  • I have always found it hard to meet the requirements of being a student. Ever since my years of high school, I really have no idea what professors are looking for to give good grades. After some google searching, I found this service ⇒ www.WritePaper.info ⇐ who helped me write my research paper. The final result was amazing, and I highly recommend ⇒ www.WritePaper.info ⇐ to anyone in the same mindset as me.

  • I absolutely agree with the above. In addition, I would encourage using a service like HelpWriting.net to proofread application essays. Never hurts to have a second pair of eyes on these docs!

Bad Infographics: Some Examples

  1. 1. Visualcy
  2. 2. Satire (from Saturday Night Live)
  3. 3. BOO! Misleading: Data have been carefully selected and presented to portray a desired (though misleading) result
  4. 4. Better: The more complete data-set
  5. 5. Better: The more complete data-set
  6. 6. NOT ALL ‘DUCKS’ ARE BAD!! 8
  7. 7. • Scale increases from equator to poles
  8. 8. • Scale increases from equator to poles
  9. 9. • Scale increases from equator to poles
  10. 10. Sometimes the globe of Google Earth is better than Google Maps (usually for larger scale mapping)
  11. 11. Pie Charts should only be considered if it is being divided into large slices, usually into major fractions: ½, ¼, 1/3.
  12. 12. Satire, but true! 210 political parties in Iraqi election!
  13. 13. BOO! How to Lie with Pie! Area is now proportional Not proportional (plotting by radius, perhaps?)
  14. 14. Which is the largest slice? If you would be unable to slice a REAL pie into the sections you need, then you should consider a bar-graph or a table instead.
  15. 15. Better: same data Lots of empty space here! What if we delete it?
  16. 16. BOO! Same data, but y-axis is half as high: 1) needs y-scale, 2) makes differences seem more significant than they really are
  17. 17. Boo!
  18. 18. Poorly-scaled y-axis “flattens” the differences
