Every time I am asked anything about science, all I can think of are beakers and Bunsen burners and am quick to deny my interest in the subject matter. Well, this infographic is out to change this backward thinking. As it turns out, I actually do love science! Why? Because I love outer space, animals, people, cooking, and volcanoes! Little did I know that all these loves of mine fall under science education. Now when someone talks to me about science I will think along the lines of astronomer, ornithologist, nutritionist, seismologist, or population ecologist!

For those of you out there who are starting college in the fall and frantic to find your major, take some time to think about that things you love. There are some really cool careers out there in the sciences that might not even cross your mind.

And if you’re still not sure you love science, go to PLANETSEED.com for tons of fun science labs that can be done at home or at school. [via]

Pop Culture & Casinos [Infographic]

Very few experiences in adult American life are as prevalent in pop culture as gambling, in some form or another. Countless movies, books, and TV shows have had plot points set in and/or around casinos, and for good reason: they’re extremely entertaining. Despite knowing that the odds are against them in most instances, people still flock to places like Las Vegas in hopes to strike it rich, while others go along for other entertainment venues like live music and shows (which are a little less perilous to the wallet).

Today’s infographic from Slots of Vegas gives us a look at some of the most prominent adventures and hijinks within popular culture that have taken place at casinos over the years, and there is a surprising amount of material. It is pretty common to have a movie or an episode of a television series set in a casino. Various comedies (The Hangover series) and heist movies (Ocean’s 11+) based on casino settings are extremely popular, but it goes the other way as well: some casino games are starting to be based on popular media. AMC’s “The Walking Dead,” has its own slot machine set to come out later this year, only strengthening the bond between media and casinos.

For more casino info have a look at the infographic below. [Via]

Common Types of Garage Door Problems [infographic]

Today’s infographic features a room in your house–that you may not actually consider a room–where all of your extra stuff seems to accumulate. It also may be the hang out spot or band practice area for your teenage ruffians and all of their friends, or home to your beer fridge, and maybe even where you park your car. This “room” is your garage.

Like any other room in a house a garage needs maintenance. If your garage door breaks, you could be in for a lot of trouble. If the door refuses to close there’s the issue of your security–anyone could walk in and take something–and it could also be a transportation block if you need to move your car. With any form of technology, even garage doors, one must be prepared for the unexpected and know what to look for if there’s a problem. There could be a spring that needs replacing, or a cable that needs to be fixed, or even a damaged garage door track.

So, before you plan your next garage sale, check out today’s infographic to see what can go wrong inside our garages. [Garage Door Repair Company]

Audience and Marketer Insights on Digital Advertising [Infographic]

Looking for marketing advice to add some leverage to your online advertising campaigns? Check out the IDG Knowledge Hub’s infographic displaying the benefits of utilizing more “native” style ads in your advertising campaigns instead of traditional, banner style advertising.

Internet advertising is a constantly changing business, and in order to remain successful within a progressive business, those pursuing internet advertising careers should open their eyes up to the substantial benefits of utilizing “native” ads instead of standard, banner-style ads.

Banner ads are your standard, stereotypical ads that show up at the top and bottom of webpages, almost completely out of context with whatever webpage you are visiting, that blandly attempt to draw viewers to whatever it is they are advertising. Although banner ads have proven to be successful in the past, we live in a very progressive, changing culture, with a very strong, youthful presence, who gets fed up with traditional, banner style ads.

With that being said, native ads offer webpage viewers a fresh alternative to advertising. Native ads are embedded within a webpage’s content, and are somewhat related to a webpage’s content. Additionally, native ads are more straightforward about their purpose as ads, unlike banner ads, that force their way onto a webpage just because their company “paid” to have their ad on a website.

In conclusion, native ads are the closest thing advertising can get to honesty, which in our modern-day culture is hard to come by, and greatly appreciated.

Faxing: The “Dinosaur” That Just Won’t Die [infographic]

Whether you call it a telecopier, telefax, facsimile, or a scanning photo-telegraph, the fax machine is a luxury that we all hold near and dear to our hearts. Okay, maybe not, but fax machines are still very important in the business world and they don’t seem to be going away anytime soon. One would imagine that cell phones or e-mail would have killed the fax by now, but one should think again. Since electronic signatures did not catch on as well as expected, the fax is still a leading portal to receive legitimate signed documents from business partners and clients.

Fax87 is an online fax service provider and they are making it easier than ever for people that don’t have the luxury of owning a sleek fax machine to receive faxes via e-mail! Having a fax number makes you look like you have a really legitimate business. So even if you are simply making taxidermy squirrels hold signs while rooting for popular football teams, slap a fax number on your business card and The Bass Pro Shop will be faxing you up about a contract in less than a week! That might be a stretch but it’s worth a shot! The computer based faxing market is looking to almost double from $350 million to $620 million by 2015. Now that’s something to fax about!
