Take up is as low as four per cent in France where a campaign to make paternity leave compulsory has kicked off. In Germany, men and women have equal rights to parental leave of 12 to 14 months on 65 per cent of the individual parent’s salary, she explained.“Ireland has one of the highest birth rates in Europe. Almost 64,000 babies were born here in 2016. The national birth rate in the first quarter of 2017 was 16,487 and the number of fathers who claimed paternity leave for the same period was 5,711.“We have to take a wider societal view and not think of rearing children as something best done in one’s spare time, preferably by women. Shared responsibility for new- born babies is the key to equality in the labour market – but the responsibility will always fall on women unless men play an active role in child rearing and actually take the paternity leave.“Depending on the ongoing take up, we should look at more incentives to encourage fathers to take paternity leave. I would be extremely reluctant to go down the road of making paternity leave mandatory, and propose that we use other incentives like “use it or lose it” to further increase the take up of paternity leave.Ms Clune said she was conscious that employers, particularly in small businesses, would fear the cost of temporarily losing men as well as women to these family friendly policies, but she urged them to change how they view family time off.“Employees being absent is a cost to business, especially a small one, but I think we’re going to have to accept that this is a cost of doing business just like holiday pay and sickness benefit”.

This past Saturday night, Pink Talking Fish played a hometown gig at Boston’s Paradise Rock Club with a confirmed “PTF Is Bowie” theme. With a packed house awaiting the set in anticipation after a rocking set from opener Indobox, who played a full set tribute to LCD Soundsystem, the band began their first set with a tease of Phish‘s “David Bowie”. Instead of heading full blast into the song, after the drum intro the band took a left turn into Prince‘s “1999”, a nod to the icon who had passed away just two days prior. As PTF went into their proper setlist with “Fame”, the energy level never dipped throughout the rest of the night. The “Slippery People > Run Like Hell > Let’s Dance > Slippery People” was a particular highlight of the first set, along with the set-closing “Burning Down the House” with special guest vocalist Hayley Jane, who put on quite the performance with the Magnaterrestrial Dancers, whom she brought on stage with her.Second set was much of the same high energy that was on display during the first set, with a powerful “Heroes” with keyboardist Richard James taking the lead on vocals. PTF wasn’t done with the special guests, as they brought out Indobox’s Stephen Learson on both “Tweezer” and “Lazarus”. A mashup of “Wish You Were Here/Space Oddity” made things interesting as the band meandered back and forth between the Pink Floyd and Bowie tracks. “David Bowie” ended the second set, fittingly.For the “All The Young Dudes” and “Tweezer Reprise” encore, Eric Gould and his Pink Talking Fish bandmates brought out some extended PTF family, as members of the Indobox, the Magnaterrestrial Dancers, and several other joined in on the chorus to bring the night to a proper close.Check out full audio from the show below, as taped by Andy Murray:Setlist: Pink Talking Fish at the Paradise Rock Club, Boston, MA – 4/23/16Set One:01. crowd set 102.

Nineteen agrarian reform beneficiaries (ARBs) through individual titlesoccupied around 55 hectares of land in Barangay Felisa here – in the propertypreviously owned by Gilopez Kabayao on March 5. Municipal Agrarian Reform Program Officer (Marpo) Edwin Sanchez, wholed the distribution, urged the new landowners to always keep in mind thepayment of their taxes, among other obligations. Within 10 years from the issuance of the collective CLOAs, DAR shallretain the option to generate the individual certificate in the name of theARBs based on their request and the approved subdivision plan of thelandholding and supported by the deed of participation executed by allco-owners named in the collective CLOAs. The option to select a collective CLOA may be exercised by the ARBsunder Section 25 of Republic Act 6657, or the Comprehensive Agrarian Reform Lawof 1988. Some of the 19 agrarian reform beneficiaries receive certificate of land ownership awards to around 55 hectares of redocumented land in Barangay Felisa, Bacolod City on March 5.

