Vehicle Expenses Driving To Work Over 30 Year Career

The True Cost Of Commuting To Work By Car

Have you ever stopped to consider the cost of your daily commute?

It goes beyond just gas - using a car to get to work is expensive when you calculate all of the cost factors that go into properly maintaining a car for daily use. Costs of driving include depreciation, gas, oil, maintenance, and tires. Not to mention the value of your own time. While the daily cost might seem like a necessary evil, think of the total cost over a span of 30 or 40 years. If you factor in lost opportunity cost, you could be costing yourself up to a $1 million dollars!

When thinking of sacrificing an additional $1 million to a retirement fund, a daily commute becomes a huge expense. A long commute may also cost you more than just money. Think of the time lost and the health risks that are associated. Longer commutes correlate with health risks such as obesity, high blood pressure, depression, and back pain.

This begs the question, how can you avoid a commute to save time, money and improve your health? Perhaps by taking public transportation, biking or even moving closer to the location of your work. Unsure of how much to save for retirement? Or does saving for retirement seems far off? Take a look at this young couple’s story - at the age of 30, they have saved $1million to be financially independent. Once you see the lifetime cost of commuting, you might rethink that drive to work in the morning.
*Depending on your location cost may vary on your commute.

Use The Power Of Writing To Enhance Your Health

11 Science-Backed Ways Writing Improves Your Mind, Body, and Spirit

AS US Republican Congress Writes Off Their Health Bill, You Have The Power To Write For Better Health

For many of us, writing is just a practical tool. We use it to communicate our thoughts, ideas, and experiences with other people. Other times we use it to share information, persuade, or as a creative outlet. Most of our writing today comes in the form of academic work, emails, and social media posts. You may think that outside of these uses, writing may not be able to play a role in your life.

However, considerable scientific research is showing that writing has exciting health and wellness benefits too. Writing, as a personal venture (i.e. keeping a journal), not only helps you become smarter and achieve your goals but can ease what ails you too, whether physical, emotional, psychological or spiritual. The best part is that you don’t need to be a creative genius or an avid journal writer to benefit from writing, though you will join the ranks of some of the most visionary people who ever walked the planet. I’ll bet you didn’t know that Albert Einstein, Mark Twain, Frida Kahlo, and Leonardo da Vinci all kept journals, writing down their thoughts, ideas, sketches, poems, musings, and jokes. Even more recently, Peter Jennings from ABC News, the comedian Larry David, and Star Wars director George Lucas have all used pocket notebooks to record some of their best ideas when inspiration strikes.

Writing, in whatever form inspires you, has many benefits. Whether you want a place to write down ideas throughout the day, stories or memories to process, or document, or just a place to sketch and write jokes, by keeping a journal you will be stimulating both cognitive and creative skills promoting memory, good mood, gratitude, achievement of goals, and communication, among others. In the Infographic below, we present 11 science-backed reasons why writing regular is good for your mind, body, and spirit.

Knowledge Is Power: Learn How Electricity Works

Charge Up Your Knowledge: Learn How Electricity Works

An Animated Graphic Detailing the Science and Technology of Electricity

If you’ve ever experienced a power outage, you know how important electricity is for our everyday life. From powering our morning coffee to keeping our smartphones charged, electricity is more than just what keeps appliances turned on and off. It’s also everywhere around and inside of us, like the spark of lightning during a thunderstorm or that tiny shock when you touch a doorknob.

Did you know that while Benjamin Franklin is credited as the “founder” of electricity with his famous kite experiment, there have been recorded discoveries of electric charge as far back as 600 B.C.? During this time, the Greeks found that rubbing amber against animal fur created a magnetic attraction – essentially modern day static cling! While we still battle that annoying static that happens every laundry day, we’ve come a long way since.

But maybe it’s been awhile since your elementary school science class and you’ve completely forgotten about how electricity works. Not to worry, we’ve boiled down the science for you and created a helpful animation on the inner workings of electricity. It includes the basics of electricity all the way to how we harness this power to fuel homes, schools, hospitals and more.

Top Reasons Electric Vehicles Are The Future Of Transportation

Eight Reasons EVs are the Future of Transportation

EVs can no longer be ignored as the world looks for ways to cut carbon pollution

Around the world, oil has become a dependency. For many, it might be difficult to imagine the world without gas-fueled vehicles. However, this future might not be so far off.

Auto Loan Solutions created the below infographic to highlight the ever-growing influence of electric vehicles (EVs). Aside from their economic and environmental benefits, EVs have grown in popularity for several reasons.

The low cost of battery prices, the growing number of charge stations and the benefits of EVs in the industrial sector are all influencers in EVs growing popularity. In fact, these vehicles are becoming so popular that sales forecasts predict EVs will make up 35 percent of new car sales by 2040.

This statistic is no surprise considering Tesla plans to build 1,000,000 EVs by 2020 and Ford has invested $4.5 billion in developing 13 new models by the same year. As well, industrial use of EVs is on the rise, with companies like UPS and Gnewt Cargo using EV fleets.

EVs are an advancement in technology that will meet pollution standards and create a better environment. The International Energy Agency (IEA) referred to EVs as “the heart of future sustainable transportation systems” and “necessary to meet sustainability targets” in their 2016 Global Outlook report.

This revolutionary advancement is necessary to create a sustainable future and these vehicles offer as much power as our current vehicles. New technology has made battery swapping for EVs a simple 5-minute job, and the rising number of charge stations – which currently outnumber gas stations in Japan – point to the importance of EVs, and the convenience they will offer.
Check out the below infographic to learn more about the benefits of EVs for the environment and our economy, and the major role they are currently playing in our transportation industry.

Advanced Environmentally Friendly Football Stadiums

Advanced Environmentally Friendly Football Stadiums

Futuristic "Green" Football Stadiums From Around The Globe

With the world doing its best to go green, football clubs are following suit and doing what they can to build, or in some cases change their stadiums to be as eco-friendly as possible.

In the infographic, we explore just what football stadiums can do to become greener such as, recycling rain water by collecting and storing rain to be re-used to water the pitch during dryer periods of weather. Stadiums can also install solar panels to power lighting and other electronics in and around the stadium. One easy fix that all stadiums can do, is to provide dedicated transport to carry supports to and from the stadium to cut down on the harmful gases produced by cars.

We’ll also be looking at some of the amazing stadiums of the future to see just how eco-friendly a football stadium can be, particularly in Qatar, where the 2022 World Cup will be staged and the “Garden Stadium” that is currently only just a concept but takes eco-friendliness to a whole new level.
