Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump don’t seem to have much in common, if their life experience is any indication. Born just about a year apart, their lives took very different paths shortly thereafter. Explore the two candidates’ resumes on a side-by-side timeline so you can directly compare and contrast what each one has done.

Guess when Nintendo was founded. 1980? Wrong. Try 126 years ago. The company began as a playing card manufacturer, but thankfully things changed and Nintendo conquered the world of video games. Take a look at the timeline of Nintendo.

As a dog owner, it is not uncommon to want to spoil your four legged friend by sharing your favorite snacks or even feeding them your table scraps. We often assume that because something is safe for us that it is safe for our dog as well but that isn’t necessarily the truth. While many human foods such as sweet potatoes and carrots can be fine for your dog, others foods such as grapes or chocolates can lead to long-term health problems and, in extreme cases, even death. Knowing what foods we can and can’t give them is often the best way to look after them.

A Peek Into The Pokemon Go Phenomenon

Watch out for Pokemon Go Players! They’re all over the place, with their faces glued to their phones in search of Pokemon. While the Pokemon has been around for decades, the new app is taking the world by storm. People from all walks of life are finding themselves under the enchantment of the game.

Within the first few weeks of it’s release, 7.5 million people downloaded the app to their phones. If that’s any indication as to the popularity of the game, then there could be well over 50 million downloads within the first 2 months.

So what’s so different about this app? One thing in particular is that it promotes exercise. People using the app have to get outside and move around in order to experience the game. Pokemon Go also brings people together by incorporating face to face “social media time”.

With all the good that comes with the game, there are some aspects that are dangerous. In a few states, people were robbed while playing Pokemon Go. One group was lured into armed robbery, and the other group was victimized while paying attention to their phones instead of their surroundings. There’s also the risk of increased car accidents, as people tend to focus on their screens more than the road.

Overall, Pokemon Go has been a hit for Nintendo, increasing the company’s market value by $9 billion within the first five days of its release. If you’re not a player, it’s definitely a game that you have to experience to understand. But beware, it’s addictive!

Pokemon Go Phenomenon

America. The Land of the Free. For hundreds of years, immigrants from all corners of the world have flocked here in search of freedom; freedom of religion, freedom of speech, and even freedom to love and marry whom they please. The United States is the glowing symbol of liberty, with promises of equal rights for every citizen, and the opportunity shape your future in any way that you choose. But how much of this is propaganda, and what is the true reality for Americans? Are we really as free as we would like to believe, or has “liberty and justice for all” become just a cliche?

Well, when it comes to justice, in many cases it depends on what you do, and what color you are. For example, despite very similar usage rates, whites aren’t arrested nearly as much as blacks for simple marijuana use. Statistics show that African Americans are nearly 4 times as likely to be arrested for this reason.

Well, there’s still liberty right? Yes and no. Even in America, you’re only free to do so much. When it comes to electing an abortion, certain states have enacted ordinances that make termination of pregnancy quite burdensome. And when it comes to the freedom to live and work where you please, if you don’t have the financial and educational resources, then your choices are quite limited.

The United States is still a young and growing nation, with much to learn about true liberty and justice for all. But overall, we are leaders in taking strides to direct ourselves down the right path, and slowly addressing the bumps and bruises along the way. We’re not a perfect nation, we promote individual rights and fairness for all. God bless America.

cost of child featured

It’s no secret that children are expensive. Whether you’re a two parent household, or a single provider, making sure that each child gets what they need is a definite drain on any parent’s wallet.

In the US, the average cost to raise a child ranges from a little over $12K to almost $15K each year. That’s a lot of resources for someone not quite tall enough to reach the kitchen sink. Housing accounts for about 30 percent of those costs, but unless you planned on living out in the open wild, you would incur that expense anyway.

You’ll always have to pay for the roof over your head, child or not, but feeding someone else is a choice you want to make wisely. Food costs are the second highest expense when there’s a child in the home, and that’s an additional 16% per head.

In rural America, the overall cost to raise a child is a lot cheaper. Perhaps it’s due to a simpler lifestyle, or the fact that many families in rural areas grow and raise their own food. So where is the most expensive place to start a family? The urban northeast, of course. Can’t quite map it; just think New York. If you’re going rear your child in or near the Big Apple, it will cost you a whopping $18K per year.

Still want to take the leap into parenthood? Then let’s take a closer look at the cost of raising a kid in the United States.

History of Abortion Rights In The U.S. [Timeline]

Abortion is a major issue in the US. Where you stand on the topic could be the deciding factor in how you choose your friends, which businesses you support, and how you elect candidates to government. For decades, this controversial issue has been the focus of both politicians and activists alike.

