In addition to the specialised endocrine organs mentioned above, many other organs that are part of other body systems, such as bone, kidney, liver, heart and gonads, have secondary endocrine functions.
For example the kidney secretes endocrine hormones such as erythropoietin and renin. A number of glands that signal each other in sequence are usually referred to as an axis, for example, the hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal axis. As opposed to endocrine factors that travel considerably longer distances via the circulatory system, other signaling molecules, such as paracrine factors involved in paracrine signalling diffuse over a relatively short distance. The word endocrine derives from the Greek words ἐνδο- endo- "inside, within," and κρίνειν krinein "to separate, distinguish".

Lili Feng and et al. Jim Rohn - Three Keys To Greatness. Commonly Misused Words. We all know that internet chatters use their own slang, and we have a dictionary to help translate that; but another trend among web users is not using the correct version of words. Because of the net and text messaging, many teens simply don't know the difference between words that sound the same, or which version of a homonym to use (let alone how to spell homonym.. it's not hominym).
Since not everybody owns a copy of Strong Bad's Rythm N' Grammar, we've tried to do our part to help by compiling a list of the most common internet misspellings. Accept, Except - Accept means to receive, while except means to exclude.
