Corn on the cob
In Old English ‘korn’ meant “grain”. If the meaning of the word the world over is considered, ‘corn’ means the cereal crop which is most dominant in a region, referring to any number of grains including rye, oats or wheat. It was first called as “Indian corn” in the United States till the 1800s after which, the adjective was dropped. In other parts of the world, corn is called ‘maize’ hailing its roots from Spanish maiz via the Taino mahiz. First cultivated 9,000 years ago in southern Mexico and Central America, corn is a time-old grain of the New World. When coffee was not very affordable, miser Americans would use parched corn as a coffee substitute. Meanwhile, the ashes of burned corncobs were not wasted but used for leavening agents. It was after the American Revolution that the settlers moved to the Ohio River Valley where the Northerners brought the Northern Flint while the Southerners brought the Southern Dent which gave birth to the Corn Belt Dent, the cross produced from the two, an ancestor of all corn grown in the US today. According to a 2009 study, scientists have come up with a wild ancestor of corn, namely a subspecies of teosinte, Zea mays ssp. parviglumis, native to the Central Balsas watershed in southwestern Mexico. In simpler terms, this type of grass holds no resemblance to the corn we know today. Corn that is eaten today can be in the following forms – dent, flint, flour, popcorn or sweet. Farmers suggest peeling back the husk to check the kernels is against the proper ear-choosing etiquettes. Keep in mind when you hit the fields, and happy popping!


Gran Meliá Nacional Rio de Janeiro

Gran Meliá Nacional Rio de Janeiro

The Gran Meliá Nacional Rio was originally supposed to open ahead of last summer’s Olympics but it wasn’t until December that it debuted. Originally built in 1972 by the world renowned architect, Oscar Niemeyer, the beloved former Hotel Nacional was snapped up by the Spanish hotel chain and fully renovated, maintaining many original features. There are 413 rooms and suites with refined décor and views of the city and Sao Conrado Beach, two restaurants, three exclusive bars, a rooftop helipad, and extensive leisure, wellness and lifestyle facilities. The roof terrace offers 360 degree views of the city and the ocean – it’s the perfect vantage point for the southern hemisphere summer. The surrounding gardens were designed by Burle Marx, one of Niemeyer’s closest collaborators, and reports indicate that Meliá has invested US $130 million to bring the classic hotel to reformed glory.
