Tipping Etiquette Around the World

Tipping Etiquette Around the World
Growing up I never really understood the tip, it always seemed as though we were just paying twice for someone to do their job. However as I’ve gotten older I’ve realized tipping is a pretty important thing. After all these people are handling your food and other important things you don’t want them messing with/up. As a poor college student tipping sucks, but I do it even if it is just a dollar or two, a tip is a tip right? Today’s infographic Tipping Etiquette Around the World does a nice job of comparing the way people tip in different countries. Being in the service industry is not all it’s cracked up to be, but the tips sure do help.

20 Examples Of Infographs That You Don’t See Every Day | I think we all know what an infograph is, and nowadays they are increasingly popular. The bad thing is that almost all of them are becoming boring and very similar. In this article I have collected 20 infographs that are very unique design and also interesting subjects.

The Forex Market Explained Although the stock market gets all the publicity, trading currencies in the Forex market is a little different than trading a regular company’s stock. The Forex market trades currency and trading goes on for 24 hours during 5.5 days-a-week. These hours of operation mean that the Forex market trades in 1 day what Wall St. trades in a month. Right now the US dollar is not as strong as it used to be. How stable the country is and how well tourism is going are some deciding factors for the value of a country’s currency. Obviously because of a bad recession our dollar value isn’t looking too good. The Forex market can be a bit simpler than Wall St because of a limited number of popularly traded currencies.

Do You Know The Real Cost Of Social Media? These days if you’re not using social media to build your brand then you’re way behind the times. But many companies are fooled into thinking that social media marketing is free, or at least close to free. A new infographic published on Focus.com uncovers some of the costs of using social media for marketing, from staff costs to external fees, advertising and more, and discusses whether the ROI makes social media spending worth the cost. The infographic begins with a simple statement. According to the infographic, running a social media campaign is far from free. While it does look like Facebook fans spend more money on brands than non-fans, and that well-known brands did see an increase in traffic thanks to social media (most notably Old Spice with their Man Your Man Could Smell Like campaign which saw a 2700% increase in Twitter followers, an 800% increase in Facebook followers and a 300% increase in site traffic), was the money spent on these campaigns worth the return?

16 Facts About Sleep In order to start the week off right, I thought I would share an infographic very appropriate for a Monday, one entitled “16 Things You Didn’t Know About Sleep.” As I write this I think about how amazing sleep is and of those mornings when sleep is just too appealing to pass up. As we all know sleep is essential to life. It is one of the activities we will spend a large amount of our life engaged in. Sleeping works better than any medicine or home remedy, sleeping is the cure-all. One interesting tidbit that you may be unaware of which this infographic suggests is that color television has actually affected the way people dream. As a college student I now realize the importance of sleep. Share This Infographic Get Free Infographics Delivered to your Inbox

Women in Business I’m sure you’ve been filling out a RFP, or some mundane company information form, when you see the section that asks if your company is a Women-Owned Business. My company is not run by women, however, I work with several companies that have women owners and key stakeholders. There are some advantages to being a women-owned business, but according to this infographic, women still only hold 3% of c-level positions. This is changing though.
