Unit 1
  1. The purpose of making a decision is to establish and achieve organizational goals and objectives.
  2. Managers must make a best guess at what the future will be and try to leave as little as possible to chance.
  3. For managers, every decision has constraints based on policies, procedures, laws, precedents, and the like.

  5. Decision makers must have some way of determining which of several alternatives is best-that is, which contributes the most to the achievement of organizational goals.

  14. Astronomers and scientists think that a black hole is a region of space into which matter has fallen and from which nothing can escape.
  15. The collapse of a star may produce a White Dwarf or a neutron star-a star, whose matter is so dense that it continually shrinks by the force of its own gravity.
  16. Imagine the earth reduced to the size of a marble, but still having the same mass and a stronger gravitational pull, and you have some idea of the force of a black hole.

  38. Of these 20,000, just under 2000 are being exploited and abused by their employers.
  39. In one of them, a Filipino maid was executed in Singapore after being convicted of murder, despite protests from various quarters that her guilt had not been adequately established.
  40. I was supposed to be paid £120 but I never received that amount.

  59. The robots used in nuclear power plants handle the radioactive materials, preventing human personnel from being exposed to radiation.
  60. Robots differ from automatic machines in that after completion of one specific task, they can be reprogrammed by a computer to do another one.
  61. Other engineers are writing new programs allowing robots to make decisions such as whether to discard defective parts in finished products.
