one-fourth of the Soviet population of the time and destroy over half of its industry ( Pifer et al. 2010 : p. 5). Even this was not considered enough, because one had to take into account the effect of possible Soviet first-strike capability. Thus, to ensure survivability of sufficient capabilities, each leg of the strategic triad had, independently of others, to have this capacity ( Kaplan 1980 : p. 3). The requirement of killing one-fourth of the Soviet population rests on historical experience, since in World War II, the Soviet Union suffered from casualties of

1 Introduction Military organizations are bureaucratic, hierarchical ( Alvinius 2013 ) and meritocratic ( Castilla and Benard 2010 ) in their design, which includes not only inherit challenges but also opportunities for the organizational members. Military organizations have survived for hundreds of years and therefore it is assumed that their design makes the organization functional, alive and proper ( Andrzejewski 1954 ). It is seldom that one associates military organizations with dysfunctional organizational aspects, which is the focus of this study. However

historic acoustical instruments, as well as connections with the nearby medical museum and collection. I wanted to see the collection in person to examine the instruments carefully and in context of other related objects.

JNICT had a very different genesis: it was created in the late period of the dictatorship (1967), strongly entangled with the political power, being brought into being directly under the President of the Council,5 António de Oliveira Salazar, by the influence of Francisco Leite Pinto, a man of science and of the regime.6 It was the first Portuguese institution featuring the term “science policy” in its mission and it would not only survive the revolution but strive under the democratic

use the correct methods in their examinations.61 When the research project ended, the results showed that this last beekeeper was right: contaminated pollen weakened the hives so that they did not survive the winter. The local committee of beekeepers was also right; it was pesticides that killed their bees. Whereas the State Entomologist was wrong; chemical analysis was not always a proper tool when detecting bee poisoning from pesticides.62 Regulations were made, 1941 In July 1939 Rolf Lunder summarised the results of the “investigations concerning possible
