Bridges to Breakfast:

The Dude does not abide kids missing breakfast because they can’t make it to school in time.” – Politico

I had not idea Jeff Bridges was such a gritty champion of hunger issues in the USA. His latest venture is a push to have breakfast served at the beginning of class for students who can not make it to school before the bell. Schools seem reluctant because they fear for the class time it will take… But

report from Deloitte has found that if 70 percent of elementary had access to breakfast in the classroom, it could mean that 3.2 million more students would score higher on their standardized math tests and up to 4.8 million fewer school absences per year.

That should make up for the eggie interruption. I just hope Kellogg’s and Post Cereal don’t hope onboard.

Greenland and Icey Floating Farms:

“We had what seemed to us a massive resource on one hand, and a massive lack — no local produce — on the other,” Meriem Chabani

Iceland new farming method is a projected beauty. Full of icebergs and happy families apparently. I hope it comes true.
