Finland's Government Has Equalized Parental Leave

Finland is the happiest country to live right now. Not because they have a beautiful landscape and serene climate, it’s because the country is being headed by the world’s youngest female Prime Minister, Sanna Marin. Seems very idealistic? Well, it is real and who would not want to live there. I must say that Finland’s PM is doing everything in its power to eliminate the gender biases in the country to make their citizen’s family life easier. The Finland government has just announced to offer equally paid parental leave. Awesome right? Both the parents would be getting a paid leave allowance of 164 days or roughly 6.6 months.

No, no this is not enough. We have something more for you. Even pregnant women are also entitled to one month of pregnancy paid leave and a single parent can avail the total allowance of both parents. Parents can also keep 69 days of that leave for later use.

When will this new law come into effect?

The new law will hopefully come into effect in 2021 as the policy is still being formulated. With the introduction of this law, it will make the life of the families easier and we also hope for the same to get something like this.

To this, Finland’s minister of social affairs and health Aino-Kaisa Pekonen said, “this change in policies was an “investment in the future of families and the wellbeing of families.”

She also said that this change would have huge impacts on the relationship parents share with their children early on in life. However, Pekonen also admitted that this alone is not enough to solve the everyday struggles families with young children face and that a family-friendly workplace is also needed.

What is the biggest takeaway of this law?

One of the biggest takeaways of this new law is that it places the responsibility of raising the child on the shoulders of both the parents equally. So, it will not be a burden on only one parent anymore which is the best part.

Speaking at the World Economic Forum meeting in Davos last month, Finland PM Sanna Marin said that, companies and states should do more to ensure that women were being treated fairly. She also focusses on gender equality which doesn’t happen by itself. She is the best PM a country can have.

What do we expect from our country India?

If we talk about our country, of course, there is a generous provision for maternity leave. But paternity leave is still something we need to think about. Here, in India, to be fathers get only two weeks of paid leave which is not going to work. I think that they should also be treated equally when it comes to leaves. As their presence is also very important.

So, what are your thoughts about Finland?

AutoZone How To Install Headlight Bulbs

AutoZone How To Install Headlight Bulbs

Keep your headlights working efficiently to stay safe on the road. A dim or burned-out light is easy to replace on your own with the right parts. Use a VIN lookup tool to find the best replacement bulbs that fit your make and model of vehicle.

Choose the Right Bulbs

First, be sure you have the correct replacement type. Your local auto parts store or online tools are available to help you find the right type. There are many other factors to consider when choosing a bulb type:

  • Color temperature
  • Throw distance
  • Bulb life
  • Brand
  • HID or LED lighting

Consider replacing both bulbs at once. This will ensure your headlights match and offer a clear field of vision as you drive.

Use Safety Gear

Once you’ve picked up your replacement bulbs, find a flat, dry surface to change your bulbs. Be sure you have plenty of lighting and that your vehicle is turned off before you begin. It’s a good idea to wear safety gloves and goggles, as you’ll be working inside your engine compartment. The exact tools you need vary, but you may need a ratchet or screwdriver.

Identify High and Low Beam Design

Some vehicles use the same bulb for high and low beams, while others have separate bulbs. Check your vehicle to see which is the case and be sure to pick up the correct replacement headlight bulbs for your burned-out headlight.

Access Your Headlight Assembly

Replacing your headlight requires a few steps, but these steps vary depending on your make and model of vehicle. It’s a good idea to talk to an auto parts expert or consult your owners manual to ensure you follow the correct steps.

Typically, you’ll need to remove the headlight assembly from the rear. This usually requires removing a few screws or nuts.  You may have to remove the wheel well covering or other casing to access the headlight assembly. In some cases, you’ll need to remove an air filter housing, coolant reservoir or even your battery.

Remove Your Old Bulb

Once you’ve gained access to your headlight assembly, the bulb is attached with a clip. Carefully remove the plug without damaging the bulb. You may need to gently leverage the clip with a tool, as it can sometimes be quite firm.

After removing the clip, the old bulb should pull directly out. Some have tabs that need to line up, so you may need to turn the bulb counterclockwise before removal. Be sure to properly dispose of your lightbulb.

Replace Your Headlight

Don’t touch new light bulbs with your bare hands. The natural oils on your hands can damage a bulb. If your work gloves have oil or grease from the process so far, it may be a good idea to swap them out for clean gloves. Place the new bulb into the socket and, if necessary, make a clockwise quarter turn.

Now it’s time to replace all the components and test out your new headlights. If the new bulb doesn’t work, you may have a wiring issue that caused your old bulb to fail. Search online or speak to your local auto parts store professionals to learn more about how to replace headlight bulb and other DIY maintenance tips.

We already know how China is going through a bad phase where everyone is getting infected through the spread of contagious Wuhan Coronavirus. It is showing no signs of stopping, even the medical authorities are trying their best so that they do not get affected by this virus. Since the disease is infectious, it is spreading like a bush in the fire. People are getting infected through human contact and also through the air, causing pneumonia-like symptoms that are getting detected late, which is, in turn, causing severe breathing issues and even death.

People are strongly advised to avoid any kind of human contact. Even they are advised not to travel and stay indoors in a self-administered quarantine.

Recently, the Chinese President, Xi Jinping visited a hospital in Beijing where he met people who are struggling with the Coronavirus. He was seen wearing a mask and asking people about their lives and wishing them good fortune and health during such difficult times.

While talking to the citizens, he mentioned that they must avoid themselves from shaking hands as our hands are the body parts that often go towards our mouth and nose which increases the chances of spreading the Coronavirus entering our body.

Spreading of the virus through close contact

A study conducted by Zhang N and Li Y from the Department of Mechanical Engineering, at the University of Hong Kong, has already proven that Influenza A virus has a 45 % chance of spreading through close-contact routes like hugs, handshakes, etc.

So amidst Coronavirus outbreak, if you had to meet someone, how would u greet them? Obviously, not by doing hugs or handshakes. Instead of these, you can try saying simple hello in which you will get infected by the virus.
