2. Can you think of other restrictions on clothing styles in developed countries, perhaps in schools? Private schools often enforce a uniform in the area where I live, for boys and girls alike. This means that every girl is given either a set of options or styles that are allowed to be worn at any time during the school year in school. Public schools without a uniform often have a dress code. My school for example prohibits skirts and shorts longer than finger length, and tank tops with straps thinner than three fingers wide. 3. Explain reasons for folk food preferences and taboos. Preferences: They are strongly affected by what is available to them in the environment. Cultural aspects such as religion, social, and ethnic membership also influence people's choices. Certain foods are eaten because their natural properties are perceived to enhance qualities considered desirable by the society. Taboos: According to many folk customs, everything in nature carries a signature, or distinctive characteristic, based on its appearance and natural properties. Consequently, people may desire or avoid certain foods in response to perceived beneficial or harmful natural traits. 4. Describe regional variations in popular food preferences. Popular food culture can display some regional variations. Popular food preferences and influenced more by cultural values than by environmental features. Like Coke and Pepsi, it could depend on politics, religion, advertisement, and what is produced, grown or imported locally. 5. What foods do you avoid? Do you avoid foods because of taboos or for other reasons? I avoid many foods such as products that contain gluten, eggs, nuts, and multiple other common allergens due to allergies. These have nothing to do with culture however.

    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.
