Write a defect reaction describing the formation of Schottky defects in UO2. 

Questions about UO2

(i) Write a defect reaction describing the formation of Schottky defects in UO2.

(ii) Write a defect reaction describing the formation of anti-Frenkel defects in UO2.

(iii) For UO2, the Schottky defect formation energy is 6.4 eV and the anti-Frenkel defect formation energy is 3.0 eV. Calculate concentration of each defect at 1600 °C. Also, assuming that you do not know both energy values, explain how you would experimentally go and determine which disorder dominates in UO2 at 1600 °C.

(iv) UO2 can exist as a single-phase material at a relatively wide range of compositions between UO1.61 and UO2.25. Considering your answer in (iii), write one defect reaction to describe the reduction of UO2 to an oxygen deficient composition

An atrial “blood gas test” was performed to measure oxygen levels.  Explain why the blood was taken from an artery and not a vein.

Raymond Harrison, a 64 year old male, was admitted to the hospital with fever (101.8 F), shaking chills, a nonproductive cough, and chest pains.  A chest X-ray revealed extensive accumulation of fluid in both lungs.  The patient had mild hypertension (high blood pressure) of 150/90 (normal would be 120/80) and a smoking history of 275 packs per year. The patient was cyanotic (looked blue) and in respiratory distress.  The patient’s heart rate was elevated at 100 beats per min (normal would be 60-80 ppm).

An arterial blood gas test was performed, and the oxygen saturation of the atrial blood was 72% (normal would be 90-100%).  The blood test also revealed an elevated white blood cell count.  Initial treatment consisted of antibiotics and bronchodilators.

  1. An atrial “blood gas test” was performed to measure oxygen levels.  Explain why the blood was taken from an artery and not a vein.
  2. In the blood gas test, the oxygen measurement is reported as saturation.  How is the oxygen carried in the blood, and what exactly is being saturated with oxygen.
  3. Why does this patient have low oxygen saturation? What is preventing him from having saturation in the normal range?
  4. How does the abnormal oxygen saturation value relate to the patient’s cyanotic (blue) appearance?
  5. How does the abnormal oxygen saturation value related to the patient’s elevated heart rate?

Latent or persistent infections occur when viruses form proviruses, but there is one other way latent infections occur. What happens in those cases?

1) During a lytic cycle, which genes are expressed (transcribed and translated)?

Group answers:

All genes needed for viral replication.

Only genes needed by the host cell to defend itself against viruses will be expressed.

Both genes needed for viral replication and host cell genes are expressed.

(The only genes that are expressed are those for viral spikes and capsids wasn’t correct)

2)How do viruses hijack their host cells’ processes?

Group answers:

Viruses release toxins into the host cell in-between the penetration and biosynthesis phases.

The host cell’s DNA is cut into pieces by enzymes that the viral nucleic acid encodes.

The prophage acts as an enzyme and cuts up host cell DNA.

3)Latent or persistent infections occur when viruses form proviruses, but there is one other way latent infections occur. What happens in those cases?

Group answers:

Latency only occurs in viruses that infect plants.

Some latent viruses circulate in a patient’s bloodstream for years without attaching to or penetrating any host cells.

Some latent viruses remain inside the host cell nucleus as extrachromosomal, circular molecules of nucleic acid.

Using your HR planning expertise, forecast the demand of labour in the stores and the online environment over the next three years.

    1. Conduct research in order to get information to address the following questions (# 1 and 2) from page 102 of the course textbook. Ensure you use some of the qualitative and quantitative techniques described in the course textbook to help formulate your answers. Include at least two scholarly sources.
      1. Using your HR planning expertise, forecast the demand of labour in the stores and the online environment over the next three years.
      2. Assuming an annual 15 percent turnover level of in-store workers and a 30 percent turnover level of online-focussed employees, determine overall HR supply estimates over the next three years.
      3. Report the number of employees that will be surplus or shortages for each part of the business and for each year.
      4. Report the numbers of any employees that will need to be terminated each year and the services that should be provided for them.
      5. Additionally, provide some suggestions of activities you could engage in to determine supply details by internal vs. external candidates.
    1. You are to gather the information and write a business report which documents the results of your research above and presents it in a logical manner for senior management of the franchise.
      1. Your report must be concise (Maximum of 2000 words double spaced, 12-point font excluding cover page and references page).
      2. It must be well-written, but in lay terms so anyone can fully understand your reasoning. Follow APA format and include a proper introduction that clearly outlines the purpose and flow of the essay, and a strong conclusion are important elements.

You must also provide appropriate academic references (minimum 2) to support your conclusions or recommendations to the owner. They should be vetted journal articles and company prospectus information rather than Internet sources.

Remember, your objective is to provide an analysis on the labour forecast and turnover for the franchise owner, not simply to answer a series of questions. The questions are to help you focus your research. Your overall grade will reflect the strength of your analysis.

Discuss what should not be done in the interviews, and give examples of five discriminatory questions that must be avoided; explain why.

Instructions

During a recent interview with a new hire, a candidate was asked several discriminatory interview questions. The candidate filed a claim with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC). After your organization’s chief executive officer (CEO) was contacted by an investigator at the EEOC, you, as the newly hired human resources (HR) director, were asked to develop a new recruiting strategy and hiring process that will meet EEOC regulations. This process is needed immediately because a new mid-level manager needs to be hired.

Your CEO has asked you to recommend your strategy for filling this position. Once you develop your strategy, you will then have to prepare a presentation in which you will brief and train the organization’s leadership who will be assisting in this hire.

You will prepare a PowerPoint presentation for this briefing/training. The items below should be addressed in your presentation.

§  Explain at least two federal laws against discrimination that apply to recruiting and hiring employees in your organization. Include what can happen if the laws are violated.

§  Explain the pros and cons of three possible recruiting strategies. Recommend one to be utilized for this hire, and explain why you selected this strategy.

§  State the knowledge, skills, and abilities (KSAs) for the mid-level management position for which you will be hiring. You must have a minimum of three for each area.

§  Develop the job posting for the mid-level manager.

§  Discuss the hiring process and how the hiring decision will be made.

§  Develop five nondiscriminatory interview questions.

§  Discuss what should not be done in the interviews, and give examples of five discriminatory questions that must be avoided; explain why.

§  Discuss any legal considerations to be aware of during the selection process.

Your PowerPoint presentation must be a minimum of 14 slides in length, not counting the title or reference slides. You must utilize the slide notes function in PowerPoint to add speaker notes to each slide; these notes should be used in order to explain or expand on slide content as if you were actually presenting this to your audience. Alternatively, you may add audio to the slides, but if you do so, you will need to provide a transcript of your audio in a separate Word document and upload it in Blackboard in addition to the PowerPoint file.

Analyze and evaluate the country’s cultural and external differences with their respective application to product/service launch.
