Snow White and the Huntsman just hit theaters this week and I’ve got to say, I’m pretty excited about it. The fairy tale has always been a personal favorite of mine while growing up. So you could imagine my excitement when Snow White and the Huntsman came out.
In the fairy tale, both Snow White and The Evil Queen are known for their beauty, so I can’t imagine better women to cast then Kristen Stewart as Snow White and Charlize Theron as The Evil Queen. Kristen’s porcelain complexion and dark hair are a mirror image of Snow White, and Charlize’s breathtaking beauty give the audience an understanding of just how beautiful The Evil Queen is.
Both characters are stunning, but who truly is the fairest of the all? Today’s infographic lists the characteristics that both Snow White and The Evil Queen have to offer. The list provides insight to help solve the century old question looming over fairy tale land. The Evil Queen’s mirror always sides with Snow White, but who would you say is the fairest of them all?

TED has become notorious across the globe as one of the most innovative conferences of idea distribution. Standing for Technology, Education and Design, TED has opened millions of minds to a different outlook on a number of subjects. With speakers like Malcolm Gladwell, Jamie Oliver and hundreds more – TED has a specific way of cornering the greatest minds on earth. Now, with the TEDx independent conference, TED has been able to spread their brand across hundreds of countries and thousands of cities.
This last February I had the opportunity to help produce TEDxAustin. We had an amazing conference with some of the most intriguing speakers I’ve ever heard. Just recently we’ve got our first TEDxAustin talk posted on TED.com.
Some recent natural disasters like Katrina and the Asian tsunamis left thousands displaced in horrible conditions. Michael McDaniel became obsessed with finding a fix, and he has. The Exo Reaction Housing Solution is an amazing way for governments and relief organizations to quickly and effectively provide temporary housing for those who recently lost their homes. Give the video a watch and hopefully his idea will soon have very real results. [Via]Share This Infographic
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]Share This 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]Share This Infographic
