496) Recently, medical science has made it possible to save lives by transplanting body parts from donors to patients who need them. But for some body organs there are not enough to go around, and some patients die before they can obtain a transplant. When only one organ is available and several patients need it for survival, the organ could be assigned to a patient by one of the following procedures: By auction: The organ is assigned to the patient who can pay the most for it; By first come, first served: the organ is assigned to the patient who has been waiting the longest.; By lottery: The organ is assigned to the patient whose name is drawn at random; By merit: The organ is assigned to the patient who can make the greatest contribution to others and society. A. Which of these procedures should be used to assign the organ among the patients who need it for survival: auction, first come/first served, lottery, or merit? (ORGANSB)

610) Problems often come up in life. Sometimes they're personal problems -- people are very unhappy, or nervous and irritable all the time. Sometimes there are problems in a marriage -- a husband and wife just can't get along with each other. Or, sometimes it's a personal problem with a child or a job. I'd like to ask you a few questions now about what you think a person might do to handle problems like this. For instance, let's suppose you had a lot of personal problems and you're very unhappy all the time. Let's suppose you've been that way for a long time, and it isn't getting any better.
