    The Devil in the White City is written by Erik Larson, an author that takes historical events but instead of just explaining the events, he leaves his readers at the edge of their seats, wanting more, and explains gaps that are left in history regarding the events of this book. This book is set during the World's Columbian Exposition or better known as the World’s Fair of 1893. The book is based on two men that are on the opposite side of the spectrum in society: Daniel Burnham, the architect of the World’s Fair, and Herman Webster Mudgett or better known as Dr. H.H. Holmes (Dr. Henry Howard Holmes), one of the first serial killers of America and psychopath. These two seemingly different stories come together in one event that made great city of Chicago shine and be at the epicenter of the world: World's Columbian Exposition. The story of Daniel Burnham began in 1890, when Chicago wins the bid for the 1893 World's Exposition. Daniel Burnham and his then partner, John Root, are the leading architects whom would build the fair and consequently, giving Chicago a more positive global reputation, since it was known for being and still is, a city of filth, and of crimes. Burnham is faced with many obstacles, even before construction began such as the committee of the World Fair not deciding on a location for the fair, talking over a year to decide, and during the construction phase, he faced drafts for building late, construction injuries and deaths, Panic of 1893 which led to…

    My STEAM Expo experiment was testing which hamster food gives hamsters the most energy to hamsters. I tested three store brand foods: Carefresh Complete, Sunseed, and Nibble Rings. I also tested one that I made based off of the research that I did prior to the experiment. I thought that this project was perfect for my three hamsters, because they are all very tired and lazy. I also think that other people can use my type of food so that their hamsters can be energetic, too. I observed the…

    as my cousin tried to make her way in, the doors started to close. I could not possibly leave her behind. I was afraid that one of us would get stuck in between the doors but all I had to do was put my foot between the doors to stop them from closing. My heart was beating so fast while my cousin and I stood on the skytrain looking around to see how filled it was. Not one person bothered helping us. We stared at each other and could not possibly hold our laughter. I could not be more glad to go…

    Irrational Tectonic is not efficiency. Not like rational tectonic pursuing maximum commercial value of space, Irrational Tectonic doesn’t care about the commercial value of space, which is enclosed by itself, it’s more like a representation of architect’s ideal world. No skyscraper allows Irrational Tectonic because it would reduce the space but increase the difficulty of construction. UK Pavilion for Shanghai world expo 2010 is no model of “efficiency” because of its Irrational thick wall,…

    My friends and I went to the Deaf Nation Expo in Alameda County Fair Pleasanton, last October 10, Saturday. We lined up as the members are preparing to let us all in. I was surprised when a young teenager approached me and signed "asking where I got my print outs?" I did not answer right away for I was caught off guard. It feels like I was being test on, like it is an exam, I feel very nervous and shy, but in the end the girl was patience enough to repeat her sign until I understood it. I…

    What he did as a philosopher: He taught young village children during trading hours about not always what one tells you is true, and they don’t have to stick to the norms like a little farmer's boy could thrive and become a knight if we wanted and a girl could do more than be a mere housewife. As a citizen himself Expo had managed to please a few member of the royal families with his “stories” but not everyone liked the Idea.
