Are they open on Thanksgiving Day 2021?



Are they open on Thanksgiving Day 2021?

There are only a few menu items at McDonald’s that we just want. It doesn’t matter what day it is, whether it’s a holiday, or even what time it is. Chicken nuggets? Yes please. A Big Mac with fries? Sure! An Oreo McFlurry? Well, that all depends on the ice machine.

But what happens when the holidays come and shops and restaurants close to let their employees celebrate the family? What about cravings for nuggets and chips?

The big question to ask, other than whether we can get extra honey mustard and ketchup, is whether McDonald’s is really open on Thanksgiving Day.

Will McDonald’s be open Thanksgiving Day 2021?

Technically the answer is yes, McDonald’s is open on Thanksgiving Day. However, there are a few things to note, such as: mashed up points out.

One of the things to watch out for are the opening times. Since about 95 percent of McDonald’s locations are franchises, their hours of operation will vary across the board. This means that your nearest restaurant may close earlier than you are used to.

It is also important to note that some locations may have to close due to staffing issues. So while most restaurants will be open, that doesn’t mean they will all be open.

If you want to start your day with an Egg McMuffin or end the day with a 10-piece nugget meal, it’s best to give them a call and confirm their opening times.

However, it seems like we’re lucky if we want our fast food cravings satisfied on Thanksgiving. And we are certainly not angry about that.

YouTube cancels year-end video ‘Rewind’ for 2020, says it’s been a different year




YouTube cancels year-end video 'Rewind' for 2020, says it's been a different year

Video streaming giant YouTube, owned by Google, has announced that it will not release a “Rewind” video for 2020, the company’s celebratory year-end video featuring top video creators. YouTube made the announcement in a statement, saying 2020 was a “different” year and it wouldn’t feel right to continue if it wasn’t. “We know that so much of the good that happened in 2020 was created by all of you. You’ve found ways to cheer people up, help them cope, and make them laugh. You really made a difficult year better,” YouTube said in a statement.

According to an IANS report, major creators have backed YouTube’s call to cancel its year-end video ‘Rewind’. However, the report said there were disagreements with some creators like JerryRigEverything saying that besides all the wrong things that have happened this year, there are several things to be positive about. “Since 2010, we have closed the year with Rewind: a look back at the most impactful creators, videos and trends of the year. Whether you love it — or you just remember 2018 — Rewind was always meant to celebrate you. Thank you for making a difference,” the tweeted statement from YouTube read.

In 2018, YouTube turned its year-end rundown into a short film with cameos from Will Smith, Marshmello, and more. However, the video became the most hated video of all time, despite a star-studded cast. Last year, YouTube went back to a montage of clips from YouTube’s most liked videos of the year.

City and county leaders said this is a major problem for the community. They said it will not only create jobs but could also help attract more large companies to East North Carolina.

“Watch what’s going on in East North Carolina,” said Mark Pope, senior vice president of North Carolina Global TransPark Economic Development. “Available Jobs and Opportunities.”

People are already working to get the new facility ready. It’s called a last mile facility.

“That large facility would send products and packages to this facility, and then it would go out from here and be distributed to residents, commercial properties,” Pope said.

The hub will bring new jobs to the area. Officials don’t know how many yet, but some job openings are already online.

“We would like all Kinstonians to be able to apply and accept the job here at our local Amazon hub,” said Mayor Don Hardy. “I think it’s a big problem and it’s going to mean a lot to our community.”

Hardy said this investment proves Kinston has a lot to offer.

“They see us growing,” he said. “They see that we are an asset and they see that we are a force to be reckoned with.”

This is not the first major investment in the region this year.

“We’ve announced more than 1,700 jobs, so a lot of capital investment … about $125 million,” Pope said. “Our region has been very lucky to attract businesses this year.”

Pope said with a name like Amazon coming to town, this won’t be the last big announcement.

“For a company like that to create jobs, a capital investment in the community is a lot,” he said. “People from out of state really notice, they say there’s staff, there’s education. That can attract other companies.”

Hardy said he doesn’t know when the facility will open. He and provincial officials will be talking to Amazon in the coming months to help with plans.

Wednesday 8 Dec: After a long time, Delhi has reported a significant shift in the General Air Quality Index (AQI), which has improved from ‘poor’ to ‘moderate’.

During the morning hours of Wednesday, the capital posted a total AQI of 180, and is expected to remain more or less the same for the rest of the day. AQIs between 201 and 300 are categorized as ‘poor’, while those in the range of 101 to 200 are considered ‘moderate’.

The early hours were foggy with minimum temperatures dropping to 10°C. Daytime mercury levels are expected to reach a maximum of 25°C.

Meanwhile, on the same day, the other major cities in India viz. Pune, Mumbai and Ahmedabad all registered their respective AQIs in the moderate category.

Meanwhile, several places in Delhi reported an occasional improvement in air quality by creeping towards the temperate range on Wednesday. These include North Campus DU, IGI Airport, Rohini, Lodhi Road and ITO.

On the other hand, Punjabi Bagh, Pusa, Shadipur, Mundka, Wazripur, Ashok Vihar, Mandir Marg, Dwarka Sector 8, Jahangirpuri, Chandni Chowk, RK Puram, Sirifort, Bawana and Sonia Vihar registered AQI in the ‘poor’ range .

AQI forecast for the rest of the week

According to the System of Air Quality Weather Forecasting and Research (SAFAR), moderate winds will keep the landlocked capital well-ventilated for the rest of the week, December 8-11.

VK Soni, head of the India Meteorological Department (IMD) Environment and Research Center, told the Times of India: “After the city got rain on Monday morning, the wind speed was good. Due to the sun, the mixing layer height is relatively higher, causing mixing of pollutants in the atmosphere. Better ventilation has caused the spread of pollutants.”

Despite favorable conditions, some deterioration in air quality is still expected with the AQI likely to rise to a ‘poor’ 235 on Thursday.

In addition, according to the IMD, a gradual drop in minimum temperatures of 2-4°C is also possible in most parts of northwestern India, including Delhi, over the next 4-5 days.

Air quality remains in the poor category from December 9-13 and then deteriorates marginally on December 14-15.
