Sitting at a desk for more than 8 hours does not do good for one’s posture. But aside from earning a bad back, consistent use of the body’s other facilities such as hands will increase weight gain and even introduce the heart to high risks of heart disease given its lack of stimulation. This infographic is all about the best exercises one can do while in the office — such as neck rolling or even stretching one’s arms, hands and legs.
The Beatles is probably the UK’s — and likely the world’s — most biggest boy-band ever to explode since the 60s. With over 310 songs, you might be surprised that plenty of their songs were written by two or three guys that came and went from the band.
This infographic, deriving data from Wikipedia, indicates that John Lennon and Paul McCartney were the most responsible songwriters in the band. Meanwhile, George Harrison and Ringo Star — while extremely popular, barely laid hands on a pen to write their own music.
Fun facts further down, most of The Beatles’ tunes are mostly about love with about 42% of their songs mentioning the world itself. Of course, as almost-chief lyricists in the band, John Lennon and Paul McCartney have the largest vocabularies in tow.
Have you ever wondered about the benefits of taking your water supply off mains and tapping into groundwater to power your business or home? This handy graphic gives you all the benefits of utilising borehole water, the applications of it and how much you’d be likely to save if you were to utilise a borehole. Using Dales Water Services Ltd in house data and government statistics the graphic looks at the costs of mains water vs borehole water and the potential payback period involved should you decide to invest.
According to DEFRA (a UK government body) 84% of farms are still using mains water supplies so are yet to invest in a borehole and benefit from cost savings as well as a more reliable pressure in rural locations. By educating the end user, partly through this infographic, Dales Water are aiming to help business owners, farmers and even single dwellers realise the potential of groundwater for them or their business.

This summer, the United States celebrates a big birthday – 237! To commemorate this milestone, CheapOair has put together an Infographic that takes us back to colonial times, and dives a little deeper into the logistics of Independence Day. We took an in-depth look at population trends, first and foremost. Since the signing of the Declaration of Independence the United States has seen a population increase of 12,548%! That’s over 52% per year.
Ever wondered how long it would take to get to our top destinations in 1776? The predominant mode of transportation back in the day was horse and cart, travelling at an average speed of 8-10 miles per hour. This means a 3 hour flight from NYC to Fort Lauderdale turns into an excruciating 13 days. Forget about that 5 hour flight to Vegas – you’d be in that cart for 26 days! Almost a month! Let’s not forget about price, though. An average ticket to San Francisco today will set you back about $500. However, in 1776, you’d be spending a mere $17.25. Can you really put a price on convenience, though? Well maybe you can. In 2012, over $200 million worth of fireworks were imported from China to the US, many for Independence Day. Now that’s worth every penny!
