Roughly 4 million acres of land and several million square miles of ocean. That's how much territory Obama protected during his presidency. At the center of his efforts is a Roosevelt-era law called the Antiquities Act which allows presidents to designate "objects of historic or scientific interest" as National Monuments. In September, the Trump administration recommended changes for 10 of these monuments. These alterations include either shrinking their size or opening them up to "traditional uses" like mining, timber farming, drilling, and commercial fishing. #environment #map #nationalmonument #conservation #trump #nature
Your epitaph — the text written on a headstone — is the last thing you can say to the world. Sometimes it's a matter of getting your own account of your life out there. Richard Nixon, for instance, disgraced by Watergate, wanted to be remembered as a peacemaker. Swipe through to see a few of the most memorable on this Friday the 13th. #fridaythe13th #epitaph #grave #quote #wisdom #illustration

The Las Vegas massacre was officially the worst mass shooting in modern US history. The deadliest mass shooting in the world took place during the Paris attacks in November 2015, when gunmen killed a total of 128 people by gunfire in various locations across the city. And in July 2011, neo-Nazi Anders Behring Breivik killed 67 people after opening fire at a summer camp in Utoya, Norway. #lasvegas #mandalaybay #gunviolence #shooting #guns
For some, the changing leaves are indicative of fall, while for others it's that alluring scent of the wildly popular pumpkin spice latte — a seasonal coffee drink, known as a PSL, that mysteriously gives you a burst of delicious pumpkin pie flavor without the hassle of baking or dishwashing. Surprisingly, those spices that go into a homemade pumpkin pie constitute less than 11% of the pumpkin pie syrup, which gives your fall beverage its incredible flavor. It has an even smaller amount of actual pumpkin. #pumpkinspice #psl #latte #fall #coffee #pumpkinspicelatte
Sean "Diddy" Combs remains the richest artist in the world of hip-hop, according to Forbes' 2017 ranking of rap artists by their total fortune. On the strength of his lucrative Cîroc Vodka partnership and other ventures, Diddy's $820 million approximate net worth leads Tidal mogul Jay-Z by $10 million and Beats Electronics founder Dr. Dre by $80 million. As Forbes notes, Jay-Z's fortune grew 30% since last year, following a $200 million investment in Tidal from Sprint earlier this year. The streaming service, which Jay-Z purchased for $56 million in 2015, is now valued at $600 million. #JayZ #Diddy #Hiphop #Drake #DrDre #Birdman #Rich #Money #Wealth
Compared to your daily cup of coffee, getting the new iPhone X might seem like a big investment. In the US, however, the average smartphone owner keeps their phone for about 690 days before upgrading. That makes the cost of the iPhone 8 a little more than $1 a day. Considering the typical cellphone user touches his or her phone 2,617 a day, the value you get for your phone almost certainly exceeds that of your cup of coffee. Puts that daily cup in perspective, doesn’t it? #iPhoneX #iPhone #apple #coffee #caffeine

Not all carbs are created equal. A growing body of evidence suggests that whole grains are a key component of a healthy diet. As opposed to their refined cousins, whole grains are an excellent source of fiber (which is key for healthy digestion), protein (which helps fill you up and power your muscles), and several key vitamins and minerals. #wholegrains #health #diet #carbs #vitamins #protein #muscles #infographic #nutrition
College rankings are ubiquitous as the school year starts. U.S. News & World Report, Niche, and Times Higher Education all released rankings in September. Critics call college rankings 'a joke,' yet the rankings are still highly cited, and do offer important data about aspects of a particular college, if readers are able to decipher them. #collegerankings #usnewsandworldreport #rankings #university #ivyleague #piechart
Streaming services are growing fast. As Netflix and Hulu make more original shows, their recognition come awards season grows, too. And it's growing at a rapid rate. Netflix nearly doubled its Emmy nominations in 2017, with 91 compared to 2016's 54. #emmys #theemmys #emmys2017 #netflix #hulu #hbo #tv #streaming #awards #emmyawards #stephencolbert
