    there are probably quicker ways, but one way for the first one would be

    Vilsmeier
    Reduction (eg with borohydride)
    Thionyl Chloride the alcohol.

    for the second reaction one pathway would be

    Borane reduction of the acid group
    thionyl chloride
    ammonia


    There are bound to be numerous other ways of doing these transformations !!
