What 1% Will Save You on Your Mortgage [infographic]

I stopped smoking cigarettes. It’s worth starting to smoke just so one can experience the empowerment of quitting. But don’t start. When I stopped smoking I also stopped buying cigarettes, thus saving approximately $800 a year! I can buy a Nimbus 36 Inch Oracle Unicycle with that!

Now I am experimenting with being a Vegan. Many people believe that this is a more expensive way of living. I have yet to be convinced. As a vegan, I eat out less, and when I do I order a vegetable entree which is cheaper. At the grocery store I buy vegetables, rice, and beans, which is cheaper than meat, cheese and eggs (cheese is pricey!) In the end my saved money will end up going toward toilet paper.

Lastly is God’s gift to the world, beer. I don’t want to stop drinking the glorious drink, but its expensive and it makes you fat. Before I was 21 a friend of mine told me “Being 21 isn’t all that great, you just end up spending more money” This was the most true statement ever said. At least three times a week I am wondering if I’m going to buy beer, this is a new expense I never even thought about at 20! Maybe I’ll just lower my mortgage rate instead.

Tequila 101 [infographic]

I’m one of the few people that can actually handle tequila. Perhaps its my hispanic background that allows me to consume any type of tequila with out it completely annihilating my personhood the next day. Whatever the form or drink, I’m usually the only person to willingly request tequila. I usually take it in shot form (the lime and salt just give it the smoothest flavor!) or I’ll take it easy and request extra in my margarita.  Even though my favorite liquor is tequila, I’m sad to say that I don’t really know much about it.

Thankfully, this infographic has enlightened me on my favorite liquor. After checking out today’s infographic, I have determined that my favorite type of tequila is tequila oro. However, I am now curious of how tequila anejo and tequila extra anejo taste. Perhaps I’m not the tequila lover I boasted myself to be… Either way, I’m inspired to try out these new tequilas during these next few spring months. I encourage you to do the same! [via]

Secrets Of The World’s Oldest People [Infographic]

What is the key to immortality- is it achievable? This question has been hot on the minds of human-beings for eternity. I’ll save you some time- the answer is no. About the closest thing to achieving immortality is being a supercentenarian (not to be confused with “super-saiyan”) which is the term for someone who is 110 years or older. It seems quite difficult to become a supercententarian – there are currently only 65 known worldwide. Is there a method to achieving this hallowed state? Is there a path we can all follow to unlock the sagely gifts of supercentenarianism? Let’s find out.

Well first off, 62 of the 65 known people over 110 are women, so you men out there are already fighting an uphill battle. Beyond that, people who exercise often and have smaller body frames are more likely to live longer. Enroll in a water aerobics class! Furthermore, plant-based diets and being socially active seems to help in becoming super old. Also, being a farmer is a common trait of centenarians- which makes sense because it seem like every farmer I’ve ever met is really, really old. Geographically speaking, I assumed most centenarians would live somewhere cold (because meat spoils slower in the fridge, duh) but most centenarians have actually lived quite close to the equator.

All jokes aside, it seems the most important factor is genetics. Centenarians are 20 times more likely to have had a relative who also lived to a very old age. So what it essentially comes down to is luck. After all- the oldest person to have ever lived, Jeanne Calment, smoked for 100 years. So smoke up, and never pass on an opportunity to eat a Big-Mac- cause you probably aren’t going to live as long as the people in this infographic. [Via]

How to Choose the Right Job [infographic]

Let’s not pretend like we have a dream job or like we are super successful because we are not there yet. I actually have another year to go before I finish college and then I’ll have to make some real choices. However different our situations, everyday our lives change in some small way whether we realize it or not. Everyday we are put into situations where we have to make a choice that will affect us and our future. It’s important for us to make the choice that makes us happiest and if not the most happy at the very least content.

We all have an idea of where we want our career to go. But which job will you take to get you started on your journey? Do you want a job in a large firm where you are likely to get over looked by management or do you go for smaller firm that will allow you more representation but in the end be less stable? Or maybe you want a job where people can do their own thing and not be tied down by rules.

Personally, I feel pretty comfortable with picking a job based on the title though. Above all else, one should take pride in the work they do. Of the seven reasons listed to consider when deciding on a job, the first step is to get rid of the ones that go one the bottom of the list. [via]

Where Are All The Male Teachers [Infographic]

For the past semester, I’ve been student teaching at a middle school and I’m now currently at an elementary school as part of my music teacher certification process. It’s been a challenge learning all the ins and outs of being a teacher, but it has also come with great satisfaction. To get students excited about something that I’m greatly passionate about is an amazing thing to fulfill. Also, getting to know such amazing and unique kids in the small amount of time I’ve had at each school has been fantastic. There’s just one funny thing I’ve noticed, especially in elementary school – there sure are a lot more female teachers in comparison with male teachers.

It may not be the case for every district, but in my experience it seems that there is a serious lack in male teachers in primary and secondary levels of education. As you can see in this infographic, Canada, UK and the U.S. have less than 25% male teachers present in public schools. Now, I’m not quite convinced about the whole “pupils try harder for male teachers” thing – I really doubt that there’s legitimate research for that, but there is a lot to be said about the deficit of male teachers in public schools. Having equal role models of both sexes just sounds like a better system than the current one.
