In Bed With Gadgets: Not Good – Infographic

Does this sound familiar? You’re lying in bed, ostensibly ready for dreamland. But first, you grab your smartphone and set the requisite six alarms (all of them blaring the Star Wars theme). But while you’ve got your phone out, you might as well text your buddy back like you meant to. Plus, now is the perfect time to plow through those 11 games of Gems With Friends that have been on hold. Oh, and there was that sloth video you never got around to watching on YouTube. Then, maybe it’s time for bed. But you should probably throw something on Netflix to help you pass out.

It’s a perfectly normal routine. In fact, 95% of people say they regularly browse the web, text or watch TV in the hour before bed. But all that facetime with a phone, tablet, laptop or TV does more than distract — it can make it harder to go to sleep when you finally close your eyes. That can lead to sleep loss that affects your mental and physical well-being.

The Perks Of Working From Home – Infographic

If you’re part of the 86% who drive to work every day, you can devise ways to lower your gas costs, save time and improve your health — by telecommuting.

The current workforce totals more than 128 million people, and while eight out of 10 people say they would like to work from home, only half are able to cut out their average 25.1-minute commutes.

If all workers who wish to telecommute were able to at least 50% of the time, the oil saved would amount to one-third of America’s Persian Gulf imports.

The infographic below, from CarInsurance.org, details the benefits of telecommuting. What is your stance on remote workplaces? Tell us in the comments.

Sugar Consumption And Health – Infographic

The consumption of sugar will always be an issue for nutritionists and health buffs everywhere. As long as sugar remains a large part of the American diet, we will continue to hear about all the negative effects sugar can have on the body. As someone who is studying nursing, it’ll be important to understand how the overconsumption of sugar may cause many health problems in the future. Many may ask: Is this concern exaggerated? Absolutely not. Sugar is in everything and it has contributed to the growing obesity epidemic in the United States. Since 1990, sugar intake has increased by 40 lbs a year. Is it a coincidence that the obesity rate has increased by 20 percent? As a nurse, you will see many cases in which a reduction of sugar intake could have gone a long way to ensuring less visits to the hospital. It’ll be important as a nurse to educate your patients on why sugar is bad and why they should limit their consumption of sugar. This infographic will show you just how getting your daily sugar fix may be contributing to many short term and long term health issues.

Technology: Could A Hurricane Bring Down The Internet – Infographic

It wasn’t too long ago that a freak storm in Virginia took down Amazon’s cloud servers, and along with it, Instagram, Pinterest and other popular websites.

The outages, which came amid a brutal heat wave, left thousands without power and thousands more irritated at the absence of some much-beloved web services. But was the event a one-time thing or a harbinger of worse Internet catastrophes to come?

Our friends at Slashdot.org prepared the infographic below to look into the question of just how vulnerable the web is to freak weather events. The answer? More so than you might think.

Amazon and Rackspace both have major cloud computing centers in Virginia, which experienced three hurricanes from 2003 to 2004 alone. Add in climate scientists’ predictions that global warming will increase the frequency and severity of these types of storms, and there’s an argument for redundancy in your cloud network if we ever heard one.
