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.

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.

The Imperfections of the U.S. Judicial System I figured this infographic would be appropriate given the recent controversy in the Casey Anthony trial. Honestly I haven’t been following the coverage enough to form an opinion. But judging by my recent Facebook news feed, several of my friends have followed the trial and have quite a bit to say about it. Considering how popular shows like Law & Order are, I’m sure this infographic will entertain the majority of you readers. As an engineering student, I must say the legal system goes way over my head in complications. I can’t even begin to make sense of it. It must suck for the half of exonerees who have not received any financial compensation. Share This Infographic Get Free Infographics Delivered to your Inbox

10 Commonly Misunderstood Words My friends and I are self-professed grammar geeks. Upon hearing Alanis Morissette’s 90s hit “Ironic” on the radio, a worn out discussion usually breaks out: is she using the word “ironic” correctly? Yes, you can roll your eyes now. But, seriously, “It’s like ten thousand spoons when all you need is a knife” is not really ironic, is it? Today’s infographic supports my argument, but it also schools me against using “literally” as an emphatic “really,” and reminds me that politely chuckling does not a bemused person make.
