In a way, yes. The trend of a no gluten diet is gaining popularity and many people are transferring to this lifestyle which creates a market for gluten free products. Yet, again this has nothing to do with culture. 7. Describe factors that influence patterns of folk housing. Environmental: Available resources influence building materials used on folk houses—e.g., stone, grass, sod, and skins. Religious: Some compass directions may be more important than others, houses may have sacred walls or corners. 8. Describe variations in time and space of housing in the United States. Popular customs vary more in time than in place. During the 1700 and 1800 when families moved west to settle on new land, they brought their customs westward and styles of building likewise. U.S. housing has roots in folk culture, but newer housing displays features of popular culture. Current houses show the influence of shapes, materials, detailing and other features. 9. What factors were considered in the arrangement of the bed in your bedroom? Factors considered in the placement of my bed were: my preference, my parents opinion, the placement according to the door and window. 10. Can you describe your house through reference to one of the past or present styles? I have a New England style home with a rectangular- looking exterior. There are two stories and one main hall upstairs and downstairs. However, my house also has a basement which is a little bit different than the traditional New England style. 11. Which elements of material culture do countries depict in campaigns to promote tourism? Countries usually depict their distinct food, clothes, language, music, architecture and customs to promote tourism.

    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.