Share Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest By Jon Scheve, Superior Feed Ingredients, LLCCorn and beans rallied last week because rain swept through the Midwest slowing harvest. In select areas where harvest is behind, processors are bidding up for grain. It’s unlikely these basis bumps will last long, but some lucky farmers who managed to harvest some grain early could benefit.The slow harvest progress may help corn from sliding all the way back to lows from two weeks ago. I doubt beans will be as lucky. There are just too many in the fields and as they get harvested it could be too much for the market to deal with. Collecting bean carryOn 8/30 the November to July bean spread was a 49-cent premium. With all of my bean sales hedged against November futures, I was concerned about the current low basis levels. Since I can store all of my 2018 harvested beans and I have all of my beans sold, I moved my sales forward to capture the 49-cent carry. I did this by buying back my November beans futures and immediately sold July bean futures for 49 cent higher.As always, as long as the crop is sold, the price level of the bean futures trades doesn’t matter. Only the spread value matters when collecting the carry because the sales are still in place. What does it cost to hold the beans in the bin that long?Since I could sell the beans immediately at harvest, there is a cost to hold grain and not pay down my operation note. That 49 cents enables me to collect 6.125 cents per month until summer when basis levels may be better (49 cents per 8 months of holding from November-July).Assuming a $7.50 per bushel cash value in southeast Nebraska this week and a 6% operating note, it costs me 3.75 cents per month to hold the grain in the bin. With the 6.125 cents carry premium, I’m actually making a guaranteed 2.375 cents per month on the carry to hold the beans (6.125 carry premium – 3.75 loan interest). That would mean I can guarantee myself 19 cents of actual profit to hold the beans until summer. What about basis risk?Basis could get worse if the crop is bigger than estimated and futures have a large rally and trade issues don’t improve. So, I still have basis risk. Another contributing factor is the upcoming South American growing year. While a crop failure may cause a futures price spike, it doesn’t guarantee a basis rally. How China, who consumes 60% of the world’s beans, would handle any bean shortages from South America during this trade war becomes a big factor. If the trade issues remain unresolved well past the election and China refuses to accept U.S. bean imports, basis values may go down further.That’s a lot of unknowns that are impossible to predict. While I know I have risk with the basis I’m going to instead look at historical trends for the basis in my area. Those trends support the notion that bean basis usually improves after harvest. If that happens, my bean profits will also increase. The importance of separating futures, market carry and basisCollecting market carry is one of the least risky ways to guarantee additional profits for my farm operation from storing grain. While I didn’t set the basis in the example above, I could have set basis in July for the same levels as current harvest delivery, which would have guaranteed me those 19 cents of profits. Historically, it’s been more advantageous to wait until further in the future to set the basis, so I made the decision to wait on setting a basis or even picking a location that I will sell cash beans to. That is why I continue to keep my sales in place using July futures.In hindsight I’m very glad I sold 100% of anticipated 2018 bean production last February when November futures were $10. With what I know today, that was a good decision. I’m also pleased I was able to add the additional 49 cents of market carry to my sale price too. At the time of the trade above that had been the highest carry I’ve seen in the bean market in the last 10 years.The example above illustrates why it’s so important to look at the futures price, market carry and basis separately within a grain marketing strategy. These factors move independently of each other, and if considered separately, it’s possible to maximize the potential opportunity within each one, offering the best farm operation profit potential. Jon grew up raising corn and soybeans on a farm near Beatrice, NE. Upon graduation from The University of Nebraska in Lincoln, he became a grain merchandiser and has been trading corn, soybeans and other grains for the last 18 years, building relationships with end-users in the process. After successfully marketing his father’s grain and getting his MBA, 10 years ago he started helping farmer clients market their grain based upon his principals of farmer education, reducing risk, understanding storage potential and using basis strategy to maximize individual farm operation profits. A big believer in farmer education of futures trading, Jon writes a weekly commentary to farmers interested in learning more and growing their farm operations.Trading of futures, options, swaps and other derivatives is risky and is not suitable for all persons.
