The X and Y game What is a game where you have four persons to a team, and each person shows an X and Y card each round and according to what each other person, including themselves shows they get a certain number of points added on or taken off? What is the meaning of this game? What does it show? This game shows how individual people act in a group. When every person in a group cooperates something gets done, but if people are out for themselves, and fail to recognize that they are in this together, and together, then while one person may win, the group fails. It symbolizes many different situations greatly. In the groups today there were the type of people that did not care, and thought that it was just a class game, and what could be done. These people do not just exist in the classroom setting, but in the world too. These people just think of life as a game. These people are the people who waist their lives, and do not make the best of it. They do not care what "cards" they throw, because after all it is jut their lives. Although there were a select few that acted like this, these were not the only types of "players" in "the game." There were people who thought only for themselves, and made whatever choices they could to get ahead. Those people tried to get ahead, knowing that a majority of people will try to help everyone used that to their advantage. These people, while having the highest grade amongst their group, lost with their group, because their team mate's negative points brought the whole group down so low that it did not matter how high their own points were. These people were greedy, and were not looking out for anyone but themselves, but not everyone had that same attitude. There were the people who after finally figuring out how the "game" worked helped other people including themselves, and tried to bring the group as a whole up with themselves. These people are the people in life who get involved, and try to not only better their own
Generation X and Millennium Generation
Travel through time is one of the most enigmatic, imaginative, and scientifically daring concepts that had occupied the minds of many people centuries ago and will continue into the future. Nonetheless, not employing any time-machine contraptions, modern archeologists and paleontologists are traveling back in time more than anybody else. They examine the rich iridium layer in Wyoming’s clay deposits and take exploratory tours back to early Cretaceous period….

Douglas McGregor 's XY Theory, managing an X Theory boss, and William Ouchi 's Theory Z
Douglas McGregor, an American social psychologist, proposed his famous X-Y theory in his 1960 book 'The Human Side Of Enterprise '. Theory x and theory y are still referred to commonly in the field of management and motivation, and whilst more recent studies have questioned the rigidity of the model, Mcgregor 's X-Y Theory remains a valid basic principle from which to develop positive….
types of scientific theories, theory X and theory Y. He relates these two theories on two managers (Dave and Val) who are in the same organization (Telecommunication company), however in different departments. He continues to talk about how they use their management skills on their employees based on theory X and theory Y.

In modern organizations, there is no need for Theory X elements as propounded by Douglas McGregor. Discuss with relevant examples.
Douglas McGregor examined theories on behaviour of individuals and formulated two models which he calls Theory X and Theory Y.
Theory X assumes that the average human being has an inherent dislike for work and will avoid it if he can.
As A result of their dislike for work, most people must be controlled and threatened before they will work hard enough.
In Malaysia, most of the employees are from Gen-Y generation. They have skills, education background and other characteristic that needed by an organization in order to move forward. With the knowledgeable they have, Gen-Y tend to become job hopper which have make them change job frequently in a short term to seek other jobs with a greater promotion. This trend has been practiced by them to satisfy themselves as a reward for their time sacrifices with study for years.
There is no denying….

Exercise 9: The Prokaryotes
Prokaryotes are subdivided into archaebacteria and eubacteria.
Archaebacteria - no peptidoglycan in cell wall
Ex. Halob acterium
Eubacteria - has peptidoglycan in cell wall
Eubacteria - can be differentiated by Gram staining
Gram positive: purple-blue, mostly peptidoglycan susceptible to penicillin
Gram negative: pink-red, less peptidoglycan, has lipopolysaccharides, susceptible to EDTA
Gram negative can be further differentiated into….
Demographers have named the different generations around today as Veterans, Baby Boomers, Generation X, Generation Y and Generation Z.Here I’ve tried to analyze Gen X & Gen Y.
The moniker Generation X was coined by Douglas Coupland, who chose the unknown variable “X” to describe a generation that defies definition.Members of Generation X are largely in their 30’s and early 40’s. On the whole, they are more ethnically diverse and….
Theory X and Theory Y represent two sets of assumptions about human nature and human behavior that are relevant to the practice of management. Theory X represents a negative view of human nature that assumes individuals generally dislike work, are irresponsible, and require close supervision to do their jobs. Theory Y denotes a positive view of human nature and assumes individuals are generally industrious, creative, and able to assume responsibility and exercise self-control in their jobs. One would….
the last couple of centuries and there have been a number of different theories into the best way it can be done. This essay will give some background knowledge into those theories but will primarily focus on McGregor’s development of his Theory X and Theory Y, incorporating how they evolved, what they are and how relevant they are to managers of the 21st century. The aim of this piece is to gain a better understanding of the theories of management developed by McGregor and how/if they are still being….
