The traditional East Asian calendars divide a year into 24 solar terms. Mángzhòng, Bōshu, Mangjong, or Mang chủng is the ninth solar term. It begins when the Sun reaches the celestial longitude of 75° and ends when it reaches the longitude of 90°. It more often refers in particular to the day when the Sun is exactly at the celestial longitude of 75°. In the Gregorian calendar, it usually begins around June 5 (June 6 East Asia time) and ends around June 21.
Introduction of Grain in Ear (芒种)
“grain in ear” means the grains are mature. It happens around June 5 every year when the Sun reaches the celestial longitude of 75 degrees. During this period, crops like barley and wheat all get mature and are waiting to be harvested. In Chinese, “Grain in Ear” is called Mang Zhong. Mang means grains at the same time busy. It forecasts the farmer is getting back to the busy field work.
It is the busiest time to seed millet and the deadline for sowing activities. During this period, areas around the middle stream and downstream of the Yangtze River enter the rainy season. Sensing the wetness, the mantis comes out, the shrike starts to sing and the mockingbird stops tweet.
The arrival of Grain in Ear signifies the ripening of awny crops such as wheat and it is also a busy period for farmers. That can be seen from many farm sayings. One of the sayings is, “Getting busy with farm work in Grain in Ear,” prevailing in many provinces. Grain in Ear is especially critical for planting rice. There is a saying in Guizhou that goes, “If you don’t plant rice in Grain in Ear, planting will be in vain.”
Binge eating disorder (BED) is an eating disorder characterized by frequent and recurrent binge eating episodes with associated negative psychological and social problems, but without subsequent purging episodes (e.g. vomiting).
BED is a recently described condition, which was required to distinguish binge eating similar to that seen in bulimia nervosa but without characteristic purging. Individuals who are diagnosed with bulimia nervosa and binge eating disorder exhibit similar patterns of compulsive overeating, neurobiological features of dysfunctional cognitive control and food addiction, and biological and environmental risk factors. Indeed, some consider BED a milder version of bulimia, and that the conditions are on the same spectrum.Binge eating is one of the most prevalent eating disorders among adults, though there tends to be less media coverage and research about the disorder in comparison to anorexia nervosa and bulimia nervosa.
Nutrition Education is a set of learning experiences designed to assist in healthy eating choices and other nutrition-related behavior. It includes any combination of educational strategies, accompanied by environmental supports, designed to facilitate voluntary adoption of food choices and other food and nutrition-related behaviors conducive to health and well-being. Nutrition education is delivered through multiple venues and involves activities at the individual, community, and policy levels. Nutrition Education also critically looks at issues such as food security, food literacy, and food sustainability.
The Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics is the United States’ largest organization of food and nutrition professionals, and represents over 100,000 credentialed practitioners — registered dietitian nutritionists, dietetic technicians, registered, and other dietetics professionals holding undergraduate and advanced degrees in nutrition and dietetics. After nearly 100 years as the American Dietetic Association, the organization officially changed its name to the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics in 2012. The organization’s members are primarily registered dietitian nutritionists (RDNs) and nutrition and dietetic technicians, registered (NDTR) as well as many researchers, educators, students, nurses, physicians, pharmacists, clinical and community dietetics professionals, consultants and food service managers.The Academy has faced controversy regarding corporate influence related to its relationship with the food industry and funding from corporate groups such as McDonald’s, Coca-Cola, Mars, and others.

-Selena, have you ever seen the show on YouTube called “Hot Ones”? -No. -On the show — it’s a great show, it’s really funny — you eat spicy chicken wings that get hotter as you go, all while answering questions about yourself. -I’m going to regret this. -No, yeah, yeah, yeah. I think we should try it right now. -All right, let’s do it, yes. -Ladies and gentlemen, give it up for the host of “Hot Ones,” Sean Evans, right there! Thank you for being here. I’m a fan.
Please, thank you for this, and please take it easy on us. -All right. Well, thank you so much for having me. We’re doing “Hot Ones” live here. But don’t worry, there’s no reason to be nervous. If it gets too spicy for you, you can always hit the milk. But, Jimmy, I noticed, where’s your glass? No cup? -Oh, yeah. No, I don’t — Well, I do have a cup, but since it’s “The Tonight Show,” I don’t — we don’t mess around here. So can someone bring out my cup of milk? -Where’s his cup? -Yeah, this is, uh — That is the actual Stanley Cup right there. That is the actual — That is the real deal Stanley Cup. Thank you, Stanley. And it is filled with milk. -Filled with milk? -That was supposed to be filled with water. Okay, good. But it’s filled with milk just in case we need it. But, you’re saying you don’t really need it. Is that what you’re saying? -Well, we’re doing an abbreviated version of the show, and we’re going to start kind of mild with Los Calientes.
