Exocrine gland

Exocrine glands are glands that secrete substances onto an epithelial surface by way of a duct. Examples of exocrine glands include sweat, mammary, lacrimal and mucous. Exocrine glands are one of two types of glands in the human body, the other being endocrine glands, which secrete their products directly into the bloodstream; the liver and pancreas are both endocrine glands. Exocrine glands contain a glandular portion and a duct portion, the structures of which can be used to classify the gland; the duct portion may be unbranched. The glandular portion may be a mix of the two. If the glandular portion branches the gland is called a branched gland. Exocrine glands are named apocrine glands, holocrine glands, or merocrine glands based on how their products are secreted. Merocrine secretion – cells excrete their substances by exocytosis. Apocrine secretion – a portion of the cell membrane that contains the excretion buds off. Holocrine secretion – the entire cell disintegrates to excrete its substance.

Serous cells secrete proteins enzymes. Examples include gastric chief cells and Paneth cells Mucous cells secrete mucus. Examples include Brunner's glands, esophageal glands, pyloric glands Mixed glands secrete both protein and mucus. Examples include the salivary glands: although the parotid gland 20%is predominantly serous, the sublingual gland 5% mucous gland, the submandibular gland 70%is a mixed serous gland. Sebaceous glands a lipid product; these glands are known as oil glands, e.g. Fordyce spots and Meibomian glands.

Disillusion (Upstairs, Downstairs)

"Disillusion" is the seventh episode of the fifth and final series of the period drama Upstairs, Downstairs. It first aired on 19 October 1975 on ITV. Disillusion was recorded in the studio on 3 and 4 April 1975, the episode marks the final appearance of Karen Dotrice as Lily Hawkins. Gordon Jackson - Hudson Jean Marsh - Rose Angela Baddeley - Mrs Bridges Lesley-Anne Down - Georgina Worsley David Langton - Richard Bellamy Hannah Gordon - Virginia Bellamy Karen Dotrice - Lily Christopher Beeny - Edward Jenny Tomasin - Ruby Gareth Hunt - Frederick Jacqueline Tong - Daisy It is spring 1924, Georgina returns from New York City, having stayed with Elizabeth. Meanwhile, Daisy gets annoyed. A few days while at the Wembley Exhibition, Georgina spots Hudson and Lily together holding hands; that evening she tells Virginia what she saw, Virginia asks Rose if Lily is seeing any one. Rose says she knows nothing, but goes to see Lily and asks her if she is going out with Mr Hudson. Lily tells Rose how he has taken her to concerts and museums.

Soon the whole house knows what has been going on. Hudson explains to Mrs Bridges that Lily brings him hope and joy, he tells Virginia that he has "very deep feelings" for her. Mrs Bridges is upset. Hudson soon gives four weeks notice. Hudson wants to go with Lily on Sunday to see her mother in Banbury to ask for Lily's hand in marriage, however Lily can not bring herself to tell him that she does not love him. On the Sunday morning, having spoken to Georgina, Lily talks to Hudson, hurts him by saying insulting things, including calling him boring; the following morning, Lily leaves 165, Eaton Place without telling anyone and goes back to live with her mother. She leaves a note for Mr Hudson, explaining she did not mean the hurtful things she said the day before, she only wanted to stop him caring for her. Hudson withdraws his resignation, Virginia writes a good reference for Lily. Disillusion was reviewed in The Daily Digest by Richard Afton, who said that the "writers do not appear to be able to sustain the originality and interest of the stories".

Afton said he found himself to be suffering from "extreme inattention". Richard Marson, "Inside UpDown - The Story of Upstairs, Downstairs", Kaleidoscope Publishing, 2005 Updown.org.uk - Upstairs, Downstairs Fansite

Dirty Work (Rolling Stones album)

Dirty Work is the Rolling Stones' 18th British and 20th American studio album. It was released on 24 March 1986 on the Rolling Stones label by CBS Records. Produced by Steve Lillywhite, the album was recorded during a period when relations between Mick Jagger and Keith Richards soured according to Richards' autobiography Life; the album was recorded during a time of turmoil for the band, as the two principal songwriters and Jagger, had been feuding over the band's direction for most of the 1980s. All of the band members had spent the previous several years working on solo albums or side projects. Other band members, including guitarist Ronnie Wood, drummer Charlie Watts, bassist Bill Wyman, were absent from the studio during recording sessions. Additionally it would be the last album to feature former member and frequent contributor on piano Ian Stewart, who died shortly before the album's release; as a result, a large number of guest musicians appeared on the album, including drummers Anton Fig and Steve Jordan, as well as guitarists Jimmy Page and Bobby Womack.

