2 million children receive basic education. It is also supposed that kids who take up activities like sports are less likely to be on the streets doing drugs. The last World Cup champions were Spain, who’s citizens were divided on certain issues and in a state of political turmoil preceding it. After their victory however the nation stood much more united and experienced a period of relif from their sociopolitical woes. So maybe sports aren’t a completely useless waste of capital, but their benefit to society certainly is this very fractured esoteric thing. [Kupdates]
