Curious Customs From Dining Tables Around The Globe
SMPP Software ProviderTable manners which you may define as polite and proper at home might come across as unrefined, snobbish or rude elsewhere. Shared meals are a ritual all over the world, so it’s no wonder that each country will have its own take on what’s considered proper etiquette. Before we reveal customs abroad – how much do you know about etiquette at home? Let’s have a quick look at the history of table manners. During the Middle Ages, people used their hands to eat. Bread was used to help scoop up food and only the wealthy used knives. Sociologist Norbot Elias said of the period: “In good society one does not put both hands in the dish. It is more refined to use only three fingers of the hand.” Up until the 17th century, forks were seen as overly refined and effeminate. Brought over from Italy to England by Thomas Coryate, they were slow to catch on. They were eventually adopted by the wealthy with ornate designs and expensive materials.

What is an Infographic?

Information graphics or infographics are graphic (realistic) visual representations of data, information or knowledge intended to present information clearly and quickly. They can enhance discernment by using illustrations to upgrade the human visual framework's capacity to see examples and patterns. Infographics have advanced as of late to be for mass correspondence, and in this manner are composed with less suppositions about the perusers information base than different sorts of perceptions.
