Growing up, we are always told to listen to others, but is this really sage advice? “To Build a Fire” by Jack London, is the tale of an adventure through the wild Yukon Trail of Alaska.

Thus, buildings narrate the stories of the people among the history and tell their traditions and habits to the next generation through its design, inscriptions, and details. In this essay, I will discuss how both the style and function of the Greek Parthenon and the Roman Pantheon served as typical examples of their cultures in Athens and ancient Rome. In addition to the similarities and differences between these two cultures through the two buildings.

Cooking, it has been around for almost as long as humans. When humans first started roaming the earth we needed to cook to purify our meat and to also add some flavor.
