Your Brain on Beer vs. Coffee [infographic]

Its funny, I’ve never been a fan of coffee. Despite the cringe worthy amounts of sugar and creamer add, the bitter taste just makes me cringe. However, I am most certainly a beer person. In fact, I’m actually a beer snob- and I’m totally okay with that. As much as I love beer, I have never been able to let myself enjoy a brew while working on papers or projects. I always thought it would inhibit my creative process. However, after reading this infographic, I’ll have to make it a point to pop open a cold one to let my creative juices flow! Today’s infographic describes how differently our brains function on American’s favorite beverages: beer and coffee! So if your ever having a mental block, it might be a good idea to enjoy a pint of your favorite beer!  [via]

The Life And Times Of Amitabh Bachchan [infographic]

Today’s infographic features Amitabh Bachchan, an Indian legend in the world of Bollywood. While I’ve never actually seen a Bollywood production, I was fortunate enough to have the opportunity to visit the entrancing, and multifaceted country of India.

According to today’s infographic, Bachchan is the greatest star in the history of Hindi cinema. His father was a renowned poet, and decided to give him a name that, rather fittingly, means “the light that will never die.”

Early in his career, he had trouble finding work as an on-screen actor — apparently he was too tall. But his deep baritone pipes eventually landed him a voice-acting gig in 1969 — he narrated the film Bhuvan Shome. After this he didn’t seem to have much trouble appearing on film — he averaged six movies a year during the 1970s, and had his first big break in 1971 with the movie Anand.

In 1975, he made the movie Sholay. It took a few years for the public to warm up to it, but in 1995 BBC India declared Sholay the “film of the millennium.”

This tee-totaling, vegetarian, who hates the word ‘Bollywood,’ went on to make many successful films and holds the record for “most number of best actor nominations for popular film awards.”

He’s also something of a humanitarian. Bachchan donated a generous amount to charities aimed at the health of girls in India.

And if you’re interested, he says the reason he hates the word “Bollywood” is because “it is very demeaning to [the] Hindi film industry.” He goes on to say, “I’ve always strongly opposed it because I think that it almost sounds like an abuse every time it is used.”

Rock Your Webinar: 10 Fun Tips [infographic]

March 11, 2014 |  by  |  Business, Tech  |  1 Comment

First, there were seminars — which sometimes included stuffy offices packed with coworkers and their bosses, who listened to boring speeches about reading more office memos, or upping productivity levels. Now, there are “webinars,” which actually seem kind of cool. A webinar is simply an online seminar — or web conference. You can take in the information from your webinar in the comfort of your own home — and in warm, fuzzy slippers, if you so choose. They can be sent through data streams of text-based messages, or voice and video chat.

In this day and age, it’s harder than ever to catch and hold one’s attention, so, if you’re preparing a presentation, you have to do everything in your power to make it snappy and well-received. Today’s infographic gives tips on how to give a kick-ass webinar.

Top tips: get to the point — don’t waste your audience’s valuable time; engage your audience — let them know that you’re there to solve a problem; make your presentation short and sweet — leave them wanting more; be confident — or fake it til you make it; be positive — you should at least try to have fun, and then maybe they will too; and “build momentum until you cross the finish line then wave, bow, and go.”

A Century Of Chairs [Infographic]

Chairs. They are the things we sit on. We might not think about it too much, (probably because our butts are on top of them) but there have been a wide variety of chairs that have been created in our time here on Earth. We’ve got the rocking chair, folding chair, recliner… wait, where the eff is the recliner on this infographic?! I AM OUTRAGED. The recliner is an excellent chair. Maybe they only wanted chairs that you can’t snore on top of in this infographic… especially since some of the chairs we’ve made in the last century don’t look too comfy…

This nicely stylized infographic shows some of the most distinct and classic chairs that have been created by humans in the past century and beyond. The first category of classic chairs are pretty familiar. We see these guys all the time. The ones in the second part of the list are a bit, shall we say… unique? My favorite out of these modern chairs is probably the ball chair. I mean, how did that chair ever go out of style? So fuzzy looking.

Most of the chairs on this list seem like they belong in a museum of sculpture, but I’m not the most knowledgeable person when it comes to modern chairs… maybe these chairs will have more common with this current century than in the last. But nobody’s taking away my recliner anytime soon.
