The Imperfections of the U.S. Judicial System I figured this infographic would be appropriate given the recent controversy in the Casey Anthony trial. Honestly I haven’t been following the coverage enough to form an opinion. But judging by my recent Facebook news feed, several of my friends have followed the trial and have quite a bit to say about it. Considering how popular shows like Law & Order are, I’m sure this infographic will entertain the majority of you readers. As an engineering student, I must say the legal system goes way over my head in complications. I can’t even begin to make sense of it.

20 Examples Of Infographs That You Don’t See Every Day I think we all know what an infograph is, and nowadays they are increasingly popular. The bad thing is that almost all of them are becoming boring and very similar. In this article I have collected 20 infographs that are very unique design and also interesting subjects. Twitter Dots: Mapping all Tweets for a specific Keyword Old Norse Online: Lesson 1 Viking Expansion Although the Scandinavians enter the records of Western Europe sometime around 790 AD, which therefore marks the beginning of the so-called 'Viking Age', these northern peoples had in fact begun a process of expansion some two or three generations before. The first waves of expansion originated in Sweden and Gotland in roughly 700, leading to colonies in modern-day Latvia, Lithuania, and Estonia. In grave sites near Libau (in Latvia), we find signs of a community of traders from Gotland accompanied by women.

Are We Wired For Mobile Learning? Because of the proliferation of new technologies, the younger generation today is outgrowing traditional forms of education – remember pencils, chalkboards, textbooks and graphing calculators? Whether we are in the car, on the train, at work, or in a classroom, mobile technology in particular is giving us the ability to learn on-the-go. See the infographic below to learn why we are wired for mobile learning, and how we can use mobile technologies to educate ourselves. Top 5 Websites To Learn How To Hack Like A Pro You might be surprised to learn just how many people want to learn how to hack. The stereotype is that of the young college guy – a computer science major for sure – who spends his evenings and weekends writing up intricate hacking scripts to break into whatever computer system he can get his hands on. The truth is that what was once a male-dominated community is fast changing into one that includes folks – men and women – from many walks of life, from many countries and with many backgrounds. A recent CNET article about DEFCON makes note of the fact that claims of sexual harassment and unwanted advances are increasing. This isn’t because hackers are getting more obnoxious or offensive, but because more female hackers are entering into the community and trying to find a home there, only to find insulting behavior, and other actions unbecoming of a gentleman.

Thanks for this great graphic, learning Hindi myself. Unfortunately I think people who speak English as a first language these days aren't likely to follow through on learning a new language right through to fluency, with the "get it now" culture we live in with the internet providing answers to any questions we may have and so on, Learning Languages can be seen as to much effort! Which is a shame. Hopefully I'll keep Hindi going until I get it right! by mattwilson Oct 3
