Ya’ll, I don’t care how bad Ramen is for me, it is damn good. And so filling also. You can really get your bang for your buck with all that salty water and noodles floating around in your tummy. I haven’t had Ramen in years, but when I see or it smell, I’m like a drug addict who needs another fix. It’s really a win- win situation when it comes to Ramen; its a filling meal for less than a dollar! The perfect college student’s snack! However, I’m sure all that Ramen cant be good for you.
Today’s infographic lists some facts about Ramen, it even gives out some neat recipes to try also! You should defiantly give them a try tonight. Heck maybe I’ll try a recipe also! [via]Share This Infographic
One of my all time favorite holidays has to be Thanksgiving. A day solely devoted to eating, drinking, napping, football and family is always a great time. Turkey, potatoes, green bean casserole, stuffing, pecan pie, gravy, cranberry sauce, corn, gravy, etc. Ugh I’m drooling already. Apparently though, these Thanksgiving foods were not always the main entrees.
In fact, the first Thanksgiving between the fabled Pilgrims and Indians included goose, duck, deer, fish, shellfish and eel. I don’t know how many households are gonna eat eel this Thanksgiving but I can bet it won’t be a whole lot. In fact, Thanksgiving wasn’t even widely celebrated until Lincoln’s incumbency in 1863 in suggestion from Sarah Hale. Other interesting facts in this infographic include where Turkeys are raised, the total weight of Turkeys raised in terms of EMPIRE STATE BUILDINGS, some myth-busting as far as Tryptophan is concerned, and travel facts about this holiday. All in all, I’m pumped about Thanksgiving this year and I cannot wait to get super stuffed and pass out on a couch in front of a blaring football game. Cheers ya’ll. [via]
When evaluating (and running) a campaign, there are so many factors to consider. You write speeches, prepare for debates, make appearances and produce ads in all media outlets. Even the most politically unsavy will note that ads on and offline have infiltrated the media in the months leading up to the election today. Marketing a politician is like marketing a brand, and the powerhouse behind the political campaign can use paid search market their candidate’s brand.
Today’s infographic looks a little bit deeper into the Paid, Owned and Earned Media used throughout the election, which may or may not affect how some of our fellow citizens vote today. Political marketers that run the presidential candidates’ campaigns devote time and money to paid search. The content is well managed, with particular terms being highlighted and omitted. Strategy is key. Do you feel that paid search and political content utilized by the Romney and Obama campaigns will affect voters’ opinions? Regardless, don’t forget to vote today! [Via]

Some jobs have an easier interview process than others. And then you have the extreme job interview: the U.S. president and U.S. vice president. These candidates are being evaluated for days, months and even years through campaigns, conventions and debates. Talk about a long hiring process for the ultimate “temporary” job!
Manpower has released two fun infographics of what the job descriptions look like for the president and vice president of the United States. These descriptions are based in the history of the U.S. Constitution and reflect the limited term associated with the positions. It can be really interesting to see what is required to hold the top spots in the U.S government.
As with any job, it is a good idea to carefully review the job description before applying and again before the interview. Make sure you match up to the requirements and qualifications. If you haven’t seen the job description, ask the employer to get you a copy.
Hopefully, your interview process is a little shorter (and easier) than the presidential candidates. [Manpower]Share This Infographic
It’s likely we’ve all seen them on just about every item we’ve ever purchased in our lifetimes. They’ve been around in mass use since the 1970′s. No matter what it is, from a small pack of gum to a luxury car, these small things that most of us most likely overlook are attached to almost everything we buy. I’m talking, of course, about barcodes.
Today’s infographic from DVICE.com shows us the history of the barcode, from its beginnings in the late 1940′s to the tags we scan with our smartphones today. We average people aren’t the only ones who use these barcodes daily, either. The U.S. military uses barcodes to help mark their inventoried ships, sometimes with codes 2 feet wide. Researchers also use very small barcodes to track the movement of certain insects.
For more history on barcodes and their uses refer to the infographic below. [Via]Share This Infographic
