Are Banks in Trouble? Bank On It. [infographic]

It seems like since the recession began, American citizens finally started to educate themselves on financial planning. In 2010 over half of the people who switched to a Federal Credit Union did so because of dissatisfaction with their bank. Can you blame them?

Did you know that ATM surcharges for non-members average $3 per use? Did you know ATM fees are a billion dollar industry? Seven Billion. Almost three quarters of all credit unions reimburse their customers’ ATM fees, I wish good ol’ BofA would.

Why is it that the smaller, independent banks can afford to pay ATM fees, but the big dogs like BofA and Wells Fargo can’t? One of the excuses I hear is that there are Bank of Americas everywhere – not true. In my town, there is one Bank of America – there are three RBFCUs.

I think what I’m trying to say is that I need to switch banks. Maybe I’ll stop writing this ranting blog post and do something about it. [CenturyLink Business]

How Beer Saved the World [infographic]

Beer and I are currently in a love/hate relationship. There’s no doubt the beverage itself is delicious, but my senior design project involves designing a brewery, and it’s a pain. Luckily today’s infographic focuses mostly on the positive aspects of beer. Beer has been around for a long time, and there’s a simple reason: people love it. Another reason is that a long time ago, beer was safer to drink than water due to the presence of deadly bacterias in water. How fun would it be to get baptized in beer! The Egyptians are smart.

While I’m not sure I reach the average consumption of 22 gallons per year, I’ve tasted a fair number of beers just in the city of Austin. I seem to have a bias for stouts and porters, while I almost always avoid the bitter, hoppy, pale ales. Maybe the right ale for me is out there, I just haven’t found it. [via]

Healthy Eyes In A Digital World [infographic]

Your computer screen may be causing you more headaches than you know. On average, we sit in front of a computer screen more than six hours a day. It’d be rude of me to assume all of the Daily Infographic readers fall into this category, but if you happen to be one of those people, the keys to beat iris fatigue, headaches, and unfortunately, much more, are just a few glances away.

Constant use of computers and other electronic devices can lead to CVS, which stands for computer vision syndrome. It’s symptoms include blurry vision, headaches, dry eyes, and possibly long-term nearsightedness. There are many ways to decrease your chances of CVS though, so don’t fret too much. Adjusting the positioning of your computer, changing your brightness settings, and taking periodic breaks are just a few ways to beat CVS. For those of you who dream of the day bionic eyes make an appearance, you can rest safe knowing researchers are putting in numerous man hours to make it more than a just a possibility. [Via]

Lingerie Talk [infographic]

So every girl has to wear lingerie. Whether it be a target bra and hanes panties or fancy La Perla bra and pantie sets, every girl has to have some under garmets. Some say the outfit starts with the under garmets, and looking your best starts underneath. This helpful infographic gives us a little inside scoop on the facts about lingerie.

The first few statistics are a bit predictable. The majority of people find lingerie very important (including myself), as opposed to not important at all. And 21-30 year olds care the most about lingerie, coming in at just about half.

Where this gets interesting is reading about what your lingerie says about you. Those black bra wearing women are said to be clean, strong and powerful. White wearers are loving, in touch with their emotions and natural beauties. Red wearers are bold, passionate and dramatic and blue wearers are romantic and artsy. Any of you female infographers notice any of these trends? I think I just pick pretty pieces, regardless of color, but I can see each stereotype playing out. Via
