Cage-free eggs are taking over. The share of hens in cage-free housing rose to 28% in 2020 from 4% in 2010, and it’s predicted to hit ~70% by 2026. The dramatic shift is a triumph for animal-welfare organizations that urged businesses to buy cage-free eggs. McDonald’s, which purchases 2 billion eggs annually, changed to cage free after “concluding it was desired by customers.”
“No War in Ukraine.”

The International Olympic Committee ruled that it would not take action, despite Rule 50 of the Olympic Charter prohibiting political propaganda. “This was a general call for peace. For the IOC the matter is closed,” indicated the organization.
