and because of that we got a monumental piece of art that cost a massive amount of money because  there was an appreciation for the beauty that exists.  Name a comparable example of opulent architecture from today's society. A comparable modern day example of a similar type of opulence I found that was very interesting and  beautiful was the  Beijing National Stadium also known as the Birds Nest Arena in China. The Birds Nest Arena was designed specifically for the 2008 Olympic Games and has an outer steel frame circling a red seating area. This design looks just like a birds nest and it is crazy to see that something could be built like that. To build this stadium it cost around $423 million and only two people died that were reported. This design has been designed to last 100 years and to withstand a force eight magnitude earthquake.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
