The Moral Order of Panera | Robin Kaiser-Schatzlein
Panera Cares failed to accomplish anything because the market is too chaotic and atomizing to address immediate, collective problems like hunger. The wrinkle that entrepreneurs like Shaich hate to admit is that the real engines of change already exist elsewhere: in the community and church groups that provide food for those who need it, and in government initiatives like the threadbare Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP). SNAP gives money directly to citizens to buy food for themselves, and studies routinely find that SNAP does exactly what it’s supposed to do: reduce food insecurity.

WWF shakes up the rules of Fortnite
Almost 250 million people who play the online video game Fortnite every day are being challenged by conservation charity WWF to survive the game – but with a twist.
The #NoBuildChallenge rule is simple: players are expected to proceed through the game without exploiting any of the usual natural resources which allow them to survive and increase their skills: this means no wood, no stone and no metal.
The idea is that the #NoBuildChallenge participants will understand a simple fact: staying alive is difficult without the planet’s natural resources. These players will be encouraged to share this message with their Fortnite networks all over the world.
