Soybean Carryout Key in USDA Friday Report

first_imgHome Indiana Agriculture News Soybean Carryout Key in USDA Friday Report SHARE Previous articleDonnelly Presses China on Biotech TraitsNext articleWarren County Corn and Bean Fields Look Great Andy Eubank SHARE Facebook Twitter Soybean Carryout Key in USDA Friday Report Facebook Twitter June report previewTom FritzThe market will be keeping one eye on the weather and the other on the supply and demand report that will be released by the USDA Friday. Tom Fritz with EFG in Chicago says the soybean carryout numbers will be a key.“You look at projected carry outs on soybeans, they’re much tighter than corn, whereas businesses being dialed in for our new crop beans, we cannot afford to lose any bushels. So, I think that is the biggest propelling issue in the soybean market.”Fritz says there are some in the trade who feel the situation in soybeans may be even tighter than current USDA numbers indicate.“I’ve got some folks trying to allude to the idea that old crop bean carry-out might be a hundred million bushels too high right now. Now that would mean we would have to see one tremendous rush of demand towards the end of the marketing season, but I am also hearing indications that Brazil is sold out of beans right now. So, I think that in turn is one reason why we have seen the last couple of days these USDA announcements. I am hearing the new crop announcements are where we transition from old crop to new crop.”As for market expectation for today’s report, “If we get the numbers that the traders expecting I think it’s going to viewed as ho hum, we already knew that. What’s the weather forecast?” By Andy Eubank – Jun 9, 2016 last_img read more

Low satisfaction pushes staff out of e-businesses

first_img Comments are closed. Previous Article Next Article A lack of job satisfaction and security is to blame for the haemorrhaging ofsenior staff from e-businesses, a report has found. A survey by online recruiters FirstPersonGlobal shows that employers in thevolatile e-economy are struggling to maintain company loyalty. Over 85 per cent of executives questioned said they would consider aposition with another firm, while nearly a third thought it was very likelythey would change jobs in the next 12 months. The research indicated that dissatisfaction over poor working conditions andbenefits were at the heart of the problem. Work-life balance issues, benefits and challenging roles held more appealthan financial rewards. Staff cited good relations with co-workers and a sense of company pride astwo important factors in determining their loyalty. Paul Smith, chief executive of FirstPersonGlobal, said, “It is theemployers, not the employees, who need to worry about job security. “For employers to hold on to staff, they need to focus on constructingbenefits packages that address not only salary demands, but benefits affectingwork-life balance, such as childcare and health club membership.” Over 1,500 senior executives from the consulting, computing, marketing,media and telecoms sectors were surveyed.

Position Descriptions of Christmas Past

first_imgPosition Descriptions of Christmas PastShared from missc on 19 Dec 2014 in Personnel Today Previous Article Next Article Read full article Are the multi-skilled, or the specialists among us, more future-proof & better equipped for organisational evolution?I believe there are two trains of thought on this. These days with organisations advocating agile or iterative processes, we have witnessed a shift in not just how we meet deadlines and time restraints but in our professional mentalities. Everything is quicker, processes more streamlined and we are always looking for ways to create new efficiencies as we all deal with ever changing goalposts on a day to day basis. With this we of course become more than just what our defined position descriptions would have meant 5 to 10 years ago and instead we must be broader skilled, dynamic, out-of-the-box problem solvers who have to turn our hands daily to tasks which historically wouldn’t have been ours.On the other hand, we have a growing trend of positions being broken up into several roles where in the past they may all have been taken care of by one position. An example of this could be the role of an internal recruiter. In years gone by, a recruiter would be responsible for the end to end process of finding candidates for any given role – engaging them, appropriately screening them, interviewing them, coordinating interviews with relevant hiring managers – and thereafter would also be responsible for “closing” or hiring. However these days, a large number of recruitment roles are broken up more distinctly into sourcing, recruiting and account managing.There is merit in both methods but I will be interested to see moving forward whether it is the specialist or the broader-skilled that demonstrates more staying power.center_img Comments are closed.

After the VCNO’s address, Sailors were afforded the opportunity to ask a few questions.“This is my first visit to Japan as vice chief of naval operations,” said Ferguson. “As the VCNO it’s important for me to visit our forward operating locations and bases around the world in order to see how our sailors are performing, our relationships with our allies and to listen to the concerns of the commanders and understand the issues that we can take back to Washington [D.C.] to help them.”During the all hands call, Ferguson also discussed the importance of NAF Atsugi regarding the upcoming partial move of Carrier Air Wing Five to Marine Corps Air Station Iwakuni, Japan, stating that the installation will still remain an integral part of the forward deployed naval force.“It’s important that naval forces are where it matters, when it matters, so [NAF Atsugi] being forward not only provides a stabilizing presence, but a ready response force,” he said. “It may have a different mix of aircraft and have a slightly smaller presence, but [NAF Atsugi] will still be important to us in the future.”During his visit, Ferguson also took a tour of the base and also viewed Unaccompanied Housing to view facilities available to Sailors assigned to the installation.From NAF Atsugi, Ferguson is scheduled to visit with Sailors at Commander, Fleet Activities Yokosuka aboard the forward-deployed aircraft carrier USS George Washington (CVN 73) and Fleet Activities Sasebo before returning to Washington D.C.[mappress]Press Release, August 28, 2013; Image: US Navy August 28, 2013 View post tag: air View post tag: Visit View post tag: Atsugi View post tag: Defence View post tag: facility View post tag: to View post tag: Naval View post tag: News by topic Back to overview,Home naval-today VCNO Pays Visit to Naval Air Facility Atsugi, Japan View post tag: Navy View post tag: Pays Training & Education View post tag: Defense View post tag: VCNO Share this articlelast_img read more
