5 Great Online Tools for Creating Infographics Professional infographic designers rely primarily on a core vector graphics software program to create their infographics designs. The main advantage is that all the icons, charts, images, illustrations, and data visualizations are treated as separate objects that can be easily moved, resized, overlapped, and rotated. No matter where you create the individual design elements, the final infographic design is usually put together in a vector graphics program. Alison Teal's Powerful Message on Plastics Alison Teal, TV star and eco-adventurer filmmaker, recently traveled to Indonesia to work with the conservation group Orca365 and was stunned to see how the global plastic epidemic is impacting some of the world’s most naturally beautiful locales. “Growing up and working in places like Bali, the Maldives, Mexico, and Hawaii, I’ve watched plastic pollution plague these pristine places,” she told The Inertia.

A week after Air New Zealand launched its latest inflight safety video – which swiftly went viral, clocking up 16 million views on YouTube – British Airways has released its star-studded equivalent. The six-minute film runs through the safety instructions for BA flights, as well as introducing their Flying Start charity, which supports Comic Relief. The video – produced in conjunction with the charity – features the likes of Chiwetel Ejiofor, Gordon Ramsay and Gillian Anderson running through the safety demo. Thandie Newton is on hand to explain where the emergency exits are, Rob Brydon demonstrates the use of a lifejacket, and Sir Ian McKellen and Warwick Davis show how to use an oxygen mask. Jim Broadbent, meanwhile, demonstrates how to put his tray table up and down and Rowan Atkinson finishes off the film with some Mr Bean-style capers with the Flying Start donations envelope.
Floating Island Made of Recycled Plastic Recycled Island (Courtesy Design Villa) Considering how much trash Baltimore’s solar-powered Trash Interceptor scoops out of the city’s harbor—50,000 pounds a day!—these floating islands made from found plastic waste might just stand a chance.

12 songs to practice the pronunciation of -ED endings - Luiz Otávio Barros As you know, the “-ed” endings of regular past tense verbs can be pronounced in three different ways: /t/, /d/ and /ɪd/, which is the one most students tend to overuse. Click here for an overview of the rules. Over the years, I have found that /t/ and /d/ are easier to notice and to produce if the verb comes immediately before a word beginning with a vowel sound: liked it – /laɪktɪt/dreamed of – /driːmdəv/ To help students get their tongues around the two sounds, I usually ask them to move /t/ and /d/ to the front of the vowel sound. This makes it obvious that there’s no room for /ɪ/: 4ocean.
