Graduation time is just around the corner, and the local news is rampant with stories about college graduates who do not have a job. In my opinion, there are just too many people in the world and we need some form of population control to keep the job market strong. The earth does have a finite capacity, and we seem to forget about that. I was fortunate enough to land a job starting right out of college, but I know plenty of others not as lucky as me. Even landing interviews can be a tough process, luckily today’s infographic will help you secure the job after getting the interview.
From my recent experiences, the best advice I can give is to be confident and genuine. While pretending to be a super perfect hot shot might get you a job, it may not get you the right job. Being honest with yourself and with the interviewer is the best way to ensure that the job you are applying for is a good fit. If at any point weaknesses are brought up, don’t be afraid to share them, but also give points as to how you are working on them. Interviewers love to see self-awareness.
Hopefully you’re not unemployed and panicking about the future. If you are, just take my good friend’s advice. Although I agree that what’s on the inside counts, it never hurts to look damn fine on the outside, so always suit up. [Via]16.6k

With the massive upswing in technological advancement, the time has come to take your favorite tech, entertainment, fitness applications, social media, and all the generosities of the digital age along with you. Amazon.com has complied this descriptive infographic to give you a general idea of wearable, or “smart”, tech that is available today, including some of its outstanding features.
Smart tech will have you fully integrated with the web and all its benefits throughout the day. Smart glasses allow you watch video’s and movie right on the glasses lens, search google results simply by using your eye, take first person photo’s, and more. Makes me wonder if anyone will be looking where they are going.
Heart rate monitor and blue-tooth trackers can both be found in wrist-worn devices. Benefits run from monitoring distances walked, calories burned, to tracking sleep patterns and training performance. I must admit that I do enjoy the benefits and advantages of technology and all that it brings. Hopefully one day with all that tech on we can walk right into our flying cars.116
Thank goodness intelligence doesn’t correspond exactly to size. If it did, I don’t think we would be doing as well as we are. We’re not exactly the biggest creatures on the planet. But, when it comes to true intelligence, it’s us humans that have the upper hand, and much to our advantage.
This infographic shows that you can measure an animals’ intelligence by comparing the ratio of the weight of its brain, to the weight of its body. That being said, it’s easy to see why we associate big animals with being rather “dumb” animals (as the stereotype goes).
What puts us on top of the intelligence list are the extra cortical neurons that we possess. They make up the cortex of the brain. This in turns, puts us atop the intelligence rankings, regardless of our less than impressive, and lanky physical stature. Have a look at the sizes of these 10 deadly animals. [Via]167
If there were some kind of manual on dating, it would have saved me years of angst about how to deal with girls. Girls please don’t take that personally, I just find it very hard to know what you want! But I bet you feel the same way about guys. We’re just picking on you today.
At least we have the internet these days, and the benefit of some data gathering. This dating infographic puts together questions about the various dating situations, in hopes of clearing things up for the guys!
Most women will google a guy before dating, so make sure your online profile is acceptable. Choosing the perfect venue doesn’t seem to be a big issues, and most are happy to make it to first base on the first date. What surprised me was that 47% of women want to wait 3-5 months before admitting they have a boyfriend. So much for being clingy!
Well whatever you ladies do, I am sure you have your reasons. The dating world is often a rather confusing and awkward place, both sexes playing strange and unfamiliar games. To all the ladies reading this, please let us know if girls really do just wanna have fun, and if not, check out this infographic about picturing your big day.169
The concept of permaculture is a relatively new concept to modern agriculture, but it’s fast-gaining momentum as the go-to method of sustainability and saving Mother Earth. It’s the idea of developing ecosystems that are sustainable and self sufficient, ie having one a piece of land that can fully feed and sustain a group of people.
The 3 core principals of permaculture that create it overall vision are: Earth care, People care, and Fair share. What these basically means is that when you care for the earth while looking out for your fellow community, everyone will have their fair share. Through the principles and practices of permaculture, waste is minimized, production output is increased, resources are re-used, re-engineered and re-applied, integration and diversity are created, and a sustained balance can be brought about between man and nature.
The global impact of permaculture stems from a change in how we look after and treat our planet. We only have one, and I believe that this is the instrument that can bring an immense and positive change to the environment as well as the lives of the people living within it. Here are interesting facts about the growth of allotment gardens in recent years to give you some better insight. [Via]133
