From our discussion, we found that a lot of issues in this case. We will discuss and explain what the error and problem encountered. There are many issues of management and organisational behaviour such as: i. High turnover and absenteeism of staff. When absenteeism was particularly high on any given day, part-time employees were called to fill in. Of cause they all not familiar with the job, system, procedure, equipment and so on. When company hire new worker to work here, of cause company need to train and give full support to ensure new worker perform well. It is involve cost and waste time. ii. Low level of motivation Keeping employees motivated is an important element of not only getting the most out of your employees, but also in retaining your best employees. The best employees are always in high demand, and will change companies if they are not kept motivated at work. But unfortunately in this case study, most of their worker demotivated with various factor such as company policy and time management for personal and work lives. iii. Excessive error Too much of error will give bad effect to the company. It will effect to other person or other department and company also cannot consider with people that always make same mistake. Errors will make company always......

...introduction of contaminants into the natural environment that causes adverse change. Pollution can take the form of chemical substances or energy, such as noise, heat or light. Pollution also has different components call Pollutants. (Wikipedia 2012) A pollutant is substance or energy introduced into the environment that has undesired effects, or adversely affects the usefulness of a resource. A pollutant may cause long- or short-term damage by changing the growth rate of plant or animal species, or by interfering with human amenities, comfort, health, or property values. (Wikipedia 2012) There are also different kinds of pollutants like greenhouse gases, pesticides, endocrine disruptors, petroleum and heavy metals. Carbon dioxide and methane are two of the most important of these gases, called greenhouse gases because they trap heat in the earth's atmosphere. This is already causing severe problems around the world and the situation will only get worse. The rising temperatures will likely lead to more severe weather events, which cause shifts in natural communities, and probably lead to greater species extinction rates, among numerous other effects. Pesticides are a broad group of chemicals that enable us to live more comfortable lives by and large, but whose main purpose underlies the central problem with pesticide pollution. They are all poisons. A lot of these chemicals will wash into our rivers and streams and cause direct toxicity to fishes, and may work their way up......

Doctor’s test results reveal lowered levels of thyroid hormone and low levels of cortisone and testosterone but high growth hormone. Treatment is administered to remove fluid from knee. Shortly after Doctor visit, Eric breaks left hip. PROBLEM: What hormonal problem could be causing these symptoms? A: Hypopituitarism. Based on the symptoms the patient presented it appears there was a deficiency in FSH/LH due the decreased muscle mass (skinny), increase osteoporosis (bone fragility), ACTH deficiency due to the low cortisol in the adrenal glands which reveals symptoms of fatigue, weight loss, can have delayed puberty in children, affects in the immune system. CQ1: What hormonal problem could be causing these symptoms? A: Pituitary gland has problems. CQ2: Based on the diagram in Slide 10 (pituitary gland) choose the correct answer. A: The posterior pituitary probably collects hormones made by the hypothalamus, and the anterior pituitary probably makes hormones under the direction of the hypothalamus. ERIC: Upon test results, it appears a benign pituitary tumor has placed pressure on the pituitary gland and disrupted functions. TREATMENT: Irradiation to kill the pituitary and tumor associated with it. Post irradiation Eric......

Eric Birling

...Eric Birling What do you think is the importance of Eric and how does Priestley present him? How does he change throughout the play? At the start of the play we see Eric as a naïve alcoholic who seems to want to follow his father into his rich and successful business. We see Eric as immature and at the start of the play we see his anxiety, as if he knows that something will go wrong that night. As Eric and his family learn more about his shocking relationship with Eva, he seems to undergo a dramatic change in which he accepts responsibility for his vile treatment of Eva and breaks away from the capitalist limitations that his parents have set him. Towards the end of the play we see Eric agree with the inspector, who seems to be the righteous view of morality and also agree with Sheila who has undergone the most dramatic change and has accepted social responsibility forever. In order for us to recognise Eric’s change, his flaws first have to made abundant to the audience. Priestly obliges through the stage directions he set for Eric. He describes him as “not quite at ease” showing that he could be uncomfortable at the prospect of an evening with his mother and father or more likely that he is worried, that events with regards to Eva will be revealed. Priestly also describes Eric as “half shy, half assertive”. This seemingly duel personality, could highlight Eric’s drinking problems, which through drunkenness, has left him unsure of himself and without a set personality.......

