Fathers’ Day 2018: The shameful state of paid paternal leave worldwide — Quartz
The shameful state of paid paternal leave worldwide June 14, 2018 at 07:30AM https://ift.tt/2HLhiuI

Some 80 countries around the world will celebrate Father’s Day this month. And yet, in 92 countries, new dads don’t have access to adequate paid time off to bond with their newborn babies.

A new analysis released by the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) shows that “almost two-thirds of the world’s children under one year old—nearly 90 million—live in countries where their fathers are not entitled by law to a single day of paid paternity leave.” That’s despite the increasingly large body of science that tells us meaningful interactions between newborns and dads can contribute to the child’s health and socioemotional development.

Paternal leave doesn’t just benefit kids, it also benefits new moms (pdf), helping to give women time to recover from pregnancy and childbirth. It also increases female employment because moms can return to work earlier, which in turn reduces the family’s poverty risk. And dads who take care of their children early tend to stay more involved in their kids’ lives as they grow up.

Momentum is growing worldwide for national policies that would give new dads paid leave to bond with their babies—led by countries like Sweden, Norway, Finland, Denmark, and Iceland, which offer generous and flexible parental leave policies. But much work remains to be done, especially in the United States, which is home to nearly 4 million infants. In fact, the US is one of only eight countries, including Suriname and Papua New Guinea, without a federally-mandated paid maternity or paternity leave policy.

“We have to ask more of governments and more of employers if we’re going to give fathers and mothers the time and resources they need to nurture their children, particularly during the earliest years of a child’s life,” says UNICEF executive director Henrietta H. Fore.

The regional breakdown below shows the extent of the regional disparities in countries’ paternity or parental leave policies around the world:

Africa:New EU Biofuel Rules Not Enough to Help People or the Planet June 14, 2018 at 07:30AM https://ift.tt/2t8b4zM [Oxfam] Europeans may still be forced to buy biofuels made from food crops until 2030, as a result of the deal struck by EU member states and the European Parliament this morning on the Renewable Energy Directive (RED II). Oxfam warns that the directive, which allows member states to continue using such biofuels, could fuel climate change, food price spikes and land grabs. via AllAfrica News: External Relations https://ift.tt/2uvL0gJ

Devastated by ALS, trying to save others - The Washington Post
<<“Before, I felt that I needed to prove to others that I was good. Now I don’t give a s— about what people think. I do science because I love it and I’m good at it. It gives me purpose, and I feel that I can help people like me.” ALS destroys the nerve cells that control voluntary muscle movement. The disease is diagnosed in about 6,000 people in the United States every year. Most die within five years, usually of respiratory failure. The majority of cases, including Desikan’s, aren’t inherited, although genetic variations may make some people more susceptible to the disease. Desikan already has made big contributions to the understanding of ALS, Alzheimer’s and other afflictions. Colleagues say his skill at mining enormous data sets allows him to detect shared genetic risks for different diseases. He recently led a team that integrated genetic information into a score for predicting the age of onset of Alzheimer’s. The approach, which utilized information from more than 70,000 people, may help scientists design future clinical trials. And as part of the ALS genetics study, Desikan and Karch used data from more than 120,000 people to show that the disease is related to a rare disorder called frontotemporal dementia but not to Alzheimer’s or Parkinson’s.>> https://ift.tt/2sVDpdj

Opinion | The Obama-Trump Grand Strategy - The New York Times
In all things Trump is cruder than Obama, more willing to make subtext into text, less (or not even remotely) detail-oriented, more careless of diplomatic norms and dismissive of humanitarian concerns. But if the two men use different rhetoric and often favor different alliances, they have both pursued the same kind of bigger-picture strategy — seeking to extricate the United States from some of its multiplying commitments, to shift our post-Cold War position away from a Pax Americana model of peace-through-hegemony and toward an “offshore balancing” approach that makes deals with erstwhile enemies and makes more demands of longtime friends. “America First” and “leading from behind” may sound very different, but they can reflect similar impulses and produce similar results.

This shared vision tends to be unpopular with the expert class in Washington — what Rhodes famously called the foreign policy “blob,” and what Trump would no doubt describe more pungently — but more popular with domestic constituencies. (Obama’s Iran deal always polled reasonably well, and Trump’s summit with Kim is by far the most popular thing he’s done in his presidency.) And the fact that the pursuit of offshore balancing has been sustained across two quite different administrations suggests that in some form it’s here to stay, and that the expert class should recognize its merits.

That recognition doesn’t mean shrugging off the Pax Americana. But it means acknowledging that neither the “pay any price, bear any burden” Cold War model of American leadership nor the “unipolar moment” model from the late 1990s and 2000s fits current realities very well. It means recognizing that hawkish politicians of the center-left and center-right — a Hillary Clinton, a Jeb Bush, a Marco Rubio — tend to foster an unrealistic view of what the United States can accomplish through idealistic pronouncements and military might. And it means acknowledging that both Obama and Trump triumphed politically in part because they seemed more sensible than Clinton and her Republican counterparts about the need to make strategic choices, to cut losses and to cut deals.
