1) The autor begins to explain the main factors which don’t boost the professional career of women. According to him, some factors could explain it as fewer studies, a fewer attempts to evolve and persistence of some sexism persons ; but the most important reason is the time dedicated to children. In always giving examples, the autor lets us know that even if you adopt the perfect organisation which allows you to optimize your time, it might be always difficult to handle both your personal and professional live.

Then, the columnist points out that employers pay more attention to the facetime on the firm, even if employees are twiddle their hands, than the achieved work.
Afterward, he informs us of differents measures taken by companies to improve this point of the firm culture as giving more flexibility to its employees but he doesn’t give more informations about it, however, is the most important to know.

Finally, we can observe the point of view of the autor. In the two last paragraphes, he reminds us that some employments enquired hard and heavy working conditions, in consequence a very strong state of mind. He also shows us that very few women succeed to.

2) To enforce quotas of female workers in companies should increase the rate of women workers only if it concerns strategic and high-level professional jobs such as member of executive committees, senior managerial jobs or chief-executive officers.

The most important regarding this issue is the way to improve flexibility of schedules and workload of people who have a dependent family.

Initially, managers, who mainly pay attention to the bottom line, have to trust its staff regarding its way to complete and finish the work.

The Female Triad

...eating a healthy diet to achieve a healthy fitness level. When you perform resistance training you cause stress on the muscles and bone tissue. In order to repair your muscles and bones tissue the body depends on rest and nutrients attained from a healthy diet. If you do not get sufficient rest or nutrients then muscle and bones cannot repair themselves or get stronger. Not allowing your muscles and bones to recover makes you more prone to chronic injuries and can result in the triad for women. Early detection is important in preventing triad in women. This can be accomplished by educating athletes, coaches, and parents about the signs, symptoms and dangers of triad.

Effects of Laws on Employees Compensation

...overtime pay which should be one and one and half that of regular rates. For all non agricultural organization it restricts the hours that children who are under the age of 16 should work and also restricts employment of children under the age of 18 to certain jobs which may be dangerous. In case it is an agriculture based company, children under the age of 16 should not work during the school hours (Kearns, Borgen, & American Bar Association, 2010). In order for the company to follow this act, the following practices are being put into action. The organization is ensuring that every employee gets minimum wages as dictated by the minimum wages act. The minimum wages for an employee should be $7.25 per an hour as per the federal minimum wage requirements. No children under the age of 16 are allowed to work in the organization. The organization has managed to keep records of its employees which includes employees full name, address or zip code, sex, date of birth, hours worked per day, regular hourly rate, and total time worked either daily or weekly e.t.c (Kearns, Borgen, & American Bar Association, 2010). The age discrimination in employment acts ensures equal treatment of employees when it comes to firing, hiring or other actions against the employees. This act applies to only people who are 40 years or older. According to this act one should not harass someone based on their age. In this case harassment includes acts such as being offensive in your remarks......

Dansk - Tiggersken Fra Locarno

...usigelig møje kom på benene og gik tværs gennem rummet, som det var blevet hende befalet, men siden stønnende og sukkende sank ned bag ovnen og døde." Sætningerne er hypotaktisk opbygget, der er underordnede sætninger, da det underbygger sætning, som kommer inden. Novellen er yderst vel beskrevet, både de fysiske og emotionelle forhold, dette ses ved at Heinrich von Kleist bruger mange adjektiver, som fx; ”prægtig, smuk, forstyrret, bleg osv.” disse findes ned igennem hele teksten og gør at man som læser bedre kan forestille sig, hvordan der ser ud og hvad de forskellige karakterer i teksten tænker og føler. Ordvalget i novellen differerer, i starten er novellen ses mange positivt ladede ord, hvor alt er godt og smukt, der tales godt om borgen, men efter at det første møde med spøgelset finder sted ændres ordene til at være overordnet mere negativt ladede, hvor der nu snakkes om hvor skrækkeligt der er på slottet og hvilken sorg det bringer. Heinrich von Kleist bruget et atypisk sprog i forhold til novelle genren, da der i hans fortællingen ”Tiggersken fra Locarno” ikke findes mange sproglige virkemidler, som tilbageblik, metaforer, sarkasme eller andre sproglige virkemidler. Hans sprog er meget velovervejet og præcist. Én måde at fortolke Heinrich von Kleists novelle er at en kriminel handling ikke vil gå ustraffet hen og man vil på et tidspunkt blive straffet for sin gerning og denne straf vil tilpasse sig efter gerningen. I dette tilfælde slår marchesen tiggeren......

The one common objective that exists between the two is to protect the health, safety and wellbeing of the public and their healthcare needs. Through researching both entities, a Professional Nursing Mission Statement outlines the valuable characteristics of both establishments with specific roles that are entailed in each one and how they interpret the meaning of quality of care. A: Functional Differences A regulatory agency such as the Wisconsin Department of Safety and Professional Services assists with the regulation and upholding of licensure requirements for delivery of competent care within the nursing profession. Laws that are written and monitored evolve from actions within the legislative and executive branches to safeguard the public (NCSBN, 2015). Regulatory agencies also enforce the state nurse practice act along with overlooking exams that grant licenses and disciplining the license of those that engage in unsafe practice. Nurse education programs require approval from a regulatory agency and need to show that collaboration between students and the facility exist (Nursing World, 2012). A professional nursing......
