Our Management major programme combines critical
thinking skills with solid theory. You’ll learn skills in
decision-making and problem solving, study the design
of organisations and the way work is managed, long-
term business strategies, control systems, and culture
and politics in organisations. You’ll also build up an
understanding of management information, and issues
specific to managers of national and international
Massey’s Management qualifications are designed to
meet your individual career and industry needs.
The growing tissue then begins
to release more hormones to keep everything in the right condition. How-
ever, if fertilization does not occur, the continued preparations in the
uterus are unnecessary. The body realizes this near the end of the four-
week period of the menstrual cycle. At this time, the level of LH decreases,
the corpus luteum breaks down, and the level of progesterone decreases.
Without this hormone, the uterine lining no longer remains intact.
Instead, the lining breaks down.
In most women, the menstrual cycle continues for at least 40 years
from puberty. Between the ages of 45 and 55, the levels of hormones
change; the menstrual cycle becomes less regular and eventually stops.
This stage, called menopause, marks the point at which a female is no
longer capable of reproducing. Menopause is a normal occurrence in all
women; however, the effects of menopause vary widely from one woman
to another. In men, by contrast, sperm production continues throughout
life, although the number of healthy sperm likely declines with age....
Recent reviews have addressed issues of cigarette smoke
exposure and various facets of reproduction including
delayed time to conception, ovarian effects and premature
menopause, implantation failure, fetal growth restriction
and growth retardation, placental abnormalities, reduced
fecundity, congenital abnormalities, and effects on male
reproduction [32-34]. However, most prior reviews have
not considered smoke's interaction with the oviduct, an
organ vital to reproduction.
joined the academic community after a career in private
practice, the classroom was an alien place to me. I puzzled
over the fact that the students I taught, who were of
the very highest quality, still had trouble grasping the
topics. I began to pay more critical attention to the textbooks
I had selected for them, and I quickly learned the
student perspective of most pathology texts: they are
difficult to read.
Most pathology books are compilations written by
multiple authors, each with a certain writing style and
with differing views about the relative importance of
Reproductive traits describe the animal’s ability to conceive, calve down and suckle the
calf to weaning successfully (Davis 1993). These traits are important since they affect the
herd size and off take. Reproductive performance is commonly evaluated by analysing
female reproductive traits. The traits regularly considered include age at first calving,
calving interval and calving rate. Male fertility traits are rarely included in genetic
evaluations despite their influence on the female reproductive performance.
Being a man should not seriously damage your health, conclude White and Banks
(2004) in their chapter in a men’s health text. The maxim is used at the beginning of
this text to remind the practice nurse of the fact that being a man in some instances
can and does seriously damage their health. Men are much less likely to visit their
general practice than women. Those men who are aged under 45 years visit their
general practice only half as often as women; it is only when they become older that
the gap narrows signifi cantly....
A comparative study of HIV associated
pulmonary tuberculosis (HIV-PTB) was
carried out in Chest Clinics situated in Benin
and Irrua environs of Edo State, Nigeria,
using microscopical and serological
methods. In Irrua environs, HIV-PTB coinfection
is higher in females (12.5%) than in
males (9.2%) but not statistically significant
(P 0.05). In Benin, HIV-PTB is also higher
in females (11.3%) than in males (7.2%) but
not statistically significant (P 0.05). In
Benin, PTB is statistically high among 0.05)....
The links between Women‟s Studies and Cinema are evident. After the women‟s movement, the field of
women‟s studies has allied with almost every discipline to provide an alternative perspective of knowledge and
reality as viewed by the practitioners and academia of the discipline. Feminist theory took up a distinct stance in
relation to the objectification, exclusion and silence of women in cinematic narratives. It also evaluated the
stereotyping of female characters in cinema.
