Have you ever been to a fancy restaurant and wondered what the extra spoons and forks were for? I most definitely have. I actually went to a fancy wedding a few years ago and was so flustered with the utensil options that I ended up spilling my water all over the table! Talk about bad table manners! Knowing table etiquette is extremely useful when trying to make a good impression at a work interview or at a first date. However, etiquette classes can be costly for the average person.
Thankfully, today’s infographic gives a brief overview of table etiquette and which utensil is used for what. I had the opportunity to attend a real class, and I can tell you that today’s inforgaphic is the real deal, for free! So learn up and feel confident on your next date or job interview!

There are some inventions that take a while to catch on. Remember when Apple showed everybody the iPad for the first time? Everybody was all like, ‘Who needs an oversized iPhone that doesn’t even let you call people?!” But now look at you. Tablets all over the place. You should be ashamed.
In all seriousness though, what I’m getting at is that every market takes it’s own time to develop an audience and for that audience to grow. Take for instance the 3D printer. Never heard of it? Check this out. While it may not be a true Star Trek replicator, it is quickly becoming one the coolest and functional inventions of the 21st century, allowing one to ‘print out’ anything they want. Imagine, you could print out chairs for party guests, print out a new watch of your own design. You could even print out another 3d printer!!
Though it is a new technology and the prices are still high, I could imagine this machine revolutionizing how we as consumers can get what we want. It’s the next step from making digital ideas into physical realities. I know I want one, what do you think? Is this just a fad? Do you think that this is the next big thing?

As everyone likely knows, bills are never fun to pay. At one point or another I’m sure we’ve all taken a look at our utility bills and asked “How can it be this much?” If you’re often busy it’s not always easy to keep track of the things that raise your energy bills each month, but you might be surprised to find that there are a number of small, common sense methods of keeping the utility bill low and your wallet happy.
Today’s infographic comes to us from Britain, but the tips that it gives to save money each month is sound advice anywhere. Turning off lights that aren’t currently being used is always a good energy-saver, but I didn’t know that closing curtains at night helps keep heat from escaping through the windows and ends up saving on electricity. Another tip that could help save on energy is keeping electronic devices (computers, TVs, etc.) off instead of on standby; I know I could benefit from that tip in particular.
For more helpful hints on how to reduce your energy bill each month have a look at the infographic below. [Via]Share This Infographic
Hi friends! My name is Lindsey, and I am thrilled to announce that I am the new Sunday contributor to Daily Infographic. A little about me: I was born and raised in Austin, Texas, graduated from St. Edward’s University with a B.A. in Psychology and a minor in Spanish, and am the Alumni Relations Coordinator for a study abroad company specializing in professional development—teaching college students how to leverage their study abroad experience into marketable skills and/or careers. That said, I couldn’t think of a better way to kick off my Sunday stay here than with an infographic on the benefits of studying abroad.
The second semester of my junior year in college was spent indulging in all the flavors, sights, and sounds of Spain. I fell in love, made new friends, learned a second language, and traveled all over Europe in true study abroad student fashion. Little did I know—or care at the time—that this experience was also beginning to define my post-collegiate career goals, giving me marketable skills for the future, and increasing my employability in the eyes of an HR Manager. Deciding to study abroad is one of the best decisions you can make as a college student; the infographic I am featuring today couldn’t agree more. It’s a battlefield out there for us recent grads, we’ve got to do what we can to shine brighter than those we’re up against. Plus, you’ll have the time of your life.
