Daily Music Horoscope [Infographic]

Whether you are a struggling musician trying to make it in the music business, or if you are a tenure-paid college professor, music undoubtedly brings feeling, inspiration, and happiness to your business day, and your overall life in general. Depending on your tasks at hand though, certain types of music might yield more engaging, productive results than others. Different genres of music produce different chemical reactions within the brain, resulting in a variety of different feelings to arise within one’s own mind.

Take for example, embarking on a 20 hour road trip from Texas to Montana; would you rather be listening to slow, sleepy music, or upbeat, engaging, catchy music? Most people would answer with the latter option, mainly because it would help them to stay in a better mood, and if drowsy, hopefully not fall asleep (lol).

This Sonos infographic takes a fun glimpse into your everyday life to determine what kind of music will best “inspire” you to perform your daily tasks to the best of your ability. Whether you choose to believe, or even listen to this infographic’s advice at all, at least take the time to notice the effects music has on a person’s overall mood and psyche. Rock on.

When Allergies Attack [infographic]

July 12, 2013 |  by  |  Health  |  No Comments

Allergy season has been upon us for a while now. It happens every year and no one has done anything about it. Where is the cure for allergies? Where are the “I support allergies” ribbons on the back of cars? 55% of Americans have some sort of allergy–that is more than half of the population, people! I’ve had allergies since I was a child, and more than anything I would love to bury my face in a dog with no repercussions. We should take action and support allergy-prone humans like me with all our might. I want mass production of hairless pets–stat! Or maybe just government funded Zyrtec.

Allergies destroy anything that could bring joy to the people affected. You like dogs? Too bad, you’re allergic. Cats? Nope, you’ll be sneezing for days! Shellfish is delicious, too bad your face swells up when you eat it. But that’s okay, you can eat this peanut-butter and jelly sand–oops, sorry, guess you’re probably allergic to peanuts too!

One good thing about allergies is that generally they aren’t deadly if you take the proper precautions. So if you have allergies, enjoy your dog-less, fish-less, often even fruit-less half-life and go die from something else! *Achoo!*

The Anatomy of Sangria [infographic]

Holy moly it’s hot outside! What better way to quench your adult thirst than with a delicious Sangria? Sangria is loved by almost everyone who tries it and is a personal favorite of my dad. It’s cheap to make, and it tastes delicious! Be careful though, it can catch up to you if you’re not too careful.

There are many interpretations of Sangria, however, it generally consists of wine, chopped fruit, some sort of sweetener, and a small amount of brandy. My personal favorite is red wine with kiwi, grapes, berries, and lime. Drink it on the rocks and you’ll be in paradise. If you’re looking to change your go-to summer drink (sorry margaritas), I highly suggest you try Sangria. Check out today’s infographic to find your favorite version of ¬†tasty Sangria! [via]

You Can Guarantee Your Bed Is Its Bed [infographic]

For many, cats are the ideal pet. They can take themselves to the bathroom. There is no hassle like when you have to take a dog outside. Cats are small enough to exercise indoors. They clean themselves frequently and don’t usually have bad breath. They do not usually beg for food. They are all around fun animals but one thing is certain when it comes to cats… You can guarantee your bed is its bed.

The cat will dominate your sleeping area and use it as its own personal mansion. One can wake up with a face full of fur as the cat is sleeping on the owners face. One can wake to a start when the cat decides that your feet become its play-toys. While you are away or maybe just in the next room you can find that cat sleeping at the foot of the bed and wonder, “why don’t you sleep there every night?” As you try to sleep or just hang out in your room, the cat will periodically get up and stretch in a particular spot. For mine, it will be right by my pillows, which he knows I don’t like, so he can sleep on them like he’s that prissy cat from Tom & Jerry. Also, there is always a designated launchpad that your cat will use to make its great jumps to every piece of furniture it can by way of your mattress.

The territorial outline on the bed featured in this infograph may not be the same on all cat owners beds. Whether you have a cat or had a cat, one can attest to the fact that a cat will do exactly what it chooses regardless of what you like.

I think people could stand to learn a lot from a cat. [Via]

Exposure Guide: Road to Photography [Infographic]

July 10, 2013 |  by  |  Recreation, Tech  |  4 Comments

As an amateur photographer, I found this infographic to be immensely enlightening as to how cameras work and the terminology that goes along with camera mechanics.

It seems that exposure is usually the first lesson learned when it comes to understanding photography. The shutter speed or exposure time is the amount of time that the camera’s shutter is open–letting light reach the film or image sensor on your camera. As the graph shows, the longer the shutter speed, the more likely you are to get motion blur in your photo.

The aperture of the lens affects the image as well. The larger the opening, the more light will be exposed. So, if you want a more ‘in focus’ picture in daylight, reduce the aperture size so that the image will become darkened as less light enters.

Finally, there is film speed. This is the measure of a photographic film’s sensitivity to light, determined by sensitometry and measured on various numerical scales. The ISO system is used to measure the sensitivity of digital imaging systems. Insensitive film requires more light exposure to produce a similar image density that you would get from more sensitive film. This is referred to as ‘slow film’. The other end of the spectrum, ‘fast films’ are highly sensitive. This reduction of exposure in higher sensitivities, in both digital and film photography, generally leads to reduced image quality. Thus, the higher sensitivity creates a ‘grainier’ image.