Keyboards were played by Ivan Chuck Leavell, who would remain with the band for decades. Unlike most Stones albums, there was no supporting tour, as the level of animosity among band members prevented them from being able to work together live on stage. While the album sold well, reaching platinum or gold status in several countries, including the US, the UK, peaking as a top-ten-charting album in over a dozen of markets, it was a critical flop, with most critics at the time finding it uneven and uninspired. Journalist Robert Christgau stood alone in his contemporary praise of the album, however re-assessments and retrospective reviews have been kinder; the album spawned two top-40 hits: a cover of Bob & Earl's song "Harlem Shuffle" and the Ronnie Wood-penned "One Hit". The sessions for Dirty Work, the first album under the Rolling Stones' recording contract with CBS Records, began in April 1985 in Paris, running for two months before breaking for a short spell. Mick Jagger had just released his first solo album, She's the Boss, much to Richards' annoyance, since the latter's first priority was the Rolling Stones and he was stung that Jagger was pursuing a career as a pop star.

Jagger was absent from the Dirty Work sessions while Richards recorded with Ronnie Wood, Bill Wyman and Charlie Watts. The divide between Jagger and Richards was on public view on 13 July 1985, when Jagger performed a solo set at Live Aid while Richards and Wood supported Bob Dylan's set on acoustic guitars. Charlie Watts' involvement in the recording sessions was limited. Steve Jordan and Anton Fig play drums on some tracks. Jagger would cite Watts' personal state as one of the reasons he vetoed a tour in support of Dirty Work in 1986, preferring to start work on his second album, Primitive Cool. Four of the album's eight original compositions are credited to Jagger/Richards/Wood and one to Jagger/Richards/Chuck Leavell. Only three are credited to Jagger/Richards, the lowest number on any Rolling Stones album since Out of Our Heads. Dirty Work is the first Rolling Stones record to feature two tracks with Richards on lead vocals. Following a further month of final recording in July and August 1985, co-producer Steve Lillywhite supervised several weeks of mixing and the creation of 12-inch remixes.

On 12 December, Ian Stewart, one of the Stones' founding members and their longtime pianist and road manager, died of a sudden heart attack at the age of 47. As a tribute, a hidden track of Stewart playing Big Bill Broonzy's "Key to the Highway" was added to close the album. Outtakes and demo versions from the Dirty Work sessions are available on various bootlegs, include numbers like: "Strictly Memphis" "You're Too Much" "Treat Me Like a Fool" "She Never Listens to Me" "Loving You Is Sweeter Than Ever" "Deep Love" "What Am I Going to Do with Your Love" "Crushed Pearl" The original vinyl release of Dirty Work came shrinkwrapped in dark red cellophane. Breaking with Rolling Stones tradition, Dirty Work was the first of their studio albums to contain a lyric sheet in the US at the insistence of then-distributor CBS Records. Included was a comic strip, drawn by Mark Marek, called "Dirty Workout". In 2005, Pitchfork Media included the album cover in their list of "The Worst Record Covers of All Time", with Brent DiCrescenzo saying that no other cover "goes so far to tarnish the reputation of a Valhalla-ensconced band while demonstrating the crushing awfulness of 1980s aesthetics".

In March 1986, the Rolling Stones' cover of "Harlem Shuffle" was released to a receptive audience, reaching No. 13 in the UK and No. 5 in the US. The follow-up single "One Hit" was a US top 30 hit and featured a revealing video of Jagger and Richards seeming to trade blows. Dirty Work was released a week after "Harlem Shuffle", reaching No. 4 in the UK and US, but the critical reaction was less than e
