If you’re in search of new ways to implement a little class and elegance into your daily life, tea might be the answer.

Afternoon tea is often seen as a ladies occasion, so invite the girls over for a little mid-day event. Usually served at a low table, it’s a great setting to enjoy pastries, scones, and conversation amongst friends.

High tea usually takes place between 5 & 7 pm and was viewed as a working class meal. The infographic also shares some things to serve with tea, which include sponge cakes and one of my favorites, Shepard’s Pie. The infographic also shares protocol during tea time, ensuring you from being dismissed and potentially embarrassed. Give the infographic a good read! It’s time for tea! [Via]

I’d assume that it’s safe to say that everyone who reads this blog loves two things: the internet and images. We are all here because we love graphics, love data and are constantly on the internet. Today’s infographic is all about what we love most. Images on the internet!

Images have gotten better. Image quality has increased all over the internet. Increased image quality and an increase of images per article increases views and aids in searchability. Various new-ish aps and websites aid in the promenance of images. Pinterest boasts inspiring fashion, food and decor photos, earning swoons across America. Facebook allows users to upload photos of their friends family and fun times. Instagram, which we all know i love, gives even the most novice of photographers an opportnity to publish their own photos.

Images are beautiful and allow inspiration. Horray for the image revolution! [Via]

The Presidential Race & Social Media [infographic]

In the last presidential election President Obama utilized social media better than any president before him, of course social media hasn’t been for that many elections. This year it seems like Obama is not going to be the only one using social media. Although according to today’s infographic Obama is still dominating most social media perhaps this is because of his demographic? I’m sure having a younger more liberal demographic helps in the social media race. In the GOP Mitt Romney and Ron Paul seem to have dominated the other opponents, again Ron Paul has that younger demographic helping him out. By no means will social media determine who our next president is but it is nice to see that our candidates are moving with the times.

Everyone no matter your party should go out and vote. There is a difference between liking something on Facebook and actually going to the polls. [via]

Medicine’s Progress [Infographic]

As most Americans know, healthcare is an issue that’s currently being hotly debated. Regardless of where you may sit on the issue of healthcare politically-speaking, though, there is definitely no arguing that medicine and medical technology are advancing at an impressive rate. Modern doctors are able to do more for the human body now than at any other point in history, as today’s infographic from medexsupply.com shows us.

Medical procedures that seem commonplace and routine to us today could have been potentially terrifying or even fatal as recently as 150 years ago. Between treatments that include things such as leeches, a bone chipper and devices called “scarificators” and “carbolic smoke balls” (I can’t personally decide which one sounds worse), it might have been safer just to wait out your particular ailment back in the day rather than go to your local “Sawbones” (a.k.a doctor).

Treatments today are not only more effective but in many cases far more humane, particularly in the realm of mental health. Electroshock treatments are still used today, but in such a way that will not cause permanent damage or even possibly break vertebrae, unlike electroshock therapy in the past.

For more information on the progress of modern medicine please refer to the infographic below. [Via]

Is Social Media Making Us Socially Awkward? [infographic]

So everybody and their mom either knows about or has their own Facebook. Fact. It’s infiltrated our lives so swiftly and soundly that there is scarcely a comparison in regard to the amount of omnipotency it takes in our lives. For some it’s become the modern time-killer, the self aggrandizer, and a way for us to make friends with people who might not be our actual friends.

Though it seems I’m bashing it, Facebook does have it’s redeemable qualities – spreading news to faraway friends, allowing a quick and easy template for creating events or promotion of projects important to our lives, and giving us some self esteem on our birthdays. However, there is an undeniable side effect in making such a lonely activity, such as staring at a computer screen or phone, as ‘social’ as Facebook is.

Looking at these statistics almost 24% of people surveyed have missed important real-life moments because they were too busy trying to document it using social media. In fact, 39% of Americans spend more time socializing online rather than face-to-face and 33% prefer to meet new people online rather than in person. Though it may seem strange to those of us who have grown up without Facebook, it is slowly changing how we interact with one another on a fundamental level. I’m not sure if it’s good or bad, but Mr. Zuckerburg’s beast has certainly changed something.

Be sure and check out the other infographics we have on Facebook! Because what’s better than wasting time of Facebook? Reading about Facebook! [Via]
