How American Homes Vary By the Year They Were Built

How American Homes Vary By the Year They Were Built

In conclusion, the 2009 American Housing Survey shows that homes being built today are bigger than those built in earlier decades. In addition, homes built today have almost more of everything – different types of rooms such as more bedrooms and bathrooms, more amenities such as washers and dryers, garbage disposals and fireplaces, and more safety features such as smoke and carbon monoxide detectors and sprinkler systems. But homes built in the 2000s are less likely to have neighborhood amenities such as proximity to public transportation and access to community amenities such as daycare and shuttle buses, though they are more likely to be near walking or jogging trails and have access to a community center or clubhouse.

House and Home across Cultures

House and Home across Cultures

A similar impression can be expected when people coming from cultures such as Slovenian, where “waste not, want not” is the motto (see Blake 2011, 100), are faced with the fact that American homes tend to have more bathrooms than European ones. Apparently, the American ideal is for each bedroom to have its own bathroom (see, for instance, Richmond 2009, 39): extra bathrooms can be seen as a status symbol and houses with a single bathroom are difficult to sell (see Schmich 2011). Perhaps surprisingly, given the British stress on privacy, homes in the UK do not normally have more than a single bathroom, with approximately 40% of dwellings having a second toilet and only 21% having a second shower or bathroom, compared to 63% and 51%, respectively, in the USA (department for Communities and Local Government 2010, 30; U.S. department of Housing and Urban development / U.S. Census Bureau 2013, 5). It is equally telling that the Statistical Office of the Republic of Slovenia does not collect information about the number of bathrooms per household unit (only whether there is at least one bathroom on the premises). The concept of house size is another one where the normative nature of lived everyday experience is easy to observe. When asked to compare the size of Slovenian homes to American ones, students taking English courses at the Faculty of Civil Engineering, University of Ljubljana, tend to describe Slovenian houses as “average” – a notion that in this case makes more sense in comparisons within than across countries – or “just right”, and members of a particular culture will tend to rationalize their preferences by producing a variety of arguments such as cosiness, intimacy, effort taken to

support. If the CLT was concentrated on local strategic priorities it would often have a service level agreement with a housing association for the day to day management (Holy Island), or lease the land to them as in the case at Worth CPT. Similar partnerships can also be established with the umbrella bodies. Indeed, Foundation East offers a service where they hold the land within their institution on behalf of the community. This could be useful for new initiatives where the land is available before the community group is fully formed. It could also be beneficial in locations where there is a lack of local capacity. In most cases the rental housing allocation policies arose out of local planning conditions as part of the S106 approvals, or were developed in partnership with the local authority. In some cases, such as Holy Island, this was managed by the housing association partner as a condition of the HCA support. By contrast Holsworthy CPT agreed theirs with Torridge district council and the priorities were local connection through employment, residence and family. Many of the other CLTs had similar clauses though Buckland Newton CPT included a clause on education alongside employment. In nearly all cases the CLT decided its geographic coverage and this was incorporated within the allocation policy. In terms of for sale stock most sold part of the homes at percentage of open market value, including a pre-emption clause to re-buy when the homeowner comes to sale; while some allowed shared equity stair-casing (High Bickington & Holsworthy CPTs).

What are homes made of? Building materials, DIY and the homeyness of homes

Homeowner 23 was similar to first-time buyers interviewed by Mackay et al (2007) who were working on older ‘doer uppers’ as part of a longer term plan to move up the housing ladder (see also Perkins and Thorns 2001 on the importance of housing as an investment in New Zealand). In contrast to the UK, where older homes ‘with character’ command a premium in the market compared to newer houses that might need less work, in New Zealand, older weatherboard houses which are easiest to work on, are also the dwellings which are cheapest and most easily available to first time buyers and others with limited budgets (Mackay et al 2007) meaning that the homes which need most attention are owned by people least able to pay professionals to work on them. Whereas Mackay et al (2007) found that their interviewees cited financial reasons as the foremost reason why they undertook DIY projects, the participants in my research were much more likely to emphasise the satisfaction they gained from working on the homes themselves.

BUILDING BRIGHT FUTURES INDEX OF ARIZONA S EARLY CHILDHOOD OPPORTUNITIES

In addition to early care, it is important that women receive adequate prenatal care throughout their pregnancy, in order to monitor their health and provide them with information for a healthy pregnancy and post-natal period. The American College of Obstetrics and Gynecology (ACOG) recommends at least 13 prenatal visits for a full-term pregnancy; seven visits or fewer prenatal care visits are typically considered an inadequate number. About one in five mothers statewide received fewer than nine prenatal visits (19%). In over half the counties in the state, more than 30 percent of new mothers had fewer than nine visits. In Greenlee and Santa Cruz counties, about half of mothers received fewer than nine prenatal visits.

