Late July 16, news broke of a brazen shooting that left two dead and 23 wounded after two people opened fire at a crowded barbecue in east Toronto. The murders made headlines around the world and kicked off renewed debate on gun crime in urban areas. By the end of the week, the debate reached a new level after a lone gunman entered a Colorado movie theatre and shot 70 people — killing 12 and wounding 58. The massacre sparked responses at every level of politics — up to Barack Obama and Mitt Romney — on if the government should step in with new regulations, or if stricter gun laws would have stopped the Colorado shooter.

With this in mind, The National Post takes a look at gun ownership around the world compared with the rate of firearms-related deaths.

What makes the Olympics in London so different from any Olympics before is its use of the whole city throughout the Games. No spectators in central London will ever be more than 30 minutes away from an Olympic venue, with some of the capital's most iconic landmarks acting as a backdrop for the greatest show on earth. Most events will take place at the ground-breaking 2.5sq km Olympic Park in Stratford, a mere seven minutes away from the city centre by Olympic Javelin train. Other events will be scattered around in all directions at key venues a short journey from the center of town. 9.6 million tickets have been issued for the Olympics but the major ticket will be London itself, with the capital set to come alive throughout the summer.

The following infographic from the folks over at Bulwark Pest Control identify which spiders in the United States are dangerous and which ones are not so dangerous. Hopefully to the relief of many, there are only TWO families of dangerous spiders in the US, the Brown Recluse, and the Black Widow. The bites of these two spiders should be feared.

There are many more spiders which will bite you, but the rest of the biting spiders in the US are not nearly so toxic as the Widow and the Recluse. However all United States spiders can be considered venomous/poisonous spiders. As a rule of thumb, don’t eat spiders and they won’t eat you.

Spotlight on Men’s Health [Infographic]

Posted by Good Infographics | Posted on Thursday, July 12, 2012 | Posted in ,

Increasing awareness of preventable health problems and encouraging early detection and treatment of disease among men and boys is an important topic year-round. Following up on Men’s Health Month, we wish to highlight that by raising awareness, advancing health education, and recognizing culturally influenced behaviors, each of us can help improve men’s health.

The statistics are staggering: seven million American men have not attended a physician’s appointment in more than 10 years. Two-thirds of men would not seek a health care professional if they were experiencing chest pain or shortness of breath, two early warning signs of a heart attack.

The most astounding finding? More than half of all premature deaths among men are preventable.

The infographic below lays out additional statistics about the state of men’s health in America, and offers suggestions for improving men’s health – including when and how often they should be tested for certain health issues. This content is for informational purposes only, and is not meant as personal health guidance.

Facebook allows us to obsess over the mundane details of our friends’ lives, and Google+ has made hanging out a legitimate activity even for people over the age of 17. So all the Web needed to finally become high school all over again was a way to tell who the popular kids were. Now it’s here in the form of Klout, a company that assigns a numerical value to how influential you are online.

Some critics have bashed Klout for a shaky score methodology, and The New Yorker called its social ranking premise downright evil. But the fact remains that if someone’s claiming to measure your popularity, you’re going to want to check it out – and try to increase it.
