No Woman, No Cry [infographic]

I’d like to start today’s post by recognizing what happened in Norway this past Friday. A monster named Anders Behring Breivik set into motion a horrific plan he considered to be necessary. As a form of protest against multiculturalism and other political reforms, Breivik, a Christian right-winged extremist, set off a bomb in Oslo killing 7. Only to be followed by a massacre on Utoya Island, where he killed over 85 youth campers. Showing extremists exist everywhere. If you would like to read more click here.

Alright now to the not so morbid stuff, today is the day we have our first original infographic, created by me. The topic for today’s infographic entitled No Woman, No Cry is the iconic Bob Marley. A man, unlike Breivik, who believed in peace above all else, many of his views having been influenced by his Rastafarian religion. One of the most interesting things I learned in making this infographic was the number of children Marley had, which depending on your source, ranged from 12-13 with 1 having been adopted.

The day before performing a concert that was supposed to “ease the tension” between two Jamaican political factions of the time, Marley was attacked by a gunman receiving minor injuries. He followed through with his concert stating “The people who are trying to make this world worse aren’t taking a day off. How can I?” Marley died an early death at 36 due to acral lentiginous melanoma. Feel free to leave comments about today’s infographic what you liked or didn’t here or on our wall.

Fixed Assets: The Big Picture

Thank god it is the last day of the week. Although I didn’t have a long-grueling week, I know you did. Summer is great, the sun, the swimming, the friends, being un-employed. They’re all amazing. Once I’m not a student I won’t have the luck of a blowoff summer and I’ll be sitting at a computer everyday worrying about things like fixed assets management.

Until then I plan on having as much fun this summer as possible. My free days are coming to an end soon for the fall semester and hopefully I’ll snag a good schedule. 8:00am classes are not my thing, but everything else may be filled up. I also need to start spending less, summer sucks my wallet dry. I wish I was a company so I could save over $40,000 by managing my fixed assets. With that type of dough I could go to grad school.

Hot Jobs [infographic]

At some point in our lives most of us question our purpose and debate whether we are on the right track or not. There’s no doubt that much of this contemplation happens during our college career. Both a lack of job opportunities and a lack of passion lead to many changed majors. The challenge for most people is trying to make a living out of the things they love to do.

Gary Vaynerchuk is a high energy individual who can be entertaining to watch. He argues that you can make a living out of any passion if you simply put enough energy into it. Not sure if this applies to everybody… but he still makes a good attempt to motivate everyone.

I’m a chemical engineering major, so I’m pretty satisfied with the statistics this infographic throws out there. If you’re lost in the cloud of college, maybe this can help you find a clearer direction. But before you change majors, remember that the heart can produce money, but money can’t produce heart.

Bloody Mess [infographic]

The wealth of crime scene investigation shows on TV can lead to delusions that one knows what goes on when the CSI team pulls up. With my combined knowledge culled from CSI (pick a city) and Dexter, I like to think of myself as an amateur forensic scientist, throwing around random facts about DNA evidence and blood spatter analysis. The real fact of the matter is I am next to clueless about the realities behind these fascinating subjects. The folks over at Forensic Nursing are doing their part to educate with today’s infographic.

For any Dexter fans out there, this infographic breaks down what bloodstain pattern analysis (BPA) entails and how it works. BPA experts can examine the blood left at a crime scene and pinpoint the date and time of the crime as well as the type of weapon, among other things. The infographic also details the types of spatter, and how the analysis is made. [Via]

Furry little creatures may be my favorite thing in the world. And while my kitty at home is the sweetest ball of fur to ever exist, I have a soft spot for puppies as well. While I may not be a hardcore dog or cat person, this hilarious infographic gives some insight on the profile of dog people vs. cat people. [Via]
