Mood & Music [infographic]

Musical preference is unique to the listener. There are so many different cultures and personalities–which makes it quite difficult to decide what to listen to. In addition to different tastes in music, there are times and places where it may not be appropriate to play something.

A scene at the airport would be hard to imagine if one was able to hear hit rap songs over the PA system. A company like Toys’R’Us would not play rock music for their customers. Personally, some kind of rock is preferred. There is a science to song choices. Often our moods can determine what we might be listening to and where we might be listening to it.

According to the infographic, more people listen to rock music when they are upset. More people listen to pop music when they are happy. The study shows that people agree that music changes with mood. I cannot recall a time I saw a person who was really angry listening to jazz. Jazz just doesn’t cut it when you’re in a bad mood.

Letting people be themselves is one of the most important things you can do for them. We all have our own things going on too though. With close to half of people speaking up when they are displeased with the music around them, I’d say that there is a good balance of respecting others and advocating for ourselves. [via]

Where You’ll Get Hacked [infographic]

People complain that they want privacy, and then they put all their information up on Facebook. Thus, hacking is ultra-easy. I have seen teenagers post pictures of their first credit card, then a month later their new college student I.D. These kids are so excited to have signs of growing up, but as we grow up our lives need to be more private to guard from hackers. Now I am a culprit of being very relaxed about my online privacy, meaning, I have the same password for multiple sites, I use my high school name as my clue, and the name of my high school is on Facebook somewhere. So hack away, I look forward to meeting the person who decides to take up my identity!

We may not worry about identity theft as much as physical property theft because it isn’t as scary and face to face as an actual robbery, but it is a digital robbery, identity theft can be life damaging. I have a friend whose family had been saving up for years to go to Disney World. This seemed to have all of the proper precautions needed to avoid identity theft or hackers. But somehow a hole was found and $6,000 was taken out of their savings. No Disney World for their family. But maybe the hacker had a nice trip instead? We can only hope.

10 Early Signs of Alzheimer’s [infographic]

I just finished reading this amazingly heartbreaking book called, Still Alice. The story tells of the struggles and ultimate transformation of a tenured Harvard professor who is diagnosed with early- onset Alzheimer’s. Being the sensitive type, the book had me tearing up every few chapters. It is a fabulously written book that I highly recommend. After reading the book, I foolishly couldn’t help but find similarities between Alice’s forgetfulness and my own. I know it’s impossible for a 22 year old to have Alzheimer’s, but the similarities were too close to ignore!

Turns out, Alzheimer’s symptoms are overlooked or misdiagnosed for other illnesses. Many times it is easily written off as being forgetful, or misdiagnosed as depression. Today’s infographic lays out 10 early symptoms found in Alzheimer’s. While the disease will ultimately progress over time, early detection will delay the process. That means early diagnosis and early treatment will keep you or your loved ones with you that much longer. [via]

Olive Oil [infographic]

Today’s infographic features the almighty olive oil, known to some as oil of the gods. Olive oil first originated in Ancient Greece, where the olive tree was often referred to as “the tree that feeds the children,” and has been highly sought after ever since.

Today, most of us have a sleek bottle of this highly praised oil sitting in our kitchens at home, usually next to the stove. A lot of people will stand on their soapboxes and proclaim the health benefits of this rich and ancient oil, but not everyone knows about the oil’s multitude of uses. Sophia Loren swears by it as a part of her daily beauty regimen, and Rachel Ray coined the abbreviation EVOO (extra virgin olive oil) because of the frequency of the oil’s appearance on her show. Generally, we cook with it, even if some argue that adding heat to olive oil decreases its nutritional value. We can sauté, brown, stir-fry, deep fry, or even add this delicious oil to homemade hummus, pesto, pizza–you name it! But, did you know it can also act as a make-up remover, sore throat soother, floor and furniture polish, lice remover, moisturizer, fuel, and so much more?!

There’s certainly a reason for olive oil’s cult following. Check out today’s infographic and look up some homemade recipes to see just what this amazing oil can do for you; health wise, beauty wise, or something in between. [Via]

50 Things a Geek Should Know [infographic]

August 13, 2013 |  by  |  Funny  |  3 Comments

I have always prided myself as being one of those “coolgirl” geeks. You know, the one that can hang with the boys and talk about Star Wars and stuff but that they all secretly want to date. Why would I want to spend endless hours talking about Star Trek? It’s part of the whole “geek-chic” phenomenon described in the geek quiz below. In my case, I convince dudes that I’m cool because I like Sci-fi and don’t care if they fart, and then use my earned “coolgirl” status as leverage on moving day when I can’t afford to hire movers. That’s just one example.

Alas, it appears I’ve gotten wrapped up in this “geek-chic” lifestyle to the point of delusion. I actually thought I could pass this geek test and go on to become the Kwisatz Haderach (whatever that is). As it turns out, I am no geek at all. According to this infographic, I am hardly even a keeg! Or in other words (Graham Chapman’s words to be exact), “We are no longer the knights who say Ni! We are now the knights who say ekki-ekki-ekki-pitang-zoom-boing!”

So I have decided to take the thick-framed glasses off (they don’t actually have a prescription anyway) and reside to my fortress of geek-free solitude. Live long and prosper fellow posers and hipsters. And let me know if you figure out how to pronounce gif. [via]
