The Chinese people eat Zongzi during Dragon Boat Festival every year. Zongzi refers to the glutinous pyramid shaped rice that is wrapped in bamboo or reed leaves. During the festival, dragon boat races are held as a custom for commemorating Qu Yuan. In Qu Yuan hometown, there is a very popular legend that explains this custom.
The legend goes that after Qu Yuan had drowned himself in River Miluo, there was a man in his hometown who dreamt about him. In the dream, when Qu Yuan was drowning himself Nike Air Max Penny Por Mayor , he appeared very sad. Upon seeing him, all his fellow villagers gave him a salute. When returning their salute, he thanked his fellow villagers for the great love and esteem they had shown towards him. A villager noted that Qu Yuan was actually in poor healthy.
He thus asked him if he had consumed the rice that villagers dropped in the river. Qu Yuan thanked the villagers for their efforts but told them that aquatic animals, including the shrimps and fish had eaten all the rice they threw in the river. The villagers were very roily when they heard this and asked how they could ensure the fish didn’t eat the rice they had sent him.
After sighing, Qu Yuan asked the villagers to wrap the rice in pyramid shapes using bamboo or reed leaves. This way Nike Air Max Sequent Por Mayor , the aquatic animals would think that the rice is just waster chestnut which they wouldn’t eat. Doing according to what Qu Yuan had suggested to them, villagers dropped pyramid shaped rice during the next festival. However, Qu Yuan said that he had just eaten little of it and the fish ate the bigger share.
To solve the problem, Qu Yuan advised the villagers to add pictures of dragon to the food and beat drums as they rowed their boats. This way, the fish will think the food belongs to the king which they would not dare eat as commanded by the king.

SEOUL Nike Air Max 90 Hyperfuse Por Mayor , July 29 (Xinhua) -- South Korean President Moon Jae-in on Saturday ordered his aides to consult with U.S. counterparts about the deployment of four more mobile launchers of the U.S. Terminal High Altitude Area Defense (THAAD) after the Democratic People's Republic of Korea's (DPRK) test-launch of a ballistic missile.
The DPRK test-fired an unidentified missile, which the country described as an intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) called Hwasong-14, at 11:41 p.m. (1441 GMT) Friday from Jagang province, the central northernmost part of the DPRK, according to South Korea's Joint Chiefs of Staff (JCS).
The ballistic missile of an intercontinental range flew about 1 Nike Air Max 90 Ultra 2.0 Flyknit Por Mayor ,000 km and was lofted as high as around 3,700 km. It was an advanced Hwasong-14, which traveled 933 km at a maximum altitude of 2,802 km at the July 4 launch.
President Moon convened the national security council (NSC) meeting at the presidential Blue House right after the DPRK's missile launch was reported to him.
Attending the meeting were ministers of defense, foreign affairs and unification as well as presidential chief of staff Nike Air Max 90 Ultra SE Por Mayor , top presidential security advisor and intelligence agency chief.
During the meeting, Moon instructed his aides to consult with the U.S. side on strengthening South Korea-U.S. defense capability and reliable expanded deterrence capability, including the early installation of the remaining THAAD launchers, senior presidential press secretary Yoon Young-chan said.
On April 26, two mobile launchers and other elements of the U.S. missile shield were transported in the middle of night to the former golf course in Seongju county Air Max 90 Ultra 2.0 Essential Por Mayor , North Gyeongsang province.
One THAAD battery, which Seoul and Washington decided in July last year to deploy in southeast South Korea, is composed of six mobile launchers, 48 interceptors, the ANTPY-2 radar and the fire and control unit.
Four THAAD mobile launchers were reportedly delivered to a U.S. military base near the THAAD site.
Chung Eui-yong Nike Air Max 90 EZ Por Mayor , the top security adviser to President Moon, held a telephone conversation with his U.S. counterpart H.R. McMaster to discuss the early deployment of THAAD launchers and the mobilization of U.S. strategic military assets to South Korea.
A senior presidential official, who declined to be identified, told reporters that additional THAAD launchers would be "temporarily" deployed, saying the "general" environmental impact assessment would be conducted as planned.
The defense ministry announced its official plan Friday to conduct the general green audit on the THAAD site that was expected to take at least 12 months.
The ministry forecast the period could be shortened as a small-size green audit was already completed.
The presidential official said the final decision on whether to deploy the U.S. missile defense system in South Korea would be decided upon around the time when the green audit is completed.
South Korean Defense Minister Song Young-moo held an emergency press conference Nike Air Max 90 Negras Por Mayor , saying the governments of South Korea and the United States will mobilize strategic military assets to sternly respond to the DPRK provocation of missile launch.
Song said the South Korean military will rapidly consult with the U.S. side to temporarily deploy additional THAAD launchers for the U.S. Forces Korea (USFK), vowing to build South Korea's own defense capability against the DPRK's nuclear and missile threats at an earliest possible date.
The minister noted that the DPRK's ballistic missile launch was in a clear violation of UN Security Council resolutions and posed threat to security on the Korean Peninsula and peace in the world.