...The Berlin Wall (1961–1989) ------------------------------------------------- (1) The reasons the Soviets and the East German government had for erecting the Berlin Wall. Many Germans fled East Germany after the Soviet Union got their hands on them and tried to make it a communist country. It was so easy for people to cross the East and West Germany border and the communists in East Germany did not want their people to keep leaving so they erected the Berlin Wall to keep in the Germans and practice communism even if it meant separating families and friends. (2) Discuss the Wall’s elaborate fortifications. East Germany tried to put up the Berlin Wall as quickly as possible so that the West would not realize what’s happening until it’s already finished being built. The wall was armed with barbed wires, a hundred tanks, and approximately ten thousand East Germany soldiers guarding it. (3) Relate what happened when the East Germans tried to escape across the wall. When East Germans tried to escape the Berlin Wall to go over to the West, they often got caught or died trying to escape. Those who were caught got interrogated thoroughly. Many people tried to swim to West Germany but usually die trying. Others tried to jump the border and was met with instant death when they hit the concrete floor. (4) Analyze and explain how the construction of the Wall raised Cold War tensions between the United States and the Soviet Union. The Berlin Wall made communists......

...DUCOR CHEMICALS In the fall of 2000, Ducor Chemical received a research and development contract from one of their most important clients. The client had awarded Ducor with a twelve-month, sole-source contract for the R&D effort to create a new chemical that the client required for one of its future products. If Ducor could develop the product, the long-term production contract that would follow could generate significant profits over the next several years. In addition to various lab personnel who would be used as needed, the contract mandated that a senior chemist be assigned for the duration of the project. In the past, the senior chemists had been used mainly for internal rather than external customer projects. This would be the first time a senior chemist had been assigned to this client. With only four senior chemists on staff, the project manager expected the resource negotiation process with the lab manager to be an easy undertaking. Project manager: "I understand you've already looked over the technical requirements, so you should understand the necessity for assigning your best senior scientist." Lab manager: "All of my senior scientists are good. Any one of them can do the job. Based upon the timing of your project, I have decided to assign John Thornton." 238 DUCOR CHEMICAL Project manager: "Just my luck! You assigned the only one I cannot work with effectively.

Part 1
1. What hormonal problem could be causing these symptoms?

His pituitary gland isn’t working because it has a tumor on it causing his problems like bad coordination, being very tall and skinny (6ft, 150lbs, and size 13 shoe), right knee swelled, ulcerated sores on lower left leg that wouldn’t heal, often was sick and didn’t feel good, and having large hands and feet.

2. Why would joint damage be associated with rapid growth and low testosterone levels?

Joint damage would be associated because of the growing pain that a person has when having a growth spurt. His bones and ligaments were stretching quicker than a normal person would stretch and his joints can’t keep up with it causing the joint pain. Low testosterone levels can’t ossify the plates. ACTH controls cortisol, so if he doesn’t have it, it will affect how much is released.

Part 2

1. Should Dr. Kidd tell Eric that he is probably sterile? Why would he be sterile?

Dr. Kidd should tell Eric that there is a possibility of him being sterile and that they can run tests to confirm if he is correct or not. Eric would be sterile because if he does have a pituitary problem his FSH (makes sperm) and LH (develops sperm) levels wouldn’t making him sterile.

2. Is there anything that they could try to do to stimulate spermatogenesis?

Why is the absence of facial hair important? They could give Eric hormones (FSH & LH) to try to help stimulate spermatogenesis. The lack of facial hair tells doctors that Eric is not producing gluttonizing hormones.

Part 3

1. Why was he growing facial hair?

Eric began growing facial hair because he was given a hormone called human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG) for two years in an attempt to produce sperm and his secondary sex hormones.

2. Why did he need jaw surgery?

Eric needed jaw surgery because his jaw had been hurting, especially the joint on the left side. The dentist thought he had TMJ (temporal mandibular joint dysfunction) and referred him to a dental surgeon who proceeded with the surgery. His upper jaw stops growing and his lower jaw keeps growing. They broke the lower jaw because they are trying to preserve his trigeminal nerve. The surgery did get rid of the frequent headaches that Eric was having.

Part 4

1. Why are his kidneys so active at night?

His kidneys were so active at night because his antidiuretic levels (found in the posterior pituitary) were damaged causing him to release water all the time instead of having the kidneys keep some. The hypothalamus was releasing ADH when he was younger, but as he got older it stopped releasing it.

2. It also turns out he has unpredictable shock responses, so that a small cut needing three stiches left him pale and in shock while breaking his left wrist in 15 places did not. What hormone could be involved?

The hormone that might be involved would be ACTH. The anterior pituitary controls the adrenal gland and it doesn’t have epinephrine and norepinephrine for stress response- no check and balance system.

3. If the pituitary is so important, and if Eric id not getting replacements of hormones the pituitary makes (except for ADH), why isn’t he dead?

The hypothalamus controls the regulation of the pituitary glands hormones. The hypothalamus is compensating because it is releasing some of the hormones into the bloodstream.
