Licensed Home Care Agencies: An Annotated Bibliography
Graham, Judith. “In California, Intense Debate Over Home Care.” The New Old Age. The New York Times, 2013. Web. 6 September 2013. Graham addresses the debate which involves the licensing of home care agencies in the state of California. Unions and organizations that support the elderly take one stand to push for legislation that would license home care agencies and certify its workers. The home care agencies take the other stand in opposing this legislation by means of having to disclose names and the possibility of unaffordable and difficult obtainment of care. This information would be used to address both sides of the argument. It is helpful in not only taking one side of the debate, but both, so that a clear understanding may be presented by

As well, it addresses pro statements of the issue by the Aging and Long-Term Care Committee Chair Mariko Yamada.

...Gender Roles in the Workplace: Annotated Bibliography Karissa Roveda Oakland University Rochester, MI Adler, M. A. (1994). Male-Female power differences at work: A comparison of supervisor and policymakers. Sociological Inquiry, 64(1), 37-55. This article spoke of the positions of power between men and women, and how policymakers and supervisors distribute that power to men and women. In the work place, when considering for advancement, employers have undefined criteria such as personality characteristics and potential managerial qualities. These standards become the cause of inequality in authority and power at work place. Jobs that are available for women have low wages and also less authority. Similar research studies have shown similar points, in that inequality is found at the workplace because of such gender based characteristics. Even though women were shown to be more educated, they do not follow the same status. The researcher in this study used methodology to find these inequalities at the work place. The study consisted of four data points to test and used 531 women and 619 men for this data.

Journal of Obstetric, Gynecologic, & Neonatal Nursing, 40: 817–818. doi: 10.1111/j.1552-6909.2011.01300.x An official postion statement of the Association of Women’s Health, Obstetric & Neonatal Nursing, Retrieved February 15, 2013 at The article deals with the incarceration and shackling of pregnant women. The majority of time pregnant women aren’t shackled down unless the prison officials feel that they will harm themselves, or present themselves as a legitimate flight risk. Nine times out of ten when pregnant women enter the criminal justice system they are less likely to receive prenatal care, and are more likely to experience intimate partner violence, poor nutrition, chronic disease, infectious diseases, mental illness, and drug and alcohol abuse. These are all things that could put the fetus at risk when it comes to birth defects and many other potential damages to the child. The reason for shackling incarcerated pregnant women is to prevent them from harming correctional officers, and/or harming themselves. In the event there is an emergency, shackles may cause unnecessary delays in the administration of potentially lifesaving measures. In conclusion, it’s best that pregnant women are on their best behavior while incarcerated,......

...Desire’ Godfrey Ms. Kendall Eng 132.010 April 28, 2011 Annotated Bibliography McCubbin, I. Hamilton, Barbara B. Dahl, Philip J. Metres, JR., Edna J. Hunter, and John A. Plag. “Family Separation and Reunion: Families of Prisoners of War and Servicemen Missing in Action”. Washington, D.C.: U.S. Government Printing Office, 1975. Print. This book delves into the lives of children that have an absence of their fathers caused by the assignment of the military. These authors pinpoint some of the difficult obstructions these children have to face while these men are MIA (missing in action). They talk about the adjustment and the adapting to the prolonged and seemingly indefinite absence of a father, and how a relationship between a father and child changes over the long period of time until the veteran returns. Moreover, they collected data from 42 families of returned prisoners of the Vietnam War and attempted to identify a combination of factors that could explain the variability in the quality of the father-child relationship subsequent to the returning from the War. This information from this book will help convey emotional lives that these children have to endure. This book will strengthen my research by pointing out how children are affected when there is a nonattendance of one of the parents for a long period of time. Bowen, L. Gary, Dennis K. Orthner.

This book will appeal to any reader who wants to know about women gender, social change and religion. Women have been and still are an integral part of monastic life, but monastic scholars have tended to see them either as aberrant or as subsidiary to the main theme of male religious life. Schultz, D. (2010). Ethics Regulation Across Professions. Public Integrity, 12(2), 161-172. doi:10.2753/PIN1099-9922120204 Gifting, a private act of friendship and charity among individuals that has deep cross-cultural roots, is increasingly seen as a morally problematic practice in many professions.

Based upon a survey of more than twenty professional associations and fields of employment, this commentary examines the historical roots of gifting, why it poses an ethical problem, and how many organizations across the public, private, and nonprofit sectors are adopting policies to address this practice.

Four weeks of sprint interval training improves 5 km run performance. Journal of Strength & Conditioning Research. This recent study looks at the effect of sprint interval training for 5k running in untrained, healthy young adults. The study was a four week intervention that measured participant time (to run the 5k before and after the program) and VO2max to compare whether or not the sprint interval training had additional benefits when compared to that of the continuous endurance trained participants. What was concluded from the study was that the sprint interval training improved fitness and endurance. The use of this study will allow me to discuss the training improvements that interval training brings towards performance for both serious and recreational athletes. Considering that untrained adults were the subjects of this experiment, their quick ability to be able to run a 5k in four weeks will also be discussed in terms of how interval training can speed up the training process.

Resistance can be overt or covert. The differences in value congruence and organizational culture of small working groups, the individual and the organization as a whole must also be considered. In order for the change to be a success the leaders must study, analyze, and develop the plan around these conditions.