Since as early as 1856, several states have been involved in the approval or banning of abortions for mothers in the first trimester, but it wasn’t until 1890 that the American Medical Association (AMA) got involved in the matter. This enabled women to seek legal abortions when birth would endanger their lives.

Fast forward to 1967, and abortion is a felony in 49 states. Pro life supporters seemed to have this issue locked down all over the US, but three decades later in 1998,, the landscape in America proved to be quite different. The population was nearly split on the anti abortion issue, with 45% being pro life, and 48% being pro choice.

Today, there are still more pro choice supporters than pro life supporters. The tide has indeed changed since the early 1800’s. Let’s take a closer look at the history of abortion in the United States, and see how the country has changed its laws and views over the decades.

coffee facts

When you reach for a fresh cup of joe in the morning, do you ever stop and think about what it took to get that coffee into your hands? Or how many other people are reaching for their first morning jolt at the same time as you?

With all the “hoopla” about coffee in the US, you would think that we’re the biggest consumers of coffee in the world. But it turns out that our Dutch friends drink more than anyone else on the planet. And you know what else? Most of the world’s coffee is produced in Brazil. That’s a long way from plant to cup.

When it comes to the biggest coffee consumers here in the US, the 18 to 35 year olds have cornered the market. This is partly due to the rise of coffee shops on virtually every corner. Interestingly enough though, the overall consumption of coffee in the United States is down. Back in 1946, we drank on average 2 cups per day. Now the daily average is just under one cup, and it’s not good quality either. Americans would much rather have a convenient cup of coffee than a quality cup made from fresh whole beans.

So what does all this say about Americans and coffee? In a nutshell, the thrill is gone (unless you’re age 18-35).

5 Reasons Whiteboard Animations Are So Effective

Whiteboard animations are effective

Whiteboard animations are effective

Whiteboard animations are popular tools for marketing. Businesses that employ them attract a much larger audience than those who have not embraced any form of video marketing. People have a fondness for animations, and these productions yield a high engagement rate. Here are a few reasons why whiteboard animation videos attract so many viewers.

It Gets to The Point

Whiteboard animations tend to be short and sweet. They are laser focused, meaning that they target a specific audience for a specific purpose. Viewers appreciate a production that gets to the point quickly, and entertains them in the process. Most whiteboard animations are no longer than 3-5 minutes. This is the average time a viewer is willing to pay attention and engage with a video.

They Are Fun to Watch

Some whiteboard animations are quite hilarious. People connect with businesses they feel they can relate to, and there are few better ways to break the ice and be memorable than making someone smile and laugh. The more laughs, the better, as long as your original message remains clear and concise.

People Love Animated Characters

There’s something about animated characters that resonates with viewers. They’re easy to relate to, and you can use them to present stories and situations that may be awkward for humans to carry out. With the right script, these characters can evoke emotion, and create a positive experience centered around your brand.

Allows You to Tell a Story

In addition to entertaining your audience with humor, you can use these videos to tell a story. Most people love a good story, and this is the opportunity to explain how your company got started, how you developed a product, or what drives you as an owner. What makes storytelling so engaging is that people can often see themselves in the same situations, and this helps them connect with a brand.

They Are Easily Shared

Videos are the most shared content on social media. They’re easy to link to, and often require less time to watch than it would to read an article. They can be posted on a website, or on a video sharing platform like YouTube or vimeo.

Using whiteboard animations to further your reach with marketing is not only smart, but absolutely necessary if you want to attract the right customers. It’s a tool to be reckoned with, and with the demand in video marketing, it will only increase in popularity and necessity in the coming years.

The World of Paranormal Activity In Under 2 Minutes

Paranormal Activity in under 2 minutes

Paranormal Activity in under 2 minutes

 

We love the “Paranormal Activity” series of films here at Infographic World. So we were super-excited when we were able to partner with Paramount Pictures, who wanted an animated recap of the film series ahead of the release of the final installment, “Paranormal Activity: The Ghost Dimension.” Not only did we get to dive head-first into the previous movies, but we were lucky enough to see an early screening of the new movie (all thumbs up!). From its beginnings in 2009, where we saw Katie and Micah experience some truly freaky stuff to “Paranormal Activity 4,” where we found out what happened to baby Hunter (or is that Wyatt?), these movies have made millions of dollars and inspired millions more nightmares featuring Toby the demon.

 

Get caught up with the major events in the series and get an idea for what you can expect in the final installment of the series.
