McDonalds Needs a New Ketchup Maker
Atlantic, by Abby Ohlheiser

Original Article

Posted By:MissMolly, 10/26/2013 5:39:58 AM

McDonalds will end its 40-year, ketchup-based relationship with Heinz, the company announced on Friday, because Heinz´s new CEO, Bernardo Hees, is the former CEO of Burger King. He´s also still on Burger King´s board of directors. Now McDonalds is currently looking for a new ketchup maker to partner with once it phases Heinz out of its stores. Heinz supplies ketchup to both McDonalds (for now!) and Burger King, and to Wendy’s and Chick-fil-A. For McDonalds, at least, it seems that the new Burger King connection at Heinz was one step too far. McDonalds has taken a stand on ketchup. Except most

This is not a big problem for McDonalds, all they have to do is make contact with ConAgra Foods, the makers of Hunts catchup, and a lot of store brand catchup´s. For the amount of catchup that McDonalds uses, ConAgra would probably formulate any taste in catchup that McDonalds wants just to get the business.

Washington -- Louisiana Democrat Sen. Mary Landrieu is in the middle of a storm. She is beset by well-funded forces on the right who sense the Gulf Coast Democrat´s vulnerability in trying to defend a Senate seat in a red state. On the left, she is trying to avoid being pulled down by the undertow of a president whose decline in approval ratings and controversial health care reform law might not play well with her state´s conservative sensibilities. She´s been buffeted by rough re-election fights before, and in previous successful bids for the state legislature, state treasurer´s office and eventually

A minister who dressed like Jesus and presided over virgins he called the "maidens" faces 59 counts of criminal sexual conduct involving underage girls he allegedly abused for years at a Minnesota religious camp. Fugitive Victor Arden Barnard, 52, is believed to be somewhere near Seattle or Tacoma, authorities said. A nationwide warrant has been issued for his arrest. The self-proclaimed "messiah" ran a compound in Minnesota´s northern Pine County, where ministered to a group of women and girls he referred to as "maidens."

WASHINGTON — The case of Farrah Fawcett’s missing portrait is getting a redo. The University of Texas is appealing a Los Angeles Superior Court jury verdict from December that an iconic portrait of the late actress by Andy Warhol belongs to her on-again off-again lover, actor Ryan O’Neal. Fawcett was 62 when she died of cancer in 2009 and she bequeathed all her artwork, including her own creations, to the University of Texas at Austin, where she studied art in the1960s. O’Neal, however, took the painting from her Wilshire Boulevard condo after she died and has maintained that it was always his _

President Barack Obama is attempting to lower the rate of “births” — and separately, pregnancies — among blacks and Latinos. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention lists reducing “births” as one of the top goals of Obama’s “Teen Pregnancy Prevention Initiative.” The language on the CDC’s website makes clear that the program seeks to reduce the rate of both pregnancies and “births” among minorities. Specifically, the CDC says the “purpose of this program is to demonstrate the effectiveness of innovative, multicomponent, communitywide initiatives in reducing rates of teen pregnancy and births in communities with the highest rates, with a focus on reaching

Tax day is here—and some people will pay more this year because of Obamacare. The law´s biggest tax provision—billions of dollars in tax credits to help people cover the cost of their premiums—is already in effect, but doesn´t affect the taxes due on Tuesday. A handful of smaller provisions, mostly affecting wealthy households, will show up for the first time in this year´s filing. Among this year´s changes: a 0.9 percent increase in Medicare taxes and a 3.8 percent surtax on investment income. Both are limited to high-income taxpayers, and both took effect for the first time in the tax season that

Casual marijuana use may come with some not-so-casual side effects. For the first time ever, researchers at Northwestern University have analyzed the relationship between casual use of marijuana and brain changes – and found that young adults who used cannabis just once or twice a week showed significant abnormalities in two important brain structures. The study’s findings, to be published Wednesday in the Journal of Neuroscience, are similar to those of past research linking chronic, long-term marijuana use with mental illness and changes in brain development. Dr. Hans Breiter, co-senior study author, said he was inspired to look at the effects of casual

Toddlers show racial bias when picking playmates, a study reveals. They also take account of how fairly others behave. Researchers tested the reaction of white 15-month-olds as toys were distributed. Two white adults divided the toys, one equally and the other unequally. Seventy per cent of the toddlers chose to play with the researcher who distributed the toys fairly. But in a second test, when one researcher favoured a white recipient over an Asian one, they picked the ‘fair’ researcher less often, the journal Frontiers in Psychology reports. And the babies are more likely to help those who share the same ethnicity, which is known as

How do you ensure that you won’t be ostracized, denounced, or fired if you are a media celebrity, captain of industry, or high public official? For some, sexist banter is certainly no problem. Stand-up comedian Bill Maher called Sarah Palin a c–t and a tw-t, but suffered no ill consequences. David Letterman joked on air that Sarah Palin’s 14-year-old daughter had had sex with Alex Rodriguez during a New York Yankees game. There was no downside to that either. President Obama tosses around “sweetie” as he wishes. No problem with that. No one believes Barack could be condescending to women.