But I’m going to be honest with you guys, it’s a very steep ramp up. We very rapidly get to the last dab of hot sauce, more than 400 times hotter than a jalapeño. So with that in mind, are you ready to dig in? -Yeah. -Yeah, okay. So we just go with this one? -This one, right? No? -I think you’re at the end of the paddle. And then we’ll all — -That looks way hotter, though.
-You have pieces of pepper and stuff hanging in there. I’ve seen the show, you should eat the whole thing? -If you’re down to commit. -Oh, yeah. I’m down. -These are good. -Okay, mild. That’s good. You can handle spicy? You can do that? -It’s not bad. -All right, Jimmy, my first question is for you, because as I understand it, a few years ago, you did a segment called “Cooler Heads” with James Franco. And there was this gag where they were supposed to take a bucket of fake Buffalo sauce and dump it over your head. But because of a production mix up, it ended up being real hot sauce? -Yes. Very real. -Really? -Oh, my gosh, it was unbelievable. I don’t know — That person is no longer working at the show. He dumped real Buffalo wing sauce all over my head and we finished the thing, and I’m like, “That was great!” And then I just started feeling a tingling on my face and on my back, it went down the back of my shirt.
And my whole face was kind of scarred from cayenne pepper. And I took a shower in milk. -It’s always a professional liability when you are working with extremely hot sauce. I know that better than anyone. Are you guys ready to move on here to the Wiltshire Chilli Farm sauce, featuring Trinidad Scorpion? For many years, the hottest pepper in the world? -Oh, great. -Trinidad Scorpion. ♪♪ Okay, that’s something. That’s something there. I’m feeling something. I feel something. -It’s actually not bad. -Really? -Selena’s rocking it. -Really? -Make some noise for Selena. -Really? You’re not freaking out? -Unh-unh. -My tongue — something is happening. -All right, Selena, this question is for you. From eating pizza crust and fried pickles, your food preferences very much bear the mark of somebody who does not apologize for what she likes. So with that in mind, can you explain the enduring allure of dining out at Hooters? -Well, initially it was to — -You can just get right to the end of the story. -Okay. -Whoo-hoo! Oh, God! Trinidad Scorpion. Are you serious? -Initially, it was because my dad wanted to hit on hot girls.
-Ah. -but then, I just — I don’t know — I enjoy the fried pickles, the shrimp, the butter. -Uh, yeah, that’s good. -It’s good. -Great menu. Great menu. -Could not have said it better myself. All right. -Oh, no. -Right? Are you feeling this? -I think I am now. -Now you’re feeling it. -Well, for people who watch “Hot Ones,” this is the moment they’ve been waiting for. This next wing is Da’ Bomb Beyond Insanity It is a ride. -Wha– -Selena, you’re awesome, cheers. -Cheers. ♪♪ -Sizing it up. ♪♪ -You’re crying. You’re crying. Oh, my God. -What the hell? -So this sauce is just all about survival right now. We’re just trying to survive this segment.
On our show we have a recurring segment called “Explain That ‘Gram,” where we have our guests explain their Instagram pictures. – -So can we put it up? Do you remember this selfie, and what the heck is in your teeth? -I don’t remember anything right now. -You were — what was it –? -This is horrible. -Aah! What was in it? Gum? Do I have to finish all of this? No disrespect, right? -It was gum! It was gum! -Oh, my gosh.
Okay. I think it was gum or lipstick or something. Oh, my God. -From four years ago, what a memory. What a memory. All right, you probably wonder why I’m shaking up this bottle. This is the last dab. We call it the last dab because it’s tradition to put a little extra on the last wing. You don’t have to if you don’t want to. -Oh, my God. ♪♪ My nose is running. ♪♪ All right. I got you. Oh. Oh, gosh. Ooh! Oh. All right. -All right. Bottoms up. ♪♪ -All right, you guys have had… -I hate it! -…so many iconic moments on “The Tonight Show” together. But now it’s time to put another chapter in the history books. We’ll do a name that impression game.
Jimmy, all you have to do is ad lib three impressions. And, Selena, all you have to do is try to guess the impression. – Ugh, I just want to say who I’m doing. Uh…my gosh. Geez, like, Sandy, I swear to God, I can’t believe this. I can’t even do an impression. It’s killing me. Just say John Travolta. -John Travolta. -John Travolta. – Oh, my God. You’re crying, just please say Pee-Wee Herman. -How is that Pee-Wee Herman? -Look at you crying. Just one more. -Why do you do this to people? -We’re stuck here together. -You’re an evil, evil man. You’re a sick, evil man. And how are you not crying? Wait, you haven’t eaten your wings! Oh, my gosh. Last one. I haven’t even touched it yet. Oh, my gosh. Hey, hey. There’s nothing in that. -What are you doing?! -Adam Sandler. -Thank you, say Adam Sandler. Just say Adam Sandler. -It is Adam Sandler! Oh, my gosh. Does that even help? Ugh! Can you just do the outro for me? I can’t even talk. -Yes.
Hey, don’t go anywhere. “The Tonight Show” will be right back with more Selena Gomez. Don’t go anywhere. ♪♪ .
