Since Last We Spoke, 11-26-12

Taking time off leaves a good chunk of time for reading, especially on road trips. In my household, my partner likes to do the distance driving, which leaves me the job of reader. Once I have finished reading aloud the day’s newspaper (or at least the interesting-to-me parts of the Washington Post or NY Times), it’s on to all manner of electronic articles (thank you wifi and consistently good cell service between DC and Cleveland). Here’s some of what caught my attention since last we spoke:

The Employee-Motivation Checklist (Fast Company)

AAP Recommends Emergency Contraception Be Available to Teens (AAP) {read the actual policy statement here}

Research like we give a damn: What “peer” researchers have to teach professionals (Homeless Hub)

Promoting Effective Criminal Investigations of Campus Sex Crimes [PDF] (OVC) Lots of good links in this publication

Understanding Clinical Practice Guidelines: A Video Series Primer (Health Council of Canada)

Give And Take: How The Rule Of Reciprocation Binds Us (NPR)

The doctor will e-mail you now. And then see you later. (Washington Post)

Disabled parents face bias, loss of kids: report (Wall Street Journal)

November 25th marked the International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women, and kicked off the 16 Days of Activism Against Gender Violence.  To that end, a few links:
