“In the 5th century, Japan’s farmers, hunters, and warriors packed their lunches in sacks or boxes and brought them to the fields. The design is derived from a farmer’s seed box, and usually features multiple compartments for different dishes, such as rice, vegetables, and fish.
More recently the Bento Box has transformed to food art and seen a social status. Some parents spend 45 minutes preparing their child’s Bento Box for school.
The same precision and care that a parent puts into making their child’s bento box is now trending with photographing books. #BentoBooks photos are created to invoke the message, theme, and story of the book.

The term muckraker was used in the Progressive Era to characterize reform-minded American journalists who attacked established institutions and leaders as corrupt
The History of the Standard Oil Company is a 1904 book by journalist Ida Tarbell.
“Government is the great fiction through which everybody endeavors to live at the expense of everybody else” -Frederic Bastiat This quote is talking about communities falling apart due to government corruption. Laws are made unequal and to keep the poor behind. We are all always competing against one another.
The muckrakers provided detailed, accurate journalistic accounts of the political and economic corruption and social hardships caused by the power of big business in a rapidly industrializing United States
Muckrakers presented problems to the American public in such a way as to invoke moral outrage and prompt citizens to take action.
Muckrakers targeted many turn-of-the-century injustices brought on by the large increase of immigrants, the rapid growth of the cities, unregulated big business and the influence of political machines, as well as many other social problems.
Tarbell exposed unfair practices of the Standard Oil Company, leading to a U.S. Supreme Court decision to break its monopoly.
Muckrakers would do to great lengths to make sure their research is 100% credible. Many would work in the factories which they were investigating and would snoop on businesses. The journal represents all the information the muckrakers would collect and specific details to later expose the business.