TV show hosts have always been an important part to keeping people glued to their televisions. Whether it be morning shows and late night, game shows, or 24-hour news channel anchors, networks (and now streaming giants) are dishing out big bucks to keep their talent happy. Variety has compiled the biggest estimated annual salaries of reality, news, and talk-show hosts. Check them out. #tv #salary #rich #judgejudy #ellen #chart
Hurricane Irma slammed into several Caribbean islands as a "potentially catastrophic" Category 5 storm on Wednesday, killing at least 10 people. Big hurricanes are usually defined by their wind force, but as seen with Hurricane Harvey, which made landfall late last month as a Category 4 hurricane but caused most of its damage with heavy rain, the number doesn't always accurately predict a storm's impact. Here's what the scale means: #hurricaneirma #hurricaneharvey #harvey #irma #hurricanes #hurricane #southflorida #houston #weather #storm #hurricaneseason
American companies are hoarding cash like crazy. In the second quarter of 2017, twenty-four of the largest American companies are holding on to a whopping $1.01 trillion in cash reserves. Of the $1.01 trillion, just over 80% is held in stashes outside the United States. A solid majority of the holdings are in the form of corporate and treasury bonds, which Bank of America sees as a sign that the companies aren't making a move to prepare to bring the money home yet. #apple #microsoft #alphabet #google #infographic #cash #money #business #bank #data #chart
The seventh season of "Game of Thrones" finally delivered irrefutable proof that Jon Snow is the son of Prince Rhaegar Targaryen and Lyanna Stark. Plus the series shocked viewers by revealing Jon's real name — Aegon Targaryen. When discussing Jon's legitimized parentage and his real name, Showrunner David Benioff said "That means he's the rightful heir to the Iron Throne. That changes everything." #gameofthrones #jonsnow #danaerys #targaryen #hbo #infographic #ironthrone #georgerrmartin #stark #aegontargaryen
The penultimate, seventh season premiere of "Game of Thrones" broke the record for the most watched HBO season premiere of all time when it reached 26 million views across platforms and in delayed viewing. However, when it comes to live television views for HBO season premieres, "Game of Thrones" doesn't come in first place, in fact it doesn't even come in second, or third — it comes in fifth place, at least when only looking at live views. Even though it's been 16 years since it aired, "The Sopranos" season three premiere raked in the most live views of any HBO season premiere. #Sopranos #gameofthrones #hbo #sexandthecity #sixfeetunder #chart #graph #tv #georgerrmartin
As you walk into a sunglass store, you may be overwhelmed by the wide variety of brands you have to choose from. But many of those brands are actually owned by the same company, the Italian eyeglass conglomerate Luxottica. Luxottica owns nearly every popular sunglass brand sold worldwide, as well as Sunglass Hut itself, where much of that eyewear is for sale. #sunglasses #😎 #brands #logos #eyes #sun #infographic
City and state officials across the US are stepping up their efforts to remove Confederate monuments in the wake of the violence and chaos that gripped Charlottesville, Virginia during a white nationalist rally. According to data from the Southern Poverty Law Center, hundreds of public Confederacy symbols are scattered across states throughout the country — not only in the former Confederate states, but also in Union states, border states, and states that didn't yet exist during the Civil War. #charlottesville #rally #map #confederacy #civilwar #usa #virginia #union
On August 21, 2017, parts of the United States will be treated to a total solar eclipse — when the moon crosses between the Earth and the sun, and blocks out the sun's light. If you're in the moon's shadow (the eclipse's path of totality), the sky will go completely dark for a few minutes in the afternoon, according to NASA. And the temperature will drop. From Earth, the moon and sun will appear to be about the same size. But be sure to avoid looking directly at the sun. If you aren't wearing protective glasses, ultraviolet light from the sun can penetrate and be absorbed into your retina, where it can cause a condition that eye doctors call solar retinopathy. #eclipse #eclipse2017 #solareclipse #moon #sun #earth #totaleclipse #sky #space #infographic #illustration #vector #science
Walmart gathers more data than any other US retailer on what Americans are buying, thanks to its sheer size.
