Hey everyone! I hope you enjoyed my last post on China, today I thought I’d continue with the theme of current events and post an infographic about baseball. For those of you who haven’t been watching or just frankly don’t care, currently in the baseball world we are in the middle of playoffs. The four teams remaining are the Texas Rangers, New York Yankees, San Francisco Giants, and Philadelphia Phillies. As all four teams head into their final games, we will see who has the want to continue on to the World Series.

I will admit that for most of the regular season I don’t watch baseball; the games are too early and frankly they can get somewhat boring. However the playoffs, in any sport, are always exciting. This round of playoffs has definitely gotten me hooked, especially since the Texas Rangers have been whoopin’ up, for lack of a better word, on those Yankees. Being from Texas, I of course support the Rangers, but what makes me want to support them even more is that this is the first time they have made the post season, which is exciting since they have been around for so long.

Those of you in San Francisco may not be too fond of this infographic, because the San Francisco Giants actually sell the most expensive beer. But whether you are interested in baseball or not, the facts presented in this infographic are quite interesting. Baseball is, after all, America’s past time, it would be completely UNAMERICAN for you to not even glance at this post. That being said I hope you guys enjoy this post and feel free to comment with who you think will win the World Series. [via]

How to Talk to Customer Service Representatives [infographic]

Bro, did you read yesterday’s post? You should, our new author wrote it. Have I read it? Hell no, I don’t care if it’s good or bad — we pay him in Trident Layers. But he did tell me he has this thing where he really likes it when people appreciate what he does. Make his day.

While we’re on the subject of liking things…Like us on Facebook! If you do, next time I see you I owe you one high-five. If I don’t know you, you can go around telling your friends that someone you don’t really know told you on the internet that they owe you a high-five. Kinda cool?

Well, today’s graphic expresses America’s disgust towards customer service. Sure, there are plenty of ways to get what you want from a customer service rep, but knowing how to talk to one is key. Being polite and having all of your information on hand when you make the call is essential. Although, it can be very frustrating when you’re speaking to someone whose first language isn’t English.

My English professor last semester was doing her dissertation on outsourced call centers. She said that when a bunch of companies first moved to India, it was one of their greatest mistakes. She told me that these companies didn’t teach sarcasm to their service reps – bad idea.
Say you’re on hold for 20 minutes. You finally get a representative.

“Thank you for calling Dell, how may I help you today?”

“Well I’d just love to listen to that hold music for another 20 minutes.”

“Umm….okay.”

Just one of the many reasons outsourcing customer service didn’t work out too well. [Via]

The Numbers Behind China [infographic]

Good Monday to all you Daily Infographic readers! I, Diego Martinez-Moncada am the newest addition to this wonderful site. To start things off I am going to go ahead and jump right in with an infographic on China. Unless you haven’t seen the news for the past couple of years, you know that China is an up and coming powerhouse.

China, as you may know, was the host of the 2008 Olympics, which helped to bring them into the international spotlight, having both negative and positive effects on their image. Prior to their spectacular opening ceremonies, China experienced much grief from other countries because of the lack or respect they have for human rights. However as time passes and other countries, like the United States of America fuel a middle class (by buying their goods), slowly China will see itself becoming more and more democratic.

As it stands now, China can best be compared to the United States during its industrial revolution. For one China does not consist of solely Chinese. There is a reason it is called the People’s Republic of China: the population consists of Han Chinese, Tibetans, Manchu, Miao, and many others. Secondly China is seeing a large growth in its utilization of unskilled labor, and with this unskilled labor comes much pollution, due to the fact that much of unskilled labor involves work in factories. However unlike the U.S. during our industrial revolution, China sees the way it is going will quickly destroy its environment, which in turn will just as quickly end their run as a powerhouse. With this in mind they are investing millions in green energy and are showing much promise in that field. Sooner than we think our run as the top dog will end and China will be deciding what happens to the international economy. [via]

Whaling Industry Timeline [infographic]

I think whales are really cool, but I think those bros on Whale Wars really must like em’. They are really intense.   If you didn’t hear from last season, a Japanese Whaling vessel rammed right into a Whale Wars boat and cut it in half. Ridiculous. The owner whose boat got cut in two boarded the Japanese Whaling ship and ended up spending a few months in a Japanese jail. Crazy?

I’m glad whaling has slowed down in the last hundred years. I hope these chill creatures stick around. [Via]
