What is the Cost of a Wedding in the USA #Infographic #Wedding

Most young ladies dream of a perfect wedding. They are the princess, and the love of their life is the prince. What they don’t often think about is the price of that dream wedding. This infographic breaks down the average cost of a wedding in the United States of America.

According to data, the average cost of a wedding is close to $27,000. Still, most couples would spend a third of that on their own wedding. How pricey weddings can get can be illustrated by the average cost of a wedding venue – almost $11,000! Add an average catering bill of $68 per person, and your wedding can get quite expensive quickly, especially if you’ve invited lots of people.

Photographers, videographers, wedding planners… none of these professionals work is cheap. Add to that the cost of entertainment, the cake, the wedding dress, cost of sending out invitations. All of this without even thinking about how much the honeymoon will set the newlyweds back.

How Heroin Travels in the US #Infographic #heroin #US

This infographic shows how heroin has changed from a mostly urban problem in the United States to one mostly found in suburban and rural areas. Both the area and typical user of heroin have changed since the 1960’s. Most users are now white, young adults, and in equal parts men and women. In fact, about 90% of first-time users in the last decade were white.

So, what’s causing the increased usage? There are a few reasons that take centre stage – increasing scarcity of prescription opiates used to treat pain, heroin is more available than ever before, heroin is decreasing in price but also increasing in purity, and first-time users are naive about the dangers of addiction.

Now that we’ve answered the “why”, it’s time to address the “who.” The DEA has identified Mexico, Dominican Republic, and Colombia as major exporters of heroin to the United States. As the Northeast has the greatest amount of concern for heroin addiction, intercepting heroin routes will be key to preventing dealers from getting their supply. Hopefully, law enforcement and medical professionals will also be able to work together to help addicts heal.

100 years of National Park Service #infographic #NationalPark #US

On August 25th, the National Park Service will celebrate its 100th anniversary. It’s hard to believe a time when there weren’t any established national parks or monuments in the United States—but there once was a time. It all changed with an Act of Congress, which was then signed by President Woodrow Wilson. As the years passed, different amazing locations were put under the protection of the National Park Service. The last reported recreational visit numbers (which was in 2015) report that 307.2 million people visited national parks, monuments, historical parks/sites, battlefields/military parks, national monuments and other sites. And it makes sense—there are many wonderful places under the National Park System… 410 total sites to be exact.

Want to go explore the wonders of the U.S.? A good place to start is one of the more popular national parks. The top five include: the Great Smoky Mountains, Grand Canyon, Rocky Mountain, Yosemite and Yellowstone. Park locations are scattered all throughout the country. Surprisingly, Delaware is the only state that doesn’t have a national park or monument. Wherever you decide to go, ADT monitoring can help protect your home. Safe travels!
