Oh no, not again. Living in Austin, I’ve been concerned with an inflating bubble for the last few years. House prices are skyrocketing; most houses have bids within minutes of listing. Some even get bid to up in the hundreds and thousands above the asking price. This bubble here is gonna burst, and I just hope my rent goes down. [Via]

It’s Startup Time in America [infographic]

Have you ever considered starting a business? If you have, now is the best time to start. All you need to start a business is an idea, resources and belief in yourself.

Technology has changed how businesses are formed, run, and grow. You no longer even need a physical location for your business; a website can take its place. The infographic below gives some details in starting a business.

One of the new ways in funding your business is crowd sourcing. There are websites where you post your idea, and people will donate money. Of course, the idea would have to be appealing. You can also use traditional methods, like obtaining a small business bank loan. However, it’s best to be prepared for hurdles and obstacles if you do not have good credit.

Another advantage technology gives us is the Cloud, because it can store data for your business. This data can be analyzed to improve your business. Storing all sorts of data on the Cloud is better than on a physical site.

The next time you have an idea for a business, don’t ignore it. Don’t give it away or put it on the back burner. Research the idea, find funding, and become a boss.

10 Cool Ways to Use PDFs [infographic]

You use PDFs, I use PDFs, we all use PDFs pretty frequently. Today’s graphic explores the uses we know well, and also some surprising ways to utilize this format. Did you know the eSignature industry is expected to be worth $5 billion by 2020? Guess what the backbone of that industry is… Yup, PDFs. This isn’t just future stuff. Just last spring, I signed my lease completely paper-free. It was an easy process where the realtor, landlord and residents all had access to one shared, digital lease. We could comment and make changes right there online instantly. I also have it stored online, so any time I want to check out my lease I just bring it up on the computer. No more looking through filing cabinets.

PDFs will continue to be one of the most used formats on our computers. Get ready to see more of them. [Click Here for the Infographic]

Kids and STEM [infographic]

Science is the future. And today’s children are tomorrow’s adults. And I’m a young adult writing for DailyInfographic, but I still care about the progress of technology. Science, technology, engineering, and math occupations are some of the most challenging yet rewarding fields to pursue. Jobs within these realms provide an atmosphere that promotes the union of exploratory creativity with focused practice of standard knowledge, generating some of the most intelligent individuals around. And the entire world benefits from the work of these people.

Almost 50 percent of economic growth in the past 50 years can be attributed to advances in technology alone. And every second, the world is only becoming more and more technological. Engineering jobs are expected to grow, and so engineering degrees are in high demand.

But even if after receiving some kind of STEM degree, one was to decide to follow another career path, he/she would most likely receive higher earnings than someone with a non-STEM degree. Most people who pursue a STEM degree, however, choose to do so well before college anyway. About 93 percent of U.S. parents believe that STEM education is a must. And even though I am not a parent, I could not agree more.

Science is the most important study of all. It is the mother to all other subjects. It is essentially just learning. We, as human beings, are obliged to answer our own questions.  Where did we come from? Why are we here? Where are we going? These questions give us purpose, and we must fulfill that purpose.

The Growth of Allotment Gardens [infographic]

For those of you unfamiliar with the concept of allotment gardens, today’s infographic takes a look at the benefits and details of owning and/or renting your own sustainable, personal garden plot. Allotment gardens have not historically been a staple of American culture, but overseas they have been a thriving source of natural, homegrown fruits, vegetables, and livestock to city dwellers for centuries.

Following the Industrial Revolution in Europe during the 18th century, once-rural workers moved to cities, and were forced to leave behind their agricultural farming practices. In attempts to find an affordable source of nutrition while living in cities, these new urban dwellers began to build gardens on the outskirts of cities to supply themselves with a cheap, sustainable food source.

Today, allotment gardens exist mainly to provide European urban populations with a source of organic food unharmed by pesticides and chemicals used by large-scale produce distributors. According to today’s infographic, when used efficiently, allotment plots can “provide enough land to feed a family of four for a year.” At an average rate between £25-£125 ($40 -$200) per year to rent, allotment gardens provide those seeking to live a healthier, more organic lifestyle with an affordable, personal space to do so.

Unfortunately, allotments have been decreasing in popularity and frequency. Rapid urbanization and technological advancements have decreased the number of allotments by 80 percent in the last 75 years. With the green initiative of modern day society though, allotment gardens have a chance to make a comeback. If re-popularized, allotment gardens can offer a small-scale solution to modern day environmental and health concerns. Check out today’s infographic for more info.
