  • McDonald's begins first day of rationing French fries
    McDonald’s Japan has embarked on the emergency measure of only offering small-sized french fries to customers as a protracted labor dispute at US West Coast ports has contributed to long delays in imports. The fast-food chain said it was importing more than 1,000 tons of frozen fries by air, which began arriving last Monday, and had begun routing another 1,600 tons through ports on the US East Coast, which should begin arriving in late January. Those steps alone, however, are not sufficient to prevent a shortage. “Unfortunately, without this sales restriction step, we would run the danger of running out of fries at some of our stores around the end of the year or beginning of the new year,” said McDonald’s Japan spokeswoman Kokoro Toyama.
  • This Day in History: France formally recognizes the United States, Dec 17, 1777
    On this day in 1777, the French foreign minister, Charles Gravier, count of Vergennes, officially acknowledges the United States as an independent nation. News of the Continental Army's overwhelming victory against the British General John Burgoyne at Saratoga gave Benjamin Franklin new leverage in his efforts to rally French support for the American rebels. Although the victory occurred in October, news did not reach France until December 4th. Franklin had quickly mustered French support upon his arrival in December 1776. France's humiliating loss of North America to the British in the Seven Years' War made the French eager to see an American victory. However, the French king was reluctant to back the rebels openly. Instead, in May 1776, Louis XVI sent unofficial aid to the Continental forces and the playwright Pierre-Augustin Caron de Beaumarchais helped Franklin organize private assistance for the American cause. It took the impressive and long-awaited victory at Saratoga to convince Louis that the American rebels had some hope of defeating the British empire. His enthusiasm for the victory paired with the foreign minister's concern that the loss of Philadelphia to the British would lead Congress to surrender, gave Franklin two influential allies with two powerful--if opposing--reasons for officially backing the American cause. A formal treaty of alliance followed on February 6, 1778.
