Seafood is Lifesaving [infographic]

Some of you might consider the notion that we eat fish because it’s healthy is common knowledge. Not everyone is quite as convinced, though. In fact, some of us are fully aware of this, but pull some impressive mental gymnastics to avoid eating healthy, because we’re all big babies that can’t take care of ourselves. There are plenty of reasons why seafood is good for you shown in this infographic, and countless more that could be be pulled up in a quick Google search. So to avoid redundancy, I’m going to use this space to try and debunk some the excuses we might give ourselves.

The biggest one goes out to anyone that doesn’t live close to water. Some people will actively dismiss eating fish that isn’t “fresh,” but consider the freshness of any other meat you can get in the supermarket. I personally would take a can of tuna over Spam any day. Then, there’s the very contingent fact that fish is more expensive than other meats. This is mostly true, based on what you’re comparing fish to, but the price difference is only marginal and the gap is closing across grocery stores nationwide. Most of us eat out regularly as a personal treat. If you’re already willing to pay the few extra bucks for that, then consider getting the red snapper Pontchartrain next time because that would take a lot more effort and money to make at home than a steak. Considering that I have trouble drinking eight glasses of water everyday, I think eating fish twice a week is actually pretty reasonable.

Six Ways To Destroy Las Vegas [infographic]

The City of Sin. Las Vegas has always been portrayed as a city that is bustling with life and fun. Throughout cinema, the city is a hotspot for death and destruction. Fortunately, there is neither massive destruction nor chaos running rampant in the City of Sin, so we can feel comfortable watching it happen to LV in some of Hollywood’s greatest hits.

In today’s infographic, there are six films where doom finds Sin City. Starting at number six, we find that giant radioactive lizards and insects can lay waste to the city in a remake of the Japanese hit, Godzilla. At number five, zombies rule the City of Sin, as a group of survivors pass through in search for a cure to the virus that brings the dead back to life. At number four - the most realistic – a plane full of convicts crashes into a casino.  The director used the opportunity to film the destruction of the casino at the same time as the filming of the number three spot. Mars Attacks, my personal favorite, is a story that really has it all – it’s about a group of aliens that invade Las Vegas in a comedic and yet terrifying way. At number two, another virus shows how we as humans have much to fear when it comes to survival in a city filled with millions of people. The number one spot in our six ways to destroy Las Vegas, we look to another supernatural event that causes destruction.

While watching these tremendous movies, remember to be “sin”-pathetic. Las Vegas, as hard as it is, has feelings, too. [via]

The Logistics of Voting [infographic]

There is more to voting than simply going to a polling place and casting your ballot. A lot of planning goes into an election day. Pollsters must be employed, trained, and dispatched to polling places. They start early and stay until the last person has voted. Then, election officials gather the votes in a central location and count them. All of this is done in order to have efficient and honest elections.

An election day for pollsters starts early and goes late into the night. A typical day is 12 hours long or longer. The pay differs from state to state, but usually it’s the minimum wage. Some polling places employ high school students. The request for bilingual pollsters to help out is immense. The question is, can you be a pollster?

Not just people are needed for an election day, but also funding, information, and technology. Funds are provided and spent to update voting systems with new technology. Timely information is announced to the public, such as where to vote. Mobile apps are the new technology used to track election results throughout the day.

In the next election day, think about the people who are helping you out. Think about the process election officials are going through. Finally, after you cast your vote, thank the pollsters for their services.

A Lifetime of Brushing [infographic]

The dentist seems to give me bad news every time I go in to see him. For instance, when I went to the dentist around May for a standard teeth cleaning, he told me I needed to get my bottom two wisdom teeth removed. He assured me that on a scale of 1-10, my extractions would be a 2, since they weren’t impacted or anything. Easy peasy, I thought to myself. Naturally, I was wrong; it turned out I needed three teeth removed. Obviously, eating was a little difficult after that, but nothing significantly bad happened. I was still mad about the third tooth, though. A little warning would have been nice.

I don’t hold it against the dentist for giving me bad news. I suppose he’s only trying to help. I do get tired of the look he gives me when he tells me I’ve got a cavity, or warns me that I’ll soon get one if I’m not careful. And it’s not like I don’t take care of my teeth. (Alright, I could probably take better care of them.)

I must confess I’m not a fan of flossing, but apparently, neither is the average American. Which is bad, because according to this infographic, you miss cleaning 40 percent of the tooth surface when you don’t floss… Gross! It also turns out the average person doesn’t brush long enough. Dentists recommend brushing two minutes in the morning and two minutes at night.

If you’re not convinced flossing is important yet, scroll to the bottom of the infographic to read why brushing and flossing is so beneficial. Now go brush your teeth!