Assessment Of Work Life Balance Of The Nursing Staffs: A Study Conducted In The Select Nursing Homes Of Barak Valley

Assessment Of Work Life Balance Of The Nursing Staffs: A Study Conducted In The Select Nursing Homes Of Barak Valley

Maintaining a work-life balance is about separating our personal and professional lives without allowing one to encroach upon the other. Both are important, neither should be neglected. Work life balance is an important aspect of a healthy work environment. Maintaining work life balance helps reduce stress and helps prevent burnout in the workplace. By creating a work environment that prioritizes work life balance, employers can save money and maintain a healthier more productive workforce. In the context, a deep probing into the functioning of the private nursing homes will bring forth to light the attitudes of the top management in ensuring that the staff of the nursing homes are able to strike the appropriate balance between their work life and their personal lives. The research takes into account only the nursing staffs and does not include the other staffs as it has been envisaged that the nurses undergo a greater pressure in the sense of maintaining both the domain of their lives with equanimity in concern. Most of the nurses have their own wards at their homes to look after. At the same time the task of the nurses in the smooth functioning of the nursing homes is imperative in projecting the right image of the nursing home in the mind of the people in the society. The dichotomy of the nurses in such a situation renders the nurses in leading a unhappy and unproductive lives both at their workplace as well as in their families. The prerogatives of the nurses compel them in not being sincere in at least one aspect of their lives. In considering the possibilities of such disparities to exist, the research attempts to dig deep into the issue. The research also considers the sensitivity associated with the functioning of a healthcare

enacted into law in every state but Louisiana. The UCC addresses both express and implied warranties and also sets forth consumer remedies for breach of warranty. Article 2 of the UCC defines goods as “all things (including specially manufactured goods) which are movable at the time of identification to the contract for sale.” Although Article 9 of the UCC makes more specific reference to the definition of goods to be inclusive of manufactured homes, the Article 2 definition appears to be broad enough to cover new manufactured homes, because they are movable when manufactured, even if they are or will be permanently placed upon land or titled as real property. If a home is attached to land and sold as part of the land, however, it is less likely to fall within the scope of Article 2 of the UCC. In such instances common law warranties may apply, or courts may look to the UCC by analogy. Regardless, it is the permanent attachment to the land rather than the home’s designation as real or personal property that will determine applicability.

Living Situations and Social Support in the Era of Extended Foster Care: A View from the U.S.

Living Situations and Social Support in the Era of Extended Foster Care: A View from the U.S.

Social support is important for promoting resiliency and decreasing the occurrence and impact of negative life events as foster youth transition to adulthood. However, the types and amount of support may vary by where youth are placed. Additionally, it is not known whether state policies that extend the foster care age limit beyond age 18 are associated with greater social support. This paper examines how types and sources of social support vary by youths’ foster care placement and foster care status at age 19. Data come from the CalYOUTH Study, a representative sample of youths in California foster care where 611 participants were interviewed at ages 17 and 19. Information was gathered on youths’ perceived adequacy of three types of social support (emotional, tangible, and advice/guidance) and their sources of support (family, peers, and professionals). Overall, a third or more of the particpants reported having inadequate support in each of the three support domains, which calls for renewed efforts to ensure that foster youth have adults they can rely on as they transition to adulthood regardless of where they happen to be living. After controlling for prior social support and other characteristics, youth in foster homes with relatives had less contact with professionals than did youth in other placements. In-care youth were more likely than out-of-care youth to have adequate advice and tangible support and to identify a professional as a support. These findings provide early support for the role of extended care in linking youth to important social resources.

Our design elements are also congruent with recom- mendations from the Nursing Home Quality Initiative launched in 2002 by the Centers for Medicare and Me- dicaid Services in the United Stated [58]. Lessons learned about implementing CQI in LTC included: form- ing partnerships with LTC stakeholders, engaging physi- cians and Medical Directors in the CQI process, teaching CQI principles to all LTC staff, facilitating the exchange of successful strategies and practical tips among LTC homes, and providing one-on-one assistance to LTC staff and administrators. Frequent contact with and involvement of the entire CQI team were identified as essential to overcoming problems stemming from high staff turnover and heavy workload demands on Administrators and Directors of Nursing [58]. ViDOS has taken this advice and worked closely with the entire PAC team, including Medical Directors, to develop and update action plans to improve bone health of LTC residents.
