In many religions there are great restrictions and guidelines that must be followed when it comes to food selection which dates back to the biblical era. Kashrut (the Jewish dietary laws) is a perfect example of these laws.

It was believed that man should live for honor and fame, his action was courageous and glorious and his life would climax in a great and noble death. Originally, the hero's recognition was created by selfish behaviors and little thought of service to

Ancient cities were often walled to keep out invaders, and within the walls there was usually a citadel, a stro

However, as the above verse elaborates, the Greeks viewed death somewhat differently from the way we do. To them death freed their souls

The choices one makes based on society's views, may sometimes have no logic to support them.

Persons prostitute themselves when they grant sexual favors to others in exchange for money, gifts, or other payment and in so doing use their bodies as commodities. In legal terms, the word prostitute refers only to those who engage overtly in such sexual-economic transactions, usually for a specified sum of money. Prostitutes may be of either sex, but throughout history the majority
