This week I learned about three types of literature called novels, short stories, and novellas. All three have their pros and cons, and each is a different category of story.

These long books are sometimes complicated and hard to read … Continue reading E7 L55 Review – Short stories, Novels, and Novellas

It collapsed for many reasons – from invaders to the immoral culture Romans obtained in its later years. The first reason it fell apart was that the empire was simply … Continue reading H6 W34 Review – The Fall of the Roman Empire & Why
In the past few weeks I have learned about loans and their benefits for both the saver and the borrower and the negative qualities of loans. There was also the major difference in the type of loan as well, because the type of loan matters as well as the rate, and sometimes the rate even depends on the type of loan. Opportunity cost is one … Continue reading PF W10 – “Why are loan interest rates different?”
