Check out the graphic below to learn how to select the right SPF, understand application and find out how different conditions impact the need to use and reapply sunscreen.

Got Milk? What Do You Know About Milk? – Infographic

How much do you know about milk? Prior to this infographic, I must admit that my knowledge was pretty limited. I drink milk occasionally, at best. I probably eat an average of five bowls of cereal a year and drink a few glasses a month. My brothers, on the other hand are the complete opposite. They devour cereal like it’s going out of style. The two of them probably average a gallon a day. Which is a half gallon a day per brother. Yikes!

Now for some milky knowledge. Milk hits your grocery store in just two days, making it the freshest beverage. Humans over 9 years of age should drink 3 glasses of milk per day, which means I better get to the grocery and up my milk intake. Milk is also an excellent source of calcium, riboflavin, vitamin d, phosphorus, vitamin b-12 and many more. These health benefits just can’t be beat! Lets drink some milk, preferably with some cookies.

Cruising into the top spot was Selena Gomez, who attended the conference to speak on a panel called “Millennials and the Future of Creativity.” According to the infographic, created by SapientNitro, the actress and singer tweeted about her participation, earning over 2,600 additional tweets and conversations on Twitter alone. The seminar itself topped 3,863 mentions all together.

Other notable speakers included singer-songwriter Deborah “Debbie” Harry, who spoke about the entrepreneurial spirit. “Does anyone ever start at their best?” she asked. “That would be so depressing, to start at the top and work your way down.”
