As the head of accounting, Dan took pride in the efficiency of his
department. Just recently, he and his team had significantly reduced the

annoyed when Janet, his old friend in marketing, told him about her

form the core of the campaign.

time consumers are able to shop around is slowly diminishing.

Discussions around how best to increase supply of bodily material often focus on questions of
donor motivation: how individuals may best be encouraged to donate different forms of bodily
