Adams, R. (2008, Mar/Apr). The comfort zone: How small can it be? Science & Spirit, 19(2), 32-35.
This article addresses how the increased interest in tiny homes is a result of increasing support from architects, economists, and activists who seek low-impact, environmentally-friendly means of living. The main focus of the article is to demonstrate how investing in and building tiny homes allows people to save money that they would normally be spending on larger homes. The article ultimately asks the reader to consider if she can do with less. Rachel Adams is an editor at Change magazine, a higher learning, scholarly source. Adams’ professional role mandates fact checking and knowledge of the topic, and the sources she draws on are credible, thereby making her article credible. This article will be used to discuss the credible research being done on the benefits of tiny homes, as well as the statistics as to how popular this type of home is becoming in the U.S., post-economic crash.
Bender, K. (2009, May/June). Little boxes: The new movement to seriously downsize our homes. E: The Environmental Magazine, 20(3), 34-39.
This article addresses the cultural environments surrounding a move toward building and owning tiny houses. The article looks at the U.S. culture’s emphasis on “big,” where small has a negative meaning. This push toward bigger-is-better is rooted in competition, where people buy more and more and bigger and bigger in order to appear better than others, according to Bender. The article considers how a move toward tiny houses signals a cultural shift, where people place more value on experiences and being eco-friendly over a desire for material things and a competitive model that depletes natural resources. It also offers some examples of the wide variety of tiny houses available on the market. Kristin Bender is a freelance writer who also owns a small home. Her article was written for E magazine, which is a 20-year running magazine on environmental issues and solutions. This source is relevant to the thesis statement because it provides examples of the benefits of building tiny homes, the reasons actual homeowners choose to build and live in tiny homes, and the increased market for tiny homes

Hello, My Thesis Statement is: Research Shows…Minimum wage should be increased in order to provide a livable income. With this increase the economy would be more stimulated. Job turnover rates may decline. Also, the need for government benefits would decrease.
I need 8 different sources for the annotated bibliography. The source can not be older than 20 years.
1. Provide a full, APA-formatted reference citation for the 8sources.
2. Provide an annotation (suggested length of 120 words) for each of the 8 sources by doing the following:
a. Summarize the information presented in the source.
b. Analyze the credibility of the author of the source or of the publication (e.g. journal, publisher, or website), if no author is present.
c. Analyze the relevance of the source to your chosen research topic.
3. Write each annotation in your own words, without the excessive use of direct quotation or extensive paraphrasing, for the 8 sources from.
