    motivated employee. The employee would become a “jack of all trades”. On the other side of the coin, the new work can produce increased stress and decreased motivation. In those cases, management would have to apply actions to ensure that the integration of the enriched roles will be more successful. What was the impact of job enrichment on motivation and communication in the HIS Departments? One of the potential impacts of this enrichment process was turfism and lack of team spirit (Layman E, 2011). Because enrichment results in employees taking more ownership of their roles, turfism can arise. This can block team intercommunication. In order to counterbalance this effect, management should provide employees with more opportunities to have social interactions and to collaborate with one another (Layman E 2011). Motivation can also be effected by this enrichment process. In many of the problems stemming from restructuring were presented, job enrichment was presented as a solution to motivation. According to mindtools.com: “When your work assignments reflect a good level of skill variety, task identity, task significance, autonomy, and feedback, members of your team are likely be much more content, and much less stressed. Enriched jobs lead to more satisfied and motivated workers” (Job Enrichment). This supports the premise of job enrichment in the article. In conclusion, we can learn from this article, that there are many ways to accomplish goals, and motivate employees.…

  • Political Cyber Warfare

    governments and use every possible method to achieve their goals (Janczewski 2). Then, can cyber-warfare be considered as a traditional war in political view even if it does not generate casualties? Craig Greathouse says it is narrow-minded to define cyber-warfare with only the number of casualties. He indicates how cyber-warfare has changed its essence and attributes to understand it politically (30). The controversial issue related to cyber-warfare has discussed how different it is compared to…

  • Future Of Nuclear Energy

    Three Mile Island, and Fukishima. The second reactor that was created is called the molten salt nuclear reactor. To this day the second reactor still is yet to exist. Basic nuclear reactors produce weapons grade uranium and plutonium which is used in nuclear bombs. In the height of the cold war the U.S. government opted for this option in preparation for nuclear war and the molten salt nuclear reactor faded into the past as a distant memory. For over 50 years the world has accepted the basic…

  • Iran Nuclear Weapons Problem

    recent, the struggle to rid Iran of its nuclear capabilities has seen heightened debate on whether a deal has the power to do so. Through a span of twelve years, this deal, most commonly referred to as the Iran deal, has seen negotiations with the five major members of the U.N. Within this deal there is a desire to eliminate the possibility for Iran to create nuclear weapons; by confiscating crucial necessities to the process plutonium and uranium, as well as implementing the supervision of…

  • Atomic Bombs In H. G. Wells's Novel, The World Set Free

    understandings of the nature of atoms. In 1898 France, Paris, Pierre and his wife Marie Curie discovered a new substance within an ore of Uranium that they named radium that emitted large amounts of (as we now call) radioactivity. Ernest Rutherford and Frederick Soddy Identified that atoms can break down and turn into different elements. For example if a block of uranium were left alone for 4.5 billion years, around 45% of it would turn into lead. Hopes for scientists around the world were…

  • Nuclear Energy Pros And Cons

    reaction produces energy is by producing heat. The heat evaporates water that spins turbines that then produces energy. The heat required to produce these massive amounts of energy is massive, the nuclear decay of uranium atoms can release energy that heats the water to up to about 520 degrees Fahrenheit. Reactions of this kind additionally release plenty of energy. Wherever will the energy come back from? If you create terribly correct measuring of the plenty of all the atoms and subatomic…

  • Shearon Harris Nuclear Power Plant Case Study

    Shearon Harris Nuclear Power Plant is located 20 miles southwest of Raleigh, NC. It is a 900 megawatt facility, which provided energy to 550,000 households. Enriched uranium (uranium dioxide pellets) is used as the fuel in the plant, which is 2-3% uranium 235. Cooling is necessary and the plant uses 800-2,600 gallons of water per megawatt hour. U-235 will decay into U-238, which is the primary waste product. Please see the PhET Simulations website for multiple simulations about nuclear…

    This usually happens because the reactor core of the power plant overheats due to the inadequate process of cooldown or something happened to the rods which regulate the chain reaction. This makes the fission chain reaction unstoppable and will cause the reactor core to explode, and also it will melt the uranium rods in the process. When it explodes, there is a release of nuclear fallout because this is a nuclear explosion. Nuclear fallout is very dangerous as it contains high amounts of…

  • Atomic Bomb: Composition, Explosion

    planned for the next 30 years. On the other hand, the number of nations that have nuclear weapons has actually declined over the last twenty-five years, from eleven to nine. Amidst all this, lets understand the atomic bomb and its composition and explosion. What is an Atomic Bomb? Atomic bomb, also called as Atom Bomb, is a weapon with great explosive power that is a result of the sudden release of energy upon the splitting, or fission, of the nuclei of heavy elements such as plutonium or…

    much less the price of natural radium. (TheBigger.com, 2011) In 1930s more work on this was done by Enrico Fermi, which focused on using slow neutrons to increase the effectiveness of induced radioactivity. Experiments bombarding uranium with neutrons led Fermi to believe he had created a new, transuranic element, which was dubbed Neptunium. (Neptunium, n.d) In 1938, chemists Otto Hahn and Fritz Strassmann, with physicist Lise Meitner and Meitner 's nephew, Otto Robert Frisch, continues further…
